Arthusbuttkick's Epic, Fantastic, Cool, Amazing, Blog of Awesomeness
Greetings. My name is Arthusbuttkick. okay not really, but it stuck. Big fan of PC gameing and RPGs. You can find me at the following sites: Youtube as Arthusbuttkick, My web site Titanscreation.weebly.com, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. With all due respect, Silas Coggeshall
What up people! lol It has been quite a while since I've bloged or read anyones writing. I got my 360 for Christmas and about when I stoped bloging I got a good number of games. I guess I'll give a few updates on some random things I've been up to. About a month ago I started back up on a old hobby. My unlcle got my started on painting miniatures. I have reallly enjoyed it and find that it takes my nerdyness to a whole new level.
With video games becoming more accepted it's hard to be a nerd/geek. lol
So with this new hobby, video gaming, World of Warcraft, and various get togethers I've been quite busy. lol If you want to so more miniatures I have painted go check out my web site.
Quick pic of my Miniature Painting studio. As you can see I've spent a little money on it so I've not gotten AS many more games.
With me spending so much time painting I haven't been doing much drawing or sketching in a while. The only one I've really done is this quick sketch of Liara from Mass Effect.
It obviously needs a bit of work, but I'm rather pleased with how it is turning out so far.
And speaking of Mass Effect I got all 3 of the Mass Effect games last week. I have seen a few friends play and thought it looked pretty good. Then I bought all three, started playing, and fell in love. I've always loved just about all the game Bioware. Especially Knights of the Old Republic. I've got to the 2d ME and hve recruted 3 party members. I also got the Cerberus Network key code for free with my copy of Mass Effect 2. Just something for you people who payed $20 for it to get all jealous over. lol
When I get paid I'm going to get some Microsoft points and get the Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC so I can continue the Liara romance sub-plot from the first game.
So in the social gaming world of mine my aunte VideoGamerNerd got Silent Hill Downpour and me and a few friends have been getting together and taking turnes playing through it. Been one of my favorite horror games ever and Downpour is one of my favorite Silent Hill games. To read up on more read this review I wrote.
Here is a short video of me and the gang playing Downpour.Next on the list of horror is the HD collection. I've never played the third so it should be fun. Also aother thing I love about Downpour is this easter egg I found. You can climb up a fire escape and go into the appartment from SH 4 the room.
So as for the rest of this blog I will simply give you a quick run down of what I've been up to.
Another gaming sage I've played through and also love. Fable.
Another excellent game, Betman: Arkham Asylum. Really want to get the GOTY that's coming out at the end of this month.
And last, but not least I have reserved Assassin's Creed 3.
Looks pretty awesome. Anyway I'll just clock out now. TY for reading.
Tonight I'll be going through Halo 3 with 2 of my friends and going after every campaing achievement. We start at 6:30 this Friday night, and we won't quit till we have all the campaign achievements. It's gonna be a long night. lol I would have my legandary achievements of halo reach, but I laged out on 2 or 3 levels and haven't gotten around to replaying them yet.
So as of late I have added a few new videos to my youtube channel.
Awesome Skyrim compilation. you'll love this one.
Weird Oblivion Glitch. You'd think this would happen in Skyrim....
Also I didn't think it was true, but apparently there are still people who have not yet played skyrim. So for those people ifyou are interested here is a video I made of the opening quest.
The character I used in the Unbound vid I'll soon be using to make some video walk throughs of Skyrim quests and dungeons. Should be pretty fun. I'm not sure when I'll get around to it though. :/
I also have not ordered my miniatures yet. It should be very soon now though. Can't waitto use them in my next D&D campaign. The one I'm ordering now are a new plastic line of unpainted miniatures so they are a lot cheeper. It should give me plenty to work with so I can impove my mini painting skills.
(I'll be ordering about 18 miniatures. )
So there really isn't too much to say. Keepin it short today. One more thing. Along with the number of Skyrim videos I'm working on, I'm also working on a real life air horn prank compilation. Just need some good footage of me scaring people with my trusty air horn.
I'll talk at you all later.
