Worst Game You've Ever Played?

I would have to say.... is the home version of Dragons Lair, because erm... its very difficult its nothing like the arcade version, you know where the knights trying to go get the dragon? And it was you know... just real difficult and I couldn't get the screen to click over right, so it was just kinda frustrating.

The Longest Game You've Played a Game?

This had to be for like 12 hours on a tour bus we played Madden all the way from Texas to Atlanta and I happen to be the winner. So I played all the way you know ...till the joystick got hot all the way, I was whoppin' everybody!


The Most Embarrassing Defeat?

This had to be when the NBA Live came out. My son is like 9 years old and he whopped me really bad... I didn't know how to play really good. Seem like he had some cheat codes or something! My little boy just beat the breaks off me at the house ...and you know he's always braggin' about that.

Your Favorite Gaming Character?

SUPER MARIO GALAXY 2 : IS IT OUT OF THIS WORLD?

Mike Anthony | 22:33 UK time, Thursday, 24 June 2010

Mario.jpg

Let me tell straight away.....I'm NOT a Mario fan! SHOCK! HORROR! GASP! I hear you say....
Look, when it come to platform games like Mario and Sonic I think of an 11 year old, kids graphics and repetitive gameplay.

In 2007 Super Mario Galaxy changed my opinion. Now with a packet of onion rings and a tall glass of orange juice filled with ice, its time for the second installment. Check out what I thought of it here.

MY MOST MEMORABLE GAMING EXPERIENCE.

My most memorable gaming moment has to be clocking Street Fighter for the first time with KEN and thinking "is that it?" I was always disappointed with the endings on that game the amount of hours I put into that game I felt I deserved more. I got that feeling with a few games still!

Other then that I do remember watching one of my cousins on one them gaming shows on TV. One back in the day talking about he lost cause he's hands were cold....kmt! Propa let down man!!! Looool shout outs to Bradley Thomas hahaha yes that's your name and I'm baiting you up! I SHOULDA BEEN ON THAT SHOW!

Drake's in Gears of War 3 and he ain't alone.

Mike Anthony | 11:04 UK time, Wednesday, 16 June 2010

Gearsdrake2.jpg


Drakes in Gears of War 3!!

Well after seeing Jay Z and Eminem endorse DJ Hero 1 and the news that Ushers in DJ Hero 2, Pharrell Williams will headline the soundtrack to the action game True Crimes:Hong Kong and Eminem's track from his Recovery album is gonna feature in the latest Call of Duty Black Ops. The news has been announced that https://gearsofwar.xbox.com/AgeGate.htm in (the biggest game of 2011) Drake will now be joining the cast of Gears of war 3!! Unlike the the other artists, this isn't he just loaning a track or making one for the game, he's actually gonna be a character!! And its not some random part its apparently one of the main dudes in the game. He's gonna be playing Joce Stratton who will be a central character to the final chapter in this game trilogy.

And he says really excited "When Epic came to me with the role, I couldn't pass it up," said Drake. "They've created an amazing character in Jace, and I'm looking forward to my tour in Delta Squad." The game isn't dropping untill Aprill next year, but I can't wait to get my hands on it.

What do you think about artists getting involved in games? Do you think its big kids indulging themselves? Does it add anything special to the game? Or are marketing men smelling gaming dollars? Do you think Drake really plays Gears or do his kids just want free Xboxes for life? Holla back on the blog let me know what you think.

Check out some artists performing at this years.

Ace Reviews UFC Undisputed 2010

Producer Woman | 22:36 UK time, Sunday, 13 June 2010

Aceross.jpg

S'up bloggers, its your boy Ace, (thats right other half of the dynamic duo Ace n' Vis). I've been bugging Mike and Trebs to let off some games to me to review for ages, and now I've finally managed to get my hands on one. UFC Undisputed 2010.

UFC/MMA fighting is popping off right now!! Slowly going away are the days when professional wrestlers are the dons of TV fighting. Now instead of dudes in tights and masks jumping off of ropes and hitting each other with chairs its all about 2 very insane looking fighters squaring off in an Octagon. Yeah UFC ain't as drama filled as the WWE but the difference is UFC fighters can't be messed with!! So can the same be said about this game??

