Survival Horror Realm
That's my Blog... Read, leave comments. Thank you
First of all, yeah, I haven't did a blog post in two years.
Talking about Microsoft's conference. Yeah it wasn't good I agree but was it that bad? I see people bashing Microsoft all over the place now. I'll agree with some thing - first part of it was great. Halo (although I'm not a big fan of it), new Gears of War, Fable 3 oh and lets not forget Metal Gear Rising which I liked, a lot. And then...
And then MS kicked off with Kinect (is this how it's called?). They showed some casual titles, kid stuff and... most of the stuff seen on Wii, don't you agree? As of right now, I'm not sure I'm getting Kinect but hey! Everyone has it's own opinion? Mine might change after more hardcore games for it'll show up. I'm just keeping an open mind.
So that's pretty much it. Anyone else feel like it wasn't THAT bad?
I'll try to do some more proper blogging later.
I can't believe that summer is going to the end. It was totally short, I hardly did all the things I wanted to do but oh well, what can I do about it. This September I'm starting the new life (or at least what I think will be a new life). University. That's right. And I'll be studying IT. I can't imagine how my summers will look after this one. There will be plenty of work and none time for yourself. At least I'm happy that I spent this summer usefully.
OK. I feel like playing a video game today. It will either be Everything or Nothing or Da Vinci Code. This one isn't good but I bought it while visiting France and it was very cheap.
Alright, that's it for now. Oh and if I will not make a blog after two days - 17th of August is my birthday. Hooray!
Hey everyone, sorry for not being a lot here lately.
Good news is - I finally finished my exams. Now I am free and I will have more time for everything, GameSpot included. I wanted to ask you guys one thing.
Anyone here has an active union about Legacy consoles? Such as Genesis, SNES. I am really into old-school now and I'd love to chat about it. I am playing NES, Genesis and SNES now more than I play on my PS2. Those consoles remind me good old days. Hardcore gaming. And to play all those titles beaten 15 years ago, it's wonderful feeling.
So again, if anyone has a union about SNES, NES, Genesis - let me know. Or... if you want to - we can form our own
Your biggest fan,
Oh, hi there readers. Long time no blogging.
I'm soon to experience the two most painful weeks of my lfie so far. School finishing exams by which will depend my future at university. I hope to take IT course (as my presumed exam grades will be enough for that) but eh, life will tell. So yes, this is basically why I do not post at the unions for quite some time as well as your blogs. Studying takes all the free time and I soo hate that.
Now to my blog topic. Why I don't feel like at home here? Well that's mainly because that everyone here have current gen systems and I don't. All the news are about XBox 360, PS3 and Wii and I have neither so there is no point following them. I hope to buy PS3 and refresh my gaming experience a bit but I'm not ready yet. I just don't feel like this is the time yet.
Not sure if everything stated here is clear but well, fair enough.
Oh, if anyone here is interested in anime and didn't found himself / herself a community yet - feel free to join www.aninma.com. We are new but I think quite fast growing community and we appreaciate every new member. There is a little bit more of me there.
Cheers, see you in my or your's blog!
Well there is game going on where you have to say some 5 things others might not know about you and here I was tagged by DarkNeoBahamut. So let's beggin, shall we?
1. I'm not by any chance from United States nor United Kingdom. I live in a small but cool little country in a middle on Europe. And it's caled lithuania.
2. Despind being quite young i already work as a radio DJ at one of the radio stations.
3. I'm a Linux user which mean I don't have any Windows installed on my computer.
4. The music I like to listen is Hardcore / Terrorcore / Speedcore (mainly all that stuff which f$%ks your mind).
5. And for those who might did not know - I'm a chronic Resident Evil fan.
Just opened GameSpot and noticed "1" next to "Updates" of my tracked games. And here that was - 5 new screenshots of my HIGHLY anticipated title - Yakuza 2. And that's it. Just some screenshots. At least they could announce it. Still at TBA... Will it ever hit Europe or USA? (I'm saying this because I'm from Europe and I could at least import that game). Nothing else but waiting...
