Incredibad!

I finally decided to give the "Incredibad" album a listen today, and I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. There were a couple of tracks on it that weren't really all that great, but even the worst tracks were still funny. Plus, it had the Natalie Portman rap on there, which I hadn't heard in the longest time.

I'm also in the process of re-watching Digimon Savers. I finished watching episode 38 earlier today, and I'll get around to watching 39 sometime later. I had almost forgot how excellent Savers is, and I'm also reminded of how short the series is (48 episodes long), which is a bit of a downer.

Speaking of Digimon, my backlog has grinded to a halt, since I want to EV train my new Rain Dance team in Pokemon, but I also want to grind out my team in Digimon Dusk. I haven't even beat the post-final boss quests in Dusk, which still bothers me a bit, but I know it'll take more time to do all of that then it would to EV train my Pokemon, which would also take a long time. Not only that, but I'm starting to get anxious about EVO and the fact that I'll be broke once it's over, since I have to find a way to get an arcade stick before the event AND still have money for the flight and hotel and food. Ugh. I have no other alternative but to keep looking though.

Finally, Whitebear HAS COME BACK to the internet!

It feels awesome to be getting information again. Five weeks with no cable television or internet was pretty awful, if not for the lack of entertainment and information about the outside world. Comcast tried to screw us by adding some extra charges onto our bill, and instead of paying said fees, the family declined to pay. So zap! No more service. But we got a new plan (which is similar to our old plan, with some things omitted, like phone service), and everything is right with the world.

While I was away however, I did manage to clean out my games backlog a little bit. Nothing major like Persona 4, but a lot of "minor" games (mainly Genesis and SNES games). Earthbound, Mother 3 and Beavis & Butthead are just three of the epics I ran through. I also beat PKMN Platinum (post E4 as well), Digimon Dusk, Valkyria Chronicles, and I'm almost done with Final Fantasy 9 for the first fucking time. I say the first time because my Disc 3 is still busted. I tried to get it cleaned, but even after the cleaning, it still wouldn't progress past Bran Bal. I'm going to try to get it cleaned one more time, but in all honesty, I think that that particular disc has seen its last days. Anyone have a Disc 3 they wouldn't mind letting me borrow for a few days? It literally freezes on me as I'm leaving Bran Bal and entering Pandemonium.

Evo is around the corner, and I'm way hyped. Thanks to my mom, I'm getting free airfare, since she has plane tickets she's not going to use, and is letting me use the savings for myself. I don't get how it works, but I'm gonna be asking her how in the world it works so I'm not way confused if I have to pay some mystery amount of money.

Well, time to cut this short. I DL'd Worms for PS3, and I need to get the rust off my SFIV skills. Can't believe it's only 3 months away!

Do you smell what Whitebear is cookin?

Money is straight dollar signs, yo!

I just need to say something first. I know OF eBay, but I've never used eBay before, aside from checking the price of some random object. So you'll understand my surprise at using it for the first time.

I put up an item I had obtained from Microsoft, a Fable 2 Downloadable Content Code. The code was included on most (but not all) of the Limited Edition versions of Fable 2, due to a manufacturing error. Microsoft realized this, so they allowed owners of the LE to email them, and after some time, they would be emailed a replacement code. However, they didn't put in any limits as to who could actually obtain a code, so all you had to do was put in your email, regardless of whether or not you had the game, and you would get one.

Months later, my code is sitting in my email inbox gathering e-dust, when someone informs me that the code is selling like hotcakes on eBay. Eager to strike while the iron is hot, I dig up my code, plaster the information (without the actual code of course) up in my bid, and here we are now, with me $36 richer.

The rest of my stuff sold, as well (Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and MvC2 strat guide), and it's just a matter of time before I ship them (hopefully I can get it done quickly) and get the rest of my monies.

I've never used eBay before, which is why I feel so giddy in getting money like this. I feel like a Rockefeller!

In other news, I've had a couple of songs by Lady Gaga and Hilary Duff in my head non-stop. It worries me.

Rockefeller Whitebear...nah, doesn't have a good ring to it.

Well, it IS Sega...

I just had one of the weirdest dreams ever the other night.

I dreamt that I was at my cousin's place, and I was looking through a bunch of his old games, and I saw some Sonic game where he teams up with the Ninja Turtles and Iron Man. It was a beat-em-up, and it was surprisingly fun. The plot was that they had to go all over the US to collect coins that had been stolen from the United States Treasury. The cover art was Sonic and Iron Man looking like they were flying towards you, with the TMNT posing underneath them.

I wouldn't put it past Sega to make something like this.

In worse news, Conan O' Brien is having his last show next week. To make it even worse, he's getting replaced by Jimmy Fallon.

...I hate life.

EDIT: Ok, I don't hate life quite as much now. Seems Conan IS leaving Late Night, but around June, he'll be taking over Leno's position on The Tonight Show. Fallon is still taking over Late Night, however.

Whitebear would totally purchase that Sonic game.

Rewarded for absent-mindedness? About time!

