My Dream Zombie Game

I got to ask my friends about what I should write next, so most of them answered that it should be video game related. I’m not sure if I could write any reviews or previews right now, since my PC isn’t here with me. So I figured I should write about the best video game villain for the last 3-4 years, overtaking the Nazis & Aliens.

Zombies.

Not exactly what I had in mind, since we're talking about video games. But sure.

This is about our dream zombie game. Since we don’t really have the power to tell those game developers about how to make the perfect zombie game, let’s just use our powerful imaginations to create the PERFECT zombie video game.

1st: THE STORYLINE

It shouldn’t be the usual, “OH SHIT! ZOMBIES! GO GRAB SOME GUNS!” kind of storyline. Let’s face it, it’s better if the game is realistic. I could understand where the Resident Evil series is going, (SPOILER ALERT) with Wesker becoming a God-like villain but was recently deceased in RE5, and Chris Redfield punching his way through a freakin’ boulder. But if we’re talking about reality, zombies should be stupid, extremely strong, and slow. And the main characters should be plain humans. As for Dead Rising 2, I can understand that the main character has experience in kicking undead asses. But a little more story about how in the hell he got to think of those makeshift weapons would help a lot. We need reality. Especially if we’re talking about killing zombies in a video game.

My dream storyline would include normal human beings that don’t have ANY experience in firing a live weapon. Shooting a gun requires concentration and extreme dexterity. Even a cop misses, so screw that.

2nd: THE GAMEPLAY

It’ll be an open-world game, with NO shops or stores, with the save-point being the current home-base of the characters, or a temporary camp set-up. Resources will be limited. Let’s face it, once an apocalypse happens, productions will be on a screeching halt. This is game will be a survival game. Oh, and 1 bite or scratch, YOU’RE DEAD. I still have a lot in mind, but I think you’ll get bored listening to my ideas.

3rd: REPLAY VALUE

Sure. Left 4 Dead has awesome replay value since it’s made for 4-8 people. Difficulties vary. But for a single-player game to have an awesome replay value, especially if zombies are directly involved, it should have an open ending. Different actions lead to different endings. Just like Dragon Age: Origins.

4th: VIOLENCE

Ha. Zombies without violence? Are you kidding me? I’m pretty sure if this game is set to be made, we’ll have a problem with the ESRB. Realistic gore is what we gamers want.

Last: GRAPHICS

Hmmm. This is where it gets tricky. Sure, pixelated zombies are good. Next-gen zombies, better. HD quality zombies that can make your LED monitor bleed out, BEST. If I were to produce this game, I’d get the studio that made the Arkham Asylum game. Their visuals were the best I’ve seen so far.

I guess that’s it. So if you do have any ideas in mind, remember, I DO HAVE A COMMENT BOX. ūüôā

Here’s the official announcement of the next zombie game on my radar, Dead Island.

DONE.

So Let’s Talk About Cheaters

Yes. I think I’ve tackled this issue before, but this is just because of all the Facebook notes, polls, and all other shit I’ve seen while trolling around online. I will only write about the things I’ve personally experienced, or the the things I know for sure. So. First off, let’s consult our very good friend, thefreedictionary.com.

Cheat  (cht)

v.cheat·ed, cheat·ing, cheats
v.tr.

1. To deceive by trickery; swindle: cheated customers by overcharging them for purchases.
2. To deprive by trickery; defraud: cheated them of their land.
3. To mislead; fool: illusions that cheat the eye.
4. To elude; escape: cheat death.
v.intr.

1. To act dishonestly; practice fraud.
2. To violate rules deliberately, as in a game: was accused of cheating at cards.
3. Informal To be sexually unfaithful: cheat on a spouse.
4. Baseball To position oneself closer to a certain area than is normal or expected: The shortstop cheated toward second base.
n.

1. An act of cheating; a fraud or swindle.
2. One who cheats; a swindler.
3. A computer application, password, or disallowed technique used to advance to a higher skill level in a computer video game.
4. Law Fraudulent acquisition of another’s property.
5. Botany An annual European species of brome grass (Bromus secalinus) widely naturalized in temperate regions.
Cheaters in video games, IMO, are forgivable, IF and ONLY IF it’s not an online game. Cheat codes are part of the game and is made by the developers itself. I’ve cheated in video games before. That was way back when I was still in my early years. My most recent cheat was, when I used codes to unlock jerseys in NBA 2K11. Online game cheating, however, is very UNFORGIVABLE. Yes. Using of third-party programs like bots & hacks. It disgusts me. The developers didn’t make them. Frustrated programmers did. And by frustrated, I mean, they don’t want to work hard for their characters.¬†Bottom-line¬†is, don’t cheat if you’re online.
Next is, cheating death. Okay, seriously, this is an ironically good thing. Ironic, because it’s bad to tease death. It’s good if you survived. But honestly, don’t try again. 3rd time’s the charm, but death believes in that too. Don’t try your luck, ladies & gents.
Lastly, infidelity. I’m gonna be serious with this one, ‘coz I experienced this more than once. Enough for me to write a trilogy of books. Let’s be serious, why the hell do we cheat on our spouses? I’m not sure if I can answer that because I haven’t cheated, yet, to be fair. I got cheated on more than twice.
Thrice.
Oh shit. I lost count.
Then I saw this poll in Facebook. Who is more likely to cheat? Males or females? It was a very biased poll. Most girls answered “males”, while most men answered “females”. What is the deal, guys & girls?
The funny thing about that poll is, even if the cheaters who voted for their gender counterparts, they wouldn’t admit that they cheated. I mean seriously! If you cheated, you shouldn’t be proud, but you should admit that you did it. Even if it’s just one time.
Nothing beats the truth.
I wonder if this guy does cheaters in video games…
DONE.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Seeing that logo gives me goosebumps

