Art Portal

2009-06-19 15:54:18 by mimic12455

It seems the art portal has arrived, giving artist a place to post artwork besides the forums. I'm still interested in seeing if this will be a good system in the near future and what kind of tweeks they plan to put into this. Though the problem I'm seeing with having someone to scout you is the face there isn't any real way to do this with people who don't post flashes to let people know they are there.


Well, I got robbed

2008-08-09 18:04:53 by mimic12455

Hey guys, this is Mimic reporting from my room after getting attacked by three people while they rob me and my sas blind.

It started yesterday around 10:00, I was sitting in front of the computer and my dad was on the couch. Out of nowhere, some one comes through the door and jumps at my dad. I look for a moment, greatky confused, then another guy comes along and attacks me too. I try to defent meself, but I lack the training to defend me self. before I got sent to the ground, I saw another guy come in. They were all wearing masks/bandannas so I don't have a good discruption other then being around 18 and 25. The guy who had tue us with duck tape hit me dad a couple of time to stop him from moving, He lost concousness for a moment. He kept asking what was happening, I told him and made sure he was still awake. The robbers could be hurd, ransaking the place, saying something abot the VCR, and and one said that a person saw him or something.

So when they finally leave, my dad, I found out, had one hand free. must have been due to struggling so much with them. He manages to get out of the couch and unblindfold himself. He was very shaken from what I heard from my possition. I was still tied and had been till the police arried ten minutes later. My glasses are broken and damaged byond repair, which makes writing this message more difficult.

When the police arrive They helpped me out of the duck tape (with some painful results) and I managed to tell them all that happened. My dad and me went down to the ambulance and went straight to the hospital. It was a long night afterwords. Waiting, medical stuff, paperwork, and all that. I came out rather ok despit what happened, my dad will pull through, but won't come out of the hospital till later. My family came by the hospital when they found out what happened. Lots of worrying, questions and stuff. I stayed calm through the whole thing. I just wish the police find those guys and put them to justic for what happen.

THat's all for now, it's difficult write without my glasses on.


Mouse Troubles

2008-03-24 00:06:24 by mimic12455

I, much like some people living in cities or urban areas, have a mouse in my house.

It all started a few weeks ago. I had been minding my own business, checking out the web when a mouse skitters across the floor for a moment. My first reaction is "God damn it!" then I proceded to set up the glue traps for the little bugger.

Try as I might, the little guy seems to have eluded my traps. It even scitters by every once and a while as if to mock me in some strange way. Every night, I can her him scrapping the wall near my bed like my teeth do when I'm angry.

So I decide to get me on of those ultrasonic pest devices to ward the thing away. Should be here in a few days, hopefully getting rud of the little bugger. I feel as though I'm in one of those Tom and Jerry cartoons for some reason.

That's about it for now. Laters.


Mimic's Weekly Gaming Splotch

2008-01-16 00:38:54 by mimic12455

I thought about it for a while and I feel as though I should post Video Game information journals. I know you probably can get them at your local Game site. What I have planned is that I'll post either a fact, review, preview, rumor, or even a comment on the section in question. You may get to see something you haven't heard about yet.

If you want more information on a certain subject, I'll see what I can dig up and post it here. For now, I'll just post what I feel like. If you don't like my opinions, don't read it.

++Nintendo News++

[General]

From my experience with Nintendo and their products, I say they are headin in the right direction with it's interactive gameplay. Who knows? They might be the first to make a system where you can actually step into the game.

[Wii]

As you heard, Super Smash Brothers Brawl has been delayed till march 7. So you're not going to get it for another month. The good news is that you get to see more information on the main website and look forward to it's innevitable awesomeness.

[DS]

This is probably old news, but a Sonic RPG known as "Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood" should be coming out some time this year. I haven't heard any new info other then what was on this site: http://www.bioware.com/bioware_info/pr ess_releases/2007_06_21_Sonic_DS/
I'm still looking into it, so I'll tell you what I find.

++Sony++

[General]

You probably heard it all: the prices, the PS3, the jokes. They are still coming along slowly in the console war, but it's going in a forward direction.

[PS3]

After getting the PS3, I manage to get as much information out of it as possible. I manage to find something that I somehow over looked. While it does have limited to no backwards capatibility for PS2 games, I did find out that it can play any PS1 games with few problems. So that's a bit of good news for me since I do own some PS games. Plus it also contains a folder to hold PSP and PS1 games, another good thing since i lost all my memory cards for PS1.

I'll more information when I explore my PS3 more and install the wallpaper from newgrounds.

