Time For Anew

by on
I'm updating my whole GameSpot profile in the coming few days. Just now I finished updating my game collection/now playing/tracking/wish lists on GameSpot. I took off all games on my collection that I no longer own. Cleared off games off tracked list that have already been released, and things off wish list I've already purchased.

I'll also be making myself a new profile banner/icon/header. I'm not sure on what to put on them yet. If you have any ideas please share, can't promise I'll use them though, nevertheless ideas never hurt.

While I'm making banners and images for profile I'll be making some for my union too. Also check this.. I got a union request today.. from the leader of a union that's the same basis as mine too! I know mines not one of kind, but how arrogant to invite me to their union when I have my own of the same nature. I had NO idea who this was, they weren't on my friends list or anything. I figure they spotted me off the union recruitment forum, when I made a post for my union. So union wars anyone? It'd be fun, but no. They'll cream mine, expierence and more time being established.

Anyway, I got off topic there. I'm making images for my union, news posts, and such, I'll also try to do more with the union in the next few days too. Well, that's all for now.

Thanks for reading, peace!

We Want You!.. For the Chatterbox!

by on

At like 6:14am my union was formed. Thanks to all that accepted the charter! I'll try to get the basic threads and sticky's down. (3 threads in 15 minutes :evil: )

GameSpot's HTML is hating me as usual, so stuff might look odd here and there. Please if you have an interest in just talking about anything, and having nice conversation about movies, games, news, whatever, check out my union. Chatterbox is the name it goes by and just click the header above to check it out.

Thanks.

Union Name + Resident Evil 5 Music Video

by on

Hi again. This blog will be a short one.

I thought up of a name, and tell me what you guys think of it. I have come up with the union name "The Chatterbox" inspired by the basis of the union being just about random chatter. That and the Grand Theft Auto 3 radio station "Chatterbox". Credits to the name goes to MajikToaster, Dom helped me come up with it.

______

Also.. I said in the update to my previous blog I was working on a GMV. I finished it earlier today. The GMV is about Resident Evil 5, I used clips from the trailers, so I didn't have much to work with but I managed a 2:55 long GMV out of it though. You can view it below.

Also here's the Youtube link incase you're like me and GameSpot videos don't work great for you.

First off I want to get these images for the start of the union up. These are all just temporary, and will be changed quite a bit over time. Below are the links to the union banner and homepage header. Please check them out.

Plans so far are few and in between. I'm not going to rush into this like my last union, I'm going to make sure about everything first. I really need a union name and I have some ideas but I would love to hear from anyone on their ideas, if any. Also I'd like to know if you'd join the union, if no one will join, I don't see why I should go any further.

If you're not up to date with this union idea, I'll refresh you on what the union's about.

My possible union is a union about anything the existence. You can talk about video games to clothing to your homework. All talk is possible talk in the union. I'm guessing it's going to be big on video games and other popular culture. Movies, games, and all that fun stuff is involved in the union, and if you have something to share about any topic, you'd be about to share with the union.

I also want to make most aspects of the union to be chosen by all members and not just management. I want members to be able to help choose who or what will be on the banner/header and so on, chose what posts would be good stickies, even vote on officer positions, when they come around. Anything that could use every one's voice to decide, will get everyone's thoughts on it.

You can probably expect more blogs like this in the future, to update people on how it's going from time to time.

Peace.

-UPDATE-
Syrinx61 and SavoyPrime have been updated on the charter list, just like all who accept will be.

I'm working on my FIRST GMV, which stands for Game Music Video. It's like an AMV but with footage from a game's gameplay/cutscenes. I'm just getting clips and trailers right now, so I don't know how it will turn out, but I hope for mediocre!

A Blog Cram-Packed Full of Blogness

by on

Hello guys,

I've been keeping my self busy the past few days, and thought I would tell you guys what's been going on with me recently and things like that. Ths blog will also have information about an idea I'm having, but not sure about continuing on with. I would love to hear anyones thoughts or comments about it in the comments.

Glitch or No Glitch?

I've been trying to his this image on my blog, so I was going to post the image link with the image tags, like you would usually do, in the Blog Desciption box, so it would be under my header. Instead, everytime I paste the link and click accept or confirm or what have you, it refreshs the box and the image tags and link is gone. If I have just plain text it stays, but if it has the IMG tags, it just vanishs. I was just curious of that's a glitch, or just something GameSpot took off. If you have any thing to tell me about it then please do.

In Music News..

