I've been expecting a big box of awesome this week in the post
ALL WEEK LONG.... and finally I got the letter to notify me that my box is at customs and its ready to be collected from the New Zealand Post Airport Oaks Depot.... No-one could give me a clear explanation as to why customs felt the need to tear it open and take a peek... I can wait an extra four days for them to deliver it to the PO Box or I can pick it up from the Depot today.... which is less than 10kms from my office. Those are life's tough choices!
I think a collectors favorite part of buying a new game other than obviously eventually playing it is finding a space for it in the right spot on the shelf or pile or wherever one hoards games.
In the mean time I've been playing a little clean up I managed to get two more levels of Velvet Assassin (JP Ver)
done.... playing it right after http://www.trueachievements.com/50-Cent-BotS-JP-xbox-360.htm
its a very stark contrast fiddy is very run and gun and explosions and loud rap and crazy stuff.... Velvet Ass is really the extreme opposite... a stealthy, slow violin pieces, sneaking, waiting for long ass conversations in a foreign language between bad guys and having to be meticulous about each kill.
I like that the shooter genre is so wide in variety and there is a shooter for just about any mood I'm in!
Seeing my TV watch list getting longer I decided to throw on some Just Dance Kids 2
and knock out the entire setlist.... again.... all 59 torturous songs, only stupid people do the whole setlist in one sitting... so I saved 19 songs to do this morning, danced with the xbox TV on mute... watching TV shows across the room on a separate TV. I kept a spreadsheet going on my net book to count down how many left to do.... its weird to see titles like "Are you sleeping, I'm gonna catch ya, Get your wiggle out, Hold Still, Something I Want" and then watching kids in pajamas dancing around.... WAY freaking creepier than any Japanese game.
All I need is some poor sucker
friend to help me dance the ENTIRE SETLIST... again... twice... ugh... I noticed yesterday that Just Dance Greatest Hits
is due out this week, with JD4 and JD Disney due out in October its a little bit overkill on the dance games... I guess I shouldn't complain... especially not the Disney one... it feels like a guilty pleasure just to be excited for it
In real life dancing stuff.... I use to do a little canine freestyle (or doggy dancing) with Kaha and we never did competitions it was more for something to keep his active mind busy more than it was for accolades or competitive spirit. The canine obedience scene is full of Border Collies and other "smart dogs" so when a "slower breed" like a Great Dane comes along it really turns heads... I've had the pleasure of meeting and doing obedience classes and Heel work with Hsin Yi who writes a great blog about her dog Honey
here's a Youtube clip of them doing a routine
