I'll try to keep this short :)
I recently changed up the look of my blog page, and I think its for the better. The old one was well, old. I got tired of seeing the same thing over and over again over the course of a year. It didn't quite reflect me, bland and bleh. So what better to put in my profile than Crash Bandicoot? Nothing. Crash Bandicoot is arguably THE game and THE character that got me started in gaming. It was also the first character that I really fell in love with as a child. I have some fond memories of playing Crash Bandicoot and thats why its a central theme in my profile. What do you guys think of it?
As some of you guys may know, I recently picked up an Xbox 360. I'm really enjoying it thus far, its a lot of fun. I don't have many games for it but I recently purchased a game off of Amazon. The game I'm talking about is Gears of War 2. Gears of War has been a series I've always wanted to get into since I first saw it back in 06. I always thought "If I get an Xbox, I am SO getting this game!".. And so I did. I skipped the first because I was told I wouldn't really be missing a whole lot, the story is straight and to the point. With that being said,I'm really liking Gears 2. The graphics are great, story is awesome and it controls very well. Really all I need in a shooter. It also helps that it has co-op, and some other online modes. Beating Locust ass with a buddy in single player co-op is really, really fun. I've yet to play the competitive online component of the game, but I haven't heard good things. Then again, I didn't buy the game for competitive online play. I may do a review on this game later on but for now.. Its a lot of fun.
Heres a little video, captured by me, that I thought I'd put up for you guys. Its the definition of bad ass!:
Before I leave, I wanted to discuss one last thing: Achievements. I never really cared for PSN trophies in the years that I've been on PS3, but all of a sudden.. I've gotten this urge to get 360 achievements. Its strange, but I'm slightly obsessed with my gamerscore. I can't quite explain it. Anyone have the same problem?
Thats roughly that for this blog. Might make another one down the road, we'll see.
Thanks for reading, pce homebro!