Yeah, I really did have a gaming boner when I saw the world premiere in Spike’s Video Game Awards.

I have been waiting for 5th member of the Elder Scrolls franchise to rise from the news feed of my gaming subscriptions online. And it never failed to give justice to all waiting for this 5th installment.

Bethesda Game Studios is already up in my list for Best Game Studio for next year’s VGA. Just for making this game, my gaming life was revived again.

Release date for this game is 11-11-11, and that’s just for the US… I think? But i’ll be in Australia when this game is released so I might have a chance to play this game as soon as 11-11-11 arrives.

Ah yes. Here’s the only gaming video that gave me a metaphorical boner. Enjoy! ūüėÄ

For further information about the game, here’s an article from my favorite online source, Wikipedia.

The 2010 Video Game Awards

YEAH.

That’s the 2010 Video Game Awards. Yes, this post has been long overdue, but to hell with that. This is my first (not really) post about gaming, so shut the f**k up.

First off, let’s start with the host of this shindig. Neil Patrick Harris. Yes. Yeah, I still can’t believe that the dude who played as the legen-fuckin’-dary Barney Stinson, is gay. But I have so much respect for that guy. And much respect for him trying to cheer a bunch of game devs up in that event. They were all quiet, and just a few would get some of his jokes. (I got them, trust me)

Anyway, i’ll just summarize & criticize some of the winners in the awards show. Let’s start with this.

Best Handheld Game :

  • God of War: Ghost of Sparta (winner)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
  • Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
  • Super Scribblenauts

First, I can’t remember playing this GoW game in my PSP (I can only remember playing Chains of Olympus, completing it under 15 hours), so i’m protesting for this category. MGS: PW should’ve won. Not only it kicks ass when played in Multiplayer mode, but the storyline was so dragging, I didn’t do my chores for a week. 2 weeks even. So i don’t know. Maybe I should just play Ghost of Sparta.

Best Shooter:

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops (winner)
  • Battlefield: Bad Company 2
  • BioShock 2
  • Halo: Reach

I had a strong feeling that CoD would win this category but this is just too stacked. I’m torn between the 3 other nominees. BioShock 2 was an innovative shooter game. It was a fun game. Halo: Reach, well, let’s just say the party isn’t complete with Halo.

Game  of the Year

  • Red Dead Redemption (winner)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops
  • God of War III
  • Halo: Reach
  • Mass Effect 2

I had a good feeling that Mass Effect 2 would win, based on what my friend who finished the game relayed to me. He even recommended it to me. It’s just that my fuckin’ DVD ROM isn’t functioning. Ugh. I just wish I could play it. While Red Dead Redemption winning the most awards in this event, I still want to try this game out. Try to see if it’s worthy of all the recognition. I hope it is.

Oh yeah, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim this November 2011, biiiitcheees.

 

DONE.

Online Wars

No. This is not a Facebook app, or a brand new MMOG. This is about fights that occur online. On social networks like, Facebook, MySpace, etc etc. On instant messaging clients like Skype, Windows Live, Yahoo! Messenger, etc etc. On public online forums.  And on online games that has those little chat boxes.

Flaming is such a big part of the world wide web, it’s retarded.

Yeah. Retarded. Everybody (well, not everybody) says that if you argue with someone online, you’re both retarded. Why?

Well. I don’t really know why, but it seems reasonable to say that you shouldn’t step down one or two levels just to argue with someone about “Where’s my gold, you bitch?!” or “Don’t talk to my boyfriend, you whore!” or “Why did you like her post, huh? You wanna have sex with my girl, don’t cha? Fuck you!” (the last one is actually just plain ridiculous).

I’ve been in so many online fights, verbal & uhhh… avatar-al? (Whatever) I can confidently say that I stopped. I stopped playing online games because of all the flaming. But yeah, there’s this¬†occasional¬†dumb-ass¬†that would cross my path online just to piss me off… and I was just playing online poker.

Really. I’m posting this on my blog just because i’m bored and I kind of miss flaming. You can’t call me a veteran in Flame Wars, but hey, I have my fair share of epic battles that consists of insults, racial slurs, & a lot of R-18 stuff.

I miss the smell of napalm on my chat box.

Yeah, kitty is saying Fuck You Flamer.

DONE.
