So, I'm not a hard core gamer. I have a PS2 and I don't want a PS3 right now. I don't need Blue-Ray, or a DVD in my game system...The Wii is just right. I've never stood in long lines for systems...but at 4:30 I'm writing this counting down until the nearest Target opens and I stand in the freezing cold just to get a Wii.
I spent ALL DAY deciding on a game to accompany my new system. My choice Red Steel. WHY?
Well, we already know the graphics aren't perfect but if I wanted realism visually I'd buy a PS3. I want the ability to bust a cap in, and slice the skin off some punk without catching a case. Red Steel will deliver. Will it have glitches? I'm sure, but so did path of neo and I love that game to death!
What has me really excited, is the possibilities. Imagine if- at any time microsoft or sony decided to MERGE with ninetendo- providing superior graphix and new gen controls! This is the next level of gaming taking the arcade home- and with online, multi-player options soon the wii is the way to go.
The horrible reviews Red Steel received threw me aback at first- but it seems like people are holding this game to way to high standards. It probably plays like a good bond game- or timesplitters and honestly I've had hours of fun with both.
As dawn quickly approaches, I will strap into my wi-mote, plug in my nunchaku and tell you a real review tonight. Until then-
Boku-wa Sir out!
