I hate this game

Finally I made it

For the last 18 or whatever stupid amount of years I've been trying my best to go back to a restaurant that I absolutely adored.  They closed the place I used to go at and then later I found out they were in a different location.  But over the years numerous friends have for whatever reason refused to go there.  Every time I'd ask I'd get some random stupid excuse that never made much sense.  And I'm talking countless friends, not just 1 or 2.  Its like the universe didnt want me going there.  Well I'm happy to say I finally made it!!  And you know what?  It was bloody good!  And I'm going to go again at the next chance.

The place is called The Magic Wok.  You go in, fill your dish with a large assortment of vegetables and meats, and then they cook it in front of you with whatever sauce you choose from the dozen or so varieties.  And then you fucking eat it!!  And boy did I eat.  I forgot to take a picture of the actual dish after it was cooked because I was too excited.  Admittedly I had 2 dishes so that shows how excited I was to not take a photo.  However I did take one of the meat section..

Theres everything from your usual beef and lamb all the way to crocodile and emu and kangeroo etc.  Lots of meat.  And all of it oh so tasty and soft and omgiwejhauyghbnwemtf  I need to go again so badly!!

Well we got around to trying to stream stuff as a test to see if its worth us playing games and streaming them.  Unfortunately both mine and Jeds internet is too shit to stream for whatever reason.  It ends up looking like a horrible slow slideshow.  So yeah, won't be happening.  Real shame as we thought we'd log into it whenever we played an online game without the other, like CS, BF, street fighter/KOF, any MMO,  just something we didnt feel like editing for youtube.  Oh well.  Supposedly mid next year my areas internet will be getting a boost of speed so maybe then.  We'll check again in a year or so.  Wonder if we'll be bothered uploading videos still lol

Apocalypse 9 + Sims 2 pack free

Oh sure, most of us are trying to get through Sims 3 and its expansion packs, and 4 is just around the corner.  But free is free.  Just load up Origin and go to Redeem product code and type in


You will get it and all its expansion packs.  Peggles free too.  But yeah, there you go.  Wont be for long so if you really want them grab them now.  I'm also in mid battle with my old iphone 4.  Trying to wipe it and keep its jailbreak so I can get rid of it to help pay off my horribly abused credit card.  Not going well.  Right now I'm trying to just get it to work.  We'l see how it goes.  Stupid thing might end up in a wall at this rate.

One year on

So its a year since my cat died.  A very lonely one at that.  Still miss him like crazy, bouts of small periods of depression still hit me.  I hate that hes not around.  The large chair in my room that he used to sleep on is still next to me.  It takes up a large amount of space but I cant bring myself to move it to another room.  Today I saw the little winged cat statue that I placed over the area I buried him, it had been tilted a little and shifted from its spot.  Had to hold back from raging.  I put it perfectly back in its position and had a stern word with my mum over it.  She claims not to have done it but thats the area shes dragging the garden hose and sometimes it slides up over the protective barrier of bricks.  It's a small thing but when it comes to that little area of his I just see red if something isnt how it should be.

One thing I'm still absolutely pissed at is not having a statue of him.  A while back I commissioned someone who was excellent at doing animal sculptures to do one of Kyo.  She go the likeness of many of them perfect.  But when it came time to show me what she'd done I was just deflated.  Heres  picture of what she sent me a while back.

While its a great piece of work, I wasnt completely happy with it.  I may be over critical but this is one thing I needed to be perfect.  As a small picture it looks pretty good.  But at its normal size you start to see all the little things.  And once I see something I see it every time I look at it.   I'd never be completely happy and it would bother me forever.  I dont want that nagging sensation in the back of my mind whenever I look a statue of him.  I want to look at it and see him instantly.  The ears are wrong, the nose is wrong, the mouth is wrong, the cheek areas make his face look bulbous.  Its just not him.  The lady understood why I couldnt accept it and she was more than happy to keep it which was cool, because as a cat sculpture its pretty awesome.

So now my new idea is to create him as a 3D model and then get it printed out.  I dont really know much about 3D modelling.  I've seen a course offered nearby that could help me get started.  I'll probably give it a skeleton so that I can make any kind of pose for extra statues.  One thing at a time I guess.  If I was working I'd just pay someone an obscene amount to do it for me.  Not being able to find a job is starting to get to me.

