…as I always do, just like Dudley (aka, Mr. Diddles).
F.E.A.R. (PS3) – A few months ago I went back through the reviews for this game because at the time it came out in 2007 I got the impression it was a terrible port, but actually reading the reviews showed me that it is a good port just not the best one. Considering I don’t have an X360 and that I found it for cheap, I think I can live with that.
Quake III Revolution (PS2) – Yet another old PC shooter I can finally play again! I played some deathmatches with bots and it is a very good port of Quake III especially considering it was released on a console in 2001. The default controls are garbage as are all of them except the ones denoted as “dexterous.” The only seemingly weird thing about this control scheme is that the jump button is L1, but it actually works very well since Quake III is so fast paced you really don’t want to have to take your thumb off of the right stick in order to jump. All of the maps I played are exact replicas of ones from the PC version which is nice and the graphics are good and everything sounds as it should. Q3R is much better than I expected it to be!
Elemental Gearbolt (PS1) – Found this one recently for only about 1/4th the cost that it normally goes for so yay for that! 😀 This game is an interesting light gun game with a good deal of RPG elements tossed in. I haven’t played much yet because I still need a bigger CRT display for my light gun games because 13″ just doesn’t cut it.
Super Street Fighter IV (PS3) – This purchase will come as absolutely no surprise to anyone who knows me. Picked it up on Friday and have been playing it quite a bit since then and I will definitely continue to do so. For anyone like me who already had SFIV from last year, this is simply a lot more SFIV, but that’s a very good thing especially since it includes 10 new characters and many new modes. I actually like a lot of the new entries in this one and I’m glad my favorite Street Fighter Alpha character, Guy, is an extremely good fighter in this game! Cody, Juri, and T. Hawk are the other newcomers I like quite a bit. My last three are the improved Vega and Rose and Ryu is still very solid. If you like yourself some punching fools’ faces SSFIV is a no-brainer!
