Hey guys and gals (if any), I'm looking online for a cheap Gibson Guitar and I came across the site, IOffer. I really like all the variety of the guitars they have they are all so nice and look legit. I was wondering if anybody has any insight or thoughts in how I should go about buying a new Gibson. I really want some help. Is IOffer a legitamate site or am I wasting my time? Are there other sites that have good reviews and good pricing? HELP!
Hey everybody just happy to say that it has been one week since I have opened my blog and I'm glad to say that it has resulted in a great audience! I never knew that this could become so popular and in a short time!! I'd just like to thank all of you for the support in the past week and hope to see more of all of you follow my blog!
I can honestly say that I spend over a good 75 hours of my life playing this game.
Andross was young dickhead trying to destroy the galaxy when General Pepper of the Cornerin army kicked his sorry butt to Venom 4th planet of the Lylat System. Before he left he killed James McCloud when that stupid son bietch Pigma betrayed him. Peppy was in the mix and 'barely escaped' to tell Fox what had happened to his father. Then years later, Andross is screwing the galaxy again and Fox and his new Star Fox Team are sent to deal with him.
This prologue is the start of a Red Dead Redemption type of kick ass space odyssey. The story leading up to the game is a great example of why video games mean so much to us, they have a back story that you love and respect.
Some of you may remember the old Super Nintendo Star Fox. You probably remember its 3D'ish graphics. You also probably remember them looking sort of you know, "old school" . Star Fox 64 improves on graphics A LOT! Star Fox 64 was one of the earlier games on the N64 and it looks a lot better than a lot of N64 games, in my opinion.
The graphics do sport a, minor flaw in my opinion. When the characters talk, their mouths move at insane speeds. It's just funny to see and is quite annoying. Other then that, for the time that the game was made it is pretty awesome!
The music is really unforgettable. I can honestly say that I could probably play back every soundtrack music in every level in my head. I personally at a young age loved the sounds of Star Fox.
Truly there isn't a lot of SFX.. You can hear the many different pickup items you can get in the game, the certain scrolling in the main menus and such but really there is nothing to excessive and extreme. You'll mostly hear your lasers firing and ships blowing up as they hit the ground. I love the voice overs because some of the monkey fellows just sound ridiculous, again with there spastic mouth movements.
In Star Fox 64 you take pilot of your ship. It's equipped with lasers that can be upgraded with power-ups in the level as well as charged for a blast that can home in on the target. The ship is also equipped with bombs and a shield. Bombs can be collected throughout levels (you start with three) and can be launched to create a massive explosion. Your shields start low but you can repair damage via silver and golden rings. You can also increase your shields by collecting three golden rings and it will double the size of your shield meter (your shields reset at the beginning of each level and can only be doubled once). Checkpoints also lay around the worlds and both heal you and save you from having to do the whole first portion of the level in case you die.
Gameplay consists of regular Star Fox type levels. Some levels you are flying through space, dodging asteroids, some levels you are flying through an abandoned city, and some you are driving in a tank that is a blast to control. One thing stays true to all the levels, shoot what's in front of you. Most levels consist of flying straight forwards and shooting but some levels break off into a ''free range mode.'' You can basically fly anywhere. However, these sequences are short and few in numbers.
So what's bad about Star Fox 64? Immediately you'll notice your comrades. Your team of star fighters has got to consist of the most annoying people in the whole Star Fox universe. Not only are they almost completely useless but they can annoy the daylight out of you. There always screaming, ''Fox, get him off my tail!'' or ''Fox, what's taking so long!''. I am supposed to save your hide, complete the mission, and protect my hide as well when you are doing nothing at all?! And then you decide to take the occasional shot at your own teammates, either by accident because they were stupid enough to fly right out in front of you or just because you're pissed off at them and then they reply, ''Hey, what's the big idea!'' Stupid.
There are a few other minor downsides to the game. Sometimes it's hard to target an enemy, sometimes you can't even target or even shoot and enemy until it's a certain distance to you. Besides all that, Star Fox is one hell of a fun game to sit down an play in your spare time.
