*Edit* *Don't worry about me. I'm fine and nothing super serious is going on so everything is okay. I'll just have a lot on my plate for a long time and it has to do with setting myself up for the future.*
I just wanted to write this blog to say that I'm not going to be logging on here for a very long time. I don't want to say ever again because I don't know what is going to happen. There are things in my life that I need to give more attention to than video games and it's going to hit me harder than ever very soon. Even though I will always be playing games, I just won't have any time to do any of this stuff anymore.
So with that said, I would just like to say that it was nice meeting you all. You may have noticed that I deleted yous off my 360 friends list because my live is going to run out soon and I probably can't renew it because I won't have the money or time. Nothing personal. Take care and live great lives.
Shadow Complex has to be one of the best games to come out in a very long time. It's pretty much Super Metroid but with real people. It's actually a lot easier than Super Metroid to me because it actually maps out where you are supposed to go, rather than me wandering around and then going to a place I can't get out of because I missed something. Maybe I'm just bad at Metroid games, but Shadow Complex makes this style of game really easy and addicting and I can't put it down.
Besides that, I bought CoD WaW on Monday? I think it was Monday. I really like that game. Makes everything feel fresh even though it's basically the same as 4.
Today, well technically yesterday because it's almost 2am, I played through TMNT and recorded my run on survival mode to show people how easy it really is to get that achievement. Playing with 4 people total can really give you some trouble. So I'll post the first video here and if you want to see the rest, check out my YouTube page because no one has videos of this run yet except me. Enjoy.
I'm getting pretty bored with my summer already. I wish school would start so I would have something to do you know? I started an intense workout regimen for the month of august which I'm currently trying to lose about 18 pounds. Today is the first day and I am stoked to see if I can do it before Fall semester.
In game related activity, I've been streaming on my justin.tv channel for the past couple of nights different games since my internet has been working again. I've streamed some MvC2, Gears 2, Monster Rancher 2 and tonight, Final Fantasy VII. I'm determined to beat FFVII again in a couple of days because I just like that game. I'll be streaming tonight at 9pm est. Make sure you come by and chat it up.
So I found GH2 for 360 at gamestop for $13 and picked it up a few days ago. I finally beat the game on expert. I never thought I would be able to 5 star free bird on the first try. I guess it was just bound to happen sometime.
I'm so happy.
Now on to beating easy and medium and trying to get 5 stars on the rest of expert for achievements. Going to be tough.
This game is more addicting than I though it'd be. I used to play back in the day and this game is the perfect way for me to casually play some Magic without spending a whole lot of money on cards again. One thing that bothers me a little is that you can't build a deck from scratch, but that doesn't really bring down the experience that much. I probably wouldn't have bought it if my friends didn't buy it, knowing that we all played Magic and are not always together but now can play over Live.
I recommend you pick this game up if you don't want to spend a whole lot of money on cards.
Also, I just want to say that I might be done blogging for a while. I need to get away from old habits to make sure I can make new ones. So just sitting on the computer when I have nothing to do needs to stop. I'll be playing video games a lot still, like I always have, but doing things that lead to me wasting time needs to stop.
Not a whole lot has happened since my last blog. I have been playing Street Fighter IV a bunch now because I am trying to learn Abel. He is a pretty fun character to play but is really hard to master. Going from characters that are similar to Ryu to playing an Abel is a huge adjustment.
To help me get used to playing as Abel, I was fortunate enough to pick up a TE FightStick. The day after I posted my last blog, I woke up, saw gamestop had them in stock, and went to my nearest one in record time. I asked the dumbass, "Do you have any TE fightsticks for the 360?" He goes in the back and pulls one out and says, "We had this one in for a week and you are the first person to ask for it."
Hearing him say that really got to me. I know that I've checked gamestop's website a few days prior to getting the stick and they never displayed any information about having them in stock. To me, that just comes off as lazy. If you are looking for a stick and no gamestop shows they are in stock, call the store anyway because you might get lucky.
