I've hit 50!

A couple of random things:

1. PS3 - It's been a month already since I got the Slim version and I've been putting some serious hours in it. I've finished the single campaign of GTA 4. Somehow, I made all the wrong choices in the game. (SPOILER: I left the traitor alive, went to deal with Dimitri and got my cousin killed -_-, I even killed Francis : END SPOILER). I've tried a bunch of demo's including the Uncharted 2 multiplayer Beta. The game should arrive some time next week and I'm very excited.

2. Anime - Last summer I started watching the Naruto anime. When I finally caught up with the Shipudden Series, I found out that there's also a manga that is actually way ahead in the storyline. I just couldn't contain my curioisty and spoiled my way through the story. Don't worry peeps, I won't spoil a thing (except for my new avatar, sue me). One thing's for sure, it will get very interesting.

3. Gamespot - I rarely blog about levels since they don't mean a thing to me, but today I hit level 50. Such a nice number :P. The next time I blog about levels might probably be the infamous lv 63.

That's all for now. If you want to add me on PSN, send me a request with your GS so I know who you are.

Laters:D!

Got a PS3 slim + pics

After 2 ½ weeks of waiting (Oversea shipping), my PS3 has finally arrived.

Here are some pics of the PS3 and the blu-ray remote.

The machine itself is way prettier than shown on the videos. Like any anxious gamer, I've skipped the instruction booklet or any reading what so ever and jumped straight into the game. The first thing I really had to do was to play GTA 4. 1 More day of waiting and I would've started playing the game with my mind :P. Also, for now, I'm going to buy Need For Speed: Shift, Call of Duty: MW2 and Gran Turismo 5.

I've also set up a PSN account and tried the GTA4 online multiplayer. Reckless shooting FTW (don't try this at home). Is there a limit to the amount of friends?

I'm still trying to get used to all the features but the most useful one is definitely the built-in Wi-Fi since the PS3 is located in the living room and the router is located in my room.

Overall, I'm very impressed with the system. Great price for the amount of features: Free Online, Built-in Wi-fi, Rechargeable remotes and more. Definitely recommended.

Later peeps! Send me a request!

September is gonna be an expensive month and a PS3 ....

.............game -_- .

Sony dropping the price to $300 was the tipping point for me to buy a PS3 Slim (yay). I've bought one from amazon together with a blu-ray remote and GTA 4, but only the game has arrived. So now I'm staring at the game case without the console to play it on. Just great.

But enough sulking. September is going to be an awesome month but hella expensive (read above paragraph if you missed it). These are the games I'm looking forward to and that I'll probably buy:

. . . . . . . . . . . . .

Scribblenauts (DS) . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Wii)

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's inside story (DS) . . . . . Need for Speed: Shift (PS3)

So that makes 4 games (still deciding about Mario&Luigi) and a new console in 1 month O_o. Add those to my July DS bonanza and I'm set for the next 4 month of gaming goodness. No wait, make that 5 games, I forgot about Call of Duty: MW2 in November.

My first review: The World Ends With You (DS)

Hey everyone!

This is the first time I've written a highly detailed review about one of the many games that I've played in my lifetime. I feel so proud:P. Check it out here. I'm always looking for feedback. Simply put. This game is one step short of perfect. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in Action-RPG games.

Next up! Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor.

VOTE for Samus Aran for all time greatest Heroine!!

This is IT! The ultimate showdown of hero's is about to start! And I'll be rooting for none other than the ultimate Bounty Hunter, Samus Aran (and you should too)!

Here's an image kit that I've made to promote her around the forums. Don't let me down soldiers.

Additional note: She can kick Master Chief's ass any day of the week.

Revisiting Galaxies: Daredevil runs

First thing's first: WOOT!!! PS3 price drop!!! After month's of waiting, Sony (finally) decided to drop the price of their console and also introduce a new slimmer model. Now I just have to wait for a Gran Turismo 5 release date and I'm a happy gamer again. Well, not just as happy when I got my first gameboy, but close lol.

Anyways, I've recorded some of my favorite stages in Super Mario Galaxy earlier this summer but I never got the time to upload them. Daredevil runs are my favorites. Basically, you have to get through the whole stage without taking a single hit.

Hmm, maybe I should talk to Jody for a new video emblem, who knows xD.

Enjoy!

DS First impressions: TWEWY and Contra 4

In addition to all the games that I mentioned in my previous blog, I also got hold of LOZ: Phantom Hourglass, Children of Mana, Diddy Kong Racing DS and Dragon quest 4. Yup, no GTA: CW :P.

So the first game I popped in my DS was The World Ends With You and "awesome" doesn't even begin to describe this action-RPG. It was kinda confusing at first, story-wise, but as soon as you get some roaming freedom, the game is a breeze. Great story, design, presentation, easy to control and a kick-ass soundtrack. If you're still able to get this game, buy it.

Then I tried Contra 4...................I almost threw my DS on the ground. This is the only game(s) that really tests my patience. It doesn't get more hardcore than this. This game is hard (but great nonetheless). Shoot or die. Seriously:P.

Ds games madness

One of the local stores was closing down for unknown reasons and it was having a sale. I managed to get a lot of brand new DS games for about $3 to $5 each. Basically, they were almost giving them away O_O.

The list includes:

Puzzle quest

Contra 4

Meteos

Yu-gi-oh WC: 2008 + 2009

The world ends with you

Jump ultimate stars

Shin Megami Tensei

Advance wars Dual stike

Animal Crossing: WW

Big brain Academy

Bleach: Blades of faith

Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow

Advance wars Days of Ruin

Piccross DS

Chrono Trigger

I think I'm going back for more :3. I think I saw Grand Theft Auto: CW lying around.

Laters!

So a friend of mine told me I should blog more...xD.

I really want to, but I'm so lazy in the summer:P.

I do have some interesting updates as to what games I'm looking forward to for the next year and some other things.

First thing's first. After a lot of persuasion from my friends, I started watching anime again. They recommended Naruto and Bleach. The only animes that I remember watching when I was younger were Dragon Ball Z and Samurai X. But after 2 episodes, this anime got me hooked, seriously. I went through the first 140 episodes in like 2 week's time, no skipping :P.

It's been a very quiet half-year in terms of buying new games, but that's definitely going to change. I'm going to need one game: Gran Turismo 5. I haven't touched a GT game since GT2 but I do remember that it was one hell of a great game. Other games I'm looking forward to are Need for Speed: Shift and COD: Modern Warfare 2. Since all these games will be coming later this year, I'll probably get a PS3 around that time. Who knows? Maybe we'll get that price drop or a new bundle after all.
