      falchion17

      Tomorrow I will be flying back to Lexington for a new semester at school and things are already chaotic. One of my teachers sent an email over the break to inform us that we would have a test sometime on the first week which sucks because I haven't even bought my books yet. Also, since I'm flying home, I can't take many of my Christmas presents back to college so they will have to be mailed to me later. Despite all that I am still looking forward to going back to school since things are a little dull at home and I basically miss college life smiley0.gif .

      Decision Time
      To celebrate surviving the break at my parents house, (and since the first week or so of classes is pretty easy) I was going to buy a new PS3 game. I've narrowed it down to Dead Space, Little Big Planet, Prince of Persia, and Resistance 2. I'm leaning towards the first 2 because I just beat Mirror's Edge and PoP is also an acrobatic, free running game plus I never played the first Resistance so I have a feeling that I would need to play through that first to get the story. Anyways, leave some feedback and I'll let you know what I end up getting.

      So I've been inactive for about 8 months and I figure it's high time for some updates smiley0.gif . I'm halfway through my second year at college and am currently enjoying my winter break at the beach with family and friends. While I've been gone there have been tons of changes here on the site and I am still trying to figure out all the details. The good news is that I will be updating more often and I've turned on email alerts so I will never forget to log in for long periods of time.

      Have a great New Years and you'll be hearing from me soon,

    • The Fun Begins

      Well I have officially finished my second semester of college.....sorta. All my finals are done and I'm satisfied with my grades but there is still mayterm (beginning on wednesday) which I have been looking forward to all year. Its basically one month of taking one class for two hours everyday. What makes it really great is that all the mayterm classes are non-traditional and fun, plus there is a hell of a lot more freetime for everyone so there are always fun activities going on like midnight volleyball or rock band tourny's.

      New Games
      So i was really bored yesterday since I'm burned out on Cod4 multiplayer (I've gone from rank 1 - 55 in about a week and a half smiley0.gif ) for the time being and the Metal Gear Online Beta dosent begin until monday so i decided to make a trip over to gamestop. Well I ended up pre-ordering GTA IV for PS3 and buying Assassins Creed for PS3. I knew it was a good game but once I started playing it I just got sucked in. I had a blast racing past guards on my horse and climbing to the top of lookout points all over the kingdom. So far I only have one small complaint: some of the activities, like saving citizens in distress, get a little repetitive. That is not a big deal though because there are always multiple ways to do anything in the game. I dont want to rush the game but I'm hoping to play Assassins Creed and MGO quite a bit in the next week because I know I will drop everything once I get GTA IV on the 28th smiley8.gif .

      No Country
      I finally got around to watching No Country for Old Men last night and I've got to say, it blew me away. I loved how the Coen brothers made the film almost completely devoid of music, it made for a much more suspenseful tone and placed more emphasis on all the dialog. I think that Chigurh was one of the coolest characters I've seen in quite a while. I really love how he would sometimes kill innocents and villains alike without warning but other times he would give people a second chance at life. Overall I would say that the movie surpassed all the hype surrounding it and I give it:

      PS3
      Well I got my 80 gig PS3 in the mail last Friday and have been setting everything up to my liking since then. I bought the necessary HDMI cables and hooked everything up so I can enjoy superior graphics and Blu Ray on my HDTV. I also successfully installed PSUbuntu on the system which works like a charm. Additionally I found a cool little feature on the PS3, if I press the power button on the actual system then it boots straight into linux but if I use the PS3 controller to turn it on, it goes straight into the normal os smiley0.gif . I also set up my PSN account so feel free to add me (or on any other service) because I've only got two friends right now smiley2.gif

      falchion17

      Well i checked my bank account the other day and noticed that my frugal spending over the past few months had resulted in several hundred dollars that i didnt need to save so i went spending. I bought an 80-gig ps3 with several games from rvb member ags21c, the 6 disc rvb box set, and rainbow six vegas 2 for 360. hopefully these purchases will keep me busy for a while smiley0.gif

    • Time for an Update

      falchion17

      Spring break was so-so. I was able to play lots of brawl and hang out with my friends but the daunting workload that waited for me after the break was enough to spoil any true relaxation. Ive been really busy this week and still have a 15 page term paper and presentation next week so im not in the clear by any stretch but its manageable. Ive got to pick a roommate and sign up for dorms in a week or so but i think ill just stay in the dorm im currently in because the others are more expensive and are outside of the 'college community' created by the 3 biggest dorms at my college.

      summer plans
      Ive pretty much decided to work at my school during the summer because i would get free housing, some free food, increased pay, 40 hours a week, 2 weeks of vacation to visit home, and there are about 100 students on campus during the summer so it wouldnt get too boring. Plus ill sign-up for gamefly in early may which will ensure that i always have something fun to play. In addition, i am getting a ps3 (the mgs4 limited edition 80-gig) in june so that will complete my collection of current-gen gaming platforms that i care to own (i dont really care that much about the psp smiley7.gif )

      poll
      im going to start a new section in each new journal where you can weigh in on whatever the question is. today's poll:

    • Brawl & Spring Break

      11 years ago

      falchion17

      Super Smash Bros. Brawl
      As you may well be aware, super smash bros brawl comes out March 9th. Well ive had a pre-order at gamestop for quite some time and have been eating up all the hype/reviews lately. As i figured, most testers and critics agree that hardcore fans should play it on the traditional gamecube controller. I have 2 indigo controllers but they are about 7 years old so i bought a brand new, silver controller just for Brawl smiley0.gif . I will pick-up my copy at midnight and then spend roughly the next 5-7 years of my life playing through it! I think the most pleasant new feature will be the stage creator which will function like forge, allowing players to make their own maps and then upload them to the main server where any player can download them. Im also looking forward to the new adventure mode which is supposed to take around 8-12 hours to beat. Much better than the 30 minutes or so in melee. Overall its going to be freaking amazing and it will be more addictive than cocaine!

