A quick blog about a few things. First off, in the world of sports and the English Premier League, a big 'YAAAY' that Newcastle have begun the season rather well. After more BS over the summer with big name players leaving the club. But the new guys have done well and the manager, Alan Pardew, has also been doing rather well. I still feel the players can improve a lot. Watching some matches, they seem to make the same mistakes over and over again. They should really have gotten over those mistakes, some of which were there since 2-3 years ago. I'm not native to Newcatle, but I've been a fan a for a long time, and while I do get annoyed when they play like crap, I never seem to be able to not support them. They're coming up against a strong Totenham team in the next match, which might see out first loss unfortunately. Still, here's hoping we have a brilliant season!
The other sport I wanna touch on a bit is F1. It looks like Vettel will win his second drivers' championship this year at the next race in Suzuka, Japan. I've been a fan of his since he started in F1 with Toro Rosso, before he even won his first race. It's always great to see drivers work from the pack and become champions over time. It's been a great year for Vettel and Red Bull, if somewhat too dominant for the neutrals. Still, you take what you can get.
Looking forward to playing Dark Souls. Come's out here on Friday. I felt Demon's Souls was slightly overrated by many, things like difficulty and so on really overstated. I've seen Dark Souls has been getting great reviews, but I'm going in without expecting something mindblowing honestly. It'll be great fun, yea, and I love the atmosphere of the games, but if there are flaws that stand out to me, I won't be surprised.
The other game I'm a quickly touch on: Deus Ex
I made a quick video review here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31KoAYAM2bg
but the audio's a bit iffy. Written review here: http://geekmandem.com/2011/09/29/deus-ex-human-revolution-review/
Basically, score: 8.5/10 for the PC version.
Won't touch much on this. I may do a review (written or video) of shows I've seen this year. Best show from the summer season has been Dantalian no Shoka for me. It has its pros and cons, but overall a great watch. Might do a review of that first.
Of the shows starting, most looking forward to Working!! (season 2), Ika Musume 2, and Bakuman 2. A world of sequels, but I will be watching new shows too, just not too sure how I'll find 'em.
Till next time!
