About
My father purchased a Nintendo for my brothers, sometime before my birth. He may regret that decision for the rest of his life...

Well, I remember Duck Hunt being my favorite game as a child. Maybe I thought it was so cool because I was holding this plastic gun that could do stuff when I pointed it at the tv. Maybe I was fascinated by the technology? I was always curious about things, so maybe that was it.

Maybe I'm supposed to be an assassin, but I love puppies and kittens and fluffy animals in general. This is why I stick to killing only in games =]

Do not doubt my skill. I can shoot in real life.

Blah.

What am I talking about? Hmm, I love games that let you customize the CRAP out of your character. I mentioned before I like killing in games, which reminds me, Saints Row 2. I like it. I'm a crazy mofo in that game =] It's fun.

I like other games too.

Oh, I go by Yadidameng on every website I join. Before I was Yadidameng, I was many things. I dare not remember all of the other names I have used in the past...

Where do I play?
In my room on a tv too large for the room, so I get headaches when I play games such as COD4/MW2, mirrors edge, and really anything that moves too quickly... I'm not sure what that excludes.

I still don't have a 360 -_-

I think I'll survive somehow, at least a while longer.

Lately I've been playing:
StarCraft
FFXIII
Sim City 2000
Megaman Maverick HunterX
King's Cup
WTF
Pokemon Soulsilver
New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Man, I am pretty disturbed. This vid related to this research paper I have to write for my class. Sort of.

At first I was kind of in shock, I didn't expect to go on good old youtube and see what I saw. Should I include a link? I'm pretty sure it's easy to find. Anyway, after I was done being horrified, I started thinking about censorship. I feel pretty sheltered from the real horrors in the world. There's so much real crap going down in other countries that we generally don't hear about often. I've kind of only been slightly aware, if I even count as aware now, for a pretty short time. I'm thankful to not have personal experience with real tragedies, but other people have horrific experiences and become aware of things at such young ages.

The assignment for my class is to pick 2 controversial photographs and decide if they should be censored or not. I'm writing about the Sri Lankan Civil War. I kind of stumbled upon the subject really by chance. I was reading an article in a magazine about M.I.A. because I love her. lol I heard that she was from Sri Lanka. I know very very little about that place. I was curious because the magazine mentioned a line from one of her new songs saying that "I didn't choose a struggle but a struggle chose me/So I'm dancing on the rubble permanently." What rubble? What is she talking about? Well, I found out that the Sri Lankan Civil War went on for over 25 years and only ended LAST YEAR! I had no idea, really.

Well, I'm not used to seeing real dead bodies. While looking for controversial pics, I came across one that was taken near the end. It was of the Tamil Tiger's (LTTE) leader's corpse. No it's not his body on the ground, covered by a sheet or something. It's right in his face, eyes open. It's pretty odd...

I feel like I'm rambling now. Man. Anyway, I don't think that photographs should be censored like crazy. If an event happened, whether its a tragedy or not, it still happened. I'm not saying that disturbing images need to be plastered all over the tv, but it is important that people know what happened. Sometimes people try to down play terrible events. If images aren't released, some may successfully deny it and we will be kept in the dark.

Anyway, the Jimquisition video was effective. I don't want realistic violence in my games.
