So I'm looking at my harddrive, and I've got quite a few XBLA games that most people haven't ever played. "Carconasse" is one of them, and "Undertow" is another. Both were gotten for free, during a time when XBL had strange outages that went for days at a time, and to make up for it, Microsoft set an arcade game to be free for a limited amount of time. The first time this happened, "Carconasse" was made free for a short time. I downloaded it mainly because it was free, and kept it ever sin
Today I would like to try and settle something that I’ve noticed has been going on for a while on the internet. This involves the “Big Three” of the Shonen Jump world. Mostly between who is the strongest between the three main characters, Luffy, Naruto and Ichigo. So, trying to stand from an objective standpoint I’m going to analyze each of them through three different points: Beginning Most Tragic defeat recovery Current Level If anyone wants to ask or discuss the levels of any other time,
Yes, I had a title, but then I forgot it. Then again, I suppose the question should be raised, why am I typing a blog at this hour? No idea. Today's random rambling: the movie HUGO. I was actually surprised at how this movie did tie into the real life George Melies, who did exist and did make hundreds of films. Even more surprising was that the lady he was living with towards the end of his life, was, at one point, his Mistress. That was a shocker. Why a shocker? I've taken a few film c
Hello and welcome to "Mindless Ramblings from The Core". I am your scribe and rambler, and I do hope you'll enjoy my work. If not, then whatever. So, what are a few of the topics I may ramble about? I'm glad you asked! (And if you didn't ask, well, too bad) A few of the things I may discuss are Professional Wrestling (WWE), Video Games (Consoles/Portables/PCs), Books, Movies, Music (rarely), Webcomics, and lastly, whatever comes to mind. This would probably be much more efficient as a pod
So this weekend I caved into the begging and found myself at the movie theaters instead of at home watching the AllStar game( Which I, of course, recorded). I went with my ex to go see Chronicle. In hindsight, it was a mistake but I still had fun. Anyway, back to the topic, I found myself waaaay into this movie. I was totally sucked into everything that was going on. Though at first it started off a bit bumpy, I soon learned to get to know the characters and was taken aback by the first casualty
OK, folks, it's time for another rant. The obvious choice would be all those laws concerning the Internet, but I have nothing to say that hasn't already been said. So, instead, I present you with a different complaint I've been dealing with of late: chronological confusion in video games. Let me start at the beginning. I have a buddy who is a major Legend of Zelda fanboy; nice guy, but has an unhealthy obsession with the series. He, like many other hardcore LoZ fans, has developed his own time
"Seas of dreams and nightmares" The Great Lakes were the only taste of sea I ever got in my life. It didn't matter to me though, because it was life, and my dream, to be a seafaring captain. Since I first saw my great grandfather's bronze compass, I imagined my own adventures on the ocean, battling pirates, finding treasure, and claiming new lands for myself on the unknown map of Earth. By now you've figured that out, but assuming that would be giving you too much credit. However, I'm afraid I
"Who is Reginald Chance?" "Callum, old chum do you realize the implications of what you're saying?", the jester shouted. "I know what I'm doing," Callum replied sternly. "But...but, I mean no more sorting, and... I'll be stuck forever in Sod's Law forever." "You're too much of a danger Funny Man," Callum retorted. "I can't keep using your presence to destroy my enemies." Packing the lease documents into his briefcase, Callum flung on his feathered fedora and headed towards the front door. "I
A while ago, I explained my absence with illness. Now, I come and blame it on my computer. See, my usual activities around here are done via my laptop. Show of hands, now, anyone got an idea why this might be a bad thing? ... Time's up. If you said something along the lines of, "you have a really crappy laptop with a history of acting ridiculous", then you'd be absolutely right. (this is the same reason I haven't done anything on DeviantArt, not that anyone cares) In other words, to be o
There are always the big names and their extended family. Then there are characters who ooze with potential and character who get put on the back burner for another series or twelve for Wolverine. 5. Power Pack Given powers by a dying pony alien the powers decided to become costumed super heroes. (Lightspeed was Rainbow Dash before it was cool) Often times relegated to being a crossover once in a while (usually with the FF Wolverine or Spider Man) They have more potential. How to Fix it: Either
