EA skate. Bail videos... Where the hell have you been?

Hey peeps, what's up? Yeah, I haven't posted a blog in months, and I have no explination as to why.

To make up for it, I have three new(ish) bail videos for you guys!

This last one is from a multiplayer session:

It's all mine! w00t!

Just a quick note - as of today I am the full-time midday guy on one of our local stations!

Yay!

EDIT - Sorry... I guess I should have posted this originally...

The station is 97.3 JOE FM, located in Saginaw, MI.

Our state has a HORRIBLE economy and I more or less landed my dream job.

One of my first jobs they gave me that doesn't pertain to being on-air is fixing the horrid website.   read

Trying to replace my 360...

As some of you may remember, I was forced to sell my 360 a few months ago. I REALLY want to get another one (damnit I need to play skate!), but even though I'm starting a new full-time job next Monday, it's doubtful that I will have the money for one anytime in the next few months.

What do you think the odds would be that I could get 100 people to give me $4.50 through PayPal?   read

How did Dtoid get Screech (sorry Thornnn... Dustin Diamond) to shill for them?

Activision Replacing Bungled Wii Guitar Hero III Discs; Prepping for DLC

Earlier this week I contacted Activision asking them about fixing the audio, adding Co-Op Quickplay, and downloadable content for the Wii version of Guitar Hero III. At first all I received was the generic answer of not talking about unreleased patches and to keep checking the website for news. However today, I got an actual response.

--------------------------------------------------------------

We recently became aware that some consumers have not been able to enjoy the full audio output in the Wii version of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. We are currently working with Nintendo and are planning to issue an improved audio experience in future versions of the game. We expect to have re-mastered discs available by early 2008 and we will be offering consumers replacement discs at no cost once they become available.

Downloadable content for the Wii is something we are working very hard on getting in place for the new year. There is no definite timetable in place but we are hoping it will be soon.

Should you have any further inquiries, please contact Activision customer support at www.activision.com/support. We thank all of our customers for their support and patience

--------------------------------------------------------------

While I am glad that they are fixing it in a way that everyone will have access to, it really stinks that we have to wait until sometime into 2008 for it to happen.

As for the DLC, bring it on! I at least need to be able to play The Devil Went Down to Georgia in single player quickplay.

I am still waiting for an answer to the question of fixing Co-Op Quickplay, and as soon as I get one, I will keep everyone updated!   read

GameCrazy Goes Bankrupt, why do I get a letter?

When I checked my mail today, I got something rather interesting. When I was looking at the envelope, I figured it was junk mail... quite possibly another credit card offer. When I opened it, before I read anything, it looked to be a letter from a collections agency.

After taking the time to look it over, it was a letter to inform me of Movie Gallery, Inc., the company that owns GameCrazy filed for Bankruptcy a couple of weeks ago, and if they owed me any money, I need to go to a meeting in Virginia in early December.

I worked there for about 2 months before I couldn't take the store manager's blatant fanboy-ism (If it wasn't Sony, he would try to talk you out of your purchase to buy Sony), but I was paid for my time. So, why the hell am I getting a letter?   read

On new computers and broken 360s

So, as you may remember, almost 2 months ago, my computer died on me, and then two weeks ago, my 360 decided do give me the red ring of death... right before Guitar Hero III was released.

Well, after being forced to sell some 360 games (GHII and Orange Box :(... more on Orange Box in a minute though), I had enough for GH III on the Wii. I am very happy with the purchase, but not happy that I had to sell off games to get it. Oh well, I still have a couple more weeks until I get my 360 back, and I still have Halo 3, skate., and Beautiful Katamari when it does arrive. I needed more games for my Wii anyway. And now with my 360 being out of commission, I finally have the time to pour into Twilight Princess, a game that I've had since Day 1 and haven't given myself the proper amount of time to play.

Anyway, the reason I didn't have any money is because I finally ordered a new PC from newegg.com. Of course, when it got to me 2 days later, the damn motherboard was dead, so I had to send it back. I'll have my replacement on Tuesday, nearly 3 weeks after I had originally placed the order. The good thing here though is that I should be able to purchase the PC version of the Orange Box. I needs me some Portal and TF2!

Okay, I'm done rambling on.   read

Why I love working in Radio

Aside from being the PR Manager and a writer at DigitalSomething.com, I am also a part-time DJ at a local radio station.

Last week, I was moved from the country station (THANK GOD) over to the "whatever" station. This week, I have been filling in for the midday girl while she was out sick.

Anyhow, our station is all digital, and is controled by a touch-screen based system. Well, today, 5 seconds after I started a song, I sneezed on the screen and it fired off the next song. It was "Never Gonna Give You Up" by Rick Astley.

I just RICK ROLL'D about 7000 people.   read

The loss of a great companion.

Today I have suffered a great loss.

While I was creating my skater in preparition of playing my review copy of THPG, my Xbox 360 beeped at me and locked up.

I didn't really think anything of it, untill I tried to turn it back on.

That's when I saw them. The three evil little lights on the front of the system.

So much for playing any new games before Christmas!

I'm going to go cry now.   read

Portal Ending Song - "Still Alive" *Possible Spoilers*

This is seriously the best ending song EVER.

Also, thank YouTube for not being able to read (or even see for that matter) the lyrics.

Anyway, enjoy!
