I hope all of my fellow Americans had a good 4th of July. Hopefully you all got away from the internet and your couches for a while and went and hung out with some friends outside to enjoy this patriotic holiday. I know I had a great time. My girlfriend and I threw a huge 4th of July cookout, with lots of food, lots of alcohol, and lots of fireworks. Luckily I once again was able to not blow my hand off while lighting fireworks while drunk. Ever since an almost near serious accident last year involving myself and fireworks, my girlfriend has been a little worried about me getting drunk and lighting off these oh-so explosive devices. Speaking of my girlfriend getting worried, she was also seriously freaked out this year by the Hawaiian shirt I decided to wear for my party. I have decided to post a picture below for you all to see how hideous this shirt looked. The funny thing is, I LOVE this shirt. I didn't care what she, or anyone else thought of me in it.
So let's talk video games for a while ok. I ended up taking an entire week of vacation last week from work, and decided to spend it by sitting at home playing Gears of War 2. Now I could have played any game, but this game had been sitting in my cabinet, unopened for 8 months, so I thought it was about time to open it up. After about 20 hours playing through the story campaign multiple times, and about 30 hours playing multiplayer, I can definitely say I will probably never play this game again. The story was great, but it's near impossible to get into a co-op game successfully, and the multiplayer is completely hit and miss. I have never experienced more 1-shot kills in my entire life in a game. It's extremely frustrating and it makes me never want to play the multiplayer ever again. If anyone wants to play the story campaign co-op let me know, otherwise I am done with Gears of War 2. Now it's time to move on to X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Before we move on with the recaps, I would just like to mention I won't be posting my typical dragon picture tonight. Instead I'm posting a picture of myself in the hideous Hawaiian shirt I wore to my 4th of July party I threw this weekend. I guess it is a picture of a dragon after all, since it's a picture of me and I am Silverdragon1979 right. ;-)
