I definitely haven’t post anything in about a month or so, i don’t know i kinda forgot about all this and well i didn’t felt like it either. About me well there isn’t much to say, my life have been the same like always, playing some games, watching TV, same old sad and boring life. Remember the problem i had a while back with a friend, i think was the second post i ever did on this blog, well she talks to me again LOL, she is like that mean and weird but i don’t hold grudges so is all fine. I still feel i like her and all that, shes my friend but i don’t think much in it what can i do just let it go, she don’t like me never will so. Such is life… 😦

I been also playing some Playstation 3 and xbox. I got cheap for the xbox 360 Dead Space and Mass Effect 2. They aren’t new releases but very awesome games, Dead Space is scary as hell, always wanted to played but i hate playing Horror games but finally i decided to play it and it is awesome, i will definitely look forward to Dead Space 2. Mass Effect 2 is a very good RPG and i love it, long game, free world and huge, many things to do, i loved the first one and the second is a lot better. For the Playstation 3 i got Medal of Honor, Fallout: New Vegas and some downloable games like Shank, Costume Quest, Castle Crashers and Deathspank Thongs of Virtue. Medal of Honor isnt that great, is not bad either but is not even close to call of duty, the game could had been a lot better, i still think is worth the money but is not so great, the worse game i have got in recent years lol. Fallout is other story, i love RPGs and Fallout is no exception currently i am playing a lot of it and still need a lot to explore, quest and many things to do, LOVE it. Anyways that’s all for now, 2 weeks more and Black Ops arrive.

I haven’t post in a very little long time, i suppose there wasn’t much to talk about. Now that classes have started i have more free time around university bored so i suppose ill write more regularly, like i am doing now.

So this is my second day @ the University and well even tho there is a little emotion because this is my last year, the beginning of classes didn’t came without problems. First i had to get a certification of graduation whatever its name is, i just did two weeks before classes started, the thing cost 100 dollars. Two weeks before classes started i had to go to an office and do a huge line and wait around 5 hours in it, she told me the steps i had to follow to get that certification. Now i have to keep doing the lines because problems with the scholarship and payments but well always happens, I haven’t even attended a class room yet but i hope to do so tomorrow, is the first week anyways :). The university is a little boring this year, most people from Computer Science (at least most that i know) have graduated already, there are a few friends around still, but anyways lets hope i can finish this and have a good future.

In other subject as i mentioned in post before my Playstation 3 was really starting to get damage. One day while my friend was visiting a gamestop to buy a PSN card he asked how much they would give in trade in value for a PS3, the store guy said 200 dollars for a working one. I was like whatttt, thats a good deal (I suppose). So i took my PS3 from the car which i had there for some casualty of life lol, and he tested it and everything and he said 200. The problem with the PS3 was that it turn itself off after around 5 hours of play due to overheating i suppose, out course the gamestop worker wont test the PS3 for long. Me and my friend went to my house to get the cables and controller and gave it away, i asked for a gamestop card with 200 value then headed to other town and bought a new PS3 slim with 100 more added, better than later expending 300. So anyways i also bought Batman Arkham Asylum for xbox, i might talk about it later. Im out…

I haven’t posted anything more related to the world cup and the amazing games played this week like United States versus Algeria, Slovakia versus Italy. Tomorrow is playing Brazil versus Portugal, Spain versus Chile among others, cant wait. Anyway I am not going to talk about “futbol” now, maybe I’ll do later. This post is related to gaming, the games I been playing, either online or offline, and any downloadable content I had purchase, demo’s or anything of that kind.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (Onslaught) – This is my favourite online game currently, this is the one I play mostly with my friend. There have been issues since the last patch (around a month ago), the online  was lagging very badly, I could hardly play so I put it down the game for a while and started playing Modern Warfare to level up my prestige. Today I went to BC2 blog and there was an announcement that they found the problem related to the lagging on consoles and they are fixing the it, I played earlier and the game didn’t lag at all so good for DICE :D. Around two days ago EA and DICE released onslaught mode for Bad Company 2, the cost is 9.99 dollars but my friend bought it so he share it with me :P. I have to say Onslaught is amazing, the downloadable content consist of 4 maps in coop mode, with 4 difficulties, the maps are the same you play on competitive but with new environmental features like fog, night among others. The purpose is to beat the stage in the best time possible with your squad (4 players) and then the time is uploaded to the leaderboards so you can see your ranking position. That’s the only thing I didn’t like about Onslaught, the purpose it just to beat the stage in the best time possible, no experience gain, no levelling up. It is worth playing thou, it is very fun and addictive, I have to warn you that playing it in hardcore is not an easy task, you probably need to find a good squad or at least people with microphones because communication is a must. Something good about it also is that you can pick up the camo skins(if you bought them) and weapons you unlocked in competitive mode. The enemy AI helicopters are a pain to take down, almost impossible, you need to be careful or they will rape your entire team in seconds, same with tanks. I already finish the 4 maps on hardcore difficulty, was a lot of fun, I got all the trophies of Onslaught and I am close to platinum in battlefield, just need two more. Onslaught is worth every penny, I really recommend it, addictive and fun.

