adventures in breaking new vegas

so i've been playing fallout: new vegas again and it's a lot of fun. Yay. The only bad thing is the game runs pretty awful on ps3. The lag and all that was so bad my game could play for about 10 minutes before slowing down to unplayable levels. Unfortunately there's no way to fix it. The save files just get too big and bethesda doesn't care about the ps3.

So I switched to playing my game on PC instead. I actually have a decent computer now and can play the game on the highest settings possible. I also installed a bunch of mods to make the game cooler. One of my favorite ones stripped out the extra color filters and makes the game look more ~realistic~. I am mesmerized by how much nicer it looks.

BUT being me, I always break stuff. My favorite things to do in games is to climb on stuff that the game does not want you to climb on. I don't know why. But, while playing the game, I noticed there was a spot where it looked like I could climb onto the roof of one of the game locations (Camp McCarran). I did *not* use the console commands to shut off clipping to get up here. Kayla watched me do it on stream, it took a few tries, but I managed to scale up the side of the supply warehouse which was connected to the main airport. From there I started to explore...

Very large pictures. I was too lazy to resize them )

Games of 2014

I still do this dumb game meme because it's fun for me to watch how i end up playing less games as each year goes on?? LIKE WHAT EVEN. oh well maybe this year will be different. or maybe this is just my new thing. it would also help if i tried to play new games instead of the same 5 titles OVER AND OVER AGAIN (but at the same time, if im having fun who cares??? IDK!!!1!) though I also tend to feel bad if i have unplayed games sitting on my shelf year and year. :x
A CUT that i forgot to put in the first time cuz im good at things )

some kind of an update

Some things that have happened recently... uhm...

I'm moving again soon. Well, October to be exact. Everyone here is tired of dealing with the landlord's crap. She is too cheap and hires workers to fix things that aren't really fixed when they leave. They were going to leave my sink leaking more than it was when they arrived had I not intercepted them and informed them it was still pouring water out the bottom. They also "fixed" our back gate by making impossible to open unless you literally body slam it. Plus the house is old and kind of falling apart. Stuff we want to fix or replaced (our oven isn't broken, but it is literally the worst oven I've ever used in my life) the landlord is just like WELL IT ISN'T BROKEN SO DEAL WITH IT~~ so everyone is done. just done.

Not looking forward to moving (really) but it might be nice to start over again with placement of everything.

Last week was all the E3 stuff. The only thing that consistently made a presence to me was Sunset Overdrive. It's made by my favorite game developer (Insomniac Games, surely people who read this know that already?) and it just looks SO FUN. Anyone who followed my (surely obnoxious) live tweeting of all the e3 stuff probably saw me whine about how it was the game I wanted the most. But... its Xbone exclusive. I don't want an Xbone, I told myself. It's not worth buying an Xbone for ONE game, I said.

Well then on Wednesday morning, Insomniac posted about how they were doing a ~public event~ in Los Angeles showing off Sunset Overdrive, doing giving away some posters (for pre-ordering the game) and some other stuff. I was at work, and I immediately started debating. Should I go? I loved the last Insomniac event I went to, probably the most fun I've had at something in a long long time. Surely it would be similar... right?

Well, I went. AND IT WAS AMAZING. I got to play the game too! IT IS ALSO AMAZING. The mode I got to play was a multiplayer mode, but I got to play with all the weapons it has the I love the colorful art style and fast movements. There is a gun that shoots vinyl records. And another one that shoots explosive Teddy Bears. LIKE REALLY. The worst part (for me) was that the demo came without an inverted Y axis so it was a bit difficult for me to play. I'm one of those people that ALWAYS has to switch the axis. (for those who don't know, it means making the camera controls so down is up and up is down) I don't know why? It's always been that way. Even if I forget to change it when I start playing my camera angle is immediately shoved into the floor and I know why. My brain is just wired that way!! So I kept having to make an extra effort to turn the camera.

I still managed to get 3rd place in my group though. Somehow. I was also in the first group of people ~in the public~ (ie: not E3 attenders) that go to play Sunset Overdrive.

I also got a super cool signed poster...which I unfortunately am unable to share a picture of... becauuuuuuuuse as I'm typing this my cell phone just broke. For... no real reason.

WELL I guess I know what I'm doing for the rest of the afternoon.

