Before we really get into this blog I want to warn you now that I will most likely be jumping all over the place in this one.
I guess I'll start with a question, and that question is.
Have any of you read about "Orbis"?
If not, let me fill you in. Orbis is the codename for what will apparently be the Playstation 4.
I'm guessing this codename came from a guy who knows a guy who has connections with the president (because is that not how most of these ridiculous claims make there way onto the Internet) but I couldn't confirm any of that if I wanted to because lets be honest, I don't really care about any supposed Playstation 4 when I've already got a perfectly healthy Playstation 3. Anyway, what I would like to say about the "Orbis" is that I read an article on 1up.com and it basically said that much like the rumours of the next gen Xbox, the next gen Playstation will also be digital only. In the sense that there wont be a disc drive or any hard copies of games.
I never did finish the article nor am I really interested in doing so but if you feel the need to read it, here it is.
By this point in the blog your probably wondering why the title is what it is. Well let me tell you, I called it that simply because I am writing this at nearly 10:00 am and haven't slept. Which would then mean that I have been awake all night. Damn Insomnia!
On a side note, I've really been enjoying Fight Night Champion.
I have been playing nothing but Legacy Mode and so far my career is something like 5-6 wins and 4-5 losses. I'm not exactly sure. I also just bought the Bare Knuckle Mode and can honestly say It is quite fun but really, why was it not included in the game? It's a sad day when I'm paying 3.99 to unlock a menu option in a game.
For those of you wondering about my Just Cause 2 situation, I really like the game but unfortunately can never really find the time to play it because it seems like If im not in the exact right mood to play the game then I end up having absolutely no fun.
Anyway, because this blog seems to have no real direction or sense of order I want to take the time to ask you all about placing pictures in my blogs, do you prefer it? Or would you rather the blog be just text and no image?
If you haven't got an opinion that's fine too, I'll just pretend you like the pictures.
Also, who agrees with me when I say Gamespot just feels.. well, off these days. I'm not sure how to describe it but an old friend of mine who most of if not all of you probably already know (Venom_Raptor) recently made a blog where he said "Gamespot just isn't as good as it used to be" and I could not have said it better myself.
Check out his blog here if you haven't already.
What I think I find most displeasing about the way Gamespot is today is all of this FUSE business. It feels like I have to jump through a hundred hoops just to find my friends blogs. It used to be so easy, I would click on friends and be shown a list of friends and from there could go to any of their profiles.
When I try that now, nothing at all similar happens. Instead I'm sent to the FUSE page which feels like a completely different website, a website that is nothing but broken.
It sure does seem like Gamespot is going backwards, or rolling down a hill or falling in a hole.
There is a saying I'm sure you've all heard, "All great things must come to an end".
Maybe we're seeing the beginning of the end for Gamespot but that could also be a bit of a stretch since it is such a huge website.
Maybe we are just seeing a rocky patch in Gamespots life span. Either way, we must all still find something to like about it because we all keep coming back. If it's not for the website itself then perhaps for the community? I'm sure if the community wasn't half as good as it is I wouldn't even be here right now.
Now I just feel like I'm starting to trail off into something better left for an entirely different blog so I'm going to stop myself here and ask you all, what have you been up to in the last week?
