Today we played a new demo on the PS3 called Army of 2: 40th day. It made me want to play Gears of War. The third person perspective is easier for me.
Games are expensive and we do not buy every highly anticipated game. Admittedly, we do buy a lot of games but cannot afford as many as we would like. One way to break up the monotony of playing 100 days and not break the bank is demos. They are free and it gives us a chance to try something new. If we like it then we can go out and buy it and if we hate it, we go back and play one of our other games.
They Army of 2 demo must be played as co-op. This means that John had to either coordinate his schedule with Rocky or play with me. Since Rocky has a full dancecard I got to play with John tonight. The only downside to trying out this demo was that John has never played the Army of 2. Today we both went in blind.
We have our own little intermission sessions. I am blogging while John picks our guns. They even have an option for diamond incrusted grenades but I passed on that particular choice. He did style all of our guns to match with camo and changed the stock. John was almost giddy that you can customize your gun to be hideous and felt he should test the possibilities.
I am not sure how far we made it into the demo but we killed a lot of people. We saved a couple innocents but mostly we just shot a ton of bad guys and watched buildings get blown up. One of my favorite parts of the demo was controlling a turret; before today I was not clear on what a turret was but for me it is best described as a metal people mover with a really big machine gun attached.
John and I spent a lot of time apart today. I went to church and then to help pack for the big move and John stayed home to finish up Christmas gifts. Tonight, like most days is the first time we get to spend time together (grown-up time that is.) I realized that we have been playing footsie this entire hour.
Today I am thankful to have someone to play co-op demos with and to keep my feet warm.