Games Year in Review 2013

LOOK ITS THE VIDEO GAME MEME. AGAIN. because someone cares about my game stats. ok maybe its just me thats okay

Take a look at the last two years: 2011, 2012 (ignore that the second one is titled 2013, apparently i forgot how to numbers)

under the cut!!!!!!!!!!! )

i'm still sorry bioshock. someday......~~

so 2013 is over and im not sure how i feel about 2014 yet. I mean, good news is I get to go see Kayla in her homeland of michigans on the 6th. I am so in need of a vacation. I haven't been away for ages.

Although, I've been having a lot of pain again, and I'm worried (slightly) that its the cyst trying to ruin my fun times by becoming infected again. If it is, I'm pretty much screwed as the other doctor said he couldn't do anything for me and I needed a specialist... specifically "my specialist" but I don't have one? I don't even know where to start with that. I definitely DON'T want to go back to the same hospital that mucked everything up last time. Just. No. I dunno. I just want it to stay infection-free for all of january, and then when im less stressed out I'll start looking into surgery #2, since its essentially my only option at this point. Again.

Oh and last night I fell down the stairs of the house I was house sitting for. Like, seriously?? I'm not used to stairs at all because I don't have them in/around my house now or growing up, and I tried to go down them in the dark. BIG MISTAKE. my foot caught the edge and my ankle turned into a wet noodle and i fell. Probably have some bruises but whatever. My ankle feels weird still. It doesn't specifically hurt but it just feels really off. I can tell I tweaked it on the stairs but I guess it doesn't seem too bad then I shouldn't complain. I just feel like an idiot. e_e

Otherwise I've just been playing a lot of video games. :I been on a Ratchet and Clank kick lately. Got the platinum trophies in the first two games, need the platinum in ratchet 3 and 4 (deadlocked) and then I'll have it for every single Ratchet game, since I already have them in all the ps3 titles. :x yay.

I feel like I might play through all the games in order though. Also I'm pretty excited for the movie to come out...even though its not for a while off yet. hopefully we'll see more trailers and stuff for it this year. yay.

I'm gonna work on filling out the 2013 game review thing I've posted the past couple years, but I'll post it in a new post since this one got a bit lengthy. lol

time to start saving money...!

all the ps4 news that came out today has me super excited for all the new games. gfjgjdklgl. they're also remaking a game i've always kind of loved because i remember watching my brother play it when I was too small to comprehend games... (plus it was a computer game so im not too great with those, especially then haha) It was on the amiga 500 we used to have and i just....

it's so weird lol. I mentioned it a little on twitter and its funny how excited I am to see more for this game? I wish I knew what studio was working on it. I want to see more. D:

I'm not sure if I'll be buying the remake or not, but I am definitely going to be keeping my eye on it. The game is Shadow of the Beast, if you're curious. It came out in 1989. It's really weird they're suddenly just doing a remake for this. o_o

I wanted to talk to someone all day about how excited I am about this but ... no one can relate ?? I guess the next time I see my brother I'll tell him about it if he hasn't heard but he usually brushes off any game related stuff I bring up. ha. Even though this IS Shadow of the Beast and he played the crap out of that game... I'd like to think he cares? I DON'T KNOW.

its also weird that they're remaking this game when they shut down studio liverpool last year (was it last year? i dont remember -_-) considering it used to be psygnosis.............the studio that MADE shadow of the beast. :| lol


it looks like there is more Dan Vs plush in my future. :x icon related

remember i did a dumb games meme for NEW YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!! last year? no? well i did. it was this.

i did it again for this year. I ALSO DILIGENTLY MARKED DOWN ALL MY GAMES FOR THE ~*~WHOLE YEAR~*~ for the most part.

notice the sudden decline in games (and activity on dreamwidth livejournal) and link it to the fact that i've been crazy addicted to outernauts. oh no im one of those people.

anyway here is the thing

under the cut!!!!!!!!!!! )

also someyear i will finish bioshock. that year was not this year. whoop whoop.

life update coming someday maybe or maybe not. my life is dumb and boring, but good things might be happening soonish. we see.

spent the weekend being sick!!!! isn't that cool!?


oh well. just now starting to get better, though I still feel as though my energy is on empty all the time, so I'm not doing much...

