More Raiding! Other Stuff Too Kinda!

Last night I progressed even further into Cataclysm raiding right after my two week hiatus, huzzah! My guild and I downed Council after a few attempts and then moved onto Cho'Gall. After a few attempts, we got him to phase two which proceeded to rape us. But that's okay, it was fun to try and we've got the fight down now. It's just a matter of DPS which some people are crapping out on sometimes.

Luckily, my BiS ranged slot dropped. It was a BoE and really a minor upgrade except for AoE pulls. FoK has to have a throwing weapon equipped, so I used my gladiator's edge. My single target DPS was a crossbow. But anyways, enough about WoW. While I was in Wisconsin I actually played a decent shooter on the Wii of all things. It was called The "Conduit", if I spelled that correctly.

I only played for a little bit but it seemed pretty damn fun. The kids got back from school and the little boy wanted me to play "that tank game" with him. Fucking Wii Play.

I'm Home

Well, I got home yesterday. I was tired after I spent longer in Houston than I thought I would for a retarded reason. First of all, I was flying from Houston to Austin. Which by plane is about 34 minutes. So anyways, we get half way to Austin (we were flying for nearly 20 minutes) when the captain came on and said "Uh, people, we have a problem..."

Fuck... He told us that the landing gear had not went up completely and the company (Cuntinental Airlines) told the pilot to take us back to Houston. That's right... We were halfway to Austin and we had to turn around. Which, by the way, took longer considering we had to fly past Houston and pull a 180 to land at the airport. So that took about 30 minutes. So far, I am 50 minutes late.

Once we get to the airport we get off the plane and they tell us we'll get another one soon. We watch the crew board about ten minutes later and we thought all was good. But no. They had to "cater the plane." The fuck!? It's a 30 minute flight! I don't want to get served peanuts and water if it means waiting that much longer! Thirty fucking minutes pass by. The crew calls the people working the desk and say "A little longer we're still catering the plane."

RAGE. Thirty minutes and they didn't finish? Even the workers at the desk are pissed and one guy even goes to tell the captain just to let us on the fucking plane. So finally, five minutes later, they start to board. The plane takes off and all is good. But here is the part I don't get. Their idea of "catering" was walking down the aisle with a trash bag full of pretzels and peanuts. That's fucking it. Not even any drinks. What the fuck were they doing those thirty minutes? Jerking off?

Well. That's all for today. I'll actually talk about video games again tomorrow. I figured this story might entertain some of you guys.

Going Home

Well, I've been in Wisconsin for a week and a half now. It's pretty fucking cold compared to Texas. I went sledding for the first time ever, and had all the fun in the cold I could... And I'm sick of it.

I'm ready to go home so I can get back to what I really love doing. Playing teh vidya! I've already decided that when I finally get home, I'm going to sit down and finish games that I started but just didn't find the time to finish. One of these would be Dead Rising 2. I loved the original, and the second is pretty damn fun.

Nothing like slaying endless hordes of zombies in a skirt. After that I'll prolly play some zombie mode on Black Ops. Considering that's the only good quality of Black Ops. I'm pretty video game starved. Stuck for two weeks playing Mario 64 (which was beat in no time) and a Wii has drained me of my love for Nintendo.

I'm more than ready to hop back on my PC and continue my progression into Cataclysm and to save the internet, one video game at a time. One Wii game that did entertain me however was Epic Mickey. It's a pretty good game, to be honest. But EPIC Mickey just isn't the right name for it. Maybe "Decent Mickey" or something similar.

So just four days until I can get back to making posts everyday that nobody cares about. Not being able to post everyday drastically reduced my traffic, completely obliterating my chances to get that $100 so Google will send my money on time.

Oh well. This blog has kept me mildly busy at home and always makes me think of what to post. I hope I'll be able to keep posting for a long time to come.

I'm by no means a fan of the Wii. Sure it has SOME good games, but I'm not quite into the motion control. Don't get me wrong, though. I'd rather it be like the Wii's and PS3's than the shitty shit Kinect. When I got my Wii when it first came out, all I did was play Wii Sports.

I rented and beat Red Steel, Mario Galaxy, and a few other games. But I just could not get into it. However, I didn't have a hacked Wii like my dad. So he can get pretty much any Wii game he'd like.

So, instead of informing, I would like to be informed, bros. What are some worthy games for the Wii?

Old School Vidya

So here I am in Wisconsin with no PC capable of gaming, no PS3, no 360, just a Wii and an n64. I'm having a blast playing Mario 64 again. It's easily one of my favorite games of all time. Now if only they had Banjo Kazooie... The five year old kid here loves to watch me play and loves playing the Wii. Little bastard actually beat me in Wii Bowling. To be fair, I have not played a Wii in two years.

I have a raid tonight but I doubt I'll be capable of making it. I missed my raid on Sunday, sadly. Good thing they didn't progress at all. It snowed about 4-5 inches yesterday. Being from Texas, it's pretty much the most snow I've ever seen. Even when it does snow where I live it melts in a day or two.

I don't really have that much time to blog. I have stuff to do with my dad and all that. I'll try to make an actual post soon, but for now I hope this is good enough.

Brb Lel

Going to Wisconsin for two weeks tomorrow. Flight leaves at 9:00 am. so I have to be up early to get there and print out my ticket. Bad time to have a broken printer. Since I have not talked about video games in a while,I'll talk about a new upcoming MMO, that I have not researched much about but know all I need to know to make me interested.

The MMO is called Rift. Basically, there are four classes which you can choose from. All of these classes have 8 "souls" which are like a sub class which go along with the class. For example, Rogues can be a Riftstalker, Ranger, Nightblade, and a few other goodies.  Mages can be things like Necromancer, Pyromancer, and other things of that nature.

