      IronMan352

      Well, I've been up to my neck in stuff lately and I thought I might give you a glimse into my life in the form of what I'm currently reading.

      Trigun: Already watched the show, felt like reading the manga. About half way through the first volume.

      Watchmen: Everyone I know says this graphic novel is wicked awesome, I picked it up. I just finished the first chapter.

      Shogun: I'm at about page 800. Second time I've read it. I still love it to death.

      Green Arrow Year One: Graphic novel about the orgin of the Green Arrow. Read it all lst night. Pretty fucking good.

      Gamer Theory: A cool book if you know what the hell he's talking about. The first time I tryed to read it I got half way through and had to put it down. Cool first chapter though. For those of you who have never heard of this one, it's a book by Mackenzie Wark about the shifting of today's world into a series of imperfect games all linked to "gamespace" which encompasses everything. Pick it up some time.

      Wolves of the Calla: If you have never heard of the Dark Tower by Stephen King, then I'm not even going to bother trying to explain it to you. It would take way too long.

      Books I need to read:

      Pirate King by R.A. Salvatore
      Dune by I cant remember who wrote this one.
      A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martins
      The Stand by Stephen King
      The other two Dark Tower books.
      The book that comes after A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
      Dexter Darkly Dreaming

      And probably others that I cant think of right now.

      Have a nice day.

      I am proud to announce my participation in the National Novel Writing Month. NaNoWriMo starts on Nov. 1 and ends Nov. 30 at midnight. The goal is for the participant to write a 175 page novel (50,000 words) from scratch. This is primarily a program to kickstart people who have always wanted to write a novel but with dismayed by the time aspect. Well, this forces people to forego the meticulous editing and push for shear quantity. You can learn more at www.nanowrimo.org/.

      Wish me luck.

      Great Game. I just finished up the second mission on Felucia and have yet to fully start the next mission, but so far, all I have to say is one word: epic.

      Good plot, good outfits, good lightsaber and stat customization, great fighting. For me, nothing will beat gripping a Jawa, throwing him up, and never seeing him come down. That little guy just went sub orbital.

      I also like the button time finishers. They show a very cool sequence that couldnt be achieved via normal gameplay and add a nice little extra to the end of boss battles.

      Overall, I gotta give it a 9 out of 10.

    • My Weekend

      IronMan352

      Seeing as I live near in the Chicago suburbs, I was thinking of headind downtown yesterday to catch the Redbull Flugtag. For those of you who dont know, the Flugtag is an event where people come and launch home built flying machines off a thirty foot ramp over water. 99% of these just go head first into the drink, but it would have been cool to watch.

      I was going to do this, but instead, my cousin needed my help for a digging job he had, so instead of having fun downtown and later going to a free concert at Oysterfest, I spent the day digging in a four foot trench down the center of someone's driveway. I was sad.

      Thankfully, I managed to finish my first run of Too Human that night. Hel wasnt that hard of a final boss in my opinion. I actually thought Garm was harder. I do like the cliffhanger at the very end of the final movie though, very excited about the next game.

    • Quadradius

      10 years ago

      IronMan352

      I found an interesting board game last week. It's an internet board game called Quadradius.

      It's a fairly simple game to begin with. Destroy all of your opponents pieces. You destroy your opponents pieces by jumping on a square occupied by an opposing piece. Normally, you can only move one square up, down, left, or right.

      This is where simplicity ends. During the game, power ups will randomly appear on the board. Each peice holds the power ups it picks up, and the power ups change the game completely. A power up will give the piece a random ability. These abilities include being able to move twice, to destroy opposing pieces from a distance, to move diagonally, to recruit opposing peices, or even change the layout of the board. Most power ups can affect either a single peice, a single column, a single row, or all the squares around a piece, but some can affect the entire board.

      It's a really fun game. Check it out at Quadradius.com

    • Too Human

      10 years ago

      IronMan352

      Well, a couple of nights ago, my cousin picked up Too Human. Upon this news, I quickly got myself over to his house and hijacked his Xbox for about eight hours. I'm only about 40% of the way through the game, but so far I love it. I chose a Human Defender as my first class, and I think it's a very fun class to roll through. I havent been able to jump on co-op yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I kinda like the zero death penalty, it came in handy when I was in a single batle with two trolls, one of those spider bow guys, and plenty of dark elves. Camera does annoy me occasionally, but it's not that bad. I like the interesting combat system, with all attacks being delt through the right stick instead of the trigger. Juggling is very fun too. But, I'm ranting.

      Overall, I give it an 8 out of 10

      IronMan352

      Well, after over twelve months of hiatus, I'm back on the forums. My main reason for leaving was disinterest. But, sadly, just a few weeks ago, one of my favorite shows ended and I felt the need to talk about it. So, I came back.

      I look forward to seeing a bunch of old friends while I'm on the forums. See you there.
