So one of the things I got for Christmas was this Anotherholic book. It’s actually kind of shockingly lame, since it amounts to xXxholic licensed fiction, and we all know how amazing licensed fiction is. (Not that there’s anything wrong with it, though, if it’s a series you like. Knock yourself out! And I mean, […]

Newsflash: Work fucking sucks.

Hey, here’s a bit of wisdom you probably don’t know: Work sucks. Now, I’m not one of those people who complain constantly about work. I try not to be, anyway. I rather like working, in general. It lets me buy useless crap and it makes me feel useful, and I appreciate it for such things. […]

It’s a whole new world… with new horizons to pursue!

So Essner got me this Carcassone variant, New World. It’s… well, I don’t know if it’s better than original Carcassonne? But it certainly does add interesting elements. For one, having to build off of one edge does add some interesting elements to the strategy. In normal Carcassonne, you can go just about anywhere to, you […]

It’s almost like it’s World of Warcraft or something.

So, the other day, Valera, a friend of mine from Kingdom of Loathing and Twilight Heroes, comes and asks me if I’d be free most Wednesday nights after game rollover. She wants to do some serious Hobopolis runs, apparently. She’d like to get some Hamsters. I told her sure, I’m game. This kind of run […]

Persona 4 Post-Mortem

I BEAT PERSONA 4! I didn’t get the true ending, though I have a save so I can, if I wanted. But I don’t want. But dammit, I BEAT PERSONA 4! It’s so rare for me to actually beat a jRPG. I normally start so, so many of these, so many games in general, and […]

A Post-Christmas Ramble

Well, it’s over. I’m tired and happy. I got mostly what I wanted with a pleasant extra game from my brother, and it’s all awesome. Did I mention I’m tired? Yeah, I dunno, that’ll show me not to sleep much last night, eh? The one thing about this Christmas that really kind of caught me […]

Government-Mandated Merry Chrissymas Post

Well, it’s here. And while I’m ripping open presents and spending time with my family and stuff, just let me make it clear to those out there, my friends who read this blog… gods, I appreciate you. The connections, the bonds I have with all of you mean so damn much. So much. I certainly […]

I have straightened the A’s.

So, the results are in, and I got all A’s. Even after those bitches of finals there (Heh, I got a 75 on one, but my grade was so high I still got an A overall. And I somehow managed a near-perfect on the other final. Who knew?) I managed to pull it off. This […]

Random Humor: A Quick Theory

So, the other night, after showing Jessie Left 4 Dead and having a good time at that (though she obviously isn’t a shooter player. It shocks me that she beats games like Silent Hill that frustrate me. She must either be better at them than me or have extreme patience) we went looking for something […]

Me and my Shadow

So, on the topic of game related shit I think too much about, I’ve been putting a lot of thought into trying to figure out what my Shadow would be in the Persona 4 sense. For those of you who aren’t playing the crap out of the game right now, a Persona 4 shadow would […]
