It’s the end of the year people. All the big titles that were gonna be released for 09′ have come out. It’s that awesome time of year where hopefully we get some extra time to spend with our family and friends, but also enjoy some quality gaming time.
Man, it’s been a heck of a year for gaming. For me personally as well, I mean, I got to feel the sting of a PS3 and an Xbox360 dying on me, which really sucks cuz I show so much care for my systems. But I kept on truckin and was able to play most of the awesome stuff I wanted to this year. There’s still a bunch of titles that I haven’t played or barely spent time with, though I’d like to. This list is the stuff I got to play through or spent enough time with to know they’re my favorites this year. You can say it’s in order, the best being no. 1 of course. All these are great and deserve some kind of attention when you guys get the chance.
-Probably the best cinematic adventure I’ve ever played, so many memorable moments.
-A comic book super hero game that kept me engrossed from beginning to end. I even wanna play it again!
-Incredibly exciting, like being in an awesome summer action blockbuster, without the corny stuff in between!
-Part one was an awesome skeleton to a great title to come. They actually built an interesting game and world that I love getting lost in.
-It’s Halo, man we love Halo around here. The fun and shooting strategy this invokes just doesn’t get old.
-A 15$ downloadable game that kept me sucked in and having fun a lot longer than a lot of 60$ games.
-Intense….makes me feel like I’m in a real war.
-It’s side scrolling Mario! ’nuff said!
-It’s the same awesome God of War games from the PS2 cleaned up for HiDef. The PS2 versions were like old DVD picture quality, this is remastered Blu-Ray baby!
-The classic 3D platforming series still holds it’s own….and looks damn good doing it.
As I sit here this morning, coffee in hand and attemping to find something of personal value to this blog I find N-O-T-H-I-N-G. More anime fandom posts from Kotaku? Yelch. Nope! Giant Bomb? Yeah, you’re great we cant cop anything else from you. 1up, you’re just a copy of Kotaku minus the anime fanboism. We used to be friends but not anymore. Heck I’m not even sure if rich and myself even listen to your podcast. Sorry Garnet Lee.
So what’s going on? It’s the “holiday season, yeah you know that season. The one that started the day after “Christmas”. I can say that I spent my weekend smoking some meat in the back yard (picture proof not posted) and made my own BBQ spice recipe. It turned out great. While waiting around I managed to sneak in some Killzone 2 and Beatles Rock Band. Killzone was a tad bit tricker as I got stuck on the ATAC. The hint was to shoot some wing things off (clearly I listened) I did. But not the right things/wings but not bing.com. After about 30 attempt this thing was just flat out destroying me everytime. I’d waste all my bullets and missles, it got so bad I’m shooting at it with the REVOLVER. ARGH. >.<
At that point I told myself, what the hell am I doing. Machine off. There’s no way I’ll have to stop the game on a MEDIUM setting. Am I really that out of practice on shooters? Yeah, I am. It’s ok but still. It’s like riding a bike right? So what do I do?
And I come up with this truly awful yet all too common video on youtube:
Anyways yeah. That’s really stinking easy. Shoot the blue lazors, hit with missle’s, and get trophy for beating it in under 1 minute 30. Check. Check. Check. So was this better than a anime cosplay jrpgINSANELOVE post on Kotaku? Yeah. Why do I even go there anymore?
In the slowest news week ever we attempt to shine nothing into something! We talk about killzone 2, splosion boy, lost at comic con, rock band dev kit for musicians, madden 10 demo on xbox360, and mothership zeta. Join us for the 21st Podcast!

Killzone 2, Wario Shake it, horror movies, and lost is back on the agenda. Boom. Here is 6th Podcast!the
Wut up people’s, the less-than-professional half of the mastercontrolcast here(gotta give the Chud man mad propz for gettin us goin!). I was just checkin the post he made about Bioshock 2….and, umm, yeah….I’m pretty wary myself too. Bioshock was like, my favorite game of 2007, in year where alot of hotness dropped(Halo3 and Portal, I’m lookin at U sons!), they have a lot to live up. I mean if we got some of the same peeps on the development team on board, maybe something special can happen again….but when 2K games are talkin multi sequels, I’m afraid they wanna start milkin before they even get to the farm!
So JC is spot on with the music analogy, but I’m a different beast of a hip-hop fan than he is, I takes my ish more seriously than most….don’t worry holmes, I don’t know too many heads who think Biggie’s 2nd is better than the 1st. But I gotta do a 180 and seriously disagree on the Nas comment…Illmatic, classic of course…It Was Written, pretty dang solid too…I Am, that’s where he started to drop off, it was so-so…Nastradamus, weeeeeaaaak….but he must’ve been hit with the reality stick after that, cuz Stillmatic was once again another classic, and everything after that has been extremely tight, I’d say an 8 or better(especially Hip Hop Is Dead)….but that’s just me, Chud man knows I’m way passionate about my hip-hop….I still die a little inside when I see what mainstream rap has become…oh well life goes on…..and cats on the underground tip are still makin it happen.
As I predicted last week, my moment of weakness came while at Target tonight, I picked up Killzone 2 and cannot wait sink my choppers into that bad boy….gotta get some stuff done around the crib this weekend, but I should be able to talk to it a bit for the show next week….later peoples!
