Rock Band DLC, Weeks of 21 & 28 September

Hey! Hi. I’m still being lazy with DLC. We’ll just write September off and I’ll start going into over-long opinions in October. But don’t let my lack of talking about it dissuade you from these two weeks of DLC. There’s some excellent tracks still coming strong. And we’re only a month away from Rock Band 3! Good times to play plastic instruments. Week of 21 September It’s the return of the full album, this week […]

The Zen of Jett, Week 28

Life is hard. We all know this. Even puppies know this, and their main jobs are to eat and poop. It’s a dark lonely road we walk, with only our wits to guide us. Jett understands, and she’s here to help. Every Friday, Jett will share with you her wisdom in your neverending lifequest for inner peace and fulfillment. This is The Zen of Jett.

PAX 2010, Day 3

We’ve had quite an adventure so far. You don’t want to just jump in at exciting finale; go read what came before: Day 0, Day 1, Day 2, Part 1, Day 2, Part 2. And now, the conclusion of PAX 2010.   Morning came to me at 8.30. We had nowhere particular to be. Our major goal for Sunday was a modest one: I had been around Rock Band 3 all weekend and had yet […]

PAX 2010: Day 2, Part 2

If you’re just tuning in, here’s what you missed so far: the pre-con Day 0, PAX begins in Day 1, and the first of our two-part look at Day 2. And now, Day 2 Continues.   After lunch we had a decision to make. We were incredibly interested in the live D&D session with Penny Arcade’s Gabe and Tycho, PvP’s Scott Kurtz, and Wil Wheaton. Checking Twitter however, I saw that we were not alone […]

PAX 2010: Day 2, Part 1

PAX has many days and many stories. Here’s our pre-con Day 0, and here’s all about Day 1. Please note that this post is hi-yuge, and quite pictoral. What’s more, it’s only actually the first half of Day 2. The second half will be coming later today.   The alarm went off at 7am. That probably sounds a little crazy for a vacation. I’d probably agree with you. I would definitely agree with you at […]

PAX 2010: Day 1

To read about our pre-PAX vacation beginnings, check out my Day 0 write-up.       The first day of PAX began later than expected, thanks to my seeming inability to know the difference between “AM” and “PM” on my phone’s alarm. Luckily my internal clock is a little more aware of its surroundings and jolted me wide awake at 6.30, only a half-hour later than planned. I’d also correctly gauged my level of disorganization […]

Rock Band DLC, Weeks of 7 & 14 September

Sadly I’m still recovering from my bout of PAX pox so this is little more than a catch-up list of DLC with links. (The rest of my PAX write-ups will be coming this weekend and into next week.) Today’s announcement had some thrilling stuff in it though, so don’t let my lack of enthusing in the post make you think I’m not excited. I’m excited. I’m so excited, I’m riding a tiger right now. Week […]

T Minus 24 Hours to Old

It’s not my birthday yet. But it’s close enough to have forced me out of the house today, despite my lingering PAX Pox, and into the cold, sterile, unfeeling arms of the DMV. Their gift to me? Highway robbery and eight years of a picture that somehow managed to look even worse than the last one. I didn’t even think that was possible. After an hour spent swaying unsteadily in line we decided that food […]

PAX 2010: Day 0

It’s that time of year. The time when summer dies and gamers live, flocking to Seattle in the tens of tens of thousands. This was our second PAX; the first was so awesome that we knew before it had even finished that we’d want to do it all over again. There’s been a lot said about the PAX experience. “Home” is how it’s mostly described, and it’s definitely a feeling that can’t be overstated. I’m […]

Yay for Roman-themed puns. Please enjoy it, as it’s probably the most interesting part of this post. Mike and I are headed for PAX tomorrow. Four days and three nights in glorious Seattle – much like glorious Portland only I don’t live there. We will be fully immersed in games and geekery such as the world has never seen. Consequently, no more posts to come this week. I know, I know, with my break-neck dedicated […]