[PSP]

Looking around a bit, I came across a game coming out later in a few months called Patapon. It's a game where you control a tribe of small black eyeballs using the beat of the drums. While it may sound like a kids game, these little guys are anything, but kids. They have spears, axes, and arrows, going around killing anything in their way. Hell, Some of the bosses are three to five times their size. If I had a PSP, I'd get that game as soon as it comes out.

++Microsoft++

[general]

You probably seen it in some way or another. You were even forced to use it when you bought your computer last month. I'm talking about the Windows Vista. There have been many complains about it. While I have yet to use it, I can still help with advice.

If you recently got a Vista OS, then you will notice the slowness it gives you. I highly recommend you get help from the Geek Squad. You heard about them from many stores and sites. Sometimes you can have them check it free with ever computer perchuse. These guys definitly know what they are doing. They can have your computer up to speed and totally optimized for your conveniance. I highly suggest that if you haven't already, go to the Geek Squad website (geeksquad.com) and get that thing fixed.

[X-box and 360]

You probably heard about the Orange Box(Also for PS3). If you haven't, then you've got a lot of catching up to do. It has Half-life 2 and the much talked about (and parodied) Portal.

While there has been a lot of talk about it, but what caught my interest for it is the multiplayer game it comes with called "Team Fortress 2". I never got into the idea for the game until recently when I saw this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mY5qJHZ Cz2I

I don't know about you, but after seeing that and the rest of the "Meet the...." videos I suddenly found myself wanting to play it. I'll have more information when I get the game.

[PC]

THIS. IS. DATA!

+misc+

Another thing to add on things to know is that Darth Vader and Yoda will be appearing in Soul Calibur 4. No, this isn't a joke. As strange as it sounds, the force has been added to the game. Only bad thing is that Vader is for the PS3 and Yoda is for the X-box 360.

Got any questions or suggestions to improve this? PM or Email me and I'll read them.



New trailer for Duke Nukem forever is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWuteFL UPSY

I'm guessing that they are almost done with the game now.


Fire and Oreo

2007-10-04 13:18:44 by mimic12455

Saturday, two things happened that was unexpected and new.

The house about a block from my house caught on fire. Yup, there was a fire about a block from my house. There was smoke everywhere and it slowly became hot all around the place. Fire trucks and policemen came ten minutes later, the block was closed off to the public for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, I sat on my chair and drank some soda. I never found out how the fire got started, my current and most used explination would be "fire by kitchen" as it happens quite often in homes these days.

The next thing that happened was less dangerous, but strange. I was looking through the mail and came across one of those coupon offer things from dominos pizza. In the front, I see a picture of a pizza with vanilla frosting, oreo pieces, and icing on top of a thin crust. Cookies and pizza, together? That's madness! Now I'm sure it's tasty, but wouldn't this cause more kids to get fat?

That's all I got, laters.

Fire and Oreo


PS3 Removing Backwards Capatability?

2007-07-18 16:46:07 by mimic12455
Updated

So I went to a meeting a few days ago at 2:00PM to register for my fall art classes. I paid the fee and did all the discussion on what classes to take. An hour passes and I'm ready to go back home. As I leave the building, I thought about going to the mall nearby to stop by the game shop and check stuff out. Seeing if they update their stuff, only to find that they have even more baseball games at the play stations (not to be confused with the Playstation).

Anyways, I decided to check out the rest of the store before heading toward the International Spy Shop to buy.... something. One of the employee who work there asked if I wanted something and if I had any questions. So from there I asked about the PS3's price and if it went down $100 like I've heard. He said it did and gave me more information about it. Apparently, Sony is making a bigger harddrive for the PS3 and is removing the chip that allows backwards capatability; they are going to discontinue making the ones with the chip after July.

I'm not sure about the rest of you, but this pisses me off. One big reason is due to the face I have many PS2 games and I also can't put the PS2 and PS3 up at the same time cause I have not the space necessary to put both up. Another reason is that my PS2 is starting to show it's age. It's running slower, it's having trouble reading disks, it has dust in places that are impossible to remove, and requires it laser lens to be cleaned every 6 months which involves a very careful process of disassembling and reassembling it. I'm not sure how long a PS2 is suppose to last, mine possibly has another 3-5 years left.

Getting back on topic, Removing the chip and adding more gigs to the hardware just doesn't seem logical. I know Sony has been lacking in benifits lately, but this is just rediculous. Sure, I could use emulators but that slows the game down something fierce. I have yet to get a PS3 due to my dad not letting me have one, saying that the money should be going to education.... or the bank.

And that's all I got for now. For more information, check your favorite gaming website or click here:

Till next time, laters.
