Back again. Unfortunately.

I hope everyone had a sweet Thanksgiving. I know mine was super awesome because it was spent with my beautiful girlfriend, Rennnn. Unfortunately however, I am back in my home town and I start back my classes tomorrow 8:30 am sharp. So no real post tonight. I do have a few stories to recap from my trip. But that can wait until tomorrow.

But I do have one question...WHY IS STRING CHEESE SO DAMN GOOD???

That is a mystery that will baffle me forever.

In other news, I got to play a few games during my vacation so expect a review for them. In the up coming month or so I plan on reviewing Black Ops (before christmas), Monster Rancher 2, various iPhone/Droid games, and possibly Parasite Eve 1 and 2. This is assuming my ADD ass don't forget about this. Yeah.

Regh out.

Oh Snap: 360 overheat temp fix.

So I only have a few hours before I land and I get to see my beautiful girlfriend, Rennnn. Not Sure what the TSA is going to do to me. But oh well. That isn't why I am posting right now!

I am posting because I found a way to prevent a Xbox 360 from over heating while it is Horizontal! So lemme tell you how I discovered this...

So I was playing Modern Warfare 2 last night (yeah I know, not Black Ops, I am a loser. I plan on getting that after google pays me dammit!) and suddenly my Xbox over heated! At first I was scared because I saw red lights coming from my 360. I instantly jumped up and unplugged it from the power pack. Waited for awhile and then plugged it back in. The 360 told me that it over heated. So I shrugged it off, let it cool down and then jumped back in only to have it happen again. Now, with my minor knowledge in computers (and ventilation) told me that obviously the 360 wasn't getting enough air to the innards. So I left it on and searched around for the areas where the air was being vented. What I found out pissed me off...a lot. You know the little holes all along the top and bottom of the sides of the Xbox? Well that is where most of the venting takes place. Now why would the put ventilation holes on the bottom when they know most people are going to run the 360 while it is on it's horizontal.

Look. Vents on the Bottom and
Rubber raisers(?)

So the only solution would be to stand the 360 up vertically. Unfortunately for me, my entertainment center does not allow me to do this and I don't want my big ass 360 sitting out and about. So why would Microsoft make a faulty air vent? Obviously because they are money grubbing bastards. Aside from that though, I came up with a solution.

It's kinda like recycling
It is cheap and easy to do too! Basically, all you do is take 4 caps from water bottles or pop (soda, cola, coke, etc.) just make sure they are all the same size. Then put then under the xbox on the four rubber points that are supposed to lift the horizontal 360 up off the surface. This will greatly increase the air flow thus not allowing your 360 to overheat. Easy fix right? Now this probably won't work forever. But what do I care. With Crummy customer control and the prices going up on live, after this 360 croaks I am done with Xbox. All PS3 all the way.

That is all.

Regh out.

Life and times (non-review)

This is one of those post I posts when I am in deep thought about things. Yet really I am not thinking about too much. Just mainly about my flight out to see my lovely girlfriend Rennnn (be sure to check out her art blog) and the TSA Scan/physical I will be receiving from the wonderful TSA agents. I am really okay with receiving both. I don't care if the person behind the desk at the scanner gets an eye full of junk. Then if I don't pass that, I don't care if the inspector feels me up. I am going to make a dick comment like "shouldn't you buy me dinner first?" or something assy like that. Which may get my balls destroyed...Maybe I will rethink that half...

It is really hard to stay on topic here because I am watching The Daily Show and Jon Stewart is tearing Glen Beck a new one and it is causing me to laugh my balls off. Recomposing self now.

So where do I go from here? I mean I guess I could just start typing and see where that takes me. It has been awhile since I have done something like that. But that is hard to do when you are half asleep and don't really have a topic/anything to discuss. Uhh. Wendy's commercial just came on again...those damn nuggets look so good. OH I also want to see that new show Brew Masters. Why? Because I do enjoy the taste of beer. I like trying different beers, no matter how bad they taste (Dirty Bastard) or college kids dream (PBR!). Some meals just need a beer. Hot wings and a Beer. Amazing.

Well that was a wild ass and random tangent...I think I am going to go play some more diablo two. Because I am cool like that.

Regh Out.

Broken Promise = Game Review (Wolfenstein RPG)

Yeah yeah, I know. I haven't posted anything in awhile. I am cool with that. LOLS. I have just been getting a case of the lay-z's now that my second semester has started. I haven't had any homework yet so I have been taking this time to party...and play video games that I have not really had time for. Thus, making it so I can create more reviews for this Video Game/nonsense blog.

Moving on, at first glance you may notice something about this post. It is not my review on bad driving. But instead, Today I am putting in my two cents about an amazing game I played for the iPod Touch (also available on any iDevice including the iDouche) and (after some google searching) available on some Cellular Phones.


While I was cruising through the "app market" on my iPod touch, I came across a game with a familiar title. But one thing about it threw me off. It said Wolfenstein RPG. This made me WTF so I clicked on it. Then I went to google and started doing some wicked mad research on what this game was. According to all the websites I went to, it was a pretty decent play. Of course, I downloaded it.

