Unfortunately by me
But hey don't worry I'll tell you why:
Good ideas do not come about very often and for something to sell 170 million on release means that it's gotta be a continuation. It's not exactly like the guys at bungie and microsoft are stupid, if they know it makesthat muchthen hey why not continue the line and laugh it off whilst rubbing your head and saying: "oops I guess it's not a trilogy after all" aha aha aha
And thats exactly what they meant: "a trilogy" , dear friends and ppl I don't yet know in my friends list "A TRILOGY!!!"
It's "A TRILOGY!" , A TRILOGY ON WHAT????? ON HALO!!!!!
That's exactly the point! (I'm not going crazy) Halo is finished! It's destroyed, all the remaining rings are completely erased from this fictional world, the characters are dead including Mr you know what luckily all you gotta do is wait till after the credits instead of weeping! And so for all intents and purposes Halo is now completely finished, and thats where the trilogy comes in: "Halo 3 will be the end of what has been a trilogy"
And now heres the good part, for those who have completed the game via legendary mode (or just on youtube)will have no doubt seen the extra part after what most of us saw after heroic, MC has now gone into hibalation sleep after cortana says: "I'll send a beacon but it'll probably take them months to find us, even years" which in truth Mr you know what actually goes for 228 years of time frozen sleep which is when the screen goes black for a few seconds before the extra cutscene kicks in: they are now arriving on what appears as a planet.
And that my friends is exactly whats gonna happen in "whatever they call it for the fourth game" Halo is over, it's time to clean up the mess in some other related tale to Halo's. Which also proves what bungie very cheekily said: "halo is a trilogy and halo 3 will be the end of it"
Some of us achievement goers on our xbox 360's and we all know that there were terminals linked to a achievement called marathon man, this achievement let us in on some information about the forerunners and how a huge threat brought them to an end, that doesn't mean that they couldn't have spread and got away.
Now seeing that they went through a portal, what seemed like an instant could have been years, or maybe not. But we know that half of the ship carrying the MC got separated. Now knowing that he is drifting towards a planet, it could possible be a planet of the forerunners or a planet where marathon takes place.
Don't forget master chief goes into a cryo sleep at the end of the game meaning he went on to sleep for these 228 years, and he awakes: Halo is finished, the tagline "finish the fight" is appropriate, because you do, but it seems a new one is at hand regardless of what Master Chief finds.
Most importantly, his final words are "wake me when you need me..." now if they are drifting towards a planet, cortana is going to have to let him in on this, so this shows that he will be waked at some point and need to be shown where he has ended up.
And that my friends is exactly what went through the head of the developement team when they spoke out about after halo 3: "halo 3 has ended, it's time for another completely different but related sequel"
If nothing else hopefully I've sparked some interest, now we can only... hope
With less than 5 days and 12 hrs to go I'm gonna write something about it all.
If you are one of those people who are still sane after all this promotion, ads, bottle coverings, museum of histories, friend's rants then you must be one of those people who secretly humming the mjoinder's mix whilst walking to school. You could be one of those people who hide a plush doll of the famous Mr MC under your bed, heck you might even bring him out everyday and worship him. You must then also be one of those people who lay lazily with your head on the desk during class drawing heart shapes on your notebook and writing the words: Mr MC and ME, hey you might even go: "aaah *blush* sigh" and giggle..
But if you are not one of those people then you must be insane
But hey I won't hold it against you, nope not at all. A lot of people are going to the midnight release day but hey I'm not, no I will be safely laying on bed, sweating all over and humming the mjoinder's mix to sleep knowing I'll be getting it couriered to my doorstep first thing in the morning.
Theres just one thing whilst all this is going on: What if it all turns out to be a real sucky disappointment? What if the single player doesn't go out in a bang? What if Mr MC can't aim straight? Or worse what if Mr MC shows his real face?
But hey I do know one thing: That we'll all be getting our legendary ed, and that no guy or gal will be attending class on that OH YES! YES! YEEES!! day..
Mr MC and ME will see you all online.
Hiye first of all I would just like to say BEEEEEEEEEEEEEERSEEEEEEEEEEERK!!!!!!!!!! GUTS!!!!!!!!!! PUCK!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOT!!!!!!!
