Megaman Legends 3

If you know who that little guy to the left is, then it's obvious you've played Megaman Legends 1 or 2. Is that a good thing? Well I certainly think it is. Especially since... YEARS, after Megaman legends 2 came out, Capcom is FINALLY developing MEGAMAN LEGENDS 3!

If you are like me and have a strong sense of nostalgia that overrides your common sense, then the announcement for megaman legends 3 got you excited too... especially if you ever played either of  the first two games.  Infact I even downloaded the original megaman legends( the pc port of it) just to kinda relive my childhood, and the game is every bit as fun, funny, and occasionally scary as I remember it was. The controls took a bit of getting used to again after not playing it for over 8 years, but the gameplay still held up beautifully, even if it has a few odd graphical glitches*mainly sprite objects like lamps and trees* have these weird fuzzy edges... but the game is a direct port of the PSone original with essentially no changes whatsoever.

As for megaman legends 3 however.... it will be for the 3Ds. It saddens me a bit as I do not own a 3DS,( and the prototype version is already available in the 3DS eshop ) HOWEVER! Everything i have seen for the game looks fantastic.... Even if i don't particularly like the new character barret's looks... oh well.. for full details on EVERYTHIGN megaman legends 3 head to the Devroom blog at Capcom Unity.

Well.... I ran out of stuff to say.... so ima publish this and gtfo for a bit..... later everyone.... expect another post from me soon as i find more shit to prattle on aboutmega

Forced religion and it's effects on society. (why the westboro baptist church is so angry?)

Does that picture to the left piss you off? Well it damn well should. Why? Think about it this way: The basis of religion is to bring about a sort of peaceful unification through shared belief. HOWEVER all religion seems to do is breed hate among everyone on the planet. Which is where I come in.

I was baptized as a child. I really had no say in the matter. Not that I distrust or hate my parents for it. I genuinely thank them for the experience. My reasoning is, I tried it for a few years of my life, but ultimately it burned me out. The genuine hatred for everything that religion seems to try to spawn is what led to me renouncing my religious ties. Granted I still keep my keepsakes and bibles simply as keepsakes, or heirlooms if you will. BUT in my humble opinion, religion should not be something children are forced into. Children should be allowed to live their lives free of the shackles of belief. I speak from experience obviously.

I found it too limiting. To a devout christian, anything that isn't clearly outlined in the bible as "NOT A SIN" is something that will send you to hell instantly. The same thing goes for Baptists, jehova's witnesses, and mormons. Look at what such devout belief did to the poor fools of the "Westboro Baptist Church". They are so bitter and angry that they will picket anything that they deem a sin. Hell, I could drive by listening to Heavy metal and they would picket me. I understand there is freedom of religion, and freedom of speech going on here, But this shit is seriously out of hand. Why doesn't the government step in like they did with those college students that weren't doing anything harmful?


To the left you'll see a picture of the "Buddy Christ" from Dogma. Being a comedic and fairly lighthearted take on religion and it's various absurdities, I like this. If not simply because this image causes no harm, yet it still pisses people off for some reason.

In short. People take religion too seriously, Especially if forced into it at a young age instead of being allowed to experience it on their own. (Christ! if any of my old teachers read this they'd probably think i was crazy...)

And finally, in closing. I do renounce religion. Not out of hatred or spite, but because i felt it simply did not fit with me. I don't care what other's believe in, but don't act negatively towards me, or the way I live simply because it doesn't comply with your beliefs... That's how wars start people. Anywho, I'll say more on this later,  but for now I'm gonna put in some job applications.... later folks!

We get bored then randosity happens...

http://ellyandnaithan.blogspot.com/2011/06/first-joke-what-do-you-get-when-you.html...
it's a joke! get it? not really? ok well on to the actual blog post

This one is going to be kept short simply because I don't want to spend 3 hours writing on how pissed at something I am... so here it is.... I've been seeing an increased amount of bullshit all over the internet about Barrack Obama.... specifically hatred towards him.... Now were it any other president i would probably join right the fuck in.... I think it's all really convenient. The economy was going to shit and we just needed someone to blame.... in comes black president... *angellic singing* PATSY! To be honest, every time he tries to do something, congress fucks him up.... And i genuinely think it's because he is black, and they all GENUINELY believe that he is mentally inferior to them all in some weird way....

The real failure is not the leader,
 but those who claim he failed
Some people even fail to realize that Obama's failings are not for a lack of trying, but for our own unwillingness to commit to new policy and actually try to bring about change. Our actions are reflected in the congress, who constantly fuck Barrack with their own bullshit.... Which really brings me to my point.... DID WE EVER GIVE THE POOR FUCKER A CHANCE?  A REAL CHANCE? We just seem to have thrown him to the wolves like he would have been alright. Our expectation is to blame. The real failure is not the leader, but those who claim he failed.

So, remember folks. He tried to give us hope. All we did was bitch and moan.

