Game of the Week IMO:
Age of Conan: Hyborian Nights
Of Course it's this.
Some of the good games this week too is Wii Fit, Haze ( Hardcore FPS lovers/ PS3 Exclusive lovers) and Uefa Euro 08
If you check my blog posts before, you will know about this! Alas, I got from my lazy manner and wrote this!! Thank you for reading!:)
At Heartland Mall, my father bought for me a Nintendo DS and I bought Ys Strategy ( lame right ( free gift!) and Pokemon Diamond. I played Ys Strategy for the first mission and did not play it again... For pokemon Diamond, I have not even beat the Elite Four yet... Then, I bought Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team. It was freak hard. After that, I got Zendoku for free ( My mother won it in a lucky draw).
For my DS, I have shamelessly not met with Professor Layton and not bought New Super Mario 64 and some other good titles...
I got my PSP second-handed from my Aunt's neighbour. It was with Donkey Kong: The official game of the movie. It was OK, i guess. Then, I bought Fifa 08. It was so dum*. It used the hard to use analog stick. After that, I bought both Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions and Harvest Moon: Boy and Girl at the same time. Those two were great, especially FFT.And of course, the two new games I have just bought: Patapon and Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops.
I did not get Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII :( cause it was not at the store :( and God of War: Chains of Olympus :(
Me and my brother got a PS3 at Heartland Mall (again!) for both getting first in cla$$:). We bought Tiger Woods pga tour 07, Spiderman 3 and Street Homecourt. There are not many good games for my PS3... :( Then, I bought Assassin's Creed. It was the only Editor's Choice game for my PS3:(.
Next time, I shall buy Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction, Burnout Paradise, Heavenly Sword, MGS4( when it comes out), Infamous ( also, when it comes out), Killzone 2 ( again) and some others.
I got a Wii using my own money at Funan IT Mall. I got Battalion Wars 2, Geometry Wars: Galaxies and Mario Strikers Charged. For the Wii, I think it has much potential but most third-party developers are not helping. They create some lousy games( E.g. Target Terror etc.) but! some are helping. I got Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 later. After that, I got SSBB, then MK Wii, SMG, SPM.
I did not get some one the good games like No More Heroes, Twilight Princess and many more... too bad.:(
This is most likely to be my last part of the Gaming History. I hope u liked it :)
This time, six games. Almost all or all games are great:).
Lost Odyssey (X360)
Mass Effect (X360)
Super Mario Galaxy (At Last)(Wii)
Super Paper Mario (Wii)
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops (PSP)
OMG. The achievement Off the Boat from gta IV, I did not unlock it. After the first mission, it did not register that I unlocked that achievement...
Saturday, I went to Heartland Mall. And bought GTA IV and Mario Kart Wii. Woo Hoo!
That was great.
Faction Profile - The Brotherhood of Steel
How, exactly, does one worship technology?
Is it as simple as praying to a gold, robotic calf? Perharps "god" is recognized as some kind of sentient artificial inteligence who demands subservience in charge of feats and favours?
Or maybe, just maybe, the human race has already answered to this question: technology is worshipped, simply and plainly, through obsession attainment. We are people dominated by technology, from our electrically-powered cities right down to our scientifically engineered anti-depresscant medications. And every Sundey mass we miss to stay home to watch football on our HDTVs is further proof that now, more than ever, technology is the diety we hold most dear.
Imagine, if you will, the Brotherhood of Steel.
In Fallout 3, the Brotherhood of Steel is one of the most important and influencial faction you'll encounter. And while it's true that they are a military organization, the Brotherhood's values and command structure is actually more representative of amedieval knight order. Like the templars of old, in their own eyes, the members of the Brotherhood are pure, they are just-they are truely human in a world filled in both physical and moral corruption.
But it is the worship of technology that truely defines and drives them. For a Brotherhood of Steel Paladin, Power Armor is his plate mail, a powered Super Sledge his warhammer.A non-combatant Scribe is more scientist than scholar, utilizing computers as a monk in the Middle Ages would a quil and ink.
It's not enough for the Brotherhood of Steel's members to use whatever high-tech gagetry they've acquired, though. The organization's entire existance is predicated on the acquisition of technology. Whatever they've got is never enough. Their best equipment? It could be better. Even if this search of high-tech toys means keeping the hands of others who could really benefit from it, well, that's okay with the Brotherhood of Steel.
So it did'nt come as a suprise to anyone within the Brotherhood of Steel when the order's ruling council, based in Southern Canifornia, decide to send a contigent of soldiers all the way to the East Coast, with two important objectives:
1.To scour the ruins of Washington D.C., once the nation's capital, and recover any and all advanced technology. After all, Washington D.C. was the home of the Pentagon, the very headquaters of the United States Department of Defence.Who knows what secrets- or equipment- they left behind?
