Weekend end game update: zombies, zombies and more ugly things
|Apprentice Rank Insignia|
In any case, to break up the monotony of dying over and over again by aliens, I decided to take advantage of xbox live, since it's ending soon, and play some halo multiplayer where I quickly proceeded to get pwned. I did manage to make the rank of Apprentice. OK, sure, it's quite low on the ranking scheme, but I did get 2XP to get there (1XP per hour it seems by my rate...). What I learned here was that I am much better in a hand-to-hand combat match (with one of those alien blades) than in a match where everyone has guns. Unfortunately for me, most matches had guns and were not not blade-only. Oh well. Gotta figure out how to be in blade-only matches.
To break up the monotony of getting pwned I decided to look at two zombie games. Left 4 Dead, or "holy f*ck these zombies are fast!" and Deadrising, or "wow...these are Romero zombies..." Now Deadrising wasn't bad, but the assault controls are a bit clunky (maybe that's why the zombies are slow). The thing that I hate most about this game is that you have to find a save point. Seriously? What is this? 1999? Why can't I save on-demand? or better yet, auto-save for me! Left 4 Dead I played for 20 minutes. I didn't want to get too far into it considering that I want to finish Halo first. So far this game seems like a better zombie game, but Deadrising has that capcom look and feel that makes me nostalgic for those days of yesteryear at the arcades :-)
