GameFly: Top 5 Games To Check For

20 07 2008

If you up on games like myself, then you’ve had to have checked out the E3 coverage. Here’s my top 5 joints to be amped about:

1. Resident Evil 5

With controversy already stirring up due to the games location being set in Africa, Capcom is back with Resident Evil 5. Resident Evil 5 picks up where its predecessor Resident Evil 4 left off, with the invasion of parasites corrupting human beings. When have you known the Resident Evil series to disappoint? Resident Evil 5 is slated to drop Mar. 13th ’09 for PS3 and Xbox 360.

2. Gears of War 2

In 2006, Microsoft surprised gamers with it’s breakthrough hit Gears Of War. With an interesting storyline and a graphically detailed environnment, Gears Of War made a name for itself. NextGen systems have had numerous shooters, but Gears of War definitely stood out. What put GoW in a league of its own, was the online gameplay. This time around, the online gameplay will allow up to ten players to play simultaneously. Gears of War 2 will be available on Xbox 360 consoles Nov. 7th.

3. Street Fighter 4

Damn near the best fighting franchise is back for its fourth addition to the series. Recurring favorites (Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Vega, etc.) and some new fighters, will appear in this game. With unique 2.5D-animated graphics, online capability, super and ultra moves, Street Fighter 4 looks like dope ass game. SF4 will hit Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles later this year.

4. Final Fantasy XIII

The epic rpg series returns with Final Fantasy 13. If this is anything like FF7 or FF8, then this will be worth it. Peep the vid.

5. Mortal Kombat vs. DC

Honestly, I wasn’t feelin this concept when I first heard it. After the viewing the game footage, it changed my mind. Of course its no Marvel vs. Capcom, MK vs. DC looks like its worth checking out. In MK vs. DC, you will see your favorite MK characters (Sub Zero, Scorpion, Johnny Cage) take on DC comic characters (Batman, Superman, Flash). In the past Mortal Kombat branded itself as a gory fighting game, while DC characters are the opposite. The game will feature blood, but it will be to a minimum and fatalities will still be available to finish your foe off. MK vs. DC drops Nov. 18th on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Honorable Mentions: Fable 2, NBA Live 09, Resistance 2, and Mega Man 9.

20 07 2008

What up world!
This is the grand opening of my blog page titled Hip Hop A.D. (big ups to Uch Da God for the name).
Hip Hop A.D. is made to keep fans informed on whats going on in our genre of music. We will feature news, reviews, videos, streamed music and more. Aside from hip hop, we will keep you posted on everything from women, sports, video games, movies, politics, and so on. The page will be updated on a daily to weekly basis, so peep the site frequently and feel free to leave comments and feedback. Enjoy the blogs, you are watching a genius at work.
A little about myself, I’m an avid hip hop fan who has dreams of making it into the industry. Whether it’s being a writer, talent scout, or artist; I feel I have the potential to make it. I often get suggestions that I should venture into journalism, and all I’m doing is sticking to the advice I’ve been getting. I currently work for Sony Pictures Entertainment as an Computer Instructor. I kick knowledge to Sony employees on Photoshop (note: I do all of my own artwork), MS Office (Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, Project, and Word), and more. Feel free to check my Myspace to get to know me from a more personal perspective.
