Okay so as I said in my previous blog, I haven't been nor will I be spending a tremendous amount of time on GS. Not for now anyway, maybe in the future I'll become a frequent poster again. My reviews are very few and far between. But what I am adamant about doing regularly is updating my blog. So here's what going on for now.
So I got The Conduit. I'm not a huge fan of shooters but after all of the praise IGN spewed, it had my attention. So June 24th (Gamestop didn't have it in on launch day) I got a Special Edition copy of the game. It came with a special box art, a concept art booklet, and within that booklet two codes for bonus unlockables in the game. Interestingly enough, I didn't preorder it and on a side note, this is the second time I've received a special or collectors copy without doing so, the first being Majora's Mask. I like collectors edition stuff. The cover art always looks so much better. Why can't all games have really good covers? At any rate, The Conduit is a good game. Fast-paced, pretty challenging, interesting story, and great graphics. Oh, and let's not forget the achievements, cheats, and unlockable art galleries. I have yet to try the multiplayer but I will in time. Overall, I enjoyed this game. It's pretty short but it has good replay value because of the achievements and cheats. I reccommend it to all you Wii owners out there.
So I'm seventeen years of age now, and as such I am legally old enough to buy M rated titles according to the ESRB. Well, today I finally got around to taking my drivers permit test. I passed, so I'll be getting my official permit soon. Then I'll have some nice ID to buy any M rated game I please without anyone's consent. I feel empowered.
Metroid Prime Trilogy:
I honestly was never a fan of the Metroid Prime series. I didn't see what the hype was all about. In my opinion they don't control very well. But my confidence in the Wii's potential as a shooter-friendly system is great. I wanted to buy Metroid Prime 3, and I know enough of the story form the first two to get by, but for whatever reason, I held out. That said, I'll be purchasing Metroid Prime Trilogy in August. All three games on one disc, with Wii controls. Look at this!
Look at that box art! That is the sickest box art I have ever seen! I want to name one of my children after this box art! Damn! Collector's Edition? More like Coolector's Edition. And I'm a coolector. Do want! Comes with an art book too. Sweetness!
What I'm Playing:
Yeah, so obviously I've been playing The Conduit. I'm happy with that.
I've also been playing Disgaea DS again. I never finished Etna mode because having Laharl kill everything in sight was my main strategy throughout the main story. So I've been working at that bit by bit. Etna still sucks in my game though.
I tried my hand at both MapleStory and Perfect World. I've decided that there is no substitute for World of Warcraft. I really want to buy WoW and the expansions but the online fee is steep. Maybe I'll just (censored)(censored)(censored)(censored)(censored) and just play for free. :P
Yeah, so I just realized that I forgot to mention that I passed 10,000 GamerScore for my XBL account a few weeks ago so I made this edit to my blog. I topped the landmark number while playing Sid Meyer's Civilization Revolution. Awesome!
