HT's Ramblings 9/19/2011

So, it's been since the first week in January that I have done a blog post and I felt that it was time to bring one to you, my followers. In the past 8 months, we have gone through the summer movie season, the Great Gaming Drought of 2011 and are about to start the Gaming Monsoon of 2011 as well. Let's get started.

In the world of video games, I have been somewhat busy and in other ways not busy at all. In the time since my last post, I have beat L.A. Noire, Trenched, Renegade Ops, X-Men Origins: Wolverine Uncaged Edition and probably some other games that I'm forgetting. I was able to S-Rank Pac Man Championship Edition DX, Trenched and Torchlight. I now have 9 S-Ranks and I'm planning on making Wolverine my 10th, but that will probably wait since we are going to be deluged with games in the next few months. Starting tomorrow, I'll be buying 6-7 games in the next three months. Gears 3 starts that off, then it will move to Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3, and on November 15th, the trifecta of Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Saints Row The Third and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary. I'm finally taking the plunge and ordering my games from Amazon now so I don't even have to go to stores and buy them. I preordered Battlefield today and it seems like Amazon isn't doing the $10 credit when preordering a new game which kind of stinks. I'm hopeful that all of these games will be great, and based on the pedigree and background of these studios, they should all be excellent.

In movie news, the summer movie season was awesome and definitely better than 2010. The summer started off with a bang in Fast Five and kept going with Thor, X-Men First Class, Captain America, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Harry Potter 7 Part 2. For me, Fast Five was the best movie of the summer and I would highly suggest checking it out if you are a fan of stupid action movies. Overall, the only two movies that I saw that were stinkers were Green Lantern and Cowboys and Aliens. Neither of the movies lived up to what I had hoped they would be but overall this summer was much improved from last summer, when it was only Inception that stood out in my mind.

With all of these games that I've talked about in this blog, I'm going to be giving more detailed opinions of them over the next few weeks since I'll need to start beginning to see what I'll be doing for Game of the Year since those discussions will be upon us in just a little bit. Until next time.
