      My school is only 6 hours from Toronto. I think I'll be taking a trip this summer.

      I got the best letter ever in the mail today. I was accepted to Kuyper College for their January 2010 semester. I'm going to college. Finally. When I signed up for RvB over 5 years ago, I was still in high school. And now I'm leaving after New Years' to go to school again.

      I'm starting the first semester on a type of academic probation...kind of. I'm limited to only three classes the first semester. It's because my high school GPA was terribad. My ACT score kicked huge butt, so that helped.

      So...I'm moving to Grand Rapids, Michigan like the first week of January.

      Now how does one apply for jobs in a city they doesn't live in yet?

      I am an idiot and I got my xbox 360 banned from the Live service. I'm not upset, because I did break their terms of service. I'm going to buy a new one someday.

      In other news, Borderlands is still the coolest game. I have a level 40 hunter (sniper class), a level 37 soldier (combat rifle class), and a level 30 soldier (machine gunner class). I think I want to try the siren next.

      I originally tried playing the soldier with all of the skills dumped into the turret...but I do way more damage by dumping all of my points into the combat rifle skills.

      Left 4 Dead 2 is a riot. I would like the full version now, thanks.

      =EDIT=
      I hacked my xbox so I could play burned games. It was wonderful until they finally caught me.

    • Borderlands:

      The best game you've never played.

      This game is the most fun I have had with a game since Left 4 Dead came out. It is completely addictive. The best way I can describe it is a twisted combination of World of Warcraft and Fallout 3. The environment is very Fallout-esque, but the simple leveling and skillpoints is very WoW. You start as one of four characters, the melee brute, the soldier/engineer, the sniper/gunslinger, and the psychic/stealth girl. Each character has a skill tree that branches into three specifications, allowing you to further craft your gameplay. Each type of weapon has it's own proficiency so the more you use a type of gun, the better you get with them. All on top of this is a very easy level system. If I'm level 8 and I see a few level 11 guys...I should leave them the hell alone. But if they are only level 5, I could totally waste them.

      So I got it for 360 and beat it in a few days, playing as the sniper. It was so terribly fun. I even dropped my jaw at a few of the boss fights....kind of a OHMYGODWHATISITANDHOWDOIKILLIT type of way. I finally finished the game at level 36. Here's one of the cool parts. You have the option of starting over with your character and all of the environment levels relative to you. This allows you to get to the level 50 level cap.

      That brings us the the REAL reason you want to get to 50. The guns. The team at gearbox decided to go all out crazy with guns. In some modern shooters, they have upwards of about 40 guns or so to use. Borderlands has over THREE MILLION possible guns. They used a new procedural system to auto-generate guns at random. There are so many gun possibilities...

      A double barreled shotgun that shoots lighting bullets? Check.
      A 6-shot magnum with a 3x scope? Check.
      A machine gun that ignites people on fire? Check.

      It's crazy.

      I just got it for PC today and I've been co-oping with a friend. I'm up to level 19 on the soldier. Basically, I run into the fight, throw down a turret, and hide somewhere while it eats everything.

      You need this game. You need to get it. You need to co-op with me. You need to enjoy it so very much. It is seriously hilarious.

      Buy it.

    • Countertop Arcade Machine!

      9 years ago

      DarkJedi375

      So my friend and I stumbled on something about 2 weeks ago online. Some guy decided to build his own countertop arcade machine. Now his was strictly a NES emulator. I loved the look and the idea so I decided I wanted to go one step further. I wanted to make a home arcade machine, capable of MAME and NES and SNES and Genesis and possibly more.

      After about 4 hours of discussion and planning, we finally got a solid plan together. I had a spare 15" LCD and computer to use, now we needed to plan the cabinet.

      We eventually decided trying to fit two arcade controls in front of a 15" LCD was too awkward. That's when we came up with the final design.

      I made a 3D mock-up in Google SketchUp:
      9526_1159995996894_1137600105_30573677_8

      Basically, it's going to have 1 computer inside with 2 monitors set to clone view. Each player sits across a table from each other and can play 1 or 2 player games.

      So we started building this weekend......
      We didn't get as far as I wanted to but it ended up being a bit more difficult than I anticipated. Check it out!

      We built the base frame and added the floor of the unit.
      9526_1166474558854_1137600105_30591444_4

      We got the monitors mounted into the proper positioning.
      9526_1166474878862_1137600105_30591452_6

      And this is how far we got at the end of the weekend.
      9526_1166475038866_1137600105_30591456_3

      So what do you think so far?

      Just kidding. Nothing has changed (except for my profile picture). At least you stopped to read this because of the SHOCKING TITLE. I'm still loving life and all that comes with it. Still trying to figure out the master plan that lies in front of me.

      How are you today? On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being abysmal and 10 being miraculous.

      Oh, you're feeling (number)? Why is that?

    • Maybe someday...

      I'll post a journal that's more than a topic and one or two sentences.

      What the heck, you guys still hang out here? I don't even know who you are anymore. You should chat me up somewhere sometime. Skype. MSN. AIM. Twitter. Facebook. It's not like you don't know how to find me.

      Play with us then! It will be a wicked awesome time. =) I'm going to have people over tonight and may or may not be online. But if we are and you see us on at anytime join us. =D I usually don't look to see who is online at all, and that's why I don't ask anyone to play with me... I'll change that though and keep an eye out for when you are on.

      Yeah, it's pretty much the only anime-type anything I will ever ever like. I think I first saw it when I was 4, but I watched it often for a very long time. My babysitter had it. I really need to purchase it. It's just so HAPPY! Other than the dust bunnies....I HATED the dust bunnies.

      what you should do is take them out right before the interview then pop them back in right after
      after you get hired then ask about their policy on piercings. my coding job last year was ok with it. no face piercings, just ears.

      I saw one of your posts in the Desktop Background topic and saw your anime-styled one on the second to last page. However, I saw you have an interesting layout with the taskbar on the top. Is that a Windows 7 feature or do you have a Mac? If it's a normal Vista thing, how might I be able to get it?

      I'm not huge into movies and I am easily pleased with most of what I see. I am also picky about movies and have to be in a certain mood to watch almost anything. Over all It was really sweet, and I didn't even expect much from it. I thought it would have ridiculous humor throughout the whole thing but I was wrong, and I am glad I was since I hate crude humor with a passion. I only bought it because I wanted something to watch this weekend, and I was really surprised with how much I liked it. The relationship between Zack and Miri is really really sweet from beginning to end (in my opinion). It's one of those movies that I don't have to be in a movie mood to watch, and I am super happy about that aspect too.
