After trying for a month and a half at getting Elebits at Best Buy without even a little luck, I had finally given up on getting it and had resigned myself to getting Mario Party 8 next month with my gift cards instead. However, I was looking for something to do with my daughter today and we thought we would go to Best Buy and pick out a movie to buy and watch tonight. Well sure enough they finally had Elebits in, 3 copies to be exact. So since I had wanted it and I had literally just decided not to get it today, I decided to get it. Why not. It is still a fairly innovative game and I want to reward Konami for an innovative new IP instead of the same ol’ same ol’ all the time which we seem to be getting in the games industry.
This week I seemed to turn a corner in my medication, and it isn’t a good one. I have yet to go to class this week is the simple way to say that things are going wrong… the more complicated part of it is that I don’t understand why I haven’t gone to class this week. Read more “In trouble”
I’ve noticed more and more of late something rather unique I think in American culture that has been going on the last 5-6 years. That is the blending of the Japanese and the American Cultures. Now I think this is interesting because I think it is really one of the first times that the east and the west has ever decided to blend in some way.
I thought it might be fun to post my weekly responses for my Virtual World Studies class. I think they will mostly take the form of my current journeys in World of Warcraft, but may also take the form of what responses on what we are reading and thoughts in class. Without further adieus….

I’ve previously talked about movie theaters and what not and how there is something lost in them these days. Well today, I went for a walk in one of the local malls called Hilldale Mall. The Hilldale has always been an interesting town in Madison. It is one of four indoor malls in town, and the most downtown mall in the city.1 In addition to this downtownness, the mall has always had ritzier stores than the other malls, being the only place in town that you can find a Macy’s.2 Yet the mall has always been rather rundown with a cracked and decrepid facade and parking lot.
After long last, I finally got into a new zone in EoF. The jump between Steamfont and Lesser Faydark is huge, you can’t really go straight from one to the other, you really need to stop over in Feerrott, Everfrost, Lavastorm, and Sinking Sands first. There is a dungeun instance that you could go to instead named Klak’anon, it seems to be the main bridge. However, it is rather dull and uninteresting and has few quests and is more group oriented. So if you want to do quests, gain AA, and solo, you are bessed served in one of the others. Read more “EQ2: Lesser Faydark”
