All About WeazelMan311
The weeks keep passing me by...
Current events in my life will be displayed here, including how my sports teams are doing and what games I am enjoying or looking forward to at the moment. I will share my opinion on whatever I feel like and make comments about anything I find interesting.
26Dec 06The other day I realized that this is going to be the last great year for the PS2, which is the only system I have right now, and probably the only system I will have for a while. When I first got it five years ago, I was disappointed at not getting a Gamecube or Xbox. Now, I am truly thankful that I got a PS2 instead. The amount of unbelievably fun games it pumped out year after year was unbelievable to me, most of which were exclusive. All that I have left to look forward to next year are Rogue Galaxy and God of War II, which will be the last new PS2 game that I ever buy.
As I look back over the years, there are certain games that deserve special recognition. The hack n' slash genre was especially great, with the Devil May Cry series, Onimusha series, God of War series, Shadow of Rome, etc. All of those were excellent games, and the fact that there were sequels to a lot of them was even better. In the online section, there was Socom, which was some of the most fun I've ever had with a video game, ever. The multiplayer online was so fun and addicting that I must have put 500 hours into the second and third games, and soon it will be more with Combined Assault. For adventure games, there is Okami and Shadow of the Colossus, which are two of the most creative and innovative games ever made. San Andreas was one of the best games this generation, and although it was on multiple platforms, getting to play it a year before the others was kind of nice. Bully was kind of a nice surprise; I didn't expect much out of it since it came out right at the end of the PS2's lifespan and didn't have much hype. Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 were epic games that had too many movies but fun to play, nonetheless. I swore to myself that I didn't like rythm/music games, but I frickin love Guitar Hero I and II now. It's all thanks to college for that. Then, for fighting games, there was the Tekken and Virtua Fighter series. One of my favorite genres, the platformer, was represented very well on the PS2, with three Ratchet and Clanks and three Jak and Daxters.
Like I said, I can't believe how many good games I got to play, especially when I ended up only owning one system. I didn't even have a good PC to play games on. Unfortunately, next year I won't have a bunch of new, good games to play, and I'll have to try and save up for a PS3, Wii, or 360 this summer.
7Aug 06Well,, it went by fast, just like I knew it would, and my summer was pretty fun. The 4th of July was definitely the craziest night, and I'm lucky I got home that night in one piece. I had gangs threatening me, preppy kids threatening me, and cops interrogating me, all while I was completely trashed. A bit of advice: don't try and drive downtown when you're wasted. Then there was the night before I went to Warped Tour, in which I had too much to drink and had to go to the concert feelin shytty, but it was still awesome. I got to see Anti-Flag, Bouncing Souls, NOFX, Less than Jake, Rise Against, Billy Talent, and a few others that I don't remember. It's so great getting to see your favorite bands play live. I almost passed out in a giant circle pit, but other than that everything was cool.
All I got is about 10 days left; tomorrow I'm going to Cedar Point and on Friday I'm going to a preseason Lions game. After that, I'll pretty much be done until I leave for college. I'm stuck on the sixth floor of the farthest away dorm from the center of campus, but for whatever reason people always say it's the best one. I'll still be watching all my Lions games, even if I have to walk to B-dubs, which isn't that far anyway. I'll continue to play Socom, too, if I can figure out how to get my PS2 online in the dorm room. Anyway, I'm done here so I hope everyone enjoys their last bit of summer. If I don't come on here as much it's cuz I got too much stuff to do.
7Jun 06Well, I got two new games quite recently, and I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy both of them very much. The first is Hitman: Blood Money. Now, the only Hitman game I've played before is Silent Assassin, and I don't really remember too much of it. So far, though, Blood Money is a ton of fun and has excellent gameplay in my opinion. The other game I just picked up today was GTA: Liberty City Stories, for just 15 dollars. Granted, it's a few steps down from San Andreas, but it's an all new story with all new characters and it's cheap as a mofo. I haven't played the PSP version so I am excited to try this game out.
As far as the summer goes, it is well underway for me. I graduated on May 25th, and partied the whole night. I really don't have too many plans for the summer except go to Warped Tour in Detroit to see Anti-Flag, and go to Cedar Point a few times. I also have work 4-5 days a week, and I'm in a tennis league that plays once a week. Honestly, though, I can't wait for college, because it should be about ten times more fun than high school was. I don't head down to the University of Dayton until August 17th, though.
