Wet makes me wet.

Not really. Ew. Why'd I say that? Anyway, I just played the demo and I gotta say this game looks pretty sick. I'm surprised to see how much they put into the presentation of the game opposed to the gameplay itself. The game alone seems like a very standard 3rd person shooter, a lot like Wanted: Weapons of Fate if you've ever played that, and it has a few features that keep it unique. For example; Rubi (the main character) has the ability to go into slow-mo while shooting if you jump, run along walls, or slide and there is an arena style segment where you have to disable spawn points while keeping up a multiplier so your health regenerates.
But what really captivates me about Wet is the design. Throughout the demo everything is like a really old movie. You get the slightly browned effect going on in the screen and there are a few parts where you even have the line things that I can't for the life of me remember its name. There is also a part where Rubi has blood splattered on her face and she goes into some kind of berserker and goes on a rampage. When that happens, the screen goes completely red and all of the characters become pitch black, spraying white blood when they're killed. The only way I can describe this game is that it's like playing a Quentin Tarantino movie. What do you guys think?
While you guys were flabbergasted by E3...

...I went out and bought the third installment in the Red Faction series.
I'll tell you what, this game is some of the most fun I've had screwing around. All of the destruction, explosions and weapons really turn this game into something to be reckoned with for 09. Even though the character development and story is poor, the game is kind of like playing Crackdown. You get missions, you complete missions, you blow shit up, AND IT'S INCREDIBLE! I've barely skimmed the surface of this game and I've already spent 7 hours playing it.
I want to say more about this game but I'd rather just jump right in and get through the campaign and start multiplayer, which I hear is really fun. Anyway. If you're near a Gamestop and you have some extra dough, this game is a definite buy, and should even be thrown on the FFF roster.
We have confirmation.

I was really frustrated last night trying to figure out what could possibly be wrong with my Xbox. Did Gears 2 cause it to overheat (that's when my Xbox started and then Red Ring'd)? Is there something my modem is doing that causes only single player games to work without a problem? Do I have to much HD space taken up?
Sure enough, my Xbox only had 1 gig of memory left and I decided to clear off everything from games I don't play any longer. Got rid of some map packs for Xbox Originals and old games, removed some DLC for Rock Band I only played once and retired, and then I noticed something. All of the past data I had from Halo 3 (maps, game variants, etc) was still on there... And taking up space! With that I'd like to inform everyone to check back on their old Halo 3 data when the next chance comes.
Also, I installed CoD: WaW and my Xbox is running great. It hasn't overheated once yet and I'm going through the campaign on Veteran. That probably isn't a good idea because I hadn't gone through campaign on a lower difficulty, but it's surprisingly easy.
So once I get my new HD on Xmas I'll be able to rejoin the GearHeads on their GoW shenanigans. Until then, you'll be able to find me on Treyarch's Call of Duty.
I bid you adieu.

Of course it was bound to happen again, my Xbox bit the dust, no big deal.
I thought that anyway. Tomorrow marks the 3 year anniversary of Microsoft's ridiculously faulty video game console and also the expiration of the warranty. Gears 2 is a great game, I love it, but honestly I just don't care as much for video games as I used to. Not only is it my senior year in high school and I have a lot more freedom now that I have a car and a flow of cash. I'd hate to say it, but I may have grown out of video games. Ever since I was 4 I've played video games. Hell, the first game my dad bought me was Doom for the Sega Genesis. Games just aren't appealing to me as they were before and now that my Xbox is trash, I don't feel the desire to replace it anymore. I'm sick of it.
So with that, I plan on leaving behind my 360. It has caused way too many problems and the amount of discs it has broken isn't worth it now. I won't be quitting games for good though. I'll still try to get on occasionally (my brother has an Xbox) and I'll still try to participate in Gearhead shenaniganry, but no longer will I play Xbox like I used to.
It's time to close this dryer. The t-shirts are done.

For those about to skate...

Okay. So after a couple months Microsoft decided to finally bring down the banhammer on my name. So I get on to change it and it says "Please sign on to the Xbox Live Marketplace and change your GT blah blah blah." Couple seconds later I get "Your gamertag is blah blah blah please change it before you continue using Xbox Live."
HOW THE FUCK AM I SUPPOSED TO CHANGE IT IF I CAN'T SIGN IN!? Is there another way of doing it?

Yeah, I've been really lazy and I haven't gotten a chance to send out a message to my friends yet.
So just a heads up incase you're wondering, "who the hell is Dixi Normas?"
Also, my birthday today. Now I can legally buy M-rated games.
This was a triumph.

I'm making a note here: Still Alive is free DLC for Rock Band.
What the hell!?

What are the chances you get paired up with a Gearhead while doing matchmaking?
My little brother just got put into a game with Grymm and I pretty much just crapped my pants after seeing his name on the opposing team. :|

I'm on week 2 without cable and internet that isn't being borrowed from my neighbors and it has been worse than hell. :(
So I decided to take up reading in my vast amounts of off-time while I'm not trying to get my license. I've been reading mostly novels based off video games (Resident Evil, Warcraft, etc.), Stephen King books and stuff my English teacher recommends to me.
Have you guys ever heard of "Haunted" by David Ha-something? It's a story about how a group of writers get trapped inside a large building and during their stay they must come up with their "masterpiece." So half the book is what is going on with the captives, while the other half is mini-stories that each person, most of which are true. But one of the first stories in is by far the most **ed up things I've ever read, true story also. As much as I'd love to go into the disgusting detail, I suggest picking it up and reading it if you already haven't. :D

I've been a member of this sight for over a year now and I have had many, many, many great experiences with almost everyone in the community. So in honor of the site I have composed a haiku based on one of my most memorable moments.
Ding. That ominous sound.
I pop the dryer open...
The T-shirts are done.
Add to the collection if you'd like. :D
No.... Nooooo... NOOOOOOOOOO

Well, incase you're wondering of my premature departure before tonight's FFF...
My mom came in, bitching at me of course, and in the midst of her alcohol fueled rage she knocked over my Xbox... Yes, right in the middle of a god damn game too.
Now what? Well, tomorrow I'm going to get the game replaced. Shame it can't compensate for the day I had time to end an FFF. :( At least there's always next week.