Now, I would like to list games I've played which gave me the most memorable moments, name urs or make comments regarding mine.
Splinter Cell: Double Agent Drifting down on the skyscraper part in Shanghai, snapping Moss' neck and saving the only girl in the game, don't know about you but I tried everything to save her incl blowing up the ship and killing hundreds
Resident Evil 4 Just about everything about this game is memorable, from the first guanado, finding Ashley, getting infected, the boss fights, the available upgrades, the tossing around don't know which item to chuck away when the cache is maxed. Unbelivable.
Metal Gear Solid 3 I didn't really know what was going on for the first ten hrs or so of gameplay till the ending, crying at around 11pm in the night and staying up still thinking about it.
Kingdom Hearts Everything about this game, the Opening Song OMG that hit me like a thunderbolt when I was drenched! I was small back then and easily attached to the characters, the world and the like like relationship between the two main characters, especially the ending, unlocking the secret movie, everything can be summed up in one big big size 8 word: Magical
Final Fantasy X I jogged around awhile before finally deciding to get this, hey I was short on money back then since I was only 13. What struck me was the story though, I couldn't sleep without playing this game, I used to miss eating times, stuffed the game underneath my pillow etc etc. All of this can also be summed up in one big big big size 8 word: Magical
Final Fantasy X-2 Just the song "Thousand Words," saw it at around 5am after couldn't go to sleep watching a vampire movie (accident), repeating it again, one of my fav.
God of War From the very start, the brutality of it, the not giving a damn about anything else feel, the boss fight at the beginning, jumping up and down at the excitement of the hydra, but whats really memorable is not the scale of it all but simply the puzzles, they are truly incredibly unbelievable.
God of War II Just two, first slamming the door repeatedly against the hero on the huge four horses stage (just before reaching the island of the sisters), hehehe hilarious that and second I felt really unique was the stage called entrance to ---- something, anyway it was the part where you had to jump from one pillar to the other, hell of an entrance.
Half-Life 2 From the very start I was astounded by the whole movie like feel,being really attached to all the characters you meetand as the game continued I couldn't stop shaking my head knowing that this was simply one of the best games ever. Ravenholm was equally unbelievable if not unnerving.
Halo Pretty much my first FPS, the storming of thebeach close to the start and dropping landing defending whats rest of the marines, but what was memorable was the assault rifle, burst fire oohhhhh love that spread! Luckily we are bringing it back in Halo 3!
Halo 2 Delta Halo, Arbiter's first lv, playing the game on legendary, simply one of my most played games. Kicking my friends again and again and again (this is primarily because all three were newbs and one of them can't even be considered a newb , but it felt good repeatedly getting three times their no. of kills and getting shouted atanyway hehe ).
Hitman: Blood Money The executions were really something else! Especially during the lv in the morgue I really felt then that the uniqueness of the game sprang out.
Oblivion Uh.. everything? lol
Doom 3 Bought the game, stayed on the shelf collecting dust for two yrs (scaaared) before finally playing and finishing it just the beginning of this year.
Dead or Alive 4 2 players!! Especially with my parents and gfconvinced to give it a try. Great fun, not so much when played alone
Call of Duty 2 Had to be taking a sniper's position, but there was this one time on live when I felt my level of exp (and it's very low) was the same as others there were 10 we keeped playing on different maps, sniper styled, on one map (the african town setting one) I found myself on a higher spot, killed one player then found out that others spawned right there!! It was an alleyway, needless to say I took five in ten sec before having to reload and getting the same treatment (they had to aim up).
Memorable games do not need to be high rated games, name yours andI'll see you all soon on Halo 3!
HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I just had my first semester exams like three weeks ago, but I needed to relax till now, went skiing and a wholeloada stuff, and I've got only one more week of break left (it's okay, I've already cried). I wish I had a year off or something (but then again, it'll prob just go like tht snap).
