F.E.A.R. Finished

Yeah I was pretty right about this game. Way overhyped and doesnt deliver. Its 50% fun and 50% boring. Lots of walking around not really doing anything. Then you fight for a bit, then walk around some more. The plot was pretty boring and the AI wasnt that special. The graphics are alright, though the Doom 3 engine is clearly superior and runs better on older hardware. The audio was pretty good at least. Oh yeah, the game is not scary at all.

If I could go back in time would I buy it again? Thats a tough one. There is a good chance I would pick up Call of Duty 2 instead of this one.


Quake 4 Finished

The first game finished on my new pc. What can I say about this one? Amazing comes to mind. This is the best action game I have played this year. Everything about it kicks ass. The graphics are amazing (the best I have seen so far). The level design is great and character models are extremely detailed. Character’s sound great and the music fits perfectly. The weapons are fun and look detailed in hand. Animations look fluid and the vehicles control great. If you have a pc capable of running this game I suggest you buy it.


There is no hell.

I just got back from seeing the Doom movie and all I have to say is “What the hell?”. Or better yet, whats with the lack of hell? They took a perfectly functional storyline monsters and turned them into resident evil type monsters. The acting was horrible, plot barely understandable and action barely passable. My suggestion, dont go see this movie. Instead buy the game (or the expansion) with the money you would have spent at the movie theater (because popcorn alone is like $8).

Why cant things just work?

My new pc was definitely the most difficult build ever. So many things went wrong. But all that matters now is that its up and running. Im actually typing this entry on it right now. Time to install software and benchmark. Thats what most people do when they get a new pc right? Benchmark?
