The Amazing Spider-Man (Xbox 360) 08/06/2013

Spidey Senses Tingling!

The Amazing Spider-Man (Xbox 360) THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN The Amazing Spider-Man is an action/adventure game set in a third-person open world. The game was developed by Beenox and published by Activision and is available for the PC, PS3, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, Wii, Xbox 360 and many more. I have never really been a massive fan of the Spider-Man games but I have to say this game certainly altered my feeling on them because its actually quite good and offers a wide range of gameplay features. One of the only flaws is the fact that the only playable mode is single player. There isn't any sort of multiplayer which is a real shame because that would of been fun. The game was directed by Gerard Lehiany and also written by Seamus Kevin Fahey and to be honest they've done a fantastic job. STORY The game is set several months after the events of the movie. Peter Parker and his girlfriend Gwen have sneaked into a restricted part of the Oscorp center. Gwen reveals that she thinks they might be carrying on with where Curt Connors left off with his experiment on the cross species. Gwen and Peter are caught by Alistair Smythe who does reveal that some special scientists are continuing with Curt Connors experiments. Alistair escorts them but suddenly something goes wrong and the cross species start to attack as they notice something with Peter. Peter himself is a cross species after the incidents of the spider bite. Gwen and the scientists are attacked and must stay behind to do what they can. Peter goes in search of ...

Halo 4 (Xbox 360) 05/06/2013

The Return Of The Chief!

Halo 4 (Xbox 360) HALO 4 Halo 4 is a first person shooter game developed by 343 Industries and published by Microsoft. The game is an exclusive to the Xbox 360. The story to Halo 4 starts four years after the events of Halo 3. Halo has always been one of my favourite games for many reasons and while every one enjoys Call Of Duty (probably more) I myself love the Halo franchise and think it offers a lot more. This is the first Halo 343 Industries have created because the previous creators were Bungie who are now working on another project. Halo 4 is one of the best, most action packed and thrilling shooter games out there so far. Halo 4 also takes place in a futuristic science fiction setting in the year 2557. Also this game sees the return of the Master Chief! STORY Master Chief is woken up from cryonic sleep by his friend Cortana who helped back in Halo 3. Just before she awakens him, rogue covenant forces board the vessel that you are on. As Master Chief and Cortana explore the vessel and taking down any enemy covenant forces, Cortana malfunctions. She reveals that she is basically dying and past the usual operating period of an AI. She also reveals that she is becoming rampant and out of control, slowly thinking herself to death because of it. Now as Master Chief your mission is to get Cortana back to Earth where her creator is and try and get help from her. Master Chief picks up muffled transmissions from a human ship called Infinity. After warning Infinity away from the vessel they ...

Resident Evil Revelations (Xbox 360) 03/06/2013

All Aboard The Queen Zenobia!

Resident Evil Revelations (Xbox 360) RESIDENT EVIL REVELATIONS Resident Evil has always been a game that I have always loved from the very first one too this one. Resident Evil Revelations is a survival horror video game. The game was published and developed by Capcom and is available PS3, 3DS, PC, Wii U as well as the Xbox 360. Resident Evil Revelations also brings back the survival horror aspect of the game and its not an all out action game now. Finally its back like the good old days of Resident Evil 2 with puzzles as well. This Resident Evil game takes place on The Queen Zenobia which is a cruise ship and a fantastic setting for this type of game. I think its one of the best places a Resident Evil game has taken place. Also this game is set after Resident Evil 4 but before Resident Evil 5. STORY As stated the game takes place aboard the Queen Zenobia. The two main character you are in this game are Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield. Jill and Parker (her teammate) are sent to the Queen Zenobia in search of Chris and his partner Jessica. The story does feature a few flashbacks which you get to play also. Both Chris and Jessica have reportedly gone missing on the Queen Zenobia and their boss has sent out Jill and Parker to find them. During their search they find many B.O.W.s on the ship infected with the T-Abyss virus. They finally enter a room where they think Chris is, only for it to turn out not to be him. Now they must race against time fighting off the B.O.W.s whilst looking for Chris and Jessica. ...

Dead Island Riptide (Xbox 360) 30/05/2013

Zombie Slasher At Its Best!!

Dead Island Riptide (Xbox 360) DEAD ISLAND RIPTIDE Dead Island Riptide is the sequel to the very impressive but somewhat glitchy game known as just Dead Island. Set on a new island and full with a whole new bunch of weapons, enemies and more, Dead Island Riptide definitely impresses. Dead Island Riptide was developed by Techland and published by Deep Silver. The game is available for PC, PS3 and of course the Xbox 360. Riptide is a survival horror game with role playing elements, first person elements and also an adventure game. Also the game features all four characters from the previous Dead Island game but it also features a brand new playable character. Each character has their own skills and abilities to suit how you want to play the game.

