We have been a bit inactive here at Drop Bear Gaming so far in 2013 due to a number of unforeseen things. Excessive work at our day jobs, illness, my laptop committing seppuku and the other distractions of life have meant we haven’t managed to get many posts up here. We are working to rectify this but to make up for not really covering anything this year I’ve decided to give a run down on what big news has been happening in the gaming world in no particular order.
Like many others, I have been waiting with bated breath to see what a first person shooter on the Vita would be like. The unit obviously has the potential to be great and with the sales not going too well, perhaps a FPS is exactly what the system needs to jump start its popularity. Resistance: Burning Skies is the first of the genre on the Vita and being a first-party title you would expect it to come out guns blazing and showing off exactly what we can expect. Sadly that isn’t quite what has happened.
I love me some fighting games! Yes-sir-ree~ I’ll admit I haven’t played any of the Marvel vs. Capcom games or the like before – that is, before Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 for Vita is pretty much the same as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, but it has the added handiness of being able to be played on the go on a hand-held.
When I got my Vita the game that I wanted to have a crack at the most was this one, Rayman Origins. After its PS3 version got the first 5/5 drop bear rating (and the only one so far) on this site when I reviewed it, I was extremely keen to see what Ubisoft Montpellier could do with it on the Vita.
Woo yeah, Dynasty Warriors! I love this series to death; it has heaps of re-playability, a huge roster of characters you can play, lots of unlockables, and anyone can pick it up and have a go. If you’re unfamiliar with this series, it’s a hack and slash game with a story loosely based on the historical Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. The three kingdoms of Wei, Wu and Shu, each with different leaders, have the same goal of uniting China under their own banner, but each has a different idea on how to go about it. The Chinese novel was based on actual events, so most of the characters in Dynasty Warriors are just re-imagined versions of their historical counterparts.
A truck load of Vita games have been added to the PlayStation Store in its latest update, and being the informative and friendly guy that I am I’ve decided to post them all here to save you the trouble of looking for them!
Today is New Years Eve, a time for reflection on the past year and a time to start setting goals for 2012. We launched Drop Bear Gaming officially on January 1st this year so I thought this would be a perfect chance to sum up the highlights of 2011 for DBG and gaming in general. A lot happened this year in gaming as well as some major milestones for us as a site so join me as I reflect on the last 12 months.
