Valve has been in my mind ever since back in 1997 when my uncle brought a pirated copy of half life 1 (yes I know, it's a crime.)
I played it and it was like love at first site, when half life 2 was announced in 2004 my fanboy meter exploded couldn't wait but unfortunately back in 2004 my computer was a piece of crap, and I didn't have a xbox at the time either, so I was screwed, but of course I got my xbox along with the game, I gotta admit the second one I liked alot more, later on I got a new pc and added a new graphics card and NOW I own every single game valve has ever developed in steam. do I still play them all? not really after all I would choose team fortress 2 more than classic any day. half life in my personal opinion has the greatest story line of video gaming, the second greatest is fallout, Of course this is my personal opinion you don't have to get medieval on me.

one more thing, ALAN MOORE IS GOD! well the graphic novel god.

I used to record music in a recording studio a few years ago:

As a Video Gamer there is always something to learn within the industry, and so much we can share with each other, A good friend of mine collected Games, consoles, and accessories for years Since grade 6, now all of those years have fully paid off and he has launched an account on youtube also known as Andrew's Game Display, He has committed into this channel and brings out multiple videos weekly of his ridiculous video game collection.

His goal for this channel is simple really, to show off specific games, consoles, and accessories with detailed history, From the box of the product all the way to how it looks on the screen It is a great channel to visit if you are a gamer and it definitely deserves more recognition for the amount of hard work That he has and will put in for his viewers, You guys simply cannot miss this.

So January is giving us a hard time here in Canada with unmerciful winds, But Atleast I have A creeper in the front of my house.

Good thing my house was built before it got here.

Well here we are 13 years have passed, and now we can all finally enjoy Duke Nukem at his finest.
(well at least the remaining fans)

after hearing the news that Gearbox was taking over the project and it is finally coming out next year I realized that maybe the Pre-order would be here soon, of course I marched down to the closest EB games to find out they didn't quite have them yet "try again middle September" and so here we are September 20th 2010. I got my Golden ticket.

Hopefully some of you old duke fans gained a little more faith after these news, and hopefully bring duke back to being the king of the world. (like he once was)


I'm sorry for the picture being so humongous.

Once again these pre-orders are pissing me off, I always have to walk to the local EB games and it's either super cold or rainy, That's Canada.

Anyways I seem to have been playing Just cause 2 for the last couple of hours and seriously It is a BIG step up from the first one, they really fixed up most of the problems that the first one had and I was beyond pleased of the finishing product.



A little recap of the story line is you are Rico Rodriguez (typical south american name) He is a special ops trying to hunt down the man that trained him become the man he is today, simply because his trainer went Rogue. Pretty simple right?

Now for the controls you gotta play around with for a while it's certainly nothing you can just pick up and play of course it has it's own creative way to use the controller (in my case the ps3 controller) Now once you get used to the controls which really take no time, all it takes is to remember the buttons to hijack and do stunt positions because trust me there is going to be times when you are gonna have to think fast about these controls.



Now the story line is nothing we were all looking for in this game, as of how far I am right now it's not as strong as other bigger titles, It's just you're typical Desperado movie with a little bit of Enrique Inglesia and Che Guevara, you probably thought I was gonna say Antonio Banderas.

Many people that were anticipated by this game was simply because of the ridiculous stunts you can perform such as managing to stand on top of a jeep while it's flying out of control and grappling to a helicopter that has been spraying bullets at you for the last 5 minutes, that's something I actually wanted to talk about the Grappling hook.

The Grappling hook is you're best friend through this game, It can be you're Vehicle (sort of) It can be you're weapon, and it is also great to pull other vehicles while it is attached to the vehicle you are currently driving, what catched my eye about this game was not only the Dual Grappling hook, but also that there are absolutely no boundaries to where you want to grapple, you can grapple to anything you want just aim and shoot, Big changes are the fact that the hook is not used as a single weapon anymore It is a gauntlet on you're left arm that by simply pressing one of the triggers you activate it, And as for the Dual Grappling, I have never had so much fun seeing an enemy flying around screaming while he is attached to a propane tank.



The only bad thing I think this game has is the Driving mechanics, It's really loose and when I'm driving I spin like a mad man, I could see myself choosing the Gta 4 driving over this one, But I guess they are right about the whole "choose the right car for right environment" Physics they explained.

If I were to give this game a rating it would be an 8/10 simply the story line is nothing worth telling you're mom about, and there are small control problems that will make you just feel a little bit frustrated. But just a little bit. The combat is simply a blast and the map is just too humongous for me to even talk about it, BUT HELL I RECOMMEND THIS. Simply a must have if you LOVE sandbox games. No doubt about it.

P.S: Pre-order this game in gamestop or ebgames and you get the signature weapon from the original game and a monster truck. It is probably the most biggest cheapest and strongest revolver I have used in a video game, I think it might be because it is upgraded to the max.

A great Machinima that seems to make me want to play the half life series all over again.
The whole machinima stands on half-life 2 episode 2 when Eli breaks the news about the Gman of course This is not completed withought a good case of... Nostalgia.