The group along with newest member John Morgan, meet ...

Alberto Balsam Ultra Strong Hair Gel 28/05/2013

Ultra Strong Start To An Ultra Strong Day!

Alberto Balsam Ultra Strong Hair Gel ALBERTO BALSAM ULTRA STRONG HAIR GEL Alberto Balsam Ultra Strong Hair Gel is one of the best and cheapest. The gel gives you a long lasting hold from the start of the day to the very end and also gives you the maximum control of your hair. Its strong, easy to use and looks great when you style your hair with it. Alberto Balsam offers a lot of products from their own range at great prices such as shampoos, conditioners, different styling wax, different ranges of gel and some other bits. They offer a wide variety of items. HOW LONG DOES IT HOLD/LAST FOR? Right so if I put this on at around 8am and style it, the style usually holds all day and all night its really that good and strong. the gel does tend to run out earlier and later in the day it looks like my hair is just stuck up without any gel. I really don't mind this because the normal gel I get usually get doesn't hold my hair up all day. The whole tube of gel usually lasts me for around a whole month which I think is fantastic for its price. Overall its a great gel for a long lasting hold and lasts me a whole month, not forgetting its price and the amount you need to apply. HOW TO USE The gel is very easy to use and the it gives clear instructions on the tube. Basically apply to damp or dry hair, but I do recommend dry hair. Work gel through the hair and allow to dry naturally or style as usual. I tend to style as soon as its applied and by the time its dried (which is in seconds) you're all set to go out or do ...

FIFA 13 (Xbox 360) 26/05/2013

EA Sports Its In The Game!

FIFA 13 (Xbox 360) FIFA 13 As we all know the FIFA games come once a year and here comes FIFA 13. The only problem I have, is there enough difference from the previous game? I for one believe there is and this FIFA has the biggest change in a few years. Not only does it have new bits in the game but it also features a few new players on the cover and yes that means no Wayne Rooney. FIFA 13 for those that don't know is a football based game and was developed and published by EA Sports. The game is available on many platforms including PC, PS2, PS3, PS Vita, PSP, Wii U, Wii, 3DS, iOS and of course the Xbox 360. Some of the new features in FIFA 13 included the First Touch Control, a whole new bunch of celebrations and a EASFC Catalogue (explained below). There are a few different versions of the game available to buy which include the Ultimate Edition which gives you 24 free gold packs for Ultimate Team mode. There is also the Bonus Edition and Normal Edition versions of the game. Bonus Edition also comes with free packs and a few other bits but the Normal Edition just comes complete with the game. FIFA 13 offers new teams and new stadiums too but still not enough for fans of other teams that haven't made the cut. FIFA 13 also supports Kinect for the Xbox 360 but it is NOT required. GAMEPLAY & GAME MODES The gameplay to FIFA 13 is quite different to FIFA 12. FIFA 12 was a little too quick and a little unrealistic at times but FIFA 13 is more realistic in terms of gameplay but not so realistic ...

Xbox Live Arcade The Walking Dead Episode 1 (Xbox 360) 24/05/2013

Episode 1 Of The Walking Dead!

Xbox Live Arcade The Walking Dead Episode 1 (Xbox 360) The Walking Dead Episode One This might be a bit of a shock to some people but yes this is the video game of The Walking Dead which is known as a book and most notable a TV show. This is the first in a five part episodic video game based on Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead comic book series and is available on a host of systems which include Microsoft Windows, PlayStation Network (PS3), Xbox Live Arcade (Xbox 360), iOS and Mac OS X. Also this is a game published by Telltale. The game isn't like any other zombie game because it does involve more characterization and emotion than it has action gameplay. Its not entirely short of action because you will come up against numerous Walkers (zombies) but instead of just either shooting them to death or clubbing them to death there will be a series of button combinations that pop up and a cursor in which you can move to objects and other bits a bit like a point and click adventure game. The characters in the game are similar by name to the show but look quite a bit different when you're playing through. The Walking Dead features a bit of cross genre with action/adventure coming in to play at times and also role playing elements too. The game was also developed and published by Telltale Games. STORY You are Lee Everett who was a university professor before everything changed. The game starts with Lee being transported out of Atlanta by a police officer in the back of a police car for something unknown at the time to the player. ...

Dragon's Dogma (Xbox 360) 22/05/2013

Skyrim But Better??

