      Anybody heard of it? IF not, I'm afraid since I have had 12.5 hrs sleep in the last 3 days and done 10 hrs hard work (I had sunday off :D ) Its a nex-gen star-wars game, "wow" is the only word that comes to mind! I'm too tired to go find a link for ye, but if you havent seen either of the two videos I have seen about it, do that right now. Infact I'm ending this journal right now so you can. smiley0.gif

      've recently been thinking about xbox 360's achievements, and while most of the talk I have heard is praise for them, I really disagree.

      People tend to play games now 'to unlock the achievements' and theres no fun left at all! Heaven forbid you save a guys life in an FPS and 'steal their kill' or else you will get flamed and screamed at because 'they were trying to get the 100 kills with a sniper achievement' or some such. I have even played games recent in shadowrun, where people actually team-kill at the spawn just to try and get the "triple rez" achievement or the "rez 100 team-mates". Whats the point? People stop playing games when they have all 1000 of the gamerscore worth of achievements unlocked, because 'theres no point in playing them when they are 'finished' ' and nobody plays for fun anymore! I only really realised this myself in full when i got mario strikers for the wii, and i thought to myself "I'm playing this for fun, not to unlock anything or get a higher score than other people by being a dick!" I even know some people who have a Ps3 and a 360 and will get the game on the 360 just for the achievements...

      We have almost all done it anyways, had a choice of two different missions or the like in a game, and picked the one where you unlock more achievements, or buy a certain weapon at the start of a round to get that achievement, so overall, I think it makes the whole xbox 360 community way too aggressive and compettitive when it comes to playing games, since there is a bit of an heir of "I have a higher gamerscore than you therefore I'm obviously better than you so go away" around xbox live.

      There are some pro's to the arguement aswell I suppose, such as working to achieve these things, and having evidence to show your friends that you did infact beat that game on insane mode, but I don' think that its worth taking the fun away from gaming.

      What do you think? Post responses below!

      I am fairly stressed over studying at the moment, since I have no concentration whatsoever when it comes to studying by my own innitiative, but once thursday rolls around, it will all be over, nice loooong summer. No school till september FTW?

      Also, knowing me, I will prolly be on halo 3 over the weekend if you need me. Although I cant imagine why you would :P.
      Also note that if you can read this then put the phrase 'Xbox 360 > Ps3' in your comment for mods.

      Rocks my socks!

      Zomg its actually amazing. Theres not a single thing I can find that i dislike about it! (except for arrogant american youths who scream trash talk for no aparant reason!) Theres some new medals to add onto the 'double kill, triple kill....' chain too...

      Linky

      Oh and this is one of my better games so far!

      Just wow, thats all i can say about the beta as a whole! If you have any questions post a comment here and I'll get back to you with any answers i can give!

      [Color=randomfact]Cool this is my one hundred and Seventy fourth Journal!

    • Just a Poll...

      12 years ago

      Sodman

      Out of those people out there getting halo 3 (not the beta, i mean the full game released in november), which of the three versions available are you realistically going to buy?

      A) Standard edition (halo 3 disk)
      B) Limited edition (above plus special disk of added footage and commentaries etc)
      C) Legendary edition (Above plus an extra additional second special disk of similar footage, along with a fist-sized spartan helmet and a cool looking case)

      Personally im not sure, since its a once off purchase I'm tempted to buy the legendary edition, but the price tag is probobly going to be at least twice the standard edition of the game, and I know one of my friends will be getting it anyway, so i could just borrow the second bonus disk, and It would be a no brainer for me to get it if the helmet was life-sized, but the fact that it wouldn't even fit my dog is a bit of a bitch. Logically it looks like i'll get the limited edition, but if i can get my hands on a legendary edition in the shop on the day of release (im not ordering it online for 1-3 weeks shipping! fuck that!) then I might shamefully get that.

      What about you peeps?

      Instead of editing the last journal, i decided to be a dick and create a new one smiley0.gif

      Just a short one to tell you, that This
      is what happens when i go 2v1 against a guy in FFA slayer in headlong. Whats different about that you say? Oh right, I was playing as both me and my guest, using one hand for each controller. (didnt use two hands on a single controll for entire game). Didnt actually start killing my friend for the first 50 mins or so lol, just driving around in the warthog and gunning at the same time, then we actually decided to turn it into a deathmatch for the rest of the game, except that I wasnt aloud kill my guest (also me) or vice versa. First and second place out of 3 FTW! Pity that my left hand fragged himself 4 times from pressing my controll against my knee by mistake and throwing a nade at the ground infront of me and running into it smiley2.gif . For my right hand (Sodman74 guest) I switched the tumbstick layout and trigger layout so that i could have some sort of symetry hehe. Overall left hand did better disregarding the 4 suicides smiley0.gif

      The deployable turret things, can they be manned stationary (like regular turrets) or do you have to pick them up? Also are the stationary guns on snowbound destructable?
      You can leave them stationary but once you pick them up (B) you can't have it become a stationary again. And the guns on snowbound are not distructable and will kick your ass if you try and get past them

      Oh yeah and also are all the halo 2 emblems still there for multiplayer avatars?
      I think they are all there.
