On Preordering Video Games

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Sep 27 2016 · 79 views

I don't understand the justifications my friends come up with for continually doing this. I was playing Destiny with my friend and one of his friends and he mentioned that he almost finished paying off his pre-order for GOW4. When I asked him what he would do if that was a bad decision and it was a dud. He nonchalantly said he would trade it in. When I mentioned waiting for reviews, his freind, in a defensive, sort of offended tone stated reviews don't matter and you should decide for yourself weather you like it.

I mean, that's fine, I guess, but I think you should at least wait to see that the game isn't broken.

My friend also defended the AC game that launched a few years ago, stating that it was a new console and they didn't know how to work with it. One would wonder why they where willing to release the game and block reviews until after release. No, they knew exactly what they where doing.

And we wonder why we get so many broken games....

Metroid Prime: CLEAR!

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Sep 06 2016 · 71 views

That took far longer then it should have... great game though. Despite it being a decade old it still looks really good, if maybe a bit outdated. Things like missiles exploding and seeing Samus's face reflected in the visor where really nice touches.

On to Metroid Prime: Echoes!

Super Metroid: Clear!

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 27 2016 · 67 views

This one took far too long. Really, really great game. Brought me back to when I played Zero Mission as a kid.

Next up: Prime! If I can get through that omega pirate...

I Have a Serious Question

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 23 2016 · 215 views

Okay, so I'm seeing if I can't get a second opinion that's in no way connected to my personal life.

OK, so a little less then a month ago I was at a local restaurant with my family for my father's birthday. When I went up to order the young lady who took it made note that she saw me there often, (which is true) and asked for my name. (She also gave me hers but I was kind of panicking at this point and I can't actually remember it.) Now, my family is convinced that she was flirting with me.

Based on my expierience being on both sides of customer service, I would not consider this normal practice, but my question to you is: at the very least, is that a reasonable assumption? My gut tells me that it's not, and even if it is a reasonable assumption I wouldn't know how to handle the situation, as it just feels fundamentally wrong to put somebody in that situation while at work.

Anyway, I know that's a weird question to ask here, but it's been bugging me for weeks and I thought putting it here might allow me to vent it out and also get a second opinion. Feel free to move right along if you have nothing to say.

I Got a Four Player Revive with Mercy!

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 10 2016 · 84 views



You can't hear it in the video as it's recorded from the main menu and not in game, but the rest of my team was singing praise for that.

I'm really proud of this moment. (It's even better that I got to spite a Junkrat because the amount of times a Junkrat player has burned their ult to hunt me down and kill me is just really too high.)

Oh hey, look there's my mouse. Can't fix it now...

Happy Birthday Metroid!

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 05 2016 · 92 views

This day (or tomorrow maybe?) Was when my favorite video game franchise launched. I wouldn't discover it until after the launch of Zero Mission. Which is still my favorite in the series.

I'm going to go celebrate by attempting to beat Prime.

WHY?

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Aug 01 2016 · 89 views

Okay, so, if you work in a building and see a bag has come off the edge of a trashcan and fallen in you have a couple options.

A: notify someone to fix the problem
B: fix the problem
C: ignore it and keep chucking your trash in it, it'll get fixed.

If you picked A or B, congrats, you are more competent than some of my coworkers. Give yourself a pat on the back.

Bonus points if you dump liquid in the trashcan...

The End of Bionicle. Again.

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Jul 29 2016 · 33 views

I'm honestly not surprised. I liked some of the 2015 sets and bought some of them, but the 2016 sets where mostly not to my liking. I don't even know what's happened in the story. I was a little sad about the news but I heard of some of the situations with the sets being not released in certain regions so I'm not surprised.

If nothing else the '15 Gali set was phenomenal so I have that to remember it by.

NES classic

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Jul 14 2016 · 36 views

This looks really cool, it has a pretty good selection of games, is pretty cheap, all things considered and the controller is cool. But I feel it accentuates just how expensive the games are to obtain on Nintendo's other hardware. At $5 a pop it would cost $150 to buy them all, assuming they're all available. I understand it took work creating the emulator and putting everything together, but that is one heck of a price difference.

And since it is so cheap, I bet it's going to be a long time before they hit shelves long enough to get one.

Still really excited though.

Work/CEO Visit

Posted by ~Shockwave~ , Jul 10 2016 · 29 views

A little while ago the CEO of the company I work for visited my place of work. Me being the sole janitor working there obviously had a lot of work to do. It was an exhausting week as you can probably imagine.

I was not able to stay, but several of my coworkers informed me that the CEO was very impressed at how well the place was kept up and that most branches don't put in much effort.

So that's pretty awesome. I wonder how many people can say that. Definitely an improvement over my last place of work.
