Alice: Madness Returns, LA Noire and Catherine

I know that Alice has got to be one of the most original mind blowing games I have ever played. It is psychically dark, intense, and fun simultaneously, It is fresh. Now while I enjoy  LA Noire,  not dark intense and barely captures the imagination with new ideas. It’s slow and not really worthy of the Rockstar name. Now, I may just be upset about the free T-shirt they promised me, but although the story telling technique is new and innovative, it kind of sucks. Red Dead Redemption  was a much better game as every  GTA since III,   As was Bully.   In fact, LA Noire  is the only  Rockstar game in fifteen years not to knock me completely off my feet. Back to Alice, I didn’t play the first one because it was PC and I didn’t have one ’til recently. I love this Alice. I have never seen a game so twisted. No Resident Evil(though three was good), Silent Hill, Dead Space  horror game can compare to twisted Alice. In conclusion, I have a very limited video game budget. I got these games because of their promised innovation. I am really excited about Catherine because it’s supposed to be a psycho sexual thriller, which I’ve never seen in a video game. After that, Back to  ICO, and Saint’s Row: The Third

I can’t help it!?!

Does anyone else check their order status when they order something from Amazon? I do it like three times a day until my order arrives. I do it even when I pre-order something and it doesn’t come out for another ten days and I’m too cheap to get anything but the super saver shipping. I have a serious obsessive compulsive thing going on here… I may need psychiatric help (more psychiatric help)…Oh dear, I feel that I must go check again and Alice: Madness Returns doesn’t come out until June 14th. What is the deal. I did order it early enough to get it for $45. The price has gone up to $59.99. That was awesome. Inever get the the better deal on things . I did order Catherine for $57 and now it’s $60 but that doesn’t feel like quite the savings….I’m off to Amazon.

Bayonetta

I have just finished Bayonetta. It is an awesome game. I never play new games because they cost so much but if I was to give a review for Bayonetta, It would be a five thumbs up game. I seriously enjoyed the cut scenes and the full on action throughout the game. It was not a game so difficult that no one could finish it and it was reasonably good game play. The camera action was a little slow but that was my only complaint. Seriously Good Game. In it, you’re a witch, killing angels. Lines between good and evil were blurred and the game made an initially irritating title character into someone you could sympathize with. You get consistent cartoon sideboob and for me that’s a plus. I like hot, sexy cartoons….so sue me. I loved this game.  Next, I will take on LA NOIRE!. I have Alice and Catherine on pre order. I have never pre-ordered a game before. This is so cool.
