Squatting Bear is a Nerd.

Squatting Bear has been seeing playing a turn based role playing game, called Lost Odyssey.

"The story begins with the immortal Squatting Bear in the climax of the epic war between the Magic Republic of Uhra and the Kingdom of Gohtza. A decisive battle takes place on the Highlands of Wohl. In the mist of war the skies become a dark pitch black and a giant meteor mysteriously appears over the battle field. The Uhran council suspects a leak of magical energy from Grand Staff to be responsible for the meteor, and places its overseer Gongora under house arrest.

Since Squatting Bear is immortal, he was the sole survivor from the meteor's point of impact, and thus summoned to the council. The night before meeting with the council, SB has a nightmare where he sees a young girl jump off a cliff. It is hinted that these strange nightmares are fragments of his past. The following morning SB meets with the council. When asked by the council how he survived, Squatting Bear says he doesn't know. Gongora, who though under house arrest is still respected by the council for his knowledge of magic, says Squatting Bear has lost his memory and his immortality comes from a spell that he cast on him. When asked the secrets of the spell Gongora explains that the spell is cursed, all those who have heard it's secret have meet a swift death. The council who have lost contact with the operations taking place at Grand Staff, order SB to investigate. The council orders Squatting Bear to take Seth, another immortal who survived the meteor, along with him. Gongora later orders Squatting Bear to take Jansen, a hired mercenary, with him to Grand Staff."

Sounds fucking stupid. Make sure to meet with Queen Numara near the Ice Canyon to get the Gohtza lightning sword and some polyjuice potion to get +12 charisma or some bullshit like that. Quit that game SB.

St. Patrick's Day
If anyone wants to have a really fun time they should come and stay with me on St. Patrick's Day Weekend in Chicago. Last year was my first experience with the debouchary that is the Chicago Irish, which can only be rivaled by the Chicago Polish community. I have never seen anything like it. There are a multiple parades and drinking opportunities to partake in.


Unfortunately it's a little weird this year. There are two main parades for St. Patty's Day, one is downtown and is more like a regular parade (but the river is green), think The Fugitive, the other is on the south side and it's a complete drinking fest. Word on the street is if you snoop around enough, you might sneak your way into a secret underground drinking competition. People just walk around with cases of beer and hand them out to others. It's sweet. But this year the south side parade is on the Sunday (yes, Sunday) the 9th of March. If anyone wants to come either weekend I have plenty of room for you. Either weekend will have lots of fun stuff to do like all you can drink green beer for 10 bucks and other fine deals.

HD DVD -> BluRay
For all you fools that bought the HD DVD player for your Xbox here is a article on how to convert your HD DVDs to BluRay. It's not easy and it would be expensive but I figure it is worth sharing. It's exactly how you would think you would do it.

How did they get the river green like that? Did everyone drink a bunch of Mountain Dew Pitch Black then dump their sewage into it?

Man, i'd love to see Chicago during St. Patricks day. I can just assume that it's crazy. Hopefully it rivals Cinco de Mayo here hahaha, except that's more margaritas and tequila. Luckily my birthday falls right around that time, and is on spring break, so i can just lay there drunk for a week.

hmmm... either you guys could come the actual weekend of st. pattys day or we could go snowboarding/skiing somewhere in the middle (WI) on Saturday? or something. I dunno.

What day is it?

Also does anyone know when the COD4 update is comming out and the new maps?

Dammer said...

That game sounds sweet, I happen to need a new RPG game.

Josey WaIes said...

I watched him play it for like 30 min, the graphics are good, and the story seems sweet way better than most movies I have seen in years.

Daymonster said...

do most movies do turn based fighting?

Josey WaIes said...

obv daymonster has a problem whith the turn based fighting. I will be honest I thought it was lame too and wanted to make fun of SB but then I watched it for a bit and I can tell that it will get interesting as the game goes on, or it seemed to me like it would.

If I did not devote all my time to COD4 I might play it as well.
