Active On Gamespot Again

Hey everyone, once again, as you may have noticed, I sort of decreased my activity here on Gamespot for a while. I have been on, about every day, but not to do much at all, as I decided to focus more of my free time on other things.

Anyway, I'm just writing this blog to let you know I'm back, and I am sorry if I haven't posted on many,if any, of your blogs in a while.

That's all for now, I'll be making a new blog updating you of games, movies, music, and more very soon.

Take care, have a great week, and God bless! :D

Scribblenauts, Exit, Morrowind, + More

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:

ScribblenautsScribblenauts

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:

Exit (PSP)Exit

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 (PC) 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:

Desciption:

"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

9/11 Memorial Blog

As you may know, it has been 8 years since the terrorist attacks in the U.S. It was a horrible day, and many lives were lost.

I will, and I encourage all of you, to pray for the victims families, and to pray for the soldiers fighting for us in the war on terror. And also, lets pray that no more terrorist attacks happen.

R.I.P. 9/11 Victims, and fallen soldiers.

Level 38- DJ Boy + Updates

Hi everyone, it's been a while since my last blog.

First off, as my blog title says, I have leveled up! I am now level 38, which is called DJ Boy. :D

Now here are some other updates:

Not too long ago I finally went to see this movie:

Public Enemies

Movie: Public Enemies

Rated: R, for gangster violence and some language.

Starring: Johnny Depp and Christian Bale

This movie was pretty good. It was kind of slow at times, but for the most part it was an interesting movie about the 30's gangster John Dilinger. It is well acted, and very realistic. I recommend seeing it.

I also plan to see the movie G.I. Joe soon, though I hear stuff like the dialogue in the movie is very cheesy. If you saw it, then what do you think of it?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recently I reserved my copy of:

Scribblenauts Scribblenauts

And for reserving it, I'll be getting a real life replica of the main characters hat... Yeah, I'm not going to have a use for that, lol. I wish they would just give us a poster or something like that, but oh well, I'll give the hat to a friend I know that will like it.

By the way,in case you haven't noticed, I have been, so hyped for Scribblenauts,that I made a union for it! The union is becoming very popular, italready has over 150 members. If you are hyped for the game, I recommend you join. :)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, today my library was having a special book sale, where they were selling loads of excess books, along with some DVDs, CDs, and old computer games. I picked up 3 books for 50 cents apiece, they are all based on the Tom Clancy video games Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon.

And I picked up the movie Cellular on DVD, that's a pretty good thriller, and it was only $2!

The only games I picked up (I would have picked up more if I knew they were so cheap) were Tomb Raider 3, Gangsters, and EverQuest, all for PC, and all over 10 years old. The EverQuest game was a waste of money, because I found out even though people still play it, it is subscription based, and I hate that kind of thing. Luckily the games were only 50 cents apiece as well.

Since I was at the library, I also looked for a certain book I have been wanting to read for a long time; The Screwtape Letters. The Screwtape Letters is a book by C.S. Lewis, the author of the Chronicles Of Narnia books. I am looking forward to reading it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, that's all for now, I hope you all have a great weekend, take care and God bless! :D

Gamespot DVDs (thank you JodyR!)

Hey everyone! Today I was surprised to get something really cool in the mail:

Gamespot DVDs

Thanks to JodyR, I now have these Gamespot DVDs! To Go Pack: Volume 1 and To Go Pack E3 Special Edition.

The E3 one has 3 discs inside! And they cover over 160 games!

Visit http://www.gamespot.com/users/jodyr if you are interested in trying to get a Gamespot Retro DVD, before they are all gone.

I am glad that I have these DVDs, they are a great piece of Gamespot history. :)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got a couple more things I'd like to talk about aside from the DVDs.

As you may know from my last blog, I have Final Fantasy: VII on my PSP. I haven't gotten that far in it yet, but wow, just wow. This game is so fun! It's great to see the next part of the story after Crisis Core. Too bad I had miss out on this back when it came out, at least I can play it now thanks to PSN!

This one band I like, called Project 86, just recently released their 7th album, which they are, fora temporary time (at least I think it's temporary) letting people listen to for free on their Purevolume account. I have always liked this band, I think, if you are in to hard music, then you should try listening to this album, just go to: http://www.purevolume.com/project86.

