We Are 1 Year Old!

This time one year ago, Cheesecake and I were probably playing Resident Evil 5 or Gran Turismo or something, and we came up with the crazy idea of starting a blog.  It was a slow start, but we got going soon there after.  Sometime down the line I convinced my good friend NekkeSnake to join us in our crusade in giving you useless information.  12 months later we have managed to attract 114 followers and 7,350 views, generate 479 posts, and give you guys information that you can probably live with out.

We still are are trying to figure out what we really need to post up on a normal basis, and, yeah, we slowed a lot in the last month or 2, but, it is the summer, and this is the summer doldrums.  We will provide you with more content, as I always say, and we do have some stuff in the works, but we just cannot seem to find the time to wrap things up.

Anyway, we thank everyone who has come and visited, and to those that follow us, and hopefully, there will be more in our second year.

On behalf of the Justwroteablog crew, we thank you all!

A First Impression of: Resident Evil 6. Excited to let all hell break loose.

I think that first phrase just sums in all up.

The Big Cheese and I have been wasting away our weekends playing ridiculously fun yet extremely frustrating video games on our PS3’s.

One of our favorite games of the past year or so has been Resident Evil 5. We have literally played that game to death. But that didn’t stifle our fun. We kept playing it up until The Big Cheese broke his arm (and that’s a story for another day).

After the summer long hiatus and an uneventful waiting period, it finally released. Resident Evil 6.

Upon first glance, the third-person shooter doesn’t seem all that different from the older RE games. HOWEVER. Before actually jumping into the full game experience, Capcom was generous enough to throw in a mandatory tutorial. This 20-30 minute long prelude to the actual campaign starts with Leon Kennedy and Helena Harper. You play as Leon, learning the controls and mannerisms of the game.

I just have to say. The graphics? Beautiful. The game actually tells you to put the brightness down as low as possible (so that a grey six on the screen is barely visible). It really looks like a movie. The graphics are a sight to behold (even on my standard-def tube TV box), but of course, as any gamer should know, graphics aren’t everything. The sound is well done, too, by the way. Very detailed and crisp.

The controls are very different from the standard shooter, and will most likely be a difficult adjustment for a person that has solely been playing  Call of Duty lately, such as I.

You can play through the campaign as one of three characters, each with a different story line: Chris Redfield, Jake Muller, and the aforementioned Leon S. Kennedy.

I’m really hoping for a great experience with this game, as chilling as it may be.

Many storylines= much fun.
