Modern Warfare 2

Today I'm going to talk about Modern Warfare 2. It can be played on PC, 360, and Playstation 2. Modern Warfare is a present day first person shooter. The basic story line of this is America pisses Russia off so they invade and you are sent around on missions to stop them. Its a pretty short story line, it's only a few hours long. Besides the story line there are 2 other options. The first option is playing online multi-player which i enjoy. You can link up with friend if they play on the same platform as you and kill shit together. BUT play with people muted because listening to a 10 year old kid try to trash talk about crap that you can't understand is like stabbing yourself in the ear with a rusty nail. So until they figure out a way to punch people through the internet i would recommend playing with everyone muted. The other option is Special-op missions where you can link up with a friend or play alone. There are specific tasks that you are ordered to do depending on what mission you choose. Such as defend a rooftop with you sniper rifle or work you way across a bridge fighting threw waves of enemies. All in all its a Great game though it has a very short story mode the special-op missions and the online play more then make up for it. This is a definite buy if you are into first person shooters.

What can i say about Demigod. Demigod is a very interesting sort of real time strategy with a rpg twists to it. This game is basically "Dota" for fans of the Warcraft 3 custom map. Demigod has a vast array of "demigods" to choice from. The story line to this game is that you have to fight all these other demigods on different fields of batter to rise up and become a god. The way you do this is each map you have a main base that you can buy upgrades for you minions that spawn out of portals you capture and various other upgrades. There are also shops that you can buy weapons and equipment for you Demigod as you level up. All in all the story line is very very short but i found it entertaining. The big part of this is playing over the internet of over a lan line. On the way home from buying this I called over a few friends and we all hooked up our computers and played against each other and before we knew it the sun was coming up. If you were a fan of Dota you should get this game. Well worth the money.

Mass Effect

The first game I'm going to talk about is Mass Effect. Yes it isn't a brand new game, but it is sitting in front of me and I really enjoyed playing it. Mass Effect is a first person shooting RPG (Role Playing Game) in which you play a character named Shepard in the distant future. You are able to completely customize Shepard. Everything from gender, skin color, scars, class and even your back story. The basic story is you are out to save the galaxy from a ancient race out to wipe out all living life things. In your travels you come across 6 companions that you convince to join your team. Throughout the story you will have to build your relationship with them to see if they will live or die. All in all Mass Effect was a very good game. I myself have played it through countless times. Its a great way to spend anywhere between 1 day to a week. Depending on how many side quests you do. This is a must buy game.
