Yay for Steam

Finally steam got something I want to buy, I picked up Tomb Raider, I was going to pick up hitman but I think I won’t be able to pick it up today so I’ll have to wait till it goes on sale again. Also, Elder Scrolls Online is awesome, don’t want to talk about it though since the NDA and all.

RIP Hard Drive

Well, thats it folks, my hard drive has died on me. I was about to back up a bit more files before this would happen but guess I was too late. It’s not all that bad though, I saved a majority of what I wanted. I ordered a 1TB hard drive instead of 2 that way I can save some money for the Steam Sale. Greenmangaming Had DmC for like $12 when you added the 25% off coupon but it’s not working any more so I’ll just pass until it goes back to that price on some other website. My hard drive arrives next week so no Witcher 2 for me till that time. Just when I was finally starting to get the hang of the game too :P. I guess I’ll use the time to catch up on some of my PS3 backlog and continue playing Persona 4 Golden. They added Battlefield 3 to PS+ yesterday so I’m playing a bit of that. I’m complete garbage at it, that’s why I originally sold it but eh what the hell, its still a pretty fun game anyway. 

RIP Hard Drive, you had a very short life(less than a year) but you did a great job in your short time alive, hopefully your successor ends up being better than you.

OH NOEZ!!

My hard drive is dying!! it makes an irritating clicking sound every now and then and when it does it my pc starts to slow down tremendously. I’m currently backing up files, you know the important shit. School work, short stories I’ve typed, some funny gifs and pictures, game saves, and my Fallout New Vegas file. I really hope I don’t lose all my mods. It was such a pain in the ass when I switched over from my laptop to a PC. Had to redownload everything because for some reason my NV would crash all the time. This time I’m copying over my Nexus mod manager and my NV folder.

It sucks that my hard drive is dying though, I haven’t even had it for a year :/ well, I’m going to look around Amazon or Newegg and see what I can find. Thinking of getting a 2TB Western Digital HDD. I hear it’s a good brand, hopefully it doesn’t crap out on me in less than a year like this one did >_>. I was planning on starting my Witcher 2 playthough today, guess that’ll go on hold. Plus, I don’t think I’ll be purchasing anything this summer during the Steam sale since most likely I’ll end up spending my entire steam budget on a new hard drive 😦 Guess I’ll have to wait till the winter; maybe I can get some of the money from my aunt who owes me like $1.5k(it’s a long story, don’t ask.) and I might be able to still buy stuff. I don’t know, we’ll see.

Beat American Nightmare(Super Short Review)

What a dull game. I tried the first level in arcade mode(which is basically horde mode) and uninstalled the game afterwords, it wasn’t my cup of tea since I’m not really one of those aim for high scores kind of guy. Took me five hours to beat the story. Only thing that kept me going through  the game was the notes scattered throughout the world, honestly it’s the only interesting thing about the game. In story mode you’ll visit three different areas three times, each one containing its own damsel in distress. Each mission is practically a fetch quest, “Alan, go do this so you can get that.” Also all the missions are the same thing as well, just slightly altered.Honestly there isn’t much for me to say about this game. If you enjoyed Alan Wake 1 and want to buy American Nightmare for its story(like I did) don’t bother. However, if you’re one of those people who like arcade type games or horde mode I’d recommend it, but wait till it’s like 5 dollars or less, it’s really not worth more than that to me. Each wave gets tougher, hell, I almost didn’t even finish the one round I played cause there were so many enemies.

Must…Not…Buy…Peace Walker!

… I’m so close to caving and buying Peace Walker for the PS3, but my back log is so long as it is, I don’t want to add more to it. 😡 But then again, it’s only ten bucks and Sony pracicaly gave me ten bucks last month so its almost as if it’s Sony buying it for me instead. Besides, when will I get another chance to buy this for that price or lower? I mean after all the console gen is almost coming to an end so if it comes out for like $5 in 2 years chances are I wont care for this game anymore by that time. @_@ Decisions decisions, I’ll think about it for a little more, the sale will still be there tomorrow anyway.

Finally Beat Reckoning!

Gawsh, what a boring experience. It wasn’t as disappointing as Dead Island, but it sure was boring. I finished at around 17 hours and level 22. If you’re into a bunch of fetch quest and other mmo like quest this game is for you. After about 3 hours into the game I stopped paying attention to the story because its just as boring as its quest.Anyway with that out of the way I’ll most likely try to go through Sonic Generations this weekend since I hear its such a short game. Bah, who am I kidding, I’ll be spending most of my time on Soul Sacrifice.

Picked Up My Copy of Soul Sacrifice! (Plus life Issues!)

Woo, I can’t wait till Thursday so I can finally play it! Playstation is also having a really neat sale for a majority of the characters in Battle Royale. I’m thinking about getting Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker for the PS3 so I can actually use one of its main features. Plus I might be able to actually beat the bosses legit. I’ll admit it, I cheated to beat the bosses, they were hard as hell, felt cheap in my opinion. But, before I actually start to consider it I want to beat kingdom of Amalur first(which is very boring by the way.) Shouldn’t take too long since I’m up to the second to last quest.

Also on an unrelated note, I’ve been having some serious ankle pains for the last month and a half. The doctor originally have me pain killers and told me to come back if the pain continues but me being as lazy as I am, i brushed it off. But it’s gotten really bad lately, even when I’m sitting or something I get a kind of burning sensation near the area. I made an appointment to go see whatever the foot doctor calls themselves, so hopefully it’s nothing too serious, and I can get rid of this pain once and for all.
