Which Borderlands Class Are You?

Posted in PS3 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2009 by phyzznick

BorderlandsWell this will be my first official game buy for the PS3 excluding the PS3 itself and whatever is bundled with it.
Now ive been watching alll the trailers and caught the review but I still didnt really know what the characters and classes were…. so I looked them up!
Heres a link to a nice little review of the classes in short terms! And good for me because the reviewer often compared them to World of Warcraft classes lol

Now the discussion on who should play who, doesnt really matter because you can play anyone but initially i think its important to start the class you should specialize in to level up throughout primarily and master it.
My opinion is based on looking at all 4 of our playing styles, or from what ive seen of you all, and on the fact that Guido and I (and ross?) will be playing 2 player Co-op often.
Since its a FPS and plays like an RPG it would make sense to play it like how you manage combinations in Warcraft. If you have a Tank and a Healer then your set to handle any obstacle… so thats where I see me and Guido… With BRICK the Berserker (TANK) and ROLAND the combat soldier (OFF/DEF/HEALER)… and since Im more of a Run-and-Gun playstyle the berserker aka shock trooper maybe destined for me (im less likely to die with more HP and shields lol), and Ham could be the Paladin type jack of all trades with solid offense, defence and healing powers…. lol now that im writing this I wanna play the paladin lol WAAAH!!
The other 2 are the damage causers or in Warcraft we call them the DPS (damage per second). MORDEKAI the sniper may suit RealmEnder, because in GoW he was a good sniper (but not as good as me of course lol) and he gets flustered when getting ganked so would be good to keep him at the distance doing the uber headshots.. plus he wears spandex gimp gear so theres another reason why blair may suit him lol jk. That leaves LILITH the thief style character, with her wicked invisibility special talent (that does damaging shockwave to all enemies when entering or exiting invis!!) and if u gank an enemy from behind while invis u do 3-4x more damage… Rogues where certainly the best characters to have in PvP and most annoying when fighting them! SO Roscopct would suit the little inconspicuous invis assassin character that can run in and out of combat at will and turn invis to gank an enemy from behind (especially if its on me… kill stealer rosco lol) or turn invis and do the bolt towards Roland to heal or get protection behind his magic super turret…
If you want to have a look at the skill trees from each character from Borderlands check this, Its similar to WoW.
Anyway what does everyone think?
I wanna play them all! Its just floating ideas/opinions so if u dont wanna play as someone I will, happy to swap! lol


BETA Shopping List (this list is beta as! beware of glitching)

Posted in Game Related, PS3, Xbox360 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 18, 2009 by phyzznick

Well what better way to do a shopping list of all the gaming tech (so I dont forget) than to blogify it!
It will be impossible for me to make a list with any sort of chronological style because unlike the pre-order king guido, I wait for the deals and impulse buy…
Well here goes my Pre-Xmas/Xmas/Boxing Day/New Year and beyond beta as list of things I need!! (not want but neeeeed!! to fuel the appetite!)

Brain Power!

Spawns New Alpha Brain!

Spawns New Alpha Brain!

Well my first purchase is a better Brain CPU/Mega Fan Combo to handle these purchases and the gaming ahead, the current setup is so beta it cant even handle NobyNobyBoy gameplay… fuck!? how is it going to handle Borderlands? Modern Warfare2? jeez the brain is flipping out already at the thought of the brain system resources required to handle it!! BSOD/Faint anyone?! So Ill soon welcome you to Spawns New Alpha Brain v1.0 (Ex-Beta)! 50% better brain processor speed, double the RAM and a Duel fan system upgrade for half price! deal!


2 Down - 1 to go - PS3 coming!

2 Down - 1 to go - PS3 coming!

Well with some great deals out at the moment and I bet more coming for xmas Im sure ill end up with one before xmas, before i even have a 1080p TV to play it on… fuckn beta as! but oh well gotta get the deal when the deals on! Maybe there will be a TV unbeatable sale before xmas, but usually better after? in NY? or have I got this wrong? fuckn brain processor is glitching as we speak, Hard drive headache going nutz and eyeball system has stopped/frozen… thank fuck for the upgrade coming… this is bullshit!!


