In a flying saucer
You can take me there

me begin by saying Atlanta Clubs are soooo great! The Globe!^_^
As seen on the right are Bug, Kammy, Angel, and myself. the
place was full of high energy music. Mostly Jungle, some Drum
N Bass, Funky House, etc. Its gotten me back into my "Buy
More Music" mode so i did just that. so far ive got Gorillaz,
the new Garbage CD, Djay Alice, and should be getting Missing
Heart this week sometime.
Anime con coming up. MTAC
2½. Inubito and i are hitting this one. looks to
be a pretty small con, but fun since its got people like us
hosting the Dance and DDR Tournament. Reminds me of Sugoicon
sorta, which i liked!
the videogame front i think i should re-cap a bit before devulging
which nextgen system ive chosen.
years years back NintendoCD was due to come out. attaching
to the bottom of the supernes it looked to be a dream. 7thGuest
wow'd me at the time. And my friend Nathan even found a a
video screen of a possible Final Fantasy game on the system
with fully 3-d characters and great a battle sequence.but
the idea fell through and Sony went off on its own.
Nintendo64 came out. with its hideous looking "Cow-Troller"
controller i tried seeing the light in this. the systyem predicted
getting EarthBound2/Mother3, WonderProjectJ2, Robotech, and
MarioRPG2. not a single one of these ever happened. so far
the only TRUE n64 game i can hostly say i LOVED would be NeonGenesisEvangelion.
the game was not only fun but it fully took advantage of the
systems possibilities. other thanthat n64 had ZERO quality
games and the audio was disgusting. the first sign of censorship
was when i noticed in Pilotwings they had changed the girls
name Hooter. uh oh... thats Offensive! better make it a kiddy
game! how many times have i heard "who wants to play Goldeneye?!"
what other games you got? "Um... Perfect Dark!" i think ill
pass. im not much of a party gamer anyway and it seemed like
every game on that system ended up being 4 players.
Now Project Dolphin...Excuse me GameCube seems to be
going down the same path. sure nintendo has always made the
most fun games, but any RPGs? im sure theres going to be plenty
of censorship with this too. not only that but ive always
loved popping in music to my game systrems and listening to
them while i do other stuff. not this time! why minidisc?
to avoid people burning games? pa! you can get blank minidiscs
now im not all for X Box either. so far its gotten nothing
but rants. a very unimpressive show at E3 and no support from
any real of my favorite companies like Square, Konami, etc.
online support is great but just because the games are online
it doesnt make them good. The controller... i think ill skip
that part =P THO i have seen screens of anime games on the
system and JetSetRadioFuture alone might be the reason id
buy the system, and best of all; no region block. its about
time a system went universal!
Early prediction: Nintendo will eventually follow the route
of Sega and go for software, not hardware. GameBoyAdvance
will be their big big profit...and Pokemon. they make AMAZING
games but much like sega.. their systems just look flaky on
the market. X Box is good for developers., its got a few years
left on it and with the right 3rdparty support they just might
be even-steven competition.
PS2's harddrive and network broadband have my money right
now. the system is still going strong, heck; even PSOne is
still making games. you dont see 64 games popping up anymore
do you? im more for software and PS2 seems to be where all
the software i like is heading.
