Bumble Bee Tuna!!!

Haven't been around much lately so I thought I would pop in and say Hi.

Been playing SWTOR alot on The Harbinger server. If anyone is also on The Harbinger and happen to see on playing one of my toons(my main is Justyna and my Alt's are Justync and Yournamehere.) and want to group up for something just let me know. I'm usually doing some Daily's or Weekly's.

Happy Holiday's everyone.

What I've been doing lately.

I haven't posted a blog lately, so I thought I'd give everyone a little update about what I've been doing.

Well, I got myself a new notebook. Its an Asus G73Sw, I got a couple accessories for it too, a keyboard and mouse.My Asus G73Sw

My ROG Keyboard and Mouse

I got The Wicther Enhanced Edition and The Wicther 2 Assassins of Kings for it because I've been wanting to play them but my old PC wouldn't run them, but my new one can and then some.

Besides the PC games I really haven't got any new games for my Xbox 360 or PS3, but in the new few months alot of game that I have pre-ordered come out. A few are Uncharted 3, Assassins Creed: Revelations, The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrm, Deus Ex Human Revolution, Gears of War 3, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, Dark Souls, Batman Arkham City, and a few more. I also pre-ordered Star Wars: The Old Republic for PC, its my first MMO, but I love the Knights of the Old Republic games and I thought I'd give it a try.

GameStop POWERUP Rewards

I got a phone call today from the GameStop that I go to and they said that I was chosen to participate in their new rewards program called POWERUP Rewards. It's their new system that for every dollar you spend at GameStop you get a certain amount of points which you can use to get items from them. I really don't know a lot about it right now because the guy I talked to said that only their store's top 15 customers where chosen to participate because its in beta I think, like I said I really don't know enough about it to be sure. But from what I do know it sounds pretty cool. When I find out more info about I'll post it.

So Many Games, So Little Time!!!

The past couple of weeks has been a rollercoster of emotions for me. First there was the release of Final Fantasy 13:D and I play it every spare minute I have. Then a week later two more releases came out on the same day, God of War 3:twisted: and Dragon Age: Origins- Awakening:D and that puts me in a little bit of a pickle, I can't decide which game to play so I've just been jumping from one game to the other and I'm getting confused.:? So I decided to finish FFXIII first, DA:O-A second, and save God of War 3 for the last, because I want to saver it. But I shouldn't be complaining that I have these games while some people may have one, two, or they may have none at all.:| Well until next time, see ya around.

Socom 4!!!

Finally, a new SOCOM for the PS3 that has a single-player campaign. I've been waiting for this day for so long, that when I found out I thought I was going to crap my pants. I've been reading some of the forums and some people are disappointed that it wasn't Killzone 3 or Resistance 3 and they have their right to express it like I have mine, and I say to hell with those games. Some won't agree with what I say, some may and thats fine I'm not telling people what should or shouldn't be done or that their opinion about it is right or wrong. I'm just saying I'm happy that they are making a new SOCOM and not another FPS.

It Finally Happened.....RROD!!!

The day before yesterday I was playing COD:MW2 at my cousin's house. I took my 360 and TV so we could both play online at the same time and everything was going great until the game froze on me. At the time I thought the game just froze up, my xbox does that, correct that, did that alot. So, I did as I always done and turned it off and restarted it....... and then it happened I saw red and I was scared.:o I checked the power plugs and tried it rings:cry:........ I'll admit I almost cried, if I was by myself I probably would have.:? But, I wasn't so I did want most men would do, I played it off as a minor inconvenience, saying that I would buy a new one and go on. But inside my mind I was screaming"What am I going to do?":shock:

I have a lot of DLC for different games that I've gotten over the last couple of years by going of to a friends house and bumming an internet connection, I have a 120gig HHD and I have about 12gigs left and thats including game installs too. Now I'm wondering to myself, "What about my saved data and DLC on the HHD, I won't be able to use it on another 360 without verifying through LIVE?" some may be asking, "What about your profile?" I have my Profile on a memory card so I can take it to friend's house and use it there so thats not a problem.

Right now I don't know what I'm going to do, most likely I'll send it in to be fixed but my warranty went out a few months ago so its going to cost me money and time, which is going to suck because Mass Effect 2 is being released as I type this and I really want to play it but I can't.:cry:

No Kill/Alerts Playthroughs On MGS 4.

Today I thought I would try and go through Metal Gear Solid 4 with no kills, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would have been(Liquid Easy),but the no alerts part that is a little bit more complicated. I tried for the no kills playthrough first and I did it, got the bandana and pigeon emblem which was cool. However, the no alert playthrough. That part is being more difficult than I thought it would be. Not being seen isn't really the problem, its when I do get spotted its at the end of an act right before the save point so I have to start all over again from the last save. I'm taking more time with the no alert playthrough, the no kills play took me just over 5 hours. It may take a some time but I'll get it eventually.

PS2/Xbox Games Remade In HD?

I purchased the God of War Collection a few days ago and I started playing God of War 1 today and I'm almost finished with it. I played it before on my Playstation 2 but I never did complete it because it was taken along with my other games for my Playstation 2 and original Xbox, I was robbed:cry:, but thats a different story.

Anyways, after playing it a little bit(6-7 hours), I got to thinking. Should more PS2 or Xbox games be re-released in HD? In my opinion, yes and no. There aremany older games that are great and would look better in higher resolution, but would they do it is the question.

Here is a list of a few games I wouldn't mind being remade.

  • SOCOM (Series)
  • Metel Gear Solid(Series)
  • GTA: VC/SA
  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 1&2

Thats all I can think of at the moment. I'll think of more and post them later.

What game(s) would you want remade?
