HOLY!! Has it really been over a month since I've been on here???! Wow time flys. I have been doing a lot of reading. If any of you read fantasy books then I suggest "Steerswoman" by Kirstein and "Magician" by Fiest.
I will catch up on everyones posts and my unions ASAP!!
Okay I finally finished "The Orange Box", since there are four games that I beat on there, I won't do my usual pros and cons. Instead I will just give a paragraph for each, since I really don't have many cons anyway.
Half Life 2
For me this game started off slow and I wasn't too thrilled about how the vehicles handled on the PS3, but the more I played the more I fell in love with this shooter!! This game had me so excited and scared at the same time that I would be bouncing on the couch, screaming at whatever was killing me. lol I think every game should use the Havoc psychics, its fun. I liked the variety of enemies, the zombies were my favorite of course and I hate those barnacles UGH!! Can't enjoy a shooter without my trusty shotgun, but the crossbow and combine weapon were great alternates for damage. Alex is sooooo in love with me..uh I mean Dr. Freeman lol Its so obvious and it pulls me into the game. The story behind this game is very cool, leave it up to humans to rip a hole in space and let invaders in *shrugs Ooops. And the facial expressions were the best I have seen in a while, it really looked like Alex was flirting with me or in serious pain. One last thing....Ravenholm is one scary place...halfway through the level I took the game out and didn't play it again for a month lol
Half Life 2: Episode 1
Wow these guys know how to make an expansion! As a stand alone game it was awesome. I , of course, love the beefed up gravity gun. Seeing what happens to you if the Combine takes you prisoner, makes you want to blow up the Citadel as fast as possible and put those poor people out of their misery! The ending was very cool and satisfying :)
Half Life 2: Episode 2
Again an expansion that other developers should take notes from! There were so many awesome tense battles, and a few frustrating ones :) But after dieing a few times and trying different approaches, I could always figure out a way to come out victorious! If you haven't played these games, the ending battle in this game is worth many many...dollars lol No seriously it was a blast....even though I was screaming and on the edge of my seat :) Its a good thing my boyfriend loves me
*Spoilers* There isn't much I wanna say about this game that isn't a spoiler so...you were warned. The portal gun and its portals are very inventive. I hope to see this used in more shooters and RPGs. This game is like my worst nightmare. Wakeup in a sterile science experiment building, be monitored constantly by an intelligent (debatable) AI, go through dangerous and yet boring tests. And after all that is said and done.....there is no cake!!! You never lie to a woman about cake!! NEVER lol okay also it really creeps me out when AI takes over, you notice how the humans always become the "dangerous factor" that its best to terminate. Its also creepy that there are more people "still alive", trapped in there for Her to mess with, those poor bastards. I have just downloaded the ending song, SOOOO CUTE, even with the macabre comments.
