My two days with Halo: Reach.

with one comment

So it has not actually been two whole days since Reach has come out, but still. My two days with Reach have been… different, and I actually enjoyed the different it brought to me. I was leaving the large frustration of a game that is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Noob tubes, Commando, One Man Army/Danger Close, spawn tubes in Hardcore Search, the lovely UMP.45, tryhards with the Intervention, and ridiculous lag. I ventured away from all of that to come to a new experience, well sort of new.

I played Halo 3 apparently 240 some games according to Bungie. I remember like… 5 of them. But apparently I played that much Halo when I had Halo 3. When it came down to it I actually did not like Halo 3. Then I picked up The Orange Box and played Team Fortress 2 on that for so many hours. I would say about 100+ hours was put onto that game from when I bought it up until I bought Modern Warfare 2. I currently have about 37 days played on Modern Warfare 2, a 10th prestige level 70, and enough skill to say that I am legit 10th. The prestige lobbies in Modern Warfare 2 had everyone that was a 10th at any point in time labeled as a 10th prestige hacker. Another thing I disliked about Modern Warfare 2 were the constant messages from 10 year olds saying, “Message to all friends and recent players my friend is hosting a 10th prestige lobby, 1600 microsoft points. Message me back for an invite.” Every 30 minutes I get about six messages saying that, and I wish I was kidding.

Anyhow, Halo: Reach has an incredible multi-player with an apparently short campaign. I have not finished campaign but I have played a ton of multi-player. When you first boot up your Xbox 360 and pop Halo: Reach in and you get past the title screen, you get to customize your Spartan/Elite. With customization you can buy armor, things to put on your helmet, among other things you can buy. You can put colors onto your Spartan/Elite, mine being violet and I believe green or a yellow. You have a wide variety in how you can create what type of emblem you would like, mine being a rooster with something behind it that makes it look like it is wearing a hat. Once you get done with that you get to look at what is the menu screen. Your choices are; Matchmaking, Campaign, Firefight and Theater, and more than likely Options/Settings.

Of course when I got home from the midnight release I came home did all that and went straight to Matchmaking. Being a Call of Duty person I had to of course figure out what the hell I was doing. I can know figure out when someone will get killed, and I do enjoy when someone starts shooting at me and I turn on them. For those of you who do not know what turning on means, it means when someone starts to shoot you from behind and you turn around and kill them. I cannot tell you how many times I have done this in Halo: Reach already. There are a bunch of game types including Slayer, Invasion, Big Team, and some others. I however really like to play the Free For All playlist (that is not what it is called but it is basically a Free For All every game.) because I can be by myself and not worry about my team taking my kills.

The biggest flaw I see with Matchmaking is one big thing: if you quit a certain amount of times for any reason besides network problems, you get temporarily banned from Matchmaking. This is incredibly weird and incredibly unneeded. Yes rage quitting is a problem but not when the problem is Bungie themselves. When I play the Free For All playlist I want to play Slayer, and not Oddball, Invasion, or any other game types. When the game type has been chosen you can only back out of that lobby when the game has started. So last night I kept getting things that were not Slayer so I kept backing out. Today I have been in danger of getting the temporary ban hammer basically all day. So I decided to go into Firefight because Firefight is really fun. I accidentally betray someone and they boot me. That boot temporarily bans me. This honestly is the only issue I have with Reach so far. The guns are balanced, and you can get kills by aiming at their head or just plain being smarter than them and out smarting them.

All in all: Grab this game if you are tired of Modern Warfare 2, a Halo fan, or just want something to pass the time for a little bit.

It is an amazing game that I can see myself playing for the next two months until Call of Duty: Black Ops comes out on November 9th.

Fort Gay.

with one comment

Believe it or not this is a real place.  It is a town in West Virginia, which is west… of Virginia. Now that the geography lesson is over, let us dive into why I am talking about Fort Gay. A man by the name of Josh Moore who is 26 and unemployed lives here and used to be an industrial laborer. Josh is also a gamer on Xbox Live, and put the place he lives as, “Fort Gay, WV” in his profile under location.  Seeing as how this is a real place, he cannot get into any trouble right? No, wrong. His account was banned because of the fact he lives in Fort Gay, WV. He called Xbox Live many a time to try and reason with them, even gave them his zip code for them to Google just so he could get his account back. Also he went and talked to the mayor of Fort Gay to try and talk Xbox Live into getting his account back. Xbox also instituted a new rule allowing people to have their sexual beliefs in their gamertags. Josh did get his account back along with an apology.

To be honest, if you can have your sexual beliefs in your gamertag, then it should not be any difference to put it into your profile.

This takes “Facebook stalking” to a whole new level.

leave a comment »

While on CNN I discovered an article that says Facebook is testing out a new thing where people can subscribe to someone and see everything that they post.  It is almost like the “Subscribe via SMS” thing they have, but this actually notifies you of everything you post instead of just statuses. This will alert you of a new link they post, status, etc. This is kind of creepy. Although it can be used to keep track of your kids on Facebook. But if you have to keep track of your children on Facebook, why do they have a Facebook? Hmmm. This is just going to make me think even more about adding random people as well. Now if I add them they can subscribe to see every little thing I do? That is just not right. But when you think about it they can technically see everything  I post. My point being: this is going to give you a notification in your upper left like it were someone commenting on your status or the such. This to me just takes “Facebook stalking” to a whole other level. I hope they do not let people who are not your friends be able to subscribe to every little thing you do. If that does happen, I will probably delete my Facebook.

The coolest thing I have ever seen.

leave a comment »

When I talked about the new iPod’s a couple of days ago I mentioned that the Nano had a belt clip attached to it. I never mentioned, or even though about doing what this guy did. He took a wrist watch strap and made a watch out of the Nano. I think a couple of you as well as many other people are going, “Well hey, why didn’t I think of that?” Here is the picture of it;

And here is the link to that article; http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/06/visualized-the-apple-iwatch/

I have to admit that this makes me want the Nano just that much more.

The Internet, and you.

leave a comment »

Yes that is right boys and girls. This fancy little thingamajig we call, “the internet” is a dangerous place that is full of danger. Remember when your parents told you, “Never talk to strangers!”? Well, the internet is a big stranger danger. How so? Think about it. Someone could be watching your every move. Tracking every key stroke you make, and yes, people do do that. It is very creepy I know but it does happen. Along with password changing, email stealing, social networking phishing, and to an extent even virus sending.

There is also the biggest most important rule of the Internet that I think everyone needs to know, especially on Facebook. If you post it, the world is able to see it. What does this mean? If you post a picture of yourself naked on the internet, you had better expect the world to see it. If you do not want people to see a certain picture, do not be an idiot and post it. No one wants to hear you bitch after everyone calls you a dirty slut for posting a naked picture of yourself. It is common sense, and if you do not possess the common sense to not post naked pictures of yourself on the internet, then you actually should not be on the internet. You should probably be in school because you honestly should just be doing something productive besides doing something that can hurt you in the long run. That was not shot toward anyone in particular, maybe porn stars, but they enjoy being shown all over the internet.

Basically what I am trying to say is; the internet is not a toy, do not use it like it were a toy. It will end up screwing you over in the process. 4Chan or popularly known as /b/ is famous for showing you how much of a toy the internet is not.

Anyways, comment and subscribe if you like this or any of my other posts.