If you didn't already know, I'm obsessed over this band from the UK called McFly. They're a pop/rockish band, with a lot of songs about love, friends, and things inbetween. Right now I'm listening to pretty much every song I have by them, but my top ones are: "Umbrella", "Five Colors In Her Hair", "Transylvania", and "The Heart Never Lies". If you happen to know of this band, and dislike them, please keep your comments to yourselfs, I do respect other's opinions, but I don't want to start an argument with anyone.

Besides McFly, I'm listening to the usual stuff. Bands such as: 30 Seconds to Mars, Tenacious D, Dio, The 69 Eyes, The All-American Rejects, Aerosmith, Apocalyptica, All That Remains, Entwine, Bloodhound Gang, Boston, Coldplay, The Killers, The Hives, The Vines, Theory of a Deadman, Gorillaz, David Bowie.

I really like too much music, even some rap(omgz!). If you'd like to know much about my favorite bands, top songs and things of that manner. You're welcome to visit my Last.fm profile. Also, if you happen to be a member of Last.fm you're welcome to add me as a friend.

You might know about GameSpot and it's various branch sites, or sister sites as I call them. Sites like TV.com, MP3.com, Movietome.com. Well, I'm trying to get more into MP3.com. I never really did much on it, or the other sister sites, but MP3.com seems pretty fun, to catalog my favorite bands, songs, and even review them. So I think I'll try to become a bigger part of that community.

In Gaming News..

I finally beat Grand Theft Auto IV! I stoppeed playing it for a while when I was on the last mission due to getting annoyed by the last mission. I'll not spoil anything but let's just say I got annoyed when I'd get kicked off the chopper in the final mission and when I hit the water, even with full health and armor, I would die sometimes. Then at times as soon as I got in the boat to chase the chopper, a rocket would nail the boat and "mission failed, the boat was destroyed". Nevertheless, I turned on the 360 and put the GTAIV disc in this Monday and beat the final mission the 2nd atempt, since the ocean of death got me again the first try.

I'm also excited to hear a lot of RPGs are due to release on the 360. I was watching the weekend block of X-Play, on G4TV, Sunday night, and they were talking about a new Star Ocean for 360, and some other ones, I just can't remember the titles of them, but they all look nice, and I'd like to atleast try them out.

Also on the note of RPGs, I just can't make myself play Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion much recently. I load the game, play for 10-20 minutes and I'm spent. I think the fire has burnt out, but I've said that before and started back on a game and finished. I'm going to do my best to finish TESIV: Oblivion and Enchanted Arms as well. Overall Oblivion's a decent game, but with a good bit of bugs, and such, but I can look over that for the most part. Except for one.. I can't finish a side quest because I think the guy I need to talk to is f***ing stuck in the wall of an Inn. I see his shadow but she's nowhere to be seen. Fail.

A Union Idea??

Shockingly enough, it's true. I've come to the terms that if I don't make a union or become a big part in one that I don't have a big future in Gamespot. Sure I can stop by here and there comment in blogs that I care about, and checks updates and whatever, but I actually want to get more out of GameSpot, like I did a long time ago, before Street Fighter Union's(now Fighter's Realm Union) awesome leader, and friend Rick(Demon2545) left his post after years in that place, and left it to HORRIBLE management, and basically turned it into the Soul Calibur and n00bs Welcome Union. After that there was The Resident Evil Union, which was fun when they cared about the old RE games, now they just care for RE4, RE5 and losing substance. Then there was my favorite union to date "The Crimson Butterfly Union". I joined having no idea what it was for, it just looked fun, and I knew Thora from the Resident Evil Union. So I thought it would be fun, and it sure was. Then Thora closed it, made another, then left us again.

Don't get me wrong Ron, I know you'll read this, The RPG Temple is fantastic, and glad to see it's still has great as it was when it first started, I just need my own thing, and I'll be sure to get back to posting your union soon as well.

Anyway, I haven't gotten to far in my idea yet, I was thinking of miscellaneous union, where all talk is welcomed, a anything about everything union idea. That way people won't have to think to hard to post, since you just post about a new game you have, or what movie you want to see this weekend. Something like that I can really get into, because you all know I can talk about anything.

If you approve or disapprove of this idea, please let me know. I would love any ideas or feedback from anyone. Also another thing I would need is a name, of course. I have no ideas on that matter as of yet, but that's not my biggest concern. My main concern is charters. I would need the usual 6, and I have one reserved right now. I'm not giving charter positions off like candy, so to get a spot, you'll have to have my trust for the job, and you know if I would have your trust or not. I'm not asking charters to be active or post 20 posts a day, but just be there if I need you.

