Bethesda's WET

Bethesda is publishing a new game called WET, previewed at E3 2009. This game is going to be, simply put, a badass action adventure game that looks to give John Woo and Kill Bill a run for it's money. This game is going to be an in your face intense action game with stylistic and cinematic gameplay. As in, when you're killing, you're gonna be looking good while doing it. This game is multiconsole, but more importantly, it's coming to the Xbox 360 on September 15th. Sad that it doesn't have any multiplayer options via Xbox Live, but it's single player capabilities will suffice. None the less, you should get your Free Xbox Live like I showed you in my first post. Bethesda's WET seems like it's going to be the main game in spot light for the Action Adventure genre.

This game successfully manages to blend Acrobatics, Swordplay and Gunplay all in one. Allowing you to transition from one to the next, swiftly and beautifully. This game has great graphics, nothing ground breaking, but it's up to standard for the modern generation. The main characters name is Rubi and she goes as a no nonsense, enigmatic character driven by money and hatred. A character who is back stabbed and betrayed and is seemingly out for revenge.

This game follows a more retro style of the common action movie of the 1970s. This game has fairly simple controls, and will often leave you in areas where you're in an enclosed space with a mass of enemies. The goal of this game is said to be that you never slow down, and you make extensive use of acrobatics. While in acrobatics mode, you have two guns, one gun autoaims to a target enemy, and the other one is free aimed with the right analog stick. While in a slowed motion, you are able to deal more damage, and aim easier, allowing you to take out multiple enemies at once. This is what makes you feel impelled to use the acrobats mode, it makes the game more fluent and easier to get through, while being fun and attracting at the same time.

In an attempt to keep the action always on going, the game allows you to wallrun across both walls and enemies, swing from poles, and allows you to seamlessly string these acrobatic moves so that you're always in movement, not interrupting the action. Your acrobatic kills will get nicknames ingame, and you will gain points for your stylistic kills that can be used to unlock new weapons.

One amazing feature in this game is called Rage mode, which can be initiated automatically some time in the game play. You are able to deal more damage and take more damage, and you get heavily rewarded for linking your kills stylistically. Though there will be some qualms to come with this mode as well. On top of that, devs are working on something called Rubi vision, so you can see what objects are interactive in the environment. Sort of like in Mirrors Edge, where you can see the interactive parts in the environment. There are eight to ten hours of single player mode and no multiplayer modes available. So visit my post to find out how to get Free Xbox Live, just to prepare for any potential DLC they may release.

If you're looking for an action packed game to get, keep your eyes peeled for Bethesda's WET.

Assassin's Creed II Changes

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed II is shaping up to be an incredible experience. The developers are seeking to correct all of it's past problems that it's had with the original Assassin's Creed, and make the upcoming, Fall release, Assassin's Creed II a varied and exciting experience by adding many new features and increasing the difficulty a bit. I wonder why they didn't add any DLC though. You should get your Free Xbox Live as shown in my first post, just in case they do decide to release DLC for this sequel. Kotaku has a post on how the new Assassin's Creed will be better in just about every way.

One feature I liked about this game is how it made use of some of Leonardo da Vinci's techology, such as his flying machine. It's a very realistic addition, since it pertains to the timeline, yet it adds for a more enjoyable experience. They're going more in depth with this sequel, giving you the ability to do more. One thing that angered many fans is how Altair couldn't swim, a trained assassin not being able to swim was a ridiculous concept. So Ubisoft correcting that, the new assassin Ezio will be able to swim in this more open world.

One thing emphasized was the new ways on how you can kill your enemies in Assassin's Creed II. In the original, you had a limited strategy and limited ways of killing your enemy. Basically every assassination was the same as before, and it bored a lot of people. When people spoke of the game, they suggested it as a rental for it's story, but the gameplay would get boring quick. To fix this, Assassin's Creed II will offer new ways to stash your enemies body, new ways for escaping your enemy, and forcing you to use new tactics when it comes to dispatching your enemies.

The demo that was played by Kotaku showed how you can stash your enemies body in new ways to prevent being spotted. Shown by how Ezio was sitting on a bench, an enemy walked by, he killed the enemy and placed him on the bench. An easy way of making sure you stay out of the spotlight while getting the job done. This shows how the hiding spots for the original can become places to easily place your corpses. Another example is by how Ezio hopped into a batch of hay in an attempt to escape, the enemy is smarter, however, so they searched the hay and found him. So Ezio killed him, and placed him in the hay to hide his body.

There are more assassination's in this game than in the original as well. There will be two types of guards now, bigger guards and smaller guards. Bigger Guards are harder to fight while being slower and easier to escape. The smaller guards are swifter but a bit harder to escape on foot. Which brings up the next feature they brought into the game, area's of alarm. Like GTA4, there is an area marked on the map when you're spotted. This is an unsafe zone, and to escape, you need to exit that unsafe zone. A pretty nifty feature, and Ubisoft promises that there will be no endless chases. Though that may be fun for some of us. Though there are more ways to kill your enemies, you still can not perform underwater or in-water assassinations.

