  1. LR2 log - 20110909

    All songs are Double play charts, using Random key modifier, and have a rating of at least 12. Songs in the courses are selected at random. For most songs which have multiple 12 ratings, I modify it so that the highest type of chart (Black or Another) is the only 12; that way I play the hardest version of the song and ensure I don't play it twice in the same course.

    Scores are given as: EX; J Great, Great, Good, Bad, Poor, Max Combo, Letter Rating

  3. Out Nerding the Nerd

    You can take it for granted that I hate most customers. Ok, all customers.
    But the ones that I hate the most, the ones that I'd love to shove my arm down their throat, grab hold of their raisinet balls and rip them out through their mouths? The goddamn game nerds.
    They're all the same, and they're all the worst. They always come in in pairs. They're like the goddamn Sith of video game retail. There is Super Nerd who makes sure to point out all the "interesting" facts ...

  4. Dante's Inferno? I can talk about that.

    by , 03 Sep 2011 at 03:20 AM (PepsimanVsJoe talks about random games.)
    When I sit down and think of all the videogames I have played through I also think about the sum total of sense they have made, which if my math is correct, totals out to somewhere over negative 17 billion and a tenth. Dante's Inferno is just another notch in the bedpost, another penny in the pot, another thing in a larger thing that is the absolute ridiculousness of videogames.

    First off there is the intro. During the Crusades Dante gets killed. Apparently if you're not ready to ...

  5. Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition (XBLA)

    Now this... This takes me back.

    High school days at the local arcade; a smoky and rough hive of villainy and scum, but the only place you could play Street Fighter 3 until the Dreamcast version years later. I don't know if those were specifically "the" days, but they were days to be sure: Days full of wonder, adventure, and really horrible people that had to basically sit on your lap to play against you. If you beat someone with sweeps alone they could punch you right ...

  6. Figured I'd say a few words about Mindjack

    by , 22 Aug 2011 at 02:38 PM (PepsimanVsJoe talks about random games.)
    In the far future man has developed a means of mind-control. Instead of merely being able to force someone to bring them a drink of water, this technology has gotten to the point where the most everyday of citizens will pull a gun out of their rear-end and engage in battle if somebody gets the bright idea to invade their skull. Also we can expect to see cyborg-primates, giant robots, and a multitude of other oddities.

    Mindjack is a third-person quasi-competitive shooter. What's the ...

  7. Two days at Comic Con

    This past week I had the chance to spend Thursday and Friday at Comic Con in San Diego. It was only the third year I have attended but it keeps getting crazier. More and more people, more and more lines, and most importantly... more and more shit to buy.

    I didn't want to bog down the thread with pictures but I did want to share a small sample of pics I took so I decided to make a blog entry. If you have the chance to attend, I would recommend it. Whatever you are into, it is represented ...

  8. Comic Jumper

    I found an old muffin in my backpack once: A forgotten breakfast gone undiscovered for how long? I couldn't remember. It certainly looked appetizing enough through its Saran Wrappings; a cornucopia of sweet glaze and blueberries. I think nuts may have been involved. Point is, shit was looking good and I was hungry. I slowly unfurled the flimsy plastic and brought it to my nose for a cautious sniff, its sweet scent eagerly filling my nostrils. That was all I required, we were good to go. ...

  9. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 6: Done.

    The warrior struggled hard, but through his hardship he finally reached the top of the mountain. He had obtained the victory that he fought so hard to earn, yet all he could do was sit and shed a tear for the journey was now over.
    I don't know where that quote comes from. I heard it from my cousin years ago and it's something that has always stuck with me. Sometimes the excitement in life is the anticipation of an event, not the event itself.

    Not so with Sonic the ...

  10. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 5: Shadow the Hedgehog Part 2 & Final Episode Part 1

    The urge to simply type, "Fuck, fuck, fuck~!" is extremely high, but I'll do this proper.

    Following the epic of entries 1, 2, 3, and 4, we are now on part 5 of this mess.

    Fuck, fuck, fuck~!

    Paint the world with tweets.

    Another day, another play session of Sonic 2006. Let's see about finishing off Shadow's episode today.
    It's good to see the Silver fight is even less balanced with Shadow. Well done, @Sega.

  11. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 4: Shadow the Hedgehog Part 1

    The continuing tragedy continues, since part 1, 2, and 3 just weren't enough.

    I was hoping to finish Shadow's episode within a day and just compile a single entry, just like I had with Silver. Unfortunately for Shadow, he's not Silver. No, our spunky black hedgehog is still hanging onto his "be like Sonic, but with bruting instead of attitude!" dynamic like it's 2001 and, well, I think I may be getting ahead of myself...

    Since Twitter seemed to have lost ...

  12. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 3: Silver the Hedgehog

    Since I already blogged about this, not just once, but twice, I figure I might as well keep blogging until I wrap this game up and call it done.

    I'll get my tweets out of the way first,

    Day 3 of playing Sonic 2006. Started Silver's episode. Silver is actually a lot of fun to play as. So is Blaze.
    "That took too long!" complains Silver at the end of an annoying boss fight. "Couldn't agree more." I reply in my head.

  13. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006 Part 2

    I wrote about my starting adventures in Sonic 2006 yesterday. At the end of last night, I put the disc back into the case and assumed the next person to feel it's wrath would be Mzo.
    Today, my curiosity got the better of me. "How much worse can this actually get?" I kept thinking. "I'm already 30% in! How long could it take to wrap this up!?" also crept into my head.

    Once again, I'll let my tweets do most of the talking...

    Oh, Blaze, how

  14. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006

    I picked up the 2006 Sonic the Hedgehog on clearance for the Xbox 360 yesterday. This is the same Sonic game that was pretty much slammed by everyone as being one of the worse games ever made and for having realistic-princess on cartoon-hedgehog action.

    Having just played Sonic Adventure on XBLA and still really digging it (faults and all), I couldn't imagine that this game was as horrible as I had heard before. A bit strange? Maybe. Funky art style? Sure. But godawful as people have ...

  15. Blogwash

    Ah, Sonic The Hedgehog. Not many franchises can claim as many highs and lows. I wish I could be excited for its 20th anniversary next year but if something that was supposed to be for the old fans (Sonic 4) can be completely busted in physics and control, I have to wonder what new lows the Sega-Sammy franchise wrecking machine is striving for. I actually do think next month's Sonic Colors looks quite nice in videos but it's most definitely still guilty until proven innocent.

    Anyway, ...
