No Gravatar2010 has been a good year, with many things taking place.  Even with all of it’s changes, there were 10 things that were important enough to me, to make it on this list.  So, without further a due, here is my top 10 of 2010.

10. Yu-Gi-Oh!

This year, Yu-Gi-Oh had its 10th year anniversary, and creator Kazuki Takahashi celebrated with the release of Bonds Beyond Time, a 3D animated featured film. The movie features Yugi Moto from the original series, Jaden Yuki from Yu-gi-oh! GX, and Yusei Fudo from Yu-gi-oh! 5Ds in an adventure that spans from all 3 story arcs of the show thus far. It features a new villain, Paradox, and his malefic monsters made up of the stolen cards from the three heroes and their friends. The movie is set to release next year in America with a special promo pack given out in theaters, and sold in stores. There have been 3 games released this year for Nintendo DS, Sony PSP, and the Nintendo Wii. There was also three new promo TCG sets along with the standard releases, by the name of Hidden Arsenal. These sets are very special as these cards where only available at Duel Terminals, which are scarce in the United States. The new season of Yu-gi-oh! 5Ds aired on 4kids TV, and there was a new manga series Yu-gi-oh! R. I reviewed this series earlier this year on ROG. It’s time to duel, again.
9. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

The Jerry Bruckheimer (the producer of Disney’s Pirates of The Caribbean) take on this series had everyone blown away this year. No one expected the film story, the cast which featured Jake Gyllenhaal as the Prince, and bringing the magic that is the Dagger and Sands of Time to life on the big screen. The Film had high octane action sequences you would expect from a Bruckheimer film. There are many high flying acrobatics with parkour chase scenes. The fight scenes even look like they’ve been ripped straight out of a the video game. The story had been changed, the Prince, named Dastan, his father, his uncle, the Visir Nizam (played by Ben Kingsley) and his brothers that ruled over Persia after he was adopted into the kingdom as young orphan boy, which he then meets the beautiful Princess Tamina ( played by Gemma Arterton). Tamina guarded the sands with her life and foretold some one would save the kingdom and someone one betray it. This by far is one of the best film adaption to a video game series every, it is a must see and if you know the story a must see again.

8. St. Louis HIP HOP

St. Louis hip hop has come along way. The five major acts, Nelly, Chingy, J-kwon, Jibbs and Huey, have made their mark on the city but now there are alot of new, up and comers that are looking to take the top spot in the city and in hip-hop in general. Those aritist included Luey V, Shorty Tha Price, Laudie, Ray Tha kidd, Tez Banga, Team Fresh Boyz, Yung Ro, Young Rhome, X.O, Shawtie 314, MC, Opps, Gena, Ceo Lace and Nokeio, RemRod, Ruka Puff, Ebony Eyes, June 5th and many many others. They do not hesitate to work with the local producers, dancers, and R&;B acts to diversify their sounds. They also are not afraid to play as many venues as possible to generate new and different fans. They connect and listen to their fan’s input which alot of artist fail to do today. The future looks bright for all of STL’s rising hip hop stars, so be on the look out for them on a radio station,and in a music store near you.

7. Mobile Suit Gundam 00em>

Never did I once take a kin to a series, especial a Gundam series. Earth has lost almost all of its Natural Resources and has been divided into 3 regions, the Union, the Human Reform League and the AEU. The three nations built orbital elevators to gather energy and get humans to work in space. The only problem was one region wanted it all, and where all on the brink of war. Thus the counter terrorist group and peace keeping force know as Celestial Being came into the fold with the powerful Mobile Suits know as Gundam as their weapons of choice. There were four Gundam Miesters where selected to wield the power of these four machines each holding up CB’s motto and mission to eradcate war through armed interventions. They each have their own reason to eradicate war, but only together will they re-unite the world of the world and bring peace to it once again. Look for this in an upcoming review on ROG soon.

6. Batman

The Dark Knight may not have had a feature film out this year, but he had a strong grip over the animation side of things. The Tv show Batman the Brave and the Bold was a hit, as well as his 3 DC Universe Spotlight films, The Justice League Crisis on Two Earths, Batman/Superman Apocalypse, and Batman: Under The Red Hood. He’s been featured in three games, Batman the Brave and the Bold, The Game of the Year Edition of Batman Arkham Asylum and the beta for DC Universe Online. Lastly he’s had his most anticipated return to the comics, well Bruce Wayne any way in Batman The Return of Bruce Wayne, and Batman Inc. These comics bring him back into the fold after the events of Final Crisis, and Darkest Night/Brightest Day, after he was presumed dead by superman but it was no less but a clone of him. Terry McGinnis also returns in the Batman Beyond Mini Series as he and Bruce took on Hush, the story picks up after the final episode of the TV series. Things are looking good for the Cape Crusader as next year in January on Cartoon Network a Series Young Justice will premiere which is a spin off of the Justice league and Teen Titans shows, in which Batman leading Robin and host of other young heroes to do battle with the forces of evil, and DC Universe Online Launches January 11th. Batman Arkham City will be released for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in fall 2011 and there may possibly even been a teaser trailer for 2012’s Batman the Dark Knight Rising which is the 3rd Film in the Christoper Nolan’s Film Reboot.

5. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood

Ezio has come to Rome, and the amount of detail and game upgrades from the ACII and the online mode is superb to say the least, offering up a new competitive multiplayer experience. Ezio is back to finish the work he started in Assassins Creed II. He will avenge his fallen comrades and uncle Mario from the Borgia, by rebuilding and leading the Assassins guild to battle. Desmond will continue the fight against Abstergo on the outside as he learns all of Ezio’s new moves and skills from the Animus system. Not to be outdone the Templars out side of the Animus by rebuilding the Brotherhood one solider at a time. In the multi-player mode they will train up soldiers to take on Ezio/Desmond, with you playing one of the many people captured and put into enslavement to do their bidding. You and your friends will be back stabbers and this time both the story and the multi-player will be expanded through DLC.

4. Mafia II

Vito Scaletta is taking his life back, after his father slaved to the Mafia of Empire city and him almost losing his in WWII. Vito’s family lived most of their life dirt poor and his best friend Joe Barbaro helps him get into the Life. The Mafia had them both working as grunts for along time until they final showed and proved their usefulness but at cost of many of those they loved. Their loyalty to each other and to the family was even tested each and every day and the dirty work even put them even more at odds . The game play was tight, the cars where of those classics of the era, the music made you feel like you where from the 40’s and early 50’s and the voice acting was amazing, you really felt like your where apart of the Mafia. Hopefully we dont have to wait another 10 years to play this next game in the series again, bravo to 2k games.

3. God of War III

The action, the pain, and the vengeance, Kratos brought the noise in his “final” chapter. You felt as though the Gods trembled as Kratos beat each and every one of them down to a pulp. No spoilers here though, just play the game and find out. The weapons where some of the best in the series and the boss battles where spectacles to be played and marvel at the same time. Most of Kratos’s arsneal was plucked from the God’s own dead hands after he defeated them, and you were brought up close and personal each and every battle. The music kept your blood pumping and your heart jumping, the environments, had many sides to them to move on through Mt Olympus and you will learn all of there secrets and battle along side the Titans in the breathtaking open sequence . The only problem with this game was it was a tad bit short but it is ok, Kratos is and forever be the God of War.

2. Tron Legacy

I wasn’t born by the time 1st film released but I studied up and got into the universe heavy before seeing this film. Who would’ve though after July 9, 1982, that Disney could push CGI, and 3D in films to the level they that they did with this film? The story was easy to follow. It had a some easter eggs from the 1st film, 80’s classics and other Disney Sci-Fi Films. Daft Punk also made their return and scored this masterpiece with the help of a live orchestra, they woven a seamless soundtrack of techno/house music with Disney’s standard but stellar ensemble There is three things left to say to you, go see it in IMAX 3D, join The Flyyns and fight for the Users. Stay turned for my full review on the movie, coming real soon on ROG.
1. Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption is an instant classic. This game will have you hooked from the title screen to the end credits as you follow John Marshton in the fight to save his family and the old west as he knows it. RDR is living proof that Rockstar is not just the GTA company. The game has two HUGE single player campaigns RDR and RDR Undead Nightmare and is equally large. The expansive multi-player in this game, even when you beat the story mode, will keep you playing it well into next year. The old west will come alive, through the amazing voice acting, the environments, the sound design, the music, the game play is spot on there is no reason you shouldn’t have this game right now on Xbox 360 or PS3. Every one needs to have this game, so if you don’t, go get it ASAP and like the Truth and Treezy504 said for Uncharted 2 last year it was the GAME OF THE YEAR . Look for my complete review on this game as well coming real soon to the ROG.

***Happy New Year and be on the look out for my most anticipated for 2011 and the new episode of I heard’em Say Ft Hip Hop Gamer

By otakuman5000 On 21 Dec, 2010 At 04:35 PM | Categorized As Editorials, Xbox 360/Xbox One | With 0 Comments

No Gravatar2010 has been a very busy year for video games and a lot of great titles have appeared on the shelves this year as well as a few great titles picked up a little late. Here is my top 10 played games of 2010 that include a few classics.

10 – Monday Night Combat

Monday Night Combat is a XBLA game that was released in 2010 and is almost entirely online. It has a cartoon  look to it and offers competitive and cooperative modes with 5 unique classes to choose from. This game definitely is over the top and just fun to play and for anyone that likes to play Team Fortress 2 will seem vaguely familiar.

