One of the Craziest Games I’ve Ever Played

Image From xbox.gamespy.com

It was this game where you played as the infamous shark known as jaws, and it was called Jaws Unleashed. It was a fairly simple game and I do believe almost all of the fun came from how cool you felt by being a shark. You know, you could just swim around eating people that so foolishly swam into the deeper waters of Amity Islands. Oh but people on the shallow ends certainly were not safe, and not even the people on shore! One of my favorite things to do was swim as fast as I could toward the beach jump out of the water onto land and chow down on the unsuspecting land dwellers.

Throughout the campaign the game does a very good job at making you feel like a badass. Whether it be destroying entire science labs, fleets of ships, or tailing speed boats. But the most memorable badass moments were when you fight Shamoo in Seaworld, and when you fight a Giant Squid in the deep dark depths of the ocean.Which I do believe was the game’s finale.  I know the videos look pretty bad but keep in mind that it was a semi half assed game released in 2006. One thing I enjoyed about this game was that it didn’t take itself too seriously, but at the same time it wasn’t too ridiculous.

I’m not exactly sure what happened to that game, but I lost track of it a couple years ago. All in all it was an entertaining game with a fairly long story mode, and after talking about it and remembering how fun it was, if I saw that game at a game store I very well might re-buy it, so I may play it again

The Best of the Best

When I made a post about my favorite Youtube series I thought it would maybe be a good post idea to pick some of my favorite episodes. So that’s what this post is, but that turned out to be much harder than I thought. It was so hard to pick because I loved each episode so much, in the end, I suppose I mostly picked the episodes that stood out most in my memory.

I couldn’t possibly put them in any certain order, so here are my top 5 favorite episodes of Two Best Friends Play

 

Two Best Friends Play: Deadly Premonition

 

Two Best Friends Play: Xbox Live Indie Games

 

Two Best Friends Play: Man Vs. Wild

Two Best Friends Play: Dead Rising 2 Off the Record

 

Two Best Friends Play: Prison Break

 

Honestly it would probably have been easier to make a list of the Two Best Friends episodes that aren’t the best. But I had much more fun reminiscing in the amazing times instead of instead of really good times. So in case you haven’t noticed by now I’m a pretty hard core fan of Matt and Pat.

A Dream Come True

Image From www.coolchaser.com

although you can’t really tell from my blog posts, music is a pretty big part of my life. There are few things I enjoy more than coming home after a long day of school, plugging in my Ipod, then blasting Escape the Fate, Rise Against, or A Day to Remember to melt away the problems of the day. So what could be a better addition to my dull life than a concert featuring two of my all time favorite bands? I have to wonder why a band like A Day to Remember is opening for Rise Against. A Day to Remember is easily big enough to do their own tour, but hey, I’m not one to question a good thing.

Sam and I have been to a Rise Against concert once before, and it was absolutely epic to say the least. We were very close to the front of the crowd, and I knew every song they sung by heart. My throat was sore and my ears were ringing for the next couple of days. We are not getting to this concert as early as we did the last, so we probably wont be as close as we were last time, but if we and very persistent I am sure we can get to a good spot. As I’m writing this it’s hard to picture that tonight I’m going to be screaming my lungs out at an incredibly amazing concert, but it is indeed the case. Well until I actually go to the concert I don’t really have much else to write about, so until then.

Snipers In the Grass

I used to be kind of into air-soft guns, and I would have fun battles with some of my friends. Our typical battleground was this open lush field type thing. I’m not exactly sure what it is, it’s found in the middle of a neighborhood but its a fairly large secluded oasis of lush vegetation. It’s not a park per say, but I digress.

Given our leafy green battlefield, I found it appropriate to purchase a guile suit. It served its intended purpose a few times, but you would be surprised how useful it is to have a guile suit lying around. Combined with my pizza bag, I used it as a last-minute Halloween costume. And then one time, I had a good amount of friends over at my house, I pulled out the guile suit to show them. Next thing you knew we were all causally talking in my room, while one of my friends was sporting a guile suit. I’ve also used it for school plays.

So yeah having a guile suit has been a fun experience, and has proven to be a surprisingly useful piece of attire.

Have you ever gotten something that has proven to be much more versatile than first expected? let me know in a comment!

The Endeavor to Obtain My First Car

Today my car arrived from Denver Colorado on one of those giant car transporting trucks. Why did it come from all that way when I live in California you ask? The short answer is, because my parents are bad at thinking things through.

It is a very nice car and I am very excited to start diving it. It is a ford escape. I actually feel very strange getting a new car for my first car, but hey, I’m not complaining.

So anyway as I said the car arrived from Denver, and I will try to tell this tale as quickly as possible. My older sister lives in upstate New York, and for Christmas my parents bought her a car, and sent it all the way there on one of those giant trucks. The car was under my dad’s name, and unfortunately she wasn’t making the payments on the car. Thus my dad’s credit score began to drop.

To solve this problem my family and I, flew to New York, fully payed for a new car for my sister, and then started driving back to California in my sister’s old car, which would now be mine. My family couldn’t exactly handle driving across the country, so I flew out from St. Louis (as not to miss school), and my parents flew out of Denver (as they were fed up with driving). So we put the car on another moving truck from Denver to California. And that is the story of the many adventures my first car endured.

What do you think of my first car or the story that accompanies it? Let me know in a comment!

Hunger Games Review, Immediately After Midnight Premier

It is currently 2:44 am. I just got home after watching the midnight showing of the hunger games. I simply loved seeing my hands down favorite book of all time take life and shape on screen. Where do I begin? First of all I believe the characters to have been portrayed flawlessly. Each character acted exactly how I had pictured from reading the book. Although the movie moved very quickly (as all movie adaptions of books do), the movie took its time when it needed to. Inevitably with the loss of much of the main characters narration, a lot of the ideas found throughout the book were lost, but every emotion that came with these ideas were there, clear and strong. I honestly don’t know what else to say, I eagerly await the next two movies which will undoubtedly come out. Hopefully they will split the last book into two parts, to give it a more in depth ending. If you have not seen the movie, it is a must see. Unless you haven’t read the book, in which case you should read the book immediately and then go watch the movie.

I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed a movie so much in my life. And that fact has made me come to a realization. This is the way all those Harry Potter, Lord of the rings, and Star Wars fans feel! I have never really been pulled into a series like this before, so this is my Star Wars. This is my Harry Potter. This is my Lord of the Rings. This is my Hunger Games!
