    • December? Already?....really?

      9 years ago

      CronoStrife

      As I type this, I'm at my work in a computer lab surrounded by female nursing students...it's a hard job sometimes but someone has to do it. Hard to believe it's the 2nd week of December already but amazingly it is. Even harder to believe is the fact I've been a member on this version of RT for over 5 years now...

      Anyway, it's been a while since my last journal (esp. since nothing ever seems to happen in my life) and I figured I'd recap what little has been going on.

      First, I still miss all you guys from PAX and can't wait until next year to meet up again. It was a helluva good time and I still think back on it and smile at all the fun we had. I've not been as active on here as I would have liked but I've been around. Grail and his journals keep me laughing just about every day and Kabetz' daily life is damn entertaining in itself, hehe.

      On the gaming side of things, I've somehow torn myself away from World of Warcraft enough to actually play, you know, other games. In the past 2 weeks I've completed about 5 games in their entirety and am currently working on reducing my unfinished stack even more. Of course with a new WoW patch looming this week we shall see what happens with that plan...

      Outside of gaming and the site, I've been actively seeking a new job, trying to get certified in various industry standards, and at one point pursuing 3 different relationships....that didn't work out so well but was to be expected. Ah well, I figure I'll find the right balance between my insanity and my flame's crazy...at least I can hope.

      That's about all I can think of that's actually somewhat interesting (and summarized to hell) right now, so I'll leave you to the rambling semi-wall of text. Oh right, there is one more thing...how much do I look like this dude? xD

      MV5BMjA0NjY3MTAzNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTY.jpg

      Someone said I looked just like him so...it's piqued my curiosity on what others think.

      Until the next time we meet...I love you all smiley8.gif

    • PAX 2009 Recap

      9 years ago

      CronoStrife

      It's been a week...and I'm still tired (but that's mainly due to the odd working schedule I have). After being reminded by L0gan that I've yet to do my quote journalin' unquote, here goes nothing. smiley8.gif

      I guess I should start out by giving a shoutout (do they still do that?) to everyone I met at PAX (random mixture of screenames and real names) including Hale, Earthlore (Will), Fiona, L0gan, Randy, Laird, AndyMatron, Jaime, Tom, Aprilfire, and Kabetz . I know I can't remember everyone, but those who I hung out with and met let me just say YOU ROCK! Seriously, I had one of the best times of my life at PAX 09 and you all made it worthwhile.

      What else can I say about PAX 2009 that hasn't already been said? It was awesome, I met a lot of great people (refer to above), and I had a lot of fun trying out games still in development. The panels were great (Roosterteeth, Destructoid, and LoadingReadyRun) and the dinner with everyone on Friday night at the Tap House was incredibly fun and eye-opening. You guys are all insane and I love you for it. (and didn't get any pictures of that night unfortunately) smiley2.gif

      Oh, and somehow I was completely immune to whatever flu/zombie virus that seemed to be breeding during the con and walked away with only a bit of jetlag. I don't know what happened, but I'm sure I'm gonna pay at some point...can you say zombie apocalypse?

      And now, PICTURE TIME!!!!! WOOOOO!!!(in no particular order)

      Holy crap, it's been over 2 years since my last journal? Seems I kind of fell off the planet for a while there....Well, I'm back. PAX 2009 reinvigorated me and I'm more excited for this site then I have been in quite a while. I'll do a longer journal later, but now I just want to show off a few friends of mine. :)

      *PLAYER 1 HAS RE-ENTERED THE GAME*

      I have survived my first car accident with some scratches and bruises. The good news, I apparently had an extra life and the other guy is just fine. The bad news, my car is totaled, I got a ticket for being at fault and the insurance rates shall now proceed to skyrocket...Good times! XD

      Anyway, just letting anyone who still reads my journals know I'm still alive and kicking...YOUR PUNY CARS CANNOT DEFEAT ME!!! MWHAHHAHAH!

      Well, guess it's time for me to look for another car. Later everybody!

      FOR THE FEW WHO ACTUALLY READ MY JOURNAL ANYMORE, I'VE COPIED THIS FROM L0GAN'S:

      Help The World’s Nicest Ninja: UPDATED!
      ==============================================================================
      ==============================================================================

      DAILY UPDATE WILL BE IN MY TITLE...
      Currently we have $240US Confirmed with another $60.00 US still to be processed
      Thank you to the very special people that are giving

      ==============================================================================
      ==============================================================================

      Hey Crew:

      So Charlie, Andymatron, Murrybob and a few others were in the Jes Kids World - Chat when Charlie made a great suggestion on how to right a wrong situation. It was such a great idea, I ran with it... please take the time and have a read.

      A great disturbance has happened in our network, one of our very own has had an item of his stolen/lost. Vance, known as Hale or the “Bus Ninja†traveled up to Vancouver British Columbia to attend CanWest. During the planning of the event, rumor was that we would be playing a mass LAN of Gears of War and Halo 3 Beta. So Vance brought his 360 on the bus up to Canada as he prepared for good times. In the end that event never happened, but in smaller groups we did play lots of games and have fun.

