      Hey all, just thought I'd do another journal. Mostly just some photos and such of minecraft. I've become quite addicted to this game. I mean give me a game that allows me to do really almost anything and build whatever I want, then you've sold me all ready. Also, it being PC/MAC, there are tons and tons of amazing mods out there, that really just add to the game. As for myself, I have a zelda texture pack, and it's amazing.

      Oh, another thing, there is this pretty sweet site that allows you to make your own skins. I made myself. =P
      If any of you all have it, let me know. At the moment I'm working on making my own private server, so if you'd like I'll give you the IP and password so you may play on it as well. Once I get the bloody thing to work that is. smiley6.gif

      Other than that, how's everyone else doing?

      Personally, I've been playing a shit ton of Black Ops, also, just bought a addictive game called Minecraft... and fuck, it's so life sucking... smiley6.gif Anyone else playing Minecraft? If so, let me know and I'll get an IP up so we can build stuff together. Like legos, but on a PC. smiley6.gif

      Did it... beat Mass Effect 2 in my first play on the insanity difficulty, did the impossible and got my entire team out alive, and so on. Got all the achievements in one play through, except for 2 minor ones I'll get with my second play through.
      An amazing sequel, now I guess it's time for the Reapers to hit everything hard in Mass Effect 3. I'm ready for it and can't wait to finish this amazing trilogy off. smiley12.gif Such a emotional ride Mass Effect 2 was, one secne almost had me in tears. So to not spoil it for those out there that haven't beaten the game, I'll highlight this next bit in white, so just DON'T HIGHLIGHT IF YOU DON'T WANT ANYTHING SPOILED ABOUT MASS EFFECT 2!

      *The part(s) that got me almost in tears were well one, when the reapers invade the normandy and you see the crew being taking away while they scream and fight for their lives from the collectors as you're playing Joker. Such a emotional thing for me, dunno why. But I put alot of time and listing to the crew speak and such, sounds weird I'm sure, but I was attached to the crew, so to see them all screaming and such and not being able to help them, it hit something with me. Second, was the romance scene, I choose to not remain faithful, as some people have been calling the choice on other forums like the MAss Effect form with my love interest in Mass Effect 1, which was Ashley. After the whole thing on Horizon, and she just jumps down my throat, not even trying to understand and just turns her back on my Shepard, it honestly pissed me off. smiley6.gif So after hours of getting to know the new crew and one of the old members, Tali, I found out that she does want something more than friendship, which I didn't think was possible, being how anything physical would most likely make her ill from having no immune system from living on the flortila for so long. Anyways, the moment when the love scene happens, it was just quite adorable with her being so nervious. That didn't make me tear up, but I found it to be very cute and just really made me feel something from a game.

      Another thing that stuck to, was the ending, just the last bit of "fuck you Illusive Man!", being a Paragon shepard, I don't agree with Cerebus, but I saw working with 'em did make the most sense, but now that the Collectors are beaten, I'm glad they gave me an opition to tell the Illusive Man to piss off. I'm also curious since I didn't remain 'faithful' to ashley, I wonder if she and Liara/kaiden (for those that kept him alive in ME1) will make a return as part members. If they do, and your new love interest, if you have one, will be apart of the squad in Mass Effect 3, I wonder if they'll be any tense moments for choosing to move on and not wait for ashley/kaiden to come back to you. Well, have to see I suppose.
      * Well there are the reasons that made me feel high emotions during my playthrough in ME2.

      I must say, in my own little review. This game has done an amazing job. I was alittle worried that the changes would ruin it, but it is far from the truth. Bioware did the right thing in my eyes with changing the combat, exploration, dialog, just something as simple as the way they present the game with choices. The comabt is amazing first of all, takes just alittle getting use to... especially if you spent the last 24 hours replaying the first mass effect before the launch of the second game a meer day away... then to all the sudden have to forget the old combat system and learn a new one... *cough*... But once you get the hang of it, it's fun, exciting, and very action packed. I loved the first Mass Effect, but after reading the first book before playing ME1, I was slightly disapointed... the combat in the book was so much more fast paced and intense from just the read, ME1 combat just seem to move, shoot, heal... wasn't hetic or intesne as the books protrayed it to be like. But with ME2, I feel like it is everything I was hoping for, challenging and exciting at the same time. Love it.

