My birthday in

Blog

Not written one of these in a while, so thought while a had a free minute or two i’d try to pump one of these out. Currently bogged down with uni work…which reminds me that i had an essay due in 10 days…oops. Ahh well. Things are going really well in my life at the moment, got a wonderful girlfriend and things are going really well between the two of us.

For those of you who don’t know my past i’ve been really unhappy for a long time but i’m sooo happy at the minute and I expect it to go on for quite a while, hopefully. I got some pretty cool presents for xmas off her as well including some lovely dog tags and a 360 skin which is beautiful. I’m not gonna ruin it by putting it on a 360 which might rrod, so it’s going up on my wall soon.

Uni’s going well except for all the work they keep trying to make me do. Bastards. Works going well, just swapped shifts so i’m no longer working Saturday nights…after this Saturday. 3 years of no social life is enough. I’ve also just applied for one of them there proper jobs at the BBC. The job sounds really good i’m just a bit worried I might not get because I might not get the 2.1 it requires.

My gaming social life was great over xmas (while I was doing no work) and now has gone back to usual…non existent. I really wanna go to Newcastle again I just don’t have the time. After my final year project is handed in I’ll go to celebrate my birthday.

All in all, i’m happy right now, more than I have been in a very long time.

Ok, so that should be the other way round especially considering my circumstances. So after my work being robbed I started working 4 nights a week, this doesn’t leave much time for seeing my friends or anything really. On top of this i’ve met a new girl and things are going really well…really well for a change so between seeing her and working i’ve basically got no time for anything. I spend most of my days playing computer games and just chilling as i’m just sooo tired.

Going back to uni in about a month so hopefully (with me reducing my hours at work) i’ll “Hopefully” have more time to see my new girlfriend, my friends and actually do some work. I have a 3rd year project to do next year (amazingly it being my 3rd year and all) which is supposed to take me all year. I’ve been meaning to start it all summer (as well as re-writing my novel amongst other things) but haven’t gotten around to it. My project is supposed to be a website based on the periodic table something interesting, something which gets kids/students etc excited about the periodic table which might be a bit difficult. With doing chemistry at A Level and creating websites it seemed to be the perfect project for me (that plus all the other projects sounded really hard and stupid!)

I’m off to Newcastle this weekend for a wedding, that should be a good laugh.  I want to go to Alton towers and cadbury world before i go back to uni, that might be a bit tough.

Started a new project, more on that at a later date. Stay tuned.

It’s been a long time…

Well, not really. But lets move on. Right, the whole not drinking thing was a success. I did 20 days in the end so that i could end when my summer was set to begin, the end of exams. I found that I could handle it no problem, it was everyone around me who hated it. Why does me not drinking affect anyone but me?

Over the 20 days I went to the pub numerous times and didn’t drink, it was actually quite amusing, my own mother accused me of drinking after getting back from the pub, said I was acting funny. Yup, she’s not seen me sober in quite a while!! I also went out for a mates birthday, again not drinking and had people offering to buy me booze. It’s not like i was too poor to afford to drink, soft drinks are generally more expensive than alcohol is. My mate who’s birthday it was, was especially unhappy I wasn’t going to drink that nigh. I mean why is it such an issue, what if i really was an alcoholic and gave up alcohol altogether, however would my friends cope?

I’ve finished Uni now and was supposed to go on holiday last week. For one reason or another this fell through and i’ve been left with 2 weeks off work and nowhere to go. Luckily my friend Cat graciously offered me a place to stay for a few days, the only drawback was that she lives in Reading. Never been to Reading…don’t really wanna go again, although they do have some nice buses.

Oh my work was robbed which has caused one of the barmaids to leave (she was held hostage while they robbed the place) which means i’m covering her shifts, so i’m working 4 nights a week. Not too bad while i’m off uni but i’ll not have these shifts when I get back there so all is good. Money while I need it, time when I need that.