This control is superb. It does everything you would want your ship to do and does it all with great reaction. You can barrel roll, turn sharp, do a loop-dee-loop, and even do a complete u-turn in the opposite direction. Let's also not forget that this game was the very first game to sport the Rumble Pack capability. It was even sold with it, which was a great idea!
This game is made around replay. It's very old-school. You can't save your progress but I don't see why you would. It probably take about an hour to and hour and a half at max to beat this game, but that's not where the replay lies. When you first play through the game you probably wonder what all those other worlds/areas on the map are. Well this is where Star Fox 64 is unique. Depending on what you do in some levels depends on what level you go to next. There are several different paths you can take in this game and it's a decent challenge to try and go through each path and beat every level. Not to mention this game is just a great no-brainer game in the first place.
This game is a great old-school classic that should be in anyone's N64 line up. It was fun to play back then and still is fun to play now and again. Today's games lack a lot of serious fun but this game simply reflects how fun games used to be. It also probably set the path for games like Rogue Squandron to build off of. This is where it started, right here with STAR FOX!
Hey just checked the web, Dragon Age II Demo is out!!
The game demo is set to be released on February 22, 2011!!
Dragon Age II is said to way out do its predecessor with faster combat, enhanced graphics and a gripping storyline. This Demo is going to show you why IGN, Game Informer and all those guys have rated this one of the most anticipated games of 2011!
The Demo takes you into the prologue where you can pick from 3 different character classes and you'll be able to learn more about Hawke's abilities. People who play the Demo all the way through will get Hayder's Razor which is a sick dwarven blade that you can carry over to Dragon Age II.
The demo is just a small testament to its entire powerful experience.
I was just rustling through my piles of games and came upon Bioshock 1. I actually started to get all choked up because I had put a lot of time and emotion into this game. I can remember the trickle of water, the vast and open terrain that was Rapture. Apart from the rapid game play, cinematic dynamics and epic storyline, this game was one of the best I ever played.
Set in the underwater city of Rapture the character you are in (Jack) has to overcome this ruined and forgotten city to escape its creepy and horrific (at times) nature. Full of customization and cool little mini games, Bioshock delivered a gratifying experience that left you wanting more, every time you picked up that controller. If you haven't played Bioshock, its never late to do so. Made for Xbox 360, Ps3, Windows and MacI seriously and safely say that you NEED to play this game. It is filled with tonnes of things to do, dramatic storyline, etc.
For more info on the game and Bioshock 2 and the very anticipated Bioshock Infinite check out the link, with all the other info you might need:
So I'm searching the web, looking for some music and I come across VEVO which is one of the best places for any kind of new and exciting music videos, come across the Shawn Desman video Electric /Night Like This. So between 3:38 -4:16 I cannot keep my eyes off the girl directly left beside Shawn. Like she is super hot, can't look away. So it got me wondering, they probably put that girl there, because guys like me watching the video randomly would be draw in by this smoking hot babe and made watching the video all the way through. Now I'm thinking, why did they put her there again? I have come to the conclusion that the girl is put there because she has "appeal". It just really got me thinking.
SO I was looking on the side bar and saw a link for a Kesha video. Kesha doesn't even deserve to be named. I could rant and totally criticize her but I don't want to waste my breath. Just one dumb girl, screwing with the minds of adolescences. HATE is a strong word, but I hate her. Like most stupid musical artists out there right now.
I can honestly say, I watched like one second of this movie trailer and I was officially hooked. This game is the ultimate in customization. You have shooting COD style, combined with Elder Scrolls and Mass Effect Armour calibrations, its like one big awesome thing. I can't put it into words how much this game flicked my switch.
MAY 17th, that is not a long ways away, its going to be a heck of a stellar game.
The place that this game all happens is on a giant floating city called "The Ark". It is set in the near future filled with scientists making the vision of reality. Then global warming happens and yada, yada, yada and so on. The refugees struggle to survive on the dwindling resources and have to create factions to survive. Its a post-apocalyptic dream world.
Interestingly enough this game has a new type of system to get around, using the basis of SMART (Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain). The system evaluates where you are trying to go and makes its happen by vaulting over objects or sliding down a pipe or something like that. It is basically Parkour but in a giant video game world.
Though the game is not in space, sadly, it is one of the best games I have seen so far. It is coming out on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
