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.
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.
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.
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.
Jeez, this game is so repetitive and it doesn’t even try to hide it. You literally do the same missions for the same people. I’m doing it for the third(and hopefully last) time. Thank god I got this game for like 2 dollars or some shit like that, I would’ve felt so ripped off if i spent $15 on this. Shame too since the original Alan Wake is such an amazing experience. Well for what it’s worth the story continues two years after the originals ending, at least the story isn’t bad. I don’t want to spoil the game for anyone since Alan Wake is a very story driven series but Remedy’s idea for American Nightmare doesn’t translate so well into a game, hell, I don’t even think it’ll work on television or movies either. For those that have played the game, you know what I mean.
With this generation almost coming to an end I want to make some best and worst of the generation awards. I don’t know if I should wait till September though since that’ll be the month where the last few games I’ll be purchasing this generation are released. Besides, I haven’t gotten around to buying The Last of Us, I hear it’s a nearly flawless game. Then again, I’d rather make the list while the games I’d pick are still fresh in my mind. Maybe I’ll just start by posting the worse games of the generations, I highly doubt any games that I want later on this month will top how bad the games on my list are. Oh yea, tomorrow I’m going to go to school to get my whole graduation shit checked out, hopefully it all goes well; wish me luck.
By the way, the list will contain the games from Wii, DS, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, PC(games that have come out in like the last 6 years or so). For some reason my friends don’t consider the PSP and DS in the same generation as the WiiPS360, but I do. So yea, till tomorrow or whenever I feel like doing it 😛
(Excuse any spelling errors and shit like that, I’m typing this up on my tablet with this new case that I got which has a bluetooth keyboard. I
Now that school is done I’ve just been relaxing and playing some games. Although not as much as I usually do since E3 was this week, overall it was a great show this year. Plus, I’ve been busy going to the gym, trying to get in better shape. So far I’ve gotten around to beating Bastion and stealthy completed Sly Cooper 4 Thieves in Time. Sly Cooper’s final boss was trash, the entire fight was quick time events. I despise those with a passion, hopefully we see less of those next-gen. I’m still playing through Soul Sacrifice, I’ve been neglecting my poor Vita(and so has Sony if E3 is anything to go by). All that I got left to do is beat Magusar, story wise that is. I still got a bunch of multiplayer quest that I haven’t beaten. I noticed a lot of people online only do sacrifice, it’s pretty annoying since I’m trying to go 99/1, but oh well.
I’ve ordered me a new game too, Persona 4: Golden. I pretty much already know what happens plot wise since I’ve seen the anime but I hear it’s a great game even if you already know the plot. I hope it’s not too grindy like Persona 3 was. I mean I’ll still beat it, it’s just that if it is, it’ll take me a lot longer. So since I’m getting Golden I thought I should try to beat Persona 4: Arena. I’ve been having it since Black Friday and I only bought it for the story mode, I don’t really like fighting games so I don’t care for the online or any of that. While I’ll be playing that on my PS3 I’ll also be playing Max Payne on PC. By the way, Max Payne is HARD! Holy shit, man. It’s so hard I had to switch the game over to easy. I really suck at shooting games. Normally I like to only play two games at a time but I figured what the hell. They’re all different genres so when I get bored with playing a fighting game I’ll switch on over to a shooter, and once I get bored with that I’ll go to an action RPG; you know, mix it up a bit. Oh, I’m also going to get my Galaxy Note 8.0 tomorrow as well! Hopefully the store has them in stock. Another thing is that I’ve noticed all my friends are nerds. They never want to do anything, they’d just rather stay home all day and play games. I love games as much as the next guy but damn, its Summer, let’s go out and have some fun too. Note to self: Make some new friends.
