Hello again, internet.

"Life. Don't talk to me about life."

Right now, life is still boring as shit, but I'm okay with that, as stuff is happening. Oh, yes. I shall proceed to bore you with exactly what is happening.


- Nintendo dropped the price of the 3DS. They also are giving 20 free games to those who bought one before the price drop. I bought one before the price drop, and am excited for the first 10 games, to be released on Sept. 1st.

- My sister is moving to a different state. Now, ordinarily, I would be ecstatic about this, but I was hoping to move there myself early next year.

- My dad and I are helping her move, by taking her stuff to her a few days after she leaves. After we drop off her stuff, we are taking a short vacation.

- My friendships with co-workers is attempting to break into friendships outside of work, but that's difficult, as our work schedules clash, not allowing us to have free time at the same time, aside from night time, and I seem to be the only night person.

- My creative block has lifted slightly, and I'm starting to have ideas again. None of these are stories, but they're good ideas, and I need to play with them, so I don't lose them, and maybe smash that block entirely.


And that's it. Goodnight, internet.

Wii U? What the flying Zark? ... But it still looks crazy fun.

Zelda's 25th anniversary is this year. Looks like Nintendo's gonna celebrate it even less than Mario's 25th last year.

I suck at Excitebike. 3D or no, it's a challenging game, despite how simple it is. I will remedy this as soon as possible.

I need to sleep earlier than 3:30AM.

I need a vacation. I'm starting to get emotions that do not do good things to me.

I bought a 3DS today. I think this is the first gaming system I've successfully bought on launch day.

I went in to the Walmart where I work, only to be told that nobody could find them, and left with the impression that the store didn't even get a shipment of them.

I went to work the next morning, in a fouler mood than normal despite an extra hour of sleep, and did my work as usual. Didn't have a bad day at all, really, just had a foul mood from my experience the day before and the fact that I really fucking hate mornings.

I went to my lunch break, intending to tear down a sign in Electronics department reading "NINTENDO 3DS! COMING MARCH 27TH!!!" that was printed off in the back room by someone who didn't even use a word processor to make the sign, when I found a buddy of mine who was just looking at the games. I told him the story of what happened the previous night, and pointed to an empty spot on the shelf where the 3DS was suppo-OH SHIT! There's like 10 of each color here!

I bought one right that second.

I kinda want to go back tonight and wave the thing in the faces of those idiots I interacted with last night.

So, not really good or bad news, but I have had a downright strange day today.

I went into work, and was having a pretty lousy time of it, being a busier than usual Saturday, when 30 or so teenagers came walking from the parking lot, each pushing one or two carts. Basically, I went from an empty cart bay to a full one in about 20 minutes (as opposed to the usual hour and a half.) It was pretty awesome.

A customer came up to me and got quite annoyed because there was a cart too close to her door, so she couldn't get in her car. I rolled my eyes and pushed the cart away with one finger, and she called me a jackass. I was pleased, because I hadn't had a customer that fucking dumb and obnoxious in a long time. I wanted to mess with her, but didn't have the time to do so.

When I went inside to take my lunch break, I was told by one of the supervisors that I needed to have the parking lot COMPLETELY cleared before I went home. I told her that there was no way possible with just me ALONE out there (again.) She said do it, or the upper management will ride my ass about it, then ran off before I could tell her where to go and how to get there. I went directly to the highest manager in the store at the time, told her that the supervisors were harassing me about working beyond human capability, and she was on the radio about getting someone out there (because there would be nobody, if I was on lunch break) before I was even out the door to the office.

First off, let me say that I have the bottom-of-the-barrel job of pushing carts at Wal-mart.

Well, there are supposed to be eight cart-pushers, and as of next Sunday (the 13th) we're down to four and a fourth. (The 1/4th is one guy who's probably legally retarded, and doesn't do any actual work at all.) Now, four people might be able to cover one day, but not all seven. We are supposed to have at least two days off a week, and if you work out the math, that means three people each day (7AM to 11PM,) with only two on one of the days. That makes it incredibly difficult on us.

Anyway, Management only scheduled two people today, one to come in at 1PM, and me at 4PM. The guy at 1PM called in sick, so I was the only person out there ALL FUCKING DAY. I asked my boss a few times if I could get some help, and I did, for about an hour, but otherwise, they couldn't spare anyone, because the cashiers are short-staffed, too.

Long story short, our management staff are a bunch of complete dumbasses.

An open letter

Dear major software companies,

Thanks for bringing the Mac back into the gaming world. Valve making Steam for Mac (and then temporarily releasing Portal for free, as a bonus for it's launch) was a huge step in breaking the Mac/PC wall.

So, what I'm asking is, could you guys make some Mac exclusive games again? Or even just a limited Mac release of a highly anticipated game prior to the PC release?

What I'm saying is, PC users nowadays haven't really felt the frustration of seeing the most popular game slip through their hands merely because they can't afford the system that the game is exclusive to.

Why is the Mac version of Fable still $50, when Fable 3 is out? Why are there "classic" games on Steam that were originally Mac games, but are still PC exclusives to Steam? (A good example of this is Lucasarts' Dark Forces/Jedi Knight series, when one of Mac Steam's launch titles was the Lucasarts Adventure Game Bundle.)


Many regards,
- Shade

I hate December. Mostly, it's just people, all being "Christmas-spirited." Bollocks to that. People need to get their shit done and not crowd Walmart for the entire last week prior to the 25th.

Also it's cold, but here in Arizona, I realize that I've handled colder than this. So, I do think I might actually bitch less about the cold. It also helps that I have this "work suit" that I've ended up sweating in after walking through 40 degree (F) weather. It takes a LOT for me to sweat. Even then, it's only my shoulders that sweat.

Well, that's all that's on my mind right now. I lead a pretty dull life.
