Backyard kitten is off to his own home! Everyone back to work!

Damn you Maneater!!

Oct 17, 2009

Forget spiders!

Now we have mysterious backyard kitten to look after.

Kindly old man

I don't know whats going on here.

Nest noodles

Ha! I found him, now larger than ever after he finished molting in his little nest(the one on the bottom left is a new guy from downstairs) I've been keeping tabs on these spiders all summer. Earlier in the year there was a much larger one in the bathroom that was killed. She turned out to be the mother. Not much longer after that there were tons of tiny ones running around on the ceiling. Lots of them died. As far as I can tell about 5 of them made it to adulthood, keeping watch over various rooms from the ceilings. Now if only they'd kill house centipedes we'd be best friends, but they dominate the floors so they never meet. They also eat spiders. Good thing they're out of season!

Internet slowness makes it impossible to update.

More space than I need.

A lot more somewhere

oh there

Blue, Khaki and Green.

Genesis Jurassic Park was annoying and great. Get to play as a raptor? YES! Eat poor compsognathus? Damn right! No face Autum(Grant) with her useless taser gun, smoke nades and darts some how makes it through some pretty crazy stuff. The best part? Screen shaking and thumping sounds followed by a HUGE T-Rex head busting through the wall, eating grant and leaving nothing but a floating hat. And then you beat the game by dropping a skeleton on 2 raptors.

Wait a sec. On closer inspection...

When did they get hats?

Oct 6, 2009

Flee Cowards!

I don't know what this is.

Oct 5, 2009

Is that a cat?

My friend! This little dude is on the ceiling above the bed. I enjoy keeping tabs on my house spiders. He used to be much smaller. I think he went in there to molt and now he appears larger. Maybe that's why he has the safety nest over him. I guess I could just read about it on Wikipedia or something.

It was a fine day.

This is a story all about how hanging of edges brings victory!
So here's me, cool gas mask wearing pistol russian accent guy.

I had it pretty good up on this balcony safely overlooking the battlefield. Until this nut job with an RPG comes up. He wants to shoot me real bad. But there's not enough space unless he wants to kill himself too! I'm all pro hanging like a monkey(I'm sure if he shot the wall behind me he would have been successful, but he is ANGRY!)

He doesn't like the hanging! Uh oh he got too close!

Down you go!

Down down into a pit of darkness and failure.
I'm sure he'd be upset to know that I took his RPG and when his buddy tried to take my balcony...

... POW! I used it on him.

Screenshots taken in the Uncharted 2 multiplayer beta, which is really fun due to the climbing, cover system and fun melee attacks. You can also watch replays of any of your games and then take neato screenshots which allow you to tweak things like; camera tilt, depth of field, fog, lighting, color and more! Look what fun little stories they make too!

Oct 3, 2009

I solved it!

Back from New York and that's seriously the types of hints you pay for in the Professor Layton games. I have yet to see them cause DS snapping rage yet though. I'm glad I went back to the MET, I had forgotten how amazing the statues are there. I've got some pictures around here somewhere ... hmm.

Old School Scribbles

All over my school notes! I wish I had them here so I could scan them. They are elsewhere. The main one there, Happy Skull or Felix Kaput, originated from me not understanding that the little dude in halloween land from Super Mario World 2, was a hockey mask. Not a skull with a knife in it. Then me being me had a story(on my french notes) where the knife was removed and he became happy skull. Then inspired by a combination of a goomba from Mario and carbuncle from Puyo Puyo, I made Goosh, Happy's side kick( and some story about him being an evil goomba, getting stepped on and becoming a microbrained giddy sponge thing) Then there's tank man(inspired by an old dos Tank game which later became scorched earth) and old school Immp. I think there was a foul mouthed snow man too.
Pretty lame stuff but it was either this or Super Mario Land 2 Fire Autum, and that's just embarrassing.

Sep 21, 2009

This is my land!

Super Mario Land. Why is the first dungeon Egypt? China?! Whatever. Autum is apparently not good at the jumping portions of these games. Oh well she'll make it. And ya I think those are the classic colors not much to work with!
Oh then there's that creepy music:

Sep 17, 2009

Fire Autum cheats.

Original colors for fire Luigi! Remember them?! He had green hair and look no gloves! Obviously Autum cheats because you can't jump kick koopa troopas. As a kid I always thought the fire flower made them spit fire from their mouth and then throw it with their hand. So I always called it spit fire instead of fire flower. So weird.

Muramasa Immpu

Someone said Immp looked a lot like Muramasa's male protagonist, Kisuke. I agree! He'd probably look like this if he was in that world though.

This is HQ! What's the situation?!

Why is Snake such a meanie. I know I'm the one controlling him but does he really need to knock them out so they can get shot while face planted? Stealing their weapons over and over again is bad too. Look at him. He just lives to mess with him. Making them drop their weapons then shooting them in the ass, only to drag them in front of an oncoming tank. What a douche.

Sep 14, 2009

Now in 3d

Well not on here just yet. Random ship weapon junks.

Sep 13, 2009

It cannot be helped

Muramasa the Demon Blade. Now there is a pretty game. Painting in motion is correct. My sketching up there does it little justice. Akihime ... ahem...I mean Autum would probably fit nicely into that world. She is a bit meaner than Momohime. Look she kicked out all the monkeys after they so kindly lead her to the steam bath.
Boss battles are great, combat feels great everything looks nice, fun sword forging system, great music. Whats there to complain about? Ok two things maybe. I kind of wish the sub-areas didn't have to load and could be seamless instead. This would make it less obvious how often they reuse the beautiful backgrounds. I haven't gone completely through the game yet but I feel I've seen all the normal enemies the game has to offer. There's higher level versions but they don't even have recolors or anything. But again I have no idea how far I am from the end.

