Sometimes it says I’m a fighter. But I’m not playing a game called “Fighter.”

(Pardon the long, rambling intro. This is a review for Rogue Touch. I promise I get to reviewing it at some point.) I’m relatively new to the Roguelike scene. I played Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon 2 way back in the day on the Playstation, but much like my first play of FFT, I didn’t get it, […]

Recent Depression Attack Debriefing

When you’re feeling overwhelmed, the thing you have to do is break the task into chunks that are not overwhelming. This is just generally useful advice. Seriously, put that shit to work. Do it. Still, sometimes when you’re most overwhelmed, you have problems thinking of things in those terms. You’re freaking out and you can’t […]

The cover shows some sort of coathanger monster, too.

The semester is winding down. That means I’m almost out of novels from my novels class! One more after this! But I finished the second-to-last one, The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier. And now I will blog about it. If I were to describe the concept of this novel to you, you […]

The Mad Rush: A Best Buy Clearance Story

So, earlier in the week, Rei crossposted a bit of information from CheapAssGamer. There was some good stuff on the list! I was wanting to try Soul Calibur IV and Too Human and Infinite Undiscovery, so I set my phone to let me know to go, and then I went. I got there 15 minutes […]

I am so bad at moving on.

The way I work is fucking weird, man. I don’t know. It was but a day or two ago that I had some really great conversations, some really great time with some really great people, and I felt refreshed, not only just in general but in preparing to start on the huge, complicated quest of […]

IoTM Review: Still a few more pieces to go for a full ensemble.

Prismatic Sports Bra! It’s good! Join me tomorrow when I’ll tell you th… Okay, fine, a little more. First off, the idea of it being a “sports bra” is, you have to admit, pretty humorous. Even as a female character, the idea of fighting crime in just a crazy color-changing sports bra is funny. So […]

I’m sure you were going on this trip, too.

Yeah, this is a post about a dream. Last night, I dreamed that there was a huge trip going on. It was a big deal. It was a huge event. Everyone was going, and I do mean everyone. My entire family was going. Essner, Spaeth, Droid, all my IRL friends were going. Most of my […]

Easily distracted from problem solving.

When we last left our heroes, Lord Captain Alluishous had jumped directly into a slime and got his ass devoured. Luckily, since then, we got another party member… who was with us the whole time! Of course! Originally, I thought it quite unfortunate that he didn’t go Barbarian as I was expecting, but instead went […]

Total Nonstop Dialog Trees

I bet when you ask a wrestling fan what they want from a wrestling game, they would say they want all the moves, a hardcore fighting game where they can do everything from the show. They’re wrong. The wrestling part is such a small part of wrestling. The vast majority of these shows aren’t the […]

Random Story Clip: Roleplaying Minigame: Combat! Nicholai Vs Amy

(This is something I used to do all the damn time way, way back in the day: A clip of the story I’m running through my head. I haven’t done it in forever, but I feel like it now, so I am. Maybe I’ll do more later. Who knows. This is from my Roleplaying universe, […]