I got my 360 back so i’ve been playing an assortment of games. Tried playing Star Wars the force unleashed Jedi temple downloadable content *breathe*  which is a bit cack and short and really really hard on Sith Warrior difficulty. Then onto Fable 2 which, while i enjoyed it at first, not remembering any of the controls, what I was doing or anything, quickly bored me. The I turned to Fallout 3. What an unbelievable game!!! I don’t like RPG’s, i mean really don’t; the only RPG i’ve ever played and liked was KOTOR 1 & 2.

To begin with I didn’t really like Fallout but when i got into it and got enough weapons and ammo to arm a small bunch of mercenaries planning a coup d’état I really started to enjoy it. I love doing missions/quests, finding things and exploring and with enemies which don’t respawn I can take my time and enjoy the game. I picked up the first DLC Operation: Anchorage because it’s currently at a reduced price and I was going to play it when I had completed the main game. But, while exploring an area I came across the location which activates the content. Not realising what it entailed I headed into it and completed the first 2 quests of the content. They aren’t particularly difficult, just draining. Because the game is not an FPS the combat is a little bit taxing at times especially when it comes to multiple enemies and constant enemies one after the other after the other. Don’t get me wrong, the FPS aspect of the game is pretty darn good and probly one of the reasons I actually like this RPG instead of simply pushing 1 button constantly with the word “attack” isn’t my idea of a game.

So i’ve got a bit hooked and I want to finish this DLC so I can get on with the main exploration. I’ve only gotten about 12 hours into this game and with multiple ways of exploring (achievements for being good, bad and neutral) I might get lost in this game completely.

I’m heading down to Birmingham this weekend, should be a giggle, that is all.

Strange, i’ve been playing Fallout 3 for about 10 hours straight today and I came off, went on facebook and all of a sudden felt horrible. Terrible depression overcame me and my stomach started doing somersaults, which is strange as I can’t figure out why. Probly something subconscious that i’ll figure out when I sleep but I hope I feel better tomorrow. Drinking and Transformers. Get in!!

PS3 thoughts…

December 31st, 2008

PS3


Right, being an avid 360 supporter in the past I thought it only right to write my thoughts about the newly purchased PS3 sitting in my room. Now I know what you are thinking, he’s moved over to the darkside and well maybe I have, but still, hear me out. Having both my 360’s die on the same day kinda pushed me over the edge so I bought a PS3 and here is what I thought about it…

 

The first thing I noticed about it is that it is sooo quiet. The 360 is a monster when it comes to noise and the PS3 is completely different. Although it does makes some really weird noises at random points. I mean I go to bed watching DVD’s every single night so I can always hear the 360 when I wake up in the night and turn it off, but the PS3, I can barely hear when it’s on or off.

 

A lot of the media functions are pretty generic like the 360 however streaming videos work a lot better on the PS3 than on the 360. The only problem is it’s a little indecisive when it comes to which types of video it will play. AVI’s no problem but for some reason it will only play some WMV’s and not others which is strange.

 

And those are pretty much the only 2 good points…

 

Bad points:

 

XMB is shit compared to the guide on the 360. If you want to do anything, anything other than look at your friends or trophy’s you have to go back to the start up. You can’t play music in game which might not seem like a lot, but it just shows the limits.

 

It’s sooooo slow. If I hit fast forward, rewind, skip, pause and play on videos and music. I honestly could not believe how bad it was, it would stack up commands as well so thinking it hadn’t got the command to skip a track I’d hit skip again and again, skipping past an actual good track. It becomes more frustrating while watching DVD’s.

 

Internet browser. Like the PSP but a little more advanced. It’s good just a little pointless. Ok you can get updated instructions instead of printing them on paper so you are saving the planet a little but still. I’ve found it’s a better way for games companies to advertise and get you to sign up to things in return for free content…bastards.

 

SixAxis…yea, great invention.

 

I’ve not installed linux yet, so this can’t actually be a bad point but I just wanted the point out the irony that the 360 made by M$, a company that makes Operating Systems does not allow you to install it on a 360 but Sony’s PS3 is more like PC than a 360 is.

 

80 Gig model does not support any backwards compatibility for the PS2…granted I’ve not played a PS2 game in about a year but still. I’d like the option.

 

Home…what a waste that is. Filled with adolescent boys going up to people with girl avatars (whether they are girls or not is anyones guess) and just talking to them and only them. Nobody else talks to each other, just 5 guys around every girl.

