I'm back!

After not posting all summer so far, I have decided to start posting again, and now I have more to write about. I'm going to do two things in this post: one is suggest to anyone who is even remotely a MW2 fan to check out this video, and please subscribe to him. He just lost 2 of his Youtube accounts to hacking and wants to get his fan base back, plus he is one of the best and most accrurate snipers ever, and a great editor. He is also in Optic, which is a sniper clan on MW2.

Second, other than just suggesting a guy playing MW2 and calling it a day, I am also going to give you a reivew and the reivew is of...............my favroite RPG for Xbox 360, one of the best storylines I have ever seen in a video game, and my favroite game of 2010 (so far): Assassin's Creed 2! This is obviously a sequel to Assassin's Creed, which everyone wanted to like because of the idea and the awesome storyline, but it was sooooo repetitive, had its share of glitches, and there was no economic system (no money whatsoever in fact).

But this is a review about the second game, not the first game. Assassin's Creed 2 is set in modern-day time in the beginning, but then you use a machine called the Animus to go back into your ancestors' memory. Your family and ansestors are a long line of assassins, but not your thanks-for-the-money-I'm-gonna-kill-him assassins, more like an order set to protect and serve everyone by watching and assassinating any evildoers in power. Anyways you learn how to be a modern-day assassin when you're in the Animus. You go from 1476-1479 (teenager) through 1500 (early middle-aged) in reniassance Italy. They fixed all the problems with the first game and more. And there are over a hundred side-things (things being quests, races, and tombs to name a few) to do, along with collecting disks to unlock the guy from the first game's armour (best armour in the game and fun and hard to get) You have to go into these tombs and get through beating the challenges to get them).

There are plenty of different weapons, equipment, and armour to unlock and buy. Gameplay is a bit complicated, but no matter. It's in 3rd person. There are a few bugs, mainly audio such as repetitive noise and not hearing for a while in comversations (which only happend to me 2-4 times). You should totally play with the subtitles on because if you don't then when they start going on banters of Latin then you may miss something funny or interesting. Anyways this is a total "Buy it!" if you like that sort of game. If you've played through the first one it makes more sense in the beginning and whenever you leave the Animus, but that's all.

Savage The Battle For Newearth 14 Of 20

Savage The Battle For Newearth for PC and Linux. 14 out of 20.

It is a fun online game. It has plenty of bugs, glitches, and faults, and there is no campaign. But it is a free downloadable game. It's a humans vs. beasts game with the beasts looking like furry slouching big humans.

This was the first game I played a lot. I played it on our Linux computer, and then on PC once we got one, because on Linux the sound didn't work.

The humans have a mix of technology like chemistry, electricity, and magnetism, and some wooden stuff too. And the beasts have a mix of elements and magic such as strata shrines (wind), fire shrines (fire, duh), and entropy shrines (earth and healing I guess), and so on. It's a simple game of destroy the enemies' stronghold. The very cool thing is that they have a mix of FPS and 3rd person combat and a Warcraft-style commander with workers. All in all it is a good game if you just want to relax and play around.

I also sugest the noobs4boobs servers because you go super fast and can jump high and all the weapons are unlocked when you start.

If you want to find me on Savage, I play on noobs4boobs and my name will either be 123 sniper or dryst (I haven't been using dryst on Savage lately).

thanks for reading,

Modern warfare 2 prestigeing again

Modern Warfare 2

I have reached 2nd prestige and so far it's really no different from first prestige except some titles and such. I think every other prestige is the one where you get a lot of stuff, which makes sense.

In Modern Warfare 2 you get to chose 5 custom classes with a primary weapon (assault rifles, sub machine guns, light machine guns, sniper rifles, and riot shields) and a secondary weapon (pistols, shotguns, machine pistols, and launchers). You also get equipment (frag grenades, land mines, throwing knifes, and such), special grenades (flash grenades, stun grenades, or smoke grenades), perks (such as move faster, reload faster, and increased melee distance), and death streaks (such as drop a live grenade on death, and increased health for 10 seconds when you respawn). Every other prestige you get a new class slot.

OK, on to other matters. I am going to have my best friend reviewing a game in the near future, and hopefully I will be reviewing Fallout 3 soon.

Thanks for reading.

Modern Warfare 2 stimulus package

Modern Warfare 2 stimulus package for Xbox 360:
info: maker Infinity Ward

This is an update for the Xbox 360 with 5 new maps, 3 completely new maps and 2 from Modern Warfare 1. They are all fun maps and I would say worth getting, although I wish they would integrate the new maps and the old maps together. Like for example when you are searching for a game in team deathmatch and you do have the map pack there is just as much of a chance that you will get to play one of them as you would the normal maps and if you don't have the map pack then you can't join a lobby playing one of those maps. I think it would make it much better if they were integrated.

If you want to have some fun with a not-game-changing glitch, mainly on crash but on the other maps too, jump on to a car from a second story window or balcony and when you land on the car the car will explode. I don't know if they fixed this glitch or not because I have not tried it in the past few days.

Modern Warfare 2 Part 2, Prestigeing

Prestigeing and what it really does:
It seems that Infinity Ward is particularly unclear on what prestigeing is and what it does. And they almost make it sound like a bad thing. Which has led to some people (in my experience) not doing it, so I'm going to try to explain what the good and the bad things about it are from my perspective.

I am only first prestige, almost second, so I will tell you what you get for first now, and second in a little while when I earn it (very soon!).

Heres what you gain for first prestige:
- you go back to level 1 with pretty much what you started the game with (I say you go back to level one but you can also look at it as level 71 because in "no prestige" you go from 1 through 70, so it could be called back to 1 71 or level 1 prestige)
- you get to keep all your titles and emblems
- you get a extra class slot
- you get a new group of challenges called prestige
- you get 2 new challenges for each weapon which will unlock new weapons titles
- you get the ability to earn secondary weapon titles
- you get many new titles along the way which you could never get if you were not prestige

So, then, what's bad about prestigeing? I don't thing think there is anything bad about it except maybe that you lose all your weapons and weapon attachments (oh, and you lose your custom class names, lol!).

Leave a comment if you want and add me as a friend on xbox 360 live if you want.

Madden NFL Arcade Demo 14-20

Madden NFL Arcade Demo 14 out of 20

I only got to play the demo and I will give a full review and info once I get the full game but just playing the demo I think it's a great little time passer. A 5-on-5 arcade-style football game for xbox 360 arcade. It's played on a 60 yard field with no first downs. And a chance for either team to get a power-up. Real fun. My strategy is to select any type of pass (I usually use deep for this strategy) then either pass it for real or run it with the quarterback. My favorite power-up (or game changer) is either instant fumble or slow-mo. Like I said, I will give more info on dates of making and more info on power-ups once I get the full game.

In the news, they are making a map pack for Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy.

Modern Warfare 2, 18 out of 20

Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2. release date November 10, 2009. Infinity Ward on xbox 360 rated Mature

rated by the people at Gameophyle (which right now is only me, xD) - 18 out of 20.

An amazing game! Probably the best game I've ever played on the xbox 360 so far. The campaign is EPIC. The special ops is VERY fun and challenging. And the multiplayer is great and SUPER addictive, and the leveling system for multiplayer is awesome. Some of the things about multiplayer could use a couple of changes, such as getting rid of 3rd person cage matches (because it's a 1 on 1 with party chat so they can talk to each other, so all they do is cheat and take turns killing each other and get their rank up that way). Not that I'm bitter against them or anything :) This game is totally worth getting if you're looking for an amazing shooter type game.
