Hi everyone, I got some updates for you, mostly about games. I haven't updated you all about anything in a while, so this blog might take a while to read.
First off, on the 15th I got my reserved copy of:
In case you don't know yet, this is a game where you can spawn nearlyany item you can think of. There are over 20,000 items to use. You use the items to help solve puzzles, or just to goof off in the sandbox mode on the main menu.
This game rocks. Sure, it may have some control issues, and some items are repeats of other items (for example, BB Gunis the same as Airgun), but ultimatley the game is incredibly fun, addicting, and challenging. Trying to solve new puzzles without using items you have used before (to earn more ollars, the games currency) can get quite hard if you do are not very creative and don't know a lot of words to type.
Altogether, I think this game deserves at least an 8.5 so far, though I won't officially rate it until I have played it some more.
Another game, which I picked up for my PSP a few weeks ago, is:
This is a fun, cartoony puzzle game, in which you must figure out how to save people from deadly situations. It's pretty awesome and has a lot of levels, and once you finishthe levels included with the game, you can download puzzles off of the games website via PSP for free, and they nearly double the amount of puzzles in the game! So there's a lot here. The only thing I hate about the game, is that the lines that the people you need to rescue have are very limited, and are repeated too frequently.
Altogether, it'sa recommendable puzzle game, though not the best one out there it is well worth the $10 I payed for it, and gets an 8.0 from me. Though, if Gamespot were to allow us .1 increments in our ratings again, it would truly be a 7.8.
Yet another game, one I got for PC several weeks ago, is:
Morrowind: Game Of The Year Edition
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is my first from this series. Some of you may say something like "Why Morrowind? Why not Oblivion?", to which I will say; First off, I cannot play "M" rated games in my house, it is a rule my parents have set, and one which I will respect. I do play "M" titles outside of our house, but no one I know has Oblivion, and it's not the kind of game you go to your friends house to play. Also, My current PC, I believe, would not handle the game, and I don't have a 360, so I'd be out of luck anyway.
That aside, Morrowind is absolutely amazing. Never before have I been this addicted to a PC RPG. The graphics in the vanilla (un-modded) version of this game are amazing in my opinion. Oh sure, there not compared to nowadays games, but without actually comparing this to nowadays game, I see a lot of beauty within this world called Morrowind. The map is incredibly gigantic, especially since I have the Game of the year edtion which has both expansion packs.
The possibilities are truly endless. I have an Imperial Knight right now, which I am currently using to do the main quest. But aside from that character, I have many save files inwhich I am many different cla$$es, including a few I made
In one of my saved games, I am a Redguard "Elite Assassin", which is a cla$$ I created to be similar in ways to the regular asassincla$$ but excels in axe combat rather than short blade combat. I am in the Morag Tong, the hard to find assassins guild. It is fun to get a writ of execution, and set out to, withing the law, dispatch enemies that have done some sort of crimes.
In yet another saved game, I am a Khajit Thief, which I named Ombra (Italian for shadow, found that out thanks to wordmonkey.info), and I am in the Thieves guild with him, and it is fun, yet challenging, to go around and stealth-fully steal objects for quests.
I cheated in one of my profiles to become a werewolf, and that is just awesome as well, lol. :lol:
So, if I were to write a five word review for this game, likepeople can nowdo for movies on Fandango.com, I would say; Breathtaking, Immersive, Addicting, Exciting, fun. And give it a score of 9.5. :)
Now for non-game related updates:
First off, I am now level 39 here on Gamespot, which is called "Max Force"!
You may have heard of the Heroes Tournament that is going on here on Gamespot, well I entered a bracket in, but upon editing it only once after posting it, and forgetting to fix it up before the competition started, I misssed an emblem as the stupid thing didn't count my bracket as official, because with that one edit it seems I didn't select a final hero to win (though I distinctly remember selecting one).
I think it should have been put together better, like give a warning when trying to save an unfinished bracket to let you know it is unfinished. Oh well, it's just an emblem... I did get one at least, for voting to add characters into the contest, here is that emblem and it's description:
"This emblem shows that you got into GameSpots Greatest Game Hero competition on the ground floor by voting for the 10 additional characters added to the main list. Rock the vote!".
Recently I got a CD from a band I like called Disciple. The album is called "By God", and was originally released back in 2001, but the remastered version I have is from 2004. It is an amazing album, with about 19 songs, and one bonus sermon at the end. I now 5 of Disciples albums, and I plan to see if I can get some of their earlier albums from the 90's.
My favorite band Pillar is going to release a new album sometime this month. I heard it online for free as a limited time stream via NewReleaseTuesday.com, a Christian music site, and I have to say it isn't the best Pillar album ever (nothing could out-beat their Fireproof album, in my opinion), but it still is great.
I'm sad though, I have never gotten to see Pillar in concert, and now 2 band members, Kalel the bassist and Lester the drummer, are gone. They joined another band, a pop rock/ soul band called Stars Go Dim. Stars Go Dim actually sounds pretty good, but now I'll never get to see the Pillar guysI know together in concert. The two new members of Pillar look to rockstar-ish. And Rob, the lead singer, has adopted this look as well. It's not that the look in itself is bad, it's just they don't look cool that way, imo.
I have seen some movies since the last time I wrote a blog, but I don't want to take too much time talking about them since this blog is already long, so I'll just be brief in talking about them:
G.I. Joe: I had low expectations for this movie, but it turned out pretty good, I recommend it.
9: Too short, and the ending isn't very good in my opinion. If there's nothing else out, it's an ok choice, but otherwise I recommend waiting for this one to come out on DVD.
Well, that's all for now. I hope you all have a great weekend. Take care, and God bless! :D