So heres to the most amazing cat I've ever known.  I absolutely loved him and miss him like crazy and still think about him every day.  Nothings going to fill this void.

Video card wtf!!!!

So I finally pinned down where that damn noise in my computer was coming from.   Before I couldnt tell if it was the video card or power supply.  It's been doing it since last year.  But it would usually stop doing it after a little.  Now its constant and way louder which is why I could specifically pinpoint the video card.  Lord knows how long its going to last too.  And right now I really cant afford a new card and I dont want to waste money on a temporary SHIT one that I'll replace soon after.  Thats just throwing money away.

I was hoping  I could reach the end of the year.   My plan was to upgrade when either Elite Dangerous or Star Citizen was released.  SC has been delayed till mid next year or something but Elite is in beta right now so good chance it should be out before the end of the year.   But...aarrrgh.  ARGH!  Only choices I have use my netbook for the internet till I save up for a new card, which will take months since I'm busy paying off my credit card at the moment thanks to being out of work for a STUPID length of time.  Why the fuck arent I getting more responses to my job applications!  Fucking shit world!!

Other option but a decent card that will do the job well enough and just pretend my credit card isnt being raped.  The third option is buy a card I originally planned for later which will not only rape my card, but probably manifest into a live creature to rape me straight after.  Oh well.   One day at a time.  Lets see how long this stupid thing will last.  Not gonna lie.  I'm pretty paranoid about firing up a game and having it whirr super speed.  Might cause it to flip its shit and give out there and then.  Guess its adventure time from here on out.

Apocalypse part 7

So I've decided to start uploading more often.  Will definitely help me clear up my computer thats for sure.   It also means I need to kick jed into being online more to play.  Actually I kicked him the other day to start uploading clips he's had of games he's playing.  You know what happens when you multiple lazy + lazy?  You get jed.  We abuse each other fairly often though. I'll get the last laugh, mark my words!

Right now theres a bunch of awesome stuff I really want to buy, but cant afford them thanks to NO JOB!  How it makes me rage.  Sent off 10 job applications last week, heard nothing so far.  Maybe I should just start selling drugs.

GRID Autosport extras for PC

I just came across this info and felt to slapping it up.  Huge huge huge fan of the first game.  Second game I do not like at all.  Started out liking but after a while realized they were just trying to do something more like Forza when they really should have stuck to what they did the first time.  So I outright ignored this game and everything about it since I expected the same thing.  I tried it out at a friends place since he put it on and found out its pretty much exactly the same as the first one.  The whole structure of it is the same, the team mate that you can command during races is the same, its just glorious again.  I was hoping it would be on sale for a little less then a full priced game since its not exactly Grid 3, but sadly its full priced.  So I'm going to wait a while till its discounted as right now I really cant afford to get it.  But anyway, heres the cool extras the PC version just recently was added in via a large patch.

Codemasters tell me that the development of Grid Autosport is PC-lead. “Everything's just a bit bigger and higher res detail on PC,” says Kettlewell. “Better shadows, higher res car reflections – that's something else we've put a lot of work into on Autosport, getting the car paint effect to look as authentic as we possibly can.”
“We're locked to 30fps on console, we're clear on PC,” Moody adds. “60fps is really nice, it gives you a great experience. And, it can be played on a three displays. It has full peripheral support – wheels, controllers...”.
“We've got it running on 4K in the next room,” says Adrian Lawton, Codemasters communications manager.
“The thing about being PC-lead is that in the past we'd think 'Oh we can't do that on console' so we wouldn't do it,” says Kettlewell. “Whereas now the reaction now is 'Oh we can't do it on console but let's do it on PC.'
“We have little dashboard reflections. In head cam you can see reflections on the windscreen, something we'd never be able to afford to do on consoles without breaking our fps performance limit. In the past we wouldn't have done features like that but now we're thinking we can do it on PC. Better lighting and things like that. Little bits in lots of places.”

Delicious!  The free HD texture pack with the extra oomf is a separate download in steam.  You can enable or disable it at will through the options.  It's a shame they didnt focus on the cockpit view too.  That area is blurry and blah as hell.  Not sure why they bothered making it.

