      Do you know what you do for me? To me?

      Here's what I have so far, and I want to continue to work on it from here. Also, I'll try and put them in order of importance at some point.

      this, this is dangerous:

      DARE
      FAT CITY
      BOM BOM BOM
      THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER
      ALL OUT WAR
      ROCK AND ROLL AIN'T NOISE POLLUTION
      SURRENDER
      WITNESS
      ON THE HUNT
      UNDIGNIFIED
      BREAKIN' UP
      JALAPENO LENO
      BITE HARD
      LET IT GO
      WALCOTT

      You know what, I haven't been around RvB for a while, the series ended, the super-hero shorts were lame, and there are other social networking sites. So, naturally I came here to hide from the studying I need to do for my exams.

      What's been occupying my internet time?

      artofmanliness.com
      current.com
      surfthechannel.com
      strategypage.com
      crossfit.com
      wildfitness.com
      thecombatoperator.com
      defensetech.org
      screencrave.com
      offtopic.com
      unscdf.net
      among others of course.

      Frankly, it doesn't help that I'm away from my 360 and recording gear. THEN I'd be able to get to work on the machinima projects I've been drafting all semester long for some clan mates.

      Oh, and then there's the whole personal readership issue, so I don't feel half as bad about neglecting this site a bit.

      So, I certainly see th attraction to the game, the artistry and controls are wonderful. The premise is novel as well.
      But... really, Wouldn't you rather be out free running yourself?

      Halo 3 was epic, everything i was looking for.
      then I moved on to Mass Effect, pure awesomesauce.
      Now Call of Duty 4 and the greatness has no end in sight.
      I'm working on getting my SAW upgraded in multiplayer and am almost there.
      Oh and I unlocked mile high club, the airplane on veteran. that took some doing.
