Arrrgggghhhh, My PS3 bit the dust!

by on

I never thought it would happen to me but on Tuesday morning my 40 gig Phat PS3 got the dreaded YLOD. What sucks even more is that I won't have the money to repair it until next month. I'm a sad panda.....:cry:

Gears of War Freakin Rocks!!!!!!

by on

So I recently started playing Gears of War and I must say the game is simply amazing. I can't believe I just started playing this game after months of having it. From the awesome graphics to the stellar gameplay, GOW is the total package. If you have an XBOX 360 and love action games then this game is a must have. I haven't tried the multi-player yet but I will once I beat the campaign. I will be attending my local Gamestop's midnight release for GOW3 so I'm really excited for it. I don't know when I'll play it though, I still need to beat part 1 & 2 first but I will soon. Take care and Happy Gaming.

I think I bit off more than I could chew......

I seem to be having a problem that's been troubling me as of late. Lately I've been buying games en masse and because of this my backlog is getting pretty huge. Am I the only one suffering from this gaming affliction? I love to game and I do it a lot but now I don't know what to play half the time. I know what you are thinking, and yes, maybe I shouldn't buy so many games at once but because I'm a game collector as well, I must have the latest and greatest games currently out.

Well my friends, here lies my dilemma. Since I buy so many games at once, I tend to start and stop playing most of my games to jump to the next game I recently acquire. It's a terrible habit but I still do it anyways. Back in the day I used to play one game until completion and then move on to the next one. Now I just play a game until I get bored or until the next new game comes out leaving said game unfinished. So what should I do? Do I play one game at a time or should I juggle multiple games at once to stave off boredom? Either way I know something must be done because at this rate I won't play any game until I at least finish something.

If you are reading this then I thank you for reading my rant. I just needed to vent because I thought I was going crazy. Whew, now I feel much better. On unrelated news, I haven't been posting much on my blog and I plan to rectify that as soon as possible. I guess I didn't have much to say but now I feel like a motor-mouth and can't stop yappin, lol. Anyways, I think I'm gonna sign off for now. Take care and God bless. Peace!

BlazBlue: I think I'm in love.

by on

It's been a while since I played a fighter that had such outstanding polish and and overall quality

such as Arc System Works latest brawler, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. From the moment I inserted

the disc into my PS3 I knew I was in for a real treat. BlazBlue is full of a colorful cast of characters

that are all cool in their own ways. The battles are fast and fierce and the the soundtrack that goes

along with it is full of catchy tunes that set the mood perfectly. My only gripe with the game is that

I wish there were more characters to choose from but this can be remedied by way of dlc in the

future (keeps fingers crossed) but make no mistake - Blazblue is based on quality over quanity

and I I totally respect that. Speaking of quality the game's graphics are to die for. Anyone who

says 2-D is dead clearly hasn't seen BlazBlue in motion. The sprites are like poetry in motion,

really a sight of beauty to behold. I can write a novel of how awesome BlazBlue is but i'll cut it

short. If you like fighting games that have a deep fighting system and have gorgeous visuals

as well then BlazBlue is just what the doctor ordered. This game is awesome, 'nuff said!

Valkyria Chronicles: Why aren't you buying this game?

by on

Valkyria Chronicles, IMO, has got to be one of the coolest games I've ever played! From the gripping storyline to the beautiful graphics, VC has it all! It's really a shame that this game isn't doing well in sales while craptasic games continue to make millions ( cough, cough, Shaun White Snowboarding). Now I hear that the price for VC has dropped to $30 dollars. That's a STEAL for this gem of a title! If you haven't bought this game yet or have lingering doubts do yourself a favor and pick up this awesome game. You won't regret it!

P.S. If you haven't heard already, Valkyria Chronicles has an anime out. Be sure to be on the look out for it. If it's anything like the game I'm sure it's gonna rock!

Metal Gear Solid 4 - Too awesome for mere words to describe!

by on

On Saturday, August 15 around 1:36 a.m. I believe I have played one of the greatest games I have played in my life! You guessed it; I'm talking about the much ballyhooed Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots. At first I didn't want to believe the hype. I'm not one to be easily swayed by popular opinion but everyone and their mother suggested that I play MGS4 so I gave it a try. Lo and behold I am writing this blog with shattered senses after playing such an awe inspiring game. I can't even call MGS4 a game because that would almost trivialize it. Rather, it's more of an experience that you simply must see for yourself if you own a PS3. Hell, even if you don't own a PS3 or don't care for games in general this is the title that will make almost anyone into a believer. From the jaw-dropping, pristine graphics (This game is best played on a HDTV set on 1080p resolution. Anything lower would be an insult to the game and yourself. Trust me!) With a magnificent music soundtrack to the awesome sound effects, this title is packing some serious heat. The game play is top notch with ultra precise controls and intuitive level design that is so well thought out that it boggles the mind how talented the developers are. Wow! Hideo Kojima, you seriously rock dude! I just recently started playing (I'm in act 1 still) but judging by the level of quality I've witnessed thus far I can tell I'm in for one hell of a ride!

The Future of Gaming

Another year just came and went and now we are faced with the year 2008.There are so many unlimited possibilities for gaming it's unreal! I remember back in the day Street Fighter II was the undisputed king of the arcade and Super Mario World was the greatest game (to me at least) to come out in a long time. These games had a certain captivating charm about them that kept gamers coming back for more. Fast-forward to '08 and we have such promising titles like Spore, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Final Fantasy XIII, and Grand Theft Auto IV are just a few titles that seem to be brimming with awesomeness throughout. I can't wait for what the future holds for us gamers in the long run. Bring it!
