First Session

Well, the players have entered the dungeon, and they seem to be doing pretty well for themselves. They killed 5 hobgoblins, a wolf, a lion, and a Jaguar.

Yesterday, they created a bunch of zombies, killed some more Hobgoblins, and nearly died in the fight.

They weren't happy with the LEGO representations of themselves, though. Here's the new cast.

... And After

Well, how's it look?

The World's Biggest (GURPS) Dungeon

I've been working on the ultimate GURPS Dungeon. It will contain every GURPS monster and Magic Item. The first characters to attempt to conquer this dungeon have been designed. Will these brave men defeat the innumerable dangers before them?

Probably Not.

Halo 2 Review

Now that Halo 2 has been out for a couple years, I felt it was time that I gave it a review.

Overall, it is quite good, and makes many improvements over the original. Anyone who says that losing the pistol is bad is either crazy or a liar. The only real problem is that the game is pretty clearly unfinished. I'm not refering to the ending, which I didn't mind.

What I'm talking about is the crazy degree of pop-up that occurs in the game. It's surreal when you see people floating in mid-air for several seconds before their chairs appear under them. And this happens in cutscenes! It's completely absurd.

Another indicator of an unfinished game is when the people who made it say that they cut out three levels.

Anyway, the game has a good deal of Ron Perlman as Lord Hood. He is not, however, the protagonist, or even a starring character.

Halo 2 final rating:
3/5 Ron Perlmans.

Ultra Summaries

If you've never been, I highly suggest Book-A-Minute. It's a lot of fun.

Unfortunately, it seems that they stopped updating it some time ago. I thought I would continue the tradition. As my first book, I chose the Bhagavad Gita:

The Bhagavad Gita

(A battle is about to begin.)

Arjuna: Should I fight these people, even though some are friends or family?

Krishna: Yes!

-The End-

I'm thinking about buying an iPod. They seem to be pretty nice, but until lately I've been happy without one.

That was until I found out you can have them engraved for FREE.

Just imagine, if you will, an iPod that looks like this:

I guess you don't have to imagine, there it is. Witness the glory!

Breaking news from E3!

E3 is pretty cool. Everyone has all of their coolest stuff to show off there.

I just watched the new trailer for MGS4, and man is it awesome.

Coolest moment? The return of everyone's favorite character, seen below.

That's right! The cardboard box is back! Hooray!

I just took my Calc II final. Let's just hope I pass. I know this is what I hoped for Calc I, but the hope is more tenuous this time.

Horror movies suck

It seems that there's a cottage industry of horror films. They crank out what seems like one every month, and they all have the same freaking "creepy" kid!

I know that the people who make these movies have no imagination, but that doesn't mean that they have to make the exact same movie. If someone made a horror film without a "creepy" kid, I would award them with some ficticious award.

I suppose the first person to use it can't really be blamed, so they are excused. Now I just have to go back and find the first work of fiction that uses children as a symbol of innocence in front of a "frightening" situation.

Not really worth the effort of looking.

For the purposes of this claim, I don't include "slasher" films, (which suck even harder) as horror. I'm talking about psychological horror, which seems to need a child as a voicebox to allude to what's going on, but not actually help.

Silver Lining to Every Cloud

I just ran out of tortillas. It's pretty sad, really. It's particularly sad because I make an awesome burrito.

On the other hand, I just found a pair of pants which I really like. I had forgotten they existed. They are really cool. The waistband is just the right circumphrence for my for my torso-region.

I just don't know how to feel about these developments.
