The path of the hardcore gamer is a hard one on the wallet…

So the other night, as Nich sells me on yet another game and I go to preorder it, which leads to me preordering another game and then putting a third almost on preorder but then on my “don’t buy for birthday” list… it occurs to me how horrible the “burden” of having too much leisure […]

So I, uh, just bought a new computer…

So, in a matter of hours, I decided to buy a new computer, and then bought one. Brer helped me pick out the parts (and there better not be any firmware issues this time) and I pulled the trigger. This was something I was going to do at the end of the semester, to reward […]

Remedial Writing for Senior Writing Majors

So, I basically kind of hate all my classes this semester. My night class is really awesome, and shall continue to be. One of my classes sucks for a good reason, so I can’t really hate it too much. The other two, though… there’s no real reason for them being as useless as they are. […]

Arcade Stickler

WOAH, my arcade stick came in. I’d heard about issues with the FightStick right when mine shipped out. People were complaining about all kinds of crazy things, but mostly the stick getting stuck in positions. This was… potentially bad! But luckily, it came in, and there was no such issues. Man, it’s so cool. The […]

Blaring into your ears.

So here’s another work story for you. I was finish up work on Friday morning. Everything was going great! We were actually getting out on time for once! Things were looking up. Everyone walks out, and all that’s left is me. I walk up to the alarm panel, getting ready to set it. It’s then […]

So, Fighting in the Street for the Fourth Time is here! Street Fighter IV! I’ve been waiting for this for quite some time. There was some worries about the online play not being good, and there are still some future worries about the arcade stick I got not being up to snuff, but overall, this […]

So, I was fucking tired of every single podcast ever and every single news blogpost and everything talking about Burnout Paradise without me having played it. TIRED OF IT. So I got it, since it was only 20 bucks. Now, common sense would dictate that this was 20 bucks badly spent. I’m not a racing […]

Water, water, water.

So, for the lovely day of Valentine’s, Brer got me a copy of Aquaria on Steam. If you haven’t heard of this, it’s an indie game in the Metroidvania style that takes place under the water! Crazy water! I’m a fan of the Metroidvania style of gaming, so I had always meant to try it, […]

Less challenge, really, and more just pure awesome.

So, Retro Game Challenge! The game that Parish and all of Talking Time is all crazy over! Guess what? There’s damn good reason. If you grew up playing console games, there is no way this game will not put a smile on your face. The presentation starts off silly, and most of it is kind […]

A post about burnout, but not Burnout Paradise, which is coming later.

So, back when I got Amazon Prime, I got it because… well, I already talked about that awhile back, I guess. But I was planning on getting all my games through Amazon now. It’s quickly started to become apparent that the potential for this annoying me is inherent in this plan. There are people who […]
