What about that?

Hello all!

I know it’s been a while since my last post, but the last couple of weeks have been pretty heavy. As you’ve probably heard, I was very sick and found it a little difficult to carry on with my day-to-day events. Well On Saturday I finally got over that. Though, sadly, the lovely Tia-Louise has had a severe tooth ache and on the proceeding Friday, had said tooth removed. She’s now at home having chest pains, tooth ache (lack-of-tooth-ache) and ear pain. She’s had to take so many pain killers she’s become drained. I really am very worried about her and am wishing that she’d be better soon. You know what its like, don’t you? Someone you truly care about being in that much pain and you not being able to help? It’s maddening!

I’m sitting here, on the cold balcony of GraniteNet, waiting to go in and enjoy the spoils of modern society (heat, computer, coffee) and yet, there is nothing I can do, another predicament of which I didn’t foresee.

The last thing I wished to talk about was the next thing I plan to do in the gaming world. I have set my heart onto completing the Halo: REACH campaign on Legendary alone. This, if I can complete it, will earn me 175g which is a massive achievement. I’ll keep you all posted!

Chest Pains and Exploding Cranes

Hello loyal readers (all -1 of you) yes I am indeed still alive, but only just.

Today I went to the hospital. A large woman yelled at me, ripped off my chest hair, cut my finger and stole my blood. In the end I found out that I was fine. Then later on I realised that I am not fine. Every second minute it feels like I have a small rodent working its way down my throat. I love the fact that no matter how much I work at it, it still feels like I've eaten so many potato chips that they're stuck in my throat.

Second, I think it's probably a good idea to tell of my gaming adventures of the past couple of days. Because of my horrible horrible sickness, I've been working on a little game called "Just Cause 2" or as I like to call "Mexican Spiderman 2: Not Enough Tacos!". The adventure continues as Scorpio (Mexican Spiderman) jumps out of a plain for some reason, and begins falling to the ground. With that the game picks up exponentially, not even 10 minutes before writing this I blew up about 3 crains with a chaingun mounted on a helicopter. Sheer. Fucking. Awesome.

So All you kiddies who are looking for the latest-and-greatest game to ask for your Birthdays and Such, Ask your mother for "Mexican Spiderman 2: Not Enough Tacos" abvailable at your nearest EB Games.

warning, eb games does not endorse the use of grapling hooks on bodies or excessive use of mexican profanity. tacos not included

Gamer Girl

My girl is what I like to call a Girl Gamer. I don't mean one of those girls that think if they push an xbox controller against their breasts they'll be called a gamer, I mean a girl, in this case an adorable one, who can actually hold her own against armies of Covenant, Geth and Hordes of Zombies alike. How many guys can say that their girlfriend can actually game s well as they can? 

Now, if youre an "Internet Junkie Girl" you're probably thinking "*troll voice* Girl Gamers Don't exist! They're just sluts who sleep with gamers" THAT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE!!!! She is kind, loving and completely badass with an assault rifle. 

Now, her blog, though not having anything to do with gaming, is linked in my blogroll if you ever want o read it. She is Tia-Louise. 

Now, if you've been reading my posts all along you'll probably have realized that I don't just stick to one topic per post, so for my second topic I think I'll talk about the death of rhythm games. Games like Guitar Hero and DJ Hero are, as of this week, gone forever. Activision, the publisher behind such games as Call of Duty: Black Ops, were the publishers of these series and have announced that they're losing much more money than they're gaining on the GH series (Probably because Guitar Hero 5 was utter shit and Warriors of rock made me want to hang a donkey and beat the CEO to death with it's corpse).

Finally, I have one question for all you readers. What's your zombie plan?

end... An odd story

Breathing slowly and deeply I gaze towards the horizon. The figures in the amber red dance in the distance, the figures distorted by the distance, I can’t tell if they’re human or not. Linen rippling over my body as I rise and trudge forward, my rest is over. I have to keep moving, the dessert isn’t the only danger to me right now. I know that what’s following me is relentless, merciless and, for lack of a better term, evil.
The rough scratching in the sand tells me that I took my resting for longer than I should’ve and the metallic click told me to get the fuck out of there. Head down I run like hell, around me the sand reaches for the sun, bullets burying themselves into the dunes, save my flesh.
Biting the back of my neck, four bullets graze me, blood stains the white linen on my back. My own blood. I can feel the warmth mix with the sand on my skin, the world blurs and spins as I fall. Pain explodes across my spine as my body slams into the rough dunes.
The sun is blocked by my pursuer, I can’t make out his face or what he’s wearing, all I can see is the dark silhouette and the shine of the barrel. The red flash, then the white and then darkness, irrevocable and unending…
Best not to ask where I get my inspiration, there really isn’t anywhere. that was meant to be simply a story about meditation which ended with his death, interesting but no real meaning. It’s been a while since I’ve done something like that and it definitely feels good. Stay tuned for more. Please criticise, then there’ll be better stories!

The Subject of Stuff

YEAH! Try and figure that one out!

Anyway, yes, this is a post on the subject on what ever I wish. The first thing I would like to talk about is control.

Many of us rely on control to get through our day, but when we are "controlling" others, what often happens is we're never really thinking of ourselves in that position are we? for example, when a parent controls a child, often there is reason, but there sometimes is none. When there is no reason, how many parents can honestly say that they listen to their child? Just something to think about.

A reminiscent of the Bleach manga franchise lo...Image via WikipediaAnother thing I think is cool, I've recently come into posession of the first volume of the hit Anime series Bleach. Bleach is the story of Ichigo, a Soul Reaper (in training) and his descovery of this whole new world of adventure and awe. also, there is a LOT of killing in it, which, for a testosterone-fueled 17-year-old is really all that matters :P

These last few weeks at GraniteNet, I've been working quite a bit on various things and have come up with a thought. If Twitter, now having a huge input on the news industry and on television programs, why wouldn't having it open on radio work better? Twitter, instead or in addition to people texting and calling in? Since Granite Net will be hosting it's own website pretty soon and as a result, there should be a huge input from the community, a Tweetfeed wouldn't be that bad :D

Halo Combat Evolved Remake?!

I have just learned, oddly from girlgamer, that on the 10th anniversary of the release of the first Halo game, there will be a re-release. I hope these guys know what they're doing, because making this available for a 1080p television could either make or break the classic FPS. I am looking forward to seeing.

Yo Ho Sebastian!

Good Morning All!

Now, I'm sure at this point my sexuality may be at risk but I assure you I like this song for it's sheer awesomeness, not the fact that it's called "Gay Pirates". Cosmo Jarvis, the artist behind this song is probably one of the few musicians who can make a tune like this work, and for that, I am ecxtatic and plan to buy his album of the same name, I think it's the same title.

There isn't much to say of my life, dancing with Tia-Louise was amazing at the Stanthorpe Flood charity dance. That night will live on in my memories forever...

I've had more fun than I ever thought possible over the past couple of months, ballroom dancing, getting to know new people and actually living without the internet (posting this on a blog probably makes it a little odd to say that, but all I do on the net is blog). I am getting so much done!

Working currently for GraniteNet is getting very fun. I'm teaching the team how to use Twitter for advertising and will probably be holding classes at the Internet Cafe over the next few weeks. If you're reading this and would like to learn how to use twitter, just message me and I'll share details!
