  1. Now then, here's another first impression/review/blog thingamabob. Today I will give you my first impressions on Dead Space 3, having played it for a couple of hours. Gameplay: Dead Space 3 uses the same gameplay formula as the previous two games. You shoot away at things from a third person perspective. Again, Isaac Clarke is dismembering necromorphs. Dismembering enemies is an efficient, foolproof tactic to neutralize the threat (at least a little, if not completely) and deal extra damage to the poor bastards. And I absolutely love it. Somehow I found myself strongly disliking the few firefights with human enemies so far, though. And the checkpoint save system. Storyline: Story-wise, Dead Space 3 continues where the previous game left off. Isaac has succesfully stopped two necromorph invasions, but now a third one has struck. And so Isaac grabs the trusty plasma cutter once more, but it does take a little convincing from the military. Isaac even has somewhat of a nemesis this time: Jacob Danik. Somehow the story doesn't seem as appealing to me in Dead Space 3 as in the previous two games.
  2. Now that I've played Bioshock Infinite for a while (that is if 4.5 hours in 3 days counts as a "while"), I thought I would share my first impressions of the game with you. Gameplay: Gameplay-wise, the game doesn't offer anything ground-breakingly new. You have a gun in your hand and another one in your pocket, you have a shield that regenerates (thank God the actual health doesn't regenerate), and you can use different powerups known as Vigors. The Vigors are a nice addition, though, and in a pinch, you have your faithful companion Elizabeth to help you out by throwing you a med kit or some ammo. Even on Easy difficulty, the combat can get nicely challenging at times, but then again, it might only be because I'm a noob at modern "duck 'n' cover" shooters, as I call them. Storyline: While the gameplay doesn't feel fully appealing to me, the storyline is what makes Bioshock Infinite as addictive as it is. Without spoiling too much, there are a lot of twists. Keep in mind that I have not finished the game yet when I'm writing this, but so far, the story of the game has gotten me extremely hooked. A prime example of the addictiveness the story of Bioshock Infinite provides is the 2-hour session I played earlier today. Elizabeth: I just have to give my impression of Elizabeth too. In a nutshell, she is a very interesting personality. And that concludes my first impressions of Bioshock Infinite. Please bear in mind that these first impressions are based solely on my own opinion of the game.

  4. Notch Reveals New Space Game

    Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson has revealed his new game. Called 0x10c, the space title is still early in the development process, but includes an intriguing set of features. Here's how the game is explained on the official site: "Each ship has a generator capable of producing a fixed wattage, and everything you connect to it drains wattage. A cloaking field, for example, might require almost all the power from the generator, forcing you to turn off all computers and dim all lights in order to successfully cloak." Other features include 'lots of engineering,' a 'fully working computer system,' space combat between computer-controlled and human opponents, lots of looting, mining and trading and connected single-player and multiplayer experiences. It will also apparently feature duct tape, so there's that. Expect more soon, and in the meantime you can try to find a catchy way to pronounce the title.
