Waaagh

Last day off of the week for me and I was supposed to hang out with someone but they were sick. Was supposed to hang out with someone else but they were MIA. Sooo I ended up catching up on sleep which I slept way too much and felt like shit for the rest of the day lol. On a good note my Dawn of War II: Retribution Collectors Edition came today finally. Two days late mind you and I paid for overnight too. But alas it came and it isn't the most impressive CE I've seen but its pretty nice.


I would've taken some pictures myself but the only camera I have is on my phone and its laughable at best.

Anyways after I wasted the day sleeping I decided to waste the rest of it playing through the Ork campaign of the game. (I have 2 friends picking it up who love Space Marines and Chaos so I saved those campaigns for co-op) And I was surprised at the quality of the campaign. The levels while much much smaller in number (about 12 per race) are A LOT larger and at least have more purpose than simply "kill everything to the other side of map and kill a boss". I began playing the game around 5 pm and I must have beaten the Ork campaign at around 3 am lol (taking breaks, dinner and crap into consideration). So I'd say about 8 hours per campaign and 6 campaigns aren't too shabby at all. Unfortunately I've heard that all the races basically have very similar missions just different story. Which is disappointing but I haven't been able to look into that myself yet. All in all Its hard to say if I enjoyed this campaign more than the first games. I will say that I enjoyed the story much more and while Orks aren't my favorite race I enjoyed playing them which impresses me. I would say if you are a fan of Warhammer 40K or enjoyed at least the first game to look into this.

  2. You should complain and try to get a refund on your shipping cost assuming there weren't any natural disasters or government holidays involved.

  4. Not delivering in time is inexcusable but if it was me then I still would've done nothing.

    The game sounds interesting, too bad I don't have a PC that can run it.

  7. I've never even played part 1 of this series. I dunno how good or bad of a thing that is. I'm so out of touch with certain things. I've never played WH40k either.

  9. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
