Tales of a junkyard Jedi

So for those of you paying attention I’m trying to reclaim my sweet little gamer score. I mentioned last time that I was playing through on the easy as pie game star wars the force unleashed. Thankfully I finally took down the fetish freak Vader and his pervy old master err… the master.
Well anyway thanks to an amazingly fun glitch my achievement at the end was actually just for playing on apprentice? I’m not sure how it happened because even if I started on apprentice I still changed the difficulty later to really freaking hard but hey who cares. Just means now I get the fun of playing the game again on super hard difficulty ….yay. Any who as I progress on this stress filled game of "OH MY GOD YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS!" moments I have now arrived at Paratus.

This ugly ass freak is actually a lot harder than his termite body would suggest. The annoying thing is he’s another damn bad guy that knows I’m whoring out for achievements and he’s been dangling my hopes in front of me before smashing them with one of his many many arms. I got close a couple of times and it’s frustrated me to the point my heart almost burst out my chest screaming to beat him.

I know some of the secrets to get this punk beat down now so I’ll have to try again later. I’m so tired right now and I think my thumbs are blistering, I can’t cry anymore so I’ll definitely need a rest before trying it again.

Wish me luck folks!

My quest begins!

For a long time I considered not doing this but when I accidentally stumbled on a guys video on YouTube where he does nothing but talk about what toys he likes to play with I figured screw it I’m doing this.

A while back I had my gamer score wiped because I didn’t look before I clicked, it’s a long uninteresting story so we’ll just sidestep it. Anyway the score loss didn’t bother me so I continued to play but then it slowly nagged at me and now I’ve decided it’s time to make up the loss. I’m deleting and replaying all my old games in order to get back my achievements, there’s probably an easier way of doing it but I like this idea better.

star-wars-force

I’m starting the quest with an easy to play through game, with no annoying online game required achievements, star wars the force unleashed. I thought the simplest way to get this done was to play it through on the hardest difficulty first then collect all the other achievements on a nice easy level reducing my stress levels, I was wrong.star_wars_3prtinterv

Turns out that the nice guys over at Lucas arts decided that hard had to mean makes the player want to hurt things due to the pent up rage. I’ve already killed 6 times because of this game, anyway I’m now on the final level facing off against the worlds scariest asthmatic Darth Vader. I’ve faced this masked joker before and I could usually wipe the floor with him but I think he knows I’m out for achievements and he’s holding out on me…dick.

He keeps getting cocky and bitch slapping me with things around the room, the only reason I’m here just now is because I’m scared to play again in case my foot goes through the T.V. I think I’ve figured out the tricks though so I’m going to kick some metallic ass.

After this all I have left is the master and then a choice …sure hope I didn’t spoil the end of the game for anyone. Anyway the games biggest jump is over so after this crap it’s the usual kill this many people or use this many moves etc the collecting stuff always annoys me though so I don’t know if I’ll get round to it. If anyone wants to suggest the next game I should get achievements for let me know or let me know what you think about this section of the blog.

Right I’m off to kick ass wish me luck.

Updates and quick news

max_payne_3_logo

First thing in my quick news update is the announcement from Rockstar that not only will there be a Max Payne 3 but that it is to be released this year! The game has been announced with a short description of the story and although it follows the same lines as the other Max Payne games,regarding bloody violence and firefights, you’re no longer with the police. Max has left the force and even New York but still “searches for truth” in the third installment. My guess is when the action happens and the bullets start flying you’ll have to deal with cops trying to take you in as well as gun totting bad men.

Next on the news list is the eagerly anticipated game Ghostbusters, a short while ago I mentioned how the game was set for release after some turbulent times. This update is just to say the game is definitely on it’s way! Atari recently released some game play footage and this game looks like a real hard hitter. The graphics are immersive and the action looks set to keep players on their toes throughout each level. As well as letting us see the amazing finished package of the game it also shows some extra things about the game some may not have known before. It explains the HUD and how your proton backpack works, just saying that gets me excited. The HUD is much like the dead space HUD combined with that of most shooters. The pack has a health gauge and a heat meter, if you’re pack over heats you need to wait for it to cool before you can reload and use it again. So keep an eye on your power and heat meters folks reloading and cooling in a jam is a sure way to make your ass the next ghost in the game. For those interested in seeing the trailer and finding out more about the game play and what the game looks like here’s the link.

