Out of the video vault archives in seemingly re-mastered visual glory comes the comical take on DJ culture that pretty much captures all its more desirable hedonistic turns along with all the lesser desirable pear shaped gory detail of the fall out. The pressures of DJ super stardom, living the rock'n'roll dream, and partying for a living on the sun soaked island of Ibiza all pretty much gets a little too on top for our protagonist superstar DJ Frankie Wilde. With a peaking coke addiction on...

Men in Black 3

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 In : movies 


I was going to try to be all cerebral about it but having recommended it to someone today it just seemed more appropriate to just go with what I actually said about it to them for the main part. Apparently this was for the kids, but who was it intended for if the Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises wasn't? In any case the humor seemed to smack of Eddy Izard despite Will Smith's take on it which isn't a bad thing. Right from the rolling start the pace of the movie is kept moving along nicely wi...

The Avengers

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 In : movies 


Turning words for movies feels a little bit beyond my scope. But the Avengers delivered a little more then I was expecting as far as big screen interpretations of comic book plots were concerned. Many other recent efforts have left me thinking "was that it?!" at the end. but this wasn't the case with this all star Marvel comic book super hero medley trying to fend off imminent planetary invasion by an alien army led by Thor's disillusioned demi-God sibling bent on the usual classic villain de...

Prototype 2

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 In : Open explore 


Heller, military man. Wife and kid deceased "at the hands of the virus". He's pissed off, he wants revenge. But all isn't quite as he first thought as the web of intrigue from the official line shrouded in lies unravels for Heller to discover that his rage might have been a little miss-directed.

I'm all prototyped out. Was this game bad in the sense of it being awful to play as a video game for pleasure? Nope, not at all.  It most certainly extended and satisfied any Prototype like cravings fo...

Batman Arkham City

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Saturday, August 18, 2012 In : Open explore 



It has all the elements to make me feel I was Batman whilst playing it. The graphics are enveloping and rich to really place you in that zone where it made me think this it how it should be. I am Batman! In my particular case it also should have been "in coming from" having played the C64 8-bit platform version of it many-many moons ago. Yep, no need to ask where all the wonderful toys are from as they're all pretty much yours and all at your utility belted disposal. 



However despite the fact ...

Max Payne 3

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 In : First person shooter 

 
Having played all the previous parts in the Max Payne series there was something a little unsettling about the fact that Rockstar games were actually turning out number 3 in the series. There was also much talk about it losing much of its cryptically dark and psycho-babble drenched appeal, especially with perceptions of Rockstar games foremost offerings of the grand theft auto series firmly associated with the game producer fixed in mind. 



In all honesty based on what I've played of it so far...

Saints Row the Third

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Friday, August 10, 2012 In : First person shooter 


 
When my bro first rattled off its name as something that I should check out whilst messaging on Skype it just sounded weird and generally something that I just couldn't be arsed playing despite knowing absolutely nothing about it (other then its title). However it turned out to be a game that fulfilled all the "if only it did this or could do this or had bits of this or did this like that did" category all rolled into one. It also did it in a way that kept me hooked. You just get to do all t...

Prototype

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Monday, August 6, 2012 In : Beat 'em ups 


 
Yeah I know this should have been done and dusted long ago with Prototype 2 already out in the wild, but I thought I'd reactivate it from the game archive and give it another whirl just for the sake of it since I've still not been able to get a hold of part 2 yet. Admittedly the visuals whilst maxed out weren't as great as I'd remembered them to be having been exposed to the kinds of pixelated feed back from the likes of Dead Space 2, Skyrim V,  and Saint Row the Third (just after starting p...

Resident Evil - Operation Racoon City

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Friday, June 29, 2012 In : First person shooter 



I've not visited the Resident Evil series in a while but since my last stint (way,-way back when some time ago) it's certainly changed in terms of pace and gameplay. They've done away with the relatively slow paced single player protagonist format opting for more of a Steam like approach of the quick fix arcade like carnage of Left 4 Dead squad team like antics. Even in one player mode the control of the other 3 characters is done for you allowing you to have a crack team accompnaying you dur...

Street fighter X Tekken (… as in Street fighter "cross" Tekken and not the letter X)

Posted by Eksovichea Tito Hak on Monday, June 11, 2012 In : Beat 'em ups 



As expected, fast paced beat 'em up arcade action, but on the PC platform. All those from the veteran skool of Tekken finger twitching controllerism martial arts might want to take a less cerebral line of approach for this as much of the slightly more measured strategic chess like elements have been lost due to the setting within the game play dynamic of the Street fighter genre. So there's no side stepping and side step counter attack antics to be had here either. Just be prepared for an all...
