Randy's boating experience

My friend, Randy, came over while I was snoozing at 9:30. He has this stern boat with the biggest Mercury motor that is legal for a boat that size and he bought it for 6500. We cruised around Star Prairie Wisconsin's Lake St. Croix. He talked about how the Canadians are down right rude, and they're living off our economy and such. Then I told him how the Chinese hate MPEG4 due to liscencing costs so they're doing their "AVS" for HD programming. I told him about how I use MPEG4 AVC like the US Military does now. I told him about the free one I use for Google Video. He talked about how there are many babes and parties along the lake, Old Milwaukee's NA beer, dead Crappies (because of Winter). Why we don't colonize Alaska (areas w/o permafrost) with big cities and have Domed MLB and NFL stadiums for the future cities. We could use the Boeing 737 or Boeing 777 as cargo plains for the new Alaskan cities. Then we talked about how we'll make Japan become a part of the union...have Tokyo as our largest city (3 US military bases are in Japan) or just buy out something like Jamaica or Aruba and make that a commonwealth, and clean it up considerably afterwards.

IT's not all it's cracked up to be

I was looking at the Crest of the Stars review ($50 anime franchise), because it got a really good score. I was going to buy it, but I thought well I'm really braindead Wednesday. So...I went to Youtube....streamed rip all 13 episodes via Replay A/V and converted the FLA to MPEG4 AVC *.mp4s with Total Video Converter and burnt it on DVD so i can take it to school to show how smart I am. And for some reason that movie got "sold out" GIF at Best So that's why I watched it in the first place.

After the 5th part, I started to believe it's not all it's cracked up to be. Just like Ghost in the Shell, Princess Mononoke, Final Fantasy VII Advent Children, Castle in the Sky, Akira, the Valley of the Wind, and Whisper of the Heart I got off Limewire Pro for free too.

I saved myself at least $120!

Wiivolution is leaked?

Wiivolution is a Wii /w a 160 GB hard drive and HDMI port, DVD video ready and it's been leaked onto the Internet. It's black instead of white. What is Nintendo up too this time? Is this another way to make people believe their current investment is outdated? If not a PC, don't understand what 160 GB is good for. I still do not have money to buy a Wii, and Super Mario Galaxy or Metroid Prime 3 Echoes aren't out yet so there is no point buying it... Wiivolution will cost $300 when it comes out between 27th of November thru 3rd of December.

I would ask this for Christmas if not for the Athlon 64 X4 and Socket AM2+ motherboard for the hellcat. I'm about done with videogames by November until I've completed college....I think.

Well, this is hte end of the long stretch. I passed my math and writing tests at Rasmussen College, and starting April 2nd. No more or little time spent on forums or gaming in general. On the forum, I posted my room and got an answer back so I posted my Linux screenshots. I'm starting courses, Strategy Successes, and English II (reading at a college level is online)

Almost new friend in the bag

Last Friday, I saw three Wiis at GameStop, but my Dad would get mad if I spent $250 on it. ESR is getting me a job in 1 week, because we pay them a lot too. Then I can afford a AM2+ motherboard for XMAS and Wii. Still buying those won’t bring people to my house now would it? I guess I want to start over in my gaming skills.

I haven’t blogged in a while, because school is much too important. Weather in Wisconsin is weird, yesterday there was a snow blizzard coming home fixing my cousin’s computer and today there was no snow by 9AM and it was a sunny spring day. It’s April! Maybe that would happen in March, but April is spring. So I got 60 for Easter, and $60 for setting up my cousin’s DSL. My cousin, Uli, was playing Fable on Xbox..he could care less about my connection. The younger one wanted to hook up the DSL and computer hookup. Going home was dangerous. This paid for 2 games practically including F1 Championship Edition I paid for PS3. I can get first place on Easy difficulty. F1 Championship Edition is more fun than Dreamcast’s F1 World Grand Prix (my favorite F1 game of last gen). The water effects are great.

At school, I am in the process of making a new friend Patrick. He’s nice, but he doesn’t know much about software and wants my help so I give him pirated PC games. I have to write an essay on myself and my visual pathways from the intelligence worksheet I’ve done in class, but the essay is negative and needs rewriting. I made my friend bob a few H.264 videos for his myspace blog asking him to come over so we could play games. It’s boring here in my room doing homework all the time. My classmate over usage of the word “crazy” bothers me.
And why aren’t we liking Iraqi war…it’s better than DEFCON2 in my opinion! That’s why those degrees of defense are in place.


I’m a little lost in the console war so trying to collect all the higher then 85% games out there including the ones for Wii as soon as I can find a job.

I'm feeling not okay

The thought crossed my mind to trade in my Xmas gift for a Wii with Zelda The Twilight Princess at Game Stop. I think the PS3 has enough value. The PS3 is brand new. If I can do this tomorrow than why do i feel bad? I should feel good that I'm about to own all three consoles.

Come on everybody, give me some pointers so i can go thru with it! My parents are angry at me for taking out $250 on a wii anyways.


Which was the best Sega console? I was playing Sonic Adventure 2 today and had some fun so I'm saying despite Genesis had games from 1989 to 1996, Dreamcasts life from 1998 - 2001 had better and more fun software then what Genesis had.

List of excellent Dreamcast games

Soul Calibur
Dead or Alive 2
NFL 2k1
Sonic Adventure
Sonic Adventure 2
Skies of Arcadia
Rayman 2 The Great Escape
Test Drive: Le Mans
Resident Evil Code Veronica

List of some decent, but still great choices for Dreamcast

F-355 Challenge
San Francisco Rush 2049
Daytona USA
Marvel vs. Capcom
Marvel Vs. Capcom 2
Crazy Taxi
Crazy taxi 2
Test Drive V-Rally
NFL 2k
F1 World Grand Prix
Hydro Thunder
Grandia II
Fatal Fury Mark of the Wolves
Resident Evil 2

Speed Devils

Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Sonic the Hedgehog 3
Shining Force
Shining Force 2
Phantasy Star IV

Castlevania Bloodlines
Lunar for Sega CD

Mortal Kombat II
Gunstar Heroes

Good reason to buy PS3 now.

Sony announced that PS2 emulation is [U]mandatory[/U] to get the price down so it can compete more with Xbox 360 and it badly needs this price reduction from what I heard. Sony is saying the list isn't complete with 100% (7/10 working) of PS2 games in the European market and there are glitches in the emulation for most games. The European countries are getting the first Emotion Engine[I]less[/I] PS3s soon and NTSC versions are next. So if you're planning on supporting is the time to get one. I betcha everyone will be looking for a used PS3 with full hardware acceleration and working BD-ROM once backwards compatibly becomes less then perfect.
