| I Wanna be the Guy : Gaiden>>>>>
The hardest & most frustrating game ever
29 June 2012
I dont usually play PC downloadables , but when I do , I find most of them quite interesting , but not without a lack of challenge.Wishing these games to be a bit more challenging , however ,actually turned out to be injurious to not only your mind , but also your health.......
You got what you want , now zip it & deal with it. Play I Wanna Be The Guy : Gaiden.(PS: try not to rage !!!)(Released on 16 July 2012)
Well I know I have played the game & I sweared about as many times I died . And wanna know how many times I died in the 1rst level ? exactly 124 times >:<.
Aproach with caution & take the oath that you really want to play this game , because once you did , your life will never be the same.I Wanna be the Guy : Gaiden abseloutely hates you & wants to murder you right after every obstacle. It will defy the laws & logic of the world to pop somehing out from nowhere & kill you.
After every obstacle you cross ,there is another one hiding in the barrels , killing you & making you do it all over again. It is abseloutely merciless.
This one is a 2D platformer about kid who wants to be the guy. Its one of those games which makes you to play to select your level. Well , thats okay , it has been there for years. But in this particular level select screen , you die at least 5 times. Yes , at the very first playable moment.
The main frustration comes in during the levels. As soon as you set foot on land , you are crushed to death by a falling girder , then after you cross that , you are eaten by a jumping piranha , which is almost impossible to dodge. When youre done with that , there is another falling girder crushing you to death.
There are uncountable such obstacles & each time you think you can finally move on to the next platform , voila , another falling girder or a flying fish or a 10 foot tall shooter turns up , kills you & makes you play the whole section all over again. This one time when I landed on a platform after finally beating an impossibly hard stretch of the game , the entire platform fell of of itself & I had to play from the last checkpoint.... AGAIN!!!!!
Dont be surprised if you cant even cross the first screen or platform , for that is so incredibly tough in itself.Every step that you take can kill you & you are totally unaware of any such thing.
Its not that the sections aldready crossed are easier after playing it either , so getting to the same point after dying is pretty hard too.
Your best friend during the game is the reset button & the most often seen screen is the "game Over" one.
Not only that but the game occationally taunts you & REMINDS you of how terrible you are & how you suck & how you can never be the guy.
NO!!!! I dont wanna be the guy , I wanna stay the way I am. If it takes this much of pain to be a guy , then I dont wanna. It aint worth ist anyways....
Play this game if you want to , but promise yourself that you will not swear , not even once.Check out its gameplay(click on the link) before you finally decide to put yourself in immeasurable pain.
| 90 Minutes of The Amazing Spiderman >>>
90 Minutes of The Amazing Spiderman Hands on for the XBox 360 coming up soon .............
I have played 90 Minutes of the amazing spiderman , the tie in for the movie The amazing spiderman. Lets see how it turns out.
The Amazing Spiderman starts out with a story going backwards in perspective with an "incident". It tells you how Peter & Gwen sneak into Oscorp for an unexplained reason . The first cutscene is awkward with some pretty stiff animation & some big holes between dialogues but the voice acting is pretty solid. The developers have conformed that the cast from the movie will NOT be featured in the game , but despite of this , the voice acting is well realised. These holes between dialogues are fixed as you progress throughout the game.
Finally the cutscenes end where a cross species breaks out of his glass & he is highly contageous. He rips a cut into Gwens shoulder , which means that she is infected too !!!!
This is where spidey has to step in...The game first shows you all the basics before showing you what the game can really do. The combat is fun & flashy , though it is hampered by some scratchy combat animations. The attacks are appealing though , this is a fresh & new set of attacks here which include acrobatic flip kicks , jumping punches etc. There is also a reversal system... When the spiderscense goes off between combat , this means that one of the goons is going to attack you. This is when a button prompt pops in , by which if pressed , spidey kicks out of the way & onto another foe.This works quite well along with looking stylish. After you are done with the ragging , you can flip a coke dispenser or a dumpster right onto them.
Freeroaming is back in this game & this time , unlike the past few free roaming endeavours of spidey , he is presented with a lively New York city full of citizens cheers , police sirens , helicopters floating above & much more noises from below , as opposed to the dead & dull New Yorks of the past. Swinging around this city is exiting as buildings whoosh by in a blur & you can literally hear the wind blowing on your face. This really does look like the beautiful Manhattan city. The camera hangs closer behind spideys back this time which makes you feel more like a superhero. The higher you go , the more close you are to being Spiderman.
Also , the developers have included random crimes, which is Located on the map as you choose to stop them , these are good to test you upgrades & just have some fun. This is unlike in the Web of Shadows in which no one even ever speaks during a mugging. Over here as well , there are loads of voices of screaming & jeering etc.
There are also plenty of upgrades , presented on Peters Smartphone , which was a nice & believable way to present something . (I remember in Golden Eye 007 way back in the N64 days , Bonds menu was in his watch...)
Overall , the first impression was great , with some good presentation options , combat moves & mechanics. The City is huge & lively added to the fact that swinging in this game is a hoot The Amazing Spiderman may be what Spidey fans wanted............