Oh and check out my photo (more at my MySpace):
Fancy photo shoot, eh?
Hey, what's up guys? As you can see I'm actually doing this kind of blog, probably because I'm bored. So, uh, anyway - here it goes.
#10 - Starfox Adventures, 2002 (GS Score - 8.3, Great)
The only GC game in my "Top-ten of all time" the main reason why I put this one here - it reminded me how much fun real adventure games are. Okami for PS2 was close to this and I don't really like Zelda (I own most of them but they aren't my favorite) so this one wonthe 10th place here. Hooray Starfox.
# 9 - Quake, 1996 (GS Score - 9.3, Superb)
Back in the days this PC title changed my life. What a 3-dimentional shooter, totally awesome. I can't describe how I felt by first playing it. The graphics were unseen, the gameplay was awesome and the difficulty was challenging. Big up ID Software, you changed my point of view to FPSs.
# 8 - Final Fantasy X, 2001 (GS Score - 9.3, Superb)
I believe all of you are going to say - what the... only 8th place..? The heck..? Yep, no higher. And that's just because I don't like RPGs that much, I only played few of them in my lifetime. IMO RPGs consume too much time. But I don't regret spending any of it on this one. Word.
# 7 - God of War, 2005 (GS Score - 9.3, Superb)
It is absolutely brilliant for it's type of game. And I can't imagine GOW being any better. I must tell you guys that I acidently picked it for 17 euros while visiting France. I was like - well, it may come out good, 17 euros is cheap anyway. nd it was a blast. Playing the PSP God of War at the moment but it do not bring the same feel as this one back in the days.
# 6 - Commandos 2: Men of Courage, 2001 (GS Score - 8.8, Great)
I must ask Pyro Studios. Why? Why have you ruined this great game franchise? Oh well, not ofr me to judge. But this is still one of the greatest games of all time. It brought a lot of challenge, thrilling gameplay and great story. Oh, and beside that - really good value with only having 10 missions. Although those missions were HUGE.
# 5 - Tony Hawk's underground, 2003 (GS Score - 8.9, Great)
I like skating. I like skating video games. I like great stories. And then it mixes together, it comes out great.
# 4 - Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, 1999 (GS Score - 8.8, Great)
STAAAAAARRSS!!! Resident Evil game, enough said, all of them were great. But I feel something different for this one, just hardto say what's that. You know that feeling right?
# 3 - SSX 3, 2003 (GS Score - 9.0, Superb)
Do you know what the "open-air" feels like? Now imagine thrilling ride down the mountain, 30 minutes of unstopable combo, no loading times and great music. Personally I'm not big fan of sport games but this one amazed me big time. No idea how much time I've spent playing this game and I believe I'll still gonna play a lot of it. There is a reason why I put this into the 3rd place. Btw, Nate's the best.
# 2 - Doom, 1993 (GS Score - Unrated)
Now this game shaped the future of gaming and my mind. Super fast paced shooter. Ok right now it may be nothing (not for me!) but back in the days it was REVOLUTIONARY. Multi-floored levels... Oh and my favorite "Nightmare!" skill level which asks:
"Are you sure? This skill level isn't even remotely fair." (It's hard with enemies respawning, no kidding)
Bring it on!
# 1 - Resident Evil, 1996 (GS Score - 8.2, Great)
I don't wanna talk about this one much. We all know that this is definitely the greatest game ever released on any system available, lol. No, really, this game introduced me to survival horror, to the Tyrant, Albert Wesker and T-Virus (check my username once again, lol). Yep, that's true.
Honourable Mentions (in no particular order) -
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty,
Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Content Under Pressure,
Silent Hill 2,
Well, that's all I wanted to write this time you guys. Leave some feedback if you read that far.
Hey again, how's stuff on your side?
Well, as for me, I'm counting last hours of the weekend (tic-toc, tic-toc, I still have about 3 hours roughly, lol). And as I think about the lest few days, I don't think I did anything useful. What exactly i did? Let me break it down and know by myself, lol.
