I decided that since we are a different type of “gaming” related website that personal reviews might not be for all of us.  I did however, want to make sure I didn’t fail on my intentions to provide a pseudo review of F.E.A.R. 2.  Here goes…

F.E.A.R. 2 would be much easier if broken into bullets for your quick reading pleasure…

I apologize for the size of the picture but I wanted everybody to see what has just appeared in my gamerscore profile for Fallout 3.  Wonder what that means?

I couldn’t really tell you why I wanted to originally pick up this game.  The only time I ever played the original Dawn of War was back when it first released and they had a demo.  Furthermore, I was so flabbergasted by the multiplayer beta they had up on Steam.  The thing didn’t even have a proper tutorial!  However, I found myself inexplicably drawn to Dawn of War II and could not resist it’s primal pull.  I’ve always kind of had a dirty admiration and longing to play me some real time strategy games, and even have that same longing to play the actual tabletop version of Warhammer.  My issue is that I could never really get into base building for digital RTS’ and I didn’t have the time and patience to build and paint an army for the tabletop game.

Enter the delicious soup that is Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 2.  This game is part RTS, part tactical RPG, part Diablo, and completely dope.

The War to end all Endwars

If you plan on buying this you can send your money to me instead, Ill gladly take it

If you plan on buying this you can send your money to me instead, I'll gladly take it

So in the news… Tom Clancy’s Endwar came out for the PC today.  Boasting incredible graphics, sound, gameplay.  Not to mention you can use your voice to control your units.  This is definitely shaping up to be one of 2009’s best…

In other news, no one cares about Tom Clancy’s Endwar

PNG Daily: 2/3/09

According to Joystiq, Ubisoft will be releasing the Prince of Persia DLC entitled “Epilogue” for consoles on 2/26/09.  PC users are out of luck  as they are citing “business reasons” as to why you’re not getting it.  One could theorize that the obvious reason is that they can’t figure out how to make you pay for it like Xbox and Playstation users.   I have few issues with this if it is the case.  

Services exist that Ubisoft could have used if they really wanted to charge for extra content on PC.  EA did it with their micro expansion packs for Battlefield 2 through their own service and Fallout 3 has done it recently through Game for Windows Live.  The questions is, why can’t a large developer/publisher like Ubisoft get it right for PC gamers?  Why not use Steam since your game is already on there?

I always scoffed whenever I read a story of some doomsayer predicting the fall of PC gaming or it already being dead, but when a big publisher gimps a games expansion capability based on whether or not they can charge for it, I can see DLC making a huge impact on whether people will buy the PC or console version of a game.

Second Impressions: F.E.A.R 2 Demo

Don't be fooled, she'll eat you're heart like it's a piece of birthday cake.

There is so much I want to say about the Fear 2 Demo, so much in fact, that I will hold off on the long and undoubtedly lengthy review of what I am expecting to be one of the best games of 2009.

I know that seems like a big claim considering we are no more than a month into the new year, but when you show off a taste of something that grabs a player by the shirt and says “play the hell out of me until this game comes out in 2 weeks” That’s the kind of game that I want to play.

First Impressions: F.E.A.R. 2 Demo

boxartfear2

I sat down with both the PC and Xbox 360 version of the demo.  I had always been interested in F.E.A.R since the original but could never actually play it due to my PC at the time not being able to man up and play the game at a respectable framerate.  So here I am over 3 years after the original came out being drawn into playing the sequel and wondering… Will I get what this game is about?
