Zombies: The Difference Between Sprinters And Walkers.

by on
Yesterday I watched Word War Z. I enjoyed it, but there was something I noticed when it comes down to the two types of zombies we always see. There's the "Walkers". They are your classic zombie. Slow, easy to outrun, but dangerous in hordes. Then there's the "Sprinters". Very popular in Hollywood for a while now. Intense, hard to outrun, just damn near-impossible to deal with. But there's a fundamental difference between living in a world where one of these two exist. I know, it's a bit silly to discuss this, but I just wanted to share. In World War Z, I cannot count how many times I thought to myself "oh man, he got lucky.". Seems every situation they got out of was based on pure luck. Not because of wits or fast thinking. That's the thing with sprinters. They don't give you as much choice on how to deal with them, other than to run for your life and hope for the best. Not so much with walkers. They're slow, so you can act accordingly. You can plan, adapt, etc. You can work your way around them. You can defeat them by being smart about it. There's not so much luck involved as apposed to sprinters. Just to show you what I mean. Sprinters:  Get the f*ck out of Dodge. Walkers:  Carefully pick what record you're going to throw. You might wanna listen to a few of those again once all of this blows over. TL;DR: Your luck needs to be at Nathan Drake level in order to survive in a world infected with sprinters. You can be smart and adapt to situations when walkers rule the world.

Freedom Won't Be Living On The Streets!

by on
Hello, I don't blog much, but I feel this one deserves to be posted. Last Summer, in June, my dad threw me, my brother and my mother out of the house because he wanted to sell the place. It would make him more money. Now you know what my dad is like. Anyway, my older brother took us in. It was a small appartment, but we had a roof over our heads. We've stayed here ever since. Now, for reasons we have to leave his appartment. It's not possible to live in such a small place with four people. We were going to be on the streets this Friday. It was possible for us to stay at a homeless shelter, but everyone was allowed to sleep there. No regulation. A room to sleep in wasn't guaranteed. So, we would sleep in that place(whenever we could) during the night, and during the day we would roam the streets. But not anymore. We found a place today. We got keys. Contract has been signed, and we're moving in this Monday. We're still allowed to stay the weekend here. So, Monday is Moving Day. F*ck. I feel so happy. This shit was keeping me, and my family down. We were so prepared to be out on the streets this Friday. But we have something, so it's all good. Anyway, just felt like sharing. I'd also like to thank those that listened to my stories regarding this situation. Their kind words. It really helped.

Back! back! back! back! back!

Yes, freedom's back. I don't know how I feel about the break. Useless describes it quite well, although it's fun to see some faces I didn't get to see on the off-site. Not to mention, TR is coming out. I need to be here for that. I have a bet regarding the score. Not gonna wuss out. Will boast when I get it right. Anyway, hello everyone :D How's it going?

I need a break, I think.

by on
Yeah, a break from Gamespot. I've been posting a lot. A LOT. I've been here for 8 years, and I've just grown tired of posting. Shame though, I like it here, but I find it hard to reply to a thread these days. Even the Lounge has been pretty meh. I might return. Probably. I just think a break would be nice. Maybe when next gen arrives things will pick up again. Hope so. I don't really know what else to say, really. It's been a good 8 years. I'll respond to any questions you have in the comments for a while. Uhmm... I guess that's it. It's been fun. It's been great, and above all, it's been a pleasure. Be nice to eachother.

Seriously. I'm not kidding. There's no reason why you shouldn't like Sagem. He's too nice. He makes me feel good about myself. He makes other users feel good about themselves. The kind soul SW needs. The kind soul..I need. But what is it? His Belgian kindness? Persona sigs? Posting style? The use of the ":oops:" emoticon? I'm not sure. Nobody is, I guess. He's just like that. I like him, NO, I love him. This blog post is for him. To show him what he means to me. I sure hope he'll read it. Comment on it. Cherish it. freedomfreak loves you, Sagem. Let this be known to all of GS!  :oops:

Where did Lto_thaG go, freedom?

by on

What happened to Lto_thaG is quite simple. Nothing. Last year I tried to log in into my LG account and I was unable to.

My password was wrong. I tried a few times, but to no avail. I decided to change my password. It asked me to put in my email address, which I did. Then a message popped up saying the email address(tied to LG) didn't exist in the GS database.

Weird, isn't it? There was not much I could do, since changing my password was a huge no-no.
Customer Support board?
I asked around there. They gave me a password recovery link that also failed to work. I tried that 3 times. Nothing.
After that I decided to go back to the first account I ever made, future500.

I logged in. Everything worked, except my usernamehad suddenly become freedomfreak. My posts had disappeared and so did my blog posts. My ratings, reviews. Everything. It was like a new account. Everything goneexcept the join date.

Yeah, so I decided to just go with it. I haven't bothered logging into LG anymore, nor do I care at this point. LG is not banned. It's still there floating around. It just cannot be grabbed.

That's pretty much it. I hope that explains why I'm freedomfreak now.
Thanks for reading. Thanks for the interest.


In My Dreams You're Blowing Me...

...some kisses.

Hello readers of my blog.

There's a lot of games coming out this year. Games I want.
That's a good thing. Gaming is fun. I just hate having to wait for official release dates. Is it coming? Is it vaporware? Canned?

You never know.They force you to wait and twiddle your thumbs.That sucks.
I don't like it.It's not that I don't have the patience,I'm still waiting for that Freedom Fighters sequel,it's just that..
Well,you're never sure until you really know.

I don't know.I'm just rambling.
Anyway,I'm still playing games.Peace Walker bosses suck.They take ages to finish.

I'm doing something wrong.In that case,leave some tips that can help me shorten the battles against these machines.

I still need to finish LA "gets boring after the first half" Noire,Ninety Nine Nights,Skyrim,Guardian of Light,From Dust and Bully.


Thanks for reading.Leave a comment.Whatever u want.

I've Got A Zombie Army and You Can't Harm Me.

Well,what to talk about?

Not much really.I just felt like making a blog post.I'm sure many people were eagerly awaiting my ramblings.
Life's good,life's kind.
I've been playing a lot.Games.A lot.I don't know why.I kinda lost it a few months ago.I just didn't want to play anymore.I got annoyed with everything I bought.

Now I'm back on the horse.Gaming again,which is nice.I've also stopped being a cynical cvnt about games.Usually I would just look at the bad stuff/flaws and rant about those without even mildly praising the things a game did right.

Not anymore! I do critisice though,when it's justified but I just don't pay as much attention to them anymore.If I'm having fun,it's a good game.The flaws/story/characters and all that are things of the past.Not that I can't appreciate them anymore,it's just that I stopped caring when they're mediocre or just horrible.

I'm a changed man,that's for sure and I like it.Criticising games is very easy but loving a game...fvck,man.This is just corny.
tl;dr:I like games now.
