Britt5091 Origins: Gaming updates, etc!

 

 

Welcome to Britt5091: Origins, where I dig up old blog posts I used to write for IGN’s community under the username Britt5091. Some posts may make you giggle, some may make your eyes bleed, and some may make you stroke your beard in a pensive manner. All you need to know is that these posts, no matter how terrible some of them may be, ultimately lead to everything I do now.

 

Gaming updates, etc!

June 23,2009

I’m suuuch a girl. I’m sure you noticed my icon is changed yet again. My cousin was experimenting with Microsoft Paint, and insisted that I use his creation (aka crop and invert colors..haha I love that kid). I’m keeping it no matter how much I’ll want to change it down the road. If ever do, this is my promise: I’ll pay everyone on my friends list 20 bucks. Don’t leave me comments trying to persuade me, it will be frowned upon 😉

But really I haven’t posted anything since my mild meltdown on Friday upon finding I got a killer deal when I bought Uncharted (!). So here are a few updates:

Uncharted: BEAT IT. Mhhmm that’s right, I beat it like a red-headed stepchild. I really enjoyed everything about it, even the excessive gunfights that Miller complained about a little. *SPOILERS* Sooo the predictable, repetitive pirate gunfights were replaced by survival run and gun from the cursed Spaniards that look like something straight out of Doom. Hmmm. The game had a pretty realistic storyline up until that point (considering), so I was a little surprised. I don’t mind the direction Naughty Dog took it. I think I’m in the minority with that. *END SPOILERS* Purposely I hadn’t read any of the preview articles for Among Thieves before I completed the game, but I just overloaded my brain with Uncharted sequel goodness. Needless to say I’m pumped. As you should all be.

WoW: Mmmyeah. I think I’m going to lose that bet. I’m not going to say I’m addicted, because I went a whole TWO weeks without playing it, and from what I’ve been told that’s unheard of. But argh its fun, and it’s holding me over until I get a new PS3 game. Before I really knew the basic ropes of WoW, I saw a little gnome dude (real player) just minding his own business. See I just hit level 10 and thought I was a badass, so I picked a fight and challenged him to a duel. Turns out he was level 80. Moving on?

PS3: I need to pick up a new game. Part of me wants to try Lost Odyssey for the 360 but something tells me that game delivers hours upon hours and let’s face it, I probably wouldn’t finish it. I’m too giddy and eager to play another kickass PS3 game. I’m either thinking Dead Space, MGS4, Killzone 2, Ratchent and Clank. Those were the main ones I got recommendations for. Hell why not get them all?! $$$$= Reason why. So I gotta pick one!

Myspace: Yeah, another reason why I’m such a girl. I made one. I had a pimped out one from high school but I forgot the password, the e-mail address Myspace knows me by no longer exists, and my personal info states I’m a 46 male from the Western Sahara (don’t ask). So it’s pretty much in the twighlight zone.

It’s pretty blah right now (translation: I’ve been too lazy to add a lot to it) but maybe this weekend I’ll put some more shit up. The link is on my profile page. It’s private, but that’s really only because I can’t have it ‘public’ as I work in a ‘professional environment blahblah’ and can’t have people from work snooping around! [face_angel]

Also, for ConceptWhat, FYI here is the info I came up for those two games. Average prices right now…
MGS: Twin Snakes – Used, complete $44. Sealed, brand new $208. Disc only $37.
Uncharted- Used, complete $38. Sealed, brand new $68.

I’ll do another update on those games in a few months for ya!

Britt’s Note

If you found yourself going “BWUUUH?” when I started talking about changing my icon and all that jazz, let me explain: On the IGN blogs you can have avatars. I changed my avatar even though I had a bet with my buddy beezball that I wouldn’t. There is your explanation.

And, HA. Myspace. HA HA HA.

Also, HA HA HA to the fact the only PS3 game I played above was Dead Space.
