Halo 3 (spoiler free)

Me and C-dog waited in line from 8:30 to midnight at gamestop. we played the campaign on heroic co-op from 12:06 to 5:40 when we beat it. Then we played an hour and a half of xbox live.

-too short
-story too confusing
-ending is kind of anticlimactic
-better than halo 2 but nowhere near as good as halo:combat evolved

-faster matchmaking
-good weapon balance
-better than ever

-unlike Gears of War, there are actual colors in this game and it looks amazing

-simply fantastic

-didnt live up to hype
-legendary not worth $130 but the helmet is freakin sweet
-Better than 2, not as good as 1
-As far as games go this is among the best. as far as halo games go, its middle of the road. (1 being amazing, 2 being the suck, and 3 being "ok")

I get to house/dog sit for my neighbors tonight-monday. Given that I'm working today and tomorrow, I hope that dog knows how to hold it. Shouldn't be too bad, I just have to feed/water and let the dog out, sleep over there, and not drink the beer (beer is nasty so no biggie). Also no girls. Didn't see that one coming. I can have 2 friends over though so I might see if C-dog wants to come play crackdown or something.
Also, I hope to God I don't work Mon or Tues due to Halo 3. Tuesday is a definate no-go, but if I have to work Monday, I suppose C-dog could stand in line for me till I get off (probly at 9). Then playing "Teh Haloz" all night and whoring achievements all the next day. It will be a "Grand Occasion" indeed, my friend.

Lots of Things

1. My MacBook shipped from Shanghai at 11:31 today

2. One week till Halo 3

3. My mom's iPod nano came in today. She's very excited.

4. I don't want to work tomorow if the weather was anything like today. Twas so nice. Makes me want to go to Maymont and just sit for a while and listen to the waterfall.

5. Crackdown is a very addicting game.

6. Nightwish's new song Amaranth is amazing. Anette adds a whole new flavor to the sound of the band.

7. I like ducks. They are cool.

Lamborghini Reventón

OK, if you know me at all you know that I love Lamborghinis. In fact, the LP640 is my favorite supercar (well, it's tied with the Koeniggseg CCX). The idea behind this new Lambo is to create an uber exclusive car to rival or at least be reminiscent of the Bugatti Veyron. Basically all they did was take a .jpg of a Murcielago, photoshoped it so it looks like an 8-bit videogame, and slapped on a 1,000,000 Euro price tag. Thats roughly $1,350,000, almost the same price as the Veyron. Now, it still has the LP640 engine, so we already know the performance. The question now remains....would you rather have a hot-wheels inspired Lambo with the performance of a car that costs 1/4 as much, or a Bugatti Veyron which is the fastest car in the world? DUH. Sorry Lambo, can't support you on this one.

I just finished two papers this weekend. Procrastination sucks balls. One would think that after 12 years of school I would finally realize this, but apparently not. Whatever...time to go play Oblivion.

Apocalyptica + Rammstein = Change of Underwear

From Apocalyptica's Wikipedia Page:

"Apocalyptica are currently working on their sixth studio album, Worlds Collide, which is due for worldwide release on September 17, 2007. Till Lindemann of Rammstein will be among the guest singers. He will be taking on David Bowie's song "Heroes", which was also released in German as "Helden". Till will be singing the German version, making his song the only German-language song on Worlds Colide and the secound in the bands history."
