So yes, my fellow NEers, get ready for another fun-filled end-of-the-week snow shower. Huzzah D:

Also, I need a Lavos icon :/

The true opening to Metal Gear Solid 3 is TOTALLY a rip-off of a 007 James Bond opening.

C'mon, now, Konami :P

Most criticism of religion in Spore is from "militant atheists", claims Wright

I guess it just goes to show that you can be stupid regardless of your beliefs, or lack thereof :/

Animal Crossing confirmed for Wii, complete with "community microphone" that lets you talk to other players.

Calling out especially to my foreign friends. If anyone has a copy of Pokemon Diamond or Pearl that's originally in French, Spanish, Italian, German, or Japanese, let me know. I've recently learned that trading specific Pokemon in these languages to an English cart will unlock Pokedex entries for them in those languages, and so I'd love to trade for them to round out my collection. Thanks :D

Bad News: Payroll won't be able to get me a check advance until tomorrow at the earliest, Monday the latest.

Good News: I won ~$115 worth of groceries from Whole Foods for guessing the price of goods in a shopping cart. Yeah~

Also Good News: Fuck Yes.

That is all :D

First, I apologize to Jen for seemingly mocking your accent. I couldn't help it; when you bust it out the way you do, I can't help but imitate it, and it's not to insult you, I promise <3

Second, if you have Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, you should pick up My Pokemon Ranch for the Wii. At $10, it's a cute little storage system for your game(s) (though you cannot use it to quickly transfer Pokemon from one DS cart to another). Jen and I have been greatly amused by it, and I've had some fun trying to fill it up.

First off, have some codes:

Wii: 8759 3422 0858 5579
Super Smash Bros Brawl: 4253 3152 9910

Also bring it. The game is awesome so far; we're going through the Adventure mode slowly but surely, and now taking a break for foodz.

Also, Jen cracked. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is waiting patiently in her bag, ready to be played during the rare moments that SSBB is not.

I just helped my wife do something she's never done before: beat The Legend of Zelda for the NES.

Seems the Smash Dojo is going to start posting Hidden Character information now that the game has seen release in Japan. Shame, I really liked that site, but I'm going to have to avoid it from now on if I want to stay relatively spoiler-free until March 9.

More and more Super Smash Bros Brawl leaks keep trickling through from across the pond - no, not that pond, the other pond - and while they are very enticing, I want to stay away. I want to be surprised, dammit >| Here's what I found out so far, safely hidden away behind a cut:

This game's winner is... )

More to come for sure, but I want to hold off until I get the game. Hopefully. >_>


It's-a me!

This may be the best thing you see all day:

Also, yay for auto-complete tags :D

So Jen took a mental-health day, and I agreed to stay with her so we could see the doc together. No call back yet on an appointment, but in the meantime, she discovered that "The Lost Levels" was out on VC.

Oh dear:

"What the fuck do you mean Mario can't swim?" (Mario sinks into a small pool of water in World 1-2)
"What the fuck is a Blooper doing there?" (flying around in World 1-3)
"Where's my go-downy-pipe?" (Looking for a warp pipe in 1-2)
"What is the appropriate use of a Starman, then?" (after I chastised her for 'wasting' it as she tried collecting coins while invincible -_-)

And many, many more profanities. Lulz were had.

Metroid Prime: Corruption is AWESOME.

I've only played the opening level so far, but man, the game handles REALLY WELL. The controls will take some getting used to, seeing as I'm not really an FPS kind of guy, but so far they work quite well. The sound is INCREDIBLE, too, quite the step up from Echoes, and the designers have sure gotten the feel of the game down pat (pact?) The graphics are alright, but again, the Wii isn't known for ZOMG GRAFIX; this is probably the one area that's comparable to Echoes, but that's not really a bad thing.

Go play it. If you're an FPS person, you'll get the hang of the controls in no time. Even if you're not, the game plays really well and continues the essence of the first two perfectly.

Oh, and because Jen is being shy for some reason: Super Paper Mario is very cute. A slight deviation from the first two - it's more of a side-scroller/adventure|RPG than before, but the feel, again, is preserved quite well. You never really feel like you have to grind to get levels, which is good, as the gameplay is so seamless and engaging you'll forget, at times, that it is an RPG at heart. Play it if you liked the first ones, or if you like the Mario series in general.

- Internets are back. w00t (read with a German accent, i.e., pronouncing the "w" as a "v").


- Jen and I found a new little hole-in-the-wall called Coast Cafe. Best fried chicken and mac & cheese I've had in ages, and they have some bitchin' mashed potatoes and gravy to boot.

- Possibly old news, but I've not been keeping up with my video game info: GH3 for the Wii, with a control scheme I totally called (shoving a Wii-remote into a guitar shell, basically) and songs performed by the original artists instead of covers (though I don't know if GH2 or GH80s has something similar).

That's all. Place is coming along slowly but nicely. Can't wait to have people over eventually :D

...Sony strikes again -_-

Quick recap: the 60GB PS3 will be discontinued by the end of July or August in the US. They'll still be on the shelves, but once gone, that's it, you'd have to get the $599 80GB one.

You know...I don't hate the PS3, far from it; it's a gorgeous machine and the games look absolutely STUNNING on it, and I WOULD love to play MGS4 and FFXIII at some point. But God dammit, Sony, you just LOVE to piss all over your current and potential customers, don't you? By the time I'd be able to afford the 60GB at its current price, they'd likely be gone, and I don't know how I feel about $100 for 20 measely gigs I'll probably never use -_-

I did not expect to see this person come back (Link name contains the name of the character, so don't click/hover if you want to be kept surprised).

I was really expecting a lot of the guys from Melee to be culled, but with this person's inclusion, I'm kept wondering who else will stick around...

DS love

Most excellent. As hard as Contra III was, it was SO much fun to play. Here's hoping for some Wi-fi connectivity so I can 2P with someone.

More substantial posting coming soon...hopefully.
