One More Week

   November 8 can't come soon enough.  I am really looking forward to this game.  This multiplayer trailer really makes it exciting and gets you amped up for the game.

Little Big Planet 2 Platinum Trophy

    After a few month trying to get 25 online wins on community versus levels I finally achieved the goal.  This trophy looking back posed more trouble than acing the story mode levels due to random players never wanting to stick around to play more than a few levels at a time.  If LBP had a matchmaking system more in line to popular shooters finding other players would be much easier.  Currently it is hit or miss finding random players, though this game is more suited to playing with people you know from your friend's list.
    My third platinum trophy has been reached and it couldn't be a more fun game.  I wonder what my fourth will be?  I don't know yet but I think it might be while.

Conan Show Typos 3 and 4 (2 in one week)

    I spotted two DirecTV/TBS typos in the onscreen guide this week for Conan.  The first on Monday they misspelled guest Kaley Cuoco as "Kaley Cuocol."

The next one just two days later is simply a misspelling of performs as "perfroms."  I always find it mildly humorous when I see typos like these on the onscreen guide.  Click on one of the labels below this post to find other related posts on this.

Battlefield 3 (beta) Follow-Up Review

   As I was first playing this demo I liked it because it was different and fun, however the more I played it the more I found I didn't really like the game as much.  The game has a slower pace but it feels like it wants to be faster than it is when it shouldn't be.  Unlike MAG where reviving teammates is almost a core aspect of the game, Battlefield 3 doesn't really emphasize this as much as it could or should.  The biggest disappointment with this game (and game series) is the small squad size, only four, this means I can only connect and talk to four friends or teammates.  Sure I can be in the game or team as all my friends but this limits the fun.  By comparison MAG has a squad size of eight and Call of Duty has a team size of at least six and in the lobby one can hear and talk to everyone else. 
    I have made a decision on what game to buy on release day and that is Modern Warfare 3.  The more I watch youtube videos of MW3 the more fun it looks.  I just hope it is as much fun to me as Black Ops has been, Black Ops has been and still is my favorite Call of Duty yet.  I have preordered the hardened edition (which include one year elite membership as well as some other add-ins) on Amazon which has no sales tax and $0.99 release-day delivery so I should have release day without leaving home.  Besides, I tried Best Buy and Gamestop and they were both sold out or hardened edition preorders, but this Amazon option turns out to be better after all.
