Past two weeks, I got two new games, Gears of War 2 and Dead Space. Both really fun, but I can't really give a detailed response due to the fact that my Xbox kept overheating every two minutes I played on it. Because of this, I had to get it repaired and didn't g to fully play each game. However, I did go to my friends house to play them. I have to say, Gears 2 was very emotional and had a better background story than Gears 1. Mutiplayer is addicting, especially Horde Mode. When I bought Gears , I got the Collector's Edition, which gave me a Gold Lancer. I wasn't able to make the Midnight Madness for the Golden Hammerburst, though.
Dead Space is a great single player game. Advanced graphics and scares the **** out of you. One reason I bought it was to fight my fears of playing scary video games. I never played scary games, but I wanted to start because I was missing out. I decided to start the game on Hard. I had a blast, although my herat kept beating fast. I only got to finish Chapter 1 before I had to leave for my friends house.
When Christmas comes, I'm hoping to get the Call of Duty: World at War Collector's Edition anad the FAllout 3 Collector's Edition. Usually I only get Collector's Edition for only my most favorite games like Gears 2 and Halo 3 because I don't like to have a bunch of metal boxes. I like to have the original green game case to keep my collection in unison and looking similar. The metal boxes don't fit in with it. But after I researched, I found out that both Fallout 3 and World at War come with green cases inside the Collector's Edition so this was a bonus for me. I can get the Collector's Editions with the Cod Canteen, Fallout 3 Lunchbox and Vaultboy Bobblehead, and still have the green cases.
After the New Year, I will be getting the DSi and Halo Wars Collector's Edition. I will be getting the DSi because I still have the original, bulky DS. The DSi has a better, bigger screen, better buttons, an internal and external camera, SD card slot, MP3 apabilities, and internet surfing capabilities. It's a must for me because I will be going to France for one of the clubs I'm in.
When I researched Halo Wars Colelctor's Edition, I found out it will not be releasing with a green case. However, I will still be purchasing it because the extra items it comes with are worth it. Plus, the metal case is sexy enough to get. The extra items include a graphic novel titled, Halo Wars: Genesis, 6 leader cards, Sprit of Fire patch, an in-game Flaming Warthog, 3 Halo 3 maps from the Mythic Map Pack, and an in-game Honor Guard Wraith if you preorder.
This year's going to be fun.