I don't own the album yet, but I plan to get it as soon as possible. It's really good, I like it so much I changed my avatar here from the Scribblenauts one to an animated PR86 one. :lol:

Well, that's all for now. Have a great week, take care, and God Bless! :D

Twitter For Gamespot, Youtube Account, + More!

Hi everyone, I have been busy setting up stuff on other websites and I am happy to announce that I now have a Twitter page dedicated to updating you guys/girls with news about new games I get, played, rented, and also what movies I have seen and what my opinion is of them, and much more!

It is so easy to use Twitter. I'm going to update that whenever possible. I'll still post blogs here, you'll just get to see what's new sooner if you check my Twitter. The blogs here of course, will be more in depth, and I still hope you all read it from time to time. :)

My Twitter page is at: http://twitter.com/GSJesusFreak and it already has updates, which I will be talking about here, but you might want to still just stop by and see how I designed it really quick.

Also, I have a youtube page dedicated to game videos. The same game videos that appear there will appear here, so there isn't much point in visiting my youtube page, but just in case you want to, it is at: http://www.youtube.com/user/Triptych1990.

Speaking of videos, I have two new ones uploaded here and on youtube, they are for the PSP game "Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero?", if you view them here, please be sure to comment on them below the video player. :)

Now for a game update:

I finally have Finally Fantasy VII on my PSP! :D Ever since I bought, and then beat Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, I have wanted to play this game to continue the story. And thanks to PSN, I didn't have to purchase a used $70+ used copy over the internet. It was only just over $10! It's over a gigabyte though, so it's pretty big, lol. :lol:

So far I am really enjoying it, I just hope I can beat it since I'm not that good at Final Fantasy games lol.

I also want to buy Mercury Meltdown for my PSP via PSN, but I'm just about 30 cents under the price of it. I'll get it as soon as I can get more money into my PSN wallet.

One more new update, I am now level 37 on Gamespot, which is called Heiankyo Alien. I kinda miss being "Radical Ninja", but this name is pretty cool too. :)

So, that's it for now, I hope you all check out my Twitter if you get a chance. :)

Take care, have a great weekend and God bless! :D

Some Quick Updates

Hey everyone, it will still be a while before I post a big blog with a lot of gaming updates, but I do have some small updates. For one, in case you have not noticed, I am the creator and leader of a union called "The Scribblenauts Union", it is open to everyone that is interested in the upcoming Scribblenauts game for the Nintendo DS.

I got some new emblems a while back for watching E3:

Description: Virtually There: E3 2009 Sony Conference
For tuning into GameSpot's live broadcast of the E3 2009 Sony press conference on Tuesday, June 2.

Description: Virtually There: E3 2009 Nintendo Conference

Description: In the future, robots have come to dominate humankind.
These users tuned in to Day 1 of GameSpot's E3 2009 coverage. They loudly proclaimed, "Show me the future...of gaming!"

Description:The great rebellion of human vs robot has begun!
These users tuned in to Day 2 of GameSpot's E3 2009 coverage. They've seen glimpses of their gaming future, but they know the battle has only just begun.

Description: Human has triumphed against robot, but it seems we are the greatest monsters of all.
These users tuned in to Day 3 of GameSpot's E3 2009 coverage. They've seen their entire gaming future revealed before their eyes...but the long wait to play those games might drive them mad!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The only E3 emblem that I did not get was the Microsoft one, because I didn't realize it was on and missed it.

Another update is that I am level 36, which is called "Radical Ninja". I have actually been this level for a while, I just never blogged about it. And by tomorrow I will be level 37 lol. :lol:

I am going to be making videos for the game Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? soon, so look forward to that.

Well, before I end this blog I just have one question to ask you guys/girls, if I made a Twitter account for my gaming updates, do you think you would read the updates? Because as you have seen it usually takes me a while to finally give you guys/girls updates on my gaming, and if I had a Twitter for my game updates, you guys/girls could learn of anything new before I even posted the blog here. Please be honest, I don't want to make the Twitter if no one will read the updates, lol. :lol:

That's all for now, I hope you all have a great weekend, take care and God bless! :D

The Scribblenauts Union

Hey everyone, I know it's been a while since I blogged and you might like some updates, but this isn't going to be an update blog this time. My update blog will come soon though.

I am forming a union for the new Nintendo DS game called Scribblenauts (which will be released in September). I am looking for charter members for the union and I would like to fill all 8 slots. I already have a thread looking for charter members at: http://www.gamespot.com/pages/forums/show_msgs.php?topic_id=26918318&msg_id=313001256#313001256

You can go there to read up on what we will do in the union, then if you are interested in being a charter member, either post in this blog or in that thread. Please be quick, friends will get picked first, but not if they don't post before all of the 8 slots are requested!

