Some Delicious Sandwiches

I made some delicious sandwiches recently. Also, Lolo ate Thanksgiving tuna. Here, take a look.

They aren't necessarily my best sandwiches by any means, but they were pretty tasty.

Ham, Salami, melted Jarlsberg cheese, lettuce, tomato and mustard.

Breakfast sammy: Ham, egg, melted cheddar cheese and tomato.

Same as above, not yet cut.

Almost the same as the first sammich: Ham, melted Jarlsberg, lettuce, tomato and mustard, but with delicious fresh pickles on the side.

Yeah, I eat sandwiches in my bed.

Lolo enjoys her Thanksgiving Tuna.

There will be more sandwiches in my future, I'm sure of it.

Tank-Related Halo Shots

So I was on Halo today and this happened...prepare for excitement.

Had me a killin' spree, highlighted in this Double Kill executed by myself with the assistance of my friend with Scorpion (pictured below):

Two of 'em in that Warthog.

Another angle...

Double Kill!

Eventually they bogged me down, but it took 5 of 'em.

The end of my affair.

Next up was a pretty sweet Double Kill that I performed on a couple gents going for a spin in a Wraith:

They took a wrong turn somewhere...

Chief beats his way into that Wraith to achieve a Double Kill with 2 Beatdowns, sweeeeet.

The aftermath.

Ah, Halo is still just as fun as ever.

True Comedy

Here it is, the most comprehensive definition of the word "funny":

Fat? You have parasites!

This was an ad on my gmail...must be legit. Parasites make you fat, let it be known.

Fallout 3 Level Cap = Stupid

So, I was playing Fallout earlier and I reached level 20, assigned my various skill points, chose a perk, etc. I then proceeded to pick a lock in the dungeon I was in, and it gave me no experience points when it usually would have. To make sure something wasn't goin' wrong I got in a firefight and mowed down a few Super Mutants only to see that they didn't give me XP either. So, I'm all like what the fuck man, can level 20 really be the highest? Turns out it is, and that's totally weak man. While the game continues to be fun, it definitely loses a certain appeal. Whenever I'm in a fight now I'm thinking, hm, this is just a waste of ammo and I have more of an urge to run away than continue. So, in the words of the late Pierre Bourdieu, the level cap should be way more than 20 because that shit is weak man.

World of Miss Dynamite

So, a buddy of mine put together this video by having way too much free time and a World of Warcraft account. While I've made a solemn vow to myself to never own the game, as I feel it would be detrimental to my general well-being, the video is pretty funny stuff. So, here it is in all of its uber-nerdy glory:

World of Miss Dynamite

The Trifecta

Here, check out all the delicious (yeah, it's a noun too) that I got! I have basically everything I need to be a total recluse and I am very much ready to be just that. Take a look at this picture and you will witness the trifecta of greatness and various other strong adjectives that I don't have time to be writing down.

Gears of War 2, Fallout 3, Dead Space. Mmm....

Booya. All I need is right there. Friends are overrated.

Fallout 3 is Totally the Bomb...Diggity

Fallout 3 is truly as awesome as I had hoped it would be. First off, I have to ask if there has ever been a game where the player begins looking up at his father and various medical personnel after having been birthed?

Blastin' an enemy to pieces. I'd tell you what kinda enemy that is, er, was...but, can see why I can't.

The game features an amazing post-apocalyptic Washington DC (referred to as the Capital Wasteland) that is truly giant and filled with such a variety of quests and interesting tasks to complete that the game seems to have no real end in sight upon first glance...and perhaps even second, third, forth......
My first endeavors took me around 30 hours and after completing them I realized I had barely even touched the main storyline. Another thing is, each one was truly engrossing, even if it meant wandering across the wasteland for 5 minutes to reach each destination.

Typical wasteland sight, you could probably rent out that train-car for 600 a month in the city.

The combat system is an excellent mix of good old-fashioned FPS style combat with an interesting system in which the player can select different parts of the enemy to attack while time is essentially frozen. The system is called VATS and allows for the player to cripple the different parts of their enemy (head, arms, legs, etc.). Basically, time freezes, you zoom in on the enemy and it displays the percentage of hitting each particular body part. You then choose which sections you wish to attack and depending on how many Action Points you have, you proceed to attack however many times. Make sense? It's totally sweet, allowing for the player to utilize their FPS aiming skills like in any other comparable title while storing up Action Points for those all too important death-dealin' blows. The look and feel of the VATS system is similar to Fallout 2, making it nostalgic for those players who fell in love with that game years ago. Oh yeah, also, when you kill an enemy in VATS mode it has a totally sweet slow-mo sequence of you blasting them into little tiny pieces (pictured above). It truly never gets old. The game has all sorts of depth beyond the combat, featuring lock-picking, computer hacking, a vast array of speech decisions that affect the outcome of your various quests and just general interactions with people and a grandiose amount of items to play around with including foods, drinks, drugs, weapons, armor and the occasional fun extra like a bobblehead doll that enhances your abilities.
My description barely scratches the surface of what the game has to offer, so if you have a PC, an Xbox or a PS3 (even though the Xbox and PC versions are designed better, ha!), I highly recommend grabbin' yourself a copy. Assuming, that is, you have nothing to do for the next month or so.

VATS system in action on a particularly large enemy. This guy was a cupcake in the game actually. Hear that Super Mutant Behemoth? You taste delicious with chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles.

Anyway, I could go on and on about how incredible the game is and how everyone should get it and play it and make sweet love to it down by the fire, but I think I'd rather just keep playing it.
I'm sure you know how to surf the interwebs anyway, go find out your own info.

Also, your dad in the game is totally Liam Neeson, ha!
