    In regards to the title, Kirby's final smash is cheaper, so fuck anyone who says otherwise.

    Hope to see you all tonight!


    I've seen alot of gaming rooms on this site, and alot of them are really packed with nothing but gaming stuff. From the walls to the shelves, it's pretty immediately clear that a lot of the owners of those rooms enjoy surrounding themselves with gaming images and stuff. And while I consider myself absolutely obsessed with everything and everything gaming, I tend to find myself not indulging in the large collector's editions and posters on my wall. Instead, I like to keep my room as a simple, yet effective way for me to game. So why don't I show you through my humble abode.



    Here is my shelf. I've only reorganized it recently, it used to be a cluster fuck of PC boxes, books, papers, and stuff. Now though, I've gotten it to where its a nice shelf to stack my games for easy access. I don't have a digital camera, i had to use my cellphone for all these pictures, so the game boxes are probably too blurry for you to read, so I have a list of the games and stuff on my shelf here, and it goes left to right from top to bottom. Don't feel the need to reed every game here, this is a long list so please skip it if you want to see the rest of it now.

    And this ends my tour. Honestly, I wish I could show more cool things, but thats the point of the humble room. I have my stuff to play games with, and not much else. However, I hope you enjoy this look into my room, and sorry for the long post because I felt compelled to give you the list of games. I'm just so damn proud of 'em!

    I really REALLY like the jet set radio series. It's an accomplishment in great art style, music, gameplay, and just overall vibe. In the end, the game is about one thing : tagging. You skate around and you spray graffiti on the world. What you might not know about the game, however, is that spray paint is also a DEADLY WEAPON. Time and time again you will find yourself pitted against the Rokkaku Police Force with nothing but your paint can. At that time you will need to spray your tags on the backs of the police, ruining their dull gray world so much that they can no longer go on and try to arrest you.



    In the first game of the series, Jet Grind Radio, the police were not direct enemies. They were only there to disturb you and slow you down before you ran out of time, a concept thrown away in the sequel. As a result, it was in the players best interest to run away and deal with another area and come back after the police had scattered around. This was mostly due to the fact that if you hit a large tag which required you to do motions, the police could interrupt you. They were truly controller snapping annoying in those times.



    As I said previously, in the sequel they were quite different. When they showed up, they barricaded around you and forced you to fight. And that was when you had to truly just take them on head first. The Rokkaku Police are truly worthy enemies because of how ballsy they are. As a teenager on skates riding around they have no problem flinging themselves at you and grabbing on. They continue to march towards you effortlessly even while you boost into them and knock them on their backs. More annoying then the grunts of the force however, were the captains.



    Ah yes. Onishima and Hayashi. Both wield magnum pistols (with rubber bullets of course!), both are a bit crazy and dead set on taking you down. They hit harder than the others, and just wont stop attacking you. In Onishimas case, he just wants to get his job done, and is slightly more respectable. Hayashi on the other hand will stop at nothing to get to you, even if it means hurting his own police force! A good example is when he has no problems sending TANKS AND HELICOPTERS at teenagers to NEARLY kill them. Or when he uses these...



    A mech and a train! He attacks you with a TRAIN. The guy is clearly a nutjob and truly is an enemy to contend with. In the end everyone of these vehicles are destroyed by gumming up their works with graffiti, OF COURSE. In the end, the police are a constant threat in the jet set radio series, and deserves our respect and spray paint in the face. We salute you, Rokkaku Police Force!




    Donkey Kong knows the score.

    Hey guys its been a while. Thanks to a temp job of mine we took a while off, and then last week we actually played but I was too lazy to do a post. HOWEVER, the official smash bros fnf post is back this week with EXTRA AWESOME. Or something. Anyways, if you want to play you can follow these EASY TO FOLLOW STEPS.

    ONE: GET SKYPE.
    TWO: Copy down my brawl code and add it inside of smash brothers before the designated time of play.
    THREE: Make a comment in this blog INCLUDING YOUR BRAWL CODE AND SKYPE NAME.
    FOUR: Be online when it comes to the fight, and I will message you in skype when it's time.

    So my left 4 dead disc is slightly scratched. Its my brothers fault, his xbox was the one who scratched it in the first place. So what part of the disc got scratched? The levels? The sound? The humans? Oh no, it was the zombies. Their textures, specifically. As a result, my game takes an assload of time to load maps. So what exactly happens to the zombies? Look below to find the answer.



    What happens is this. An occurence I've come to know as "TV Static zombies". In my version of left 4 dead, I imagine that the zombie out break started when a huge electrical explosion caused nearby people to be infected with radio waves, and somehow their skin and clothing turn up like this. Ridiculous, but its the world I am forced to play in.



    This doesnt happen all the time however. As you can see here, sometimes the occasional texture will make its way through, which is even funnier because the rest of the body didn't. You might think think this would give me an unfair advantage, but i can see them no better because of their textures. It doesnt make them brighter in dark places, so I get surprised by them all the same as you might. They just look funny.



    And I'm not sure I would have it any other way. My game is special now. I have a completely different experience than anyone else. Oh and that weird texture on the picture above? I'm not really sure. I was getting attacked when that happen so that could be my zombie arm flailing around (yes it happens when I play as infected in versus), or it could be static blood coming from that zombie. Either way, Pretty badass.