Been a long time since I've used this blog. And as it stands, I figure....Why not use it for this? And so I dedicate this work to the players who make the room a wonder, the imaginations which make our adventures fun, and the epic-ness of a story that started with a simple tournament. None of the characters belong to me. All that I own now, is the claim that I was there since the beginning..... -Hugo Fowl It was the end of the world as they knew it. A small group, having made it to the end
Purpose. Noun and/or verb. Meaning: The reason. Only two syllables but so much to learn. The purpose of life, existence, if there is one. But thats whats people have been asking since he decided to stop being a fish, or made out of clay... Whatever the hell started us. Is there a purpose to the lives we lead? Is everyone important? Is every life pointless? Why the hell am I asking all these answerless questions? Because I ****ing feel like it. Thats why! This word is so big it leaks into my
5.TIE Part 1Dragonball Z More here out of nostalgia than being a well plotted show. It offers relief in its simplicity. You know who your badguys and your good guys are. Beating each other up occurs, kamehameha Plot resolution. It offers the wonderful satisfaction of seeing something dying. Its like hunting but without standing in the cold for hours. Downside: Plot? Character Development? Chance of killing damaging life if discovered: 15% Part 2 My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Picked for th
Before we get into this, note that these are my favorite anime series. Doesn't mean they are the best, just what I enjoyed the most. 5. Case Closed Plot: High school detective witnesses a crime he shouldn't have, and is forced to take an experimental drug that should kill him quietly right? WRONG! Instead he is transformed into a kid again, and now has to solve crimes with his girlfriend's father (who's a drunken moron) in an attempt to find out who these people are that did this to him an
Hello and welcome back ladies and gentlemen! This is Marvel's Corner! No, you are not having that dream where Marvel Man updates his blog. No, this is actually happening. So sit right back and I'll tell you how I became the Prince of Blogs. And afterwards we'll discuss some Japanese Animation.Â ----------------------------------------------------- Tonight's Topic: Marvel Man's Top 5 Anime List Of All Time Before we begin, we have to take a look at what an anime is. We'll explore the origi
So I figured I just post about a few character ideas for a rewrite that I thought might be a good idea on a blog entry vs on the boards because well for all I know it'll either be locked or all of them have been done. So to start with Doc. Oct from Spiderman, I would love to see him actually as a hero and not as a villian in an alternate universe. Watching the decent from losing everything still, but instead, Peter helps Doc. out and raises him back up, even revealing the fact that he is Spid
Well, its like this thing was yelling at me. Which when you see, "DAMAGINGROB HASN'T MADE ANY ENTRIES YET!", with an exclamation point no less, you kind of get that feeling. And why are we only allowed to go up to the year 2009? That's odd... Anyways, yeah, I got nothin' right now. Wasn't that just a huge waste of your time? I'd also like to know how my blog recieved over 800 views before I put anything in here. People really want to see my thoughts that badly?
Well, here I am, folks. A month's hiatus and the best you're getting is a quick blog entry. I tend to doubt many of you really noticed my absence, but I still feel the need to explain myself, since I was signed up for a couple of things. I've been pretty sick the last month. I won't bore you with the details, but suffice to say, don't ever catch anything that causes your life to come to a grinding halt. I missed a bunch of tests at school, which I had to make up, an on top of everything else,
Deep within my mind the chambers of mysteries howl far beyond anyone's comprehension. I wish it were simple, or easier to explain to people, but let's face it, my mind has enough configurations, that a mouse couldn't understand it, much less anything far more sapient. Yeah in truth, you'd expect me to say I'm a detective, a killer, or a fool, but really Idon't know what I am. The stars though, they are the only true friend I've had, in particular the salt star, the one that hovers above the dese
I'll keep this short and sweet, thanks for viewing my blog, I'l try and post things such as my own stories, including chapters and the like that I feel like writing. Feel free to look around, comment, and do whatever.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! OK. Remember to scream out any sadness or frustration at the end of the day. You'll still hate life but at least you get to scream.