But anyways I'm back with a brand new computer! Yes I was supposed to get this asap and come back but I lied, I'm sorry. It's not actually a laptop as I originally planned and this was due to only one reason:
I mean the best I could get is like a 7950 from Alienware and thats like 5 grand!! When I could just simply get a desktop with all that jazz for a mere $25 (thats like 25 hundred and not the price for two movie tickets) and for that I even get free LOGITECH SPEAKERS!!! YUP 5.1 only I'm afraid but it's all good. But the only reason I got this instead of the laptop is because of one reason:
It's actually not white, it's black, anyways I got this and then I found out 2hrs 350mls later that the nineth series is coming out in november!!!!!! And that was like supposed to be twice as powerful as the powerful thing I got right now is supposed to be!!
I feel like I've just been cheated or something, but it's okay I can live (I can't actually) and the point was I got a lot of pc games to go with it!! All the latest and some old ones to finally bring my total games to a count of 162. Okay enough on with the main point of the blog:

Oh yeah and also add me on xbox live toooooooooooo please, I would like to game with a lotta yous (you know who you are!).
Marka NZ (Gamercard and PS3 account opposite)
This was a crazy thing actually. I never knew about MGC Mygamercard.net (if you didn't too I'm glad).Well actually I did but I only checked once when I first bought the white box ageeeeeeeeeeeees ago, anywaysI logged on two days ago, updated my gamerscore from 0 to 30310 and found out that I'm actually currently writing ranked 15 in the country!!!!!!!! And thats like 5500 something around the world. WHOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Oh and I had a weird az dream last week, I dreamt I found these two huge marshmallows, I was real happy, ate em all and then I woke up and found that my two pillows were gone.
Anyone had the same dream?
Alriiiiiiiiiiiiighie I'm here for a quick update. I was gonna do this a couple weeks ago but lost track.
I'm okay, my gf's okay, we finally started university this year, I'm doing a bachelor of commerce and science conjoint, shes doing med. The uni's the best one in the whole country and ranked 45-55 annually so that was good (parents would hv killed me if i didn't get in). We are all doing great!
Bought a Wiiiiiiiiiii on release, that was extremely suckie (and I don't mean it tht way).
Waiting for the shiny shiny black coated, silver box called a PS3 to come out still.. (soon)
AND NOW THE REAL REASON OF THE BLOG:
Are you serious? (words have nothing to do with the pic btw )
I got this on release (22nd of Feb), crawled to the nearest EB store, played it and after 50 mins I'm like him:
Simon: Are you serious?
Simon: Do you want to know what I really think? ahaahaahaahaaha
Simon: You sound like one of those wild donkeys out of a wood
Simon: I'm actually not sure what a wild donkey sound like, but you keep going like this:
Simon: Yeah like that
The game wasn't good ay, I mean compared to it's predecessors.
Ohhhhhhhhhh hawt moogles (mouth waters)
Oh yeah I got engaged.
How is everybody? Sorry exams coming up (most important of my life) so I don't have time to go around checking everybody's blogs.
Give me a brief update of yourselves okay?
Oh yeah got xbox live, show u'al the card next blog (after the exams and partying, last exam 29th calculus)
GOW 9.6? WoW
Anyway this month's blog! (oh yeah to make it quick, exams for upcoming university entrance in two weeks, yup now don't mention it to me again or I'll get real and )
First off! Anime recommendations!! These are the best I've read in the past month:
This guy is THE MAN!! seriously this series is outrageously funny, of course it's all unreal since the guy hits just about everything, enjoying life at all comers
He even goes around all day introducing himself: Hi My name is Onizuka, 22 years old, still a V (ya know), but there is something pulling him since hes so tough, use to come from a bike gang you see.. (hes outta this world)
Watch it if you can, I'm getting the series on DVD asa I can.
Nothing like shouting GTO out loud!!!
Oh yeah watchers gotta be over 15 though cause of you know what..
As said a few months ago, this series IS A++++++++++!!
It is a dark anime though but there are hope and blah blah blah ya know all that light talk and stuff.
You might not recognize this series, the names Kazan, absolutely awesome stuff, again it's got a real sad mood to it but it is awe inspiring (btw in case you were thinking, the girl is just jumping thats all okay)
Maison Ikkoku really really old but nevertheless so real life like!! And highly addicting, OH YEAH
I don't know how famous this is, but it is the original 2000 page manga epic and it ROCKS! So hard to tear away, the action is suspense and real, you can actually feel yourself in the manga like a movie!
