Well, I've been playing one of the MAAAANY 'Parlor Parlor!' games that Telenet did for the Super Famicom. In this case 'Parlor Parlor! IV CR'. The fourth parlor in the game has a machine called 'Perfect Game' with a bowling theme. I found the perfect aim-point on the machine and the perfect machine in the parlor. (Machine #110) The kugi are 'tuned' optimally on that machine to bounce balls into the 'Start' pocket.


For some reason, after every jackpot on this machine (The symbols match up, you go into Fever Mode, and play all 16 rounds of the bonus game), you have to cash out....BUT...if the match you got was three 7's, then the background of the slot display turns from blue to pink after the bonus round, and you can continue playing (During this time all ball values are higher), and you can keep linking jackpots like that.


In my case, I linked 5 jackpots before I finally had to cash out. For a pretty good chunk of change.


13144 balls, worth a total of 32,800yen. (2.5yen/ball, rounded to the nearest 100yen), or about $280


Now, if only I was playing for real... I hear the state-regulated mandatory minimum odds have gone UP in the years since these games were made :P


Cashing out at the ball-counter. ii hibiki da... ^_^

...have far less truth to them than that of those who turned off my internet connection. I am now back online, under a new ISP. And yes, without the internet to piss away my time, I did nothing but work on the magazine.


Here's a preview


All the articles/reviews are written seperately then put together before publication, this is just the cover, the foreward, and the index (Unfinished index, I might add). Enjoy.


Oh, btw. ETA on the finished magazine is the weekend. Because of the internet thing, I've been unable to research and gather data, though I DID get the vid cap problem solved.

Okay. I'm having some serious technical problems with vidcap and screengrabs right now that are hindering my ability to add pictures to the reviews.


Please bear with me. I hope to use this first month as 'hands-on-training' to perfect this operation. Rest assured, you'll get your money's worth... That is, of course, ASSUMING SOMEONE OTHER THAN LONGLIVETA BUYS THE MAGAZINE, TOO!!!


So, anyway kids... Really the only viable option is to push it back, since there isn't really enough content done (Done-done. I have most of the reviews written, but no screengrabs or anything), to warrant a full issue that I'd feel okay releasing.


After I get all the kinks worked out, you have my solemn promise that if there are any delays in the future....I have to hand out exclusive Gaijin Samurai content like candy on Halloween. :P


At this time, I would like to mention an idiomatic phrase I learned. 急がば回れ (いそがばまわれ, or 'isogabamaware'.) It means 'Less haste, more speed.' I don't want to do this half-assed, so I will do my best to fix the problem in the time I have. Failing that, I will endeavor to get the issue out, in full, as soon as possible.

While I have the chance, I'd just like to note, for those who don't hang out in the channel, where these two troublemakers were.


You`re_Kidding_Right went to Fort Lewis, in Washington state to further his training as a living weapon in Uncle Sam's Army. His exploits will be made available as he relays them to me.


Pineycreek was in Osaka, Japan as part of Osaka-U's student exchange program...where he ran down unsuspecting elderly folks on his bicycle, and was stalked by crazed housewives. Way to go, Piney! :)) His exploits, as well as his ongoing adventures in being E-stalked by Japanese housewives, are available at his website.

This idiot woman declared jihad on the city transit ads because her kids are scared shitless of an ad for Prince of Persia... What in the NAME OF FUCK? What kind of life is she subjecting them to AT HOME? (from the article) "It is sending the wrong message to kids," said Clairmont. "I don't even let my kids have a butter knife."


Okay lady, you're well within your rights raising a couple of future sidewalk grease-spots, but don't subject other people to your narrow-mindedness. You're a step above the dumbfuck parents whose 3-year old choked to death on a piece of popcorn BECAUSE THEY TOOK HIM TO SEE ALIEN VERSUS PREDATOR. Fuck you. Stupid people shouldn't breed.


And for you idiot people who don't see the connection....you don't think it's possible that the kid was startled and inhaled the popcorn? (Alternately, he could have decided to off himself because his parents took him to see such a crap movie.)


What kind of moron parents take a 3-year old to watch a movie like AvP? That other idiot's kids are scared shitless by a POSTER... The human race is doomed. Look at our future. They'd probably fall over dead in a thunderstorm.

