All About Franzkill
Thats right folks. I've just experienced the infamous error that every Xbox 360 owner fears (and eventually gets) and it really couldn't have come at a better time.
Well actually before I get into it more I'll explain how it got to this point. The last couple of times I was on Halo 3 I heard random noises from the console and I just assumed it was a problem with the disc. So I checked it, cleaned it a bit and poped it back in. Well matchmaking was still fine so it had to be a problem on the console's end right?
Turnt it off for a whie, turned it back on and it was perfectly fine. This then happened again several more times but around the third I saw those dreaded red rings. Got worried, turnt it off then back on again. It was back to normal again but it was the last time when things got pear shaped.
You see this time when I tried turning it off then back on again the red rings continously showed up and eventually I accepted its fate. Yes the consoles fate and you know what? I'm not sad or down in the dumps.
No I was more concerned about an upcoming demo featuring a certain group of evil red eyed fanatical futuristic cult- like troopers (yes I like using adjectives .
As you can see everything I've written thus far has been happening a couple of days prior to me playing the living Helghan out of the recently released Killzone 2 demo. SUPPRESIVE FIRE!!
Oh yes my friends I like it very much. All of you complaining about the control issues, I say WHAT ISSUES? Get used to the controls and try aiming more precisely. Its called practice so you may as well get used to it and the controls aren't bad either just becase they ain't the same as COD4.
Coming from someone who unfortunately missed the closed online beta late last year I was blown away by how good it was. It really did exceed my expectations and by god they were high. So to answer this question here and now to my 360 buddies, no I probably won't be on Halo 3 for a while. Just don't call me a fanboy for deserting it.
-Spawn Kills on Standoff (particularly BTB playlists)
Just four of the many reasons why Halo 3 online ticks me off so much but I still came back for more. Its called an addiction which happily should go away with the arrival of my copy of Killzone 2 on the 27th.
So now just to top off what would be my longest blog ever (I think) my wishs for what PS3 games I would like to see pacthed for the future:
- Metal Gear Solid 4 (Would give me incentive to purchase)
-Ninja Gaiden Sigma
- Lair (highly unlikely)
- Heavenly Sword
- COD 4
- Tekken 5 DR
And pretty much the entire back catologue of PS2 games to be pacthed. I'm thinking trophies in Onimusha 2 which would be kickass. Yes I know extremely wishful thinking
Anyways hope you had fun reading!
22Jan 08Has anyone else heard about this shocking news?
I want to be really honest here. I've been extremely lazy for the past couple of weeks, I've missed several deadlines at college, I haven't done any overtime at work for a while and I just feel really clueless all the time. Mabye its just me but very often I always seem to have this grudge against the rest of the world.
I don't know if you have ever had anyone say the term 'The World doesn't revolve around you you know' to you but I just can't stand it when that term gets refered to me. I'm not an attention seeker and although I think my life is often s**t I am aware that pretty much every other human being has the same going for them. So I ask anyone and everyone that is reading this blog the next time you go out and you think you have had the worst day ever just think how it could have been even more worse than it already was.
You might have got run over by a car and left permanentely disabled for the rest of your life. You might have tripped over in a puddle in front of a crowded bus stop IN FRONT of a crowded bus full of ticked off commuters.
I'm not really important compared to the rest of the worldso why complain about my own problems?
On a slightly positive note If all goes well I should definetly be getting a 360 next Friday along with at least one game to boot up. I'm also planning to download Sonic 1 and 2 via XBL Arcade assuming I manage to hook my network up without any problems. I've been thinking a while about whether to get a PS3 or 360 and when it comes to choice of games its kinda hard for me to decide.
For some weird reason I suddenly got this amazing feeling when I unlocked my first ever achievement in Gears Of War on Windows (one of my many Chrimbo presents) and after discovering that all Xbox 360 games support achievements I was pretty ecstatic! I think replay value is always important to any game and achievments just puts that incentive into wanting to play it more.
Oh yeah can someone also give me some help on putting my Gamertag on my profile homepage? I'm trying to follow the steps on Xbox.com but it keeps coming back with bad request for some reason. Pretty random and weird blog I know but I just wanted to write something long anyway.
I hope that everyone had a great time over Chrimbo/New Year drinking, socialising, partying, orgy-ing etc but remember to start working hard again especially if you are in college like me! Later
