Calling all Friends: Profile Overhaul

To everyone out there, I just added an "About me" section on my profile so everyone knows me better. I'm planning on being very active here this summer so I figure everyone who tracks me sould know a lot more about me than I've put out in the past. So hopefully it helps!

So last night there was a Luau on my campus for the entire student body. A bunch of my friends and myself decided to get rather drunk and play volleyball out there. It was one hell of a funny s**tshow for everyone who watched. After that we just hung until two in the morning outside. It was such a great night.

Shadowrun box art for Xbox360

Next, my long overdue review for Shadowrun is finally up. If anyone ever played the game or is interested in reading, head on over and give it a look through.

Lastly @ vulpix, Yeah i've been waiting for info like that for such a long time.I absolutely can't wait for it! GW2 is gonna be so awesome!!!

Guild Wars 2!

I caught all of the recent GW2 preview info and am more excited now than ever for the game!

Those are the links to the new info for anyone who wishes to see it. I'm personally looking forward to part 2 of the combat article. (3rd link)

Also Vulpix, I thought about getting one at first but I concluded that I just want them too dam much! I already have Diamond and Platinum as well.

Still chugging along...

I want the new pokemon game and i'm pissed that I haven't been able to get it yet due to the overload of work.

Heart Gold and Soul Silver in Japanese

I'm debating getting a copy of each just because I really want them. It's driving me crazy..

I've been playing Rome: Total War and really enjoying it. The review for it will be up after next week due to finals, along with the long overdue review of Shadowrun.

Lastly, thanks to Vulpix as always for following!

Xbox 360 hiatus

So due to my lack of having an Xbox 360 here at college anymore, I won't be playing it for a month and a half. I did pick up Rome: Total War from steam so that should hold me over for a while. Review will be up in the coming weeks, as well as a review for Shadowrun, a game I've been wanting to review for a long time. Again, shout out to vulpix for keeping up with me. My review for Modern Warfare 2 explains my feelings on the game, i'm not really a huge fan of it. If you'd like me to explain it more, let me know.

Halo 3 and my most anticipated game

So I have no idea why but I'm playing Halo 3 again. Again, no idea why I got the urge to play it again.

So the next game I'm really anticipating and have been for years now is Guild Wars 2.

Guild Wars 2

I've been playing Guild Wars for quite a long time now and I personally feel it's the best MMO out there right now. I'd reccomend anyone interested in MMOs to give Guild Wars a try and look into GW2. Also, shout out to vulpix for keeping up with me.

Quick update

I picked up Bayonetta a while backbut never got around to reviewing it due to the work overload here. I'll have a review up for it within the next few days!

2009 games recap + 2010 previews!

When I look back at 2009, there are some games that really stand out to me. I would like to quickly mention them here:

Uncharted 2 Box Art

Uncharted 2, at first, I wasn't expecting much from it. As I got into it, it offered a perfect blend of humor in it's story, and intense cooperative gameplay. This game is an adrenaline rush and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a very fun game.

Super Mario Bros. Wii Box Art

While we are on cooperative games, I'd like to mention the new Super Mario Bros. This game offers an atmosphere that everyone in the family can enjoy. It is a great remake with some of the better boss fights I've seen in games lately. It's definitely worth a play.

Left 4 Dead 2 Box Art

Cooperative gameplay this past year sees it's prime in Left 4 Dead 2. This game builds on its predecessor, making it an even more fun experience for you and your friends. Shooter fans should definitely add this game to their library. (see review for more details)

Borderlands Box Art

Ahh what more can I say about Borderlands that I haven't already praised in my review. One of my favorite games this year. Borderlands masterfully combines RPG and FPS elements into an overall addicting and fun game. I'd recommend this game to all fans of both genres.

Demon's Souls Box Art

Of all the games this year, the one that had stood out the most is definitely Demon's Souls. Words cannot express how exceptional this game is, but i'll give it a shot anyway. Demon's Souls masters grahpic design, voice acting, and perfect online play for a gaming mechanics system like no other. This RPG's innovation in the way it handles it's online play sends a chill down my back. This game isdefinitely Game of the Year in my books.

Halo Wars Box Art

Not many people like Halo Wars, which is understandable. PC RTS fans denounce this game as part of the genre because they feel it is too simple. The fact that it is simple is the reason why I like it.It's a different kind of RTS, as I had stated in my review. It is a solid, fun game that offers a new take on the genre, one that switches the focus off of economy management and puts it on intense combat. A game I would reccomend to people just starting to dab into the RTS genre.

Red Faction: Guerilla Box Art

Red Faction: Guerilla, although repetitive, did offer something unique that I absolutely loved: you can destroy EVERYTHING! This game definately appeals to those with a hunger for destruction. Also, the multiplayer was pretty fun fo rthis game. It had quite a bit of fun modes and interesting items to use.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Box Art

Now for me, Modern Warfare 2 didn't do much, however, there was one thing that I did enjoy. Customizing your weapons and gear is a great way to spice up the game but there is an extent to where this becomes overpowered. This game also had one of the best Single Player stories I've seen in a recent shooter. It was very intense and fun to play through.

Hlo Reach Wallpaper

In 2010, one of my most anticipated games has to be Halo: Reach.It plays through the events before Halo: Combat Evolved. Specifically, it follows the path of the Spartan team that fought on Reach, as seen in the novel Halo: The Fall of Reach. this is one game I can't wait to get my hands on.

Mass Effect 2 Box Art

A game that has been growing on me to the point where I am sure I will add it to my collection at some point is Mass Effect 2.Thank you everyone who has offered their opinions, especially Heidious heid.

Guild Wars 2 Wallpaper

It may not exactly be a 2010 release, but it is currently the game I am most anticipating. Guild Wars had such an impact on me that I have been drooling over myself in anticipation of this game.Hopefully it comes out soon...

Lastly, I'd like to extend my gratitide to F_E_I_L_D_Y for his opinion about Avatar. I will do my very best to see it ASAP. I would like to hear everyone else's opinions on games that stood out to them this past yeat so please, comment away!

Review up! Thoughts on Avatar and Mass Effect 2?

Avatar poster

So i've been hearing a lot of good things about the movie Avatar. Enough to convince me its worth going to see. Any opinions on it?
