Long forgotten is my Resolution of 2011. I have just decided that for 2012 I would like to do a few things video game related. Hopefully writing it down here will help me to accomplish it, and not forget about it.
First, I would like to get through my current library of Ps3 games. I got a lot of new games this year, most of them in the last couple months. Some I have already gone through but would like to go back and unlock more trophys and beat them on a higher difficulty ect. This Is actually quite a daunting task when I think about it. Some of the games like Skyrim and MGS:HDC I expect to take a great deal of time to even come close to completion. At the end of this article I'll include a list of all the games I currently have for the ps3 and it might give you an idea what I am up against.
Now on top of this first part of my resolution, I have two new types of controllers for my ps3. A MadCatz TE Fightstick I bought online for 60$ an a Playstation Move SharpShooter thing I just got for Christmas. My resolution involving these new controllers is to master their use, or at least become more competent than I am now. I have had the Fightstick for a few months and am starting to get the hang of it, I have a long way to go though. I really don't have much skill when It comes to linking big combos for massive amounts of DMG and mostly find myself relying on a few specific moves and trying to be conservative about taking hits. I don't really have much to say about the SharpShooter yet I have maybe 1.5 Hours game time with it so far. I have started playing Killzone 3 with it and seem to be doing okay, I know that I would be doing much better with a Six Axis but the challenge of using the SharpShooter is entertaining and keeps me engaged in the game. I think that it was the same way with the Fightstick at first, I'm not sure If I am better now with it than a SA. I definitely think these controllers are fun but don't expect them to actually improve my game, in Fighting games and FPS's respectively, overnight. If anyone has any tips about learning to link big combos with a Fightstick or tricks for calibrating or adjusting settings for optimizing efficiency with the SharpShooter, leave me a comment or send me a message.
Finally, I have a resolution that has less to do with video games. I want to take more photos and build a portfolio of the photos I have taken of my friends over the years since I studied photography in High School and at the Santa Rosa JC. I also want to continue reading and writing as I have started to do more and more recently and I am really enjoying it.
I hope you all have a Happy New Year and wish you good luck with your own resolutions!
