The Wonders of the Grilled Stuffed Burrito
Posted May 2, 2004 - 18:47:46

This is why we get up in the morning - the sky over the riverI'm sitting in the Towers' TV lounge right now, watching Andy play Metal Gear Solid, and taking a break from working on my paper. The photo to the right is one that I took on yesterday's walk, but it looks like that again today.

Watching Metal Gear Solid is better than watching some movies. I'm talking about the first Metal Gear Solid, which is not the first installment in the Metal Gear series by far, but the fist Playstation installment. Numbering gets weird with video games when they go through name changes. Metal Gear Solid 2 is not the second game in the series, but it bears the moniker "2" within the title.

And don't even get me started on the Jedi Knight/Dark Forces series, yeesh. That series has had some of the biggest problems with numbering I have ever seen in my life. It's really, really sad - on many different levels.

At this point, you're probably wondering about the headline - since I've just been talking about video games, and shown you a picture of some clouds. Well, the answer to that is quite simple: I ate a grilled stuffed burrito from Taco Bell for lunch today. I am always a big fan of eating a grilled stuffed burrito for lunch. I swear, with the amount of food that is in one of those, I could easily sustain myself for an entire day if I had to. It doesn't look like it at first glance, but they shove as much crap in there as possible, I swear.

I ran across a very interesting article on the future of videogaming, which can be found here. It's really talking about how games are getting more and more cinematic in their graphics quality, and how that's going to influence gaming. It's a very good read, and if you don't click the link and read it now I'll spank you or something.

Another odd little thing, which I just find kind of interesting, is that an independent developer has released a service pack for Windows 98 SE (you can read about it here). It's kind of weird, as Microsoft isn't the one putting it out. Oddly enough, Microsoft doesn't seem to be complaining about it all that much - just giving their "You're taking risks when you download from someone else", and that's about it. 98SE is outside it's regular service lifetime, only recieving critical patches. This is, well... kind of neat I guess. And that's all I have to say about that.

On that note, I shall return to watching Andy play videogames. Oh yeah, and now the RSS for validates. It didn't before, but now I've fixed it. Huzzah.

And that's all folks.
