    • Nastyness and my luck with jagged glass.

      13 years ago

      So.. I have great luck with jagged glass... In order to prove this I will relate a short story from my recent(ish) past:
      I have a friend who Ihaveknown most of my life who lives on an island near St. Petersberg, FLA. He was still in high school and living with his parents... They were very nice people but rather strick and religious (also into health food).They didn't care what I did while I was there as long as Nik (my friend) did not participate. So once we had a bunch of us sleeping over and we wanted some snack since nik wasn't allowed out after midnight we decided to sneak out and go up to the store... Now Niks room was a sun room and had a floor to ceiling glass wall/doors running the whole length of the part connected to the rest of the house.... 8ft high, 1/4 inch thick, douple paned gass doors. So we left (with the lights all off naturally) and head to the store... Now keep in mind that someone had the bright idea to close the glass door... So skip ahead a bit.. We come back, quietly enter the house (with a load of snacks) and rush back to his room with me in the lead.. Now his room also goes down about a 4inch drop in the level of the floor as you enter it... So as I am rushing in I leap over the drop and gracefully into his room... Er it would have been gracefully if I hadn't just jump THOUGH a 8 foot high half inch thick (total thickness) pane of glass... Someone from the back of out litte line asks in a harsg wisper "what'd ya do drop a ucking pan?! were screwed now..." I calmly reply "oh.. its worsethan that.. Much worse".
      Remarkably they got into the room.. we quickly hid the snacks and we all claimed I had been going to the bathroom... No harm done. However the amazing part is I had only 3 TINY injuries that were the sze of paper cuts after throwing myself though this big ass glass door... And was the single thing I have done in my life I most wish had been caught on tape.. Because it would have been cooler than anything. Ever.

      fastforward a couple years to yesterday:
      I was mad that my xbox 360 kept signing into the wrong profile automatically (GARG... its STILL doing that). So I wanted to smash the thing but I decied (wisely in my opinion) that that would bea bad idea... So instead I decieded to smash an IBC cream soda bottle wich I had sitting there. With my fist. By punching it. Bad idea? Nah.. If you think you see where this is going you are probably wrong but not by to much. I had been practicing my punches having taken a few classes in karate and also having praticed trying to punch through my bathroom door.. For which I have a cracked (though not broken) panel on my bathroom door and brused knuckles.. Anyway I punched the glass bottle to bits with no injury (other than further brusing my knuckles.. they are stronger than they look). So I pcked up the glass and went on with my life.. Sort of. By sort of I don't mean I "sort of" went on with my life. I mean I "sort of" picked up the glass... And by this I mean (and yes you can see where this is going now) I left one big jagged peice which was the mouth of the bottle broken off and sitting onthe floor with the end yo drink out of facing down and the jagged en that was supposed to be attached to th rest of the bottle sticking straight up. Since ou already know what I am about to say: I will just mention that dashing into my room and jumping down hard on that piece of glass stung a little and bled A LOT. Now I have a massive assed cut on my foot... Ouch..

      I think my luch with glass may have run out.

    • DOA 4: Impressions

      13 years ago

      duncan_stive

      Well.. Everyone who knows me knows I bought a 360 so I could be good and sure to have one for the release of Halo 3 (hell most people probably bought one for the same reason). They also know how obsessed I am with Halo.. I will be the first to admit it.. I left work early the day the trailer for H3 came out and I must have watche it WELL over a tousand times since then (not to mention the fact that I have the video as my screensaver). In fact I could easily be consider more of a "halo player" than a gamer... I have tried all sorts of different games and many of them I never even finished and we are talking good games, Hell scratch that GREAT games.. Far Cry, FEAR, HL2, Elements of power, Quake 4, Doom3, EQ2 and others... None of them has come anywhere close to either halo in my opinion.. So the ultimate question has been: Can anything ever trump Halo?

