Videogames, the taste of donuts, etc.

Why the random topic? Because I got nothing. At the moment the only things on my mind are the video game I just played and the taste of a glazed donut. Neither are really important in any way. The video game is a racing game that I don’t know the name of, which is a good thing because it’s not exactly awesome. The game physics suck, mostly. I mean, how can you possibly hit another car going at over 100 mph and be able to just keep racing? Shouldn’t be possible. Even if it is a video game.  But the thing with this game is that it doesn’t show damage of any kind. It doesn’t matter if you frigging flip the car, it’ll just flip back over without any sign of the massive damage that would have been inflicted if the video game was realistic. This bothers me, but only a little. I’ve played racing games with realistic damage and for me the object became to see how badly I could mess up the car, and what I would need to do to it. Basically, I would try to crash deliberately, but  also creatively. At least one game had the object of causing damage to the cars around you, so that made for some epic crash scenes. Also fun was pausing it at a moment during the epic crash scene. You could rotate it, so that way you could view the epic carnage from all sides. Supreme fun, that.  I’m not great at racing games though. I’m not great at video games of any genre, mostly because I don’t play as much as I used to. I’m out of practice. I don’t think that’s any excuse for how badly I fail at Halo though. I’m quite bad. I die nearly every minute. However, in my defense, I am not used to the gameplay in Halo. I’m used to games like Ninja Gaiden, or at least Ninja Gaiden is easier for me. Haven’t beat it yet, but I do like it. Maybe it’s the idea that I mostly only  need to mash buttons mindlessly in Ninja Gaiden, and in Halo I need a strategy of some kind. Plus, mashing buttons mindlessly in Halo tends to get me killed.

The Taste of Donuts

I had glazed donut few minutes ago. I like donuts, generally, especially the glazed ones. This one didn’t taste as nice I’d hoped though. It was nice, but not the nice I was used to. I’m half wondering if putting it in the microwave is what made the difference.  I also wondering if I’ve just gotten sick of glazed donuts. I imagine I shall have to run some test to find out. I should get a box of glazed donuts and see how it goes…


Top Gear is amusing this evening.  Geoff is passing all the tests!

Next Time: Will there be more Top Gear? Shall the blogger who doesn’t do blogs share their opinion on The Stig’s vegetarian cousin?