 

My biggest gripe about the PS3 is the need to install absolutely everything. Put in a game and it needs installing, download a game and after its finished downloading you need to install that too. Went into home and it asked me if I wanted to go to home square…ok….please download home square…wtf?? I just downloaded Home and now I have to download every single place in it before I can go there? Why weren’t they downloaded to begin with? Load times are still there, so why the need for the install?? Blu Ray is that bad it can’t read everything from the disk so it needs to read it from the HDD as well, this was one of the main problems with Blu Ray Vs HD DVD, HD DVD had much better load times yet they went for Blu Ray in the end and this is the cost.

 

OK, OK, I might have been a bit overly harsh really I mean I’ve just got a cheap Blu Ray player so there is that. The friends list is ok, charge time for the controller again acceptable even if the cable is pretty short so it’s not all bad. It’s more reliable than the 360 so….

 

All in all it’s a games machine, it plays games while my 360 is being repaired and now I don’t need to worry about platform exclusives. I’d still have my 360 any day of the week but to play all the games available and for the wireless streaming, the PS3 is ok…I suppose.

Wow

July 13th, 2008

A month after my accident and I’m still pretty fucked. Didn’t even remember posting the entry below this one, that’s how bad I’ve become. Since my accident I have barely been able to remember anything at all. I don’t think I’ve really come to terms with everything as this has put my life really into perspective. I’ve already started to try and make amends for every bad thing I’ve done in my life. My name is Earl-esque.

So what’s new? I’ve finished my work experience now, might decide to crack on with my novel now, get that finished off for publishing. I got a letter through about Uni, I won the John Ryan prize for excellence for my first year at university. This is basically for getting the highest marks on my course. Here is a copy of my letter. I’m dead chuffed about it and it’s actually made me re-evaluate uni as I was still debating whether or not to go back due to the reasons I actually started. But I digress.

Not long til XL now, seems like it’s gonna be pretty tough this time but i’m still looking forward from the break of being Matt so I can be Zyber. Some people might think they are the same person but they’re not, Zyber is who I like, who I want to be all the time but can’t. God I sound like an emo.

Anyway, I think I’ve bored you for enough. Night!

Blogcast Episode 1

April 20th, 2008

Yup, I threatened to do it and I did. Yea I came up with the idea of having a free flowing sort of blog and the best way to do that was through a sort of podcast. So last night, i was quite bored and got around to playing with the idea. Recorded the first one of my little series which is just the raw, unedited version of my recording. I like it more like that, kinda like real life, just going with the flow.

There are a few things to point out which i’ll try for the next one:

  • Sort out my heavy breathing so i sound less like Darth Vader
  • Intro and outro music
  • Mini script on what i actually want to talk about as oppose to thinking it up on the spot
  • Maybe a guest :p

Ok, to be fair this is no masterpiece and i know some people are going to hate it, feedback is welcome of course but i don’t think there is much you can say about this one besides it’s shit. It’s more of a test at the end of the day. Anyways, you can listen to it here (right click and “save as” to download):

Steve cello taped

 

 

Right, guess it’s time to blog about my XL week, well that’s pretty much what it was. Headed down to ye old brummy on Wednesday which is a day before the set up because a mate of mine down there invited me to stay at his. Few beers etc. So headed down and my man Nero met me at the train station and we headed back to his gaff.

I actually met him for the first time at XL 3, he showed up to my hotel with a bottle of rum and 8 cans of Stella at 1.30am. The guy is a legend so I decided to repay his kindness with a bottle of Morgan Spice Rum for us to drink this time. Got to his place and met his wife and 2 sprogs (all really nice), his wifes best friend Jenny and another guy who I really cannot remember the name of…saying that I don’t remember most of the night. There were only 4 of us for most of the night and we got through 9 beers, a bottle of Vodka and the Morgan spice. No wonder I don’t remember the end of the night, I think I must have said some fucked up shit. Well Nero’s still talking to me so that’s a good sign. I didn’t go to bed til around 9am Thursday morning so when I rocked up to the NEC about 3pm I was still pretty shagged.