Little Big Stripclub

Little Big Planet is a great game with an overwhelming custom creation mode I have yet to touch on. I especially like the music, like in this underground strip club which plays this song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ScnxAkpbnc
The rest of the game's music is great as well. I dunno why Sackgirl Autum doesn't like it. Maybe its because she has no clothes ... or she doesn't like pink.

Poor Shepard

Poor Ragtime Shepard. He can have his choice of any woman he works with except the one he actually wants. Delicious Tali'Zorah nar Rayya. Tali always masked, always so cheerful and positive how could he resist.

But alas it cannot and never will be. Denied all that he could ever want ... ever need.
Unless ...

Sep 9, 2009


Metal Gear Online is a pretty fun game. Mainly because of its silliness. Getting knocked out and frisked is pretty great. Its fun until it becomes all headshots. Autum doesn't seem to enjoy it too much. Maybe she needs to use something other than a badly drawn tranq rifle.

Tender Shoveltusk Steak

And the long weekend comes to a close! I didn't even really know it was here. I wouldn't have if it wasn't for the great company I kept. ... OH and the MEAT! Here I am chowing down:

Ha ha well no ... I guess it wasn't like that exactly. More like this:

Either way the result was the same:

Oh and a PS3 Slim:

Now if I settle on any of these I need to figure out how to simplify them into just 30 - 40 straight lines. Should be fun!

Space Shoota!

Ships, ships, ships, ships, ships ships, ships and ships, ship's ships ... ships.

So I went to a restaurant called Onoir(www.onoir.com) today. The theme is ... you eat as if you are Blind! You eat in a room completely devoid of light. You never see your surroundings or your meal or the other people eating in the room with you(besides those you came with of course) The point is the food's flavor and texture are supposed to be that much better when your eyes arent being used. Its hard to say if this was true because the food was so damn good anyways. Here's some pictures of my 3 course meal.

Here you can see my "Grilled portobello mushroom with parmigiano shavings, and balsamic vinegar" It was amazing and fun trying to fork what I could not see. I ended up eating most of it with my hands.

This is the "Five spice fillet mignon served with potatoes and asparagus." Damn that was some juicey fillet mignon, medium rare as always. The fun part of this is when I tried to eat the asparagus I accidentally stuck it up my nose.

And finally the desert! "Dark chocolate mousse with raspberry" So good and a great ending to my meal. I love dark chocolate mousse!
All their servers were actually blind which was pretty interesting too. I also found out my watch hands glow in the dark! I had to hide it in my pocket because, yes, the room was just that Dark that tiny glowing watch hands were a distraction. I found the darkness to be comforting and would definately go again.

Ragtime Shepard. He's a loose cannon! But a DAMN good cop. First human specter, savior of the galaxy! He also has some creepy blue eyes and the voice of a weeny 18 year old pizza delivery boy. Go figure.
Splosion man made me want to start drawing things from my game collection! This one being the first ... or second.

Aug 27, 2009


I just bought Splosion Man on XBLA the other day. What a great simple and fun game it is! Splosion man is just some guy that can blow himself up 3 times. Your goal is to escape a lab by blowing you way through many puzzles and enemies, all the while collecting delicious cake. The explosion acts as a single, double and triple jump aswell as a wall jump. It has multiplayer too which is great when you finally get some good timing and coordination between you and your partner. It becomes an explosive dance as you blow up off of each other and walls. The character himself is pretty funny with some great animations and voices. Its well worth the 800 points it costs to download it. Now for some pork chop and apples sauce ... mmm mmm GOOD.

Aug 26, 2009

Where to?

Burr Ave. Haha! Right next to my place. All this time. Here I thought calling Bears, Burs or Burrs was my cool idea but it was right in my face all along.

And with a little shoopin ...

Aug 25, 2009

Mouth fit for a toblerone bar.

Worgan are really cool and all, but before I'd ever contemplate making one, I'd like Blizzard to do away with that god awful human model/texture. It is so dated and ugly compared to most things in they game. If they're going to give all the old stuff a complete overhaul, they better address some of the sadder areas of the characters. Humans with their monster eyebrows, triangle bending teeth mouths, goofy run cycle and weird lumpy bodies. Sure as a worgan you can switch back and forth at will, but which form is the TRUE monster?!

My Eyes

When I sit in front of my computer for entire days staring at my huge screen my eyes feel like they're swollen beyond belief. When I close my eyes it feels like my lids are being stretched over HUGE burning spheres. That is the sign of a GREAT day. And my eyes look like that.

Then I saw the Deathwing artwork...

Bathing in star light

Ah I love summer heat. So many good memories as a child lazing around in the hot humid air. But damn when you need to get stuff done the heat isn't the greatest for motivation. Makes you feel like you should just lie down somewhere and melt away into a puddle. Not a painful Wicked Witch of the West puddle but a nice relaxed and sleepy puddle. Maybe tomorrow, work ... maybe tomorrow.

Comon boyz, we gonna have us a WAAAAAAAAGH!

So many cool things about the greenskins. They're the best orcs from universe I can think of. I do like the WoW ones, all shamanistic and noble. But they're almost more like Klingons than what orcs should be. Rough housing beasts who live for nothing but battle. Thats what I like. The warhammer orcs were bred for battle. They are infact a Biological weapon created by an ancient race to combat the deadly Necron armies and their Citan sun gods. Obviously I need to write more about this...

I'm Dah Biggest Ork DERE ES!

I love the warboss. I love the warboss' boys. LETS 'EAR ET FOR DAH WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!

G.I. Joe!

No I didn't see the movie but I did try to make my Vegas 2 dude look like one. In a game that's as scary as any from the horror genre due to sudden and shocking round the corner face melting head removing deaths ... you have to look like a badass.
