      So you beat Mass Effect 3...terrific. Now you know how I feel. And how the community in general feels. Fans are asking Bioware to fix the ending via DLC. Here's hoping they'll listen and give this series the ending it deserves. It makes more sense to do that instead of alienating so many pissed off fans, losing a lot more money in the long run. In the mean time, here's a link that actually improves the ending through video editing.

    • January trip

      7 years ago

      Nitro288

      So here I am in Costa Rica. Wont be back till the end of this month. And this keyboard has some keys that are different, so screw proper pronounciation.

      Anyways, so the point of this trip is that my grandmother is sick, and this might be the last time my sister and I will see her. Honestly, after arriving at her home... I cant imagine her not being there the next time I come back. Everytime my family and I come here, she is there, in that same house. Its been that way ever since Ive been coming here. Ive tried to think about how things will be once she is gone... and there is no answer to that.

      So far though, my sister and I have been enjoying ourselves. Spending time with family I havent seen in a year is always a good thing. There is also the things I forgot to bring with me on this trip.

      I brought my Xbox... but forgot to bring controllers. I brought my laptop for the PC games I have in there...but forgot my gaming mouse...though I was pretty sure I did pack that in. Brought the game case of MW3 to play SpecOps Survival with my sister...but forgot to remove the game from her xbox. XD

      I created a spreadsheet with a list of things for the next time that I travel. When traveling alone, its easy, since I only have to worry about my own stuff. But when going to Costa Rica, I suddenly have to remember about the stuff she wants us to bring as well. I can only remember so much before I forget everything else.

    • Death

      7 years ago

      Nitro288

      My dog Tiger died two days ago. He got the point where he was no longer able to walk, so my family decided to put him to sleep. I still keep thinking about the final moments, me petting him on the head as the needle went in, and how he calmly laid down to sleep. I'm still somewhat in denial of my dog's death. I will sometimes do something, only to remember that he's dead, and there is no longer a reason for that action. No regrets on the decision to let him go though.

      Here is another story. Before we took Tiger to the hospital for the euthanasia, we stopped by the home of this elderly man, who my mom was close to. She used to care for his wife...until she died a year ago. The following morning, after Tiger was put to sleep, he died. His body was found on the floor, near his bed. Just came back from the funeral home, and the funeral is tomorrow. I wasn't very close to him, but my mother was, and he was a very nice guy. Often gave out $20 to my mom or anyone in my family like it was free candy. May he rest in peace with his wife.

      Who else is dying? My grandma. On January, my sister and I are making a trip to Costa Rica for 2 weeks, to see our grandma one last time. Not too long ago, her health was so bad she got sent to the hospital. My mom left to Costa Rica, and stayed there for a week to care for her health. Wolfy was the first person I told this to, and without any effort on my part, here is how the conversation went:

      Me: "I'll be going to Costa Rica in January."
      Wolfy: "Have fun!
      Me: "My grandma is dying."
      Wolfy:"...I'm sorry to hear that."
      *I laugh*

      ________________________________________________________________________________

      If there is one thing that stood out for me this year, more than any other I've had my my life, its that I've been more exposed to real life deaths. The guild I was a part of in DCUO contributed to that. Often, the guys there were going through a situation where someone they loved were dying, or recently died.

      One of them had a mother that was dying in the hospital, and he would inform us of her progress, and then her death. Fire's uncle was a firefighter that passed away, which then encouraged him to change his name to Fire Marshal for a short while. Rose bloom was dying of cancer before we even met her. The ex-wife of one of my former leaders died recently.

      So remember that video I made, to honor a former member of my guild, Assassins League?

      Well, Gold shared the video with the community awhile back, but I didn't bother to look at the community responses... until now...and honestly, the responses there just made me glad I did what I did.

    • KOTOR II TSLRCM

      7 years ago

      Nitro288

      Before the SWTOR Beta even started, I began to play KOTOR II for PC. I remember playing it WAY before KOTOR I on the original Xbox, and later finding out that many people thought KOTOR II was inferior to the first one. Glitches, cut content, and a story that didn't try to emulate the feel of KOTOR I are contributing factors to that sentiment.

      To emphasize the difference between the two games, KOTOR I was similar in tone and feel to the original trilogy. You had a diverse cast of characters aiding the hero in a fight against an evil Sith lord in a war that would determine the fate of the galaxy, and a plot twist that was very shocking back in those days. By now though, everyone knows that the player character is an amnesiac Revan.

      KOTOR II was about the aftermath of the wars. Pretty much, everything went to shit. Political turmoil, economic crisis, destroyed worlds, costly reconstruction efforts, etc. During that time, Jedis were also being hunted down by a new Sith threat that was targeting them alone. And rather than the player character being a blank slate, she was a veteran of an earlier war, who was responsible for ending it...after she ordered her subordinate to press a shiny button that partially destroyed a planet and all life on it. That action also resulted in the loss of her own force sensitivity... yeah, pretty dark stuff for a Star Wars game, and the problems are much worse than what I described.

