Random thoughts

I seem to notice the amount and my embracing of gaming critique and violence lately. I find I am questioning less of where and who my enemies came from and becoming more of death incarnate. I think Skyrim does that, and don't assume that I don't wonder if Alduin has parties with other dragons in his free time, I still do. I also wonder a lot about the sneak skill but I think about it less. I feel I natural selection in the game, I still feel pity and loss when someone is struck down, but I am feeling it less, and so I feel less human. Please someone comment, or show me you are a human reading this. The other contributors aren't doing anything so I can post things like this ,and I only get spam comments from bots now. I want to know that this blog is still alive.

Moria Brown Mess-up

First off, sorry for the laziness of the blog, once again.
Second, Google mess up a profile picture on Moria Brown.
Instead of normally putting the person's picture next to their biography, the picture was switched with a video game character with the same name. This picture was unaltered when I came across it, search it up if you  want. Hopefully the change is made but until then, we can thank google.

Resistance 2 review

I have completed Resistance 2 and let me say, the ending was disappointing. Much of the game differs from the first. There is a full regen system instead of the quarter regen of the first title. The system is generic FPS stuff: chest high walls, two weapon slots, dull side characters and a competitive mode. However it does have its moments. Some guns are interesting and fun to use like the Splicer, a gun that shoots flying saw blades. The boss fights, yes there are boss fights, are rather simple like quick time events where you must shoot a specific spot. Once again, there are boss that need different methods to defeat like the Swarm that needs to be lured into three different traps. The campaign tries many thing different from the first game but for average FPS audience. The plot is Nathan Hale has been injected with pure Chimera DNA that is slowly turning into a Chimera, a six eyed alien race that wants the Earth. There is another just like Nathan but the other mutated into a flying six eyed alien. The rest of the game is finding the other guy and shooting things that are big.

The cooperative doesn't follow the main campaign but a small team called specter, which seems to do everything. There is no regenerative health but still the weapon limit. Unlike most co-ops the three classes are essential for success. The medic can heal, spec ops can supply ammo and the soldier can deploy a shield to protect the support. The limit of players isn't four or two, but it is eight and probably needed for the vast armies of chimera. The boss system is better with a health bar to determine the state of the boss and drops of 'grey tech' which is used to buy upgrades and weapons. The experience to unlock the equipment is given on the fly whether you damaged something or competed an objective. The exp also fills a bar for a special ability like a kill streak but you don't need kills and you keep the bar if you get revived. The ability can vary from rapid regen, invisibility to a rocket launcher.. The NPCs in the cooperative mode are only plot devices. They don't do much but they always need to be protected. There is perhaps no equal to the cooperative mode.

The competitive mode has the same exp ability bar. The competitive shares the same weapons and regen system from the campaign. The maximum 60 player servers are hard to find but can be incredible if you are into 30 players in a specific point on the map shooting the other team and pushing to another point on the map. The ranked part is to level up and gain more abilities since all the weapons are unlocked at the beginning. The leveling up does make people use unfair weapons like the chain gun that has a mobile shield.

The campaign has a unique plot but not much different from a standard FPS. The cooperative brings a lot of new ideas to the class system and player limit. This gives off a fun experience of lots of shooting and button pushing. However the competitive is fun but at times are very confusing or frustrating.
8 out of 10 mostly for the cooperative.

Black Mesa Update

My computer can't run a certain part of the game so I can't finish it. Judging by what people tell me, I was less than half way through the game so I don't think a review would be very accurate.

Summer Gaming

A good thing summer is for is doing all the worthwhile things. After that is over, knowing some people wouldn't even try to do that, getting bored with your games is another thing after that. I personally think that the longer you don't play a game, the better you get at it. I remember I stopped playing "Patapon" after I couldn't beat the final boss. Many months later, I finally defeat the flying demon. I know this post isn't much but I want people to comment their most ignored games and play them. The other option for the ignored games is to give them to a friend if you don't want to play it.

Borderlands song

borderlands song that parodies rockstar by nickelback hope you like it



I’m through finding hints to a vault I’m never gonna see
It should leave foot prints so I can find it easily
Pandora isn’t what I expected it to be

I want to buy a new car and a bunch of guns
Drive through the planet and have lots of fun
Plus a grenade to destroy 10 not including me

I need a mag with no limit
And a bad ass team just to fit it
Find and fix a claptrap to upgrade my inventory

Go to the cliff and get an achievement
just for staring I can’t believe it
Just listen to handsome jack it’s that easy.

I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame, find the vault in my name
Cause we all want to be big vault hunters
Keep on cutting since my blade doesn’t get blunter
I don’t know what loot I should keep
I’ll hunt at all hours since I don’t sleep
Hang out in the coolest bars
Showing off my biggest scars
Use my special psychic powers
And watch as bandits all go cower
Hey hey I wanna be a vault hunter
Hey hey I wanna be a vault hunter

I want to be great like the four without spoiling
Hope online I don’t see any trolling
Be so amazing that the enemies run from me
Gonna save my ass with the latest shotgun
Gonna play till the game is all done
And be loaded with stacks of money

I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
Find the vault in my name
Cause we all want to be big vault hunters
And I can summon my robot gunner
Gonna have to wait for the cool down time
Wanted by jack for some unknown crime
Hang out in the coolest bars
Showing off my biggest scars
Be the tank and take the damage
When this is over I’ll need a bandage
Sneak around in the stealth suit
Kill them before they can see who
Pick people to finish siren style
And drop them in the body pile

I’m gonna join every fight and gain xp
And level up to upgrade my skill tree
As a friend you can tag along
I’ll shoot everyday so I don’t aim wrong
