Sorry I haven't blogged for a while! (No I'm not dead)

Salutations my gaming homies!

I know I haven't blogged since August but I'll make it up to you for making an insanely long blog about everything that has happened to me since! Well I have just been in Asheville, North Carolina. My grandmother who likes to criticize everything under the sun except her beloved homeland of England is in town and came with. We went to the Biltmore Estate which is 8000 square acres and the house itself is apparently largest in America. Here are a few pics to give you a good idea of what it's like...

The house has a lot of history most of which is dull. Owned by the richest man in America, opened to the public in 1930. That's all you really need to know. On the second day my grandmother forced us all to watch 'The Duchess'. Not bad. There are multiple sex scenes and I like historical movies. But if you can't stand 1700's flowery English speech then give it up.

So I haven't blogged for a while but that's because I've been busy getting past the thick swamp that is Savannah Country Day Middle School. I am still getting grades in the 90's and I even let the unthinkable thought pass through my head. I could make High Honor Role! Then I realized I probably failed Orchestra. Advice to you all: Never play the violin. Not only is it a physical impossibility to play those wretched Symphonies, but most Strings teachers are usually well, strange. Especially mine. So I'm probably not going to make High Honor Role. Just regular Honor Role. Although you don't read my blogs to hear about my personal life, I don't care. So excuse me while I spew out the happenings of my non-gaming life. First off, I'm not that quiet nerd boy sitting with Dungeon Masters! Now I'm a (only!) semi-nerd sitting at a popular table. That's right. I made the plunge. Although I'm not about to switch from cross country to football, at least I feel somewhat accepted. Here's how I did it:

1st Week: Move to a table with semi-popular people. Talk a lot. Everyday, all the people at the cool table move to another table randomly. When they do, leave not to early but not too late. Move too early and maybe not everyone will move, leaving you stranded with one or two people. Move too late, you look awkward.

2nd Week: Keep slowly building your confidence by sitting with the same people for a week at a time. Then move on to the next level the next week.

4th or 5th Week: You've probably graduated to the highest level by now. Congratulations! (Note: This worked for me. Maybe not you.)

So, my homeroom is alright although it is frustrating that I've got a math teacher for my advisor three years in a row. We are the dolphin riders! No, I didn't vote for that particular name. One thing constantly confuses me though. Although the school is insanely expensive, costing $15,000 dollars a year, it seems to me that in 6th grade everyone was restrained to the same level. For instance, in English we all read the same brain-dead books. It's strange that now, in 7th grade we're reading Shakespeare. A huge jump. Hopefully, during that painful transition between 8th grade and High School, we'll lose the jerks and idiots. I'm crossing my fingers.

Now back to my gaming life. I've played Call of Duty 3, Call of Duty 4, Oblivion, and Battlefield: Bad Company and Civilization Revolution all on my beautiful ps3. And I've played massive amounts of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for the PC. I downloaded it (legally!) from Direct2Drive. Words cannot describe how da*n fun this thing is. Play it. There is so much stuff to do. So many ways to kill off civilians. Do yourself a favor and play some gta, any gta from gta III to gta IV. You will have fun. Also, Cod 4 is great to. There were so many moments in it when I stared blankly at the screen with amazement at what had just happened. Cod 3 was great to- I didn't notice too many framerate drops. Battlefield Bad Company is amazing to although I prefer Cod 4.

On another note, I turn 13 today! Precisely 1 hour and 52 minutes ago actually. I got GRAW 2 for the ps3 which is pretty sweet. And a $90 gift card for Best Buy. I'll have fun with that. I'll get a $60 dollar game but what should I get? Battlefield Bad Company, Little Big Planet, Fallout 3, Call of Duty 4 or Far Cry 2? I'll spend the remaining $30 on Civilization Colonization of Call of Duty 4.

Later guys.

This is messed up...

Please read my blog before this one. I kept on trying to submit it and every time I did, it gave me an error message telling me my blog hasn't been posted. When I checked my profile, I did have my new blog. But since I kept on clicking 'submit' in frustration I now have six of the same blog. But please note all of them have different titles. That's because every time I tried to submit I was told 'a posting with that same name already exists'. So let me tell you I didn't mean to have six blogs. Least user-friendliness in the world...

Into the Next-Generation charged the 500

Hey guys

So, yes I have turned my back on the cold wasteland known as PC gaming and gone towards that lovely heavenly island also known as Console gaming. Of course I'm still going to play a lot of upcoming PC games like Empire Total War but for games like Far Cry 2, I'll be playing it on my shiny ps3. People have been saying PC gaming is dead or dying for quite a while so I wanted to say I a few reasons why it's dead and why I've left it.

1. Piracy. Recently Assassins Creed for the PC sold 40000 in America. The pirated version in America was downloaded 700000 times. That's just an example of how much PC games are pirated. That means studios with pirated games make less money and so therefore, some have to close down. Fewer studios mean fewer games.

