      Yesterday I got a lot of work done. I rewatched all of the E3 conferences to take some notes for a video, as well as scripted a new video. I'm excited to see if this one gains an audience. Otherwise I've just been going back and rewatching the original Dragonball. It's actually rather fun, and notable that the series was originally written short, and expanded as it got more and more popular. Here's some Dragonball.

      Well, we passed the E3 Conferences, and while I wasn't blown away, I have some thoughts.

      1. Microsoft fulfilled their promise of all about the games, and I liked what I saw, but it doesn't undo their problems with One's used games and online policies.
      2. Nintendo is very committed, and they are making strides towards making Wii U a must-have console. Almost all their game reveals looked good. Wind Waker HD is a little pointless,but hey, people will love it.
      3. EA doesn't know how to do a press conference anymore. They had plenty of good stuff to reveal, but their showmanship sucked.
      4. Ubisoft did great, even if #girlwood is ridiculous. Lot of games I look forward to from them. Also, props for their continued support of Wii U.
      5. While Sony didn't have enough exclusive reveals(FFXV and KH3 are not exclusives), and the console looks stupid, they basically stuck it to Microsoft with the offline playability, used games freedom, and price point. Microsoft has to pull something huge, or PS4 has already won the next console generation.

      So I missed yesterday due to a number of factors, E3 conferences being the big one. Looking forward to Nintendo's news today, seeing if they can play any sort of catch up. I see big possibilities for them, mainly for these two reasons:

      The Big N has a real chance to do something amazing here and shock everyone. With Microsoft in hot water and Sony not showing off enough must-buy exclusives in my opinion(Although they get points for basically sticking it to Microsoft about a half dozen times in their reveal), Nintendo could swoop in with their major franchises and say now is the time to buy a Wii U. I might have to eat these words later, but I think they have a shot.

      Busy day yesterday. Cleaned the house, gave to Goodwill, sold some speakers, bought GTA IV(I'm way behind in gaming), and got my phone battery. I have a phone again! I'm worn out, but in a good mood.

      Kind of like that.

      Yesterday was spent gathering footage for my newest episode of Prechievement Hunting, viewable here. The game covered, Aerobiz Supersonic, is still a lot of fun and I almost got sucked back into it for the entire day. Editing was finished this morning and it's here for your pleasure. As I played the game on Genesis, let's take a look at the SNES box art.

      Things go on as normal for the unemployed. Although I did get a birthday gift everyone can appreciate:

      Not much to report, but yesterday was an average day in the life of an unemployed person. Draw your own conclusions. Here's another birthday present I got:

      That went right on my fridge. Now what to make...

      Yesterday I saw Star Trek II: The Remake of Khan(It's not a spoiler if it's obvious). Good film. Several plot holes, but still a very good film. Go see it. Now we chronicle the next gift I got for my birthday:
      starwars_blu-ray_pack_lg.jpg
      I'm a bizarre Star Wars fan. My favorite character is Thrawn from the Expanded Universe(I read a lot of the books), my favorite version of the original trilogy is the 1997 special editions, and I know the prequels have A LOT of problems, but I still enjoy them(well, except Episode II). I'm really excited to watch this blu ray, as I like to see the changes and edits. I see them as DLC for the movies, much like special features. I still have my limited edition DVDs, which have both the original edits and the DVD cuts of the films, and I will keep them. But I will watch the blu rays, I will have fun noticing the differences, picking them apart to determine which ones are good and which ones are dumb. I actually look forward to a time when we have a video format where we can choose which edits we like, and make our own custom edition of the film, catered to our own personal taste.
