I beat Metroid Prime 3 for the Wii yesterday. It was a great game, rather challenging. I can’t seem to think of what to write about it mini-review for it right now. All I can say is, if you play first person shooters and like adventure games, give it a try, even if you’ve never played any of the other Metroid Prime games. The game doesn’t make you feel like you’ve missed out on something except on some of bits with Dark Samus. Playing this game for some reason made me want to make a Metroid movie. I actually wrote a scene for a movie, so who knows, maybe someday I’ll develop it and make a movie staring Samus.
On the subject of game movies, I’ve gotten around 10 people interested in Running Out of Lives so far. We’ll going to have a production meeting probably on the 27th if that works out with everyone. I’m working to get more people into working on the project since not everyone is going to be able to help with every episode. I’m excited and I’m looking forward to the meeting. I’ll let you know how the meeting went of course. I plan to start a production blog for the series once it gets underway.
Let’s see, what else. Yesterday, I did a survey testing a product for an hour and I got paid $50 (I can’t go into details due to an agreement, even though the products might already be on the market). I worried my work a bit as I told them I was leaving to go to an appointment. I was supposed to do the test on Thursday at 4:30, but they put me down on for Friday instead, so I had to leave work an hour early on Friday, which was fine because we weren’t busy. I came back to work after that test to check on them and to get my sunglass thats I left in my locker. I told them what I did. Dana hit me because she got worried. The way Eric told her what I was doing made it seem really serious since my Mom came to pick up me and Eric knew my car was fine as he took me to go pick it up from the service center. The reason my Mom picked me was because she didn’t want to go alone and she had the directions on how to get there.
I also got my transmission on my car fixed on Friday as well. I dropped my car off at the Goodyear service center that I usually do business with for serious car matters right before work. (They may be slow, but they do the job right.) I had been noticing my transmission was slipping when it was cold outside and the car wasn’t warmed up all the way. It turns out I was slowly losing fluid because a bolt had come loose. The place fixed it for free since they were the ones who did my transmission fluid. I also had my tires rotated and balanced since they had the car. Yeah, I dropped the car off and then I walked to work from the service center, which took longer than I thought it would at about 15 minutes. It wouldn’t have been so bad it wasn’t for that damn wind chill, but this friendly homeless dog followed me to work, so he kept me company. I did try to call work to see whoever was there wouldn’t mind picking me up real fast, but I got no answer. (It turned out Bill was there, but on the other line when I called.) Once I got to work, I asked Bill to call the dog police, as I told the dog I would do for him, so hopefully he’ll get a good home.
I guess that’s it for random news. I think I went into more details then you may have wanted to hear. Enjoy the cat pictures.
