    • I was in the paper, lol

      11 years ago

      stickx

      Yeah, my husband (Rikturscale) was interviewed by a reporter in regards to the Halo 3 release. The reporter was a costumer at my husband's comic shop and called to see if any of the guys knew anything about the Halo games... the phone was promptly handed to my husband. During the interview Rik mentioned that he played Halo with his wife and I guess the reporter found that interesting because in our part of the article (he interviewed 2 other ppl) he wrote about the 'husband and wife Halo team who share everything together except for their TV screens', etc. Yes, we game in separate rooms on separate TVs and each have our own 360 for the optimum gaming experience, lol. The reporter also mentioned how we would both be in line at midnight to each get our copies of the game (the article came out the day before the release) and of course we were.

      Now the funny thing is that I had no idea my husband did this until the day the paper came out. He calls me and tells my that I want a paper. I'm like I don't want the stupid paper waddaya talkin about. He goes, no really... you want a paper. I'm like, why do I want a paper? He says because you're mentioned in it. I'm like what????? He says go to the first page of the Entertainment section, so I did and there it was... an awesome picture of MC and a headline about the Halo 3 release and then the article. I was sooo excited! To be mentioned on the same page as my favorite game... I could have died, lol. Then I go back to work (I was on lunch when he called about the paper) and three ppl came to me and asked if I knew I was in the paper. So now I have the article hanging in my locker at work between my Gears of War magazine clipping and a small Appleseed poster. XDXD

    • Done with Oblivion...

      13 years ago

      stickx

      Well, 180 hours later and I'm done with the game... became head of all the guilds, became the Champion of Cyrodil (the end battle stuff was soooo awesome!!) , killed lots of helpless deer, added a sentient weapon mod that was just great, added cats to all the towns (yeah for moddable PC version), bought every house and collected tons of Nirnroot. I'm done! Theres more I can do with caves and ruins but I think I'm gonna step away from the keyboard. By the end of things, I was able to sneak attack enemies for 6 times damage standing right in front of them.... I had a 30% camo ring and then a Cloak spell that added 75% camo so my camo was well over 100% so as long as I was sneaking nothing could hear or see me... so I would hit creatures or people and they would just stand there "Oh, it must have been the wind." Pretty neat. The camo trick also helped me get all the way through the thieves guild completely bounty free. :-). But alas, I am done... now to get back to my life...

    • OBLIVION RULES!!!

      13 years ago

      stickx

      Holy crap, I've been playing Oblivion for about three weeks now and I can't believe just how awesome it is. The graphics, the charactor set up options, the freedom of doing whatever you want before the main quest stuff, it's all just unbelievable. I'm currently playing a level 20 spellsword cat person (Khajjitt) and I just can't wait to get up in the morning to get on the computer and go questing or even to just run around hunting deer with my bow or picking flowers and mushrooms for alchemic potions.
      I've closed 4 Oblivion gates, went through about 3 or 4 ancient elven ruins, only one of which had an artifact and a varla stone in ti, but they were all fun anyway. (and loaded with the little magica stones.) I don't want to get into plot stuff because plenty of people are still playing it but I will say that I've gotten to a point where I can enchant my own armour, so I enchanted myself from head to toe in bonus strength armour so my strength is like 129 right now and I can carry about 700 lb, which is great for treasure hunting. (especially if add feather spells...then I can carry around 800lb!)
      If you are currently playing this game, let me know what you think about it.... the only thing I can think of that I wish it had was fishing (like in Everquest), then I would never leave the house.... so it's probably good that it doesn't have fishing, I guess :-)

    • Florida is awesome!

      13 years ago

      stickx

      Me and my hubbie went to Florida for a few days for a little vacation. We went fishing for a few hours on all four days, it was awesome. I caught two red fish, one of which weighed about six pounds. That doesn't sound like much but it was a fight getting that thing in the boat... after that I was almost afraid to catch anymore fish! We went out on our uncles boat three of the four days and the last day we fished off the Sunshine Skyway. Man I wish it didn't get so hot there... I would so move to St. Petersburg in a heartbeat if not for the summer heat. Instead, my husband and I will eventually start looking at the coastal regions of the Carolinas and maybe even Savannah, Ga. If anyone has a good suggestion of where along the coast would be nice to live, let me know. ;-)

