Halo

Was playing Halo 3 today, team slayer on snowbound. Grenade came behind me and blew me up, and smash my head in to the ceiling, it’s actually pretty cool moment the shield got depleted.  I dunno kinda cool i think 😛

“What? What’s wrong? Why you looking at me strange?”


E3 -Xbox/Microsoft

incase you haven’t noticed, E3 is going on right now, or rather was going on, but anyway, i wanna talk about a few things.

first of all. I, myself is a proud owner of a halo 3 edition xbox 360, which i love very much (no red ring of death yet, thank god, knock on wood). Something Microsoft announced at E3 really bugged me, the “new xbox experience”, which is basically a new interface for the xbox operating system software.

why is it bugging me? because first of all, i love the blade interface for the xbox right now, it’s really good, nice and clean, nothing fancy, works well, and i really love the customization aspect of it too. from the announcement at E3, the new-xbox-experience-interface-OS-thingy has no apparent customizability, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have that ability, maybe it does they jsut didn’t show it off.

second of all, the new interface is stupid, well not stupid but really really childish-looking, like the Wii (by no mean saying the Wii is childish and dumb). but i just think Microsoft copying the look of wii is not very cool, and that avatar thing is just plain stupid, what’s wrong with the gamer card? i love the gamer card, it’s freagging awesome.

third of all, seems like Microsoft is really, really, really tying to reach out to a bigger audience with the new stuff, i mean yeah it’s cool, but i’m not too psyched about it because i’m more of a hardcore gamer type of gamer (if that even makes sence), and frankly i think with all the new menus, flip thingys, and stuff the casual gamer or not so techy gamers might even get confused by the new menus, but that’s just how i feel.

and lastly it just doesn’t look or feel like xbox anymore, it feels like some other generic, badly designed, trying to copy others but fell short game consoles. i like the xbox the way it is, it doesn’t need to be changed!!!!!!!!!

okay, now let me say something good about the “new-xbox-experience’, what i like about it is first of all, netflix. that’s really cool cause you can stream movies on your xbox, and apparently it’s free for xbox live gold-ers (i’m not too sure about it).

also, also very awesome, the live party thing. it’s really cool, i love that, bring your friends a lone do whatever it is that your doing, watch movies, share photos, and play games together, that is just awesome!!

i’m very very excited about this game because it looks really good, and it looks like it’s gonna be really cool, also it looks very refreshing and a new kind of style, very excited.

Prince of Persia: next Gen

right okay, this one is kinda interesting cause there are people who didn’t like this title at all because it is soooo different from the preview games, but i find this game’s art direction is really awesome, and it’s really beautiful, it looks like a moving painting. i am looking forward to this game.

Halo Wars

i have to say, i didn’t really like the first one that much, but there’s a bunch of cool stuff in this one we’ll see how this one will turn out.

Tom Clancy’s EndWar

okay, the voice command in this one from the video’s i’ve seen works amazingly well, and it’s gonna be soo cool if it works well, and the online aspect the perpetual world war idea is also awesome, looking forward to this title.

that’s all i think for xbox/microsoft, PS3 is coming soon, Wii i will ignore, well i might write a little about it.

update

okay, so term 2 has ended at VFS, which is good, i guess, term 3 is coming up and it’s gonna be a lot tougher, and a lot more work, but i’m ready for it.

also i bought halo 3, and also i have finished halo: combat evolved, and halo 2, before i went out the bought halo 3 legendary edition, and i have to say halo series gotta be one of the best series of games i’ve ever played, even though it’s a first person shooter game which usually lacks story and depth, but halo has a rich story and some degree of depth and the online element of the halo 3 is just great, and it works really really well with bungie.net, even though bungie.net could be really slow in updating sometimes, which is kinda annoying but not really that bad. so yeah if you play halo 3 online as well, add me as friend i really wanna find some friends to play halo with since not many of classmates seem to be interested in halo.

also i’ve heard call of duty 4 is great as well, has awesome online multiplayer. i would love to try it out, but i plan on buying another controller first so me and a friend of mine from school can play some co-op action on halo 3 (also i want that action figure that comes with the spartan edition of the xbox controller :P)

call me a halo fanboy, but i love halo now, i think it’s great.

also been playing some mass effect as well, finally got to lvl 60 on my main guy, awesome, but a pain in the butt indeed to get to lvl 60.

also a few halo screenies:
