All About HumanTorch101
Come check out how sweet my life is. and by sweet, i mean totally awesome.
For those who care, I am going to be switching my blogging over to Giant Bomb. I have my first one up now. My username is HT101 so if you want to know more about what's up with me and some of my thoughts, head over there.
Party safely and have fun.
With another break comes a new blog post. In video game news, I have bought the Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection which is pretty sweet but I still need to play more of the games on it as I have been playing other games. I also bought The Lost and Damned and really enjoyed it. I have all the achievements for that DLC but the achievements were not that hard. I thought it was a really good way to continue the GTA4 story through someone we met in the main story. The best part of it is of course the story but also the music they added in is truly excellent and really made the experience so much better. I am now psyched for the next part of the exclusive DLC.
The other game that I bought is Burnout Paradise and that game is pretty freaking sweet. It is so much better than Burnout Revenge and they continue to support it with awesome DLC like the Legendary Cars pack, which is one of the best buys just for the fact that you can drive a reimagining of the Dukes of Hazard car, with the horn that toots Dixie included. I am very glad that I purchased it. I now have almost 13,500 points on my gamerscore and I am going to work on 100% Mass Effect for my first 100% of a 360 game. The game that I am most excited for is the Ghostbusters game because it just looks like it will be amazing and I love Ghostbusters.
In HT news, the KSU Wildcats are in the NIT and won their first round game last night in OT. They are playing tomorrow night at San Diego State and then hopefully they will play in the 3rd round back in Manhattan. Not much else has been going on with me as I haven't bought any new DVDs so I am just waiting for summer. So in closing, have fun but party safely.
Well, it has been almost a half a year since I wrote a blog so I think I should put up one. In movie news, I have purchased many in the past few months including Tropic Thunder, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk plus others. I saw Quantum of Solace over my thanksgiving break and it was a good follow up to Casino Royale and it helped move the story along. It seems like Quantum will still be the focus of the next movie and that is fine with me. The movies that are coming out right now that I want to see are Valkyrie and some others that I can't think of right now.
In HT news, my computer has been on a roller coaster of a ride this semester from not being able to get on the network here at KSU to getting a trojan virus a couple of days after I was back on the network. I do like that we have an IT help desk here on campus and they do all of this work for free so I am saving hundreds of dollars most likely with the help they are providing me. I also finished my one and only final today so I will be returning to KC for Christmas break tomorrow and that lasts until January 14th or 15. I will then be going skiing over MLK Jr. weekend at Monarch Ski Resort in Colorado.
In video game news, I eclipsed the 10,000 point mark in gamerscore a month or so ago. I have been playing through GTA San Andreas and it is the most in depth of all the GTAs, including GTAIV. I would highly recommend it if you were like me and never played it before. The soundtrack for it is not as good as Vice City's but it is still much better than GTA IIIs or GTA IVs. I also played through many of the early fall releases like Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Saints Row 2 and Mercs 2. They were all pretty good titles but I have turned all of them at Gamestop. Saints Row 2 was probably the biggest disappointment because it had a terrible glitch where it would freeze up randomly and that was the reason that I traded it in. Over Christmas break, I am planning to play GTA 4 again to get some of the other achievements that I missed in my first playthrough like the under 30 hours playtime, survive on 5 star wanted level, wheelie and some other ones as well. I got Gears 2 and it is truly an excellent game except for the craptastic matchmaking that keeps it from being a 9.5 for me(on a scale that goes by .5 point increments).
Keeping with the video game news, I may get Rock Band 1 and 2 along with new guitars because I am not that interested in GHWT. I will also be playing more of Oblivion and The Orange Box because I am a horrible person and I haven't played through Half Life 2, Ep 1 and Ep 2.
That is about it for me so enjoy your Christmas or whatever you and your family celebrate this time of year and your New Years festivities.
As always, party safely and enjoy life.
