Late late 03/14/10

March 15, 2010

This is a late late post. That makes me sad. I’ve never been this late.

Games I watched

I’ll be honest. I’m trying to think of games I saw last week and the week before and I can’t remember much. I am positive that some sports were watched though. I caught parts of some Kings and Sharks game. Oh, I also remember catching some of the NHL on NBC sunday game. The Kings lost as usual and the hockey game was exciting. Yes, titillating news for a sports blog.

Other high notes

Nothing. Zach Galifinakis was pretty funny on SNL. Tiger will play before the the Masters (I think). and Favre will play next year. Sorry I know these are cheap but I got nothin.

My crappy short review – Left 4 Dead

Played this co-op with a friend like Halo 3: ODST. Good game. Fast zombies. The zombie package must be good if fast zombies are used. Must be really fun with 4 human players. Any and every 1st person shooter big fan should check out Left 4 Dead. It has a pretty unique trigger finger style. Its just damn fast. I guess some can say it is short and can get repetitive. Once you learn to cover an area well with 4 people, the next next and next area won’t be incredibly different than the last. Note though that I’m not taking much multiplayer vs online or offline experience into the score because I don’t have xbox live. and I just don’t play much online games nowadays.

and finally

I will try to post early to cover this week. It is selection Sunday today. March madness is good easy fun.  pick a team and hope they win.

Late Olympics wrap-up 03/05/10

March 6, 2010

argh. This post is late. I try to get them posted Monday. Tues/Wednesday at the lastest. Not that anyone cares but I guess I do. I surprisingly haven’t missed a weekly post yet.

Games I watched

I did watch the Canada vs USA olympic hockey final. Superb game. I don’t know what you could ask for more. I guess US winning for us Americans. Regardless, super entertaining game. Now that this is over I’m looking forward to catching Sharks games.

Other high notes

There has been talk of whether Warriors’ Stephen Curry or Kings’ Tyreke Evans. Of course My vote goes for Reke. I just hope that the warriors keep Curry around and not trade him like all the talent the teams gets a hold of.

My crappy short review – Halo 3: ODST

Another 1st person shooter beaten. I co-oped this one this time. The experience didn’t really feel much different that my solo adventures but its more fun. I liked Halo 3. It was fun and solid. ODST is just as fun. The hub main world where you wander as a rookie in the streets is a little annoying. Its dark and kinda boring wandering around looking for the target checkpoint. Cool voice acting and cool story. Nerd fav Nathon Fillion plays a major roll. This is hard to grade. 8.4/10

and finally

The olympics are over. Spring training has started. Baseball “season” is way too long.
