StarCraft 2 – Splitting It Up!

I can’t believe that Blizzard is splitting it up after all this time. I was annoyed about this news, I don’t mind the wait for StarCraft 2 since we all have such high expectations. They just released that you will only be able to play as a Terran for the first iteration, the Zerg and Protos campaigns will be released in the following year as an expansion pack, one pack for each species. So they will make us wait for 3 to 4 years to play the game as a whole! It is very annoying and those expansion packs are not going to be cheap!

Shelby Slot Car Race Track

This is probably the coolest game track set that I have ever seen. It brings back memories of adjusting the metal under the car, accusing my friend of cheating to win, trying to make sure my car doesn’t fly off at the corner. For $250 this amazing track is for a steal, and I know for a fact that a lot of guys would want this, even for nostalgia sake.

Gamestop Rant

This guy is a former employee of Gamestop and he goes off on their shady tactics to sell to customers. Its really a good insight into what they do to make money and why shouldn’t be buying from them.

My Amazon Shopping Cart

This is probably the oddest items that I have ever bought from Amazon. I have been piling up some books and odd items and one item is difficult to locate since I waited on it but still going to purchase it. Now I just have to wait for the release of some of these items.

Bumming

There just isn’t enough time in the day to do all that you want to do. I always have that feeling that I want to watch anime, go out, play videos or something that doesn’t involve my brain. I know of a few people who have quit jobs or taken long vacations just to bum at home for the longest time playing video games and watching movies, not just young guys but married men.

I keep looking at my XBox 360 in a strange way, thinking that there is so much to enjoy from it, but if I even switch it on, I won’t play for 30 to 40 minutes and get up, I will probably be there for at least 2 – 3 hours until I finish all the stages that I want. I haven’t had a chance to play for a while now, at least 3 months since work has gotten more hectic.

Then there is the PSP, I think the PSP is an excellent product and they have a lot of games. I remember getting the extended battery for it, and even now the last time I switched it on was at least 1 year and 6 months ago.

I think the perfect time off would be two to three months, bumming doing nothing but catching up with all forms of entertainment. Probably do some traveling to go to a few tracks here and there to ride my bikes.

Rihab Visit

So I went to Rihab on Friday since it was early in the day and I felt like checking out the new games out. It was windy as hell and as usual there was very little parking, so I fond a good parking spot on the side walk which didn’t block anyone. I went in and I remembered that the Kuwaiti Center closed down from 3baid‘s post, but I wanted to see if Abdulbasit really was gone.

When I walked to the first floor I saw the door open to the Kuwaiti Center, but when I walked in, I didn’t know anyone there. For years I was going there, but it seems things changed. I checked out a few games and bought two games, but they weren’t even giving deals to people. At that point I asked what happened to the people who were here before, he said one guy went to Canada and another guy retired, which didn’t make sense, but I played along bought my games and left.
