    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    [COLOR="DarkRed"][FONT="Garamond"][SIZE="3"]Finished [B]Mirror's Edge[/B] a while back. Had a great time, although I felt it was a bit short. Time trails are not really my thing, so I'll probably just play this game again at my own pace when I feel the need to play. I like exploring, although I do appreciate stringing together moves without dropping a beat. Feels good if I can keep it up for long periods of time. I can't wait for a sequel. I also got [B]Dead Space[/B] for pretty cheap as well. I don't even like survival horror, but I love this game. Great atmosphere for a game taking place mostly on a space station mining vessel thingy. I like little touches in there: an unique approach to killing enemies, the hub actually being a part of the game universe, rpg-like weapon upgrades (though limited), and that most of the weapons are just futuristic mining tools. I'm winding down near the end, and I'm satisfied with how many freaky moments were littered throughout. Can't wait for the sequel. I know a lot of new games have been just sequels to something previous so publishers can play it safe, but there are some games like these two I would support to see get continued.[/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    [COLOR="DarkRed"][FONT="Garamond"][SIZE="3"]I finally got my own current gen console with my Xbox 360 I got for Christmas. I also got [B]Gears of War [/B]2 and [B]Mirror's Edge[/B]. With [B]Gears[/B], I already had some experience playing at my friend's house online, but never actually got through the single player mode. I'm about halfway through Act 3 right now, but will continue as soon as I get mt copy I accidentally left at my girlfriend's house. I also have to get a controller soon for her, so we can play co-op together. As for [B]Mirror's Edge[/B], I am actually pretty surprised with how much fun I'm having with it. I'm about halfway through, and I'll prob give my final impression later on when I finish.[/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

    Stomach Flu...

    [COLOR="DarkRed"][SIZE="3"][FONT="Garamond"]Right now, I think the most important thing you need to do is stay hydrated. If it's stomach flu, you're going to lose a lot of fluids...not getting into that. Generally, I don't think of soda when I think of hydration, but I also heard things like ginger ale can help your stomach. I don't know for sure, but I do know sugar will probably hurt it a lot. You can never go wrong with water. And I'm not 100% sure what medicines to take, sorry about that. I had stomach flu about 4 years ago, and that was about as sick as I ever been. It did kill that weekend I was suppose to hang out with some buddies, so sorry if it does make you pretty sick for a few days. I didn't really eat at all either. After a day and a half of not feeling like eating, I forced myself to eat something small here and there. The worst part was that I had to stay in sight of a bathroom at all times...

    Music What Are You Listening To?

    [COLOR="DarkRed"][FONT="Garamond"][SIZE="3"]Currently listening to [B]21st Century Schizoid Man[/B] by 21st Century Schizoid Band (some remnants of King Crimson I believe). I've been looking into King Crimson only a little bit lately. I'm also trying to look for more prog rock groups along the lines of the Mars Volta and Muse.[/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

    Gaming What's Your Favourite Video Game Music?

    [COLOR="DarkRed"][FONT="Garamond"][SIZE="3"]I think [B]Donkey Kong Country[/B] deserves a honorable mention. I also like [B]Golden Sun[/B]'s various boss battle music. [spoiler]I know I'm forgetting a game, I just know it...[/spoiler][/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

    Anime What are You Watching/Reading Now?

    [FONT="Garamond"][COLOR="DarkRed"][SIZE="3"]Currently reading [B]Gantz[/B] after finishing watching the anime. I didn't like how the anime ended, and I heard that the manga is ongoing. Behind all the sex and gore, I think there is something kind of interesting about the premise. And hey, I've just noticed that Gantz and the World Ends With You has a lot of similarities. :animesmil[/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]

    The Padded Room Party: Random Thoughts

    [quote name='Nerdsy'][color=deeppink]I bought a guitar. Just now. I'm in an adventurous mood.[/color][/QUOTE] [COLOR="DarkRed"][FONT="Garamond"][SIZE="3"] I know the feeling. I was either going to buy a 360 or a drum kit for myself on my birthday. I just went with the drum kit, because I found a nice price and good shape for used. The heads were even recently replaced and already tuned. I can't afford lessons right now, so I'm trying my best to follow some pretty informative free online lessons I found. I wish you luck with your guitar. ...I kinda want BlazBlue right about now though.[/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

    The Pet Thread

    [COLOR="DarkRed"][FONT="Garamond"][SIZE="3"]I miss my maltese poodle. Well behaved and playful, but my mom sold him for the money she needed at the time. We had a small breed dog afterward a little later, but it was too much of a pain to house break, so it also got sold:animedepr. ...I'm buying my own pets when I get the chance. [/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

    What's Your Dream Car?

    [COLOR="DarkRed"][FONT="Garamond"][SIZE="3"]I too was a huge fan of Vipers when I was a little younger. I still really like them, but the look is starting to loose flare to me. Partly because my taste is sifting to the 60's 70's muscle car look. Also the fact that I'm tall, I'm starting to doubt I'll fit comfortably in a lot of fancy small sports cars. As far as Mustangs go, I was always a fan of the early 60's models, particularly the '64, because I like how those models' rear windshield part doesn't stretch or mold to the end of the trunk. [IMG]http://www.channel4.com/4car/media/100-greatest/03-large/45-ford-mustang.jpg[/IMG] I'm also a fan of the early 60's Impalas.

    [quote name='Botar'][COLOR="DarkGreen"]I think i've become a creature of the night. Sleep in till noon, stay up till 4 am.[/COLOR][/QUOTE] [SIZE="3"][FONT="Garamond"][COLOR="DarkRed"]I just hate mornings. well before I started working again, I was staying up till 5 a.m. and waking sometime from noon to 1p.m. The sad part was that I had to still use an alarm clock to wake up at that time. I think I'm doing a little better now going to bed from 2-3 a.m. and up at 9 for work. [/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]

    Gaming What Are You Playing?

    [FONT="Garamond"][SIZE="3"][COLOR="DarkRed"]I?m currently playing [B]Oddworld: Stranger?s Wrath[/B] were you play a mysterious looking bounty hunter just trying to survive. This happens to be the only Oddworld game I?ve ever played. I?m think I?m a little over half way through this game; judging how the story is twisting and turning. I guess my favorite part of this game has to be the main character Stranger. He has a slow old west style of speech, which can deliver some funny and badass lines. My next favorite part of the game is your only weapon, a doubled tracked crossbow that only fires live critters with unique abilities. I just finished [B]Phantom Dust[/B] about a month ago. I still like the battle system, but I really like the overall story, once it all plays out. The later part of the game was kind of thought provoking in my opinion. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

    Gaming Anticipating games

    [FONT="Garamond"][SIZE="3"][COLOR="DarkRed"]Yay, it looks like [B]Tatsunoko vs. Capcom[/B] is coming to the states. Now that I really think about it, it seems there are a lot of new promising fighters coming out very soon. One, which I?m really looking forward to, is [B]Blazblue[/B], after seeing more footage of it. Another game I?m kind of looking forward to is [B]Beyond Good and Evil 2[/B]. I haven?t played the first one, but I?m familiar with. It seems like a cult-hit kind of game I?ve been enjoying lately. Overall, this new game looks exciting. [/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