Blood Woods Apocalypse 6

Today decided to crawl out of bed around 6pm.  Must admit I enjoyed the ultra sleep time since I've been getting stuff all the past week.  Catching up ons ome tv stuff I have.  One such show called My Haunted House.  Its like 6 episodes with 2 stories each about someone recounting a ghost story they experienced and re-enacted.  Very similar to Paranormal Witness and My Ghost Story.  Some of the stories are good.  But some others are pretty trash.  Whether they're all true or not isnt something I can state.  But the good ones for me are the ones that seem more realistic.  The bad ones annoy me and generally have a cliche story or predictable unrealistic path.  It's good enough as it hasnt made me rage quite like some other shows.

Also heres the next clip..

Finally done

So I've finished Bravely Default today on the 3DS.  Been meaning to play it for ages since every one kept saying its the best Square rpg in years etcetc blahblah.  Found it recently at a stupidly low price and went for it.  I'll have to agree its their best one since they've released nothing but rubbish over the past decade.  Their best period was in the 90s during the psx.  Some unbelievably amazing games from them.  PS2 had a couple maybe, though I cant recall.  PS3 period?  pfffft.  Rubbish company.  So you're probably wondering, did I enjoy Bravely Default.  Without giving away any spoilers or hints or whatever, I would have to say no.  The game is decent.  Borderline decent.  The music is awesome, graphics are wonderful, and the battle system is great.  However most of the characters are fairly blah, story is blah, and...BLAH!!  Others will probably enjoy it.  I'm just fairly critical about many things.  Especially when a game like BD is only HALF a game.  The end had a little bonus movie showing a sequel.  I'll probably give it a shot if the story layout chapters are completely different to what I was served in this sad excuse for an rpg.

I've decided to play something a little shorter now and picked up my copy of Last Window, a DS game thats been sitting on my shelf for the past year.  I loved the first title, Hotel Dusk, so I'm sure this will be just fine.  Not sure what I'll fire up after that.  Too many games.  Far too many games built up over time.  Especially in those humble bundle packs from various sites.

And still waiting on my bloody camera to come back from the repair place.  Hurry uuuuuuuuuup.

Oh ho ho ho Aliens Isolation dlc

The game itself I'm not too excited about.  I don't believe that it can stay exciting for the whole game.  I mean once the thrill of the slow moving alien plodding along after you wears off, it'll probably become more irritating than scary.  Well at least for me.  I'm sure plenty will get scared.  Just like how they found outlast scary.  Fucking joke of a game..   Anyway.  The dlc will be back during the first Alien film.  Original characters and voice actors, and you get to play it.  This is just awesome for me as that film was a huge part of my childhood and pretty much only 1 of 2 films that could scare me under the age of 10.  The other being the dark Crystal.  Because of fucking SKEKSIS.

Now I dont know how good it'll be.  You'll be able to play either of the characters and the outcome will change depending on what you do.  Which basically means you get to decide on who lives I guess.  Thats fine.  I wasnt sure if I would buy Isolation, but this dlc has the fan in me more then curious.  So I'll probably get it at some stage.  Possibly during a sale. I dont think I can justify a first day purchase though.

Nononono gamestop

I saw this earlier and to be completely honest I wasnt too surprised they're looking into this sort of thing..

"[GamesStop] indicated that software publishers are more enthusiastic about partnering with it," Baird's Colin Sebastian wrote. "For example, by offering exclusive content on each major game release, and longer term, future models may include GameStop offering exclusive gameplay."
GamesBeat asked him to clarify what exactly that "future model" meant, and Sebastian added the retailer is thinking about "getting involved at the time of game development where there could be some content exclusive to [the retailer] included in the game."
So if you thought it was stupid that peripheral content like skins and maps was split up between retailers, just wait until GameStop can offer actual parts of a game you can't get anywhere else. Then wait for Walmart and Best Buy and Amazon to catch on. It'll be great.

Theres something seriously wrong with the world.

Fuck you harmony gold

So I've noticed these bastards have put up a kickstarter trying to get 500k from people to create a new 22min episode in the robotech series called Robotech Academy.  Supposedly based around the kids of the characters from the original series.   Firstly, 500k for 22min?  They could pay some cheap korean studio 10k or so like the japanese do and get that.  The rest is mostly profit for the shitty owners.   Secondly, FUCK YOU!  These retards are the reason why we havent had any new Macross stuff ported to the west.  We've had to import stuff.  Do you know how many games have been released in japan that we havent gotten?  An awesome 30th anniversary game for the ps3 with old characters, new characters, new story, new animation, CG, and cool battle gameplay.  Look at this...