Medal of Honor – The BETA of medal of honor was available if you pre ordered the game. Many people complain about medal of honor graphics, well they aren’t the best that’s for sure and are probably worse than battlefield. The online gameplay is fine but the game kinda needs something. The beta was causing many PS3 to freeze every time you reached a killstreak with the terrorist, also when they kill your character you get some kinda lag but all of that is fixable, it is a beta. Something that i didnt like either was that i only see like 3 unlockable weapons, I like customization in games so this is a let down. I know this is a beta and they just put a few weapons and maps playable but I hope they add a lot more weapons because if there is something I like of MoH is how the weapons look. I am not sure if I will buy this game or not, well have to see which games arrive this fall, if they are better than MoH well I probably wont get it.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 – Nothing new in Modern Warfare, I been playing it lately mostly because my friends play it, I don’t like playing online games alone so we make parties. The game is OK, don’t get me wrong but this call of duty was really mess up in many ways. I am tired of so many noob tubes, people with RPGs, the super knife + commando combo, people that you shoot and don’t die yet they kill you easily. The game is mess up but it still fun plus my friends play it so to have a good time with them I also go with them to play. I am currently on prestige 4, i hope at least to make it to 8 or 9, I don’t want to reach prestige 10 because mostly everyone reach it hacking so is not fun. Well I still play it sometimes, but I love Battlefield more.

Farcry 2 – Most of my friends told me this game sucked, so I borrow it from him. I gotta say while is not probably among the best games and I wont pay 60 dollars for it, it is very good. I am starting the game and i am in the first few missions but the game looks fun and OK to play.

Dante’s Inferno – I am playing this for the xbox 360, I borrow it from a friend also. The game is an exact copy of god of war but instead of Greek god’s they use the Christian one. It have a lot of nudity, blood and blasphemy so I suppose if your a strong Christian you wouldn’t want to play this. Things like killing unbaptized babies just wont do it for you. The game is very good and I am almost finishing it, I must do before my friend come to pick it up.

That’s what I been playing mostly, I need also to finish Assassins Creed 2 for 360 and get the achievements, Mass Effect 1 that even thou I finish it I need a lot more of achievements and finish it 100%. What you been playing this summer?

This E3 in my humble opinion was weak compared to previous years, yet still nice and loved it. Many great announcements for all consoles and of course the Playstation was the best :D, but lets keep it neutral (or at least try). Let’s start with the Xbox, I seriously didn’t found anything interesting or new that Microsoft bring to the table. First they showed Call of duty: Black Ops which is a multiplatform, they have deals with Activision to release download content a month before than in Playstation 3 like they did currently with Modern Warfare 2 but that’s about it, Playstation will eventually get it so no big deal. Also they showed Metal Gear Rising which I don’t find a bit interesting, it is also a multiplatform title. All I have to say about HALO reach is LOL, HALO is gay but to each its own, lot of people like it. HALO released the beta of there online game play a few weeks ago before E3 so what was new to show?, it wasn’t even surprising (yawn). The only good title for the Xbox 360 which is exclusive and they show game play for the first time was Gears of War 3. I have Gears of War 2 and I am not a fan of the online competitive mode in it, sucks but the co-op is nice and I really played that a lot. The single player is good, the game have good graphics and is fun to play, maybe is not among the best ever created but is worth every penny. Gears 3 look amazing, new bosses, new bad guys, new playable characters, I will definitely get it when it arrive, if I do have the money for it :).

I wont even go with Nintendo, I mean come on it doesn’t even have online and if it does it sucks. I don’t have a wii so I cant say, but I am not into those games, I am more into shooters and mature games, online games. I didn’t saw Nintendo’s presentation but I did saw a few videos online about some games they are releasing, Donkey Kong looks a lot of fun, like the old school ones. Let’s hope I can play it somewhere in my friend’s house or wherever but I wont get a wii for it.

Sony, oooooo Sony you always deliver. Not to sound like a fanboy or anything but come one, at least they showed some exclusives. They started with Killzone 3 to break the ice, Killzone 3 looks amazing in graphics, like killzone 2 did, probably better. The helghast now have new vehicles, also new environments like snow. I hope killzone 3 online is good, not that the 2 was bad but it didn’t have much weapons to choose from, with online games I like them to have many weapons and customization so I don’t get bored using the same ones. Killzone 2 online was good and I hope they do a better job this time with the third. Infamous 2, tho they didn’t show any game play I bet the game will be as awesome as the first. I honestly didn’t play Infamous much, a friend once bring it home and I downloaded the demo and it is a good game, maybe ill get it cheap one of this days. Another Sony exclusive that I definitely want is Twisted Metal, I always loved this car destruction games like Vigilante 8 back in the days and the old twisted Metal’s. Back then online didn’t existed or if any was online capable I never played them online, so this new twisted Metal online is going to be a lot of fun, cant wait.

They showed a lot more things in this E3 like Playstation move, game like the awesome Fallout: Vegas, Assassins creed: Brotherhood and many more. For more information about what each company and developers are releasing this year and in the next to come go to your favourite gaming news website like G4TV, Gametrailers, IGN or any of those. For now, my wishlist of the games I want are:

  1. Killzone 3
  2. Twisted Metal
  3. Infamous 2 (maybe, it’s only single player bah)
  4. Call of duty: Black Ops
  5. Fallout: Vegas
  6. Medal of Honor ( I am not sure after playing the beta, I have mixed feelings)
  7. Gears of war 3

and many more I am not sure if I will get them or not, too many games, not so much cash. 😛
