      Ok I just put myself through this movie trailer Never Say Never. A Justin Bieber biopic
      How does a 16 year old from America who hasn't been through 16 years of hell get a biopic made about him...
      Honestly don't anything his music, but everything about this pisses me off!
      Cause that is a couple of million dollars they just spent on this crap while good film scripts are floating in the wind.

      Oh also hey guys how is life?

    • Bad Company 2 Review

      7 years ago

      canon_fodder

      Quick half finished review of Bad Company 2 I did, hopefully it will tide you over till I get a journal of my trips up.

      Canon

      My Final thoughts on Bad Company 2.

      Ridiculous story. It is on par with Modern Warfare 2, with a little bit of almost Sci Fi thrown in. (New Weapon that does scary things) It falls short in a lot of areas though. I shall expand.
      Firstly they seem to have thrown out any character traits from the first game, except for the bad ones, Sarge complaining about this being his last mission. Sweetwater being a little bitch, Haggard being stupidly American. Oh and they expanded Marlowe's (the PC) single trait. His speeches, now though he does them out loud as well as in his head… which would be interesting if they were the same speeches that should have been in his head… instead he is now the guy who gets everyone back in the game with a rousing speech about how good america is. Lets look at the other members of the squad and compare them to the characters from Bad Company 1.

      Firstly Sarge.
      Why didn't he just retire, he could have easily retired. There was no explanation as to why he didn't retire, at the start of the game he says this is his last mission, then he goes on to… well not retire for the entire game. (and don't get me started at the end of the game)

      Sweetwater
      What happened to him being geeky and smart, oh and you know not a smaller version of haggard??

      That brings me to Haggard.
      Seriously, what happened to his character, in the first one, he chases after a truck full of gold cause he is hilariously comical… in this one he is all about… well I don't know. being broody and angry at liberals??

      The game tries to mimic what the fuck moments throughout the game, but it fails to achieve any consistent flow. Modern Warfare 2 (and by mocking that game they have to be compared to it) kept up the pace, on reflection the storyline is weak flimsy and strung along by the deaths of the PC's, but when playing it I was sucked in, I think I played it start to finish in one sitting. And I felt physically drained by the end of it. I had been on a rollercoaster that had characters who I thought could be real.
      Bad Company 1 was about blowing shit up, and the characters were stuck in with that in mind, they blew up shit and they were crazy. There was no way people like this could ever get anything done. And since when was Bad Company providing support for an undercover agent? what happened to the rejects from everywhere else?
      They just abandoned all connections to storyline from the previous game… They went from guys with hardly any support to these macho guys who get to give entire regiments orders… They aren't even Bad Company for the most of the game, they are SAD (and this game made me sad!)

      On a quick side note Multiplayer rocks!

      Well, I figured the Korean girls had been up there for an awful long time, so I thought I would just do a quick update. =P

      Can't wait to see you too. =)

      Oh, speaking of which... Did you get my message about not needing to bring a TV? We figured we have a monitor, or another TV that you can set your xbox up on so you don't have to worry about bringing your TV. Plus we can prolly set it up so we are all in the same room, I think that would be awesome too. You just need your xbox/controller/power etc, and any other "surprises" you may happen to be bringing with you ;)

      Also, I was right, I did have a message from Shen arrive while I was talking to you on the phone. She cursed at you for being quicker than her. =P

    • MineIsAnEvil

      7 years ago

      Yeah, that is true. We just have to be smart about these things, and not do silly things like send our money to randoms.

      We are pretty good... My thesis is due in three weeks, and it isn't going too badly... I am trying to write my discussion at the moment though, which is tough. Just that first draft, actually getting words down. I have dot points, but for some reason I am having a hard time turning them into something reasonable. =P

      And because of that I keep doing other parts, like adjusting my intro around, writing my abstract etc... However I really need to get stuck into the discussion, and I am going to do that as soon as I finish this comment. =)

      Jarrad is going pretty well, he is being very considerate for me at the moment, when I stress out etc.

      And no, we haven't bought reach yet. I think the most recent 360 games we bought were prolly mass effect 2, Bioshock 2, or FFXIII. THAT is how much we are saving our money at the moment. =P

      We have a bunch of things we are missing out on at the moment, and prolly will never get the collectors editions of (Assassins Creed brotherhood, I am looking at you...), but I am really looking forward to this holiday. =)

    • MineIsAnEvil

      7 years ago

      Yeah, I know. That is what I am worried about. Maybe the more sophisticated one will trick me. =P

      And yeah, I guess if they are sending out thousands of them, and get hundreds of bites... That is pretty good I guess.

      I mean not good. But worthwhile for them? You know what I am trying to say.

      Is there a podcast?

    • MineIsAnEvil

      Hahaha, yeah, that would be awesome, but totally understandable if you can't =)

      I think Jarrad will just be pleased if you use his back to the future joke =P

      Also, Jarrad is complaining that there is no talking about breasts, instead talking about fees.

    • MineIsAnEvil

      I am only accusing you of something that actually happened... So it is more like reminding, than accusing. =P

      I have set a reminder on my phone tonight, hopefully I will be able to listen to your show. I'll try to get Jarrad to listen too. Even if there is no breasts involved. =P

    • MineIsAnEvil

      7 years ago

      But pirates three has already been filme..... oh wait...

