Supreme Commander 2 Xbox Demo Impressions

I would never have gained any type of interest in playing any RTS game if wasn’t for Halo Wars, which successfully transitioned RTS games to consoles. Even though I did put over hundreds of hours into the multiplayer and successfully gained the General rank; I was looking for something that wasn’t so simple and restricting with the base building. Supreme Commander 2 seemed that it would provide more freedom, and also have more than just 3 units to build an army with. Supreme Commander lets you build what you want where you want; not on a predetermine piece of land that Halo Wars was structured around.

Now Playing: Eternal Sonata

I managed to find a copy of Eternal Sonata for 10 bucks on Amazon -- so I concluded that it even if I hated it's turned based style -- It wouldn't of matter if I tossed it to the side.

Lagging Behind: Dead Space

"Lagging Behind" is going to be my final thoughts on a game that I haven't got around to playing. For the game to qualify for this segment, It has to have been available to the public for at least 6 months.

When I first saw Dead Space in action around the time of it's release, it left the impression that it was a trying to do something different with it's HUDless approach. Adding no HUD to the tight dark environments, it was the perfect stage for a survival horror game. But the problem with Dead Space is that a monster can only pop out of a corner so many times before it loses it novelty. But what doesn't lose it's novelty is the dismemberment of the creepy crawlies, then picking up it's leg and shooting it back at it's face.

Blur Beta Impressions

Blur is a game that I have been following for while now, not only because it's described as Mario Kart with real cars, it's because I'm looking for a racer that will keep my attention. After starting my first race I was a little disappointed with the way the cars handled. Cars felt like they weren't responding enough to my sharp movements, and turning feels like it could be better. If it controlled similarly to Burnout Paradise where you could maneuver your car precisely, then I would praise Blur for bringing Mario Kart outside of Nintendo.
