I have not made a proper blog on Giant Bomb in a long time so I thought I would make a quick post. Lately I have not been playing anything new, well I borrowed Star Wars: The Force Unleashed from a friend of mine and played through that. The game was pretty good, aside from a few major gameplay glitches (I fell through a level twice and could not get back in). The story was much better than I had expected, even though I already had a good feeling about the game's plot. Definitly worth a play for any Star Wars fans, but I see little to no replay value in the game.
I began playing some Elder Scrolls Oblivion, which is still just as fun as it was when I used to play it. Short story here. About two years ago I let my friend borrow my copy of Oblivion and I just got it back last week...yeah. So thats fun, I have been doing mostly side quests and finishing up the remaining guild missions so I can get the full 1000 points from the game. Fallout 3 did not really interest me much, but now that I have been playing Elder Scrolls again, Fallout is looking pretty fun.
Aside from these two games and the occasional Call of Duty 4, I have been playing A TON of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 on the Xbox Live Arcade. I convinced some of my friends to buy it now that the price has been lowered to 400 MS points and we have been playing. Well actually we try to play and I win so they go off and play other games. None of my friends are really into fighting games so they don't think Mortal Kombat is too fun. I have been playing online mostly, trying to get better with different characters. Which leads me to this.
Here are some things I asked for this Christmas:
- 120G iPod Classic - I need a new iPod and I was going to ask for a touch, but I would rather have almost unlimited space for my music.
- The Indiana Jones Trilogy DVD Collection - Can't beat the classics
- The Dark Knight - No need to explain
- Call of Duty: World at War - Reached 10th prestige in Call of Duty 4 and I thought 'hey why not do it again in World at War?'
- Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe - I love Mortal Kombat and comics, match made in heaven
- Fallout 3 - Vast open world of wastelands? Sign me up
- Xbox 360 controller charger package - Screw scrounging for batteries when my controller dies
- 1600 Point Card for XBL - Plan on buying SF2 HD Remix and Uno so I can play with some friends
My brother is also getting his own 360 this Christmas which came with Lego Indiana Jones and Kung Fu Panda, and I would totally play Lego Indiana Jones. I'll probably make a blog when Christmas comes a little closer to wish everyone a happy holiday, but if I don't get around to it, happy holidays!
