Tristans Twisted World: Skype Might Come to Xbox 720

Skype might come to Xbox 720. There’s a rumor from a good source that the Xbox 720 may support the Skype app. We could possibly be able to Skype while we play games or get on other apps at the same time. Skype has replaced the Microsoft MSN Messenger which is now being phased out.

Cross-game chat on the Xbox Live service may be replaced and become redundant to the Skype application which may become the name of the cross-game chat service for brand promotion purposes.

Tristans Twisted World: Battlefield 3 Review

Frostbite 2 engine that sums this game up this game a lot. I also asked a veteran in the military if this was a realstic experince, and he said not by a long shot.

Multiplayer: The variety of big maps and team tactical combat is unmatched in this modern day FPS. You have to help your team out in a lot of ways in this game, by reviving and storming in. picking up so many options it feels real the style and the stamina while running is perfectly ligate. Knifing is definitely the most realistic kill in the game as it isn’t some stupid swing across the view, you must go up and stab your enemy. It makes you feel like a solider at some points with the recoil and aiming and destructible environment.

Co-op: The work of the two players is vital if one player goes away it is very difficult as it depends on straight up working together.The story in takes place around the campaign in areas you may have or not seen but it takes place as an alternative as you stop them from nukeing Paris at the end of it. But you must rely on each in co-op or you will fail that means talk to each other and plan ahead.

Campaign: The major area of this game for me as the main character is Sargent Blackburn you are being court marshaled but first the military wants all the info they can get out of Blackburn,so he tells his story which spans over a year in this 5 hour campaign. You fight terriost, Russians,Police,and even your own at a part of it. Most of the game you are trying to figure out what is going on in the world it all depends on the race agiasnt  time to stop nukes from hitting major points which one nuke destroys Paris and you save New York city from the second one at the end maybe it will have a sequel cause of the ending and maybe the second nuke wasn’t a threat who knows Battlefield 4 will come one day. But at the same time it fells like the story is like the improved Black Ops story

 

Graphics: PC the graphics are  great one the best or close up there with Crysis 2 on the PC as it looks as real as my own hand at times.PS3 the graphics seem to only reach highness on HD TV on any other its missing something.Xbox 360 you need two disc and download the HD content but its doesn’t close to the PC version. The console graphics just look flat out muddy and rushed compared to what I played on the PC.

Final Verdict: Beautiful Graphics, some of the worst teamwork multiplayer I’ve ever seen, co-op where you have to work with your partner which can either be great or terrible, the campaign as a decent story its epic just a little too many cliffhangers and ugly looking graphics on consoles. I find this game to be one of the biggest disappointments of 2011. I award Battlefield 3 a 3.5 as it fell below the Call.

Tristan’s Twisted World: Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Review

Call of Duty 8: Modern Warfare 3 is the latest installment of the best selling FPS ever, but it’s on every system – is that why it sells so much? Is this game really even worth it?

Multiplayer: The supposed “most fun multiplayer out there” is back again with new classes, kill-streaks, guns, equipment, etc. Some of  the new ways to play in Call of Duty this time around sort of feel like playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for the first time.

The maps have improved from Call of Duty 6: Modern Warfare 2 with some more featured locations. Some of the new weapons and such make this Call of Duty a lot more fair than other entries in the series. For example, the Commando perk has always been was way too overpowered for its inaccuracy and the stakeout could shoot someone over 50 yards which doesn’t make sense for a shotgun that size. MW3 has fixed all of those issues and made a more balanced multiplayer.

The servers are still terrible. It might just be all of the players but since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare the series has suffered a never-ending plague of dropped games. Even years after a game has come hopefully they may update it or in a future title make it more dedicated. The kill-streaks are a lot more realistic this time around. There’s no random attack dogs or surprise nukes making me think MW3’s balance is far by none close to the best if not the best of the 8 games so far. Despite the fact the maps seem a little too close to the campaign , I tried to cope.

