      Monday i flew to LA to film for a new SpikeTV show called Gamehead that actually looks like it could turn into a legitimate show. Their host knows his shit.

      Tuesday i was back in SF to attend an Xbox360 preview event. They gave me a memory card, and I got to play a bunch of the 360 games (i staked out Oblivion and played with sliders for hours. literally).

      I just managed to get 2 really long days of work in, trying to cram a week in the few days I have.

      Tomorrow I fly BACK to LA for the weekend for MLG LA, which is actually in Costa Mesa, not LA. Go figure.

      Next weekend I go to LA AGAIN for IGN Live.

      And during it all is Clan Wars.

      I bought Black & White 2. But will I ever get to play it? :( Sometimes I wonder.

      hey! you! Is anyone out there reading this a super good Rainbow player? I'm recruiting for a promotional thing the frag dolls are doing for rainbow six lockdown. We're recruiting the best players we can find and drafting them into teams. the teams will then fight it out for a prize (and publicity for their home clans). it just occured to me that this is a sensible place to let you ladies and gentlemen know about it.

      if you think you're good, go here

    • level 10

      I remember when i first started playing halo 2. i thought if i could just get to level 10 i'd have proven my ability. i would be able to classify myself as "reasonably good" instead of "noobie on a stick."

      I stopped playing in January because I got wrapped up in Splinter Cell again. Since I'd just barely reached the "reasonably good" mark I didn't get to enjoy it much. I reminded myself I was never great at it, that i was better at other games. All that.

      I just started playing again for Frag Doll Friday. I remembered I sometimes enjoy the frenetic pace and the "kshwah" of the sword. I also learned that all those skills I had fought so hard for had drained away somehow. I just knew that I was not as good -- even though we were playing unranked games, I could tell. It was in the feel of it. I didn't feel as locked onto heads, and i didn't react to crazy situations with any cool thought or strategy.

      Today I decided to play some ranking and see where I stand. In Doubleteam with a friend who was also just starting to rank in Doubleteam, it took me 17 matches to get to level 10, 11 of which we won. So here I am, at my "reasonably good" marker, double digits and everything, and I realize that the game has changed. Now level 10 is like level 5. I need to get to 15 at the very least, probably 20 before I can pat myself on the back. GOD DAMMIT.

      The first Frag Doll Friday is over with. We played 200 out of the 1200 gamers who signed up to take us on. It was a lot of fun to just goof off on bizarre game modes with everyone. Next month is Ghost Recon 2: Summit Strike, and I doubt I'll be any better at that than I was at Halo. Splinter Cell is ruining me for other games!

      man, my feet hurt. i'm back from summerfest in milwaukee. 4 days of a music festival, and what better way to spend that time than in a tent playing video games? whee! I got to meet and tease zyos, who's pretty damn good at halo. i wanted to smack him around in splinter cell, but unfortunately didn't get the chance. oh well.

      I've just adopted 2 new kittens. I was just supposed to kitten-sit, but they decided to keep me. Yay!
      I'm thinking of naming the boy kitten caboose.
