All About CybertronR
1Sep 08Playing now:
BattleField: Bad Company
I've been racking up the gameplay hours with my brother playing Bad Company online. We're both Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 veterans so this game feels very familiar. I like the chaos of the larger scale battles presented by the Battlefield series. 8 vs 8 firefights across a street are not uncommon. And with grenades and rockets blowing holes in walls, it can get pretty intense.
I've been playing a lot of this with my girlfriend. It's easy to pick up and humor appeals to her. The online multiplayer suffers from disconnects which is annoying. Twice my friends and I got to a boss only to get disconnected. But local multiplayer is fast paced and satisfying.
Excited to play:
Who isn't excited about this game? Just release it already.
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II
I'm a big fan of the Warhammer 40,000 universe and I've sunk many an hour into the first Dawn of War game and expansions.
Operation Flashpoint 2: Dragon Rising
Again, I'm a big fan of the original. Owned and played through all of the expansions. More impressive is that I bought them when I was in college which was a period of game pirating for me. But we'll save that for another post.
I don't know if I'm excited to play this, or to see what happens with it. There's a lot of hype surrounding the game. I'll probably wait a little while after it comes out to see what the word on the street is.
What are you guys playing and looking forward to?
20May 08I bought a video capture card and made a couple Halo 3 highlight videos. We're doing a little 3 v 3 pride tournament, best of 7.
Match 1 and 2
Match 3 and 4
It went to seven matches. Last video is on the way.
16Jan 08I downloaded the Dawn of War: Soulstorm demo yesterday, twice. Apparently the first time I didn't finish downloading or something as the file was corrupt. It wasn't until 10:30pm or so that I actually got a chance to play. But after I started I didn't stop until the wee hours of the morning. I did find it annoying that the battle I played didn't have any victory conditions for some reason. So after I annihilated the space marines I was fighting with the new Dark Eldar faction, nothing happened. I searched the whole map. I had every capture point. Every relic. Even the victory point in the middle. No idea what's going on. Maybe it was a glitch? Anyone else play?
So it's a fun game. I have purchased every iteration of it so far. But, its appeal is wearing thin. I don't want to play as the Dark Eldar or the Sisters of whatever. I want to play as the Space Marine Dark Angels. I want to use the Deathwing and Ravenwing companies. I want larger scale battles with titans and super heavy battle tanks. *sigh* I guess I'll keep dreaming.
Also, the title of this post is the Dark Angels battlecry.
Update: I played the second battle in the demo. It was much better. It had a story line and there were bigger gunfights. I think the first one must have been just a skirmish or something. *shrug*
My Recent Reviews
Some people just don't have opinions. Like CybertronR.
Trailer for Evangelion Battle Orchestra. The music is probably the best thing about this game.
This trailer premiered at E3 2006 but I still think it's impressive.
TimeShift has taken a radically different approach to its upcoming time manipulation first-person-shooter.
CybertronR does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send CybertronR a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
