Next Generation console not a priority but will likely sick with Xbox One

Since I have a top range PC, and a 360 already. I'm not in particullar rush for a new console when the next generation is released. apart from the unclear has to be online but not online (has to have a connection for every 24hours?) I see the xbox one still a strong console with a lot of potential. A new sleaker controller which in my opinion the best gaming controller. creating more exculives and the kinect being bundled in also are all positives. 

I think xbox might have done just enough to keep my loyalty for now, but its still early days.

Futurama!

hey guys just a post to say loving the new seires of futurama, thank you comdy central from saving this great show!

Update - from jackelzx

hello gamespotters, I have not been very active for a decade it feels - nothing wrong with a break which I did have with this site but it was longer when I couldn't figure out why the site didn't load on my new browser google chrome. firefox is getting dataed and slow for me - problerly because of all the add ons which I swear I didn't add but its unbearable to use now. But that gave me a reason to use chrome which I will say is alot better from my expriences.

I have just figured it out now what the problem was with my loading page, I had a add sweaper achtivated and it didn't load the site right.

So I was thinking about creating a new account on here - a fresh start of somesort to see if I can get back in I never liked my name on herre any way haha, so if you would be happy to add me again that would please me. i'll add the name latter if i do create one.

Jackelzx

Well 2 years and My first warning!

Well I have been moderated for the smallest comment, on a really biased thred slating xbox's new device on the system wars, it was a small pun at the TC, a little laugh just for the sake of it ( a rubbish one one at that, not one of my best jokes) if you can't have banter on the sytem wars fourm then were can you!

Just wow gamespot 5*

Thoughts on stuff

hey all gamespotters, not the most creative name of a topic ehh :P

A rarity in me blogging, but since i'm on this site enough commenting on others views, I thought I just state some of my own.

I've recently downloaded the new tomb raider game "trail" and I must say I was very impressed, The game was so easy to pick up, and I am thinking hard if I should get it, a must download for you on xbox live and some thing to look out for on psn is that right playstaion fans?

I would also like to say I'm really impressed with the new beta IGN as released on there site... I'm not sure how gamespot would take to that...well I need some followers, so if you have an acount on the site follow me my name is FantasyFate

Also to anyone who cares about football, (english) I'm not very happy about my club being bottom of the league.. buts its only three games in, new manager so I have my fingers crossed.

hope you have a good week, I'll keep a look out.

Red Dead Redemption Review

Rockstar games have lasso and hogtied another great game. To their impressive collection of games, even with the bugs and faults that can be found within the game, Red Dead is not knocked back. Time to jump on your horse back and let the adventure begin.
Story
To put it simply, you play as a ex bandit called John Marston, who needs to clean up his past, but of course it doesn't go to plan, this is where you start playing. The story is a blast and theirs so many twists and turns you may just
collapse. You will meet some great charaters along the way which will guide you through and help you with your main task.


Gameplay
If you have played GTA4 another game created by Rockstar then you should have an idea how this game will feel, I was not a fan of the way the charater on GTA4 felt, to heavy, clumsy and you get this again on red dead. Even if you have not played the fourth GTA you should still find no problem picking up the controls, they are simple and easy to use.
They have kept the simi automatic lock on, where you pull out your gun it will lock on to a enermy and sometimes an inicent if near by, this option is useful for new comers and can be taken off if you want more of a challenge.
A new aiming system as been introduced with Dead Eye, this slows down time and is a blast to use when you get your self in a sticky situation, which you should find your self in a few times across the main story.

The gameplay his where you will encounter a good amount of bugs and glitchs which can really dampen your experience. From minor ones like a NPC sitting down on fresh air? to major ones like floating into the sky and being dropped to your death, the latter did happen to me and I did not find it amusing. Keeping with the bugs and glithces they also make aperances in the cut sences out of all places, one example is a NPC who had a tnt stick on him was invisible. that was amusing.

The covering system in the game is poor to say lightly, you can take cover behind houses, boulders and other objects you may encounter, but I seem to always come across a fault, if its that they can still shot me when I'm in cover to not being able to pull my gun out.

Mini Games - Jobs

Their is a life out there without the main story, you have the opportunity to explore, work and gamble. These may not be the most exiting gaminging expriance out there but it is something to keep the game fresh, their are plenty of different games to play like poker and black jack, nothing new here and simple join and play. other games like horse shoe is where you will find a unique exprience. that you can judge for the selft I'm not going to waste my time.
Jobs are out there like like horse breaking, night watch and bounty hunter which can get you some money, I don't see it as the best way to make money but agian its something fresh and away from the main story.

Now I can't forget duels, you will encounter people dying to have a duel with you. which I'm always happy to accept, these are fun but over very quickly so be prepared and hope you have a faster trigger finger. You will exprience at least a few in the main story, with adtional ones in side quests and just random events.

Horses - and other stuff

What's a western game with out the horses, a their are plenty of them in this game, you can catch and break them for your self, race them, kill them skin them with other creatures and sell produce at shops, what I'm saying they have a big role in the game. It may take a while to learn to ride one, you may get kicked of a few times too. but when you get use to them you be riding around the desert in no time at all.
The game as introduced a quick travel idea which you need to camp in the wild and select your destination, this is good for saving you long trips which can become a real pain.

Overall

Its a great game which will be you interested for times to come, there are plenty of bugs and faults which may annoy you, but the charaters, the places and the action is to good not to experience.

Overall rating 9/10

Writing reviews!!

Hopefully if I have time, I am planning on writing some reviews on games I've played, just informing you guys to keep a look out if your interested, I need some writing practice and I can't think of many better ways. Games I may review are, red dead redemption, Sims 3, midnight club la and dragon age, these are my recently played games so its all fresh in my mind.

Do you think its a good idea to post my reviews in my blog, make it easier to update people and fill up my blogging post?

Random Blog

Hey all, its been a while since I last posted so I'll go through some random stuff I've done

First.. pokemon heartgold, I have collect of gym badges and recently caught mewtwo within six ultra balls which was lucky, also the water dog which I think counted over 200 balls to be caught arrhhh such a pain. now I'm just training for the big match against red.

Other news the exercising is going good, and finding it a bit easier recently, and start feeling a lot more fitter which is all good, but a new problem now is I can't lose the nibbles... I seem to be eating **** like crisps and them damn cookies. lol
