I don’t usually go looking for info about new games, but while I was researching something else I was randomly looking up stuff in the other window. Nerf guns, Gamecenter CX, and eventually Skylanders. I ended up at videos from Toy Fair showing off Skylanders Giants. You may recall back when I got Skylanders that I said I hoped they made sequels where you could use the old characters in the new game, and just added a few new faces. Well that’s pretty much exactly what they are doing. As I understand it there will be 4 new Skylanders, 8 new giants, and 4 old skylanders reissued with new light up features. That’s brutal… The light up features serve no purpose other than to screw up the lighting when you play in a dark room, as I do, but I love the idea. Activision is going to do what I hoped and what I also, on some level, feared. If nothing else the old portals still work, and hopefully the maps will be much more vast than in the first game. I want to take on wave upon wave of enemies, and have reason enough to try doing so with all 30 plus Skylanders. I hope they include the jump mechanic in the new games, but I didn’t see anyone springing around in the videos, so that’s a shame.
At any rate I’m going to need to make a lot of money to feed this addiction… Along with my many other addictions… So be sure to look to me for all your art needs. Reasonable pricing structures are available. XD What I should really be doing is saving for better drawing stuff. We’re getting to the Jo’s movie and Thomas’s recconing portions of the story finally and I want a larger drawing area. I’ve got most of my problems with Photoshop worked out. Not that I had to do anything really. Windows seems to be slowly learning to fix problems on its own. Which I freely admit is creepy. Creepy, but useful.
The other day I was cleaning my truck and part of it fell off. There was this plastic wind thing on the hood that… Well I don’t know what it did actually. It’s primary function seemed to be a place for leaves to collect. Anyway I always assumed it was bolted to the hood underneath, but that was not the case. While wash off that section the whole thing came off. It has been held to my vehicle for years and years with nothing more than double sided tape. That was surprising enough, but it also led me to wonder who made the tape. That’s some quality tape right there. It held that thing on for… maybe a decade? through every weather condition, to the point I thought it was BOLTED DOWN. I want more of that tape for everyday use. Imagine the havoc a person could wreak upon an unsuspecting public.
In addition to all of that my truck looks like it shaved its moustache. It’s weird. Just like seeing someone who just changed their hair. I drove it around without the thing on and noticed no difference in performance. I really have no idea what its function was. I just never thought to remeove it.