EDIT: Charter member slots taken, the union will start soon. If you are interested in joining, leave a comment here on this blog and I will be sure to invite you. Also, you can just find the page yourself then join if you want.

2 Year Gamespot Anniversary + Lots Of Updates

Hey everyone, the last blog I posted was back in March, so it's been a while and I have a lot of updates.

First off, I just realized that on March 13 I had been a member here for 2 years! :D After all this time I still think Gamespot is an awesome online community, the best I have ever been a part of.

Ok, so I got a lot of updates, about games, music, and other stuff. Lets start with the games.

(Note: Click the names of the games to be taken to their Gamespot page if you wish to learn more about them, and click the names of the music albums to be taken to the bands Purevolume or Myspace page so you can listen to some of their songs.)

Games:

Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters (PSP)Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters (PSP)

The gameplay and graphics for this game are amazing! There's really only 1 thing I don't like about this game, and that is the length. It is an extremely short game, though the fun gameplay does make it worth replaying over and over again.

Syphon Filter: Combat Ops (PSP)Syphon Filter: Combat Ops (PSP)

This is a stand alone expansion to the Syphon Filter multiplayer for PSP. It allows you to customize missions in many various ways. I personally think this is the best online game I have played for PSP. But... it is hacker infested. You can have a lot of fun with the game, but you have to check out everyones stats before starting a game because there are an huge amount of hackers everywhere that have hacked profiles that say they have played over 1337 matches in every game mode, and won them all.

They do this so they can get to the top rank fast, so they have more customizing options in the editor. Also, a large number of these wimps come into the games invincible, and they do many different other hacks, such as making everyone kill themselves, and making it so items like flashbangs are lethal.

Sony should put out Anti Hacking software for the PSP, there's just too many of these hacker wimps around. If you are patient enough to dig through the games with hackers until you find a game with some honest, actually skilled people, this can be a very fun online gaming experience.

Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero? (PSP)Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero?

This is aside-scrolling action game based on the RPG game series Disgaea. It is a lot of fun, and very funny at times. Though quite honestly, this is one of the hardest side-scrolling action platformer games I have ever played. With this game came a free soundtrack, which I haven't tried listening to yet.

Music:

Remedy Drive: Daylight Is ComingRemedy Drive: Daylight Is Coming

This is a piano driven, light rock band. Their music is amazing,and their lyrics are great. I recommend you try listening to their song "Daylight".

Current favorite songs: "Daylight", "Hope", and "Get To Know You".

Red: Innocence & InstinctRed: Innocence & Instinct (Deluxe Edition)

This is a hard rock band.You may have heard of these guys, their last album, which was called End Of Silence, was very popular, and their video for their song "Already Over" was played on MTV. While I really enjoyed their last album, this album is so much better in my opinion.

Current favorite songs: "Fight Inside", "Mystery Of You",and "Start Again".

House Of Heroes: The End Is Not The EndHouse Of Heroes: The End Is Not The End

This is a rock band. This album is one of the best albums I have heard from any band in a long time. I reccomend you try listening to their song "Code Name: Raven". Also look up their video for their song "In The Valley Of The Dying Sun" on youtube, it's one of the best music videos ever, in my opinion.

Current favorite songs: "In The Valley Of The Dying Sun", "Code Name: Raven", and "Journey Into Space (Part One)".

Seventh Day Slumber: Take EverythingSeventh Day Slumber: Take Everything

This is a worship album from the Christian hard rock band Seventh Day Slumber. I recommend it if you are a Christian and like a bit of a rock edge to your worship music.

Falling Up: FangsFalling Up: Fangs

This album from the band Falling Upis great, though I haven't gotten a chance to listen to the whole thing yet. The lyrics of each song actually tie in together to tell a sci-fi fantasy story.

Current favorite songs (based on what I have heard from the album so far): "Streams Of Woe At Acheron", "Golden Arrows", and "Goddess Of The Dayspring Am I".

Other Updates:

I got an emblem for voting in the best of 2008 Readers' Choice Awards:

Description:

This user was caught spray painting GameSpot's wall! Or, maybe he/she voted in GameSpot's 13th-annual Readers' Choice Awards known as Best of 2008.