      Once the weekend was done, and many memories were had, all things were good and the “Bus Ninja†loaded onto his bus, and headed off for home. When he arrives back home, he looks for his bag, it is nowhere to be found. You can click here to read his journal His possessions, his clothes, and most notable his XBOX 360 is no longer in his hands. Somewhere, somehow his consol has been removed from the bus, and Greyhound will only cover a total of $250.00 per person, per total possessions.

      So here it is… I personally have a throwing star made from two twenty dollar bills, that Vance twisted together for me. I am personally donating this towards the “BUY BUSNINJA A NEW BOX FUNDâ€Â. I am not expecting you all to do this, but if you have a dollar, five dollars, more, less… I would love to see a donation come together for one of the greatest guys I feel this community has ever had the pleasure to know. He gives, gives and gives. He will most likely tell me to take this down, but I would ask if you cannot give, at least spread the word.

      Payment Information:
      PayPal Account
      canadianpride1976@gmail.com
      When you donate, please post in the message your profile name so I can inform Vance of all the people who donated, so he can thank you, as you all know he will.

      Vance, we love you and this is the least we can do.
      Your friendly neighborhood L0gan.

      Do all you can to help, whether it be a dollar or twenty! The Bus Ninja will be most appreciative!

      ...and so do I! :)

      Seeing as it's been quite a while since my last journal on here (people won't notice this one, no doubt) I figured I'd update all you guys and gals with what's happening in my life as of late.

      As of a little over a month ago, I became gainfully employed...as opposed to ungainfully employed, which I guess involves some type of servitude. Anyway, I finally conned my way into a job with MIS (basically the computer division of my local college), and now deal with annoying, obvious questions all day (hooray for tech support!). The pay, $10.98 an hour, is quite good for my age and experience (read none), and with a minimum of 4 hours a day Monday-Friday, I'm looking at close to a thousand dollars a month minimum. When that first paycheck arrives, it shall be most triumphant. smiley0.gif

      Speaking of most triumphant, Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars is a masterful return for the king of all real time strategy games. It plays beautifully, looks amazing, and who doesn't love the fact that it has Lando Calrissian, Number Six, Sawyer from Lost, the insanely beautiful Dr. Cameron from House, M.D, Boomer from Battlestar Galactica, Michael "Sam Fisher" Ironside, and Joe D. Kucan as the baldheaded madman Kane all hamming it up for the camera? I know I do, and if you search your geeked out hearts, you will find that you do as well. I've only been waiting since 1999's Tiberian Sun for another Tiberian series game...and the wait was well worth it. Make no mistake, this is a true return to the games of olde.

      In other gaming (and nongaming) news, I bought a 360 about 2 months back and am enjoying it quite a lot, what with Crackdown and Gears of War to keep me busy. The arcade is another fine addition to the gaming goodness, and I have already purchased Contra, TMNT 1989, and Doom(which my buddy Hale can't seem to find on his list). My gamertag's still CronoStrife, and if you ever see me online just drop me a message or invite. :)

      Oh yea, has anybody here ever turned 21? Now, did you feel different on your birthday? No? Neither did I. Odd, isn't it? I was expecting some huge event to occur and all that happened was I tasted some disgusting beer...which I shall never do again. XD

      Well, that just about sums up my life since the last time we chatted, thus...I shall bid you farewell. FOR THE BROTHERHOOD!

      I am currently typing this from my Wii console's beta version of the Opera browser. Why, you ask? Because I can, I suppose.

      It actually works a lot better then one would expect. smiley7.gif

      To give the few people who read this an idea of how bad a case of the Heroics I have, I've played the game for a total of 24 hours (I'm sitting right around 45 and a half hours total playtime) over the past two days....I just...kept playing and loving the game even more!

      I won't spoil anything for those like Hale and Pulsar, but I'll just say the story's definitely picked up at the point I forced myself to stop playing tonight. And the bosses....my god, I LOVE THEM. smiley0.gif They're all a joy to play, creative, and most seem to be multi-stage. I've not seen anything like it in other games.

      Comparing this game to Ocarina of Time...I'm not above calling this game better. It has everything Ocarina had and a fuckton more. It's a truly amazing accomplishment, and is made even better with the use of the Wii-mote/Nunchuk combo. The controls are so unbelievably good and intuitive, you'll wonder how you ever played a Zelda game without them. smiley8.gif

      If you've not played this game and have a Wii, RUN! RUNNNN!!! RUN!!! to the nearest store and buy it. You WILL NOT be dissapointed at any point with it. It is a masterpiece.

      END OF LINE.

      Yes folks, the price and release date have been announced. November the 19th, for a price of $249.99. Not as low as the majority of us were expecting, but more then worth it as you're essentially getting two (really like 5 or 6 with the Virtual Console) consoles in one. Seeing as I somehow forgot to buy a GameCube, this is even more of an incentive for my purchase in addition to the innovative controller. Ah yes, the controller... I can already tell the two of us shall become best friends.

