As far as insomnia goes, I'm a veteran.
It's 4:37AM right now and I'm sitting on my computer listening to iTunes on random. Around midnight, I was playing Call of Duty 4 (my latest addiction) but after the people I was playing with went to sleep, I signed off. Right now I'm starting to wonder if I should bother sleeping; I might as well just take a walk into town and get a cup of coffee or a "monster" before walking back onto campus for breakfast at Franklin Dining Common.
I'm going to talk briefly about my thoughts on the future of online gaming.
To start off, I think that the best of "first person shooters" died with Battlefield 1942 in 2004.(???) Since then, Battlefield Vietnam, Battlefield 2, and Battlefield 2142 have failed to live up to the standards of the series origional. Call of Duty 1 was great, but I never want to LAN it again, you can only play it so much and I've played it more than that given amount. Call of Duty 2 is Call of Duty 1 with better graphics and longer fuses on grenades, lame. They never made Call of Duty 3 for PC...... Call of Duty 4 was great, and still is, but nobody at LAN can run it besides me. Call of Duty: World at War is alright, but I didn't buy it because I need more additions from COD4 than guarddogs, the tanks are pretty lame. Lets talk about strategy games! AoE (Age of Empires) isn't really my kind of thing, 2 and 3 are very different and good for LAN, but playing them alone makes me feel like a failure. The Sims (2).... suuuuuuucccccccckkkkssss! Sims 3 is coming out soon, I'm going to buy it for Julie but I'll never play it. *Maybe The Sims would be good if you could buy guns and go to war with your neighbors*. A new game called Battlefield Heroes is in BETA now, get your key quickly before the closed beta fills up. I'm hoping for a lot of good gameplay from this game, but not expecting it. It looks like Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory which was awesome, but on the Quake 3 engine which is a bit outdated now. Other than that, Battlefield 1943: Pacific is coming out in Q4 2009 supposedly, but I'm a bit burnt out on Wake Island.
Ah well! I guess I'll take a shower.
Now playing: Bright Eyes - Happy Birthday To Me (Feb. 15)
