Scatter Storming. Issue #026

Finally I’m back! After Riddles took over with that horrible 25th issue, we had those technical issues, and there was just never a good time to post a late issue, so it’s been forever! But I’m glad to be back with my good ol’ weekly round of verbal diarrhea. Let’s get to it!

I’m both hating FFXIII so much more and liking it more -
Seriously, the more I think about the tunnel I had to get through to get to Pulse, the more I can’t believe that I played through it. I mean, I really am a big fan of the battle system, but even the Crystarium system didn’t mean anything until Pulse. I’ve played about 12 hours in the post-game now, and it’s easily the most fun I’ve had with the game. Still, it’s nothing truly spectacular because it’s really just marks and really pretty scenery with cool Terra-esque flowers. Back to the shitty story though, I think it just got worse as it progressed. There were no supplementary characters worth note, and the main cast stunk, and things made less and less sense as you got along. Oh well, I’m so anxious to complete all the marks, I’ll probably end up Platinum-ing the game.

Broke Update -
Still broke. Stupid Revenue Canada. They said 4 weeks! 6 MAX! And I sent stuff in early, so it’s supposed to be fast. It’s been about 8 weeks now, and I’m still scraping by. No fun. I want to buy games. I want to buy a PSP. I want to buy Monty Python stuff off of Amazon. Also, the Lord of the Rings (gimped) trilogy is on Blu-Ray. I want to buy that too, even though I know I’m a sucker for it. GAH! I like money and I want more of it again. Still, playing the piano is nice.

I have an XBox? -
I kinda forgot until I thought I was going to play Splinter Cell. As a guy who was chuckling at the PS3 just over a year ago, it’s interesting to see that it’s quickly become my system of choice. Now it’s going to get back at me by crashing when I try to play Gears 3 or Mass Effect 3 or potentially Alan Wake.

Fuck yeah! Only one of my three teams made it, and they’re going to be wiped out first round, but who gives a fuck?! HD HOCKEY PLAYOFFS! I always wanna follow it, and never had a TV, or stuff came up, but CBC is covering 4 of the 8 match-ups for round one, and I’m going to soak that up. But first: Modern Family.

Piano music? -
Long-time loyal reader SiliconNooB once suggested on Facebook that Lusipurr and I should somehow record some of our video game piano stylings for the listening pleasure of our fans. I don’t know about Lusipurr, but I could definitely do something from my end if there were any interest. Lemme know!

Broke Update -

That’s it. I gotta make the cover now (I think it’s going to be of Snapped Celery, my latest character), and then Modern Family and then the playoffs. Ice cream will be involved too.

    Here’s a proposal: you, my place, hot, sweaty action between 9am-1pm tomorrow. Depending on how things go, we might take it into the elevator. Maybe even behind the dumpsters.

    I’ve extended the same offer to Pogo, but he’s taking a long time to mull it over. His deal involves KFC, Pepsi, and hookers. But I think you’d appreciate cold, hard cash better?

    BTW, in case I didn’t manage to completely creep you out, I’m talking about moving a sofa.

    -being broke fuckin sucks.

    -the piano music idea is a really good one, I’d like to hear that.

    -being broke really fucks.

    Three teams…Wild, Avs, Leafies? This is the most wide-open playoffs I’ve ever seen – no series is a lock.

  4. Ethos says:

    Wild, Leafs, Habs!!
    Although I’d say if any series is a lock, it IS the Habs series…for Washington.
    Also, I AM mildly leaning toward Avs in that series.

  5. Jordypie says:

    Word. I’d agree – that Habs/Caps series has the most potential for being a blowout. Avs should, in theory, get crushed, but the Sharks are notorious playoff chokers. You COULD give some love to the only Canadian hopeful out there too, oui?! Tonight at 10? I’ll be at your place at 6:30 for pregame.

  6. Ethos says:

    Plus, the Avs were looking good last night, and the Sharks weren’t off their game! (minus the 2nd period).
    And MAN, don’t get me excited like that, I’ll actually believe it! You’re in Malta! But Matti’s coming over, so maybe I’ll put a Jordan mask on him.

  7. 7thCircle says:

    Capitols boy here. I don’t know what a Hab is, but it’s going down. Ovechkin eats Habs for breakfast.

  8. Ethos says:

    Except that Ovechkie looked terrible out there when the Habs won Game 1.
    But still, Washington is a great team to watch, and there’s no way Montreal’s going to win that series.
