New co-op opportunities, COD MOD 2's downfall and MOH beta

Red Dead Redemption and Battlefield Bad Company 2 are 2 excellent games that I enjoy to play on a regular basis. But the addition of "co-op against AI" modes , in my opinion, isn't a bad idea. In Outlaws to the End -- RDR's co-op mode -- there's 6 missions you can play in that, with up to 3 friends, ranging from raiding a gold mine to rescuing a damsel in distress. All in all, its very fun and adds more hours to your playtime for Red Dead Redemption. Plus its free! Its practically a steal.

Battlefield Bad Company 2's Onsluaght is similar to Outlaws to the End in that you can play with 3 other friends (or you can play by yourself if you want). However, you can adjust the difficultyfor the AI (easy, medium, hard and hardcore). Its very, very fun and can do 2 things for ya: 1. If your not a team player, it'll teach you to be a team player because you truly have to work together to win and 2. If your struggling in competitive online play, you go up against waves of AI enemies which is easier than taking on real people. Only drawback is that to get it, you have to pay 800 Microsoft Points, which sucks =(. But its worth it.

Also I wanted to comment on COD MOD 2's multiplayer. While its still fairly enjoyable, I've recently been losing interest and honestly the experience seems to be in a bit of a downfall. Why? Well for some reason in nearly every match I play in hardcore, the matches are full of campers, which annoys the s**t out of me. I can't honestly understand how it can fun to just sit in a corner the entire match and wait for someone to run past you just so you can kill them. It degrades the multiplayer and makes it no fun to play. Also, I've been playing with alot of modded players recently, which doesn't make the game fun at all. While I prefer ground war over hardcore, none of my friends ever want to play it, and I really hate to play by myself. Plus the ACR is too "perfect" a gun: unlike in BC2, where every gun has its pros and cons, the ACr is practically perfect. And the funny thing is, I've never used that gun. All in all, I hope Infinity Ward or Activision does something about this growing problem before the multiplayer becomes practically unenjoyable to play. Bad Company 2 is more my cup of tea lol

Also has anyone tried out the Medal of Honor beta multiplayer? I've watched the trailers and gameplay videos, and it looks badass, but I don't feel like pre-ordering until I know the beta is good or bad. If anyone has tried it, please let me know.

So far, so good for 2010 in gaming.

From what I can see, we're only in March, and 2010 is looking to be a great year for gaming already. But that's my opinion. And I have 7 reasons why 2010 is gonna be a great year in gaming.

Note: Some games in this list haven't been released yet.

1. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (multiplayer=epic)

2. Mass Effect 2 (awesome)

3. Splinter Cell Conviction (I've waited 3 years for this game)

4. God Of War 3 (brutal, but awesome)

5. Heavy Rain (a surprise hit!)

6. Halo: Reach (whenever it comes out this year...)

7. Rock Band 3

Yep, that's that. Any game that was important that was left out? Put it in the comment box!

New reviews, new favorites, new instruments, and how life has been

As some of you have probably already seen, I have 3 reviews I've posted in the last month or so. The 3 games are Halo 3 ODST, Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and left 4 Dead 2. All 3 of those games are super awesome and are gmes I love to play alot. Add me on XBL so we can play if you have any of those. I also got myself a brand new Fender Stratocaster guitar that looks chill and is awesome.

Even though I've found alot of s**t to do, this year has been my busiest as far as school is concerned. I'm only in my junior year, and jesus christ has it been crazy. AP American History and AP English 3 and Spanish2 are the worst. Basically here's a little rundown of my current schedule.

1st block: Algebra 2. Even though math is definitely not my best subject, its not that bad. I could be acing that class, but because I'm a lazy boy and have better things to do, I prefer not to do some of the assignments. The teacher is alright, though can get boring at times and cause me to fall asleep. I have a good amount of friends in that class, mostly seniors. But all in all, not a bad class.