Friday, I came back home from school. Happy about how the weekend has started. 04:00 PM I'm off to hang out with friends, 10:00 PM we're off to the (Drum & Bass / Hardcore) party. Back home at 07:00 AM (Yay, it's Saturday, lol). Few hours of sleep, few hours at friends place and here we have 00:00 Sunday, lol. Again some of this, some of that, some of sleep. And here i am, using PC, thinking about another work week which is coming sooner than I would want, lol. Did nothing useful indeed.
Played some Castlevania on PSP and installed WarCraft 3 again. I just can't live without that game. Hope to find time and play some multiplayer tomorrow. Oh well if I won't, I can still live with that, lol.
Cheers, have fun.
Your pal, T.
So yeah, hi!
I wish ya'll are going to have a happy new year party or whatever you are going to have, just have fun! It's 6:45PM on Dec 31 here and I'm off to meet some friends and go hang out, have fun, etc. I wish you all will have much better year than these one were (I'm not saying these were bad, just hoping next one's going to be even better!) and well, see ya all here next year!
Your biggest fan,
Hey everybody. Just dropping by to... ummm... well, I'm a bit late, but still I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, spent more time with your families, people you love (the one which I actually hadn't done). Well, you can keep on gaming now, just promise me that Christmas is not the only day you remember your family, friends, loved ones and spend more time with them. Deal? Ok.
As long as it's mainly gaming related website I'll let you guys know that I've got a bunch of games recently, and next week I might get some more time to play them, so uh, I'll keep you informed on how it goes. It's crazy to see like - 10 games still in their wrapings, but this is just how I don't have time for gaming! Damn that school and work thing, lemme live alright!
Alright, peace, T.
With all this mess going on you might think that I'm leaving GS. Nah not true, just opened an account in 1Up and letting you all know. I'll be here and there, expect to see some of me on GS.
Ok, so quite much time have passed after Wii launched. It's still on a high demand, it's still selling great and I can even imagine what's gonna happen during holiday season. I was interested in Wii, I thought about getting it, but as for every console I purchase I let it start off, see how it goes, I'm not one of those first day buyers (ah well, I got PSP next week it came out, but eh, only time). So as for Wii - firstly I thought it's a neat thing and I was definitely getting it, now, after year have passed I have another point of view. Just please, don't call me hater.
Ok, last gen wasn't the most successful for Nintendo. Game Cube wasn't the best selling console of the generation, but myself - I loved it. It was as good as best selling PS2 for me. I like the thing that it was normal console with plenty of good games (Pikmin, Resident Evil series, Metroid - I could go on and on). Normal console, see where I'm going?
WiiMote, that's the main reason I'm not getting Wii anymore. I'm just a casual gamer who wants to play games after hard day of work, why do I have to wave things? I just wanna relax! And that's not because I have no strength or I'm fatty or... I dunno (I'm a successful power lifter who goes gym 4 times a week, whatever, that's not the topic anyway). It's just not how gaming is suppossed to be, why do we have to invent something new then it's already awesome? Let's take keyboard plus mouse set or a Dual Shock controller which kicks for 12 years and still is comfortable. What I wanted to say here, I've been gaming for 15 years and I don't find waving things in front of your screen funny neither relaxing (I hope, I'm not the only one).
What's the point of this paragraph?
- If Nintendo would released Wii with a standard controller (like Game Cube had, etc), my Wii would be under TV set, hooked up, right now.
WiiFit, ok this is not a major issue, I just wanted to ask - why? Why would we need a balance board for exercising at home. Come on, Video game consoles are for playing games and having fun, not for getting fit. Well just thinking out loud.
All I had to say right now, flame me, I don't really care too much. Just to conclude I want to say - if Nintendo would launched Game Cube 2 of some sort, I'd bought it.
Wii is just not for me. Not for everyone.
