some kind of an update

Some things that have happened recently... uhm...

I'm moving again soon. Well, October to be exact. Everyone here is tired of dealing with the landlord's crap. She is too cheap and hires workers to fix things that aren't really fixed when they leave. They were going to leave my sink leaking more than it was when they arrived had I not intercepted them and informed them it was still pouring water out the bottom. They also "fixed" our back gate by making impossible to open unless you literally body slam it. Plus the house is old and kind of falling apart. Stuff we want to fix or replaced (our oven isn't broken, but it is literally the worst oven I've ever used in my life) the landlord is just like WELL IT ISN'T BROKEN SO DEAL WITH IT~~ so everyone is done. just done.

Not looking forward to moving (really) but it might be nice to start over again with placement of everything.

Last week was all the E3 stuff. The only thing that consistently made a presence to me was Sunset Overdrive. It's made by my favorite game developer (Insomniac Games, surely people who read this know that already?) and it just looks SO FUN. Anyone who followed my (surely obnoxious) live tweeting of all the e3 stuff probably saw me whine about how it was the game I wanted the most. But... its Xbone exclusive. I don't want an Xbone, I told myself. It's not worth buying an Xbone for ONE game, I said.

Well then on Wednesday morning, Insomniac posted about how they were doing a ~public event~ in Los Angeles showing off Sunset Overdrive, doing giving away some posters (for pre-ordering the game) and some other stuff. I was at work, and I immediately started debating. Should I go? I loved the last Insomniac event I went to, probably the most fun I've had at something in a long long time. Surely it would be similar... right?

Well, I went. AND IT WAS AMAZING. I got to play the game too! IT IS ALSO AMAZING. The mode I got to play was a multiplayer mode, but I got to play with all the weapons it has the I love the colorful art style and fast movements. There is a gun that shoots vinyl records. And another one that shoots explosive Teddy Bears. LIKE REALLY. The worst part (for me) was that the demo came without an inverted Y axis so it was a bit difficult for me to play. I'm one of those people that ALWAYS has to switch the axis. (for those who don't know, it means making the camera controls so down is up and up is down) I don't know why? It's always been that way. Even if I forget to change it when I start playing my camera angle is immediately shoved into the floor and I know why. My brain is just wired that way!! So I kept having to make an extra effort to turn the camera.

I still managed to get 3rd place in my group though. Somehow. I was also in the first group of people ~in the public~ (ie: not E3 attenders) that go to play Sunset Overdrive.

I also got a super cool signed poster...which I unfortunately am unable to share a picture of... becauuuuuuuuse as I'm typing this my cell phone just broke. For... no real reason.

WELL I guess I know what I'm doing for the rest of the afternoon.

Games Year in Review 2013

LOOK ITS THE VIDEO GAME MEME. AGAIN. because someone cares about my game stats. ok maybe its just me thats okay

Take a look at the last two years: 2011, 2012 (ignore that the second one is titled 2013, apparently i forgot how to numbers)

under the cut!!!!!!!!!!! )

i'm still sorry bioshock. someday......~~

too early to judge

antoj: (well)
So turns out Fuse actually is Overstrike but reworked. Insomniac posted a really cool trailer about it last night (a trailer that was originally delayed because of legal issues (sad)). I thought it was awesome. It showed off some of the new weapons that are going to be in the game, and Insomniac's specialty is making crazy awesome weapons, so they look great.

And then a lot of people were being quite negative on it. I didn't understand it. They kept insisting the game was "dead" because they changed the cartoony look to be more realistic? That was it. Said the "humor" was gone and the game was dead all judged off the newer art style. The trailer didn't even have any character dialogue in it. How could they know if it had all the humor removed? OH WAIT. WE DON'T. Insomniac has already said the soul of the game is still there. But everyone is so quick to call it a generic FPS without even seeing anything else.

I started actually commenting to people on youtube about it... Doubt it made much of a difference but at least no one was jerks about it (i've heard people on youtube can be) ...and then somewhere in my replies Insomniac thanked me for being a fan. SO AT LEAST THERE'S THAT. Sigh.