Met up with everyone and headed back to the hotel (twas lush) to check in and for a heavenly shower. Swear, I was sooo shagged that day, that cold shower was the best thing ever! Walked back over (yes you read that right, walked, we were that close to the NEC we could walk) and proceeded to set up. I say set up, I was really shagged and wasn’t much good. Jay kept asking me why I was soo down, I wasn’t down, just messed up. Jay turned to Chris and said “Jedey’s fucked!” Chris turns to me “You fucked mate?” and I go “Aye”. Chris came over and gave me a hug so I guess the weekend wasn’t a total loss :p

Spin, Becky, Razor and I had to make 468 lanyards and then 468 goodie bags, with loads of promotional shit into Race Driver: Grid bags. While doing this very repetitive task, something for which I was very grateful Jay suggested I do, me and Spin came up with a slogan for XL 4. XL4: don’t hate the player hate the game. Because, before even playing it, we were all sick of Race Driver: Grid, lol and the worst part is, I never got to play it. SADFACE.

We made it back to the hotel pretty late and got some kip. We woke up in time for breakfast which razor just wasn’t feeling that morning. We rocked up at the NEC to find the usual morning chaos. I met up with loads of my old friends and made some new ones. I’ll list my shout outs at the bottom. We ripped through both FFA’s for Halo 3 and COD 4 and got a good way through the GOW 4 Vs 4.

We phoned through to the Hotel during the day asking to keep the bar open as we’d be back sometime after 11. We closed around 10ish, had a quick bash on the games (I think) and headed back to the hotel for about 11.15. For the walking crew (me, Steve, Jay, Spin and razor) we walked into the hotel to find Chris and the new guy Dave arguing with the concierge. Apparently the message to keep the bar open wasn’t left and the bartender had gone home for the night. While we were faffing around dropping bags and shizzle (Stewart getting changed the cheeky cunt) to try and go somewhere to get a few beers. The concierge comes over and apologising for the inconvenience and offers to pay for taxis to and from a bar in town. FUCKING A!!!

We headed into town to the local wetherspoons, quite a nice place. We had 2 taxis, one bringing me, spin, Jay and Razor and one with Dave, Chris, Tempus and Steve. Our taxi driver did 115MPH down the motorway so we got there first and proceeded inside. We were told before getting there to take off our beanies/hats and to just straighten up a bit, lol. Me and Spin went in nee bother, Jay and razor fixed themselves up outside for a minute or two and headed in. ROFL, Razor got ID’d on the way in the door and he’s older than me! Spin generously offered to get the beers in and what a round it was. 8 beers and then he bought 8 shots of Tequila for us all as well, probably celebrating his first kid coming soon. Jay, the big girl of the group, refused the shot so spin had 2. We sat down and I proceeded to document the event and we found out that Mega pixels do not make a camera to Jay’s dismay. My camera PWN’s all. While Chris was at the bar with Dave, I gave Steve my phone and he was going through my photo’s and we came across one of the group ones and zoomed in on Chris. He looked just like Uncle Fester. Bluetooth, what an amazing invention. We sent it around to everyone’s phones and Jay and I have photoshop on our phones! Here is my attempt! After a few beers and a quick take away he headed back to the hotel via a mini bus and got to bed.

Up the next day bright and early and as usual, me and Spin are up and at breakfast first. Razor slept in to get his beauty sleep (that and not wanting breakfast) and we were soon followed by Chris and his Mrs. Apparently Boffy and Jay were already up and at the NEC, one of the alarm systems was going off and Jay rang me to find out where the zapper for it was. Of course Steve had taken it with him. Lets just say I don’t think I saw Steve til about 10am, lol. Nothing really event worthy on the Saturday, we got through the GOW finals and started on the COD 4 5 Vs 5 and the Halo 3 4 Vs 4….Except for Xg Minx showing me her ultrasound. Her and Xg Reaper are having a little baby! Ain’t that cute, an XL romance which turns into the first XL baby!

Now, I’d accidentally left my watch at my friends gaff in Brum so I left early on Saturday, headed back there and stayed at his. I met his cousin Kieran and we all just kicked back with a few beers etc and laughed at shit on youtube.

