Video Game Chat / Want to play me at WarCraft III?
« on: July 01, 2003, 10:26:19 AM »
Anyone want to play an online game with me today or sometime? Right now, I'd like to play something like:

WarCraft III
StarCraft
Microsoft Zone's Hearts
CashCrazed's Mario Bros.

Preferably WarCraft III. I just got back into it after a long hiatus and am still pretty dang bad and out of practice. Version 1.10 came out yesterday and is fairly big so if you don't have it updated, get on battle.net before hand to download it or show up early enough to get it before we play.

So any takers? Right down your prefered time to play. I'll check this periodically.

Pardon my French.

This is the Dance Dance Revolution thread. After dancing 20+ hours in the last three days, I figured I'd start one.

So, any dancers in the house? How good are you? What's your favorite mix/song?

General Chat / Does anyone here like Peanuts?(the snack food.)

I used to absolutely hate them. Then, for some reason, I ate some about two years ago and loved them! I love peanuts.

General Chat / I Dreamt About Two Of You
« on: June 11, 2003, 12:22:56 PM »
Yes, that's right. I'm officialy warped. Last night I had a dream and guess who showed up at the end? Chupperson Weird and Marionut#1. It's getting very hard to remember, but here's what I can recall:

The main dream somehow involved the Charlie's Angels chicks and me and I spent most of my time running away from this guy named Mark, who I think was modeled after a deranged distant relative I have named Mark. I think it was also Thanksgiving or something like that. Anyway, there was lots of action and eventually in the dream I discovered some villian that had been left on Earth by Captain Kirk. Apparently, in the process of escaping/trying to recapture it, I stumbled across this trailor house in the middle of something like a junkyard. Inside I met Chupperson Weird and Marionut#1 who went by those names, not their real ones. I guess they were living together and CW was kind of like a superhero with Marionut#1 as his sidekick-type dude. Oh yeah, the trailor was full of little stuffed things. I think most of them were little stuffed Mario dolls and other Nintendo characters. And maybe a few random blue/yellow bunny rabbits and those types of stuffed animals. I talked to them some and they helped me in some way. Grr, I wish I could remember more. Also, the end of the dream consisted of me "waking up" and getting interviewed by the local newspaper on my dream because my dreams are always so extravagant. I told them all about this dream. After this, I got on some sort of airplane that was driven by my gradeschool bus driver. I think I woke up after that.

My dreams for the last three or four years have always been extremely long and complicated and extravagant. I know they are in color and often have fully orchestrated soundtracks and titles and credits and stuff at the beginning of some.

Weird, eh?

Does anyone know if Japanese and PAL games have ratings? If so, what are they like? What's the system and what's the strictness?

Site Discussion / A Rather Interesting Signature Discovery
« on: May 16, 2003, 04:51:57 PM »
Has anyone else noticed that all the apostrophes in signatures are turned into quotation marks? Notice such signatures as Marionut#1, marioguy, and Lizard Dude.

Anyone have any theories?

Mario Chat / Prom Night Surprise
« on: March 17, 2003, 08:20:19 PM »
Here's something interesting:
Whilst at my girlfriend's house about an hour before Prom, I made an amazing discovery. She's a stinkin' platformer master. She's better than me at Donkey Kong Country 2 and *gasp* Super Mario Bros. and I consider myself pretty stinkin' good. Strange, I've known this person very well for about two years and never found this out until now. Oh well, now I like her all the better. Hehe.

Anyone here in Speech or Debate? I'm the captain of my school's debate team and am in Policy/Team Debate. My partner and I have taken first at two meets this year, but they were pretty small ones. At big meets, whenever we break into quarter finals we always happen to go against this guy named Bill and lose. Anyhow, anyone else participate in something like this? Also, is anyone in the NFL? If so, what is your point total and rank?

