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!

Busy Week!

I should start by apologizing for my absence, can’t believe I neglected my baby for a week. You all have  my word it’s not going to happen again, anyway on with our gaming news! The biggest news of the week has to be the shock announcement that Atari has pulled out of E3. After the news broke rumors began to circulate about financial difficulties with the gaming giant, at first backed up by their deal with Sony over Ghostbusters, these were later confirmed by Atari’s announcement their European department was shutting down. It looks like these financial difficulties are hitting everyone hard, but could this spell the end for Atari? We’ll just have to wait and see.

 

Splinter_Cell_Conviction

The good guys at Ubisoft were nice enough to email me and let me know that they have now set up a splinter cell conviction site. To be honest people don’t click it expecting too much, there’s one teaser vid giving you about 30 seconds of Fisher talking. Mostly about his past and the agreement that he made with the government sounding oddly like the Bourne franchise.

Anyway it has other content set for time release so it’s worth checking out, point being the game looks set to finally be released this year. It sure will be an interesting Christmas that’s all I can say.

 

screenshot_8878 To help build the anxiety for Red Faction THQ were good enough to go ahead and announce that not only will red faction have a multiplayer feature but they’re also giving everyone a multiplayer demo. The demo will be coming out on May 21st but considering the type of game this is will a multiplayer feature be a good thing or just something to try and grab the competitive gamers interest?

Either way the demo has 2 maps, 9 weapons and a collection of other goodies so considering it’s free it’s something to stop buy the marketplace for.

 

crackdown

Microsoft decided to come out and shock everyone by announcing that there will be a new premium crackdown theme available on Xbox live marketplace. A new theme isn’t worth news but considering it’s a PREMIUM theme for a game released 2 years ago that warrants attention. Now Microsoft said they were just wanting to let their fans connect with their favorite games and so created the new theme. They also said they had nothing else to announce at this time regarding future projects. My guess is Crackdown 2 will be getting unveiled at E3, do you really think we can’t connect the dots Microsoft?

I know there’s more news like mass effect and COD so I’ll be back with more info on that later!
