videogameinhd - Devil May Cry 2

I’ve been playing through the Devil May Cry series recently - I've been meaning to do it for years but with the release of DMC5 I finally decided it was time to get round to it. I really enjoyed the first game, and it felt great to finally finish the whole thing after never getting that far when I was just a little teeny tiny baby boy.

DMC2 on the other hand just completely drained me for some reason. The reality is it’s not a bad game. There’s a bit more variety in combat (if you really wanted to put in more effort than necessary) and the environments have a little more flavour, but the whole thing is so tedious and underwhelming. And they still didn’t fix the camera issues from the first game. I’d heard a lot of negative stuff about DMC2 prior to playing it, but I figured I had to see it to believe it.

3 hours 40 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. I could’ve watched Beetlejuice two and a half times in that span. That’s it, that’s my review, don’t play DMC2, just go watch Beetlejuice at least twice.

The Best Simpsons Video Games

Hello once again, dear reader. Last time we looked at the “Worst Video Games featuring The Simpsons”. We saw shocking skateboarding, a questionable beanstalk and God-awful wrestling. It wasn't all bad, however - for every bad mobile game there could possibly be a good mobile game, it’s not out of the realms of possibility!

So join me as we take a look at some of The Best Simpson Video Games!

videogameinhd - Resident Evil 4

I can’t remember how many days Resident Evil 4 takes place over. Most of the game plays out under cover of night, but the amount of times Leon ends up knocked out leaves me clueless - my guess is it’s somewhere between a full work week and one day. I think what’s really more disorienting is that Leon manages to survive on a diet of noxious looking plants, and some suspiciously raw eggs. Now that’s what I call an all-day breakfast!

The Worst Simpsons Video Games

One of the biggest television shows since television began is that funny yellow family we all know and love, The Simpsons. They have just recently been renewed for 2 new seasons taking it up to season 32. Through all the seasons we have had a multitude of merch that stems from alarm clocks, soaps (on a rope sometimes), figures, foods, drinks, doormats and even actual real life Duff beer!

Not all of it was good however, especially in the interactive form! Join me on a journey as we go through The Worst Simpson Video Games!

videogameinhd - Final Fantasy 9

Wow! A comic about an extremely esoteric event in Final Fantasy 9! What a twist!

There’s a moment a few hours into the story that allows you choose Princess Garnet’s nickname, and this really should be trivial decision, in the end it’s just a name. For some reason the cutscene preceding your choice really tries to guide you to a specific name, to the point where naming her anything else makes it seem like you’re the crazy one for wanting to have some agency over a character’s name.

Otherwise, I’ve been enjoying the Switch version of FF9 since it dropped after the last Nintendo Direct, though the fact it’s a port of the mobile version is a little disappointing. Regardless, it’s still my favourite Final Fantasy title, and hopefully they’ll give the game the attention it deserves.

6 Albums From 2004 That You Should Listen to Again

This week, we thought we’d do something a little bit different for the UDS blog. The idea started with a random year chosen by our own Neale, and as you’ve probably guessed from the title, the year chosen was 2004. We then each chose 2 albums from the year 2004 that we think people should go and check out again. The albums we’ve selected are a reasonably eclectic bunch, ranging from Metal to Glam-Pop to Japanese Alternative Rock and all sorts in between. So, without further ado, here are 6 albums from 2004 that we think you should go and listen to again!
