GTA/R* Shelf Update!

I recieved a package from Thomas today.
It was a combined salary (for working at RockstarBase.com) and birthday present.

The package contained Alot of Red Dead Redemption swag and stickers. Awesome stuff!
So now i’ve got both a GTA shelf and a RDR shelf.

Check out the images below of my updated GTA shelf and the new RDR shelf.

Images:

Now ain’t that fucking awesome?!
Once again Thanks alot to Thomas!

Also, i bought Skate 3 yesterday. After about a year of waiting, it’s come down in price to what i felt was appropriate. It cost about $28. Keep in mind thought that it’s not just “half price” from what it was when it was new, because new games in Sweden cost around $94, or 600 SEK.

So i’m going to have some fun with that until L.A Noire comes out in May… Can’t wait for that damn game!

Have a good one!

New L.A Noire Trailer

So, i’m not really the best blogger, posting about one blogpost per 6 months, but i’ll try to be blogging more this year. We’ll see how that works out though.

For now, check out this fan-made trailer i did for L.A Noire:

It’s TV-Spot shortish. If you like it, it’d be awesome if you’d hit that “favourite” button and subscribe to my channel.

I had some fun this weekend!

This weekend, me and my friend had planned we’d do a LAX-Party, as we like to call it. Local Area Xbox Party, as we just play co-op etc on my Xbox instead of LAN’ing with computers.

So first i cleaned my room a bit and fixed my GTA-shelf, that had been infected with other stuff as my room got all filled up with junk. I added the new copies of III, VC and SA aswell as my The Ballad Of Gay Tony T-Shirt that i got from Thomas over at RockstarBase (where him and i write about R* news):

And so at friday evening, the guys came. It was two of my friends, aswell as one of my friends friends, which i now consider a friend aswell. <That’s the best sentance i’ve written in a while.

One of my friends had his Xbox and TV with him so he started playing some game, whilst me and my other friend began playing Nazi Zombies on CoD: World At War.

Funny thing happened. We left a crawler at the end of a round to buy weapons and perks, and when i was about to shoot the zombie to start the next round, he flew up into the air and then just got stuck there, bouncing up and down mid-air. We was going to take a picture but just as we busted out the camera the little dude died. Damn zombies!

We died at level 23 on Der Riese and then we decided to go out for a bit. Just to enjoy the night. We wondered of to my old school which is about to be demolished and replaced by a new one… Some windows were shattered and so we climbed in to take a look.

Once we got back we watched a movie called “The Chair” It was pretty good. It’s about this girl who just moved to an old house.

The girl can hear voices and see ghosts and so she begins searching for what and why she sees all of it.

As it turns out, many years ago in that same house and old man had used a chair to torture a guy that raped and/or killed his daughter.

After that we played some Blur… 3 player split-screen (the friend that had his own xbox didn’t want to play with the rest of us *sadface*), and that was fun.

We also played some Red Dead Redemption and GTA 4. Those are great games to play when you’re super tired. The physics engine makes everything hilarious!

The clock was about 8 or 9 am when we all got tired and so my two friends went to bed, and me and my new friend stayed up playing Blur. The other guy went to check in on the sleeping dudes and then he called me saying “Hey Vic, come watch how cute he (one of my friends) is!”

I walked there and he had put some Action-Man dolls over his arm. Haha. We laughed so hard at it. Problably because we were so tired. But it was pretty funny!

Soon after, we all fell asleep and when we woke up everybody had to go. At the same time my mom asked me if i wanted to go into town and rent some movies. I followed and found some movies i bought. Theese:

And today i watched the “Max Manus” with the Action-Man friend. It was pretty good.

I’m going to the dentist tomorrow morning, so i better go to bed now.
That’s my weekend! Sorry for a pretty long post. I will try to start posting each day.

Gothenburg round-up!

Got back from Gothenburg a couple of days ago and i though i’d write something short about it.

The day i got to the friends we were staying with in Gothenburg, i first visited a tv/technology type store and got to see some 3D tv. It was good. It was better than i expected,
still though, i can’t really explain why or how it’s good. Whenever i watched regular tv after i saw 3D tv, i felt like i didn’t miss out on anything, but i still wanted to see it in 3D.

It’s like it’s a cool thing, and depending on the material (some stuff looks really cool in 3d whilst others just looks stupid) it can be either great or really meh. I’d love to have one, but only when they come down in price, and the technology has become mastered, so that the material we have to watch is really good. Right now, some things were really rough around the edges.

When we got to the peeps we got some great food and socialized. Later that night we watched El Orfanato on blu-ray on his 50″ tv.

Pretty good quality! It was a pretty good movie aswell, but a little weird at some points. I’d give it like a 7.5/10

The day after that we took the bus into Gothenburg. We ended up at a quite fancy resturaunt on “Avenyn” and interestingly, all of the men at the table ordered hamburgers, whilst the females ordered salmon. It tasted great! After that we roamed around the avenue to find a pub with some free seats. We ended up finding one and i got a beer and such such… We had a good time!

When we got home later that evening we watched the first three episodes of “Planet Earth” on Blu-Ray. Some shots were just awesome. That thing, honestly… Wow. So, now i have to get a blu-ray player and a copy of Planet Earth. Hehe.

