"I game therefore I am"
Yes! Finally I have finished Okami and what an awesome game. The story was great although sometimes I feltdragged on but thats the only complaint. The overall feel of the game was just immersive and I hope there will be an Okami 2!
In other news I bought BioShock for the PC and will start it when I'm on school holidays next week I'm also going to pre-order the Orange Box but am really annoyed I'll have to buy Half Life 2 and Episode 1 again seeing as the Black Box is canceled.
I also want your opinion: X360 or PS3? The 360 has a more reasonable price for me and has the majority of games I want however the PS3 has some games on it I want more such as Resistance and of course........MGS4 which I can't wait for! But its price is indeed over the top for me. Decisions, decisions
Well hope you guys and galsare doing well See ya round
Well firstly I finally finished Half Life 2 after putting it off for a while and man what a great game, I'm going to start Episode One now so I'm ready for Episode Two
Yeah I can't wait forNovember, I mean so many huge games coming out: Crysis, Assassin's Creed, COD4, Unreal Tournament 3, the list goes on I hope to get most of those them for PC especially Crysis which I can't wait to try out on my PC *drools*
Also I watched a movie last night called Reign Over Me which is pretty good and is about a guy who meets his old college roommate (adam sandler) who lost his whole family on September 11 and is now all messed up and even becomes obsessed with playingShadow of the Collossus
Anyway thats all from me Take care
Readthis just so you know.......
Seems like forever since I've been on this site and the main reason wouldn't be because of school or sport or anything but GS itself. I enjoy reading your blogs but thats about it and I am sorry for not posting in them.......the forums are just the same old stuff over and over again.
Well anyway I haven't been up to much just school and going out on weekends. I've been playing a lot of BF2 lately aswell.
Thinking of getting a Wii after playing at my friends house.....it was AWESOME
Also last night I was lucky I didn't end up beaten to a pulp. My friends and I were walking along a street when these two cars full oftough guys ofabout 18 or 19 year olds pulled up and starting accusing us of throwing stuff at their cars and then got out with the intention of kicking the s**t out of us. I sprinted away with two of my friends but one of my friends stayed and was lucky they belived that he didnt know us though they still roughed him up. I'm thankful i got away because they were mainly after me
Anyway its the last time I'll say it.........but I will be on more from now on Hope everyone is doing well
Yep today I got...........S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl!!
Also today my coach told me that I''ve been moved up and I'llplay footy (Aussie Rules) for the A Squad tomorrow!! Its last game for the school season so I'll be finishing on a good note!
Thats all......hope you are all doing well!
Well with my new PC, my wish list for games has expanded but I still have my eye on a PS3 aswell so they are in there aswell. I don't know exactly when I am aiming to get these games by but I guess some time in the near future
Resistance Fall of Man
Grand Theft Auto IV
Resident Evil 5
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Battlefield Bad Company
Devil May Cry 4
Call of Duty 4
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
Unreal Tournament 3
I could make a huge list of games but I have to be realistic with cost. Feel free to make any suggestions for changes or additions. That's all, take care everyone
Hey guys and gals of GS, yep I'm back from my trip overseas and it was awesome. I won't go into a lot of detail about the trip because I know I don't like reading a wall of text
Anyway I left roughly 3 weeks ago and arrived in Barcelona, and stayed there for 3 days. I stayed with my mum, aunt and cousin in a hotel and my 2 brothers stayed in a hostel called the Kabul Hostel for those who might know it.
Whilst there we did some wandering throughout the city and also did a bus tour of this magnificant city. I saw some really cool stuff like Gaudi's La Predrera which is an apartment building which is really really cool, also the Segrada which is an unfinished cathedral which is mind blowing and then also Parc Guell which was areally cool place and really well designed for just relaxing.8)
One of my more favourite parts of the tour however was going to Camp Nou (Nou Camp, which ever you like) Stadium, home ground of FC Barcelona!! I was absolutely blown away by this stadium and i even stood on the grass which your not supposed to but I did anyway Anyway I could rant on about the stadium forever but I'll make it short and I have to say I was hugely impressed by everything in Barca(even the street performers which were either cool or really weird)and can't wait to go back on my own for a different experience
I then headed over to Ireland for the remainder of my trip to visit family and friends which are spread all over the place, apart from in Northern Ireland
I spent most of my time in a place called Schull in West Cork for those of you who know your Irish Counties It was actually interesting because we were staying down there for a week with my cousins and we saw all the Garda (police) out looking for the guys that screwed up in their attempt to smuggle in 100 million euros worth of cocaine. Anywho that was great down there because we went to the pub every night (not much else to do) and the scenery around the coast were brilliant.
