A note to anyone playing Fallout 3:
If you've installed the Broken Steel add-on before attempting the Finding the Garden of Eden main story-line quest, there's going to be a section of the quest where you're walking through Vault 87 (I'm pretty sure it's the Lab section--it might be the Crew's Quarters, though). You're going to come across a two-story room (like in every other Vault) that'll be the second door on your left after going up a set of stairs. Once you enter, two Super Mutant Overlords will come out and blast the bejebus out of you.

This is a pre-programmed encounter that I'm guessing was with Super Mutant Masters before I decided to pay money to up my character's level cap from 20 to 30. As soon as you step into that room, the encounter activates.

So here's a hint:
Backtrack to the stairs, and go into the first room on your left. Walk across that large room, and exit through the door on the other end. After taking care of all the other Super Mutants around, enter that same room from the other side (where the Overlords would be coming from). The encounter will activate, but this time, with the original Super Mutant Masters without Tri-beam Laser Rifles. Much easier to deal with.

I hope my seventeen hours of gameplay yesterday (note: not all at that part of the game) helps you out.

  1. The E3 Trailer for Prince of Persia that I downloaded a while ago on my Xbox 360.
  2. The haunting music from the trailer: Saeglopur by Sigur Ros.
  3. The Android app Shazam (originally developed for the iPhone) which told me what the music was without the need for me to do various permutations of the search: "Prince of Persia trailer music."
  4. My Playstation 1 memory card has somehow lost my save game data for my not-even-through-with-disc-1, but-spent-over-a-week-of-playtime game of Final Fantasy VII.

iPod, WinAmp, doesn't matter. If I tagged you, put your playlist on shuffle and tell me what the next 10 songs are. Then tag 10 of your friends and ask them to do the same.

Because, as we all know, you are what you listen to.

Hit the Alamo Jacks 3rd Anniversary Party last night and met up with the Sweetest Girl in All the World. We spent much of the evening playing Wordster on the bar crack video gaming machine with her ex-girlfriend's mom. It was good, however, meeting up with all the people I hadn't seen in a long while down in the Newnan area.

One highlight was hearing the opening "band" 8-bit Wonder, an act consisting of a dude armed with laptop, synthesizer, old Nintendo controllers, mixers, samplers and a mic, playing game-influenced Electronica/Dance reminiscent of VNV Nation crossed with whoever that band was that did "Pac-Man Fever."

Honestly, if you're going to put out a karaoke video game of rock ballads, what's the freaking point if you don't include Journey?

I threw my back out on Thursday morning, so I've pretty much stayed at home since Friday morning, relegated to bed. Unfortunately, my WiFi is acting wonky, so I only had time to do the following:
  • Watch this week's Lost.
  • Read The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John C. Bogle.
  • Read The Little Book That Beats the Market by Joel Greenblatt.
  • Watch Aqua Teen Hunger Force Vol. 1: Disc 2.
  • Watch Negima: Magic 601
  • Watch An Evening with Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder Disc 2.
  • Watch Touching the Void.
  • Finish Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones.
I wish I could have known I would throw my back out--then I'd have planned to have more stuff on the TiVo to kill time.

Apparently two separate studies have found a correlation between racing video game play and increased risk-taking on meatspace roads.

Despite most gamers' insistence that gaming does not affect real-life behavior, anyone who's gotten on the road after playing Rush 2049 or Burnout knows the little, evil robot usses that pop onto the shoulder and insist on taking shortcuts or trying to get more boost by running your fellow commuters off the road.

So last night, I ended up hitting a local bar for their Guitar Hero competition. Having played very little actual Guitar Hero II, I didn't sign up to compete, my primary reason for being there was to meet up with El Guapo, his brother [ profile] skander, and his other brother who to the best of my knowledge has no sort of blog. I get there somewhat earlier than the rest of the gang and mill about the bar while I wait for the Guapos. At one point one of the competitors walks up to me and asks, "Did you play at the competition at the Independent a long time ago?"

