Toby is a horrible gamer yet his commentary makes his videos highly enjoyable to watch. He's played numerous games so there are a few different ones to watch so you can re-experience games you already played without spoiling another. But, he also does literal trailers.

On the downside I just started my new semester. I'm actuallyestatitic to be switching teachers and subjects alike but my course line-up isn't exactly made up of lollipops and dandelions. I've got math, french, chemistry and biology.I'm surprised theydidn't score an instant kill on me the first day back to school but I'm growing to live with them. Math and french seem easy enough so far; I'm enjoying the first unit of biology but chemistry it just confusing with all the new ideas the constantly hurl at you. Everything you wre taught a few years ago was a lie and it's alot more complicated than you originally thought. I'm glad to say I'm no longer afraid of the word isotope though.
And Mirror's Edge 2 was "stalled" not "cancelled" (hopefully), there seemed to be a lot of conflicting reports. If it was cancelled I'd be knocking down EA's door and knocking some sense into those guys (assuming EA would pay for my plane tickets and hotel in the first place). The first game was great and unique, something never done before, and for what I think, it was a success. Yes it was flawed but having a steep learning curve and no multiplayer is no reason to discontinue a franchise full of brimming potential. I'm not totally upset with EA, they set it aside for Battlefield 3 and jsut released Dead Space 2. DS2 is one of the most atmospheric games I've been in a long time and the single player is absolutely engaging. Now for an 8 hour campaign (on th easiest mode [no I'm not a pansy]) the full price may seem a little steep but it is a game that should make it's way to every gamers collection eventually.
Just to clear something up now instead of later. No, I'm not in denial about the fate of ME2.
Overall things have been going smoothy for me, or at least I like to believe they are. As long as I'm still breathing at the end of the day I don't see how things can be considered disastrous in unproprtional levels uncomprehensable to animalia.
Some of you may or may not know that I've been watching a superb show called Battlestar Galatica. I've been ranting about it for the past month, and for this past month it has actually played a pretty big part in my life. It's one of the few things that can help me truly unwind at the end of a day because I can just lay back and lose myself within the depth and intricacy of this show. (I'm not exactly sure what intracay means, it just fits.)
For a brief summary of the show, it's about a battlestar (essentially a space battleship that's a beast) named Galatica that is the only remaining battlestar in the fleet. There are 12 colonies that are attacked by giant toastersand I'm horrible at explaining the just of this show. This is what Google is for! Or MSN if any of you sly men/opposite genderlean that way. Just trust me, this is the best Sci-fi drama show there is.
Side note: Sorry if it seems I've been harassing you Ultrabeatdown as of late, but this is something I think you'd enjoy viewing a lot. Even though you may ever think it's as good as LOST, I hope it will one day be your number 2 show.
Now as of late this show has been throwing me through a bunch of emotions, the latest being upset in a good way (if that's possible).BSG Galatica only gets better as it progresses, and I've been hooked to it. At the end of every episode I want moar, and I usually get more. I usually end up using time I shouldn't to watch three episodes in a row. One ends and you need to know what happens next. Even during exams I was watching a couple episodes per day, and statistically I did better on exams where I watched 2+ episodes while trying to study. I could amble on about BSG forever, so I will, just not now. Consider yourselves spared.
I wish I had an unconventional super power just for the lulz. If you haven't noticed, the top half is the botom section and bottom section the top half.
Recently I purchased an iPhone 3GS planning tomainly use itas an iPod to play music since my old MP3 kept freezing. Once I started using it often I noticed it was capable of much more, including the ability to download numerous games. I wouldn't exactly callmost of these apps full-fledgedgames though, more like mini-games that'll keep you busy for a dozen minutes, nothing more. I've been playing quite a few of these but none could keep my attention focusedfor hours asAsh did, now it's hard to take the iPhone as a portable gaming device not seriously.
Ash is an old school 16-bit turn-based RPG that delivers an enjoyable story with accesable gameplay and a dash of great humor/sarcasm. The main story develops around two characters, one named Nicholas and the other Damien. Both witness the slaughtering of a village by the Imperial Black Guard and go into hiding but the plot becomes so much more interesting than when first viewed as the game progresses.
The art and music found in Ash both complement the game and enchance the experience. Enemies are well detailed and the music suits each new environment and situation. The battle system interface is well designed and allows the option to skip attack animations to speed through normal battles. Searching random items in the world is useful because you can find extra weapons and items; just don't go overboard. I was sointo this game I killed my iPhone fully charged twice in one day because I was playing it non-stop. It's a great game to pass the time with.
Ash is definitely worth your time and money. You can find it for $4.99 on the App Store or for free if you stumbled upon a promo. I highly recommend this game to anyone wanting to relive the great RPG days of old game platforms whohave an iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone. It's a nice little dose of nostalgia.
A little something extra. Space Time by Delta Heavy.
