Games

  • Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time[the most important of the bunch]

All of these updates have put me in a happy mood. It seems that SONY will soon be advancing onto XBOX 360 with their downloads because in less than a week more content will be coming for the US and PAL regions.

My Experiences:

Of all this new content available I’ve only downloaded two items, both for the 360. I downloaded Alien Hominid HD, and the GRAW 2 Multiplayer demo. Both are very fun. i like the Alien Hominid because I used to play it on teh internets. I decided to get it on Live for the gamer score points and the achievements. I’ll do anything for more achievements. DAMN BERSERKER!!!12 .

Alien Hominid will run you 800 Microsoft Points but if you are into great side-scrollers you will not even care. The bosses are fun and when you beat them you feel a sense of accomplishment. Stay tuned for a review.

GRAW 2 multiplayer is something I have tried once and only once. The moment I logged on I was killed about 5 times because the damn psychopaths on Live won’t let me learn the maps. It is very detailed from what I’ve seen and the controls are great but I need to play with different people. The Single Player Campaign demo[download separately] is great, so I think I’ll practice on that for a while.

Well that’s it for now. If you have had any experiences on this weeks update in the next generation tell us below in your comment.