In other news there is no other news. I've just been reading comics and playing games to pass the time. Oh, well, just kidding. There's a new cat in our house but I didn't get very good pictures of him yet, so I won't post any.

the end

all stars

antoj: (Cole Russian)
yes omg look what happened i woke up today and then this
VIDEOS UNDER HERE FOR NEW ALL STARS CHARACTERS THAT ARE RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS )

SUDDENLY I NEED THIS GAME MORE THAN I NEED ANYTHING. ok now all that's left on my all stars wishlist is MOAR INSOMNIAC. ratchet & clank and something from resistance. PREFERRABLY NATHAN HALE but im not sure how many shooter characters they can add w/o it getting stale so i will take a chimera if they don't do hale. JUST SOMETHING GDI.

also i see a lot of people asking for crash bandicoots and spyro and THIS WOULD BE COOL bcuz then all the insomniac and all the naughty dog, but my only problem with this is that they are using the newest costumes for each of these characters (like Jak is Jak 3, and Cole is inFamous 2/etc) so im thinking if they did they'd probs use the fugly new spyro and derp crash AND I DNW. so thats my only problem with that.

but srsly all stars, needs more insomniac and then i will love you forever.

also what else uhm I LIKE THAT COLE'S DEFAULT IN THIS TRAILER IS HERO COLE? that's kind of cool. hero cole is canon dont even question me i am hoping there is alternate costume for original inFamous cole because inFamous 2 cole still has a stupid face. i will never be over it

also in the jak trailer radec uses the stahl arms arc canon and i think i peed a little when i realized it. EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME IS AMAZING.

e3 is tomorrow!!!!!!

E3 IS TOMORROW. I'M SO EXCITED. You can't even comprehend. well maybe you can by the amount of times i've mentioned it.

but i'm posting this to make my list of HOPES AND DREAMS to come out of this. some of these are unlikely, some of them aren't... and some of them are just LOL IN YOUR DREAMS. but i can hope ok.
I LEIK VIDYA GAMES )

best coincidence ever

  • May. 30th, 2012 at 6:31 PM
antoj: (LOL)
today i was at work and bored and i started thinking about upcoming possible game announcement stuff.

then i thought, oh hey, insomniac games could have something, they have at least 3 teams for making games... wouldn't that be cool.

then like 2 minutes later i looked at my phone to find a txt from twitter that was insomniac announcing a new ratchet & clank game. and i was like FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

it was the best timing EVERRRRRRRRRRR.

im excited. also apparently there is a rumor sucker punch might have something for e3. i shouldn't get excited about rumors but if its from sucker punch i hope its infamous and if it is there will be so much fangirling. so much that it might be a danger to me and people around me. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

i think im going to install a count down widget for the sony panel on my phone.

yes.

this post is going to be about video games

  • May. 26th, 2012 at 6:34 PM
antoj: (Smirk)
a week or so ago (I FORGET WHEN :D:D:D) i played the demo for spec ops: the line. AND IT WAS REALLY NEAT. i like the environment, and despite it being in a city that's covered almost entirely with sand (and destroyed by sand storms lol) it's not /all brown/. Not that brown games bug me, but people bitch about it a lot. and i bet people will bitch about that game "being brown" anyway lollo

I'd been watching the preview images/videos for this game for a while now (over a year? i think?) but I hadn't planned on buying it right when it came out... but now thanks to that demo I've pre-ordered it off amazon. oh, and amazon is giving me free $10 for pre-ordering it from them. free amazon money and a game? sold.

I also pre-ordered the new Resistance vita game even though the studio behind it has that terrible "playstation move heroes" game on their roster oh god why BUT I'M TRYING TO GIVE THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. But Insomniac is done... so... :'c I'll have to deal with it.

BUT THIS BRINGS ME TO MY NEXT POINT. I feel like I have too many uncompleted games. TOO MANY. And now I have to decide which one to play next. I'm hoping I can finish two full games before Spec Ops comes out (end of June) i can probably do that. i could probs do more if i wasn't so intent on replaying games i've already played. killzone 3 is a cool guy though.

i have other uncompleted games, but out of the playstation 3 and the Ps vita games, which should I play next!? (also Resistance: Burning Skies isn't out yet, but will be on Tuesday, so i added it anyway)

Also E3 is next week!!! NEXT WEEK!!! NEXT. WEEK.

i don't even know what to expect, other than obvious things, but oh golly gee whiz... i am looking forward to the unknown. btw, if anything inFamous related is announced the internet might implode, and it might be my fault. just a fair warning.

also looking forward to anything from insomniac. hoping to see more of overstrike. :x The devs keep tweeting about playing the game SO I HOPE THEY WILL HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOW AT E3 NEXT WEEK. im too excited.

and i might be getting sick BUT IDC BCUZ VIDYA GAMES.
antoj: (Jayden Outline)
so i got my Resistance 3 poster in the mail today... a delayed gift from Insomniac Games for visiting them at Community Day at the end of March.