2nd block (A): On "A" days, I have AP American history. Crazy hard, with full scale Cornell notes and research papers. Its a hard f*****g class, no doubt. The tests are ungodly difficult and pretty much impossible to 100% unless you practically know EVERYTHING from the chapter. Other than that, the teacher makes the class interesting and I have alot of my friends in there, so I guess its an even trade-off.

2nd block (B): On "B" days, I have AP English 3. This is definitely my hardest class, as we have countless Ap essays, reports on novels we read (most of which I do horrible on becuz I don't read the book assigned), oral exams, and ungodly difficult AP exams. The teacher is alright, can be an a**hole when he wants to be. Same people from 2nd block (A) though, so if it wasn't for that, I'd drop the damn class altogether.

3rd block: Executive Internship. This class can be summed up in 3 words: EASIEST CLASS EVER. All it is is just I have to be an aide, helper or errand boy for my guidance department, which is easy considering all I do is answer phones, make copies and run notes down to teachers. The main person behind this class assigns us crap which if you don't do you can still ace the "class". The exam is pie. Alot of people I know in here so a good deal overall.

4th block. Spanish 2. Ugh. Learning Spanish is more of a pain than I thought it would be. I can understand Spanish but I can;t speak it if my life depended on it, probably becuz I sleep in that class alot. Other than that, its easy to pass, but becuz - once again - I'm a lazy boy and have better things to do, I usually don't do my assignments or I do them and turn them in later. Good amount of people I know in there, so I guess that's good. lol

If you read all that, then kudos to you, fellow gamer. lol

Well, hello everyone. What's up?

Ok, um, I've sort of forgotten about this page and I've been busy, So I decided to update this damn thing. Wat's up guys and gals? U guys been doing good. My first week of my junior year went pretty good. Got golf starting next week. I have xbox live gold as some of you have been seeing already. My gamertag is SirLancealot325. Hit me up so we can play together!

Top 10 best heavy metal albums

The title says it all; a list of the best heavy metal albums. The 10 best, in my opinion. My opinion, not yours. If you wish to voice your opinion, write a comment congratulating me; shun the list or even make your own. Read this at your own risk....

#10Image:Ace of Spades.jpg

Ace Of Spades by Motorhead

Release Year: 1980

Memorable track(s): Ace Of Spades

#9Image:Megadeth-RustInPeace.jpg

Rust in Peace by Megadeth

Release year: 1990

Memorable track(s): Hanger 18, Holy Wars.... The Punishment Due

#8Image:Machine Head album cover.jpg

Machine Head by Deep Purple

Release year: 1972

Memorable track(s): Smoke On The Water, Highway Star

#7Image:Judas Priest SforV.jpg

Screaming For Vengeance by Judas Priest

Release year: 1982

Memorable track(s): You've Got Another Thing Comin', Electric Eye

#6Image:AnthraxAmongTheLiving.jpg

Among the Living by Anthrax

Release Year: 1987

Memorable track(s): Caught In A Mosh, Indians, Among the Living, Imitation Of Life

#5Image:Ridethelightning.jpg

Ride the Lightning by Metallica

Release Year: 1984

Memorable track(s): Well, everything, honestly.

Rounding out the top 5 is one of Metallica's best efforts, better than any of there other crap they've released after "The Black Album" (though "Fuel is good). Anyways, its an awesome album that shows the rise of thrash metal, and the rise of one of the best thrash metal bands ever. If you like thrash metal, there's a good chance you'll like this one.

#4Image:Reign in blood.jpg

Reign In Blood by Slayer

Release year: 1986

Memorable track(s): Angel Of Death, Raining Blood

Oh boy, I smell some controversy with this one. Well, I don't give a damn....

Reign In Blood is Slayer's best album by a mile, and is one of the most fastest and best thrash metal albums ever. Who doesn't love the opening scream, guitar solo and the double bass drum part right after the guitar solos on the opening track, "Angel Of Death"? You've just played "Raining Blood" on Guitar Hero 3; the Mosh 1 section is a b***h. But still, even though "Reign In Blood" clocks in at about 30 minutes (which is relatively short), you'll want to listen to it again and again afterwards. If you don't like this album, then you don't deserve to say you like thrash metal.

