...I posted another blog.
I just haven't been inspired to blog lately, but its 1 AM now, and I can't sleep. What better time?
Recently I got myself on of these bad boys.
An iPhone, in case its not recognizable enough to you. So far, Im really loving it. The service isn't overpriced for what you get really (unlimited web/email/texts, 5000 nights and weekends, 45o anytime minutes, +rollover = $59.99) though the phone itself was a bit steep. All in all, I'm not dissapointed though. Its got some spectacular features. Nothing beats using your phone as an ocarina, then using it to find a nearby restaurant, stream some internet radio, and then swing it around to the accompaniment of lightsaber sfx. Oh, and.. you know... it makes calls too.
Now, latest game impressions.
Street Fighter 4 will be up first. Sadly enough, Im not enjoying this game nearly as much as I thought I would. It just feels been there done that, and the difficulty level seems to be ridiculously unbalanced at times. 7.5/10
FEAR 2 Project Origin on the other hand impressed me. I was not a fan of its predecessor by any stretch of the imagintation. It was very average. But Project Origin's managed to hold me captive from begining to end. The story is much better this time around, and told in a much more satisfying manner. The ending actually has me chomping at the bit to play FEAR 3. 9.0/10
Afro Samurai. What can I say about this game.... it sucks. Badly. Art direction is the only thing I can admire here really. BUT, i got it for a measely $5 from an unsatisfied freind, and that's a deal I'd have to be a fool to pass up. To bad playing the game just makes me angry inside... 4/10
And, finally, a movie impression. Today I went to see Coraline in 3d, and to be honest, it blew me away. I loved the film from start to finish, and the 3d was easily the best I've seen yet. It didn't feel gimmicky or tacked on in anyway. It just seemed... right. Henry Selick did an amazing job and you should definitely see this movie in the theatre if you get a chance. Its got an amazingly beautiful visual style that should be expeienced in all its glory.
Well, I guess that about does it for now. Hope everyone's doing well.
Zeke: Its already got some rain drops on the screen... working perfectly. And in no way does it suck. Thanks for commenting though! :D shot: :twisted:
i heard those phone sucks dude, and what ever you do, don't let a tinit of water hit it.. cause my friend has one, and only a mini drop of water landed on the screen, then BAM no more iphone.. so what happen if your in the rain and a bit of water lands it...? well enjoy your phone
:lol: Thanks. An what was the fate of you MP3 player :o I sure as heck hope it doesnt follow the same fate as my last phone... dropped in a rain filled gutter. :cry:
edpeterson: Thanks man. Yeah, The only fighter I really enjoy anymore is Soul Calibur. Im not sure what the deal is with the dialogue in Afro. Its pretty lame sounding though. Just immature really. Hazel: I do boycott their iPods and stuff. Theres better on the market for less money *cough PSP *cough*, but the iPhone is unbeatable in the phone department really. Hmmm...would it count as a write off on my taxes? Well, its time! bio: thank you, and yes. They are very nice. :D freham: Maybe I did, Maybe I didnt. ;) My lips are sealed. Im kinda shocked to hear about a gf not liking Coraline... :lol: Usually emotional animated films are right up their alley. :P I know mine loved it.
Hmm....Someone recently stole my friends iphone. Was it you??? :P Just kiddin man; thats cool and i hope you enjoy the phone, its got some cool features. And about Coraline: Tell that to my girlfriend! She thought it was a horrible movie, and i was shocked, i thought she would like it. However i myself did enjoy it, despite falling asleep during the circus part. lol.
I'm boycotting these iProducts. I have no idea why. I have no idea since when. I just am for some reason. :P :lol: If you don't like SFIV, my household also happens to be a *cough* video game disposal center... absolutely free to ship here. Pro bono! ;) I haven't gone to the theaters in like... forever :?
I wish I had an iPhone, they're awesome glad you're enjoying it :D Sorry to hear about Street Fighter 4 I think pretty much all fighting games are pretty much the same so I don't really 'get' them :lol: I played the FEAR 2 demo, I thought it was pretty fun but a little hard (but I was playing on the PC) glad to know you enjoyed it too :D At least you got Afro Samurai for 5 bucks :) I got the demo of this game, the graphics are cool and I like that cheap 1 hit kill thing but other than that it's kinda boring I guess, I wonder what that one guy's obsession is with the f word? Also, glad you liked the movie :D
Oh yeah! MGS Touch was one of the driving forces behind me getting an iPhone. As was the announced Silent Hill game it will be getting. And yeah, to bad they totally dropped the ball on Afro. Could have been a good game. :(
Awesome Raven! You deff gotta get MGS for your iPhnone when it comes out. And also,i totally agree with you on the Afro Samurai review. I also reviwed it myself and all it was was a generic hack-and-slack with one of the worst cameras ever put in a game.
Mac: Thank you. :D creamylemon: :lol: So get one! Or, wait till they release it for $99 *with contract* pretty soon. Polska: Well, the G1 android was one I was considering aswell. I think it looks amazing. Graeme: What do you mean cant make calls there? No AT&T 3G in Canada? And yes, it certainly was. Im looking forward to purchasing it on blu-ray myself.
Every rich and spoiled kid in my school has one don't see the fun of ones seeing how you cant make calls ere. beyond the point i heard Coraline was wicked too.
