Monday Post 12 *Updated*

February 2, 2009

Hey Everybody 

It’s Monday. Super Bowl Champions have been crowned (I was supposed to go to a REALLY good party, but something came up).

Jennifer Hudson did an AMAZING job singing the National Anthem.

The Commercials this year were alright. I’m intrigued by the new Star Trek, saddened by not getting 3-D glasses to watch the commercials , and perplexed by the “new” “The Fast & The Furious” Movie.

Oh, and I loved the coke commercial with the online avatars.

and the coke commercial with the “A Bug’s Life” meets “Peter and the Wolf“. 

Am I (and the land of the ‘Noles, Rattlers, and Eagles) The only one’s who’s going to miss out on Denny’s kindness ? on Tuesday (2/3/09) they will be giving away FREE Grand Slam Breakfast’s to everyone. Free. Food. ALL of America. 

*The Denny’s Website was unavailable for comment as of last night*

Here’s what you might have missed since my last Monday Post

There was my fist Locked Post by way of a young E-Thug

I gave my first “I beat the Game” review.

Someone yelled about someone going to hell literally.

MellownMighty had a warm & fuzzy moment.

I introduced and implemented my facebook stalking new funny facebook status watch. (Don’t forget send me emails by Thursday.

There was bear on bear Violence in an office this week.

I had an interesting photo shoot

Finally, I discussed the possibilities of using the BCS system for graduation.

I picked up the “Afro Samurai” game over the weekend. I haven’t started playing it yet, I got other games schoolwork to tend to first.

** Happy Birthday to a special Canadian Bunny who turned 21 today; Enjoy the day and don’t get into too much trouble, and don’t end up in a Canadian Tabloid please 🙂  ** 

Ok, I am thoroughly convinced that FISH stands for “Females In Secret Holdings from others”

I was chatting with #5 Last night *rewind* 

A few days before #5 had a mysterious FaceBook status alluding to the fact she had a surprise for a lot of people. Naturally, my “CSI-Senses” were tingling. I started asking questions, but all she would tell me is that it “involved nicknames” and that “a lot of love went into it”.  she also said that #11 might know something about it…

Anytime you’re ready #11 🙂 

 

So… 

it’s official, I’m getting a dog. 

Not just any dog, but a dog I actually want.

Yes, this little dark brown ball of fuzz will be MINE. 

I hope…  

He’s a Pomeranian, and I’ve already started thinking of names for him… 

Fuzzmaster sounds like a winner to me … 

 

 

 

 

I’m presented with a few options as far as getting him.

If we buy him now, we could:

  1. Try to “sneak” him into our complex and duck the pet fees and additional pet rent.
  2. Pay the pet fees and additional pet rent.
  3. Let him stay with a “Pet-Godparent” until we move. (is now taking applications)

*sighs* I’m at a crossroad… (NSFW!!!) *OK, here’s the real one*  I would hate to miss out on that ball of fuzz. He’s laid back, he wasn’t yipping and yapping like most “little dogs” like to do. and Mrs Blogmaster thought he was adorable which means she would be happy with him, which means I Win !!! 

What am I to do?

** Update ** We’ve decided to wait until the summer. I want to thank the Foster Mother for opening her doors. We reserve the right to use you on a later basis

“I Beat that Game” Series: Prince of Persia

January 27, 2009

Hi

I have slid down walls, ran across walls, Climbed up walls.

Walls, walls, and more walls

That is what the Dr. ordered for this dose of “Prince of Persia” for the PS3.

It was a great action-adventure/platformer. The story line was pretty good.

Yes, it was your typical story of good vs. evil, but that didn’t stop this “good guy” from doing what he had to do to save the day with a lady by his side.

It is hard to give too many details without giving away storyline. One thing that I will mention that  was of interest was the “lack of death”. 

To sum it up, you never really “died” in the video game sense of the term. there was more of a “re-spawning to a convenient location” thing in place of death. It some what helped the game along, but it was weird playing a game that didn’t deal with death.  (slightly NSFW)

There was also a little bit of repetition in the game, but what game doesn’t come with an aspect of repetition?  

Graphically, the game took a cel-shaded approach to the character design (think Wind waker)

I highly recommend you play this game. 

What? what more can I talk about? 

oh! how about the fact I wasn’t too thrilled with the Prince of PERSIA sounding AMERICAN !!!


“I Beat that Game” Series: FF Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon

January 20, 2009

Hey, Mellownmighty here and I have been asked to give my thoughts on Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon for the Wii.

The game’s main protagonist is an adorable, yellow chocobo named, well, Chocobo. There are other characters in the game that you may be familiar with from other Final Fantasy games, plus a slew of random folks that have absolutely no place in the Final Fantasy universe but are there to keep the story moving. Kinda like Ving Rhames’s character in Rosewood (oh, like that link didn’t make you giggle). The main purpose of the game is to restore the memories of the townspeople of Lostime by going inside their head and running a dungeon based on their memories.

There was a Chocobo’s Dungeon that came out on the playstation but from what I recall, this edition for the Wii does not tie the two games together at all. The edition for the Wii is still a dungeon crawler and the dungeons are still randomized, which keeps the challenges going and lessens boredom. It has also made me scream on those wonderful specialty dungeons that they now have. 

The biggest changes to this edition of the game are Job Changes, Gardening, and Fishing. Chocobo can now change jobs to suit his situation through a job change crystal that is introduced at the beginning of each dungeon but the jobs only become available as you obtain the memories of each profession. The gardening aspect of the game gives you the ability to plant “Mystery Seeds” to obtain flowers that do anything from granting job points to curing afflictions. Oh, you can talk trash about the froo-froo-ness of gardening all you want but those flowers will save your butt. Fishing is just what it sounds like: you are fishing for the sake of selling the fish and for one other bonus that you’ll find out if you ever play the game.

As for my honest view on the game, I loved it and I found it to be highly overlooked by most gamers looking for an RPG with substance. Yes, it is an adorable bird and there are tear-jerker moments but don’t you DARE think for a moment that beating this game was a cake walk. Blogmaster should remember the phone calls about how that game is “ridiculously hard for no reason” and then I turn around and call back stating that “I should’ve used that strategy earlier”  when I successfully complete the “ridiculously hard” dungeon.The storyline was actually very good, at times predictable, but still very good. I also took advantage of the mini-games to take a break from the dungeons. Now, that I have beaten the game, I still have work to do because I still have 7 out of 8 post story dungeons to do, plus getting the highest scores on the mini-games. I have also learned that I am just now getting to the ridiculously hard dungeons. Yay.

I recommend this as a fun game that will keep you both entertained for hours and ready to cuss out the screen every once in awhile.


New Author

January 20, 2009

So… I’ve added a new author to the fold.

It’s MellownMighty !!!

She will be posting first in a new series I’d like to call “I beat the game”.

In order to actually make one of these… you have to beat the game you’re playing. 

For now, we will leave it to actual console games… 

Maybe a handheld or 2 if it’s really good.

No World of Warcraft… sorry.

I’m working on one right now.

Ala81 laid the foundation here.

Now, it’s Mellow’s turn. Mine is on it’s way.