All 50 achievements on Skyrim yesterday morning. YAAAA!!!!!!! I was sooo phyched. The last achievements I got were Oblivion Walker Thu'um Master, and Reader. Quite the adventure Skyrim. I got all the achievements on my Argonian Rogue. Although Being level 52 and the were the skills are at now, he can get by with any armor/weapon. I played him alone for 118 hours. So adding all the other Skyrim Characters I've got about 140 hours in Skyrim with plenty more on the way.
That's what he looks like. Deadric armor and all. The Shadowmare however fell into the pit of Skyrims many bugs. He started running at a dragon and after the dragon took off he kept on running till he went on past the collage of winterhold, through the ravine, and into the ocean.
Me being me, instead of trying to get on him and stop the glich, I thought he was runnig after somthing by the time I found my way to the bottom of the ravine my precious Shadowmare was long gone.
I can't tell you how disapointed in the Dragon Bone/Scale Armor. The Deadra are just too hot. Even in Morrowind they were freakin awesome. I loved that Deadric Crescent Blade to you Morrowind freaks out there.
So you all think I'm about to come back to real life now that Skyrim has been searched through and cleaned of unfinished achievements right? Well guess again. I bought Oblivian goty ed off of my aunte shortly after I got Skyrim for Christmas, and there are plenty of adventures yet to be had. xD
BTW to you who read my last blog. I finishhed The Darkness. I love that game so much. Both the story and game play are fantastic. There were parts that left me on the edge of my seat. I'm a little weary to play the 2d one seeing as they kinda screwed that one up in comparison to the first one. So I hear anyway.
So anyway that's all for now. I'll probably blog next when I get my next pay and blow it all on some Reaper Miniatures. I know that D&D and painting miniatures brands me as a geek at a level many of you may never understand. To those of you who dare delve into the dark abysssse off the hobbyist..... Enbrace the Darknesss. LOL xD
This looks sooo awesome. It's now got me in the rush to finish the last 2 Assassin games. ya that's right, I have Brotherhood and Rev to beat still. lol The release date is the end of October, and I think I've got time. Words also out that it will be on Wii U along with PC, X-Box 360, and PS3.
It's pretty obvious that it is going to be set in the Revalutionary War. I'm really excited for a completely new setting and protagonist. I myself think Ubisoft used Ezio waayyy too much. Don't get me wrong Ezio is awesome, but thet have just used him to the piont to exaustion. Another interesting deal about the protagonist is he is obviously native American, but unless an ancestor of Desmond's marries an a native American then someone elss is gonna be useing the Animus. I have been told that there may be an explenation to who it may be in Rev, but that is all I know. I had also been woried about what the heck the new guy would be climbing in the 13 colonies, but seeing the trailer and him running and climbing through trees has got me really excited
This trailer has got me really excited for it and now I'm ready to spend a crap load of cash and get Brotherhood & Rev. It's a fresh take on Assassin's Creed, and hopefully will do better that Ezio's last chapter.
Next Gen on the Way.
This is the one I'm gonna be getting when it comes out. After reading about it I'm pretty stoked for Microsoft. Right now all we can do is guess on what it's gonna be like, but I can't wait to get ahold of more info on it. If what ING is saying is acurate then we are all in for a treat. For one they think it will be very affordable. How they came to this conclusion I have no Idea. xD I'm not complaining though.
I imagine we'll get a deeper look into the 720 at E3.
I've never really cared for PS3, and I doubt I'll be getting the PS4 when it comes out or ever get it for that matter. I do want to get the PS2 so I can get some of the PS and PS2 hits. They have some pretty good games.
I cant lie though, that PS4 controler is lookin Real Badass. (see the link)
This has got to be the best that Nintendo has been able to muster. Take a look at that Zelda Demo vid on the link to see what I mean. The new design on the controller for the Wii U looks SICK! It may take some getting used to the unique controller **** but I think it will end up being a good move on Nintendo's part.
I myse;f am very tempted to get this. If I'm right to assume that it will play Wii games then I'll be sold. It'll just be a matter a forking out the cash when I'll be blowing about $90 on the Myst of Pandaria collector's edition. The both of them will be financialy close so I don't know if I'll have the money for the both of them by the end of the year. My cousin is going to be corn tasseling this year and has invited me to come along. I imagine that it would be freakin tedious, but if it pays well I'm in.