      A HUGE problem with ME1 was the texture misshaps that plauged the game... but thankfully Bioware has fixed this and now cinematic moments aren't bogged down with shitty texture issues and it feels very in the moment and you can get sucked into it. That being said, there are a few texture misshaps here and there, but very minor compared to ME1, so it shouldn't take away from the feel or the special moments in ME2. Also with the add of the Renegade/Paragon interuptions, you need to stay on your toes incase a party memebers trys to shoot someone, or maybe you just feel like punching a really fucking annoying reporter in the damn face as she's talking... <_<.... >_>.... One thing a friend of mine brought up about ME1 was the terrible music, he said everytime he heard the music in ME1 he wanted to slit his wrist... I can happly say they'll be no wrist slitting in ME2, the music is fucking fantastic, from the clubs, to combat, to just random exploration music, it is all right where it should be and plays out amazingly. I'll be buying the soundtrack for sure. ^_^

      Then there is of course the voice overs... amazing work on all the actors... Martin Sheen as the Illusive Man was such an amazing pick, I couldn't think of anyone better suited for the job than him. All the preformances were top notch, and just truely amazing. I've grown attach to rendered polygons... kinda sad, but I don't mind. =P
      illusive_man-01-p.jpg

      For Mass Effect 2, I have to give it a 10 out of 10. Didn't dissapoint me and I'm looking to finishing this trilogy . Also for news on the next Mass Effect book, the third book is to be due July 27th, 2010. YAY!

      retribution-o.jpg

      Anyways, sorry for such a long read, I don't expect anyone to go through that, I just had all this excitment and had to share all of it as much as possible. But for anyone whom has beat it, please let me know what you think, I'd love to talk about it with other

      You're engaged?!

      That's amazing! congratulations buddy! smiley0.gif you know what's funny? a few or two back if you would have told me that one of my friends was with someone for little over a year and a half I would be pretty hesitant about them getting married, but personal experience now has taught me that sometimes, when you know, you just know. So my biggest congrats to you, I wish you two a lifetime of happiness! and the wedding date is set and everything, isn't it? that's amazing! smiley0.gif

      And how do you like your job?

      As for me, I'm good! I'm still working at Best Buy, got my friend Marb a job there recently, I stopped going to my Shou Shu classes, which was disappointing but my now boyfriend stopped going at the time and I was nervous to do it alone. Not to mention I was mostly going for the awesome exercise and it was just a blast, but the place was going through some changes, nerves were high and everyone was really grumpy and strict and it just wasn't worth going to anymore when I started noticing I was always nervous/anxious right before it and at times, during it. So I stopped going, planning on joining a gym instead next month.

      Apart from that... I think that's just about everything, making some future plans, which is exciting since I haven't really planned much in life up to this point but I'm excited smiley1.gif Oh, and lastly, a new pet Ball Python Snake named Winnie, who is little viscous with prey, adorable, chill and likes to watch video games. smiley8.gif

    • ElunaNuv

      9 years ago

      Waaahhaaha. Yes, I guess I do. I am so excited I pre-ordered the collectors edition too. But I probably wont be able to play it for a while. I am way too busy with school >.<

    • asianSmirk

      9 years ago

      Yep, it's been good talking to you too. Have a good time at work && scraping off your car. I don't think it snowed that much last night over here, yet school was canceled for me today...probably some ice formed on the roads or something, though one of my friends told me that he drove to school and didn't think the roads were bad at all. Like, we get pretty harsh winter roads here in IN sometimes. ::

      It's now the norm for me to be busy. I don't think I would be complete if I had a bunch of time on my hands...even though that would be really really nice. I would probably fill my time w/something fun or intellectually-engaging anyway. Oh but you have a job. You've beat me w/ that. ::
      Haha, it will be a LONG time if I do make it to become some kind of physician...don't know what kind of area I want to specialize in yet though. If you ever needed my service down the road, I'd definitely help you out! ::
      Awwww, Brandon! That's great that you've found such a compatible girl for yourself. ::
      When it comes to little things, I can go with the flow, in fact I prefer it...but for "life decisions" (for lack of a better phrase) I don't think I could just wing it. I'm the type of person who has to have plans && order to some things.

