I finally got to play Ridge Racer 6. After I played this game, I found that the game is almost like RR7. This game has same gameplay from the fifth game, but with different controls. RR7 is little bit different than this game. This game isn’t on the other PlayStation consoles. This one is only on the XBOX 360. This one was the XBOX 360 launch titles that they released when the XBOX 360 first came out. The graphics in this game looks more like a PS2 game instead of 360 game. Great details on the cars but not the game itself. It looks blurry and looks more like Gran Turismo 4 graphics. I don’t why NAMCO made the graphics more like a PS2 game. Did they were rushing or in a hurry to release the game. The gameplay is good but in away. The gameplay runs more like RR5 but with nitros.

BioShock: Infinite was a great game that I enjoyed. This game set in the sky instead of under the sea. The graphics and gameplay have been improved alot. The graphics looks more detailed and has brighter colors on the PC. When you play the PC, it looks like a PS4 game. I had been playing the console version, and it looks muddy and low res. The gameplay on the other is fantastic.

I like the gameplay better than anything else. It sucks that you have only two weapons instead of more. In the first Bioshock game, you have more weapons to choose from. I don’t understand why the developers want us to have two weapons instead of more. The story in this game is confusing. You have to find a young girl named Elizabeth in Columbia. Elizabeth has the powers to open other worlds or different time periods (She’s a TARDIS!). Columbia is where you in this game. In Columbia, there are a bunch of racist Donald Trumps. When I got in Columbia, there was a white man who wanted to throw a baseball at a black woman. So, I threw it at the white man and got arrested. So, I fight back.

European Mystery: Flowers of Death Collector’s Edition

European Mystery: Flowers of Death was the first in this series by Blam! Games that I have tried. While it has that historic feel and 18th century look, the voice acting was very North American. If it were not for the truly Dutch architecture of the time period, one would not know that this game had a historical setting. As to the mystery itself, we are a detective investigating a strange phenomenon of a town that has been taken over by what seems to be magically enhanced poisonous plants, mostly flowers and flowering vines.

We have a few allies in the town. A botanist who gave the town warning of what was to come, but he really has no idea of the shady dealings and corruption done by the banker with certain merchants and some of the staff in the police department (no big surprise there!). What the botanist has is a talent for finding things out through his science, and using his formulas and your keen senses, you will find the dirty low down on why the plants have gone crazy.

Perfect Dark Zero is like Lara Croft meets James Bond, but more like a Sci-Fi story. I had played this one before when the XBOX 360 first came out. There were alot of bugs & glitches in this, but Rare had already fixed that problem. The game takes places in the year 2020. So, it is before the first game. This is game shows how Joanna became a bounty hunter or spy or whatever. The story in this game is not all that great. I had hard time understanding it, but the story is really boring. The multi-player is impressive. It brings backs the days when me and my friends were playing Halo like crazy on the original Xbox and this game is like it, but Halo is still better. You can have a friend with you on story mode as well.

When I first saw this seafaring adventure game based on Classical Greek lore, I thought it would be cool to give it a try. You chose from different heroes, and build up a fleet of ships, buying and selling goods in the agoras at different ports in the Aegean Sea, and even do a little piracy. You buy and sell ships, like triremes and other battle and cargo ships from the time. There are also quests, but after a time, it was hard to find out where the quests were supposed to be.
