Firstly let me say that I only spent about an hour and a half on it last night. Not a lot, but I did get a pretty good impression at least of the campaign.
1-Lack of Master Chief is much more wtf than I thought it would be. I can't say I'm a fan of being a random joe.
2-Is it just me or does the plot blow goats? We skipped through the story stuff half the time. Voice acting was stupid, dialogue was stupid, stupid plot was stupid. So far, anyway. Might have just been the mood I was in.
3-Maps--there is one that is quite yellow and it's hard to see anything. I was playing co-op split screen with someone, so maybe the full screen will be different. It was highly frustrating though and quite a few times I couldn't figure out where the hell to go.
Overall-Not too impressed. Seems a little half-arsed. Like it should have been an add-on for 3 or something, not it's own game. We shall see. Perhaps my initial impressions will change as I play more of it.
Enjoying my new job, meeting some cool people.
Sorry I haven't been on a lot. I got removed as a user from my roommate's computers and he is now going to be moving out. My laptop is broken and my computer access is rather limited atm.
The good news is that I appear to have found a new roommate and he is very nice and clean. :)
Oh yeah, and the FF concert is going to trump all.
Came home and had some pretty drunken dreams. I hate how garbled and random my dreams are when drunk.
Random bits that I can remember but not string together coherently:
-hanging from the bottom of a helicopter
-joining the army
-a rabbit with a bad skin condition
-grandma Ann was still alive
-I made saffron rice
-hot ninja chick had an arm around my waist while walking in a parking lot
-bought a new laptop
Oh yeah, my laptop is dead again ><
I seriously need to stop getting online when I'm drinking. I buy stuff.
And I post lame lj entries.
I want this hat:
I took a few pics of her to send her off with. Posted to DOA:
Also x-posted on local forums.
So for lunch today I ate some fried rice cake and kim-chi. Had some Soju on the rocks to go with it.
It is what I think of when I think of comfort food. Looks pretty terrible though. :D
I still feel like I'm in between a rock and a hard place. Something's gotta give. I am worried that I willl have nowhere to go if anything bad does happen and we lose the apartment. It is no one's fault. I just wish that some people were more responsible. It's bumming me out a little more than I want to admit. I am strong and will get through this. *nods*
I realized I haven't updated my fishtank status much at all. I have a school of bluntnose shiners in there and a few fatheads. Also a small crayfish and a ton of snails. I really need to find some darters to eat some of those darn snails! What I really need is to find more creeks to kick around in.
The tank is coming along nicely. I gave up trying to plant it completely with native plants so many of the plants I have are from the pet store. I figure as long as there are a few native plants and all native animals, I'm still keeping mostly to plan. It look sreally nice overall. The kitties like it.
Project Upstream generates bots and randomly hooks up to people on AIM after sending messages to both parties.
So I end up chatting with this person for a good 20 minutes or so. I'm glad I wasn't a total ass even when I thought he was a bot himself, lol. Turned out he was from Brazil. It was really interesting. So if I start to post here more, it's because I'm hoping for more random fish bots, haha.
My fishtank is looking good. Just put a few more plants in it. The minnows are happy--except the one that died today. :(
I wish I had better lighting--I need to fix the ballast on my 48" fixture. For now they get low watt compacts. They should be okay for a little while like that at least.
There is a RML R20J for sale on DOA right now. I'm going for it. She takes offers until tomorrow night.
Speaking of RML dolls, I repainted Senna. She looks great and I just effing love her.
She was the shining moment of happy in my otherwise kinda crappy day.

Did one more for Misa that has to wait for the DOA contest :D
Speaking of which I am also going to enter the sock contest. I foresee much laughing at most entries to that one. I'm not saying I'm much better, but I think it's funny how many people seem to miss the point and are saying "oh, I have a doll coming in a week, I'll whip something up for him out of a sock for this! Haha!" *eyeroll*
