So I'm playing through Super Meat Boy...
December 30, 2010

...and I wonder if it's possible to hate every level of a game, but still love the game. Seriously, every level makes me want to punch babies, they're so infuriating. But god, is the game addictive.

The kinda, sorta obligatory "What the hell did you get for Christmas" topic.
December 24, 2010

I know it's early, but my wife and I already got to do some opening at her dad's place. We got a Canon digital camera with an 8 GB SD Card. I have many other things to open here and at my parents' place tomorrow. Oh, it shall be a great harvest. Mwahahahahahah!

Really GameFAQs? Majora's Mask is "Game of the Decade"?
December 23, 2010

I know it's not official yet, but it's pretty damn close. It's between that and Super Smash Bros. Melee, which is more fitted for the title. While I don't mind Majora's Mask, I felt it was a far cry from "Game of the Decade". A very far cry in fact.

Putting the finishing touches on my Dragon's Curse walkthrough
November 21, 2010

I've forgotten just how much a walkthrough can really burn you out on a game. I have a feeling before long I'm going to hate the game that I had just reviewed at a 9. The next FAQ I have in mind........a Dragon's Curse Item FAQ. Thankfully, I already have all the info I need. I am not just going to C&P from my walkthrough, but actually write new info. That will be the last DC FAQ I will ever do. No. More.

Now, let's just hope I don't start hating the Soul Blazer trilogy. They're the next in line for a good, hard FAQing!

In other news, I recently saw The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Aw... Silent awesomeness! If you like silent era horror flicks, check this one out. German expressionism FTW!

NaNoWriMo
November 05, 2010

Anyone participating in it this year, or have you participated before? I had originally planned to, but I already had a novel started that I don't want to abandon. I'm hoping to get this one published, possibly with a local publishing company, though Spokane doesn't seem to be interested in anything spooky or weird, which this one definitely is.

After a decade of dedicated service, I have retired my PC gamepad
November 01, 2010

Around the time I started going to college, I decided it was time to upgrade from the uncomfortable contraption I was using for a gamepad--one that looked like a Batarang--for something more comfortable and with more buttons. I learned from this experience to avoid Gravis gamepads like the plague, as I bought yet another that didn't work.

Instead, I shelled out the extra money and yielded to the might of a Saitek P750. That controller and I saw many reviews, many FAQs, and many questionable downloads together.