They also included a letter, and although it was probably mass-printed, it has my name on it and therefore is the coolest thing ever and I am keeping it forever.

The end of the letter mentions the next community day being in 2012. cant wait man...cant wait. ;-;

now if only that other video game company would make good on its year and a half old promise... oh well time to go play infamous 2 forever.

so leik e3 and stuff....

  • Jun. 6th, 2011 at 7:21 PM
antoj: (HEE HEE)

INSOMNIAC'S NEW MULTIPLATFORM IP: OVERSTRIKE!!! )
overstrike looks so super cool!! I never expected anything less from insomniac (lol fangirl ahoy) BUT SRSLY it looks super interesting already..... ;3; I can't wait to see more from it!!!

NEW INFAMOUS 2 TRAILER!!!! )
AND INFAMOUS 2 TOMORROW FUCK YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA /drop kicks everything/

also cole is getting a cameo in some fighting game on the vita and they gave him like a million steroids. his arms are the size of tree trunks in the game its hilarious. but why do i want it just bcuz hes in it :'c UHHHHHH UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH idk what else to say. just omh look at all the pretty trailers *_*

i'm still not sure about driving down there though. is anyone familiar with that area? its in hollywood... and its going to be in the egyptian theater. idk where that is rly bcuz i never have really been down to that area... :| I'm just assuming parking will be awful. does anyone have any ideas? ANY LOCALS WANNA GIVE ME SOME TIPS? :'D

okay first like...damn it sucker punch.

this does not look like this. It especially does not look like this. seriously "new-new" cole looks more like Nathan Hale than Cole.....that is just sad. cole keeps aging/regressing 10 years here or there. seriously you guys are pissing me off. :'c at least zeke is the same ;-;

seriously though compare magazine cover cole to nathan hale they are like brothers now. what the fuck sucker punch. i mean insomniac and hale is a cool guy yea but FOR REALS!? did naughty dog get mad at your drake-cole so you made a hale-cole instead? is that what im seeing here?

words meme under cut: (from [livejournal.com profile] okapifeathers PS3, Pokemon, Cats, Hallmark (SORRY OK), and Zeke (easy mode: don't mention pairings/ Hard mode: Don't mention Cole))

antoj: (Help)
I want to say a few things here.

1) I FINISHED GHOSTOPOLIS AND IT WAS REALLY GOOD AND YOU GUYS SHOULD GO CHECK IT OUT BECAUSE ITS SO COOL ITS MAKING ME TYPE IN ALL CAPS. TenNapel's art is amazing and some of the stuff he writes makes me lol so much. SERIOUSLY HE WROTE INSULTS IN THERE LIKE HOW I SAY THEM.

2) [livejournal.com profile] infamous_ps3 you should join this because its an infamous comm i made to post things in. i made it partly to stop spamming my LJ with shit no one cares about, ok. sorry no resistance outlet, because only two people on all of LJ like resistance and they are on my flist so deal with it

3) I stole a meme from [livejournal.com profile] sykoryoko and IDK if I will do all of it because some of it has stuff I would never like to talk about, jsyk, but we'll see how it goes. I might skip some days or be like fuck you in the face, meme, i don't have to do what you say.

BUT WITH THAT.

DAY ONE- INTRODUCTION
the rest is under here )
Also the sun is setting over my tv RN so I can't play any ps3. ;-; crai crai crai.

lol the amount of tags on this entry. it needs moar.

antoj: (I don't even)
stop teasing me, insomniac, this hurts ok. /sad violin. though I guess they've been doing this.

in other news

I REALLY

WANT

A SHINY MAGIKARP PLUSH. but i can't find one. I also shouldn't spend money on one but lololol i kind of want johto charms too but i don't want gyarados. :'c sad.

that reminds me that i totally never play soul silver anymore, but instead just use it to update my pokewalker. :'D lololollolol. cole's magikarp is level 25 or something now.

and i'm also annoyed that the sun doesn't wanna come out anymore cuz I need to get pictures of the rest of my infamous shit for that website I'm trying to make. I KIND OF DONT WANT SHAT PICTURES BUT NOOOOOOO.

yep yep this post is pretty much pointless, i just wanted to say how much i am sitting over here clinging to my computer screen while obsessively refreshing my email/twitter for news from insomniac. :I AUGUST IS THE MONTH. AUGUST IS THE MONTH best month ever.

one more thing: PS3 is the official console of new zealand: and its all because of kevin butler. i hope sony never gets rid of kevin butler. he is the best.
