So, a while ago I watched one of Jim Sterling's Jimquisitions where he was talking about CoD: Modern Warfare 3 and why he liked it, unlike the CoD games that came after it, and it actually got me curious about it, sure the game is "old" but it is still loved and played by many and it just so happened that there was a big sale on Steam so I got the whole MW3 package with the DLCs.
And you know what?
It is actually rather enjoyable.
Sure, the game's plot is over the top and such, but I actually find it surprisingly better then the shit that Michael Bay shits out almost every year, hell this game is packed with explosions but there's no constant slow motion whenever something explodes, only at key points and that's absolutely fine, and lets be fair here, the latest CoD game's story, Black Ops 3, got really REALLY weird quickly with all the insane stuff you see and experience later on and that's supposed to be sci-fi.
Plus the sound design is pretty damn good, even the SMGs sound vicious and powerful when you let them rip on the enemy troops in front of you and the music really sets the mood, especially during the intense moments when hordes of Russian troops descend upon you.
This isn't the first time I've had a change of heart about a game, in recent years I've actually opened up to the Manhunt and Postal games, two very violent franchises that I found, at the age I was at when they came out, to be too violent even for me as well as the Devil May Cry reboot DMC, although I will agree on that the Dante in the reboot is a complete unlikable prick without the charm of the original, but other then that I found that game too to be rather enjoyable if you looked past that issue.
Also, here's the Jimquisition video I mentioned:
  • Mood: Neutral
  • Listening to: Various game songs
  • Reading: Comics and books
  • Watching: Bones and The Walking Dead
  • Playing: Various games
  • Eating: Mixed food
  • Drinking: Pepsi Max
Right, I need to move on, can't stay with that bloody low attitude I've been having.
Don't worry, everything's fine, just needed to do something and I feel better now. :)
ANYWAY, my friend :icondevil-d-ind: gave me a great gift this evening on Steam, a copy of the upcoming XCOM 2, the sequel to the reboot of XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
The game is set after when you lost the war against the aliens, humanity made an unconditional surrender to the alien forces and everything appears to be "perfect", but that is only on the surface.
Underneath the sprawling and shining skyscrapers that promise a better future for humanity as a whole, there's something very dark at work courtesy of the aliens and their allies that might spell the end of humanity.
BUT, all hope is not lost for the XCOM group still remains, they may be few for the time being, but in time they'll make more and more people stand up against the oppressive alien government.
They've also got a vessel called the Avenger which is an alien supply craft that's been converted into the XCOM group's HQ, which is very handy as they need to stay on the move otherwise the aliens and their allies will find them easily.
And of course, you'll be doing research and whatnot to improve your soldiers arsenal as the threats get tougher and tougher along with figuring out a way to end this alien occupation once and for all.
Now the game will offer you even more customizing options then what was in Enemy Unknown, you can even give characters monocles if you want.
And another interesting thing to note is that you're still the same commander from Enemy Unknown, you were apparently captured and put in some sort of cryostorage facility where the aliens implanted a device of some sort in you, but you were saved from the aliens by the XCOM group and the device was removed although they do not know what it's for, it might be related to whatever the aliens have planned for humanity though.
Oh and also, he got the Reinforcement Pack for me, which is basically a Season Pass of sorts which is gonna give owners free access to three upcoming DLCs called Anarchy's Children, Alien Hunters and Shen's Last Gift, the last one is most likely gonna be about something left behind by the Chief Engineer Shen from Enemy Unknown for XCOM to use in this war, he's long since passed away when XCOM 2 starts but his daughter shares the same passion as he did for engineering and she wants to help in the battle against the aliens.


The game is supposed to come out on the 5th of February, which is this Friday, I certainly hope they're gonna let us pre-load the game so that we're ready to retake Earth from these wretched alien scumbags.

I'm not sure about who I am anymore these days....
I.... just keep having these ups and downs constantly, am I really the same guy I was years ago?
I can't help but to think of these lyrics from Johnny Cash's Hurt: "What have I become? My sweetest friend, everyone I know goes away in the end."

Something feels wrong with me, mentally, there has to be a reason as to why I keep switch so rapidly from happy to sad and then back again, it just doesn't feel right at all.
Am I bipolar?
I also can't help but to have Simon and Garfunkel's The Sound of Silence play in my head, especially with the starting lyrics: "Hello darkness, my old friend" with how the darkness in my mind's become an all too constant presence :

I really don't recognize myself anymore...
  • Mood: Miserable

  • Drinking: Pepsi Max
As the title says.
I'm sorry to all those who commented, but none of those offers were what I was looking for.
I know some of you meant well, but in the end, those were not what I were after.

I need to ask if there are any artists out there that are taking Point Commissions for inflation sequences?