Thanks for reading.
Yup. I got to spending a bunch of money. You know how people say not to spend all your money in one place? Well I have never been able to follow that bit of advice.
I forgot to put Halo 3 in the shot. So ya. I got some pretty good games as you can see. I started playing Bioshock 2 and The Darkness. Both are Very good games. But I gotta say... Darkness is the first game I've played were you kiss someone while still in first person view. : / Kinda awkward. I hope that these will keep me satisfied until I get a hard drive for my 360.
A slim hard drive is freaking expensive though! I want to go all out and get the 320 gb for $130. *sigh* It's gonna take so long. If any of you would like to donate to this cause please do! xD
So the other day we got some new ink for the printer. You know how at Game Stop you get games with out the original cover, and instead you get this crapy game stop thing? I hate that. So I went online and looked for pics like this one.
I then printed it out for the games that were cursed with the game stop cover and presto!
So thats just about it for now. Thanks for reading! Peace out.
First of all I'm sorry I haven't been able to comment on anyones blog and reply. I've been really caught up in school and my vidoe gaming. My stepbrother and I have been playing World of Warcraft alot.
Any way, as for the title I have a subscription to GI thanks to my Game Stop Pro Membership.I've been able to catch up on some new releases coming out this year and whatnot. Some pretty fun stuff in there. I was particularly intersted in the artacle about Darksiders II and "I Have No Mouth and I Must Screem". Sadly GS gives the later mention a bad rating.
As for games I have been playing I have started playing Zelda: The Twilight Princess for the first time. I've only put about 8 hours into it, but am loving it. It's so far my favorite since The Ocarina of Time. Ocarina is still my absolute favorite Zelda game.
I really wonder if they will ever ton the Ocarina of time. I've played all the other Zelda games accept for The Skyward Sword, but not sure if it has outdone Ocarina or not. Everything about that one is so great to me. I love the story and world. It's puzzles and challenges are so far unmatched. As for story it had a few VERY massive plot twists for those of you who have not played through it.
I have also finished playing AC2. I really loved the ending and game, but I myself thought it was just a little flat with the story towards the middle, but overal it was a fantastic game. Altire is by far still my favorite assassin though.
When I got to the end I thought it was over when Desmond said "What the f***!?" When the credits started rolling I thought that was the end of the game. xD
Next on my list of games I'm gonna get are the 2 Bioshock games & the Dragon Age Ultimate edition for the 360. I know I already have it for the PC, but I can play through it sssooooo many times I want to horde the achievments on my XBL account. lol My PC also would lag really bad at a few parts in the game. Any way, that's what I'll be getting. I should have the cash in a week or so.
And finally before I leave you all here is my score for this years gameing and reading.
As you can see I don't read much. lol
I man, I just love that game. I just beat the game yesterday. I got the good ending and didn't harvest ANY little sisters. I guess I'm only assuming there is a evil ending, but I love the game so much I don't want to just watch on youtube and find out. If you could tell me if there is I'll be playing through again, and I'll sadly have to harvest the little sisters. /cry.
But I really thought the ending was ver touching.
I'm really weary to play through evil if there is though. It would be just to sad. lol But anyway I thought I'd update my 2012 status.
Games Beaten 5 New Movies Seen 10 Books read 2
Well that's all for now. Thanks for reading!
Till fate brings me here,
Yup. I've been one of THEM for six months now. Just for fun I did some math and added up how much time I have spent playing WoW. It ended up being 14 days, 21 hours, and 31 minuets. Two weeks of my life....
So then I did more math to see how much I was getting for my money. Turns out I get 59 hours and 30 minuets of gameplay for every $15 monthly fee. And just think, The Darkness 2 is $50 and i
t's taking people only 5 hours of gameplay to beat it. GO Blizzard!!!! So anyway, just thought I'd share with you guys how much of my life I've devoted to WoW alone. there's another 120 hours in Skyrim So ya. Have a great day!
Ya I know my gear sucks. I'm working on it.
So I borrowed the first Bioshock from my uncle a few days ago, and I have fallen in love with it. Fantastic game. I gotta say the fights were a little tedious at first, but once you get some good equiptment it evens out very well.
