Bulletstorm is an over-the-top first person shooter filled with unique attacks, foul language, vulgar jokes, and burly guys leaping straight out of a male power fantasy. The gameplay is bloody, but the game’s environments are beautiful. Personally, my favorite part is that the protagonist, Grayson Hunt, is voiced by Steven Blum. It’s awesome to put myself in the shoes of someone who has Steven Blum’s voice even if the game obviously wasn’t geared toward my demographic.
I’m only a few hours into Bulletstorm on Xbox 360 and can’t pass final judgment on it yet, but I like it well enough so far. I could live without half the gay jokes, though, and I hope there’s more than one female character in the game.It’s not perfect, but it’s entertaining enough to continue playing through the campaign.
Unfortunately, I’m still struggling with the controls. They just don’t make any sense to me.
Crouch butten! Y U no be B butten? (Stupid reference to “Dot dot dot” with misspelling of “butten”? Check.)
I may be the only person who has trouble with this setup, but it honestly interferes with my gaming. The controls are so clunky that they mess me up during fights.
I’m ashamed to say that I haven’t done much work on More in March. For some reason I keep wandering around the internet instead of playing through my games – which, I must say, I enjoy quite a bit more than getting lost on the internet. One of my favorite games on my More in March list, Borderlands 2, has hardly seen the light of day for a month. The DLC we planned for March, Sir Hammerlock’s Big Game Hunt, is fairing even worse with a whopping zero hours of gameplay. I haven’t played Wind Waker or Polarium this month, either.
So close, yet so far. Actually I'm more on the "far" side than "close," but this is one seriously adorable tortoise fail.
Four in February was kind of a bust for some folks, it seems. A lot of people simply couldn’t reach their goal. That’s not surprising for those of us who can’t manage their time as well as they should. Personally, I ended up being busier in February than I anticipated. That’s kinda how life is, though. You make plans, then BAM! Life smacks you upside the head and you have to change those plans. That’s why the good folks on the Four in February facebook page came up with More in March. I’m-a do this!
Are the rules like Four in February’s rules? Where, you know, there are no rules? I don’t know, and I don’t care. Here’s my criteria: I do what I want! I’ve got separate criteria for each game I’m planning on playing this month. I’m not exactly doing More in March as a month-long campaign like I did Four in February, nor am I bothering to stick with four particular games. So, really, this is more like a list of games I plan to play this month. Deal with it!
Okay, so I lied a bit regarding the title. This post is not a fairy-tale. THIS IS THE REAL-DEAL GOD’S-HONEST HERE, SON. It’s been over two weeks since I last posted and made a passing mention of providing a progress update. Behold, a mid-month progress report that chronicles my rise to power!
When I watched the VGAs a few months back, I was really excited when the voice actor for Borderlands 2′s Handsome Jack won an award for his performance. Dameon Clarke did a fantastic job as the game’s resident Bad Guy, and I think he totally deserved that award. After he won I got all excited. But my sister-in-law, who doesn’t play many games outside of Peggle or Angry Birds, was a little lost. Then she noticed that Dameon Clarke is very attractive. And then I noticed that Dameon Clarke is very attractive.
Long story short: Dameon Clarke is very attractive.
He also plays video games in much the same way I do. Choose one game, get obsessed with it, stay up all night playing it, then hate myself for spending so much time on a game when I have other things to do. That piano won’t play itself, Xbox. You jerk. So yeah. Dameon Clarke plays video games, voices an amazing(ly evil) game character, and is very attractive. Le sigh.
