Rainbow Six Vegas 2

29 06 2008

DJ and I finally beat Rainbow Six Vegas 2 yesterday. I have to say that the story was VERY disappointing. I didn’t even realize what was going on until the VERY end. Apparently, some dude that I have no memory of betrayed us or something. Who knows. But man, the gameplay is awesome, and actually kind of worth the buy.  The AI was frustrating with the other two computer players, but I think that may have just been DJ’s forgetfulness to tell the team to attack with us and not just wait like five rooms back where we started the level.  I had awesome time with the Aug Para (gun) and my grenades! Oh how good friends we became!  DJ of course, excelled as a sniper and became very friendly with the flashbang, which was like a 50% chance of flashing the enemy and a 50% chance of flashing us. He’ll kill me for saying this, but so many times our team would be at a door way, he’d open the door toss the flashbang, it’d hit the door fram and bounce back into the room with us, causing our whole time to go blind and make the enemy VERY confused as to “what was that noise?!” I mean, I guess that could be a very strategic tactic, because I suppose tha’s the last thing the enemy would expect. Hmmmm….

I talked with my mom today about next summer and realized that I have a LOT of work to do if I want to get a paying internship at a game company. I really need to get a portfolio site up. I should have done it long ago, but I never felt like any of my work was worthy enough. I have way too many ambitions. I need to write out EVERYTHING I want to accomplish and just practice getting myself to focus on one task at a time. I get all caught up in the whole picture of what needs to be done, that I can’t focus on the steps to getting it all done.

I know I haven’t updated my webcomic. I PROMISE THAT WILL HAPPEN THIS WEEK! I just started my online classes this wee. They’re pretty cool! I’m pretty excited about learning more about comics and analyzing games.

As you all know from my previous post, I recently got a Gamefly account. I’m VERY excited about this, because not only will I get to play al the games I keep picking up at the store and saying “I really want this.” and then putting them back and walking out sighing and wishing I had a paying job, BUT (::takes a deep breath::) now I can also feed my achievement addiction. I have to say that i do lead a pretty normal gaming life still, but that little ping noise the Xbox 360 makes when I get a glorious achievement is like….well…I assume like a hit of crack for a recovering addict falling off the wagon, its bittersweet. I squeak and smile with the joy of my gamerscore rising, but then feel ashamed for being so shallow and wanting to do certain things for achievements alone.

I also played a 11 hour and 7 minute game of Civilizations 4 this week. I don’t why, I just randomly felt like it. It was intense. I ruled like half the world, it was amazing.

OH! I got an invite from a Frag Doll (SQUEEL!) to play Rainbow Six Vegas 2 multiplayer the other night! I was so excited and nervous! I accepted and was brought to its lobby. I wanted DJ to play with us too, so I invited him (we were on his xbox at his house). When he accepted it, it kicked me out and he was in. He signed out to try to get me back in, but it didn’t work. By the time I messaged Brooklyn (a frag doll) they were already playing. So she invited me again later. I clicked accept and it just didn’t go thru. I ended up not getting to play with her at all….I died a little inside.

That’s it for now.
