Counter the strike, gentlemen!

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 19 April 2007 03:19 (A review of Counter-Strike)

This game is fairly well done. The guns and maps are great.

The strange thing is there is no single player, really. No campaign, no missions, no nothing. You just turn on the system, and bam, you are ready to play. But other than that it is pretty good.

The Pros are.....that it's just a good game. A good shooter for the X-box.

The Cons are that 1. the bots are GODLIKE on high levels (not just "good", they are too perfect to be believable), not to mention that they always know where you are, even if you are hiding in a vent, on top of the level, etc, 2. there isn't even any multiplayer other than online or system linking, and 3. There's alot of "spraying" online with the silenced M4. Not really a problem with the game, just the people that play it.

Overall, I think it's worth it, but I'm a sucker for a good shooter. If you are always playing with friends over at your house, this is not the game for you. If you are a lone player, and love going online a ton, this is it.

------Extra stuff--------

Another fun thing to do is to just play around with the game settings. One of my personal favorites is to set it to Miami, be on terrorists, set 8 bots against you, make it where they can't buy anything (they're stuck with knife), and turn on friendly fire. Buy a good gun, or run around and use the knife and kill the hostages. Then run outside doing your best to avoid the enemy bots. Jump up on top of the van, then to the lamppost, and enjoy watching the Counter-terrorist bots jumping at you, knifing each other to death. Mwaha.

Another fun thing to do is simply give yourself some teammates, make it where bots can't buy anything, turn the money way up, and keep buying magnums and throwing them in front of your teammates! Funny to watch!

---------------------

I guess I've been rambling....the point is that this game is totally fun every once and a while, but you can majorly get burnt out on it if you play it too much. So if you have can only have one game, pick something else. If you see Counter Strike lying on a shelf at the store, buy it and have fun!

(Thanks to my bro for the fun "gametypes")

So this is where Superman came from...

This show was pretty good for the first few seasons but it's getting a little weird....that's just my personal opinion...

Still, watch it and love it.

1 2 3 4 GO! TEEN TITANS!

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 18 April 2007 10:32 (A review of Teen Titans)

This show is awesome. Teen superheroes, what more could you ask? The powers and enemies and villains and fighting and romance are all just awesome. I think this was the best cartoon on for quite some time.

FRENZY!

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 18 April 2007 10:13 (A review of Fuzion Frenzy)

This game is a great party game. The mini games rock, it's fun just to play around.

One problem: there are only 3 guy characters.....

Most excellent.

Posted : 10 years, 4 months ago on 3 April 2007 11:19 (A review of Five Score And Seven Years Ago)

I was ready to kill to get the new RK cd.

This one's pretty awesome. Ya got some good vocals on "Plead the fifth", ya got the ever-so-catchy "Must have done something right", ya got the softish sound of "Give until there's nothing left", ya got the awesome intro and more of a rocky "Devastation and reform", ya got the very almost-out-of-place-but-still-good "Faking my own suicide" (which is almost country, but is still awesome), ya got "Crayons can melt on us for all I care" which is short sweet and to the point, ya got the uppy "Up and up", and lastly, you have the the 11 minute long "Deathbed" about a man who is about to die and recalls his life. Also, Jon Foreman (lead singer of Switchfoot) sings at the end of this one.

I admit, this one has a few too many songs about girls and such, but still a great addition to the RK fan's collection. Maybe not the best yet, but good enough to buy and listen to.

This game owns.

Posted : 10 years, 5 months ago on 27 February 2007 03:46 (A review of WarioWare: Smooth Moves)

Much like the GC version, this game owns. First of all, the humor is AWESOME. I cracked up sooooo hard on many of the games, and all of the form teaching pages. Just as random, except it gets you moving out of your seat. MOST AWESOME.

The bad part is that the game is short. Like 5 hours. At least earning all of the temples and such. Getting all the micogames takes a while, and all the pose cards is hard though.

Some more pros is that it's multiplayerability. True, you have to earn multi, but it's worth it. You can have 12, that's right 12 people playing at once. The bad part, they use one remote. You've gotta pass it around. Another bad part about the multi is that survival does not do all the games.

I still highly recommend it. If you like Wario Ware, or want to improve your reflexes, this game is for you.

Oh, and on of the best parts about this game is that they can slap a Wario nose and mustache on anything: tvs, walruses, scorpians, swords, you name it, it has a nose.

WOWZERZ!

Posted : 10 years, 5 months ago on 27 February 2007 03:37 (A review of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo)

This show is soooooo random. Make sure you watch it at at least midnight. And don't try to understand it, just watch it and be amazed.

OH......MY.....GOSH!

Posted : 10 years, 7 months ago on 9 January 2007 03:46 (A review of Thr3e)

This book is amazing. If you've read other Ted Dekker books, you'll love this one. He keeps his style of suspense, a little bit of romance, and a ton of phsycology.

This book will seriously make your head swim. Within the last five chapters, you will begin looking at the other 25 chapters differently. You'll begin suspecting one thing, and then just as you are sure that's what it is, Ted throws you for a loop and changes everything.

I have to admit, it took me a long time because the first part of the book is very slow moving. But let me encourage you this, if you are reading this and it seems like it's getting long, keep reading! The most plot change seriously does take place in the last 5 chapters!

While I personally like "Blink" more, "Thr3e" is DEFINATELY worth taking a look at, especially with the movie coming out. ;)

BUNNIES!

Posted : 10 years, 7 months ago on 6 January 2007 05:31 (A review of Rayman: Raving Rabbids)

This game is awesome. The plot isn't that good, adventure is awesome, the multiplayer is kinda bad cause most games can't play all four people at once. The bunnies, on the other hand, are AWESOME!

"DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"

PWNAGE!

Posted : 10 years, 7 months ago on 5 January 2007 11:18 (A review of And the Land of Fake Believe)

This Cd is awesome. You got the weird tracks, and you got the slow songs, where the vocals are beautiful. And you have the cough countoff. This CD rocks my socks off.
