All About MrFacepunch
March 1st, 1791
My years of searching and planning culminated several days ago with our biggest victory in years. The Scepter is in the hands of the American Kingdom. In my hands. The surge I felt upon its touch wasastounding to say the least. Finally the faulty, unstable liberty that my prior brethren fought for can be decimated by the true freedom that I will oversee with unquestionable authority, will, and power. But there are still threats. Still pitiful people who yearn for the power I possess. It is laughable that they can even fathom this power, let alone control it were they to obtain it. Indeed this immense, dare I say God-like, power would drive other men mad. My destiny is shown by this fact alone.
There have been reports recently of a wolf-man. Another savage dreaming of my gift. They say he fights with the strength of ten men and possesses the ability to disappear. Like an apparition to quote one of my shaken soldiers, who was executed promptly to halt the spread of rumors. I have often wondered if he could possess a gift such as mine, but that is nonsensical. No man could do what I have done, let alone a savage. Still, he seems to fight alongside the rebels and if his combat abilities are not exaggerated he could prove a nuisance.
The rebels confuse me even now. Why do they fight against me? They fight for a freedom that has already been given to them. An assured freedom preserved only for the strong. They fight for an accomplished dream. Sometimes I hear my own voice in my head, countered by another voice, similar but darker.
What if Im wrong? It might say.
How can a God be wrong? The other would counter.
But I am man.
Were man. But now something more.
And just as early as the voice appears it is trumped. That voice is weak. Pitiful like my enemies and like my enemies it will burn away like the darkness of a newly brightened room. Sometimes I wish they would see my view. Many lives could be saved. But senses return and I realize that the weak have no place in my world. Were they to surrender I would kill them anyway. I have-
An opportunity has arisen. The wolf dies tonight.

Hello again Gamespot community! Today i have an odd topic and i'm not sure how to go about it, but here it goes. A true gamer has a vice, a guilty pleasure, a game that made them the gamer they are today. And no matter how bad that game is to everyone one else, that game holds a special place in that gamers mind. Those games are the ones that bring on the warm fuzzies, the nostalgia, and those games are what im here to talk about today.
Today i had a flashback of the game that made me realize what video games can be, Advent Rising. I was relatively young when i played this game, back before the 360 or PS3, and what i thought would just be a lame rental changed my gaming life. I understand its bad reviews; it had clunky combat, mediocre visuals, and goofy character design. But i will never forget seeing my (Gideon's) fiance drowning behind a wall of bullet-proof glass and there was nothing i could do about it, seeing my (Gideon's) brother stabbed through his heart because i couldn't save him in time. That game made me feel the anguish of solitude, of being the last of my kind, and it was awesome.
I was only one of a handful of people who felt that way, which explains the lack of a sequel (it was supposed to be a trilogy). As disappointing as this was, i wouldn't change the experience for anything in the world. So now, all i ask of you, is don't forget those awesome experiences, and don't be ashamed of your favorite games.
See you star side, Jon
Hey guys. Im Jon and this is my first blog, and it just so happens to be about (drum roll please)...the Gears of War beta! I am a huge Gears fan and getting this beta was like christmas in April for me. However i had to wait an extra week because i didnt get the Bulletstorm Epic Edition, wich is alright because i needed to preorder Gears anyway.
Ok lets get to it, first impressions are pretty fantastic. It's essentially the same multiplayer as its previous installments except prettier, slicker, more in-depth and just plain better. The new weapons certainly got a warm welcome from me, giving the game a much-needed boost in variety. The new mantle kick and bayonet charge abilities add some depth to the combat, requiring you to make quick decisions on approaching battles. However, this is only a beta for a reason: it needs some work. I can be the same distance from my enemy and fire the same Gnasher shotgun as he does, but lose five times out of ten. The game needs consistancy. I may just sound like a butt-hurt guy who needs to shut up but that is my complaint, take it or leave it.
This beta has not slated my thirst for Gears of War 3, but made it even more unbearable. I cannot wait to get my hands on that final product, but September seems so far away. This beta rocks and they have four more months to make it the best third person shooter iv ever played. With what i'v seen so far, it shouldn't be too hard.
