BREAKING NEWS GUYS --- I GOT A DS LITE!
The above may not be groundbreaking for any of you, but it is for me as the last handheld system I had was almost bigger than the Wii system itself haha. You may think im trying to be funny ( I am), but its also true. My parents bought us a Game Gear system back in the day (maybe 1994?) which was the first colour handheld system, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. That thing was a beast...took up like 100 batteries and used them up faster than Lindsay Lohans career failed (zing). Anyway got it off a guy used, so cut out the store trying to over charge me as I got a Black DS lite w charger, and 3 game (GTA chinatown wars, Final Fantasy 3, and a Dementium) for $80. The guy even delivered it to me, so I was quite pleased. I then found some sick games for great prices used.... Zelda minish cap for GBA ($20), Zelda Phantom Hourglass ($25) and Mario and Luigis: Bowsers Inside Story ($20). So I have enough to tide me over for however many trips I go on in the next year or so at least!
Lots of other stuff going on in my life as well, just got back from a long weekend camping...I had been dying to go as it was my first camping trip of the year. Good times drinking with friends, boating and cliff jumping! Check out this quick video edit I made from the trip and posted on my youtube channel....Fun times in the Canadian Summer.
I have also been really binging on Zelda games...so not the worst addiction but still on a bit of a overload. I finally beat Twilight Princess, which ended up taking me about 3 years to complete! Well worth it in the end, epic ending to say the least. The reason it took me so long was because of the damn Wolf portions, and me losing interest (mostly due to confusion of where to go next in the biggest Zelda game world created thus far)
Im now replaying on of my all time favorites, Zelda the Windwaker for Gamecube. Love the art soo much, definetely one of the most epic journeys, even with a bit too much sailing.
All this Zelda has been great...some of the greatest adventures in Video Games IMO...if you have played a Zelda, or multiple what is your favorite? Or why do you think the game is so highly regarded, or overrated?
hope all is good with everyone, take care and hope to hear from your comments
Its not all about the newest games, and most popular games....this is something I have learned time and time again playing video games, especially since I got older.
When I started playing video games the gaming industry wasnt as mainstream, and the internet wasnt commonly used as it is today, so it wasnt as much of an issue. But it is these days...As a gamer I dont know how you wouldnt be aware of the fanboyism, and competitive nature of people on the internet. example: COD vs other shooter, and 360 vs PS3 on comment boards ahha....the list goes on.
The latest game that I completed really hammered this home, and that game was Bully Scholarship Edition for the xbox 360 (originaly released on the PS2 and xbox). It was original released in 2006, but re release with the new edition back in 2008 for the PC and 360. Its a Rockstar sandbox game, very similar to GTA, but from the perspective of a high school student. This makes things seem a lot more innocent, as there is no car, guns or hookers...but under the surface there is quite a bit of adult themes and jokes. Lots of funny missions to do, 7 different school subjects to pass and side missions. Quests you usually do for a certain group, and it affects your relationships with each (nerd, bullies, jocks)..nothing new there but really fun because the voice acting is really well done and reminds myself of days back in school when you really had to deal with similar types of people in real life. Of course theres bike races, go kart races, and side jobs as well like paper routes to make cash. blah blah blah, right?
The first couple hours playing it felt a bit awkward, but I figured that was because it was last gen and doesnt hold my hand like a lot of current games do. But i pushed through and very happy I did because once those credits rolled I was almost sad it was over...a great journey and game world rockstar created with ton and tons of hidden fun. I finished off 100% completion last night, with all achievements...so that goes to show how much I enjoyed it as I dont really 100% many games.
Final Review Score - 8.5/10

quick blog update, on vacay for a about a week in a half...so thought i would drop a line or two. If you work a job and have vacation weeks, you know these all too well...as you look forward to them all year...get them and its over before you know it haha
ANyways I will be missing Canada Day in Ottawa for the first time in years, so kinda sad i guess cause its always a wild time in the streets. Now on a real sad note I will miss be missing Prince William and Kate visiting Canada for the first time as a married couple....but really who cares about that besides girls and gossip mags/websites!
forgot to tell where i am going...ottawa to kingston for a couple days - then to Toronto for Canada day - then next day down to Niagra fall/st catharines for the weekend...then back up to kingston. Thats only the first week...
anyway going to see some family I havent seen in year, should be a lot o fun
leaving on a musical note, this song is going to be rocked all vacation long...and its to oldie, but a great video game....can you remember the name of the game? (easy trivia alert for nerds like myself)