The animations for the little sisters are amazing. For instance, whenever you kill a Big Daddie and when the sister will cry beside the body untill you either rescue her by de-atomizing her, or harvesting her. I'd never be so cruel as to kill one of them just for some ATOM.
The rewards you get from rescuing the sisters are much better that just ATOM alone. BTW You use ATOM to upgrade yourself and learn new abilities by geneticly enhancing yourself, or splicing you genes. The story is also fantastic. There heve been some moment were I was very shocked. The gameplay is also very good.
If you haven't played this game I would recommend it. My current achievments are something around 32 out of 51.
I also got to drawing THIS, but wasn't very satisfied with how it was turning out. I'll probably start anew.
Till next fate brings us together,
So yup! I finnally beat Alan Wake!. I beat it on normal, so I'm now going through it on Nightmare mode achievment hunting.
s I love the gameplay and story. It's awesome how Alan tells you the story as you go. So if you don't have it I'd recommend getting it. I don't have the DLCs, but when I get a hard drive from GameStop. I'm now playing Bio-Shock. I borrowed it from my uncle. I love the setting and look of the game. I'm enjoying it very much. I guess I'll talk at you all later. With Love and Hate,
lol Yup. I just watched Poltergeist the other day. Pretty good movie even though it was so dated. I don't really know why, but I've suddenly taken a liking to horror. Ever since I watched Paranormal activity I've been all into the genre. Note I don't like the indi zomby gore movies. I like a good creepy plot. I've also been reading a book called On Writing Horror. It's a real fun read, and hopefully will help me mess with people through my words on paper. Since I've taken such a liking to horror and wanting to write horror, (and also the fact that I'm homeschooled) my mom has given me a project to write a short horror story for school once I've finished the book.
One of the perks to being homeschooled is that the work you do is usually tuned to your tast. At least once you get into higher grades. And it also depends on your parent and how they choose you are to learn.
Any way, back to the horror, I got an inception of a stroy I want to do, but it's still just an outline.
I'm also wanting to get some more horror games! I don't know to many, so if you know a real good one for the 360, old pc, gamecube, or xbox let me know! I want to get Dead Space, Eternal Darkness, Condemed: Criminal Origins, and some more Silent Hill Games as well as F.E.A.R. If you got any suggestions let me know. As for the games that I do have I recently bought Assassins Creed 2 and Alan Wake. Both are fantastic games. I love Alan Wake in particular. The way he tells you the story draws you in so well. I'm currently on what I THINK is the last episode. Not sure though.
I've also beaten a few games. For one I finished the main quest line in Skyrim. I also have all but three achievments in the game. I need to get 15 Dadric artifacts, read 50 skill books, and learn 20 shouts.
I have now started several characters in Skyrim, and will be making video guides to the dungeons and quests. Not sure when I'll actually get to thant.
I've also beaten Assassin's Creed, and Halo reach. I may have already said that, but I can't remember.
Along with the 2 games I got, I also signed up for the GameStop pro membership. Along with a %10 discount on all ued games, I got a years subscription to GameInformer, and a buy 2 get one free coupon. So That's pretty much it for now.
Talk at you all later. With Love and Hate,
LOL No wonder it was $30.... XD
So what's up people? For one thing I'd like to share I beat Halo Reach on legendary with VGN and my cousin. So far it is the best Halo in every way. The story was awesome, and moving. The final scene after the credits was awesome. So ya. My 2012 score now stands thusly.
GAMES BEATEN 2 MOVIES WATCHED 4 BOOKS READ 0
Pretty good start for the year. In Skyrim I have nearly all the achievments. About 10 more then I'll have em all. It's gonna take awile to get those last achievments though.
I wanted to show you guys stills from my favorite scenes in Halo Reach, but to prevent spoilers I'll just show you guys a drawing I drew for VideoGamerNerd awile back.
I can't wait for Halo 4 to come out this year.
One more thing before I leave I got 2 new GS achievments.
Okay so that's all for now. I'll talk at you guys later.
That's right here it is.
