Not my Turning Point gaming Rig



I know it doesn't look like much, but it makes a mean hot dog. I'm not really sure of the specs, i think its got a few quad cores, maybe some giga-flops. Honestly i'm pretty sure this thing has more power than the turning point rig. Still it would be nice to have backup rig in case this one ever breaks down.   read

FUCK YOU MICROSOFT


Anyways, now thats out of the way, i called microsoft today about a disc unreadable error i keep getting with assassins creed and oblivion. This sometimes happens randomly depending on how my xbox is feeling this day. Today i'm playing AC and i decide that i'm sick of this bullshit and i decide to call microsoft.

I had called them once before about the same issue, and it seemed to have been fixed for the most part. The person who helped me out was extremely friendly and had set me up for a free repair and such.

I call today and they say that my warranty was out of date and that they had to charge me 100 bucks to fix the drive. I told them that because the problem was never fixed before that they should honour their previous repair. They told me that they were "sorry i felt that way" and said that the repair was still 100 dollars. I told them to go fuck themselves, they have horrible customer service and that they should really take an example from nintendo's absolutely exceptional customer service.

(in the recent past one of the buttons on my DS stopped working. I called them, they SENT ME A NEW DS, i take the new ds out of the box, put my old DS in the box, and send it back. From there they gave me an additional 2 year warranty on my new one)

So fellow dtoiders all i have to say is FUCK XBOX, PC GAMING FOR LYFE!   read

Games that COULD have been awesome: Reboot(ps1)

Iím really not sure how many people actually tried this game. But for a ps1 game is was mediocre. Then again, everyone and their mother had their own official ps1 game.

Introduction
In Reboot, the main gameplay was to play as bob and fly around on a zipboard while finishing basic timed tasks, such as go get that key to get to the next level, or go mend that tare (with glitch FTW). The weapons system would include a blaster gun (which I have no idea where bob got that, because for the first 2 seasons I never saw a single gun in the entire game. Also, glitch would also carry a few different powerups that could be used if you had enough ammo for it. When you werenít doing arbitrary tasks on a time limit, you would be watching cinematics that actually look like they were made just for the game (which is pretty cool).


<whereíd he get that thing!?!>

So what? This sounds like an average ps1 game, whats wrong?í

The problems - how to maybe fix it

1. Walking: inexistent
The main problem was not the gameplay objective or the weapons (they were actually kind of cool). The main problem was that you cant get off your zip board! EVER! The game didnít make walking in any way. Anyways if they added the ability to switch between zip board and walking so you could do other things, like walk into dots diner, maybe interact with reboot world.



2. The infamous Reboot game cubes: disappointing
Alright so I believe there is 1 game cube throughout the entire game, and It couldnít be anymore disappointing. Bob does not get a different costume, and the actual world looks no different then outside of the actual cube! The only thing that makes you know that this IS a purple thing dropping from the sky in the cinematic and the fact that a FEW enemies have little costumes on

3. Too far from the actual show
If they just made the plot of the game megabyte making some superweapon and the reboot gang trying to stop him, it would work a lot better. I thinks thatís what they tried to go for, but instead, you go through everywhere from lost angles to the dump/junkyard? You eventually end up fighting megabyte, but you donít really know why?


4.Not enough this guy!
Lets face it, if this guy was 40 feet tall, and you got to fight him, the game would almost be worth it.


5. Made By EA when they still used that writing, u know what Iím talking about

The last problem I really have to put out there is that this game wasnít even bad enough to be funny! It actually looked like EA tried to make this game good, and just failed horribly (hmm sounds like a trend with EA).   read

Confirmed for Brawl: Penises in Pictochat!!?

Pictochat is apparently the new level in super smash bros, by the looks of the pictures, it seems like it will actually be a pretty fun level. Also the pictochat drawings look pretty accurate to the real thing! (especially the 3rd one)





**EDIT**, i just got this right after posting

Samorost - Unique, artistic, flash game reminding me of the neverhood.

If you havn't already tried samorost-1 and samorost-2, please go and try them right now. Pretty much its just a point, and click puzzlish flash game where the object of each level is to transport your little trippy man from one screen to the other.



Its unique, mellow artistic touch makes this game not only relaxing, but it brings me back to the good old times of 2D puzzle adventures of the 90's.



Also, the puzzles arent too hard that you shouldn't ever get too stuck, but alot of them are strange and humourous too.


Also it reminds me of another game i really loved.
10 POINTS WHO CAN GUESS WHAT IT IS, HERES A HINT:



Anyways in Conclusion, if you havn't tried Samarost, enjoy.

Samarost-1

Samarost-2


If you have played samarost, go re play your favourite 90's adventure game. Then go get angry when they tried to make it 3D and failed. (cough... cough... monkey island)   read
