dcGreat to see a company support and update post sale games for free. Sega announced that it will start updating Steam ports soon with enhancements such as achievements and more. Great news as most of the old school Dreamcast ports can use HD update to bring them up to date. Now I am hoping for more re releases as Sega Dreamcast old school fan. Ports of Saturn would be nice as well but Im not crossing my fingers as Saturn ports tend to be hard to reprogram as far as Sega claims.

Lets see how things develops.

tcWhile reading the latest GamesMaster magazine, I came upon this open world racing game to be out around November this year. I love racing games but hate open world. To me; it feels limited on what can and cannot be done as the whole game is set in one setting. Add to that the fact that there were no good open world racing games since I don’t know, the invention of open world with a small exception to forza horizon which I’m yet to play but are taking my brother’s word for it.

Yet after reading this and checking IGN I feel that this is the game that will change my mind and become “my type of game” which I will be playing regularly. The graphics look good and so as the gameplay but more information is needed to confirm my expectations. I just hope it doesn’t become pay to win type of game where everything is in real life money.

I will probably be picking the PC version as I’m playing to upgrade my machine to support the next Gen games. Lets see how things play out.

Starting this post with a fact that I am the biggest Resident Evil fan there is. I own most of the Resident Evil games on multi platforms and still hunt the remaining ones on eBay and local sellers. With that out of the way, lets get into my first impression after playing Resident Evil 6 on Xbox 360.

re6Growing up with Resident Evil 1 and on made me love the franchise more and more until part 4 and 5. It is when the formula totally changed and the game became something else with the Resident Evil name. I started Resident Evil 6 playing as Chris; the old school Resident Evil 1 hero who started taking steroids from RE5 and onward.

The controls felt broken and un resident evil like although I got used to them in 30 minutes. The new inventory system is confusing and time consuming. Why couldn’t they keep the RE 5 inventory system is beyond me.

The first chapter was not that great to begin with as it seemed very repetitive and boring. As I finished it and moved on to the second, things started to change for the better. I am now more familiarized with the system and the enlivenment but the thing is, I cant but feel that I am playing a 3rd person Call of duty game. The squad command is not helping either. Resident Evil was always about 1 guy getting into trouble in a no man zone. Running around a group of solders is not Resident Evil.

Never the less, I am enjoy so far and my brother who has completed the game is saying that things will get better. Hoping for the best. Out.

It is no secret that I was and still am Sega Saturn and old school SEGA fan. It is this issue that I first picked up in the super market years ago along with it’s demo.

1I remember rushing to my Black Saturn and testing the demo using the official region free card. Boy was I amazed. I remember playing world wide soccer over a 100 times and trying to glitch my way out of the map in steep slope sliders. The days gaming was actually fun and inventing.

Fast forward to today and I managed to score some mags of my past and a couple of new ones. The reason I stopped going further is cause I don’t wanna be broke from the start as I have bills to pay and people to take care of. Never the less, these amazing gems will surly bring back the nostalgic feeling and joy to my heart.

Reading about Dreamcast for the first time and seeing Sonic Adventure, I got super excited and little sad cause I knew that we would not be able to afford this any time soon.

Bought it from the mall’s book store. The CD was missing though.

I cant say the deal was cheap but its well worth it.

You heard it right. Sony as a company forgot to renew one of its core websites domain resulting in most of the games to go offline as well as a number of support forums. Hold on and let that sink in. So one of the biggest companies simply forgot to renew a website contract critical to online gaming and forums?

After reading the news, all I picture is this:

Yet people still defend Sony and its dying brand of gaming that did nothing for gaming since the PS2 and keep on bashing the Xbox. Amazing news. I had hoped that this would have been a trolling article or an April’s fool news but not, its as real as Sony gets.

We all have our daily visited website and I am no different. Ofcourse the priority changed over the years so here are my daily visited websites these days:

1

I only visit the UFC and WWE section as I’m both a WWE and MMA fan. The strange thing is; I mostly read the comments rather than the blog post itself.

2

The hardcore news network. News and updates that are intended for a serious gamer along with a few controversial things that are not covered anywhere.

3

Long before YouTube, there was GameFAQs. I remember browsing it for the first time as I was playing Sonic Adventure on Dreamcast. Guides and FAQs that cannot be found elsewhere, even paid. Years later and I became a writer. Feel free to vist my page with all my work: http://www.gamefaqs.com/users/Adam3k3/contributions/faqs

Where else could I shop for old school gems? 90% of my shopping goes here.

Visiting the forums although not as active as I once was as I’m now more into blogging and writing.

Well, the above are my daily visited sites. I do visit more but I feel they are not as frequent as the ones I mentioned.
