It's been a very long time since I've been on here. I had high hopes when I first began, but life took twists that were unexpected. Don't get me wrong, I've still played a lot of games, just lost touch with passing the word on. The last couple of weeks (just for spilling the more recent), I've played Just Cause 2 (free download, per psn+) The Saboteur, Batman : Arkham City, Max Payne 3 and many more. It sucks that I got lack luster with this, because recently I've noticed a lot of games getting scores on this website that they shouldn't get. I think I might have to make a somewhat return, to at least deter people from making mistakes that the "rating" system is giving. This was just a short post to say that I'm back. (Also, it took 3 different email password resets to find this one again...so that could have been why I couldn't get on. haha.)
Well, I'll say I was pleased with Prototype. It was as good as I expected. When I first started, I'll say I was disappointed, because the controls felt so loose. Compared to inFamous, at least. But as I started playing through, I realized that if they were as tight, it'd been weird, and probably a lot harder to play. It basically had what I complained about with inFamous. The story was longer (for me, at least), and the world seemed bigger. Running up buildings was absolutely a dream come true, as opposed to having to climb. The move list was pretty big, as well. A lot of moves get replaced, as you get further in, which is fine, cause it kept it fresh, but some moves, I almost never used. I did like how the changing of moves flowed easily, and wasn't all crazy like I was sorta expecting. The story was pretty good, in my own opinion. Nothing really frustrated me like most games tend to do, either. It was a relief. I'm not saying the game was a cake walk, but with so many options and ways to choose from, to do something, it wasn't a mad rush to try to do the same thing the same way and fail over and over again.
Just like inFamous, if you do not have this game, I highy, HIGHLY recommend it.
Other things I've been doing in the gaming world:
Call of Duty : World at War. I've been leveling up, as usual. I'm now a level 56 I think, Prestige 1. I can't remember the level, but I know I'm a Brig General III. I really like that game. I usually don't get into FPSs, but I dunno, it's fun to play. I also don't like playing online games, but again, it's a fun game. Anyone that wants a...I guess small challenge, can look me up, as I post myPSN a lot. (For any game, really, not just CoD. PSN: Bearrie)
MapleStory : I've been playing this a pretty fair amount, as well. I'm now a 137 hero, at 73%. This game really is a drug, for those who have never played it. It's a free (if you don't buy nexors) MMO game, that makes you want to level A LOT. If not just for yourself, you have enough competition in the game to make you want to level till you can't stand playing anymore. I'm also a damage *insert random bad word here*, so I tend to spend a lot of money to make my character strong. I'll probably play tonight, so I can level. haha.
Other things I need to work on :
Infamous and Prototype : All I really need to do for these two games now, is get 100%. I'm aiming to get all the trophys, but for Prototype, that seems a bit harder. One of the trophys is killing 5 or less civilians? Man...I kill more than that in any single mission. Anyway, that's just my goal for those two.
GTAIV : I was like half way through the game, but every time I started it, it told me I'd have to restart to get the trophys, and I finally did it. Now I don't wanna play it. I don't know why, but it's not fun to me. Not as much as San Andreas was. I was actually pretty disappointed with it. The main thing is the way cars handle. It's so hard to control them at high speeds.
All the rest of my games : Just beat them. haha. Try to get all the trophys, from the ones that have them.
MapleStory : Keep leveling, get my guild big, and finish quests. Anyone who plays, and is in the Bera server, add me. MasaBearrie is my IGN.
Other than that, have a good day.Bearrie out.
I'm going to go ahead and say, this is one of my favorite games of all time. Not cause it's just the "new thing" nor cause it's a PS3 exclusive. I thoroughly enjoyed this game. A few glitches aside, this was awesome. The skills was nice, the open world was sweet. My only problems with it were the story being too short, the glitches, as I said, which weren't terrible, but some parts it didn't help, I'd liked the world to be bigger, and I'd like the good/evil sides to have a few more differences, like the story, and how all the skills were pretty much the same, just with a few exceptions and colors. The enemies get kinda tough, when you're a good guy, cause you can't just wipe everyone out like you can as a bad guy, or it goes against your karma.
Overall, if you don't have this game, I highly, HIGHLY recommend getting it. Now I can't wait for Prototype. It's looking pretty good as well.
Alright, just sticking this out there. My PSN is Bearrie. My rank is Lt. General., working towards Commander. If anyone wants to play, add me. I usually play with a friend that I work/live with. If anyone wants to start like a good team/squad, let me know. I'm game for getting them points. So yeah, add me or whatever, and game on.

Alright, so I started prestige last night, I'm around level 20 or so, and working my way up pretty fast compared to my go as the regular ranks. I'm pretty pleased with my accomplishments this time around. I wasn't gonna do it, but my friend that I normally play with did, so I decided to take a go with it, as well. It sort of made the game fun for a minute again. Anyway, just putting that out there.

I'm not sure what happened, but the last time I checked, I was level 20, closer to 21, and now I'm 19, with 17%... I know I don't get on here as much as I used to, but uh, do we lose % for not signing on everyday or what? Just a little clueless on the leveling system.
Anyway, what I've been up to. So, I have a fair library for the PS3, now. The lastest two that I've been playing are Guitar Hero 3, and Guitar Hero : World Tour. Both of which, I do pretty well at. I'm not on hard, yet, but on medium, I'm in the 90-95%s, with an occasional 100% here and there. Neither of which fill my craving for a story. I was playing Prince of Persia, but it sort of got boring. I mean, it's pretty much impossible to have any depth to it when you can't die at all, which means you don't have anything to really care about. It's still a fun game, though. I still haven't beat Assassin's Creed. It got a little boring, too, as you always have to do the same things over and over, with only unlucking anew skill or two after each session.
What else. Well, I'm usually on this one game my friends play. Maple Story or whatever. It's a kid's game, but it's not too shabby,I guess. I like RPG's, so it fits. It's a little kiddish, depending on who you meet, but other than that, it's an alright game, I suppose. Hmm. That's about it,I guess. Looking forward to some of the newer games coming out. I guess I'll wait and see what the future holds. Yep.
So, I have a friend that comes over regularly, and we tend to play Mario Kart 64 on the Wii for the lack of Co-op games that I have for my PS3. I have Resistance 2 and Conflict : Denied Ops, but I'm looking for more. Resistance 2 is a good game, but when we play, his stats reset when we quit playing, and it becomes boring when he has to level back up to make it worth while. He usually uses the medic, and I am the soldier. (Any assistance on that would be appreciated, too, unless it's unhelpable) Anyway, I'm just curious to what games could be fun to play that have a good story, and play fairly well that we could play together on one system. Any help is greatly appreciated.
