Destiny Is Something Special: Thoughts and Impressions From the Destiny Beta

July 29, 2014 // 4 Comments

I said I would refrain from posting my Destiny Beta impressions until the beta went offline, and sadly that time has come. So it’s time to begrudgingly write that piece and reflect upon many hours spent as an Awoken male Hunter. Despite saying I would spend more time with all three classes in the beta, I didn’t actually do that. I leveled up a Warlock to a measly level three and didn’t even bother with a Titan. I played the entire beta really with the same Hunter and had him fully maxed out (including all the extras you could upgrade after hitting the level eight cap) within [...]

Hands On With Bungie’s Destiny; Impressions From the Destiny Alpha

June 17, 2014 // 0 Comments

During Sony’s E3 conference a week ago, they announced that PS4 owners could sign up now to get in a special alpha session of Destiny beginning Thursday and ending Sunday night. Already super excited for Destiny for over a year (but especially since the E3 2013 reveal of it), I of course signed up immediately. Luckily, I was able to snag an alpha code from Bungie’s Twitter within four seconds of it being posted on Wednesday to get in the alpha a day earlier. Everyone who registered on the Sony site for the alpha got a code, so I ended up giving away my second code to a random user [...]

DEMOED! EA Sports UFC First Impressions

June 4, 2014 // 3 Comments

The demo for EA Sports UFC dropped yesterday on PS4 and Xbox One, and after spending an hour or so with it I’m beginning to like it… slowly. Much like EA Sports MMA, I find the controls to be needlessly complicated and not really thoroughly explained in the tutorial. If you came out of the tutorial understanding the submission system, then please explain it to me because I still don’t get it after quite a few fights. I understand the basic premise of it, but I just don’t get it. In time, I’m sure I will, but frankly I think the tutorial could be better. After [...]

Quick Beyond: Two Souls Demo Impressions

September 29, 2013 // 0 Comments

Beyond: Two Souls, the latest from Quantic Dreams, hits store shelves on October 8th, but the demo drops this Tuesday (October 1st). GameStop was giving away PSN vouchers to download the demo a week early over on Facebook so I snagged one of those and ended up playing  through the demo last night. I never played Heavy Rain, outside of the demo. I didn’t care for the Heavy Rain demo at all. After playing this demo, I’m pretty sure that if you like Heavy Rain you’ll like this. Having said that, I actually enjoyed it (i.e. this style of game) this time. For the most part. [...]
