Mama’s Calling

I feel its grasp, slowly taking hold of my mind once again. It wants me to come home, it wants me back, just like it always does. Final Fantasy XI’s siren song is calling me back home once again, back to Vana’Diel. I’m trying very hard not to answer. I love FFXI, more than anyContinue reading “Mama’s Calling”

Goldilocks Zone

In sports, there’s a concept called playing out of your “‘natural’ position”, which basically means, that you’re playing in a role that’s not making the most of your skills. Like a Catcher playing Shortstop, what the Catcher does on the field doesn’t necessarily carry over to that position. A Shortstop is typically faster, more defensively-minded,Continue reading “Goldilocks Zone”

Palace Intrigue

I like reading about pieces of gossip and various firestorms that come out of a particular community, or organization. I’m a safe distance away, so, I like watching the sparks fly in these particular battles. The raging tire fire that has been Twitch the last week, the GTA VI leak debacle, Wizard101’s rogue elements, andContinue reading “Palace Intrigue”

The Emotionometer Is Busted

I have a severe distaste for stuff like Dating Sims, there’s little in the way of gameplay, and it’s mostly an excuse to gawk at the “omg so hot” characters. My brain is wired for intense, technical, high-speed combat, and involved problem-solving. Give me brain-warping puzzles and fierce, intense combat over “click button to smooch”Continue reading “The Emotionometer Is Busted”

Wake Up, It’s Gameday

I do my best work when I’m awake. Obviously, most people do, but, I mean awake, as in, not stifling a yawn and fighting off sleep. Last night, I actually played Destiny 2 with my brother, we ran Dares of Eternity, a couple Nightfalls, and…I was awake enough to really contribute. Checking the Post-Game CarnageContinue reading “Wake Up, It’s Gameday”

Some Thoughts on the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

I’m ruminating right now. Ruminating on the new Zelda, and how it’s (finally) got a title, and an actual release date, rather than a window. I’m of a few minds on this, since it’s obviously going to be the Biggest Deal when it drops (if all stays on schedule) in May of 2023. And, IContinue reading “Some Thoughts on the Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom”

Doom 3: BFG Edition – Cover Band

I like horror FPS games, FEAR, Blood, Dusk, but, the undisputed king of the mountain is Doom. I’ve loved this series since I was far, far too young to play it. We had the SNES port of Doom with the red cartridge, looking back, it was an awful port, but, a miracle to get theContinue reading “Doom 3: BFG Edition – Cover Band”

Backseat Driving

Anyone in the Blaugust Discord could probably tell you I get WAY too invested in football. Like, invested enough to try and see how I could get a Coach thrown in prison for Coaching Malpractice. I am by no means a Cincinnati Bengals “fan”, I don’t have the blood pressure to subject myself to thatContinue reading “Backseat Driving”
