      I'd like to start off by saying that I love Halo 2's way of telling its story. I like Halo's story, too, but it wasn't played out in a way that really makes you want to care. Halo 2 gives you more character depth around you, which I think helped to keep the story relevant and interesting.

      Of course, when I'm REALLY into it and cruising along through the game, it goes and bitch slaps me with the ending. Right as things were about to go ape shit, they go and give you a not so courteous fuck you.

      Of course, they intended to slap you with a cliffhanger, but it tends to be a double-edged sword. I find it suspenseful and will grow to like it as soon as I calm down, but right now I'm just venting. FUCK!

      That and I don't know with what purpose the people who reviewed this game moved through it, 'cause it didn't seem anywhere close to being around 13 hours when I finished. Then again, that was on normal, so I'll try hard next go through.

      These are some things that I've discovered while playing multiplayer Halo 2 at the apartment (not over Live):

      1. My friend Chris is to be feared when wielding an Energy Sword, for he seeks to master any melee weapon in any FPS. In the couple of hours we were able to play, he successfully managed to accumulate over 80% of his kills with the Energy Sword (sneak attacks and full frontal assaults).

      2. Where Chris is the master of the Energy Sword, I am the master of hijacking vehicles. My friends (especially Chris) have come to learn to keep their distance from me when piloting anything, seeing how I managed to make a few Hollywood-like jumps across big gaps to claim such vehicles. Maybe it's a stereotype...

      3. My other friend, Tyler, is part telepath. It seems that every time someone tries to go for them, he serves as a decoy for someone else. I have lost many lives chasing after him only to be raped from behind by my brother or Chris. This has never happened when I pursue the others.

      4. Shooting well does not immediately earn you victory. Throughout the night I consistently managed to shoot the most rounds (at least high 3-digit figures) with the highest accuracy (35% was my lowest) and still found myself to be 1st only a few times. The Energy Swords bring a new aspect to the killing field...

      And with that, I'm off to start up the single player campaign. I might sign up for Xbox Live with this nifty playing card that came with the game.

      EDIT: My will is weak, for I have signed up for Live already. Hit me up if you'd like: COOOOOOOON (with eight o's. It was real picky about my other names so I got desperate)

    • Damn you, Wizard World (and Microsoft)!

      Damn you to HELL! *coughs* Sorry, had to get that outta my system.

      Anyways, yesterday was the last day for Wizard World (for those who don't know, it's a big ass comic convention organized by Wizard Magazine) in Dallas, and my brother insisted that we go, so I wound up taking him. I thought it'd be an easy and quick early x-mas present. Okay, we get through the entrance and I'm already $40 out. Nice tickets, I know. I shrug it off, thinking that'll be the worse of it as we walk around, checking out all of the dealer tables. Suddenly my brother has a shit load of comics stacked in his hands (seriously could've been a foot at least). A cool $60 out of my pocket. Okay, no more for you! So we're walking, checking out the rest of the tables when *gasp!*, Street Fighter 1-6 in all of their covers!!! Being the Street Fighter semi-fan boy I am, and the fact that I like how Udon Comics draws made me start collecting them ever since I've known of the series' existance (around #7). And just in the span of two hours I managed to blow off close to $200.

      Wanna know the funniest thing? I have Halo 2 pre-ordered but no Xbox! Yeah, there was a Halo tournament waaaaay back (probably over a year ago) where the entry fee was to reserve Halo 2. I told myself, "It's only $5, and you can just cancel it afterwards, no problem." Sure I'd lose that $5 (it'd be store credit and I haven't bought anything from GameStop in forever, so it's just the same) but it's not that big of a loss. Fast forward to last Saturday, and watch as I remember that I still have that reservation and that I still don't have a Xbox. Now watch me go and pay off the reservation, and watch me go online to purchase a Xbox and a couple of controllers. $250 out of my account.

      I'm broke, nigga! I'm BROKE!

      I was holding off on buying a Xbox because there weren't that many games that were released that grabbed me by the balls and demanded my attention. Or at least enough that warranted me getting one. D'oh well, at least I can now host a new option at my friends' weekly multiplayer meetings. That and I can play Ninja Gaiden without my hall mates trying to kick me outta their rooms.

      The election's over and Bush stands the victor. As much as I don't like it, there's nothing more that I can do that I haven't already done (like voting). I just hope that this next four years goes by more smoothly than the previous.

      Anyways, I found this site a while ago but never thought to post it until now:
      http://www.theboywhocriediraq.com

      It's a very deep and interesting essay that everyone should read, Bush supporter or not. It has a slight slant to it, but it goes and backs up the claims with facts and relates it to certain instances in history. Of course, if you can't read it with an open mind, you won't walk away with much.

      On another, a little more amusing note, here's a site that expresses the (large) minority's feelings to the rest of the world.

