    • Semester 1 Complete + Games

      8 years ago

      PvtChurch007

      I finished the first semester of my second year. I have received most of my results so far and I'm sure I passed. I did well considering I was doing assignments up until the day of my exam so I had very little time to study.

      I played Portal 2 a while ago as well and it is yet another great game with great humor. It's better and a bigger game then the first one.

      I have been playing L.A. Noire and I think it's a superb game. Rockstar make very good open world games and I'm glad Team Bondi did something a little different by having you play as a good detective. It's a different kind of game which is appreciated. Investigating crime scenes, interviewing witnesses and interrogating suspects is a challenge but is very rewarding when you get it right. I got this on PS3 so I don't have to change discs. It all fits on one blu-ray and I would highly recommend it.

      I have also been playing Torchlight on XBLA since it went on special. It's a familiar kind of action RPG that is easy to just pick up and play. When you exit it saves exactly where you were, A cool feature is that you don't have to travel back to town to sell the useless items you have gathered, you can give them to your pet and send him to town. You won't have your pet to back you up in fights for 2 minutes but it's very handy. There is also a lot of customization in the way you play. For a while I was using a pistol in one hand and a sword in the other. This allowed me to shoot for as long as possible then automatically change to melee when an enemy got close. You can use 2 of any 1 handed weapon; Pistols, magic wands, swords etc. You can also have a shield instead of a second weapon. This is a great XBLA game and is worth at least downloading the trial.

      I have also got back into Borderlands. It is still awesome and I don't think there is anything like it. It's probably one of my favorite games ever. The Game of the Year edition has all of the DLC and is really cheap. If you missed it and you like shooters and RPGs, get it.

      That's about it. Bye.
      P.S. The new Red vs Blue is great, as always smiley0.gif

    • Update?

      8 years ago

      PvtChurch007

      So I thought i should post a journal since I posted my last journal in 2009 around Christmas.

      I am in my second year of a Computer Science Degree at the Bay of Plenty Polytech. I'm doing things like Programming and Internet and Web Development.
      Basically this course allows me to get a Degree from Waikato University while getting 2 diplomas from BoP Polytech in the process.
      I have just started my second year but I'm sure it will be more challenging. We will be learning about HTML, CSS and Javascript in one of my subjects.

      I now own a PS3 and have been enjoying the Ratchet and Clank PS3 series, Resistance and more recently the Killzone 3 Beta. The multiplayer of Killzone 3 is a lot like Bad Company 2. If your team doesn't work together than you will probably lose. Killzone 3 has a class system similar to BC2, classes that have important roles to play. Medics, Engineers and Tacticians are vital in objective games. The full game should be amazing.

      On the Xbox side, I have been playing Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and CoD: Black Ops. Both are great games. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood was probably my favourite game of 2010.

      There are a lot of great games coming out this year. The PS3 is going to have a great year in games. Microsoft seems to only have a few exclusives this year but I wouldn't count them out just yet.

      I'll update more often..... maybe.

    • Merry Christmas.

      PvtChurch007

      Merry Christmas everyone. I got some great presents this year, a new 360 Controller with a rechargeable battery. I have one controller that has 2 buttons that don't work and a rechargeable battery that doesn't last 10 seconds, so this was needed and very much appreciated.
      I got Assassins Creed 2 and Batman: Arkham Asylum, which i can't wait to play.
      I also got some nice Logitech speakers which work very well.

      We were away in Taupo for a week and right before we left we found out that our neighbours had all their presents stolen from under their tree. When we got back, our outside room which is my dads music room, was broken into. A few amps and guitars were stolen. smiley2.gifsmiley4.gif
      We have insurance i think, so they should be replaced.

      I hope everyone has a great and safe Christmas smiley0.gif

    • Xbox Is Back!

      9 years ago

      PvtChurch007

      My Xbox has been repaired and I finally got to finish MW 2. I played it pretty much all day.
      I had to plug in the old PS2 in the last 2 or so weeks. I finished Ratchet and Clank 3. I stopped playing it ages ago because i got stuck on a certain level. That series was great and if I ever get a PS3 I'll get Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction and A Crack in Time.

      I have finished all of my exams now. I should have passed NCEA level 3 but I'll have to wait for the results to get back to be certain.

    • Finished school!!

      9 years ago

      PvtChurch007

      Today was my last day at College. I did pretty much nothing in class. I played some games on my iPod Touch which I got for my Birthday last week. It was a good day.

      After school I played some Xbox, split-screen on Borderlands and COD MW2. While playing Borderlands, the Xbox froze and our progress wasn't saved. After restarting a few times and the game freezing, a single red light appeared. After that appeared it wouldn't read discs at all. So I left it to go to our school's senior Prize-giving. When I got back I tried to get it working. Then three red lights started flashing. smiley2.gif
      The day after I get MW2, the last day of school and my Xbox gets the three red lights. Probably the worst timing ever.