All that above is if I EVEN do this, which I'm pretty set on it. Some of you know I tried a union before but never stayed to into it. I apologize for that, and the reason I couldn't is because it was an anime union. Anime was slowly leaving my insterest at the time. A union like this I don't see how I can lose interest in a union where all talk is welcome.

The Final Note..

I figured this would by a long blog, and looks like I was right. If you read every bit of it, than thank you so much, I really appreciate anyone who would care this much to read this much. I hope everyone out there has a great rest of the week and keep the gaming going strong.

I want to also wish my friend Dean best of luck with the rest of his musical, and I'm glad he had a great first night

"Wii Fit tells 10-year-old she's fat." - My take.

Wii Fit tells 10-year-old she's fat

The Daily Mail is condemning video games again--and this time it's Nintendo that bears the brunt of its vocal indignation. Although the Wii and DS have been generally insulated from the usual haranguing of traditional video games in such sections of the British press because of their popularity among the elderly, women, and on cruises, family friendly Wii Fit has managed to incur the wrath of the tabloid.

The reason is that an unnamed 10-year-old girl from South East England was told by the game, during its Body Mass Index test, that she was "fat." (Wii Fit actually puts users into a variety of categories, the two heaviest of which are "overweight" and "obese.")

The stepfather of the girl, who didn't want to be named for her sake, said, "She is a perfectly healthy, 4-feet-9-inch-tall 10-year-old who swims, dances, and weighs only six stone. She is solidly built but not fat. She was devastated to be called fat and we had to work hard to convince her she isn't."

The paper then enlisted the opinion of Tam Fry, a spokesperson for the National Obesity Forum, who called for a ban on kids playing the game, presumably meaning she wanted to see it brandishing an 18 age gate sticker. She said, "I am absolutely aghast that children are being told they are fat. A child's BMI can change every month and it is perfectly possible for a child to be stocky, yet still very fit. I would be very concerned if children were using this game and I believe it should carry a warning for parents."

However, Nintendo declined to entertain her suggestion, simply saying, "Wii Fit is still capable of measuring the BMI for people aged between two and 20 but the resulting figures may not be entirely accurate for younger age groups due to varying levels of development."

Okay, okay, okay, okay. I just read this article on GameSpot, and just couldn't stop laughing. I mean, this is ridiculous.

"She is a perfectly healthy, 4-feet-9-inch-tall 10-year-old who swims, dances, and weighs only six stone. She is solidly built but not fat. She was devastated to be called fat and we had to work hard to convince her she isn't."

Even though she's 10-years-old, she can't be THAT dumb. I don't mean to insult the little girl, but she knows if she's fat or not and she's definitely not devastated by something like that. Furthermore, I think the father has a fathead, and complaining over something this trivial is just wasting time of yourself and the company. I guess if they didn't waste their time with that, I wouldn't have anything to write about at the moment, though.

REGAMER-X's Top 5 Songs of the Moment

by on

It's been a long time since I've done a blog of this nature. So I decided to give it a go again. This is a basic countdown of the top 5 songs I have a liking to at the current time. Some of you might know some of the songs, but I wouldn't be surprised if you haven't even heard of them, so I've added links to the videos thanks to no other site than Youtube. I tried embedding the videos in but GameSpot hates me. So just click the song's titles to go to the video.

Disclaimer: This is a major white boy blog. If you're not into white people music please be cautious.

5) Viva la Vida by Coldplay
I couldn't get a video of the full song, but this is the iTunes ad for the song.

4) All These Things That I've Done by The Killers
I've always enjoyed The Killers, and this is one of my favorites of theirs.

3) Vagabond by Greenskeepers
This is one of the songs off Grand Theft Auto IV, it's also on one of the game's commercials. You can find this song on Radio Broker.

2) Shine On by Jet
Can't help but love this song.

1) Pork and Beans by Weezer
Probably one of my favorite music videos of all time. If you're a youtube fan, you've probably seen this by now.

High School Graduate

by on

Well my graduation was at 8:00 tonight! I'm so glad it's over, I was thinking I was going to mess up and do something wrong but thankfully it went great. Ran into some old friends that went to a different school or whatever.

I'm so ready for a break, and I'll take full advantage of this. Unfortunetly I'm not going to a party or anything, since I way too tired and little sick, so not in a big mood for it. I think I'll save my party energy for later.

I finally manged to write up a review of the game. It's not completely in depth with every aspect of the game, but covers pretty much all you need to know without getting spoiled or anything. Please read if you've played or are interested in the game. Enjoy.
