Well the title basically says it all, but I’m talking in a financial perspective on video games. What I’m saying is that you should live under a rock and live 2 years behind release dates of game so when you finally hear about them they will be really cheap. I am speaking hypothetically, so don’t take my word for it exactly.
If you are on the edge of you’re seat and want to know if you are a hardcore or casual gamer, well you came to the right place. You know you are hardcore if you spend more than 10 hours a week gaming. You know you are casual if the only games you have are XBLA or PSN little downloadable games. That was part one, stay tuned for more ways to tell if you are hardcore or casual.
Recently on Xbox Live there came a demo of a little RTS game called Halo Wars. Halo Wars is an RTS game that is supposedly suppose to redesign RTS games on the console, and it definitely delivers. As a hardcore RTS gamer coming to this it was a bit confusing for me because I was used to the crazy hardcore so called “confusing” controls of the games like command and conquer. Overall the demo will please someone just coming into RTS gaming. The game sets a while back from Halo1. The cut scenes look amazing and the animations are just like the FPS versions of the game. The demo lets you play 2 missions and 1 skirmish map, which is chasms, a snow glacier map.The controls are easy and quick to learn. A=select X=move to/attack Y=special attack/move B=cancel LB=select all units LT=I actually don’t know get RB=select all units on screen RT=scroll through selected units. That’s basically the controls of Halo Wars. So even if you don’t like RTSs but you are a Halo fan this is definitely the really long time it takes to download this 1.4 GB file.
As you all may know the Japanese love square enix games, and they love Dragon Quest especially. But unfortunately for our friends in japan, they will have to wait another four whole months to get their Dragon Quest IX on. Dragon Quest IX has been delayed, in Japan, from March 28 all the way to June 11 due to major bugs in the game. Square has not yet released information about the bugs yet, but they must have been major to delay the game for that long of a period of time. You can only imagine what type of bugs, insect bugs? Or the type of bug when you turn on your system the world goes boom. So give a big hug to anybody looking forward to this game, as their addiction will not be out for a while.