The rest of my time spent in Ireland was just visiting friends and family who I hadnt seen in a while and we had some great times together and after I finish school I'll consider moving over there for a year, which would be great
So yeah thats about it from me. I'll leave you with a song from one of my favourite bands at the moment - Kings of Leon: Fans
I'll be off to write in your blogs and check out whats been happening round this place now so see ya round.
Yep in 13 hours I'll be out of Australia and on my way to Barcelona and Ireland!!
However that means I won't be on GS to read and post in your blogs, post in forums and unions, etc. etc.
So yeah I'll be back in 3 weeks, so all of you stay cool and don't leave GS) But most of all dont cry because I'm leaving
Well I hope to have an awesome time, and thats it from me GameSpotters!!
Well yep, today I got some games, but just off Steam.
I got the Source Value Pack or whatever its called
It came with
Half-Life 2: Episode One,
Half-Life 2: The Lost Coast,
Half-Life 2 Deathmatch,
Half-Life Deathmatch: Source,
CounterStrike: Source and
Day of Defeat Source
So I think that, BF2 and GRAW should keep me busy for a while, a long with some PS2 games I still havent finished
Yes I finally have the new PC I've been talking about!
I've installed BF2 and also GRAW which came free with it and the PC handles it fine with max settings!!
Its running on a Intel Core 2 Quad CPU, has 4GB of RAM, has2 x 500GB hard drives, graphics card is a GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB, and also has a 22" LCD monitor and Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse.
It should see me out for a good while
Well I obtained the Hella-Old School emblem, which must be a glitch and I hope so!
While it's a pretty cool emblem....I lost my Good Taste and PS2 Emblem, which I would rather have.
Once its gone the other 2 emblems better come back or I won't be a happy camper
I'm also getting a new high-performance PC tonight (hopefully) which will keep me gaming for a while Its best feature I think is the GeForce 8800 GTX and 2 x 500GB hard drives!
I'll provide you with the full specs in my next blog
Yesterday I finished God of War 2 and wow!!
It was so awesome....I can't wait for God of War 3!!
I'll probably try an finish Okami now, I just gave up before
Well thats all!
EDIT: Just finished writing a review for it aswell if you want to check it out
Well first off let me say.....EXAMS ARE OVER!!
Secondly, I'm just letting you know that in 17 days........I'll be leaving you, yes you, my dear friends.
But not to worry, I'll be going overseas, with all of my family!!
First off I'll leave at 10:00am then arrive in singapore.....then........have a 7 hour wait
After that, I'm off to Barcelona for 4 days which should be awesome, can't wait to see everything, especially Camp Nou (Barcelona's home soccer/football stadium) which will be stunning to see. Oh and in Barcelona, have a guess what the legal drinking age is? 16!! Hopefully I'll go out and get legless with my brothers
After Barcelona I go to Ireland for 2 and a half weeks to meet all my relatives Which should be great time seeing all my cousins and stuff.
Then I come back. Hopefully during my time I might be able to log on to GS at my cousins house or something
So thats the big news I've been saving It should be great.
It won't be my first time in Ireland or overseas though, when I was like 6 I went to Ireland and Paris and Los Angeles, and just 2 years back went to San Francisco, New York and Ireland.
So hope you are doing fine
Well seems I'm halfway through exams, had 3 today (English, Geography and American History), 1 yesterday (science) and 1 about a week ago (Visual Communications and Design). They're pretty much the major ones out of the way......which i care about
So I've got 2 Maths exams coming up, an Art exam, a Religion exam (which i find is a bit of a joke) and another Visual Communications and Design exam! Think I'll do pretty well....
Well hope all you guys (and gals) are doing fine
Yes.....exams have just snuck up on me!!
From Thursday.....exactly 2 weeks away they'll be. I'll be on GS like the usual up until the week of exams, but maybe just a little less in the revision week before.
I think I'll do pretty well in them, apart from maths which i have 2 exams..one with a calculator and one without:'(
Umm not much else to tell you, but there was some problem with my God of War 2 pre-order off EzyGames.com, but I got it off ebay for the same price, but this was the Special edition so I'm sorta glad I got it off eBay.
Well see ya round, have a good one!!
Yep its my birthday!! Well technically it was yesterday but what the heck!! So yeah I'm 16 and i didn't really want much this year, so my parents just gave me some money which is good and a book and my brothers got me a coupla DVDs!! So I'm happy and well thats all really!! Oh here have some cake
Well yeah as you could probably guess......I got a new emblem for completing the Scavenator Game!!
That's all really Oh but there's 2 days til my BIRTHDAY (feel free to start sending presents....just kidding......but not really) and 3 weeks til EXAMS