Hey there, what's up everybody? Anyway, I'll go straight to the point. During last... 6 (?) months I haven't played any video game. I played a game of Tekken (for PSP) once a week but I don't think that counts (few battles are no longer than 10 minutes, I can't count that as gaming ). And here I got my hands on Silent Hill Origins! Now that's masterpiece, now I understood what gaming is about again. I was getting all the games I "might" be interested in later so I built up some "now playing". Might actually go and play some PS2 or GC games (as for new titles - I know people at game stores, I can get games quite cheap ). One is for sure, all games who are in "now playing" right now will be finished, beaten brutally. Right now, I just have too much work to allow myself play games...
Ok in other news I just wanted you guys know that I was shown on a national TV yesterday that was just for a 15 seconds or so, but still, for me it's something. Well that was connected to my present job I work at (one blog down, I work at the radio station). So yeah, I'm becomming more and more popular 8)
So again, what's up with you guys?
Hey, so ummm how'd ya been? As for myself - still puzzled but I should say - getting better. I didn't got into gaming just yet (well I do play PSP from time to time, it's best handheld ever but maybe let's just leave this for another time) so I can't give you much of an update from my life as a gamer.
But i can't let my GameSpot profile die, can I? So here again, some updates from my social life (I don't have any other blog to post such things anyway ).
So what's up with a title of this blog? I started to work in a radio station. How cool is that? As for now I have 1h of 'live' per week. The time might increase as I'll work further on. I host a show about electronic music (such as hip-hop, hardcore, etc), talking about it's history, producers, inviting artists for a chat and such. I hope it's going to be some great experience for both me and listeners.
"This is T-Virus and you're listening "700MB of Music". Stay tuned." (nah it's not like that..)
Well, enough for this time. Cheers.
Well first off all, hi everybody. I wanted to post this blog week ago but somehow I couldn't managed to write it down, check if everythings alright and then submit. But here it comes now (I hope it eventually will).
Okay, so what's the point of such blog? Thoughts, -- "like we'd care what are you thinking about". Hmmm.. Ok I'll try to put my feelings as accurate as I can.
Let me start with a confession. I've never been best guy to be friend with. I lack a lot of things good guy must have. First of all, I live my life for the moment. I don't care what happened week ago (well as for current incident I kinda care) and I don't bother thinking about what's gonna be after two days. I only care for this moment. If it's good then I'm good. If it's bad - I'm depressed. Yep, here how it goes. Simple, eh? And I'm not proud of it as it had put me into bad situation right now (as it did time ago, and before that... I could go on and on). The main thing is -- I only notice what I had after I lose it. All I cared in my life was -- parties, getting *kchemw@#$edkchem* and... yeah. As my life went on I was more than happy. And now -- BANG. Closest person I had left me. To be accurate, a girlfriend. The reason why she did that was -- "I don't like your attitude". Woah, after these words I understood that my life is not funny anymore. She was the person why I lived this life. Finally I understood that getting *kchemw@#$edkchem* is not the main thing in this planet. The main thing is to have someone who you care about and who cares about you. That's the point of all mankind isn't it? Besides that I realized that I can change. It's not like I'll be this for all my life. The saying "be yourself" does not suit me. Because real me is just a crazy dude, who cares about no one but himself. Ok.. I started to miss the point. Anyway thing is -- after this incident I'm changing the way i live for good, don't really know how but I'm.
I still have one little chance to get 'er back. I asked her for a coffe at my place and she was like -- "sure why not". Thing is... should I tell her everything I feel for her or.. just let it slip and end it? I never felt so much love and respect for a person before... If I'd let it slip it'd take me some time to recover but eh, I could live with it. And telling everything I feel... It's so f%$kin' hard. It's not like -- "dang, I'm sorry, I love you alot, let's get together, shall we?". Now that'd be cool.
I'm on the horns of a dilemma...
Oh, God. I wrote like 10 million words here. Sure is my longest blog. Did anyone read all this? Anyway take cares everybody. Gimme hints or something. I'm in tough situation right now.
If I just wrote pile of nonsense - let me know.
Your biggest fan,
I'm not leaving GameSpot... That's for sure.