I instantly fell in love with it because Wolfenstein is my favorite Nazi shooter ever...don't look at me that way, Call of Duty Zombies doesn't count as a Nazi Shooter because they are Nazi Zombies. Jeez. The graphics were slightly different. But I was cool with it because the...

for the game was rock solid. Basically, every move you make in the game is a turn. Based off that statement, if you turn in place, you don't use a turn. Move Forward, Back, Side to Side, or make an action you use a turn. For some reason, most of your enemies are able to make an attack then side step out of the way, I never figured out if your character can do that too...but either way Oh well. To add a buff feature to the game, throughout every level there are syringes and syringe making machines where you mix colors to create different types of syringes. What the syringes do are buff your character in different ways. Such as doing 100% more damage or moving at 50% your normal speed (which I think just gave you an extra action on your attack...). You will be healing yourself A FUCKING LOT. So don't go skimpy on your Medpacks or Chocolate Num Num bars. Yes. There are items in the game called Chocolate Num Num Bars. You will also find yourself kicking the crap out of chickens in this game. Why? Because Kicking causes the chicken to go flying and doesn't use any ammo and the Chicken (once dead) turns into a one time healing item. Making everyone a winner.

What other games has Nazis and Chicken in an RPG package?
OH! I guess I should explain the way  weapons work. Like I said when you make an action, that is your turn. That can be anything from healing, Buffing, or (what I am about to talk about) attacking. When it is your turn, you choose what weapon you want to use. Some weapons work better against different enemies. After selecting your weapon, you tap the screen to use it (on the iPhone/iTouch versions). Depending on which weapon you chose, you will shoot only the number of times that weapon allows you to shoot per turn. Most of you are probably now all "wait what?" Let me give you an example to better show what I am talking about.  A Nazi guard jumps out in front of you. You have your knuckles equiped but he kicks you away. Now, obviously the knuckles are a close range weapon. So you switch to...idk...your double pistols. You tap the screen and your character shoots twice (one from each pistol). Now, same situation, except this time you use the Thompson. Unlike the Pistols, The Thompson shoots three times. If it hits each of the three times, you do more damage. Every weapon has a specific number of times it can be shot per turn and you can only target one enemy at a time (because the layout is classic Wolfenstein style).

On top of all buffs and stuff. There are also extra buffing (or in some cases, debuffing) from reading books you find throughout the game. They never really do anything good for you because by the time you find them you have killed off most of the enemies in the area, but some will give you a buff for 30 - 50 turns. The debuff ones will only last 30. Every time. The books offer nothing to the story and you can choose to not even read them. But they really don't hurt to much, so I read them all. They are usually only about a paragraph long (with the exception of the love novels) but have some funny quotes in them.

If there was one, I skipped through it. The game itself was riddled with way too many jokes to take seriously. But there was some what of a story. You are an american who gets stuck behind enemy lines and basically you decide to play "We're not gonna take it" on repeat and start killing Nazis and the dark forces that they are conjuring up from hell. Or something like that.

Did you like the sounds for Wolfenstein? Well you are going to like them for this game too. All your favorite sounds are there! Like the Handgun. Dual Handguns. Flamethrower. ETC. ETC.

I don't know if I would pay over $5 for this game. Luckily, EA and ID bumped the price down on this game, so I think at most you have to pay $1.99 which is quite a steal for this game. Mind you I probably will not be playing this again despite how much I enjoyed it just because there will be no surprises. You Wolfensteiners out there will probably play it over a few times. All and all I give this a 6.75 out of 10. (it would have been higher, but I played DOOM II RPG right after this one...let's just say that is my next review and it will be getting a better score.)

If you have a cell phone that can play games, check it out and see if you can get this game. It is well worth the two dollars just for the interestingly different gameplay. It is a great time waster that isn't too long. Best of all, it didn't kill my battery life.

Until I write the DOOM II RPG review, Stay Classy and Fuck you San Diego.

Regh out.

I know I promised a post 4 days ago...

But I decided I didn't want to post yet because I decided making some OC pics will make the post 1,000,000x better. So expect that in the near (or far) future.




p.s. 11 days, 17 hours, 27 minutes until I am sitting next to Rennnn posting. Or not posting. I haven't decided yet.

Why I think internet streaming of TV Shows should be perfectly legal

Because I don't want to pay for a Whole season of "How I met your mother" just to watch one episode...

Maybe if there was a CHEAP (Dollar or to a month) online subscription site, I would pay that fee as long as the streams were reliable, fast, and not Megavideo Quality...JUST SAYING.

Okay, usually I am not moved by anything that has to do with Government, but when I heard about COICA I had to post this.

To my understanding, Basically the government will have two blacklists. Read the link or if you know what it is sign the petition to try to prevent this from being passed. Chances are, it will be passed and the internet will cease to be fun. Not to mention websites with anything that is up without the persons consent will be die. Say good bye too all the streaming websites and 4chan.

I don't want to go into the details because I do not fully understand it yet and chances are that this will be passed. I just wish they would see that this is exactly what China and Iran do with their internet. HURRAY FOR OPPRESSION.
