Two are as good as two too

There is nothing like playing with someone. Earlier I was playing the latest Lara Croft game with my sisters boyfriend on co-op mode. The game can be played with just one person but without a second person just makes to game playable and not really fun. Like I am with Borderlands Lara Croft and the GOL is more fun with another person. This game is made with for two player fun but one person can this enjoy it, yet to the two player design all the unlockables can't be gotten without another player by your side, next room over, or online. I've played many games online with others but playing today shows that two controllers are funner with two players.

I just had some wet and wild fun!

I just enjoyed some gaming on the high seas. Tonight was one of the many Xbox 360 game with the developers nights. The game for this fun Q&A was Hydro Thunder Hurricane. There were two developers playing and so happened to be in the first room with one of them. We played for about six or more races.

I got to ask some questions, like "what made them think of doing a sequel?".
He replied that Microsoft want them to do a different boat game that had a few good ideas in it but someone brought up the first Hydro Thunder then the focus turned to making a sequel leaving the original game plan behind.

Another player asked, " if there were going to be more DLC?".
The developer who I'll call Vec for here on said that topic comes up now and then but it is up to Microsoft if there can make more or not, so far they still say no.

Vec was asked, "if the team were going to make a game that would be sold in stores?".
He said they would like to have a game sold in a store, but they just haven't had a chance to yet.

I asked Vec, "besides new boats and tracks, what new game modes will be added in future DLC?".
He said that they thought of some. Later while playing a race other players ask about a multiplayer gauntlet mode and Vec said they did think of it but didn't have time to make it.

A player asked, "how long did it take to make the game?".
Vec said it took about six months to make the demo for Microsoft to look over and less than a year to make the full game, about 14 months or so. He added that there are seven people who work on the game.

During a break in game play I asked, "if they thought of making a Kinect game?".
Vec said that it was something they would like to do. He asked back who had one and only one player said he did.

A question asked was, "what is the next game they were working on?".
Vec replied that they are not allowed to reveal it right now but it will be announced soon like in a week or so.

While playing a race with all ducks the players started to say that they want an award for beating someone with a duck which Vec agrees are the worst boat in the game. Vec said they think about it.

I asked, "were there any other easter eggs besides the Blood Wave poster in the hut?".
Vec said that there were some fake ads for Xbox 360 and the team put in some friends name in the game as well.

Someone asked, " what other games have the team worked on?".
Vec said that HTH was their first game but they worked on others before they came together.

As the last race started all the player made it clear that track was really buggy.
Vec said he knows and they didn't how time for any update or patches to fix it for now.

That is all I can remember at this time. It really fun even though I was usually last and Vec didn't do so well ether.

Superbowl still not that interesting

Superbowl is over again and I only saw a few minutes of it. Football like almost all sports that in the world are some thing I just don't care for. Well, football still brings fun and joy to more people than I can count. So let the game...CONTINUE!

The time I have warned you all about has come.

I have known that this time was coming and have feared for it. Milk cost more than gas. I have noticed the price has been going up for the past few years, and now the price has reached $3 a gallon. I'm scared. Milk is my main source of fluid, but now I may have time buying some. The government should step in.

Shigeru Miyamoto was right!

Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto said that he can't play the older Mario games on the latest TVs due to the fact that HD shows him all the imperfections that are in the games. Last night I saw what he met. Playing Sonic 2 on Xbox 360 with a HD 1080 42" TV just shows that it looks horror able. This port also has a slight delay with the button and hit detention seems to be off some times. Thank game gods that Sonic 4 episode 1 is out because that game is pretty much a remake of Sonic 2 with better gameplay and graphics. That point used to bother me when I first played it, but now that I played Sonic 2 again I see that it what we need games of today for gamers of today.

What first person are you?

Okay, I give. First person shooters are the big money makers now a days. I play some my self like: Left 4 Dead 1&2, Call Of Duty 4, Perfect Dark, Battlefield 1943, and more that I can't think of right now. This passed week I've been playing a lot of Battlefield 1943 to collect the in game award stamps. Left 4 Dead games are some that I will make time to play. In Call Of Duty 4 I die in multilayer a lot but I have a little fun now and than. I already talked about Borderlands. In a way you can say that all games are in a first person view. First person shooters do have up and downs but there is one for everyone.

Dead of winter

I am like many people in this area that are do to the high amounts of snow and ice. What can I do to pass the time? Go over zombie stuff of course. I picked on a used issue of "IZOMIBE" #7, there is a new mode on "Left 4 Dead" this week, a review of a bad zombie movie is online, catch up on a online zombie game, a new web series with zombies have started, and I'd like to go over my DVDs with the brain eaters in them. After some Z goodness I may stick my teeth in to a steak to feel the part of the other side. All of this will also help pass the time as this bite on my arms stops bleeding.
