Just did a co-op mission in Rainbow Six Vegas 2 with my nephew Andrew last night. I bought the game a few months ago and haven't even played any single player missions yet! He wanted to do a co-op and I told him I'm a bit rusty having not played in a while but I'll give it a go.
Well it took me quite a while to get a handle in the controls. My reaction time is patheticly slow. Not surprising. I'll take some time to get up to speed. We took our team through one mission and he got killed more than I did. Probably because he took the lead most of the time. I mananged to get a few kills, get killed and generally have a blast with it. What a great game.
It was a lot of run too. I had forgotten how much fun gaming can be. I then watched him play through a few levels of Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare. Wow what a game that is! Graphics are outstanding, gaming is fast paced and frantic. I've got to give that a try. Probably take me a month to get through it though. It looks hard. Andrew said he went though about half of it and some of the missions are really tough... and he's a real U.S. Marine!
So I'm starting to jones for some gaming again. It's been a while but I think with a young person's enthusiasim for gaming around here (He and his wife Jessica are staying with us for a time) it was bound to happen... and that's a good thing!
So now what new games do I get? Oh wait, I have plenty I've never finished. Scratch that. By the time I'm ready for something new the current $60 games will be in the bargin bin! Great for a cheapskate like me!
On, I also got a new cell phone. One of those touch type ones. A Samsung Instinct. It's kind of neat to mess with so that takes some of my time. I can see how people get attached to them. I don't think I will though, but hey, never say never. I can even text now! Email, the web, facebookin', flickr all excellent time wasters... and there all there at your finger tips!
Think I'll go fire up the Xbox360...
