All About Spire88
i think this year was the best X-Mas i have had for a LONG time.
aside from from the usual cloths, candy and lotto tickets (which NEVER seem to pay out around this time of year) here is what i got in cool to "NINTENDO 64 KID" reaction.
an ultimate Sam Flynn.
Exit DS, Call of Duty World at War, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 ( i need to play a new MW game SINCE i got hacked down to level -1 in CoD4 MW1 and you need to beAT LEAST level 1 to play the online playlist.)
so if anyone can help me get UN-deranked in Modern Warfare i would really appreciate it.
4 1400 microsoft points cards, that's 5600 points +what i already have it brings me up to 6900 points. or converted into canadian dollars its $110.40.
and here it is my "Nintendo 64 Kid" gift.....................
A 250GB XBOX 360 HDD.
i was freaking out a 250GB hard drive is EXACTLY what i wanted, my 4 year old Halo 3 20GB HDD was almost full. how full i only have 1.3gb left on it. now i can get all the new map packs, DLC and many more arcade games.
this truley was the best X-Mas ever.
stay tuned for tomorrows Boxing Day Haul.
usually i do all figs at once BUT my computer likes to "recover tabs" or "restart" all on its own and i don't know why, so instead of doing one big blog i will break it up into parts so if it does conk out i wont have to rewrite all 5 reviews again.
ok so i was able to find all these on Friday the 25th, im canadian so we don't have the "peeper spray" deals like you guys have. just deals that keep us here and spend here.
first up is....
he comes with a Halo Reach spartan laser which is a new mold from the other lasers that have been made, its heavier more solid and has a more detail in it (like the screen on the side) and also comes with one frag grenade. he is spot on with the helmeted version but this time he has a face, to ME i think they could have put more "emotion" in his face. he reminds me of tobey maguire from the movie Brothers. i would highly recommend this guy if you want a full noble team set (helmeted and unhelmeted) or if you are really into stop motions.
he comes with a plasma pistol a plasma grenade (with nowhere to put it) a removable mask and two shields which are molded in a way so they correspond to each arm. i am NOT happy with this figure mainly because he cant stand to save his life, he has such little feet and backwards legs and knees. also he has a new head joint which i kind of like the neckrortates 360 and it pivots up and down, it makes it better for this fig. also the gun doesn't fit(i mean it fits) but it doesn't look right with the figure, it would be better if they game him a needle rifle instead of a plasma pistol. all in all if you were to get one fig from Series 5 i would skip him.
i was also able to find some games i wanted for a while as well, like Call Of Duty 4 Modern Warfare $11 NEW at walmart, it was a platinum hits and the "spine art" was just black lettering on a white background. i fixed it and it looks proper now.
Big Bumpin $5 an canadian tire new. and finally Black Lagoon 001 $3 new.
stay tuned for Part 2.
i was got these a while ago but i was too busy playing Gearsof War 3 to bother.
anyway i was able to get the all the figures in the Halo Anniversary line, normally i do a little review of the fig's BUT my computer is being a "richard" and this is the 3rd time doing this blog. so i will just do pics and links.
MASTER CHIEF (HALO: COMBAT EVOLVED)
DUTCH (HALO 3: ODST)
CORTANA (HALO 3)
ARBITER (HALO 2)
GRUNT (BLACK) (HALO 3)
and if your able to gather all 5 together you will be able to build the difficulty plaque
and i got 2 more series 4 reach figures
SPARTAN MARK V
i was also able to get the rest of the figures in the Gears of War 2 series 6 line,
thats it for figures.
i was FINALLY able to find Dirty Harry, i have been wanting this forever.
Gorillaz The Fall i just stumbled across it and i had to get it.
and i also found Lost Planet Extreme Condition collectors edition it was $4.99 used at eb games and i just had to get it (im a sucker for a steel book), too bad it didn't come with the plastic sleeve.
Duke Nukem #3
Halo Fall of Reach Covenant 4/4
and Gears of War #20 .
