in honor of the above mentioned things and the fact that i said i would write more and the fact that i am off today....... you guessed it! you get to hear from me! [:
well i have always been a fan of numbers. the sequences they create can be scary, funny, or just down right beautifully amazing. from fractals that please the eye, to exam papers that hurt the brain numbers are a central point in our universe and today is 9-9-09. now to be fair i'm more of an 11:11 kinda guy [have i written about that here?....] but a story i heard yesturday that applies to today has to be told. today, somewhere a customers little kid will turn 9... that is right 9 on 9-9-09. now if that end of days movie with Arnold is correct this kid might be the next antichrist, but that aside i think it was cool.
Next, Happy birthday dreamcast! this is mine with some custom light mods!!
oh how i wish i had more time to spend doing custom game console mods.
but anyway, that console really did change the way we saw gaming and was ahead of its time which i believe is showed in the fact that a few brave artists still make games for it. long live the memories of 4 player matches and soul caliber fights. i still remember getting in trouble [in college mind you, years after the dreamcast was canceled] for playing the sonic the hedgehog mini game on my dream cast vmu [which also got some custom leds i might add. sorry no pic] thank you sega for doing what you did to help make this passion what we know it as today. also, thanks for sticking around at least in the software world. i am not sure what we would do without you.

finally, happy birthday nerf. I have always been a fan of the elaborateness nerf puts into shooting your friends safely. take for example my latest and greatest catch..... check out this moster!
its belt fed, shoots 3 rounds a second, and if i ever get her straightened out i am sure that it would be the greatest safe-to-shoot-at-your-friends gun the world has ever seen. [next to what i hope will be the nerf gatlin gun. (drool......)] Happy birthday nerf keep up the good work of proving that guns [well your guns] can be safe, except for the occasional eye lose. [:
well enough about the day: to catch up from a previous post. my new slim is working great. because i backed up all the data from my original ps3 it wouldn't transfer my games to my new ps3. everything else transfered; pictures, saves, themes wallpapers, et cetera, just not my actual downloaded games. thank you sony store for the history list which allowed me to set up everything to download although i did find out there is a limit to the amount you can have queued at once. [: my 120 gig from the slim works great in my classic 60 and yes the restore to it restored my games to their rightful place on the original machine. i can now rock one for folding while i rock the other for batman arkham asyum.
Batman is a good old fashioned time that i have heard from several people is the best comic to game adaptation ever seen. i mean it for real when i say i feel like batman. sometimes i feel like the controls are a little wonky, but you have to deal with the "context sensitivity" [who here remembers the beginning of conkers bad fur day. [; ] of the crouching and climbing, or crouching and opening, or climbing over railings. [tip: double pressing "x" against a railing to climb over only rolls you into it ultimetly resulting in you either looking silly or getting riddled [no pun intended] with bullets. if you want to climb over or down, remember it is one press of the "x"]
Batman deserves all the praise that it gets. it looks great, plays wonderfully, and really draws you into the batman world. even if you have never been into batman, it is a rousing good time in the beat down arena. those theif/splinter cell/metal gear solid fans will even find some enjoyment in the sneaking around batman does as he swoops down and delivers justice from above, or below, or with the batclaw or batarang... or pretty much how ever he wants because he is batman and bad ass.

a solid BUY in my book! [and i don't ever say that]
