Fresh from teh oven, DDR is back!

As bad as the site looks, DDR Supernova is not a joke~ and the first test location for this new DDR Mix happens to be at the Boomers! in Irvine, the one right next to UCI off Culver. There’s about 20ish new songs in there, and I don’t remember any of them except Doll from IIDX with the FMV intact (scaled for DDR of course)… oh right, there’s this wierd version of Long Train Running, Red something by Naoki and some dude that seems rather popular… um, yeah, go there and see for yourself if you want to know the song list, the line is only about 7-8 games long on a Saturday night so it can’t get any worst…

Other facts you should know:
-The test officially started at January 27th and nobody knows when they’re taking the thing away… so if you want a first peek, better make it quick~
-The button controls are basically the same as those in extreme – except the left and right arrows are reversed last time I was there, so hitting left selects the next song, sets the speed from 1x to 8x, etc.
-There’s a scroll bar to the right. All the new songs are at the top of that scroll bar – you start the game at the very first new song.
-AAing song is Extreme2 US style – full combo, then loosely a good amount of perfects and greats.
-Yes, there’s an extra stage, DDR MAX style. The new Max is just plain… horrid, I mean the song sucks.
-Play any of the old songs on the song list at your own risk – some songs, such as Sync as I’ve witnessed, is off-beat by a visible margin.
-Oh yeah, before I forget… the dancers missing from 5th mix will quite possibly make a come back… that, or they’re using the dancers as fillers before they put the FMVs for all the songs back in.

Finally… don’t forget the game is still in beta ^^; and House of the Dead 4 rocks my socks.

EDIT: DDRFreaks forum says that the test period lasts until 2/10, so 15 days.

:(

I guess everyone must be busy the last day or two.

I think the urgency for purchasing a new desktop is bigger than I thought… Missing WoW aside, the entertainment that this laptop offers is just not up to par with what the desktop have, not to mention the fact that this machine has to be relatively free of excessive games/anime/mp3s in order to keep it “strictly business”. I’m bored to death right now… I think I’ll go check out the new DDR Supernova thingie at Boomers! and see if any one of you are lurking there.

Hamster Dying … Dying… DEAD. :(

The CPU in my computer just shut itself down a minute ago due to “overheating”, when this is 11:30 pm and the house is… cold…
Add that to the recent cascade of memory failures, I think the little hamster running inside our desktop is dying… again.

EDIT:

Time of death report coming soon. clocked at 2:18 PM, Jan 27, 2006. I think I might be able to boot it up again once or twice, but the computer is good as dead.

Well, can’t say that I’m not happy to let it go. This hunk was sort of an impulse buy right after my last computer died out, but thank god that I bought my laptop and moved all of my work related stuff here… now I can at least continue working and keep myself mildly amused with flash games until I sit down and decide on a new computer to get…

which is needed soon. I’ve been hankerin’ to play all the new FPSes but didn’t want to play it in low ass resolutions to keep a half decent frame rate. Once my next paycheck sinks in it’s spend time~ again, anyone who’d like to help this gullible asian kid spend his fortune is most appreciated…

END EDIT

Anyone got a good recommendation for websites that pre-build gaming computers? I’m doing my own share of research, but any help is appreciated…

EDIT #2:

If anyone who plays WoW catches this message, tell my friends in Azeroth that I’ll not be back in a month or two, ya? ;_;


Well, not really, but I think it’s good to pull out old gags once in awhile… keeps it alive, y’know.

But yea, I got pictures if you want one. It’s a prom date picture of Erika, a character out of one of the many unfinished projects that’s bouncing around.

It’s been awhile since I crank out anything half decent, and so I’m satisfied with the half decent stuff I’m cranking out right now. As for life, there’s work, In The Groove, Temple of Elemental Evil, occasional WoW, and dealing with mundane problems after my brother came back.

Yea, my oldest brother Alan came back with his wife Michelle. And it didn’t take long to find out that my older brother Wesley probably moved out to live in with his new girlfriend. So here I am, sort of looking at a distorted version of myself committed to a relationship/married, and it’s kind of surreal, really. But that’s life.

Hit me up on AIM will ya? I’m alive now. Occasionally.

EDIT: I should do this more often ^_^
