So, blogger was down for about a day, EEK! lol, It felt weird having blogger down and not being able to A) Make random blogs or B) Post content on pinksquadron (we use blogger as our platform). Some posts were even messed up by the outage, as blogger reports they had to revert some data to a backup on Wednesday, which did funky things to posts that were posted after that point. Had to re-post some things and change some things that were effected by these errors. But all is well now :)
But, back on topic. Quarter of a Century... That's a sizable chunk of time hmm? Just so happens, today is my 25th birthday :) Cha, 25... crazy huh? I know I've got many a friend here on GS who are past that age... but for me, at least, it feels weird. It's one step closer to 30 and then... oldness :P lol. Dun worry about me though, I'm keep gaming till I'm dead :P
Oh, btw, if you wanted to get me cake, either of these will do:
It's amazing what some people can do with cakes, huh?
The absolute best thing about this day though... isn't my birthday... but the fact that it marks the first of 9 days I've got off from work :) Free time seems to be in short supply as of late and getting away from work to just chill is a welcomed break.
What I'm playing:
|*Insert loud Big Daddy growl|
Taking a look at the trophies... I decided I'd try for the one where you must defeat the game on Survivor Difficulty - without using Vita Chambers. Survivor difficulty is the 4th difficulty, a level beyond hard... and it lives up to it's name. I find it takes A LOT to kill even the basic splicers and ammo is scarce like you wouldn't believe. I had a robo-drone helping me out for a bit and before he blew up, he was quite handy. I notice the game goes much slower as I'm trying to stay alive (as opposed to just plowing through on easy). I've noticed that when I do get some ammo, the weapons beyond the pistol are hellish handy. Shotgun burst and shots from the Tommy gun are extremely effective at stopping splicers in their tracks. Hope I'm able to stick with it and complete the game on the difficulty I set out for.
Red Faction: Guerrilla (PS3)
|Meet my giant sledge hammer, bitch.|
I've done a large chunk of the main story missions and even tackled some side missions as well. It feels great as you can go at it, at your own pace and how you choose to do so. Generally, finding a mech and destoying everything in your path is the best way to go :P Sadly, mechs are scarce! I just unlocked the Jet pack for my dude and it's come in handy on a number of occasions. I was so impressed with the title, I went ahead and pre-ordered the new title coming out in June (Red Faction: Armageddon).
Brutal Legend (360)
|"What do you mean the story is retarded?"|
Monster Hunter Tri (Wii)
|Hunter monsters is a lot of fun - even when the game is kinda ugly :P|
Damn, monster hunter is kewl. I've played one title before this on my PSP and really liked it so I instantly wanted to play the Wii version. I use the classic pro controller (looks kinda like a PS2 controller) for it instead of the actual Wii motion controls (which Im not a fan of) and it actually works rather well. Oddly enough though... the game looks bad... lol. I shouldn't expect too much out of a Wii game... but I swear the MH I have on my PSP looks sharper than this does :P I've just been playing the single player thus far, haven't tried it online.
|Decent looking for a Wii title and it's fun to boot.|
Anyways, that's it :) Peace sukkas.