Exclusive Annoucement: DJ Hero 2 is coming!

Treble T | 05:31 UK time, Friday, 11 June 2010

DJH2.jpg

Now you know we're officially World Record breaking DJ's here at 1Xtra. Well here's a game thats very fitting. DJ HERO!

It's coming back, a game we took a very close interest in first time round, and we came to the conclusion that DJ Hero 1 was flippin good fun especially after playing disturbingly competitive Shola Ama and really getting to grips with the controls! (Check it back here). The only problem was you couldn't actually learn how to DJ! (Bit of problem). So now they've announced the new one, I can't wait to get my hands on it and see if Its closer to my "real" DJ experience or even if it's just more good clean fun. Details have just been announced with new stuff like new mixes, fresh mash ups and exclusive free downloadable tunes so check out the website here.

Producer Woman | 00:31 UK time, Thursday, 10 June 2010

guest_bloggers_j2k.jpg

S'up bloggers, J2K back in the place.

Yeah it week I'm continuing my reign on this gaming blog, whilst Rampage go and make me a cuppa (2 sugars boys!). So last week you got a little taste of my gaming history, worst defeat, longest time I spent on game etc.... This week's I'm giving you some valuable tips that you need to know when gaming, check this out....

My TOP 3 GAMING TIPS:


1. Your TV has to be no less then 20 inches and NEEDS to be a good quality TV
its not about that ancient TV your nan used had back in the day. TRUST ME!!

2. Make sure you have a dud pad spare for any tournaments that take place.

3. Always be ready to press the reset button incase of any emergency (i.e losing
by some sort of accident! Lol)

WHY I CAN'T STOP PLAYING....

Back in the day one game that I couldn't stop playing had to be Sonic th Hedgehog the game had me completely gassed! Particularly the music that played a massive part in it it was hypnotic I remember my nan use to come in the room and shout at me to blink I was completely tranced out swear down Lol! Doctor Robotnic used to make the hair stand up at the back of my neck real talk!! His intro music was a nexxxxt tiiiing!!!

On a more recent gaming situation though there still ain't a game that can hold my attention longer then Pro Evolution can! Actually its between that and Fight Night!! Although I aint played that for ages.


That's me for another week, check back with me next week to find out what my top 5 games of all time are, (bwoy ...thats gonna be a tough one, gotta give it some serious thought ), so hit me back next week and see if you agree with my top 5.

guest_bloggers_j2k.jpg

Oh and just before I get into this I just wanna add that my grandad use to throw all our computers in the KITCHEN bin if they were by the telly in the morning brand new or not!!!! PAR! PAR! PAR!

OK THEN now I got that off my chest let's get into this..........


GET THE REAL DOWN LOW ON J2K'S GAMING HABITS.


Worst Game You've Ever Played?

........Erm! lemme think! Okay on a old school one it has to be "Ecco the Dolphin" I can't actually remember what the aim of the game was but I just recall being bored out of my face. Playing it was worst if I had to wait and watch someone else playing this utter garbage couldn't wait to turn it off to put in another game!

ecco1dolphins.jpg
Longest Time You've played a Game?
Hmm... probably about 8 hours I'm not too sure! (Is that officially sad?)


Favorite Gaming Character (Hero or Villian).

My favorite gaming character of all time has to be Sonic the Hedgehog or KEN from Street Fighter I preferred him over Ryu cause I liked his cockyness and his dragon punches were better (that's just my opinion) and WHAT??


kenstreetfightercropped.jpg


Most Embarrassing Defeat

My most embarrassing defeat would have to have to Lady Chann on Street Fighter of all games she gave me a spanking that day, but can I just say ... I weren't in the mood to play computer games that day... and I swear my pad was sticky and had all crisp crumbs all in it! (I'm just saying) ;-)


What's the most amount you'd spend on a game?

The most I would spend on a game is £40 I think that's pretty reasonable...(What did you think I was gonna floss and say £500 or something??? C'mon - be real).


So that's me for this post, check back with me next week to see what whilst I'll be chatting about from the gaming world.


Bless up.
