A few days off

im on a little vacation today, ill post later this week.

Sorry, its not my fault that its summer!


Week 2: 30 days of gaming

NOTE: if you want to see the first five days, click here

Day 6- Most Annoying Character

The ENTIRE cast from the arcade game House of the Dead 2
Ooh do they just LOVE to state the obvious! Sure, you can drop a no-brainer on someone by accident, but after the third time you start saying OUT LOUD "really? No s**t!" Sad thing was that that if the characters never spoke the plotline might have been decent. By the time i was done playing this game i regretted the fact i did; only good thing that came out of it was that i didnt have to pay for it.

Day 7- Favorite Game Couple

Chell and GLADOS from Portal
In spite of Chell being the silent protagonist, GLADOS is always there to entertain her with promises of cake and sarcasm

Day 8- Best Soundtrack

1) Still Alive from Portal
Still my favorite score that was originally from a game. How else could you mention cake in a lyric and not be asked 'what were you thinking?!'

2) Mad World from Gears of War
One of the most moving song covers ive heard, especially if you listen to it and do nothing else, it does bring you down a level. Gary Jules really gave this song justice compared to the original which you can listen to here

Day 9- Saddest Game Scene

You're the Inspiration from ELITE BEAT AGENTS on Nintendo DS

No exceptions, its self-explanatory. This is the most touching scene i have ever played through, probably because it became personal, im not sure.

Day 10- Best Gameplay

GTA IV, no contest.

BUT that doesnt mean it is the MOST innovative gameplay, it's just the best.



Hehe, i know it was yesterday BUT i couldn't post because that meant i would have to pay 20$ just for basic internet at the hotel i was at for the holiday weekend. The Fourth of July fireworks at lenox in Atlanta was rained on the entire time, but the show started despite the rain. Everyone was soaking wet after the show, but hey: the fireworks still worked! I planned to film the fireworks until i learned of the rain, but i wouldnt have been a happy camper if i ruined my camera in the rain...

Anyways, I DID manage to take photos some of the places I went to while I was there, including the strange bathroom at the four-star hotel I stayed in. youll see why its so awkward.
The hotel room has a balcony, and this Carnegie monument is one of the landmarks you can see from there

Polaris Restaurant: right above my room

INaccessible toilet

Waiting for the train (didnt want to use flash, thats why it was blurry)

Here comes MARTA!

MARTA, the abandoned World of Coke (Coca-Cola) and the State Capitol building which is made of real gold

Polaris at night

Turner Field, with an Atlanta skyline (whats on the screen is a joke)

Only in Georgia could you have the best of both worlds

I do have more pictures but because of the bandwidth it took about an hour just to upload these photos, so if you want to see more, you will have to write a comment or send a message. I really want to show the photobomb i have to everyone, but ill have to edit the photo so its easier to see.Oh, and these ictures have not been edited in any way yet...

Happy belated Fourth!
