What.. did you expect a blog?...
Well I delivered.

The word of the month is: Philistine. Yeah, its a great derogatory term to call someone. A Philistine: "is said to despise or undervalue art, beauty, intellectual content, or spiritual values. Philistines are also said to be materialistic, to favor conventional social values unthinkingly, and to favor forms of art that have a cheap and easy appeal." Its a pretty heavy word to use can describe a lot of people for sure. You're probably not a Philistine. You're probably highly intelligent, and have exquisite taste:P.
I was contemplating getting Sam and Max Season 3 for $24.99 from the PSN store. By the way is that game really good? I don't know as I've never played a Sam and Max game. I've heard the series is really funny. Lots of good one liners.
Is that Elmo from Sesame street? CL4SSY
I've never liked a shooter as much as I have liked Battlefield: Bad Company 2... EA, if you're listening you can use this...
Note: my blog has been sensored all words that are **** are the word CL4SS.
The game got an 88%ish from Gamerankings (probably because of its lackluster Single player). I wouldn't know, I haven't played single player yet.
Bad Company 2 is like if Modern Warfare and Red Faction: Guerilla and Battlefield 2 got cooked by some cRaZY Mad Scientist....
1) I love destructible physics. After this game my standards are such that I won't buy another FPS if it doesn't have destructible physics. I won't care about Killzone 3 if you can't blow up walls.
Look at all the holes in those walls. Its a beautiful thing.
Theres nothing like firing a rocket at a building wall to make a quick escape. Or taking down a building with a tank. Or breaking through a fence with a machine gun.
Everything is destructible in this game, short of the concrete blocks, Hills, and buildings that are "out of bounds" of the battlefield. As Yatzee said on his Zero Punctuation, smoke goes up as the game renders the destructible physics like a curtain that goes up before a magician performs.
I liked Red Faction, but the guns just didn't feel right. Red Faction: G has a great destructible physics engine. Theres nothing like using the blackholes to rip apart a group of buildings or any number of other crazy weapons in that game.
2) the game handles well (Bad Company 2). It controls like: Modern Warfare 2 or Starwars: BattleFront 2 (PS2/Xbox) or MAG
The joystiq clicks for running, the gun buttons are triggers (what you expect), the control pad lets you select your ****s special weapon:
The Medic gets health pack and magical reviving paddles that bring back even the most cold dead corpse. The medic specializes in a machine gun with a ridiculous clip size of about 100 bullets, so you can take out quite a few bad guys before you have to reload. The Recon gets C4 or Airstrike depending on how you are spec'd, and a sonar/radar/see-through-walls-radar/motion-sensor that reveals enemies for about 20 seconds.
The Recon is your traditional sniper, they get crazy long range scopes and can reveal enemy positions by just scoping them out (with a certain ability). The Assualt ****gets a grenade addition to their regular Machine Gun.
Assualt ****can also get additional gun equipment like a shotgun attachment or a smoke grenade attachment. Every Assualt ****gets Ammo packs which can refill their ammo as well as other soldier's ammo.
The Engineer specializes in submachineguns and wears a balaclava. He looks like hes gonna rob a bank or something. The engineer has a repair tool which can also "disassemble" enemy tanks instantly. The engineer also wields a rocket of 3 different flavors: RPG, urban-warfare, and guided (for taking out helicopters).
3) You regenerate health like Master Chief. I hate having to search for health packs. And if you want to refill your health completely and quickly a medic can do that.
4) Multiplayer is awesome! There soon will be coop (Onslaught mode). This game has better uptime for me than Uncharted 2 Multiplayer (I actually stopped playing Uncharted online because I lost levels from losing my connection with their server). Oh yeah, you don't lose levels if you disconnect
5) "Most" Downloadable content is free (the maps) you get a VIP code if you purchase a new copy (I wonder if this is to cut down on second hand sales). They do have "other" downloadable content you have to pay for, they seem pretty minor so far (I'm not paying $5 for minor content). Who knows maybe they'll add a Portal gun
6) Its a TEAM game. So you don't have to be the greatest marksman to ever have weilded the rifle to... eh play the gun game. Having a mic makes it better but I play and I don't have a mic (I'm a lone wolf).
7) Camping and Sniping can bring down your success as a team. I hate being sniped. What I hate more is when half my team is sniping, and not going for the point. This also works to your advantage, if your opponent is all snipers. You only need so many snipers.
(I always forget "8 )" is actually 8) awesome sunglasses, gets me every time )
8: The sniper rifle is more realistic than say... Halo. No precise sniping, bullets actually arc, and you have to compensate for that. I don't know if wind is in play though (I suppose it could be more realistic).
Tips: Some of my favorite specs:
-Recon with Shotgun and C4 (kind of counter intuitive, but trust me its awesome **** they won't see it coming)
-Recon with the submachine gun sniper with a 4x zoom on it (the sniper works better close range than the Engineer's SMG)
-Engineer with RPG and all the rocket upgrades (for maximum damage and rocket sniping)
-Assult with F2000 with 4x zoom and body armor
-Medic with almost any setup (my favorite ****because: the machine gun has the biggest clip and revives give you as many points as a kill)
*Well this was certainly better use of my time than studying for a final thats worth 50% of my grade.
**What was I thinking a better use of my time would have been to just play the D4MN game instead of tell you all how awsome it is.
Oh did you know in LItTle BIG plaNet you can can paste objects onto sackboy's face and add it to your costumes. I didn't know that either. So one time I stuck an egyptian pillar on sackboy's face. Oh one more thing, you can place objects on resurrection portals so the player doesn't know where they will come back. Very Sneaky...
Oh I think Brain Chips are awesome. I'm not talking about the food (cuz that would be gross). You see I just got one installed and now I have double the short term memory I used to. Just imagine in a few years we'll be torrenting for knowledge or understanding that we install directly into our brains. I would hate to download someones nightmares though. Hey I just gave you all an idea (oh wait kind of an old Idea: aka Neuromancer by Gibson).
Stay in school, don't do drugs, play games until your hands hurt from blisters and your eyes get bloodshot from lack of blinking. May you get skinny because you were having so much fun playing games you forgot to eat. Oh one more thing; stay away from World of Warcraft, (read carefully) I used to have friends who played that game. Hint: they still play World of Warcraft.
One more thing I composed another song. Go and listen to it if you like music. I'm Aeos if someone happens to post another song (after the one I posted). Its short, slightly over 3 minutes (I once did a song that was longer than 10).
If you don't like music. Well um... I don't have anything for you. I have a brother who doesn't like music, he happens to be very good at math, I wonder if theres a coorelation... hmm.. a thought for another day I suppose. If you don't like music and aren't good at math :lol:... (runs away)
If you read this far... stop reading. The shows over. Go home. Take a nap. I give you one thing. You're persistent. This like staying after the credits. And then after the bonus scene about something crazy that happens after the cliff hanger ending of the movie. What ever you do don't read the spoiler. I warned you. Do not under any circumstances read that spoiler. Now I bet you really wonder what is under there. I'm sure you're very curious, I know I would be. If I were you I would highly recommend NOT looking at the spoiler. If you want to get any sleep tonite or the nite after that or the rest of your life. This would be a moment I would recommend you practice the utmost self-control. Don't look at it. DOn't even THINK of looking at it. Who knows what could be lurking under there.
