Clash of the Titans - Round 2


Remember this? After that most awesome of matches (despite the horrible lag), a rematch was bound to happen sooner or later, and yesterday was the day. After a previous a agreement on the day and time (you know, because we're busy people, we're not online 24/7), there I was, logging into Xbox Live at about 2:00 in the afternoon. Father K was online, but when I saw that he was playing Halo 3 I figured that it should be one of the gingers. No problem, it gave me some time to train my moves. Father would come shortly after, and when he did we started playing right away. Guess what, the first round was mine! Hehe, guess that training really did the difference. We were still pretty balanced, though, and overall Father probably won a couple more matches than I did. He was a bit cheap at times, though... (sorry Father, but I had to say this, those successions of punches should be prohibited xD).


Anyway, this was not a matter of winning or losing, but a moment of leisure between two friends separated by lots of land and even ocean. There was absolutely no lag this time, so not only we could play without that handicap, but we were also able to have a proper conversation! It was like talking on the phone, really, but while playing at the same time, and it was great. Now that I think of it, we really talked a lot (it was my strategy to distract Father and kick his ass xD), from games, to the origins of our respective nicknames and pretty much everything we could think of while still throwing virtual kicks and punches.


Also, it was not just a thing between us, for we eventually dragged our families into it. My mum passed by to say "hello" and the littlest ginger, Ted, even played with me, although he was at a disadvantage for not being used to play as Kage. By the way, funny how we pronounce that name differently, Father says Kage as in "cage" while I pronounce it "Kágê", like the Japanese do (by the way, "kage" means "shadow", appropriate name for a ninja). It's just a curiosity, since we were able to understand each other just fine for most of the time, although I would sometimes get too excited and speak so fast that even I wouldn't understand what the fuck I just said, lol.



By the way, this time we saved a lot of replays to show you guys, but unfortunately my cell phone's camera couldn't keep up with the game's speed and this was the best I could get. Maybe Father will have more luck with his high-tech phone.

Also, when you think about it, technology really is amazing. 10 years ago we were playing VF1 and 2 alone in our homes, without having the slightest hint that the other one existed and that we would someday meet on the web and play VF5 together. Fucking amazing, isn't it?

It must be cool to be able to talk to fatherk...that would be awesome! :P

Maybe one day when he gets a PS3, we might be able to converse! LOL!

I'm not sure, do you have a PS3 neb, or just 360?

FUNNYMAN disse...

Just get a 360, and you can play him junlee.

Junlee disse...

If and/or when I ever do get a 360, it won't be anytime soon. Me tight on cash right now!

Well, if and/or when I ever do get a PS3, it won't be anytime soon. Me tight on cash right now! :D

Ok, seriously now, no, I don't have a PS3, and unfortunately won't be able to afford one anytime soon. That sucks because I'm really looking forward to play MGS4 and Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm. Meh, in the meantime I'm playing MGS3: Subsistence and Naruto: Ultimate Ninja 3, so I'll be entertained for a while.

Junlee disse...

Yeah I feel ya neb. Back when I got a PS3, my bank account was looking quite lovely. Now it's just shit!

FUNNYMAN disse...

Don't be such a cheap Ginger.

Junlee disse...

To be cheap, I have to have the money but not want to spend it. That's not the case though because I don't have the money right now! :P

FUNNYMAN disse...

Simple solution to a simple problem. Sell your internal organs on ebay. Then you will have the money. Come on Ginger. You have to spend, spend, spend.

Junlee disse...

Yes yes, that will do me just fine. I'm sure then I'll be enjoying the 360 something serious with all of my internal organs gone.

dxvolt disse...

Great game :) I will get this soon and want to make a match with Neba my friend :)
( I just hope if SF IV comes soon...)
Thanks for the vid of the carnage...

FUNNYMAN disse...

That is the spirit. Now, you are getting it. It took you long enough Ginger.

NebachadnezzaR disse...

Well, why we would we have two kidneys and be able to live only with one if it wasn't to sell the other? xD

Dxvolt, just tell me when you have it, it I still have an XBL gold account by then I'll meet you online :)

blondejon disse...

NebachadnezzaR disse...

Blondejon! How great to see you here in my humble place of awesomeness! :D

DEITRIX disse...

I hope Huxley lives up to the hype... That way we all could be playing together and talking at the same time...
I think you even get living quarters and cities in that one.

When I get time I will have to get on Live.
