…makes Loz go crazy!
(This first part was intended for tuesday, but my internet once again decided to give up)
I have been without internet for 3 days or so over the weekend and have only finally been able to get back online since monday night, hence the lack of posts. I managed to spend my time over the weekend to componsate the lack of internet by spending it with friends, otherwise I may have gone crazy. I went to see Rob during the day on saturday and then had another mate over later that night for some Rock Band. The plan orginally was to go out drinking, but my university really is lacking. We headed down a pub before going to the Student Union to do a bit of pre drinking, only to discover that they were doing some refurbing in one of the bars and the other was completely closed. So instead we walked back to mine and played a good 4 hours or so of Rock Band.
(Moving up to date)
So yes, my internet has been pulled away from under me and has left me with very little to do. I’ve started playing through Army of Two on the hardest difficulty and found it to be awfully unforgiving. There are certain encounters where it seems like you aren’t supposed to get through it. The encounters are long and difficult and checkpoints seem to be rarer than rocking horse shit. You find yourself playing a single encounter for 25minutes or so only to be screwed over by bad AI of your partner and then find out that you have to start over again. Very challenging, but it feels very satisfying to get a pistol shot to a guys head from 100ft away.
Asides from AoT, I’ve also borrowed Spaced series 1 and 2 from a friend and will be watching through some more of it over the weekend. He also leant me the Doom film. I don’t have high expectations for it so I’m not even going to give it too much time in this post. After seeing Sin City for the first time earlier this week, Doom doesn’t look to be adequate. I’ve also been up to date with Heroes and The Big Bang Theory, of which both are awesome. Heroes is moving very quickly in character and story progression and TBBT continues to be hillarious in its quirky way.
I think I’m going to be very busy this weekend. I have a load of uni related stuff to do, along with watch the rest of Spaced, watch Doom, finish AoT, play through GTA IV and Mass Effect aswell as the occasional sociable game of Halo 3.
I don’t think I’m going to be able to do all of that in 2 days…
