Britt5091 Origins: I love my new toy :-D

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.

I love my new toy 😀

June 12, 2009

I am McLovin the PS3. Granted I haven’t had it for more than 24 hours but so far its made a very nice impression on me 🙂

I was going to buy a game, but I decided since they are a lil spendy and I just spent a butt-ton of money, I would rent some first. I jotted down the games you all recommended and ran to Hollywood Video. I got Uncharted and LBP to start out with. I played LBP first for a few minutes, but then I swear Uncharted was winking at me so I put the sack dude away and fired up Uncharted.

So far I LOVE this game. It was a little slow for a while. But now I have a handgun and an AK47, and I’m using them, so its aaalll good. I’m not that far-just at the Fortress. It’s especially intense for me because I have a minor fear of heights lol. There was one specific angle that really got me. It’s after you get into the first window at the Fortress, you walk through a corridor, then you need to exit through another window to proceed further. Anyway,as soon as you approach that second window, the camera shifts and it’s like BAM 349839 stories above the ground looking down. It’s definitely a palm sweater. The only thing I had a little trouble with is when the camera angle shifts while you’re scaling something or running along a narrow edge, making the need to adjust the left analog stick so poor Nate just doesnt run off the cliff. I’ve had some pretty gnarly falls so far, but I think I got it down.

Oh yeah. Before I even started playig LBP, I decided to try Home as I’ve heard mixed reviews…

…okay so like 80% says it sucks and 20% say it really sucks.

Anyway, I created my basic blond avatar and left my oceanside condo to venture out. My phone rang so I left her standing in the plaza. About 5 minutes later I came back…and poor girl. She had been verbally raped so many times and I hadn’t been there to help her run away. Sadddd.

I finally managed to get to the mall and was blown away when I found that Sony actually wants us to spend REAALLL money on clothes(I’m assuming the furniture costs too? I didn’t even bother checking it out) for your avatar. Seriously? Okay I admit I’m new to this whole Home thing, but do people spend that much time there and care enough that they will spend money on clothes for their avatar? Enlighten me please.

Hey…I’m sure some of you have been around since Home first hatched. Has it improved at all since launch? Or is it pretty much the same?

It’s a beautiful day today in Seattle, so I’m off for a run ^_^ LATER!

Britt’s Note:

Yeah, how about that PS Home? What’s even going on with it anymore? Weren’t there plans to like, revamp it and make it a worldly and magical place? Or maybe it’s already worldly and magical, I dunno, I haven’t signed on in forever. I mean, do people seriously meet up in PS Home? Like, OHAI let’s go meet and chat via PS Home! I’ll meet you by the fake fountain and we can watch digital boobs parade by and ask A/S/L all day!

Okay, I’ll be honest. I have nothing to say about this old blog post so I’m gonna stop writing now.

    You could’ve checked out Home and done a comparison of the suckage. 😛
