Online Gaming - a new era for online game lovers
Star date :2502.3.17
Crap, that's my bank account number! Never mind that. I am sitting here on the bridge of my very own Starship! Yes, you heard, a Star Ship! The United Federation Of Planets just made it for me. Okay, I admit I got it in the damn game but just go with me here, okay? I am sitting in my Captain's Chair, in my Federation Uniform! (It's made for a guy cos it's kind of pinching my butt! DIdn't they know Women wear uniforms and are Captains too? Haven't they heard of Captain Janeway or Jolene Blalock? Heh!) I am surveying all my crew (well the ones flying the ship, the rest are in the billiard room and having a pint in the recreation room where Data is mixing them a cocktail!)
I am immersed inside the game of Star Trek Online, a radical new departure for online gaming. Radical as in Very Big! It makes Warcraft look like it's happening in your average back garden by comparison. But back to the plot - excuse me while I change back...
Yes. Very soon I will be training them to kill or beat the stuffings out of nasty aliens and shape-shifting weirdoes - bad actors who look like Al Gore. Alien women with larger bodies that your average Pamela Anderson (that's impressive - didn't know Jordan was in the game!) They are a new pestilence in the Universe, nasty folk! There are other nasties out there too; like Federation Ship Insurance Salesmen. Real pain! No I'm kidding the baddies in this Star Trek are the best it has ever managed in all of the hstory of gaming, and smart too.
Yes, Picard is away on shore-leave and someone has substituted my doctor for a damn Hologram! (Didn't they kill off Robert Picardo?) He's not quite to scale - they may have to re-do him in WETA to really make him look human. But my Klingon crew don't like him so much. Ungracious bastards! Anyway, pretty soon I am launching a campaign - a war on my enemies and I am training my crew and co-players in all manner of strategy and tactics to beat the Romulans. I will be recruiting crew also, and tooling up for serious action. Besides - it's the weekend, and I'm dying for some action! (No not that kind of action, the other action.) So has Cheeky Girl Lost it finally? Why the long intro? What's going on here?
Star Trek Online: Fire all Phasers...
Apparently no, I am not going nuts. But believe me when I tell you that Gaming has gone up a few notches moi friends. With a computer than runs pretty fast or a Games console like the XBox 360, the Sony Playstation 3, or equivalent, and a fast internet connection, any one can now have the world of gaming at their finger tips. Some require a setting up of an account some require paying cash, but some also don't.
If reality is boring you and you fancy a change, but don't plan diviorcing your other half just yet, you might want to try - and indulge yourself in some great and challenging online fun with thousands of others who are doing likewise.
Star Trek Online lets you customise your ships in the amazing game very differently - so that no two ships are alike. Pity, I kind of liked the USS Enterprise, but you can't have everything. The game is even SPOCK APROVED. Somehow they got Leonard Nimoy and his younger self SPOCK JR, or ZACHARY QUINTO to voice part of the game, and narrate. It's totally awesome. Finally, someone has made an awesome online game for not just Trekkies but anyone who loves online gaming, and it is very vast out there.
AND JUST WHEN WE WERE ARMING PHASERS AND PREPARING PHOTON TORPEDOES - NOW WE HAVE BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM & ASYLUM 2 TO CONTEND WITH. WE ARE SPOILT. SPORTING GREAT CHARACTERS AND GREAT ANIMATION WITH GRAFIX TO DIE FOR, BATMAN HAS REALLY COME OF AGE. DARKER - SCARIER AND YES, GORE ABOUNDS - BUT PEOPLE JUST LOVE IT. TAKING OUT THE LOCAL CRIMINAL GARBAGE, PUTTING THE FEAR OF ALMIGHTY INTO PEOPLE, AND HIGH TECH BAT-GADGETRY ABOUNDS IN NO SHORT AMOUNT HERE AS THE DARK CRUSADER FINDS THE PERFECT GAME TO THRILL US ALL. THE PLOT, THE HEROES, THE LEVELS FROM HELL, THE CHALLENGES AND PUZZLES, NOT TO MENTION THAT WEIRD NUTTER THE SCARECROW WHO ALMOST STEALS THE SHOW - AND HOW THE HELL DID MARK HAMILL (LUKE SKYWALKER FAME)EVER GET TO DO THIS JOKER SO GOOD? SOMEONE PAID GOOD MONEY FOR THIS! IT'S ALL GOOD.