      On the good side I won't be distracted while studying for my exams. It's not much of a good side...
      Just 3 exams then I'm free. My 1st one is on Monday and my last one is on the 26th.

    • Update time.

      9 years ago

      PvtChurch007

      I went up to the Armageddon last week with a few friends. We watched some panels with voice actors. They were incredibly funny, as well as the Robot Chicken creators. We ended up buying a couple robot chicken DVD's and it is a very funny show. I played Left for Dead 2. I saw poor guy get jumped on by a Jockey and another get charged into a wall by a Charger. I also saw some guy killing zombies by swinging an electric guitar. It should be much better than the first.

      I got Borderlands last week. I have a level 40 Hunter. He has the ability to send out Bloodwing which is like an eagle who attacks enemies in quick swoops. I have upgraded him so he targets 9 instead of the default 1. And has a cool down time of 10 seconds instead of the default 28. Bloodwing is a legend. I highly recommend this game.

      In terms of school, i have my final exams in 2 weeks or so. I am going to pass Economics, I'm doing better in physics so I'm relatively confident that i will pass that. I have my design folio board to hand in not this Monday but next. I have designed everything and all i need to do is lay my board out. If i manage to do this I have basically passed NCEA Level 3.

      This is my last year in college. Last year doing subjects that do not interest me. Next year I hope to be doing a Bachelor of Science, doing computing.

    • Microsoft E3 Conference.

      10 years ago

      PvtChurch007

      So I woke up at 5 am on a school day to watch Microsofts E3 conference. it was worth it. every thing shown was awesome and i cannot wait for Halo 3; ODST and Halo Reach. The Fall of Reach happened before Halo 1. Basically there were lots of spartans around. Playing as different spartans with different abilities would be epic.

      Project Natal looked awesome and Lionhead produced a very well done demo of it. That technology is amazing.
      Also Left 4 Dead 2, Crackdown 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Alan Wake all look really cool.

      It will be hard for Sony or Nintendo to top that. Good luck to both of 'em.

      In school related news. I did ok in the mid year exams. Failed physics. it was hard. We have been doing experiments based on measuring time on the topic of mechanics then for the exam we have a totally different experiment based on light and waves and measuring distances and focal lengths. We haven't even started Light and Waves this year. It was kind of unfair.

      Doing great in programming. I'm ahead of most of the class but most of people in my class are lazy and/or stupid.

      So yea, see ya smiley0.gif

    • Short Update.

      10 years ago

      PvtChurch007

      So i just finished my first term of school for the year. The subjects im doing are: Calculus, Physics, Economics, Computer programming and Design.
      I've done ok in school for the first term. some new stuff is hard but im getting the hang of it.

      I got Halo Wars when it came out so I've been having fun with that and the new Halo 3 maps.
      I've been playing some Peggle and Rock band as well.

      so yea, just a short update.

    • Holidays.

      10 years ago

      PvtChurch007

      So we went away for the week prior to Christmas. We went down to Taupo, we got to swim in the lake and go to the mineral pools and stuff. It was a great break.
      Christmas was great, great Christmas lunch and great presents. I got Left 4 Dead and Prince of Persia. Both are great. Left 4 Dead is really creepy. Several times i turned around to see if anything was there and there was a zombie right there, all in my face.But my sister got Rock band and we have been playing it a lot. It's awesome.

      So yea, my holidays have been fine.
      Hope everyone had a great holiday. See ya later.

    • Holidays, glorious holidays.

      10 years ago

      PvtChurch007

      I have just finished my physics exam. My last exam of the year. that gives me roughly 2 months and 2 weeks holidays. Plenty of time for Gears 2 and Call Of Duty World at War. Both are very good games btw.

      People say World at War is inferior to Modern Warfare. But i dont think this is the case. World at War shows the more gruesome side of war. The final scene where you plant the Russian flag in Berlin, well I wont spoil it beyond that but its very awesome. The Story is more immersing. The characters are better developed etc. If you liked Modern Warfare you will like World at War too. Treyarch did a good job.

      Well im off to play Xbox.

      Hey, did you hear already about tonights Monday night lunar eclipse, it is supposed to be a full eclipse of the moon, I am not totally sure when it is supposed to be visible for all of us here in the central time zone, but I think it is supposed to begin around 11pm "approx" first the moon will turn sort of orange and then go black, and it will be a long time before it comes back out again, it will be cool.

      info about the eclipse can be read here...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/December_2010_lunar_eclipse
