Adventures in Sonic Unleashed Part 3 of?... Probably 3.

 So, the last Gaming diary post I did was actually one on Warhammer 40K; Space Marine.

I've given Sonic Unleashed a crack between now and then, but I feel that I am at the point where I am just not feeling it.

Why?  Well the bad parts of the levels seem to outweigh the bad parts aaaannnnd the piss-farting around in the hub world to get to the levels is kind of annoying.

YES, it could add to the world building and make the story better.

YES, it probably makes some kind of logical sense and links the levels together.


I juts don't care enough.  I took a break and can't remember what I am supposed to be doing, or where to go, and after spending probably a good 20 minutes slogging through some not too bad, but definitely should be shorter than it was Werehog level, I am feeling that I have run out of good natured Sonic love for this game.

Like seriously, I believe the last level I completed was long and had this annoying platforming section, which if you fell from equaled insta-death. The level in general was too long to get to that section, and that section was definitely too long to be enjoyable.

Like the Bay Transformers movies, sometimes people need to know that less is indeed more.

Optimus Prime; Earthrise leader review YEAH!

Good old Optimus Prime! What a champ, what an icon this red truck is.  Here I have the Earthrise version of Optimus, which I rather put off getting for some reason.  I heard that it was actually a pretty good figure with a rather nice transformation, but for whatever reason, I was never deeply compelled to hunt one down like I have with many, many other figures.

Were my initial feelings correct?  Or had I made a huge mistake and the part of my life without this toy in my possession was a huge waste of never to be claimed again biological energy?

WaaaAAAaaargh! Space Marine! Part 2 of 2

 Well, whaddya know.

After posting this post, I sat down and managed to knock the game off.  I did have some trouble with the final boss fight.  Really there are only two boss fights in the whole game.  Both times has you facing off against hordes of plebs rather than the boss.

WaaaAAAaaargh! Space Marine!

 A long long time ago, I found the demo for this game and played it for a bit.  It used a bit with a jump pack and was pretty fun.  I've always wanted to give it a crack for reals and now I have.

What's it like?

Legacy Breakdown; A review


Here we are ladies and gentlethings, the last of the Stunticons has arrived!  Not only that, it is my favourite character!  Oh boy oh boy, the Legacy Stunticons have been pretty good so far and gotten some nice homage action going, I sure do hope they gave my beloved Breakdown the respect he deserves!  I mean, the vehicle modes are all pretty different, while I can easily accept using the same bas transformation schematic, surely, surely they wouldn't just use a repaint and call it a day right?