    • Officially amused

      Yesterday I went and rescued my mom from work to take her out for lunch (since it was before I had to go to work myself and haven't had anything to eat). As the meal came to an end and the waitress came to clear the table, she asked if we wanted separate checks. I got a good laugh outta that, seeing how people would be stupid enough to mistaken us for going out. Well, I guess with the whole aspect that she's white and is pretty young looking for going on 40; you wouldn't really be able to make the mother/son connection. My mom commented about how she didn't know whether to be insulted or amused.

      ...I'd be doing you all wrong on my desk right now.

      Stupid programming assignments. Instructor rapes us two days a week with a horde of program assignments. Not that they're hard, mind you. It's just that there's so many and every now and then fatigue likes to step in and fuck with your coding. To top it off, the instructor is really anal about us commenting our program. I don't really like comments in the first place; I tend to keep my coding pretty clean and organized in the first place.

      That's enough of my bitching for one night, though. Take it e-z.

      Last year, a couple of friends and I were waiting for the bus late night after a movie when we were trying to figure out how we'd pay the fare. One of 'em (the other guy with a 'fro) suggested that we pimp ourselves for money. So there we were, two black, 'fro stylin guys and one scrawny, white-looking half-mexican trying to pimp ourselves at a shady bus stop in the middle of a light snow fall. We found out that those aren't the prime conditions for pimping yourself and that we weren't the most trust-worthy or attractive people to pimp ourselves off in the first place, seeing how most of our potential clients feared we were muggers...

    • 21st

      A good friend of mine is turning 21 this Wednesday. His dad's taking him out drinking Friday and Saturday, so he's gonna have the actual party on Wednesday. Nevermind I still have work and school the day after, I can hack an uber late night, or if worse comes to worse, I'll just not go to sleep 'till after work. Chalk that one as all nighter #16 (fuckin programming assignments...). Had no idea what to get him for his b-day, so I wound up paying for a reservation of Half-Life 2, so he can just go and pick it up whenever it comes out (the 16th, I believe).

      I went and voted Friday. Took me about 45 minutes to get to the registration desk. I can only imagine how busy it'll be on Election Day...

      Not even the end of the year and I'm already gearing up for A-Kon (anime convention here in Dallas). Nevermind it's in June; I figured that I'd spend a little time here and there to cook up a cosplay costume, seeing how I always have something to do during Halloween that's not Halloween-related (work, homework, carting brother around). Last year I had to throw something together a couple of days before, and I'd like to avoid that nightmare...

    • Octopus is chewy

      14 years ago

      Black_Man

      Delicious, but chewy. I was at the local sushi bar again and wanted to explore my other options; so sue me. Seems like I'd explored a little too much, seeing how I managed to run a $30 tab. Never, EVER, order on an empty stomach. My friend compared me to Onizuka (G.T.O.) and the scene where he wound up ordering a shit load of sushi and ran out of the bar and into the middle of the street to get hit by a car so they'd wind up paying the bill. The fact that the sushi bar is right next to Main St had me brainstorming for a moment...

      It's all good, though. The chef there kicks major ass! He's a middle-age Japanese guy, so you wouldn't think much of him. When you start to become the only regulars like myself and my other loser friend, though, he starts to loosen up. Not only will he give you shitloads of free sashimi samples, but he'll tell you about his crazy stories about him playing the guitar, waking up and pissing off his neighbors, express his love for Hooters, and even insult you or your friend(s) if the opening's there. With this kind of atmosphere, I don't mind the $30, but I'll be more mindful in the future. I'm too broke to keep up that kind of eating habit.

      What are you talking about? When you screamed "Black Rage!" I almost pissed myself.
      God that was a fun movie, the only thing that blighted the experience, was the theater I was a projectionist at when we got Chasing Amy, about a 1/4 of a mile away is a retirement community named "Leisure Village" oh you can only guess at what us locals have dubbed it, anyway when we got Chasing all there 60-90 year olds came out in droves to see it......why you ask........go on I'll wait..........good. I'll tell you why, because of the poster, all they knew about it was that there were some nice boys who were "Chasing Amy" so obviously that made it a sappy love story, no we would warn them at the box office that this was not a movie they would want to see, no they would tell us.....it looks adorable.....and behold in less time than it takes to have a pizza delivered to your door......angry old people demanding there money back and lambbasting.....(whene was the last time you saw that word?) us for even showing it in the theater. Ahh the sheer joy of it all.

      Sir, may I add my voice to those who stand with you on this delicate subject. Understanding is the key to all things. Now before I get to comfy on my soap box, i would like to close with this thought, that you can find examples of racial brotherhood in most everything, even the most Holy Trilogy (As long as Lucas isn't mucking about with it.) for we see Billy D Williams play a charming, dashing, cleaver rouge named Lando Calrissian, and it's not like they were going for some tawdry "Mandingo" love angle with him and Leia.....oh.....wait......wanevermind. So in closing I would just like to ask one thing..........Whats a Nubian?

      Anyways, Black_man and I use to be rookie cops in the streets of Wyoming. Then we realized we were police-ing a grand total 15 people that are in that state, so we went on to control better and bigger things. Those said "better things" never came our way, though.
