Was it worth it?

(Feedback says that posting earlier in the day was well-received, plus I passed out last night without posting, so … seize the consciousness while it hovers I suppose.) For absolutely no good reason at all my body decided it was going to become PLAGUE CENTRAL yesterday. Went to bed feeling fine, woke up around 2am feeling shitty, and every wake-up from that point on (and there were so very many) was worse. I spent all […]

It's so BAD!

My mother sent us a couple of boxes of assorted stuff this weekend. I think she was really just looking for a way to unload some more of my endless supplies of crap that still infect her house all these years later, but. Enclosed were some amazing things. Many trades and graphic novels that we haven’t seen in years: From the Ashes (collecting Uncanny #169-#175, some of the best), Batman Death in the Family, Secret […]

O Captain, My Captain

Just finished my speed-play of Mass Effect 1 with my renegade Male Shepard, who I in no way warmed to before the the end of the game. My but he’s a bastard. A wooden, unemoting bastard. Interesting choices as renegade however, and I’m extremely interested to see how those play out in ME2. The hardest part: Killing the rachni queen. I had guilt pangs. Over an action in a video game. Yeah. Have to admit […]

I just finished Mass Effect 2 about 20 minutes ago. I’m now reinstalling ME1 so I can start the series over again as a renegade this time. Consider what I’ve said previously about my attitude toward replaying games and that should give you a good idea about how much I enjoyed it. But in case I need to spell it out, I really really enjoyed it. I will proceed to talk about it a bit, […]

He has pretty eyes and I want to squish him.

Long day is long. I’m glad you only have two days left, March, because I have hated you. Get the fuck out of my calendar. There’s a lot on my mind today, but rather than talk about those interesting things I’m instead going to talk about Mass Effect. Because it too has been on my mind, though in a much less pervasive or important capacity. First up, I am so digging ME2 now. Even combat […]

I hope you choke on your Christmas ornament.

Most of my day was ass. I failed at absolutely everything I tried to do today, except possibly breathing. Firefox 4 leaked a bit early. Interestingly this comes on the heels of me being so sick of Firefox slowdowns that I was about to give Chrome another shot. I didn’t try the beta so the grand total of my hands-on experience with 4.0 is all of about 30 minutes, but thus far I’m pleased. You […]

Sunday Starcade.

Okay, Mass Effect 2. I think I’m finally into you. Your combat system isn’t so much growing on me as I’ve learned to just suck it up and deal with you, and your storyline becomes increasingly interesting. I’m glad I decided to return to you this morning. Speaking of returning to things, Mike and Scott resumed their work on the radio project. All went well, right up to the exact moment it didn’t. Then it […]

Crap burgers and cabbage. (Yum.)

Crap burgers and cabbage. (Yum.)

Defense Grid you are KILLING ME, arrgh. St. Patrick’s Day today. It ended with a bit more feisty anger than I’d originally intended, but perhaps that’s in keeping with the day’s spirit. We went down to a local cafe so that Mike could get his annual corned beef and cabbage. I KNOW, RIGHT? So gross. There’s a reason he only gets to eat it once a year. They were out of the pasta I wanted […]

Affectionately called "The Danger Room".

I got all kinds of sick yesterday I think. I woke up not feeling great and come 2pm I was flagging badly and spent the night wrapped up in a blanket playing DeathSpank. Finished it, by the way. I remember my olden days of yore where I never finished a single bloody game ever. I’ve been playing games since the Atari 2600 was new, and the first game I ever played through to the end […]

This past week has been a rough one for me. Spiraling dark head stuff leaving me able to do little more than drag myself out of bed. Which, on those days, I consider a huge accomplishment frankly. I’m not 100%. I’d say riding around 30%. But as compared, that too is huge. Enough of that. I went back and played a little Sims 3 today as I continue to try out my new vid card. […]