2.To investigate the reports of Super Mutant activity in the area. Could these creatures be somehow related to those that fled eastwards after the Master's destruction ( as depicted at the end of Fallout 1)? Or were these super mutants something else entirely?
When the group finally arrived in the Capital Wasteland, it didn't take long before they made some remarkable discoveries.
The Pentagon, as they had feared, was largely destroyed. But its sub-levels remained intact, and contained enough pre-war technology and weaponry to keep Lyons' forces going indefinitely (once the defense robots were destroyed). But there was something else, as well... a technological marvel that, if restored, could help the Brotherhood rebuild a strength and reputation that had been declining steadily for years.
The discovery was significant enough to earn Paladin Lyons a battlefield promotion to Elder, and a new directive from his superiors - to establish a new, permanent Brotherhood base in the Capital Wasteland, and continue the search for any other advanced technology hidden in the capital's ruins.
Lyons accepted his new post gladly, and founded the Citadel, built into and beneath the ruins of the Pentagon. It was a fortress the Brotherhood of Steel desperately needed, and one they rushed to fortify, thanks to their other great discovery - Super Mutants.
It didn't take long for Lyons and the Brotherhood of Steel to find the Super Mutants, mostly because they didn't have to: the Super Mutants found them. In the Capital Wasteland - particularly in the urban ruins of downtown DC - the Super Mutants simply couldn't be avoided.
That's why, for the people of the Capital Wasteland, the Brotherhood of Steel was the answer to their prayers. Scattered, hungry, and largely disorganized, they had lived with the constant threat of death or capture by the Super Mutants for as long as they could remember. Elder Lyons and his brave Knights and Paladins changed all that. For the first time, the Super Mutant tide was stemmed. The D.C. ruins were still Super Mutant controlled and uninhabitable, that was true, but the number of incursions against outlying settlements dropped significantly. Life was still harsh and unfair, but at least now the people of the Capital Wasteland had a fighting chance - and they had Elder Lyons and the Brotherhood to thank for that.
Fighting the Super Mutants, simply keeping them at bay, may have been enough for the area's innocents, but for the Brotherhood, too many questions remained, how were these local Super Mutants created? Why were they capturing the people of the Capital Wasteland? Where were they taking them? Finding these answers would, ultimately, become Owyn Lyons' obsession.
The years passed, but not in a way anyone had foreseen. Indeed, the Brotherhood of Steel's importance to the people of the Capital Wasteland was not something that Lyons ever expected. Nor was it something his superiors back in California cared at all about. Their newest Elder had a clearly defined mission - to acquire advanced technologies in and around the ruins of Washington D.C. Finding the source of the Super Mutant threat and destroying it was important too, of course. But that shouldn't take too long... right? Surely the Brotherhood of Steel could handle a few Super Mutants? How hard could it be to locate and eliminate their source? Lyons' prime objective was, first and foremost, the acquisition of technology. The Super Mutants were his second priority. Thus was the subject of every communication from the Brotherhood of Steel leadership in California.
But Elder Owyn Lyons had another priority, one he considered more important than his original directive or any orders received since - the protection of the innocent people of the Capital Wasteland. And so, Lyons sent word to his superiors that he would continue his search for technology when he was damned good and ready, and would not sacrifice the people who had come to rely on the bravery and strength of the Brotherhood of Steel.
The Californian corridors of Lost Hills erupted in rumor and speculation. Had Owyn Lyons "gone native," putting the needs of the people of D.C. above those of the Brotherhood itself? Or had a Brotherhood Elder finally exhibited the selfless behavior that should serve as a model for the entire order? Caught in the middle, the ruling Elders made the only decision they could - they would still recognize Elder Lyons as a leader of the Brotherhood of Steel, and the Citadel as their D.C. headquarters. But all support from the West Coast was thereby cut off. If Lyons wanted to pursue his own agenda on the East Coast, he would do it alone.
So that's what the stalwart Elder did. The Capital Wasteland division of the Brotherhood of Steel, headquartered in the Citadel, became its own entity: still affiliated with the Brotherhood of Steel on the West Coast, and bound by its laws and customs, but otherwise completely independent.
Most of Elder Lyons' soldiers supported his dedication to the people of the Capital Wasteland, and were proud of their leader's commitment to honor and heroism. But there were those who voiced their opposition - loudly, and aggressively. They believed that by abandoning the Brotherhood of Steel's primary mission of acquiring new technologies, Elder Lyons had abandoned the very values that defined the order itself.
