Wasssssup peeps right we're in week 3 of checking out the "best bits" from our celeb bloggers over the year.

Last week we checked out Aggro's weird post check it here if you missed it). This week its time to jump back to the month of August were we had Aggro Santos as our celeb blogger, have another look at Aggro Santos' first post on his gaming habits.

This weeks its all about that cheeky chappy singer Ne-yo, he was one of the celebs that passed through on our blog this year to expresss his love of gaming. Gotta say he really suprised with his depth of knowledge and passion for gaming, (trust me his posts were like essays!!) Interesting.... but wow did he go in!!

He's a little reminder of the first post his did back in October.

The Worst Game I've Ever Played:

The worst game I've ever played... well honestly I don't know if it was a bad game or if it was just a bad experience with this particular game. Everybody knows who Sonic The Hedgehog is? Ok, well there was a young lady who wanted to get in on the gaming with me. You know I sit there and play video games and she'd be sitting there kinda feeling left out so I got a game that the two of us could play together - it's like a Sonic tennis type deal. It's like all the characters from Sonic The Hedgehog and they play tennis. I'm sitting with her and I'm trying to play this game with her and trying to explain to her how to play the game as we're trying to play the game - it's not a very difficult game but it's not a very fun game either. It was very monotonous and very boring and it just wound up being a completely disastrous evening...

"I'm pushing the button and it's not working, well you didn't explain it, you're cheating". It just became that whole thing. It was really really really really depressing and it made me want to throw the controller, not so much at her, but throw it. Yeh, that's the worst game I've ever played.

THE WORST GAME YOU'VE EVER PLAYED:

cod2.jpg

It's 'Call Of Duty' I know I'm gonna get a lot of haters for that one, but I just never really got the point of it, it's just too technical with too many missions, trying to find out this and unlocking that, hitting down this person ... phew!!!

I just like simple games like racing, football, boxing. The point of these games are straight forward you know what you're doing, I don't like beating my brains over something again & again for days in a row, which is why I think Call Of Duty is officially the worst games I have ever played.

THE LONGEST TIME I'VE EVER PLAYED A GAME:
tomb_raider.jpg

I remember when I was younger I loved playing Tomb Raider. I played it constantly for a whole month until I clocked it. Another game I clocked was the 1st pokemon on the Nintendo Gameboy, I clocked the red one, the blue one I think there was a silver & gold one didn't clock it though, but those were the games I played the longest.

MY MOST EMBARRASING DEFEAT:

tekken.jpg

This was when I played Tekken, a young child who was probably maybe 12 or 13 beat me, and all I saw a 'PERFECT' on the screen ... lol .. I didn't get 1 hit in.. Oh well..

tekken_perfect.jpg

PERSON I'D MOST LIKE TO PLAY:

Ok right, actually if I really thought about this, I would probably like to play ANYONE in the entire Urban scene at Pro Evo. I always see people ( Not naming any names) on their blog, twitter or facebook page bragging about 'Pro Evolution Soccer' talking about their the Pro kings & blah blah blah ... I don't even want to talk I just want to bring the action on... Give me anyone on Pro - Pro 10... Lets go..Anyone... open invite ..

So there you go this is what's happening in my gaming world this week, this is a wrap for my blogging with Rampage.

What do you want for Xmas? Well it aint Monopoly is it.....

Treble T | 10:02 UK time, Thursday, 2 December 2010

A newspaper recently published a survey of youngsters recently came up with the result that the 3 most wanted things for Xmas are no longer Monopoly or Connect 4 but an iPhone 4 an iTouch and an iPad.

Approximately 39% children questioned wanted Apple gadgets this year, with 17% of five to eight- year-olds, 50% of nine to 12-year-olds and 66% of 13 to 16-year-olds all putting Apple items at the top of their lists.

DAMN what happened to Ken and Barbie?? Xmas is getting very expensive. What are you presents are you looking to get for your family ? Would you consider any of these? Maybe an Xbox Kinect? 3D tv perhaps?

Leave a comment and let us know what your looking for as a present this festive season and does it cost the earth?