(BTW. If I see one more smear campaign against obama.... i will probably go postal... Not in patriotism.... but in rage over a man not being given a fair chance....)

This is nait.... fucking off to Canada in 2012

2000 hits? HOLY COW!

Jesus people.... two thousand hits.... count it with me... 1, 2-thousand... 2 thousand....
I'm pretty stoked now :D

Seriously though.... for reasons still not clear to me this blog started receiving somewhere over 500 hits a month... It's still a mystery.

i finished this song a few days ago.... but why the hell not.... in honor of hitting 2000 hits, here's "Once Around the Old School" by ME!

once around the old school by Naithan

btw... .for the first time ever..... I'm going to label and tag EVERY NEW POST! In the hopes of better organizing the site that is.....

WELL! it only took 13 years.....

Hail to the misogynistic king baby!
... AND DUKE NUKEM FOREVER CAME OUT! but sadly.... it's not what anyone wanted. So you can take that and gtfo if this is too long a blog for you.

Despite my disappointment I still "Hail to the King baby" because even though it was canceled like sixty times.... it still came out... that's something right? Kinda.... a really disappointed kinda. Don't get me wrong, despite my utter disgust for how this was handled, the game still has it's moments where you'll find an unexpected laugh, or a little bit of shootey goodness. Other than that it's a fairly bland game with poor graphics, twitchy control, and fairly unremarkable EVERYTHING. Given my love for Duke Nukem 3D and Duke Nukem: Land of Babes,  I will still review this title fairly, and honestly(no pulling punches like FOX NEWS here).

 Graphics....: poor.... simply poor... I understand gearbox really just lifted the title from 3D realms' cold dead grip.... but they should have done better... A bit of a facelift would have really done the "Holsom Twins" good since their models just looked WOODEN, as did everyone else's. Duke's jump animation was just stupid, and his crouch was also underwhelming. though some of the aliens animations were fairly well realized, the rest of the game fails to really hit that well.
graphics score: 4 out of 10(not much stands out.... but at least it's not that god awful gundam game.)

she looks more wooden than Washington's teeth
 Gameplay:.... also poor. It has a few moment's of shooty goodness, but the rest of it is turret sequences, puzzles that are stupid(or even far beyond stupid) and floaty, annoying driving sections, and mindless quests that have no point whatsoever.(in one you seriously have to find a vibrator and popcorn..... i wish i was kidding...) Twitchy controls, and poor physics all over the place just kinda suck whatever enjoyment you could find in being the duke.... right the fuck back out....
Gameplay : 3 out of 10....( poor controls and mindless fetch quests with a few good parts.... still not much good though)

Story: not much of one here.... basically, the aliens are back, and they are taking the women....  and that pisses Duke off.... so what follows is a roid-rage induced "Bloodbath" with all the witty one liners, and half of the actual wit. Combine that with the maturity of a 12 year old. Oh yeah.... it's sad.... very sad.... it made me cry that they treated Duke Nukem this way. that said there are a few bits like halo jokes (Power armor is for pussies!) and jokes on what are now Memes ( DAMNIT LEEROY! ).
Story: 5 out of 10 ( in short, it sucks, but it has it's moments.... just like everything else about this abomination.)

I want this Duke back!

Sound: I won't beat around the bush here.... it blows. Just like the rest of the game, it has it's moments, but still manages to vary between underwhelming, and just TERRIBLE.
sound: 4 out of 10(again.... it sucks.... but has moments)

OVERALL: I am disappointed with this travesty. What gearbox did was something for the fans. In resurrecting, DNF Gearbox bit off more than they could chew. I know really the shittyness of the game is all 3D realm's fault(for the most part). Gearbox could have fixed it, but instead they just slapped together what is essentially a game, but one that is far worse than what it should have been. I know there was a want for the game to be top of the line, but 3D realms just shot themselves, and later gearbox, in the foot. It's sad that it turned out as it did, but i look at it this way, for everything they could have done better, they sure as shit could have done it alot worse. I really hope Gearbox does another duke and does it right..... I really want to see the King take his throne once more.... even if he is an anachronism in a "Politically correct" world... WE NEED THE DUKE AND WE NEED IT DONE RIGHT!
Overall: i'll give the game a 5 out of 10... it sucks, but it's no "thor" or "Aquaman" or "Superman 64" (ie.... despite the game's mediocrity.... it was actually playable)

Well.... it took forever.... it's here.... and it just isn't what we were expecting
 This is Naithan, signing out....

new tune.... and merchandise?

First the tune...
one step left by Naithan
now the merch!
Generally I abhor random bloggers doing merch... but i almost want to create my own, just to have an awesome shirt... or poster, or bandana.... Shit's expensive though. But still it is a neat idea.... one I will definitely think about. maybe a shirt that says something like "I hated myself before it was mainstream" or, "so what if i'm a furry, that just means i have more friends than you"
