Hey all, tommrow I will be posting a review of the video games live show I recently went to. Until then enjoy this clip from the show...
I feel like i should add more to this post, but I don't know what. So enjoy these useless facts!
The city of Slaughter, Texas (population: 11,284), has never had a homicide occur within its boundaries. Moths are unable to fly during an earthquake Ingesting small doses of ink over an extended period of time will change your eye color slightly. If the current trend continues, by the year 2215 midgets will outnumber "normal-sized" people. Until 1978, Camel cigarettes contained minute particles of real camels. Among items left behind at Osama bin Laden's headquarters in Afghanistan were 27 issues of Mad Magazine. Al Qaeda members have admitted that bin Laden is reportedly an avid reader Winston Churchill was born with a third nipple, which he removed himself with nail-clippers at the age of 14.
Sad times, sad times. I guess I shall tell you the story. Well it started a few days ago, my 360 would freeze while playing GTA. Then it became more and more frequent, so much so that i couldn't even play the game anymore because it was taking away from the expirence. So finally I got the red rings of death. Called up microsoft and the box to send it in is on its way.
Well this isn't all that bad. It's going to finally give me a chance to play my Wii. Play some games that I have totally neglected like Super Mario Galaxy, No More Heroes, Okami, the list goes on and on. I've already started with Super Mario Galaxy. I like it, it's good, but not as good as what most people have been saying. But it's still really good.
Also, by the end of this summer I project that I will have enough coinage to buy a PS3 (80gb btw). But I'm not quite sure if I should do this, only time will tell though.
Anyone see the new episode of the Office? Pretttaaay funny. On the topic of comedy, SNL is really starting to suck....
Happy mother's too all mothers here and mothers of people here at Dtoid!
What time to tell you about my mother and her expirences in video games. Well, to start off I've always tried to get my parents to play games and I have had little to no success. But in the case of my mother she will always try whenever she can. Her favourite game by far is Mario Kart 64. Most likely for the reason that she beat one of my brothers in a race in Moo Moo Farm.
To this day she still brings it up and takes a moment to bask in her glory. She still likes me to hook up the ol' N64 for a game of Mario Kart, and I've considered buying Mario Kart 64 on the Wii but I've never gotten around to it. Mario Kart Wii might be a good birthday present for her....
She played various games throughout the next few years, nothing really standoutish. She tried hopelessly with GTA III, Vice City, San Andreas and VI. She loves to sing in rock band, very obnoxiously might I add. She's tried Guitar Hero, and she wasn't all that bad.
She has tried Halo, she has tried everything in between, nothing really worked for her other than Mario Kart. Then one day i got her to try Wario Ware: MegaMicrogame$! I tried to find the easiest mini game for her, i came up with one where you drop a strawberry on a piece of cake. She loved it, she played it for hours on end, just that one minigame. She eventually got the high score and ran with it. I refrain from playing that minigame now.
That also reminds me of a minigame with my dad on WarioWare: Twisted. It was one where you had to jump sheep over a fence to keep a kid alsleep of something. He also played that for hours on end, and got the high score and I also do not play that one anymore. (well that not exactly, I tried to beat his highscore once, I didn't even come close)
I've set up some tennis matches on Wii Sports with my parents, and they all end in hilarity.
Well until next time, keep on keeping on mothers!
I'm gay because I like Coldplay.
(bonus: my moms favourite song)
Well i was on gamefaq to see the various cheats and stuff. Something caught my eye on the side. It was an ad for GTA IV from Best Buy, it was a gif consisting for 5 diffrent pictures, i don't know what to think of it. I'm so confused right now. You can make your own judgement...
(the pictures can be found at the bottom in order obvs.)
In other news, I'm quite enjoying GTA, I'm sure all of you have already read a thousand reviews and you're most likely sick of them. So I'll just tell you somethings that i really enjoy/enjoyed.
1. I was running on the freeway for no particular reason. And as i was running a piece of newspaper came swooping in and went right up to the screen and scared the shizzle out of me, but it looked so cool.
2. I was going around killing people, and i went in front of a taxi. I pulled out my pistol, and shot him in the head, his head fell forward slammed on the horn, and i guess his foot hit the acclerator. and his car went full blast into me and killed me (i had low health)
3. The shows at the theatres, i espically like the one where the magician was throwing knives at his assiasnt when she on one of those thingamagiggys and he missed and hit her, blood went everywhere. I lol'd, sorry for the bad explaination.
that was a joke btw.
5. Online dating, werid, i didn't expect something like that.
6. The mini-games, I've spent so much time on them.
7. The whole game. Well maybe not the whole game, but from what i've played I like. Expect the controls, feel odd. maybe that's just me.
I love playing games with choices. More spicifically, I like games where you can chose whether your character will play the role of good or evil, hero or villian, paragon or renegade, hell even, even.... even.... ummm, well I can't think of anymore, but that's not the point! The point is choices, and choices are everywhere, which leads me to this experiment I have been planning and will be doing over the next while.
When I play games with choices, I always have a hard time being bad, I always find myself being good, doing good deeds, doing what was asked of me. I have yet to figure out why, maybe it's because I get to attached to the character and I want them to be good, maybe it's because i name all my characters after me, make them look like my and because I'm not generally considered a bad person, I make good choices.
I think every game I've played I have made the good choices (expect for Bioshock, although I had to really think about what I was doing before I chose to harvest the little sisters, I always wanted to save them)
Now, here is where my experiment comes in.
I just recently downloaded Fable off XBL. I have heard good things about it, and I never got a chance to play it so I decided to give it a shot. I also wany to get a feel for the game before Fable 2.
I play to play though the game, being one bad mother--- Shut Your mouth!
Well then, like I said i plan to be basically, well bad. I want to see how I will enjoy the game, how I react, how I react in real life, if i get attached to the character, etc., etc.
I will be posting my result once I'm finished the game (althought that may be awhile because of GTAIV)
But I have already started this little experment without you guys! I started the game, i didn't get that far in, but the choices come flying at you right away. I didn't know how to be bad, so I saw a little girl looking for her doll, and what would a bad person do? That's right! Punch the shi*t out of her. And man did i laugh my ass off. I continued through the game, doing the opposite of what people asked of me, and I was having a ball! I was laughing having a great expirence.
Now, that's all for now, and let's hope I enjoy the game as much as I did at the beginning. =)
It's fun to screw around with stuff on your PC. I'm guesing there's not many of us here in Destuctoid who know how to hack (and i'm with you on that) But from time to time I like screwing around with this program i found on the internetzzzz. It's called Cheat Engine (btw i only use it on flash games and applications)
Cheat Engine is a tool designed to give you the upper hand in games, but also contains other usefull tools to help debugging games and even normal applications.
It comes with a memory scanner to quickly scan for variables used within a game and allow you to change them, but it also comes with a debugger, disassembler, assembler, speedhack, trainer maker, direct 3D manipulation tools, system inspection tools and more.
For new users it is recommended to go through the tutorial(The one that comes with Cheat Engine, you can find it in your programs list after installing) and at least reach step 5 for basic understanding of the usage of Cheat Engine