2. Economy. In case you haven't noticed our country is in the middle of a recession. People don't have buckets of money and credit to spend like they did before. We can't live our extravagant lives any more. We need to cut back on un-necessary expenses. If you get a gaming rig, in about one or two years it'll be obsolete. Meanwhile, consoles are cheaper and last longer. Yes, console games are expensive but games that came out a year ago are about $30. Take The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for example. Oblivion sells for a mere $30 and provides you with over 200 hours of epic RPG action! Any average American with a brain knows that buying a console saves money.

3. Games. Yeah Total War is pretty popular internationally. In America? Not so much. I know Total War is a fantastic series but, it doesn't appeal to the public. Console games like Halo, Guitar Hero and Rock band sell millions. The sorts of games you get on a PC generally aren't appealing to American consumers.

So there you have it. Why PC gaming is dead in America. PC gaming is still popular in the UK and Asia though. But piracy rates? Europe's piracy rate is 90% and in Asia it's apparently 'off the charts'. Over 100% perhaps?

I wrote that message up there so bangell99, PC gamings most loyal zealot and my friend, won't send me hate-mail. I doubt it though. I can already see his comments calling me 'traitor' or 'scum' or perhaps something fouler.

Anyway, so far I love my ps3. I got the PSN booted up. My PSNID is 'ilikegamesyo1'. I've played some Civilization Revolution, Grid and Battlefield Bad Company on it. Civilization Revolution is surprisingly good and meets the sky-high expectations set by its superb PC predecessors. (Civilization is a historic turn-based strategy. VERY addicting- seriously) Grid is a deep racing game although I've lost all my races since its so painfully hard. Yeah but so far I'm impressed with the ps3's features.

And as for school I'm actually having a good time. But my science teacher is a slow-talking Southern-belle who is so dry and dusty; she can send anyone into a coma if she talks for too long. Her lessons feel twice as long as they should. Anyway, all my other teachers are all right. So far I've failed one quiz, got 90%, 80% and 96% on my others. Not bad I guess. Well later guys....

Woohoo! I survived first day! Plus some other random stuff

Yeah! I survived the first two days! And I'm almost enjoying myself!:) Well sort of.

Yesterday was first day of school where you spend the whole day listening to teachers saying stuff about their subject and telling you how much you're going to enjoy the year. Yeah right.

But this year had a few exceptions. Our French teacher didn't give us as much of that as the other teachers did which was great and she gave us some French bread with Nutella which was pretty good stuff. And then there was our history teacher, John Kwasny who we can call 'Kwasny' which is pretty cool. What's more cool is that he's probably the most relaxed teacher in the school. You can come late, leave without permission for the bathroom,chew gum (only if you give everyone else a peice) and on top of that, if you miss a quiz you don't have to take it. We don't even have to take notes-you just have to do a good job of pretending he says! But everybody who took his course tells us that he'll give you some difficult tests so I better take at least a few of those wretched notes. On the first day, he just talked to us about all sorts of random junk. And then the high schoolers came in. Apparently when you're in high school you can go to him and chat and when you're late, he'll give you a late note to excuse you. To give you an example, every fifteen minutes a few high schoolers come in for about 5 minutes each. Some come in to talk to him while others cause mayhem and some annoying few talk loudly among themselves in the back of the room. And no homework from him for the next two weeks! He's not giving us a test until December! I think I've died and gone to heaven...then I realise that he's just one teacher. All the others are generically dull teachers who gave me work to do on the first day :cry:.

Anyway there's something else that's been on my mind for a while. My PC's useless! It won't play anything new! But it was cutting edge when I got it which is a pain in the a** right now. So instead of getting a new PC which will be obsolete within two months I'm getting a console. I'm thinking ps3 mainly because Wii's have horrible graphics and a 360 will probably explode on me. You'd think that a PC that looked as sleek as this...

...would be able to do just about anything but it dosen't do any game from late 2007-2008. So I'll blow some of my cash on a ps3 instead of a new PC and be done with it. My dad's office has a really super-computer which I'm allowed to use which guzzles games like Crysis so I'll use that for games like Empire: Total War which I really want to play. I'm not giving up on PC gaming- I'm just going to play next-gen games on next-gen consoles. I'll still be doing a lot of strategy gaming still on my PC.

Also, there are loads of games coming out soon but I just can't buy all of them. Far Cry 2, Infamous,Cod WaW, Spore, Gears 2, Empire Total War and more. What do you suppose are the best games for the ps3 or PC coming out in the next six months? I want to buy all of them but I should exercise at least some restraint and not waste all my cash. Just wondered if you could tell me. I've bored you enough :lol:.....

Later guys 8)

Noooooooo!

Today is the last day of summer! Last day of freedom!:cry:

My school bag is about to burst-and I haven't even put all my stuff in it! Time for tests,exams,failures,teachers,school lunch,binders,books,homework and loads of other miscellaneous education crap that I hate! On the bright side this year I won't be playing WoW :P At least I get to go back to cross country. I'm trying to get all-year honor role this year I was so close to getting it last year.Yes, that means less gaming time :lol:

Later guys :D
