Used my 48 hour xbox live gold thing , only it didnt work.
No online play for meng :|
Also. not sure if i said yet but i got Viva pinata , Lumines Live , castle crashers and Beautiful Katamari yesterday. Joy. Just what i need when im supposed to be doing work.
ps. my gamertag is mengplex if theres anyone i havent added yet? (i still dont really know who reads this thing.)
So today was pretty much shit. (not to be confused with ‘the shit’ of course).
Went to aunts house (on my dads side) , and it was pretty much the most boring 7 hours of my life, i want them back to be frank. Got there, exchanged a few words with people , then went to twiddle with my thumbs for 7 hours ,because i dislike most of the people there – bloody family of showoffs who cant talk about anything which doesent big themselves up.
Played some DJmax Black square (which was released/hacked last night) , its pretty good , like clazziquai style but hard.
They put on ‘Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium (2007)’ , which – other than the first 10 minutes and the last 3 minutes , was a horrible horrible movie.
Ah well. at least i dont have to do that for another 365 days.
ps. my right arm kinda aches in places from p0werballin’
Seriously. On every board , at the end , there are 2 areas which are a different colour – it doesent matter what region of monopoly you’re playing , buy the last 2 before GO.
Obviously buy everything else you can , but go for these two. Once you have both , pump houses.
When mayfair is ‘maxxed out’, £2400 for landing on it. This turns into the ‘game over’ square essentially. Nobody has that much money. They will go bankrupt , and have to sell properties , thus getting poorer and poorer. Obviously , only owning 2 squares of the board may be trying , but eventually , they will all succumb. Happens everytime. And then? you win.
I know this from experience , i spent somewhere in the region of 8 hours today playing monopoly. As soon as someone has both of those , they insta-win , you may as well just give up if its not you because defeat is inevitable. Infact , in the 2nd game , we ended up going 4 on 1 trying to not go bankrupt by the devil who had both of them , we lost. (we let each other go rent free , so that we in theory can just keep gaining money from her.) How depressing.
And that is the story of my christmas , woke up , opened presents , went to grandparents , played monopoly , lost , played scrabble , lost (although i got ‘Retina’ , ‘awaken’ and probably some other cool stuff too) , ate dinner , played scrabble again , lost again , played monopoly , lost again. Go home.
Tomorrow – Its the other family get together , thankfully, DJmax blacksquare has sorta been hacked , so i get to be antisocial and play that, Yaaaaaaaaassssssssss.
Have to say , i think the amount of presents i get is decreasing with each year.
At least this christmas i get a secret santa present to look forward to as well as a weird shaped present from frances (its like some sort of prism shape… :S )
And of course there is the 360 and new TV , although those werent my presents in particular , but they’re nice to have around. (completed dead rising today yay!)
Frances came over for dinner last night , and to meet the family and all that. She was scared to say the least but it all seemed to play out well. (may i also add she’s surprisingly good at guitar hero – also the quietest drummer/strummer in the history of the world)
Christmas day tomorrow eh , lets hope i get some better presents than last year…
i mean, doritos and dip is pretty cool i guess….
and the best present i got last year was probably the copy of psychonauts that leetfella bought me lol – speaking of which , xfire says he got an upgrade? I guess we have to go back to making fun of raveys pc? :/
Merry christmas to all the readers , and a big fuck you to my non-readers ^_~
Probably the best TF2 video ive ever seen , far better than that artsy pyro shit that was floating about everywhere a while ago.
Yeah, so i havent been online much lately – aside from the TF2 / L4D last night.
Mainly because ive been playing on the 360,
Finished halo 3 on heroic mode the other day , pretty decent game i guess – but its very much the same sort of thing all the way through. Multiplayer is more fun thankfully. Cant really decide whether it was long or short , guess that means it was somewhere in the middle – the sand level was fucking ridiculously long though (the ark).
I think i finished dead rising? Im not sure.. i got to the end of the 72 hours , helicopter arrived.. sorta.. then i got the achievement for survivor and 10 survivors rescued , unlocked overtime mode… and then the game kept going? *shrugs* oh well. more the better , although the spec ops guys are fucking gay.
Also finished GHWT on drums on hard , however the move from hard -> expert seems a little ridiculous – with double bass beats and just random offbeat bass kicks. Havent really started the guitar career mode yet since guitar is kinda old. I’ll probably do it sometime anyway though.
mm , maybe when i go back to uni you’ll get posts which arent about me kicking ass at games :3
