Dead Island is Dead Hard and here why

Dead Island has been out for a few weeks now and I am still really enjoying it, even if I am now playing Arkham City, but despite having tons of fun bashing zombies to bits on the island of Banoi I have more than a few moments where I wanted to pull out my hair or throw the controller against the wall. In short the game is difficult for me as I am playing in single player mode, my Xbox 360 is not currently on-line so I am alone in my adventure………BIG MISTAKE. I am fully aware that this game has 4-player coop but my god it defiantly shows in the single player campaign. For instance in the first area of the game I was doing rather well until out of nowhere I was suddenly attacked by about 7 zombies within a very cramped location……the result being my first death, now to be honest being swarmed is something I enjoy as its something of challenge BUT there is one major problem I have with this game. THE ZOMBIES CAN RUN RIGHT THROUGH YOU. I have been playing this game since release and despite the few bad reviews I’ve found little to complain about but when I’m faced with about 6 zombies and one runs right through the character the fight almost becomes impossible as your turning around to deal with the confusion. The other day I loaded the game up and in a two-hour session I must have died at least 7 times due to this bug, and while it inst that noticeable at first just wait till you meet the buggers who run at you Left 4 Dead style.

In Short single player campaign is possible and enjoyable but Id defiantly like to try out coop in the future

My First Achievement in Duke Nuke Forever 0.o

I have no idea how I knew about this, I think Rooster Teeth might have done a video on it but I am not certain. Anyway 5 minutes into the game and I get this:

Turd Burglar 10 
Find and steal a piece of poo
For those interested when you start the game your in a toilet area so if you search one of the toilets……..inside is a turd which you can actually pick up and throw. I know Duke Nukem is meant to be an immature game but really this is counted as an achievement.

Shadow of the Damned Achievement Rant!

last week I completed Shadow of the damned (to be reviewed soon) and like any other game it gave me an Achievement for completing the game on normal difficulty BUT the difficulty achievements do not stack so not only does the game expect me to complete the game a second time on hard, it also expects me to go back and complete the game on easy as well. suffice to say this is a bit annoying, sure the game was good but once was enough, even completing it on hard is something I don’t plan anytime soon as replay value doesn’t seem a huge factor in this game…..suffice to say it may soon be traded in towards something like Batman Arkaham City or Saints Row the Third

Ms Splosion Man Review

In 2009 Twisted Pixel released Splosion Man onto the Xbox Live Arcade , the game gained almost instant popularity due to its mix of simplistic controls, challenging levels and  original humour. Now two years later fans have been treated with the awaited sequel entitled Ms Splosion man which bares the obvious similarities to its predecessor while offering up so many new additions that it manages to feel like a completely new experience, having recently completed the single player mode I can easily state that Ms Splosion Man far surpasses the first game while still keeping a great deal of its original charm.