Probably nearly have it all already!! lol

Probably nearly have it all already!! lol

Have the Bachelors wicked entertainment couch!! but i just feel like I need something else??? Well what more do I need? How about a TV capable of keep up with my new brain capabilities! Dont need some piece of beta shite blowing a pixel on the final boss just because it cant keep up with my 24inch python arms and ripping abs (fuck ive been listening to Brucie on GTA4 waaaay too much!!). Rightie hoe this large investment is giving me the shits! ok literally i think i need to go for a shit… ok back… where was I? oh yeah.. fuck big questions here. Do i go Sony? Samsung? Panasonic? does it really matter?, Do i go LCD? Plasma? LED? once again does it really matter?, What amount is good to spend but not stupid? $4000 overdoing it? And whens the best time to wait to get the best deal? prexmas? boxing day? NY sales? After the NY?… At the moment im liking the look of the Samsung, but think i should go Sony because most of my entertainment is Sony… but im going new and fresh here so that doesnt matter, but am getting a PS3 so could use the bravia sync on it.. or probably never use the option really lol. Am going 46inch at this stage, 1080p obviously, 100hz minimum (most newish ones are, newer are 200hz), Was thinking plasma due to the better contrast ratio, I feel it gives a richer picture of highlights and shadows in the picture, LCDs can look bland on colour, but less problems/risk with them? and less power comsumption. Ok I better stop before my brain literally goes BSOD/RROD/YLOD! What do you guys think?


I will finally join the FNG group who touch themselves way too much!

I will finally join the FNG group who touch themselves way too much!

Well as the caption says Ill finally be joining you all with this new toy… will be getting the 3rd generation version… but as far as I know the 8gb doesnt have the 50% faster processor… anyone know? And with no 16gb Ill have to take the step up to the 32gb id say. If this is the case I wont be buying one immediately unless a Hong Kong friend can get one cheaper but they seem the same price worldwide.. damn Apple! So with a Ps3 coming, a new TV coming that will literally rip my wallet a new asshole I think the Touch will be pushed back a bit… Oh well will be left out again as will just be taking the DS camping again this year when u all are Touching lol

Games & Accessories

Ill be safe @ home now when playing crazy fuckn americans in Borderlands! Im ready for u you fuckn sugared up yankie 12yr old muther f*ckrs!!

Ill be safe @ home now when playing crazy fuckn americans in Borderlands! Im ready for u you fuckn sugared up yankie 12yr old muther f*ckrs!!

Im so getting one of these vests! I can see myself on my couch.. 3metres away from my 46″ Screen playing a FPS multiplayer! Im so going to PWN some ass wearing this.. I maybe fuckin ‘beta as’ in FPS online multiplayer but shit ill look the fuckin business doing it!!
Well havent talked about games yet? jesus this is a gaming site, did you really think id be leaving that out? My god where to start!?!?! Well 360 is going to be my RPG console at the moment (excluding Gears of War, exclusives and random bargain bin games), have still got both Condemned 1 and 2 to go, and just ordered Star Ocean. Others that will be certain will be Dragon Age:Origins (getting way too hyped for this!!) and Mass Effect 2… and I dont really wanna think about anything else as yet as that will take me awhile to finish them up inbetween PS3 bits n bobs. Onto PS3… this will be my FPS console of choice… Borderlands will be a certainty in the NY!, MW2 will be too but most likely pre-owned id say, 6-8hr campaign + MP isnt worth $150!. And well Guido has enough games that ill never catch up, and the thought sickens me lol, May get Fallout3 GOTY, and may get Dragon Age:Origins on PS3 if it truely is epic! oh and i have to platinum WipeOutHD if its the last thing i do on this planet, that mutherf*cken game is going DOWN!! Man i do feel like Steroid junkie Brucie from GTA4 lol Listening to Metallica at the moment probably isnt helping with my anger management either lmao.

Well that completes the BETA As Shopping List.. more to come probably in Beta v1.1 patch update!

Patch v1.1 Update
Well as i said its beta as, yes there is a patch within 24 hours of release of the post… not much different to alot of the games out there, or the ps3 😛
Ok so other NEEDS:
1) Internet connection… with who? have to find out whos best in Brighton area. Heard Telecom no good there?
2)Wireless Modem/Router… will just go the G type, no point of N?? Any brand better than any other?
3) Headset and clipon keypad… well sony have pulled a microsoft here with there pricing thats for sure… $70 each? lol May just keep the bluetooth headset I got with my UK phone.. if i can find it, its in a box… somewhere.

Wow nearly 1200 words in this post… must have been on the Red Bulls last night!

I am the Noby Noby Boy™ master! :-D

Posted in Game Related, PS3 with tags , , , , , , on September 29, 2009 by guid0

I finally got all the trophies in Noby Noby Boy™ tonight! I had to look some of them up because there was NO way you would even fluke some of them. For example you get one for uploading a length of precisely 765m?!? Usually you upload something in the thousands so you could say you have a one in several thousand chance of hitting that number except that you don’t normally bother to upload such a piddly amount. Another one required you to eat precisely and ONLY the letters NOBY NOBY BOY in the in-game user manual?! One additional letter before or after and you don’t get the trophy. I love the fact that you can EAT the user manual!!

