Too Tired from Playing to Go to Work

You think that excuse would ever work for getting out of work? It’s the honest truth. This weekend has been so full of activities. I am just beat.

Friday night was designed to cross of one of the items off of Michelle’s to do list. We had a drink or three out on the town. Actually it was four each. Things really come into perspective when you’ve had a few drinks. It was good to relax and get in the mood for the long weekend.

The weekend went on from there to include a birthday dinner, two BBQs, many hours of Wii Fit, bowling at Randall’s, and Rock Band. Here are some of the recaps.

If you don’t see it this week, remind me to tell you about our bowling league with the coveted trophy and the reason why my bowling nickname is Hula Hump.

Is it Friday yet?

A Momentous Occasion

Last night, something incredible happened. It was one of those times that I will always remember, where I was when it happened. Yes, I beat BrickBreaker on my Blackberry. I know the question Michelle is wondering right now. Does this mean you won’t be playing anymore? I don’t make promises I can’t keep.

Wii (Are Not) Fit

I got my Wii Fit this week, and I got my first chance to play it tonight with Michelle and my mom. That games are pretty darn hard. I wouldn’t say the Wii Fit is going to replace any sort of real workout, but for people that get zero exercise, it’s not bad. The difficulty of the games, not the exercise, is the discouraging part. No matter how well I thought I did in an event, I was alway an amateur. What does it take to be a professional? Well, I guess I will have to keep playing to find out.

I Totally Got Some Last Night…Online

I came across this image online, and I had to share it with you guys. This is the prototype controller for the Xbox 360 game, Vagina Hero. If the game is anything like the controller, it looks intense and confusing.

I can already imagine the posts in the support forums.

“So which of these buttons is the clitoris?”
“What’s this blue one do? Oh, for the love of god! Why?!”
“I figured an easy cheat in the game. Just press the red button as fast as you can to get a high score.”
“Am I supposed to play this game with my hands?”

I’ll Kick Your Ass…

I’ve been doing various activities involving physical ability. Well it’s time to add another one. I just purchased a Wii Fit. I’m about to blast those quads, while keeping up my balance and flexibility. I will kick your ass…online.

Who Would Buy This Game?

You have got to be kidding me. Who in their right minds would purchase this? When you score on your friends instead of saying, “this is why I make the big bucks,” you get to shout things like, “I’m going to be drafted first round to a team that has no chance of making the playoffs!” I’m sure they just took the NBA Live game engine and threw in some college jerseys and more white players.

Could they have picked a worse player for the cover? I guess it’s better than Joakim Noah’s ugly mug.

Did the marketing department actually watch March Madness?

I think this would make a much better cover.

This Makes Me Happy

The Next Evolution of Mankind

Man evolved certain characteristics in order to survive. There isn’t too much life and death survival going on these days in the modern world, so where will man get its next push to evolve? One could argue athletes are pushing themselves to new physical limits, and we know they father plenty of children. *Cough*Shawn Kemp*Cough* Still I don’t think this is where the next step in human evolution is going to come from, because athletes make up too small a percentage of the population.

Our next generation of evolved human beings will come from gamers. The new survival ground is the Internet. The eye hand coordination and finger dexterity on these kids is incredible. Have you ever gone online to play a game of Halo 3 and been killed as soon as you’ve signed online? This is the future of mankind. Now if we could only get these nerds some action so they could spread their superior genetics.

Nerds Finally Get Some

The Nintendo Wii has been selling like hotcakes for a long time now. The reason is simple. You can smack your friends in the head with a controller, because it’s that intense. They even make special adapters so you can feel like you’re doing real life things.

Looks so much more fun with these bad boys, huh? Well, the Japanese have taken things a step too far as usually and created quite an unusual adapter with a game to go along with it. I present to you, Super Pii Pii Brothers! I can think of a lot of other games to play with this adapter, but I’m sure the Japanese have thought of them before too.

Screw Guitar Hero. Guitar Rising!

I’m tired of people commenting to me, “I thought you’d be better at Guitar Hero since you know how to play the real guitar.” What the hell? What if were to say the opposite? “Wow. You’re really good at Counterstrike. Have you ever thought of a career as a sniper in an anti-terrorism unit?” It’s nothing like a real guitar. It’s nothing like real music. It throws your rhythm of quite a bit when you don’t play to the beat. I’m pretty sure you can’t play a real song with half the notes too. Well fear no more, guitarded minions. There is Guitar Rising! I better go get my electric guitar back from my brother. I’m sure I could play with an acoustic, but that’s just not cool.
