Hello everybody, it's been a while. I left for Mexico on July 16th, and I came home on the 17th of August. The trip was a blast, and I had to savor every moment of it because I cant go back until after I graduate from college. I did log onto GameSpot I few times while in Mexico, but I didn't really leave anybody any comments, I just checked my messages and updates. I will be sure to go back and catch up on allof yourblog posts that I missed while I was away.
The first thing I did when I got home was check GameSpot, and something in my inbox caught my eye. It was a message from Solid-CELL, the leader of the Metal Gear Solid Veterans Union, which read, "MGS4 demo TRAILER!" I wasn't sure if I read it right, but I opened it and followed the link. Sure enough, there it was, the first gameplay video of MGS4! It was everything I thought it would be and more:D When I finished watching the video I went to sleep (I arrived at the airport at 11:50PM). The next day, I checked my PS3 for updates and updated the firmware to 1.9, then I checked the store and downloaded demos for GRAW2 and The Darkness (and the MGS4 gameplay video in HD, I just can't get enough of it).
I first played GRAW2, and it is really fun. The ability to see your enemy from a bird's eye view is very helpful, and cool8) Then I played The Darkness. The name says it all, it's a pretty dark game. The funny thing is that, even with all those cool darkness powers that you can manifest, I love using the handguns. It's also fun to summon a Berzerker and have it do all your work for you. Another thing I like about the game is the Mafia spin they added to it. The voice acting is great, I will definitely consider getting this game when I have the money.
Some game called Bioshock came out yesterday, you probably haven't heard about it. From what I hear, it's pretty good. I can't play it because I don't have a 360, and my PC needs a way better video card. Everyone who has played it seems to like it, I don't understand why it hasn't generated any buzz:P
Another new MGS4 video popped up today on GameSpot, Konami keeps delivering the goods. It shows a bunch of new robots and what I think could be Psycho Mantis with a few extra arms and on steroids. At the end it still said it will be released worldwide in early 2008. I'm thinking they will have a playable demo ready for TGS, well I hope they do.
Right now I'm caught up in getting ready for college, and going to court. I registered at Portland Community College before I left for Mexico, but I still need to take a placement test and figure out my schedule. I'm going to college for two years to get an Associates degree in Graphic Design. That is the most basic degree, but at least it's something. I have to go to court because I left for Mexico, my friends and I had some illegal fireworks left from independence day that we wanted to light. We didn't really worry about getting caught, because we saw lots of peoplelighting them on the Fourth of July and only get warnings. Well, we were caught, and the officer said that they can only give warnings on the Fourth, after that they have to give citations, and now I have a court date. My friends already went to their court dates and they each have to pay $200, there goes my Rock Band fund:(
Well, this was just going to be a short update, but I got a little carried away:lol: Anyway, it's nice to be back and I would like to hear from you all to know how you're doing.