I also got a trophy for making my head smaller than my arse lol I used the inbuilt youtube uploading feature so you can see how rediculous this looks!!

I also discovered that you can take screen shots in game. I wish every game had this feature! Some do but not enough although it’s getting more common. Here’s one that shows you that Noby Noby Boy™ isn’t all about Nobs lol Check out the tits on that chick! They’re huge and yes, Noby Noby Boy™ has jiggle physics!! LOL

Team Ninja would be proud!

We have a “hit” blog post

Posted in Uncategorized on September 21, 2009 by blair0

Well according to the WordPress stats, the interwebz went crazy for our blog during August. It seems to be all down to Spawns post about the PS3 Slim. Traffic was averaging about 300 hits per month since the blog started but spiked up to over 10,000 in August, that’s a big jump! It is dipping down again now. Kudos to SpawnSeekSlay for igniting some traffic….you were probably lucky with the timing, lets see if you can do it again? lol

Spike in traffic during August on FNG

Ghosts blurry on the PS3?

Posted in Uncategorized on September 17, 2009 by roscopct

GhostbustersHeard an interesting article on one of my podcasts – apparently the makers of Ghostbusters have released a patch for the PS3 that ups the resolution to match the 360 version?! Weird! What an admission of crappiness that is! “Oh, sorry guys, here’s a patch that makes it look like it should’ve when we released it” Duh! I can’t say I’ve ever heard of this before. The interesting discussion this brings up is that the consensus on the podcast was that no-one seems to be playing this game any more, it’s off the radar already. It seems to me that the lifespan for games is just getting shorter and shorter, there are more hardcore gamers out there who complete games in days instead of months, and there’s more and more games actually coming out.

Your thoughts on games lifespans these day?

Wish Item #234

Touch me please!What I want is an App that keeps an up-to-date list of all of the games that have Trophies. I don’t need any of the other stuff, just the List. The List would be accessible OFFLINE and that’s the key.
I want to be able to walk into a games store and be able to look up ON THE SPOT on my Touch whether or not a game has Trophies (or Achievements too for that matter), without having to be online. There are a lit of games out there which seem right on the cusp of having or not having Trophies and it would be handy to know.
Not an issue for iPhone owners though.

Good time to be a third-person action fan

Posted in Game Related, PS3, Xbox360 with tags , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2009 by blair0

There is quite a bit of genre blending going on in third person action games these days. The trend is toward large open world games that try to do everything. Games that combine shooting and melee combat, RPG, and stealth elements, all in the same game, are becoming the norm. These innovations have produced some awesome games, but I also enjoy third person action games that are more linear and focus on melee combat (otherwise known as hack ‘n’ slash). Luckily there are a number of these due for release at the end of the year. Here is a list:

From the maker of Devil May Cry and Okami, Bayonetta’s combat revolves around the use of combos delivered by both melee and long ranged attacks. Game play looks super fast and smooth.

Exploration and puzzles feature as much as combat in this one. Quite a cool art style, with big over sized badass characters.

Dante’s Inferno
Tame huge beasts and ride them to fight enemies. The tortured environments of hell are set to be the star of the show.

God of War 3
The God of War series reigns supreme in the hack ‘n’ slash genre and the level of hype for GOW3 is off the scale!

nier logo
This is Square Enix’s crack at the genre. The competition is formidable, it will be interesting to see if they can measure up!?

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow
Patrick Stewart and Robert Carlyle’s voice acting alone should make this game worthwhile and Hideo Kojima’s involvement will mean it has amazing production values. It could be the best of the lot!?

The Last Guardian
There’s still a lot of mystery surrounding this one, but the pedigree of Team Ico is all that’s needed to create anticipation.

Worth a mention:

Brutal Legend
An open world hack ‘n’ slasher by Tim Schafer who has the dubious honour of making the highest rated game to sell the least number of copies (Psychonauts). Jack Black voices the main character and Ozzy Osbourne also features in this Heavy Metalfest.

Assassins Creed 2
Doesn’t really need any explanation and more an open world action adventure than hack ‘n’ slash? but I’m really looking forward to it.

Although all the games are looking like they will be extremely high quality, I won’t be able to get them all. At the moment my picks are Dante’s Inferno and Darksiders mainly because I’m attracted to the art styles of both the games. Dante’s is really gritty, dark, and twisted, and it looks like they’ve nailed the fire and brimstone atmosphere of hell perfectly. Darksiders is a lot more colourful and just looks like an epic apocalyptic world to explore. I’m sure GOW3 will be fantastic and will no doubt be a day one purchase when/if I get a PS3.
