Kezla News: Christmas Gaming

And so to an obligatory “What I got for Christmas” post, seems a distant memory now doesn’t it. Thought I would include some initial impressions of the games, and appeal to you all as to how I can most wisely spend my £20 store credit.

Skyrim: This is one huge game, and one that I feel I can truly make my own in terms of the experiences and gameplay, but it’s not without its bugs.  The first 30 minutes do not do the game justice at all, so stick with it.  Look out for more on Skyrim in coming weeks.

Uncharted 3: Having spent most of my time in Skyrim, I confess to only having played the first 4 chapters at this point, but I love what I have seen and played so far, the same graphical wow factor as Uncharted 2, but very much improved melee combat mechanics, I am impressed with the technical improvements to the series.

Time Crisis: A selection box of games in one package! Time Crisis Rising Storm and TC4, as well as DeadStorm Pirates. The story mode in Time Crisis 4 is confusing and slightly ridiculous plot wise, but arcade mode more than makes up for it, as does the addition of the other 2 games adding different environments, but more of the same fast paced shooting fun, the gun attachment for Playstation Move is impressively accurate and responsive, just be sure to calibrate before you begin.

So that’s my initial impressions of my festive goodies, what did you get and what are your thoughts on it so far? As always post a comment, or tweet me @kezla.
