Herlock- Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition Review(bonus Vergil mode review)

Posted in Herlock's Game Reviews, Herlock's Writings with tags , , , , on February 27, 2010 by herlock3rd

I like to mix it up around here, so when I started Playing DMC3 back when it came out I thought it was a pretty ok game. It played much faster than DMC2 and it took place before it (Capcom’s way of retconning stuff). However, when I beat it I just kinda forgot about it and never even remembered what I played.

Herlock- Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks Review

I remember way back in the day when MK was the shit and everyone wanted to play it however, newer games in the series started to get really lame and it wasn’t until I made a crazy impulse purchase to find out that the MK series had a little life left in it.

Herlock’s Hardware- Hori Gamecube pad

Posted in Herlock's Hardware, Herlock's Writings with tags , , , , , on February 23, 2010 by herlock3rd

Back in the day when I went to Game Stores regularly, I would find some pretty dope shit lying around however, I lucked out when I purchased the Hori game cube pad for 15 bucks only to find out it goes for 4 times that online.

The Hori Gamecube pad is one of my most favorite controllers of all time I used this sucker for anything I could (Resident Evil, both Megaman anniversaries and Soul Calibur II) and yes it looks like a SNES controller but, you could use it for more than just old games. This was the pad to get when I could find a stick for the cube to play SC II so I found one of these bad boys and I got lucky because as far as I know they are only sold in Japan and very hard to come by even over there. The main draw for me was the huge D-Pad, perfect for fighters and any game where a D-Pad would be much nicer. If you are willing to spend the money (A LOT OF MONEY) I highly recommend picking this thing especially if you’re into fighters.

Ugh, the damn 360 is on the fritz again!

Posted in Herlock is upset, Herlock's Writings on February 22, 2010 by herlock3rd

Well, my 360 is dead again and this time it’s a video problem no, not the E74 error it just won’t show any video. Come on Microsoft, fix your shit my PS2 is still alive and kickin’ and that thing is almost a decade old and because of this bullshit all non-online multiplayer games shall be purchased on the PS3 (with the exception of fighters because I have friends who use PS3 pads). See what you did Microsoft, you turned me into a Sony Fanboy but, I have to go now and send my dead Xbox back to you guys since most of my games are on there (because you guys somehow get better versions of the multi-platform games which I find astounding consider the 360 is built like shit).
