Hi guys and girls, friday was an exciting day for me, a very special package was delivered to me! Around 2 weeks ago i ordered a new pc, iv been using a sony laptop for 2 years, its been a good laptop but i wasnt able to play any games on it and recently iv been wanting to start pc gaming, i wanted to try out the witcher 2 and other pc games so i decided to invest in a decent pc. I used to play pc games around 6 years ago but i did not have enough money back then to keep my computer up to date so it became outdated pretty quickly.
So i managed to get myself a fairly decent deal on a Dell computer, i also bought a new 23" screen to go with it and i am blown away by how beautiful it runs. I bought the witcher 2 at the weekend and tried it out, the game is fantastic, im finding the controls quite difficult since i havent played a game like this on a pc before, i only use to play rise of nations and sim city games. I can even manage to run the game on ultra without to much difficulty which is amazing considering my laptop struggled to play youtube videos half the time.
Anyway im not so clued up about specs but i had my husband sort all that out:). My pc is a-
Dell XPS 8300 Intel core i5-2320 cpu @ 3.00GHz
AMD Radeon HD 6450
Also i cant believe how quiet this thing is, my last pc was so noisey and annoying!
Yes the nintendo ds is nearing the end of its life and im sure a lot of ds fans have already moved onto the 3ds, most people probably think the ds is dead already but not me. I bought my first ds around a year after they were first released, i got the pearl pink one that came bundled with nintendogs, i think it was actually a xmas gift. At the time i really wanted one after playing a few games in the store, i was so looking forward to xmas to get it.
Well i have to say back then i was actually pretty disappointed in it, i bought a few games for it played it once or twice in the first few months and didnt touch it again until i got animal crossing wild world, i loved that game so much and must have put hundreds of hours into it overall. Still, that was the only game i really go into. Fast forward to 2009 and i decided to sell a lot of games for it, i had princess peach which i sold aswell as other mario games, at the time i needed the money because i was emigrating to canada and needed every penny i could get. I was left with about 6 games, 6 really mediocre games. I didn't want to sell my pink ds, i figured it was probably worthless anyway so i kept it.
At the start of 2011 i decided i was gonna try again with the ds, i went and bought the red 25th anniversary red one, its beautiful! Anyway over the course of the year i must have bought about 30 games, i love pretty much every game i have bought this year and now i am ds obsessed. Its great because there are so many ds games out there for really cheap, i get some amazing bargains, i know im late to the party but im having a blast. Now i just wanna collect every game i possible can for it, i don't know why i didn't see its awesomeness before? Oh well better late then never i guess! The only problem im having now is do i buy the 3DS or wait for a bigger library of games? I know as soon as the new animal crossing comes out i probably wont be able to stop myself anyway. :lol:
How is everyones day going? Mines pretty boring actually, iv done nothing at all today except eat, does anyone ever have any days where they just eat non stop? Maybe its a girl thing i dunno. Anyway i decided to stop playing skyrim until all the problems are fixed(if that ever happens) and im concentrating on skyward sword for now, iv just finished the first dungeon and im liking it so far.
Nearly xmas! This will be my second xmas away from my mum and dad and all the rest of the family, i couldn't afford to fly over to the uk again this year but hopefully i will see them in september by then it will be over 2 years since i saw them!:(
Anyway i hope your all well today:D
I don't usually buy games the day they come out but in this case i had to, i guess i got sucked in by the hype but it was hyped for a good reason, this game rocks! Im so addicted to it its crazy, i just wanna play it all day long. Im also purchasing zelda(bundle) on sunday when it comes out and im pretty excited for that to. Once i get my hands on that im gonna have to to stop buying so many games, my bank account can't handle it!
I think i will be doing a review for skyrim soon, im only 11 hours in but im pretty sure its gonna be my favourite game this year. I hope everyone else out there are enjoying it as much as me:)
Big dilemma, which one to get? I had my heart set on saints row, i wasn't even gonna get skyward sword until next year but i seem to have changed my mind. I think the zelda bundled with the gold remote and cd may have swung it for me! I would love to get both but couldn't possibly afford it right now, why oh why do the awesome games have to come out so close to xmas! I still need to get the new kirby game, unchartered 3,mw3 and skyrim! Anyone else out there having problems because of the huge amount of amazing games coming out this month?
