Christmas, Horror & Christmas Horror!

To commence, merry Christmas and all that jazz. This post is well overdue, as I’ve been slack with my posts the last few days. I’m sitting on the end of my bed being accosted by a very lovey cat who gets horribly clingy when it’s ‘bed time,’ or at least the second I join him on the bed.

If you’ve never seen nor heard of Kingdom Hospital I encourage horror fans to look into it; I also recently stumbled across a fun podcast while waiting for “We’re Alive” (the zombie podcast I reviewed a while ago) takes it’s sweet time with an update. It’s classic old radio plays of horror stories!

It’s called Tales of Horror, it’s free and on iTunes in the podcast section, or for non apple folks click here: http://www.google.com/search?q=Tales+of+Horror+podcast&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&client=safari

I broke 2k gamer points on xbox which was fun and well overdue, I realized I was playing the same games daily–not that I don’t still play them and think them awesome–but Forza 3, Assassins Creed 2 and L4D2 consumed most of my gaming, even World of Warcraft hasn’t been touched in so long my mail is probably auto deleting as I type this losing me tens of thousands of gold pieces! D:

I started playing FEAR, cool game, but the plot is very j-horror and thus doesn’t really suit a western mindset horror fan as creepy little kids and freak out effects don’t make me wet myself. It’s fun, challenging, and I’m one of those tards who always get lost / don’t know where to go or what to do next.

Prince Caspian is another I’ve been playing, it’s from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe famed Narnia series in case you’re from some deep jungle tribe (speaking of, I watched 30 minutes of Attenborough interacting with the Biami tribe who had never met white men and use a 12 base calculating system and share no common words other than nouns with other locals!) and the game play is unbecoming. It’s like Assassins Creed 2 minus parkour, minus assassins, minus creed … but it has a lot of cut scenes from the movie at least?

Ice Age 3 is another I’ve been playing a lot, it and Prince Caspian are identical in every way, although IA3 has parkour like AC2; albeit an animated lullzy style. It too shares the marginally interactive movie (ie: button mash for five minutes between five minute cut scenes!) but is a good no brainer to play, and Scratte + Sid sloth == AMUSED! You get to play both of them too!

I’m wearing a beanie with cat ears and a cat skull motif on the front, suddenly my lovey cat is wide eyed and won’t come near me. This is brilliant, no rubbing in my face tonight!

So, I’m curious. What did you, my dear readers, get for Christmas and what’ve you been up to? I think one of my most awesome gifts are a snazzy pair of mooks sunnies and a car polisher (because everyone knows I’m anal retentive about my car and try to keep it in show car standard) along with a crapload of xbox games which will be keeping me out of trouble for some time.

I have, however, eaten far more than I can take. I cooked Christmas dinner on a BBQ for my family, and didn’t even touch what I cooked opting for more light food stuffs, but familial peer pressure has led to gluttony and god knows I need to get back into working out daily until this one-pack ab I’m sporting pisses off.

I managed to cruise through the Christmas break so far without hitting a police check point; lucky because I’m still suspended and the second a cop stops me and runs my license I’m done for and will be facing six months suspension in court. :/

I got caught speeding between 10-15kph over the limit twice in three years; that’s how unreasonable road laws are in New South Wales, Australia. Even the government admitted it was unreasonable, with 15% of all drivers currently suspended, 1:3 drivers having no license, and almost every case in local and district court being vehicle related–they even released details on the new road rules–but they haven’t brought them in, and probably won’t because they’re spineless and make more from fines / public transport usage!

Anyway, this is all tl;dr and I’m sure only a handful of you have read this far. So to reward your reader loyalty I’m going to attach a picture of myself naked here … okay, I’m lying, but you’re awesome! <3

AC2 Treasure & Feathers Guide

Treasure I understand, feathers … not so much, but regardless, Assassins Creed 2 is a collect-a-thon of rubbish to make the game gods happy, many of which are a mongrel to find unless you have a map. Treasure maps you can buy in game, but feather maps are a dime a dozen and most are incorrect. Below is a compilation of the most accurate maps I’ve found (hand verified dozens from each map) and should make your adventures in medieval Italy much less daunting.

I still find the whole parkour thing amusing, but at the same time terrifying due to the whole heights thing. I’m one of those lamers who twitch, or duck IRL when my character does something similar in game unfortunately, so something like Assassins Creed 2 drives me nuts! 😛

Anyway, good huntin’!
