Out of all the games I have played I have favorite bad guys and favorite good guys. Below you'll see my favorite badass good characters from games I play or like. From the left to the right it's: Kratos, Torque, Raziel, Sam fisher, and Snake. I don't really have any reason for why they're my favorite though.

I hope you agree with what I chose. Now here are my favorite badass bad characters. From left to right its: Big Daddy, Kain, Gman, Liquid ocelot, and Pyramid Head.

If you don't agree tell me why, and add your own list of badass characters. My favorite bad character is Pyramid Head and my favorite good guy is Snake.

What should I review? Please tell me. I have a hard time choosing by myself. So I will list 10 of my games, 5 for PS2 and 5 for Xbox. If it's not already obvious I want you to comment on what I should review. I will randomly choose one every week and send a message to the person I chose. Add a picture of the game and I might make it the title(wow I didn't notice how stupid that sounded until I typed it).

Playstation 2

Indigo Prophecy
Tony Hawks:Proving Ground
Timesplitters:Future Perfect


Farcry Instincts
Advent rising
Fullspectrum Warrior
Oddworld:Strangers Wrath
Driver: Parallel lines

Ah, Killzone so many memories so many horrible memories(I actually enjoyed it even though it's bad). I just hope none of you had to experience it. I remember when it was suppose to be the Halo killer. To bad it wasn't (just so you know I don't like Halo). Killzone is actually kind of fun though.

What can I say about the story, nothing actually because I don't know it. I beat the game and I don't know the story, now thats bad. The story is actually very good if you look it up but the writers for the game just didn't know how to present it. All I know from playing the game is that the Helghast want to kill the humans for some reason. Please post and tell me why they are crazy because I don't want to play it over to find out.

I don't get it why are they even making a Killzone sequel? I mean it looks good but still what if the gameplay is the same? After the first half of the game the Helghast had shouted “reloading!” and “they have me pinned down!” about a hundred times. What kind of army is this? They tell you everything thats happening to them. One time I walked into a room and out of nowhere a Helghast soldier yelled “supressing fire,” first of all I wasn't shooting, second of all he would have killed me if he didn't say anything.

The gameplay isn't that bad but it's not good either. I'm not going to lie, at the first part of the game I had a lot of fun. The shooting is kind of good in my opinion. Then the game sends out enemies that are like superman. They take about two clips from the machine gun. It's not like they kill you faster it's just you don't have enough ammo to kill more than ten of them. Also, the A.I on your teammates is horrible. They stand in front of the enemies getting shot at but they don't shoot back. Killzone's graphics aren't good but they aren't that bad(well not that bad). The ragdoll physics are horrible but I didn't mind it because they are so funny. Like one time I killed this guy and he started doing thriller on the ground.

You shouldn't buy this game, renting it is still an option. It's not that good but you might enjoy it for a little while(I know I did). You should just wait for Killzone 2.

Okay, someone on one of my older blogs said I should make an intro blog. I thought, well since my reviews are so late can't my intro be late?

I'll start off with why I started reviewing games. The reason I started reviewing games was because of G4, Gameinformer, Xbox magazine,etc. I didn't like how it seemed like they review games based on popularity. For example every review I saw for Halo 3 was a ten I don't think any game deserves a ten, because doesn't ten mean perfect? I wanted to review games so I could say what was actually bad about it and good about it. All of the reviewers I mentioned lie most of the time about whats good in games and give it a ten if it's popular. When I review games I say what I like about them but I say if it's bad or not.

Now, I guess I'll tell you how I got into gaming. I was introduced to games when I was like 4 but back then I was horrible at games. Although, I still played them thinking that I was awesome at them. Ever since my first Sega I have loved video games but didn't start fully understanding what I was doing until my Ps2. I still play my Ps2 but I'm getting a Ps3 for Christmas so thats probably when I'll stop playing Ps2.

That is my late intro blog. I'm sorry I haven't posted a review in so long but I didn't think school would get in the way but it does. I will now only post reviews on Friday and soon I will list the games I have and let you decide on what I review. I was going to make a paragraph of games I like but thats in my about me sidebar.

