Well I'm back for a short time now, since one of the hardest part of my studies is over now.
I'm pretty sure the coming reviews wont be of much help, because most games I'm reviewing are probably allready considered 'old' again.

So first of all, I'll start with the most recent game I've been playing: Hitman - Absolution
After that, maybe Diablo 3 which I've been playing once in a while since its release.
Maybe WoW Mists of Pandaria - but first I'll have to think of lots of fitting insults for that review.
What I'm currently interested in, is Endless Space and Planet Side 2.
I was also playing some Dark Souls (PC) and DayZ, but I'll have to think about writing something about those two.

So if there is, or ever was somebody in this world who gives/gave a fuck about my opinion on games, look forward.

Dead Island review

My thoughts on Dead Island:

Finally a game I was waiting for (almost 4 years?!). In many reviews Dead Island is compared to Left for Dead; well I have to admit I haven't played any Left for Dead at all, so I can't tell if it's better or worse (most say worse). First I'll try to describe it:
It's something like a mix of Resident Evil + Crysis + Fallout + Diablo 2. Resident Evil because of the different Zombies; Crysis because of the Island; Fallout because of the freedom in the world and Diablo 2 because of the items and the hacking and slaying + collecting.
You shouldn't search for a deep story - because the story is more like Contra for example - just kill everything. Which means it's more of a Ko-op game. So don't play alone and go get 3 friends.
Besides [playing it for "free" online, is pretty easy].
Now some details:
You can choose from 4 different characters, each of them has his own speciality and a 3 unique skilltrees. There is a huge variaty of weapons and modifications - baseballbat + nails = nailed baseballbat!!!! - from a Katana to a Sledgehammer to a machine gun; there is everything and they have different unique levels.
So if you think a (almost) free world RPG Ko-op Zombie slaying game is something for - it's Dead Island.
But now some disadvantages:
Well as said, there is no real story. The graphics aren't really great (maybe a little bit worse then Far Cry 2?). It somehow can get boring, because you're really just hacking and slaying like a retard the whole game through. Can't think of anything negative right now.
So, I hope I could help you with your decision of playing this game - see you next review.
Next time, I'll try and hack my Wii again (Letterbomb) and I'll try some Wii games (Xenoblade, FatalFrame 4, the calling).

ARMA 2: Free review

My thoughts on Arma2: Free

Sorry for not reviewing anything new, but it'll take some time until there's something worth reviewing (for exmaple Dead Island; A10 Warthog). So for now, I'll just review something older which isn't so well known. Not everyone is aware, that there is a Free Multiplayer Version of Arma 2. First of all that's pretty awesome, but of course there are some disadvantages you should know.
If you don't know Arma2 or Operation Flashpoint or Bohemia Interactive in general, you're most likely female, underage, both or one of those Call of Duty / Battelfield retards who think, that's how real war looks like herp derp - konsols are best! Well Arma 2 is a military-simulator - so not some other FSP. Most likely you'll just die from one shot and you'll probably have no fucking idea were it came from. If you're lucky and survive a hit, you'll probably just bleed and roll around on the ground crying for a medic for the rest of the game.
So the obvious advantage is, it's free! Second, it's pretty fun as a multiplayer game, for example playing a special ops mission with some friends.
But there are some ugly disadvantages. Worst of all, you most likely wont get the graphics and/or performace you'd like to have. My PC is 5 years old, so it's not that surprising for me, but an i7+GTX 560 isn't much of a help either!! + the free version has crappy textures (well it's free).
Secondly, well it's a multiplayer version, so there is only 1 single player mission and 2 benchmarks.

So, that's about it - the mission editor could probably be interesting for you - or at least it's interesting because there are many extra maps/fun maps.

