Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

So I recently competed a few games including Shadow of Mordor and Killzone: Shadow Fall. Shadow was an excellent game, minus the ending which was average at best. The game is definitely a combination of Assassin's Creed and the Batman Arkham series, but that is certainly not a bad thing. I completed about 90% of the game and achieved about 90% of the trophies as well. Killzone was pretty average. I enjoyed some of the set pieces that occurred during the game, but it definitely is average and the story is forgettable. Right now I am playing Far Cry 4 and Rage. Seems weird to be playing Rage since its old now, but I've always wanted to play it. I'm also playing GTA V on the PS4.

I really should start writing my own personal reviews on these games. Maybe I'll do it starting with Far Cry 4. Not that anyone is even reading this blog entry besides myself, but hey, it gives me something to do before my schedule gets hectic again with my Spring semester of Graduate classes starting up on January 20th.

The End of 2014

Hope everyone had a wonderful and happy holiday!

I got a few games for Christmas including Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed Rogue and God of War: Ascension. Haven't played the last two games yet. I also just completed Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and wow, what a great experience. I completed about 90% of the game and about 90% of the trophies. I would try to go for the platinum trophy but I might hold off on that for a couple weeks and play some other games.

Outside of gaming I'm just enjoying my winter break until grad classes start up again later next month. I'm working from home for the Rutgers Oral History Archives editing, transcribing and creating indexes for interviews. I'm actually looking forward to going back to school since it'll be my last full semester in the program. I plan on taking two summer online classes and finishing up my degree next Fall in 2015 with just one class that semester.

Anyway, back to gaming: I am pretty much focusing on Far Cry 4 now and I might work on God of War today. I also got an older PS3 game, Folklore, and so far it's pretty interesting. I have always wanted to play the game so I finally purchased it off Amazon for like $12. I also bought GTA V for PS4, and I also got, Heavy Rain, Castlevania, Killzone: Shadow Fall, and Rage. All those games came from a GameStop B2G1 sale.

Hope everyone has a great day and new year!

It's been awhile ...

So I just realized that it has been a long time since I have posted a blog here on Gamespot. A lot has happened in the past couple of years including getting my BA in History and I am currently halfway through my Masters Degree program at Rutgers University. Now that it is winter break for me, it's time to sit back and play some games and just relax. I got my Playstation 4 a little less than a year ago. My first game was Assassin's Creed Black Flag and my library has grown just a bit since then. I just beat the Evil Within last night and to be honest, I was not impressed. I remember the early previews for this game were promising, then for a good period of time most of the previews were negative. Right before the game came out all of a sudden the previews were good again. So I bought it on Amazon and at first I was pretty impressed. It definitely has that Resident Evil feel. However, the story makes no sense, at least not for me. The game is also extremely tough as I died over 120 times throughout my play through but that is not a bad thing; a challenge is a good thing.

Anyway, I am now still playing Destiny and Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. I'm hoping to get Far Cry 4 for Christmas. I'm also still have my good ol' PS3 and 360 plugged in and it is really strange reading my older posts saying how excited I was to get both of those systems when they were new. But I am still playing them and will continue to do so. PSN offers some good free games and right now I'm playing Mirrors Edge, Saints Row 3, Hitman Collection and the PS1 classic, Suikoden I. I'm not the biggest JRPG fan, but I've heard so many great things that I had to try it out. 360 wise I am playing an Xbox classic called Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. I'm not far into the game, but so far it seems pretty interesting. I also just beat Silent Hill 2 again, this time on the Xbox instead of the PS2. I still love that game and the ending is just great.

While life is busy at times, I'm glad I still get the chance to sit back and play some games. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with what I got but that's why I have to beat them! For now I just plan on getting Far Cry 4 and then hopefully purchasing the reissued GTA V for PS4. Other things have happened in the past couple of years including being an employee at Gamestop. That was an interesting experience, but I'm not really much of a salesperson. The location I was working at closed up on March 30th and I was not issued another job which is okay because well, first, I didn't like it, and second, graduate school was enough work and stress to go through.

Anyway I hope 2015 is another great year! I should be done with graduate school at the end 2015 and hopefully I will find a big boy job either near my location or somewhere else. I doubt anyone will read this but I think I am going write more often. I might post my PS3 collection soon as I have done that for my PS2. My PS3 days are far from over though and I plan on playing and getting more games in the future.

