Con Crud [Nov. 24th, 2004|06:24 pm]

I do, indeed, have a case of ConCrud(tm). Did anyone lose a case of it at MFF? I'd be happy to give it back.

Bleah. Lots of tea and coughdrops.

I also did something that I sometimes do when a cold gets on top of me... I played Metroid. Yup, the original. I bought one of the re-release NES systems and a Metroid catridge about six years ago. It cost around $35, all told, which is a reasonable price for a game. Metroid is still fun after all these years! A landmark in video game history.

(And I died in front of the mother brain, dammit. First death.)

damn mother brain keeps killing me in Metroid Zero Mission on my gameboy. If that's possible, it seems even more difficult to kill her than it was in the original.

(and in THEORY, if I can manage to finally do that, i can unlock the original Metroid in portable form. If, as I said, I can manage to do that. which so far I have not.)

I've been in denial, other than drinking gallons of juice and noticing how sore my throat is. And of course this afternoon when I came home to cook and found that standing up was far more challenging than usual and that lying down seemed a far more sensible course of action. Hence, the lost con crud case isn't mine.

You don't have any of the Super Mario Bros perchance, do you? Much with the dangerness. >;-)

Yeah, I'm a metroid Fanatic. Of course, I suck at the Original Metroid. But all the others I rock at.... Loved Metroid Zero (Yah, Mother Brain was a b'*. Just got Metroid Echoes, can't wait to play it, unfortunately it's sitting a few hundred miles south while I'm up at the 'rents for turkey day.

Oh! By the way Nico, just found your email address sitting in my wallet, will send you pics soon (now that my dad just took some pictures at a game he visited, that is).

Mmmmm...old Nintendo games...

I recently played through A Link to the Past and Final Fantasy II (IV in Japan) on an emulator. Good stuff.

As a poor, deprived child who never owned a Nintendo, I'd love to hear suggestions for other good NES or SNES games I can go check out...

Ahh, Con Crud(tm). I think I get it more than I don't. Oh well, it's nice to have a couple sick days off after a con ;)

Crudless Rat

I managed to avoid PCC (Post Con Crud), but I do have a case of PCD. It's rare that we can all get together and have fun as the animals we are. :o(

It was good to spend some time chatting with you this year. I tried to make an effort to spend time with all the rodents there, and for the most part, I succeeded. My major regret was not having my suit done in time, and be able to roam around rattily...

See ya next time!
