1: I nearly killed myself when I was about 4 or 5. Growing up a had an awesome GI Joe tent. I took it apart one day and I was playing with one of the plastic tubes. I took one of the tubes with me into the tub and I was filling my mouth with water and then using the tube like a straw to shoot water every where. I stood up to get out of the tub and and fell face first with the tub in my mouth. I nearly punctured my brain. My parents rushed me to the hospital to have them remove the tub from my mouth which I had clamped down on... it was pretty scary. I still have a scar in the back of my mouth from it.
2: I'm an Eagle Scout. I used to be very involved with the Boy Scouts back in my home town. The head of our scout troop was/is a retired Marine (Vietnam vet). He has friends and contacts at Bases all over the place and he has taken many kids on base to do cool stuff. I've been able to sit in an M1A1 tank. I've stood next to a missile silo on a nuclear sub... it was loaded with a city killer. That's a very scary thing. Camping is one of my favorite things to do. Unfortunately I don't do it very often anymore.
3: I love surfing, sailing and pretty much anything you can do on the water. We have a pool at the house I grew up in. I used to be able swim about 5 laps underwater.
4: I used to do Triathlon training. I would bike for 30 miles or so, swim about two miles, and run for about an hour... I used to be in great shape. Not so much now.
5: I don't speak Spanish. I should learn to...
6: I like people with odd body mods... it's fascinating to me. Like that chick with the forked tongue that was making the rounds on the internet a while back. That kind of forced change to the human body is just... well, like I said, fascinating to me. Also, Lizard Man.
7: I am a compulsive buyer. I buy more games than I beat. In fact I've bough a lot of games that I've only played once. I've bought PC games before I had a PC that could run them. I am a consumer whore D:
8: I play the Piano. I can play the drums... a little. I like to sing... but I usually sing falsetto. It's more fun that way. 80's hair metal is the best for this.
9: I like to dance. Seriously. I'll just do a little dance when I'm really happy... or hyper.... or drunk... which is almost all the time.
For those that don't read the front page or pay attention to DS games MOON is a FPS made by
Their previous title was the FPS Horror game for the DS Dementium.
MOON uses an upgraded version of the same engine Renegade Kid developed for Dementium. It runs silky smooth and the control feels very similar to a keyboard and mouse set up on the PC (especially if you use a thumb stylus. You play the part of a Space Marine sent to the moon to investigate some weird sh*t. After about ten minutes of being on the MOON the weird sh*t goes "OH NO YOU DIDN'T" and F*$ks up a lot of dudes. You, being the balls out space marine, go to "recon" the area and find out what happened to you buddies. "Recon" must be Space Marine for "blow that sh*t up!" because you end up shooting first and not asking any questions afterwords. And it's all good because this game is really fun.
Renegade Kid has learned from their mistakes with Dementium and taken a page out of Metroid's play book by adding a sweet map system and Save room system. So as you progress through an area you'll come across map rooms that reveal the level ahead of you and soon after the map room you'll find a save room soon after that. For the first hour you really don't see that many different kinds of enemies. Mostly floaty death balls that either shoot one ball of kill at your or a triple burst of destroy balls.
After you complete the first "level" you are given access to your Wort-.. SpaceBuggie and you get to motor around on the MOON's surface and shoot things with a big ass gun. It controls very similar to Halo's Warthog.
So far I am really enjoying this title. I would recommend it to anyone that has a DS and likes action games.
Hai Guyz! I just wanted to let anyone and everyone that I'll be hosting a few tournaments of Wipeout HD tomorrow for FNF. Race time begins at 8:00PM E.
I'm thinking about setting it up with two or three 6 track tournaments and ending it with a crazy huge 12 track tournie :D
The more the better! I've raced against just one other person a lot in this game and it's still fun, but the best is having a full eight players. SO if you have Wipeout HD and you're free, then hop in and play.
Late Sunday night after PAX closed it doors. A small group of us decided to make our way to a local strip club. We wanted pictures of a stripper with DToid stickers on her body.
After I had sweet talked by waitress and tipped my stripper I pulled out three beautiful robot stickers and requested that she place them on her body (the stripper's body... although the waitress was probably a stripper too). They were all about it, but could not do the deed on stage (that's what I really wanted). So instead they walked in back to the stripper locker and gave us these two wonderful shots:
