My Games.
   First off I need to thank Phorexia for the text I'm using. I'm not sure if you remember, but you said that you could use text from MS Word or Wordpad and such by changing it in the source code. I only j ust remembered you said it and I've tried it and HOO-RAH it works! So Thanks.
   Anyway, With Xbox Live being down today I figured I'd write a little something-something about some of my favourite games for Live, if anything, just to pass the time until it comes back on. As of late I've been abscent from Xbox Live, mostly because I've not been feeling like playing anything interactive. Just been taking it back to the good'ol'days and solo gaming on Campiagns and Arcades.
   So, We'll start with a list of games I'mma mention.

PGR4 - COD4 - Halo3 - Gears Of War - Rainbow Six Vegas 2 - Splinter Cell : DA - Burnout Paradise.

   PGR4 - When I got my 360, PGR3 was way past it's moment. I got Forza2 with it, but never really got into that. I guess it was too realistic for me? The whole time I had my Xbox I was in two minds about getting PGR3. Ultimately I decided against it though because I knew the new game would be out shortly. Made sure I picked it up right away as to not let anyone get the advantage over me and found that it was very accessible, easy to play casually but still had alot of things to learn before you got very good. The arcade mode was something to do when you wanted a few challenges. The Season was excellent if you were in for the long haul, but the games best feature was the online multiplayer.
   Firstly I knew I'd like it, I just happened to love Street Racing, and the occassional game of Cat and Mouse. The addition of Bulldog though blew me away. It is by far the greatest game type of any racing game I've played. I played it alot too! When the game first came out, there was no shortage of players, lobbies were always full, and It never got boring because the same thing never happened twice. However, as the game lost that "new" feel to it, the players dwindled and now I feel like it's one of the most underrated games of last year. Everyone should have it! It's highly addictive if you can play it with a degree of efficiency!
   The add-on pack which is currently free is pretty cool too, introducing a new game type were you basically just roam the open map getting kudos, this makes for a great place to practice without being chased by the "FOX" on Bulldog, or the pressure of trying to keep up with the pack in Cat and Mouse or Street Races.
   I did initially get bored of it, I think the lack of players and the obvious... erm... ignorance of the players, Example : Americans kicking The Uk players and vice versa made it a little annoying to want to be a part of. I'm back into it though and loving it like I was playing back on release day. Probably the best "FUN" racer out there!

   COD4 - Easily the best FPS on the console. I don't care what anyone says, the game is hella addictive. It would've been nice if there was a player skill matching though, as I found myself in games with people who wouldn't get very many kills or would die alot. Even now that happens. A Halo style system would've made it more challenging to rank up. Besides that though, I think the game looked great, it played great, the customisation was a big plus, especially the diversity of Hardcore games where "Stopping Power" and "Juggernaut" wasn't necessary. The maps were very well laid out, lots of difference in the locations and not just a whole map closed off (well not all of 'em). I think what alot of people noticed about the multiplayer was that people tend to be silent. Now that suits me well, because if you've played any game with me, you know I'm a quiet guy, but still, the atmosphere just seems alot more serious and that's not really a good thing in a game.
   The single player was awes... IS awesome too (Still not done it on Vet.) I don't think I've played a game, where even though it's hard, keeps me coming back to try again and again and again. And I know in the end when I do it, be it a year from now or whatever. I'mma feel like I earned the completion!. A Co-Op would've been nice though.


   Halo3 - We all know what this is.  Most anticipated game of last year! Didn't live up to alot of peoples expectations, but a great game none-the-less. I don't really play it anymore, most due to the fact that I can't win on it. (Level 39 - 35 lately) If I do well, my team does bad, if my team does bad, I do well. Only occassionally do I collect a win from my efforts. It also feels like you're being cheated against when you play it, when you see how some of the players manage to kill you. The multiplayer as a whole is fun though when you're playing with people who don't really care about winning, and are just having a laugh. It would seem though everyone is over the game and moving on to better (or worse) things. I love the occassional weekend double XP games of SWAT. Bringing back the days of Halo2 when that was all I used to play, except I was good at it on the Xbox...
   The Campaign was overrated... The Co-Op was frustrating in the way that there was a delayed in the button being pressed and the game carrying out the action. Highly noticable in the throwing of grenades and the pressing of "A" (Jump!). It was good for a first time round, but had little to no-replay value. Enough Said.

   G.o.W. - I don't know what it is about the game that makes me want to play it. It's certainly not the underage kids with their foul-mouths and high-pitched voices, that's for sure! But I think as a multiplayer, the game does well for itself. It takes a little getting used to, and due to that alot of people don't like it. The game is a THIRD-Person shooter! not an FPS and it does make alot of difference to the overall gameplay. There is a huge learning curve if you want to be effective at taking down your opponent and once you master that, the game becomes alot more fun.
   The story was okay, I was recently playing through it again in light of number 2 coming out (refresh my memory to the story line as it were) and it managed to keep my interest longer than I thought it would. Hard but fun when you get passed that point you were stuck on. Co-Op works good too! I think the Multi-lacked a Deathmatch with respawns though....


   R.6.V.2 - I wasn't a fan of the first, I felt all the guns were highly inaccurate. Also, I just wasn't feeling the tactical element to the game (Still don't if I'm honest). I often wonder if people are seeing more than is there. I mean, all I've ever seen in that game are the running and gunning people, or the campers. Which, lets face it, appear in every game that involves wielding a gun! The game also suffers from people who boost themselves up levels to get to the better armour and camos. Thankfully that rank system no longer gives you access to better weapons and it was kept fairly balanced.
   The best part of the game has to be the Terrorist Hunt though, everyone loves this mode, and it's just a laugh and a challenge rolled into one. There's alot of variety and 4people trying to accomplish the task of wiping out the "spawning in your path" enemy is fun. Simple as that.
   The Single player I haven't played too much, what I have played I've liked. The game looks alot better than the last one, and the addition of the sprint feature makes the game feel so much different from the super slow pace of the first.

   Splinter Cell : Double Agent - I LOVE SPLINTER CELL (COME ON CONVICTION). And this game is no exception, I never get bored of it. The single player is just awesome and the story is essential to the game. It doesn't change much in basic principle from the first game. "Stay in the shadows and you won't be seen" but the graphics are alot better, the controls feel smoother and alot more comfortable, the weapons and gadgets are vast and the tension and urgency of the situation is there!
   Online I felt it was a case of | Pandora - Spy Vs Merc - Good | Chaos Theory - Spy Vs Merc - Improved majorly | DA - Just bringing the game back to a level before Pandora, minimal and basic and a stupid move overall | With that being said, it wasn't all bad, and it can be fun to play if you got some stealth-loving gamers to play with!
   I've got a bad feeling that convictions change in format... is going to ruin the games I love so much, but alas, I still can't wait for it... I'm hoping for a good online mode too!


   Burnout Paradise - What can I say, last time I played that ... I BEAT COOKIE! - 'nuff said ! haha. Jus' playin' :D

   Roll on GTA, hoping for a masterpiece! So, I'm done now haha.

Have a good day one and all.
