    • Out to the movies...

      So, in the last week I've seen two movies in the theaters, which is more than I have over the last four months. I saw "Iron Man 2" on Friday and just saw "Kick Ass". Both theaters were showing the movies in 2X, the standard definition for film-based movies.

      Also, as a note, I got a kudos from one of the concession girls for my Left 4 Dead 2 "Dark Carnival" t-shirt. She also said she had one, too. Sadly, I did not have the courage to continue the conversation. I am a pussy.

    • Gamerz Update...

      If I could have actually formatted the title it would have been "Lamerz Gamerz Update...", but that is unimportant.

      After a long trip of looking at places to live and dropping off job applications and social networking I think it is time for a good rest. I did just buy two games that I have enjoyed previously: Left 4 Dead and BF Bad Company.

      I've played Left 4 Dead before, beaten most of the campaigns on both PC and 360, but now that I have the 360 version I can finally get all those remaining achievements that I am missing. I love this game, and will continue to play it until I get 100% of the achievements, but Left 4 Dead 2 does take some precedence since it is a newer and, I have to say, better game.

      I am also a huge fan of the Battlefield games, mainly of 2142 despite what Gus and the other members of the Drunk Tank have to say. BF2142 was designed to be a futuristic version of the standard BF1942: a huge multiplayer game with really no single player support. But Bad Company has a very engrossing story which is also fun. I will also admit that the first time I ever played BF Bad Company was this weekend at a friend's house and I loved it from the very moment I started to play the campaign. I can't wait to look at the achievement guides so I can get all the collectibles.

      But for now I will wait for my console to get shipped back to me from repairs. Fail.

    • Epic fail, Microsoft...

      So, I just got my "new" Xbox 360 from Microsoft because my last one red-ringed, and two days after I unbox it all hell breaks loose... figurative and literally. I did get to finish Dante's Inferno and get all but 6 achievements, problem is the damned console freezes up 90% of the time now. What the fuck, Microsoft? Now I have to send in my "new" console for warranty repairs because you sent me a defective console? I love your gaming platform better than the other evil, I don't even count the Wii as a competitor but you have to get your shit together. If you can send me a working console this time, you may be forgiven, but you have to send a card for like 2000 MP and not a one month gold subscription card. News flash, assholes, I resubscribe on a yearly basis, one month for free is like punching a child in the face; it doesn't help.

      My 360 red-ringed last night. Shipped it off today. It should be under the three-year warranty for red rings... thank the gaming gods.

  • About Me

    I've spent about 7-1/2 years in the US Army, 4-1/2 as a Combat Engineer (21B) and 3 years as an IT Specialist (25B) and it's been a love/hate relationship. I'll be going to school soon (blarg, a 25 y/o freshman?) for information assurance. I'm originally from Evanston, IL, but live in Normal, IL.

    I tend to play a varying group of games and consider myself an apprentice achievement hunter because I only have four games at 100% (including Avatar the Last Airbender and NBA 2K6, which I would normally never play).
