There's this cursed abbey I have to clear out... but it's full of not just skeletons, but METAL skeletons.
Not fun at all, esp. when you have a pack of them chasing you through farmland.
I did get to kill this ninja who was stalking a knight. It was funny. The reason I found him was because he was sticking out like a sore thumb in his black ninja garb and all the farmers told me where they saw him :)
I'm cleaning out a dungeon, killing skeletons left and right.
I start going down this hallway and the camera pans down to these two skeletons talking about the fact that they're not hungry because they don't have stomachs.
Then one asks why they can talk if they don't have vocal cords.
So the other one says that he doesn't know, and wonders what exactly is keeping them together since they are just skeletons after all.
The first one then says, "Ah, I don't like thinking about these things. It leads to all sorts of existential problems."
Played about 4 hours or so of Splinter Cell tonight. Man, fun game. And it's not easy. I'm 7 missions into it so far (out of 10) but they can take around 4 hours or so to finish, so it'll be a decent length for an 'action' game. Cool storyline and great sneaking abounds.
Neat Ideas show on Buffy. I'm even more glad that I've started watching it (addictively) lately. Though I can't watch it new because I haven't seen much more than the first season and a half. Oh well. They'll all be out on DVD eventually :)
I also got a game called Divine Divinity. It came out last year and got pretty good reviews, but it's also on the 'Best Games That Nobody Played' list on Gamespot. I got it cheap though, so I'll give it a shot :)
And I had a good day off today, barring the mysterious disappearance of my Vanilla Coke. Watched a lot of Buffy. Read a bunch. Played a bit of videogames (but it was one of those accursed sunny days where the sun shines in JUST so and you can't see anything on the TV. Sigh).
Somebody broke into my house today and stole the Vanilla Coke I put in the fridge last night. I know I didn't drink it, because I just now had the can of regular coke I put in the fridge earlier in the week.
I think it's a conspiracy. A conspiracy to drive me MAD!
But first I have to finish Suikoden 3 before I can revel in all of these action games. I'm pushing 84 hours and still have a little while to go... sigh. Great game, but I'm getting to the point now where I just want it to end!
Well, I cracked (damn you Wal Mart and your incredibly cheap DVD prices!) and picked up Seasons 2 & 3 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Yeah, I'm turning into an addict. I blame Space TV for running the final episodes from last season (the 'Willow destroys the world' storyline) which were very good and got me hooked on the show.
That, and the very good Xbox game based on the show helped get my interest piqued again.
Season 3 is supposed to be the best of the show from what I've heard, so the fact that I think I've seen all of one episode (the season finale) is cool.
LotR Z "This foe is beyond any of you... his power Level has reached at least 30,000 after fighting every Dwarf in Moria. Ki Fhy to the gate Aragorn, you must lead them on!" The muscles beneath Gandalf'sGrey Cloak strained in anticipation of the coming battle.
Soon after, when they were nearly at the gate, the Balrog launched a surprise Ki attack, knocking down Borrmir and stunning Blazing Fist Gimli.
Gandfalf turned to face him. "Fool!" said he, I don't have time for this nonsense... "Pure Flame of Arnor Shield Wall Strike!" The massive energy wall sstreaked off towards the Balrog, who was knocked flying... though no-one was sure whether or not he had wings.
"Raaaaauuuugggg! Gandalf, I have not shown you my true power!
EB has a new print magazine out now called GMR (short for GaMeR) and it's actually a pretty good magazine. Minimal ads, good content and lots of good pictures (not grainy crap like a lot of stuff you see).
I like that it covers all platforms, including PCs, and that they've got it as their mission statement to only preview stuff that is going to be coming out within 4 months. They want to be more about actual content than just hype.
And $25 for a year subscription? Can't really go wrong with that, esp. with a 10% off used games incentive :)
Yuck. Power just went out here about an hour ago and finally came back on.
Luckily, it came back on just before Buffy! Woo! I've been watching it the last couple nights and it's got me sucked in. I think it's either last season or maybe even stuff from this season... I don't know. I don't tend to watch Buffy when it's on first run, but I do like the show. I just wish it wasn't on so stinkin' late!
Here is some interesting news about the chip that will be the guts of the Playstation 3. Not that it's coming any time soon. The chip itself won't be ready till 2004-2005 and they'll still have to make all the other dodads that'll plug into it. Still, it's neat to see the future of gaming and computing advancing so rapidly.
Well, I took the Geek Rating test and scored 75%. Here's what that means for me:
"You're on a particularly useless cusp known as "being a bit of a nerd". Nobody really trusts what you say about computers, but at the same time, they keep asking you really annoying questions that they could answer for themselves if they just spent five minutes thinking about it. You also have to spend a lot of time not having a life in order to keep your slightly inadequate skills up to date. You have a choice: work harder and learn more, or give up and start to enjoy life."
Well, I went skiing yesterday and had lots of fun when I was actually skiing. Unfortunately, going to Glen Eden on the last weekend of holidays and the day after the biggest snowstorm of the year (2003) wasn't a great idea. Ended up standing in line for longer than I was actually skiing. Oh well. At least I gave my new boots a whirl!
Ok. Now if this isn't the sneakiest way to sell Gameboys, I don't know what is.
"Interestingly, Nintendo reportedly has plans to make it impossible to play Pokemon Gamecube unless one of the recently released Pok�mon GBA games (Pok�mon Ruby or Pok�mon Sapphire) is connected to the GameCube via the GBA-GC link cable."
Ooo. I like my new template. The colours change! Hee hee...
I will probably go back to the Robot eventually. But for now I think I'll try some new templates out for a while. And if you're looking, the links are down on the right-hand side under the archives now :)
I'm going skiing tomorrow (well, today, I guess)... woo! Got my skiis tuned and sharpened and my brother is on his way over here first thing in the morning. And we just got a foot of fresh powder. Woot!
I wonder if Blogger has started updating my Blog yet. It hasn't seemed to have updated it for a few weeks. According to my own site records, I can view all the updates I've done since last Saturday, but when I load up the site itself, no updates. Wierd.