I was forced to buy the japanese version and at one stage will go through it with a faq to try and understand it.  I've played a couple Macross games in the past that were just japanese.  One fairly good one on the dreamcast that I found at the time by total fluke, and also the psx ones.  I think I enjoyed those, but really cant remember.  But yeah, fucking furious!!

I wish everyone would just turn their backs on this company so they could die and just disappear.  Sadly theres a few who will still back them, and no amount of finger pointing can get them to understand.  At least this guy gets it.  Fucking absolute joke.  If this kickstarter gets funded I'll have to destroy something.

Bunch of HP Lovecraft audio story links

I came across this page while I was grabbing a few to listen to.  I absolutely love the audio drama's where they use music and sound effects and everything.  I've found more audio drama's to have a creepier atmosphere than most movies.  Obviously I have no clue which ones are the good ones.  But if you pick a story you were always interested in, just click and see how it sounds.  If you like the voice then you're good as gold.  It's horribly embarressing for me as a Lovecraft fan to admit I still havent read all his stories.  Every now and then I'll try to grab one or I'll search the net for any good movies based off his stories.  I've found a few amazing ones thats for sure.  Heres the link for the audio books..

Brilliant page with quite a bit of work put into it.  Aside from that link I'm going to paste a few more up that are of sites I have come across or follow that update on Lovecraft stuff.

As for movies there are far too many for me to list with my shoddy memory.  A few that spring to mind though,  Re-Animator, From Beyond, The Call of Cthulhu (which is done as a 1920s silent film), Dagon, ..argh theres that memory I was talking about...  Well there are also others that arent Lovecraft but certainly inspired by him like Carpenters excellent In the Mouth of Madness.  Sam Neill was awesome in it.

Not going as planned

So today I took in my camera and unfortunately I had the warranty procedure completely wrong in my head.  What I originally thought was they would replace my camera on the spot any time it had an issue for the 3 years I'd paid for.  In actuality I was half right.  They would replace it once and that would cancel out my 3 year warranty, or I could have it sent off for repairs and keep the 3 year warranty.  So I went with send off.  One cool thing I didnt realize though was if I wanted I could use my warranty to also upgrade the camera.  I'd pick another one I wanted and pay the difference of what my camera was to it.  I wanted to do that but the camera I really wanted, which I couldnt afford at the time when I'd bought this camera, they dont stock at all.  So thats pretty bloody pointless.  

One other bit of bad news is my friend who was going to do the Meet Jed clip has been finally called in to do his 2 year compulsory military service.  So obviously he's not going to have the time to do this.  I'd going to experiment with trying to do little things myself and see if I can wrap my head around filmmaker and other stuff.  I dont expect to produce a thing and instead run off crying at how hard it is.  But I'm going to give it a shot.  A the very least I could probably make Bill stand there and fart.  That would be impressive.  OH WELL.

Fireworks night

Thats what today was.  Fireworks night.  Once a year everyone and their stupid dog buy a shitload of fireworks and just set them off non stop for about 5-6 hours once the sun goes down.  It's only meant to go for 1 day.  But lots of people forget this rule and still set some off over the next couple weeks.  It's beyond frustrating.  I used to get super pissed over it since the super loud explosions would terrorize my cat.  But he's not around any more.  So that was one less thing to stress over.  So now I'm just baaaah whatever.  Hope some of you blow your hands off by accident.  Stupid loud bastards.

You know they complain that he cost of living is expensive now days.  complain about this or that going up in price, how can I pay for this bill, I cant afford that holiday etcetc.  Oh wait fuck it I'm going to spend a couple grand on fireworks and blow them all in one night yeah!!!!!!!  I can understand if they have kids cause you have little option  Kids want their fireworks.  At the very least it should be set to specific zones that fireworks are allowed to be let off.  Like at the beach or whatever.  Basically anything that keeps their loud shit from popopoping around my house for stupid hours on end.  By the end of the night it doesnt matter where you go or where you drive to, the air is thick with fireworks smoke.  Bleah!

Also my camera has developed a fault.  Tomorrow I'm going in to the store and abusing their policy of getting it swapped for another brand new one on the spot.  My 3 year warranty lets me do this.  So I'm doing it.

Also heres a sundae I had the other day.  Guy beside me freaked out when he saw me carrying it to my table.
