What I've Been Playing & Future Blog Ideas

Not much going on in my brain lately to be creative enough to post anything worth a crap on this blog or over on This Xbox Life. I'll just post some thoghts on games I've been playing.

First up is STAR WARS THE FORCE UNLEASHED. Man, it's fun to play as Darth Vader's evil apprentice! Using the force to pick up harmless little Jawa's and smash them into walls has got to be one of the funniest video game moments I've ever encountered. Electrifying countless Stormtroopers and doing various other harmful things to enemies is so satisfying. I really don't have much that's negative to say about this game so far. It's fun.

Prince Of Persia is a beautiful game. There have been some frustrating sections mostly due to the controls at times when controling the prince matters the most. The good thing about this game is that you can't die. It also happens to be the bad thing about this game. There are no consequences. Before I try wall walking and jumping to the next section I'm never stressed because I know I can't die. I do know exactly why you can't die though. You fall a lot. You will fall many many many many times. If you died every time you fell nobody would ever want to play past the first fertile land. Right now I'm renting this. I'm in no hurry to get back to it. As Axl Rose would say "All we need is just a little patience". I just don't have the patience for this game most of the time. It's a fun game, but I can only play it in one hour chunks before I start to go mad. I'll buy this when I find it for around 20 bucks.

I also played Viva Pinata Party Animals just for achievement points. UGH! This game is mind numbing. It's so boring. I played it with my wife. She said she was offended by the fact that I chose to play this simple minded game with her. In my defense she's not good at games, so I figured she could handle this one. The fact that I beat her every time we played this should tell you something about how bad she is at games.

I also have Eternal Sonata on standby. I'll probably dig into that RPG world when I finish Star Wars.

While listening to a certain cd the other day I decided that I'll spend some time blogging about albums that I think are classic picking a different album and commenting on it here. Most will be Metal/hard rock albums that I just don't think I would want to live without. Basically albums that I worship. Look for that soon. I plan on getting back into the swing of blogging a hell of a lot more often.

You get my mail on PS3? LOL

I like the last update with the pictures thing.

I also have been surfing with my ps3, reminds me of webtv now.

I downloaded some demos, I also downloaded some skins for my ps3. I didnt know about them. They are cool. Im using the Resistance 2 skin but I downloaded a couple of the others, including fallout 3. Havnt tried any except R2, so far.

Demos I tried NFL Coach, was not much to do. You dont get to play just manage the team and call plays. I tried Beijing 2008. Crappy game.

Now, Resident Evil 5 demo.

I had a big problem trying to aim and shoot. Terrible problem for me. You have to aim with the top left button and shoot with the top right. It's very hard to do. I tried the other controller options and it was worse. I could not play the demo at all.

I haven't fired my PS3 up in a while. I'll get your mail the next time I play a game. I have no idea when that will be though. LOL

I messed around online with the PS3 a while ago. I decided to check out Youporn with my woman sitting next to me. She didn't even care. She's getting so much cooler in her older age...not that she's old at 34, but you know what I mean.

I'm still using the Condemned 2 skin. It's got some gruesome shit on it.

Man, that RE5 demo pissed me off. The gameplay is so dated. Total tank controls. I want to be able to move and shoot, damn it! I lasted about 10 minutes and had to quit playing. I don't even think I'm gonna rent RE5.

I MIGHT rent it, MAYBE. I sure won't buy it.

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
