There's a lot of old games like NFL Blitz 2001, a game where you shoot aliens and alien looking like humans (denoted by them shooting at you) called Area 51, and some old 4 player with knights, elves, rouges, and wizards called Gauntlet. That last game had 10 credits in it so I played one of them. It was a bit like diablo but u don't pick up cool things and all the enemies continually spawn back at a constant speed so getting out of an area is more important than killing everything. What frustrated me the most hitting the attack button didn't do anything, you had to keep holding the joystick towards the thing you wanted to kill and the computer did the slashing for you. So running around the enemy was not a possibility when it got crowded. I can't believe this game is a classic. It's an awful game.
A new supermarket called T&T recently opened in my neighbourhood and this was the first time I've been there. It has some of the best prices and it's clean like a Dominion or Loblaws (if you consider those clean). We were there buying some take out sushi and joining the crowd:
Much like Toronto's airport, Cincinnati's is divided into different sections and I had to get to Concourse B. I had to ride a bus that runs from concourse to concourse through traffic of trucks transporting baggage and airplanes. Here is a picture of the inside of concourse B:
It's really huge a nice. But where's the Canadian flag??? Here's a map if you're ever there:
Much like concourse C, a familiar restaurant can be easily found:
You have probably read about JetsGo by now and how their Terminal 3 front is all empty now with people everyone else scrambling around looking for another way to get to their destination, I hope you get an idea how difficult arranging travel is. I was in Terminal 3 just last week:
I hope everyone is able to get to where they need to be. A company that has so many commitments it's suppose to fulfill should not be allowed to shut down like that. I would be really annoyed if I were stuck in a place because my flight was cancelled. Investors should also place more thought into what they invest in. How could they invest in a company that Michel Leblanc founded after he's bankrupted 2 (Royal Aviation before being sold to backrupted Canada 3000 and Quebecair which was renamed to Intair) already!
Right beside a sports store my friend wanted to go into was a franchise store I regularly visit:
It must seem like I always visit cell phone stores. But but.... ok I just wanted to play with some gadgets. But they usually only have dumb phones so that's no fun. Here's a new Sony Ericsson phone that takes 1 Megapixel pictures that I saw:
You've probably seen many chinese people at pmall with them.
Since the Marriott Courtyard was full this week, we stayed at the Marriott Residence Inn. They're right beside each other. I can't believe there are so many people visiting Columbus. Anyways here's pics of my room:
It's a great way to work! In front of the TV. Do they really think I can cook? I can do shake n' bake but where's the oven??
And finally we have my bed. Smaller than my last one but still a good size.
Although you can't tell from the pic, there's another TV right in front of the bed since the bed is in a separate room from the first picture. It's like an apartment.
While I was at that mall I mentioned last time, I was at the Radio Shack and the assistant manager showed me this new Samsung from Verizon:
Yup that's a video streaming from the internet! Too bad it's not live streaming video but it was fast and good quality. Would you ever want to watch TV on your phone? I can imagine people all hunched and squinting their eyes while watching the phone.
We decided to take a short road trip around Ohio to find out what's in this town so we went to this mall in OH. I forget what it's called Eastland Mall, I'll update this blog. So here is a pic of it:
It was SO dead and empty. I never even see woodside square (if you don't know this mall in Toronto then at least you understand how small it is) that empty before. The only time I remember malls that empty was during SARS time. So I took look around at stuff and saw shoes with weird suspension:
And saw stores that don't exist in Canada:
And a trip to the mall is never complete without a visit to a GSM cell phone store:
