PS3 Yellow Line of Death, aka YLOD : The truth is....

Ok I thought I was making a smart purchase about a year ago by getting a FAT or PHAT backwards compatible PS3. Yeah, I guess I was chasing the rainbow on that idea since little did I know at the time that these older fat consoles hide a little secret..THE DREADED YELLOW RING OF DEATH, or aka YLOD.

The Yellow line of death rears it's ugly head usually as a result of the fact the system has overheated. The older PS3's are famous for this and if you ask me, Sony should give us all a refund for a faulty console!!! Now..there are,  a lot of sites and videos out there that will tell you how to fix the YLOD but what they don't tell you is this is just a temporary fix at best.
Whether you use a heat gun y…

If you love gaming that goes beyond today and takes a "trip through the past" then you will no doubt love "The Angry Video Game Nerd" and his humorous yet, expletive filled angst against faulty video games from the old school generation games and their consoles.

James Rolfe, age 31, reportedly has been filming reviews of games since the late 80's (he must have started as child...) notoriety and fame started to climb after a filmed review 2006.

Unreal Tournament III Review

Image
Image via Wikipedia Unreal Tournament III,  isn't what the name would suggest, it's a common FPS multiplayer with online game play. The game shares similar characteristics with Gears of War II, which came out in the same year. The style of the game is a fast paced FPS game with splendid graphics, effective game play and memorable gimmicks.

I've played both of them on the PS3 and Xbox 360, there's slight sound glitches with the PS3 version, but that might just be me. Other than that, it's a pretty great FPS for the price, I mean, I got it pre-owned at Gamestop for $5.00, for game like that, it's a steal.

Let's begin with the cons: 
Whenever your starting a match, it takes a few seconds for the textures to load, which is somewhat irritating. The problem should be eliminated if the game is installed on the hard drive. Another con is that the control settings are difficult to adjust for "n00bs" to FPS games. The campaign, it's a little tiresome to …

God of War: The Series Review

Intro
When I first put this game in my console, I was thinking "Oh, another game based on Greek mythology, it shouldn't be anything special.  But by the Gods of Olympus, I was terribly incorrect. The intro shows a man with ashen,white skin saying: "The Gods of Olympus have abandoned me..." Right off the bat I thought the voice acting was really good. Kudos to TC Carson who brings the main character Kratos to life in this series.
Your journey begins on a ship in the mythical "Aegean Sea" where these lovely  beasts called "Hydras" are destroying the ships and sailors, withe the help of a legion of undead soldiers. You know the challenges to come are only going to get more intense from here....


Gameplay The fighting style of Kratos (the main character you play as) is so fluent and fun, nothing is more satisfying than turning your enemies into mincemeat with the Blades of Chaos. The level of destruction you can levy against your enemi…

God of War Trilogy - God of War 1: Review

Image
God of War (video game) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)When the first game in the series came out, the developers didn't have the best technology, considering the fact that it was made in 2005. But at the time when the game came out, it was spectacular. The story, the game play, the graphics were good but still limited.

The game play was nice and fluent, and the developers continued to use that same style throughout the series. Out of the whole series, I believe that this is the longest running out of all the games. After the game was released, it immediately was rated a 9.3 on GameSpot.

The plot revolves around a spartan warrior who serves the gods with promises of his past memories and nightmares being rid of. He's given a final quest to go and kill the God of War, Ares. Hence the title being "God of War". It's not often this type of brutal, action-adventure game comes around. At the time, people were amazed at how incredible the game was. Overall, the game was fanta…

God of War Trilogy - God of War II: Review

Image
God of War II (Photo credit: Wikipedia)God of War II is the sequel to God of War 1, and is surprisingly better but not as memorable as it's predecessor.

Plot:  When you start up the game, you see one half of Kratos' face as you did in the previous game. After he killed Ares, he was given the throne of the God of War. He commands his army to attack and conquer the city of Rhodes in Greece. He leaves his throne to aid his men when Zeus takes the form of an eagle and takes away Half of Kratos' god powers. Then he revives a Colossus Statue to destroy him (while ironically destroying everything in his path).

Kratos defeats the statue at the cost of sacrificing all of his godly powers and putting them into the Blade of Olympus. The falling hand of the statue smashes Kratos and breaks his armor, mortally wounding him. Zeus appears and takes the Blade of Olympus and drives it through his torso, killing him. Kratos vows to take revenge on Zeus and he aligns with the Titans to do so.