Happy gaming!

Xbox is done until spring

I decided to purchase my other 360 probably in the Spring of 2013. Hopefully there will be a price cut on the system. Till then i will not finish my Mass Effect 3 saga, however I will have plenty of PS3 games to play.

Happy Gaming!

Its been a long time!

Okay since I last posted on here my original 360 died :/ However, I bought a Halo 3 edition 360 from a cousin of mine for $60. Since then I got back into playing Mass Effect. I had the original (ME1) when it came out in 2007. But somehow I forgot all about ME until my best friend purchased ME2 on Ps3. He fell in love with the game and series and he got my back into the series as well. So i purchased the second game and fell in love with it. Although I like the RPG elements better in the first, the action and gameplay is solid in the second game. I have yet to get the 3rd and this is where I need my fellow Gamers opinions.



So now I have no 360 again and I probably won't get it until I have the money and maybe another price drop too. So...well I have a PS3 and right now I'm replaying MGS4 because the trophies were added. Love this game! Anyway my question to you, my fellow gamers is this: my birthday is coming up in Sept. and I am trying to think of a game I want. I really want to play ME3 but like I mentioned, my 360 is dead and I'm not planning on buying a new one anytime soon. With that, should I just get ME3 for Ps3? I know the story won't carry over, like it did for me on ME1 to ME2. But I really want to play Mass Effect 3 and end the saga that I started so long ago. My friend even said I can borrow ME2 on Ps3 in the meantime if I want to make some decision making beforehand.

So my question is/was: should i get mass effect 3 even though its on a totally different system?

If not: what should I get for my bday?

Here is a list of what I am thinking about:

Batman: Arkham City

Max Payne 3

Deus EX: HR

Killzone 3

Resistance 3

Silent Hill: Downpour

I generally like action and adventure games. I have Skyrim and RDR and MGS4 and all the Uncharted Games, RE5, MGS Collection, Silent Hill Homecoming, etc...

Give me suggestions!!!!!


360 has been dead for awhile

Well my ps3 and 360 both decided to die at one point, thankfully i got enough money to replace the PS3 but not the 360 and i dont know when that will happen because my job barely gives me hours and i am in college. so i have no money lol. luckily the roommate has 360 so i can play my games again, especially NHL 11 which i was addicted too and i was not even an NHL fan lol. that game is just pure awesome though and i appreciate NHL Sport Games more than any other Sport games out there. Well my first GameSpot blog in a long time, since playing RDR. Haven't really played a lot since then. Just NHL 11', Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Enslaved, Infamous (thanks to PSN giving it out for free) and Castlevania Lord of Shadow and eventually Crysis 2 when i borrow that from a friend. Till then, i hope to get my new 360 and get Battlefield 3, mass effect 3, and a bunch of 360 games. peace!

Red Dead Redemption

Playing RDR on 360. Freakin awesome game. The online is a little tricky, but i'll get use to it. So far its way better than GTAIV. Dont get me wrong, GTA4 wasn't a badd game, but it got boring with those stupid and pointless missions. The shootouts in RDR feel more realistic. Im not that far yet, but it doesnt seem too long also.

PS3 Died for the last Time. OMG!!!!

Yeah my ps3 died like 26 days ago. Forgot to mention that again... oh well. i got no money to buy a new one for now. Saving up for my vacation to Virgina in August. At least i have my 360 in working condition. I swear when i bought my ps3 is most have secretly been a 360. Currently playing Battlefield BC2 and Shadow Complex.

PS3 is back!

Had my ps3 for about a weeknow. I beat God of War 3. What a great game and a great series on the playstation 3. One of the best, no doubt. I beat the challenges in that game and man was that hard, but worth it. Now im playing my friends InFamous. So far its a really fun game. I'm also playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 on my 360 and replaying Gears 2. I'm hoping to replay Dead Space and Batman AA very soon as well and Getting REd Dead very soon.

PS3 Died Again

My PS3 died yet again. Sent it to gophermods for a free repair. Hopefully it work better next time. Currently borrowing my friends Battlefield Bad Company 2 for 360 while I wait. Pretty awesome game. I love the online play and especially Rush mode.
