New ZuneHD!

My brother got home from New York today (he had been there with his girlfriend), so I finally got a ZuneHD! Haven’t played that much with it. Been busy with school and friend, but soon everything is synced with it and ready to go. Sadly I need to get to bed very soon! Getting tired and it’s over two o’clock. “Anywho”, I was supriesed that it looks so much smaller than my older Zune (it’s mostly thinner). Other then that it’s very light and feel awesome in my hand! As I haven’t really tried it out, other than checking out my blog on it while I was on the bathroom, I can’t tell you much. Will try it out in the next few days and come back with more info. Btw, I also got some new PSP games; Loco Roco, N+, Little Big Planet and ATV Offroad Fury: Blazin’ Trails

Oh, had a friend over playing some Super Smash Bros. on the Gamecube today. Was super awesome! We’re planning a compo with more people. Going to be the bomb!

Please press pause…

Sometime I wish I could just pause my life. Just to catch up with it. Right now (as I’m been complaining about for the last ten post or something) I feel like I don’t have time to do all the things I want to do. Guess I just have to get used to if for a little while, since school starting on Monday, and I signed up for yet another class. Going to be interesting to see how it’s going to go, since all three classes are a-lot-of-work classes.

Back to my normal life, I had a vinyl to workshop with my brother on Thursday, that was super fun. And you can see some photos of what I started on (didn’t finish any piece), will also post more pictures when I get them from my brother.  I’ve also played a lot of Trials HD now, and it is super awesome! I love it so much! Also started to create two levels. Will try to see if I can film them when I get done with them. If it works out well, I’ll do the same with my N+ levels.  I also was on an Andrew Bird concert yesternight (guess that’s not a word) with my girlfriend. He started playing half past twelve, so was a bit late, but still very nice. He was fun to watch live, even though I thought he looked different.  Guess that’s what I have to tell you about my latest days. Tomorrow I’m going to “Øya Festivalen” and listen to Crystal Castles and Röyksopp and maybe some other bands. I’ll let you all know how it goes!

Trials HD: friend score comparison

This is how the new in-game friend score comparison feature works! This is taken straight from the forum.

Skill game friend scores:
trials_hd_screen_07

This is the Delivery skill game. You have to haul the cart filled with bombs as far as you can in one minute time limit. If the bombs are shaken too much or fall out of the cart, they will explode. The score is simply the distance how far you can reach before the bombs explode or the time ends. While riding the track you can see the gamertags (player names) of the top 10 players in your friend list showing the positions where they have reached.

Trials racing friend scores:
trials_hd_screen_10

This is one of the new hard racing tracks, called King of the Hill. You can see the friend comparison meter in the top of the screen. It shows in real time how much ahead/behind you are compared to the friend that is closest to you currently (and the player ranking – a feature not yet shown in this old screenshot). If you ride much faster or slower compared to the friend shown, the comparison meter will automatically swap to another friend that is closest to you. So you have always someone to race against. Currently I am racing against “jorsai2” (one of Jorma’s test profiles).

Zune HD, what you need to know?!

So, we’re getting a new Zune this fall! A HD Zune, how cool is that going to be?! There is already a lot of picture and a video of this super awesome MP3 player. We’re finally also getting a browser to search the web with! Sweet! Can’t wait. Too bad it won’t be released in Norway. So need to get in touch with my foreign friends. I want a silver one!
