I like to call this segment, “Holla, Holla for a Dollar! This is all about awesome games out there on the indie xbox live arcade library that are only for a dollar, but the games are so awesome it’s crazy they are worth a dollar!
Ever buy a game for $10+ and then beat it or feel unsatisfied, that you paid that much for the game? Well for $1 I don’t think you can really go wrong, so I present to you the first game to mention.
Little Racers Street!
Little Street Racers is like those old toy cars you used to put on tracks style, but not on rails, you can move all around and do even more! Little Street Racers is the fifteenth released game by Milkstone Studios for Xbox LIVE Indie Games, so you they definitely have some experience with video games.
Street Racers, lets you control up to 30+ racing cars on a 3D, Top down environment, that also has awesome weather changing levels as well, so the levels don’t get stale. ( think of playing a racing game with Micro Machines) They’re 2 modes you can pick from as well career mode, which lets you do single player style campaign mode, and lets you earn money to then upgrade your cars with parts.
You think that’s all you get for a Dollar? Nope! Little Street Racers, also provides with up to 12 online multiplayer mode you can play with other people as well! The controls are nice and tight as well for this driving arcade style racer, and you will have hours upon hours of fun playing this game by yourself, and when you get tired of that, you get see how your skills are by playing online with people. well, until then, see you on the racetrack!
These text blogs is getting repetitive, i should switch it up and start adding more pics and do video blogs, but some people would rather read and some would rather watch, but im kinda just doing this for me, so ill do it whenever its handy. I have a portable hd cam i should use more that i got and was the main purpose of the purchase.
Anyway things are a little better with me, i found a way to get out of bed sometimes, but involves playing musical chairs pretty much. I did get good news, my wheelchair is ready to be put together, but gotta wait until the 22nd, to pay off the rest of the bill, so i will hopefully get my chair next week!
Been trying to get my music together and making some tracks, but there is always some kind if distraction. Usually something always comes up, and when there is no distractions, i seem to make up some for some reason.
Just finished a bunch of troubleshooting for my speaker, crackle/dropout issue, and later i willy fully test it with my new speakers. I really hope i don’t have to get my sound card sent in to get repaired that would be yet another setback. It costed me $15 to do a 1 call tech support call as well. Haven’t had any time pretty much to play any games beside on the iPad.
Im exhausted right now, time to chill and then get to testing those new speakers! I would love to get a picture of my whole setup. Hopefully soon, but first gotta do a little more cleaning up.
These last posts are pretty depressing type stuff, but only thing i can think of is whats the next transition is going to be like, because i still haven’t transitioned from not walking. Sometimes i wish i was born 30 years later when the technology will be there and i could get robot legs and whatnot. But if someone was giving out wishes i wouldn’t wish for that. Clearly it would to be born physically normal like most of everyone else in the world.
If your going to be crippled in this world, you better be fucking rich! Technology is there if you got the $$$$, or are friends with people who make super wheelchairs and other kewl shit. Time to open up my social network or at least be a beta tester for these new wheelchairs. Ive seen a wheelchair able to go up stairs! You think my new chair im getting will be able to do that? Fuck that, only if u got that $$$$.
I seen this show on sundance channel called push girls today and its about this group of decent looking women with spinal cord injuries in wheelchairs. Its definitely a deep show and i can relate with a lot of the women go through, but i dont know what i would like instead, have all of my upper body strength and no lower feeling in my body at all, or to have a body you can fully feel but with very little strength, not even enough strength to transfer to another seat or toilet, like my life is now? i think I’m in much rougher times than those women on push girls though. They have cars, they are a lot more independent, have their own group of friends they can relate to most of all, and a love life.
I cant change the hand i was dealt, but what a shitty fucking hand.
I think if i had my own car and people i could relate to, and not trapped in my house, i would be much happier no doubt, and then finally move back out again is one of my goals, but hard to accomplish when your trapped at home.
I did have a friend that i could relate too, and met him in person and became great friends, but then he passed away to MD. No one can replace him, but everyone needs someone in their life’s to relate to.
Haven’t done much these past days but just think about how the hell im going to transition to this next phase of me being more disabled. I really hope that new chair will help out, and get some of my ABLE back.
Ive been getting more and more bummed out lately, mostly because of my health and my situation, being stuck at home pretty much. Before i could walk, then the day came when i couldn’t, which was a huge game changer, and i never got used to not walking, even to this day, 12+ years later. Now i found out i cant even hold myself up long enough to transfer to my wheelchair to my computer chair or even get off the toilet by myself, without falling on the floor. At one time in my life, i lived on my own and was fully independent, and now its just me being more and more dependent on other people helping me out which really sucks for me, because i hate asking people for help. All of this shit has takin a toll on my music producing as well, but right now my sound card has been giving me some trouble so i have to troubleshoot with avid tech support and they gave me some things to try out, to see if it will fix my crackle and skip issue.
As far as good news, there isn’t much other than i got my new studio speakers and subwoofer hooked up, but when i did hook it up i noticed the dropout and crackle issue, so had to call my sound card tech support to see what the issue is. I really hope i don’t have to get my sound card repaired, that wouldn’t surprise me though with all the shits that has happened to me lately. Music is all i got and i cant even do that at the moment.
Im still waiting for my new wheelchair to arrive and i really hope that it will be lower than the chair i have now, which will make my life easier and i can actually transfer by myself again with the up and down hydraulic seat, which the chair i have doesn’t have.
Well hopefully my next post wont be so down in the dumps, and i can get the ball rolling, even if its the smallest pebble of a ball, i just gotta keep on pushing
Can’t sleep… just thinkin of the same sequence over and over. Spent all day putting auctions up on ebay making some extra cash to pay for this ipad I’m getting. Time to try and listen to some music to sleep too. Sundays goals is to hook up my speakers and configure them.
Fuckin headaches! (Tries to sleep it off)
So I went to go and hook up my studio speakers and subwoofer and find out that I got 2 of the wrong cords…ShIT! I even made a diagram on how to set it all up and still got it wrong. Well I got the cords from this awesome site called Zzounds.com and if you never heard of them, they are a great music site for equipment and more, and they also have payment plans you can do so you can get your gear and now while you pay for it in installments with no interest.
They also do exchanges so i went to do that with my cords, and filled out a form. Zzounds said they would get back to me and I received a email then next day, and they told me that they can’t do an exchange because I did the payment plan, BUT, they were going to hook me up with the cords I was asking for via the exchange for free and ship them out to me for free!
I’ve been buying equipment from them for a long time now, and with service like this, this will be the 1st and last site I’ll use to get my equipment from hands down! So long story short, I got some cords I needed, but have to play the waiting game now on when they will arrive so I can get to sound testing the new studio monitor speakers and subwoofer.
Hopefully it will come this week.
I’m finding out more and more my weakness is my impluse buying, buying shit with money I don’t have and getting into deeper debt. Sometimes being spontaneous is a bad thing, and this is one of them. When I get more and more in control of this, I feel much better, I didn’t fall into the temptation though and it makes me feel much stronger in terms of my mind and will power.
I feel all poopy the last couple of days, what’s goin on? I was on such a happy high the past weeks.