Dragon's Dogma (Xbox 360) DRAGON'S DOGMA Dragon's Dogma is a role playing action game that is very similar to games such as the Elder Scrolls series and Two Worlds with one of the major changes from those games being that this one is a third person game. Dragon's Dogma was developed and published by Capcom with the game set in an open fantasy world full of different mythological creatures. This game isn't just an action role playing game because it also features a hack and slash theme with bits of horror mixed in. Dragon's Dogma is available for the PS3 as well as the Xbox 360. STORY One of the things I absolutely loved about this game was the excellent story. Not only is it slightly different but its also very easy to follow and enjoy. In a small fishing town called Cassardis, a dragon attacks killing almost everything that stands in its way. The dragon then sets his sets his sights on the hero of the game (the character you create can be male/female). After a brief battle with the fire breathing beast, the dragon rips out your heart and kills you but don't fear this is the start of the game. The hero is then revived as the Arisen and he must now set off on his journey in search of the dragon that stole his heart. Can you help the Arisen slay the beast, take your heart back and save the land before its destroyed. GAMEPLAY Dragon's Dogma is a fantastic game full of variety. There aren't a whole lot of customization options at the start of the game and your main characters appearance wont look ...

Resident Evil 6 (Xbox 360) 28/04/2013

No Hope Left!

Resident Evil 6 (Xbox 360) RESIDENT EVIL 6 Resident Evil games have always been one of my favourite series even though they have gone from being a survival horror to a more action based and story driven series. Resident Evil 6 is a third person action game and the first Resident Evil game to feature a total of seven different playable characters with four different stories. Resident Evil 6 is available on the PS3 and PC as well as this Xbox 360 version. The game was published and developed by Capcom who are also the creators of games such as the Street Fighter series and the Dead Rising series. Resident Evil 6 for the Xbox 360 comes with two discs. Disc one is the game disc and disc two is a voice over disc full of different languages for the game. STORY Resident Evil 6 features a quality and easy to follow storyline. The game features four different stories, one for each character. Each characters story ends up clashing with the other characters throughout the game and this leads to the story becoming a little surprising with a few surprises. The game has a few new characters. Jake Muller one of the new characters is a mercenary and the son of the late bio-terrorist Albert Wesker (who was killed in Resident Evil 5 by Chris Redfield). Jake teams up with Sherry Birkin who's mission is to bring back Jake because his blood contains anti-bodies for the C-Virus. Elsewhere Chris Redfield makes his return with another newcomer Piers Nivans. Piers persuades Chris to rejoin the BSAA as their captain ...

Max Payne 3 (Xbox 360) 25/05/2012

Hes Back And This Time He Means Business!!!

Max Payne 3 (Xbox 360) MAX PAYNE 3 Max Payne 3 is a third person shooter game available on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 along with the PC. The game is the third installment in the franchise of the well renown Rockstar Games who both developed and published the game. Rockstar are most notable for their open world GTA and Red Dead games and its nice to see them go back on an older project and make a third in the series. I was a massive fan when Max Payne 1 and 2 were released back on the PS2 and as soon as I heard a third game was coming I immediately couldn't wait. I finally got my hands on the game just recently and was literally blown away by what the game has to offer and how much fun the game can be. Max Payne 3 on the Xbox 360 is actually two discs. On disc one you have the first part of the main game along with multiplayer and other bits and on disc two is part two of the story and other bits. So how does the game fair overall? STORY So Max is back after several years of having a so called quiet life. Hes looking considerably older than he looked in Max Payne 2 but don't let this fool you because Max has still got it! So obviously you play as the icon himself Max Payne and the game is mostly set in São Paulo with the odd flashbacks of Max in Hoboken, New Jersey where Max has become addicted to painkillers and alcohol. Max went to São Paulo after getting a job basically protecting a very wealthy family. Max saves Rodrigo and his wife Fabiana from being kidnapped but the kidnappers make a ...

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Xbox Live Arcade) 24/04/2012

SYMPHONY OF THE NIGHT!

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Xbox Live Arcade) CASTLEVANIA: SYMPHONY OF THE NIGHT I first heard about this game way back when it was the era of the PS1 and I have to say when I first heard this was going to Xbox Live Arcade I was delighted. Castlevania Symphony Of The Night is an action adventure 2D scrolling game that was developed by KCET and published by Konami. The game is available for the PS1, Sega Saturn and Xbox Live Arcade. This is my all time favourite Castlevania game and this one was the 14th in the series of games by Konami. This Castlevania was the first in the series to steer away from the level by level type game and actually feature a mix of platforming and role playing elements as well. It also features an easy to follow story as you play as the character known as Alucard. STORY The game starts with you controlling a different character called Richter who is on a final battle against Dracula. After defeating Dracula in which you cant really lose the game starts properly with Alucard who has returned to the castle several years on to finish what is left of it. Inside Alucard meets Death who tells him to stop his mission and also rells him not to destroy the castle. Death strips Alucard of all his good equipment. Now Alucard must work his way through the castle defeating whatever stands in his way. On the way he meets several people some of which are helpful. Can you bring down the castle once and for all? GAMEPLAY The game is a 2D scrolling game but its not like most 2D games because not only do ...

