General--- Wow i cant even post a blog every friday. Already missed a day after just 2 weeks haha. So A little of whats been down with me. NOTHING! i've just been working. i was working on friday and got out around 10pm, come home TIRED! just dieing. So yea, but i did buy a new game after i got my Tip share from work. Had enough to buy a awesome game. or fully pay Alan Wake. Stupidly i bought a game but was so worth it. Batman Arkham Asylum, just bought it and so glad i did. Game of the Year edition that comes with the DLC and a little extra, its in 3d! crazy.
Batman--- so yea pretty awesome game, it really pulled me in the Batman universe a lot. I dont read comics or anything or watch any of the t.v. shows but this game is amazine! I'm not sure how they can pull off Arkham Asylum 2. I have so many questions for the game, but dont wanna ask them here for spoiler reasons. Still i love the steal. I just beat it on Hard yesterday. Took me just one day, its not very long. Of course if you want to collect all the riddler stuff then yea thats going to take a little time, but hey thats what the walkthroughs are for me. To help me get the collecters stuff right? so anyways, yea Batman : AA GOTY GREAT game. love the stealth. i loved the game even more on hard, it really made me feel like i was Batman because i was kicking a$$ and doing all these combo moves without any help, like the indicator that tells you when you should counter. When that is disabled it really grabs you in with ever fight scene. The A.I. is great on Hard and rewardinly challenging. You would always want to be more stealth in Hard. Easy, if you get cought you can just go on those gargoles, and in 2 secs the A.I. would forget where you are. In hard mode though, you have to really plan out everything so percisly, Amazine game. If you haven't bought the game yet, this is a perfect time to do so.
Alan Wake--- Alan wake comes out tomorrow, got a call from gamestop that says there is a midnight selling, for sure nobody is going to be there. i was at the gamestop where i reserved the game, and they just got there box shipment. Their was only one box, and i was the only one who got the Collector Edition ( so the manager of the store told me ) so apparently nobody who goes to my Gamestop is excited about Alan wake WHICH IS CRAZY. I'm pretty sure there more excited about Red Dead Redemption, which to me looks like a great game. a open world Wild west game from Rockstar, sounds fun. But Alan Wake seems a lot more story telling and exciting. I was never a big fan of Rockstars story telling it just seems so obvious most of the time. New guy comes, kills people to save other people. Pretty much the way i see it. Not saying they make bad games, not saying that at all but Alan Wake to me just seems like a better waste of my money then RDR. So yea i guess ill go to the midnight thing for Alan Wake but i'm going to be there around 11:55am, Just assuming that not many people are excited about it. The Collecter Edition just feels more worth it then just buying the game, im not sure why not everybody get it, especially just $20 more you get the first DLC, the soundtrack, and the book. Not sure if i should read the book first then play the. I wanna read teh book because it just seems like theres going to be more details in the book then whats going to be in the game, but at the same time i dont wanna read it because i wanna be surprsied when i play the game but again at the same time i wanna see how much the game and the book are so similar. Oh well ill figure that out once i actully get it.
End--- not sure what else to say, ill probably write a review of Alan Wake a week after i play it. Of course it will be more organaized then my blogs, no misspelled words and horrible grammer. unlike my blog i will actully look t what i write in my Reviews. So ill catch you all later.
Hey everybody Devileye writing another blog for this friday (technically it's friday so im writing something) again the blog box typing thing is still super small which is kind of anoyying at this point but im still here. So a little of what happened to me this week. First big thing that has happened is that i got my frist job as a busser *YAY* it's pretty cool because I'm working with my brother and sister, should be fun right? So now i have money to buy some games at here and there. Which is good because now ill have some stuff to right on my blog and maybe even type up some reviews, right about my experince, make a journal. My Game and Simulation teacher always told me to keep a journal of the games i play, of what i like and what i dislike of the game and what i would change. So i was excited about that job. The next thing that happened over the week was that my brothers' baby boy was born. I'm so proud of him and his wife. Another little guy in the family, i really hope the best for him. Now to talk about game wise, I bought two games this week (thats kind of a lot for me) those two games are Saw, and Just Cause 1, "WHHHHHAATT!!!" i'll explain later, but for now lets talk about Saw!
