Mortal Kombat — Game Review

With an ever bloody battle awaiting your turn, summon the warrior in you with this another epic release in the series

The latest Mortal Kombat game (also called Mortal Kombat 9 or Mortal Kombat 2011) is more fierce and challenging than ever. It has been developed for PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360 gaming consoles.

This ninth title in the 19-year-old game series is a combination of occurrences from the first three games with a twist. There are 16 chapters in the story mode and you can play with one specific character in each one. The game unfolds from the end of the previous sequel Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, in which the sinister Shao Kahn had superseded over all Realms as the ultimate ruler. Thunder God Raiden at the verge of defeat transmits a message in form of flashes of vision to his self in the past. While Shao Kahn intends to merge the Outworld and Earth Realm together to bring an end to all the life forms, the Raiden from past decides to rescue the inhabitants of the Earth Realm with the help of the Time Travel Mechanic.

There have been a number of tweaks and changes to make the graphics and gameplay much better. The combat mode is 2D while the game progresses almost in a 3D manner. Controls have been diversified to let the player have a suitable check on the situations. Some new features such as Quick Dash, Fatalities, Babalities, and the X-Ray Attacks have been introduced. You can also play the mini games incorporated in Mortal Kombat for short episodes of action and adventure. For example, Test Your Might, Test Your Sight, Test Your Strike, and Test Your Luck. The Challenge Tower mode gives you a mission to get through 300 levels in a row.

The fights are more violent and this version has more gore all around when compared to the previous versions. If you are raging to rip apart some evil heads, visit the official website for download details.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

If you were ever bewitched by Mythology and wondered over Angels and other heavenly things, this is one game to give you some close participation

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron is an action game based on a story developed from the Apocrypha (The Book of Enoch). The gameplay involves seven apostate angels (which are collectively known as Gregory) and the central character Epoch. The group of angels is assigned the task of keeping a vigil on the world. However, the angels get more inclined toward human beings, and in their infatuation, they descend to the Earth renouncing all their duties. This infuriates the Heavenly Council, which then decides to flood the Earth and erode the lives as a punishing gesture. At this point, the priest Epoch protests against the ordeal, urging reconsideration. The Council sends Epoch on a quest to bring back the fallen angels, in lieu of a review.

In his sanctified quest, Enoch is aided by Lucifel (the guardian angel), Raphael, Uriel, Gabriel, and Michael (all Archangels). The gameplay is brilliant and instantly absorbs the player within its surreal grip. There are three primary weapons: Arch (the curved blade that helps stay afloat for a while), Gale (the ring that enables sprint and darts), and Veil (the shielding and punching gloves). As often the weapons are used, their strength gets weakened and thus need to be depurated frequently.

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron has very impressive graphics and the fights are entertaining. The challenges are not too tough, which hints at the fact that the developer wanted you to enjoy the game without sweating much. If you are looking for a title that has something different in its ploy and play despite being an action game, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron would be worth the try.

Portable gaming on a budget

PSP, or the PlayStation Portable is a handheld game console marketed and manufactured by Sony. The latest version of the console, the PSP Go, was released in November 2009. It was recently announced that Sony PSP Go would soon be sold for $150 in the US. Previously priced at $200, Sony quietly decreased the price of its portable gaming console, thereby making the UMD-less portable PSP Go game console getting a $50 price reduction. Sony had proclaimed a price cut of $40 on the PlayStation Portable 3000 handheld game. Observers believe that all this is to accommodate Sony NGP that sports Quad-Core SGX543MP GPU and Quad-Core ARM Cortex A9 CPU.

Sony had announced that the price of NGP would not be $500 and it is assumed that it would be priced less than the Sony PlayStation 3 itself. 6 years ago in 2005, Sony had sold PS3 at a loss of $200 for every console; however, it is now getting the benefits of the game console hardware. According to reports, the graphical capabilities of Sony NGP are in the middle of the PSP and PSP3 game console. David Coombes, who is the platform research manager of Sony Computer Entertainment America, said that it would not run at 2 GHz. There are still some who believe that this is the best time to purchase Sony PSP Go. A major portion of the Sony’s PSP catalog still is not available online, and if you buy the PSP Go, you would not be able to play games like Crisis Core, Tactis Ogre, or the PSP remake of Final Fantasy Tactics. The NGP might probably not allow UMD trade-ups. In comparison, PSP 3000 has a bigger screen and also rests comfortably in your hands and has almost every advantage the PSP Go has, including storing downloaded PlayStation Store games on memory cards. In India, Sony had introduced the PSP Go at the start of this year for Rs 12,990 but it remains to be seen if the PSP Go would see any price cut here anytime soon.

Sony® to Launch Networked Portable Game Player, Smartphones

A revamped and updated PlayStation handheld gaming device will be unveiled by Sony followed by a smartphone with gaming capability. Sony is planning to use its networked entertainment services to share data, media and games among handheld devices, TVs and other media enriched platforms. Sony will unveil the new portable player and a Sony Ericsson Touch enabled smartphone. The company seems to be ready to make a comeback and give its competitors something to worry about. Sony also realizes this market is dominated by Nintendo and Apple and so will have to be very careful about playing its cards.

The portable entertainment system dubbed as the successor to PSP is said to deliver ultimate portable media experience. According to Sony’s press release regarding this product NGP (code name for the yet to be titled product) is designed to propose supreme interactive entertainment that would only be possible on a PlayStation. This innovative design would present a innovative blend of rich gaming and social connectivity inside a real world situation, made promising by leveraging SCE’s experience from both PSP (PlayStation Portable) and PlayStation 3 (PS3) entertainment systems.

With both Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity, jointly with a mixture of applications, NGP will facilitate endless potential for users to connect and share with friends wherever they are. Within the device are a range of features that provide a genuinely cutting-edge, next generation ultimate portable entertainment experience. It features a mindboggling 5 inch organic light emitting display (OLED) and an innovative user interface combined with a high performance CPU and GPU to give a never seen before visual experience.

This is going to be one of the most awaited release of this year. Judging by the products Sony has put in the market recently, this release will be an event with much fanfare. Let’s hope it has a better luck than the PSP and can rival Nintendo’s 3D gaming portable player. The NGP has stiff competition decked out for it and it will be a fight that gamers will relish.
