PC Games / Re: Most Humiliating Defeat\Death\Game Over etc.

I have tried this so many times...
In the Terren Campaign in starcraft there's a scenerio where you have to survive for 15 minutes. just 15 minutes... The first time i played it i didn't know what to expect so i took it easy. Figured i'd just stay where i was and casually make units... every once in a while a zerg creature would come in and attack but ussually i would over come it. I kept thinking, "I can do this, this is easy!"

then about 10 minutes in, a huge barrage of zergs just comes and keep coming and it was just sad. I kept putting up as much defence as i possibly could and getting my butt whupped.
Every time i've played i keep trying harder and harder, making more units, putting them at stratigic defence points. eigther way i still get killed horribly.
The last unit was ussually defeated with about 3 minutes left on the clock.

*The entire state of Idaho is ejected into space.*


(you forgot to say "i'm going into the story".)

I walked down the hall keeping my eyes open for a staircase or elevator. I kept looking over my shoulder to make sure i wasn't being followed by anything i wouldn't want following me.

Suddenly i heard a ding in the distance behind me. I heard elevator doors open. I decided to hurry up. I went faster. I started to hear far away footsteps. I looked behind me but saw nothing. I walked faster. The footsteps got closer and louder. I broke into a run. The footsteps sounded only a few yards behind me. I saw a door for a staircase just a little ahead of me. I started sprinting. I looked behind me. There was nothing there that i could see, yet i could hear footsteps. I kept running.
I was about to open the door to the stairs when Something lunged on me throwing me to the ground. I turned myself around to see my attacker, Yet i saw nobody.  I felt weight on me though so i punched at it and threw it off.

I realized then my attacker must be invisible. I ran to the stairs and ran down. The door shut behind me. I ran down the next flight when i heard it open.

CNN:  This Just In--- President settles Middle East Trouble over Marathon LAN party

*Bursts out laughing.

While i worried about the horrors that could possibly await me on level 222 I worried more of what that thing might do to my friends.

218. just a few more floors. I let out a sigh.

Suddenly i realized that i didn't have to go to floor 222. I hit floor 220 just in time for the elevator to stop.
"My gosh i'm stupid." I thought to myself for not realizing this earlier.
The doors opened and i walked into a hallway. not too diffrent from the one i was in earlier. Whatever they had in mind for me wasn't going to happen.
Although the hall didn't look too diffrent then the other one, it felt diffrent. It felt calmer. possibly a little safer. I realized i couldn't just press the down button and get back into the elevator. It was going to stop at 222 before it came back down and whatever was on that floor could climb in and be waiting for me in the elevator. If i pressed the call button it would be a dead giveaway what floor i stopped at.

I decided to go looking for another elevator. or a staircase. But first i needed to get something to eat.
I was famished. even though i wasn't truly physically here i supposed that I needed to keep from starving if I don't want to die in the game.
I wondered if their were any mini bars in the hotel rooms. then again, the doors could just lead to death traps. Eigther way, i was hungry. I decided to open the door. I reached for the door knob hoping it was unlocked and it was.
I was shocked when i found myself staring at...A hotel room. An actual hotel room. And a fairly nice one. Not "Suite" nice, but nice. I walked in and found a light switch. I turned it on. The room lit up nicely. Eigther Lemurbouy had done all the rooms like this or i was just extreamly lucky. I found the minibar right under the tv. I was going to see what channels you could possibly get in the future in a hotel in a video game. but i decided to stay focused. Time was not on our side. I opened the mini bar and saw some nice things. A can of pringles. Some assorted candy, some fruit juice bottles.
I took the pringles and a few candy bars. i assumed the other guys might be getting hungry. we didn't need any thing to drink since we had the tea.
I stuffed the stuff in my pockets which i had noticed were very deep. I wondered if this game had some sort of inventory system...
I then went into the hall to look for a way to get downstairs.

fine, you don't have to respect her, you can respect whoever you want, forget i said anything and let's just drop it...

There's a post in "Everything else" about NBC News talking about it. I guess the media and general public has made up its mind who's fault it was...

Spore: Creation Corner / Re: Your first creature?
« on: July 14, 2005, 08:36:12 am »
First creature? I've had

As i entered the pool room, i couldn't sake the feeling something was wrong.
I saw the pool. It was a huge pool. It was right in the center of the room. I noticed right in the center of the pool was something shimmering. I looked closely. It was the ring!
I turned around.
"Guys! The ring!" I said with excitement. "Its in The pool!"
I was happy that we had found it. and so easily. Still there was something wrong.
"Wait a minute." I thought. "There was a lot of light soming through the windows. but syphonbyte said it was dark out."
I knew we couldn't have been talking for that long with the man in the sky lobby. Something strange was going on outside.
I told my concerns to my friends.
"I'm going into the hall to see what's up."  i said.
I noticed a small step ladder and took it on my way out.
When i got to a window, i set up the ladder.
I climbed up and was about to look out.
"My gosh its bright." I thought.
suddenly i felt something push me off the ladder.
I fell off and got the wind knocked out of me, but outside of that i was okay.
I looked around for what pushed me.
Right by the ladder i saw some odd clear blobs pulsating. They started to approch me i backed up to the door of the elevator. They stopped just before they got to me. Then one of them started to change, shape and form. It got more solid and more human shaped.
I noticed it was gaining facial features. They looked fermilliar. When it was finally done i realized why. The face, the body, the clothes, it was me.
I, or i mean my copy, walked over to the elevator and pressed the button to call it up.
I tried to think of something to say.
"Um..." were the first words that came out. And it turned to look at me.
I then thought of something more useful to say.
"sorry if this is a rude question, but, what are you?"
"I'm you." it said. "Or at least close enough that they'll never be able to tell the diffrence."
I heard the elevator open behind me.
With an amazingly light effort, he or it, whatever you would call something that just shaped into you. was able to through me into the elevator. My back hit the wall with a thud. This time i was in much more pain then getting knocked off the step ladder.
"Help!" I wheesed out, trying to catch my breath and get up at the same time.
"Is something you won't be getting." It said.
Before i had a chance to get to my feet, it pressed the button for floor 222 and then hit close door. It drew its hand out fast. and the elevator doors slammed shut. The elevator started moving.