One of the guys I know on CAG has made a delightful discovery: the Fable 2 DLC from the Limited Edition version is going for a lot on eBay. For those who forgot, the LE of Fable 2 shipped with some copies not including the DLC that you get with the LE, so Microsoft allowed people who didn't receive their code to email them to get one a few business days later. What they didn't specify was who could email them, so people who didn't even own a LE copy could email MS, and they would still receive a code. I was one of those people, and I never redeemed my code, since it took so long to get it.

Now I hear the code is on eBay going for over $40. The guy I mentioned sold his earlier today for $55. I'm so going to put mine up for action.

Whitebear Hax? Yeah, probably.

I owned LittleBigPlanet?

I had almost forgotten that I purchased that game. I beat Brave Fencer Musashi, then didn't know what to play, and I remembered it all of a sudden. I haven't even beaten story mode, which is embarrassing, so I'm working on that now. Community levels are still dollar signs though. I found a level where someone recreated the Ducktales NES music from The Moon stage. Awesome.

One thing I found in my travels through the LittleBigPenis user levels is that there was a surprising lack of anything Digimon-related. I saw some crappy Pokemon levels, and a level where someone tried to recreate the music from the japanese season one (the song "Butterfly," to be specific), but nothing substantial! I don't want to have to make a Digimon level (mainly because I'm lazy), but if I don't see one by the time I complete story mode, I just might have to step up to the plate.

Still haven't found a copy of Valkyria Chronicles anywhere. I don't wanna look online until I absolutely have to, but it looks like that time is coming ever so quickly. I didn't think it was gonna be this rare. I also didn't think it was gonna be good either, so I blame myself.

Whitebear ate 3 pork chops. He is satisfied.

Yawn

Like I said, Evo is coming up. In case you didn't see my post last year about it (did I even post last year at all?), it's a national fighting game tournament, and it's awesome. Think anime convention, but fighting games instead of anime, no cosplayers instead of cosplayers, and Vegas instead of not Vegas. Yeah, it's awesome. I'll be playing in Street Fighter 2 HD Remix and Street Fighter 4. I need to pre-order my copy of 4 still, but it's all good...hopefully.

Found out how much I'm getting from the IRS, and it's pretty sweet. It'll pay for the trip, and then some. I'm totally procrastinating in my Street Fighter 2 practice, altough I picked up Bison as my sub. So far online, I've dealt with Hondas pretty well, or at least way better than my Hawk could ever dream to do. Still need to work on pokes and such, but things are looking like T(ony). Hawk and M. Bison.

Thinking about participating in that GameStop SFIV tournament also. Problem is, it's a midnight launch tournament, if I read correctly. And I'm not too keen on staying up that late for it. Although if I won, I'd have a chance to go to Evo for free, if the rumors are correct. It's still something to mull over. Also, I have zero practice in SFIV, which is something else to mull. Hopefully I make my decision soon.

Almost at the end of Brave Fencer Musashi. Yeah, I bought it recently for cheap. It's realy fun, but it's a tad short. Although the game does a good job of hiding its length. It doesn't feel like a short game at all, but 10-12 hours is kinda short to me. Still, it's incredibly fun, so I don't mind.

Someone by Whitebear a copy of Valkyria Chronicles, kthx.

Get hype!

It's that time again! Evo 2k9 is this July, and I'm as hyped as ever for it.

Real post to follow later, since I'm fuckin' tired.
Axem Rangers!

YO DAWG!

I dived into Sonic Battle a little bit last night, just to see if I could get used to the mechanics. It's pretty fun, from the 20 minutes of Challenge Mode I played. I'm not entirely sure I get anything from Challenge Mode (after looking through Gamefaqs), so I'll stick to Story, and see where that takes me. I also got through a chunk of GTAIV, and I think I'm almost finished with it. I'm nowhere near 100%'ing the game, but that's not what I was going for in the first place. The story is surprisingly good for a GTA game, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how everything pans out. Sometime soon, I'm going to have to trade in DBZ: Burst Limit, since I played that for 20 minutes, then proceeded to turn off my PS3. So awful. I'll be using that to help pay for Street Fighter IV, which arrives in a few weeks. Excited? You betcha. I also really want to get Valkyria Chronicles. I finally decided on it, and while I'm not as hyped over it as I am for SFIV or KoFXII, I'm still looking forward to playing it a great deal.

Good god, I've had the song "Let It Rock" in my head all day today. What's worse is that it has Lil' Wayne in it, which makes me hate myself since I think he's one of the shittier rappers I've heard recently. Still, the song is alright, and the beat is dollar signs.

I've seen a lot of movies recently since it turns out that my schooling is scheduled for summer, and not anytime soon. "Surviving the Game," "Dan in Real Life," "Juno," "Jumper," "The Replacements," and a couple more that I can't remember. Out of the ones I listed, only "The Replacements" is a movie I regret watching. All the others were really good, or really entertaining, or both...except "Jumper." Jumper was kind of a middle ground. I recommend watching it, but I also recommend keeping your expectations low before you watch it.

There's some places near the house that're hiring, so sometime in the next few days, I'll be looking to apply. I need money. Not badly, but I could always use spending money.

Yo, Whitebear herd you like cars, dawg.
