Well here it is. Someone lonely and sad enough has made an entire seven plus minutes video of 100% pure polygonal video games boobies. Enjoy!
"What" is my favorite word. Of all time. If I make a sentence without using the word "what" in it, something is wrong.
My precious vacation is coming to an end. In two days it's back to work. Lame.
Had an awesome time in Springfield. Played games, drove the streets, saw the people, got utterly sunburned at Knight's, ate lots of good food. Pretty much one of the best weeks ever.
I'm trying to be more social. In video games. So if you've got xbox live, my gamercard is on the front page. Add me and kill me repeatedly in Worms, Carcassonne, Gears of War, Chromehounds, or Perfect Dark Zero. I'm up for just about anything.
I got the demo for The Darkness on xbox 360 and it's pretty awesome. My only problem is that you're supposed to be playing a lot of time in the dark but I have the damnedest times finding doors even though everything is pretty kind of highlighted for you. But the whole demo is pretty well done and if I had $60 to flush it'd be in my hands right now. I like eating hearts with my tentacle buddies.
If you're a video game, then it was a pretty good week for you at the Hubbard's! Katie finished The Warriors, played a shitload of Carcassonne on Live, and learned how to play Gears of War, which is remarkable because she hates action games and I'm a terrible teacher when it comes to them because I just want to kill her repeatedly.
I finally finished Gears of War myself (after owning it for six months), played a shitload of Mercenaries, played a shitload of The Warriors (when I wasn't spoiling the game for myself by watching Katie play), played some Gears of War online for the first time, and got some time in with Unreal Tournament 2004.
Overall this is probably my favorite way to spend a week off.
Not a lot though. Just kind of rearranged the sidebar. And added a spot for my gamercard.
It's true. I don't know how I came by this copy of Red Faction because I know I didn't buy it but I own it. And I've played it. A lot. I've beaten it even. It's easily one of the most tedious and uninteresting first person shooters ever.
And despite it's multitudes of problems (a "fully destructible" world that isn't all that destructible, the ridiculous bad AI, the way none of the enemies feel pain, the weak weapons, etc.) I'll still find myself looking at it wistfully, the discs themselves begging me to install them. Sometimes I can resist. Usually I can't. I have to install and play this shitty game to remind myself just how bad it is. I have to. I have no choice in the matter.
I did it again two days ago. Installed, patched, played. It lasted for about fifteen minutes. Up until I got to an enormous driller that for whatever reason couldn't drill through the walls of the cheap little security checkpoint so I took it straight through the menacingly arching beams of electricity only to find my enormous driller exploding and me dying. That was about all I could take of Red Faction this time. It's already off my hard drive.
