Ben's Week In Review: January 24

There is a scratch in the hood of my car. It's shallow and easily fixable and yet...oh so annoying. Anywho.

Anybody else intrigued by L.A. Noire?

I know what the really ardent news-hunters will say: "where have you been?" Yes, well, bear in mind that I handle the news pretty much every single day of the year and I'm well aware that L.A. Noire has been a recognizable name for years. But I never latch onto a game when there's little to no info available; I'm far too busy to get excited about a project that's 98% mysterious. However, every once in a while, all I need is one detail to arouse my interest. Such a detail came this past week with the knowledge that the crimes in this game will be based on real-life crimes from 1947. The idea that a designer actually had to go through newspapers from that year, locate specific events and crimes, and place them into the database for implementation into the game...am I the only one who thinks that's awesome? I mean, this puts such an atmospheric tinge of authenticity onto the project, something that no Grand Theft Auto ever featured.

That being said, I am going to have learn more about the gameplay. If we're supposed to be solving these crimes, is it more of a mystery CSI-like game, or are we just chasing down the perpetrators all the time? It'll be very interesting to see the decision Rockstar has made concerning the controls and gameplay. They say we should expect something pretty darn special from L.A. Noire and supposedly, they'll dish next month. I'll be keeping a close eye on that.

Heavy Rain might actually make me buy some DLC

For the most part, while I certainly understand the benefit of DLC, I just don't have the time or motivation to get any of it. As much as I love certain games, I'm always forced to move on if I want to keep up. Not only do I have to review a bunch of games I wouldn't normally play, I have my own list of titles I need to complete, so DLC usually falls by the wayside. Why am I going back to play a game I completed a month ago - regardless of how good it is - when I've got three new games sitting there, waiting to be played? Still, certain companies are starting to cause me to break down. I've already resolved to get those two DLC packs for Assassin's Creed II just because that game is bad-ass and I really want to see more of the cities. And then I heard about the Heavy Rain DLC and I might be sold on that, too. See, I really don't care about random little cosmetic upgrades via DLC but if the extra content will actually add to the story, give me all new places to explore, and simply expand on the gameplay, I'm far more likely to try it.

And considering that Heavy Rain is all about the story, being able to learn more about the primary characters is a definite bonus. And no, I'm not going to whine about the possibility that Quantic Dream purposely left this content out so as to charge extra for it later. In some cases, I do believe that, but I'm not so bitter or skeptical to believe that all DLC is simply designed to rip us off.

Personal gaming update

I'm still working my way through Bayonetta and Halo 3: ODST. I maintain that the former is deserving of any praise it has received; it features the most demanding and accomplished combat mechanic of any action game this generation. Whether you love or hate the style, you can't deny this. I'm talking about the Xbox 360 version, though; if Platinum Games does do a sequel, they had best not screw over PS3 owners again. And if it's a spin-off...oh dear God, no. As for ODST, let me just say this: I've played every Halo there is through to completion. I like 'em all. Like ODST, too. It's also nothing more than an expansion for Halo 3; there's nothing even remotely new about it. In fact, none of these games change much at all...ever. If we get the same ol' same ol' from Halo: Reach, I'm done with that franchise.

I know there are a lot of games set for February but I've decided that Bioshock 2 (February 9) and Heavy Rain (February 23) take precedence over the others. I definitely want to try White Knight Chronicles and Dante's Inferno but they'll just have to wait. And didn't the new Splinter Cell get delayed...? It was originally set to release on the same day as Heavy Rain, which was annoying. I love all the SCs and I play all those, too. If it's delayed, it gives me more time and I'm happy.

That's it. Watching the Australian Open. Looks like Nadal has his hands full with Karlovic...and Ana Ivanovic is out early again. Now I have no reason to watch women's tennis for the rest of the tournament...what I need is a house with a tennis court and ask Ana over to play. She'll win...and I won't care. She'll be all sweaty...she'll need a shower...and...stuff...;)

yup splinter cell conviction has been delayed......... AGAIN!
as if the heartbreak i had to suffer last year was not enough.
now i have to wait till april 28th to get my stealth game fix.
o how i wish crystal dynamics were still making games.
i need a new pandemonium game, o and add a oddworld game to that list.
i wish there were more stealth based games, the stealth mission in uncharted 2 was my favorite.
many found it tedious and annoying but its nice to see a franchise mix up the gameplay a little bit.
less FPS, RPGs, TPS and more combat racing, survival horror, platforming and stealth based games please.

One of my friends got me Darksiders for my birthday (Monday), it's a decent hack/slash and I'm liking the journey. I got another copy of inFamous because my little niece decided that my first copy was part of her tea set and was using the disc as a coaster, she's only 3 so all I could do was laugh.

I'm kinda torn on what to get in Feb. Well not with Heavy Rain because I'm getting that day one. Bioshock 2 is on my list and so is Dante's Inferno, and as for WKC I'll be getting it but not playing right away.