      Spring Break
      my spring break begins this friday and i will be flying back home to spend the week with my parents and friends. I was forced to make a decision between whether to take the wii or 360 with me for the week but since brawl is going to come out while im at home it wasnt too hard smiley8.gif . Hopefully i will be able to put down brawl for long enough to visit with everyone including friends of ours flying down from canada for a few weeks. Ill try to enjoy the break as much as possible because the week i go back to school, i have 1 paper (10 pages), 2 presentations (10-15 minutes), and an extensive lab write-up (10-20 pages) due. smiley4.gif

      smiley9.gif NOTE smiley9.gif my roommate cleaned up all of his mess from saturday night and i left the windows and doors open all day to let everything air out so now there is no trace of his drunken mess (he told me the next day he had 18 beers the night before smiley7.gif )

    • A Cautionary Tale

      11 years ago

      falchion17

      So my roommate wandered back into our room about 2 hours ago completley drunk. Im not much of a drinker myself but i could tell he was absolutley hammered. I also noticed there was a 24 pack of beer in my room and all but 6 were gone and im pretty sure he had most of them. Anyways, he came back and stumbled to his computer and fiddled around with it for a few seconds, then he took his pants off and layed down. The next thing i know, he is puking all over the bed, floor, and himself. I gave him a trash can that he stood over for the next 5 minutes before he went to the bathroom for about half an hour. He finally came back, went to my fridge, opened the door, threw up and promptly closed it again smiley4.gif . Now hes back in the bathroom puking in the urinal and shower.

      Im betting he wakes up and has no clue what happened. Whatever, ill clean it up and post a real journal tomorrow.

      The moral of the story is: DONT TALK TO STRANGERS!!!

      Well after about 2 months straight of nothing but projects and papers, i think i am finally in the clear and can continue my 2 main hobbies: gaming and rvb. You can expect me to be active from now on smiley0.gif

      halo 3
      well before i put everything fun in my life on hold, i was about half-way through the 1000 achievements in the game. This weekend i played over 24 hours of halo online and was able to go from a private to a lieutenant as well as beating all but the last level on legendary. After i complete the last level and get all the terminals after class today i will be left with 4 achievements left: killing frenzy, overkill, 2 for 1 (spartan laser), and all the easy little meta-scoring ones. I have gotten both killing frenzy and overkill on social matches before so i know that it woulnt be too hard, however, the 2 for 1 seems near impossible without cheating. i mean they would have to be standing super close together or one guy trying to jack a ghost or something like that. Basically i need some ideas of ways to get it because camping with the laser on the beach of high ground didnt work smiley4.gif

      here is a recent game of mine where i got the extermination medal. too bad that isnt an achievement

      Rock Band Under the Influence
      so friday night was pretty fun. around 7pm i went down to my friends room to see what their plan was only to find out that two of them bought a 30 pack of coors to split between them and they had already downed about 5 each and were playing rock band. well to make a long story short i was nominated to be the designated guitarist for the 6 hour jam session. i kept having to use my overdrive to save my friend on the drums because he had a total of 12 beers and it was becoming hard for him to get the rythm down for some reason smiley0.gif . other than that it was a pretty good evening especially when they tried to sing flyleaf in their highest pitch voice smiley7.gif

      fun prank
      here is something to pull on that unlucky friend who recently ticked you off. all you need is access to their computer and microsoft word. everytime word is opened, curses will appear on the screen at random intervals between 1-30 seconds. you can add more curses to the program and even change the time between words. play nice boys and girls smiley8.gif

      props
      mad props goes out to bunig and iamsam9895 for winning mods in my mini-contest. for those of you who couldnt figure out which 1995 racing game the screenshot belonged to, it was one of my favorites: Hi-Octane. sorta like mario kart + wipeout + spaceship gore = happy childhood moments

      Agreed, I rented both and Saints Row 2 has the most appeal when it comes to long-term aspects. This is mainly due to its "silly" atmosphere and gameplay and wildly diverse city.
      Far Cry 2 seems a bit too linear of a game seeing as in the end you have to play certain missions to progress, the other missions are just for fun and some extra stuff. Okay, well the Underground missions are pretty important but whatever.
      Seems like Saints Row 2 will be the winner in the poll and in my heart.

      I'm pretty pleased to get back $200 (state and federal combined) since I only worked 5 months.

      In reality our Columbus Consolidated Government functions as a whole better (police/court systems, fire/ems, housing authority, etc) better than others but because everything is borderline merged with somoene else for an outsider its like a fucking circus act jumping through hoops to get to the right person with the right form.
