Game News: Gears of War 3

Friday, July 15, 2011


It's been quite a while since I made a new post, so here it is! Gears of War 3 is soon to be released ( 20 september 2011)

Known Multiplayer functions:
  • Online Versus Multiplayer
  • Online Co-Op Multiplayer

Just like Gears of War 2, it will only be released on the Xbox 360, the game uses the same engine as Gears of War 2, which will make the Gameplay feel more natural. There will also be a new team member, a female actually. Her name is Anya, and the player will be able to control her. Since there is not much known about the game, I will keep it short. Stay tuned, because I'm going to write a lot more about this game!

Game Review: Centipede

Monday, July 4, 2011

It's been a while, but I decided to review another classic!

Reason:
I got this game when I was about 8, I just couldn't complete it alone. So I always invited a friend over to play it with me, but we still couldn't beat the game. There would always be this one level that we couldn't beat, so I decided to grab my old CD, and install it again. I'm quite good at the game now, so I think it's time for a little review!

Gameplay:
You are a little guy named Wally, your village is under the attack by centipedes! Your goal is to destroy all of them, and restore peace. However, it's a really hard task because you'll have to deal with all kind of other enemies too! Your main enemies are obviously the centipedes, each time you enter a level, centipedes will spawn. It's your goal to make sure the centipedes do not destroy the village, the game can be played in Top-down mode, or a behind the Shoulder like style. Here are screenshots of both perspectives:

Behind the Shoulder: 

Top-down:
Screenshots are from Gamespot.com, I do not own them.

Graphics:
Hmm, this is a hard one. The game got released on different platforms, but I'm going to talk about the PC graphics. The PC Graphics are quite nice for it's time, a very low amount of polygons has been used for the models, but that makes a lot of sense since the PC version got released in 1999. Conclusion: Nice graphics for it's time.

Sound:
The sounds are bad, period. Even for it's time. However this should not ruin the fun! 

Scores:
Gameplay: 7/10
Graphics: 6/10
Sound: 4/10
Total: 5.7