THIS CHEEKY GIRL LOVED THIS TO BITS AND IT IS A MARVELLOUS GAME. IF I THOUGHT NICKING THIS GAME WAS WORTH IT I'D SAY SERIOUSLY CONSIDER IT. BUT NAH - YOU DON'T WANNA DO THAT. BUY I DO RECOMMEND YOU BUY THIS GAME. IT REALLY MAKES IT AS AN ALL-TIME GREATEST GAME!
IT WAS BOUND TO HAPPEN. SUPREME COMMANDER 2 WAS RELEASED ON 16TH OF MARCH 2010 AND IS EXPLOSIVE! SPORTING FANTASTIC AND STUNNING GRAPHIX AND AMAZING SPECIAL EFFECTS AND WEAPONARY, SC 2 IS GOING TO SET THE BENCH MARK UPWARDS. YOU WILL COMMAND DOZENS OF EXPERIMENTAL NEW UNITS INTO BATTLE ON LAND, SEA AND AIR. NO GAME HAS GONE THIS FAR.
IN THIS GAME, A TOTAL CHANGE FROM THE ABOVE OUTING FOR BATMAN, A BRUTAL WAR HAS SHATTERS THE FRIENDSHIP OF THREE FELLOW OFFICERS. HOW IT PLAYS OUT IS ALL DOWN TO YOU. IT WILL BE AVAILABLE ON XBOX 360, THE PC VERSION IS ALREADY AVAILABLE, THANK GOODNESS. SUPREME COMMANDER 2 PROVES THAT ONLINE GAMING IS ONLY GETTING BETTER. THE BRAVE WILL FIGHT, BUT ONLY LEADERS WILL WIN.
GO OUT AND GET THIS GAME . IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE, SURE YOUR WIFE WILL DIVORCE YOU, YOUR KIDS WILL HATE YOU COS YOU'LL HOG THE CONSOLE / PC ALL DAY, AND EVEN THE FAMILY DOG WILL GIVE YOU DIRTY LOOKS. BUT WHAT DO YOU CARE? SPOIL YOURSELF! THIS IS THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR QUALITY GAMING. NOW HURRY UP! THERE'S A WAR TO BE WON! AND TELL YOUR MISSUS TO PUT THE KETTLE ON! AN ARMY MARCHES ON ITS STOMACH! WE DON'T WANT A CARTMAN ACCIDENT TO HAPPEN IN THE GAMES ROOM DO WE? (Viewers of South Park will never forget! Hot pockets are optional.)
Supreme Commander 2: Check this out!
Yes, it is an all out assault on the non game - playing populace as the pro-gamers head for the Console and prepare to escape and do battle. Let's face it. In these trying and financially troubling times, we need something to cheer us up, and we are not going to find what we want on the darn TV. ("24" IS NOW OFFICIALLY FINISHED ANYWAY.) It's all repeats and it gets more depressing by the day. What we need is a WAR, dammit! Forget Iraq! Forget Afghanistan! Forget the workplace. Forget the bus and the traffic first thing in the morning. Forget Earth. You also have the option to totally obliterate earth if you feel that way, (I know how you feel!) but Gaming is the way of the Future.
Yes we all saw Hurt Locker and it's a piece of crap when compared to that much better film AVATAR made by James Cameron. We all want a piece of that. We all want a bit of escapism too. And all I am doing here is flying the flag for the great Game Producers out there who now are spending budgets equal to or greater than Films in Entertainment. Fancy a piece of the Action? Try Online Gaming and do what that PC or Console was made for doing...
Cheeky Girl out.
