    • The Case of the Restless Redhead

      7 years ago

      TeaBaggins

      It has come to pass. The Dark Lord and his evil brethren have risen to ensure that in 2012, mankind will perish in the flames of non-productivity. Diablo 3 is finally out and while much is the same there are many things different, but was it all worth the wait. For the uninitiated Diablo 3 is an action RPG where the driving reason to play is coke high simulating never ending loop of click, kill, loot, repeat.

      Prosecution

      I could go on and on about the WoW-ification of the art style, recycling the first game within act one, reduced skill options and really a slew of moderately trivial gripes I have with the game, but nothing compares to rage inducing always online requirement and how it's executed. Your game is always considered an online game, even if you are playing single player. So if Blizzard's servers can't keep up with the amount of users online at a given time, you simply cannot play the game you paid your hard earned money for. Blizzard should also be given an award for being the first company that released a game that lags in a single player setting. I was killed a few times mid battle when monsters stopped moving for a few moments then I was suddenly moved forward into an alternate timeline where I had been repeatedly punched in the face for ten seconds as Battle.net synced up with my game.

      Defense

      Blizzard has taken nothing away from its users besides having to make arbitrary decisions. What's the point of spending attribute points when you put them all in the category that gives you more damage? What's the point of giving you a skill tree when almost every player has the same build to max out DPS? Attributes are now given automatically based on your class and as for skills, they've reduced your total number of skills and gave you five ways to customize each skill with runes. Turn your Ray of Frost from a laser beam to a dome of ice if you want, and since you don't spend points there's no time wasted bad builds or the need to go back in town for an expensive reset character item.

      The presentation in this game is second to none. The CGI cut scenes look and sound better then most Hollywood blockbusters. Blizzard has also taken a cue from modern games and included fully voice acted journals that are picked up throughout game and fill in the gaps in the story without getting in they way of slaughtering helpless demons. The sound effects are amazing as well. Hits are impactful and spells come to life in ways I didn't expect. Even changing a rune not only effects the visualization, but subtle shifts in audio as well.

      Verdict

      Guilty of wasting vacation time on launch day. There are enough people who have no intention of playing online or using the auction house for Blizzard to include an off-line mode. At the very least a one time per session online check because lag in a single player game is absolutely unacceptable.

      Not guilty of phoning in a sequel. Whatever your opinion on the new art style is (hated it), the countless hours spent on making the game play, look and feel almost perfect are evident at every step. Bonus points for wearing D&D references proudly on it's sleeves.

      It's been a very long time since I've posted anything on the site but I just launched a new site and hoping to get some people to actually see it.

      While installing Diablo 3, it's hard not to feel somewhat nostalgic.

      This game is more than just a massive time sync for me, the original Diablo was the sole reason for me to upgrade to Windows 95. After that I rode the wave of stellar PC launches through out the 90s and only stopped when the video card arms race had escalated to the point of nearly bankrupting nerds across the country. It seems as though Blizzard has managed to somehow do it again. Social networks have been filled with "can I run Diablo 3 with X" posts and I've spent what ever money it took to get My computer up to snuff.

      Blizzard may have inadvertently re-ignited the PC market as a whole because not only I am pumped to left click demons for hours, but I can't help but be even more excited for what I will be playing two to six months from now. I really enjoyed the last ten years of console gaming but if history is going to repeat itself, I may have to invest in a hemorrhoid pillow soon.

    • pee free environment

      11 years ago

      TeaBaggins

      I have finaly finished my theory/strategy on finding the cleanest stall in a public bathroom. The first half of it came to me by accident when I noticed a significant amount of pubes on the first few stalls at the drive in forced me to continue on down the line till I found a relatively pee free urinal. I noticed that it was almost dead center of all the stalls that were there.

      It made me think about all bathroom experiences in recent memory. At my old job where I was far from home and forced to drop a duece in a public stall I found the cleanest one was in fact the center stall. I asked k0ph if she had similar obsevations and she confirmed my hypothesis is gender nuetral.

      My theory is based on a few aspects of human psychology: laziness, paranoia, and claustrophobia. First laziness, people just tend to use the first open stall, and that means the first stall is pretty much off limits. Second paranoia, no one wants their junk looked at and being at either end of the line gives you a false sense of security that the fewer people on either side of you the better. Third claustrophobia, this is stall specific. People always go to the handicaped stall because of the extra arm space thinking that they somehow need 8 feet of space between them and the wall never stopping to think that they are lucky to have 8 inches of space in their own home.

      Very recently I have also made one other important observation. Try to be 1-2 stall away from the drain. Theres a lot of people that can't keep their fluid in the porcelein throne and the drainage system in public bathrooms is hardly perfect and the closer you are to the drain the more likely you are to be standing in a biological specimen.

      If you guys can think of any other ways to increase bathroom hygenics please feel free to post.

