Bud Reviews: Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare (Xbox 360)

I've got to hand it to Popcap, they made the original PvZ and acknowledged how good of a universe it was. It's like they discovered Plutonium by accident. The PvZ recipe was already unique, but taking it in a whole new shooter direction is a very good move. Calling it Garden Warfare is a punch to Activision by playing on the "Modern Warfare" tag. It's the plants you know and love vs. the standard zombie invasion. The premise is still great. At a $30 price tag, I went in expecting a multiplayer experience that's meh. I saw the trailer and thought this might be stupid, the soundtrack they selected for all their trailers wasn't of the quality that I was expecting. Naturally I'm expecting an amazing soundtrack, and if the trailer don't got it, does the game have what it takes?

Bud Reviews: Halo 4 (Xbox360)...1 Year Later

As with most of my reviews, they're not punctual with regards to the release date. Halo 4 by 343 came out on November 6, 2012. It's Feb 2014.I feel that reviewing a game at any juncture is a valid opinion. It changes our perception of the game. Especially for games, the hype plays a major role.

Prior to this review, I booted it up and played Halo 3 and Halo: Reach. Luckily on H3's multiplayer there were only 149 players world wide. Gone were the days of half a million players :( at one time. Halo reach had a good amount of players.
Onto the review:

Bud Reviews: The Lego Movie

What can I say about a movie that's about Lego? This isn't Lego Star Wars, or Marvel. It's about the brand. The iconic toy from yesteryear. Who hasn't heard about Lego? I wonder if our current timeline is influenced by this child's play system. Can you imagine a timeline where Lego was not invented? Much of today's creativity was influenced at some point or another by this fascinating company. They're not just plastic toys to amuse children, it's much more than that. Lego's have become legendary. A mantle few can ever reach. The shear impact of this brand is unfathomable. Lego went all out. And it's expected of them. With their failure in Lego Universe game and the rise of Minecraft, they had to do something.