The following story is true. No names have been changed to protect the innocent. Except my name isn't Lizard Dude. But never mind that. On with the show.
  A long, long time ago in a school far, far away:
Christmas time. A time for presents. A time for relatives. A time for the HHS annual Talent Show. The first two were fine. But the talent show was in trouble. You see, for some reason not many people had signed up. With only six acts the executive producer didn't think that it would be worth the time or effort to produce.
  Enter me. Average dude on the street. No, the other street. Normally the talent show is fairly entertaining but I wouldn't really miss it if it were suddenly canceled. But this year, this year was different. I reeeeeeeeaaaaaly wanted to see the talent show this time. Not to go into it much, but my brother had a superb Michael Jackson act that needed to be exibited before the world.
  So...what to do? Well, the more acts the more chance of a non-canceled show so I walked in and signed myself up with no actual plan for an act. Soon after I realized that I needed a talent to be in the talent show - population: 6 + me. After thinking about what I could do for a bit, only three options seemed feasible.
   Option #1: Play bass guitar in some sort of band.
   Option #2: Play accordian and dress like a little Dutch boy and do funny polka/Scandanavian things.
   Option #3: Play something on piano.
  Number 1 would be pretty hard since the show was in two weeks and getting a bunch of people to adequetely learn some song is not my idea of a fun time. Choice 2 was possible, but I didn't have anything really cool to play on accordian so it would maybe go over good with the crowd but it wouldn't give me the warm fuzzy feeling I was looking for.
  Using deductive logic, we're left with option #3. Ah, piano. Facet of my life for eight years. So I have some skill at it by now. It looked like the best choice. Okay, that's settled, but what to play? Hmm, four minute time limit - can't do something classical and long. That would bore the crowd anyway. Hrm, nothing short and uninteresting would do either. I need something that will not neccessarily win over the judges but WILL neccessarily win over the crowd. (That's my performance mentality anyway...) Then, inspiration struck when my thoughts (as they often do) drifted to Mario. Ah Ha! A video game music show! That would be great!
  So the great preparations began. Actually, they weren't so great. I already knew many songs so I basically had to figure out which ones to play and how to fit them together and all that other transitional rot. After a little deliberation, I set the following program:
 1. The Legend of Zelda theme
 2. Super Mario Bros. Underworld theme
 3. Super Mario Bros. Underwater theme
 4. Super Mario Bros. Invincibility theme
 5. Super Mario Bros. 2 Overworld theme

  I tried to stick to halfway recognizable songs over songs that I may have liked more and didn't include the SMB Overworld theme because it wasn't in good shape and I didn't have enough time to whip it up. I like to play the exact notes and not just arrangements, which makes SMB Overworld pretty hard since it was written for three sine waves instead of human hands. Oh well. Blame Koji.
  So now the music was settled but further inspiration hit me. Why not dress in a Mario costume? That would be cool! One pair of $30 overalls, mom's red shirt, brown boots, red hat with circled "M", and giant black mustache later, I WAS Mario. Bring on the Goombas.

[Two weeks pass]

It's talent show day. Somehow, it's grown into a 17 act monstrosity. I'm act 13. Lucky. My brother's act 9. His act goes well. The crowd loves the crotch-grabbing/moonwalking action. Acts 10-12 pass. My turn.
  I run out from backstage, do a Super Mario jump, flash the Super Mario "V" sign, and head for the piano. Hmm, they didn't bring a piano bench out. Thinking quick, I wave-a my hands and yell out, "A-momma mia!" Crowd goes wild. The MC/Previously mentioned Executive Producer brings out a bench. I get down to business.
  Songs 1-2 go well. Crowd slightly quiet on Zelda but goes crazy for Underground, as expected. During the Underwater, however, things got a little crazy. Unbeknowenst to me, some kid whose nickname is apparently "Luigi" jumps onstage and starts doing a crazy, uh, mime(?) dance. That's right. Mime dance. I was slightly puzzled as to why the crowd starting yelling "Luigi!" but continued. He left in the middle of that same song. I finished the act successfully and left with a half-standing ovation.
  My brother didn't place but I, with my act created only to "save" the show that actually didn't end up needing saving, took second place and got $30. All in a good day's work for Mario.


Epilogue
  If anyone wants to see the talent show, I have it recorded on many different formats.
Here's a list: VHS, MPEG, photos, GIF, JPEG
Maybe if Deezer felt the need he'd put up a few pictures or video clip or something. (Hint: Deezer, post here if you want to) Anyway, just ask if you want something and I'll try to accomodate.

Here's something interesting to pass the time. See how fast you can beat Super Mario Bros. Start the timer when you first press a button (probably right) on 1-1. Stop time when you hit the axe (or kill Bowser, but it's slower that way) on 8-4.
My best time of about eight tries was 7'55".
I'm particularly interested in what kind of time the staff can get.

1. Anyone here played any MMORPGs? If so, which ones and what kind of characters do you have?

OR

2. Think Nintendo will ever make a MMORPG, possibly even (dare I say it) involving Mario?

Hmm, Deezer must be too busy with his Gamecube to think about us. I don't blame him, though :)   Also, is it just me or have updates (besides mailbag) extremely slowed down? Time was, actual new things got put up! News is great, but I want updates!
