I’ve decided to wait until I’m deeper into Mass Effect 2 to comment on it – but my early impressions are very good, I’m enjoying my playthrough. Today I am going to talk instead about another recent Bioware game – Dragon Age: Origins. This came came out near the end of 2009 as a multiplatform title. My opinions on it are based on the 360 version. I’ve heard that graphically the PS3 version looks sharper, but the 360 is less prone to glitches and runs at a faster framerate.
Dragon Age: Origins is a fantasy RPG, in which players are tasked with destroying a horde of Darkspawn and defeat the Archdemon about to overwhelm the Kingdom of Ferelden.
There are some good looking games coming out this year for the Xbox 360 and the Wii. Not an exhaustive list, by any means, but these games are the ones sparking my interest at the moment. Here are some of the ones I’m excited for..
I have to confess it’s been a long time since I so thoroughly enjoyed a video game. Thanks Dave for getting me a copy of the new Super Mario Bros. Wii this Christmas.
For those who haven’t tried it, the new Mario Bros. Wii is classic Mario at its best; 2D running, jumping and stomping without all the camera angles we’ve had to endure in the latest games. No pretentious storyline with long cut scenes, just eight worlds of side scrolling fun (nine, if you can find all the goodies). I honestly felt like I was playing through a game that was built from the best elements of Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World.