    • asianSmirk

      9 years ago

      Thanks for the confidence, but there are a lot of smarter students out there applying to the same places. All will be well though. ::
      What else have I been up to...well outside of school && applying to colleges, I've been busy with my extracurriculars. For example, my partner and I received first place at a districts competition for this thing called DECA for marketing students (even though you don't have to be a marketing student). Now we're switching gears and writing a paper for the State competition. :: I've been doing stuff for my other extracurricular activities too since I am on the board of two other groups...then there are the others that I'm just a member of. :: I've been volunteering as usual, nothing new there. :: Last semester was awesome (but busy) since I had an internship w/ a Gastroenterologist. I saw a lot of things that reassured me that I would love to be a medical doctor. ::

      Deciding to join the Marines would be a big decision, for sure. Is the only reason why you'd come to Indiana this "woman" you speak of?

    • asianSmirk

      9 years ago

      Thanks, I've actually been already accepted to IU-Bloomington and Purdue U, which I applied to a long time ago, hence why I already know I'm accepted. but the other six schools that I applied to were under Regular decision (recent) so I'm still waiting to hear about them. Regardless, I'm probably going to pick on a basis of which school gives me the best financial package :~/ ::

      Well if you like the cold, Indiana is for you. haha I actually like it here, it's just the winters annoy me. but really it's nice here, or at least where I live. I just hope to possibly move around when I go to college.

    • asianSmirk

      9 years ago

      So you are doing well. It's ironic that you almost have your car paid off while my car was totaled about a month ago (I wasn't even driving when it happened sheesh. My dad was driving && this other guy who doesn't know how to drive ran into my dad and MY car ugh). Oh well, I'm glad no one got hurt, plus I'll probably have some transportation eventually. ::
      I'm doing alright...stressing out about school-related things as usual. I'm in that "wait for all my colleges to respond to my application" stage. ::
      Why the heck would you move to IN?!?! (where I live now, haha) trust me you don't want to live here

      When are you moving there again? Sometime next year right? Roommate? Why am I asking so many questions?


      Heh. Anyways, being able to see hang out with you even if it's for an hour would be awesome. Epic, even.


      As for the games, that's tricky. You have Modern Warfare 2 which although has a campaign, the real replayability is in it's multiplayer. Left 4 Dead 2 is sure to be awesome, given that you have friends to play it with, that'll never get old. Then you have Assassin's Creed 2 which seems like it's going to be so much better than the first. I suppose it comes down to the options really. I myself don't think I could choose either.

      At least we have Mass Effect 2 in January smiley0.gif

      And is that the northern part or southern part of indiana?

    • samson790

      9 years ago

      That part of the game is crazy hard, no doubt, it took me so long to get through, when you hold off near the ferris wheel, something that worked for me was waiting till the enemies spawned in the buildings (doors open up) and kill them, then camp out at the end of the hall way they just spawned in, chuck nades, set up explosives, that's what got me through it. Then the mile high club achievement for the prologue.......oh dear, hours on end to complete that, about a minutes worth of gameplay. Good luck sir!

      And aww, yay for you! what part of Indiana exactly? And I know people who've met through means such as halo 2, and four years later, they're living together and married =D. So good luck man!

    • samson790

      9 years ago

      I'm good as well sir. I have class five days a week this semester and work as well, so I don't get as much time to sit down and game (cant wait for christmas break) but lately I've been playing Call of Duty 4, to get ready for modern warfare 2 and because I don't see me playing it too much after the sequel is released. I've also been doing a good amount of mass effect! Unfortunately, I put that game off for far too long, that and I need to take care of all of fall out 3, on top of all the expansions. Jeesh, it's going to be a while O_o. Indiana ya say? What are ya planning to do out here on the east coast? =P

      Ha! Yeah, I loved his reaction to that picture, especially at the end. "You fucked your own ass!" I'm still laughing about that.
