(This is a discussion of the ending and aftermath of Red Dead Redemption. If you haven't finished the game and intend to do so, then you may want to stop and read this later. I really do want to know what you think when you're done, though)
Now that I've been blogging and interacting on GI Online for a while, I've noticed a few things that could stand for improvement on the site.
Many gamers put untold hours into their gaming addiction, sometimes spending whole days trying to beat a game or finish a level or complete a story. Is it too much time? It's hard to say.
Not much of a video game post today, though I'll tie it in at the end.
After reading Saint's ode to the wonder that is the Worms franchise (or at least the first couple of games), i was intrigued, but wasn't really interested in tracking the game(s) down. There's just so much other stuff to play!
So I'm level 5 now. For some reason, despite the "Points System" post stating that Subscribers have their blog posts show up on the main Blog page from the very beginning, that hasn't been happening. I'm assuming they've changed that but haven't updated the post. How about it, Game informer?
I'm in the middle of Red Dead Redemption and I have Mass Effect 2 in the works, but I also need something to just blow off steam. Something short and punchy for those nights where I just don't have the energy for anything involved, or when I only have a 20 minutes or so to play.
One of the things I love about Red Dead Redemption, as well as the Grand Theft series, is the little touches that Rockstar puts into the game. Little bits of atmosphere that indicate that anything can happen in this world. Sometimes it's just something in the background, cool enough that you just stop playing and let it all wash over you. Other times, something happens during an action sequence that just makes you laugh.
Everybody's got their pet peeves (God, I hate that phrase). These things that just kind of tick us off, but don't truly make us irate.
Everybody seems to have a post about their gaming history, what started them gaming, and all of that good stuff. So I figured why not me too? Since people are finally starting to come and read some of my posts (though more are always welcome!), I should probably introduce myself.
Are you a game replayer? Do you find yourself going through a game more than once, whether it's because the game was so fun or because you want to get an achievement?
No, this is not a comment on today's lapdog media. Instead, it's a question I put to you. And while the subject matter is video game related, it is kind of a universal question.I've been a big fan of the Official Xbox M
