Social Network Break is going excellent, Youtube Community Videos and Yakuza 3

Hey guys

Since my post I havent used Twitter in 5 days and its really good and Im kinda of glad to as well. I have been on a couple of twitter pages offline just to check on Game and Gaming deals which sort of breaks it but I havent left a tweet in that long so it still counts in my view.

Anyway I feel a lot more refreshed without Twitter, Dailybooth and Formspring at the moment as they arent the most important thing in the world. Real life and work have become more important at the moment. I may come back but at the moment will have to wait and see.

OK I did the video response to AaronCast86's question about I found the Youtube Community a few days early but I got it done.

Also a few other people have done responses to Aaron which is great to hear all the different stories.


Katrina aka Walllofweird


There are many other videos that talk about this which you can look at and there are loads of different stories on this topic and its great.

I may go and see NSG this week as I have been meaning to for a while since I last saw him in October for the launch of his DJ Hero in an exclusive showcase. I always love going to see NSG as one of the most amazing people I have ever met. Defintely good times.

I have decided to buy Yakuza 3 on the PS3 which is awesome because it looks a really fun game judging on what you can do and it has a different feel to other open world games like Grand Theft Auto.

Im excited to play this game, it has been out in Japan for a year and the fourth game came out in Japan a week after the third game was released over here in the UK. So im excited about that if it makes a release and if I like the third game.

Finally I have been watching Fantastic Mr Fox a lot lately on Blu-Ray and it is one of my favourite films ever.

OK time to end it

Taking Holidays from Social Network Sites, God Of War III and Another Response Coming

Hey guys

The other day I reached a decision that I may take a holiday from Twitter and Dailybooth. I will never use Formspring again.

The reason behind not using Twitter is maybe some of the negativity that I read from people its sad that people use it for anger issues on whether they want but oh well it just reached a point to me. The other reason is I dont have time to use it nowadays unless it is promoting my videos or someone else's videos because of living life and going to work whether it is Tescos or voluntary work. I agree it can be distracting having so many social network sites to keep up with and it is nice to get on with my own life.

With Dailybooth I cant think of any pictures that could be creative plus I havent taken a picture in over a week so it doesnt matter.

I finally got God Of War III which I got the ultimate trilogy edition boxset

I also did a review the other day to give my thoughts

I finally finished playing the game and I have to say WHOA on the ending and it is fantastic. Its one of those games I would go back to again and again like I said in the review. I picked up on the extra skins that I got with the edition I bought and they are all really cool. The bonus videos looking at behind the scenes of the game are really cool to watch to understand

I maybe doing another video response which is great because I miss doing normal vlogging on Youtube. Its another response to Aaroncast86 which I may upload either Sunday or early next week which I mentioned to him on Youtube.

Its about how you got into the Youtube community in the first place and I like this idea. I really want to get back into vlogging again because I have done a lot of videos on gaming which is still vlogging in some aspects but normal vlogging about life is something I want to get back into.

OK thats it for now. I hope to do a proper entry soon and take care.

Happenings from Barry's World 10/3/2010

Hey everyone

Its been a long time since I last did a blog entry talking about whats been going on with me I will say I tried a number of times to do a blog entries but because of whats been happening if it was something happening on the Internet or being busy with work, voluntary work and enjoying life.

I aint going to deny this but when DoctorBenjy decided to leave the Internet and Youtube I lost some confidence for a couple of weeks when it came to writing a blog. I felt that Benjy is a great person and someone that people are going to miss. I didnt wanted to reveal that until the time was right and I felt ok writing blogs again.

I havent written a proper blog since last year. I did a couple of entries showing videos I had done. One of them was the Goals for 2010. Here's an update on them goals.

The Three New Year Resolutions are

1) Do a Sport and get healthy - Sadly I havent found a sport yet to do
2) Do More Travelling - Been doing some travelling but to the same places that I usually go to
3) Be Happy and Positive - I have been positive and happy for a lot of the time like I said I had a couple of dark moments.

OK quickly sum up of the last couple of months

January - Well nothing much was happening just been enjoying real life and had a couple of dark moments wondering what to do. I went back to Portsmouth and thought it was cool.

February - Had a good birthday, went down to Brighton twice one on my birthday with family and the next day with my mate Arron and thats all I can remember.

I know it was really short hey oh well.

Spring is coming and I always love Spring. I prefer Spring to Summer and I prefer Winter to Summer as well. I never like the weather being too hot at all. I feel if the weather is hot I feel we are heading to armageddon (DONT ASK). The weather has been good with bright sun but cold air, bit too cold at times when I go walking my dog Ruby. Ruby is great if you are wondering, she is defintely the best dog I ever had, she is now a dog from the beginning of this month. She's just laying down while I am writing this.

I have bought a couple of big games over the last couple of weeks which are really good and I hope I will do reviews on them in the next couple of weeks.

Heavy Rain (Playstation 3)

Heavy Rain is a very addictive game that puts you on the edge of your seat and the presentation is brilliant. It does remind me of the Fahrenheit game I had on the original Xbox. Review for this will be coming.

Final Fantasy XIII (Playstation 3)

I had done an unboxing of the Final Fantasy XIII on yesterday when the game was finally released in Europe and America and I found it to be really cool to see what was inside the edition

I have played a bit through the game and it is a good game, not as good as Final Fantasy VII and X but still great to play.

There is one more game Im getting next week which I am really excited about and it is called.

God Of War III

God Of War storyline which I had done some research is brilliant and something I get a real thrill out of it. This next video is a spoiler for the first two God Of War games.

Im hoping to get this edition of God Of War III which I saw on the Playstation Blog

Its the ultimate trilogy edition that comes with a lot of shit

Once open, you will find the following items:

* God of War III (of course!)
* God of War Collection (gentle reminder, this is God of War and God of War II, remastered in HD, running at 60 fps, with Trophy support, all on one Blu-ray Disc)
* Extra game content downloadable via PlayStation Network:
* God of War Combat Arena containing an exclusive environment and seven challenges to complete
* Dominus character skin
* Apollo character skin
* Phantom of Chaos character skin
* Forgotten Warrior character skin
* Special audio bonus
* God of War Trilogy Soundtrack – God of War I, II, and III scores from the game (3 CDs in total)
* God of War: Blood and Metal EP – a heavy metal homage featuring original music inspired by God of War (downloadable via PSN)
* Additional content:
* Artbook
* Postcards

(According to the Playstation Blog) even though I have to fork out £100 but I know its going to be worth it.

Thats what is happening in my life and thoughts about games I have got and Im getting hold of soon

Speak Soon