      So, I really think that teachers at universities should have to take cognitive function tests every six months after the age of 55.
      Once again, I've ended up with a senile old guy who can't remember stuff that happened two minutes ago let alone what we went over in the previous class. He can't understand a word we say and we can hardly understand him. He keeps changeing test dates because he can't remember the dates he originally told us and apparently he can't read his own writing! He even told us we had a test on March 7th....yeah, that's in the middle of Spring Break. We told him that and it took him ten minutes to figure out when the actual test day was even though we had a syllabus (that he was barely following) right in front of us with the correct day on it. He started going over the wrong chapter and had to be told we were on chapter 3, not 7, then it took him 20 minutes to get situated with the correct chapter notes before he finally started lectureing. What sucks about that is the fact that our chapter tests are based mostly on lecture notes according to the syllabus. Plus it's just sad watching him muddle around being confused half the time. It's horrible, I'm about to join the multitude of students who are going to the higher-ups to try to get this guy removed.
      Other than that, things are great! ;-)

    • Halo concert!

      Check this out!!

      abum.com/show/11885/halo-concert.wmv

      OMG! I would have LOVED to have had a band teacher that let us play video game scores!!! I had to learn and play those all on my own. Sonic the Hedgehog sounds much cooler on a keyboard than a flute, by the way. So does Shadowgate.

      If the concert does not pop up for you, just go to abum.com and scroll down the list of videos until you see Halo concert. It's great!

      It's been fun goofing off this past few weeks, ripping up and getting ripped up by my friends in Halo 2, but now it's time to get my head in the game again. I'll be taking four classes instead of three while working part time at the veterinary clinic. I tried to pick a fluff class for the forth so I picked Socialogy...when I went to get the book for the class I started to worry a bit because it looked a little less fluffy and a little more reading intesive than I was hoping for. Oh, well...last semester went really well so I hope one more class won't throw it all off. We'll see...

    • Hockey!!

      stickx

      I went to my first hockey game last night...It was the Thrashers versus the Panthers at the Phillips arena and it was GREAT!!!! I've always wanted to go to a game and a friend called me last week and said he had two extra tickets...so my and my hubbie were like, hell yeah. Unbeknownst to us, they were suite tickets, so we get there and we're trying to find our seats and we end up in this carpeted room with a ton of food and drinks and awesome seats overlooking the ice...we could see everything!!! I've never had so much fun at a sports event as I did last night...feeling it a bit this morning though, but that's ok, it was well worth it!

      The Thrashers won 2 to 1 over the Panthers. GO THRASHERS!!!

    • All A's!!!

      Holy crap!!! I just got my grades back after finals and I made an 'A' in English, Chemistry and Chemistry Lab!! English wasn't too hard but I've been having to work my butt off in the Chem classes to get good grades, (sporting a pinched nerve in my neck for my trouble... luckily I have a great chiropractor.) It was so worth it....especially if I can eventually qualify for some decent grants...that would be sweet!! I'm going to take on four classes next semester instead of three...try to speed things up a little...hopefully I can keep making good grades...we'll see.

    • 360 ROCKS!!!

      13 years ago

      stickx

      I ordered the Xbox 360 for my husbands birthday last May...I remember when I did that, the cashier at EB Games said I got the last one, which seemed strange to me since it was so early. Well, when my husband went to pick it up the other day, it turned out that I reserved the last $399 package with all the bells and whistles...they only shipped three of those and we got one because of when I ordered it...so my husband is all like "OMG, you frickin ROCK!! Thank you, thank you." and I'm really happy but I didn't do anything special...it was just chance and where on the calender his birthday fell that made me order it when I did.

      My husband works at a comics and games store where they have a giant HD TV. (they also have four smaller tvs set up for tournements...that's where I play all my multiplayer Halo games) He hooked up the 360 to that huge TV and OMG, Call of Duty 2 looks and sounds frickin sic on that set up.

      Just a funny aside, me and a bunch of peeps from the comic store went out to eat after playing COD2 for a while....we were seated in an area where there was a 3 foot barrier between us and a pathway to the kichen and restrooms...there were some kids that were playing in that little hallway and they kept popping their heads up just slightly above the little wall. One of my friends, points this out to the rest of us and says "I feel like I should be shooting them..." We laughed because it really did remind us of the germans in the game poking thier heads up over a barrier to shoot at us...good times!
