Mellow Gaming: WWE 2K14

WWE2K14-2

One of the few games I’ve bothered to write a review for on this here blog was WWE ’13. Since then THQ has gone bust, 2K Games have picked up the rights to the WWE game series and here it is. I’m not sure if I’ll actually write a review for this due to the amount of time I spend writing stuff for Film Dump and whatnot but, short review, WWE 2K14 is a pretty damn solid game. Still has a few issues but they’re nowhere near the level of glaring issues the last dozen WWE games have had. All told it’s probably the best of this generation. Anyway, Paul and I decided to play some of Universe mode and we recorded it all, along with our boring ass voices for you to “enjoy”. Click the link for the videos which will be added as I get them released.

How many Vince McMahons does it take to screw in a lightbulb? None. The lightbulb screwed itself.


You’re Not The One, But You’re The Xbox One.

Xbox-One-1

I don’t tend to do editorials here, or on The Film Dump for that matter. I could easily. I tend to be prone to the occasional rant about stuff that’s bothering me in the film and games industries, but usually I hold back to let other, more eloquent/humorous people handle that sort of thing. Although I did write quite a rant about that hack Brett Ratner once. It was fun. This week, though, I feel I have been pushed to writing another rant type thing. This isn’t just about the Xbox One. This is about, as I see it, the looming death of the console market and the traditional aspects of gaming. Click the link for my full mass of opinions and semi-informed judgements!

No, I didn’t have a better title to use.


These Streets Be Full Of Rage… 3

Streets-of-Rage-3

Finally got around to making new Mellow Gaming videos. One day I’ll make a new Retro-Perspective. Anyway, this time Myself and Paul decided to play some Streets of Rage 3… after I had to purchase the Streets of Rage collection from Xbox live because Streets of Rage 2 would only start up as a trial. Despite me having achievements for it. And having redownloaded it. And being online. Yay for online DRM requirements eh? Anyway, click the link below to watch the various parts as I get around to uploading them!

My rage has never been so unbridled.


Games Review No.3: Borderlands 2

Available on: Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Version reviewed: Xbox 360

Well I have certainly let this blog flounder a little haven’t I? It’s been over a month since my last post. In my defence I did go and set myself the ridiculous task of reviewing each and every Eon produced James Bond film over on The Film Dump. During the time I spent watching and reviewing those films I did manage to find the time to finish one other game, well actually two but I’ll get to the second game at a later date. The one I’m tackling tonight is Borderlands 2. Click the link for my review!

Roses are red, violets are blue, wub wub wub, Borderlands 2


Games Review No.2: Transformers – Fall Of Cybertron

Available on: Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Version reviewed: Xbox 360

Said new posts on this blog would be a little slow to come along. This is because games are a different kind of beast to the films I review over on The Film Dump. Plus I rarely finish any game I play. So I guess it goes to show that Transformers: Fall Of Cybertron might actually be quite good seeing as I actually have bothered to finish the thing. I suppose I should tell you what is actually good about it though. Click the link yo!

Does this game light our darkest hour? No of course not. it’s a game. Not Jesus or something.


So I Thought I’d Play A Little Ikaruga Tonight

Ikaruga was a game me and my mate Paul used to dominate on the Gamecube. Well when I say dominate I mean we could play it to a standard where we didn’t feel like we were awful at it. Obviously when it was released on the Xbox Live Arcade I had to download it. Tonight I thought I’d give it a try for the first time in years. It seems that, much like Susan Sarandon, my skill has faded with time. Click the link to see a quite short video…

This game sure was polarising!!! HO HO HO!!!
