Yeahhhh... umm hi?

Welp looks like I'm out of excuses, honestly I'm just gonna casually write here every time I feel like it for now, I get this sudden mood changes that make me think this time I'll be inspired and keep writing but now I understand that's just bullshit. So hey now that I'm here might as well jump into it.

What have I done all this time? What have I been up to? Well, lot's of stuff really but mainly:

Yep, Dota 2, this new valve game caught my eye about 6 months ago, I only played it because a friend of mine had an extra invite so I decided might as well give it a try, "I'm sure it's gonna bore me anyway" boy was I wrong.

Being my first dota-like I came into this game knowing absolutely nothing and started to make my way up the trench, lot's of flaming and retarded teammates later I was 622 hours in approaching fast to my many hours in 4 years of TF2 and in just about 6 months.

Well the fact that you're tied with every game and every game takes about an hour is pretty easy to log in lots of hours on this.

This game is the very definition of huge learning curve, every game you keep learning no matter how much time you've put into it.

These days I put less time into it, but those long vacation days with nothing to do sure went by really fast, if anyone is interested in getting in I might still have an invite or two laying around so contact me fast.

I recommend this game to everyone but I also warn you that you must enter prepared to suck really bad and to get flamed, with time you grow a tougher skin and realize why it can be so frustrating having bad teammates

Anyway I'll probably talk about a movie or a special series you probably watched by now, but for now I might even go play some Dota.

A new era (or just another phase)

Well..umm, damn this is awkward.

How do you even revive a blog? Sure 6 months may not seem like a lot but internet time it's a damn eternity.

It's funny how your perception of time changes, I mean with the end of 2012 right around the corner I think how fast this year went by and how easy days go by without you even noticing, but then at the same time I look at all these posts I made back in the beginning of they year and they feel really far away, hell I might even dare to say I feel like someone different, after all in this 6 months I had the best vacations of my life, turned 18, started a new semester, met tons of people and I even managed to become even lazier.

So today I was here taking a break from not doing my homework and procrastinating things and suddenly thinking of how fast the year went by I remembered one of the goals I was supposed to do this year, which is starting a blog and updating it regular, well that one went down quick.

In a desperate attempt to keep wasting my time I decided to start again, and instead of writting 5 pages of all these new opinions I've gained over the months I'll just post them along the days, let's see how long I last this time.

I'll close this post with at least something relevant to the blog:
Dota 2 is an awesome game and it is probably more addictive than tobacco, but the details on that await on another post.

A new wind, Deus Ex: HR review

Today I remembered I had a blog and finally got the energy to start writing on it again, I'm really sad this just turned out to be yet another proof at I'm a lazy procrastinating bum, I just can't seem to get a steady hobby to do, because just in a few weeks I get tired and it feels more like an obligation, I'm such a failure when it comes to this type of stuff, same happened trying to learn the guitar, piano, harmonica, trying to learn how to do 3d models, how to get into the whole visual effects thing. I get a lot of energy to do it start very enthusiastic and lose interest in a couple of days/weeks/months, maybe is my way of trying everything to find what I love, but I really hate myself for it.

Anyway I don't want to lie to myself saying this time will be different and this time I will get on schedule and start blogging, but at least every now and then I'm gonna get this feeling that I should write again, if that's good enough, at least I made it to 100 before I lost it completely, thanks.

Well let's get right to it, Deus Ex: Human Revolution:
The recent sequel of Deus Ex a game that still is incredibly awesome, maybe the graphics didn't age too well, but that would be a really really bad excuse to not play such a great game that was decades ahead of it's time.

Of course there is Invisible wars, but we don't like that, we really don't..... seriously don't even mention the name.

So does Human Revolution live up to the great Deus Ex name?
Fuck yes.

This game did everything right to not be an exact rehash of the original but stayed close enough to not be considered another great franchise ruined, one of the best things about Deus Ex is how you can enter any mission and complete it any way you want, either go in there as a psycho and kill everyone, or go super snake mode and get the mission done without ever getting seen, this and the fact that the story is so flexible depending in your actions makes Deus Ex what it is, Human Revolution did this right and adapted well to modern games, some argue cover system and simplified choices ruined the game, in my opinion cover system was a great way to improve your stealth technique and prevent it of being frustrating and the simple choices could be better but certainly don't ruin the game.

Overall you just get a feeling you don't get from many games, it's incredibly fun and you will definitely will want to play it more than once.

This without a doubt is my pick for GOTY 2011.

Not dead, EA is the worst company of americ

Ok, so if you didn't notice by the 2 weeks of no updates I was in vacation, and will be next week too so that's that, I just can't get around on finishing reviews and end up wasting a lot of time on the net, I finally finished Deus Ex HR so that's coming soon.

In other news April fool's was kind of weak this year except for the google earth quest map and the Toonami revival that led to thousands of fans to ask for it to come back for real, now that's something I would like.

Aaaand in other news, EA was declared the worst company in america as of right now, Ouch.

I mean I'm not ssaying it's a good company, not one bit, but worse than the bank of america, worse than any other company out there..... well, let's just hope this sends the message to EA, so they stop milking sports franchises, turning every good franchise into shit and trying to launch a digital distribution program that competes with steam and ahs intrusive DRM.

The Walking Dead Finale

Well finally midterms are over tomorrow, and I just realized I haven't updated almost since they started, so what better thing to post about than the season 2 finale of one of the most watched TV shows.

Or maybe the comic it's all based on? yeah that seems about right, so if you don't watch the series already that really is no excuse for no reading the comics, I mean I am no comic reader myself, maybe read only the most popular ones and I never got into a comic series, but I'm in vol 7 of the walking dead right now, and I gotta tell you it's fucking awesome, and with a very different feel of the show too.

So if you have read the comics I know you were as exited as me when the prison was shown at the end, even if you haven't because most people agree that this is where the comics kick off and get real good.

Well let's just hope the series does too, they have treated a lot of things differently and skipped a lot of scenes that maybe would be too gruesome for TV, but for the most part and at the end of the day, it's just a zombie show to keep you entertained, maybe it has some flawed logic or bad dialog, too me it's like watching a horror movie, or a horror show rather.

Mass effect 3 sucks?!?

So the Mass Effect series has been going on for a while now and it's often praised for it's desicion making gameplay, and though it doesn't reach deus ex levels where you can really get different endings, the relationships between the characters do change

So with a series this anticipated is hard to please all fans, but damn, as soon as the game was out, thousands of angry bioware fans and haters started picking on every single detail and the war commenced, I don't wanna spoil the ending but you probably won't like it and there are a lot of posts going around saying how they used stock photos for several things and claimed them as their own, how they copied other games, etc.

Personally I've never been a fan of the series but the discussions are just too loud for me to not hear them, and if anything this game did cause some controversy.

The avengers, Men in Black 3

Well I'm running out of excuses but it's the same as last week, it doesn't feel like I posted so long ago but I did, and I can't say there's nothing to talk about because there is, a lot.

However I'm going to skip any games today and talk some movies, specifically 2 trailers released this week, the avengers and MIB 3, one being one of the movies that has so much hype build up that I will be impressed if it lives to it's expectations and the other being a sequel to one of my favorite movies.

As for now both movies look really good, Avengers feels like its gonna be Iron Man 3: Look How Awesome I Am, and hey I'm not complaining it looks awesome and I can't wait to see it, same with MIB 3 that young K had me going for a while.

I really don't wanna say it ahs to be good or bad but I obviously hope they are both a success, until then we can only wait and rewatch that last scene of the avengers trailer, so good.
