New Star Wars Game comingThere's supposed to be a new Star Wars game announced at the VGA this year with a trailer. I'm hoping it will either be Tie Fighter II, a new JediKnight game, or maybe Battlefront III. What do you guys think? I'm just hoping it's not a Clone Wars game.
Featured Again?I've been getting comments that I was the featured user. Really? Me? I've hardly been logged on. Wow. Aren't I the Bad Ass.
Well as far as Disnbey goes. I was transferred out of monorails because of some Bullshit. But due to the recent wreck (I knew him by the way, Good Man), I'm coming home in August. I miss Texas. I just got back from visiting and my Grandmother is getting old and I want to spend as much time with her as I can because if there is one thing recent events have taught me is that don't pass up time with loved ones because you never know when it will end.
Going to DisneyI've might have told some of you that I've been trying to get a job at Disney World. Well last Monday my dreams finally came true and I am now hired to woek there from January 26th to June 5th. I think I got the Monorail. I hope I did. So if any of you happen to travel there between that time come say hello, will ya?
Why McCainI think McCain is better then Obama for the following reasons:
1. The Economy- I noticed that throughout the debate that Obama said he would raise taxes on people who's income would be $250k+. He also said that he would grant a tax credit to small businesses to pay for their full-time employee's Health Insurance. Now most people who own a small business make over $250k a year. He just said that he wanted to Tax them. Now let's also remeber that the income of those people are before they pay their cost-of-living expenses such as the things that we pay. However, they're also paying for their own healthcare and they're also paying for whatever expenses that involved in operating their own business. Again he wants to tax them. He is right on one thing though: Small businesses should be granted a tax-cut to help give their full-time employees healthcare.
Now McCain wants to lower taxes not just for 5% of Americans but for ALL Americans. It doesn't matter if you make $35k a year or if you make $350k you're gonna have your taxes lowered, which means you'll be able to afford higher energy prices or those TV's you always wanted or if you want you can invest it. That is what makes our economy thrive: Consumerism. You don't believe me, then stop buying iPods, Laptops, PS3s, XBOX360s, Wiis nad everything else that you spend your money on. In fact don't even buy food. After all, the food that you buy comes industry and businesss too.
Once that happens then less business comes in which means less income, which also means that as a result people will lose their jobs and they won't be able to provide for their families or it will be considerably difficult for them to until they find another job, if what has happened to their previous employer isn't ALSO happening to the company they are trying to seek employment. The only way for jobs to be created are for companies to expand from more and more business.
2. The War- Obama wants everyone to leave Iraq within a set time-frame. Let's shift this down a little bit to the schoolyard bully. If you're the bully and you're trying to pick on some little kid and that little kid's big friend is out there to keep you from doing that or better yet keeps beating the shit out of you what would be the better strategy: Give up OR wait until the little kid's friend has to leave because the teacher (Obama) says it was time for that kid to leave? I'm sure some of you have been there before.
One other thing. During his trip to Iraq, Obama was about to visit troops in the hospital in Germany. However, when he was told that the news cameras and campaign staff were not allowed to take footage out of respect for those that he was about to meet, he decided to move on because if he wasn't able to have his photo-op then he was wasting his time. Yes I know about that Pentagon telling him that a day in advance but that shouldn't have stopped him from doing so.
His trip was cut short however. It wasn't because of some matter in the Senate that was SO IMPORTANT he needed to to fly straight to Washington and vote on the matter which is what he was elected to do in the first place, no it was because while playing Basketball with some of the troops, he hurt his hip. Nevermind the fact that the troops over there have back inuries from carrying all of their equipment or nerve damage caused by the recoil of their own weapons while fighting for their lives in a firefight or have injuries that put them in hospital in Germany that Obama decided not to visit.
Senator McCain's ordeal in The Hanoi Hilton needs no introduction. However, I should point out that great leaders have come people with the courage to fight even when that battle is hopless. In my opinion the greatest of men to follow are those men who are willing to endure trying times both mentally and physically and have the courage to reach deep down for the strength to continue. Senator McCain has proven that throughout his life. Wouldn't you rather have someone who will not give up over someone who would would?
A Few Ideas For XBLAOne of my favorite games for XBLA is DOOM. The fact that they can take an old game like that and out it on a console only proves that they can put a lot of old PC classics on there. One game in particular that comes to mind is Star Wars: Dark Forces.
Some of you might remeber a few years back that I did a marathon of Star Wars games to gear for ROTS. But now if I can't play my fav. game it kinda makes it not worth it. And I'm not talking about Dark Forces eiher. I'm talking Dark Forces II and Mysteries of the Sith. Videos today take up more space then those games.
Everyone's a Suck-Up...I'm going to be real honest with you guys but most of these comics they put up just flat-out suck. I mean they're not that funny. Yet people suckup to Fink by saying they are when they're not. Do another RedvsBlue series. Don't put up that shit (the comics) instead. C'mon!
It's hard to believe that almost six years ago I was in EB Games looking for a game to play on the 1st XBOX. I remember walking in and aking for a game (of which I can't remember) and the clerk saying "Sorry, it hasn't come out yet." and I ask him "What about that game, uh, Hallow?" (I didn't know Halo was pronounced Halo) and he say's " OH YOU MEAN HALO!". Then it began! Over the next 3 years and many LAN Parties after School on Fridays Halo ruled my life.
Here we are to Halo 3. Many of my friends have moved on but I'm still fighting the fight. But how good is Halo 3? Is it better then the other 2? Let's break it down:
Gameplay (10.0): Pretty much the same as it has been and that is is no way a bad thing. While there are several addtions to the weapons inventory and return of classics like the Assault Rifle, his is the first game in the franchise to get everything mostly right. Weapons are more properly blanced but the thing that I'm a little disappointed is that instead of 60 rounds the AR holds only 32. The Covenant plasma rifle no longer stuns your opponents when the get hit but then again, it was probably unfair in the first place.
As for the Story, some levels are really short while others are incredibly long and the rest are in-between. But you know, there really isn't much left to be said about anything else. It doesn't have the quite the impact that first one had but it is lots better then 2nd one. The most obvious reason is you don't play as the Arbiter which I thought was pointless in the 2nd one. Finally the last level is my favorite becuase it is just such a huge nod to the first Halo (literally) that it brought a huge grin to my face as I played it. Say what you want, but I loved it.
Graphics (9.0): I have mixed feelings about the graphics. I want to say they look fantastic all round but the one big problem is the sight of jaggies in some places. I'm hoping Bungie releases some sort of patch for that but that doesn't look like it'll happen anytime soon. However, the texture quality is really good! If you can look past the jaggies then it shouldn't be an issue. If you have a 1080p TV, then I envy you.
Sound (9.5): Cover your ears! If you are prone to hearing loss from the Fury of Combat (or the voice of pre-pubiscents): Cover your Ears! Oh yes the acting is good too.
Multiplayer (9.0): Ah yes, what Halo is most famous for and what has dominated those parties that everyone has participated in since November 15th, 2001. There are plenty of options to keep giving for another 3 years. The only complaint is that there just aren't enough maps. I wish there more but hopfully new maps will be coming soon. The current maps though are a mix bag of quality. Some that may be favored some are hated by others while some are hated all together. I have a few of my own.
What really sells the the game here though is the Forge. It is the map editior in that you can change everything around (except the map itself). For example, if you think that that there aren't enough fuel drims around, put some more in. Want an extra Warthog? You got it!
Overall (9.5): Definatley a GOTY contender. With games like Halo 3 and Mass Effect it looks like Microsoft is going to take it this Holiday Season. The Chief has landed on the 360 and he's here to Finish the Fight
