So in keeping with doing things when I have the time. I thought another blog was in order.
Gaming wise has been pretty quiet recently. I have completed Scott Pilgrim Vs The World on Xbox Live Arcade with Scott and have started a new character file with Knives Chau. I may write a review for this at some point but I feel compelled to try more with another character before really giving the game a review as it would feel harsh to not get another characters approach into the mix incase there is more depth to the level system than how it seems on the surface.
I have also been playing a bit of Chris Sawyers Locomotion on PC when I literally have no energy to be doing anything else. Its a good time killing game and the mod support out there is really strong community wise. There are real life train, tram, truck etc updates as well as scenarios and the like. Boring to some but for me it really adds to the depth of this game.
Marvel Versus Capcom 3 is out soon in Europe and I just ordered the game today. Apparently it is on its way as I have a despatch email but I can not say if this will be arriving quicker than I expected or whether a release day arrivial will happen.
I have been watching more films and TV recently as my time focus shifts from gaming a bit (I am still a gamer but I tend to do more of it at a weekend as after work I tend to just be in the mood to watch a film, read or listen to music than doing anything more energy consuming). I have seen Black Swan in the cinema as well as Tron Legacy (I may have mentioned that in the last blog, I can not remember). Black Swan is unusual as it is a film I did not really think would interest me but the character development is really excellent and the story has some interesting twists. I would not reccomend seeing this film to people without an open mind or people of a younger age as there are a few scenes that are a bit mature perhaps.
I have been watching some of my DVD's as well recently and have seen the recent Batman Begins and Dark Knight. I know actually get the references to "Why so serious" and "I'm not wearing hockey pads" so expect me to be blurting them out more and more.
My recent purchases include SALT (I kept looking at the film in the shops and it sounded interesting but over the weekend I decided to take the plunge). I have also got Hot Fuzz (as Edgar Wright interests me since watching Scott Pilgrim, I like his attention to detail and he seems to get good work out of the films he has made so I am watching a few to see how they are). I also picked up About Schmidt as it looked interesting and a friend wanted a film in a multibuy deal so I got this to share the cost.
I have recently read through the Scott Pilgrim books. I was supprised by how much I liked it, because graphic novels have not really been something I have paid attention to before but after several reccomendations I have given it a go and liked it. I may look out for similar things in the future but I am open to suggestions (although I did not enjoy The Watchmen, I like something a bit more light hearted. Watchmen is good but seems a tad too serious in what it approaches to me). I have also got The Beach to read through still, I keep getting bits of it done but I should really have read it before watching the film.
I am looking to get Mr Nice next as the book sounds interesting after looking at some reviews online.
Other than that nothing really has changed. I got the new Robbie Williams album (the best of collection thing) again in a multibuy offer as a friend wanted another album so I got this to share the expense and it looked good at the time.
I have been a bit quiet on the old posting side recently. This is nothing personal, I read the boards from unions to the general games and uk Gamespot boards but I infrequently post as I only do so if I feel I have something to add.
As allways I am open to feedback from this blog, any suggestions for books and films will be taken on board and gaming wise I am on Xbox Live usually on the weekend or when I am off work. Anyway thanks for reading.
