Left 4 Dead…

Awesome is really the only way that I can describe this game. It is definitely the best game ever made. We got it Tuesday night and haven’t stopped playing it since. I swear to everyone right now, it will be the best $60 you have ever spend. It’s has so much to offer. Well first, you can choose between four different people: Bill (an old army guy that kicks total ass and sounds a little bit like Bartender from the Feast movies), Francis (a kick ass guy that oddly looks and sounds like Diamond Dallas Page), Louis (comes off as a wimpy business guy, but will save your ass more than anyone else), and last but definitely not least, Zoey (a pretty badass chick that we would be lost without and who also has a very canny eye for the sky). These four magnificent people make the game Left 4 Dead a truly awesome experience. We’ve been playing with one wired Microsoft xBox controller and one wired Joytech controller. Both of which have given us a great gaming experience. But, the Joytech controller is too loose when it comes to aiming and it doesn’t shoot very fast. So yesterday, we were discussing how awesome it would be to have a couple wireless controllers. Considering it would enhance our gaming experience and would stop our two kittens from chewing on the cords. So we thought, “What the hell.” Lets get a couple. So LaVaughn called and asked how much their wireless controllers were and they said that they were $44.92. So we hopped in the car and got to the store ASAP. Well I decided to just run in and grab them. So when I got back to the gaming section, I noticed that the controllers were $49.98 instead. Well I only had $105 on me, so I had to use $2.75 in quarters which sucked, but totally worth it. Well as soon as we got home we started playing again. And oh my god, it is so much better. It’s almost like you’re holding the actual gun. It’s so badass. I can’t believe we never got wireless controllers before. It’ll change your life, lol. Well I guess I better stop there. I could go on for hours. And, I didn’t even tell you about the special creatures. But I don’t really have the energy to type that much, maybe some other time. Well, since this is the best zombie game ever made, I’m gonna have to give it an 100/10. So please, for the love of god, go buy this game now. I swear, if you like horror, action, and just kicking ass with your friends, then this is so the game for you. Peace out, have fun, and kick some major zombie ass!

Do you want to be, Left 4 Dead?…

Well, if not, then I suggest you gather 3 of your closest buds and get ready for the gaming experience of your life. Well, I’m sure the vast majority of you have seen the preview for the new multiplayer co-operative survival horror game Left 4 Dead. Brought to you by the fine people of the Valve Corporation. And for those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, then you’re really missing out. You, and up to 3 of your friends have to help each other through zombie hell. And for those of you who don’t know us, we freak out over anything zombie. We even bought a movie call Automaton Transfusion just because it had a zombie dude on the cover. And let me just say, I really wish we had our $15 back. Word of advice, don’t judge a DVD b its cover. Anyway, the concept of the game is to help your friends through a bunch of scenarios until you reach the end alive. That’s pretty much all I know about it right now. I’ll probably be able to tell you more tomorrow, when we but it! Hopefully we get to but it anyway. Well I guess that’s about it. So, good luckto everyone that will be slaying zombies with the best of them tomorrow. Until next time…

Guitar Hero: World Tour…

Hey again. Last night we were discussing the song list for GH: World Tour and realized, that game would be so awesome to play. So, we figured we should go get it. Well, I called the store and asked how much the GH bundle was for 360. The lady said that it was $179. So we hopped in the car and went on our way. Well we got there and went straight to the electronics and started looking. But all we saw was a bundle for a PS3. So I decided to ask someone if they had it. Well I asked this lady and she said that she thought they did, but she wasn’t sure. So she asked one of the stock guys if they had one. He said yea, that they were in the back. So we fallowed him to the back door and waited. After about 5 minutes or so, the lady came back out and was like, “Sorry, we don’t have one. All we have is for PS3.” Well, we were totally bummed, but still determined to get it. So, we were both cool with the thought of driving to the next town over. Which by they way is Poplar Bluff. Well, about halfway there LaVaughn decided to call Hastings and ask if they had one. And I figured I could go ahead and call Game Stop. I got to talk to someone before she did and the guy informed me that they were out as well. So then LaVaughn asked them and they said they only had one. But by the time she was hanging up I was asking the fine people at Wal*Mart if they had one, and they did. So we finished our long but fun journey to retrieve our heavenly game. Well, we had to stop at the ever so faithful ATM again and retrieve a little more money. And while we were stopped there we heard some people yelling in the background. They sounded oddly like someone off of the Hills Have Eyes. So we hurried up and left. Well we got our game and some Taco Bell and headed home. When we got home we ran in and ate and then cleaned our gaming space up a little. We moved stuff around to give ourselves the ultimate gaming experience and very stage like appearance. And it was so worth it. The game rocks! It totally blew Rock Band out of the water. We got and awesome wireless guitar with a beautiful sunburst finish and a kick ass wireless drum set. The drums are so much cooler than Rock Band drums. I’m in awe over the two awesome symbols. And to top it off, it has a drumstick holder. Yea, badass. And the song list is amazing. I mean, it anything from Love Me Two Times to Crazy Train. I seriously can’t believe it. Now, the only thing you need to invest in is a mic stand. Believe me, it would be so much batter than trying to make your own, like us. We use these really long stick looking things. I think we have a picture of our homemade mic stand in our myspace gallery. Not too sure though. But anyway, if you like music games at all, you’ll love this one. I would give it a 9/10. So peace out and rock hard.

