      ........ When you have a Quad Core, 3 gigs of ram and a GeForce 7800 GT.

      I know I haven't been on much lately. It's mostly because of my computer and winter break.

      What's everyone doing for Christmas? The New Year?

    • Vista.......

    • The year's almost over......

      11 years ago

      rocketcat

      ........ And I'm reflecting upon all the shitty things that have happened, both in my life, and in the world.

      This by far is my most stressful year of all on this planet. I've worked my ass off from the beginning of December last year, to now.

      Along with that, I, my family, have been having some financial problems. It's nothing big, only annoying. The cost of living in the State of California has gone up tremendously this year. The rent costs about $100 more, the phone bill nearly doubled, the gas, water and electric went higher and so did the cost of groceries. What the fuck is happening? Is it only me? Obviously not since I know a lot of other people who are having similar problems with finance. With that in mind, my mom wants to move to Seattle. I've never been to Seattle but would like to visit to see how things are. If the cost of living is cheaper there, I might move.

      Our country is going to hell. Or should I say, our empire. We have a chick, a black guy and a comedian running for president. Now what the fuck?

      I can't trust Hilary Clinton. She's trying too damn hard to please everyone around her. I can't trust someone who wants to be president that badly.

      Obama is okay, but that's all he is. He has no definitive angle that would make his campaign appealing, which is why Clinton is in the lead.

      And of course Stephen Colbert. He's a smart guy, I give him that. I would even trust him being president. But there's no way he's going to win if he only runs in the state of South Carolina.

      I can say so much more, but I gtg do things. I leave you with my new desktop.

      Mod points to everyone!

    • E For All Expo. I'm Back.

      11 years ago

      rocketcat

      I just want to get something straight. It wasn't as bad as most people are saying it was. Yes, to be honest, it was small. But it was good for consumers to get their hands on stuff first. To make a long story short, the whole thing was a novelty, it doesn't live up to the expo name.

      Regardless, it was still pretty cool. I was there for 4 full days. I was at the Video Games Live Concert Friday night, which I must say, is a fantastic showing. 4 hours of the greatest video game music ever played, Live. It was so awesome. I met Nolan Bushnell, David Hayter (voice of Snake, MGS series) , The Video Game Pianist, Fatal1ty and the crew from the Gametrailers Team, along with the PMS clan, just to mention a few.

      I also had the chance to play Brawl, Team Fortress 2, Super Mario Galaxy, Metal Gear Solid 4, Unreal Tournament 3, and games I can't even remember.

      So, since most people want to know about Brawl, I'll talk about it the most. To be quite honest, it's a bit different than Smash. One of the reasons why is because of the new controllers. You had the choice of either the WiiMote or the Classic Controller. I decided to use the classic. The Classic Controller however is a bit odd. It threw me off when I first held it because of the weight. It's way lighter than the Gamecube version, so people are going to have to get a bit used to that. The WiiMote in my opinion is far worse than the classic. Why? Well, instead of using the "X" button for attack, you have to use the 1 and 2 buttons, which are quite small, if you ever had the chance to use a WiiMote.

      Now about the characters. The strongest character in my opinion? Metaknight. He's like a strong Kirby with wings and a kick ass sword. His combos are strong and he can do a lot of them. Metaknight is a damn hard character to knock off a ring. He floats like Kirby, so whenever he gets thrown out, he just floats right back, which really pissed off and frustrated some people on the show floor. Every other character is good as well. Actually, any character is good, if you know how to use them. The gameplay this time around seems really balanced, far more balanced than Smash. It's also faster.

      That's all I can say in one day. I am freaking tired and I'm in need of serious rest. E For All was a great experience but surely not as great as E3.

      Glad to post this. Happy gaming. I'll keep you guys updated with more news along the week.

    • I Pimped Out My Desktop.... Among Things

      11 years ago

      untitled-2.jpg

      Nope, this is not Windows Vista. It's Windows XP. I just added a whole bunch of stuff into it to make it look cooler. See, XP can look better than Vista.

      And how is everyone doing? I'm so sorry if I haven't been on a lot lately. It's just that I have so much going on right now. My workload tripled the day I got out of summer and got back into the loop of things. Really stressful.......

      I've been busy with school, trying to juggle with 3 Advance Placement classes, 1 of which is AP Computer Science A. I'm getting the hang of Java right now, and it's actually pretty easy if you know the math and the commands.

      E For All Expo is just right around the corner now, I can't freaking wait. I got my passes 2 weeks ago and I just received my limited edition dog tags a couple days ago. I just wish that RvB will be there.

      Well, it's not like you guys care anyways. But I'm dying. Yes, I'm dying. I'm dying on this site of course. smiley2.gif I don't have enough time to get on anymore. I thought I would have held out or quit this site with a bang, but instead, I'm slowly losing people on my friends list, I'm neglecting posts, neglecting journals, and so I'm really sorry.......

      I can't repay those who are patient, or maybe I can.... I still have 241 mod points up for grab and I would love to give them away if I had the time. And so I bid you farewell for now. I have an essay to finish. Post in this journal and you shall receive a plentiful amount of mod points. smiley12.gif
