Title: Dance Dance Aggravation
Posted: March 30, 2007 (11:24 PM)
As I mentionned in my previous blog entry, I got DDR Universe on the 360. I'm new to the series and this is my first time playing DDR. I play on Basic diffuculty and I'm not that bad. Problem is, Basic is getting a bit too easy and I can't keep up for **** on Difficult. There are just too many arrows coming at my at once and I can't keep up, even if I go into training mode and lower the speed.
Another problem is the damn Quest Mode. It's an abomination from the depths of Lucifer's playground. NOTHING is explained and you're just sort of left there to complete annoying and sometimes seemingly-impossible challenges. You completely randomly unlock songs and videos and the whole **** mode is plain broken. Other than that, the game money well spent.
If you play this game and can help me get better with some tips, PLEASE let me know. I really want to get good at this game and keep playing regularly, as with my busy schedule it's one of the few ways I can keep remotely active.
In other news, I present to you this offering of photoshopped goodness in exchange for cake and a third leg:
Before and After
My friends stopped sending me pictures of themselves :(
I wonder why?
Lastly, listen to "Grace Kelly" by Mika. If you don't, I'll assume you like punching puppies in the face.

DDR. Wow. Fun as all hell, but I don't see how it's humanly possible to clear songs at the harder difficulties. Here are 3 ways you can clear them:
1. Have 3 or more legs. When there's a thousand steps you have to complete coming at you at blazing speed to the point where you're ready to fall dead and the dance mat is begging for mercy, having an extra leg or two isn't such a bad idea. Mutation ftw.
2. Have either the ability to control time or super speed. Slow it down for the rest of the game and dominate with your "super speed". Or, you know, you can always adjust the game speed options to play the song slower so you have more time to complete steps. But where's the pride in that?
3. Be Asian.

That's right. I've decided to get in shape. I'm not super overweight or anything but I'm definitely not the weight I should be for my age. So as a first step, I bought Dance Dance Revolution Universe for the 360. I was playing it all afternoon and it's quite a blast. It's the first time I've ever played a DDR game so I'm not the greatest. I also gave up eating meat about 2 months ago, which requires me to eat alot more veggies and soy. I can proudly say I'm perfectly happy and don't crave meat at all anymore. And once I can afford it, I'm joining a gym. Let's hope all goes well and I lose some weight.

Title: Things I've noticed playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (XLA)
Posted: March 23, 2007 (11:19 AM)
I've been playing TMNT almost non-stop since it came out on XLA. The only achievement I have yet to unlock is Turtle Soup, which requires you to defeat the Shredder without getting turned into a regular turtle. What pisses me off is that I've already pulled this off but didn't get the achievement due to what I'm guessing is a glitch. But that's not the point. Having gone through the game as many times as I have in the past week, I've noticed some things that are quite...odd.
1) Since when can Shredder clone himself and shoot lightning that turns our heroes into regular turtles? I don't remember seeing that in the cartoon, do you?
2) Why can't any of the turtles just hit Krang directly and get it over with instead of going up against his robot? He's right there, in the middle. All you need to do is stab him once and BAM. Dead, but nooooo. We need to go through this long and tedious boss fight, only for him to get away when the turtles are STANDING RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF HIM. They don't even flinch. They just watch him get away...slowly. You know he's going to be back and fuck shit up for you, so why wouldn't you just knock his ass out of the air? Sigh.
3) Why is it that a handful of Mousers can capture Master Splinter? Splinter is the one who TRAINED the turtles! He's the one who defeated Shredder at the end of the first movie! You're telling me with all that ass kicking experience, he gets carried off my robotic dog-things that explode with one hit?
Splinter. Kicking ass and taking names...unless you're a tiny robotic mouse thing.
4) After defeating that first rock boss, Splinter just magically unties himself. Couldn't his cheddar loving ass have done that BEFORE and helped us defeat that bastard of a boss? Guess not.
5) After you rescue Splinter, you clearly see the turtles standing IN FRONT of the technodrome and one of them says "There it is!". After all this, WHY is the next area called "We have to find the technodrome!"???. Not only that, but the actual area IS INSIDE the technodrome! What's there to find? You're INSIDE the damn place.
6) Someone let Bush know I found the weapons of mass destruction. They're in TMNT. Where the hell did the Foot Ninja get BOMBS? Yes, that's right, BOMBS. Big, yellow, nuke-like bombs that they just toss at you. Not only that, but missile launching helicopters in that merciless, unforgiving skateboard level.
Yeah, I know it's just a videogame and, even at that, one from the late 80s. But you just can't help but wonder what they were thinking.

I finally watched 300. The film is simply incredible. The visual style is as unique as it gets and I've even developed a man-crush on Gerard Butler (Leonidas). The fight scenes are so well shot you'd think that we're living in a world gone mad for the lack of a console game based on this piece of bloody bliss. Then again, they'd probably f*ck it up anyway, so nevermind.
If you read the graphic novel, you'll definitely notice a few differences between it and the movie, which is to be expected as the graphic novel only takes about a half hour or so to read. The biggest difference is that there's a certain amount of focus on what's going on in Sparta while Leonidas is away, as opposed to the novel where there is little to none, if I remember correctly. Also, the movie includes the obligatory sex scene, of which there was none in the actual novel.
I can't much think of any other way to end this than to urge you to get off your ass and go watch this film, as I will fight you if you don't.