Well, YKR returned yesterday morning. (I guess I won that bet about his brother not getting him the address until he was HOME :roll:) But then, later that evening...something unexpected happened; Pineycreek showed up...and his host originated on THIS continent! :D


So, all the troublemakers are back home, and back in the channel. I'm overwhelmed with joy... Now if only someone OTHER THAN LLTA would buy my damned magazine. :|

Well kids, Umbra is at it again. He posted a new definition for 'Baka-chan', after his previous one was deleted for being 'fucking stupid'. This one is even dumber. Apparently he thinks Vermont is in the midwest.


But I fixed him good. Observe.


So, for great justice, give my definition for Umbra, and Baka-chan a thumbs up, and give his definition for Baka-chan a thumbs down, and recommend it for deletion.

In other news, I'm working on an animated Panda Z parody... (Given the nature of the show, isn't that redundant?:>>)


I've been modeling Taron, and so far, this is what I have. (Arms are next, duh)

I made a logo for the magazine to start out with. I want to keep this as the GPMoD logo, but change the magazine logo down the line. For now, I like it for it's rough look, a look I want to carry over through the rest of the first issue.

Well, a couple days ago, I got a PM from YKR's bro, asking me for my mailing address, to give to YKR so he can send me a letter... Ofcourse, YKR asked him to do this about a week prior. Oops. Judging from the boy's usual response time, YKR will get my address when he's BACK HOME. :roll:

Summary of Gaijin Samurai story arc 1
 
  

08/05/04 @ 06:32:24 pm, Categories: Uncategorized, 109 words, 491 views  

Gaijin Samurai is the story of a disillusioned young man, who fled his life in post-crash New England, to start a new life in Japan as a hired gun.


Along the way, he becomes involved with a girl, depressed by her restrictive and boringly typical life.


Then, he pisses off the wrong people. Namely, the Arasaka corporation.


And this young man, who has now found something to live for, must wade chest-deep into the bloodiest conflict the twenty-first century has known, to ensure the safety of the woman he loves.


If I were to fill this in with more detail, it would be spoiler-ridden. So just deal with it.

....Why the fuck even open your mouth?


Okay kids. I get my fair share of shit on IRC, all of it deserved... But could you ATLEAST try to be CREATIVE? All your insults are utterly moronic. Really. There's three major categories:


Category 1: Uhm...no shit.

(smacktard) Bakachan ur an asshole


Good job, shitfuck. Your insults would probably have a bit more impact if...perhaps.... THEY WEREN'T SOMETHING I FREELY ADMIT TO.


Category 2: Children shouldn't be allowed on the internet.

(smacktard) Baka-Chan: X ur mom
alternately

(smacktard) Baka-Chan: ur mom X


Don't forget the other gradeschool nonsense.


(Shitfuck) baka ur fat
(jackhole) baka ur a fag

(dumbcunt) baka fuckshit ass holebitch!


Yeah... Okay... Could you come back and try again when you grow some pubes, son? I say this, not because I don't think young people can be mature, but because you're so fucking stupid, that I honestly have to imagine that pubic hair has more brains than you. (See, kids? Now that's how you insult someone.)


Category 3: Miscellaneous moronicism.

Misspelling my nick...
(fuckwit) BakaChan

(fuckwit) Baka-chun
(fuckwit) Baka-cock - JinKazama likes this one, and banned me when I pointed out that he was being a model fuckwit.

(fuckwit) Baka-shit
(fuckwit) Baku

(fuckwit) Bakaflan


THIS IS IN NO WAY INSULTING. I DON'T EVEN NOTICE IT!


Sad attempts at 'bringing the nihongo'
(kekekela) ror! baka mean stupid! keke! u stupid!

(iworkforpioneer) little stupid?


Thank you for demonstrating that you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about. Good day.


Saying shit that makes no sense whatsoever.
(yuku) bakachan u r on ur face@#$&*@#^%@#SHIT ASS!!

(polack) baka ur a hippocrit


That last one was actually a segue into my last two points.
1. DON'T USE WORDS YOU CAN'T SPELL.

2. KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT (That second one is commonly heard in Anime-Xtreme when I complain about 'goddamn anime pirating children' because these morons are too stupid to comprehend that someone might not be there to DL.)