I also had a brief flirt with this, yeah it's pretty famous now but I did Vol: 1, 4 and 5 and it's alright.. lets just leave it at that (no one throw bricks at me)
That's it for anime recommendations, I've been doing too much of these things (WHAT?? JUST BEFORE THE EXAMS??? SHUT UP!!!!!)
Gaming recommendations now:
First off I finished this:
Last night, in just over 28 hours, so not as long as I thought and I managed to clock half the worlds with mickey signs on em and I was lv52, what can I say? The game is good but somehow I felt the first one more attractive
Good, but not great, I definitely liked Hitman: Blood Money better but this is also probably because this game was waaaaay too short.
What really sparked me was this game, a 5.9 on gs and not much ppl trying it out (even I only give it a 7.7)
N3 or Ninety Nine Nights on the 360, the scores might be low but it is really awesome, probably because the female cast is just as awesome but yeah.. really good game, try it out if you can. It's long as well
One last one of the PSP:
If you have a PSP then you gotta get this game, it IS OFF THE ROOF! I MEAN CHAIN!!
Because we all know that Tekken is the best fighting game out there, street fighter was the first but it never adapted to 3D
Now for something depressing:
The spot light for XII is this as said by Mr Kasavin himself:
This long-awaited chapter in one of the world's most popular role-playing series features an inspired look, boldly redesigned strategic combat, and a long, engaging story.
X again by Mr Kasavin himself:
If you've been waiting for the definitive role-playing game for the PlayStation 2, here it is.
The review done by XII was 2 pages!!! 2 PAGES FOR A 60 HR GAME!!! X was 5!!!! And the video review was a special 10 mins one I guess X is just de best few games come close to the good story. Oh well..
I am so EAGER FOR THIS MOVIE TO COME OUT!!:
I love it when he goes:
Stupid guy : Be afraid! Sparta will burn to the ground.
Stupid guy take two: This is blasphemy, it's madness!
King Leonidas: Madness?
THIS IS SPARTA!!
And when he says:
SPARTANS! TONIGHT, WE DINE IN HELL!!
Awesome stuff, oh yeah I drew up a shopping list of games that I'm gonna go and get on the 8th of Dec (straight after the exams and 2 months break!! oh YAY!! Also the next day of Wii Launch)
- Gears of you know what
- Xtreme 2
- Dirge of Cerberus
- 40K Dark Crusade
- Mark of Chaos
- Medieval 2
- GTO Boxed Set
And the best of em all is THE
Since the PS3 is late again for the launch till next year, this will gotta do, I look forward to Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, OOT is still by far the highest rating done by me so this should be good.
A friend of mine finally got himself a 360, of all the ppl I know who have one is 3!! THREE!!!! TROIS!!! And thats including me!! OMOgosh so I better get the Wii or what I'm I gonna do?
Ending it with a song recommendation: Gomenasai (I'm sorry) by TATU
P.S newborn kittens are such a nuisance I've recently just gotten 4 new ones and they can't stop yapping, GOSH! Anyone know whats wrong?
Till next time:
Thinking about you..
Take d date u born,
+month u born,
+last 2 digit of d year u born,
Almost done with KH2, lv41 and ooooooo I've gotten 3000gamerpoints for the 360!! YAY!!
P.S Nxt blog will contain me trying to find and come up with all sorts of curses about how the PS3 won't be released here till next yr.
(smiling right now is just trying to stop myself from jumping)
Anyway I had to stay on the pc all day due to this stupid economics assignment anyway really really hungry so I decided to give this a try!
Anyway I've only tried this once before but I guess it'll be good for a snack now
So I uh guess I'll be giving you a detailed info of da taste of this thingie
I'm gonna say anything that pops up so don't mind me if I say anything weird alrite?
