    Uncharted Series

    Ah, Crushing was so good. I didn't finish my crushing playthrough though because I had to return it to gamefly since it was just a trial. Did beat it on the second hardest.

    Wow, I had no idea it was as long as a platform Uncharted! That's a sweet deal.
  3. I just dusted it off and popped it back in a few hours ago and started a new game. Already having fun lol. Plus, it has TLATD & BOGT to sweeten the deal!

    It looked fun from what I saw. After playing through all 3 I would love to catch up on that chapter as well, just dont have (nor expect to buy) a Vita :/

    ^^so you just tap the screen to make him move, or is it motion calibration controlled? or...? i saw the demo at target but didnt take a look since little kids cough their fucking diseases all over video game demo systems.
  7. Toss up between Vice City & GTA4. Vice City is just so, boss. So much good pop-culture references, allusions to mobster & mafia movies like Goodfellas and Scarface, Ray Liotta himself owning it as Tommy, a great cinematic commercial set to "I Ran" by Flock of Seagulls (which I still think of every single time I hear that song), Lovefist, and just so much Win. And, it has an *awesome* soundtrack and fucking hilarious radio spots/content (sissy spritz, anyone?) (but I am biased since I have a huge connection with 80s pop culture). The story line is tightly written, the environments and NPCs are great, and overall its just so spot on to the 80s. Niko's story in 4, however, is...whoa. THAT storyline, in my opinion, was way better than most of the other games. The voice acting for him, like Tommy, is superb, and you can actually care about and relate to the character, the fucked up situations he's in, and his moral standing. Plus, who doesn't love a shitfaced Niko screaming "TAXI!" then falling down like a goddamned rag doll while a jamaican man speaks shit you really cant fucking understand? Rockstar delivered well with GTA4, and after writing as good a script as Rockstar San Diego came up with for Red Dead Redemption, I have high hopes for GTA V blowing them all away as it takes us back to Los Santos.
  8. Wow, I just realized I havent played a GTA game on my puter since Vice City... and that was like years after I'd played it on the playstation. Oh, that Tommy, chasing bitches with a chainsaw... good times. Good homicidal times. Also: also playstation3.
  9. WHERE?!! On a *related* sidenote: building your own does have that horrible contingency of fundage... it sucks to have to wait to add hardware paycheck to paycheck, but at least youll be happy with your finished product.
  10. lmao, i wouldnt have typed it if i was still doing it. my answer woulda been "meh".
  11. Yea, *that* looks much better on "my sites".
  12. Its simple, it's clean, but importantly, its definitely YOU, Simon. That content has you written all over it, a great thing, because you're putting this together to show off yourself, and that includes your attitude as well as your developer talents. Branding yourself quite nicely. I like that its all one page, streamlined, nice. I like that your top tabs link to the subsequent area of the page, and I know that you can just scroll back up to the top, but is there anyway to incorporate some sort of a "back" functionality? I have no clue if there is I'm just putting that out there, I've never been good at building sites. Anyway to justify alignment of the "my sites" content table so the dates dont look so bunched up? (Being picky.) Last quick thing, orange text for "simon elliot // web developer" on woodgrain bg seems a little blurry because of the color similarity but might just be me or my display? *EDIT: I see you have mentioned the logo before, sorry for rehashing it.