Smackdown! Vs. Raw 2009…

Well, last night, me and LaVaughn went to Poplar Bluff to go see a movie. And as most of you should know, Smackdown! Vs. Raw 2009 just came out Tuesday. And to most people, that means nothing, but to us… that’s a different story. Ever since THQ started developing Smackdown! Vs Raw, we’ve been frequent buyers. But anyway, back to where I started. We were driving along and got halfway to the theater and then LaVaughn was like, “We have to get Smackdown! Vs Raw!” and of coarse, I had no objection. So, LaVaughn called Hastings and asked if they had a copy. They said yes, but they only had 3. So we drove to the closest ATM and got a little extra money out and flew to Hastings. Well, when we got there we went to the gaming station and stood in front of the 360 section staring, trying ever so hard to find what we were looking for. And after we finally spotted it, we saw that they only had 2. So we found the nearest clerk guy and had him get it for us. Well, we ran back to the car and started ripping. After we looked at it for a while we started getting more and more anxious to play. And then LaVaughn was like, “So, do you wanna go to the movie, or do you just want to go get some food and go home?” Well I had no objections to just going home. So we grabbed some Wendy’s and headed back home. We decided to eat on the was so that we could get right to it as soon as we got there. And that’s just what we did. Well, the game is pretty awesome, like always. But the only downside, you can’t do the GM mode, and that blows. But what they lack in GM mode, they make up for in Wrestlers. Like for instance, the Hardy Boys. That makes it all better. Well, if you like wrestling, really buff guys, and divas, then you should get this game. You’ll love it. And not to mention, the graphics are way better this time around. I would give it a 7.5/10.

A huge update...

Well it’s been a while since I’ve updated our blog. But, now I have loads to blog about. So, sit back, relax, and prepare to be entertained.

First, I have to sing the praises of Saints Row 2. It’s one of the coolest games EVER! We bought it last week sometime, and it was worth every penny. I thought the first one was awesome, but this one really blew the lid off of awesome. You can pretty much customize everything. And you can even be a girl this time. Pretty badass. But I still like being a guy. Our dude is British and looks like Miroslav from Hostel 2. He’s awesome looking. Our girl is pretty badass too. She looks like Harley Mom from Feast. A little less boyish than Bike Queen from Feast 2. I love that you can buy loads of houses and drive pretty much anything you want. One of my faves is the mini bike. It’s so awesome. We got a bunch of cheats for it, so that helps. But word of advice, if you do the money cheat, make sure that it’s the very first cheat you put in. Cause you have to go through a whole bunch of stuff on your cell phone and the money cheat being first just makes it that much easier. You’ll understand when you try it. I would have to give Saints Row 2 a 9/10.

