Opinion: Call of Duty: Black ops II

Hey guys, its Dead-Pool here and im here to talk something about the new activision game Black ops II. This is the sequel of Black Ops, in this game you control Alex Mason son, David Mason.                                                  
First of all im going to talk about story mode. In this game the story is good not like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare but is good. You also can doing missions playing as Alex Mason. In the story you have to stop the plans of Raul Menedez. And this the first Call of Duty game that you can create a class as you want, is like multiplayer, you have to unlock the weapons after you want use it.            
 MULTIPLAYER!!!!!, i cant say anything wrong of this, the weapons are very nice and Tomahawk and the Crossbow return, YEAHHHHHH. You can play in a lot of maps and they are very varied, ones on the desert, other in jungles and also in a famous actor Hollywood house, and if you pre-order the game you got the new version of Nuketown.

You can also play ZOMBIES, this mode is really fun, particulary if you play with friends, and the new mode Tranzit is awesome i didnt play it yet but looks very good. You can also get special weapons but you have create it. You can create like a knife but in a speed that you can kill 50 zombies in 1 minute and other ones that i not remember.

Conclusion: If you have money and you like the zombies and FPS, just buy this game.

Retro Review:Mega man X

I dont like this game...

After 6 games of the old stuff, people started losing the interest on mega man, with the 5th and 6th games being not that innovative, so capcom decided to release a game that will destroy all perspectives and use 16-bit power with the help of the SUPER NINTENDO!!!!


The Story: This game takes place 100 years after the original mega man games took place, A human archaeologist named Dr. Cain discovers the ruins of a robotics research facility that had once been operated by the legendary robot designer Dr. Thomas Light Among the ruins, Cain finds a large capsule which contains a highly advanced robot with human-level intelligence and emotions called Megaman X, he develops a new kinds of robot based on X called Reploids who eventually start being mass-produced, but some start to go crazy and go Maverick, Cain then makes an elite police called "Maverick Hunters" and their leader is a powerful reploid called Sigma, after a while he goes maverick and most of the hunters also go maverick and declares to destroy humanity, so X and Zero (The only hunters left) go to hunt Sigma and the other mavericks. Story is pretty good for a super nintendo game and it is actually even more developed in the remake for the psp.

The Gameplay:
Add caption
At the beginning of the game X controls like the original Mega man with 1 diference, you can wall-jump, it truly changes the gameplay in terms of level design giving tons of exploration, after you beat the intro stage you can choose between 8 stages, each one with a maverick to beat and when you beat them you get a new attack, these mavericks are:
-Storm Eagle
-Boomer Kuwanger
-Chill penguin
-Launch Octopus
-Armored Armadillo
-Spark Mandrill
-Sting Chamaleon
-Flame Mammoth
Within the levels you will diferent upgrades that will make 
Without armor
you stronger and more powerful than before, like heart tanks, sub-tanks and most importantly, armor pieces
With all the armor
You can find armor pieces that give all new abilities, 4 parts, Head Part, Body Part, Arm Part, Leg Part.
The Head Part lets you destroy blocks with your head (Mario will be proud)
The body part reduces the damage by 50%
The Arm part lets you charge the special weapons and charge your X-Buster even more.
The leg part lets you dash, and thats one of the main diferences from the original games, the dash lets you go faster and mixed with the wall-jump things are even faster.
After beating all the mavericks you can go to Sigma"s base and fight him(not before a series of levels and boss fights).
Look at that background!

The graphics!:
The game looks really nice for the Super nintendo, the backgrounds and the sprites look well designed and pretty cool.

The music:
The soundtrack is really good, the music is relaxing and its fun to listen to the songs, Storm eagle and the boss fight theme are my favorite but all the music is good overall.

The replay value!:
The game is so fun that it can replayed a lot, not as much as other X games but its still really fun.

Mega Man X is a game that you should try, maybe its kinda old but its still really fun, while the future X games will improve the formula and try new things, this one deserves a shot, it doesnt matter if its the PSP remake or the original, try it out.

An 8 means the game does a great job and the mistakes are not that noticeable.

See ya later!!!

Fact of the day #17

In honor of the review coming
out tomorow!.
Originally Megaman X was going to begin the first game with the dash feature, but capcom got scared old megaman fans will say "No slide, this isnt megaman", so instead made it an unlockable and fans loved it.

First impressions: Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto series is back with a game that probably satisfacts the player the most, killing everything you want to kill, destroying the city, stealing cars, so awesome, GTA 1 and 2 were a bit primitive but still fun and GTA 3 changed everything, the games now are so much fun, and a new one has been announced, so lets talk about it.

This was the first screenshot that make Rockstar Games to let us know that the graphics of this game are going to be amazing, you can also see that there is going to be great cars, this car looks like a Lamborgini.

And today Rockstar games is going to publish the second trailer that will make us know what characters are going to be in this game,
below is the link of the second trailer, i cant uploaded because takes lot of time and i have to publish this today, enjoy it.

