Let's see...it sure has been a while eh?
Okay, here's the low down.
Mostly just the same in and out. I helped around the house, helping Ma and Joe adding some details to the back yard.
My brother Greg also moved in with us. He and my brother Matt apparently got into a big fight, sooo...now he's moved into the guest room. It's cool to hang out with him again, but I gotta get used to his nature. He's kinda a slob at times. But at least he cleaned my bathroom.
In addition to just being able to hang out with him again, he also brought along his X-Box (which included all of the Splinter Cell games and Ninja Gaiden) and his SNES (including FF III, Link to the Past, Super Mario World, Out of this World and Flashback...ahhh..the memories...) But of course, that's just an added bonus.
He and I also rented Flushed Away and The Departed, both of which were amazing. So, yeah. Amazing for different reasons granted, but amazing.
I also rented Marvel: Ultimate Alliance for my Wii. And despite the fact the inner Marvel geek in me really wanted to like it, the Wii version was lacking. The implemented Wii controls were rather lacking. And of course, since you need additional Wii-motes AND Nunchucks to play (as opposed to implementing just the Wii-mote...or maybe the virtual console controller) I was forced to play alone, which, needless to say, wasn't NEARLY as fun as if I coulda played with Greg. But then again, that's usually the case with those kind of games.
LAST WEEK SUCKED. I don't think I can be any more blatant. It had it's up moments, to be sure. Mostly just I was finally able to hang out with Calla again. I always like hanging out with her. But other than that, the week more or less sucked.
Two tests is bad. Two tests after Spring Break is worse. Though, admittingly, I did get an 84% on one. Doesn't mean it was pleasant.
In addition to those, I just seemed to have a figurative storm of work fly in from all sides. Just...wasn't a good week. Period.
I did get to hang out with Camereon (my friend/leader from my bible study), his roomie Travis and Mark. Specifically, we went and saw TMNT.
...Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, what a let down that was.
I mean, it wasn't BAD. It had it's great moments. Mostly, the animation and character design, a couple of the jokes and the fight scenes (specifically one between Leo and Raph). But the movie felt extremely rushed, and the story, when it made sense, seemed very thrown together. Like the writers had partyed the entire week before, planning on the movie's success, and then realized they hadn't even written their script yet, and threw it together at the last second (Like SO many college students). But in addition, I felt really awkward. This movie, more so than any of the ones which preceeded it, was clearly aimed at a younger audience.
Today and such:
Well, this week hasn't been too bad thus far. Greg's friend Jess came b for the weekend, which was cool, since he's a nice fella. In addition, he is letting us borrow his 360 (Which includes Gears of War and EA Fight Night 07). After I thrashed him at Wii Bowling, He made me (and Joe Fraizer) look bad at Fight Night.
Yesterday, it was uneventful, excluding my new issue of Nintendo Power. So I'll leave that be.
Today wasn't too bad. Mark and I got into a discussion, and while I already concluded some time ago that I wanted to sell Red Steel, I intend to finish it first. I know it didn't do well with critics, and most gamers, but I still didn't think it was that bad, I still liked it, and I do intend to finish it.
The problem is is that Super Paper Mario comes out in like...two weeks. Tops. And I would like it. :/
But, thems the breaks right?
I was gonna work on my essay today, but Angelica wasn't feeling well (her Grand-Pappy died recently) and she was freaking out because an assignment was due today in class, so I agreed to help. It was no big deal, and hey, everyone needs a knight in shining armor right?
...Just wish I could find a princess.
SPEAKING OF WHICH...
I downloaded Super Ghouls N' Ghosts on the Virtual Console. GOD the memories. I love this game. More so now than ever. It's still a pain in the ass though.
Anyway, I guess that's all for now. Hope everyone else is doing good.
Be sure to relax and keep it real.
Oh yeah! Check this out! This was my project for class. It's nothing terribly special, but I think that given the materials I had to work with, it's not too bad. Check it out.
