“My own place under the sun”

      It was here that I started my studies in earnest: I entered the first grade when I was only 5 years old, when at the time, children entered when they were about 7.. I quickly rose to the higher echelon of my class…

“My own place under the sun”

      In a bustling city, filled with all the features of a metropolitan: From huge malls to tiny boutiques. This was where I was born, My name is Jan Di Carlo Tuscano, and you will learn about me later on.

     In my early childhood, I lived in a small portion of that city…A distance away from the Huge building of a metropolitan, but not too far away that travelling downtown will take hours. I remember when I used to play with my friendsAfter a few years of blissful living, my loving father died, and we moved to a small, developing city named Tacloban City..

Top 10 Video game weapons

10. Mega Buster Arm

MegaBuster (570 x 428).jpg

                                  Dirty Harry had his Smith & Wesson .44 magnum. James Bond had his sleek Walther PPK. Mega Man has his Mega Buster. Early in the series, Mega Man carried around a weaker, less capable version called the Mega Blaster, which could fire a trio of rounds at the enemy. In Mega Man 4, however, old Doctor Light put an end to that, giving the Mega Blaster the first in a series of major upgrades. Now imbued with the ability to charge up a blast for more damage, Mega Man’s signature firearm went from a standard cannon to a powerful tool of destruction. And more power is always a good thing.

9.  The Blades of Chaos

Blades of Chaos (God of War series)

                 Although this deadly weapon is a starting piece of equipment, it is no less impressive for it, and deserves to be here. Any hero can wallow through a group of enemies swinging a sword or axe to and fro, but it takes an absurd amount of coordination and dexterity to make swinging two blades connected by a chain look and feel as visceral as it does in God of War. Even if someone were to somehow sneak a gun into Kratos’ world, they would have to stay at a significant distance to avoid the reach of the Blades. Whoever designed these things needs a medal, because they are sweet.

8. Lightsaber

Lightsaber (any Star Wars game)

The lightsaber is not just one of the best video game weapons, but one of the best weapons period. Swinging this plasma blade into a group of baddies is awesome, plain and simple. It can slice through metal, it can deflect incoming blaster fire, and it makes one of the coolest sounds I have ever heard. Not all video game weapons would translate well into other games, but I would be happy to see the lightsaber as an option in every game. Just imagine running around like crazy in COD trying to knife people, except instead of a little knife you have a lightsaber! A side note: The beam katana from No More Heroes would be an acceptable substitution for the lightsaber at this spot on the list, but I’m a Star Wars guy, so the ‘saber gets my approval…

 

 

7. The Master Sword

                             The Legend of Zelda Series

                      One of the largest, most successful franchises in video game history is centered around a single object: the Master Sword. You need it to destroy evil, save the girl, and become a man. What separates the greatest iconic weapons from the rest is the way the games can incorporate them into the story line. The Master Sword is the definition of this — you see it in a number of major titles, it plays an integral part in the plot, and is supremely effective in combat. It isn’t the biggest sword, nor does it do the most damage, but at the end of the day, the Master Sword will be the one slung across Link’s back as he rides Epona off into the sunset.

6. BFG 9000

BFG 9000 (Doom)

                  can’t imagine anyone reading this being surprised to see this gun on the list, although some may question its spot at the top. Allow me to explain: There aren’t a whole lot of weapons before this one (or after for that matter) that inspired such awe after firing for the first time as the ‘Big Effing Gun,’ and it has an awesome name. Yes, there are other weapons out there that are great at clearing out groups of enemies, but none that do it with as much style as the BFG. I still remember the first time I wielded this beast, and unleashed its green goodness into a room full of demons which were promptly decimated. Good times my friends, good times indeed.

5. Pistol

Pistol (Halo: Combat Evolved)

                   Any Halo veteran will be able to tell you stories about the infamous pistol from the original Halo. It was a hand-cannon that could function as both a close-quarters option and an impromptu sniper weapon.It could drop lesser enemies in a single shot, and even the larger and more powerful foes would succumb to three or four well-placed rounds. Add a zoom scope and you have one of the best guns in gaming, period. Unfortunately as the series continued, the pistol was changed and lost its stopping power, and although Bungie attempted to bring the beast back, it hasn’t been the same. Ah, well, we will always have the good old days.

