Back to the Grind.

Whoah. I am not good at this blogging thing. I am effing rusty. I’ve lost writer-voice a little bit, and it’s going to take some time to get myself back into that mental space where I can create mental outlines of posts before I start typing, rather than write a whole epic poem that uses…

February 21st Update

Another bulk update about tv/movies I’ve seen, games I’ve played, etc. Movies Riddick What do I say about this movie? It doesn’t really hold a candle to other things I’ve seen recently, it definitely feels a bit stunted in a few places, but I still liked it. The biggest flaw is its pacing. It doesn’t…

February 7th Update:

Just a quick update to keep things rolling here on the blog. I consume a lot of media and information on a weekly basis, and it’s really hard to keep up. And between being sick on and off for a week, miserable winter weather, and general seasonal-affective-disorder-type symptoms, it’s been a whirlwind. If by whirlwind…

I finally tried Minecraft, and now I’m addicted.

Sooooo…. Minecraft has been around for a few years—Since 2011, and for early adopters, since 2009. And somewhat like Portal when it first came out, I used to see references to it everywhere, and a huge fanbase, and I had no idea what people were talking about, or why a game like that would be…

Another Catch-up Post: Games and Movies.

I will completely admit to being a little out-of-sorts lately. It’s been a few months worth of being pulled in many directions, I’m grumpier than usual, work projects keep dragging on with revisions and edits, and weekends fly by with the zeal of a million locusts, devouring all of my energy and not really preparing…

Beyond: Two Souls — 2nd Impressions

(Spoilers ahead) I kept Beyond: Two Souls another day because it really did pick up a bit before I was planning on returning it to Redbox, and the story got more and more interesting and engaging. A future where Jodie is homeless and living with other homeless people, a teenage rebellion sneak-out to a bar,…

More J.K. Rowling films yet to come!

Warner Bros. and J.K. Rowling Team Up for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Film Series! – ComingSoon.net. I’m excited about this! I knew she couldn’t stay away from it. 🙂

First Look: The Sims 4 Official Gameplay Trailer

I can see it now, I will create a character named Nandy Fussypotch, give her humungous knees, a mouth that goes from ear to ear, beady little black eyes, and make her a petty thief and seductress. She will be constantly pregnant and fill her home with the stolen items of her neighbors.

The Diamond Sword from Minecraft made real.

I have recently discovered the YouTube series Man at Arms, which features a professional blacksmith who creates real versions of fictional weapons. Attention-span friendly and extremely impressive, this guy takes weapons that would never be made in real life, and does just that. Examples include Minecraft’s pixelated diamond sword, and Cloud’s giant Buster Sword from…

Dear Bethesda, Please make the next Elder Scrolls game local co-op.

Dear Bethesda, While games continue to become more graphically impressive, dynamic, and robust, they have also continued to lean towards a somewhat repetitive trend of online co-op/competitive, and most games end up sticking on some sort of deathmatch element onto an otherwise adventure-based game. This is irritating for those of us who a) have friends…

Why I haven’t played Skyrim in awhile…

I am a huge fan of The Elder Scrolls series, so much so that I might even subscribe to my first ever MMORPG when The Elder Scrolls Online is released and I buy a PS4 this Fall. The reason I like The Elder Scrolls series so much is the sheer scale and play length of…
