Moths and More

Moths.  There seem to be a lot of them around here lately… and by “here” i mean… wherever.  There were 5 of them in the bathroom at work… at least, 5 I could see.

So I discovered this game called Audiosurf.  It’s really fun.  It’s a music-driven game that would go in the same category as Dance Dance  Revolution.  The biggest difference is that this one is adaptive and you can use any audio track you have on your computer.  The game analyzes the music and builds your level accordingly.  Very cool.  I’ve uploaded videos of my Audiosurf gameplay to YouTube.

I didn’t post a video log yesterday because I took the day off so that I could rest my voice.  If I could go a while without talking then it would allow my throat to heal.  I’m still coughing a little bit, but not nearly as much, and I think it helped to stay home.  Additionally, I’m starting to think I don’t need to do a video log.  It just seems silly for some reason.  At least… seems silly to make it so “official”, like “this is my official video log entry”.  I think from here on out I’ll just upload what I want to upload and not worry about categorizing it like that.

Tonight is the Entrance at church.  I’m excited.  I don’t know what the theme is yet… but whatever.

Okay I am done.  More to say but… oh well.

Bedtime

We actually didn’t do that web page training thing today at work.  I guess it’s going to be next week instead.

I think I made it until about 7pm this evening when I saw “your” used improperly again.  I’m telling you, I see it every day.  It’s not a typo, either.  These people really don’t know how to use “you’re”.  I also saw it a few times after that, as well.  It’s so annoying.

By the way, if you ever see me use a word incorrectly or spell something incorrectly, please tell me.  I, unlike the other ignorant idiots in the world, would actually like to know the proper way.  Unless it’s just a typo… I do make typos all the time… especially when I’m at work and I can only get to my blog and facebook through a remote window which has a slow response time and makes it difficult to type and even more difficult to correct mistakes.

Well, as the subject here implies, it is bedtime.  Lisa and I played Soul Calibur IV for a little while.  That game really is a lot of fun.  Shura FTW!

I guess I don’t really have anything else to say…. OH oh… I’ve been coughing a lot lately.  It’s strange how I was super sick for over a week, heavily congested, and barely coughing.  Now that I am feeling better, and hardly congested at all, I can barely stop coughing.  It really doesn’t make much sense to me.

I watched a few more of those FAIL toy reviews.  Some of them are really pretty funny.  I can’t believe some of the toys that were put on the market.  Some of them are so blatantly inappropriate, it’s surprising the companies don’t get sued… that I know of, anyway.

Well, time to pee and go to bed… in that order.


TimeSplitters

I was about to mention that I got home very late last night, but technically it was this morning, as I believe it was shortly after 1am.  What was I doing?  Well, I was playing TimeSplitters: Future Perfect.  Matt picked up the game last week when we went to Game Stop, which seems to be someplace we go more often than I think we probably should.

I am also blown away by the sheer flexibility of the game.  It has more options and more styles of gameplay than any other game I’ve ever played.  The more I play it, the more I discover how much more it has to offer.  There are so many different kinds of modes, from single-player challenges or story mode (of course) to multiplayer co-op or arcade, all which have a plethora of settings.  There is even a level designer.

Along with all of the different ways to play, there’s a multitude of characters to choose from (when playing multiplayer, which by the way is up to 4 players).  LOTS of characters, and I noticed last night that we still don’t even have half of them unlocked!  The characters are weird and hilarious, too.

Anyway, this wasn’t meant to be a full review on a game.  I was just gonna mentioned that I was up late playing it because it was so fun.  It’s the reason I’m so tired today.
