Wasteland Empires

Still playing this game.  They had made a change a few days ago where they forced you to be in the game to build your army to fight.  Well, that really blows as I'm not going to set there waiting on that.  My fighting time went down and I spent less time in the game than I did before.  Last night the game updated again and they fixed it so it does it offline from what I can tell.

The game is horrible about giving you what you need.  You might destroy the building you need but it might not drop anything out.  Yet that's the only building in the game that will drop that item and only 1 exist in each town.  This part of the game is the most annoying part.  Running out resources is rough and you are forced to fight and yet you can't get what you need.  So you get stuck waiting unless you want to spend money to buy it but if you keep that routine up, you'll sink money into the game.

I've expanded out a little bit more and there are more bigger items that you can't scavenge that say coming soon.  You are stuck building around them and if you have a layout for a town, it's going to mess you up.  I seriously need them to start opening that stuff up in the game or take them off the map.  They started small with a dune buggy and a tank.  Now it's gas stations and the top of a tall glass building from what I unlocked.  I know the game is beta but you can't leave that stuff locked like that forever.  They need to do something with those items.

They also need to get to turning the clan stuff on.  Most people have made clans yet there is only 1 person in them.  Need to open this game up and see what that has to offer so people will want to fight more.  Would help make the game more interesting and add even more to it.  That part needs to hurry up.

Gears of War 3 and New Headset

Started up GOW3 last night and the game hung up on me right when I picked up the money on the desk.  I had to wait until all the names showed up but I could never hit B to get it off the screen.  Had to start it back over to clear it out.  That was annoying.

The first seen with everything building itself reminded me of Alan Wake.  They so had to pull that idea from that game.

Was playing through with 2 friends last night.  They helped me find the collectibles as I was going through.  They wont' be there tonight, so I'll probably start missing them unless I pull up a guide to know where they are.

The new headset worked great though.  It didn't drop out any like the old one does.  I thought the plastic piece going around my ear would hurt after a while but it never did.  The piece that set on my ear did so I'm going to switch it out to see if that will help on that.

Gears of War 3, Sims 3 Pets, and new Headset

Finally got GOW3 today.  I'll be happy to load this up and start playing through it.

I wonder how much Dead Island I'll play now that I have this.

Picked up Sims 3 Pets when it was $20 just a few days ago.  Wife and kids are enjoying that so far.  No achievements have popped so that means it's not going to be easy to finish this Sims game either.

I also got the new Headset for the 360 and my phone.  I'll be happy to get this charged up.  The first wireless headset keeps dropping out and going to the TV and back to my headset.  Hopefully the new one won't do that and will stay connected.
