After I posted my Retro Diary last week, me and Steven had a game of Left 4 Dead for the PC, we completed the 2nd chapter.
After that we were going to have a game of Goldeneye Source, but neither of us could get a server running or join any public ones, so we couldn’t…

Trials 2 arrived today! The case seemed tatty, and the autorun was in a foreign language, but the game itself was in English, and it was lots of fun!

I’ve just been playing Sims 3 and Blood Stone 007 today. However, I’ve discovered This thing called
Raptr, which is one of those databases for games for a signature/widget, but this one automatically updates your status, and the games you’ve been playing by connecting to your Steam, Games for Windows Live and/or X-fire accounts, I connected all 3, so whenever I play a game, this widget (Located on the right of the page), will automatically update, it even saves my signatures. It also supports Xbox 360 and PS3 games, and you can also add old games, but you’d have to manually track how long you play them, which makes sense, there’s no other way of telling it.

I got Hard Boiled on DVD today, and what a film! I can definitely see why so many people love it! Although considering it was made in 1992, a year after Terminator 2, it seems behind it’s time in terms of video and audio quality, that doesn’t affect the awesome gun scenes and exiting plot of the film!
I saw Ice Age 4 in the cinema, it sucked, but while we were waiting for the picture to start, which was just under an hour, we went to an bowling alley/arcade, which happened to be near the cinema, I played Razer Storm, a shooter and Dead Heat, a racing game, they were both pretty fun.
I completed Blood Stone today, the game was kind of short, and I thought the ending was disappointing, I won’t be spoiling anything.

I started playing Stranglehold, it seems for a while, my goal currently is to beat Mirrors Edge, Blood Stone and Stranglehold, and I’ve completed the former 2, so I’m at the last stage of this “Goal” of mine.

I was playing a bit of Street Fighter X Tekken just there, I was playing in normal mode, much harder than the easiest difficulty I usually do, and flipping heck was it intense! Especially at the last battle! I was frustrated at a game for the first time in ages, but when I finally finished I, it felt so satisfying! I also unlocked a good few achievements on he way, so something came out of it…

It was N64 week this week, I was bringing the N64, and Steven brought along extra games and controllers.
I’ve forgotten the order we played the games, so bear with me.
We (Me, Giancarlo and Steven) first had a game of Goldeneye, usually we do Licensed to Kill Slappers Only, but this time, we did a normal gun match, makes a nice change, and it was fun as always, even if Steven dominated the match.
Then me and Steven played 1080 Snowboarding.
Then the three of us played 007 The World is Not Enough, like Goldeneye, we just did a normal gun much, or rather a few.
Then we played Super Smash Bros, I was, as always, last place, except surprisingly the last match.
Finally, me and Steven had a quick game of Perfect Dark, and we didn’t even finish it, because we had to leave.
When I got back home, my download for the Borderlands free weekend was done, and surprisingly, my PC struggled to run it, well, it struggled doing 60 fps, it can run on all high settings at 30+ no problem, but why do 30, when you can do 60? I played around a bit to get the game as awesome looking as possible, whilst running fast, I took out all post rendering effects and dynamic shadows and Bam! 60+ fps!
I have to say, I love the cel-shaded graphics, I’m an absolute sucker for those kind of graphics! I also loved the game’s RPG elements, and interesting characters. I’m definitely getting this game!
Then I played more Sims 3 and that was it.
Next week is Dreamcast week! One of my favourites!
