Tomorrow I'm joining the army! Sweden has a fantastic thing - the (compulsory) military service, which today means that you *must* join the army, even though it's not hard at all to skip it. I kind of joined, so I'm being shipped away for 11 months. That doesn't mean it's time for me to say goodbye to Xboxyde, so I won't make this into a badass goodbye letter. See more inside.
I will be able to go home for 50-80% (I have no idea really) of the weekends, but I don't know how often I actually will go home. During some weekends of this year I will be a long distance from my home, so I will probably stay there. That means that I won't be writing that much news for Xboxyde in the upcoming year - at least I think so. Maybe I'll be able to have a laptop down there, who knows. Maybe I'll actually be able to at least visit the forums here and then.
Anyways, I won't make this into a sad letter where I write about how much I love writing here and read your comments and follow the hype of the 360 (and, err, Playsyde and PS3 of course!) - cause this isn't a goodbye, even though the topic says so. When I return I will buy the biggest HDTV I can find, together with a brand new X360 (I sold my recent one this week) - and 11 months of awesome games. I can't wait to buy Gears of War, NHL 07, Saint's Row and all the other kickass titles on the same day in June! I'll see you guys, and even though it won't be as often as it has been for the last months, I'll do my best to visit the place as often as I can.
The world isn't interactive enough. It's easy to compare it to Far Cry... and it's probably not as good as Far Cry. (3 Hours ago)
I only played for about an hour so far but my initial impressions are that the squad and stealth stuff is okay but the vehicle handling is indeed super bad. (3 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: that is pretty crazy considering WD2 pretty much ruined the shooting mechanics from WD1 (probably the only good thing about that game) (3 Hours ago)
I won't call you crazy.. I haven't played either. (6 Hours ago)
People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (8 Hours ago)
I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (9 Hours ago)
That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (9 Hours ago)