Ok, another update on our cat situation. We figured nine cats was too much for anyone, so we decided to find loving homes for some of them. LaVaughn’s mom (my aunt) kept the little gray boy and we kept the little white one, but you knew that already. But we found someone that wanted Veronica and the tree kittens and someone that wanted Lilly. So that leaves us with Zoe (our inside cat), Mischa (the little white kitten), October (our outside cat that came here 2 months go). But that’s not all, we got another cat too. Well, this cat kind of came to us really. See, we like to drive around and take pictures of places we lived. But in this case, it was a place that my Grandma and Grandpa lived in almost 20 years ago. Is an old abandoned house in Fredericktown, anyway. Well, I was walking around taking pictures and video and LaVaughn decided to go back to the road. But then I heard her yell my name. So I looked back and saw a little baby kitten jump on her shoulder. An of coarse, I ran over there as fast as I could. Well, we help and rubbed on her for a long time. And then LaVaughn was like, I can’t leave her.” and I was like, “Are you serious?”. So, LaVaughn handed her to me and I carried her over to the car. And luckily, we keep a pet taxi in the trunk of our car, so it was no trouble getting her home in the backseat of our car with Milla sitting next to her. Well, we went to the closest store and got her a can of cat food. She was so hungry. She almost ate the whole can. And she’s a little kitten. She smaller than the kittens that Veronica had. So she had to have been born after September 11th. After she ate, we were kind of freaking out about taking her home. We were scared she belonged to someone. So we scoured the are looking for a yard that had cats. But all that got us was a guy that thought we were stalking him. He even got a camera and took a picture of our car and I think he even wrote our license plate number down. It was good stuff. Well we didn’t want him calling the cops, so I pulled up next to his house and LaVaughn got out and asked if he owned a little yellow kitten. Well he was like, “No, that cat has been coming through my fence and I have to put it on the outside everyday.” and then he was like, “Do you have it?” and LaVaughn said yea, and then he was like, “Well, it’s yours then.”. So that’s when we decided to keep her. She is so cute and sweet. She’s pretty much all yellow except on her legs, neck, and stomach. And she has brown eyes with a little green around the outside. They’re what LaVaughn likes to call, candy eyes. We decided to name her Oona. Cause she looks like the fairy Oona from the movie Legend. It fits her so well.

Well Thursday, LaVaughn was like, “I wanna get my eyebrow pierced.”. So about 7:00 Thursday night, we went to Ink Addiction in Farmington. And luckily, no one was there. Just the guy that did the piercing and his girlfriend, at least I think she was his girlfriend. The whole way up there LaVaughn kept asking me if I wanted to get anything pierced and I kept saying no. Well, when we got there it was a different story. So, LaVaughn got her right eyebrow pierced and I got the other side of my lip pierced. But instead of the dude giving us a choice in size and shape, he just gave us both 14g loops. And that sucks considering I have a 16g loop. But at least I can put a smaller loop in if I want. Better than him putting an 18g. They’re both sore, mines worse, but at least we look badass now, lol. Not that we didn’t before or anything.

Like 2 days after, she got a nice little black eye.

You can see what it looks like from far off here. Pretty nice I thought.

My lip got so swollen this time. This first time it barely puffed up.
Here's mine from far off. It'll look better when I can change the ring.

Um, we got a bunch of new movies. We went to Hastings twice in the past week. The first time we got The Watcher with Keanu Reeves. It’s kind of like a cop drama type. Pretty good if you’re in the mood for something like that. I would give it a 7/10. And we also got The Crucible. It about the Salem witch trials. It has Daniel Day-Lewis and Winona Ryder. This is a really good movie. I would give it a 7.5/19. And the day we got Oona, we got Bobby. That was another really good movie. It has loads of people in it. Anyone from Demi Moore to Freddy Rodriguez to Shia LaBeouf. I would give it a 7.5/10. The second time we kind of went crazy. We really only went there to get one movie, A Walk In The Clouds. So when we got there, we went to the music section first to look at the body jewelry. Well, before we left that section we found a pot leaf air freshener for the car. It was only 3.00, so why not right. Well, we made our way to the DVD section to find the movie. We found it and then decided to go look at the horror section for a little bit… wrong! We should never be allowed anywhere near that section ever again. Well naturally, we went a little nuts. See, we though that DVDs in general was our weakness, but no. Zombie movies are our weakness. We found so many, like: Night of the Living Dead 3D, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Flight of the Living Dead, King of the Zombies/Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and for the non-zombie movies: Fast Times at Ridgemont High and The Blob. And by the time we were done looking around, we had put back the movie we came for and the air freshener, lol. It was good stuff. Then like the day after that, we got The Strangers. Didn’t really care for that one though. I would give it a 5/10.

Lets see, what else? Oh, we got these cute little black Phillips Mp3 players. They’re both 2g and so cute. They also store like hundreds of pictures and video. And can you believe they were only $50 each? I know, it was a steal. And we also got a pair of Phillips surround sound headphones. They were a little pricey, like $15 each. But they are so awesome. If you turn the volume all the way up on them, you can’t hear anything else. And last but ton least, we got a pink iHome Mp3 speaker dock. It’s really awesome. You can take it anywhere. We take it in the car mostly.

Well, I guess that concludes today’s session, lol. Until next time. Rock on!
