My speed run on Comicpalooza

Hm...seems I'm banned from adsense for some reason....That sucks, but meh~

I was only at Comicpalooza for a short amount of time ( well short for me anyways) since the peeps I was riding with had to leave early ( 7 or 8 if I recall). There were a lot of good cosplays and costumes, of course there were the fattys and shit tier ones (mines included), but wow. I wasn't used to seeing 4 good cosplays for every 1 bad cosplay, it was refreshing
My face when I saw a Ghostbusters group and a hot X-men Evolution Rouge

My shit tier cosplay for that day was the anime influenced Red X from Teen Titans, that being because my friend wanted to do Raven from said series and didn't want to be alone in walking around costumed (she did an amazing job especially when compared to me).

This guy is Red X for a good reference
I personally hated the end result of my costume, the mask I made with of gauze wasn't as smooth and flat as it should have been signature I lacked gloves and proper boots, and, save for the mask, I wasn't able to emulate the details on the costume (the signature X's on the chest & gloves). I was my latest shame in a costume. Yet strangely enough there were people that still liked (especially the kiddies), so that somewhat made it easier for my paranoid self-conscious
Just like with my fail Quote cosplay, I pretty much know what all I need to do to fix up my Fail X.  First thing would be to get a morphsuit, since that's what most superhero costumes consist of. Second, I would need to completely scrap my old mask for a newer, more accurate one. And, of course, I would need to get accurate gloves, a better belt, boots, and a goddamn red X on my chest.

I'm looking forward to it, especially whenever I get the money for supplies. I'm defiantly going to have a blast practicing mask making with gauze and other materials. Hopefully I'll be able to post some results if I miraculously get a camera. 

But until then I suppose I'll bide my time with this powerful scene

Dead Space thoughts

(This was supposed to be Wenesdays post, but crap happened....)

Internet was up and running upon my arrival, so woot woot.
But later I got a virus from and my connection went out again…..

I finally downloaded some Virus and Malware protection though, and it cleansed me from the Net-AIDS.
So with that I over I can talk about space zombies/monsters/Cthulhu lite.  Finally beat Dead Space, and GAWD the final boss was a bitch! A multi-tentacle covered bitch!

Since everything else was horrible, here's Tree Trunks

This being the second (if I recall correctly) horror game for the 360 I’ve played, the first game being Condemned and I found that to be pretty subpar, it was pretty good.

For the first few chapters on the game, I was pretty much on edge. The atmosphere felt like I was stuck on the Nostromo from the original Alien movie (thank you Wiki), and despite the arsenal I had at my disposal; I felt like I could have been (and on several occasions) brutally murdered. Of course, halfway through the game I regained my balls and went from hallway checking pussy to Sigourney SchwarzaStallon (that’s a lot of S’s…)
And since I can't find a proper pic to emulate the badassnes, here's a guy with a cheetah head, beating a solider with another solider

I’d be lying if I didn’t say that the game almost seemed to have caught on to my confidence boost in the middle of the story and skewed my ass to remind not to get to cocky, fucking regenerating Necromoph.
The little puzzles that were present in the game were well designed, since at least one of the earlier puzzles stumped me for a bit.

I found the story intriguing for the most part, in a sense it was felt like I was in a mix between “Alien” and John Carpenters “The Thing”; my character and I was mostly isolated from other character/npcs, the ship was dimly lit, every dead body felt like a potential threat (which I stomped out). Dead Space had some really good atmosphere for the majority of the game and I look forward to bumming the sequel off my friend if he ever gets it.

Also this:

 I'll post about my exploits at Comicpalooza by Sunday hopefully

Woe is me...

The internet connection I've been sipho- I mean using has been acting screwy as of late, so posting might be scare until further notice.

Dead Island looks so freaking promising. I can't wait for it's release.


Modern Warfare 3 has been confirmed, and just like Black Ops, it' looks like it'll be fun..... I just suck at those games though.....

