Out of the Blue

We had a pretty serious thunderstorm last night, a very unusual event for late November in the northeast, when a blizzard would be more expected. I spent a couple of hours comforting Hudson the wonder dog as the storms always freak her out, and the poor thing was shaking from head to toe. Now I get to learn the pain of trying to get over a sleep-deprived night without the benefit of coffee. Ouch.

I had both the joystick and fastload cartridge:

I vaguely remember the joystick being unreliable, I recall spending most of the time using a more classic joystick with four suckers on the bottom. As for the fastload cartridge, I don't think it worked with Microprose games, so I rarely used it.

Goddamn, this sounds awesome...but it's to the point now where my expectations are so high, I fear it won't meet them. Not because it won't be good, but because it sounds/looks so amazing, from what I've seen.

In the same boat. I have avoided most of the stuff, as I want to really enjoy it.....want it to be good....PLEASE BE GOOD!!!!

Tron Legacy looks fucking awesome, but one thing REALLY bothered me, and that was the speed at which the lightcycles moved. I mean, come on, fellas, these things are supposed to be zooming around at the equivalent of 300mph. In the one lightcycle video that I saw, they were going about 35mph.

Lightcycles aren't impressive if they're going at Grandma In Her Buick speeds...

Still, I can't even put into words how excited I am for Legacy.

Daft Punk doing the score is just icing on the cake.

Didnt drink a single cup today, I feel like total shit.....

That's call withdrawal. You'll get over by day two, and then you'll feel very good being caffeine free.

Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout, "Do your worst, for I will do mine!"

Down by me in NJ we had rain; nothing too heavy but definitely more than a drizzle.

But all of a sudden there was a very loud boom, not a nearby crack of thunder but a heavy-bass roar. It caught me off guard as I'd checked the weather map around then and only saw green for rain, no yellow/red usually associated with thunderstorms. My brother joked that it was either thunder or something blew up.

We had a little bit of thunder sometime afterwards, but it was quiet and you could barely hear it unless we opened the outside door.

I agree that in late November this isn't exactly the norm.
