    • 8 months?

      12 years ago

      oberon227

      I just realized that my last journal entry was about my Wii 8 months ago. Have I really had it for that long??

      And is Smash Bros. Brawl, which was going to be a launch title, really going to be out over a year after I bought the Wii? Not cool Nintendo.

      And while I'm at it, where's Metroid Prime 3??! Super Mario Galaxy is coming out in November, Smash in December, but what about Metroid? That one was really supposed to be a launch game and we don't even have a release date for it yet! It damn well better be the best Metroid evar or I'm going to be pissed.

      AND, what's with the Zapper? It looks like a ray gun now. I liked the shotgun style much better.
      Though, I admit, everything you've done so far has been like totally awesome, so I might be wrong about the Zapper. I am willing to stand corrected.

      Thank you, that is all.

    • Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Part Deux

      12 years ago

      The Wii is awesome.
      All the videos are true. You swing around the remote and the guy on the screen swings the tennis racket. It's one of the best things I've ever seen.
      We were playing with 4 people today, and we saw some issues with pointer coherency (pointers were fading in and out of existance) but I think that was mostly the room we were in (a classroom at school).

      I got Marvel Ultimate Alliance with my Wii. I did NOT get Zelda:TP. If you'll look closely at my display picture, you'll see that I'm pineing away for the Gamecube version. I'm sticking to my guns that it's going to be a better experience since it was designed with that control scheme in mind. I think the Wii version will work, but who wants a control scheme that just works when you can get one that excells on the Cube?
      Besides, I'll always be able to play it on the Wii, just with Cube controllers and memory cards.

      Marvel seems good. I've only played it for a grand total of about 45 minutes, so I'm still getting used to the control scheme. Suffice to say, with the almost complete lack of buttons on the Wii-mote and Nunchuck, there's gestures for everything.

      Had the chance to play Rayman: Raving Rabbids and it was pretty good. Cute, and fun to play. But despite the fact that it's a game of mini-games, it doesn't seem to make for very good multiplayer-ing. Maybe it was just because we didn't have much unlocked (another bad thing) but all the games were "See who could do it the fastest" type games where one player at a time takes their turn. Not much fun watching three other players do what you just did.

      I haven't had a chance to try out Wii friends yet. But apparently my Mii is going to march around the Internet to all my friends and they get to choose if they want to save him on their console. I don't know...
      You can set up email addresses as friends though so you can message between your console and your email address. Pretty snazzy.

      Well, I think I might keep updating with new thoughts as time goes on. I'm sure you'll all just dying to know....

      I'm not usually up this early on a Sunday, but I just got back from waiting in line outside a Walmart for 12 hours for my Wii.
      I got it! But I'm cold. I'm going to go see how it is.

    • Who watches the watchers?

      12 years ago

      oberon227

      You know, my journal entry yesterday got me thinking. I've got 7 people that watch me, yet only one comments. So speak up. Give me a Yo, so I know who's watching me. Cabooseman, you're expemt because I know you watch me. Freakin' stalker....

      Rooster Teeth (more accurately, Corporate Green, the guys who make the site) should implement a feature so you can see a list of people who watch you. For guys like Burnie, that'd be everyone, but for guys like me, that's only 7 people. I'd just like to know who considers me a friend enough to actually care when I (don't) make journal posts.

      P.S. I can't believe that Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Cube was pushed back again until mid-December. Old news I know, but still. My avatar just keeps becoming more and more true. (You might have to look at it in detail to see my addition to the picture)

    • Damn you Data!

      12 years ago

      oberon227

      I had such a good streak of not posting to my journal going.

      Pay it Forward (forwarded!!)
      "Three people of my choosing will get three mods each. All you have to do is, if you get the mods, post a journal like this and give three mods each to three people. Yes, I know you will lose some mods. It's a sacrifice. This is a small insignificant way of making the world of our Rooster Teeth community a better place.

      I said "of my choosing" because I'm not going to give just anybody the mods. Just three of the few people I know and trust to keep this going."


      Since I have more mod points than I know what to do with, I'm going to up it to 5 per person just for fun. I should be giving these out to people anyway, but here's my excuse.
      Drums888: for your uniform
      Bookworm: for your awesome volunteer work
      Nixorbo: for being an old school Futurama-thread friend

      Now since I only have 6 people that watch me, what are the odds that any of you are going to see this? Including you Data. I bet you're not even going to come back and look.

      Life update: Got DDR for the PS2. Got a DS. Waiting for a Wii. School sucks. Lonely. Hungry.

    • The Little Bathroom of Horrors Part 2

      13 years ago

      oberon227

      So, I got trapped in my bathroom again tonight.
      If you look at my pictures you'll see a record of the destruction that ensued last time this happened.
      Unfortunately, I don't have a camera anymore or I would have had new pictures.
      This time though, I didn't have to break anything. My roommate was home, so she was able to take the pins out of the door hinge to release me. Took her a while though..... she needs to work out more.
      Tomorrow morning I'm going to request a new handle.

