I' m still here.
I' m still here.
I'm sure everyone has seen Jeff's post by now. (Incase you haven't)
Epic speech I must say, even if you guys were kinda off the deep end during E3. (Understandable)
Personally, I paid for "the previous website". I did it because of the people there, I wanted them to be getting my hard earned money directly (although I'm sure CNET (or whoever it was) saw most of it. But for GB, I'm sure you guys would see 100% or near that of the profits. Why not try a subscription model instead of ads and paying a corporation for your success? I get that you may not want to segregate people based on their income, but if you at least give an option of ads, fewer ads + $5 a month or just $10 a month or something like that, I think it could work.
Just my 2 cents though, good luck guys and keep the info coming!
Not sure why that quote came to mind. But if you can name a game that mentions it, I'll give you a cookie!
The GB Questing system has been released as you probably know. This is bad for me because stuff like this is part of the reason I'm addictied to WoW!
Hey all! Just wanted to say Merry Christmas!
I'm working tonight but have the next 3 days off to relax and enjoy the season!
I got a new 32" Bravia so it's time to get some AC2 and of course extra WoW in.
Hope you all have a good holiday!
Well, after a very long hiatus, I'm back. I've been very active on Giantbomb, but only in a lurking sense. Quick looks and reviews mostly. But after going through my previous blogs here, then somehow ending up on Gamespot and reading all my old ones there, I felt I should start blogging again. (Or at least do one now!)
One thing I miss about game spot is the Collection aspect. I know there is a List function on this site. It feels really clunky to me. I think I may make a post on the forums about upgrading that.
As far as gaming goes. I am still playing World of Warcraft. Yes, I know, how sad. But I'm sorry, while it is addicting, it is a great game. You can't deny that. Patch 3.3 just hit and my guild is already 4/12 in Icecrown Citadel, woot!
Also we finally downed 10 man Anub hardmode, double woot!! I know I always say this and nobody has every done it, but if you play or are going to start or transfer servers, look me up!
Kainz on Kilrogg - US is currently my "main".
Now that I've gotten that out of the way, On to more game talk! I finish MW2's single player. I thought the story was ok, but a little over the top. The online is amazing, just as the first game's was. I suck, but still have fun. I'm also about 30 hours into Dragon Age and have only scratched the surface. What an amazing game! Assassin's Creed 2 is still on my to get list, maybe for Christmas?
Looking forward, with the recent quick look for Dante's Inferno, I'm really excited. People are calling it a God of War ripoff, which obviously it is. But still, I find myself more excited for that than the actual third game in the series. Also Darksiders is looking promising as well. I love the idea of playing out the Apocalypse, as one of the Four Horsemen! Other than that, FFXIV looks interesting as well as The Old Republic and even Star Trek Online. I love me some MMOs!
Ok I'm gonna call it, I'm oscar mike!
Well I'm finally out of my WoW addiction. Not to say that I'll never play again because Wrath of the Lich King looks awesome. But I'm at least taking a break for a few months.
The first game I've bought in months was Metal Gear Solid 4. I finished that in about 20 hours in the span of a week or so. It was ok but I think I need another playthrough for the full effect and I haven't touched the multiplayer either. Audiosurf was the next, which is a great little game I'd recommend to pretty much everyone. But a big recent purchase for me was an Xbox. Yes, a regular old Xbox. Since Microsoft decided to forget about backwards compatibility. I had to get one to play some of the games I missed out on. There are a few series I mean to play on it. Which I will be doing soon. They include the Brothers in Arms and Splinter Cell games. Although there are a few single titles I feel the need to play as well.
Today I hit up a local department store's bargin bin and picked up some gems for a total of about $70. Once GB fixes the collection list bug I'll be sure to finish my whole 200+ game collection. Until then here is a brief list of what I've bought and will soon be or already am playing.
Maybe I've seriously been out of the loop (WoW can do that), but I've just recently learned about Audiosurf. It's a fairly generic rhythm game. But man is it addicting.
If you are wondering, you can pick it up on Steam for only $10. Easily worth the money. It let's you take any mp3 and turn it into a level. You take control of a ship gliding along the track which is affected by the song. There is a bit more to it, but it's really best to try it yourself. (Or at least watch a video) I find it to be a nice break from Rockband and Guitar Hero.
Some cool songs I recommend you try out are:
M.I.A. - Paper Planes
System of a Down - Chop Suey
The Killers - Mr Brightside
Greenday - Brain Stew
My steam account is xBlitzerx in case anyone wants to add me. It does keep track of scores for songs with a similar to XBL ratings system.
Use your keyboard!