I hope all of you readers have at least played this game. In my book it's one the best games I've played. Don't worry I'm not a fanboy.

You play as Kratos the ghost of Sparta. His story is pretty sad. He was the leader of the spartans. Then in a war against the barbarians he called upon Ares. Wait a minute barbarians really, where does it say anywhere that barbarians attacked Sparta. I mean maybe it happened in Sid Meiers: Civilization but not in real life. Well back to the story, okay he calls on Ares because a huge barbarian is about to kill him. Ares makes Kratos do whatever he wants he even makes him slaughter his whole family. Okay, I just want to say that Kratos asks Ares a small favor and in return Ares has Kratos Slaughter his whole family. Wow. Gods don't know what a favor is. So Kratos Realizes that he killed his family and now he wants revenge. Okay, he is more late than this review is.

I'd like to start off by saying I loved this game. I mean to me it's in my top 5 list of games I own. The fighting does get repetitive but it's not like it's horrible fighting (who am I kidding it's pretty bad). The one thing that made me hate the game was the difficulty. It goes from normal to god mode and god mode is harder than COD4 on veteran. It took me about an hour to beat the first Medusa on god mode. I have to say God Of War did amaze me when I saw the graphics I mean they're like the best on PS2. I know thats not saying much but still, they're to good for PS2. This was the only exclusive game I wished could've of been on Xbox just so I could see how much better it could've looked.

This game isn't perfect I know that. The game really needs to fix the difficulty curve between normal and hard. Also, added combos would be appreciated. The games ending doesn't set itself up for a sequel (not that thats bad or anything but they made a sequel). Also there is one part where you have to push a block on a conveyor belt while enemies constantly attack you. Before I go on I just want to say holy f***ing hell! I didn't know conveyor belts were invented in ancient Greece. I also didn't know there were so many monsters in ancient Greece but I won't go there. Okay, so this conveyor belt part was easy on normal but on god mode it's harder than the sniper mission on COD4( consider the block is Cpt. Macmillan.) I actually stopped playing the game it was so hard. The game is good though, when not on god mode.

The gameplay isn't actually that bad for a hack and slash. Even though you just press square over and over again it isn't as bad as Dynasty Warriors. The fighting on this game is fun but they should add some more combos for more variety. My favorite part of the game is by far the action sequences. I mean it adds so much more to boss fights (unlike how on Mgs they show a really cool feature of snake killing the boss). Although it would be cool if you could do it real-time. I know the game isn't mainly platforming like Prince of Persia but they could definitely use some more platforming parts and better ones. I think anyone who has played God of War would agree when I say it has some of the best action sequences in any game. God of war has really good gameplay with some flaws.

I recommend this game to gamers who like hack and slash, action, and platforming games. It's a game that should always be remembered. With the recent David Jaffe comments I'm sure it won't be forgotten.

I hated the psp a few days after I had gotten it. I'm just happy I got it for Christmas and didn't have to pay for it. This is the worst handheld ever I would rather have a Nintendo DS. Thats a lie the reason I got Psp is because DS also sucks. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy well actually wait a minute......... Okay, the Psp has way to many flaws.

First I'd like to say why does it have an internet browser? To have Wi-fi don't you have to have internet, and if you don't why would you want to use the crappiest internet browser EVER!? It's horrible every time you go to a different site it says “not enough memory go to tools and put on conserve memory” but when you do that it keeps saying it. I know the internet browser isn't the main part of the system but come on.

The games on it are good for a handheld. I mean it has really good graphics especially God of War Chains of Olympus. The bad thing is the controls are horrible. There is one analog...pad and by the way who was the smart guy who made this stupid pad on one side? On all of the third person shooters to aim you use x, square, o, and triangle. I regret ever asking for a Playstation Portable.

Don't get this handheld at all even if someone is giving it away(they're obviously giving it away for a reason). It will just piss you off because it'll just sit there getting dusty. Although the Nintendo DS isn't a prize either.