      I don't know which is scarier... The fact that I knew what you were talking about then... or... Well, thats it really. I guess that was one of the things about high school I remember you all talking about. Constantly. >_<

    • MineIsAnEvil

      7 years ago

      haha. Oh, you are a cruel person sometimes... All those people, so disappointed. =P

    • MineIsAnEvil

      >_<

    • MineIsAnEvil

      7 years ago

      Haha, awesome. I look forward to hopefully hearing it.

      So long as I am not actually on air... I really do not like the sound of my own voice, I don't think it is fair that you project it across your uni... =P

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      I would say it is 'secret reach testing' that 'we have to use in this emergency' or something of the sort...

      Thing I don't understand is the covenant needler sniper... How did that magically end up only on Reach :P

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      Certainly seems that way... No dual weilding now, either...

      I have to say, it certainly feels like the most evenly matched game of the series so far. No powerups, anyone can be invisible, or fly... Its very well done :)

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      All the new weapons are pretty cool :)

      I'm quite fond of the needler sniper :)

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      Yeh, No grenades, No shields, just a pistol and something that resembles a battle rifle. Fuggen awesome :D

      I've also been forging more on Halo 3 ;)

      When is it that you are coming home?

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      Takedowns? Do you mean assassinations?

      They suck if you are the one being assassinated, that's for sure :P

      Also, they've changed the SWAT gametime, and now it friggen owns. LOVE IT!

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      We are talking nerd stuff :)

      And as soon as you get back we will start hanging out a whole bunch, again :)

      Played the beta for about an hour last night. It was pretty good. I was initially pissed off with the control system, but once you start playing, you realise that there is a reason for the controls changing. I got used to it about half way through my first game. By the end of it I was getting pretty competent and really enjoying it. Game handles well, you can zoom with the pistol again, and there is a needler sniper which is friggen awesome. I'm not sure how that works story-wise, with it not being in any of the other games (seeing as Reach is set at the very beginning...).

      But I liked going invisible... And being able to run... And the jetpacks are kinda cool, but they mostly just got me killed as I was all in the air and everyone was like there is that guy, lets kill him. I'm still not sure about the whole defending thing...

      The idea of loadouts is cool... But I think you have to wait for the full game until you can change those. Still, something to look forward to :) And I think the campaign will be good... At least it will play well... I just hope the story is better than ODST. Man, that game sucked...

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      Ugh... Don't remind me about Halo 2...

      I'm going to go see if the Beta is up :)

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      In reality its probably taken them 18 months, and it just took so long to start making it because they couldn't get funding, or something :P

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      Yeh, they never used to be this close together... I remember when Westwoods were going broke, there was a huge gap between generals and zero hour... And then an even bigger gap before EA decided to start making more games... Stupid EA....

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      Be sure to view the skyline from the air. Chicago is probably the most beautiful city I have ever been to...

      I do not have CnC4 yet... Money, once more... Plus 3 only just came out like 18 months ago... They really don't give it much time between games... Considering there was a CnC3 expansion pack, then Red Alert 3 and then an expansion for that, and now a new game... Thats some crazy shit...

      I do get to play the Beta next month. I'll tell you if it wins.

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      That would be adorable of you if you did that. I think a 4 player campaign of Reach would be metal. Plus our internets are fixed now, so it is wikid fast. No more lag :)

      I'm not a massive fan of Starcraft. I mean I liked it, but I was always more of a CnC person :-/ So that one I really feel can wait until I get back... Reach is really the only thing I am bummed about missing...

      Also, Asia has Japan... And Japan has a life sized Gundam statue... nuff said...

    • MineIsAnEvil

      7 years ago

      Haha, yeah, I understand what you mean. =)

      And yes indeed we will be seeing Pealet and Sloebomb. We are going to be staying with them for two weeks. They are the main reason we are going to America, and not one of the many other places I want to go. =P

      And with Asia vs Europe, the main thing about Asia we like is that it seems to be cheaper. Plus we could prolly go there for a short period of time, where Europe I would want to do another BIG trip (aka long and expensive). =P

      Thats the way I see it at least. =)

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      Don't worry, I'm still going to get all these games... Just not until I get back from the states :)

    • Phoenix

      7 years ago

      I've not played it.

      Due to the whole saving for the USA trip, buying games has taken a back seat. I have only purchased Final Fantasy XIII, Pokemon Gold/ Silver, Bioshock 2 (for Talia) and Mass Effect 2 this year. And I plan for it to stay that way. And yes, that means no Halo Reach...

      These are the things I must go through to see squirrels...

      It may scream sex, but at least they are all of an acceptable age. =P

      At least they aren't trashy like a lot of music videos. They manage to wear skimp outfits, but not look trashy. In my eyes, at least. =P

      See, I don't think I was ever that irresponsible. So I don't think I have changed much either. =P By the way, you reminding me about that just made me burst out laughing. Jarrad was confused.

      But I do miss hanging out with everyone every day, then getting together on weekends and staying up all night. Good times.

      I can imagine you do meet lots of weird people at backpackers! I'm not sure how much I would like it, I really need my own personal space. But I definitely want to travel more. Not sure if you know or not, but Jarrad and I are going to America for 6 weeks at the end of the year. Looking forward to that. Then our next big trip will be either Asia or Europe. Eventually =P

      Looking forward to reading more of your adventures. =)

      PS. I am currently wrapped up in my megatokyo blanket. So awesome. (^_^)

      It is one of the greatest television series ever. I dare say the best about growing up and youth ever.
      Perhaps as important as anything that happens in the series is that unlike most shows which either drag out for years past the point where they should still be going on or just get cancelled... this one, this one has an actual conclusion for the story.