#3Image:Black Sabbath - Paranoid.jpg

Paranoid by Black Sabbath

Release year: 1971

Memorable track(s): Iron Man, Paranoid, War Pigs

This and "Machine Head" (see #8) are one of the first heavy metal albums ever to be released. And, damn, are they fabulous, as is this one. Who doesn't love the main riff to "Iron Man", the 7-minute long protest song "War Pigs", and the simply-designed but equally good "Paranoid"? By far one of the best heavy metal albums, no one will be able to replace this album. Be jealous, other bands.

#2Image:Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast.jpg

The Number Of The Beast by Iron Maiden

Release year: 1982

Memorable track(s): The Number Of The Beast, Run To the Hills, Hallowed Be Thy Name

I know you Maiden fans were wondering "where was a Maiden album going to be?" Well, here you go. This album is by far their best album, and is mighty close to the top spot, at #2. For those of you who've never heard of this album, you'd be wondering if the band -- or, me -- was Satanic. But, I'm not and they're not either. Satanic can be answered by listening to any Slayer album besides Reign In Blood. The intro to the title track is absolutely fantastic, and is really fun to play on real guitar and on GH3. I could say this album is a God-given gift.... but then again, maybe not.... lol

#1Image:Metallica - Master of Puppets.jpg

Master Of Puppets by Metallica

Release year: 1986

Memorable track(s): Um, everything

I really don't know what to say about this album. Its just that good. Better than any metal album released ever (and forever) Master Of Puppets is where everything comes together. The solo in the title track is f*****g insane, and I can't imagine how difficult that could be to play on GH4. But anyways, Battery and Damage Inc. are some of the best thrash songs around, and beat any attempt for any new band to surpass this masterpiece. So, quite simply, Master Of Puppets truly is the Master of Metal and, in my opinion, the best metal album ever made, bar none.

Glitchspot

Okay, something glitchful is going on. A couple of days ago, I went from level 15 straight to level 17 in one night. Then last night, I went from 17 down to level one. WTF?!:evil:Now, I went from 1 back up to level 19, and I'm about halfway through. I huess its preapring me for the metal slime part, and everyone who has surpassed the level has said that it takes a while to get past the level. So that's whats going on. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to glitchspot.

COD 4 and SMG

Such awesomeness, Super Mario Galaxy and Call Of Duty 4 are. Their both awesome! I purchased both of them on Nov. 12th, and I've played the crap out of both of them. COD 4 I just posted a review on (please read) and Super Mario Galaxy will be getting a review from me tomorrow. Call of Duty 4 is the best COD game to date. Outsatnding gameplay and campaign. As for Super Mario Galaxy, its probably one of the greatest Mario games I've ever been able to play. Easily beating out SM64 and SMS, Super Mario Galaxy is the agem to beat on the Wii. So if you're looking for a game for your Wii or 360 (or PS3),get SMG and COD 4, for you won't be dissapointed.

Oh damn...

Finally, I get a break today. Sorry guys, I've been absent for about 2 weeks. Not posting or anything. But, like I mentioned, life is becoming very busy. Soccer practice, school, homework and now, track conditioning. But today, I ran a mile in 7:43! I was 2nd among my group but 1st among the males. Also, I've already posted 2 music videos which I didn't let any of you know about, with a 3rd one available today

1st one here

2nd video here

3rd video here

If anyone wants a music video made but can't make one, let me know, and if I have the time, I'll make it. Just let me know the game and at least the song. Thanks, and have a nice day.

My 1st nine weeks as a freshman.

After an exhausting first nine weeks, it is over. Now I begin anew again, with only one new class: PE. That sucks, because I had health and now I've lost about 75% of my friends from health class :cry: But I'll make new ones. Other than that, every other class stays the same until christmas break, and I can't wait until after christmas break....
