Time is winding down, and i highly doubt i'm gonna be able to finish...especially with a long work week coming up. I had to cut perfect dark off the list...my cart keeps freezing up every 30 seconds. Brutal Legend is on the last mission and im stuck. Front mission, Yoshi Story/OoT, kessen, and ico are all games im not even gonna try and finish now. But lets focus on what did get beaten since last update

Fallout: New Vegas:
If you have ever played Bethsida's other franchise, the Elder Scrolls, picture that with guns and you have fallout. I played fallout 3 for a while...although all i did was kill everything and neglect the story because, well, it bored me...a lot. New Vegas' storyline was amazing by comparison. Hooked from minute one, the killing spree had to wait until i finished...speaking of which...im waiting for the DLC to go on sale so i can keep playing ^_^

Pros: Open world, Great Story, Graphics, Control.
Cons: Fighting still doesn't feel ...right

Gears 2:

Brilliant. Play It.

Pros: Everything
Cons: Needs more Cole Train.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution:
It begs to say that I started the Deus Ex Series with Invisible War for xbox. the case was shiny, and the guy in gamestop said it was good...the price was right and i played it...straight through without sleeping. Eventually i picked up the first game (see above list), played halfway though....then inexplicably stopped. haven't picked it up since.

Human Revolution was different. I preordered it the day it was announced (last game i preordered was Halo 2...i don't buy launch day games) Since it came out last tuesday, Ive been playing it off and on, picking up Dracula X for turbografx CD in between it and work ( and hurricane prep / tornado warnings).


This was by far, the most action packed game I've played in a while. even the downtime between missions doesn't seem like downtime. The storyline twisted more times than my intestines after taco bell. the gameplay was wonderful. The controls took a bit to get used to, but were fluid after an hour or so.

The enemies were a bit stupid at times though...and to hell with the boss fights. NOT FUN!. The philosophical endings left a bit to be desired...and looked like they came straight out of metal gear solid's flashback sequences. It diddnt click that this was a prequel until the after credits bonus however...which makes it even cooler...and drives me to put The Conspiracy in the PS2 after work tonight.

Pros: Stealth, Badass Costume, Storyline
Cons: AI, Boss Fights


With some diligent playing, i may be able to slug a few more out before the september 6th deadline (school starts >.>). lets see how it goes....

Till next time
