I believe I was on either the last or second last mission in Halo 4 when I was told to turn it off and get ready for bed. You have no idea how infuriating that is! Not to mention that I won't be able to play it for most of the weekend due to an overnight brony party at my friend's place, where we watch our favourite episodes from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, then on Saturday at 10:00 am watch the Season 3 premiere. Following that is the new show Littlest Pet Shop, which actually looks decent.
Well, time for bed now. Ciao!


Forgot I have to do two more blog posts for tomorrow, when the blogs are marked for the last time. I don't know if I'll continue to update this, maybe I will, maybe I'll move it to a different site and use Wordpress, or use Tumblr, since not many people comment anyway (I am aware you can comment on Tumblr blogs but the system's a little strange IMO).
So. Listening to the album The Pony Way by All Levels at Once. It's free, and available in almost any format you could ever need (besides uncompressed WAV, though that'd probably be over 1 GB, seeing as how the lossless formats already available are almost that). I highly recommend it, some great electronica for your listening pleasure. My favourite songs are "Fluttershy's Lament" and "Changeling". (You can also preview each song if you don't feel like downloading the whole album.)
Now I am off to change the liner in my cat's litterbox, because she likes to rip giant holes in them, and then: Halo 4 Co-op Campaign! :-D


Provided I have no Religion homework (I type this during 4th period and Religion is 5th), I will be free tonight. What do I plan to do with my time? Play Halo 4. And play. And play.
I only got to play it between two or three hours on launch day (Tuesday) and I played one game of Regicide ( yesterday between skating and youth group.
The little of Infinity (multiplayer), or more specifically, War Games, I have played gives me a great first impression. The UI first of all throughout the game is excellent and easily navigable (not to mention pretty), and the gameplay is amazing. The concerns that Halo is becoming Call of Duty are unwarranted. True it has customizable loadouts, but it takes the best elements of COD and scraps all the rest while still staying Halo.

Halo 4

Got Halo 4 yesterday, the day it launched. Had little time to play it, unfortunately, and likely I'll have no time at all tonight. :'(
The Campaign is all I've played so far, and Co-op, so I don't get the full-screen experience (or even half the screen... the game engine squishes the two players into what almost looks like 4:3 boxes). It really is a gorgeous game, and the sound design is amazing (unfortunately, no surround sound, but the sound positioning even with just a 2.1 system is superb). All the weapons seem pretty balanced, except the Beam Rifle and Binary Rifle. Mind you, they're snipers, so it makes sense that they can take out enemies with just one or two shots.
