Wellll yea it sure has been a while but now I'm finally done with my fall semester at school :D Just finished my last final of the week! It feels great to finally be done. One step closer to the end.
Well, gaming wise I've been hitting up Left 4 Dead like nobody's business. I've got all but two achievements (The 53,000+ kills and beating all campaigns on Expert) and I've been working on em for a while, mostly the first one. The first campaign in expert took me and my friends between 5 and 6 hours and we haven't started the other three. Definitely getting my money's worth out of this game! It's great fun and the versus mode keeps me coming back for more.
As for my other games, I've gotten all 1000/1000 points in Call of Duty: World at War and my friends have stopped playing multiplayer so I think I'm going to sell it. I can still get most of my money back. Rock Band 2 has hit the backburner but I'm definitely going to start hitting it up more over break. I've been going back to Gears of War 2 as well trying to pick up some more achievements in multiplayer. They're pretty beastly hard.
Sooner or later I'm going to come back around to Assassin's Creed and finish up the stupid flag collecting on that, and I plan on getting Saints Row 2 and maybe Banjo Kazooie: N&B around Christmas.
Oh yea, and I'm selling my Wii and Wii Fit and everything I have related to them. Didn't take long after getting Wii Fit, eh? It's just not getting used enough. Anyways. Not doing a GotY list or anything like that. I think it's a waste of time to do it by oneself. A group is best because not everyone can play every game.
Meh, MGS4 is overrated. Just kidding. Haven't even played it :D. Anyways don't trouble yourself on one game. You can only judge what you have played so you shouldnt have to go out of your way to make "the" comprehensive list...
So yea. Getting Rock Band 2, Left 4 Dead, Call of Duty: WaW, and Gears 2 all in the same month was a bad idea.
I'm pretty much addicted.
Problem is there's still 15 or so games that I have a hankerin to play. It never ends! Good thing Christmas and the Christmas break is right around the corner. That means lots more free time :D
I'm probably playing CoD the most, trying to finish up the campaign on veteran and pick up all the achievements along the way. I'd also like to Prestige once in the multiplayer versus mode. The games fun but it really feels quite empty. There's just a glaring lack of "wow" moments to give the game oomph in the campaign.
Left 4 Dead is amazing I just don't play it as frequently because I only play when I can play with a squad of three of my friends. Playing lone wolf gets rather dull in that game. But in co-op it is by far the most enjoyable.
Rock Band 2 is everything I thought it would be. Having a blast with it but I haven't been playing it as much as i would like to.
And Gears of War 2, while great, has lost my attention temporarily. I am for sure going to return to it though to complete the Insane campaign difficulty. The multiplayer versus in GoW2 is rather lackluster for me unless I'm playing with a squad of friends, so I kind of shy away from it unless others are playing.
On another note, I purchased the pilot episode to Crusoe, the new NBC (I think) show. I watched it tonight on high def thanks to the oh-so-wonderful Xbox Live marketplace and thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend it and hope to see great things out of it in the future. Anyone else seen it? They have an awesome cast and great editing. Also, the location they film at is incredible.
Well, that about sums everything up! Been a lot going on in the past week. My wife's car was killed a few days ago. Waiting on insurance... Long story. In summation: there is another dead deer somewhere on the highway. x.x
For sure. I've pretty much decided to avoid a post about my top games of the year for this reason. All it seems to do is start arguments x.x It's fun to see what other people pick, though. Surprises, you say? O.o
Dude, games are still chainsaw fests. The shotgun does not help. Sometimes you get lucky, but ultimately the lancer wins. As for your main topic, the matchmaking is embarassingly bad. The only way it works is with a fulll party. then it takes half a second