Easter Sunday I woke up and headed back to the NEC picking up a rolo egg on the way as it was Easter. Rocked up just after 10 or 11 I think and got back to work. I spent most of the day on the front desk as my IBS was crippling me as usual. I got chatting with Minx about Reaper. Apparently the burger van the NEC got was dishing out some nasty food and Luke (Reaper) had got food poisoning and was back at the hotel. Luke rocked up a bit later looking like shit. A bunch of us spent time at the front just chatting and having a laugh. Chris regaled us of a story which got him the nickname Uncle Fester Pants! Chris had got food poisoning as well, he rushed to the toilet and while sat on the toilet threw up in his pants! Becky and Simmer’s Mrs bought a couple of hotdogs from the Burger van, bit into them and found they were pink. Becky who had previously stolen these hotdogs took them back with Stomping freak as backup. Here’s a pick of Stomping freak giving Chris one. The burger vender was a bit too laid back about this for Stomping to deal with so he had a massive go and threatened to get food standards on them. Needless to say, 15 minutes later they had packed up and left!! XL 1 – 0 Burger van

Anyways, the day seemed to pass pretty quickly and there were some good matches being played with some of the top teams being penalised for breaking the rules. No one is above the law but quite a few people are above Jay :p About 10ish we kicked all the bad kids off the free play so the staff party could begin! Chris had bought a tonne of booze and ordered pizza’s for all the staff, the STO lot showed up with even more booze as well. I was PWNing Stace (Minx) at gears of war like I told her I would and then I moved onto a bit of COD 4. Then the pizza’s arrived and most of the staff went off to eat a bit and come back. I was playing and Luke popped up behind me and I realised there was a random bad kid sat next to me. I politely asked him to get off the consoles and then bitch slapped his puny white ass when he talked back to me. Note: I didn’t actually hit the kid just verbally PWN’d his ass and Luke was laughing his ass off about it.

A load of beers and some antics later, we left the NEC about 4.30am. Walked the UbiSoft chick Kas back to her hotel (as it was through a darkened wood and to see if her bar was open) and then Dave, Steve, Stewart, Jay and I went back to our hotel. Me, Dave and Steve took the easy route and Stewart and Jay decided to actually go through a forest to get there. LOL. Steve then came up with the devilishly good idea of going to wake up Razor and Spin (who I was sharing room with) and that’s exactly what we did. Jay went in and jumped on top of Spin and he has proof that they were sleeping together…I have the proof that he has proof. They left and I got some sleep. We all woke up around 10ish and headed to the NEC to pack up. The usual pissing about began and when Steve called Chris Uncle Fester…well you can see the picture at the top^^ Yup, he cello taped his face up. I got the train back with Steve and a guy called Edutech (but only for a little bit) and Steve was bouncing off the walls. I’d never known him to be this impatient.

I got home eventually, completely shot but it was worth it. Wednesday through to Monday with little to no sleep, partying and gaming, it was one of the best times of my life and something I really needed. I’ve come back and I’m actually happy for a change, I’m back to my old self. Anyways, the key moments.

Spending money

February 13th, 2008

I’ve been at it again, spending lots of money on things i don’t really need. I went shopping in the arndale with my mate Alera the other day and bought loads of frivolous things. A continuation of my 360 gadgets post, I picked up the Chat pad and a black battery pack.

Now, I never thought i’d actually buy a chat pad as, if i really wanted to send a message, a voice message is pretty easy. But I got to thinking, reading a text message is quicker than waiting for the audio to load and then you can’t hear the people in you’re lobby as well. So I took the plunge, picked up the chat pad (which comes with a updated version of the 360 wired headset) and it’s quite good actually. Increases the speed that I’m writing messages 10 fold and with the back light, i can use it in the dark as well. The reason I bought the black battery pack is a bit more vein. I have 1 white controller, 1 360 elite (black controller) and a halo 3 controller. The last 2 are black but only come with disposable battery packs so if I want to game in style, I have to waste 2 AA batteries. So yes, vein.

