FATAL ATTRACTION. IN YOUR GAME SYSTEM.

10 Mar

Remember Heavy Rain? I didn’t play it, but from what I heard, it was a pretty dramatic game. There was some romance involved, am I right?

There aren’t too many games for the XBOX or the PS3 focusing their spotlight on romance, in-game, but “Catherine” dares to change this. You do not make your characters fall in love or have seks. Rather, you are trying to escape from your nightmares because you HAD AN AFFAIR AND NOW YOUR MISTAKE WON’T LEAVE YOU ALONE!

AKA: FATAL ATTRACTION MEETS THE CELL —  Choose your own adventure-style.

I am digging the style of the graphics–it is just me or does Vincent (the protagonist) remind you a LITTLE bit of Spike Spiegel? Whenever I see blonde pigtails I think Sailormoon. So we’ve got Spike Spiegel and slutty Usagi-chan in this raunchy video game.

But seriously, you play as Vincent, who meets the mysterious Catherine at a bar one night and perhaps has a little too much fun with her, despite the fact he has a long-term girlfriend, Katherine, to go home to. He is later plagued by nightmares in which his life is constantly at stake, and must “survive” each nightmare, as the lines between reality and the dreamworld blur. Not only do you have to battle and solve puzzles during the nightmares, you must eventually choose between Catherine and Katherine. Oh, and did I mention that random young men have been dying, while sleeping? Suddenly, Dan Gallagher’s life doesn’t seem so difficult.

The game was recently released in Japan (February 2011) and is slated for its North American release on July 26, 2011.

GAME ON

18 Feb

This past week has been a pretty important for console gamers everywhere–

1) Marvel vs. Capcom 3 released February 15, which I still have not gotten my anxious fingers on yet, but with a hyper combo like Deadpool’s I am simply wetting my pants sitting here typing and thinking about it. Seriously, what a great mishmash of characters this time around. (And if you’ve been reading this blog since our conception last August, you may remember MegaWoman raved about X-23’s appearance in the game)

(Hell yeah he just beat you down with his life bar and health bar)

2) Dead Island was announced the very next day (Feb. 16), which even prompted my non-video-gaming friends to send me the trailer, oohing and aahing. I mean it, 5 people sent me the trailer in one day. Either I resemble a zombie in the day-to-day or they associate me with zombie games or… T_T Regardless of what reasoning they harbored in their minds as they posted and forward the video to me in Facebook and Gmail, the trailer definitely has a cinematic (when I say cinematic I mean there’s a tinge of emotion) feel, and though I think I will check out the game when it comes out, I don’t know if I want to delve into yet ANOTHER zombie venture. Perhaps it’s because I currently feel like a zombie and have no desire for anything zombie-related. Temporary bias.

Also, any blog post titled “Game on”, in actual reference to games, needs to be followed by That “The Guild” video, as below. You can thank/hate me later when you find yourself humming this song until 5pm.
