Title: COOKIES! Now.
Posted: September 13, 2007 (04:25 PM)
Man, I want some cookies.
EDIT: Since the Song of the Day panel can only hold so many characters, I decided to put it here.
Song of the Day: OK, so one time around the holiday season, I was listening to my local radio station when I heard this really retarded country song about a hillbilly who loved Christmas cookies. A LOT. And since I want a cookie-themed song but can't find a good one, this retarded one will have to do.

Title: Ultimate Flash Sonic
Posted: September 04, 2007 (03:51 PM)
This game is very faithful to Sonic Advance 2. It's not bad for an amateur game, though the boredom sets in after you clear Sonic's game and you discover that all characters' stages are the same. However, it's fun to play in short bursts. Here it is:
Oh, and for those who just wanna unlock it all by being cheaters, here's the password entry to unlock everythang:
Enjoy this game; I think you'll like it!

When I got Windows Vista and settled into it, one of the main things I checked out was the Games section. Besides the natural stuff like Solitaire, Spider Solitaire, Minesweeper, etc., a game called Inkball caught my eye.
It was actually pretty neat. You have these pinballs that you have to get into little goal holes of the balls' respective colors. But how do you do that? Well, it's not called Inkball for nothing. You have this ink pen that you use to draw lines (which disappear after being touched) for the balls to bounce off of and into the goal. The difficulty can get pretty rough, but you can select between five to get into the playing range you're most comfortable with.
However, my point is that this game would totally work as a DS game, you know? The little pen cursor even looks like a stylus. There would be a lot of trouble with the dead zone between the screens, but other than that, this game seems pretty cool. Play it!

I need something to do online. Any ideas?
Title: Stupid History
Posted: August 29, 2007 (01:12 PM)
So, I got this book called Stupid History the other day. It's very interesting and odd, as it chronicles all the misconceptions and myths of our incredibly strange world. As an example, George Washington (who was never our first president, but more on that later), in a popular urban legend, threw a silver dollar across the Potomac River. This is actually wrong, as the silver dollar coin was minted in 1794; Washington died in 1799. And by the way, I don't think anyone can throw a a silver dollar across the Potomac, as the river, at its most narrow point, is a half-mile wide.
Washington, as I mentioned earlier, was never our first president. Remember when the Declaration of Independence, making America a country, was signed, class? That's right; 1776. And when was the start of 'ol George's presidential term? 1789! So who was in charge of the country for those thirteen years? John Hanson! In a congressional meeting, the Congress voted him president in 1781. After him came Elias Boudinot, Thomas Mifflin, Richard Henry Lee, Nathan Gorman, Arthur St. Claire, Cyrus Griffin, and... the eighth pres, George Washington.
These, along with many wierd occurences, basically make up Stupid History. If you want to impress your friends, baffle your history teacher, or simply learn some stuff you never knew while having a good laugh, pick this book up. Trust me, you won't regret it.

Euchre is fun, but this movie is stupid:
Title: That Clears THAT Up
Posted: August 26, 2007 (07:35 AM)
Well, friends, the problem from my previous entry was my TV. It was causing the brightness. Thanks to Genj and Espiga for their advice and dance moves (you'll have to read the replies to the entry to see what I mean). My N64 is still as good as ever.
Posted: August 25, 2007 (12:12 PM)
Not thirty minutes ago, I decided to take out my N64 for some good ol' Star Foxing. Everything was in working order. I turned on the system and got to the start-up screen.
It shined brighter than a Lite-Brite. It was still visible, but so bright as to be annoying.
Suspicious, I turned it off and did a spit-heal (my affectionate term for when you lick your finger, run it on the cartridge's insertion point, then put it back in and watch it work). After that, I turned it on again, but it didn't need it; the console was functioning perfectly.
Except for that dang glow! I was still not worried, as I suspected my TV's brightness was too much. I turned it all the way down, then retried, but I had no success.
I was now beginning to worry a little. I tinkered the settings repeatedly, but it didn't work. I began to suspect a problem with the console. I tried all my N64 carts in the console, but they were all afflicted with unnatural brightness.
Seriously worried now, I decided to do a last-resort maneuver: shut it off, unplug it all, then plug it all back in, turn on the console, and sigh with relief as it turned back to normal.
It was still furiously bright.
Before taking out my cash and calling the Nintendo tech support hotline, I decided to ask for help at the one place I knew somebody would know something and tell me: HG. Can ANYONE tell me what to do? I don't want my console to be dying. If anybody knows how to fix it without having to wield a toolset or pay a hefty amount of moola to someone who knows how to wield one, PLEASE inform me. I really want to continue playing my N64, so any help at all will be appreciated.
Title: Custom Greeting Edit

As you may realize, my former custom greeting message was too long and silly, so I updated it to something much simpler, as you can tell.
Edit: Watch this movie:

Does anyone else YouTube-search their fave games and stare at videos of game footage for hours? I do that. Gads, I'm nerdy wierd.
Also, if you do that, you may THINK you're nerdy, but do you download them onto RealPlayer and stare at them along with vids you've never seen?? DO YOU?!?!?!?!?

Title: Working on New Fanfic
Posted: August 19, 2007 (10:31 AM)
As you may know, I have two fanfictions on HonestGamers right now. I'm working on a third one, so be excited! Yeah. It's another Sonic one. Don't groan; my best writings seem to come from Sonic. It ought to be up in the next week or so.
Title: Geometry Wars Pwns
Posted: August 16, 2007 (04:07 PM)
As I'm sure every Xbox 360 owner knows, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved (for the Xbox Live Arcade) is, like, the best top-down arena shooter I've played since Asteroids. Enemies that are smart and geometric (duh), good graphics, and a somewhat insane difficulty level that emerges the more you play make for one of the best games ever developed by a small dev team.
Now, you may say "Wayne, why on Earth are you, a Nintendo fanboy, devoting a post on your blog to a game for the competition, you Nintentraitor?!?!?!?!!1?1???!?" Well, in case you haven't heard, Geometry Wars is coming out for the Wii and DS sometime this... er, I wanna say... fall. The Wii version actually has multiple worlds you can travel to, so that's cool.
What else to say, huh? YouTube videos speak louder than type (they have sound, generally):
