I don't really do blogs on levelling up on Gamespot but it certainly did take a while to get through Metal Slime .
So a quick update on my rented games!
From Sunday I pretty much just played a whole lot of Lost Odyssey and I got up to the 4th disc on Tuesday, unfortunately I have been neglecting The Bourne Conspiracy so far. Its a good game but soon becomes repetitive, I only played the first few levels on my cousins Xbox but am lacking motivation st start playing it.
So I'm kinda stuffed really, I could probably complete Bourne Conspiracy before Saturday but I doubt I can finish Lost Odyssey. (If anyone has completed it could they tell me how far I am from the end? I'm up to the bit where the party splits in two in some ruins looking for a ship part to get past some fast tides.)
So yeah, Metal Slime beaten and progress.
Hey guys, just a blog of my games wishlist for this year and some other stuff.
Heres the list for this year:
- DBZ: Burst Limit
- Rock band
- Madden 09
- Saints row 2
- Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise
- Legendary: The Box
And in other news...
I've been messing around with some profile schemes lately, though this Halo one isn't concrete it'll do for now and your feedback will be much appreciated. Also has anyone been catching The Line up? Since Jeff ect. left I wasn't really too keen on the gamespot shows but I'm really enjoying this one and the Giant Bombcast over on Giantbomb.com (can't wait till' it gets going this summer).
I know that everyone is talking about MGS4 right now, but I'm really excited for stuff like Ninja Gaiden 2 and DBZ:Burst Limit at the minute. This is probably down to me not having a PS3 but I've never really checked out the series before this and I feel like if I go back and play the games now I won't appreciate them as much as I would of when they were first released.
On the Demo front, I tried out Battle Field: Bad Company and Quake Wars this week and was pretty disappointed. Battle Field could of been a great game with a few tweaks, I found the aiming to be way too sensitive and the control scheme that was purposely going for something different didn't work. By that I mean I think they should of stuck to the basic fundamentals 360 games, this may just be me but I can't get my head around LT being accelerate and LB beings brake (its crazy I tells ya!). I'm posative some people will love the game but the gameplay kinda blew it for me.
Now lets talk Quake Wars. I'm going to be brutally honest with this one, it feels like they grabbed Star Wars: Battlefront and The Outfit made them worse, combined the two and then put the thing into fast forward. It feels like a PS2 game to me, its not a complete shambles of a game however other games have done this better already.
So to sum it all up:
- Check out The Line Up and Giantbomb.com
- If your a hardcore Quake fan check out Quake Wars but if your not save yourself some time and download BF: Bad Company instead, you never know you might like it (probably not).
- Whats your opinion on MGS4 and smaller titles out this month, my new layout and wishlist?
