sitrep: 5880g as of 10am today...
ok wow. a lot happened in my world as a whole over the weekend, which makes how much happened in my gaming world that much more impressive to me. i have no idea how i got so much done. so here goes...
alright so i got some work done on my car, bought some new earbuds, bought the supplies and repaired the lawn mower and then summarily defeated the amazon monster that was my backyard. and of course i went out to the bar with 'go and drank heavily saturday nite too. awesome.
in the midst of all that i picked up two ms point cards, picked up grid, beat a developer in my very first online race, and really got into ninja gaiden2..and that was just friday nite.
saturday i sold about 5.5 million in cars on the forza2 auctionhouse. i rounded out the majority of my fast and furious car collection also. started uploading my car photos to my page on forza's community page too. i cleared five tourneys, and another event class is cleared.
i bought commander: attack of the genos for arcade, and got a few achievements on all my other arcade games. i downloaded the bad company demo, and i gotta say vegas2 and cod4 are still far superior games....least thus far. it feels like bad company can't decide if it's realistic or cartoony. additionally your movement mechanic is a lil goofy. the driving mechanic is totally buggered as well. you get in vehicles with the b button? but what's worse...the gas is the ---left trigger---?!? and the brake is the left bumper? also in the demo you can only hold one gun? no holdout? wtf...i dunno, it's definitely got something to prove to me now.
i beat stranglehold on normal which was really rough, but the more i play that game the more i appreciate it. the work that went into that game is totally overlooked in my opinion. if you don't have it, go rent it and give it three play sessions. you'll be hooked.
i also completed tenchuZ. my first 100% completed game 1000 of 1000 pts is mine. kinda sad. i may start a new save on my alternate gamertag. now then, on the note of ninja action let us address ninja gaiden 2...i am taking the game back. and i rarely do that with a title anymore. in fact last time i did that was with dead or alive 4...hmm. curious, both games made by tecmos former golden boy itagaki. both games also had unbelievably cheap bosses to the point of bosses cheating. i got some points out of the title, and i knew it was gonna get harder so i had farmed pts to fully upgrade my dragon sword and genshin still owned me!! i cannot emphasize this enough....17 attempts. i made 17 attempts on that boss, and got butchered every single time! i used the strategy guide and i got butchered anyway. the game was going out of it's way to insult me and my gaming ability. and sorry but if i wanted insulting trash talk i'd play halo3 multiplayer after school let's out. so don't buy that game, unless u really enjoy getting hurt inexplicably.
so back to the good stuff...i finally finished getting all the cog tags in gears, huzzah! rsv2 finally saw me reach 2nd lieutenant's rank. i got another mission beaten on hardened for cod4, i made it thru most of arcadia in bioshock, annnd...i think that was about it before i passed out from exhaustion. but boy howdy what a productive weekend!
