Wolverine finally beat

x-men-origins-wolverineAbout 2 months ago I downloaded the demo of Wolverine on my PS3, and loved it !, However with not seeing the film, I wasn’t willing to buy the full game in case of spoilers.

About a month ago, I finally got my butt into gear and and went to the cinema, and say Wolverine…which was an ok film.

About 3 weeks ago, I was in my local Tesco’s and noticed that it was available on the Xbox 360 for £25 !…Bargain. Luckily I have both consoles so bought it.

How is it ?…It’s fantastic !, I read many reviews, and it averages rating was around 7/10, but I personally think it’s worth more that this. The game play is very much like God of War, it’s a good hack and slash game, and really action packed, with some really gruesome cut scenes.

I did get annoyed by a few things, there were 2 points in the game that stand out where they were stupid timed jumpy bit, whereby if you didn’t time it perfectly, you ended up either falling to your death, and then have to wait around 30 seconds for the save game to load, or having to start the chain of events again, so the little platforms came out so you could then get to the beginning, and jump across them again…very frustrating.

The combat in the game was awesome, very fast paced, and as you go through the game and pick up and slot power-up, it only gets better.

The end of game boss annoyed me, in total took me 28 attempts at killing him, and not due to the fact that I’m bad at the game, it’s due to the fact that the 3rd stage of killing him, he fires the red laser at you, which destroys the ground beneath you, which then makes you fall to you death. The majority of the time you couldn’t jump out of the way in time, so had no choice but to die, so you have to load your previous save game which starts at the beginning of the 2nd stage, which then takes you 5/10 minutes of battle to get back to stage 3 again, only to have the ground blow from under me, and have to load the checkpoint again.

I feel I’ve been quite negative above, but the rest of the game more than makes up for it, it took me around 14 hours to beat the game of which I was only annoyed for around 1 hour of this, so 13 hours of mindless blood fest.

I’d give this game a 9/10 and if it wasn’t for the annoyance at the end boss, this would have got a 10/10 from me.

The MacBook Pro Unboxing.

Posted by Ub3rG33k on Jan 10, 2009 in Apple

Gotta love the apple packaging

What’s underneath the MacBook Pro

The stylishly designed document holder

The multi ended power supple cable (which if you didn’t know is held onto the Mac with a magnet, so no fear of breaking off the end of the power adapter if you were to trip over the cable, Clever I know !)

Well, in true geek style, I thought I’d take shots of the unboxing of the MacBook Pro.

btw, forgot to mention in my previous blog “Apple Day, Hurray !” , that we went to the Apple store, because the one I had ordered, was due to turn up on Wednesday, and I’m just far to impatient, got home, only to find it had been delivered and left with the neighbour ! I know, the irony ! However it did mean that both myself and C could start the Apple learning curve together.

Below is the shiny new one from the Apple Store

and here are the 2

So, on with the unboxing

Out of the box

The huge trackpad

The left hand side connectors

The SuperMutli Drive Slot

Such a nice Gloss Screen

The first switch on !

The welcome message

The backlit keyboard

Finally the lit up Apple logo on the back

Below is the now slightly over crowded computer room

However, C may have lost her MacBook to the cat, as he seems to think it’s his new bed, lol
