What I've been up to in the last several months

I'll start off with talking about the game I've been waiting for ever since I saw a rumored video on youtube over 3 years ago. I'm talking about GHOSTBUSTERS!!! I bought the game the same week it came out (not something I do very often, as I am a cheapskate, lol). I enjoyed every single moment of the game. However, I will say that the online play is fun at first, but loses its punch after a few hours. The story itself is great and funny, but once you play through the game once, you might not really care to play it through again. I will most likely play through it again and I'll never get rid of the game due to the fact that I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan, but I will admit that I would only give the game a 7 outta 10. Dunno if it was worth 60 hard earned dollars, but I wouldn't becomplaining one bit if it would've been only 40.

Now lets talk about the other brand new game I bought (OMG, I bought two brand new games in one month. I might have to shake away this cheapskate title). I got Red Faction Guerilla and I have to say that even though a lot of the missions are just re-hashed from previous missions, the game is still an absolute BLAST to play. I've never had so much fun blowing stuff up and destroying entire buildings. Not to mention, you actually have to destroy the buildings the way you would have to in real life. You can't just throw a couple remote charges inside of it, hit the switch, and expect the building to crumble. In fact, setting off a couple remote charges inside the building might take out a few windows and the ceiling above, but unless it's a dinky little building, chances are that building barely has a scratch. Red Faction online is great too! If you're a COD fan (which you probably, who the hell isn't?), don't play this game online the way you would play COD. In fact, you pretty much don't have a choice, the online matches won't let you play like it's COD. Instead, this game has a nostalgic feel of the original Unreal Tournament online deathmatches, but with much, much sharper graphics. Then there is Wrecking Crew mode, which I'll leave the explanation of this mode up to the quote of Game Informer magazine (quote may not be word for word): "I haven't played a multiplayer play-and-pass mode (passing the controller) that was this much fun since Burnout's Crash mode." I would have to say that as much as I love this game, I have to give it somewhere between a 9 and a 9.5 outta 10. LOVE THIS GAME. (sorry this paragraph was so damn long, lol)

So I've been playing Tiger Woods 07 online quite a bit again lately. I just love golf. Too bad I'm not good enough at it in real life, otherwise I'd be playing other people for real money instead of playing digitally over the net. Last Friday night, it was 2:30 in the morning and I was playing some guy who had sent me an invite to play a match. However, I didn't realize he invited me to play 18 holes on stroke play (you Tiger online golfers already know how long this can take). I will say that I was somewhat tired when I started this match. I thought it was only going to be 9 holes on stroke play. Of course I figured out it was 18 holes after we started the 10th hole. Now the meat of this story: This guy I was playing was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO terrible, he took at least 5 strokes just to get on the green on just about every hole. The last hole I remember playing was the 13th. I fell asleep somewhere during the 14th hole I think because I was getting so bored waiting on him to get on the green. I've never fallen asleep during a match before, but lemme tell ya that it sucks. So of course I got a loss for it because I had too many shot-clock violations. I woke up about 4 hours later with the results screen the only thing showing on my screen. Oh well, just take my advice: Pay attention to exactly what game you're about to join, and then assess how long you think it's going to be, ESPECIALLY if you're getting tired.

Then there is Fallout 3. Great game, very similar to Oblivion, but I like Fallout even more because it's got guns, lol. I will admit though that I started to get a little sick of the game after 130 hours of gameplay, but that's because it was the only game I played during that whole 130 hours. I should've took a break from it for a while. For now it's just chillin' on the shelf, but I will play it more after a while.

I would type more, but my lady is ready for me to start helping cook dinner. Yeah, I know, I'm so whipped. LOL
