Tony Hawk's Pro Crastinator 2!

I know, still no new decent blog. I'm a slacker, my apologies. I even had the time to level up once more. I'm now a Rad Racer; not the greatest of games, but neither am I.
There's 2 or 3 good ideas in the works, but haven't had time to properly lay them out in writing. Also, there is one that I don't really want to share, because it's just so awesome :D.

I haven't been doing nothing though, I've been busy designing more crap! In particular, I've been busy designing a lot of things for the Gamespot Reviewers Union. I've made their official banner, icon and a heap of user bars.And this has payed off! I won the contest for designing the new icon and gdw0908 has agreed to help me out with a new case for my DS. Once more, I'd like to express my eternal gratitude for this. If you have not yet tracked him, please do so, NOW!

Also, I've quit playing Alundra (for now?) and have just finished reviewing it, based on those experiences. It came to me tonight, while struck with insomnia again. I do most my writing in my head, while in bed. Does anybody else have that?
I finished it in 2 solid drafts and it came out better than I expected, regarding points, but also a bit in text.

"Up yours, Elf Boy, I'm about to crush you"

As you can see from the new banner, I've now started the Zone Of Enders series and will be playing both respectively. I've also updated my "now playing" signature with it. But I'm more than likely going to make an all new one soon. Also updated the Union Icon bar and blabla. It's all fresh and new!!

I think there's also a few more videos online since last time. Not sure, but check em out.

In crappier news (yes, there's crappier still :o), my cartridge from Pokémon Blue died, right when I wanted to trade some Pokémon to restart Silver. Damn you and your offspring Game Freak. I will not be getting a new Pokémon game soon. You owe me 2 playthroughs, or at the very least a few decent, level 40 and above Pokémon. Send me a Gengar, Alakazam, Scyther, Wigglytuff and Machamp and we'll call it even.

To conclude, I woke up today with the insane feeling of wanting to play Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 all day again. for the sole reason of hearing it's awesome soundtrack. I'm in a punkrock mood, due to the sunny weather and that reminded me so much of this video. The sentimental value made me feel young and old at the same time. Apparently THPS2 had been the best game ever made for a long, long time. Did you know this? And I don't blame em. Back in the day, it didn't matter what background you were from or what subculture; everyone loved Tony Hawk games! Do you remember those days? Where skatepunk music made us all smile, while we tied virtual tricks together one after another? It created an entire new wave of skate and other extreme games, most of these are still influenced by Tony Hawk to this day!

If you don't own this, you're officially uncool.

and with Millencollin's 'No cigar' blasting in repeat, I'll leave you for now. The perfect lyrics for 14-year old inspired rebellion:

I don't care where I belong no more.
What we share or not I will ignore.
I WILL IGNORE!

We will shut you out.
We'll put you in doubt if you think that you're special.
We'll tell you who you are.
We'll tell you that you're close but no cigar.
But I don't wanna hear it.
No, it's more than I accept.

'Cause I don't care where I belong no more.
What we share or not I will ignore.
And I won't waste my time fitting in.
'Cause I don't think contrast is a sin.

What they say is...
Go back, where you came from.
They'll tell you that, but I don't wanna hear.
No I don't wanna hear. No I don't wanna hear it.
No, it's more than I accept.

'Cause I don't care where I belong no more.
What we share or not I will ignore.
And I won't waste my time fitting in.
'Cause I don't think contrast is a sin.
No it's not a sin.