4. Energy Field Manipulator

GGUN (570 x 428).jpg

                              Stepping back, let’s just look at what made this ‘gun’ so cool. The physics. Simply amazing. You could grip a far away object and throw it anywhere you wanted. A pioneer in this respect, Valve was able to give the gamer something entirely new: an item for self defense that didn’t require ammo or plasma or a charge — instead, a simple relocation device was enacted, and since, gamers can’t get enough. Remember how nervous you felt when all your guns got lost in that crash towards the end of Half-Life 2? And remember how totally okay you were with it once you tried out the charged-up gravity gun? Yeah. I do, too. That’s an amazing gun.

My top 5 2012 games for the Xbox 360

5. Resident Evil 6

 

The Resident Evil series has been one of the greatest, if not the greatest horror thrillers ever made. There is no doubt that Resident Evil 6 will be the greatest iteration in the Resident Evil series. This Horror Thriller sees the return of two of the series’ most well known characters, Leon Kennedy and co-star Chris Redfield. They are also joined by new characters who aid them in stopping the world’s greatest threat.

Resident Evil 6 will span the globe for the first time ever in the Resident Evil series. Players will get to kill a zombified President of the United States, and venturing to the Far East in search of answers to the latest virus outbreak.

Resident Evil 6 is Capcom’s most ambitious title in the series to date, offering the largest ever cast of characters, with an equally big budget going to the game’s development.

 

4. The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings

                            Action RPG franchise The Witcher, based on Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski’s popular book series, has been a hit with critics and gamers alike, though the first two games have only seen release on the PC. That’ll be changing next year, when developer CD Projekt RED brings The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings to the Xbox 360, complete with a substantial content update.

Putting you in the shoes of a monster hunter named Geralt, the Witcher 2 provides dozens, if not hundreds, of hours of gameplay, a branching story, and a combat style that’s regarded as brutally tough to master. It’s also received acclaim for its mature, nuanced approach to its storytelling and morality system, making for a refreshing alternative to standard console RPG fare. If you’ve been looking for a deeper role-playing experience, the Witcher 2 should be right up your alley.

 

 

3. Mass Effect 3

               If the Mass Effect series excel at one thing, it’s scale. Every time you fill the boots of Commander Shepard, you’ve got an entire universe to explore, a mystery to unravel, and millions of people to save (after, of course, you scan this planet for Iridium). With the upcoming third installment, BioWare is looking to make the definitive Mass Effect experience, combining the second game’s refined combat with many of the deep role-playing elements that fans loved in the first title. And of course, you’ll be getting a dynamic, branching story that’s affected by the decisions you’ve made in prior games.

For the first time in franchise history, Mass Effect 3 will also be offering multiplayer support. In a Horde-inspired co-op mode, you’ll be able to create your own character and team up with your friends to save the galaxy from the impending Reaper threat. The amount of time you spend in co-op will even help the outcome of the single-player story, though it’s entirely optional if you’d prefer to go it alone.

To top it all off, Mass Effect 3 comes with some of the cleverest Kinect support we’ve ever seen: You can issue voice commands to be able to give orders to your mates in battle and navigate through the game’s hundreds of dialogue trees. Sure, it might be a bit on the gimmicky side, but if we get to actually yell at that muckraking reporter before Shepard inevitably punches her a third time, it’ll all be worth it.

2.  Prototype 2

                   The first Prototype was a hit or miss for many gamers. While I felt the gameplay was certainly fun, the graphics and story left much to be desired. The sequel is set to right all the wrongs by allowing gamers to play as a new protagonist with better graphics, gameplay, and a storyline that puts Alex Mercer taking the role of the villain. I happen to like games that don’t challenge you quite as much as they let you destroy everything with the abilities of an extremely powerful character and that’s just what the team at Radical Entertainment are creating. It certainly won’t be the first time Manhattan becomes a stomping ground, but I’m expecting this will be the game we all wanted the first Prototype to be. With tons of new animations, gameplay features, and a plethora of moves to devastate New York and rip apart your enemies; Prototype 2 could have an improvement as substantial as Assassin’s Creed 2 had to its predecessor.

1. Halo 4

               I am placing Halo 4 at the top of my list for the sheer amount of reputation it has gained. Its been hard to obtain information about the game, but here’s what I uncovered: There will be a new storyline which sees the triumphant return of Master Chief and Cortana called “The Reclaimer Trilogy”. There is also a new HUD display and a new multiplayer mode.

               In a lot of ways, Halo 4 will be a proving ground for 343 industries who inherited the game from Bungie, the series’ creators.If they can pull off the perfect blend of action and storytelling that made the first few games wildly successful, we’ll have plenty more adventures with the Chief and Cortana to look forward to.