I started playing DXHR again because that game is just amazing. inFamous is definitely my ~*~ one true~*~ game love, as it were, but DXHR is a close second... very close. Even after playing it so much and then re-playing it again now its still super fun and I just love everything about it. lol.

uhhmmmmm. ive also been working a lot. lolollo my life is boring the end.

too early to judge

antoj: (well)
So turns out Fuse actually is Overstrike but reworked. Insomniac posted a really cool trailer about it last night (a trailer that was originally delayed because of legal issues (sad)). I thought it was awesome. It showed off some of the new weapons that are going to be in the game, and Insomniac's specialty is making crazy awesome weapons, so they look great.

And then a lot of people were being quite negative on it. I didn't understand it. They kept insisting the game was "dead" because they changed the cartoony look to be more realistic? That was it. Said the "humor" was gone and the game was dead all judged off the newer art style. The trailer didn't even have any character dialogue in it. How could they know if it had all the humor removed? OH WAIT. WE DON'T. Insomniac has already said the soul of the game is still there. But everyone is so quick to call it a generic FPS without even seeing anything else.

I started actually commenting to people on youtube about it... Doubt it made much of a difference but at least no one was jerks about it (i've heard people on youtube can be) ...and then somewhere in my replies Insomniac thanked me for being a fan. SO AT LEAST THERE'S THAT. Sigh.

In other news there is no other news. I've just been reading comics and playing games to pass the time. Oh, well, just kidding. There's a new cat in our house but I didn't get very good pictures of him yet, so I won't post any.

the end

resistance vita and spec ops

THIS ENTRY IS JUST TALKING ABOUT GAMES. everyone on my flist loves games, right!?1/1/1!??/1!

first is kind of a sad disappointing game. resistance never deserved this. :'c

second is an AMAZING OH MY GOD I LOVE IT game. spec ops was well worth the long wait.

also somewhat related. did anyone hear of the Watch Dogs ARG fail?

well. i was on that. i have like. 70 emails in my inbox from these guys. all because ubisoft accidentally my email. it was hilarious until some dbag started adverting his dumb tumbly. i like how ubisoft has said nothing about this, despite accidentallying like 1000 email addresses. NBD THIS HAPPENS DON'T SAY ANYTHING. can i have a free copy of watch dogs for getting all of these email spam including from some hipster dbag and his tumbly.

i would share caps of the email chain because some of the replies are hilarious (all the ones calling ubisoft failures, mostly) but gmail is being a jerkbag and i cant figure out how to cap an entire chain of like 70 gmails. if someone can tell me i will show you.

disneyland was cool. went with [ profile] sorcererhuntres, [ profile] kyogres and [ profile] okapifeathers and was fun. went on...mostly everything? I'm sure we missed things but I wouldn't know what they were because I havent been in like FOREVER.

i got a headache a few hours in and it never went away (and in fact i woke up with it still here too lolloolloo) but luckily im used to headaches all the time that... idk, it could be worse!!!!!!!


and everything i ate was unhealthy because i clearly take the best care of myself. srsly all i ate was fries and some cheese sticks. .....and 1 painkiller which did nothing for my headache :D

also none of the stupid pictures i took posted because too many people on the network. jerks but i doubt it was a real tragedy.

yes idk. headache.

also tomorrow i get to pick up a game ive been looking forward to for over a year!!!!! it's weird to finally realize im getting it now because it got delayed a few times since i'd started watching it BUT ITS REAL AND ITS COMING and i want it.

WELP. nothing inFamous related AT ALL came out of E3. I'm super disappointed, to say the least. They even name-dropped Cole in the start of the conference and it got me so super excited AND THEN......nothing. Not even a reveal for All-Stars. The new characters turned out to be Nathan Drake (from Uncharted ofc) and the Big Daddy from Bioshock. |:

No Overstrike. Nothing really for Vita except the new Assassin Creed game...

Quantic Dream did announce their new game which looks pretty interesting. I have somewhat of a personal problem with it that I won't get into here as I'm sure I'll get over it... but yeah. I'd like to know more about the plot. :I It looks impressive so far though.

