Rhythm you either have it..or your DS goes through a window

I hate when I get into a game that is simple on so many levels that it shouldn't grab my attention at all. Poke, flick, waggle.. there the end of controls have a good time doing that? Good now fail again and again. Learn what it's like to be happy to be OK. Cause honestly. Okay is good enough. The game is a retarded combination of Warioware and Elite Beat Agents but I could beat both of those a lot easier. So until I finish all of these game perfectly I'll be rhythming it a boss.

PS I know rhythming isn't a word

PSS I don't care   read

Nintendo America..why must you fail me

Honestly the only game I have truly been looking forward to coming out on the Wii...isn't..and why? because Nintendo America wants more shovel-ware. Thanks a ton. Fatal Frame IV. It's not the best of game series but it's a series that has kept my attention enough to have me go through it on normal and hard just to see more. First adaptation for the Wii and they cock block the American market. Why? Cause honeslty who hasn't been that wingman that cock blocked their's fun I guess but you still come out of the situation as a dickhead. Meh, I guess I might get it after Wii Fit 5 or barbies adventure 5.   read

So so close but not quite

I have found my old ps2 memory card, I have found my saves from the days that I couldn't be stopped in any game till the last 15 minutes or so. Devil May Cry 1 and 3, Deus Ex, Baldur's Gate, Maximo, Ico, Xenosaga, Rygar, Dragon Quest 8, Final Fantasy XII, Prince of Persia Warrior Within, So many games that were so close to being beat, a boss.. a final level, a side quest. So little left of the game and I'm done with having their ghosts hanging over my shoulder, I have spring break coming up. I have 3 days off in a row. During those three days, I will destroy my need to ever look back at my PS2. I also know I had such gaming ADD because there were so many games to play back then, now with the price of games and the sad quality of most titles coming out, I have the time and desire to go back and ruin my old games. Time to make my ps2 melt.

Oh and screw this game, fight a bunch of monsters throughout the game and then they step you up to fighting a GOD! Thanks for the stepping stone of hobgoblin to that boss fight. Like telling a child congratulations on winning his schoolyard brawl and then covering him in Barbecue Sauce and pitting him against Mike Tyson. I'm going back to beat that freaking game too. Oh and yes I have the worst luck in picking cards at the end even if I did perfect on each stage I would always miss the rare card.... Is PS2 and Gamecube considered Retro gaming yet Also has anyone else had a bad streak of gaming ADD?   read

Tastes good needs more salt

The battle is between two “wolves” inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

Pick which one you decide to feed.   read

Exhaustion and gaming

I am sitting here falling asleep at my computer when I thought to myself what have I done in the world of games while asleep. So I thought I'd make a small list and see what comes of it, and if anyone reads it I'd like to hear comments of any of your narcoleptic triumphs. These are just in the order I think of them not in a time order.

I forget which guardian force it was, but active time battle systems and my tendency to fall asleep at 4 in the morning in the middle of combat during RPGs made me go back to a previous save time and time again in Final Fantasy VIII after I died in my sleep. Thankfully after a long long gaming marathon of VIII and having not saved in a 5 hours I found myself waking up in the middle of a battle with 2 of my guys dead and only Squall standing up with 2 HP left when one of my Guardian Forces came in killed the enemy and saved my ass before I had the chance to realize what was going on... I wish I could give more detail on this one was a long time ago.

Ah, WoW, something so many people have lost days, months, and years of their lives too. The only game that made me ostracize myself so much from every non-gamer I knew that I came out of it with a blank slate and a fresh start on life with no old friends to bring me down, cause I had lost most of while getting my priest to 60..or my warlock to 60..or my 3 fighters to 60.... Why 3 fighters? ....I don't know... They were fun. Anywho this was a long time ago in the world of WoW, I a regular level 60 Warlock before the expansions that opened my eyes to the repetiveness that is WoW, was farming for a crusader enchant recipe for my guild for a good 2 hours, using the down time between respawns to write a paper on the importance of being productive as a school assignment, got a good grade on it..ain't that sad, passed out after seeing my succubus slap her ass at me for the 30000th time, an hour later I wake up to see a glowing corpse in front of my character, I right click, pick up the crusader enchant recipe and was on my merry way. Calling my enchanter friend to tell him the story and get yelled at in return for being the luckiest sleeper ever... Of course with WoW I had my fair share of falling asleep while running and waking up to many fatigue deaths.

Gears of War 2.. I've beaten this game.. I don't know what the hell happens in the ending, or who the boss was. I just remember it being 4 AM and waking up to the credits of the game. I plan on going back sometime soon and actually seeing the end, but last thing I remember was flying on a little horsie trying to avoid bombs, I've been told that's close to the end but I'd really like to see the actual end.

I'm gonna end here cause I didn't realize I'd make such a story for each one and I'm already tired writing so I'm afraid of what it might feel like to read it.   read

Gaming habits

I have to get back into my old gaming habits, I used to have my addictions, I used to spend a day saying I'm just going to beat the next level in this game and 8 hours later I had the game beaten. Now I say I'm just gonna play this level in this game and 20 minutes later.. the level is done and I am done. I wonder have games changed? Or have I changed? Is it that games are going downhill or that my expectations for games are rising with the price tag I have to pay for them? I lean towards most games going dowhill, I think, because I can still go back to my old favorites and play them for hours on end. Breath of Fire IV, Final Fantasy X, Dragon Warrior for the nintendo, any Zelda game. But new games just..have lost something to me. If it weren't for Left 4 Dead I would assume my old gaming self was dead but I can still settle down for a night and forget about school and work for 4 hours while playing with other people to that game. Fallout 3 let me down, I play it more out of my sense of duty to complete a game rather then to see what happens, that really makes me sad. Soul Caliber 4 let me down, I beat each characters campaign and it was done to me, sure that satisfies the needs of a fighter but I don't ever have the desire to go back to it like I did Soul Caliber 3 with the amount of customization and fun it had. I don't know, I'm on no sleep, a bit of excitement, and a strong desire to rant. I definitely jumped around but I got my thoughts out there and I will clarify them and expand on them when I have the opportune moment.   read