For all she's been able to get through? She's the ex-President's daughter, how hard must it have been for her? And let me re-phrase your statement. There are two kinds of people in the world, those that like Hilary Clinton, and those who loathe the girl.

Daughter? Are we talking about the same Hillary? I mean the wife! the one that is currently the senitor of ny. (The one that was cheated on, but able to get their marrage to work even after Bill acted like a creep. And then was able to run and win a high politicial office. the first former 1st lady to ever hold a political office.) She's gotten through some tough times...

(and eigther way you have to respect her for all she's been able to get though)
I happen to like her.

Anyway, from what i drew from the article, she's only looking to find out who's responsible for the mod.

9.4 this time, because that slogan thing is so cool.

As refreshed as i felt I still couldn't shake the feeling that something was amiss on the ride up. The errieness of the glow off the buttons of the elevator with no other light to be found moved me out of the more calm mood i had felt talking with the man in the sky lobby. I looked up a little and noticed that the elevator showed what floors we were passing. we were already on floor 130. it wouldn't be too long until we went into who knows what on the 208th floor. I looked around at the perky faces on everyone. Had they let their guard down? I certainly hoped not. Everyone needed to stay alert if we were going to get out of this alive. 160. We were moving really fast...

The people on the sims 2 board didn't seem very intrested in this but i decided to see what you guys thought about it.

I went searching for a little while and dug up an intresting nugget of info.
When maxis made simcity for the Snes (Super nintendo Entertainment System) the advisor for the mayor was the green, big haired Dr.Wright named after of course the game's creator "Will wright" (i think it looks a little like Groucho Marx in a wig.)
Seen here:
This is his last apparence in a sim city game for a while.
The next few time he appears it is in Zelda games. Suprisingly.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, in 1993 for gameboy, was his next apparence. His name was altered a little to Dr.Write.
Seen here:
Still sporting his famous big hair. When you enter his house, the music playing in the backround is a remix of the main music from the Snes SimCity.

His next apperance was back in a sim city game.
in the early 90's nintendo got the rights to develope their own console versions of the game.
they made Sim City 64 for the N64 in 2000. (the only entirly 3D sim city game. unfortunatly i believe it only came out it japan.  )
Seen here:
I could find no shots of him in there online but i found out that he is in there.
Dr.Wright again appered of course as the friendly advisor.

Next seen in The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (2001 Gameboy Color) As Dr.Left (cute nintendo humor )
Seen here:
Again sporting his Big hair. In Color this time.

His next apparence was actually as a collectable trophy in Super Smash Bros Melee. (2001. and the game where i actually first found out about him which got me searching)
seen here:
In full beautiful 3d and with his name restored to normal. If you have the game, next to it is a couple paragraphs about it and how its named after the creator of sim city. (if only he were avalible as a playble fighting

His final apparence so far is actually back in the most recent zelda game for GBA
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (2005 GBA)
Again as Dr.Left
Seen here:
Sporting the hair and glasses in full color and better graphics.

there you have it! from Will Wright to Dr.Left!
(I wasn't exactly sure what game section to put this in. It doesn't really fit neatly in any. so i settled for here.)

I was releved she was alive.
"Well none of us will be able to leave unless we cross the finish line on the next level." I said. "But we can't do that till we find the ring on this level..."
I had sort of hoped it would just come to us and we wouldn't have to go looking. 290 floors. this was a huge hotel and eerie.
"Say, could you possibly come with us?" I asked the man.
"No. I would be of no help and just as vulnerable as you. lemurbouy has hacked me out of all floors but this one. I've got one entire computer in my house working hard just to keep him from getting me here." he said.
"So we're on our own with this ring buisness?" i asked.
"Well I was able to pinpoint a general area of where the ring would be, earlier. It was before i entered the game. Just incase something happened and i needed to use the finish line to get out." he said
"Where?" I asked.
"Somewhere on floor 208. Recreational facilities." he said
"Rechreational facilities?" I asked.
"The pool, the exercising room, the bar, the arcade, places like that." he said.
"Oh." i said.
I started thinking where would be a good place to start.
"Let's start with the pool." I blurted out.
I don't know why i wanted to start with the pool. I always liked swimming pools i guess. There was also this little voice inside me. It was mine but it was more like my subconcius. I felt i had to go to the pool.
"Off we go." I thought. "Back into the dark hotel..."