      EDIT: The handle keeps breaking. Last time, the latch wouldn't open when you turned the handle. This time it seemed like it wouldn't unlock. It just wouldn't turn.

    • That's it, I'm out

      13 years ago

      oberon227

      That's it!
      I'm out.

      Guess what came out today? The DVDs that Lucasfilm will be releasing of the original theatrical release of Star Wars aren't actually mastered from the original prints at all. They're going to be copied from an old LaserDisc!!
      As if it wasn't bad enough that he had to cram this shit down our throats to begin with, now he's just copying it from a LaserDisc.

      Well, you know what? I'm not buying it. Nope. I'm not. I have my VHS versions at home that I'll just keep and never watch (wouldn't want to degrade them) and that'll be it. I'm done George. No more money from me.

      P.S. I think the MPAA might have something to say about your copying LaserDiscs.

    • Fuck you, Mr. Lucas.

      13 years ago

      oberon227

      So, you're finally releasing the Original Trilogy on DVD just like we've been asking you to? But it's bundled with the new one you say? Sold Individually? For what I'm sure will be >$40 each?

      Fuck you.

      I bought the new trilogy over a year ago under good faith that it was the only version you were ever going to release. Because you told us that. You swore on a stack of Bibles (or Star Wars merch) that you would never release the old ones again. Because those "weren't the movies you wanted to make". I even bought them twice because you bastards released the new trilogy in old packaging with nothing to indicate that it was the new trilogy.
      And now you are releasing the old trilogy?? And you're "excited" to do so?

      Fuck you.

      I've had the same shit crammed down my throat for years now. I thought the only time I'd ever see the original trilogy was when I broke out the VHS player and watched the copy my parents saved from when I was an unborn child.

      And you know what the worst part is? I'm still going to buy it. And I hate myself for it.
      But I'm not buying it for you Mr. Lucas. And I'm not buying it for the new trilogy, because I already have that. And I'm not buying it for the old trilogy either because I already have that too. I'm buying it because the copy I have will decay and die over time. I'm buying this for my kids, my grandkids, and the human race.

      So, fuck you Mr. Lucas. I hope you die and rot in hell.

    • Friend Requests

      13 years ago

      oberon227

      So, apparently the "Please No Random Friend Requests" line in my profile didn't discourage anyone from requesting to be-friend me randomly anyway. So I turned it off.
      I know that there are about two of you out there screaming NNNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!! in your head right now, but too bad.
      That being said (not that it'll make a difference anyway. I'm not exactly the most watched person on RvB) here's a guidline to becoming my friend:
      1. If you have more than 100 friends, too bad.
      2. If you still want to be my friend, contact me in one of the threads I read. If you don't know which ones those are, too bad.
      3. If you have a problem with any of the above two rules, too bad.

      Well, there. So, all you goddamm friend whores out there? Too bad.

    • Off to Montreal

      13 years ago

      oberon227

      Well, I'm off to Montreal for one of the geekiest events I can image: The Computer Science Games!
      It's going to be a weekend of algorithms, coding, shell scripts, web interfaces, drinking, artificial intelligence, drinking, software engineering, drinking, and of course, drinking!

      So, while I'm gone: No spoiler talk in the Battlestar thread. I'm going to miss it while I'm going and I don't get a chance to see it probably until Monday night. Not cool.
      And no new episodes of RvB. But if this week's episode is any indication, I could be kidnapped for a couple of weeks and not miss anything.

      I'm just kidding. I still love you guys. Guys?

      No, he just threatened to neg-mod me, and a friend or two of his said "we'll help you." One of them claimed to have 645 mod points or something to come and neg-bomb me with. Then that friend came and read my journal and said, "Oh, well, now that I've seen both sides I guess he was a bit out of line." Then another friend of mine saw what I'd written in my journal and had just spoken with someone else that this guy had PM'd asking for mods, and he reported it all to a mod who, from what I hear, temp-banned the guy. So basically, I came out of the whole thing smelling like roses. I just hope he doesn't think I got him banned and try to start something again. I'd hate to have to crush him beneath my thumb.

      EDIT: No wireless? How will you survive?

      Actually, it did a system update when I first put it in as well. The disc must have something on it. I was a bit surprised for a moment.

      Got my own Zoidberg. Actually it's "And I'm his friend Jesus!" Zoidberg. I fought with the damn router for hours. Sometimes my laptop could connect, sometimes it couldn't. Sometimes my desktop, connected to the damn thing by a hard line wouldn't connect. The Wii never once managed to do it. So I took the router back to the store and bought the Serenity special edition DVD instead. When I can afford it I will buy a better quality router. Until then, I'll just have to deal.

      I've never managed to get my Wii to connect to the net. I bought a router specifically for that purpose, and it wouldn't work. I could buy one of those special Nintendo thingies, but if I'm gonna spend money on that I'd like it to work for my laptop too. So eventually I may be able to connect my Wii, but for now I don't think friend codes are gonna do me much good.
