I am doing a review of a complete conversion modification of the hit game Star Wars: Empire at War called "Republic at War." The original game was excellent, but people felt like it was missing something. Then a group known as z3r0x came up with an idea to convert the Rebellion and the Empire to the Republic and the CIS (Confederacy of Independent Systems). It doesn't have the campaign mode of the original, but it has a great Conquest. It has an overall bigger galaxy, with more planets, like Bakura, Mechis 3, Trandosha, Antar, and Duro.
The graphics have been improved on, as well. The details on the ships are very accurate to the movies and cartoons, and the lasers look like lasers instead of red and blue teardrops. This mod is a must download if you are a fan of real time strategy games or if you're a big Star Wars fan. I give it my Stamp of Approval. 20/20.
I haven't done a post in a while, but I am here to tell you about this nice place called High Scores Arcade. This place is an ARCADE MUSEUM!!! (you have to say this in a loud booming voice). It's located on Coruscant- I mean in Alameda, right by a mini golf course and a vintage game store, if you're interested. The place is $5 for 1 hour, and $10 for the entire day. What a steal! At the arcade, there are a lot of those machines with a bunch of games. I think that this is a good way to provide variety with your games, instead of just Atari Star Wars, Frogger, and Joust. Those games are awesome though
Mother and I played completely different games. We played absolutely nothing with each other, except MORTAL KOMBAT!!! (starts singing theme song) Ahem. We also played Double Dragon together (We sucked, Just being honest, Mom!). I decided to torture myself by playing the arcade version of Battletoads. It was hard, but I kind of expected that. I lost to Sagat in the original 1987 Street Fighter (yes, I got to the end. Geki was the hardest, and a Hadouken is impossible to pull off without being killed by the hyper intelligent A.I. We then played Final Fight. We did significantly better. I played as Guy (Wow, what a creative name). Mom introduced me to Tempest. I didn't get it. I really didn't get the concept, and I've played dozens of Atari games (I've noticed that a lot of them have to do with space).
Overall, this is definitely worth your time if you have an off day, or if you just feel nostalgic at that very hour.
This post is for Mr. Brewer. This is my last Science Experiment for Montera Middle School. I will turn in the worksheet on Thursday 6/5.
The Egg did not splatter as much as I thought it would. The Cup I used may have not been the best idea for a container. I liked the experiment. It would have been better if I actually completed it in class. The Formulas were difficult to find from home. I will do better and pay more attention.
