I'd love to have a legion of flying monkeys carrying a litter for a ride.

In other news, yesterday was a great day for my little baby Xbox. Picked up my pre-ordered copy of State of Emergency. Yes, it was a crappy game for the PS2. You just ran around in these little levels beating the crap out of things, just simple mindless mayhem that couldn't hold a candle to GTA3. But there's three reasons I got it.

  1. Custom soundtracks, due to the power of the Xbox. So I can lead a pack of gang members through a megacorporate district sticking it to the man to Leonard Cohen (towelboy, read that essay if you haven't), doing a tribute to Natural Born Killers. I can grab a rocket launcher and attack capitalist storefronts to Edgecrusher. Police officers of the coporation surround me and attempts to subdue me with nightsticks to It's Against the Law. Fuck yeah.
  2. Multiplayer, which wasn't a feature for the PS2. Co-op play, taking out the man with a friend, or deathmatch. And in deathmatch? You get to recruit tons of random rioters to your cause, until both of you are running around with a pack of thugs behind each of you, ready to run forward and beat each other up in a massive pile of weaponry and crunching humanity. Yum.
  3. $20.00 price tag. Due to the game's failure on the PS2, and the long time it took to come out for the Xbox, they're only charging a fraction of the normal price of a game for multiplayer fun!


So I look forward to playing it with kikibird and runstaverun.

I also picked up Shenmue 2. Hey, it was $10, and it's a gorgeous fucking game.

Finally, there's a new support group for people with no balls, noballs.

Having no balls requires offensive pink punishment?

Re: Well...

Ugh the Olsen twins. I told you never to flash that thing at me.

Really?

I thought I wasn't supposed to flash this at you?

Re: Really?

Both cause me to feel uncomfortable. Much like sand in a bathing suit.

I think the biggest disapointments in shenmue 1 were: (please note that I did not finish it, I got partially through disc 2 and stopped)

the extremely limited amount of fighting - there are approximately 3 fights on the first disc, one of them is a plot-oriented forced loss...

the almost unlimited amount of walking from place to place - there were approximately 30,000 km that you had to walk in real time on disc 1, if there had been a go-to feature, this game would have been 2 hours at the most

there was a kitten - I didn't care, and I didn't know japanese, so the thing about the kittens name made fuck-all sense to me. (apparently it was a cute name)

I had a hard time caring for my pompous, repetitive character...

it snowed, there was a car - I didn't care

but, on the positive side:
there are addictive collectables in vending machines that you can squander your money on if you still have some left from when you went to the arcade and squandered it in there playing video darts

in late december there's a guy who walks around dressed like santa, that was pretty cool



kingfox From: kingfox Date: March 28th, 2003 02:29 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

I heard about the santa guy

So, well worth $10, considering I get all that on DVD and get the sequel. Yay!

Eeeek!

Maybe if you showed some love to Xbox instead of dissin' it, it'd be different?
