Its been a long time since I’ve actually gotten the time to sit down and really play some video games — life has a tendency to get in the way of just decompressing and acting like a kid sometimes! However, since a friend from out of town came in for this week, we decided to each purchase a game and play it. He purchased Shadows of the Damned and I picked up Bulletstorm.
Shadows of the Damned is in his words “Resident Evil with toilet humor.” So, you can take that whichever way you like. Assuming you like Resident Evil and toilet humor you’ll have a match made in heaven, if you don’t then, well, you know the rest.
Now, Bulletstorm in my opinion is an over-the-top shooter that doesn’t really make a lot of sense, but doesn’t even really try. It’s like the movie The Expendables. It’s so full of testosterone and explosions you’re just along for the ride to have a good time. I think this game is the winner of the two however, since we’ve basically sat down and just kept playing Bulletstorm as opposed to playing it for an hour and then going, meh, back to Shadows of the Damned, or even worse, going back to a game that I haven’t played in a year like Uncharted 2 (which is really good btw).
