About Me:

Hello.


I was expecting to be in it for the long haul
November 06, 2009

Five months, six months, a year, we were expecting to take care of my Dad's recent condition for quite some time. However, we were all shocked, even the nurse and doctor, that he passed away early this afternoon. Not even two full weeks passed since his sudden switch. I don't think it has completely sunk in yet, especially since the entire situation was so sudden. I mean, just about 2 weeks ago, he was just completely normal, and now he's just gone thanks to cancer. On the upside, the doctor said he didn't suffer at all during his final moments, and the nurse said the last thing he did before he went was smile. On a selfish downside, I'm possibly going to lose $3000, because at the moment, I'm the only one that can afford my Dad's cremation (they didn't have a monthly payment plan o

Yup, you probably won't see any new reviews from me for quite some time...
October 29, 2009

It's 5:45am as I begin to type this, silently, but it feels like 10am. I'm currently keeping an eye on my Dad, who has gone through a sudden change in the way he acts thanks to his cancer spreading. A cancer we can do nothing about. He's still aware of his family, but he has completely lost track of time, mumbling about events that have happened a week, months, and a year ago as if it happened mere hours ago. He also now has trouble doing simple tasks like using the remote or computer. When he isn't being like this, he has drifted in and out of sleep every 2 minutes for the past 4 days, sometimes attempting to get up after "waking up", which is an impossible task in itself, since it normally requires two people to help him up and walk due to his weak legs. It's hard seeing him like this, b

Alex Kidd: High-Tech World

I didn't even plan on playing or writing for this game. I just remembered two days ago how terrible High-Tech World was and how fun SMB2 was, then decided to write about them.

RezHD, E4, and Lumines Live together isn't worth $20
October 11, 2009

According to the lone customer review on this Amazon page.

"It's the same price as downloading the three games induvidually, so you're not getting a bundle discount,"

"It's great that publishers are putting together these collections, but I'd like to see them budget-priced."

Each game is 800 MS Points, which is about $10. Plus, it states on the Amazon page that the downloadable content for Lumines is also included, which some had Points of 600, 400, and 300 each. So the disc version cost less, even when you attach normal S&H. Seems like a very good deal to me. Just hope the achievements weren't taken out like in Namco Museum: Virtual Arcade.

Things I've learned since I started uploading game videos two years ago
October 07, 2009

-You can never die. Doesn't matter how good you are everywhere else in the video, if you die once, your entire video will be considered horrible.-In certain games, you can never mess up. If you do, people will tell you how much you suck at video games.-The above two are more strict if you upload videos of you playing in online matches. You're 90% more likely to get a bunch of "You suck"-type posts with these.-If you actually play very well in a video, people will either just assume you played on the easiest difficulty setting, or tell you to play on the toughest difficulty setting.-Even if the video you submitted is now over a year old, people will still give you tips on how to "play properly".-People aren't amused. If you do something funny in a video, they'll hate you for it.

Halo 3: ODST

Also, when I went to check if my review was up on GameFAQs, I decided to read the other ODST review that was put up, and came to the conclusion that this was the best ending to any review I've ever read:

"Note for weird people, I have found this game slightly racist as first, Romeo, the only black person on the ODST squad has a hand skin tone (in-game) as Dutch, a white male. And Sgt. Johnson, an unlockable Firefight character, has white hands in-games and smokes a never ending cigar. That is all, thank you."
