So I was gonna do this thing where I would play a different game for one hour each day for 40 days, and I wouldn't be able to play any other video games except from the one scheduled for that day.
But then I remembered that I'm going to Jamaica for like 8 days, have cadets that kill Mondays, that Thursdays are the worst creation known to man, and that I'd have to give up Team Fortress 2 for at least a good 39 days.
I going down to Jamaica on a mission trip during the March Break, so I had to get some shots today. I managed to get out of two or three (thank goodness), but I still had to get Typhoid, Hep. A part 1, and the standard flu shot.
Hep A and flu(I think) in the left, Typhoid(?) in the right.
Suffice it to say that my left arm is perfectly fine while my right arm is in typical pain. Why can things not be reversed...
Feb 22 2012
Can't wait to see the movie; this one and The Hobbit are my big two for the year, no questions asked.
Actually, I should dedicate an entry to The Hobbit. Expect one tomorrow or the next day. But onto The Hunger Games!
I entered a scholastic contest where we had to send in the first five pages of a story that takes place in the future. The grand prize is an all expenses paid trip to the premiere of The Hunger Games film, and a box set of the books (which I am lacking in). So I'm hoping I win, though I'll still see the movie if I don't.
My entry was about a kid who lives in a giant concentration camp in the time period of 2040-2060, where the city of Little Rock is currently located. But it's totally different in the sotry. Also, in the story the world has been divided into three by the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, and Japan after an Axis victory in World War 2.
I was extremely disappointed with both the editors and the readers this time around; especially the readers, because Rayman Origins received not one single award from them.
Xenoblade Chronicles better get Wii game of the year for this year, or someone is being hunted down. I'm just saying. Anyway, now I'll share my choices for each of the awards (from the choices that were available):
Wii Game of the Year - Rayman Origins 3DS Game of the Year - Mario Kart 7 (would've chosen Star Fox 64 3D, but...) DS Game of the Year - Solatorobo: Red the Hunter Downloadable Game of the Year - The Legend of ZeldA: Four Swords Anniversary Edition
Best Wii Graphics - Rayman Origins Best 3DS Graphics - Star Fox 64 3D Best DS Graphics - Radiant Historia
Best Original Soundtrack - Rayman Origins Best RPG/Strategy - Radiant Historia Best Adventure Game - Solatorobo: Red the Hunter Best Racing Game - Mario Kart 7 Best Sports Game - Don't Care Best Shooter/Action Game - Star Fox 64 3D Best Fighting Game - Don't Care Best Multiplayer - Rayman Origins Best Platformer - Rayman Origins
Best New Character - Don't Care Best Story/Writing - Radiant Historia Best New Idea - Playing as and interacting with shadows (Lost in Shadow, Wii) Best Retro Revival - Star Fox 64 3D Best Stereoscopic 3D - Star Fox 64 3D
As said above, had they given the option I would've voted for Star Fox 64 3D to take home the 3DS game of the year award.
Now that I've recounted 2011, I feel like I want to once again mention the games I'm currently looking forward to in the year ahead.
We were supposed to have one in one of my classes today, but then the teacher dumped a huge note on us and taught us how to do something for the rest of the period, something that should take fifteen minutes max.
So we're supposed to have a debate tomorrow, and it sounds like we'll have a similar situation, and it'll be that way the whole semester.
It's FINALLY coming! Huzzah! And to celebrate, I stole an image from the TF2 blog to use as my signature and then took part of that image out to make a matching avatar. Huzzah for my wonderful editing skills.
