Thumbs Down To A Few Things – Korea

Hello, again. Nice of you all to join me on this day. On time with this blog, thank you, thank you! So there are a few things that I’ve read about during the week that have kinda have made me think “Thumbs Down to that”.

I personally want to start with the whole Bethesda thing and with Fallout 3. They recently have announced on their site and the Fallout official web page that the PC and X360 versions of the game will be getting updates and patches as well as the new expansions. Apparently it was announced also before the games release that the PS3 version would not be getting expansions. Does this make me angry? Normally, yes it would. Considering I spent my time trading in my games and pay 13 dollars to get the game. Spend 40+ hrs on finishing the game and stuff. I’d like to see some expansions. But alas, I don’t get any and I’m not really that angry. Since I know Bethesda was just doing their job and that Microsoft just offered a lot more money than Sony did. Thumbs down to the decision to never release it on the PS3 even before the game was released on the console.

If they decide to release some sort of things like Oblivion, I’ll probably trade in my copy for a used copy of it. I won’t be boycotting Bethesda for this decision, but I’m slightly disappointed.

Next I’d like to say “Thumbs Down” to sore losers in HD Remix. You know the ones that call you a bitch or cheesy or just drop the game while you have them in the third rep of a noogie trap (That jerk!). Sure it’s fun to make them rage quit and taunt you, but come on. Don’t be a complete and utter sore loser and take it out on a note. You’re just saying that stuff because you’re safe behind your TV/Monitor. If you saw a 5 foot 10 Korean guy who’s kinda chunky playing you, would you say that? I don’t think you would. (This part does not apply to the people I play locally).

I haven’t been playing too much lately, trying to put in Resistance 2 into my PS3, but it always just pops out and in goes Fallout 3 again. Wow, that addicting! Don’t get me wrong Resistance 2 is a good game, but I think I’ll enjoy it with an HD screen and playing it on 720p.

Last Saturday was a great time for a majority of us since we actually got to test out the system link for Left 4 Dead. Let me tell you, you NEED two HD screens, the horizontal split kinda sucked ass. We must have stayed on there for like 3-4 hours trying to beat No Mercy on Advanced (At least that’s what it seemed like). I vote for next time that we try a tactic like this or this (The latter one requires sniper skills!) Good stuff though. We need to do it more.

Anyways I’m pretty much done with this article, I’ve probably missed out on a few things that I wanted to talk about. But I’ll leave that for later. As for gatherings, I think something is going down on Saturday or something or maybe Friday, depends on what’s going on. Drop us a line or something in the Gatherings Thread on the forums. Well I’m out, GGPO players.

James “Korea” Kim
