    • Halo Reach vs MW2

      8 years ago

      ArbiterzArkn

      After playing Reach, and having it take over my online time, I decided to give a comparison between the two biggest games of the decade. These are my thoughts about MW2 and The newest addition to the Halo Saga, Halo Reach.

      Reach just doesn't have the elements MW2 does to keep you addictive and wanting to play more. Reach is fun, but the unlockables and new customization options are a joke. I want to be able customize my weapons and actually choose them when a match starts. Kill streaks encourage me to play that much better. In Halo, you're just rewarded with the announcement of a killing spree. How cool would halo be if you could create weapon loadouts and call in a pelican as a kill streak. I understand Halo is a true to its roots kind of game, but maybe 343 should take a gamble with Halo 4 and try out the elements that have made MW2 so popular. 20+ million people can't be wrong.

      I personally think that MW2 was a a step down from COD4. Great game, many exciting new elements, but many of the changes kept it from being as memorable as COD4. I think its the choice of the graphics engine they used as well as the hacks and unfinished details.

      Halo Reach definitely got my approval, seeing as how i was always very critical of the halo saga for being extremely repetitive, and extremely childish. This new game really took the player into a whole new gaming experience. I loved how they incorporated the different classes, and the new changes they made to the game mechanics and play style.

      All in all, I feel that Reach was an astonishing game, but I still have some problems. Personally, I never really appreciated Bungie's business ethics, they always had too much control over their games, and that control would ultimately influence how the game was received by the player. Here is a list of somethings that I feel could have been improved:

      smiley9.gif Have the content fit the rating
      -Bungie is notorious for having all of its products in the Halo saga, rated 'M'. With this rating comes a good amount of gore and violence. However, what really upsets me is that they try to convey the mood of a lone soldier that is facing utter disaster in an on going war, with hopeless odds. And during this entire display, there is never any show of legitimate emotion or anger. Im not saying to use excessive profanities but honestly, how can you not use the F-bomb in this type of scenario. What the FUCK bungie. Additionally, one of the things that really upsets me is that they go as far as to make clan tag clean. Freedom of speech is a great thing. Too bad we cant use it.

      smiley9.gif Customization
      -The fact that they had a economic system in this game is great, it makes the player want to keep coming back. But there is a serious down side. What is the drive for this money? Does it have a purpose? The answer is no.The best you can do is unlock a new aesthetic choice for your player to wear during matches, or to have clouds of stink come off of your player. Why not add bonuses to armor affects, Extra magazines, stronger melee, higher shields? This could all be taken into consideration, and see as how Customization is the biggest hook point of many games today, you would think Bungie would be wise to all this to happen. Choosing a load out, or what grenades to start with would be a great addition.

      smiley9.gif Repetition
      -Its always the same thing with every game they unleash, a masked hero, who always taunts you with his facial appearance, who against all odds can do more than an entire planet full of soldiers. To even further drive the point, you have the same exact names of levels.


      All in all Reach was a success in my eyes, I just wish that Bungie would have the creativity to take some greater chances with their options. Hopefully 343 industries makes a better choice and breaks off from where bungie left off and improves on their apparent failures.

      Thanks for hearing me out! smiley12.gif

    • All is well that ends...uhm...about that

      Its been a while since I have written a journal on how shit is going with me, and I have some time now so I'll throw those of you who give a shit, and that douche bag who still has a hell bent desire to neg my shit, a little update on what is going on with me.

      Since my last entry I have graduated my first semester of college. For those of you who arnt keeping up, I am enrolled in a Electronics and Computer Engineering 4 year program at a Penn State branch called Penn College of Technology. This branch is strictly for technical applications in industry, engineering, and fabrication. So far I have learned the basics and its going pretty well. I made alot of good friends, and alot of good enemies, all in all, I cant think of a better school for me.

      Currently I am on my summer vacation, and honestly, there isnt much relaxation, I had a little bit of a late start because I took an extra math class in the summer to help get more credits done. Now I am working for Kimber Manufacturing in the Metal Injection Molding department. Its a very interesting job to say the least. I love the people, and its pretty easy going. I am learning alot and all the people I work with are great. Not to mention I get to work with my dad so thats pretty sweet. I also get a pretty good salary.

      Now of course we must go to the part where all this professional style writing goes into the shit house and I start telling you about the bad shit going on.
      In the last year at college I have been with one girl for 7 months. I met her in math, we talked, she came over, we fucked, we talked some more, and of course we became girlfriend and boyfriend. Shit was pretty good, I got it in whenever I wanted, she put up with me being an asshole, she cleaned my house, and she personally took it upon her self to apologize for my actions to other people. (which is like a 24/7/365 kinda deal).
      Eventually she started getting to attached and she started becoming to clingy and all this shit to I broke it up. She started crying, coming over trying to talk about why we broke up, threatened to kill her self, lied about being pregnant, all kinds of shit. Anything to make me talk to her. So after a while of just fucking ignoring her she left me alone.

