Earth Hour 2011

earth hour

My family and I turned off all of our lights for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30 pm. We played cards by candle light so we had fun. I love this event because it is "a huge symbol of global solidarity" (David Cameron), and it also helps preserve our Earth's resources; even if it is at a small scale!

Kickin back with new maps

There's nothing like spending the holidays with the family and playing some games by the fireplace. Bad Company 2 recently came out with an expansion; Battlefield Vietnam. It gets it's own section on the menu screen when you start the game and greets you with Creedence Clearwater Revival and other 60's music. This DLC is a great depiction of the Vietnam because it delves into all the great thickets of vines and brush that Vietnam's jungles have to offer. You won't be able to see unless they are "spotted" so you'll have to rely on muzzle flash with is a very realistic aspect of the game.

I'm very pleased with this game and recommend you guys check it out!

Anticipation - Fallout: New Vegas

new vegas

I always wanted to play Fallout 3, and figured that since New Vegas is coming out this Sunday I would preorder this hype magnet. I love the setting choice. A post apocalyptic Las Vegas? Brilliant! From what I've read the casinos and bright lights aren't the only places in the game you can roam. They've focused on making sure the rest of the wastelands are just as detailed and exciting as the city.

The perks look interesting, however I may go with the conservative Long Haul perk. It gives you extra room to carry more items, which will come in handy when I want to get some extra cash by selling items I pick up.

Preorder bonuses depend on which retailer you preorder the game from. The bonuses don't seem to significant because I'm sure you'll be able to find better armor/weapons early on in the game. However they do add to the excitement and hype of the game. I may go with the Walmart preorder bonus "The Caravan Pack", which comes with Lightweight Leather Armor, Sturdy Caravan Shotgun, 4 Repair Kits, and a pair of Binoculars.

Overall, I'm excited for this game. I'm going to get overnight delivery so I can start it from Day One of release. See you all in Sin City!!

R.I.P Robbie Hairsine

Cross-In remembrance of one of my best friends

R.I.P Robbie Hairsine. We'll never forget you. When we hung out, we had some of the funniest times. He was a true friend of mine and a real genuine, caring person. You're in a better place now. I pray for Robbie's family to get through this time of grief.

Robbie passed yesterday of Leukemia.

Verizon FIOS/ MW2

It's offical. I finally have verizon fios internet! There is absolutely no lag, even when others are using the internet. I thought to myself, "I'm not lagging anymore! Maybe I should go play mw2 again!" Yeah bad mistake. Yet another glitch. The care package glitch. WTF Infinity Ward. Patch this ****. Can I just play 1 game where people don't use a glitch to win. Seriously there was like 4 chopper gunners from the care package glitch, and in the lobby after the game they admitted they used the glitch. What is the point of playing a game just to cheat to win. Where is the fun in that. How can one game be so broken? This was the most anticipated game of 2009. Admit it, you either bought it day one, or you were atleast interested in it. Who could have thought the sequel of one of the greatest multiplayer games of all time could be so buggy, and by INFINITY WARD no less. Sorry, I just had to vent this one out...O god, I just remembered how pissed I got at the javelin glitch...Ok I won't get into that XD

Mass Effect 2

Do you have any idea as to how great this game is going to be? Of course you do. So do yourself a favor and get this game on tuesday. I'm so hyped for this game, I believe I've seen each trailer atleast 3 times. I've got it preordered.

...Do you?

Time to Upgrade

I have verizon dsl, and everyone in my family uses the computer constantly, so I'm always lagging. Time to upgrade speed, or get verizon fios.

Just bought Mass Effect ($15)

I know I'm really late but, better now than never I guess. I've heard great things about this game and I wanted to get it with some time to beat it before Mass Effect 2, in case I really want to get the sequel. I also preordered Left 4 Dead 2, which will be a great game, considering all of the new things Valve has brought to the table. The weather changes, the new Special Infected, the special zombies that are specific to each map. All 5 maps being versus compatiable right off the bat, and not to mention the new game modes. I've played the demo, and the gore has been amped up with help from melee weapons. Can't wait to use that chainsaw. mmmmmhmmmm