Went into zavvi.co.uk (old virgin Megastores) and picked up 6 DVD’s:

So yea, I spent a bit of money the other day. Still looking at the iPod touch though. Don’t need a music player but looking at web browsing (via wifi), checking emails and general organising shit (my memory is shot lately…tis all the booze) so I was looking at the 8GB version. I know there are probably cheaper, better things for those things but meh, i’m only young once. Also need a HDTV but that’s another story.

Mini reviews

January 2nd, 2008

Portal

Right, some of you may or may not know that I used to be the editor of a gaming magazine called Ignition. I used to write reviews and previews all the time. Since me and the designer no longer have the free time to spend on the magazine, we closed it down. But I’ve been wanting to get back into it really, I do love writing and I rarely have the opportunity to do anything creative any more. So, with all the games I’ve been collecting recently, I thought I’d write a collection of mini reviews of them…that plus I’m bored.

Assassins Creed - Now, to be fair, I’m not that far into this game…mainly because I got so bored I turned it off and put something else in my 360. No, it’s not a bad game, there are just a few things that let it down like the control system and some of the gameplay aspects like running and guards recognizing that you’re an assassin (because they’ve all been emailed a picture of you). I like the story, I like the concept. I will probably go back to this when I have the time but I really can’t be bothered right now.

Blue dragon - I don’t like RPG’s. It’s that simple. I didn’t purchase this game it was given to me for free when I upgraded my 360 to an elite. I did like Blue Dragon, I thought the cinematics were great, story line great, the only downside for me, about this game, was that it was an RPG. And as I’ve already covered, its an RPG. It’s the one button bashing which annoys me, its the fact that you have the exact same battle over and over again. I’ll probly come back to this when I have a lobotomy.

Call of Duty 4: modern warfare - I played the multiplayer beta and love it…but then I heard that the achievements for the game were going to 100% single player achievements. Being an achievement whore this was really sucky for me. I’m not the biggest fan of single player games due to my experience on live and networking with people. So I didn’t pick this up until recently but fuck me! The single player is amazing!!! And instead of achievements in the multiplayer, you have goals that you work towards which unlock weapons and attachments for guns. The game is fantastic but the only downside is the lobby system in the multiplayer. If one person backs out of a game, you all have to hit “b” to back out with them. Bit annoying but meh, I can live with it.

Guitar Hero III - Awesome! Track selection is ok but could be better. I love the game, I get guitar hero cramp in my left hand and right wrist. I highly recommend this game to people, you’ll love it.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider Anniversary + DLC for Legend - Ok, so I splashed out for the downloadable content for Tomb Raider Legend which gives you the full Anniversary game. I started playing it and then found out that the achievements were being added onto Tomb Raider Legend and NOT a new game Anniversary. So I just forked out money for a game and then another complete game on top of that but I only get 1250 points out of it? Fuck that, I’m buying the full game…which I did. They are the exact same game, i’m doing this because I love achievements and tomb raider. Although, since Legend they seem to have messed the camera angles up a bit and the movement. Still a class game like, but it could have been better. Still only played croft manor on both of them (easy achievement) but I might post and updated review when i’ve finished it.

Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga - Picked this up on the cheap and it’s a canny game. Revised some of the really bad parts from the first 2 games and of course, its a Lego Star wars game so it is obviously going to be good. Loads to do on it and with online co-op, it makes it really fun to play.

Mass Effect - Again, another RPG but I get to shoot guns so I don’t mind as much. Also, its got a huge engaging storyline and it looks like another KOTOR. I’ve only played about an hour of the game so far but what I’ve played is quite good. I just hope that it continues with the same level.

The Orange Box - Game of the year! Hand’s down, Game of the year! Not only do you get 5 games in 1, but you get probably the best games ever made. PORTAL!!!!! Half life 2, episode 1, episode 2 and team fortress also come with portal but my god!!! I have nothing bad to say about portal other than I want more. I can’t wait for the sequal….it has to be on the cards. The other games are alright but Portal is un-friggin-believable.

That’s all folks. I may post some updates to some of the reviews when I play the games a bit more but other than that I’m done. I’m…well I’m not going to bed but I’m going to stop writing now.

Quote of the day - Pringles are laced with liquid crack in powered form!
