Why i dislike the Xbox360

Boy i havent made a blog in ages!

its the midnight so thought i would write a blog regarding why i think xbox360 is probably the worst console i have ever got to own.

First let me start by saying that i been owning the xbox360 for a year and half now and i have played few games on it such as Last Remnant ( amazing game which i have just recently finished ), Infinit Undiscovery and have played other games such as Tales of vesperia, gears of war 2, yu gi oh, bastion, etc ..i tried my best to love the system but everything about the system just pisses me off and here is why ( because im lazy i'll write everything in points form :P ) :

  1. Pay to play online: Why? i just want to say why? why am i being forced to pay money just to play few online games?.. other companies are fully able to provide free online for gamers to play and enjoy so why cant a huge company such as Microsoft not able to provide a simple network like that for free?.. buying a game for $60 is not enough? charge gamers for another $60 plus whatever it costs to pay for the internet. well screw you M$
  2. All services and apps require the pay membership: Now this what pissed me off so much, personally im already paying to use an app called Crunchyroll which is a service that provide anime TV series the moment they release in Japan so i was very excited when the app was released on xboxlive.. i download the app, install it and as soon as im ready to watch something the Network asks me "Please become a xbox Gold member" i couldnt watch and i couldnt use ANY App on my xbox because i simply dont have xbox live.. why? why am i being forced to pay twice? why am i being forced to pay to watch something that im already paying for? something that is already available for acess for free on PC or PS3.
  3. Demo with every game released on xbox?: Thats what i been hearing for years before i pick up an xbox is that every and any game released on the system gets a demo and that actually excited me at first as i thought i would be able to try any game before buying but guess what? i couldnt find Halo 4 demo anywhere, no witcher 2 demo, no skyrim demo, etc etc.. turns out its just a lie.
  4. Batteries in a controller: Are you serious? batteries? what i hate the most is that the controller shuts down so many times to the point where at one of time i was almost close to throwing the controller to the ground :P, i hate it so much when im playing a game and suddenly the controller shuts down because of the batteries.. fa fuq?
  5. Disk Change: Playing on xbox is like playing on a PS1 or a PS2 and i dont mean that in a good way, the thing i disliked last gen is the way how many games forced me to switch disks and this is exactly what the xbox does.."please insert disk 2".. are you serious?
  6. No games: I have my xbox360 simply and only for its exclusive JRPG's ( Japanese Role Playing Games ) and in total it has pretty much 5 exclusive JRPG's and thats about it, many of my friends advise me to get gears of war or halo but after playing Gears of war 2 and gears of war 3 beta i realized this franchise is not for me, same with halo while i get every single multiplat game on the PS3. So what is there else? simply nothing.
  7. DVD's: Because the xbox uses DVD's the system seem to constantly scratch the disks so much that at one of time the LAst Remnant disk couldnt work, i had to clean it and install the game into the HDD till it actually started working.
  8. UI complicated: The User Interface and the whole layout of the system is just complicated and packed with stuff ( useless stuff), it took me a long time till i was able to find where demo's are located at, finding the market place is seriously not easy.

I guess thats it with the ranting :P.. i love Microsoft when it comes to their PC's and windows but gaming wise they are probably the worst! ( imo )

Thank you for reading this blog, i just been really annoyed with my xbox lately :P

Happy New Year!

FFXIII-2 Platinum! woot

Been playing FFXIII-2 non-stop since the day it came out :P.. awesome game by the way i suggest everyone to try it out, anyways yesterday i unlocked the platinum trophy :D.. beatiful platinum took me 80 hours lol

If you have any questions about the game you can ask away anytime

First 15 minutes of FFXIII-2 ( recorded by me )

For those interested to see the first 15 minutes of FFXIII-2 i have recorded using the Roxio game capture from my PS3, i know many arent sure if they should get the game but i can tell you the game is worth it! i have put 14 hours into it so far and am loving it.

I been very interested in doing this for a while now tho where i record the first 10 to 15 minutes of the games and upload to youtube, hope it becomes succssful.

Get PSVita for $80 :o

EBGames and Gamestop are doing some great deals for anyone that is interested in getting the new PlayStation Vita system, the retailer is doing a trade 4 games, any games that are worth $8 or higher and bumb up the the value for all 4 gams to $100 towards a vita lower it down from $250 ( if you would like the WIFI version ) to $150, another deal they have is if you trade an old system/console/handheld towards the Vita it will earn you $70 which could mean if you do all the above you can have $170 towards the vita which would require you to pay $80.. best deal ever?

So assuming you find 4 old games that are worth exactly $8.. $8X4= 32.. they'll increase that to $100 if you trade them towards a vita.