#2 trailer:

Opinion of trailer: When i saw it for first time, i get really exicted to play this game, the graphics looks incredible compared to GTA IV and the story characters look very cool, also the missions are going to be awesome, if you see in the trailer with the train crush and the motocycle race, you know this game would be awesome. I think 2013 will going to be a great fight to win the Game of the year, GTA V, the new Super smash bros game, the naughty dog game The last of us, the new God of war, and a lot more games that we would see the next year.

If you dont see the first trailer, you got it too:

Review: Minecraft

In May 2009, a "cave game" began development in a try to make a sandbox game in which you will have to destroy many blocks and then gather them to build things, this game evolved during the way and nowadays in 2012 is it known as Minecraft 1.4, so how does it hold up as a pc game, a mobile game and a Xbox360 game?, lets find out.

Im helping too!(Deadpool), this is going to be a rare ocasion in which we are doing the review together!,
shall we begin?


Minecraft Review!

The story! has none
Dont mess with him, hes tough
well in terms of story the only thing is the ending, to get to the end and beat the powerful Enderdragon, to do this you have to go to many quests and collect object that you will need like blaze rods, ender pearls, Eye of Ender, Diamond, Obsidian, Iron and many more. Yeah... thats it.

The gameplay!
Creative mode item selection
This game has 2 diferent modes for now, Creative and Survival modes.

In creative mode you can build and make anything you want considering you have all the blocks in the game and they are infinite, you cant die or lose anything so if you like building you are going to enjoy this mode.

In survival mode things are much diferent....YOU HAVE TO DO ALL BY YOURSELF(if you are playing in your own world and not in a server).

"Not bad"
You have to do your things all by yourself, if you want a house, you have to build it with materials that you find out in your way to survive, also you have to eat because you have a energy bar which if gets to 0, your health will start to degenerate, if youre playing on hard mode you will die of hunger.
The game has a get X then use X to get Y and then use Y to get Z, you first make tools with wood which is pretty weak but then you get stone which is all right, then after a bit of mining you get Iron and the Iron tools are pretty cool, but then
That awesome moment when you find diamond...
diamond is just amazing, the Diamond Sword wrecks everything, the Diamond Pickaxe and Shovel break everything at lightspeed and its just so awesome to find diamond!

Crafting crafting table :

The first thing that you need to do to survive, is craft the famous Crafting table. You need 4 wooden planks to do it and when you have allready the crafting table, you can everything that you need to survive the nights like a Sword, Pickaxe(if you find Diamond you have to get a iron pickaxe), and lots more stuff.
Crafting furnace with 

Also, you need a furnace, you need 8 pieces of coblestone and a crafting table, you have to put the pieces of the coblestone like in the picture --------------->
With the furnace you can do your iron ores to iron bars, you also can cook your food and you can do windows to decorate your house, but to do all of this, you need a fuel like coal or wooden planks.

First person
Second person
In this game you can play in 1st, 2nd or 3rd person, you can change during you play.
Third person

And if you get bored of exploring, you can get a diamond pickaxe, find and get obsidian and go to the nether!(Which is escencially hell, full of mobs and mysterious things), you can find blazes who are important if you want to get to the end(literally)

After many things happen you"ll find your way to THE END!

Within the worlds you can create you will find prerendered places like ravines, NPC villages where you can trade, Jungles, Swamps, Snowy places and strongholds, home to the end portal...

Oh shi...
Full of Endermans(a really creepy mob), a gloomy atmosphere and just creepiness overall the end is a place where you will find fights so you better be prepared...
If you beat the enderdragon you will go through a last portal and read a beautiful poem that im not going to spoil.

Oh jeez, potions... yay...
What am i seeing?
Also there"s a Enchanting and Brewing system, the enchanting is ok but i dont like the fact that it is completely random and the Brewing is just boring and confusing.

The Graphics:
OK.., im going to say that i like the art style of the game, its just nice, people criticize the game for the graphics... and i have to ask how will you process a game with worlds that big and good graphics without slowdown or making the game archive gigantic?, but still, it could be at least a little better.

The Music:
Heh..., its relaxing i guess but not really memorable.

The replay Value:
Oh geez, the replay value is amazing, playing with friends is really fun, you can do many diferent things and its just so much fun, its amazing how much fun exploration and servers can be!

If you have the money, buy this game, you will enjoy, its amazing in terms of everything and only has a few weak spots.

                                       A 9 means the game excells at every single possible angle and it deserves your money.
See ya later!

Impressions: Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Peabody"s Impressions:Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Ah Paper Mario, the enjoying memories i have with this series, both Paper Mario 64 and TTYD are in my top 20 games of all time, then Super Paper Mario dissapointed me a lot, but then in E32011 we were shown  the first information about a new Paper Mario Game!!!, it was stated to come on holiday 2011...

you freaking trolls..., but then this year we got a release date of 11/11/12!, i was incredibly excited and i was waiting for a long time, now today Paper Mario: Sticker Star comes out and i want to talk about what i think.

