Fanboy-anism= the act of being a fanboy and believing like a true fan
You see, i cought that disease back in GUNDAM days...
It all started when i got a gundam game... which i actually forget the name of... when i was gripped on forever to be known as a fanboy. After that one game, i purchased EVERy gundam game that came out previously, and i got my eye set on my first antagonist= protagonist game, which i forget the title, but i remember it has something to do with ZEON, or the evil faction in the gundam series... YOU GOT TO BE THE BAD GUY!!! i remember i played that game for like a year straight, every year. Up untill the faithfull year of 2007, that is.
2007=the launch of the xbox 360. There was one thing that made me buy the 360 over a handfull of ps3 games, and it was not halo. It was indeed, mass effect. I remember playing an OXM demo and checking out a trailer of mass effect... i was AMAZED. so, i finally got my hands on that game and played, you won't believe it, over 500 hours worth of mass effect! Later on in 2008 era, i got halo 3, which did not appeal to me seing as i didn not have LIVE.
Well, as it turns out, in 2009 i was WAY overhyping mass effect 2, drooling over the same trailer, over and over and over again... then in the blink of the eye i had that game in my xbox 360! Truth is, i was AWED for the first 2 hours. The reason for that is because my 72' panasonic from 1992's color split, in other words, blues seperated themselves from yellows, which looked HORRIBLE, like some 3d movie without glasses on my humongous TV. My friends started getting into Halo 3 at this time ( a lil late, lol) and this person who goes by the gamertag of Mace Windu the, who i know from the island i live on, got me super addicted to halo 3.
I never played halo 2 because i wasnt alowed to play M games at the time, HA, so i never got to sample that online experience. But halo 3 had something trully epic about it... the campaign trully shined as bright as Sol and the multiplayer didnt seem like much at first. Then i subscribed to LIVE GOLD for a year, and OMGBBQ!!!!! I became a true halo fanboy. Now, instead of seeing me on gamespot like you used to, im usually looking for maps on bungie.net and overhyping halo reach... which i hope can BEAT the hype!
in between mass effect and halo add battlefield, i just didnt like COD because of ACTIVISION and their cheapness, so i strayed to a more realistic shooter.
so there you have it, i am officially a fanboy, but not the OMG COD SUCKS! kind. So, you can catch me over at Bungie.net under the name of IvoryCharlie
Good Hunting readers!
Well, sorry i was absent from posting for a while... finals are coming up next week and the halo reach beta came is just in the nick of time... so, seing as i cant post a review for halo reach, heres the review for the beta:
customization attempt: 5/10
game modes: 8/10
Overall, this beta is great, was great, and will always be remembered atleast by me. Individually, i hate how they mapped the armor abilities on the controller, it throws off what made halo 3 great; BUMPER JUMPER!!! Except for the controlls, the armor abilities are decent... armor lock is good, but you can get splattered while you engage it which leaves me with some WTF moments, like me going into armor lock in invasion and a tank splatters me so the elites win... invisibility is a fail, they should remove the map jammer, as it screws with the person invisible more than the person who is not, and for some reason, the reticule turns red and auto aims on the invisible target... not nice, jetpacks are perfect, and sprint is a tad too wierd, as if you have an energy sword, it has to "redraw" after sprinting, even though it is already unsheathed. customization=fail because everyone was expecting something more, like forza style emblems, custom paint jobs, rather than just shoulders and main, and i thought that the customization for armor would go way deeper, like visor color, how dirty or scratched helm is, etc. then again... this isnt fable 3... frame rate and graphics are nice, although, it does get a bit choppy when you try to reload or when 3 grenades go off simultaniously infront of you, or a tank shoots. so honestly, im looking forward to halo reach, but they have huge potential with the customization, they better not blow it.
I am long overdue for this, but i am ready and able to put me, aswell as 3 other skilled halo 3 players, in halo hall of fame. What am i talking about? i'm talking about Vidmaster Challenge, Annual!
April 1st is the date, add my gamertag, IvoryCharlie and post, "i'm in" on the comments if you want to try to beat the epic achievement and forever be remembered as a skilled FPS player. If we succede, i will post the video in my fileshare, and, with luck, we will all get recon. if not, well, we'll reconvene in a month or so and beat vidmaster challenges in ODST. Thank you to all of you who consider accepting this near undefeatable challenge, but i have faith we can do it. first 4 people to answer are invited for an all nighter/all dayer tryin to get this achievement.
hope to hear back from all of you,
PS. GT is IvoryCharlie, so either post a comment or send me a message on XBL for any questions.
PSS. Deja Vu is also an achievement i'm craving, If you prefer Deja Vu, say, I'm in for deja vu. majority rules, ok?
