Games: Blood and Hogwarts
Being a bit bored without the test overhanging above me, I played a few games (demos) and I got a review for them. First game I tried was Hitman 2: The Silent Assasin. If you played Commandos, same game only one player and in 3D. Well, I didn't like their "sneak from behind and strangle them method". I dropped the silencer, shot the first guard, about 20 more came out, shot all them too. One of them dropped a shotgun - got that, killed all I saw in sight. The boss died before I even saw him (too much smoke from shooting his bodyguards). Lame game. Next came BloodRayne (about cool vampires). That game is freaking great and I really want it! (Hint: if you want to make me a gift, find it somewhere for me, I might even pay a few for it) Really the best game in a while. Deserves a special spot that comes a bit later. Then was Beach Head: Desert War. LAME. Worse than that. The game is so pathetic, I won't play it even if they pay me the 19.99 that they ask for it. Even worse than its first part. After came Harbinger. That was Diablo 2 in cheap Sci-fi mode. The controls are the same, the concept is the same, the game even looks similiar. Sockets became slots and gems became chips. So I can stick a +3 plasma chip into my gun to add it some additional plasma damage. Rip off! Besides, the game tended to get stuck so that you lost control over your character and died. Beated the demo, have no desire to ever see it again. Then was Breed. That was very short because it didn't work. Said that some file is missing. The last was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: The Game. Here I will do some creative stuff, let's see how that turns out. (Note that the comments are on the game. I didn't not hate the books like this)

Rayne: 17 year old vampire day walker. Out to kill her vampire father whom she've never seen. (He raped her mom) In the process comes across the Nazis in WWII and takes them all out. (That is why they lost, and Hitler didn't kill himself)

Harry: 12 (I think it is) years old demented loser who must be starving so he went out into the school to collect all flavor jelly beans that are scattered in nice patterns all over the rooms. In the process he encounters some Pokemon and kicks Ash's ass to ashes.

Rayne (Or agent BloodRayne since she enlisted into some special service agency) has two long blades attached to her arms that she swings around in a very sexy manner, slicing and dashing all that comes in her way. Harry (or Harry Potter as we were informed after the game started) is holding onto a chopstick that makes blue sparks when he waves it around. That does completely nothing.

Rayne has both hands free, as the blades are permanently attached to the wrists, so she can also hold two weapons, allowing her to target/fire at two targets simontaniusly. Harry has his left hand free and when you wave the oversized toothpick, he also waves his left hand, as if he has tourretes. That also does nothing.

When Rayne murders with her knives, her BloodLust level goes up and once it reaches some level, you can enter the BloodLust mode, where she'll be killing on touch. Very graphic and pretty - limbs flying all over the place and blood spreading over the whole room. Harry, while swinging his arms has a yellow dot hanging in front of him - when that is aimed at an object, it will take form of a spell and release the spell up letting go of the mouse button. Main spell is "suck up" - when you aim upwards at a statue this spell will make the statue shake with joy and give you more jelly beans. The only battle spell are stunning and pushing around what you just stunned.

WWII Germany HQ is full of evil Nazis and Rayne takes them all out with her wide variety of skills. When life goes low, she can bite people, either by jumping on them when they are off guard, or by harpooning them towards her and consuming them on the floor. Both show a closeup of blood splattering all over. Harry goes around by stunning spiked snail Pokemon and then pushing them onto buttons and such. Later he meets a fire brathing Bulbazar (a turtle) and also stuns it to push it around.

Best shot - killing one boss in BloodLust mode, Rayne swung her knives on two parallel lines one going right under the crotch and the other right below the shoulders. The resulting 6 pieced then flew all over the screen. (2 legs, 2 arms, 2 pieces of the torso) As sad as it sounds, Harry's best shot was pushing some turtle off the stairs. It actually rolled.

Rayne should come to Hogwarts and smear all the walls with blood of that pathetic wizard boy. They do lack red in their decorations. Rowling should prohibit the sale of the game, or at least demand them to add a note to the box - only for children who don't know any better.

I want the full version of BloodRayne!!!

...I own the Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets game. He doesn't collect the beans for food, oh no. Especially because they are Bertie Botts beans and you'd have to be stuck out in the desert for a few weeks for those to start looking good. Of course, you'd already have eaten your shoes at that point. No: young Harry collects the beans to trade for stuff that he sometimes needs, sometimes doesn't. Those sometimes purchases include silver and gold wizard cards, which you will never, ever find all of. NEVER I SAY!!! These cards give Harry bonus life and help unlock a door. Which he will never, ever get through. ARGH

Ok. Now if your computer is strong enough, go to www.bloodrayne.com , download the demo and play that. Or if you can't run, get some gameplay videos of the same site and watch them. Then tell me what you think. :)

I wish! I am in Delaware right now, and I don't have my own computer, and am banned from downloading anything onto this one.

But the deuce take it all! I went to the website and that looked hot!
