When soundtracks attack by Enemyonwheels on Fri Sep 20, 2013 10:58 am
Been a while since I blogged so I trawled my memory and came up with a topic that, hopefully, some of you will identify with.

How often has hearing an in game sound or piece of music in real life triggered an inappropriate thought pattern associated with the game.

Here's a couple of examples to illustrate.

I used to play a whole lot of extreme sports games (Tony Hawk pro skater, Dave Mira BMX etc) and knew the soundtracks by heart. Back then I couldn't afford a car so I used to ride a Bicycle to work and listen to a Walkman as I rode. I always remember riding down a huge hill at high speed and then blood brothers by Papa Roach came on. I instantly switched to gaming mode anf just for a second was looking for ramps and rails to trick off.

The second example is a lot more recent but the game was a lot longer ago. A few months ago I was working outside in my current job. Another business near me had some sort of incident that set off their fire alarm. The alarm sounded exactly like the...

Gunslingers by Hunterdeal on Fri Oct 18, 2013 12:55 pm
Brand new green horn in the Gunslingers clan. Glad to be here. Hoping to find a good bunch of BOPS2 players for now and in the very near future hoping to play X360 Ghosts followed by the Xbox One Ghosts. Lots of virtual death in my near future.

The One Where I Cheese Crota by Handil on Mon Dec 22, 2014 3:02 pm
So, I was doing my best to solo Crota's End last night when I was invited to a Crota Cheese group. I say cheese, but if you are familiar with the method, it is glitching and most would consider it cheating (I do). For the first time, I felt like I was doing something wrong.

Now, mind you, I cheesed Atheon and all of the VoG after completing it legitimately. I have soloed Crota's End up to the deathsinger, or whatever her name is (and completed the entire raid legitimately). These have all felt like creative use of systems Bungie left in place or was too lazy to thoroughly test.

Using an exploding lantern to shoot me across a map seems like a creative use of in game mechanics, not cheating, to me. But the Crota fight... having a player quit the game to freeze the main boss in place, and then wailing away at him... feels entirely different. There is *some* skill needed to make it work, I guess, but only maybe 25% of the skill it takes to do it legit.

Anyway, after it was all said and done,...

Killzone tribute tour! by sowayan on Mon Mar 24, 2014 12:51 pm
Stop one on the Killzone tribute tour is complete. In honor of my love for the series, I'm running through Killzone, Killzone 2, Killzone 3 and Killzone: Shadowfall campaign modes. What a fantastic series! It is kinda like the history of 20th century Europe told through a sci-fi lens. Unfortunately, I do not have a Vita so I'll have to skip Killzone: Mercenary.

Just got accepted into the GS Club on xBox Live yesterday but haven't been on since then. This I'll be plugging in my system while working outside to let it download the update and have it ready for tonight. Hope to see some of you on. I will have my mic ready.