Deux Ex: Human Revolution review

My thoughts on Deus Ex

Well finally I was able to just start playing yesterday (the whole day through). And my very first impression was 'boring'; but it gets better with the time. So now I'm past the first Boss encounter and now the games is becoming real fun.
The whole game feels a little bit like FPS-Mass Effect with some elements of Fallout, Bioshock and Splinter Cell - so it must be fun at some point.
The story isn't bad, but it could be a little bit more thrilling or more dramatic dunno - even though I'm not that type, but I think it lacks some emotions. The gameplay isn't really new, so you get used to it quickly; shoot peoples head or sneak behind them, then trigger 'Q', hide bodys, job done.
That's about the most negative I could find + two bugs (a corpse and a basketball fell through the ground).
What I really like, is the dialog system! You wont believe me, but it's somewhat better than Mass Effect for example. In most situations you can actually controll the conversation and you can't just make good(blue) and bad(red) decisions - you really just make your own decision.
What's almost better is the difficulty! I really love the difficulty - I heard it fits your skills dynamically?! Not sure if that's true, but it feels like it. The first Boss encounter was really difficult but still wasn't frustrating. Maybe he was difficult because he had a gattling-arm and I was specialised on hacking?!
So, I'd say, go get the game - it's not ultra innovative but still pretty fun - and you can't tell that from the last games of this year!

I'm back

Sorry to anyone who follows me, that it took so long for my next post.
Well first of all, I had a lot of studying; second, my Computer is somehow wounded (my CPU becomes 82°C even with my ne huge fan on it); well and third, all the time there were no fucking games worth to review?!
I tried some Witcher 2, but this is the first game, which is just to heavy for my old computer.
I played some Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition - not much to review here, it's somewhat the same as normal SF4, just lots of new Chars.
But hopefully I'll get my hands on the new Deus Ex today or tomorrow and I'll try to give you all one of my honest reviews.

See you tomorrow.

The Witcher Review

My thoughts on the witcher

 First of all, sorry to all my followers for waiting so long, but I had some major changes in life and simply had no time for playing games and therefor no time for blogging.
So, after crapping my pants with Amnesia, I've been searching for something more relaxing - a role-playing game perhaps?! On my search I found the new Trailer and gameplay for 'the witcher 2' and remembered I allways wanted to try this one, just forgot it everytime.

Positive thoughts:
The first thing I like is; the game seems pretty huge - it took me almost 2 days to get to the near end of chapter 2 - and there are like 7 chapters (5 chapters+proloug+ending). The areas/cities are pretty big as well - without becoming similiar. Also very important - even though you have to walk a lot, it's not that annoying.
The story is solid. All quests (primary or side quest) are thought through properly and you even have to THINK sometimes (W T F? thinking???). But all in all the story isn't really ground breaking - but at least not bad.
What I really like - are the minigames and side quests going along with those games. You can win some money pretty easy with boxing some guys in the tavern or you play some dice-poker(yahtzee?!). There are also some hard to find dialogs and quests with (for example) normal looking citizens - most of them ending with sex...
Somehow in the whole game you won't find the normal sensation of allways finding better equip - but it's fun to search for weapon improvements/recipies/trophies/other secrets.

Negative thoughts:
The biggest pile of crap in the game - is the fighting system! You fight, by simply clicking + pressing some spells... that's it. I can't explain why I don't like it (because at some point it's like the Gothic series - which I actually like), but it's really boring and lame (and I'm normally not the Micheal Bay-games type!).
The second worst thing in the game is the skilltree! The options are extremely limited - put some points in strength and some in the sword fighting tree and some points in magic.. done. Absolutely NO combinations or any opportunities for building something unique! Which gets to the next point.
It's NO role-playing game!!!!! You're the goddamn witcher.. that's it!

So for everyone who is waiting for 'the witcher 2' - playing 'the witcher' first probably isn't that bad, somehow it's definitely fun.

Amnesia review

My (scared) thoughts on Amnesia

During my search for a good Horror-game for the Wii (Calling), instead I found Amnesia - The Dark Desent (PC).
Well and I have to say, this is the most intense fu**ed-up Horror-survival I have ever played. I played some Resident Evil parts, Doom 3, the Stalker series, Dead Space 1+2 and I thought all of them (especially Stalker) are pretty much rape. BUT there is one big difference between all those games and Amnesia.. you don't have a fucking gun! It's only human flesh vs. claws!
This means you can only run away. Oh I forgot to mention, you have to solve puzzles AND run away.
Meanwhile your vision will get blurry if you're to long in the dark.. you'll hear steps behind you and lots of other disturbing noises.
That's pretty much everything that counts - there's nothing to complain about the graphics or the gameplay, also it's not completly full of scripted shit like FEAR.
So, if you like screaming alone in your dark room, you'll need Amnesia.
Pro tipp: Play alone - loud - headphones - night - extreme dark. (Turn the Gamma down and the Soundvolume up until your pants start getting warm and smelly!)
