[NEWS] Pokemon GO's update is apparently MIA
September 12, 2016

One of Pokemon GO's limitations is its evolution system. In order to evolve a Pokemon, you need a specific type of candy. You obtain this candy by catching that particular Pokemon. For instance, if you capture a Squirtle, Wartortle or Blastoise, you'll obtain three Squirtle candies. You can also gain an additional piece of candy for "transfering" a Pokemon to the professor, which is basically like deleting it from your list.

Obviously, since certain Pokemon are not easy to find, evolving them can be a royal pain. You might be able to catch enough Squirtles to evolve to a Wartortle, which requires 25 Squirtle candies, but can you nab enough of them to promote him to a Blastoise (requires 100 Squirtle candies)? Niantic had to find a way around this.

Game Progress 9/12
September 12, 2016

With my new schedule firmly in place, I've had little time to game. Also, I cold turkeyed caffeine this week to help reduce my anxiety. The good news is my anxiety has gone down considerably. The bad news is caffeine withdrawals are a pretty terrible thing to live through. Headaches are only the beginning. I've also had to deal with drowsiness, sciatic nerve pain, fatigue and the occasional bouts of light sensitivity. Thankfully, I've gotten through the worst of it and no longer need to sleep all the time.

I shall now draw ten random horror movies from my watch list to check out next
September 06, 2016

Ages ago, I compiled a list of horror movies to watch because I had so many I wanted to check out that I was forgetting that some even existed. Unfortunately, when my computer crapped out, the original file became corrupted. Bear in mind that I had hundreds of movies on that list because I don't shy away from B-level productions or obscure horror fare.

Game Progress 8/19

My main focus is Stranger. It's been a trudge, but not an unpleasant one.


Stranger of Sword City (Vita)
I've made a lot of progress since the last post. I've annihilated every Lineage Type in the Mausoleum of Metal and the Mausoleum of Forests, including the minotaur-looking dude in front of the monument. None of the forest's Lineages were much of a hassle, though the Princess of Plants or whatever she's called put one of my characters in the hospital.

No Man's Sky has reminded me why gamers occasionally have a bad reputation
August 13, 2016

I have yet to play No Man's Sky. Though it kind of piqued my interest when I first read about it, I have to say that it doesn't look to be something I'd drop $60 on. I'll wait for a huge price reduction and nab it when it's in the bargain bin or on a tremendous digital sale.

What drives me nuts about this game isn't the game itself, but the discussions surrounding it. Let me give you a sample:

Commenter 1: Scathing opinion, sometimes with clever punchline.

Commenter 2: Grumbly comment about how no one understands what the game is supposed to be or how exploration games work.

Commenter 3: General negative statement about exploration games and the ruination of gaming.

Game Progress 8/8
August 08, 2016

I hoped to have this post live about a month ago. However, that pesky thing called life keeps getting in the way. Between work, family time and hitting the gym, I've had little time for gaming, though I have still managed to get through some titles and advanced further in others.
