It's been awhile

Wow, has it been awhile or what? My last blog was over a year ago, and that was when Red Dead Redemption came out. What has kept me so busy you ask? Well I left home to enlist in the Army, so I've been going through that whole deal for the past year or so. I'm currently stationed in Italy right now with the 173rd Airborne, so that's pretty awesome. More info on that later if anyone wants to know. For now...we talk gaming.

Been playing a lot of Black Ops and Gears 3. I beat Gears 3 a few days ago, and was mostly satisfied with the ending. Obviously, I'm a little disgruntled over some of the unanswered questions that they leave at the end, and hopefully those will be answered in extra content, even though they SHOULD have been in the full game. Also it should have been a bit longer, perhaps adding a segment or two in order to answer more of the questions I had. A few of the questions would be: why does the Locust Queen look human? what the fuck are the Locust and where do they really come from? How did Adam Fenix meet the Locust Queen and how well did they know each other? I also keep wondering if the Locust Queen is Marcus' mom maybe? Is it just me, or is that seeming more and more likely.

Haven't been able to play my PS3 a lot lately because I left my PS3 cord back in the states. Probably going to pick that up this week at the post office because my parents sent it to me. Once I get it though, I'll probably finish LA Noire and Deus Ex: Human Revolution and post thoughts on those games.

Also, stoked to announce I got Resident Evil 4 off of the XBOX Live Marketplace, and it's totally rekindled my love of the game. It's really reminded me how great the game is, and I absolutely love playing as Leon. He's such an awesome character and I really hope he's in future Resident Evil games. I NEED a current-gen RE game with fucking Leon in it. And Claire. I think they'd make a nice couple if they got paired together. After I beat RE4 though, I'm going to play through RE5 again on my PS3.

That's basically what's up in my gaming world lately. I get a lot of down time here in Italy, but right now my battalion is getting ready to go to Germany for a training exercise that should last most of October. It's supposed to be cold and we're supposed to ruck everywhere and do simulated combat operations so I'm just going to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and grit it out to the end. I get back on the 25th of October, I think, so the blogging and gaming will resume.

Most of you people don't remember me but I have 14 followers so I must have made some friends right? I look forward to reading blogs, following more people, and hopefully getting more followers. Until next time, and thanks for reading :P