Still waiting for GoWIII, arrg! And off topic some of my friends took me to see Avatar and I want the 3 hours of my life back, d@mn Dances with Wolves in Space. Well at least it was pretty to look at. Had to watch the Aliens and Terminator 2 special editions to get that taste out of my mouth.

Anywho, over and out.

Why does Halo get five strikes before it's out?

I haven't played ODST but I thought it was supposed to breath new life into the Halo franchise with a new character and some new game mechanics. Sounds rather disappointing.

Oh, and if you look at Halo Wars it would be six strikes by the time you get to Reach, but I'm guessing a lot of people passed on that RTS crud. I know I did.

The characters are meaningless because there's little to no back story and the only new mechanic is the visor, which just lights up the darkness in a cool way.

Other than that, it's absolutely no different than Halo 3.

It's a shame you don't care for Mass Effect, there Ben. It's looking to be a truly awesome successor to the first. Can't wait for Tuesday. Then my Xbox gets a rest for the remainder of the year. lol. Heavy Rain, God of War 3, FFXIII, WKC, AvP, Bioshock 2..Gonna be a busy few months.

Gonna have to fit school in there somewhere too...

I'm kinda tempted by ME2 but I doubt my comp could run it that well, plus I'm not done with DA:O yet.
Which means I'm most excited for Bioshock 2 since it was made in about the same time it took to localize WKC's. There needs to be a tonne of stuff added to come anywhere near to justifying that.
Maybe I'll pick it up after I get bored with GoW3, which could be a while.

i moved just before the first of the year and just got my internet hooked up at the new place like 2 days ago. i have been missing posting on this site lol.

this has been an interesting week. i met a 24 year old juggalette striper that likes to play video games ha ha. (no i wasnt at the strip club, she just happens to do that) she tried to pull the "xbox is better card" then we sat down and messed around on my ps3. i have a poster of little big planet on my bedroom wall and she asked about it. so i put it in and within about 20 minutes to a half hour of just that game she says "you win" out of no where. when i asked what she was talking about, she said "you win playstation is better" ha ha ha.

my bday is in 2 weeks. bioshock 2 and heavy rain are comin out and i will have my taxes soon. somewhere in there i will have the money for those 2 and just for the hell of it i may just pay off that collectors edition god of war 3 before it comes out

L.A. Noire is starting to sound pretty interesting. I will definitely be on the lookout for more info.

I pre-ordered WKC and Heavy Rain. The free dlc for Heavy Rain is a welcome bonus. Hopefully I'll be ready to start GOW3 when it releases. It's a day one purchase even if I'm still playing the other two games.

I'm excited about L.A Noire, Mafia II, Yakuza 3, GTAV and any other driving sand box game out there. I still play GTAIV every now and then. If I had the chance I'd go back to San Andreas and Vice City and probably The Getaway. I just love those games. Though I haven't tried Saints Row :P

Heavy Rain is a MUST buy and FFXIII is mandatory and 2010 World Cup is a necessity. Those are the 3 games am definitely getting. Bioshock 2, Dante's Inferno etc would have to wait.

Been playing some more Rock Band and a bit more Infamous. Right now I'm in agony
Just begun playing FFVII which is awesome. Ironically I can't get enough of Crazy Taxi as I had just downloaded this for the Go.
C'com!! Sega just a Sonic Adventure bundle and you've got a win!!

After Thursday I've just spent £50 on itunes for the first time, finally I can buy some albums which are impossible to find in stores like Rising Force and Trilogy from Yngwie Malmsteen.
Great has all of this is bringing me back to Dragonball Raging Blast even though AAC isn't supported though custom soundtracks so the psp Go is the only way more me for now till I get a laptop or the smallest PC ever for my room!!
Anyway I haven't even completed Bionic Commando, Borderlands,Mirrors Edge,infamous or Killzone 2 heck I even started playing FFXII and I'm now anticipating WKC oh f*** I haven't even got the energy to play Infamous which I'm loving at the moment.

I played Bayonetta on my ps3 and sadly it didn't do it for me. Personally the character wasn't sexy, face awesome but too broad shoulders, look like a transvestite. White knight Chronicles I think is gonna rock, looks like FFXII, but with a Monster Hunter vibe.

Her accent didn't match her body in Bayonetta

FFXIII and Dante's Inferno on my radar, the rest can wait.

As for LA Noire, apparently the hype doesn't seem to be affecting me so I don't care what is it until it comes out.

How about those Saints! We've waited a long time for them to make it to the Superbowl.

Good god it's going to be party town USA down there if the Saints win the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl first and then the weekend after Mardi Gras if I'm remembering right. Jesus can you imagine the parade if they do win?

I'm not a Saints fan, but I'm glad they beat the Vikings, who smashed my team last week.

They are ranked as the NFL's #1 most losing team in history and I think it's awesome they finally made it. Thanks for not being hard on them. One thing here in Louisiana that has always been great is the FOOD!

Peyton being from New Orleans is kinda funny I think. The Colts are going to be extremely tough to beat. Lots of respect for them. Looking forward to the game.

Edit: Thanks for the congrats.

L.A. Noire looks like GTA: Dick Tracy.