      So k0ph and I go to see Peaches at the Fillmore on sat and we lern one thing, "fabulous" gays are the rudest people on earth. No this is not meant as a homophobic statement. I live in Nor cal and theres abunch of gay people here and ther good people like most of us but the glamourus ones genuinely think that the entire world exist soley to sustain there presence. we'r towards the fron and having a decent enough time and when Peaches finaly comes on it's like the tranny apacolypse. Ive seen more manners at a death metal show. one couple are in this lusty embrace of total devistation. and start makin out thier way to the front like a steam roller of gay passion. the fact that it was gay people doing was not the issuse, but the fact that one starts giving the other a handjob in the middle of the crowd and rubs the dudes wang on OTHER PEOPLE is pretty fucking disgusting. I swear to god I've seen better show ettiquete at a metal show. After that she was so pissed we decided to catch the end of some industrial film festival that was playing a Throbing Grisle concert to salvage the night. we got back in town around five then hit up Jack in the box for last minute grub before naptime.

      my job sucks...thats pretty much the long and the short of it. Please do me a favor, if you own a cell phone (which Im assuming most of you do) do not, repeat, do not get mad at the guy in a store for not giving you a free phone when YOU are the one who broke it. I swear to god I have no idea where these lofty fucking expectaions have come from. If you 20" sony goes out do you yell at the cable company till they buy you a new one?

      I'm lookin for a new job already. I could probably deal with it if I didnt have to drive 2 hours a day. Also the union re-negotiated(sp) our commision and now I'm gunna take a pay cut too. I've decided no more sales. Im gunna apply for management at a bunch of different places and hope I get in. I might not but Im tired of working my way up only to get burned at the last minute.

      Now for good updates. k0ph and I have been hangin out lately and thats cool cuz I want to hurt others a lot less when she's around (she promised to rub my crotch and call me optimus prime while we watch transformer and I'm very exited about that.). I saw Nitzer Ebb and Babyland with her last month and that was cool. the sing of Babyland uses air freshener on stage as a ghetto fog machine, it was awsome in so many ways. the Singer for Nitzer Ebb was so drunk he fell twice and the second time was right on his face. We got tix to se Aquabats on thursday and we're gunna see one more show next saturday.

      I'm really hopin to get a job closer to home so I'll get more online time, cuz I know how muched I'm missed here and I feel bad depriving you guys of the Baggins.

      I just trimmed up my watch list cuz I was unfriended during my hiatus. If it was all some misunderstanding and you just can't live without the Baggins, then you just go to hell and die you fucking fair weather bastards. What if like, my house caught on fire and the first thing I see when I come back is all "you have less friends bitch, I hope your loser ass can cope" Oh sure you sit in your ivory tower looking down and be all "A, you don't comment enough you are sooo not friend worthy"...bastard...bastards I say.

      Edit: I watch all friends and a few other people I find interesting

If anyone had any thing major happen in their lives like won the lottery, lost in budapest, or had their anal cherry popped, feel free to let me know. My new job has me traveling 100 miles a day and working 43 hours a week. I'm tired so lets try to slow dow with the journals *looks at people with Dark in their names*.

      The bastards at Best Buy fired me today smiley2.gif . Yeah, aperantly being late all the time and occasionaly not showing up at all is a bad thing. No big deal though, it just happened to come on the same day I was going to quit (they totaly stole my thunder). I've hated wearing that blue shirt for some time now and started looking around for new income. I was hired last week to work for a cell phone company. The money is a lot better there and I won't look like a jack ass while I'm working(no more than usual at least). The best part is that I got to keep my shirts so I do a bunch of messed up stuff in uniform and put it online. Any ideas...? (keep the gay stuff to a minimum)

      I am not as much of a regular user as I used to be. It was now 5 days ago. I am gunna drink juice and water like its nobody's business. LOL. The guy I blazed with is a 16-35 time a day user. He smokes constantly. His GF works at a hospital and she said 8 days...but I dunno. I think I should just try to work at the IHOP nearby...they dont DT so meh. Plus the guy I smoked with is the manager. Hmmm *shifty eyes* Job op? maybe. But I would rather work at the Wendy's and Petco (2 jobs) cuz they are accross the street. Plus I know everyone that works at the Wendy's (turns out most of them love me there anyways) and The petco has tasty fish and turtles and shit...LOL! I just dont wanna have to ride the bus to IHOP when I can walk to the 2 places accross the street. Plus if I work at the Wendy's the manager gives you a 2 week notice before a DT so that works. The manager comes to work high a lot. Most of the employees are stoners too. So it works. I guess. Hit me up sometime.

      Actually TBAGS. I have NEVER agreed with you more. Dumb whore part excluded. I still have feeling for her...but not like I used to...I have already hit up some parties and found that...due to my slightly larger eating habit...tight shirts do NOT look the best on me. I have already lost 10 pounds and have found that this rapid weight loss has made me a bit of a magnet for party invites and hot girls. Lets just say...the Beer Gut Sluts are not even worth it when you are gettin girls that look like movie stars and models... Needless to say...My "dry spell" or Drought seem so be hitting MONSOON season. LOL