Almost completed Dead Space, so more on that probably tomorrow

Hope my connection's working when I get back to the lair....

Dead Room

I finally got around on playing the game Dead Space, and on my run through the first two chapters, I was pleasantly surprised. But before I talk about my deep space adventure, I'm going to talk about this.

Oh Hai 
This is The Room Tribute, a hilarious game (which can be found HERE) based on a hilariously bad movie. If you don't know about The Room, you can find an article of it on Wikipedia or better yet I can show you one of the many crowning moments of this flick.
The following clip contains top notch acting

The game, however, is not as painful to play despite it's main source of inspiration. While The Room Tribute follows the events that transpire in the movie to a T, it still takes liberties to make itself its own medium and a fun one at that.

Yeah, they went there
The things the creators hid in this game were just as  funny ( and at some points disturbingly random (still funny)) as the main gameplay. Of course at some points the game seemed to drag on for quite awhile, but other than that, it's a fun way to kill time.
Time to put you to rest
But I digress. Lets talk about Dead Space.

Only after a few minutes of gameplay, I can see why Dead Space won awards for things like atmosphere and sound design. After being thrown into the first chapter and having this ...."guy" chase my ass for the first few until I finally found my trusty Plasma Cutter. Of course, before I actually encountered any Necromorphs, I never left any room without stomping on every body on the floor.

Needs more stomping
My only complaint ( more like pet peeve) is the small text, but that tends to be a problem with a majority of my 360 games.
Definantly can't wait till it gets darker so I knock out some more chapters.
Just exploding with excitement

Heh, Assguard

Finally saw Thor tonight. I thought it was entertaining, I personally would pick one of the Ironman flicks, but Thor was quite the alright, and I defiantly won't mind seeing him in the upcoming Avengers flick. It just sucks knowing that Odin's horse isn't going to be in it....
And since I can't find a Youtube clip of Odin's BA horse, so this will have to do

F.Y.I. if you see the movie, stick around after the credits, you get a little cameo.

And here's a little backstory for the his horse as told by a drunk guy

Other than that, my finals are over. So other than trying to find some means of extra income, I have to figure what I might blog about next week; either some random monster hunt on Monster Hunter Tri for the Wii; or maybe monologue on some other game in my limited collection.

Well if worst comes to worst, I could probably take some random event out of my day next week and stretch it out of proportions.... or something like that

Now if you'll excuse me, thanks to this guys blog, I'm going to continue playing Lightning Warrior Raidy....

Judge me not

Virtual On Time

I still have one more final tomorrow before I'm free of this wretched semester. 

Al.....most.... t-there....

Despite my weekend being wasted on trying to cram enough words in my geology paper that was due on Monday, I was rewarded by my mad scientist Dev friend with an awesome time.

What was that awesome time?
That only scratches the surface

We  gathered the old trio, plus 1, (Me, Dev, Pie, and his bro) and hung out; watched Adventure Time, shot at each other, and played on a arcade he rebuilt/fixed up. That aracde was the fuck-tasically awesome Virtual On arcade

Gameplay video

Dev being the mad scientist that he is, wiped the freaking floor with us (22 straight wins). I don't know if it was the fact that I've been rereading Eyeshield 21 or what have ye, but I was getting closer and closer to beating him. Might be the a deus ex machina or something behind it I suppose.

We'll show em next time Viper

All in all it was an awesome night that bled into the next day. Was late to work, but I'd defiantly will do it again.
Well I'm off to study.

Not much to blog about this week, besides next week being finals week.
A blank week it seems
ON A BRIGHTER NOTE: Adventure Time
Fucking Awesome two parter episode

A majority of Adventure Time episodes are great, but this one just had an extra universe of Awesome in it.

My face for both episodes

So later on today, after making a couple of more dents in my finals, I'll be watching Thor. I've heard mostly good things about it. Not great things, just good.

So yea..... guess I'll leave on this note
