Damn you Westwood. You, off my planet!
This weekend I went by my local games pusher and grabbed some sweet looking titles, namely Bungie's Oni and Westwood's Red Alert 2. While Oni was cool and all, I really didn't get a chance to get into all the punch throwing and bullet heavy action as I planned. No, Instead a friend called me and demanded I do the "Online" thing with him.
So anyways, I load up Red Alert 2, and twenty hours later - Here I am.
I really don't have a good review for this game, or even a screenshot, It's not exactly 'zero-day warez' anymore, so I think everything that can be said about it, has been said. Just know I think it's a great sucker of time, not quite a Ever-crack - but for the weekend it had me re-living my StarCraft days. Oh.. Blizzard, where are you now?
Unless you live under a rock like Detroit, you should of seen that Penny-Arcade is back online and making with 'the funny' again. Now I think about it, I need to order a PAWang shirt soon.
I've also picked up Phantasy Star Online, like everyone else in the freaking country. I think Tycho was right in his rant about the size of one's mag. I've determined girl gamers dig mags, and if you don't have a big mag, you are SOL.
Tomorrow I start some new job thing, should be fun, or not. Though I've yet to find a ideal job, one where I get to dispatch the undead my crossbow.
Speaking of which, there hasn't been any new 'destroy the undead' games lately, I can't get my undead-bashing on if there aren't new games for which I can bash them in. Personally, I think we need a new Claire Redfield game, all Claire - all the time.
I'm keeping it short tonight, I need to be up early in the morning and do the 'work' thing. So like, later.
