Morrowind Addiction

I just got rehooked on Morrowind. Until I get a graphics card with Pixel Shaders, (I know, Geforce 2 MX.) I won't be able to run Oblivion. Oh well, I'll just have to let Morrowind murder my social life until I get a decent gaming computer. In the mean time, I am installing texture packs that replace Morrowind textures so that they look awesome. The files are on this site. I really think Morrowind is an awesome game. I found a way to prevent it by crashing... somewhat. I downloaded a few mods that are supposed to fix up some CTD glitches. (Hurray for White-Hats!) I like to say I!

Bucky Covington

Earlier today Bucky Covington came over to my High School and played about 5 songs. I don't remember the names of all of them, but one of them was "It's Good to Be Us" and "My Home Town". It's pretty neat to meet a guy on TV known by at least a million people. It was a local contest, so it wasn't anything special aside from the fact that a celebrity was playing. Kinda cool though.
Also, I just finished watching the rest of the Matrix trilogy. They just keep getting better and better. I lol'd at Deus Ex Machina.

New Games to Distract Me

I got 50$ to spend at Gamespot. So I bought 6 games for my Gamecube. I like them except for one. I think I made fairly good choices. Here they are.

Enter The Matrix: Wheee! Bullet time! I bought this because I am a Matrix fan. The game seems to be fun although I am a bit sad that I cannot play as Neo. Oh well, I"ll get over it. Really neat Kung Fu/Gunslinging

Turok Evolution: This game sucks. First of all, the game looks ugly. Second of all, there is a really unstable framerate. It seems the game runs faster when you are facing a bunch of enemies. I have no idea what the guys who made the game were thinking, but they should have spent much more time making sure this game was actually fun. The gameplay is really dumb and boring.

Soul Caliber 2: An excellent game. Since I got the Gamecube version, I have been playing as Link non-stop. I enjoy the game and think it is a really good and fun game to beat my sister at. So far I am decent at the game but I have a hobby of hitting K.O.'d opponents so that they scream their death cries over... and over... and over. It's actually not as morose as it sounds as it is really funny how they repeat the exact same sound over and over when you hit them. I dunno, it was funny to me.

Metroid Prime: Awesome graphics. Awesome gameplay. Awesome game. I love this game because it is fun, it looks great, and there is always something to work towards (i.e. a new upgrade that will allow you to do so and so). I really like the vast level variety and abilities you can collect. It's pretty neat how you can watch Samus slowly gain power so that she can smite the unclean. SMITE THEM, I SAY! MUAHAHAHA! *cough*

Ultimate Spiderman: Better than Spiderman-2. This game gives you the freedom of web swinging while having great looking cutscenes to back up the story. The combat is a little to wild, but the game is still really fun. Definitely worth getting especially if you like the Spiderman 2 game.

Viewtiful Joe: I've had the sequel for a long time, but I really like the first one too. It looks good and plays good. Nothing new if you have played the second one, but it is still fun. I like this game.

Game Developing

I think I might start to learn how to make games. I'll try to learn C++. I am sorry for the time absent from the blog, there is a lot to do. I am trying to learn 3ds max. 3ds max is not even close to Blender 3d in user friendliness though. Blender 3d has easy to learn, intuitive keyboard shortcuts that allow me to model quickly and efficiently while 3ds has tons of weird commands and out of the way tools that make it very powerful but extremely hard to use in polygonal editing. This is going to be hard.
