Uncharted 2 in the hizzouse!

2 Nov

IGN.com recently released a list of the top 25 PlayStation 3 games and I promised myself I’d play at least one of them that I hadn’t gotten to yet. And of course, like a fat girl goes immediately for the muffins on the snack table at a company meeting, I beelined for number one: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

As of the time I’m writing this blog entry, I’m about halfway through the game and it’s been epic fun. Our devilishly handsome hero (I think I have a bit of a crush… alright, a HUGE crush), Nathan Drake, is a tongue-in-cheek roguish fortune hunter on a quest to find the secret behind Marco Polo’s lost fleet. Uncharted 2 is great in that it feels like you’re playing through an action adventure movie – it has treasure, sidekicks, guns, chase scenes, the works.

In everything I watch, read, play, listen to, or do, one of the most important factors in deciding if I’ll like it is whether or not it has a sense of humor. Fortunately, Uncharted 2 delivers in this category. Even though it’s primarily an adventure game, it manages to slide in some pretty hilarious dialogue every now and then. I attribute this success to the fact that Nathan Drake is a very well-written character, and the rapport between him and his various teammates is well-scripted. I especially like his interactions with Chloe Frazer, his dark-haired buxom beauty of a companion. Straight dudes – this game’s worth playing for this chick. She’s foxy. Tits like grapefruits and an ass like two perfectly-shaped cantaloupes put together. I want a fruit bowl.

The game has the perfect balance between cut scenes and gameplay – neither becomes tedious. The camera motion is also amazingly designed, again – it strikes a perfect balance in that it guides you to your next step without leaving you in the dark or assuming you’re a retard. And, in all my hours of gameplay thus far, I haven’t had a moment where I let out a string of curse words (FUCKYOUMOTHERFUCKINGFUCKTARDFUCKYOURFUCKHOLEARRRRRGH) because the camera got me stuck in a position where I can’t shoot straight.

Overall, Uncharted 2 deserves its title as best PS3 game of the year so far. It’s engaging, fun, and remarkably addicting. Trust me. I sat on my ass for six hours playing it and didn’t even realize I was about to piss my pants from the three cups of tea I’d had.

Fun Fact: Nathan Fillion, star of Firefly (but you should’ve already known that), is campaigning to play Nathan Drake in the upcoming movie adaptation of the game. He’s doing this through his Twitter (http://twitter.com/nathanfillion) and you can support him by using the hashtag #fillionfordrake. It’s a PERFECT fit. You can trust me. Now, get in the windowless van cuz I’ve got some candy for ya.

Sh*t I’m Excited For This Week… 10/10/10

8 Oct

Wow. I didn’t even realize the date was 10/10/10 when I wrote that. May this day go down in thegspot’s blogging history!

What is truly special about this date in particular, though, is that we, Megawoman and I, are actually going out. That’s right, outside into the sunlight and where the trees breathe. As you can tell, I run two blogs and work a full-time job so… when I do get to go out I get pretty excited. As does Megawoman. I don’t mean to exclude Mighty!Marz from this but I honestly have not met her yet since starting this blog, though she is a great friend of Megawoman’s. I love all her entries, so I guess I could say that she’d be the third cousin I didn’t know was so awesome/have never met in my life.

So, Megawoman and I are going out on a Sunday night, in Hollywood–scandalous, I know.

We’re going to the Halo:Reach The Show performance at the UCB (Upright Citizen’s Brigade) Theatre. Yes, that Halo. You should probably know by now that anytime “halo” is mentioned on this blog, it only refers to one thing and it’s not that Beyonce song.

Nathan Fillion of Castle … ok, Firefly fame (more notably Firefly for us ladies writing this blog) is starring, and Rileah, Michele and Milynn of Team Unicorn are supposedly part of this show.

Now, Megawoman and I might have a ton of things in common, but we also have many things we stand on complete opposite sides of the coin about. These things include:

1. Boys. I like ’em Asian, she rolls her eyes when we hit up Koreatown.
2. Clothing. I work in the fashion industry, she wears the same thing every time we hang out.
3. Team Unicorn. She blogged about them, I don’t have that much respect for them because they pronounced “manga’ incorrectly. (Yeah, yeah, yeah I’m one of THOSE snobs…) At least they did not cosplay fail–you know exactly what I mean by THAT.

I am honestly lukewarm about Nathan Fillion and could care less about Team Unicorn, but I do like Halo.

Tickets are still on sale for $5 (you must reserve), so if you’re in the area on Sunday night, or you are a rabid Nathan Fillion fangirl or Team Unicorn fangirl/fanboy, this might be worth checking out.
