Upcoming games I simply must have.


Before my 360 got the E73, I had recently finished Bioshock and really enjoyed it. So naturally I'm very excited for Bioshock 2 which should be coming soon.  
 
Another game I have on my mind is Modern Warfare 2, which if I get it, will be my first entry into the Call of Duty series. And it seems like a good time to start:D.   
 
Finally, Brutal Legend. Which is self-explanatory, I love metal, Jack Black kicks ass, I'm all for epic adventure games and hack and slashers, did I mention I love metal?
 
Besides that, I have no other games I'm really excited for. I do want 2 other games which I believe are being released in 2010, Metro 2033 The Last Refuge (post-apocolyptic shooter\survival horror) and Final Fantasy 13 (I'm an FF fan).

Why...just WHY.



 

 
 
Damn you to hell microsoft, build shit that doesn't break dammit.  
 
Anyways, does anyone (that lives in Europe) know the usual process of replacing your 360? Or does anyone (that lives anywhere) have any tricks etc. that provide temporary or even permanent solutions to the E73? I mean, I just need some help here is what I'm trying to say. This is just so sudden:(.

This is an AWESOME deal.

I love finding great deals on pretty much anything. My latest purchase:


Fuck yes. Only 40 bucks.

The best part is that my expectations for these games are not being dampened, I'm having a lot of fun with these so far (more so with Bioshock, I love it, Oblivion is pretty good but it's not the type of game I usually play).

10 Things I've learned so far from doing office work this summer.

  1. Microwavable foods are the shit.
  2. If all you need to do is show up to get the job, then you know this will be a laid back job.
  3. You just need to LOOK like you are doing something.
  4. Having to put in 180 hours for this summer hire program to earn 500 bucks is not as bad as it sounds.
  5. Appreciate sleep.
  6. 3 days a week, 5 hours a day, and then you wonder how your dad works about 7 hours a day, 5 or 6 days a week.
  7. Office work is mundane, incredibly easy, and takes forever.
  8. With about 30,000 papers or so sitting in boxes (probably more), you realize what happened to that tree in your backyard.
  9. Your I Pod is your best friend.
  10. You have what a few million americans want, a job of some kind.  Actually, you have what a few thousand americans want, a job of some kind that doesn't suck.




    and one more thing...

    I get a free tall bottle of iced tea to drink while I work. So it's official, my job is great:D.

    Does anyone else like the job they work at? I know I don't really have a "job" persay, this is just an apprenticeship, but I like it anyways:D.

I like...no screw that...I LOVE a good love story.

I'm 15 years old.

I'm a dude.

And I have a soft spot for love stories.

Just watched Let the Right One In (a horror\romance centered on the subject of vampires), and I have to say, I found it to be an excellent movie. My emotions are in freaken knots when I watch a relationship unfold like the one in this movie...feel like a wuss... (lets get one thing streight though, Twilight is a movie I found to be utter shit).

This natural feeling of mine is what makes me love games like Final Fantasy X, not just for it's great gameplay really, but the story really clasps onto me.

Is anyone else on GB like this?

Few songs make me cry.

I'm not sure if thinking of Michael Jackson's death had any contribution to how solemnly beautiful this song is, or that the fact the guitarist who composed this song has ALS and is reduced to only being able to move his eyes...

But I just cried, I cried a healthy stream after hearing this song. It's one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard.

MOTHER PUNCHER.

Change stand grow
These things you'll never be
Taste your fate
All that you'll ever be
A life love unconditional
A life love
Love unconditional

Chase
Chase 'em down string 'em up
Hate
Hate the ones who bring you down

  


Man this song is so awesome:P. Just gets me pumped.

RE5, I have finished it.

Fucking awesome game, nuff said.

Oh wait... no that is not all, I'm about to do something I haven't done in ages: I am going to write a review, a freaken review. It's been countless months since I wrote a review, since before I even joined Giant Bomb I wrote my last review (the Super Mario All Stars review does not count, that is simply a revised review from when I was on Gamespot.)

So yeah, in a nutshell, those who have played RE4 and enjoyed it have no reason to not buy this game. Disregard the demo for this game, it does not scratch the surface on how fun this game is, it's awesome stuff, so if you're on the fence then I am saying right now do not fear, this game really IS good.

Now, in any case is it better than RE4? Well my answer to that question is that both games are seriously damn good, RE5 is really a better looking RE4 in a different premise. Each to his own opinion though, I still love RE4, and I love this game as well. Maybe I'll replay through RE4 yet again (this would be my 9th or 10th time beating it) and see how it stacks up to RE5.

All right then... going to sleep now. Got end of the year projects and other school-related crap to worry about >___>.

Oh hell yes.

Resident Evil 5 is mine.

I better not be dissapointed.

I've waited a long time to play this.

So now you know what I'm going to be doing for a while.

And by the way, anyone who has this, how was it? Just want some impressions.