Special Ops Missions: The missions sort of felt like Battlefield 3 but that’s not a bad thing. Despite the fact that teamwork is not needed as much in these missions, it does add to the replay value of the game. They are fun missions in which you will usually end up doing objectives like defending areas and such. It is a worth it to play through it for me personally but hardcore multiplayer gamers might want to skip it altogether due to the lack of teamwork.

Special Ops Survival: The staple stone of the multiplayer for me in MW3 it feels like a first person Horde on Gears of War and definitely blows Black Ops Zombies away by a long shot. It requires some teamwork especially when you’re facing a russian juggernaut. For big co-op games or just endless waves of fun, COD Zombies fans this is something worth playing in MW3.

Graphics: The Call of Duty 8: Modern Warfare 3 graphics can be considered in the 2009-2010 standards of good graphics as they improved a lot since the E3 demo they showed when it looked like MW2 but if you haven’t played this game – think of Halo 3: ODST, that’s what this game looks like to me  visual quality-wise.

Call of Duty Elite: The new progression system in COD:Elite is full of lag so I couldn’t get perfect on this. I’ll be back to review the service when the first MW3 map pack comes out, sorry folks.

Campaign: The best part of this game for me in an epic single player story mode. It pretty much takes place right after MW2 and shows what has happened in all Modern Warfare games. It starts out like MW2 but it’s World War 3 so it looks like the reveal trailers – it’s a good intro.

Captain Price and Soap play major roles in the story again but during most of the game you play as Yuri an ex-spetsnaz soldier who helps Soap and Price. You also play as Frost, an army marine who serves in Delta along with Grinch, Sandman, and Truck in Delta.

You play as other characters as well but personally I didn’t think they mattered as much to the story. You fight mainly in America, England, France, and Germany of course as shown in trailers. This is where MW3’s World War 3 mainly takes place. In this about 6 hour campaign which I’m glad they extended the time a little bit. it still makes for a great experience. The story mode is for anyone who enjoys epic moments, intense fighting scenes, and just plain old Call of Duty.

Final Verdict: This game is not for everyone. Mainly big FPS gamers, Call of Duty lovers, and multiplayer gamers want to pick this up. If you like a little lag, mindless shooting, and over-the-top story modes give it a whirl, since that’s what most Call of Duty games revolve around. Tristan’s Twisted World awards Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 a 5.5 out of 10 since I’ve bought the same outdated game style so many times I’m finally sick of it folks.

Overall Score: 4.5 out of 10

This game was purchased by Tristan’s Twisted World for independent review purposes.

Tristan’s Twisted World: Assassins Creed Revelations Impressions

Yes, Assassin’s Creed is back for the third straight year, but now you get to play as Ezio from the past two titles and the original assassin Altair. In this series that has barely revealed anything, gamers keep coming back for more. Players like me keep coming back to play Assassin’s Creed for story and the new multiplayer that was introduced in Brotherhood.

Now in Revelations we face uncertainty as the cliffhanger ending of Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and still the ending of the first Assassin’s Creed are unanswered. The title of this game says it all and so does the headliner “All will be revealed”. Hopefully at the very least it will be a lot more than we know.

The multiplayer is a lot bigger and better in Revelations. Now don’t get me wrong – it was good in Brotherhood definitely one of my favorite new multiplayer games of 2010 but the servers have issues including lack of characters. I also felt like the progression system was like a downgraded COD point system. In Revelations it’s improved servers you are playing on and the multiplayer plays a more important role to the story. You can hunt down targets to kill and unlock for the multiplayer. Most of them have a story behind them in one way or another as well.

The new gameplay engine makes the Creed better and makes Ezio, Altair, and maybe we will see a little Desmond action. You can jump over people toss smoke bombs and so much more. It’s something I’ve wanted to see since Assassins Creed 2 which is still my favorite in the series, but maybe not for long as Revelations has it all.

Assassins Creed Revelations is a must buy for 2011. I prefer this mainly for Playstation gamers but Xbox gamers will enjoy this if they like multiplayer so go out and get it, I know I am – Signature edition here we come.
