Now this is not a hate thread but I am confused as all hell.
When Darksiders came out I went and picked it up and about half way through it and couldn't stomach it. Just not my sort of game. Now don't get me wrong I love Zelda/God of War (which is what everyone compares this too) but I just didn't feel Darksiders. Now I understand that there are games that I just don't like and everybody else loves, but I was not under the impression that Darksiders was one of these, and was not shocked to see when I watched reviews for it and the highest score I saw it receive was an 8.
Fast forward to now.
Is it just me or are all the reviewers saying they hated Darksiders 1 now saying that Darksiders 2 looks like the best game of the year and they were huge fans of the first?
Is Darksiders 2 going to be that good and I should buy it and give it another go?
Was I constricting criticism into dislike for the game because I was not a fan?
Am I being hypersensitive to the hype?
Help me out guys.

Prepare for a whiny rant people (all 0 of you)
Fitting in has always been a touchy subject for me, and a lot of the time the fact is I don't fit in. I don't mean the hipster "Oh my god, I don't fit in", I mean that legitimate of feeling like no one cares, that no one has the same interest as you, the feeling that something is wrong with you. Growing up (so far) has been a roller coaster of good and bad, and I like to think that over all I have tried to be a nice person on my own level. I try to care for the environment, smile and be polite, and help people in need that I can and I try not to judge. But I don't want this to turn into "Look how great a person I am" cause that is not true by a long shot. I'm not a saint, and there are a lot of people who do more amazing things than me by breakfast than I have done my entire life time. In fact, a lot of the time I feel the complete opposite.
I feel worthless.
Since my childhood, I have considered my self different, but the last few years have concreted that in my mind.
I do not like sports.
I do not like seeing other people sad.
I do not like seeing someone bullied.
I'm not a fan of change.
I do not like alcohol.
I do not like cigarettes.
I do not like being a complete sleaze to girls.
I feel like all of these things over the last few years have alienated me from my child hood friends.
Especially my best friend, who is now addicted to multiple drugs and does not even spend time with me anymore.
And if I'm being completely honest, I don't like my self.
I like to read, and write.
I like stories of all kinds.
I like being alone.
I like video games.
I like being creative.
I like my bed.
I like Erica.
I'm contradictory and selfish though, I don't help others enough, but no matter how much I try to change this I still judge, and generally just feel like I'm a shitty person.
I'm seeing a light at the end of the tunnel though, and two things have helped a lot. Erica and of course the Rooster Teeth Community. I've rambled enough in a previous journal about how amazing both of these things are so I'll leave it at that.
I just hope the world is different out side of this, I hope there's something, I don't know.
Whenever I feel like this I think of RTOZ, and how great everyone there was. But then I start to over analyse again. What if they were just being polite.
What if they were just being so nice because they don't know me yet.
I guess I'll never know.
"Enough of this depressing teen drama."
Moving on, I have trial exams tomorrow, which I am absolutely petrified about. I can't sleep ever and constantly feel my heart beat rise and rise. And then I feel empty, like a husk, for about five minutes.
And then I remember exams again. -.-
It doesn't help that my "friends" have now turned 18 and can now pursue their favourite hobby (getting overly intoxicated and then rub up against each other) legally. I felt left out before at parties, but at least I was allowed to attend if I so pleased. I am not 18 until next year, and therefore cannot go to the "pub".
Yes, that means I'll be 17 at Uni.
Oh god, what if I don't get in. How disappointed everyone will be in me.
How disappointed I will be in my self.
"Damn, I thought I said ENOUGH of the sappy shit"
Sorry imaginary rational conscious.
My life is constantly moving these days, in less than 6 months I'll be living by my self in Newcastle, a place I barely understand, with no friends (just for a change) trying to learn a course that I hope to God I understand, away from the only person I really love.
Jesus, reading over this I sound like more of a whingey bitch than I thought.
But I guess this is what this is, a whiney rant.
I'm sorry for posting this, but this is how I'm feeling at the moment, and I know if anyone on the internet could provide some insight, it'd be on Roooster Teeth.
Sometimes you just feel better writing stuff down, even if no one ever reads, you know?
I don't know, do you know? Or is it just me? Ahhhhh.
I'm sure I'll be back to my witty self in no time.
I'm sorry, I'm just stressed.
I hope everyone is okay with everyone and that you are all having a wonderful week
Adios, for now.

Test, is this thing on?
I've never written one of these before, but I think I have some reasonable interesting things that could make this readable.
The weekend that just passed, on Saturday night (16th of June, 2012) I had one of the best nights of my life.
This night was RTOZ 2012.
Now, I have been an avid fan of Rooster Teeth for a long time, but I have never gotten that involved in the community that I took so much for granted, well now that is going to change.
When I found out that my idol, Burnie Burns, and the young Gavin were coming to RTOZ I quickly purchased a ticket, and convinced my amazing girlfriend Erica to accompany me, as I was hesitant about being around hundreds of people I did not know.
So at 5 pm on Saturday, after a 4 hour drive to Sydney from my small country town, Erica and I stood out the front of the venue in the pouring rain in an ever growing line.
After an hour or so we made it inside, where we found a quiet seat by our selves, and sat alone. I was scared of socialising and petrified that Erica was having the worst time ever. However in a matter of minutes this all changed.
Within an hour Erica and I had made up to 10 new friends from our awesome community, whom were all up for great conversation. As the night went on, we socialised, entered bowling competitions (see here), watched as our really drunk community members sang Queen (see here) and danced like queens (see here ), played some laser tag, ate delicious food and just had fun. And then the highlight of my night happened.
Erica and I were having so much fun, we'd completely forgotten about Gav and Burnies appearance, but as screams and cheers erupted, we saw them walk in the door. As hundreds crowded around them, I stood in shock and awe of seeing two people I respected so much for the first time. After about 5 minutes of me acting like an idiot and saying that I didn't want to speak to them Erica pushed me through the crowd, and before I knew it I was face to face with my idol, Michael Burns. I smiled, shook his hand and introduced my self. He did the same, and then proceeded to have a conversation with me. He and Gav then let me get some photos with them (see my photo gallery) signed my RvB season 1 and thanked me for coming out. I remember thinking to my self "Why are they thanking me?" as I walked away, and I watched as for the next two hours, after working in a booth all day at Supanova, they conversed with hundred of other fans like the great guys they are. This was one of the best nights of my life, and one I'll never forget.
But the main purpose of this journal is to thank certain people. Firstly my amazing girlfriend Erica, for being extremely open minded and supportive of everything I do. And secondly everyone who worked, volunteered and attended RTOZ. You are all amazing, especially Caiti and Justin.
I doubt they will read this, but thank you so so much, for helping me meet my hero. I don't think you could ever comprehend how happy you are making some people by doing exactly what you are doing, it is pure brilliance and hopefully one day I can help as well.
Keep up the absolutely amazing work, you did such a fantastic job.
So I guess that's it for my first journal, in conclusion I had a fantastic night and was reminded why I love this community so freaking much.
I also recorded the entire RTOZ 2012 panel in HD and I just need a little bit of free time to upload it but I'll do it ASAP
