I finally got around to renting Gears of War, and let me tell you, I was impressed. The graphics were amazing, the fighting was intense, and the Beserkers scared the poop out of me. The only problem is that I never figured out how to use the chainsaw. The atmosphere was the best part about the game. The cover system is pretty good, but it could have used some tweaking. The hammer of dawn is one of the coolest weapons ever. At this point, I wouldn't call it a Halo killer, but definitely a contender. In other news, I am 2/3 of the way through Gamespot's right of passage. It's a common misconseption that level 20 is a glitch. It's done on purpose. Look up Metal Slime and you'll see the reference. I kind of like the level 20 thing now. Once I pass it I won't be a n00b anymore. Until next time:
Well, my 360 went out on me again today. I think it might just be overheating. That makes summer even more boring. I haven't had anything to blog about for a week and a half, and today is no different. I just thought I would bore you all as well. Isn't the OT supposed to get better during the summer? It's getting worse by the day. I can't even see half of the threads due to my 56k disease. And my pinky hurts like hell from Guitar Hero. I'll have to start playing with the lefty flip on or something. I really hope I don't get carpal tunnel or anything. Until next time-
Seriously people, cut the big spoon jokes. They're not funny. In other news, it took me 2 hours to beat the water temple with the walkthroughs. The spirit and shadow temples were so easy I wanted to cry. Bongo Bongo was tough as hell though. I finally made it to the magic number 20. I guess I'm a senior gamespot member now. I want cake. Anyone who gives me cake will be rewarded. I bought A Link to the Past for $7 last Friday. The cartridge has a big crack in it, so I don't know if it will work yet. All that, and more things you don't care about next time at: jim_shorts' blog.
...and I still have nothing to talk about. Life is boring. Sometimes I think my cat is the only thing that gets me through. I've been trying to beat Call of Duty 2 on veteran. If anyone has done this successfully, I commend you. I still haven't gotten past the water temple on Oot. Actually, I'm no further than I was last time. See how boring I am? You all hate me don't you. *sobs uncontrollably*
