I finally got a blog! =D I applied for Premier membership the day before BZPower went down last week-ish (I don't actually know because I was away, continue reading to find out where). I sat bored and excited for BZPower to come back up because I wanted to blog! But then after ~3 days of boredom, I had to go to Sabattis for Boy Scouts for a week.
Sabattis was great this year. Its only my second year up, but last year it was raining and I (and everything else) was constantly wet. The water was
cold freezing and for some bizarre reason, I did Polar Bear swim and Swimming Merit Badge. <<
This year was great though. It rained for an hour at one time at most while we were awake and was sunny and comfortable the rest of the time. No humidity FTW! I got 5 Merit Badges =D and just need the conference and review for Star. Also I saw a bear 4 times, and of course scaring it away was tons of loud fun.
I received my end of a trade while I was away, which was Maxilos and a bunch of gunmetal parts. I have to say Maxilos is pretty cool and poseable unlike what I thought previously from the pictures. Also getting new Lego sets and new parts is always fun.
And E3! I can't believe the one week I go away for, so much happens, but I am very disappointing with Nintendo. Wii Music could be fun, but looks like a gimmick like Wii Fit. I wonder why. Wii Motion Plus is just down right wrong. That technology should have been in the Wiimote in the first place, and now you need an attachment that is a whole inch and a half long to use it? They aren't even putting it in the Wiimote? No, just no. If it was in every Wiimote instead of being an attachment, maybe it could be good, but as an attachment it is horrible. Wii Speak is another pointless accessory, well not as pointless as Wii Motion Plus and Wii Balance Board. All of these things should have been with the Wii from the start and now you have to pay ~$20 for each thing. << Also how much will Resort cost? I may have missed it, but if it is with a sleeve and Wii Motion Plus, I am assuming $50. I will not spend $50 I was super psyched for Animal Crossing, but then I realized it is still just Animal Crossing. What I really want is a MMORPG or at least a MMOG. Pokemon would be a likely and awesome candidate. So in a nut shell this is what Nintendo did. "Here are some more accessories that should have been here from the start. Here are some sales figures showing we are the best. Here are some pointless games. We will take all the casual's money to win this war and not pay attention to the hardcore." <<
Gaaah!! There is just so much to do when you miss a week of the "real world". If I miss anything major or mess anything up, just point it out. Also it is kind of hard to get back into things when you go away for a week. Like last year I stopped playing Pokemon because of Sabattis and this year posting and MoCing is hard getting back into.
