Hey peeps,

I'll be away for about a week and a bit.
Why? Well, some of my relatives from Canada are coming over which means I'd be busy and stuff. Not only that, I've got loads of Christmas parties coming up, and I myself am gonna host my own one. I'd also probably host an e-party on PSN to share the merriness with my fellow YouTube comrades.

But since they are coming over, I need to act like a mature kid.
What would they think if they saw me early in the morning, in my boxers, playing Spyro, heh?

So I'll be back in action once those guys are gone.
GUN is currently on hold then!

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is out!

Another aniticipated game is out after a long time. I was disappointed with Call of Duty: World at War and was hoping for an improvement and I guess Modern Warfare 2 is way better than World at War but the thing is that I still am not satisfied. I only played the game at my friend's house but it was somewhat too cinematic if you know what I mean. It was moving towards a more cinematic, 3rd-person kind of style. It didn't feel like an intense war, it just felt like an ordinary FPS no different to Killzone or Halo. Nothing special...CoD was famous for it's awesome war-based style/plot and stuff but no it felt like it was more of a gang war then a WORLD war :P

Apart from that the game seems to be alright. Not as great as the first one, nor is it worth the full price but I heard it was being sold at Sainsburys (A supermarket in the UK) for just £26!!
That's great! I mean, CoD4 is still £29.99!! But there was a special offer at £26 which will last till Saturday. Might get it then.

There were huge crowds outside HMW, waiting up to get their copy of the game.
Loads of people were wearing camo outfits and dressing up like soldiers.
It was jokes!

Mah Halloween Experience

Well guess what, Halloween just went by and I didn't even know.
I even bought myself a new mask and planned to go around getting sweeties as well as stealing sweets from the smaller kids by scaring them with my fake moustache.

Anyway, instead I spent the time watching stuff and playing stuff. I got up at 6AM roughly (I set my alarm) and got ready, went downstairs and played The Ballad of Gay Tony till 9AM. Then I felt dead tired so planned to go for a little drive. My mom asked me to get some eggs anyway (I was staying with my parents for the last week and a bit) so I went down to Tesco which is a half hour drive away. There was a Sainsburys nearby but I decided to waste more time whilst my dad was at home, sulking about having no breakfast to eat. I got the eggs, a 6-pack of the cheap Tesco brand cola (weirdly enough it was only cheaper than official Cola by 15 pence) but yet I got it. I also bought some DVDs for some unknown reason. I purchased South Park Season 9 as well as The Simpsons Classics which had 4 episodes on it. I also then bought "My Bloody Valentine" which was a crap film.

I watched pretty much everything. When I got to Episodes 7 of South Park I got tired of it so watched The Simpsons and got it all done. Then I watched "My Bloody Valentine" and skipped a few bits cause it was pointless trash. Then my mom wanted to watch some stuff about houses and crap so I spent time finishing some work in my office (the toilets upstairs).

There was gonna be a farewell party so we left at like 8 or 9 PM and made it there within half an hour luckily due to no traffic. The food was alright but otherwise an average night. Made it back home at 12:30AM roughly, and then just watched an extra episode of South Park and went to bed, forgetting that I'd have to get up earily in the morning to finish some important work. So I ended up getting up at 7AM (Actually it's 8AM but there was an hour change, which is good cause it felt longer) and drove off to my friend's house to finish these accounting crap.

Anyway, after I got that done I went back home.