However the one game that did catch my attention? WATCH DOGS. From the Ubisoft panel. When it started with the explanation trailer I was like "what am I watching. what is this. what" but it was super interesting...and it panned out from there and by the end I was trying to throw money at my TV.

trailers under this )

e3 is tomorrow!!!!!!

antoj: (stahl)
E3 IS TOMORROW. I'M SO EXCITED. You can't even comprehend. well maybe you can by the amount of times i've mentioned it.

but i'm posting this to make my list of HOPES AND DREAMS to come out of this. some of these are unlikely, some of them aren't... and some of them are just LOL IN YOUR DREAMS. but i can hope ok.

best coincidence ever

  • May. 30th, 2012 at 6:31 PM
antoj: (LOL)
today i was at work and bored and i started thinking about upcoming possible game announcement stuff.

then i thought, oh hey, insomniac games could have something, they have at least 3 teams for making games... wouldn't that be cool.

then like 2 minutes later i looked at my phone to find a txt from twitter that was insomniac announcing a new ratchet & clank game. and i was like FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

it was the best timing EVERRRRRRRRRRR.

im excited. also apparently there is a rumor sucker punch might have something for e3. i shouldn't get excited about rumors but if its from sucker punch i hope its infamous and if it is there will be so much fangirling. so much that it might be a danger to me and people around me. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

i think im going to install a count down widget for the sony panel on my phone.


all my tears for this series. also calzones

this entry is more video game ... stuff. a new game i got (and my thoughts on it atm) and those last two lbp keychains I needed for my collection. :x


so resistance: burning skies came out today... )

this post is going to be about video games

  • May. 26th, 2012 at 6:34 PM

a week or so ago (I FORGET WHEN :D:D:D) i played the demo for spec ops: the line. AND IT WAS REALLY NEAT. i like the environment, and despite it being in a city that's covered almost entirely with sand (and destroyed by sand storms lol) it's not /all brown/. Not that brown games bug me, but people bitch about it a lot. and i bet people will bitch about that game "being brown" anyway lollo

I'd been watching the preview images/videos for this game for a while now (over a year? i think?) but I hadn't planned on buying it right when it came out... but now thanks to that demo I've pre-ordered it off amazon. oh, and amazon is giving me free $10 for pre-ordering it from them. free amazon money and a game? sold.

I also pre-ordered the new Resistance vita game even though the studio behind it has that terrible "playstation move heroes" game on their roster oh god why BUT I'M TRYING TO GIVE THEM THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT. But Insomniac is done... so... :'c I'll have to deal with it.

BUT THIS BRINGS ME TO MY NEXT POINT. I feel like I have too many uncompleted games. TOO MANY. And now I have to decide which one to play next. I'm hoping I can finish two full games before Spec Ops comes out (end of June) i can probably do that. i could probs do more if i wasn't so intent on replaying games i've already played. killzone 3 is a cool guy though.

i have other uncompleted games, but out of the playstation 3 and the Ps vita games, which should I play next!? (also Resistance: Burning Skies isn't out yet, but will be on Tuesday, so i added it anyway)

Also E3 is next week!!! NEXT WEEK!!! NEXT. WEEK.

i don't even know what to expect, other than obvious things, but oh golly gee whiz... i am looking forward to the unknown. btw, if anything inFamous related is announced the internet might implode, and it might be my fault. just a fair warning.

also looking forward to anything from insomniac. hoping to see more of overstrike. :x The devs keep tweeting about playing the game SO I HOPE THEY WILL HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOW AT E3 NEXT WEEK. im too excited.

and i might be getting sick BUT IDC BCUZ VIDYA GAMES.

last night i was playing more jak x (SURPRISE SURPRISE) and it was super fun and then i played ONE MORE RACE before i was gonna go to bed.

finish race.

check something in email.

look at tv.


for those that don't know (aka: all of you) jak x has a lovely problem where it saves forever and never stops thus breaking your game file, and sometimes the ENTIRE MEMORY CARD.

i was seriously like >:C but not as upset as i would have been, as I was well aware of this issue before playing too much and I got a second memory card to back up my save. I STILL SOMEHOW MANAGED TO LOSE 10HRS OF GAMEPLAY THOUGH. but 60~ish hours of game play before it breaks? NOT BAD!? I just hope it doesn't become a reoccurring thing. :| also holy crap i did not realize i've played that game so much D:

but anyway it deleted my entire jak x save file and also the 1kish data off my memory card (SRSLY ITS JUST GONE IDEK) and im kind of miffed about that even tho i don't have that many ps2 games.

this is why they need to do jak x in HD so they can have this problem fixed (bcuz it was never fixed in any of the versions :D) and so i can trophies for it. i want to platinum this game ngl

i still love the game to pieces though and idk if i will stop even if it manages to nuke my entire memory card.

i gotta re-earn all my time trial scores now though :D lol

also wondering if i can remove corrupted data off my card. everyone says use the ps2 memory card browser to do it but there is no corrupted data block. im just missing the memory and there is no trace of the broken jak x file :| but whatever.........
