On the list of games that I’ve ever been extremely hyped about, the original 2011 Homefront was near the top. Advertised as portraying a desolate United States, in which guerrilla warfare would be the only viable method to fight back against the unified Korean force, I was looking forward to seeing how a game of that nature would play. After all, it’s not everyday that we see a first-person-shooter release that portrays the U.S. as the underdog force (this was of course also long before CoD: Ghosts came about).
I literally had just finished up the second season of House of Cards too.
Kevin Spacey is going to star in the 2014 Call of Duty title, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and by the looks of it, he’s probably going to be the bad guy. Which is ok by me, because if House of Cards has proven anything, it is that Kevin Spacey can be as evil of a bad guy as he wants, and I’ll probably still be rooting for him. The same can be said for the movie, “21,” which is probably one of my favorite, under-appreciated films.
Being a gamer on a budget, I’m always keeping my eyes out for the best deals I can get. Sure, I like to try and buy games new as often as possible to really support the developers, but realistically it isn’t always the most affordable thing to do; being a full-time student that isn’t currently working will do that to you. That’s why when it comes to the service that gives me the best bang for my buck, PlayStation Plus is unrivaled.
It has been a long journey through the BioShock storyline. We’ve been taken to the depths of the ocean, in the failed Utopian city of Rapture, to the heights of the clouds, in the deceptive paradise of Columbia, and all the way back down again. All along the way, the journey has been filled with a sense of uncertainty of what was to come next, and enough twists and turns to scramble your mind. It is fitting then, that Burial at Sea Episode Two brings a close to not only Infinite’s story, but the entirety of Rapture’s tale as well. If this is indeed the end of BioShock’s road, or at least the end of Irrational’s part in it, then Burial at Sea sent it out with a bang.
I used to play multiplayer games all of the time. Four-player split-screen sessions of Goldeneye 007 and Mario Kart, co-op sessions of Star Wars: Battlefront, etc, etc. This continued onto the PC around 2003 with the release of the original Call of Duty, which I probably dropped hundreds of hours into.