After the first trailers i was exited, i though it was going to be like the original Paper Mario in terms of battle and exploration, the sticker system didnt bothered me if it had the same level of exploration, the game itself looked nice, but after i discovered if was a level-based game i got scared, but my worries went away when i discovered how fun the sticker system looked and how the game itself looked, i think that if they use the shop and sticker systems nicely the game is going to be amazing, im buying it in a few days so im exited.

It seems the game is going to do many
diferent things that the other Paper Mario games
like items, The frog Suit, diferent hammers
so awesome!, i cant wait!
What do you think about the game?


Retro-Review:Sonic 3 and Knuckles(1994)

In 1991 Sega tried to make a mascot to compete with Nintendo"s invincible Mario, the result was the cocky and relaxed hedgehog known as Sonic, Sonic 1 was a sucess and for the first Nintendo actually lost big sales thanks to Sonic the Hedgehog, then a sequel came out and it WRECK EVERYTHING IN SIGHT!, its the best saled Sega genesis game EVER, and what do you with a good sequel?

P.D:To play the real Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles and use lock-on on both of them.
Sonic 3 and Knuckles review!

The story:
The story of this game begins with Sonic and Tails aproaching the newly discovered Angel Island, Sonic goes Super Sonic and goes in the island and while entering Knuckles the Echidna shoryukens Sonic and takes away the chaos emeralds, Sonic discovers that Knuckles was tricked by Dr.Eggman and thinks that they want to steal the Master Emerald.
As sonic or Tails your objective is to go through 13 zones(2 acts and a boss each) and defeat Dr.Eggman.
As Knuckles the story is a little diferent , after Sonic"s story Eggman sends an Eggrobo to take care of Knuckles as he rebuilds the Death Egg.

The Gameplay:
You can play with 3 diferent characters, Sonic plays like the older sonic games but now has a new technique called the insta-shield that you use if you double jump, it lets you kill more things that the spin attack couldnt and you have an elemental shield you can do diferent moves like a fire dash, a double jump or a bounce.
Tails has all the sonic abilities but instead of the insta-shield and the element attacks you can fly, its actually really fun and slightly broken, and Knuckles has a lower jump than sonic but instead of and insta-shield he can climb walls.
New to this game are the elemental shields that i mentioned earlier, The lighting, fire and bubble shield.
-The fire shield protects you from fire
-The electric shield protects you from electricity and is a magnet that attracts rings.
-The bubble shield protects you from drowning
also all the shields let you take an extra hit and remember this is Sonic so collect rings because if you get hit without any rings you die, there are 2 acts in each level and in the end of act 2 there"s a boss you have to defeat.
-After Knuckles shoryukens the heck outta Sonic you lose the chaos emeralds and have to get them back, to find a special stage you need to find giant rings scattered through each level,the special stages in this game consist of touching a number of blue spheres to complete a stage, if you touch a red sphere you lose and have to find a special ring again, these special stages are my favorite of any sonic game just because of the fun and the music, if you get all 7 chaos emeralds you can transform into Super Sonic or Super Knuckles, Tails... gets nothing.
If you manage to get all 7 emeralds before the level Mushroom Hill Zone you can sacrifice your super form in exchange for 7 more special stages and if you complete them...
Hyper Sonic is the physical form of overpowered, aside from getting all super sonic privileges like being invincible and only dieing from drowning, crushing or falling down a cliff, now sonic is inmortal to drowning and if you press the jump button twice on air you can kill every minor enemy in the screen!, (Like super sonic) you need 50 rings to activate it and if you ran out of rings you will go back to normal sonic.
Hyper Knuckles has the new ability of shaking the screen when you climb on the walls.
And Tails now has a super form, and this is truly overpowered... if you wanna know why, play the game and find out.
Also, to see the real ending of the game you need to get all emeralds, there are 13 zones in this game, im just going to say i like Hydrocity, Mushroom Hill, Flying Battery and Carvinal Night more.

The music:
This sound is just amazing, some of the songs just make you amazed of how good the songs are, special mention to Hydrocity act2, Sky Sanctuary(both acts), Launch Base act1 and Death Egg act1, they are AWESOME!
Fun fact: Hydrocity act2 is actually my ringtone, its that good.
Also, did you know that the music was made by Michael Jackson, but i"ll cover that in a fact of the day later on.

Looks nice, doesnt it?

The graphics:

This game looks absolutely amazing for the Sega Genesis, the backgrounds are colorful and nice, the sprites look detailed and i love the art style overall.

The replay Value:

Considering there are 3 characters that play nice and diferent, 13 diferent levels that never get tiring(Except for Sandopolis), a fun multiplayer that i barely mentioned(sorry), some nice music and overall fun, this game is really replayable and its hard to get bored from it.

The conclusion:

Sonic 3 and Knuckles does everything perfect as a sequel and it improves on what Sonic had done in the past 3 years, fun and memorable levels and music, the multiplayer is a nice distraction and with so much fun, this is a game everyone should try.

                             A 9 means the game excells at every single possible angle and it deserves your money.

See you later for a very special review...
