I'm ready for some Smash! I only wish Yoshistar would still be around, we used to trash talk all the time back before Brawl was released.

Anyone up for some Smash? What about you, n8? Let's do this!

It's great to hear from some of you. It's been a while since I've really invested any meaningful time on the site, though I gotta say its seems to be moving awfully slow nowadays.
Nonetheless, my spirits are still with you all and whenever we're ready to push this into the next gear I'm all for it. In the meantime, I'm already in my mid 20s, so life has gotten a lot more complicated. I'm loving it, though! I have a couple of awesome projects in the making. Whenever their ready, you guys will be among the first I'll share them with.

@Eben: Keep at it, bro. I know the feeling. I really want to run the Iron Man next year and I'm training hard for it. You have to keep yourself busy, I'm running a 10K this month. You have my support!

@celery: I see all kinds of lizards everyday over here at the Caribbean, but I can hardly identify them. Good luck with that! I've been travelling a lot last year, I went to New York City last month, I had a blast. I always get the urge to visit the UK every time I see your photos. I hope that if it ever does happen, reality is at least almost as good as your pictures.

I finished repairing a NES that someone gave me because it was broken. So I've been mostly playing really old NES games. I've already finished playing TMNT Part 2, Adventure Island 1 and am trying to take down Soda Popinski on Punch Out!!.

@celery: Oh ok. Thanks, cel! The 3DS I'm using isn't mine, so I didn't have the time to search thoroughly. If I get a chance to try again, I'll definitely do that. Thanks again!

@N8: I was taking pictures of the miis with my phone. :)

Posted a new set of 5 miis. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem.
I don't think I'll ever be able to reach 800 miis. That's just obscene.

Easy question for the Mii Artisans. How do I take a picture of the
Miis in the 3DS?

I was as skeptic as you, but my inner Nintendo kid was making me feel like crap for passing on a Zelda title.
And I'm definitely not dissapointed.

This time its not really waggling. It actually registers your every move and every sword slice is absolutely important. In fact, if you waggle your way around the game, you won't get past the first dungeon. It took me a while to get used to it, as I was just moving my wrist waggle-style during the first portion of the game. By the first hour my wrist hurt and I had died like 5 times. When I started using my whole arm to slash the sword, and putting thought into every move; I was completly immersed.

Every enemy you encounter you have to attack it a certain way. If you waggle and slice incorrectly, you'll inflict no damage, be stunned for a sec and the enemy will most likely counter. Most Zelda games are pretty easy, but I've been stumped a couple of times because the solution recquired to think HOW you're going to use your sword rather than just hitting a button to use it.

The controls are far from perfect, as there are some annoying things. Like controling moving objects and characters by titling around the controller. But, the controls are definitely not a gimmick this time around. They feel like an integral part of the experience and add a new awesome side to Zelda's swordplay and puzzle-solving adventure we've come to love.

I don't really care for 3D that much. I don't hate it, but I feel it doesn't add anything of value to my film viewing.

I deeply believe it is just a gimmick, and will rather not see them in 3D if I had the choce.

This is not because I dislike 3D or how far the technology has gotten. It's because film making is not taking 3D seriously. The creative minds behind films don't take 3D into account wen they're filming, at least not in a meaningful way. And we end up with an after work tacked on gimmick that only serves a marketing purpose. Yeah, sometimes watching films in 3D is "cool", but it is a completely forgettable experience.

Don't get me wrong, I would love for 3D to be meaningful. Sadly, its not.

I hear in the new Martin Scorsese's film Hugo, he uses 3D as an integral part of the story teling. I'd like to see that very much. Maybe he is the one to make a difference.

I like the name "The Boot and Shoe" for some reason. Though I wouldn't know what to say about the place as I've never been to England.

Here in Puerto Rico there are all sorts of places to go and get your drink on. I don't have pictures about the place but close to where I'm living now there's this place called "Hanna's Pub". Pretty cool place to play pool, have drinks and chill out with some friends.

But in San Juan there's this place called "El Ocho de Blanco" which is pretty nice. Everything is so cheap. Drinks and food. A burger, fries and a drink won't go much more than $5. The place is divided into 3 floors, the first floor is a lounge relaxed place, the  higher floors are more party/crazy area.

ocho de blanco

I usually hang out at the lounge.
I'm not much of a party person. When we go out, we usually like to relaxed and maybe play some pool. There's this place close to "El Ocho de Blanco" called "El Refugio. It's like a time warp into the 1930's in the island. You can come and play some Dominoes and drink some "Chachitos" (which is a house *****tail). Don't ask me what's in it, but its pretty awesome.

I wish I could relate to your establishments, celery, but our cultures are so different. It would be cool to hang out and relax at one of those places.

I'm not too fond of beer. I guess I haven't really tried that much different kinds, anyways. I usually see myself going back to Heineken or DosEquis.
I'm more of a *****tail drinker myself. When I feel like drinking anything neat, it usually is Whisky or Tequila.

I can't believe someone suggested Kick-Ass as movie of 2010... Not to echo the words of anon but... *facepalm*.

I really enjoyed Inception. But I need to see King's Speech first before I can make my mind up.

Good to hear from all you guys. Been doing pretty good on my part. Got a job at the beginning of January, pretty much why I've been mostly away.

About the video editing question, N8. The best video editing software is Apple's "Final Cut". It costs $999, but if you are serious about video editing, THIS is the industry standard. A lot of major films are edited in Final Cut, many of them Academy Award winners and nominees. Don't be intimidated by this though, like many Apple software, Final Cut is SUPER easy to use. I learned to use and edit my first video for TV in Final Cut in about 1 hour.

Final Cut is only for MacOS and its pretty expensive. So if you're just in it for the fun, then you might want to get it from a "friend".

Another video editor is Adobe Premier. It's pretty good, Final Cut was formed by a team originating from Adobe Premiere. But Premiere ain't as user friendly as Final Cut. If you put some time on it, you'll get it down. But, from experience, Premiere ain't as intuitive. However its still a great software and it costs $800.

Those two softwares are purely video editing. Though you can pull off some pretty cool things with them, if you want to make green screen effects and more complex visual and special effects then you aren't going to be able to accomplish that with Final Cut or Premiere. At least not as easily. For that, there is no equal, Adobe After Effects is the beast. You can make pretty much any visual and special effect with Adobe After Effects. You can edit video in After Effects, but keep in mind that it was not made for that and its not a good video editor. After Effects costs $999.

That is my experience with video editing in the industry. The software is expensive. If you're heading a team for TV or film, then a $1000 here for editing ain't a big deal. But if you're you editing in your home for your friends, well Iv'e seen many opt for pirating. I've also heard a lot people talk about Sony Vegas editing software, though I've never used it. Still, Sony Vegas costs $600, and although its a little less than the others; I feel the money is better invested in some top of the line software.

If you don't want to buy anything or "borrow" anything, and just want free software... Then Windows Movie Maker comes with your Windows PC. It's utter crap, but it works. If you have a Mac, iMovie from Apple is amazing. For a free software, you can do some pretty amazing things in iMovie. If you don't have it, it shouldn't cost more the $40. iMovie has a lot based on Final Cut, seeing its from the same company. It's a pretty awesome software for beginners. It's MacOS exclusive though.

I hope that helped if not at least helped you sleep a while. :)

I don't know if this has been reported, but on multi-page threads, whenever I click on a page number it takes me to a "404 Error: Page not found" page. It happens with ALL multi-page threads. This means I can only see the first page of these threads.
