All About paulokoenigkam
After 3 months without internet, I solved my problems with the company, and got it back, last week, yaaay.
But just now my xbox got the error 74. AW SCREW IT! In october 2008 it got RROD, and now this? I need to hurt someone, badly!
For those that don't know what OnLive is supposed to be...
OK, it seems fun, and if it works properly, it will completly change gaming as we know it. But this gen already strikes fear into my heart. Where I live, there's no good internet technology, and gaming is still very overlooked. (It's still seen as a kid's toy for most people, not to mention the absurd price consoles and games have around here).
Sure, OnLive is said to be cheap and all, and I'm sure I could buy it for me (note that an Xbox 360 where I live costs around 800 dollars, a game costs 100, and minimum wage is around 2 dollars an hour). But the main problem is that it's all online, and my internet conection is awful, I can barely play on xbox live. (250 KBps, 1 MBps here is a rich people thing).
I'm scared... I was afraid I wouldn't be able to catch up this gaming gen, and I did, very late but I did. But now... I'm even more scared of the next one.
Sure we still have to wait and see how this will play, if developers will help it, if gamers will aprove it, if it will work properly... We have many things yet to see.
However, I'm not the only person scared, there are many people that will probably suffer much more then I am right now. Think of all the game stores, how will they keep their business if it will work online?
It's a step up for technology, but I am very afraid of this step...If it works, it'll be great for most gamers, and will completly suck for others...
Game developers will probably be pretty happy with the huge decline in piracy this will bring though.
But me... I don't know what to think, I'm just afraid... *hugs xbox 360*
Edited to add on a link for those who don't know what OnLive is.
This is something I suggest every gamer should do.
In this generation, I'm mostly playing shooter games. It doesn't matter how great Gears of War, Halo, Call of Duty, and other games are, even though I can play them over and over, sometimes you just want to play something different. I'm not saying different like getting Dark Sector, Army of Two, or other shooter games, mostly because even though they are different, they are shooters at their core.
What you should do, is create a little completly different game genre list for the days when you get bored. Who hasn't felt the need to play something but when looked around the games you have, you didn't feel like playing any of those?
Check my gamertag or my game collection (here in gamespot, it's updated) to see how many shooters I'm playing lately, and how some of the games I have are completly different.
Examples of different games that I play when I'm bored: Ace Combat 6, Burnout Paradise, Geometry Wars, Castle Crashers, Fallout 3...
It's always good to leave the routine, I always had this pile, and always kep my interest in videogames, the only difference is what was my main game genre in each generation.
PSone -> RPGs was my main pile
PS2 -> Action Adventure
Xbox 360 -> Shooters
Get out of your traditional games once in a while, in order to broaden your horizons, keep things interesting, and keep the flame of gaming burning inside your heart.
