Hello everyone!! It has been a long time and once again I am sorry. The last month has been difficult because of final exams and papers I had to write. However, I am now on break until the last week of January 2011 so i will be able to post a bit more. Once again Merry Christmas to all of you (even if you might not celebrate it) and I got a camera for Christmas. I might be able to post pics now in future blogs. Most of the pics may deal with holidays, new games or movies that I get, or maybe just random times with friends.
In terms of gaming, I am currently playing Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Call of Duty: Black Ops. For 360 I recently got Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince. All of the games are good but I am really enjoying Uncharted. I borrowed it from a friend and am planning to buy Uncharted 2 with some of my X-mas money.
This Christmas feels weird because I didn't ask for much but am grateful for what I got. I received a long sleeve polo shirt from my god parents along with $60. My parents got me the camera and $50.
Really looking forward to this break since it feels like I've been doing nothing but studying since the beginning of December.
Hope all is well and best wishes to everyone. Take care!
Hey everyone. I thought I'd do a blog on a game I'm looking forward to. In case some of you have not read some of my blogs from last year, then you might not know that I am a fan of achievements/trophies. Anytime I find a game that provides a challenge and also has attainable achievements/trophies, I definitely consider playing it. Regardless, I still find myself playing games for the sheer joy of playing them.
I view achievements/trophies as a kind of bonus material. My first playthrough will mainly focus on the story of the game. The second playthrough is mostly for getting any achievements/trophies that I missed. The reason for this blog is because of the achievements for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part I Videogame which comes out tomorrow. (Click here for the list)
A few days ago, The Kinect was finally released and Harry Potter 7 is one of the first games to still have standard gameplay mechanics with a few Kinect modes thrown in. I really would like to own the Kinect but I don't have a lot of money and I'm not sure if my room will be big enough to give me ample space to move around (according to the Kinect camera).
The problem I have is that HP7 Part I has Kinect specific achievements. Without the Kinect, I cannot get the full 1000 gamerscore for the game. Some of you may be saying "So what?" but it annoys me that EA expects me to buy the game and the Kinect in addition just to do this. I appreciate that the game is Kinect compatible but I don't feel that Kinect achievements should be a part of these games (especially this early in the Kinect's release since I don't think everyone can afford or has one)
My only solutions are either to wait till I get the Kinect and then get the game or just get the PS3 version (Most likely option)
Like I said earlier, this is just my view on achievements/trophies. Please don't bash me for my thoughts. However, let me know what your thoughts are on achievements/trophies.
Thanks for reading!
Sorry for the delay everyone. Enjoy!
