Herlock- Red Steel 2 Review

Posted in Herlock's Game Reviews, Herlock's Writings with tags , , , , on April 7, 2010 by herlock3rd

Ubisoft has decided to take a break from making shovelware and decided it’s about time they made an actual game that was good……and doesn’t suck. I want to make this clear that I have not played the first Red Steel game (mostly because everyone I know forcefully stops me from doing so) but, from what I hear this is suppose to be a completely different game so with out further stalling for time……..

Shhh! don’t tell no one but, this is actually a good game…….wait no! tell everyone! this is an awesome game and one of the only times I enjoy playing my Wii what with all the games about Fashion, Ponies, and all those girls games that fly off the shelf because parents are stupid and so are companies who think only thing girls should play is games about cooking why they just make a game about being a complete slave to your husband and be an obedient wife who never talks back……..

It is so fun talking to people about this game and I really can’t wait until some DLC arrives because I have pretty much finished this and I still want to play more. I just finished playing a huge session trying to get some trophies (getting AAA on all missions will be a chore and finishing the last one at all will be a heartfelt trial).

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.
