I'm so happy there's no work today. I didn't do much yesterday besides clean up the house and watch the NBA All Star game. I thought the intros of the players was funny, I'm glad they did a little something to spice it up a little this year, bringing out the personalities of the athletes. The game was fun to watch as well and actually came down to the last second. It was also cool to see the 4 Pistons play together and provide a spark for the East. All in all, I thought the NBA All Star weekend was pretty good.

I picked up Tecmo Classics yesterday, only because I saw Tecmo Bowl on it. I remember dropping the quarters on this arcade all the time. Wow, the problems this game has, lol. I can't believe football games have changed so much. You can't even pick which receiver to throw to, lol. Basically, before the snap, you can pick a guy as your primary receiver. After the snap, you can't change receivers and pass to the open guy, so if your primary is covered, you have to run with the quarterback. It's still a fun game and brought back a lot of memories. Another funny thing, you can't pick the play on offense or defense, the AI calls everything for you. So you have no idea what your assignment is or where the receiver is running his route. There are no punts in the game either, heh.

We are going to see Dora The Explorer on ice tonight. Nat is very excited about it. I've never been to one of these events either, but I hear they are very good.

Question of the Day: When do you think the Playstation 3 will drop?

In other news...Happy Birthday to the following OS'ers!

PS3 will drop first week of November...it'll be out this year no matter what.

I hate Monday's. I already blogged about it (plug, plug) and basically just rambled. LOL

I have to work today, but at least I saw Duke win the ACC Reg Season title, and JJ break Johnny D's scoring record last night.


Queston of the Day: Late Sept or Oct. Not like I really care as I won't be getting one at launch.

No work today. God Bless Presidents!!! I just got finished cleaning out the refrigerator. We were tired of opening it up and being like, eww! Next i'm about to go to the store to pick up a few items. Not doing much else today but taking it easy.

No school today.

QOTD: I don't care, I'm not getting one.

What's up?

Good weekend, back on the grind. Unfortunately I don't have today off but the day is flying by anyway.

The All-Star Weekend was great, IMO. They really presented everything well and put on a good show. The game was nice and entertaining last night.

I should be getting my own place in the next two weeks, I CAN'T WAIT!! I'd been looking for a while w. my boy to get a 2-bd place but I decided to add my sister to the equation (who's 25) and she said she'll live w. us. That means 3-bd rooms and we all get to save some $$ each month. Exciting time.


QotD: Don't know and don't care.

QotD: Don't care, not getting one. The emotion engine scares me.

Start the new job tomorrow. I have to go do the whole I'm new here, and I have no friends and I have no clue what I'm doing routine. I've done it once and it sucks, but after a week or two its cool. Anyways, today is my last day of freedom and I have nothing to do. I wish FN3 would drop tonight instead of tomorrow. I also have Full Auto coming from Gamefly and it should get here tomorrow, those will take up my free time. Just wasting time until Ghost Recon and BF2 drops, can't wait for those.

We have too many MS sycophants

QOTD: Around US Thanksgiving

My weekend was pretty good. as I watched some pretty good racing. (thank goodness NASCAR is back!) Tomorrow I go to see the Pink Panther so you will DEIFINETELY see my thoughts on the movie either late tomorrow or in this space on wednesday.

I may be going to see a Smokey Robinson concert in a couple months. He's going to be playing at a Casino and the seating prices are affordable. (25-35 dollar range) Hopefully I get to go this time as 2 years ago I had an opportunity to see him at Casino Niagara but it was on a bad date for me.

Another Monday, another day of work. It snowed a few inches last night so everyone will probably lay out and that will stick extra work on everyone else that does show up. I hope I'm wrong.

I watched Daytona yesterday and that will probably be the extent of my Nascar watching sice baseball is just around the corner. Is Tony Stewart annoying or what? He complains about the way people drive then he runs a guy completely off the track. His penalty; going to the end of the longest line after a stop and go penalty. What a joke.

I also watched the NBA All-Star game, it was watchable, but now that it's over, I will quit caring about basketball again. I don't know what happenned, I used to love watching NCAA hoops, but I can't watch any kind of basketball for more that 5 minutes anymore. I watched more of the all-star game than I have basketball all year long.

QOTD: Until they start making some good games, I am not really looking forward to it. I think I'll skip buying one at launch unless there is a can't miss sports game available. I think it will launch in November 2006.
 
# 9 The GIGGAS @ 02/20/06 12:48 PM
QOTD: Don't know, don't care... I'm not buying it, regardless of how awesome WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2008 is.

Nothing happening today either. Yesterday was a lot of SD vs. Raw.

LOL, not a chance of that happening.

A) She has a serious boyfriend
B) My sis and my boy have known each other for 20+ years, they're practically bro and sis too.

Yo Steve, its funny you brought up tecmo bowl. I was bored this weekend so I finally set up my home office, which includes the computer, tv, dvd, and yes the old NES. I was playing Super Tecmo Bowl yesterday. Damn that game is fun and its got a season mode. I've been playing as the Raiders and yes no one can stop BO. Bo can do it all! Also, started playing RC pro Am. Damn that game is fun...i think i'll play some punch out today since I'm off...although i can never beat that Bald Bull guy....

Question: Who cares about the PS3? Its gonna be too expensive and I'm not really feeling any of the games!

I think it will be out in November as well. But I wont be buying it at launch....I never buy a new system at launch so I doubt it will change this time around. Plus, the games don't interest me that much anyway. MGS4 should be good but other then that they really don't have anything that 360 doesnt except. Except MLB:the show but i'm confident that the MLB2k series will be great eventually....happens to every 2ksports game.


I watched every even during the allstar weekend and overall i'm pleased. Rookie/Sophmore game was good and competitive for once. Shooting stars was lame, skills challenge was pretty good (wade was amazing), but the dunk and 2 point contests were nothing more then average. The all star game was good for the most part too.

I have a day off today as well. It's not all good though. I have to write a paper, get a haircut, and do some chores all in a span of 8 hours.
