I tried downloading another MMORPG tonight.. You know, to see if I can find something with a better fighting system than Perfect World, like Cabal, but a better character customization system than Cabal, like Perfect World. (Oh if only I could combine both of their awesomeness into one game.. That would be sweet.) I tried.. Rappelz.

That's all for now. 64 weeks of nothingness, and I come back with this glittering gem of... Well. Okay. A glittering gem it's not, but at least it's mildly entertaining and informative. That's what I do.

Not just for videogames anymore.

Beware of: spoilers, image-heaviness, foul language and mentionings of slightly naughty things.

It's been a long time.

Control Freak is back, and, this time, I've got a few new reviews up my sleeve. Let's take a bite into the Wii, shall we?

When Nintendo first unveiled it's Wii console's controller, still codenamed the 'Revolution' back then, I'm sure we all had an idea of the kinds of games we'd be playing on the system--they'd all include interactivity thanks to the X-Y-Z axis movement sensors of the controller and nunchuk, and most if not all of the games would be branded by Nintendo's special flavor of whimsy that no other company has ever touched. We, ladies and gentlemen, were absolutely correct.

After a long, hard year of ups and downs for the next generation, one question remains. Although it will not be answered very soon, I, Control Freak, decided to personally jump head-first into the matter and conquer the pros and cons of the next generation of video games.
These comparisions are 360 v PS3 v Wii v 360, so each system is weighed against one another.

There you have it. Perhaps these pros and cons will sway your purchase, perhaps not. The main point is is that they are there. One thing is for sure:
It'll be easier to decide once the consoles have launched.
Until next time! Control Freak, out.

A couple of years ago at a little event known as E3, we were introduced to the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS. These handheld versions of their mama and papa consoles were revered as a sort of wave of the future. Gaming on the go had never looked sweeter or seemed more fun. Said revolution also spawned one of the biggest arguments in the gaming world in years--

Who Will Win the Handheld War? 

Until next time. Control Freak, out.

How far would you go for love? Maybe even a little.. too far? Would you even go so far as to be in the...

Shadow of the ColossusCollapse )

This review, just like my others, is completely spoiler free. I write my reviews this way because I want (or don't want, in some cases!) you to experience the game for yourself! However, if you would like to know the ending to a game, send me a message, and I'll find a way to get those spoilers to you! I am a sucker for spoilers myself, but some things are just too good to not see for yourself!

This has been Control Freak, feeding information to the gaming masses since 2004!

In world where video games are becoming less and less original, and feeling more like you're paying large sums of money to play the same game that barely wowed you the first time, there was a messiah. Innovative game play, strange, yet laugh-your-ass-off humor, and insanely addictive music were the tools of this messiah, and it's name: Katamari Damacy.

Which is precisely why it was no surprise that it appealed to people, and became one of the largest sleeper hits of the past year. Let's face it--I love Katamari, you love Katamari...

We Love Katamari! (Review Inside!)Collapse )

At this year's Tokyo Game Show, next gen was everything--from better graphics to better physics, to better.. well, everything. Which is why it was such a perfect time for Nintendo to unveil their biggest secret of the year--the Nintendo Revolution controller.

Get the skinny in here!Collapse )

Anyone watch G4techTV's Attack of the Show? No one?
Well, you're missing out, especially if you're into old NES games.
Looking at these creations, you can probably only guess what David will be unvieling on Attack of the Show in the future. His latest assignment is yet another NES mod. Perhaps one day he'll be able to modify the system itself? Only time can tell. And when the time comes, know that Control Freak will be there.
Control Freak, out.
Current Mood: energeticThis is so awesome!
Current Music: The sounds of snoring and soft core porn.