    The Titanic

    Mine too in San Diego, CA. Sounded really cool but didn't have the fundage to go. On the actual date of the 100th anniversary, San Diego had a few things going on that sounded interesting: The US Grant Hotel held a Titanic tea, complete with a violinist. UltraStar Cinemas played film of the ship wreckage from a private collection in its Mission Valley lobby. The Prado restaurant in Balboa Park hosted a 10-course meal that replicated the first-class menu served on board the night Titanic went down, for only $212 per person. (It sold out!) And the San Diego Natural History Museum has that linked exhibit of 200 Titanic artifacts, and had drawn almost 70,000 visitors between Feb and April (it's still open). On the evening of the anniversary, they stayed open late until 2:20 a.m., the exact minute of the sinking.
  14. Playing beta for Lineage II. I needed a screen name and decided "Apocalypse" sounded cool. It was taken. I scrabbled that shit and came up with Selpyacoap. And then in-game ppl didnt want to type the whole thing so they called me "selpy". I liked it, it stuck, and I still use it 10 years later.
  15. did for awhile.. everyday..then i woke up one morning on my friends floor with a bunch of buddies, my wallet tapped, my belt undone, an NES controller in one hand with Super Mario Bros on, a dried up burrito in the other, a bloody gash on my forehead, my walkman stolen and no real recollection of the night before, and I realized "Hey...I've woken up here 5 out of 7 days a week for 4 months...maybe I should knock this shit off and get serious." And I did, for the most part. Haven't really done it much since, and had a nasty trip once afterward, though not as bad as my friend who had some pcp-laced shit at a party without knowing it and I had to nurse his ass for the next 6-7 hours...he still smokes though, lmao. Now, as far as legal shit... I see it like this: but down the blunt, pick up a ballot. If you really give so much of a fuck, sober up long enough to make your voice heard, don't just sit there on the couch with the joint in your lips saying how "fucking sweet" it would be if they legalized it. PRECISELY. Privacy of YOUR own home, Massacre. Your property. If you are controlling yourself, your intake and the subsequent impact you would have on your surroundings by being responsible, WHO GIVES A FUCK? However--- if you are getting high as fuck and doing it in public, that's a different story imho. We cannot make the arguement that drinking, smoking (tobacco), conducting violent or vulgar actions and being sexually blatant in front of impressionable youth do not have side affects nor occasionally help shape the opinions those youths form on the social & moral acceptance of those actions. I'm not playing Jr Republican here and putting the stupid-as-fuck "it's a slippery slope"** card they used with gay-marriage out there, but, yeah, personally, I did learn about weed and drinking and smoking and fucking from my surrounding older peers, and none of them taught me to go out and make a positive difference in the world, I learned that shit for myself. We gotta be careful, that's all. Regulate, and use discretion about what we do to our own bodies and where we do those things. If you want to smoke 4 bowls and get fucked by a tranny in your own living room while a pirated copy of The Lorax is playing on your illegal acquired hdtv, that's your business, not mine. If you're going to break laws put in place to help protect us, again, your decision, not mine. But be ready to deal with the repercussions. BFD #2: Los Carteles. They do NOT want US approved & regulated dist of MexiCannabis. As far as they are concerned, right now, it's a free market, and they will (and have for decades) shed the blood of their own and of anyone who stands in the way of their profit. "The War on Drugs" hasn't done a goddamned fucking thing to stop these baddies. In fact, all that's happened in the subsequent years of "warring" has been the deaths of 100s if not 1000s claiming citizenship in Mexico, US citizens, and other countries. For the most part, they respect the border insofar as phsyical militia presence, not crossing into the US to start gunfights unless they need to. But they have that unwritten rule of "Keep the Fuck Out" toward any policing agencies (US & Mexican alike) that try to get in the way. Their reach is deep, their character ruthless, and their actions freakishly self-justified. But, then again, it's funny how a gov can claim world security as the reason to get involved in an oil-rich nation for possible WMDs (where were they, btw???), but not try to occupy a nation which has ruthlessly and violently taken a huge chunk of control of another product.. Hmm. #Priorities. Backlash indeed, both from pissed off people who have lost control of their cash crop, from people against the use of it, and from the actual legal presence of it. And yes, it is addictive. Great point bOnEs. Psychological & habitual addiction is also addiction; it's not just a chemical thing. **(NO THE FUCK IT ISN'T, BTW. TWO SANE & RATIONAL ADULTS SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE THE SAME BENEFITS AS THEIR NON-ALTERNATIVE COUNTERPARTS, AND THAT WONT LEAD TO SHEEP-FUCKING OR SEX WITH CHILDREN... Thats just idiotic.)
