It has been a long while since I last ranted. What was suppose to be a follow up to Brothers in Arms did not go as planned. Pretty much the whole time that I was supposed to play Brothers in Arms, I played Halo 2 instead. Here comes the good news and the bad news.
I played Halo 2 for about the whole two weeks time frame that I was supposed to dedicate to Brothers in Arms. The good news was I finally got over this so call Halo 2 hype, meaning I am sort of sick of Halo 2 now. I get killed so easily when I played online that it just made me so sick of it. I must have really bad luck or I just plain and simply suck at Halo 2. I knocked the guy (3) times and he was standing only to turn around somehow and killed me with (1) hit. Can you believe that? OMFG! I think that was the part where I drew the line of quiting Halo 2. I had since played Halo 2 in about 3 months now.
The other little thing adding to me quiting Halo 2 is just minor gripe. For example, people must be really skilled or have a lot of time on their hand. I noticed that if you can snipe real good in Halo 2, it pretty much, not all mind you, but pretty much game over for other people. If one can snipe real good in Halo 2, they can time their shot so well that you either die from their first shot on the head, or you will die from their second shot. There were so many times when I tried to out maneuver the sniper that I should had just threw the controller into my tv because there isn't a way to out maneuver a good sniper.
My third complaint is with the so called "energy sword" Yes it is cool and very satisfying to use, but man is it not balanced sometimes. I know the sword is suppose to be a one hit kill, and I know that sometimes it might take two hits to kill. But there are times when I keep on whacking people with the sword it they don't die. Am I nuts? I know by now that some people say that can't happened, but it did for me.
So after those little encounter, I am so fed up with Halo 2 that I decided not to play it for a long while if not forever. I guess perhaps I don't play enough to be good enough like some of the pros out there. But then I again who really have all those time to dedicate themselves to one thing.
As for Brothers in Arms, I barely had enough time to do anything with it. I was only able to go online with it and tried it out with other people. I found that the online mode did not have as much people playing as would had hoped. The rooms were somewhat limited and had low ping. Although the once the game started the players were very nice for a change. A lot of the Halo 2 players were very rude especially the good ones. I made some friends in Brothers in Arms and found out that they play Ghost Recon 2 as well.
Ghost Recon 2 is what I currently play online for XBox. Although I have not been playing Ghost Recon 2 *sorry Eric* I have been playing an older game on PS2 call Champion of Norrath. I am very drawn to this game lately for some odd reasons. I am a level 20 Barbarian Woman *lol* I think I am almost done...? So if anyone read this, email me so we can play online. I am so hype about this game that I got the second part to this: Return to Arms. So I guess other game will have to wait or whenever I get sick of it, but it looks like I won't be for a long while.
With what I just said above, I actually got a lot of new games: Ace Combat 5, Batman Begins, Champions Return to Arms, Cold Winter, Destroy All Humans!, Dynasty Warriors 4: Empires, Medal of Honor: European Assault, Metal slug 4 & 5, Onimusha: Blade Warriors, and Ys: The Art of Napishtim. I will not be playing some of these games for a while, but at least they are free, well almost. :wink:
Well, that is all the time I have for now. Got to get back to work. Until next time. Adios!
