Choices, Choices....

So i'm buying a new game (again) this Friday i think, but i can't decide which to get. I need halpz!

Dude, he's got a metal armor! OH SHI-!


















































Alright, i liked Oblivion the first 3 days but after that, it became boring, repetitive and uninteresting and i hated it. Fallout 3 looks a little different, seems more like a game i could enjoy, even though the characters are lifeless and emotionless. Still, if the game doesn't end up like Oblivion, then i can like it.

This looks familiar...




























I liked COD3, i loved COD4 and W@W does look like a mix between those two, and the zombie thing looks badass. I tried the beta for 15 minutes and i thought it was pretty good.

Birthday Blog - 24th of October.

So i had my birthday October 24th and i was really happy with it. Lots of family members came, and i got a lot of money (I'm so spoiled)! I've haven't go much to say other than i want to thank my family for coming!

Also, i got Saints Row 2 as a birthday present and i love it. Aussie ninja with a chainsaw screaming "MOTHERF**KER!!" is priceless! And with some of the money i got i bought Fable II, Far Cry 2 and Dead Space and i just love them. I have completed SR2 and Fable II, and clocked in about 5 hours in both Dead Space and Far Cry 2.I'm stuck on Dead Space, because i've got 5 bullets left on the Plasma Cutter, low on health and a enemy i cannot kill because he keeps regenerating his wounds plus three other enemies attacking me, still one of the best games ever, the only survival horror game that beats Resident Evil 4.

And i'm not doing much missions in FC2, i usually freeroam around the island because it's so damn fun! Though i have done 9 missions. Map editor is a blast! For me it's the best FPS in a long time.


And i'm doing a review of Saints Row 2 and Fable II in some days, probably complete Dead Space first. Thanks for reading!

Bots in Multiplayer.

Right now i have really bad internet, and that means i can't play over Xbox LIVE or PSN. So i have to play all offline games, it isn't bad but after 3 weeks without online i'm starting to miss it. Luckily some games have "Bots"in multiplayer. Like Perfect Dark Zero and SSBB. Which brings me to the point where i think more games should have bots in multiplayer.


Let's look back in time, remember the Timesplitters series? That series had bots and it was a ton of fun, i miss games with bots. Sure it would hurt the numbers of people playing online but what for those without PSN or LIVE? Every game would have been better with bots, luckily Gears 2 and Killzone 2 will have bots. But Halo 3 could need bots, CoD 4 etc. etc....

So if more games had bots you wouldnt need to play with all the ass-tards online. It would perhaps change how many people plays online, but it would still be a great choice to include bots in multiplayer.

WarHawk, anyone?
