eh, the disaster is averted, but I still need to keep my ass in gear to prevent the burning of the self by the teachers and the parents. oy.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein is fun. even though I cheat my way through it. strange thing, when I have it on lowest quality, there are parts where it still frame skips, and it is not affected on higher quality settings. bah. very fun game.
welcome. everything I write here is something I felt to be important to some degree; game reviews, life updates/vents, and philosophical musings. I do my best to make my statements truthful. everyone is welcome to post comments, provided they are relevant.
I am sooo screwed. missed a week of school, including a couple of tests, and my excuse is not legitimate. well, I haven't consulted a doctor about my sleeping troubles, but I fear it's psychological, and I don't have time to deal with that crap. my medication only keeps me from getting pissed off, and even then it's mainly to get off my dad's back. aaaaagh.... *brain imploding*
you all know what a trebuchet is, right? can you imagine someone who has too much time and money, and gets the idea for building one? I saw some of that on TV. now he's got the idea of building one something like 10 stories high out of steel. yeeeheheheheee. I wanna see some of that shit.
I've neglected to mention I got Myst 3: Exile as well, very close to the time I bought Maximo. like the other Myst games, this bugger is tricky. there are several paths that are near impossible to spot, so you need to keep your eyes peeled to the retina. it might help if you turn the lights off so you see more of what's on the screen. also, back-tracking is inevitable, so keeping transition speed up is good. the interface has been changed to a spherical photograph, if you know what I mean. you can look in every direction from the spot you're standing in, although the spots are specific. scenery quality has improved, and the movies, when you find them, are AWESOME. especially in Amateria. I recommend it. wether you cheat or not, is completely up to you. (makes shifty eyes)
i have a serious hate/love relationship with Maximo. ya see, even with the locations of every hidden chest at my disposal, that's only part of the mastery meal-ticket. you have to find EVERY enemy and kill them outright, and you need to collect EVERY item placed in the stage. it's MADNESS! by the way, if you're playing this game too, good luck finding ALL the tar zombies in 'Dem Bones. bwahahaha.
ya know what? I'm not gonna buy kinetica. why not? because it's HARD. I'd love to play this with my biddies, but we never have enough time co-ordination to get together while renting a game. BUT, I did buy Maximo, and that's going swimingly. guess I can't deny what I'm best at.
