I'm actually thinking of making my journal friends-only. Even though people don't intend to start drama or anything, I have to be honest, I can't always tell what someone's intentions are over the internet and I'd just rather have people I know and trust read this thing so that I can actually TELL if they're actually offended or not. I don't mean to put you on the spot or anything, Casey, I'm just sayin'.
I was actually kinda wondering if anyone had a Nintendo DS Lite, and Animal Crossing.
Mainly because I was wondering if anyone wanted to do the whole wifi thing, when I get my plugin, which I'm thinking about ordering or something, since we never seem to have the cables in at work.
Speaking of work...
Today was the most aggravating day for video games. Well, for me, that is. Last Tuesday evening, my manager said to me, "Do you want a wii? We're getting 9 in either tomorrow or Thursday, and if you want one I'll call you." So I told him yes, and he said he'd call me. Well...Friday rolls around, and I still haven't gotten a phone call. I had to go in for my schedule anyway, so I took Jim along with me down to Gamestop to see what was up. We were walking down the parking lot to the store when we notice Curtis, a friend of my manager's and ex-employee walking out of the store with a Wii. I was a little irritated by this because I automatically knew that that Wii was set aside for him and I was not getting mine, regardless of being told I would be. We walk in, and Jim asks "Do you have any more Wiis left?" and my manager, the ever sparkling individual said "No! I had people camped out. I'm sick of answering that question." NICE customer service there, Kyle. Jim sulked into the back of the store because that's the only thing he wanted to get me for Christmas, and he was really pissed because he thought he'd be able to get the one they were setting aside for me. I didn't even say anything to him, I was so mad, but I'm thinking I may say something on Monday when I go in. Kyle said "I did have one, but I had to replace Curtis'." The only reason Curtis' Wii broke was because he was trying to look up porn on the internet from the wii, instead of going to his computer because he's too damned lazy, and messed around with some of the coding inside the machine. So then I'd say, tough luck, asswipe, you were trying to do something you weren't supposed to really be doing. >.<;; So no Wii for me, even though for weeks now they're like, "Oh next time we get them in, you'll get one!" I don't think I'm getting mine for Christmas...
But then again, there are many people out there who aren't. I'm not the only one. It's just the principle of the thing, telling someone you'll call them so they can buy their wii, and then just...NOT doing it. Well, I always knew my boss was a dick! Most Gamestop managers are.
Anyway, I'm not sure if anyone is interested in this or not...but I am a HUGE comic fan. I love X-Men (I have uncannyxmen.net listed as a favorite), Batman, Spiderman, and a bunch more (not really a Superman fan though). So Jim decided to get City of Heroes and City of Villains (I already had the Heroes software, just never really used it) to try. I was thinking ewww another MMO...but actually the game doesn't play like an MMO, it plays kinda more like a console game. Creating a character and their backstory has to be the best part of the game, but at least in Heroes you get to fly, run at super speed, have weird abilities and talk to other super heroes and join these things called "Super Teams" which are guilds, basically. In Villains it's all basically the same, except a different city to start off in and different costume changes and abilities and stuff. The best part? There is no hardcore "End Game" crap, no loot, and no money. So...the drama is pretty much nonexistant and I can just go around saving the day or killin' people if I felt like it and not be bothered by DKP or people calling other people sluts.
Here's what my super hero looks like:
She has wolverine's abilities, basically. Retractable claws and whatnot. She went missing for a year after fighting crime, and unfortunately emerged from solitary as a villain:
There's actually a long backstory about her (Forty Claws' Rebirth abilities includes the claws AND Ninjitsu...just where did she learn that?!), but I'll save that for a different post.