This game will feature night and day cycles, better assassination's, and all of the features wanted from the original that weren't there. This game will be a must buy, to say the least. If you liked the original Assassin's Creed, or even liked it a little, you should really buy this one. It was improved upon in basically every way. I suggest you get Free Xbox Live like I show you in my first post, just to prepare for the coming of Assassin's Creed II.

Importance of Xbox Live

You may not notice, but the Importance of Xbox Live is increasing for you Xbox 360 users. It'd be hard for you not to notice, actually. With the age of digital distribution approaching, consoles are requiring an increasing amount of internet use. Such as Xbox Live, which basically requires you to connect to it to enjoy the Xbox 360 to it's fullest potential. Xbox Live offers demo's, Xbox Live Arcade games, Xbox Original's and premium content. Free Xbox Live will be extremely useful at times Most people who don't have internet access are losing out on most of the fun, as well as those without Microsoft Points. Those without Microsoft Points are still enjoying the console, but they may miss out on some good DLC for a game that they play. As you see, as the consoles get more advanced, their ties to the internet become stronger, which stresses the Importance of Xbox Live.

For those of you with Xbox Live, if you've beaten a game, you most likely will play it again maybe to get Achievements you've once lost or something. Then you may get bored of it, the beauty of Xbox Live how the developers release DLC periodically to reinstate your interest in the game. For those of you who don't have Xbox Live or access to an internet connection, you're basically screwed. You will have to wait or hope for the developers to include the DLC with the game, which would cost you more money anyway. Xbox Live provides an easy way to update your game with new DLC. Not only that, but Xbox Live users have access to game demo's, which they can use to help judge what the next game they want to get is. They have access to the Xbox Live Arcade, so they can download small or popular games to play, for extra fun. They also have access to premium content such as dashboard themes and avatar clothing. The benefits from having Xbox Live far out weighs the benefits of not having it. The main reason being, you get to play multiplayer games. You should get your Free Xbox Live as shown in my first post, if you're one of those without Xbox Live membership. I'm pretty sure Microsoft will only continue to show their focus in Xbox Live.

As you see, your Microsoft Points and Xbox Live are becoming increasingly important. Microsoft will probably become fully digital distribution. Meaning they'll even sell full games over their Xbox Live service, which is a major possibility. Since it greatly prevents piracy. So when you hear about the next generation consoles featuring Digital Distribution abilities, it shouldn't be a surprise to you, In fact, it should be expected. Even Sony is experimenting with it. So visit my first post to find out how you can get Free Xbox Live. Watch as the Importance of Xbox Live increases.

Shadow Complex | Xbox Live Title

Shadow Complex is a new Xbox Live Arcade title being released in the near future. This game is being made by Epic Games, the creators of the Gears of War franchise. This game is looking to break barriers and take the throne as the best Xbox Live Arcade title that the Xbox 360 has to offer. At the price of some Microsoft Points, Epic Games will be dishing out Shadow Complex to you guys soon. Read my first post so you can get your Free Xbox Live, so you have your membership ready. But it isn't a game that everyone knows about yet, so I'm here to explain a bit about what Shadow Complex really is.

Shadow Complex is a game that has been compared to Metroid on multiple occasions. If you don't know, for an adventure game, that is a very good thing. Though it's not a knock off of Metroid, it's looking to pay homage to it, and be a great side scrolling adventure game. It has the same characteristics of a metroid game, which will be good for those of you who like story, intruiging gameplay elements, and a good adventure in your games. It's graphics are also pretty stunning for an Xbox Live title.

You will be able to find power-ups, items, back track, and enhance your abilities. Shadow Complex is a game that will last you a while. If it's not the best game, it'll be one of the longest lasting games available to you through Xbox Live. If I remember correctly, it has around 5 hours or more of gameplay. You play some one fighting their way through an underground base, faced with enemies of all kinds. The game has environmental puzzle elements, key to most games of it's type. One thing that was said to be a problem with the game was that the enemies have poor AI. In the sense that they are seemingly blind, as if you are standing across the room in plain sight, they will not be able to see you. Some of you may like an easy, dull, enemy like that, but when your setting is in a military underground base, that sort of behavior does not fit. The game will cost you 1200 Microsoft Points, and a file close to or over 1 gb.