      I can guarantee you I shall possess white Wii (that sounds a little obscene), as Nintendo is going to get it right...instead of cramming a thousand dollars worth of equipment into a console and selling it for 600 with no worthwhile games coming out for like a year (MGS4 and Halo 3 are all roughly a year away), they're focusing on the GAMES.

      It's a novel idea I know, but that's kind of why I got into gaming in the first place ALLL those years ago. ;) Not so I can get some fucking Blu-ray or HD-DVD player when I'm still perfectly fine with the current DVD format...or so I can get shiny graphics resulting in shitty gameplay and much longer development times.

      No, I'm in it for amazing gameplay, storylines, and an all around awesome gaming experience, all with graphics that are still fucking incredible in the right hands...I really do think the Big N will come out on top in the end. If you couldn't tell, I plan to have one on launch day, thus resulting in my grades sliding and the loss of much sleep. :D

      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      5. Now, heres the hard part! Pick only 1 of these wishes and as
      you scroll down focus and
      concentrate on it and think on nothing
      else but that wish.

      * *
      * *
      Now make one last &final wish about that one wish that you picked.
      After reading this, you have 1 hour to send it out to 15 people, and what
      you wished for will come true within in one week!
      u only get one chance!!!!! Now scroll down and think of your
      crush!!!
      Keep going down
      Keep going
      Keep going
      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Did you think of your crush? I hope so, that was
      your last chance. Now pay very close attention this important message!
      Sorry but once read, must be sent. Yes, this is one of those kinda chain
      letters that everyone hates. This one has been going since 1863 and if you
      break this chain, you will pay!!!!!! Remember that after hearing these
      stories.

      First Example:
      Take Barbra Wallace.. She was a pretty lucky girl,
      up till she got this same chain letter. She had a crush on the same kid
      since kindergarden. when she got this mail she didn\'t pay any attention to
      it. She just thought, no big deal. And deleted it. The next day her dad
      got fired and her mom dies in a car crash. If she would have sent the
      letter none of that would have happened and her mom would be alive.

      Second Example:
      Try Freddie D. Now Freddie D. was your average
      nerd. Had glasses, was short and chubby, was in gifted. All the signs of
      your total dork. He also received this letter and sent it to 51 people in
      the hour. Now, like Barbra, he had a crush on a girl since 3rd grade. The
      next day after sending the chain the girl confessed her love for him ever
      since 3rd grade. Freddie D. finally had the courage to ask her out, and of
      course, she had been waiting to yes to that for years. They grew up and
      married each other to live happily forever.

      Third Example:
      Now if you couldn\'t relate to the others, this\'ll
      get ya hooked. Listen to this. A kid named Jordan Johnson was just
      getting on AOL to check his mail. He was a quiet kid, not that popular but
      not a geek either. he was just normal. He saw he had mail from his
      friend. It was this exact letter. Now Jordan Johnsen was a smart kid and
      he knew what could happen if he didnt pass it on. He simply pulled a few
      friends from his buddy list and sent it along. The next day, about that
      same time, he got a phone call. It said he had won the lottery! then his
      dad came home and bought him a new bike! His mom bought him Nintendo64 and
      play station! His grandmother sent him a new computer, and his best friend
      gave him tickets to the concert he wanted to go to, Kid Rock and Limp
      Bizkit! Then he inherited a brand-new tv from his aunt! He was goin\' wild!
      the next day his secret crush asked him out, and they have been going out
      ever since.

      Now, you heard the stories. I know which person i\'d rather
      be, but thats up to you. I wouldn\'t wanna end up like Barbra but thats
      only me. We all want what we cant have but now\'s ur chance to go out with
      that special somebody ur waiting for. Take it or leave it. If you send
      this to-
      1 person- you will lose all luck in ur love
      life.....forever!!!!!
      10 people- your crush will say they like you as a
      friend......ONLY!!!!!
      15 people- your crush will say they like you
      20 people- your crush will ask you out!
      25 people- your crush will kiss you!!
      35 people or more- All of the above!!
      Don\'t blow it, it\'s ur chance to shine! Have
      everything u wanted, and more! Now, complaining cus u dont have any
      friends. Well theres an answer 4 everything. It\'s simple, just go in a
      chat room, pick some names and send away! but here\'s the catch.....you only
      have one hour to send it after being read. Please pass this to everyone u
      know and keep it going

      Thank you, kinda Sir! That is an outstanding Nintendo-ized logo of your name you have, as well. Not to mention your Deadpool animation is simply smashing! And might I commend the one whom may have thrown together such an excellent guild image.

      Yeah, he was built like a rock and knew just what to do in about every dangerous situation with animals. But there are some things you just can't predict sadly.

      My guess would be that they'll make a DVD out of the footage or possibly use it for the video of whatever song they choose... maybe both! Unfortunately, they didn't say what they'd do with the footage or I wasn't paying attention...
