Phew!, time is flying already this year is it not?. I keep meaning to come here and jot a little about what has been going on for me this year, but to be honest it has not been the best start to a year I have ever had. Anyway swiftly moving on what have I been up to? you may or may not ask, well I’ll tell you ;).
I have spent waaay too much time playing Call of Duty Black ops on the 360. I finished the single player campaign on normal and I am now replaying it on veteran. A lot of people have said that Blops is not as good as Modern Warfare 2 which I cannot confirm or deny as I never played any of the modern warfare variety’s of CoD. Having said that I very much enjoyed the single player in Black Ops and in my opinion why have a long-winded intricate story of a single player adventure when most players are only really interested in the multiplayer anyway. I remember way back when Call of duty United Offensive released on PC I installed it and played multiplayer for 4 hours a night for at least 5 months before even bothering with the offline single player game. I guess what I am saying in a roundabout way is that I am very happy with Black Ops, for me it was bang on the money with a variety of different theatres of war to play in which in turn offered a variety of different weapons to play around with and a fast-moving and in my opinion quite compelling little story.
Also I have scratched the surface of Red Dead Redemption which is probably one of the best polished and amazing looking console games I have ever played it is so very cinematic which is a win for me, I always want the games I play to feel like action movies. The sunsets!! omg! I want to play the theme tune to Bonanza and ride off into it every time the day ends. Multiplayer is a blast too. I had a quick bash with a couple of my buds from Xbox live,It was all very hilarious with lots of poor stage-coach driving possibly due to over doing it on the tequila in the saloon maybe. Aslo I now realise where the term “riding shot gun” originated from lol.
Finally about two weeks ago my brother-in-law gifted me a months subscription to my old online haunt Everquest 2. Probably a nefarious attempt in dragging me back in just in time for the new expansion on the 22nd of Feb, Destiny of Velious. I have mostly been running battlegrounds in-game on my 90 Kerran Warden Pheolix in order to get my hands on some nice fabled BG armor. I ran a few of the latest instances on my 90 Gnome Conjuror Inferius, but I know all those a little too well for them to be all that exciting now. It was still fun to catch up with the guys in my guild The Knights of Honour on the Guk server and wax lyrical while meeting out mass destruction.
So there it is I finally touched base with my blog in this new year of 2011 :D.
Heres to many more!
Be well, do good work and keep in touch with your friends!
