I start school Monday and my new computer science teacher(whom I still haven’t even met) sent us 3 emails already containing work that will have to be due by our 2nd class meeting. Holy shit what a kill joy, guy has us for 3 months, cant he wait a few more days before he starts dumping us with endless piles of homework? Not to mention students are currently taking finals for winter classes, I highly doubt any of us want homework before class has even begun. 😦 Well, so long vacation, it was good while it lasted.
Holy shit, by some twist of fate not only did I pass my finals, but I was also able to pass my classes as well. Got a C in both classes, talk about cutting it close. Well, With that out of the way I won’t have to worry about school till the end of the month since I’ll be on break till then. Gotta have all my fun now that way I don’t have a repeat of the Fall semester during Spring.
Every time I have school work due on a certain date I do everything but that school work. For example, I have a coding assignment that was due today but due to me (and a bunch of other students in the class) not understanding how to do the freaking code I didn’t get it done, didn’t help that I waited till the last minute to do it. So instead of trying to get it done as soon as possible(ideally tomorrow since its -10% every day its late) I’m here surfing the web & catching up on thesurvivor2299 website(please be real). Even happens with exams as well, I know I should study but I never do, instead I watch tv or some other pointless shit that can wait till I finished my test, which leads to me failing the test. Cause of this I’m having an awful first semester at Brooklyn College, and I’m ashamed of it as well, its not like I’m a full time worker, hell, I’m only taking two classes this semester and I’m STILL failing. I know I can do better, in my other college I was a pretty good student, above average, and I took like 5-6 classes every semester. I’m not expecting a 4 year school to be the same as a 2 year but for god’s sake I shouldn’t be doing this bad. Really gotta get my shit together, especially now since I’m paying for school.
Truthfully nothing interesting has been going on in my life lately(social wise), shocking, I know. BUT, my gaming life has been pretty sweet. I’ve finally finish The Witcher 2, my first playthrough was on Iorveth’s side. Holy shit, the first two acts in the game were LOOOOOOONG. I didn’t even know the game was split up in 3 acts until on my 12th hour of gameplay I finished the first act. All I thought to myself was “da fuck!? that was all one act, how many freaking acts are in the game!?” Not that I dislike long games, it’s just that it got me off guard.I’ll go back soon for another playthrough on Roche’s side. This time I’ll play on normal. Yea, that’s right. I played on easy; game is super hard. 😛
Also, I’ve pre-ordered GTA5 on psn. Normally I’m highly against pre-ordering/purchasing retail games on psn because they’re marked full price, but I made an exception this ONE time because both my brother and I would like to play GTA Online together. Red Dead Redemption was my favorite multiplayer game this gen, so if GTA is even half as good as that I’d be more than happy, though I’m sure it’ll be way better.
Um, let’s see… I also bought Spelunky today on PSN. game is hard as balls. Still haven’t gotten past 1-3. Its is really fun though; and I’m very shocked but I think I actually like how the game looks more on the Vita than I do on the PS3. I know, weird, right?
AAAAANNNNNND lastly, tonight is my final day of Summer. Tomorrow I have to wake up early for my first day of school. Super disappointed when I found out I started school so early. Every school I’ve ever been to has always started on Sept. 9, Y U START SO EARLY, BROOKLYN COLLEGE!? So yea, I’ll make a new post tomorrow or something on how my first day back goes. By the way, this is a new school, so I got to make friends all over again, what a drag. >_>
Yea!! My hard drive actually arrived nearly 5 days earlier than expected! Lucky for me, it was shipped from NY so I ended up getting it the same day it was shipped(yesterday). I’ve been setting up all my files up again. I was planning on playing The Witcher 2 once I got my hard drive but I think I’ll just continue focusing on Persona 4 Golden, I’m having way too much fun with it. Then after that I’ll head on to Xcom Enemy Unkown which I got from Playstation Plus.
I got to try out Sonic All Star Racing Transformed. Luckily the free to play weekend is still going on. It’s pretty fun, I would’ve bought it would stop being a jerk and work with x360ce, it won’t even open up when I put the files in the folder. 😦 I mean I can play it but its annoying since I cant pause the races unless I go back to my keyboard plus the menu controls are all wonky. Needless to say, I’ll pick it up once it gets cheaper(I’m a cheap bastard).
Oh yea, I’ve also saw Man of Steel a day or two ago, and its was… alright I guess. Not a fan of Super Man so my expectations were extremely low. Overall I guess I’d give it a 7/10. It’s the only time Super Man has ever looked even a bit interesting to me, but even then its not like the movie changed my opinion about him. Until next time, tomorrow I’m heading over to my college so my advisor can help me get my stuff in order for Brooklyn College(yea, they FINALLY sent me a letter, yay!)
I beat Max Payne 3 today, that’s another game off the backlog! Making some progress, brah! Up next is Alan Wake’s American Nightmare. I think I might also play Mario Galaxy 2 while I’m playing the other 3(which you can see on the “What I’m Playing” page.) I sold my Wii ages ago so I play my Wii games on Dolphin, which is a Wii/Gamecube emulator for those who don’t know. It has its pros and cons. Some games have some glitches, for example, both Mario Galaxy games have audio glitches where the background music stops playing after a while and that can be a problem after boss fights as the game will freeze, that sucks cause the little music I’ve heard from the game is actually pretty cool. On the other hand though, you can play games in sweet, sweet HD. Let me just say that there’s a HUGE difference once the game is in HD. I recommend giving the emulator a shot if your PC can handle it. You can even use a Wii mote with the emulator too if you want, I prefer using my MLG PS3 controller though.
Oh yeah, I got some good news about my problem with school if anyone’s interested. I fixed the problem with the class they were saying I was missing over the phone so I was able to save myself the long ride home, and also I got an email from Hunter College telling me I got in. It’s not the school I want but if I don’t hear anything from Brooklyn College within the next two weeks I’m just going to settle with Hunter. I want to stop worrying about school as soon as possible so I can start enjoying my Summer vacation and also get an idea of what my schedule will be like in the Fall so I can get a job that’ll play nice with my schedule.
Well, until tomorrow my friends! I’m going to play a bit of Fallout: New Vegas, even though it’s a glitch fest it’s one of my favorite games, it’s that good. Speaking of which, I decided I’m going to start my best and worst games of the generation sometime this week, but I’ll only be doing the negative side first, I want to play The Last of Us and see if I should put it on my list as best something on my list since all I hear is praise for the game. So make sure to look out for that! Night, everyone; it’s gonna be 12am here in NYC and I’m getting sleepy @_@.
With this generation almost coming to an end I want to make some best and worst of the generation awards. I don’t know if I should wait till September though since that’ll be the month where the last few games I’ll be purchasing this generation are released. Besides, I haven’t gotten around to buying The Last of Us, I hear it’s a nearly flawless game. Then again, I’d rather make the list while the games I’d pick are still fresh in my mind. Maybe I’ll just start by posting the worse games of the generations, I highly doubt any games that I want later on this month will top how bad the games on my list are. Oh yea, tomorrow I’m going to go to school to get my whole graduation shit checked out, hopefully it all goes well; wish me luck.
By the way, the list will contain the games from Wii, DS, PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, PC(games that have come out in like the last 6 years or so). For some reason my friends don’t consider the PSP and DS in the same generation as the WiiPS360, but I do. So yea, till tomorrow or whenever I feel like doing it 😛