This is my first drawing were I tried to capture a likness so there are some obvious flaws. I plan on painting it one day, but that will be a long time from now. I want to be good at painting so I don't ruin this one. So any of you who have played Dragon Age will understand the significance of the mirror. If you found it that is. lol If you have any advice please share it. Thanks for readign.
I'm not done with it, but was so excited I wanted to share it with you all right now.
I hope that it turns out all right. I'm not quite pleased with its look at the moment, but it will look alot different when I'm finished with it. Let me know what you all think.
I think after I finish drawing it in I'll paint it. I usually don't paint well, so I'll have to improve before I try to paint this one.
Also before I leave you I have beaten Assassin's Creed! I loved it and can't wait to get some muney to buy the second one. My 2012 score chart stands thusly
Games Beaten 1 Movies Watched 4 Books Read 0
Thanks For reading. I'll talk at ya later!
So ya... That's the meaning of life. Thanks for reading.XD Long time huh? I'm sorry I haven't been able to commene on anyones blogs lately, but I've been real busy with the holidays. Speaking of wich. You may remember how I was going to save up for an x box 360 right? Well I gave up the endevor seeing as I got it for Christmas!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! Yup that's right. I got a 360 and Skyrim.I've been a die hard elder scrolls fan since I played Oblivian at my uncles apartment. I just bought Oblivian from VGN the other day, but have been playing Skyrim non-stop since I got it. It's the best elder scrolls game yet. The only thing I can find wrong with it is the long loading time. :/ But It is the best in every other way. I'm currently level 28 and have finished the Dark Brotherhood, and Nightengale questlines. I'm also at the part were I've have found the Elder Scroll and have to fight that big dragon. I need to get a higher lever before I can do it though. Current Achievment score on Skyrim is 350.
I got plenty of other thing, but I'll stick to Game related stuff for now.
Now do NOT judge me by this next pic. I was a running on coffee.
That's right! My all time favorite warcraft character. Arthas has been my favorite since I got Warcraft III
I also got some GC games. I got Zelda Twilight Princes
Prince of Persia Two Thrones
& Lego StarWars 2
I haven't gotten to Zelda yet, but Have played a good amount of two thrones. It's by far the best Prince of Persia Game ever. I also got Halo Reach and Assassin's Creed with some muney I got from the rest of the fam along with a 12 month live subscription.
As for books I got Inheritance and Dragon Age: The Calling. I'm currently reading the Inheritance. It is pretty good so far. I love those books. I'm gonna start reading Dragon Age after I finish this one.
So I hope you all have had a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. Tell me if you have maid any resalutions. :/ YA RIGHT!!! LOL Also my live gamer tag is Arthusbuttkick. (in case you couldn't guess. ) and I'm also going to start keeping track of how many game's I've beaten, how many books I've read, and how many new movies I'll have seen. I'll update it on my blog weekly if I can. Currently in the lead would be new movies I've seen. It's currently at 3.
I've seen Paranormal Activity 1 and 2. Wich are fantastic movies and you definately should watch them. And I also watched the Blind Side wich was a lot better that I thought it was going to be. So thats all people. Later!
Greetings My People! Yup. I've been gone for quite awile. I had to fly and help my step father move my cousin here for the Holidays. It's sucked. The Flight and drive through Dallas was fun, but other than that it sucked. I won't get into that though. It was the first time I have ever rode on a plane though. I loved it. I wish we could have flew back. Se ya. I'm back now, it's Christmas eve eve!
The other night I watched Harry Potter the Deathly Hallows part 2. I loved it. I read the books awile back though, but still loved the movie. Harry Potter is one of my favorite book series. Then tonight I watched Iron Man for the First time. I loked that as well. It's worth buying. Click on the link below for my newest Vlog.
Yup. I had lots of fun making this one. I also made a second youtube channel devoted to my gameing. At the moment I only have some Morrowind gameplay vid. I also record the audio of me talking. So you can click the link below to watch Morrowind, and listen to me saying random stuff.
Please let me know what you all think.
Sadly I haven't had the time to do any drawing lately. I have look at some Dark Souls Concept art like some of you sugested and was very inspired. I really want to start drawing right now, but I want to be able to have the time to finish it. If I stop before it's done, I usually don'y go to finish it. But after the holidays I got some great ideas to try out.
