Ninja Gaiden Sigma PS3

I decided to play this game in my backlog and already considering shelving it. The game itself is beautiful and the controls are very tight. HOWEVER….the load times are soooo bad and I mean sooooo bad. It at parts can take literally from dying to continuing 4-6 minutes. At first I thought it was a problem with the PS3 of mine however this seem’s to be a big complaint most people have. People want to love the game but the load times kill it. I might have to get the xbox version to actually enjoy it. Just that it’s a not very forgiving game. Very arcade like and nintendo hard.

CANABALT

Canabalt is a flash game where your sole purpose is to run (which is automatic) and jump building to building without falling to your death. You’re scored by how far you can run. The levels themselves are all randomly generated, and it’s damn addictive.

Play it! Now-like!

Hubs and ashes and rising and things

After nearly a decade of being dead in the water, the old Montreal RPG Hub has risen from the ashes to become the RPG Hub! The site is still growing in features, and it might look a little rough around the edges, but the ball is rolling and things are happening *snaps fingers in the air*.

If you’d like to be an author, let me know. Furthermore, if you’d simply like to be a moderator (comments, forums), let me know. Otherwise, you’re free to create your own account and join in the community like any other.

This site is still for personal things, crazy stuff we find on the internet, and for video games and technology. The Hub is for RPGs, Board Games, etc.

Patrick Swayze dies at 57

Oh man, that sucks. Definitely an icon of the 80s and I really liked him in later roles like in Keeping Mum and Donnie Darko.

Actor Patrick Swayze, best known for his roles in the films Dirty Dancing and Ghost, has died after battling pancreatic cancer.

The Houston-born performer, who studied dance before tackling a career on stage and screen, was 57 years old.

“Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months,” said a statement released Monday evening in Los Angeles by his publicist, Annett Wolf. No other details were given.

Random Thoughts of People Our Age

1.     I wish Google Maps had an “Avoid Ghetto” routing option.
2.     More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me.
3.     Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.
4.     I don’t understand the purpose of the line, “I don’t need to drink to have fun.” Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they’ve invented the lighter?
5.     Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you’re going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you’re crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.
6.     I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.
7.     The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase “Regards” again.
8.     Do you remember when you were a kid playing Nintendo and it wouldn’t work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ’s. We just figured it out. Today’s kids are soft.
9.     There is a great need for sarcasm font.
10. Sometimes, I’ll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the fck was going on when I first saw it.
