All About financeranger
Welcome to my Blog, where comments and blog posts are rare.
I mainly play Gran Turismo & Call of Duty so enjoy.
I rented Call of Duty World at War for the Wii since my PS3 has been down and had fun, but overall the Wii version of this game is about 1/2 the game that the PS3 and XBOX360 is.
Some missions are not even in the single player campaign(Black cats - air gunnery mission), many modes for online matches were left out (S&D, Domination, capture the flag, sabotage, Headquarters)
Also no unique challenges were in the rewards system other than the simple marksmanship challenges (shoot XX number of people with X weapon).
Overall I give it a 6 out of 10, but if you only have a Wii it is a good game. It took some time to get used to the controls, but I ended up completing the regular single player and the online mode to level 65 (max besides prestige, in which you just go to level 65 over and over again) in 12 days.
Oh, and this game HAS NO ZOMBIES either....what????
Oh yeah zombies are not family fun, but shooting people is????
Well I finally did it, I woke up before everyone else and hit the stores for some good deals. I had to read the paper and ads for an hour or so then I made a spreadsheet so I could cross-refrence the stores, their hours, and the "deals".
I was able to get to Target at 4:40 AM and get in a line that wrapped to the end of the entire shopping center (about 500 feet). After the store opened I made it right to the desired item and was out the door to the next store. The next store was Radio shack and the line was 10 people, I ended up number 2 and got one of the limited items. The next store was Big-lots, I found quite a few items there and then off to Wal-mart to finish it all. That store was a mad house. I got there at 7AM and they still had a good amount of stuff, but I was not trying to get a $200 laptop or $250 LCD (32 in). I was home by 8 AM and I have 70% of the kids shopping done. I will post some of the deals I got after the holidays so the kids do not find out
I went to the Seattle Auto Show this year and had fun, but it was not like the big auto shows (LA, Frankfurt).
Some cars that were cool up close and personal:
Chevrolet Stingray (concept from Transformers 2)
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
Lambos & Ferrari's
Biggest disappointment -
Dodge has two Challengers but both were locked
Ford Tarus SHO sticker price was $47K? for a Ford?
Nothing to do besides ONE Forza simulator!
I owned an 88 SHO and that 3.0 L Yamaha V6 was a beautiful engine, the car had a manual transmission to match the power. I was not impressed with the look or lack of umph for the $$
