Howzit been, folks?

I know I've been gone for a while, but I suppose I can come here with more frequency.
TF2 eats away a lot of my time, now.
College is... interesting. Monday - Thursday schedule, ftw.
NG loads slower than I remember. =/

No class on Monday means 4-day weekend. WOOO!

Boo.

I guess I'll pop in here from time to time.

I play TF2 quite a bit, so for those of you that have a Steam accout: NGAlexJS

NG loads slower than I remember. =/


Stuff. It goes down.

So... yeah. Shit goes down.

First thing I feel like discussing; Spanish AP Literature. I hate it. If you don't have this class, I'll give you a general idea of it. If you have a Spanish class and an English class, try to think how it would be to have both of those classes in the time frame of one of them, with all homework assignments to boot. Yeah. That bad. Since this is the 8th level of Spanish out of the required 6, I don't really need it, so I'm dropping it. No sense in keeping an extra class if it all it is a bunch of extra work.

Second, you'll notice I don't stop by here very much. Maybe I got tired of it, or I don't know what, but I do show up every so often. I do still use AIM constantly, so my AIM is posted there, if you ever happen to need it. Hacking SMW does take up a lot of my free time when I'm not lazy. Speaking of which, I don't really want to do anything until status bar issues are resolved. And I got to find out how to... do other stuff. If anyone wants to volunteer to do graphics for an overworld, contact me, and I'll tell you how. Doesn't take much getting used to, but I can't do both at once.

Third... did I mention I'm taking psychology classes on Saturday?


Sorry about disappearing like that.

Some of you got it right. I was told we were going to take a vacation to the Dominican Republic in very short notice. But I'm back now. =3

Currently, I'm still hacking Super Mario World. For those of you that don't know, I'm basically making new levels and adding new elements into the game (like blocks that add time or put a star into your reserve, Hammer/Boomerang/Fire Bros., and other stuff). It's mainly done with a program called Lunar Magic (more info and download here) to edit levels and some graphics, and other programs to insert blocks and sprites. After you get the hang of it, it's not at all hard. You just need the resources.

Also, I'm still up for Smash and Mario Kart. Give me your Friend/Wii code so I can demoli-... I mean... play a friendly game?

Oh, and if you really need to get in touch with me, I recommend you IM me through AIM, it's a lot faster. =3 (NGAlexJS@aol.com)

On a final note, wouldn't it be nice to be able to make our own level icons and use them?

Sorry about disappearing like that.


OH SNAP!

My Internet service was changed, and the position of my router was changed. Right now, I either need an absurdly long Ethernet cable or a wireless card, so I can only use my Wii.

Sorry to all who needed me for anything. I'll pass by here as much as possible. Leave your Wii Code so I'll respond faster.

WC: 2880-6610-1988-9358
Still available for MK:Wii and Brawl, of course. =3


O HAI!

Sorry about being a bit late on this.

Yahtzee reviewed Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

It seems he focused more on the concept of the game rather than the game itself. There was so much potential for hilarity, but instead we got a biased sort of review...

Oh well. Wednesday's will be better, perhaps?

I got an R4. YAY! Now I can play any DS game I want! Wi-Fi works too! Although it did cost a bloody arm. ($70 + $25 for mSD Card)

Mario Kart Wii comes out tomorrow. I may or may not get online immediately, but I'll do it as soon as possible. I wanna play some single player first to get the hang of it.

<EDIT>
Friend code is 5155 3317 0868
Register me and post your code here. PRONTO.

Here's a few links. =3


Do you wanna be the guy?

Last week, Yahtzee reviews Condemned 2: Bloodshot
I added a set of links to stuff here.

Are you a bad enough dude to become The Guy?

Did you say yes?

You don't know what you're in for.

In I Wanna Be The Guy: The Movie: The Game (there was a movie?), a tribute to old-school gaming, you'll play as The Kid, making his way past several obstacles in his quest to become The Guy.

There's one MAJOR problem with that. The slightest brush with any spike or enemy will make The Kid explode in a shower of blood.

"Oh, but there can't be that many obstacles, right?"

Wrong. And on so many levels.

There are rooms literally LINED with spikes, things that kill you come out of absolutely nowhere, and there are bosses.YES, BOSSES. You have to fight bosses that takes several dozen hits, while you can only take one.

The game is split up by difficulty levels, Medium, Hard, Very Hard, and Impossible. The easier the level, the more save points you get, and believe me when I say they're a godsend. You get NO save points on Impossible, and there's not a single person that's cleared the game on that difficulty level. All you can do is double jump, and shoot. You don't get any powerups or upgrades whatsoever.

Why would someone play this game? 'Cuz it's so damn hilarious.
Download it for yourself and try. Scroll down at the download page for a full download. If you think you won't make it very far, just download the demo. If you change your mind, your saves can be transferred.

The following is a video from a user called cloud8745 of YouTube, and it's of the first few rooms in the game, and I'm not kidding when I say, THEY GET HARDER. There are 29 parts of these videos, which I haven't watched to prevent spoiling it, and they're hilarious.

.
/* */
NOTICE: The game really isn't as glitchy as the video would have you believe, only running a recorder will make it glitch a lot. His double jump doesn't respond at times due to the fact that the runs off the ledge without jumping.


I got Vista, lol.

This week, Yahtzee reviews No More Heroes.

I'm gonna try making these weekly.

Anywho, I got Vista. It looks awesome. I don't have any of the problems anyone seems to report. Ya know why? I'm still secretly running XP. It just LOOKS like Vista.

How did I do that? Wouldn't you like to know?

Also, I'm still available for Brawl, Mario Kart when it's out in the US, and I'm playing through EarthBound.

Oh, and the SSBC tourney has started.

I got Vista, lol.