Armored Core V (Xbox 360) 19/04/2012

Come Heavy Or Not At All!

Armored Core V (Xbox 360) ARMORED CORE V Armored Core V is a 3D mecha based video game that is available for the PS3 and Xbox 360. The game was developed by From Software and published by Namco Bandai. Previous games in the series I haven't been a massive fan but after hearing good things about the game from my cousin and realizing it was quite cheap on release day I thought I would give the game a chance. Armored Core V isn't a sequel to the previous games but it is the 5th in the current series and the 14th in the series overall. The game doesn't feature a story at all but does feature a total of 10 story missions with a different objective in each and there are almost 100 side missions as well as online play. This is by far one of the most exciting Armored Core games as well as the biggest. This Armored Core is more tactical based than all out action but the game still has tons of action. GAMEPLAY In the Armored Core V main menu there is numerous options available which include start mission if you want to quickly get into the main game or side missions that are available. Upon completing missions more and more become available. Doing mission objectives will result in an overall ranking and also cash is earned to spend how you see fit. Rendezvous is if you're in a team and someone is about to start a mission and you want to join them. It automatically puts you with them on the same mission so you can do it as a team. There are also mock battles in which you can set the rules and the map and you ...

Harvest Moon: Animal Parade (Wii) 14/04/2012

There's Trouble In Harmonica Town!

Harvest Moon: Animal Parade (Wii) HARVEST MOON: ANIMAL PARADE Harvest Moon is one of my all time favourite games. Its fun, addictive and suitable for just about everyone. This is yet another farming simulation game from developers Marvelous Entertainment and publishers Natsume and Rising Star Games. The game is only available for the Nintendo Wii. Harvest Moon usually revolves around running your own farm in a small little town with a bunch of friendly villages that you can befriend and even marry should you wish too. There are three different official release Harvest Moon games on the Wii which include Magical Melody, Tree Of Tranquility and of course this one and I would say Animal Parade is the most intriguing with more options and a little more variety in its gameplay. The story to the game is just like any Harvest Moon game and to be honest it doesn't get old with the similarities in the story. STORY You pick either a boy or girl as your character but note the story is the same for each. The town of Harmonica is struggling because all of the animals of the town are deciding to up and leave because the divine tree which stands in the middle of the Harvest Goddess pond is withering away. The only thing that can save the land is the Harvest King but he is nowhere to be found and time is running out. Also five bells around the island have lost their powers and need to be rung again. Your missions are to ring the five bells, find the Harvest king and revive the Goddess Tree. All of which must also be done ...

Silent Hill 8: Downpour (Xbox 360 ) 10/04/2012

A Town Called Silent Hill, Where Fear And Torment Are Inescapable

Silent Hill 8: Downpour (Xbox 360 ) SILENT HILL DOWNPOUR Silent Hill games have been right up there in my all time favourite games and Silent hill Downpour has to go down as one of the best Silent hill games around. Silent Hill Downpour is a survival horror game and is the 8th installment in the Silent Hill franchise. Silent Hill Downpour was developed by Vatra Games and published by Konami and is available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 only. Silent Hill Downpour has had some very cruel reviews in my opinion and Silent Hill Downpour in my eyes has FINALLY reached the quality that Silent Hill 2 proved out to be. The story is fantastic and in the game you finally get to explore the whole of the misty and mysterious town of Silent Hill. The game centers around puzzle solving more than combat which I think makes the game much more thrilling. Also Downpour is the first Silent Hill game to heavily involve water hense the name Downpour and I also think this is an added bonus to the game. STORY You are Murphy Pendleton a convict in the Ryall State Corrections Facility who was convicted for several years after being caught stealing a police cruiser. Murphy agrees a deal with George Sewell who works as an officer inside the prison. Sewell secretly helps Murphy set up an inmate in the shower in which Murphy beats to death with a pipe and stabs him with a knife for a reason unknown till later in the game. Murphy and a few of his fellow inmates are transfer to Wayside Maximum Security Prison after a riot breaks out but as ...
