Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal (PS2) Preview

Developer: Insomniac Games | Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment

Ratchet and Clank are back for another go around, and from what I’ve seen in the past, it’s going to be one heck of a game.

Ratchet and Clank is a 3D action game in which you control the characters Ratchet and Clank. Ratchet has at his disposal a vicious set of weaponry, ranging from flamethrowers to rockets to strong magnets. Clank assists Ratchet along the journey, and is most of the time on Ratchet’s back, occasionally becoming a helicopter, talking in a British accent when the story needs to be moved along, and more. Clank can also be used as his own independent character. The series seems to get better with each game.

Already packed with enough weapons to raze a small country, the addition of more weapons will make for an even more action-filled experience than its predecessors. Also with an online mode included, this game will be an awesome experience. Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal is set to come out in Fall 2004.

 

My Parent’s Stupid Argument

My mom and my step-dad were fighting yesterday, because my mom didn’t like this plant that was in a pot.  Well this is how it happened:

(mompoobond takes the plant out of the pot and plants way back in the back of the backyard and puts one of her flowers in the pot it was in)

(stepdadpoobond gets mad)

stepdadpoobond: What’d you do to my plant?  That was my plant!

mompoobond: Since when do you care about what I do back here?  I replanted it back by the fence, I didn’t like it.

(something else happens between that and this:)

(mompoobond is about to replant his plant back into the pot)

stepdadpoobond: If you move that plant, I’ll take the scissors and cut it up into little pieces!

mompoobond: You’re cruel

(stepdadpoobond leaves, mompoobond just takes her plant out of the pot, throws it away, and they don’t talk for about 4 hours, and they make up around 10:00 PM)

When my mom told me about this, I almost laughed.  My mom said I “was old enough to hear these things.”  What the hell? A 10 year old is old enough to hear about 2 ADULTS fighting about 2 plants.  Stupid.  And they say I’M immature…

 

Dream #23035: The Dream at a Mall

I wrote this on April 13, 2002.

This dream was especially weird, but I can’t remember all the details. I remember I was just there, in the middle of a mall. I look in front of me, and the Wherehouse that I worked at (which wasn’t in a mall) was there.

Since I hadn’t worked there because of Spring Break, I decided to go inside and see what was happening in there.

It was Saturday, and the people I saw working there, I didn’t know, even though I worked on Saturdays. I waved to this guy I saw working there before, and he waved back. The whole store was different than before, it had stereos, satellites, and speakers, kind of like a Good Guys, on one side, and just a couple racks of CDs on the other side.  It seemed like they did it all in one day.

The manager saw me and came over, saying, “hey, what are you doing here?” I said, “nothing, just checkin’ up on ya guys, what’s going on with all this stuff?” The manager said, “you like? We moved around the whole store!”

The manager went away, and I was just kinda looking at the stuff there for a long time, feeling ignored because nobody that was working there was talking to me.

I finally left, and went into the crowd of people outside the store. I started walking towards another place, like I needed to go there or something bad would happen. Or something.

Then I woke up. Later on today, a dog I had for 7 ½ years, since I was 9, died of cancer.

 

PTA Protest at a School

About 20 stupid parents are protesting because theirs and other stupid kids break their arms while playing on the “horizontal ladder” in the “equipment” (with all the slides and stuff like that) that is worth $43,175 and the rubber is actually “causing the broken arms” when they fall, and the protesters say that wood chip mulch crap is better than the rubber.

I say its the dumbass kids’ fault, for being a dumbass and falling off the damn ladder! the parents are protesting so that the school doesn’t replace the rubber with the same rubber stuff. the wood chips would just make it a harder fall, and jam into their bodies when they fell down. oh yeah, thats a lot better…stupid 20 dumbasses! TEACH YOUR DAMN KIDS TO NOT FALL OFF A LADDER! That sure shows where they’ll be going in the future, if you ask me…they climb the ladder, but when they’re at the top, they fall and break their damn puny arms!

Dear Computer,

Today was a total bore, not to mention last weekend with dadpoobond, but the only fun I got was when we were watching movies we bought at Costco (a.k.a. Price Club) Well nothing else to say…til’ tomorrow I think it’s going to be a big day, it’s a hunch (though my hunches always come at the wrong time to have a hunch, but maybe this time it might be on time)

From,

Dear Computer,

Today I went to the floating lab………It sucked.  When we got back at around 2:20 we had some time to kill, so we went to Mrs. Leach’s room and stayed there for awhile.  I was sitting at the table next to Alison and Jennifer (on right side) and Jesse left to me (I was at the far side of the room).  Anyway Alison asked if I liked Jennifer anymore than a friend.  And I didn’t even answer that question…I never liked Jennifer in the 1st place so I didn’t say anything (It wasn’t like they were waiting for me to answer…I guess they were giving me a hint or somethin’).  On Tuesday Paul sort of sprained his left wrist (or broke it) while trying to dunk on the court.  So I didn’t see him until today and he had a cast on.

Till Next Time,

Davepoobond

Basic Overview of Life

I went to Day Care EVERY SINGLE day of my life.

Not much excitement in life.

That’s about it……

New News at School

About 2 weeks of school left and 6th grade.

As you can tell it was boring today because of lack of detail……

Gripin’ ‘Bout Somethin’ Everyday

Day Care as usual but it’ll end when this year is up…

Mary Alice is a bungholio and a brain the size of an ant

Playstation and Sega suck big time

Nature BITES

Rumors and Suspicions

Jane kissed Ben on the cheek 8 times (rumor I heard)

Any ol’ thing

South Park’s new season starts today and I can’t watch it ‘cause I have to go to the “Floating Lab” tommarow and my mom said I have to go to sleep by 9:30 and it’s on at 10:00 – 10:30 on Wednesdays and 10:00 on Saturdays.

I don’t know if the “Floating Lab” will be any good. The Floating Lab is when we study about fish and other crud in the LA Harbor.

I have 6 CDs so far. They are:  Will Smith Big Willie Style, The Best of Sade, Spice Girls Spiceworld, Mariah Carey Daydream, The Titanic Soundtrack, and another one with Mariah Carey.

N64 RULES.
