Robots.. and other stuffs

Well today MrDruidKing was telling us about this robocode stuff, and we thought... hey... lets give it a try.

So we all downloaded the SDK thingy and started screwing around, i created a mighty robot called JIMMY HILL... When i say mighty, i acctually mean it was a bag of crap. It would rather skoot around shooting at thin air than acctually shoot another robot. By this time Alex had already created ChuckNorris the robot to own all robots. However by some fluke Jimmy managed to pull a win out of the fight... i think everyone else was a bit suspicious of what we were doing when we were screaming "GO CHUCK" at the screen.

Anyway we all had a big showdown and Jimmy died quite pathetically against Alex/Druids bots, so i gave up...

The Wii

Well ive got the day off in anticipation of its release so im hoping to go get one on the day of release without pre-ordering. I also want to get Zeldump so i can find out how many ways i can make Link die in this new chapter of the series.

If anyone has any ideas of where i can get one on day of release feel free to post in the comments as atm i only have one place in mind... good old PC World, no one ever buys stuff from there so they should have tons of spare Wii's to sell. When i wanted a gamecube on day of release without pre-ordering PC World never let me down!

Still playing Final Fantasy 12, although i died quite badly on some crazy flying ship thing because i was too lazy to control the characters myself. The Gambit System is fairly awesome in the way it allows you to just sit back and let everything just happen without you worrying about stuff... like HOLY CRAP THERES A BLOB OF SLIME EATING MY FACE... who cares let the Gambit System cope with it, while i go and take a dump or something...

Got Grandia III last night too, i love the awesome fighting system in it, its like Grandia II but with some fairly nice improvements... but WHERE THE HELL IS SKYE!. One other thing ive noticed about RPG games as of late, is the fact that they are not that exciting to start, its just like you have to work on the game for a few hours to get to the good stuff.

Final Fantasy VII was awesome, load it up... im on a train... some cool musics on... BAM ive got 2 guards trying to batter me for some unknown reason. Then im blowing up some reactor, and fighting some bosses, and doing more awesome stuff... Why cant more games have great game intros like that.

Jode did make a good point thought that if every game had an intro like that it would not be so awesome anymore, but even so... only Final Fantasy VII and Suikoden II have had fairly awesome intros. Final Fantasy XII wasn't too bad though to be fair, the CGI battle things were awesome and i was quite happy to run around town doing some crappy errands for a bit before i got some action.