One night, the dissenters departed from the Citadel, absconding with weapons, Power Armor, and other pieces of technology and equipment. This was, without question, Owyn Lyons' darkest hour. He had become a man of compassion and understanding, and couldn't help but sympathize with those who had left: he had abandoned the Brotherhood's primary mission. He recognized that, and took full responsibility. Some of the Knights and Paladins who left had been his battle brothers for years. Together, they had shared victory and loss, pain and elation. But to those soldiers loyal to Elder Lyons, this dereliction of duty and theft of technology was an act of cowardice and treason. Lyons was left with little choice: he branded the dissenters "Outcasts," traitors to the Brotherhood of Steel - it was a name they would ultimately wear like a badge of honor, proud of the distance it put between themselves and Lyons' "soldier sycophants".
Such is the state of the Brotherhood of Steel when you, the player, enter the picture, in the year 2277. The order is still dedicated to the protection of the people. Its members are tough, loyal, and bound by honor... and they're also barely scraping by.
Elder Lyons' daughter Sarah is now a grown woman, and one of the Brotherhood's fiercest warriors; in fact, she's the only member to have achieved the illustrious rank of Sentinel, and now commands her own elite squad, Lyons' Pride.
The war with the Super Mutants - a conflict that has continued unceasingly for over twenty years - rages on, and the Brotherhood is feeling the strain of this extended conflict. Without reinforcements from the West Coast, Lyons has been forced to recruit locally, and the results have been less than stellar: most new conscripts are overeager, unskilled, or both, and as a result their survival rate is atrocious. So low, in fact, that that word has spread throughout the Capital Wasteland - join the Brotherhood of Steel, and you'll be dead within the week.
The Outcasts have grown in power since their split from the Citadel, and have re-dedicated their lives to what they consider the Brotherhood of Steel's only mission - the acquisition of new technologies.
It's certainly not how Elder Owyn Lyons expected his life to turn out, not the way he imagined his command would be chronicled in the historical archives. Such is a career of a Brotherhood of Steel Elder.
Now, only one question remains - when the Brotherhood of Steel Scribes record the events to come, what will they say about you?

I saved up and asked my parents if I could buy a Xbox 360. They agreed and one day, when they were out, they found a Xbox 360 at Courts and bought it. But, it was exam time so I could not play it till two weeks later.
I am skipping two weeks (unless you want to know about my exams). Two weeks later, I could play my beloved Xbox 360. It had Fifa 2006 the road to Germany 06 and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. I was not THAT happy with Fifa but Oblivion was one of the best games I played, even today.
After that, when at a game store at Funan, I bought Ninety nine nights. It was horrible. I regretted buying it. Then, I bought Call of Duty 2. It was brillant. Fantastic. After that, I bought PGR 3, or Project Gotham Racing 3. It was... good. Very good, I might say. Aftera that I bought Tony Hawk Project 8. It was OK, it was neither that exciting nor that lousy.
After that, I had exams, again. It lasted for three weeks. I bought other games. Then, I bought Gears of War. It was an instant classic. Then I bought Halo 3, a great multiplayer game. If you want to know all the games I have, be sure to go to my games. I have uploaded all the games I have, not like some people. In the next part, I am going to tell you the PS3 generation, which is really short, so I am going to tell you the Wii generation and some others. Be sure to check it out!
The first game I ever played was Diablo 2 on the PC. It was bought by my brother. I was addicted to it for its addictive fighting. Then, we bought Warcraft 3: Reign of Choas. The models were incredible, the gameplay fun and exciting.It was even better than Diablo 2. When I saw Diablo 2: Lords of Destruction, immediately I smiled, remembering the old days( while, so THAT old).I went to snatch it up and played it so long. After that, I bought the Warcraft 3 expansion. After that, I did not buy anything else - for a year. After a year, Me and my brother bought a PS2. It was my first console. I loved it and showered care to it. I bought Metal Gear, Popolo Crois, and some others. After that, I bought a Xbox and liked it better than the PS2, the best on the market. Why, you may ask. It is because of region lock. The Xbox convets US to Japanese ones, which I can play. The PS2, however, does not. If I was living in the US, I would definitely like the PS2 better. I bought games like Crisom skies, my first game, NBA Street V3 and many others. My favourite would be Halo, obviously. It had one of the best graphics then, with a great variety of guns, vehicles and the whatof.
After seeing a Xbox 360 advertisement, I decided that I would most definitely buy it. Before that, I mourned over the death of RTS Warcraft( or was it the other way round?). Blizzard, has switched to the MMORPG genre, or so it seems.Before I go to the next-gen revolution, let me take a break.