      I downloaded and installed a Mod, called The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM). What the mod does is fix many glitches in the game, and restores content that was originally cut from the final game, but were still kept in the game files anyways.

      Stuff like this scene.

      I just got past the part where you end up in a Mandalorian camp, and now Mandalore the Preserver (Canderous Ordo) is helping my character out in her search of the Jedis. I'm playing the game as the canon version of the Jedi Exile. I'm using the canonical name, and even installed another mod to make my character look like the canon version too.

    • The Beta

      Nitro288

      The SWTOR Beta...It was amazing! All doubts about the game were lost after playing it, and getting used to the controls. I played as Smuggler, Trooper, Jedi Consular, Sith Inquisitor, Sith Warrior, Bounty Hunter, and a little bit of Imperial Agent.

      Favorite Storylines: Smuggler, Trooper, Sith Inquisitor, Bounty Hunter
      Favorite Companions: Vette(SW), Khem Val(SI), Qyzen Fess(JC), Mako(BH)

      Also, Ord Mantell's Minefield game...BEST GAME EVER!

    • Thanksgiving Break + Revan

      7 years ago

      Nitro288

      I'm on break, the SWTOR Beta is downloaded, but I have to wait until the Beta weekend officially starts...and my copy of SWTOR: Revan arrived today. I seem to have a nerdgasm at the end of each chapter that features Revan, just because of how those chapters references events and characters from KOTOR.

      So many years, and I'm finally reading the book that ties up the loose ends from the KOTOR games...and sets the stage for SWTOR. I haven't finished yet, but I already love it.

      I especially love how big a role Canderous Ordo has in this book. Canderous Ordo is the epitome of what a Mandalorian should be, and I loved hearing his opinions about war, fighting, loyalty, and honor when I played KOTOR 1 and 2.

      There is also this other story happening on the Empire side, being told from the point of view of Lord Scourge, a Pureblood Sith Warrior that gets involved in a conflict between two Sith Lords who are members of the Dark Council. Interested to see how his story and Revan's tie together.

      Gah, there is SO much I want to talk about regarding this book. BUY IT! Even if you haven't played all the KOTOR games. The book does a good job of catching everyone up to speed on the events of the KOTOR games.

      Anyways, made this journal cause I just loved this line from episode 15.

      So, Tate and I would like to visit a few places. The top few places are the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, the Guggenheim, the American Museum of Natural History, and one other (can't remember). Don't know if you are interested in joining us to these places, but if you are I'm down with you coming.

      Don't know when we'd go yet, but we're trying to plan accordingly. Also, Tate is probably gunna go over to Jersey the first day after we get settled in to visit... someone. Figured I'd let you know.

      I fucking cheered when I saw the Gorasni Navy, and then when Trescu spoke for the first time. SO EPIC!

      I was constantly explaining things to my brother through the whole game, it was funny. I'm just so glad that Traviss got to write the last game. She did an AMAZING job.

      We're not going to be staying in the city all day so I doubt you'll see us. But enjoy the day dude. Don't be afraid of anything bad happening, the people on high will do their jobs and keep everyone safe. I don't see anything going wrong today.

        JUST saw it today. My mom and I were in the Grand Central Terminal. We saw two soldiers, one carrying an m16. When we walked a bit further, we saw two armored cops with submachine guns. BADASS!

      • InsaneDC

        You had to see it going into NY through the Lincoln Tunnel. And fully dressed up cops with flak jackets and everything else. Was an amazing sight.

      haha it does seem like that, but it wasn't "everyone." If I were to elaborate, it was probably the people that directly surround her. I find it kind of funny that the further away you get from her room, which is on one end, towards the other side of the hallway, people don't necessarily pay her the attention she acts like she deserves.

      Yeah, I've looked into it before, the having all the accounts on one xbox thing always holds me back as my brothers and I all have different 360s.

      Will do, hell if you wanna borrow it after I'm finished with it I'll be happy to send it down. Or better yet, I can always let you try it when I come down to NY. Which I still have to find out what the plans are for when I'm there.

      Sounds good.

      Also, for the games you brought up, Metro I was extremely sad to trade in but it gave me some good money, New Vegas also gave me some good money though I wasn't sad to see it go. The glitches in that game pissed me off, especially when I lost my save file, Fallout 3 was much more enjoyable. As for Gears, yeah it is a better game, but Horde just completely makes up for it in 2. Though neither will matter in September. XD

      That's something you'll have to bring up with everyone else; we figured PvE would be a majority of our styles. I hope you are aware that just because we are put into a server that is predominately PvE guilds, we are not restricted to just that. Besides, they did mention that there would be slightly different "rules" for the PvP server. If anything, I would feel more comfortable to wait and see what those rules are in comparison to the other servers.

      If I had a Mac, I would say Final Cut > After Effects (purely for its special effects capabilities) > Vegas > Premier Pro. However, Alex told me that despite Final Cut's awesomeness, it has difficulty interacting with CGI elements.
