Best Buy just sold out of 360 sticks and I have a $100 gift card for them and would cut the cost in my favor. On the other hand, I don't want to wait to see if they will get in any more soon which most likely won't be the case. I may be able to gather some money and purchase it from Madcatz themselves right now. Question is, should I just get the stick now and have it in a couple days or hold out for however long best buy takes to get in more to save some money?
While typing this, I'm holding my friend in a headlock who told me to wait until I try out his fight stick and purchase mine the following day. At the time, Best Buy still had them. I woke up the next day to see that they just sold out. So now he suffers.
So, I was going to buy the TE fight stick for 360 yesterday but my friend says, "wait a day and come to my house to try it first before you buy it". So I go to look it up today from best buy's website and it's sold out. I would buy it somewhere else but I don't have the money. I'm planning on using gift cards and coupons to make up for it but now I have to wait until they get more in stock.
I'm pissed because there are tournaments coming up around my area for SFIV and I wanted to have the stick to practice a bit before going. I guess now I have to go and watch my friend play for however long it takes to get them sticks in. I may still enter the tournaments for fun if there is no fee, but I just don't feel confident enough that my skills are up to where they used to be, even if they were minor skills. I guess that's what you get when you to take advantage of the opportunity while it's still there.
WOOOOO. Yeah I just broke 10k gamerscore and it only took me 2 years to do it. The achievement that did it was On Instinct from Prototype which was completing the Mother Boss Battle. Pretty cool I must say.
I can't express how much fun I've been having while playing Prototype. This is just a fun video game. I am getting really close to completing the main missions and it is getting insanely hard. Totally worth my money.
For the past few days, I was looking on rockband.com to see what new DLC has been coming out and noticed that they released a 12 song Iron Maiden pack. I was thinking of getting it but don't know if I will like ALL of the songs. Did anyone get it? I might pick up a few tracks.
I'm 22 today. Yay? And drunk a little now so I dont' really know what is tis going to look lkie. Ummm. I still can't rent a car, but I can drink, smoke (i dont smoke), and other adult stufff still.
So yey I'm 22. Not a great age to be. I'm still in college, have 3 more years to go (hopefully) to get my bachelors and I'm a hardcore gamer. I really like my life though, not much to complain about andd that is an important thing. I might get prototype today. Some okay reviews on it and it still looks fun to play.
Now for me to chug wathr so i don't have a hangover. O yeah, go and see the movie The Hangoever, that movie is hilarious. Have a great day guys1
*Let me first say that I have not played the game, I have only watched someone else play a retail copy for a while*
To just get right into it here. I couldn't sleep last night so I went browsing around justin.tv for something to watch and found over 500 people watching this guy play Prototype. My first thoughts were, "Holy shit! There is so much chaos going on that it just looks like a blast to play.". So I stuck around to watch a little more.
What the guy was mostly doing was savagely destroying everything in his path, consuming other humans either to regenerate health or become them, and constantly having to rely on getting into a tank to take on what seems like the army most of the time. Something about constantly getting into a tank didn't seem like a fun way to always make the best of a situation, especially when the tank blows up and leaping onto the next one near by. To me, I thought that the "Prototype" was supposed to be this crazy ass thing that you became and gave you insane powers to annihilate everything in your path, even tanks. Granted, he could have been at an early point in the game and did not have these powers unlocked yet, which would make sense.
What I thought looked awesome, was the ability to run up buildings, holding a helpless lady while hoards of an army are unloading everything they've got at you, just to reach the top and throw the lady off to her death (which was freakin' hilarious). Also, the ability to glide in the air, shoot straight down onto a street filled with helpless humans and what looks to be an endless wave of taxis, to shoot tons of spikes out of the ground to slaughter everyone around you. There's something about creating so much chaos that not only is awesome to watch, really make me want to get my hands on this game when it comes out today? Tomorrow? I don't know.
I'm still waiting to see some reviews. It's 8:30am and there is only 1 review from the UK, which I can't read because it's in a magazine. That could mean something. Either this game is getting semi-good scores and not being allowed to show until a certain time or everyone is trying to catch up from E3 last week, which are my assumptions.
Lately, my internet has been super slow. Only 8 times faster than dial-up. Does anyone elses Comcast seem to be slow lately?
On a more frustrating note, I'm still trying to sell some of my 360 games. I'm actually really close to just trading them into GameStop, but that would just be messed up. I posted a thread on craigslist and got no replies. I was looking on cheapassgamer.com at their game trading forum, but don't really want to wind up with paypal currency. So what else is there to do?
Until I figure that stuff out, I guess I'll just keep playing games. I've been playing Killzone 2 lately and want to beat that game on elite after I beat it on veteran. I love that game because it is just fun to kill those Helgast biotches. I also would like to play more online, but I have to wait and see when my internet goes back to normal.
Also, an update from my previous blog, I didn't buy LittleBigPlanet. Why? Because I'm an idiot. No, but seriously, I had to wait until my credit card bill came to see how much money I'll have left over. I guess I just want to get this crap done with selling my games also before I go out and get new ones.
One last thing. E3 is over pretty much (thank God). The games I'm most looking forward to getting are (in no particular order):
Uncharted 2 PS3 (the demo they showed was amazing and I just beat the first one not to long ago)
Call of Duty MW2 PS3 (looks like it's more Modern Warfare and it's still going to kick ass)
Mass Effect 2 X360 (loved the first one so much and cannot wait to play 2. also, they made the game look awesome and have no texture pop in!)
Super Mario Galaxy 2 Wii (more Mario Galaxy, sweet!)
New Super Mario Bros. Wii (looks fun with 4 players, but I might not always have 3 other people to play with and may not be as awesome as it could be)
Final Fantasy XIII PS3 (looks like it will be an awesome rpg to play)
God of War III PS3 (more brutality, looked good but the visuals didn't really impress me. maybe I need to watch an HD video on it. other than that, can't wait!)
Gran Turismo 5 PS3 (I only have played GT3, which I loved, and this game should be the one to pull me back into racing)
The Last Guardian PS3 (watching that trailer made me feel emotional, which I can't recall anytime before this when a video game made me feel like that. there is something special about this game and cannot wait to see more of it)
Can't have a list of games I want without a short list of games that changed my mind about or made me go "What? Why?":
Left4Dead2 (I feel like I just got 1 yesterday. Already a sequal? Why not more DLC for 1? Doesn't make sense to buy this game for another $60 and only have 5 levels. Granted, 1 only had 4, but I got it for free so whatever.)
Halo 3 ODST (Halo just isn't Halo without Master Cheif to me. I didn't like the idea of switching to different soldiers and playing their parts as opposed to just playing through the game as the Rookie ODST. Then again, Halo 2 switched between Cheif and Arbiter, so maybe I'm jumping into an empty pool with this thought.)
99% of Nintendo's Press Conference (no explanation necessary)
PSP Go Price ($250! it's smaller, has no umd support and is more money? don't even tell me the 16gbs of memory is going to be that expensive to place in that product. no way am I getting that until it's around $150 or has more internal memory)
I'm probably leaving out some games, but this is getting really long for me, so I'll just stop there.
Anyways, I enjoyed watching all of the conferences and looking forward to playing most of these games in the future. How this blog got into E3 stuff is beyond me. Now I have to put all of these games into the tag line uggghhhh. Thanks for reading.
