"Yeah... what, you don't like shotguns?"
"No, yeah, shotty's a'right"
"Yeah, shottys are good mate"
So, as you guys might be able to tell from the movie quotes, I watched Two Hands recently. If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's a 1999 pulp action movie starring Heath Ledger about a man named Jimmy and his involvement with a big-time crime lord known only as "Panda". Overall, I really enjoyed it, it was funny but not too funny, so it could still have some serious appeal, definitely a classic movie.
Anyways, this is a blog about video games, so let me get to...
The Question of the Day
Are you out looking for new 2009 games or are you still playing game you picked up last year?
Well, I guess technically I'm still playing games from last year, but my holiday season wasn't exactly filled with games. See, due to lack of funds from this shitty economy I didn't buy any games from october straight through december. In fact, just the other day I picked up Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, and it was the first game I bought since september. I suppose since my financial situation is looking up i'll be getting back to playing more games, but this time of year is always slow for new game releases, anyway.
So, I guess my answer is technically, "Yes, I am still playing games from 2008" But it's really just cause I haven't had a chance to.
What I've Been Playing
Well, like I said, I picked up Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts the other day. So far, the game seems great, but it can also wear a little thin at times. After playing for a couple hours, I kinda get sick of it and I want to do something else. That's not nessicarilly saying the game is bad, I'm having a lot of fun with it... but I just don't think it's game of the year like Brad does.
Since my last blog i've played a lot of different stuff, my buddy Matt was in town, and we played a bunch of games on his PC. Mostly LAN stuff, with me using his laptop. To name a few, Sins of a Solar Empire, Diablo II, Titan Quest, Dungeon Keeper 2, Warcraft III, Battle for Middle Earth, Battle For Middle Earth II, and some others.
We also got in some Team Fortress 2, Age of Chivalry, Zombie Panic: Source, and some other Half-Life 2 mods, just playing online on each computer, which I guess doesn't technically count as LAN.
Also, I started playing some more PC games with the lack of games being bought for my 360. I played some Zuma, some Puzzle Quest, but not nearly enough to talk about it. Overall, I've been gaming a lot, especially with my budget, but I haven't posted that many blogs on here.... hell, my last blog was in September! I feel as though I should post more, though, and you can definitely expect more from me as the months go on. 2009 feels like it will be a good year for gaming.