ALL YOU DO IS MAKE YOURSELF LOOK STUPID. GOOD JOB, YOU'RE SAVING ME THE EFFORT!


So, back to the words of Lewis Black.... "Why the fuck even open your mouth?"


Now, a catchall for AX:

Save it. Okay? Chances are, I've heard it, and it wasn't clever the first time. You will never be able to win against me, nor will you ever gain more than fleeting popularity trying to flame me... You don't have the size for it, son. And the more you try, the more the people watching realize that you're just a dumbass, and eventhough they HATE me, they laugh at your dumb ass getting burned alive for their entertainment. (And you're pissing ME off by not even being a decent match for me.) Which brings me to my next point.... I AM ONLY IN AX TO ENTERTAIN MYSELF WHILE I'M WORKING AT MY COMPUTER.


YOU ARE NOTHING MORE THAN ANOTHER CARDBOARD-CUTOUT, BARELY-SENTIENT, SEMI-HUMAN. YOU ARE MEDIOCRE. AND I LAUGH AT YOU.


I AM A MIGRATORY HUNTER, AND STUPID PEOPLE ARE MY PREY. GET ME BANNED. I CAN ALWAYS USE THE TEMPORARY CHANGE OF VENUE. YES. TEMPORARY. 'CAUSE YOU'LL NEVER GET ME PERMBANNED FROM A CHANNEL UNLESS YOU RUN IT.


That is all.


We ask Baka-chan, guardian of intelligence, bane of the antismart, Baka of the order of the 99th....Give your blessing unto us, that we may walk freely upon the Earth, unmolested by those that would inflict stupidity upon us. May you protect us, and deliver us from stupidity. Amen.

- from the 'Church of Baka-chan' project's v.0004 of the Gospel of Baka-chan.



Oh look, the kids have come up with a new way to try to piss me off... Some little kid named seaquake decided to start shit in a channel I've NEVER EVEN BEEN TO, #anime-heaven. Observe:

[03:43:42] (seaquake) /msg baka-chan xdcc send #1" for [AH]_Naruto_94_v2_[E1F80767].avi




Now, when JinKazama saw fit to get people to PM me with 'lol' I didn't care....but I fucking HATE Naruto. HAAAATE it. seaquake was /kill'd from Rizon moments later. (As well as getting kickbanned from the channel). Come up with a better idea next time, shitfuck. Permalink
I would be remiss if I didn't.....

Okay, being the Giant Pachinko Machine of Doom, I'm obligated to say something about... ;D

88| OMFG-DOOM-MOTHERFUCKING-THREE-DESU!!!
Okay... This is the greatest game ever made.... But more importantly, the engine is the greatest I've ever seen. And whoever doesn't buy it IS A BAD PERSON! |-|

The UI system is one of the least appreciated, and most important features. It MAKES the game. Without the UI system, all your complicated environmental interaction would be carried out through levers, switches, and buttons.... Like Half Life.

I'd go into more detail.... But screw y'all. I'm going back to fragging stuff.

btw, on Ultra High.... My Athy 2700(w/1.5gb)/Radeon 9700 Pro combo gets 30-60fps at 1024x768x32bpp@120hz And it looks fucking awesome.


-Update 1-

Some things you should keep in mind:
  • SURROUND SOUND IS A MUST. Half of the game's impact is aural.
  • You may, possibly, want to make sure you don't have to use the bathroom, when playing... (Just trust me on this, okay?)
  • ALWAYS READ EMAILS AND LISTEN TO LOGS when you get a new PDA. This shit is important. You will figure out the locations of many many things, as well as learn combinations/codes to cabinets/doors. This stuff will save your life.
  • If you are squeamish, easily frightened, or just can't watch horror movies or play survival horror games...DO NOT BUY THIS GAME... YOU WILL HAVE SOME KIND OF ATTACK, AND DIE. THEN, YOUR FAMILY WILL WAGE JIHAD ON THE GAMING INDUSTRY.

The sound in this game is amazing, and is used quite effectively to skullfuck the hell out of you.

YOU WILL HAVE NIGHTMARES. YOU WILL SLEEP WITH THE LIGHTS ON, FOR FEAR OF THE INANIMATE OBJECTS THAT POPULATE YOUR DOMICILE COMING ALIVE AND EATING YOUR SOUL.

You have been warned.

More to follow later.