Saw- So i've been wanting this game for the longest, since i heard about it coming out. I haven't seen all the movies, in fact i only saw the first three Saws (or maybe two i forget) and since this was based between Saw 1 and Saw 2 i thought i knew enough that there was to know in the game that i didn't need to see more of the movie. So far i think the game is pretty good, not bad but not great of course. if i would give it a rating on this website i would saw three stars of course. I enjoy the enviorment of the game, how the weapons are scatered around everywhere like Condemend, I enjoyed it much. The spookyness of when the top floor above you, when it makes crackling noises and dust and dirt fall from the ceilling (is that how you spell it?) It gives it that great spookyness and of course who doesnt love the puzzles that saw gives with the brutal gore that everbody loves. It's a shame that the thing i hate about, is something i really really hate about the game. Thats the Combat and Voice/Lip Syncing. Im not one to care much about grapchis in video games, but the voice lip syncing in this game was just horrible, it's if the characters mouth are always open, they always seem to show the same emotion when their angry and that's having both there hands open waving it around looking left and right at the same time. So far thats all that everybody has done. Also the combat in the game is ridiculos, i mean again is not HORRIBLE just needs to be a bit quicker. it is if your character (Detective Tapp) HAS to be next to the person just to melee the enemy. I rather have it so that whenever i press that botton i would swin the weapon and if the enemy just so happened to be next to me, i would hit him. Hopefully i'll have time to write a review of this game on this site with some videos i'll record.
Yes Just Cause. "Devileye why would you buy such a game" because i want to play Just Cause 2 since it was such a huge upgrade but i seriously didn't think Just Cause 1 was THAT BAD, yes its a open world but its really hard to get through the place. Of course i didn't play much of it yet. I only did one mission, and that took forever since i was so use to the Just Cause 2 demo, with the grabbling hook and parachute whenever i want. So far Just Cause is pretty bad, its not giving me a good imprission at this point, but for $9.99 what was there to complain right? By the way, if anybody is actully reading this (haha) When i bought Just Cause 1 i of course could only find it Pre-Owned at Gamestop, and they didn't have the original cover and if your like me, i would much rather have the original cover and not this Gamestop pre-owned over. So my question is, Where can i just get a Just Cause cover, does anybody know if i can trade in the Pre-Owned Just Cause covered at a differnt Gamestop and ask for a original cover?
anyways i think thats all im writing for this blog. I wrote it so early because I'll be working later this day. I'll write next week Peace Everybody
First off, Wow i haven't wrote a blog in awhile, i was hoping that i will at lease keep this updated once every two days you know? but i guess i just got lazy.
So i got Dragon Age for the longest, sometime in december, but i had a lot of other games i haven't played. I thought i would get 1000gs for all the game first and then i would play Dragon Age to end it all. Since i have yet not got all the Gamerscore for all those games i had before (i still have it) i thought i try Dragon Age. After playing it i was sucked in. Bioware really did out do themselfs for this game, no joke! I am alittle dissapointed due to the fact that the main character does not talk. I do on the other hand can accept the reason why the main character doesn't talk is because there is much more diologe in this game for the NPC. And there are muiltple voices for the Main character when he/she is in combat. They would mostly say "i got it" and little things like that but anyways. Im not really sure what i typed before this because for some reasons the blog box that im typing in is again really small. I hope they fix this.
Anyways So i was listening to the newest Bombcast from whatever this blog was posted. AND they said Super Street Fighter 4 was only $40!! I KNOW! i really thought it was $60 but right when i heard $40. DEAL im in! i never played Street Fighter, i dont really like Japan games but this one has so much stuff to start off with right? So i played it and of course im not good, i dont get how the weird combos work in trils (is that what its called) im not sure what im doing wrong, but i know if i keep playing it ill get use to it right? well hopefully. Id probably be playing some online and get my butt kicked by the pros out there who've been playing this game forever. Well that has been my Game week. Ill write next friday, maybe keep this a weekly thing. I think i will.
I'm not sure what's going on with the blog thing because as of right now, while i write this, i can only see four words and it skids to the next line and i can only see two lines. so... this doesn't really look good for me but im still ganna write something because i didn't blog yesterday. So a little of what i did yesterday. I went to a baby shower for my brother, was taking care of my grandpa, he insist on paying me to take care of him as my job for now, so every saturday i go over and take care of him and he gives me $50. After the shower i went right to sleep. When i woke up i found out a lot of people were over just drinking so i thought i joined in a play a few beer pong games, it was nice. So today i went to gamestop. As i was at gamestop, i looked at the list of which games they are taking reservations. Theres just so much games i want, so i thought i break it down a bit you know? i asked questions like which games has the "special" items that comes with the reservation. They told me a couple (can't remember them right now) that i didn't really care for. Like the one for Blue. If you reserve it then you can download the arena and play it earlier then everybody else. They told me you need to be a level 5 or something to play in the arena and im thinking, " well i played the beta and it wasn't that hard at all to get to level 5 so forget that" So forget about the special offers, i asked which games had Limited or Collectors edition because you only get such a few weeks to pick that kind of stuff up you know? might as well get a limited edition game then a regual one. I asked how the Alan Wake limited edition was, what kind of stuff is in it because im very very interested in this game. They didn't know what came with it so i thought i looked it up on my phone. The book that the game is based on, soundtrack, a code for the first DLC, some other thing, Avatar items. and all that for just $20 i was like Oh my god, OF COURSE ILL GET IT! it sounded like such a great deal. so for right now i put $40 on Alan Wake cant wait for 5/18. I saw the quick look video of Again, it looked halarious, and bad at the same time. So bad that i kinda wanna try it out. I hate to say it but i download DS games, NOT ALL OF THEM. if its a GOOD ds game ill buy it but i mean bad ds games why not just download it right? well whatevers. even if i get bad comments about it, it's not like im going to stop. so ANYWAYS, i downloaded it and im going to try to see how bad this game really is. I downloaded Skate 3 as i said in my status. Didn't really try it much but you can tell theres a huge differnce, i like how they show you how you moved the thumb stick. It really does help a lot of what i am doing wrong, or how the game is reading it. Countless times have i wondered what i was doing wrong on some tricks in Skate and Sakte 2. Didn't really try much of the new features in the game, i hope you can darkslide in it. Thats the most antipated thing i wanna do, maybe i should have reserved that game. Oh well. So tomorrow maybe i would actully PLAY a game, so afar all i've been playing is DDO with my friend ( Dungeons & Deagons Online ) So ill check you people else were, im out. Ganna play some DS games. LAters and thanks for reading.