When I reply in the affirmative, he responds: "Dude, you're the reason that I play Guitar Hero!"

I'm not sure what to think of that.

Listening to the morning radio, I learned that the general contractor assigned to do roadwork on I-20 near Atlanta may be fined for exceeding the early-morning time alloted to blocking a lane on the interstate and causing a disproportionate amount of gridlock. Coupled with the recent news that Turner Broadcasting will likely pay some two million dollars for the media and police disruption of Boston as a result of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force viral marketing campaign, it occurs to me that if we're going to make people pay for screwing up traffic, then the purveyors of the Big Dig probably owe the city a pretty penny.

And finally, from [ profile] countessmary: Bold the series that you've seen for 3 or more episodes. Underline the series that you know for sure (or that you've seen them complete). If you want, add three more series (keep it in alphabetic order).

I added Beauty and the Geek, Cupid, and Psych.

[ profile] flattop, you'd like this the most: If I didn't live in a tiny one-bedroom condo without a deck/balcony/outdoor space. If it weren't $500.00 before shipping. If I had won the 280-some million dollar lottery those few weeks ago; I'd pick up one of these: Goodness gracious!

From the product description:
There many firepits and firebowls on the market… Most of them are less expensive than the Great Bowl of Fire, but from reading customer reviews at Amazon, I get the impression that they don't hold up all that well over time. The finish comes off, they can rust out or get dented fairly easily, etc. No such worries here. The Great Bowl of Fire is cut from quarter inch thick steel— you could hit it with a car and it wouldn't notice. Your car would though, so I don't really recommend such extreme product testing. A better product test might be to chuck it off the roof, but please be careful getting it up there, it's very heavy.
Guitar Hero night drew fewer participants than last time, but the game still enthralled many a cursory onlooker. [ profile] hammor showed up so that I wasn't the only one playing on Expert mode.

Note to self: Bouldering for an hour and a half prior to playing the game will only make your forearms ache when you're trying to beat "Crossroads" on Expert.

[ profile] hammor, [ profile] xenamungrrr, [ profile] glueandglitter, and [ profile] batnandu and anyone else interested in virtual rocking out:

The Independent (Located just above Aprés Diem and The Highlander) will be holding another Guitar Hero night this Thursday the 9th.

Be there.

I will arrive around 9 or so, arriving after rock climbing.

From Less Than Jake's cover of The Proclaimers' "500 Miles":
And if I get drunk, yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man that gets drunk next to you
And if I haver, whatever the fuck that means
I'm gonna be the man who havers next you
During The L Word get-together at [ profile] tankfreak's place last night, somehow my mention of a large number of AD&D 2nd Ed Player's Handbooks on Ziggy's bookshelf got me roped into being the DM for a bunch of characters that everyone rolled up last night. Having never DMed before, this makes me slightly apprehensive, but whatever.

Of course, almost every player is a lesbian. I need to start hanging out with people where my dating potential is > 0.

Name That Game using game sound effects. I got 17 out of 18 correct (I never played the one I missed).

You know what's worse than spending six hours in a meeting with slow-on-the-uptake people who just reiterate the same thing someone else said minutes ago?

Having to spend your birthday in said meeting.

The day got better (despite an hour-long stint in some of the worst Atlanta traffic I've seen since moving here), however, because aside from my No Idea order coming in the mail, the gang got together and picked up the Tekken 5 Arcade Stick combo. I'm way too into Guitar Hero at the moment, but as soon as I'm done with "Bark at the Moon" on Expert, the beatings will resume.

And, Cap'n Ken, you asked me once how does one play viola in a band?

P.S. To Walter and Brian, I'm really, really sorry.

I should not have played Guitar Hero until 10:00 PM last night.

Things to do:
  • Pack
  • Make Everwood DVDs for Mom and Dad.
  • Find issues of Fables and Y: The Last Man for Jerry
  • Watch as much TiVo as possible to clear space, as I've been spending too much time playing Soul Calibur III and Guitar Hero to catch up on television.
  • Dishes/Laundry
