Battlefield 1942

Well, after hearing my brother-in-law was a hardcore Battlefield 1942 player still, I decided to pick it up so he could experience my wrath. I also pulled in a few friends (Ken and Doug). I finally got it installed and even played a quick round this afternoon to get used to the controls. So – if you still play this old, but good game, I will be playing under the screen name of [beckett]. (Thomas Beckett)

Jappler Recommends: McDonalds' Online Monopoly Game

If there is one thing I absolutely love about McDonalds (besides their superior Coke mixture) I love their Monopoly game. I even dreamt about the game a few nights ago that I pulled off Park Place and Boardwalk from the same Coke…and won $246. With that said – the excitement of pulling off the little game pieces from my medium Coke and putting them onto the board is usually enough to make me smile. I happened to have a pile of pieces at my house (maybe 6) and decided to go online and check out their “online Monopoly game“. When I first got to the page – I was instantly frustrated. My #21 pet peeve in life happens to be sites that resize my browser window. However, after I resize it back to how I wanted it – I was blown away with the coolness of the site. I entered in my name and information, and then started to play. It was cool, intense, and well done (and my #12 pet peeve in life is overdone flash). I look forward to playing soon! If you have not checked this out – do it! (This means you Julie)

*For the most fun, wait until you have 5 pieces – each piece = roll of the dice.

back playing socom ii.

It has been at least a year – probably 2 since I stopped playing SoCom II but a few weeks Doug started playing again and got me interested again. I have to say, playing it on my new TV which is almost twice the size of my old TV is definitely nice. It is equally nice that the same old grumpy men and wannabe 12 year olds are still there to make it interesting. I forgot how much I missed listening to these 2 types of people argue – it is really pretty fun – especially when you have a headset and can add in comments. The online gaming community is an interesting one and I am glad I am back!

frustration station.

Frustation lies everywhere, either you find it or you don’t…I seem to find it a lot, but finally I can laugh at most of it or at least brush it off. (How many years did that take?)
First up…Metra. Boarding my express train is like a Rage Against the Machine video and Metra finally did something about it, they no longer open the first two cars for people at my stop. It finally came to that. I think the older you get, the more rage you have boarding trains, and then comment and waive your fingers at the “out of control kids”.

Second…SoCom. I love SoCom, but get over that I am a girl and that I am good. I do not want to join your clan, and do not ask me how much I weigh or my hair color. Do you think I am interested in someone who plays SoCom all day? I barely like myself! 😉

Third we have that one person, who will remain nameless, that regardless of what others say, they always take credit. Me: I think this, that….Them 10 minutes later: Well I think this, that. Really. Thanks for playing, but unless you have a time delay in hearing and processing, I just said that 10 minutes earlier.

Is it time for a vacation? That sounds about right.

literati

I never played Scrabble until earlier this year, but I have become completely hooked to Yahoo! literati. I think part of the fun is getting the great words that happen to work such as: dui, ka, cos, coz, zee, cee, etc. The words are supposedly checked by dictionary.com so who knows…maybe it is not an english dictionary. , I am thinking we are on the verge of a new English dialect, iBonics. So if you want to learn something new, join me in a game of literati, where iBonics is accepted! Literati supports all iBonics speakers!

SOCom II And The Art of Crossroads

I am hooked on SoCom II I just recently started my own clan [T2] and try to get an hour or so in almost everyday to maintain my rank as a LT Commander…someday I will be a Captain. The headset in this game makes it because all my teammates and opponents get to hear that they are getting beat by a girl. Is it time to play yet? The secret on Crossroads…rush the bomb before your opponent does and if I am a terrorist, do not come near the warehouse. I will take your whole team out.
