All About RealKilla_789
The whole gaming community has been been in uproar ever since the comments since that one guy from Microsoft made his comments about the next Xbox, saying that he doesn't understand why people are going crazy over the "always-online" rumors. I for one don't understand either. I'm willing to bet that most gamers that read the article are connected to the internet all the time. Why does it matter whether it requires you to be online if you're already online 99.9% of the time anyways.
But nooo. Gamers can't risk that 99.9% chance. "Well what about that .01% chance that my power goes out. I won't be able to play my games!" Really? You can't survive without games for a couple of hours (or however long your power will be out. And in most cases, not long).
"I'll lose 5 minutes of gameplay because I didn't get to save in time before the power went out." Come on really? Most games these days are pretty good about their checkpoints. You're really not considering getting a console just because you'll lose some of your save information? Get a life!
Reading the System Wars forum for the past few days, I could go on and on about useless complaints and cries from the vocal minority. I really just wanted to make this blog to say two things:
1. You don't know jack about the Xbox 720
It's the truth. None of us really know any thing about the Xbox 720, so why are people getting so irate over a product they don't know any thing about? Every thing we're seeing right now are RUMORS. Nothing is official and the console isn't official yet. It makes no point to complain because most of your complaints may be resolved already. Look, Microsoft is a very smart hardware company. Yes, I believe that their next Xbox will be online-only, but I also believe they'll have something that will make you forgot that it is.
2. I'm not a cow, lemming, or a goat. I'm a gamer
At the end of the day, I plege no allegience to any one console. I'm a gamer first and foremost. I'm not jumping on your bandwagons and wishing the death of Microsoft. I'm going to sit back and see what both companies (Sorry Wii-U fans, this is a two-man race) have to offer. If Microsoft can give me an excellent gaming experience plus give me an excellent multimedia experience, I'm sold. If not, Sony is where I'll go.
I keep promising myself I'll post new blogs and I never do. Any ways. The original Bioshock is probably my favorite game of this generation. The game was so innnovative. Plasmids were so fun to use and it was cool to see what the new one would do to your foes. There was something amazing, at the time to have the ability to turn a turrent on the enemies. I'll never forget the intro of the game with the lighthouse. I'll never forget my first encounter with a Big Daddy. And who could forget Andrew Ryan. Irrational Games developed an amazing piece of work and I applaud 2k Games giving them the opporunity to do something different.
Now six years later we have Bioshock Infinite. I bought the game on PC through Green Man Gaming. The deal was pretty good. With pre-order you got $14 cash, Xcom, and two games of your choice. I got Bioshock 1 and Civ V. Although I have and played both games, I traded both for games I didn't play. Infinite activated on Steam so I pre-loaded it.
I'm about three hours into the game, and so far, I have to say it's amazing. I'm running the game on Ultra settings with a 1920x1080 resolution. The city of Columbia looks beautiful. The city just begged me to explore. Walking around I've been looking through every nook and cranny. I look at all the interesting posters that's on the walls. I listen in on the conversations of the people, however, it feels a little disconnected because they're all robotic. The go about their day, but they pay you no mind when you walk up to them. It's like you're invisible.
One of the most memorable moments so far is going up the tower on Momument Island, where Elizabeth is held. On your way up you learn that Elizabeth is some sort of specimen that's never been out in the real world and scientists have been analyzing her every move since she was a baby. The scenery that was set up in the tower was very creepy, but it was effective at what it was trying to portray. In one room you walk in you see a chair with straps on it and various medical tools next to it. Then, in the same room, you also see jars full of various thing such as hair and nails!
Then in another room you walk in and see a projector and a bunch of seats where scientist would sit and watch recorded videos of Elizabeth. I turned on the projector and see clips of this young girl dancing, painting, and even picking locks. Not many games I have played can paint such vivid pictures in my mind and allow me to recount them like this.
I can't wait to get back into the game and play more.
P.S. riding the skylines are amazing.
I think a couple of blogs ago I started saying I would start blogging and what not. Well, that did not last very long. I don't think many people are reading this right now, so I don't think many care, but I promise I'll start blogging. That being said, what do I say...
Oh that's right, Mass Effect 3 comes out tomorrow. I'm pretty excited about this release. I love the Mass Effect franchise. I played the first game on 360 and loved it. Then I played the sequel on PC. I did not get the luxury of importing my saves obviously, so recently, I borrowed ME2 from a friend so I could see if the save import was really what it is cracked up to be. I went back and rushed through ME1; took about 10 years. And now I'm playing ME2. I have to say, I actually see the effects of what I did in the first game and it feels meaningful. I am in the latter part of ME2 now and I won't be able to beat it by the time I play ME3, which sucks. I"m debating just holding off on ME3 until I beat ME2, but who can resist playing a new game?
Before I replayed the Mass Effect games, I think I was playing Bayonetta, which really surprised me. The combat in that game is really good. I've never played a Devil May Cry game, so I don't have any basis to compare Bayonetta to. However, I know a good game when I play one. I do not know the story at all; I just skip all the cutscenes.
My backlog of games hasn't been this big since I had my gaming PC. Not only do I still have to beat Bayonetta, but I also just bought Dark Souls. I rented it from Gamefly when I had a month trial for $1. I loved Dark Souls a lot so when I was able to snag it for $22, I was pretty happy. But it'll have to hold off for a while. Other games on my backlog include Mafia 2, fallout new vegas, condemned criminal origins, and other games I can't think of right now.
Well, I think that's about it for this blog. What games are you on your guy's backlogs?