Ar Tonelico Qoga Perfect Ending :D

Have finally beat the game on perfect ending and for anyone that dont mind spoilers here is the perfect ending video which i have just recorder off my PS3 and uploaded, very great and much better than the sad ending i must say, the bad/sad ending was very depressing

Ar Tonelico Qoga one of the best JRPGs to come out this gen, filled with great soundtrack, i suggest RPG fans to give this a try, on the PS3

Going to be uploading more videos of my games and try not to be too lazy :P

How to Nuke on MW2 ( been requested by my friend )

Here with this blog i thought i would post the steps i use to call a Nuke streak on MW2 which require you to get 25Kills withouts dieing, a friend of mine wanted me to post how i do it and to be honest its not that hard, just use your perks wisely and you should do it in no time, if you follow what im going to say now you should be able to call your very first nuke or even double nukes, so lets start:

Steps to get a 25 killstreak on MW2 ( Nuke ):

  1. Silent: Being Silent is all about getting the big streaks, silent weapons do not show where you are on the map to the enemy, go silent and nobody will know what hit them, also becareful killcams are your worst enemy, try to not stay in one place due to the killcam as it shows who ever you killed when you were at. stay silent at all time
  2. Chose the right weapon: Mw2 has many weapons to chose from but only few are best when using them with a silencer, TAR, UMP,ACR and AK47 are all THe best weapons to use for quick reload and quick kills.
  3. Clymores: Clymores are like girl friends, girlfriends bring you gifts, cook for you and more :P. clymores are the same except in MW2 they give you kills and LOTS of them, make sure that you always plant the entrance with a clymore and plant an exit as well to secure that nobody comes in, and always plant your back, whenever your walking plant the area you left.
  4. Chosing the best perks: This is the mostimportant part and that is the perks, chosing perks are truly important, be wise and have multiple sets of clases with diffrent weapons and perks, having one man army is great to have no ending ammo and no ending for clymores, its like having a free shop where you'r never out of ammo or clymores and can always change to any other cla$$es P. if you do it like me and have all the clases have one man amry but diffrent perks for each clas es the enemy will never know what hit them :P. its like your a changing ninja. plus stopping power, so a combination of stopping power and cold blooded should be great.
  5. Use the Corners: Oh god dont ever run in the middle, ALWAYS use the corners to move around and watch who ever moves in the middle and kill, be the smart player and move quitly.
  6. Listen: Listening in MW2 is THE best way to do well, use a headset or focus on the TV and listen, the enemies footsteps always easy to listen to on MW2 and you can easily know where the enemy is coming from, this is exactly what i do with the help of my headset i listen and exactly know where the enemy is coming from before they even come to me.
  7. Streaks: The last step is chosing the best streaks, if you want a nuke and you think your vry good then go for the big boys with a pavelow, a chopper gunner and a nuke ( 9,11 and 25 ) or the usual ( 7,11 and 25 ) or the recently i noticed ( 7,9 and 25 ). works like a charm.

Doing and following those should help :P

250+ MW2 nukes and counting XD

For this blog i thought i would talk about my most favorite First Person Shooter and the legend that is Call of Duty series 8). Let me tell you all how much i used to hate FPS games before the PS3 comes out, i used to only play RPGs during the PS1 and PS2 days and only RPGs plus adventure games, when PS3 first came out they also released Call of Duty 4, still wasnt even planning to pick the game up seeing how i did not like FPS games, waited almost 2 years after CoD4's release till i finally bought it ( my friends kept telling me to get it every single day since it released ), i got to say i was blown away! Call of Duty 4 was so good i ended up playing nothing but CoD4 for months till i became a huge fan of series, the games in my opinion destory every other FPS out there, heck if it wasnt for CoD i wouldnt even think about buying games like resistance, killzone or battlefield and so on :P. still i have yet to see any other game that is as addictive as coD sadly.

Anyways lets talk about MW2, Mw2 is bascially my favorite Call of Duty title ever! that game is so good i honestly still till this day play it :P, what makes it so addictive are the big killstreaks it got, for those not sure about the game when you play online for each kill you get without dieing the game earns you rewards called killstreaks, they range from 3 kills to 25 kills ( nuke ), i have officially called over 250 nukes online to date! :P.. yes i kind of counted :lol:.. if anyone still playing Mw2 here on gamespot and for the PS3 add me and lets play together :D. i have recently checked how many time i spent on Mw2 and i actually spent over 35days playing online :P thats not counting the months i spent on spec ops with my friend and playing story mode twice :lol:.. yes im so addicted :lol:

and you guessed it im very much looking forward for the king of FPS and its return with MW3 :D

Despite me loving CoD i still play other games too and many know me here as the JRPG lover, i love JRPGs and play them all the time but to be honest its quite less than how i used to play them before, i now see myself playing more Western games than japanese :P. the recent japanese game i just beaten is Catherine, so good of a game.

till next time everyone. what do you all think of Call of Duty?