So umm it's coated in this plastic thingie wrap, and uh, unwrapping..
careful not to cut your fingers
nice, alright, it's square in shape, it's uh.. got something written on top of it, some symbol like thing but I'll give it a tiny bite now
it's hard to uhh describe
it's sort of thick like, is this flour? no idea taste like wet bread
it's kinda thick inside, it's uh dark redish brownish thing and it's coated by this brown outside peel, it tastes kinda good actually
and in the inside is this yellow uh... thing
wht is this?
it's kinda hard and thick
wait another bite
uhh..no idea wht this inside thing is, any clues?
the darkish redish thing is kinda stickie like, gets in da mouth and sticks ewwwwwwww
I'll be fine, I'll just finish whts left of this since it's actually pretty good mmmmmmm
KH2 15 hrs in and up to first chapter of Pride Lands, haven't gotten there yet, very good but sorta easy, button mashy and some of the original concept like say how you seal a world and you find a secret object to do it? In KH2 you sorta just enter the same cutscene and theres nothing special or hiding about it if y'know wht I mean.
And then theres the story, it kinda sucks! I mean the starting was memorable and sad but why IN THE WORLD ARE THE HEARTLESS FREE AGAIN? I mean all the baddie guys are dead in the first game, especially like Manificient, how long did we take to beat her? Why is she back again? Sorta makes you feel like everything you did in the first game was all useless and WHY ARE WE STILL SEALING WORLDS WE DID IN THE FIRST GAME?
Anyway.. really sticking to my teeth this thing
P.S prisons over here have full LCD tvs for the prisoners and whats even funnier is that there are R18 DVDs for all prisoners to view

P.S My Economics teacher goes to nightclubs..IT'S TRUE!! I'VE SEEN HIM THERE!!

Hitman: Blood Money
May not be the best 360 game I've played so far, but definitely the most entertaining. 8.9/10 from me
I recommend everyone to get it, really good stuff, horribly entertaining if not a little sad, but who cares about the sad part? Need to get to the elevator without anyone seeing you? Ooo theres a guy there, can't let him see me, push him into the water, ooo theres another one there! Shove him down too
This is what NeonNinja wrote on his last blog, I decided to put it here to get more ppl motivated (I copied it straight from you man, hope you don't mind k ^_^ )
It's time to save Gamespot people and I need everyone to help me with this.
Sentinelrv the leader of The Headcrab Union has recieved a request from Greg Kasavin to help improve the union system that is slowly dieing. I need everyone regardless of whether they go to any unions or not to support this because this may be our one chance to help make Gamespot a better place.
Go to this thread to support it.
This is a top priority mission for everyone, from this point on all of you are being promoted to the rank of ninja, go and make Neon and the rest of Gamespot proud by leaving your comments and feedback on the proposed improvements.
I don't if all of this can be pulled off or not, but it's more than worth a shot. No matter what happens remember one thing, at least for the time being you are all worthy of being ninja.
P.S My Physics Teacher is cheating on his wife
Friend gave it to me, indicating real in game shot of Halo 3, fake man. But seriously can't wait for this one.
Steps outta the fog and everybody goes wild
Yes, yes we know you are hot
I was playing Halo 2 again, first time on my HDTV though and I must say the graphics are almost the same as the above, get one if possible, worth your money.
I went to the store and the local eb manager tells me that this could very well be the next Halo 3 till it eventually comes out of course.
Excited as well of course, but worth the hype? I believe so.
Sounds like a hawt game
P.S my cats pregnant
have a nice day
Well, almost, 2 to go but I decided to make an early blog about it cause I might not have time later
Anyway I decided that now is an appropriate time to tell everyone who do not know yet what my username represent
I'll break it down for ya in pics k? (cause we all love pics, you me, nous, vous )
Now for arbiter..
There were some things, not even the higher arcs understood (or was it understand??? )
I was soooo impressed by his performance next to Mr MC that I added him to my name
And the pic I'm drawing is almost finished! It's currently ready for it's 5th layer and the drawing is the pic of Sora above ^^^ ^_^
Been busy for over a week but I'll get some time down today to be on gs
Oh yeah KH2's coming out on the 29th of September here yippie and to prepare for this I decided to play KH all over again, I haven't done so over a year and a half, popped it into my ps2 and found out that I could start a new game, it simply goes black so I had to get another, luckily the price isn't 110 like last time since it's gone platinum 35 here.
Have a nice weekend