As i wrote in some of the previous entries, i found some movies aswell as GTA III, VC and SA. I didn’t buy any more games after that, because i didn’t find anything that in my likings.

I did find and buy a lot of different movies though. I’ll post some pictures of which ones later.

The day before we left, i saw Knight and Day on Cinema with my brother and a friend.
It was pretty good actually. I really liked it.

Also, i did find a bunch of different energy drinks that i’d never seen up here (in my home town) though, so i bought those i found (just for collecting the cans). One of them tasted weird, but the other three tasted about as all other normal energy drinks does.

That’s that.

GTA Shelf Updated!

Sorry for not updating yesterday, i totally forgot about it.

So, i went into town and checked some stuff out. I ended up buying GTA 3, GTA VC and GTA SA for PC for a pretty sweet amount of money (a.k.a, not to much). It was a buy 3 pay for 2 kind of deal, and they were all priced the same amount of money (99SEK).

It’ll be a nice update to my GTA Shelf at home to have some fresh copies of theese! 🙂
(As you might know from reading “About GermanScientist” i’m a big GTA fan and i do have a GTA-shelf:)

(It’s not to much at the moment though, but it’s getting better!)

I also found “two” movies. First i found a movie about nazi germany named “Sophie Scholl” and the other one i found is “The Nightmare on Elm Street: Collection” which is all 7 movies.

I’ve become more interested in nazi germany and movies about those times lately, even though i’ve always loved to know more about them.

And thats what i got yesterday. Today i’ve been to another mall and checked out another GameStop and another music/movie place but i didn’t buy anything, although i was close to buying Black and White 2 for about $6.

Until next time. I’m out!

GermanScientist in the South of Sweden!

I am now in Gothenburg. Well actually i’m not really in Gothenburg. I’m in a small city just north of Gothenburg, but it’s still pretty sweet.

Sunday though… Then it’s Gothenburg time! I will stay there for about a week.

Yesterday i just chilled. I woke up late after being awake all night before the trip, aswell as almost the whole time in the hot car.

Today i mainly chilled aswell, as it was raining alot outside. This evening though, we (me, my mom, my brother and the friends we’re staying with) went to a pub called “Harry’s” and enjoyed some great food and drinks along with a quiz along with the desert. I had a good time!

Tomorrow i’ll go and check out this little towns local GameStop and see if they’ve got something interesting!

If i find something interesting i’ll tell you in tomorrows blog post! 🙂

GermanScientist earns §123 a day as a Noob!

Yeah, that § is correct…

I got the urge to play some The Sims… Building houses and stuff.
So even though i knew i, like always, would get tired of playing it after just a couple of days, i installed The Sims 2 (The Sims 3 wouldn’t work on my current computer), created a family and built a house.

Once done i decided to play a little with my Sim “GermanScientist”… He had to get a job, so i went online searching, and he found this offer:

Obviously i had to take it! Making money as a noob. Damn! I wish i could do that in real life…

First i got promoted once, from “Noob” to “Buttonmasher”… Then one day when my little GermanScientist was at work i got a question on what character he should use in a fighting game tournament. I chose the right one and got some Logic points and such…
A day or two later in the game, i got another question, about another tournament… I chose the wrong one and guess what. They fired me.. WHAAAT?!

So they would pay me to be a noob, but i can’t loose one tournament or i’ll get fired? That’s stupid.

Hello World!

Hello everybody! Yay for the first post of this blog!

About a week ago a friend of mine notified me that the local GameStop had an “up to 70%” summer sale.I gathered some change and recycled some sodacans and bottles to get some more change back. Some of the crappier games were really cheap… Like less than $4 and some other great deals aswell..

So this saturday i took the bus into the city and went to GameStop. I ended up buying Lost (The Video Game): Via Domus for about $3,78 and i thought, even though the gameplay itself might suck, as a Lost fan i should enjoy the game enough to cover the costs.

Turned out as i played it last night i actually loved it. Sure, gameplay wise it’s pretty boring and the graphics and animations ain’t the best… But storywise, and just some of the gameplay ideas with the flashbacks just works great for me. And the fact it’s all ment to feel like you’re playing episodes of the show… I just love it.

I also bought Mercenaries 2 for about $6.26. Now i haven’t played that all too much yet, but from what i played that’s definentally a great deal aswell. Just loved one of the first couple of missions when you were supposed to collect “The Devastator” for someone, and as you got closer to the marker you saw a cool tank.

Turned out the marker was pointing at something on the other side of the wall next to the tank though, and that “The Devastator” actually was a pink scooter with flowers in the front. The character said “You’ve got to be kidding me”. I enjoyed that very much!

So i’m very happy with those deals.

Also, this past weekend, my city had it’s annual “Dock festival”. It’s like a one-time-a-year thing (annual, duh), where there’s some stages put up, some so-so artists, stands with stuff, a small carneval, and a beertent. I watched some artists, made my mom win a lucky-wheel thing. I pushed the stop button! So she won a big box of chocolates. After that we went to the beertent and i grabbed a couple of beers and a cider.

Had a good time!
That was my weekend!