Didn't really play anything today, woke up around 3pm actully and just jumped right into Dungeons and Dragons Online. Sure it has the "Free To Play" but i wished everything was free. I understand not most MMO games are like that, but i do wish this game was. I almost did everything i can in this game and i am berrly a level 4. I'm not to sure how big this world is but from what i can tell, i can't really do much in it. I ussualy play with my "real life" friend. It makes everything so much better. I do like how the game lets you use Mics. Most free MMO games dont let you do that. So my friend and i decided to invite a bunch of people for the next quest we were about to do. Personally i dont really like to play with other people in my party, as weird as that must sound for a MMO, but in this case i need more people. So my friend and I invited a couple of people. They didnt have mics but of course i dont mind typing i mean im blogging on this site for three days in a row what do i care if i type to communicate with people. Anyways, im getting off track, i still kept the mic plugged in because i want to talk to my friend with the mic. Out of no where, one of the guy in are party says in the party chat room " how do i mute people." after i saw that i was like, " awww thats mean." the player replays saying, "yea whatevers." kinda of a attutude but i ignored it. So my friend and i kept talking about the game and other stuff going on with us. Again out of no where the player types (censored) "@%# how to i &($% mute this guy" i was like wow thats pretty uncalled for." which it is so i thought i started being a d!ck and responded saying "Its called turning off the speakers" he says "no its called shutting the &@*( up!" after typing that my friend right away kicked the player off. I guess my friend doesn't like it when somebody else curses to her bff :) i have an awesome friend. So what other MMOs that are actully free good? i really like to try some out.

So its about my second day with an account on this website. So far i've already gotten use to how everything works. i put my collection of video games in the list and even a sepret list for the Game Room games. Soon ill make more list like Xbox 360, and Xbox Live Arcade games that i have. Ill be getting more into how i can use this Blog stuff as well. maybe even post videos on my youtube and send it on here so other people can check it out if i bother to write little mini reviews on my blogs.
So the Original Xbox Live servers are shutting down or probably have shut down since i posted this video. Its a really sad day i remember getting my Xbox Live account the year it came out at 2002. My first Xbox Live game was Unreal Championship and Mechassault. I remember getting a demo disc with the games MotoGP and Wack. Wack was defintaly a weird game that i for some reasons enjoyed. i did eventually buy it and played the game with random people who soon became friends. Wow i cant believe it i was only 11 years old. Xbox Live has been in my life for almost half of my life now (im 19 the day i wrote this.) yea its a sad day. My favorite game on Xbox was Crimson Skies, and Doom 3. Those were really great games to play online. Even though in Doom 3 it only supported 4 players deathmatch, i loved to do the co-op. So yea Sad day for the servers shutting down. It will be missed.
So i just signed up for Giant bomb, saw that i can connect my facebook page with Giant Bomb and all i had to do was write my username. really cool. So anyways I love these guys ever since they were on Gamespot i thought there reviews were the best out of anybody elses there. Now Gamespot is WACK! im not sure what there doing to it but its not what it use to and its really sad. Giant Bomb/IGN is my place to go but i love how Giant Bomb does Commentarys in almost all there videos.
So i got Microsoft to get started on Game Room im really excited about it. so far i have 10 games and enough microsoft points to buy 2 more. I shall wait till the next pack comes out to buy more and if nothing that week then ill wait till the next. It kind of sucks since im buying this Arcade games on the PC. Im afriad if i buy them on the Xbox, and my xbox dies, ill never be able to play them again. ( or at lease till i buy a new xbox or fix it ). So i thought it would be the smart idea to buy it on my PC. its the same thing and i love it.
So at this point im not sure what to say. i would really love to write reviews on my Blog. my Game and Simulation Programmer teacher said its a great exercise to write eveything i do, the things i like about the game, all the bugs, and what i like and dont like about the game. So i think i will be starting on that pretty soon.
