This blog is coming to you because... I am being distracted from homework xD. Well, I did a hell of a lot of homework yesterday, so today I really don't have much. Just math and maybe study up on Bio so I am not super lost tomarrow xD. Anyways, before we start this blog off with the obvious topics, I would like to take a short moment to honor all those who helped or was lost during 9/11 ten years ago. It was a very traggic event for our country, but 10 years later we still stand tall and strong. To all those who lost someone and are still around today and to anyone who helped with the choas and clean up afterwards... I thank you and wish the best for you and your family
Ok, now that I got that of my chest, let's jump into the actual topics as hand, shall we
1) Remember how last post I talked about how I ordered Pokemon White off Amazon for a friend of mine? Well, it already shipped and Amazon never charged me... what? I was a little worried it might be my card or my account or something, so I decided to order a Xbox Microsoft Points Code online just to make sure everything was ok and it was... so, I guess I got Pokemon White for free xD? I know I should be complaining cause it was free, but I just hope this won't come to bit me in the rear later, then again, it's only 30 bucks, and since I always have $50 in my account anyways, I should have nothing to worry about. Anyways, so I got points I decided to get 2 games with the points. The first game I decided to pick was Dead Rising 2: Case West, a downloadable Co-Op designed around Chuck Greene and Ranks West teaming up to finally clear Chuck's name. I have only played about an hour of it, and I can see that I will enjoy it, as long as I have someone to play it with. I loved Dead Rising for not only the co-op, but just the freedom in the game, allowing for multipule playthroughs. I can see the same deal for Case West and these Achievements look easy enough to get me another 200 Free Gamerscore... I am so close to 40,000 too. Xbox, why do you do this to me xD...
2) Now, since Case West was only 800 Microsoft points plus my spare points I had from the Call of Duty Maps, that left me with around 1500 Microsft Points... enough for Street Figther 3: 3rd Strike Online Edition. I have been waiting for this port for a while and I am I played it yesterday for about 3-4 hours, just testing out characters and seeing who I like. I know I will never be pro at Street Figther games, as I usually don't have the patience or time to dedicate myself to mastering crazy combos and I don't have a stick, so I can't do half of them. I am better then the casual crowd, but I ain't no pro. Somewhere in the middle... "Recreation" occording to Xbox Live xD. I played a good amount this morning of Online Tournements, since the servers are still down for Ranked and Video Streaming, which is still rather depressing, but the matches I played where all Lag Free, but it might be because only a small amount of people are playing the game online xD. So far, I am continuing my love for Charge Charcters in the forms of Urien and Q. Urien is really good, but I can't really master his more advanced combos, and Q is just awesome. He plays like Balrog a bit, except with a super awesome theme. I have noticed online a lot of people either play Ken or Chun Li, as both of those characters are pretty broken, and before I started typing this, I got worked by a Yang... who I also pretty over-powered xD. I am enjoying it, but i can deffiently see the complexity of the game, and I can see that the Parry System is HUGE in this game, as even though I can't pull of advanced combos, I have watched so many players that I usually know the basic attacks of the character and I can see paterns easily, so I can easily just start parrying and avoid damage while gaining meter to use a super or EX move. I might pick up Chun Li because she I love her to death, but Q seems to be my favorite at the moment... I still have no idea why xD.
So that is the blog people. I hope you enjoyed this post and I will get back to you hopefully this tuesday. Until that, stay gold and I will catch you all later... also, I have no idea why, but I feel like ending with another picture of May xD