The game pays homage to many old games such as Metroid and Castlevania as seen by the first couple of hours of gameplay. It's not necessarily a bad thing, though some may choose to nitpick about that. It's respectable to say the least. As the game goes on, it's originality starts to shine through all the homages. That is what will set the game apart from the rest, it's originality and what it brings to the table. The pacing in Shadow Complex is well done, transitioning from fire fights to a new discovery. It's a very smooth transition and works well. A great feature of this game is that though you are only able to move in 2D, your gun shoots in 3D. So you might have shot all of the enemies in your path, but there can be enemies in the background trying to attack you as well. Not only that, but this game incorporates small RPG elements. Such as an XP system in which you can gain XP from killing enemies, discovering new areas, and gaining it from multipliers for creative kills.

Shadow Complex is a well done game, to say the least, and will probably be praised for a long time. For all Xbox 360 and Xbox Live players that like a good adventure, this game will be a must have. For an Xbox Live game, it has amazing replayability and game length. So for those of you who don't know, keep an eye out for Epic Game's, Shadow Complex. If you don't have your gold membership, check out my first post on how to get Free Xbox Live.

Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 3

Call of Duty: World at War is the fifth installment to the Call of Duty franchise, and the Call of Duty:World at War Map Pack 3 has recently been announced. This game takes you back into World War 2 as many other War games have before, but in a way that's better than the rest. This game, though it's had rocky reviews, is probably one of the best World War 2 games there is, so it's definitely worth taking a look at. You should make sure you take advantage of getting your Free Xbox Live so you won't have to worry about paying it, so you can enjoy playing World at War online.

The Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 3 comes with 4 new maps for players to explore. Three of them being regular maps to play matches on, one of them being a map specialized for the Zombie mode. Along with the maps, 10 new achievements are being added to World at War and one of them hints at a Ray Gun achievement. The Ray Gun has been in World at War since launch, but I guess they're looking for all ways to add new achievements. Some of the new achievements include killing 40 zombies with your knife, opening all doors in the map, and using a monkey bomb. Pretty simple achievements, I think. Make sure you have your Free Xbox Live membership so you're able to show off your achievements and have your friends help you with them, if they include zombies.

This World at War Map Pack 3 will be released in August, which is coming up pretty soon actually. The map pack is expected to be priced at 800 Microsoft Points, which is the average amount that all DLC is priced at. Three of the map packs are named Battery, Revolution, and Breach. The level design for these map packs look pretty good actually, I recommend you buy them. If you have Call of Duty: World at War, you're most likely looking for a way to enjoy it more anyway. Map packs add a new sense of fun, since you'll be playing in maps that you've never have before. Some people are starting to regret that they've sold their copy of Call of Duty: World at War, don't be one of those people! The game is still being supported by Treyarch, so you might as well enjoy it while the support lasts. So get your Free Xbox Live so you can be able to stay up to date with all the map packs that they have to offer. And keep your eyes peeled next month for the Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 3.

Xbox Live Guide

Here is my Xbox Live Guide. On what specifically? This post will talk briefly about getting Free Xbox Live, and then tell you about things you can do on Xbox Live. On the Xbox 360, most users with a gamertag will connect to Xbox Live for the sole purpose of connecting to Xbxo Live so that they can play multiplayer games, download exclusive content, or purchase premium content. But if you're new to Microsoft's Xbox 360, read this xbox 360 live guide.

First off, you need to create your Xbox Live gamertag. This Xbox Live Guide addresses how you should go about navigating the Xbox Live Marketplace. I should note quickly that once you sign up, or get your Xbox 360, you may have also gotten a free month of gold membership. Gold Membership is what allows you to be able to play multiplayer games on Xbox Live. Without it, you're pretty much only allowed to have a friendslist. So first things first, I advise you get an xbox 360 live gold membership, which can be done by reading the first post in this blog. The first post in the blog teaches you how to get a Free Xbox Live membership. But let's move on to talking about what the xbox 360 marketplace has to offer.

There is many things you're able to do as you can see. If you're a hardcore gamer, you'll most likely be concerned with demo's, full games and arcade games. To download demo's, I believe you need to be an Xbox Live Gold member, but I'm not sure. Demo's are perfect if you're looking to buy a game, but you want to test the game first. You can download as many demos as your HDD can hold. I've downloaded well over 10 demo's probably. The next thing you should know is that you can buy past Xbox Games from the Xbox 360 Market place, for microsoft points. These are full games optimized to play on your Xbox 360 console. This is perfect if you have an Xbox 360 but never got to enjoy some of the classics that the original Xbox had to offer. Last thing I'd recommend to you is the arcade games. Surprisingly enough, there are many xbox live arcade games that are really worth buying.

With that being said, you also will have access to downloadable content released by game developers, when you are on Xbox Live. Developers often release updates and added content to their video games in the form of DLC, that you pay for with your microsoft points. This is just a brief post on what Xbox Live has to offer, because everything can't be covered in one post. The next post I write may focus on some of the other things you can do with Xbox Live, such as downloading movies or making parties with your friends. Thanks for reading my Xbox Live Guide.
