Let’s Talk: GUN on the PlayStation 2

Posted in I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2019 by getbent57

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry.  One of my very favourite PlayStation 2 games is GUN.  Played all the way through it about six times in a row. The last time I played this was back in 2006.  Must say the controls hold up well.  So does the game play. Think it is well worth you time checking out.  The game came out near the end of the PS2 lifecycle.  Around this time the Xbox 360 was out.  So the game was all so on that.  As well as the first Xbox.  Meaning there are many options to play this game. What are some of your favourite PS2 games? Let me know in the comments below.  Check out the video > here or below.

Lets Talk: Light Gun Shooters on PlayStation 2

Posted in I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2019 by getbent57

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry.  Talk about light gun shooters on the PlayStation 2.  Been a big fan of light gun games ever since I played Duck Hunt on the NES.  Flash forward to the PlayStation 2 days. Which had many awesome ones. In the video I talk about three I own. They are hard to play now a days since you need a CRT TV for them to work right. But they are still playable with a controller.  That is how I captured the footage.  Played them on my PS3.  You can give it a watch > here or below.

Red Faction On PS4

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on July 8, 2018 by getbent57

Back in April (2018) bought a copy of Red Faction of the PlayStation Store for the PS4.  It was part of a sale and got it for $2.00.  This the first game I bought when I got my PlayStation 2.  Don’t think I every beat the game.  Well the other day got around to trying this out.  Have to say it runs great on the PlayStation 4.  Sure the graphics are dated but the game runs smooth.  Took me awhile to figure out how to save the game.  Forgot the touch pad on the PS4 control acts as start and select, depending on what side you push.  Going to see if I can finish it.  So far I can remember some of the levels.

Red Faction On PS4

Red_FactionI can still remember buying my PlayStation 2 and the game I bought with it was Red Faction.  What made this game standout it has a “Geo-Mod” feature.  This let you destroy parts of the environments.  Which is pretty cool for a game back in 2001.  Well the PlayStation Store is running a Double Discount sale (ends April 24, 2018).  They have a while range of games on sale.  If you are a Plus member you get an extra discount.  One of these games is Red Faction.  The regular price is $20.00.  The sale price is $10.99 and if you are a Plus member you get 45% off.  It was going for $2.00. Could not pass this one up.  Have yet to play it.  Am sure it will looked very dated but should still be fun to play.

ATV Offroad Fury

ATV_Offroad_FuryThe last few times a bunch of us had a game night.  We would end up playing a lot of older games.  Some I have never played and others which I haven’t  seen/played in years.  One of which was the PlayStation 2 game ATV Offroad Fury.  This was released in 2001.  What made this one standout was that it was open world.  It has a feature which lets you drive around the map placing waypoints were ever you wanted.  Then you would save the course.  Next loaded it up so one or two players could race the course you must made.  What we would do was.  One person would make the craziest course possible.  Then the others would race each other trying to set the fastest time.  Back in the day we would do that for hours.

Well the other night got to playing this game again.  It has been about fifteen years since I last seen this.  My friend still had all the crazy course we made back then on his memory card.  We gave one of them a try.  Must say the game holds up well.  The controls are nice and smooth.  Looking forward to trying this again.

Fire Pro Wrestling – Returns

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on March 29, 2016 by getbent57

Fire_Pro_Wrestling_ReturnsA few day ago while at a friends out for a game night.  We decided to play some old PlayStation 2 games.  He has a bunch of games I have never heard of or seen.  Once such game was Fire Pro Wrestling – Returns.  This game came out back in 2007 in North America.  Have played many wrestling games over the years.  With most of them being not so great.  This one on the other hand it awesome.  This first thing you will see the that camera angle the use I never seen before.  It from the closest corner.   There are 100’s of wresters to choose from.  You can all so make your own.  They are made of sprites so they look good.  There many be only a few frames of animation.  But that doesn’t matter because the moves they pull off are real wrestling moves.  Which there is a lot of.  The other standouts are the matches, Singles to Battle Royal to Electrified Barbed Wire Ropes Exploding Deathmatchs.  There are all so weapons.  All these features and settings can be customized.  Was very impressed with this game.  Can’t wait to try it again.
