Grand Theft Auto IV PC
Yep, this game is a little messed up. I can play Fallout 3 just fine on mah rig, ahem, I mean on my PC while it still looks very respectable. I've heard that Rockstar is working on 'something' to help people get decent frame rates and still enjoy the game.
That would be rad, because I wouldn't mind some more time in GTA IV
Fighting Games + Me = Whaaaaaa???
Super Street Fighter II HD Remix is pretty awesome. I took the plunge and by plunge I mean I paid cash, er I mean MS points for this game (Hell, I already had the points so why not?). Now, I've never really been someone who played fighting games. The last time I was in an arcade I don't even remember what I played but all I did was button mash. It's fascinating to me hearing about development and technical aspects of fighting games that I haven't been aware of, i.e. hit boxes, damage values, priority rating, frame counting.
Now, I'd like to get further into this. I may get MK vs. DC, not to mention Street Fighter IV coming out next year, I'm seeing a Hori stick in my future. Perhaps the Hori Real Arcade Pro. EX. I dunno, I'm finding I do have fun playing a good fighting game, learning the moves for different characters. I just think it would be easier with a good home arcade stick.
Also, in case you didn't know about it already, go www.ocremix.orgfor the official SSFIIHDR soundtrack. I'm currently seeding.
I need to play some multiplayer of SSFIIHDR. Gerstmann, You're on my friends list, I'm looking in your direction!
Riddick: Dark Athena looks sick. Thank you, Tigon Studios, Starbreeze and Vin Diesel. I never did finish Escape From Butcher Bay back in the day (rhyme!) so I look forward to playing this. Also, points.
Games To Play
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
I hear it's awesome I just haven't seen fit to start playing it (yet).
Left 4 Dead
I haven't played any multiplayer yet and only played through one 'movie' so far. A co-worker of mine is constantly bugging me with 'Wanna kill some zombies tonight?' when he sees me at work.
I don't know when I'll 'feel' like playing this. Someday. Soon.
Fallout 3 PC
With Fallout 3 X360 done, naturally, I need to finish bugging Pappy (man that kid's a dork) in Big Town with speech challanges to reach level 20 with good karma and 8, 14 and 20 with bad karma. This equals 90 points...Then I can do the same thing for the PC version for more points not to mention all the points to gain as I play the PC version again. I'm reminded that I am basically paying for more points. Nah, I'm enjoying it too, honest. I don't hate myself that much. I just like Fallout 3 is all.
Ok, this game continues to look just beautiful. I'm really liking the modular (RIS? RAS?) Armalites with what looks like EoTech 551 tactical holo sights. Hellghast? Check! Looking awesome? Check. As powerful as the PS3 is, it still looks like it's pushing the system's hardware.
I was worried they wouldn't be using the c|assic proton-packs at all in this game. But I'm glad to see the guys using these very positron colliders. I'm pleasantly surprised to see Bill Murray joining in on the voice work. Maybe we can finally expect some 1/4 scale Premium Format Figures from Sideshow Collectibles of all four of the actor's likenesses INCLUDING Bill Murray's. 'Cuz he never licenses his likeness for anything, from what I've heard. God, that would be awesome. Mixed media 1/4 scale statues of the GHOSTBUSTERS! Ok, my nerd is showing... Moving on...
New Star Wars: The Force Unleashed DLC
Yeah, I bought that.
Last but not least I used Soundforge 8.0 to remove all the clicks from the waveforms of the Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Premium Edition. I burned my own disc without clicks. Now I can finally enjoy this great score! It's weird, all the clicks/errors looked the same and they were all in the same spots in each track. Lame!
If you read that wall of text, congratulations!
Goddamnit, GameSpot. I still can't make bolt or italic text in my blog. Whatevs.
