God of War Chains of Olympus Demo (Updated with Impressions)

November 8, 2007

Update (12/2):  So, I finally got a PSP a couple of day ago and as promised I played the God of War demo and I’ll tell you what I thought of it. I know it took me a really long time and most of you probably already played it or don’t care anymore so I apologize, but I couldn’t get the PSP any sooner. When I first booted up the game the first thing I noticed were the graphics. The graphics for this game are really good for a PSP game, of course it doesn’t look as good as the PS2 God of War games, but it is pretty great for a portable game. The next thing I noticed were the controls, which are basically the same as the PS2 versions, but with the absence of a right analog stick rolls are now done by holding L and R and using the left analog stick. once you get used to that, I thought the controls were done really well. Now, for the most important part, the gameplay, it plays exactly how you would expect a God of War game to play, you almost forget you are not playing one of the PS2 games because the gameplay is still everything you would expect it to be. You get to face two bosses in the demo neither of which is very hard and the lack of any difficulty options in the demo is my biggest complaint. So, overall judging by the demo anyone who enjoyed God of War will probably enjoy this too. I never thought that God of War was the best action game out there and this demo doesn’t change that, but it is a solid game and I would reccomend it to fans of the series based on what I played so far. We’ll see how the full game shapes up when it’s released.

(11/8):Yesterday, I recieved a package in the mail with a demo for the new God of War game for PSP, but since I don’t have a PSP yet I can’t play it and therefore I can’t tell you how the game is. What I can do however, is post some pictures of the package that the demo came in because I thought it was really cool. It came with the demo, a God of War phone strap, and a coupon for $15 off of a PSP at Best Buy which I will probably be using to get a PSP sometime before the end of this month at which point I can write a review of the demo, but for now here are the pictures.

beatmania IIDX 15 DJ Troopers Official Site

October 18, 2007

As the title of the post says, the official site for IIDX 15 is up, but as of right now there is nothing on the site except for a picture that says that the game will be released in 2007. The picture is pretty cool though so you should check out the site just for that, so you can kind of see the theme of IIDX 15.

After months of rumors of the Sega mascot being in the new Smash Bros. it has finally been confirmed by Nintendo that Sonic the Hedgehog will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

The game will be realeased on January 24, 2008 in Japan and February 10, 2008 in the U.S. You can head over to the Smash Bros. Dojo to find out more about Sonic and his moves… and here’s the link…

GuitarFreaks & DrumMania V4 Location Test Pictures

October 1, 2007

I went out to to the GFDM V4 Location Test on Sunday and I had a great time, I even got to have a conversation with one of the Konami reps which was pretty cool. I took a bunch of pictures, but only some of them came out even half way decent with my crappy cell phone camera… I’m still saving up for a digital camera so I apologize to you guys once again and hopefully I’ll have better pictures for you in the near future. Here’s the link to check out the pictures…

http://flickr.com/photos/10972441@N02/sets/72157602226370026/

If you haven’t gone to the location test yet,  you should try to check it out to support Konami and make sure GFDM is brought to the U.S.. The test will last about three weeks according to the Konami rep I talked to so try to make it out to Naperville before that. I assure you that you won’t regret it.

GuitarFreaks/DrumMania V4 U.S. Location Test

September 22, 2007

I was waiting all summer for them to announce the U.S location test for V4 and I almost lost hope, but thankfully it has finally been announced and it will begin on September 30 at the Brunswick Zone in Naperville, IL. I’m probably going to be there on the first day of testing and I am also going to try to make it out there a couple more times, so if anyone else is going leave a comment and let me know. I’ll try to post some pictures and info when I go for the people who can’t make it to the location test. I’m so excited that I finally get to put my e-AMUSEMENT PASS to use again! I hope to see you guys there!
