OhmyGod an update! Yes people I am as a matter of fact very much still alive! Who would've thunk it? Thunk. I don't like that word. Thought sounds better. Ahwell.
Life is good now even though several months back it was an extremely bumpy road. Things seem to be set right and I learned keeping things in isn't necessarily a good thing.
But! This isn't a life post nor do I intend to continue posting about serious life issues. That's what my BFFs I see everyday are for. There's nothing at this point I wouldn't just tell them straight up to their face. I've come to feel stuff like these online journals and blogs are more harmful than helpful. And I was always one to believe if you really need to vent to something privately why would anyone think online was a good idea? What happened to paper? You can always burn it after-wards or shred it. Online most of the people that have these things don't even bother setting it to private and if they do the highest they go is friends only where a particular group of people can still see it. And if you do go the extra mile of having it just for your eyes only, the people that manage the site still have your life's history in their hands. Paranoid? Maybe but think about it.
Considering of deleting my journal again. Start a clean slate. Have a new name that I also feel reflects me positively whether people understand the name or not.
Main reason for this post: ranting about my passion VIDEO GAMES. Yeah. What? I don't judge you.
Bummed with EA and DICE at the moment they seem to be doing questionable decisions with their titles for the XBOX 360, whether its Microsofts fault or them has yet to be verified. Because they haven't bothered to give a reason I'm going to blame EA and DICE. L2SpeakUpGuysSeriously.
Medal of Honor Beta: My my this whole Beta thing has been a mess. Extremely disorganized. People getting codes early while others are not, dates for the Beta not being specified clearly, "It's originally for the 21st! No wait we're doing it early! It's the 17th! Wait! No there's a problem it's pushed back to the 21st for this one group! Wait there's another problem! One group! You get pushed back further! You need VIP status, but you don't! You can redeem your codes, but the site is wonky!" Really guys? Why don't you, gee I don't know, not rush the Beta and set the date for everyone? A lot of people feel favoritism between the consoles on this matter. I don't but I am tired of seeing dates moved around, I'm tired of waiting longer to play and I'm embarrassed for you on how glitchy the procedure is.
Battlefield Bad Company 2 Co-OP Onslaught DLC: This new mode was announced awhile back and soon set reassuringly for a June 22nd release. It's June 22nd. It wasn't up this morning. Its okay, its cool. Even though I most of the time see DLC up in the morning, maybe it needed more time in the day before it was put up. It happens. Maybe it'll be up later, right? Nope. Gosh golly gee! Late in the day they put up somewhere on the main site everyone but 360 gets the DLC today and XBOX that was supposed to get it with the rest of the group only gets it "Sometime in the near future" WTF is this suddenly supposed to mean? Usually they right off the bat straight up tell you it's not getting released with the others because of a technical issue on the specific console. Good job guys on your communication skills with your consumers. Not only did you wait til the last minute to let everyone know they're not getting what they rushed home for, you're not even telling them WHY. And you wonder why people scream exclusivity.
At least I have Rockstar with their amazingly well made Red Dead Redemption game. They released DLC too today... for FREE. Oh and it has ACHIEVEMENTS... for, wait for it, FREE. It does make me arc my eyebrow on how they can do that considering Microsoft's stingy policy. Hell I'm impressed though. DLC released exactly on the date it was set for with ACHIEVEMENTS and its FREE. I feel a little respected I guess. I clap my hands for them for sticking by their word and working around Microsoft without having to use a system like Ubisoft's U-Play or EA's VIP/Cerberus network. Even if the DLC is small I appreciate the effort.