      This all happened like 2 months before I was scheduled to end my summer semester, then I started talk to this one girl Brianne. She is of the legal age, shes cute, and in highschool. So of course a college guy that wants you and looks good is something that is right up her ally. We start talking, I tell her the usual shit, I care about her alot, I dont think of anyone else but her, she is the best thing in my life, I want my relationship to resemble "The Notebook" and OF COURSE I would take a bullet for her. (I mean technically that isnt a lie. I would, really, I would....if it was from a nerfball gun.)

      So then I come home a week ago ready to start making plans. Up until this point we have just been texting, phoning eachother, facebooking, whatever. Saturday we go out to a local mall and we both get horny and start making out in my car. Shes a "new" girl so shes easily excited and starts getting crazy. After a crazy 2 hours in my car, just before Im due to take her home I decide to fuck with her and tell her that I have cancer and I olny have like 7 months to live. (To be honest I really dont know where I was going with this shit.) So she freaks out and the first thing she tells me is "Omg great, so now I dont want to get attached because I'll be a wreck when your gone". THATS THE FIRST THING SHE SAYS. Granted she wasnt the longest dick in the carnival but really? After about 15 minutes I tell her I was lying she gets pissed and I drive her back. Literally, 20 minutes after I drop her off at home she forgets and is into me again.
      Anyway, moving forward. I look at the evidence presented since I started talk to her. The path that she was taking me on was the one that says "I like you and I want a relationship". now, mind you this was based on a bunch of shit. We literally talked everyday, we would tell eachother shit that was pretty personal, she admitted she REALLY liked me, she said stuff like "Your the perfect guy, you care about whats on the inside and not about sex, thats really hard to find." Yeah...I know.

      So I asked her if she wants this relationship, and she goes "I don't see this going anywhere." Well what the fuck was I supposed to do, I'm not sharing a girl between other guys so I told her screw it. And now I am here typing this memorial.
      The moral of this entire story is to understand that all women, no matter what they say, are liars.

      Not olny that, but at any given time, if you look at a thermometer and there is a woman in the room, assume that her IQ is less than or equal to what ever the thermometer reads.

      Like seriously, This is one of the few times, that I have been legit about a girl and she plays me like I did all those pervious sluts in the passed. I guess it just goes to show that I'm just alot better off being an asshole. I just really hope I dont end up with some illegitamate child that ends up being either mentally handicapped or a raging slut. I dont care if hes the biggest asshole on the planet ( I mean it doesnt have to fall far from the tree) but just those two are going to ruin it. Anyway, thats it. Thats all I have. Spend the rest of your day in sheer awe and shock, that a person like me can actually exist.

      I'll post the link later, but I read an interesting article in my English class today that really shocked me.


      Turns out that its healthlier to smoke a pack of cigarettes a week, AND work out for a half hour 3 times a week

      THAN

      To remain stagnant and consume fast food once a week.

      Basically, this is showing that those people who dont do shit will die at home.

      Yes, but before all you testosterone injected horn dogs start going "Finally!" You'll be quite disappointed to know that in this new DLC for last year's hit features not females but a MALE fully nude.

      Why?

      I don't know! But I personally am wondering why they allowed a man to be nude but all of those strip clubs and clothed women!

      Your thoughts?

      That Metroid Prime had the most amazing video game soundtrack of all time. When you actualyl listen through it, its like you can feel the elements of the story around you. The eerie darkness of phazon mines, the chill of phendrana drifts, and the vastness of tallon overworld. What an amazing fucking composition. That game will forever stay in my heart as the best first person adventure. Bottom line. All day, everyday.

      Wegman's is nuts. Where do they have it in PA, State College? Or something like that? I go to PA a lot and I think I heard my grandmother and some old ladies I saw at a library talk about it.

      They opened up one in Virginia and people from all around come to shop there. It's fucking weird.

      Yeah, see thats good and all, but if he raises taxes and puts restrictions on drilling for oil and natural gas, there will be no money to pay the workers with.

      So the answer to your question is WE will be paying for their salaries, because we'll be making over $200,000 a year with our respective jobs.

      It isn't impossible. But polls are always, 100% of the time, biased. Sometimes, by sheer luck, they're correct. But to be honest its hard to hate him already since he isn't actually president yet. I wish him the best, but I sure hope he doesn't pull his radical bullshit. Who knows. He might be ok after all.

      He is definitely not trying to turn this country to socialism....geez have you been talking to ill informed adults?

      He's only one man, and the government has checks and balances that will never allow that to happen.

      This all starts with you, your attitude and what you believe in, if you have a victim attitude then I don't have much respect for you. Educate yourself on how you can make a difference....don't blame others.
