Hey, Simon here. I live in the UK and am currently living the student life at university.
I mainly play on the XBOX 360, but since moving to university, I have been forced to leave it at my parents house for the time being. In the mean time I am focusing more and more on PC games. If you do see my gamertag online it will most likely be my brother who is making the most of me not being home at the moment.
Mainly play about on Team Fortress 2 and will be sacrificing a large portion of my time to Borderlands when it is released.
One of my greatest past times is the search for extremely good flash games, which I personally feel get underlooked sometimes.
Team Fortress 2
Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
Secret of Mana
So I managed to play some ODST this weekend finally. This is not a story about my experience, just more like a point I have to say.
If you play Firefight, never play on easy or normal, it is so boring. Even though the game becomes very difficult later on, the easier modes require so little effort with other people helping you that the game becomes less fun.
Let me put it this way; I was playing with my brother on normal. We had no lives left and I was the last one left. In the ten minutes that I was alive on my own I completed four waves without any trouble, and took on three chieftains at once before being picked off by a sniper.
Now, I don't want to get into the whole playing on the higher difficulty argument, but in this case Firefight has to be played on the higher levels to be fun, at least for me anyways. Oh, and before you say, I am not good at Halo.
