YAY! I’ve been here a whole year already! Today marks the 366th day that I’ve been a Xanga whore, and, similar to New Year’s, I’d like to make some resolutions.


To start off, I’d like to:



  1. Begin typing with capitalization. (You may have noticed from my last few posts that I have already begun to do this.) Although my grammar is at an acceptable level, I have recently gotten the impression that typing in lowercase is just a tad too low for me.
  2. I shall also try to insult random people less, although I CANNOT guarantee anything. Sometimes people piss me off to such an extreme that such measures become mandatory for me to keep my sanity.

Yeah, that’s about all I can think of right now. Piss off.

So if you’ve gotten the Plasma Saber and you put the Dragon’s Eye in the DS, does that mean you can’t have the Plasma Saber MK. II at the same time you have the True Dragon Sword?

The Plasma Saber IS the Dragon Sword except it’s part of a different costume. Therefore, they cannot both be in the same game.

take a look at the link methos, before making uneducated assumptions.

I suggest you take the time to realize that that’s a hacked game and it’s NOT possible in the actual game. That’s being used on a modded Xbox.

Think before making half-assed assumptions.

Which is EXACTLY what I stated in my post. Read before trying to “half assedly” insult someone.

Where exactly did I “insult” someone in my post? Can you kindly point that out to me? No?

I was pointing out a FACT. Unless you have a modded Xbox it’s impossible to cheat in this game and therefore it’s impossible to have both of those weapons at the same time.

Correct me if any of what I’ve said is wrong – which I’m sure it’s not – and I will gladly concede.

Normally, when one directs the phrase “half assed” at someone, it most likely implies some sort of disrespect or desire to insult.

And as for the question that the topic presents, it is not specifying whether or not it can be done fairly, it is just asking whether or not it can be done. My answer specifically stated that it is done by hacking the game, or modding the xbox, which you redundandly repeated.

Congratulations, thank you, and goodbye.

I’ve conceded, but I was looking for him [gamecubeholic] to point out where I insulted somebody in my first post – not my second.

He [gamecubeholic] proved me wrong using facts and I cannot argue with him on that point. But like I said… I was looking for an insult in my original post, not my followup one.

 

 

 


^SERVED

Very Hard is so unforgiving, that I am actually sobbing as I am writing this. I couldn’t beat the first boss for like 5 tries. THE FIRST FUCKING BOSS! YOU DON’T EVEN KILL HIM ALL THE WAY! He just kept blocking every move. In the end, I just spammed flying cicada. The dude was fucking brutal. I am now onto chapter 2, and the difficulty is simply not letting up. Basic enemies thrown at you all the time now take 3 times as long to defeat as before. And the damage they deal has been upped sadistically. A slice from a regular goon on Very Hard practically equates to a slice from a fucking BOSS on Normal. Elixirs have also grown in price. What used to cost 500 essence for one Elixir now costs 1500.


I, however, refuse to let this game get the better of me; I WILL FUCKING PREVAIL!




**EDIT 7/3/05**


I actually wanted to somewhat go back to this fight. Just this time around, I wanted a flawless match. In other words, get out of the fight without a scratch. SO MUCH easier said than fucking done. Instead of spamming flying cicada, I actually went about luring him to charge at me. Upon which, I would deftly roll around and then proceed to get a few slashes in. Then, I just rinsed and repeated. EVENTUALLY, it got to him. Couldn’t say it was easy though. The bastard got me into his grapples quite a few times, and I was forced to repeat that fight more times than I wanted to. Still got it though! :)

beat gaiden today. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC ENDING AND BOSS. the game in itself is fucking incredible, but you should know that already.


as i have stated before, however, this game is BALLS HARD. DEFINITELY not for the limp-dicked pussy at heart. and while the difficulty may alienate many a casual gamer, for someone looking for a little extra challenge in his/her gaming experience, this is the fucking filet mignon you have been waiting for. it’s worth noting that i beat the game today on Normal. there is also Hard, and Very Hard (which is unlocked after defeating Normal/Hard). I am currently attempting a second run at Very Hard, and quite naturally, it’s VERY HARD, lol. the enemies block a lot more, they break your combos more frequently, cause more damaging hits, take more damage to die, and generally make your life more unpleasant than it really should be.


i’ll be playing more in the following weeks, now that i’ve gotten used to the ropes of the storyline and such, i’ll be able to breeze through much quicker, provided i don’t get raped too frequently by these rejuvenated enemies.

today was pretty fun….biked like 13 miles to some park in god knows where. the hills were fuckin brutal dude. got some good sweat goin…hung out in the park a little, chilled, then parents drove back. i’m hot (both literally and in the figurative sense, but right now mostly literally), tired, sweaty, and most likely smell like shit (from being sweaty). this is why i am now leaving you to immediately take a nice cold shower. see ya.





ohhhh yeahh….i forgot to add: Ninja Gaiden is THE FUCKING SHIT. that is all.

summer’s in….and i’m already bored to shit.


you can summarize my summer activities fairly easily. in fact i’m gonna do it right now:


  • sleep

  • bike 20 miles every wed and sun w/ my pops (kinda father son thing, you know?)

  • work all of saturday

  • game average of 4-5 hours a day

  • skate (even though it’s hot enough to make hot pockets just by throwin them on the ground out here)
  • that’s about it…lol. it really is, i gotta find somethin to do. else i’ll be dead before this summer’s over.

    *SIGH*


    …..WOW, man. last finals are finally the fuck over. monday signifies the last day of school, in which we will be spending 5 1/2 hours with our thumbs up our asses doing stupid bullshit like signing yearbooks and “getting closure”. ah well, at least this year is finally over. it’s been a fun ride, first year in the big bad high school. had some good times. here’s to 11th grade, and the best summer of my fucking life!

    there is no measurement as to just how amazing i really am. not even 5 minutes after my previous post, i have found the wallpaper i need. it’s nice and black (no pun intended) and goes great with white font. expect this to stay for a while.
