On Getting in to TCG’s

So I haven’t posted in a while, so here’s a bit of catching up. A couple months back I got put on to a new project at work that has been keeping me fairly busy. ┬áThis particular client is probably our companies largest client and the software we provide for them to sell is used my retailers nationwide (no pressure right?). This means there is always a lot to do, either through development or testing, as well as having to be on call one out of every five weeks. ┬áThis means that I’ve been super busy. Now that doesn’t mean I haven’t had time to write anything. As one of my gaming buddies pointed out all I really need to do is find a time during the day that I could devote to writing. This is in fact true, I find there are ways I could make that effective. I … Read more…

On International TableTopDay 2013

Just going to add that 2013 at the top because I hope this does become an annual event. I will say I was very much looking forward to TableTopDay since it was announced. I managed to get most of my friends enough notice so that we could plan to get together that day, even if only for a few hours. Since this was on Easter weekend everyone had other things going on during the day, and could not stay late because of early morning obligations but we had a solid 5 hours of table top gaming. Previous to TableTop being aired (or really before youtube for that matter) I had purchased a few games but never really had a chance to play them. I already owned Killer Bunnies, Munchkin, Chez Goth, and Ninja Burger. Up till (and including now) those games have been played at most one time. It was … Read more…

On Being a Geek

So yesterday Felicia Day posted a video to youtube on the Geek & Sundry channel explaining what she thinks being a geek really means. It’s a good video and I recommend watching it before reading the rest of this post. Watching this has gotten me to think about being a geek. I would say that I am a bigger geek now than I was as a teenager, mainly because I have money to enjoy the things I want to enjoy. Back then I probably would have gotten defensive about being called a geek or a nerd, because even though I always say I tried to not care what people thought about me, it really did affect a lot of the decisions I made for a long time. What I took from that video is that simply enjoying something that might not be considered “cool” like collecting comics, or enjoying science … Read more…

On Far Cry 3

I feel like I need more characters than twitter provides for once so I can accurately describe my experience with the game. I’ll start off by saying I played through this on the PC, not the console. I am not going to say any system is better than the other, I just enjoy playing on the computer when I can. I picked this one up on the PC mainly because my desktop could handle it and because it was on sale on Steam. Graphics: For the most part I really enjoyed how the game looked visually. I was able to really get in to the game while playing because the environments were so detailed. When crouching in the grass to try a stealth approach you could see in between individual blades of grass. The way the day/night cycles shifted was believable just because of the way the shadows were cast … Read more…
