#17899 KG Smash Bros. Dojo!

Posted by Dekrem on 20 November 2007 - 12:02 PM in Video James

Hmm...Bob-ombs and Smart Bombs on "Very High"...Mmm...

The training mode was also mentioned today, and it looks...pretty much the same as before. I was expecting it'd allow a different character for each CPU, and maybe a during-play character-switch option. But from the screenshots, that doesn't seem to be the case. I guess I'll just restart matches in Vs. Mode again...



#16276 Happy B-Day Big Wario!

Posted by Dekrem on 05 November 2007 - 11:26 PM in Grooseland Talk Radio

Crap, checked in a day late. But you better have enjoyed yourself, young man! *wags finger*



#16270 Last Night's Dream!

Posted by Dekrem on 05 November 2007 - 11:22 PM in Grooseland Talk Radio

Nice! I started writing a dream journal about 3 weeks ago, so I actually remember some of my dreams now.

So I'm in this supermarket, and I buy some chocolate milk and cereal.

And then I go back to the supermarket on a different day.

I know, it's so exciting, am I right!?

Anyway, the second time I'm in the store, I buy more cereal, and a ticket to a concert. I get held up at the cashier by a French guy who mumbles a lot, and kinda looks like this guy:



I give him the cereal and ticket and it turns out I accidentally got two. [insert more excitement]

One of them turns out to be an "extension" requested by the leader of the rock band holding the concert. The French cashier explains that a few of the members of the band left for no reason, and took the leader's car, resulting in the extended ticket.



I've come to realize that my dreams make no sense.

Gah! They laugh at me!

#15143 Study Habits and how you prepare for school

Posted by Dekrem on 27 October 2007 - 04:18 PM in Grooseland Talk Radio

I use a lot of visualization for memorizing things. It takes a lot of work on the forefront, but if I made the associated scene wacky enough, I'll only need to look through it once a week to keep it fresh.

Example:S = E x B /

S is called the Poynting vector, so I started off with an image of Family Guy's pointing monkey:

E and B I interpreted as the initials of Encyclopedia Brown...

...so I continue the image with the monkey poking Encyclopedia Brown with excessive force, sending him flying somewhere.

E and B are also the numerator of a fraction, so I have Encyclopedia Brown land on top of some elevated platform.

, or "mu" is the sound a cat makes, so I imagine a cat walking underneath the platform, suddenly growing several times its size...



...then eating Encyclopdia Brown.


Like I said before, outrageousness makes for easier memorization for me. And with practice, the process of coming up with association images becomes quicker.


I've also read about another way to memorize lists by memorizing the layout of a building like your house or dorm, mentally walking through your building, and imagining objects associated with what you want to memorize throughout the building. I haven't tried it myself, but I imagine it's similar to what I do. In any case, this article gives a good description.

Hope that's useful to someone.

Holy snap, that's 23 characters now. I hope the game still has hidden, unlockable characters left over by the release.



#14177 When does Optimism become Unreasonable?

Posted by Dekrem on 18 October 2007 - 10:58 AM in Grooseland Talk Radio

I don't know. But it's not when this happens:

Optimism is awesome.



#13820 The Tongues Have Eyes

Posted by Dekrem on 14 October 2007 - 06:50 PM in Grooseland Talk Radio

http://abcnews.go.co...=2401551&page=1

It's a mechanism that allows the blind to sense objects' distance through their tongues. Extremely neato.

Oh my freaking fudgecake...

Sonic's here.



All I have to say is holy crapola...

...in my granola...

...with coca-cola...

...in a box of Crayola...


This will certainly be interesting.



#11604 Siblings

Posted by Dekrem on 29 September 2007 - 05:00 PM in Grooseland Talk Radio

I have an older brother, 26. Never felt really close to him; not because he's a jerk or anything, more because I've never been willing to feel close to family in general. But we hang out whenever he's home for the weekend and I'm home on vacation, so, I don't know, it's stuff.



#11602 Phantom Hourglass thread

Posted by Dekrem on 29 September 2007 - 04:52 PM in The Lelda of Zelda

I first need my DS with me instead of 3 hours away...and a working AC adaptor...and time to play it...and blaaahhhh...



#9753 Favorite Smash Bros Character(s)

Posted by Dekrem on 19 September 2007 - 10:07 PM in Video James

SSB: Um, I think it was either Kirby or Link.
SSBM:Plenty of choices here. Dr. Mario or Mario (one-on-one or melee, respectively), Capt. Falcon, Young Link/Link (one/melee), and Roy. But I've never been spectacular with any one of them.
SSBB: Not sure who'll become my favorite of course, but I'll want to try Meta Knight first.

And inhibited communication is still the "best" part of their Wi-Fi. Wonderful.

Customizable privacy settings, please.



#9134 Longest Thread in the World is Getting There...

Never! *lets go*

*falls to death*

Owie.



#8782 KG Smash Bros. Dojo!

Posted by Dekrem on 14 September 2007 - 10:41 AM in Video James

Hmm...I guess that's because they have a unique style, or just that they come from a game no other characters are a part of. I guess we can expect Game & Watch back, too, then.



#8770 Group Hug!

Posted by Dekrem on 14 September 2007 - 06:43 AM in Grooseland Talk Radio

*hugs things*

#8768 What...the...hell....

People are funny.



#8687 Joke I got from a friend

Posted by Dekrem on 13 September 2007 - 08:07 AM in Grooseland Talk Radio

I was expecting her to dump a bag of Hershey kisses on the counter...But I suppose yours works too... Tongue.gif



#8682 KG Smash Bros. Dojo!

Posted by Dekrem on 13 September 2007 - 06:11 AM in Video James

Okay, this is the first update in a while that has me excited. All these assist trophy updates...I'd rather wait until I play the game ('course, I'd have to actually get a Wii first) to find out who's there, and players can get pumped up trying to figure out if they've seen them all yet.

Special Brawl is definitely something I'm looking forward to.



#8188 Words don't suffice...

Posted by Dekrem on 09 September 2007 - 08:41 AM in Grooseland Talk Radio

Heheheheheheheh...that was ridiculous.

I guess this movie's just one of those love/hate deals...



#8022 Last game you bought

Posted by Dekrem on 08 September 2007 - 08:24 AM in Video James

Umm...

...Hmm...

...TP...and...

...nothing after that. Come Christmas, I celebrate 1 year without buying a game...no, wait, TP was a gift, so...hmm...

*more dots*

Bah, I can't remember. More than a year, I guess.