9 – Medal of Honor

This is the game that rebooted the Medal of Honor franchise and finally took it to the modern combat that many have grown to love because of games like Call of Duty Modern Warfare. With a completely separate online and offline component this felt like two games rolled into one. The single player story is compelling and feels very natural with squad mates backing you up and an online that allows for light vehicle combat and an upgrade system that keeps the game competitive. However the short story is what really keeps this game so low on my list.

8 – Bioshock 2

Released in early 2010 this game has received some complaints from people that have played Bioshock 1 however this game offers a great online and offline experience while expanding the Bioshock universe. The single player takes you through the game as the big daddy from the start and offers another walk through Rapture, visiting new locals from the first game. As familiar as this game feels it is a totally new experience with great visuals. The only problem with this game is the lacking online community, less than a year later and it’s difficult to find a match online and even more difficult to jump into the DLC maps.

7 – DJ Hero 2

By far my favorite music game ever created with great mixes and taking the Gameplay a step above its predecessor. With freestyle cross-fading, freestyle scratching, and all DJ Hero1 DLC working in this game, it really gives a much more immersive DJ experience but the most impressive part is the amount of mixes available on this disk and nowhere else.

6 – Gears of War 2

This is by far my favorite Xbox 360 exclusive franchise ever created but since this game was released in 2008 it has to reside low on the list. 2010 was the year I won the game of the year edition of this game from the folks over at Xbox Support on twitter and finally did a play through on Insane difficulty. The epic story combined with horde mode and comparative multilayer made this one of those games you never forget and definitely makes the wait for the third iteration worth it. With occasional online bonuses popping for during different occasions, this game is in my Xbox periodically throughout the year.

5 – Halo Reach

Halo Reach is the prequel to Halo Combat Evolved however technically superior to all Halo games before it. With you taking the role of the new guy amongst team Noble on a mission to save the world from the attacking covenant by delivering a package to the Pillar of Autumn where Master Chief is in cryogenic sleep. The graphics are beautiful, the AI is very smart and a lot of game modes to play. This game has many hours of play in it and a community that is very devoted so it is very easy to find people to play with in any game mode.

4 – Assassins Creed: Brotherhood

With the story beginning right as the second game ends, this lets you play as Enzio once again in the huge map that is Rome. The combat system is evolved, new game features, a new training program and online play it definitely gives our favorite assassin a second much deserved wind. The graphics are still great looking and the gameplay is familiar while adding new twists. The online offer what i can only say is the best version of Hide and Seek I ever played with great kills having high rewards so you know all that trouble is worth it as opposed to just running around and lunging at every target.

3 – Fable 3

At first Fable 3 seemed to be a step down from Fable 2 but quickly I realized that it was simply streamlined. Gone are the days of having a hundred weapons and is replaced with evolving weapons. The only downside I felt was there was the magic system was too dumbed down from the last game. The story itself was a great continuation from the previous game and the visuals look great. The battles are bigger and definitely a lot more enemies are swarming you as you play through this game. The multiplayer is finally fixed with Xbox Live allowing for easy jumping in and out of games without camera issues. Besides how many other games allow you to be a king?

2 – Call of Duty Black Ops

It was tough to not put this game at number one. With it’s great single player story, fun Gameplay mechanics and what I consider a fixed online system that lets me live longer then 10 seconds after spawning because of stacking kill streaks is one of the best games I played this year. The graphics look great offline and online with lots of customization available for the user and a lot of game modes packed it. Dead Ops is fun for sure and zombie mode is always enjoyable with a few buddies for hours on end. There is no reason not to play such a great and polished product.

1 – Red Dead Redemption

This was by far the best game I played this year, it was long, it had a very interesting story and about a hundred things to do if you didn’t feel like playing the missions. Even after the game is done there is still a lot to do because the world is living and continuing around you with fun random events. The game looks great and plays great for the most part, being that big there are bound to be a few issues here and there. The online is fun and definitely makes it rewarding to shoot the enemy and get those points with some larger maps allowing horses to be used. And if you just want to fool around with friends, the whole map is open for free roam with up to 15 other people with all the gang hideouts available. Now with the Undead Nightmare add-on, this game gets even better, I mean zombies in the wild west is pretty cool, and the horses you can get is even more cool. Overall this was my most enjoyable game of 2010.

Memorable mentions


-Mass Effect 1 (still need to play Mass Effect 2)

-Dead Rising 2

So there you have it, my top 10 games played in 2010. However I have a feeling if I played Mass Effect 2 this list would be different because of how much I like first one but I am waiting for a few days to play it without interruption.

Please note all these games were played on the Xbox 360
