Halo 4: A Non Shooter Fan's Initial Impressions

As any of my readers would know, I am no longer much of a shooter fan. Gone are the days and nights soaked in blood and filled with the acrid smoke of grenades gone boom. Most of my video game playtime consists of me playing XBLA games and RPG's (right now I am playing Code of Princess on the 3DS). When I do play shooters, they are almost always 3rd person rather than first, and also not shooters in the sense of the word I use (think Gears of War or Vanquish). The ones I play are more in the vein of Dead Space and Resident Evil. Action horror games, basically. Those and OLD SCHOOL shooters aka shmups like Geometry Wars and Score Rush.

However, there are those times (usually herbally ameliorated) that I find myself playing a shooter. Usually one of the COD games with friends. Or, in the case of the last few days, some Halo 4 co-op campaign. These sessions are usually fairly fun but inevitably result in a rapid onset of absolute boredom.

Not last night.

Damn. 


Gorgeous take on the old school, with a twist (no lives, you are timed, and each enemy killed adds time to the clock).

Gametrailers: Apparently Full of SHIT

Perfect Dark: Zero Review Score:


Recently, GT posted a video:



......


So wait. The game is a 9/10, but then it shows up in a video about the worst sequels of all time, in which it is described as an atrocious game?

Uh......Which is it, GT? Amazing, or Shit?

Syko Shadow's 2009 Gaming Shout-Outs

In preparation for the end of 2010, I will be re-posting/re-writinging a blog exactly one year old from GameTrailers.com. It is my version of a gaming award show, except for a couple of things:

1) I give just as much recognition to the runners-up as the winner of each category
2) I don't whore out to mainstream crap
3) I'm not Spike TV

So without further ado, let's go back in time and remember the best (and a few of the worst) games of last year, 2009!
