Blue’s Rant #1

So i’m calling this blue’s rant #1 because in the last one i didn’t really talk about what i wanted to. i expressed displeasure in the Wii U, but that’s not really what i intended it to be about. i had other things in mind, things i’ll talk about here, but the other one got to be so long that i didn’t want to introduce a new subject. and now that i say that, this one will probably be even longer.

But anywho, i’d like to just talk about things that come to mind here, starting with why i have started to use bold so much. You see, i write things the way that I would want to read them. but not everyone would read them the same way. sometimes i intend on emphasizing a part of a story, and it changes how you would see the story if you read it the wrong way. Let me explain with the following sentence:
“Then I pressed the red button.”

as it is, this is a simple sentence. but maybe i want to imply:

“Then i pressed the red button.”

That there was some event that happened before i could press the button, like dialing a code. Meanwhile,

“Then I pressed the red button.”

would imply someone else pressed the button before me. Or

“Then I pressed the red button”

could mean that i was doing something else with the button, like pulling on it, or spinning it, or licking it. Wait. Well, I think you get the idea.

Before i move to something else, tho, i thought i would post one of the first commercials for one of nintendo’s most beloved ips. it’s so horrific that i actually questioned how anyone even bought the first game.

Don’t you just love white people?

but back to the rant, theres something I’ve been noticing for quite a while now. Everyone knows Peach and Seth, right? Right. And if either of you are uncomfortable with the following, feel free to edit it. Peach is known as peachsupreme on wordpress, deviantart, and gmail. Seth is known as Sethimine on WordPress, deviantart, gmail, minecraft, skype, and i even remember that was his name on runescape back when it was popular (way back). But what am i known as? bluecreature44 on wordpress, coldryanman on deviantart, galihadtdt on skype and minecraft, and i have 2 email accounts, artinforyan on gmail, which is now totally defunct because it got hacked by china and i just deleted it for the second time, and rnclmn4 on gmail, which i will use until it gets hacked by some other country.

Why is it that they only go by one name and i go by so many different ones? Am I just cursed to never be known as a singular entity, and people will constantly have to strain themselves to remember who I am elsewhere? Trust me, I want to go by just one name. i just don’t know which one. So, let me explain most of the names I have created.

artinfoRyan was the email i made when i thought that was what i would be doing on the blog, writing info on famous artists. Turns out thats incredibly boring, so when i made my wordpress account i picked something else instead. apparently we would all be assigned colors and animals, so i wanted to be a blue monster like sully on monsters inc or something. Hence, Blue Creature 44. (4 was my favorite number, and bluecreature4 was taken) of course, now i’m a rabbit, which is even better than what i had in mind. My new email was an attempt at having a more professional email address by using my own name(withought the vowels) and of course the number 4.

on deviantart i am coldryanman because i was creating an account in order to post some artwork i had made at my high school. Bluecreature44 was taken, so i just decided to pick a name that suited me. coldman and coldryanman are what my friends call me at high school, so i went with that. turns out blucreature44 had been take by none other than myself (silly me) and i had never used it. the memory of my doing this was completely missing until i found a slip of paper in my room with the words: Deviant Login; bluecreature44; *password* on it. now all of my art is on coldryanman, so i just used the other account to comment on my own main page as myself from the past.

Also, Galihadtdt is my only name that is used on more than one thing, but i hate it. get it away. it’s too long of a story, but i will tell you its the name “Galihad” followed by the initials “TDT”, meaning, Seth, that it is not read as”Galihadit” or “Galihadutudut”

A funfact if you are interested: i was runeqet on runescape  and cartdad on club penguin. dont even ask me why. and speaking of club penguin, what is the nacho penguins still doing on the top of the page?

Bluecreature’s Rant

Hey all, i haven’t posted in quite a long time, mostly because i’ve never had anything to write about. I still don’t, really.

However, I was just looking at Nintendo’s new video game console release at E3, the WiiU, and saw a lot of things wrong with it. And absolutely no one seems to care. so i decided i would write about that. And write a lot. But i don’t want to just write about that, either. I kind of want to get a routine going, where i show you all what the world looks like through my eyes. We’ll call this Bluecreature’s Rant.

But on to the WiiU. Like any new console release, the announced games seem like a mixed bag. Pikmen 3 looks pretty amazing, even though i have absolutely no experience in the series, while ZombiU (i think that’s how you spell it) looks absolutely and awesomely  terrifying. Gameplay may not be great, though. I’ll get to that later. Meanwhile, Tanks! Tanks! Tanks! may look cool, but is almost exactly the same as the arcade game of the same name released in 2009. I’m not even going to try to rate New Super Mario Bros. U, the fourth installment of the New series. Oh, and don’t forget about Batman: Arkham City: Armoured Edition! The amazing features of this rereleased game are the ability to change your armor using the WiiU’s new touchscreen controller, being able to control the trajectory of the batarang, and making boatloads of cash for the people who spent like 5 minutes converting the game to a new console. But I don’t want to be stuck ranting on batman. It’s a good game, after all. Why would you not want to make twice as much money on it as you should have?

What I really wanted to talk about is the new controller for the WiiU. It’s a touchscreen, I mentioned that. But that doesn’t matter. We’ve had those for years. What matters is that it even has a screen at all. For instance, on ZombiU, the tv screen depicts the player in first person shooter mode, looking for zombies. that’s fine, everything’s good so far. But down on the controller screen is the map of the whole area, the ability to switch weapons and execute commands.

This is bad, as some studies have shown that the average human brain that multitasks on two things at the the same time only retain 10% percent per item of what their focus would have been if they were only focusing on one thing. the other 80% goes to the constant switching of gears beween the two. This new controller completely takes your eyes off the game and adds fake pressure to the gameplay.  Let me explain: if you need to pull out a better weapon to obliterate a zombie army, you have to look down at the controller and look away from the army of zombies and find that better weapon on the screen in order to use it. If you’ve just killed that army of zombies and you want to look at the map to see of there are more around the corner, you have to look away from the tv, giving the perfect opportunity for a zombie to pop out from around the corner and tear you to bits.

It’s as if your new car has one square foot of front window while the rest is this awesome-looking metal, but to make up for it the designers gave you this handy tablet with a feed from a camera attached to the front of the car, so you must look down at your lap to tell whether or not you’re about to run into a semi.

Anyways, no one else seems to care about these features (and quite a few others) that would just make this console a worse version of the wii. It almost seems like Nintendo needs to replace the wii. I mean, the wii is still the newest gaming console, right? the xbox 360 hasn’t been replaced… nor the playstation 3. they have no real need to make a new game system. except to make money, of course.

And we’re not counting either of these.
