Yup. I'm an idiot

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 20 2014 · 74 views

So yeah. I busted my 500GB laptop drive.

Oops.

I went to reposition myself and lay on the floor and forgot I injured my knee and freaked myself out and the laptop hit the floor and now I need a new drive...

Well, I have one, but it's a grand total of 120GB. So I guess that's something. But the other one is shot. Luckily most everything was backed up and the few things that weren't (Important pictures) had been backed up by my sister.

Ugh. I hate setting up a new computer.

But this thing now runs like lightning so there's that.

Regarding the Gamestop mega stone distribution

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 20 2014 · 56 views

So yeah, the one I rode the bus to today didn't have any of the cards, apparently they didn't get shipped or something. I was given the Nintendo Customer Service number to call, but from what I've heard it's pretty flooded at the moment. The lady at the front desk seemed a bit misinformed on how that works, but I can't say that's her fault, and she was nice about the whole thing.

So if someone does happen to have an extra one for the Y version maybe you could get me the code? That would be really fantastic.

This Steam thing is becoming a problem

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 16 2014 · 115 views

I've just bought three games in the span of less then 24 hours.

All of them on sale.

Pfft. I won't buy a bunch of games I said.

I was wrong.

I wonder how long it will be until I just randomly start buying gift copies of games for people. I see that happening during the next big sale.

This has been one of the best mistakes I've ever made.

I really don't understand my friend...

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 16 2014 · 117 views

So, recently, one of my friends decided he was no longer going to play M rated games. Well, that's all fine and dandy except he still plays them. He still has the entire Halo collection, Assassins Creed collection, And a lot of call of duty games. And more often then not I see him playing ghosts whenever he happens to be logged on Xbox. (He's got himself convinced that if he owns all the Halo games that they are going to be worth a ton of money one day.) But he managed to sell off his Bioshock 1 and 2 games even though I specifically told him if he was going to do that I would like to buy them off of him. But of course that didn't happen. And he wants an Xbox one so he can play more halo games.

I mean, if he wants to not play M rated games and only play sports games, whatever, his call. But if you go on Facebook and say that and then don't do it but still claim to be doing it then that's a bit of an issue.

I'm done. Goodnight.

According to their facebook page there is an event for a pokeball pattern Vivillion. I have yet to grab it but I intend to shortly.

Also we're finally getting some events. What is this, like, the fourth one?

Kid Icarus: Uprising

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 03 2014 · 128 views

I've talked about this game before. Not in depth really, though. But I really like this game.

It has some of the most genius minigame design I've ever seen.

You read that right. KI:U has minigames. And I know Most of the time I've encountered these things it's been an infuriating break from the game I intended to still be playing. The one's in the lego games are rather irritating, IMO. I think it's odd that the Lego Harry Potter game for the DS has an unlockable specifically for avoiding them.

But KI:U uses them differantly. Rather than breaking you away from the game, it uses them to enhance them. The weapon fusing game is basically a simple applied graph. Put in weapon A and B and get a weapon that is determined by the stats of the original 2. And, at least in early game, this can be completely ignored or not understood with little bearing on the actual game. But offers a nice set of tools for those who can figure out (or google) how they work.

There's also a simple minigame for unlocking an (Extremely extensive) encyclopedia. It has little bearing on the actual game, but it does allow those who wish to know more the ability to do so. This can be completely ignored with pretty much no ingame consequence.

There's also a trading type game, but I haven't had much expierience with that, as it takes an extremely large amount of ingame currency to take advantage of without simply giving you more ingame currency.

And this game also has a rather peculiar way of incorporating strategy. Rather than having you plan in the middle of the game, it makes you do so beforehand. part of the game is picking a weapon and set of abilities. The actual game play is pretty much run and gun, based purely on skill and ability. But if you pick claws and don't know how to use them, you aren't going to do well, and since the weapons have unlimited ammo, this works well. Rather then forcing you to know how nearly every weapon in the game works, you can get by using only the ones that suit you. the abilities have ammo, though and they have an odd way of being activated, being at the lower corner of the touch screen, putting them out of realistic view, meaning they are typically forgotten about, and most have limited use, but some can be helpful. This part is probably a strike against the game, but not a very big one.

Basically this game is awesome and you should get it if you have a 3DS.

My first impression of FTL

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 01 2014 · 79 views

Logicalcyclops: It's just got these unpredictable difficulty spikes and just let him suffocate and what do you mean the O2 thingy is broken he wasn't even near it and now I've effectively cut off my ability to repair the thing that gives me air with a lack of air and the irony isn't killing me the lack of air is.
Logicalcyclops: Actual thing that happened.
Logicalcyclops: But at least nothing was on fire.
Logicalcyclops: Because there was no fricking air.


This is a description of one of my first runthroughs of Faster Than Light.

This game is going to be fun. And I don't know if that's sarcasm or not. I don't think it is because that situation was fun to watch. In a defeated way but still fun.

Good job Nickelodeon, you broke it.

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Jul 24 2014 · 105 views

Alternative title: "This is why we can't have nice things."

So for those who aren't aware, net weeks episode of Legend of Korra will be the last episode to air on Nick. the rest are through digital streaming.

Something about low ratings or something, but I don't know, maybe, just maybe if they bothered to let people know that something watchable was airing we wouldn't have this issue.

But, you know, if a show doesn't have enough viewers, just put it somewhere else. that'll fix it.

I found the best thing to do in the Destiny beta.

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Jul 23 2014 · 63 views

So there's this blue metal structure along the very top of the map. If you know what you're doing it's pretty easy to get up there.

Than you wait for people to notice and try too.

Hands down the most fun I've had all day.