      DOA 4:
      I went into Wal-Mart the other day (that is to say.. yesterday) for some butter. I forgot the butter but I did remember that DOA 4 had a spartan in it.. Also I had playted the DOA 3 demo for dreamcast and kinda liked it.. So I said "what the hell I only own 1 360 game.. I might as well pick it up.. Beside the gods people and Bungie liked it enough to allow a spartan to be put in it so it MUST be good"... Took it home.. Hoping I hadnt wasted 60 bucks

      Two word: Holy Shit.
      Where to start. Maybe the INSANLY awesome graphics.. The kind of thing you see in prerenders *cough*sony*cough*... Absolutly stunning.. Seriously.. You will be to distracted to fight the first couple matches.. I mean you have never seen anyhting like it (withthe possible exception of the H3 trailer.. LOL).
      Or possibly the gameplay: Accessible immediatly with seemingly endless depth as you get better.. The last time I saw gameplay this good was well.. Halo..
      Maybe the animations:
      No objects going through one another no matter how hard you smash your opponent (or they smash you!) and no matter how awkwardly you get jammed against that log. In a word its perfect. (I have to take a good spirited jab at Halo 2 here: I mean ingame maybe you would see some of this But in CUTSCENES?!)

      But what really sets it apart and causes me to miss showering, meals and even sleep is the shear style and coolness of it... you can see the drector's (who's name I simply cannot spell) personality shinning through clearly and it is clear he is one bad motherfucker... I couldn'd get rid of this stupid grin all the way through Helena's final cutscene (also the credits).

      So in closing:
      I laughed out loud.. I almost cried and I am totally addicted... A+ all the way

      comparision:
      The shear awesomeness of this is deserving of a cross genre comparision:

      Is it better than the first Halo? Holy shit.. I have to say yes...
      Is it better than Halo 2? *cue the dromroll*.. I may have to shoot myself afterward but I have to say it: Yes it is! (OMFG... You guys DO NOT HAVE ANY IDEA how cool something has to be for me to say THAT!).

      Will it be better than Halo 3? I donno but all I can say is BRING IT ON!

      *shoots self*

      An update in case anyone wonders if I died:

      I am still here.. still busy at work. Just that nothing interesting has happened to me that I can really talk about here.. My company is really getting there and we are doing a number of exciting things.. Most of which would not mean anyting to anyone even IF I could talk about it. Also I desperatly need a hair cut so I will cut htis short to go get one.

      I will leave with one final insight: Getting married over RvB is considered spam and should not be done via the personal comments section. So if you or someone you know is thinking about marring via RvB please remember: Keep it to messaging. That is all...

    • Halo. Freaking. 3.

      Yes I am posting about this again... No I have no new info (with the exception of the fact that Halo 3 is such fucking huge news that IGN PAYS adult people to do an in depth anyalisis of a 2:17 video of it..

      Other than that I just thought I would let everyone know that this teaser still makes me jizz myself.. even after having seen it upwards of 1000 times (I am dead serious about how many times I have watched it).

      I got Burnie's award.. I know its nothing in the grander scheme of things but the people who make RvB are pretty awesome and knowing one of them has been checking out my profile or something is pretty sweet (actually 2 of them as I also have Kathleens award)...

      In other news... My internet is STILL not working nor is my phone however my neibhors know nothing about wireless LANs apparently as they still have not noticed my presence on their connection dispite my downloading some ungodly sized files over it.. LOL.

      EDIT: Also I just noticed he award took me up to 98% of the way to level 35.. Which is a cool side benifite because I will be level 35 in a few days max now... Coolness...

      Linus programs usually aren't very big. Though there are more "advanced" programs that use a gui (Graphical User Interface) to make it look a lot better and non-nerdy.

      It works for me because I'm the system administrator so people aren't supposed to understand what I'm doing. They can't tell if it's my normal work or not.

      No, it doesn't support java or flash or anything like that. I just use it for rvb anyways.

      Nope, I did that almost a year ago.
      My X-Box started to crap out on me... like the games would freeze up, and after a while it wasn't even turning on much anymore. I tried replacing the power cable, but that didn't work. So my friend Jon, who was also having problems with his X-Box, asked if he could try to fix his with mine, and he did. so now I just had the gutted X-Box sitting in the dorm room, collecting dust.

      It's boring to just throw it away, but since it was no longer under warranty, I couldn't do anything. So me and my friend got the idea to just beat the shit out of it smiley0.gif
