Researching Your Games: You're Doing It Wrong

   0
To me, buying a sixty dollar game is a pretty big investment to me, especially when it is a pre-order/new release. However, this is because of my lack of funds right now, so it might be different to other folks. I get frustrated with some of these people that get upset with a game that is not what they expected or the quality of the content isn't what they assumed the product would be. You know what I say to these people? STFUJPG

The one particular game that stands out to me is Brutal Legend, one of my favorite games of last year.
Now, I can see people going in thinking it was going to be a straight up hack and slash game...



However, it actually turned out more like an RTS type...



Now, I research the hell out of games that I am excited for. So I knew what I was getting into when I picked
Brutal Legend up. I was excited to see other people on my friends list later that day also start to play it. The day after that however, they went back to playing Halo or Call of Duty. I was curious, so I asked what they thought of Brutal Legend. Their response: "Man, it sucks! I thought it was going to be a slasher but it's actually a gay RTS!". I heard many colleges give a similar answer over and over again. However, some of the blame is also on the marketing department for Brutal Legend.

There are also some otherr games where the same thing has happened such as Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, Mirror's Edge, and Overlord. So I guess the point of this blog is... don't waste your hard earned money on games you are not fully informed on! Oh, there is also this thing called "renting" that I use, you should try it too!

About SuperMonk4Everone of us since 12:33 PM on 12.21.2008

Hey, I'm Andrew, I am a gamer and a ROCKER!! I usually only play my 360, but if I am in the mood, I might play Mario Cart on my Wii. I would say my favortie games would have to be... Rock Band 3, Left 4 Dead 2, Bioshock, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Half-Life 2, Metal Gear series and the Jak and Daxter series.. Right now, I am playing Mortal Kombat, Saints Row 2, Catherine and Halo: Reach.

I am just your good old average 20 year old gamer that enjoys his games. If you are curious about my name, it comes from my most popular character, Super Monk. I draw a comic with him as the main character, an monk with a hidden face behind an orange cloak that swears, drinks, fights, and all things a monk should not do.

Well, I guess I should also tell you some of my other favorite things as well, because we all enjoy movies and music as well. :)

Favorite Movies: Donnie Darko, Kung Fu Hustle, The Punisher, Shaun Of The Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Silent Hill, The Mummy and others that are slipping my mind.

Favorite Artists: Coheed and Cambria, Everclear, The White Stripes, LostProphets, Queen, Elton John and Tenacious D

Oh, and if any of you want to play me on Xbox Live, send me a message or friends request to SuperMonk4Ever. Thanks! :]



This is what I look like in a Wanted poster



I have my own theme! Listen to it and behold the Symphony of the Monk!