In the World of Warcraft I have been doing TONS of battle grounds. Lots of fun as usual. I also got this mount awile back.
Not sure how well that will show up, but you get the idea. All I did to get it was agree to a annual pass, wich is basicly commiting to pay for wow for a year. I'll also get Diablo III for free. Sadly I doubt I'll be able to play it on my laptop. But it will at least be bound to my Battle net account.
So anyway that'll just about do it. I won't around for awile after Christmas, I'll be to buisy with all my free loot I'll be getting. Later People!
Yup so here is the new drawing I've done.
I made some pretty obvious mistakes in this one, but will tweek it a little bit later. I liked it so much that I didn't color it. I don't paint very well and tend to ruin my drawins by painting. I may try colored pencils. Not sure yet though.
And here is the second one.
I based this one of of a D&D character my cousin playes in my D&D group. I need to add detail and color to this and it will be done.
I'm also working on another drawing (or painting) based off of the Dark Samus from Metriod Prime 2. I just started playing that again after all these years again, and decided to try a concept idea of Dark Samus. My first attempt failed big time. I want to do this one though so make sure I do. I love the Metroid games. Metroid Prim was the first game I actually owned. I got it with the Metroid bundle when I got my GameCube. It only cost me $85. Pretty awesome deal for a systum that was prime when I got it. Any way. That's all for now. Later people.
With all due Respect,
Yaaa. Sorry to dissapoint, but I did cancel my work on the video reviews. When I got down to editing I just got tired of it. After the Silent Hill Spoof I'm kinda sick of editing. It took 3 days to edit that thing. So I may take up the video editing thing some other time. Instead though, I wrote some reviews right here.
There are a few others I wrote that you can check out if you like. Let me know how I did, and be sure to give em a thumbs up.
I meant to show you guy this last blog but I forgot.
You probably have already seen this, but I thought it was pretty awesome,
As for the gameing stuff I've been playing lots of PainKiller. My favorit level so far is the Asylum. It was really the first CREEPY level in the game. And as for WOW I've been playin like crazy as usual. Once I get some decent gear on my prime character I'm gonna start on leveling up my Death Knight to 85. Well Later people.
With all due respect,
Yup. I dug out a few old games that I never really finished. Oni and Pain Killer. I've been playing Oni and am instaling Pain Killer right now.
Oni is a Japanese action game. And before I go any further I don't know what the rock star logo is doing on this pic. It's actually made by Bungie. The story is okay, but you want to play it mainly for the fighting of course. It's a well balenced mix of hand to hand combat and shooting. Some of the melee attacks are vicious. One of them knocks the enamy on the groun, places foot on the enamies spine, and breaks their back. The transition between guns and hand to hand is seemless. I love knocking people down and then blasting them with an uzi. I'm so evil. The graphics of the game are not so great but bearable.
As for the other game I spoke of earlier, Pain Killer, is also a action game, but more of a beat em up shooter. Your guy dies in a car wreck and ends up in purgatory to begin with. ( BTW Purgatory is were you go before you reach heaven. Some beleive you pay for your sins there before you can go to Heaven. I beleive it's just were you hang out and learn stuff untill the second advent. ) There an angel offers you your life back if you go kill the dukes of Hell. The wepons you get are horrific. One shoot wooden staikes and pins demon to walls.
I played this at my dads apartment awile back and he let me have it. I just now loaded it on my lap top.
BTW My parents got a divorce a year or so back and I live with my mom and she has remarried. I don't see my dad for personal resons. If you saw my Silent Hill Spoof and have seen it's credits I said that I got the jackets from my dad. I actually got them from my step Father. So I'll start saying step father from now on so as not to create confusion. Also don't say you feel sorry for me about the divorce. It happend a long time ago, and it's one the thing I'm most thankful for.
So one more thing before I leave. I'm going to start doing reviews of game, but they will be videos. I'm not sure what game I want to start with. I also have a DVD recorder I can run my consoles through so I cna add my own video to the reviews. Also check out my vidoes here at game spot. I added two, but not any more. Loading video to game spot is a pain. At least for me. Well Later people. With all due respect,
