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
