Introduction- Assignment 1

Hello All,

My name is Luis Pacheco and I’m a junior sociology major/linguistics minor at the University of Mary Washington.  As you can tell from my avatar/webpage, I am a huge fan of video games in general.  I find them to be entertaining, interactive, and overall great experiences.  On my blog, I plan on having a video game related theme going on.  Everything from reviews, soundtracks, new releases, etc.  Besides from that, I am also a huge fan of sports, mostly football, soccer, and tennis.  I play tennis and am actually a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, which I practiced for 8 years.

The other day I purchased a new video game, Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii.  Everything in this game is extremely nostalgic from the level design, music, and gameplay.  The difficulty is rather high, which I like because it makes it challenging.  The atmosphere is amazing and I think it has one of the greatest soundtracks seen yet on a Wii game.

The past week I made it to the final boss (which is not too creative), and it took me a while to defeat him.  You need to hit his weak points a total of 7 times, but I kept on dying after hiting him 6 times.  Of course this was quite frustrating, but after about 5 hours of continuous attempts, I finally beat the game.  Overall, the game was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend it to any Wii owners out there.

Thats about it for my 1st post and I look forward to posting more things in the future.

  1. Glad to see you up and running here. And excited you are into video games, this should be fun. As for nostalgic video games, my favorite kind, I grew up playing video games when Pacman and Donkey were still stand-up coin-op machines. Talk about nostalgia.
