Gaming it's a great hobby what can I say? I enjoy a lot of games, I even enjoy games that a lot people would never even go near. I do have some favorites though, my favorite genres are Music and Fighting games. So I like Rock Band, Dead or Alive, Frequency, Soul Calibur, Gitaroo Man and Virtua Fighter. Of course I like many other games in each genre but those are just some examples.

And of course if you haven't already, you really should play Deus Ex.

Anything else about me? Well I have a passion for music. I listen to everything but I primarily listen to Metal.

Currently Playing:
Army of Two (360)
Front Lines: Fuel of War (360)
Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (PC)
The Witcher
Unreal Tournament III (PC)

A lot of gaming came from an unexpected purchase of a game this night and that game is Frontlines: Fuel of War. My roommate picked up the game the other day and I watched him play it for a while and I must say that, along with the demo, didn't really make me interested in the game. None the less my roommate kept on insisting that I purchase this game.

So I caved in and went out to get a copy of Frontlines and immediately hopped online. Now when I say immediately I mean spend 15 minutes trying to find a game that both my roommate and I can join for there is no party system (yes I'm spoiled on Call of Duty 4) and for whatever reason it is hard to connect to servers.

After finally joining a server and playing a few rounds, I started to get a feel for the game. I found it to be like Battlefield with RC cars and helicopters (which are really fun to use I might add). Since the official servers only played one map I had to jump from server to server. This became rather discouraging after a while so I decided to give the single player a try.

The single player actually helped me get into the game a lot and I started to have a lot of fun with it. After a few missions I decided to hop back online and play a few matches and of course a few turned out to be a late night of gaming.

All in all I am happy with my purchase it only took a few hours to realize it. I just hope that the fun lasts and that they patch the game soon.

On a side not this game is good for achievement whores, I managed to get 455 points just from playing one night.

Yesterday I got an unexpected check in the mail with some extra spending money, no complaints from me especially since I get to buy Lost Odyssey sooner then expected.

I started the game last night and like many others I am enjoying the game thus far despite the fact that it is kicking my ass at the moment. Also like most other's the game does remind me of Final Fantasy straight down to the menu to system (if only you could change the color of the menu, then it would remind me even more of Final Fantasy).

I am not very far into the game for sleep deprivation got the best of me but one thing that made me laugh in the game is the dream sequences. They are very well written and give interesting tidbits of Kaim's past but I just can't help but be reminded of Power Point when I watch them. They remind me of middle school when fellow students would use every effect they could for their presentation.

I can't wait to get back in the game though and this time I am bringing a cup of coffee with me.

So I was talking on the phone with my mother, walking around my room and a game had caught my eye. That game was Avaria's Endless Ages.

I remember setting the game aside a few weeks ago thinking that I might actually play the game or at least check it out. Now one might be wondering why I would want to play the game, hell even purchase it, when it looks like this.

Well I bought the game a year ago for two reasons, on the box it claimed that it is "The World's First True MMORTFPSRPG" and it was only $3.14 at Fry's Electronics. I had been wanting to play a MMO for while so I figured I would give it a shot.

I then realized that this game looks rather old so the servers may not be up anymore and that I should check to make sure so that I don't waste any time or hard drive space installing the game. So I did a quick Google search on the game and I come across this website. http://www.endless-ages.com/

I began to read the latest news and learned that Endless Ages has just gone up for pre-order. This really confused me because I could have sworn that I was actually holding the box for the game in my hand and yet this website is saying that they now have the game up for pre-order. So at first I was thinking this must be another game with the same title. Hey it is possible after all the box does say Avaria's Endless Ages.

After not finding anything else but reviews for the game, I went back to the first website I stumbled upon and began reading through the forums a little. I discovered that something went wrong with the development team and the game disappeared. I know that sounds vague but I couldn't find any other information, not that I was trying. So this guy, Jason Lee, is apparently re-releasing Endless Ages with some tweaks to it.

It seems that my copy of this game is now completely useless and that I would need to buy the new version when it comes out if I want to experience such a genre as a MMORTFPSRPG. Which I don't really mind since the collector in me will want the different version anyways but most likely I will forget about this game by the time it comes out..... again.

How about that? A blog about video games. I sure as hell play them enough why not talk about them right.

I guess I should start with a little bit about me. My real name is Cory but right now that is boring. In the gaming world I go by Saddack. That is also my gamer tag on XBox live. I have been gaming since I was 4 (I am now 22). The very first game I ever played was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade game. I remember playing that game to death with my brother at Dairy Queen. Now that I am all grown, well by age at least, I prefer to game on the 360 and pretty much indulge myself in whatever I can get my hands on. I am just about done with Kingdom Under Fire: The Circle of Doom, damn those last two achievements and I am about to move on to a Devil Mary Cry marathon. I just picked up the fourth one and since I never actually finished a single one of those games I thought it would be fun so that I would know the whole story.

I am also big on collecting games. I have way to many of them but I know that there are people out there with bigger collections, well for now at least. A lot of them I haven't even played much less even beaten but that is something I am working on, hence the Devil May Cry marathon.

Well thats about it for now, I am sure you will get to know me more through my posts.