That’s right kids Bioshock that amazing fps with a little twist of horror is coming back, because to be frank you just weren’t scared enough the first time. Now the success of many games is measured in a lot of different ways but no matter how you view it to make a movie out of a game is a sure sign it’s a winner and that’s what happened to Bioshock. The sequel Bioshock 2 set for release soon and is already picking up hype and excitement, which is no mystery really considering they have announced big sister. big-sister

Yeah I said it big sister, you had little sister in the original well in Bioshock 2 she’s all grown up and has very much decided to follow her big daddy’s footsteps.  Look at it, terrifying and as I’m sure many of you have noticed smaller than big daddy, my guess is sister’s going to be fast, and when something looks that nasty you really don’t want it to be able to chase you.

As exciting as all this is however the Bioshock franchise has hit one snag in it’s rise that snag being a halt for the movie. The reason for this being the budget, it’s going to cost way too much money to make the movie and so currently the director Gore Verbinski, pirates of the Caribbean director, has said they are trying to figure out a way to make the movie more budget friendly. Gore also promised the movie wouldn’t follow the fate of the halo adaptation but time will tell.

 legorockband

That’s right this is no joke oddly enough the two major games Rockband and Lego are for some odd reason joining up? I’m not sure how that happened though I expect it’s some kind of drunken mistake. Odder still is the fact it sounds pretty good, Lego haven’t said much but what they have announced sounds pretty good. Lego have said that much like the game Rockband players will be able to create their own rockers, although this time you’ll also be able to make rockers, managers, sound guys, etc and change them whenever you like. ilmScreen008 Keeping within the fun of other Lego games and their ability to not get serious about gaming, they have also announced that players will have to collect bricks from each gig to create vehicles before they can travel to the next. As if that’s not enough they also say “Play killer riffs to destroy a giant robot, summon a storm, and demolish a skyscraper using the power of rock!”Now I’m not entirely sure how this works or what it means but it’s the one line that makes me want to play this game.

 

fallout-3-1010

Finally Bethesda have shown they are capable of listening to their fans! Now if you haven’t played fallout 3 but you plan too not only are you really late but you’re also reading something you don’t want to. Seriously look away now if you don’t want any spoilers, for those of us who have played let me fill you in. Fallout has released some good add ons for the game in their DLC like the pitt and operation anchorage. However when you get to the end of the game you’re actually at the end no more playing for you, so you better make sure you get your quests and bobble heads collected right? wrong. With fallouts new DLC broken steel your game doesn’t end, this is the spoiler kids, you can choose to send someone in to the room instead of you and keep playing. You’ll be a bastard but you’ll be alive, or you can go in yourself even if you do this you don’t die! You wake up in a hospital a few weeks later and you can do what you like. so you can continue to explore to your hearts content, look for bobble heads, kill ghouls, trade whatever and you don’t have to worry about radiated water any more so break out those swimming trunks.

Of course the add on also comes with it’s own quests and tasks as well as added achievements for all you who love to improve that gamer score. The quests involve things such as dealing with what’s left with the enclave and other troublesome fools, oh and your level cap has been moved up to 30 so there’s more reason to get out there. The last DLC was announced around the same time as the announcement for fallouts new game fallout New Vegas. Nothing much has been said about this game other than it still has rpg roots and is being looked after by the people of obsidian, the team who worked on the original fallout games. More news is expected to be released at E3 but we might get lucky and find out something before. All in all fallout fever is back to a high and people are desperate to get their hands on the newest DLC and with scenes like this it’s easy to see why.
