Dead Space 2 Launch Trailer

A few weeks ago I posted a story trailer of this game. Now Dead Space 2, developed by Visceral Games, is about to be released. I really like this trailer, I don’t know if it’s because of the music or what. It really fits in this video. The song, played in this trailer, is Bullet With Butterfly Wings by The Smashing Pumpkins. Enjoy.

Back to the Future: The Game – Episode I – PC

Today, I played the first episode of the Back to the Future series. What happened was: I started the game, played it for 2h, finished it and closed the game. Easy as that. Very-very short game. I really started to like it. Got stuck only in one spot where I had to test every option to proceed and that was for only 15min or so. It started off really great and I enjoyed the “movie” feeling in it.

Wake up, Marty

The voices were all from the real characters so that felt genuine. I saw the movies long time ago and I couldn’t catch up with some of the characters in the game or the references. So the game achieved one thing – I must watch the movies again. The puzzles weren’t very hard and there was a nice hint system to help you. Visuals were cartoonish, so they can’t be bad. Controlling Marty didn’t felt really good, maybe they’ll fix it in the next episode. You had two choices to control him; mouse or arrow keys, and they both felt a little bit uncontrollable. It felt like a fun game to play when you want to relax, but when you’re expecting a long and meaningful first episode you might disappoint. But I must say, the story wasn’t that bad, it just wasn’t deep.

Nice visuals
Great voice acting
Brings back memories
Funny time killer

Bad controls
Can’t compare with other full games

Score 6,9

My game – story part 1

I decided to start writing my own story. I made no decisions what it will be about. I just opened Word and started writing. So here is the first part of my story.


Scene 1

Characters : Teddy, Pete, Les
Three men are sitting in comfortable looking chairs. The only source of light comes out of a fireplace which is in front of them. The room looks unfurnished, only things in there are those three chairs, a fireplace and a small table which has an opened envelope on it. The first guy, who looks like he has eaten too much candy in his early days, touches his bald head and says nervously:

TEDDY: “You fucked up, you fucked up badly, Tommy’s never coming back. I should’ve…“

He was interrupted by a second guy, who is a lot thinner, a little bit older looking, but still in his thirties, who says:

PETE: “Teddy, you can’t be sure of that. Who wrote us this letter? We don’t know if this is true or not, right now we have to stay low. “

Teddy yelled back at him:

TEDDY: „We have to stay low? This is your fault, Pete, Tommy believed in you, you made him go. You and your stupid ideas which lead to nothing, Tommy is dead you know? DEAD! “

Pete answered calmly:

PETE: “How can you be so sure of that? Besides, I’m the reason why you guys are both alive, I made us rich, I gave you a reason to live.“

The third guy, who looks a little bit younger than Teddy, is a handsome looking and the most serious of them three. He said in a very clear voice:

LES: “Guys, the things you’re talking about make no difference, what I’m most concerned about is how the hell did they know where we were, how did they know where to send this letter, our last hideout was in a perfect spot, a lot better than this one.“

He knew that one of them gave their hideout location away, but who? Teddy answered quickly:

TEDDY: “Les, are you stupid or what? I’m sure they saw Pete smoking outside, he goes there like in every god damn five minutes. “

Pete smiled and said:

PETE: “Which reminds me, I have to go outside for a smoke, I’ll be right back.“

Pete walks out of the room and leaves Les and Teddy alone sitting in their chairs warming themselves in front of the fireplace. Teddy thinks about Tommy and the letter, something strange comes into his mind.

TEDDY: „Les, do you find that last sentence odd as well? “


Scene 2:
Tommy wakes up in a bed, his head hurts as hell and he wants to drink some water. He opens his eyes and sees a woman looking at him. She says:

WOMAN: “Tommy, Tommy, Tommy. “

Mafia 2 – PC

The game with so much potential. The game I was really looking forward to. The game I thought would be the best game, just failed. They promised us great story, living city, amazing graphics and so on. The graphics were great, but not amazing, maybe if they had released it 3 years before, maybe then the graphics would have been amazing. The story was a disappointment, maybe it was because the story writer, Daniel Vavra, left the company and the guys who now had to polish the story, screwed it up, badly. It just had too many holes in it and you never felt like you were the main character, Vito. The good thing is that you really felt like you were in the old times. Okay, the city felt alive and all, but that just isn’t enough. All the gas station guys looked the same and that was just funny. In one mission you had to go through like 5-6 gas stations and even then they couldn’t make the gas station guys look different. But maybe in Empire Bay, the gas stations were really run by clones, I don’t know.People at 2k Czech had lots and lots of time to make Mafia 2 and I don’t understand why they didn’t use that time to make the game perfect as it should have been.

Want to blow it up? No can do

The soundtrack was really great and I enjoyed driving around the city listening to the radio. Many people say that driving around in Mafia 2 was the worst thing about the game, but I don’t find that annoying. I had my fun playing the game, but it just wasn’t IT. I really loved Mafia 1, the game was different, it had a story, it was interesting to play. Mafia 1 is way better than Mafia 2 and that’s true. I have no idea why they cut off the melee weapons from the game, it’s like having a radio in a car, but not listening to music.

You want to be him

I never had a feeling like I was a mafia guy, I felt like an ordinary guy who just makes money using the illegal way. The city was quite small and you had no things to do in there. When I first saw that huge baseball stadium, I instantly thought that some mission must occur inside that stadium, but no, it was just there to see, nothing else. The main character, Vito, was a just a killer with no emotions. Joe, his best buddy, was a lucky drunk. The funny thing is that I felt like Joe was more appropriate main character, because he had more character in him, he was an interesting guy not like boring Vito. I never felt like I was in control of the story or whether can affect the story somehow, it was just too linear. They first said that they have three different endings and I would have liked that, now they only had one ending which was quite disappointing for me to be honest. Too many loose ends. Although I feel like I’m cheated with Mafia 2, I really hope that they make Mafia 3 and they learn from their mistakes.

Holes in the story

NBA 2K11 – Xbox360

Can you handle it?


First basketball game on my Xbox.  I’ve played 2k10 on my PC and as far as i can tell – 2k11 on xbox is a lot better. The graphics look neater, the game sucks you more in and you don’t get so annoyed anymore due to stupid passes and so on. I’ve played “My player” the most and i really like it. You have different goals every game to achieve and it makes your game better. Thanks to all these drills you have while using “My player” mode your overall playing skill also gets better because you learn new things and learn how to use them. The commentary gets repetitive and the soundtrack aswell. The  good thing about the soundtrack is that even if you don’t listen to that kind of music it doesn’t annoy you because you have so many other things to think about while playing. The controls are good, but while doing the slam dunk competition, the controls are hard to learn. Also the 3-point contest is easy. Online multiplayer works and is pretty good. You can earn extra skill points for your player in “My player” mode if you play online against another person. After winning the playoffs in “My player” mode, the visit to the White House was awesome, but there wasn’t much of a celebration after winning the title.  Overall you just can’t hate the game if you nail a buzzerbeater or perform an amazing dunk. I really haven’t used the retro things in the game so i can’t tell more about that.


A lot to do



Different modes

Slam dunk competition was a let-down

You feel nothing when you win the title

Repetitive commentary

Losing the game

Score  7,5