 There are also events in the game where a rift opens and monsters pour out of it or something. I honestly don't know much about the game. But it still has me interested and I thought I'd share it for those wanting to look into it. Sorry this wasn't much of a post, I have to go finish getting ready now. I'll try to keep up posting as much as possible while in Wisconsin.

Thanks for reading.

My Cat

This is my cat. She gets so many eye boogers.

Embarrassing Video Game Moments

Well, this is pretty embarrassing, but I also find it a fun story to share. When I was eleven or so, I was playing Donkey Kong on the N64. I was never a Donkey Kong fan, so I don't understand why this all happened. I was eating dinner while sitting in the living room floor a few feet from the TV like a typical retarded child and drinking some refreshing soda.

When suddenly, I realize I have to piss. My first thought was "Okay time to get up and piss." But... People... I was just having so much fun playing Donkey Kong. I didn't want to take the 10 steps down the hall to the bathroom. So there in the floor I sat there and pissed myself. It was quite warm, if you're curious. My sister still makes fun of me and tells my friends about it.

And not a single fuck was given.

Not Wiping like a Boss

Well, after an hour of two attempts we finally got the boss that was giving us trouble the other night down. It was all thanks to the guy that hits the gongs to stop Atramede's attack. He finally started not sucking (just kidding he was lowest DPS) and rung the gongs on time.

Then again... He DID die at about 50%. So I take back what I said about the not sucking. I actually died around 25% because the laser caught up to me. The guy who rang the gongs told my brother to ring the gong. My brother didn't hear him. So even though I could have run the gong myself, I didn't want to risk wasting a gong.

So of course, they downed him from 25% with five people. One of them died at 10%, but thank God for Ankhs. Lesson of the day: Druids are nice cause dey can BRes.

Disappointing Final Boss Fights (Spoilers)

I'm sure if you've played many video games, then you've had your terrible one every now and then. But then sometimes you get that amazing game that you just love, but the end just makes you want to rewrite it. If I were to pull an example off the top of my head, it'd be one of my favorite games for the PS1, Azure Dreams. Spoilers below.

In Azure Dreams you're a boy named Koh who goes into the monster tower to none other than hunt for monsters. There are 40 floors in all, and you travel through each by either taking an elevator or waiting until the level collapses and carries you to the next floor. Every time you leave the tower to sell items or because you're about to die, your level drops back down to one. However, the familiar you get at the start, Kewne, retains whatever level you got him to.

Believe it or not, this game can get fairly complicated at higher levels. One obstacle of the game is your familiar 's MP. Once it hits zero, they can no longer fight. MP can only be restored by a Water Crystal or feeding your familiar. Anyways, back to the point. I enjoyed this system and I loved getting eggs to hatch and raise new familiars.

This is where it gets me. Once you reach the final floor you confront the man who killed your father when you were a child.  It turns out that Kewne was actually a part of the bad guy because he can fuse with them or some crazy shit. So you have to fight the boss without Kewne. Even though he was a total bro throughout the game.

But that's not all! Once your health gets to a certain point, Kewne decides that he likes you more and pulls your father's sword out and gives it to you. Finally, with one last attack, you put the final boss out of his misery.

So in short, you can't die. Disappointing, yes?

Wiping like a Boss

Time for my second post on this blog. Since I'm currently in between wipes in Blackwing Descent, I'll talk about World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Not to mention there is a bug disconnecting us every time when run into the instance. Right now I'm attempting Atramedes, the blind dragon. We've wiped about three times, but everyone is getting a hang of the mechanic that generally kills us.

I enjoy it quite a bit, actually. During the fight you have sound built up on you. The person with the greatest amount of sound is targeted by some of his attacks. He'll do one attack that puts a little bit of sound on everyone, then follows up by shooting little circles all throughout the room that puts sound on you the longer you stand in them.

One would think that I'd be mildly annoyed by those circles, considering I'm a melee class. Rogue, to be exact. Well hell, we just attempted it again... I hate forgetting about poisons and starting the fight without them on. Not a good thing at all. Guess I let it slip my mind because I was busy thinking of things to type.

I'll take a break from the writing for now. I guess I need to stop being distracted.

Another Boring Video Game Blog

 Welcome to my blog!

If you like vague and generic news about video games, you've come to the right place. First of all, I'm no writer and I'm terrible at it. But hey, can we ever have enough dull and bland news? I don't think so! I hope you're ready to hear things you more than likely already know in presented to you in worse form than the previous.

Not hooked yet? Not boiling over with excitement? Well good, that's the idea! I suppose I should say what kind of things I'm into. Video games, of course. All genres from all ages and platforms. My favorite platform would have to either be the PS, or the N64. I know you don't care, but I don't know what else to type about.

So how about those Elder Scrolls? Are you all ready for another adventure in the magical land of Tamriel? The newest installment, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, seems to be paving a way for a bleak RPG future. Why do I say this? Well, first of all, Skyrim will have 18 abilities. That's three down from Oblivion! But hey, don't worry. They've got DRAGONS this time.

But hell, I'm sure they have to do something right. Sure it might not be stats, considering they removed them from the game so you can only pick between increasing one of three things every time you level. These being Health, Stamina, and Magicka. But there is a bright side to all this, my friends! Conversations in general will be made more realistic. People will walk, work, and show other emotions during your chit chat.

I'm not the kind of person who thinks graphics mean much when it comes to video games, but having a new engine never hurts. The facial models will be actually realistic this time, hoorah! The faces in Oblivion (and games alike) always disappoint me. Everyone in Tamriel has Down's Syndrome. Lets see lets see. I'm sure I'm missing plenty of things. I hope you enjoy level scaling, because you got it in Skyrim.

I suppose I'm done with this meaningless post. Didn't get enough information from this post? I'm sorry, but you should expect this.
