Been awhile since I wrote a blog, and I got a lotta shit to get off my chest:
2011 What a fucking amazing year for games. I say this every year, thinking the next won't top it, but this year is shaping up to be the best year for games ever. And I haven't even played Child of Eden yet.
America I went to America for 8 weeks. Road trip from San Fran to New York with a friend of mine. But that's another blog.
Assassin's CreedI finally got this game. I haven't played it yet, and I probably won't for some time, but it's there waiting for me til the next game drought. I've been putting it off for years, partly because I only owned a PS3 at the time of release and didn't want an inferior version, and partly because of how repetitive it's supposed to be.
Also, I finally got
Dead Rising This game, along with Alan Wake, is what I bought an Xbox for. I'd been searching for ages for a brand new, black label copy of it. I finally got lucky the other day and found one for $16. Thing is, it's NTSC and my console is PAL. So like Assassin's Creed, Dead Rising will have to wait for some time.
DisgaeaThe upcoming release of Digaea 4 reminded me of something I've been wondering for years: just how the fuck do you pronounce it? Dis-gay-a?
Footy[This will go over most non-Australians heads]
As I get older, I find myself liking footy more and more. Perhaps it's because the Bombers are doing ok this year, perhaps it's because I graduated high school and grew out of the jocks vs. skaters mentality. All I know is I'm really fucking hyped for the finals.
Mana BarThis finally opened up when I was overseas, and it's awesome. Any fellow Melbournians been? Since I got back I've been there 3 times already.
It's a bit cramped, it closes too early and the line is fucked, but video games + cocktails is always great night out.
I've been flogging this song lately--on the way to work, on the way home, as my alarm clock--I can't get enough of it.
Also, I just heard this on the radio:
Another vinyl I recently got is Earthless' Sonic Prayer. I saw them live back in January and they melted my face.
That's a pretty eclectic taste if I say so myself. As soon as I get my tax return I'm gonna buy a 1200 and some HD 25s to listen to all my new LPs, if you know what I'm talking about.