Whats up dude. U got an IPhone. Sweet dude. I would get one but dont have AT&T. I have T-Mobile. SO the best I can get is a sidekick or the G1 google phone.
Dudersaper: Hey man! Yeah, I havent seen you around since back in the FPS union. :P Thanks, and thanks for commenting. :D Savage: You definitely should get it, especially since you enjoyed the first. I mean, it is *another* FPS, but just something about it remained appealing throughout the entire game. As for the other games, I wouldnt bother with them untill they're cheaper. :P Thanks man. :D CombatSoldier: Thanks alot man. :D Iceman: Thanks. :D Fyrmest: What do you mean? Between it and the iPod Touch? Tudyniuz: Yeah, I can't really see replacing a perfectly good phone for no reason, but I happened to drop my phone in a rain filled gutter. So I thought why not upgrade. Zelda: :lol: Yup. Its alot of fun. And thanks! I kinda figured you would, given your avatar. :P Teenaged: Its not the slimmest thing in the world, but so far I haven't really been put off by the size. Good luck with your new phone, hope you enjoy it. Kleeyook: Well, I mostly just use mine to call my gf and some friends, and for them to call me. It's not like its ringing constantly. :P I know what you mean about waiting for games... its what Im going to have to do if they go up anymore in price. :| bigd: Im going to continue playing Sf4, so maybe it will grow on me. You never know. :P Anyways, yes, get your butt in to see Coraline. It owns. Roman: Well now, you do! :lol: Your a bigger fan of Street Figther then me i believe, so you may still be in love with this game when you get your hands on it. Problem is, I feel its mostly a fans game. I cant see it bringing any new fans honestly. Not die hard ones anyways. Its missing something. As for FEAR, your right. It is just another FPS, but the way its coupled with the story, scripted events, the slow motion ability, etc, it just took it above that level of mediocrity. Afro Samurai... yeah.... I didnt like the anime at all really either. The price tag was what inspired that purchase. :P Thomas-Crown: Glad to hear your doing well! Im doing alright myself, thanks. As I said in a previous comment, it definitely does have a little heft, but all its functionalities justify it. I havent really minded at all. Glad your enjoying SF4. Im not saying its a bad game by any means. Thats purely opinion based. The game just isnt for me. :lol:, Well, if you do end up getting Fear 2, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. And Im pretty hyped for KZ2 aswell. I was a big fan of the original even. jbot: Yep. I thought the exact same thing. I ruined my phone, my contract was up in a few days luckily, so I just went into AT+T to browse around. They handed me a little flier stating that price, and I got giddy. :lol: Niel: Thanks! :D Man, not many people have heard of Coraline! Its a grade A film. Im kind of shocked. :P Altiar: Your not alone. :P
Good to hear from you again. :) Congrats on your new iPhone! :D I haven't played any of those games so far. Wow I didn't even know about Coraline. :lol:
"(unlimited web/email/texts, 5000 nights and weekends, 45o anytime minutes, +rollover = $59.99)" Dude Really! Thats awesome, I thought it was much more than that; I thought content was going to be closer to $100 + a month. I know what I'm getting now!!
Hey Rav! I am fine. Much less busy than before. Thanks for asking. So, How are you? Love your iphone. iPhone is excellent...The features and software really justified the hype and anyone bragging about their iPhone. lol. :P My friend's got one which at first, I must say, I thought it was a waste of money but after he got it and start showing it to me, I love it. However, I still think is a little too bulky... For me, that is, which is the only reason stopping me from getting one myself. :P Well, enjoy which you already am. :P Wow! This is the second person in the day which said they didn't enjoy SFIV as much as they thought they would. Shocking because I love it. lol. May be is because I haven't played Street Fighter for a long time and to get an proper update version, well... Just can't get enough of it. :P And I haven't play Afo Samurai nor FEAR2... However, FEAR 2 I will definitely get... Probably along with Killzone 2. Yeah... happy days. lol. :P
iPhone, dang man thats awesome, I dont even know anyone that has one! lol Too bad about SFIV, I really want the game but I think I'll wait until RE5 comes out and Ive played that. Now FEAR 2 sounds like a great game, FPS games to me are like what you said about SFIV (been there done that) but FEAR 2 looks refreshing. Im not suprised about Afro, was never a fan of the show to begin with :P As for the movie, I havent even heard of it lol But now I might have to check it out.
I really liked SFIV I don't know maybe I'm just to big of a fan, Glad to hear that you enjoyed Fear 2. Afro Samurai I just passed it up lol never really wanted to play it anyway. I want to see Coraline so bad lol I really need to check it out.
Good for u. I own a cellphone which I never use (at least for alarm clack, and watch). No one ever rings me. :( I don't want to buy games on day one because it's still expensive. I'll wait till it reduces price. :P
I really should pick up F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. I liked the first F.E.A.R. and I played and liked the F.E.A.R. 2 demo. Haven't gotten around to any of the other games you listed. :P Coraline looks great. Awesome that you got an Iphone. Also, before I forget, that gif under were it says "Recent blog posts" is kick@$$. :D
Long time no see ;) Nice IPod, or IPhone, never knew the diference :( Nice to here your having fun with all the games and movies and stuff. :)
