I would like to begin tonight's recap by first thanking Garison for covering for me on yesterday's recap. That was the first time I have ever asked for someone to take over my spot, and I honestly felt bad. I probably shouldn't, since I have definitely covered for other people close to 15 times, but I still do anyways. Thanks Garison! You are full of awesome!
Just so you all know, I am very addicted to Killzone 2's multiplayer. As much as I like it though, I do have quite a lot of issues with it. The fact you don't get access to all the classes in the beginning of the game, really causes some major balance issues in my opinion. A team full of higher ranked members, who have all the class abilities to choose from, can basically decimate a team with lower ranked individuals who have no class abilities. This obviously won't be a problem eventually, once everyone ranks up, but right now it causes me some headaches. Maybe I'm just too used to playing Team Fortress 2, where you can pick from every class from the get go. Anyways, that's my only major problem with the multiplayer so far. I have several smaller complaints, but nothing worth boring you with here.

Special little places
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
