It Is Not The Dark Side!

Yesterday I went out to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I've read a lot of reviews on the movie, few of them being good beforehand, but after actually seeing the movie, I just couldn't believe what I read. I'm not one to agree with movie reviews often. The action scenes were superb, along with an above average story. The fights between Wolverine and Sabertooth were absolutely brutal, even though whenever Sabertooth decided to run on all fours like a dog, It got a little bit cheesy for me. I can't say I was too happy with the dialogue, but I didn't go into the movie expecting too much, so it didn't hurt too bad. Overally, I think the movie is worth checking out for just about anyone.

I also went out and bought Metal Gear Solid 4 yesterday. I finished MGS 1 2 and 3 last year, so this is the last one in the series other than the portable games. I've spent the past 4 hours playing it, only stopping to write this blog and then go to work. It is a visually outstanding game by console standards, and I've really been missing some good stealth gameplay.

About to go to work, You guys have a good week!

Officially a PS3 Owner Now!

I went out to Best Buy today, and decided to purchase a PS3.

Just unboxed it an hour ago, and completed the first update.

Created my PSN account. My Username is DVzomb, and I'm looking for some friends to add on there, because at the moment I have none :(

I'll accept friend invites from anyone, just send them to me.

Also I've noticed that there is no sound coming from it, and the picture quality is awful on my HDTV.

Maybe that's because of the composite cables that came with it. Now I have to make a trip out to buy some Component cables.

I don't really have much for it right now, actually only Mirrors Edge. I'm thinking of picking up MGS4 on Friday.

There Goes That Memory.

Now that you've opened this blog, you may have noticed that I now have a new Banner and Avatar. My new theme is for the upcoming Assassins Creed 2 which I'm really hyped up for. I think that Mav_Destroyer from Designers Central did a great job with it, and I'm glad to have it on my profile.

I made a couple of purchases in the past two days. They were Pokemon Platinum along with a new Black DSi. Decided to take advantage of the trade-in deal that Gamestop were having where you can sell them your old DS lite for 70 dollars towards a DSi. I figured the new features it has would come in handy eventually, so the purchase felt like it was worth it. If you buy a DSi, you also get 1000 free points for the new DSi-Ware marketplace. I really haven't found any downloadable games that were worth it, so I'll probably save those points for now.

I've played Pokemon Platinum for around 2 hours now and can safely say that it's an enjoyable game. It actually feels very different from the old games that I remember playing years ago, but the improvements are all welcome. The old Pokemon formula is still there, so it really stays true to the other games in the series.

I went to see "Fast and the Furious" in theatres on Thursday, and I was left with mixed impressions. Overall, I do think the movie had some really intense race scenes, but what bothered me the most was just how dour it felt. I won't spoil anything for those who haven't seen it yet, but something happens in the beginning of the movie that just causes everyone to become furious to eachother i.e. Characters that were once friends now are rivals, and there really aren't many bonds between them until the end of the movie. This may not bother some people, but it's just not what I expected out of a "Fast and the Furious" film. Even though it has some faults, it does what it does best, and provides a fast paced, entertaining movie.

One of the Few, Fable 2

I just completed Fable 2, and it was the gaming experience I haven't had in a very long time. The plot actually managed to pull me in, and never let go. Some people said that the plot wasn't very good, but I disagree with that statement. I won't spoil anything to those of you that haven't played this superb game, but by the end of the game, I actually felt sad by what happened.

You're given some choices, and it's actually difficult to choose one. One of the many themes of Fable 2 is that you have to Sacrifice in order to get what you truly desire. The whole ending of the game is very dramatic and emotional. I haven't played a game in a long time that has an ending that sticks with me even after I wake up the next day.

Other than the ending, the whole game was fantastic. The atmosphere was stunning. It was vibrant, colorful, beautiful, etc. The quests were actually interesting, and some made you have to actually make decisions, and each decision lead into a different direction that the quest went into.

I might actually write a review on Fable 2. Haven't written any of those in a long time.

Long story short, Play this game, you won't regret it.

Now it's time for my second run through...

Mile High Club

This has got to be a joke.

An evil joke that is meant to drive people insane.

I have died 148 times trying to do this mission in COD4.

God am I pissed.:evil:

New Blogging Site.

Bleh, there's no way I can really regain everything I had on my GunnerVIII account here.

I'll continue blogging on blogspot.


My Xbox 360 Died.

Eh this is the second time.

I'm really hoping that the one they send back to me will work for good.

Atleast I got an english speaking support guy. The call took about 5 minutes!

If you've noticed that I haven't been online, it's because I've been on vacation since the 19th. Just got back yesterday.

Now I won't be online even longer.

I'm really hoping I don't miss the launch of GTAIV.

Criminals and Crowbars

That title didn't actually didn't make much sense. On Friday, I dropped by Gamestop to pick up a new game. I ended up picking up Condemned: Criminal Origins because the sequel is coming out this week, and it looks absolutely stunning. I put the game into my 360 at around 11 p.m., and was up playing until 1 a.m. enjoying every aspect of it. I spent most of Saturday playing, and about 3 hours today.....and then the credits rolled. Interestingly enough, I never thought that I'd Love this game as much as I do now. Since this was a 2005 game, it's not all that visually impressive, but let me tell you, hitting a psychopath with a sledge hammer has never been more satisfying. I was on high alert at all times, sticking to the walls and constantly looking back.

There were a handful of moments that made me jump. My hands were literally shaking by the last few levels of the game. I was a bit dissappointed that the game was so short, since I think I clocked in at about 8 hours on the normal difficulty setting. It really isn't a big deal, since the game was only $20. It would've been a problem if it was still $60 though. I just checked out the Condemned 2 trailer again to see if there was anything in it that I could understand better after playing through the first game, but the only thing I could find was that Ethan Thomas looked nothing like he did in the original. It wasn't the longer hair or beard that made him look different, but more like the entire shape of his head, and pale skin.

I also thought that you were at a huge disadvantage when the enemy had a shotgun, and you had a fire axe. I can't even tell you how many times I died early on in the game to those kinds of enemies, until I realized that they were stupid enough to shoot at a wall until their ammo was depleted. The AI doesn't make very good use of firearms, but they sure do make good use of close combat weapons. I found it amazing when I hit an enemy, and he'd pretend to be hurt, only to turn around and whack you one when you least expected it.

I'll definately be picking up Condemned 2 this week....as long as it's a bit longer. If any of you haven't had the chance to play Condemned yet, I urge you to right away.

New Account = Lack of Posts

Actually, ever since I deleted everything from my old account, and abandoned it, I informed all of my old trackers who I was, and alot of them were really good friends to me, and posted in each and every one of my blogs, thus causing me to do the same for them. I told them how I made this new account in either their blogs or private messages, but I got no response back, and no comments on any of my new blogs. Only 2 of my friends actually wanted to hold relations with me.

I say forget them. If they were actually friends, then they would have wanted to remain friends and not just forget about me.
