vacationing


| Comments (1) | Views (0)

Now that summer quarter is over and fall quarter is not for another 2 weeks away, I have been enjoying the time off relaxing, helping my parents with projects around the house, and of course playing games.

I finally broke down and bought Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto III just to see for myself if it's truly the scourge of video games that I used to think it was. It's actually comical that I once thought that. The game is funny, a tad violent and it certainly does live up to its "M" ESRB rating. When driving around the streets of Liberty City I often found it difficult to control the car I was driving and stay on the street without hitting a pedestrian on the sidewalk once in a while. I thought it was funny... "oops". The game is a cartoon and shouldn't be taken too seriously. Next time I'm feeling appalled about a game, I'm going to make sure I play it first before judging it.

The other games I've been playing while waiting for Nintendo's F-Zero GX to show up are: Super Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime, and Eternal Darkness:

I was slightly disappointed with Super Mario Sunshine when it first came out, as it relies heavily on the use of repetitive tasks and "secret" mini-games. My second time through is a bit more fun due to my lowered expectations.

Metroid Prime remains one of my all-time favorite games for any system, period. It is remarkable, gorgeous, challenging, and brilliant. I think I'm on my 5th time through the game and I still enjoy it. I never could finish it on hard mode however.

And Eternal Darkness has been doing a great job of scaring the piss out of me. An erie game with a dark theme and bizarre situations. Sometimes though late at night when the house is quiet, I put the game away from fright.

F-Zero GX should be here by Thursday, though I have plenty of games in my library to tap into to help me pass the time. It's turning out to be a very nice break from school.

F-Zero GX has arrived today, in Pittsburgh-Monroeville, PA area. I got the hands-on it, and the game is more hyper gameplay, much more than fast, believe me. The game is pretty very hard, and I have be patient and sacrifice myself to win the game.
