I've started a new site/blog of sorts. There's not too much there yet (have updated a few of my old reviews), and the scope might be a bit wide, but it's just something I want to do (haven't really dabbled with anything site-related since my old Jaguar's Lair site, Anoxic Games and then StaticGamer...that's like almost a decade ago on the most recent...getting old). If anyone has any feedback, I'd appreciate it.
I've heard Desktop Dungeons described as a 10-minute "dungeon crawl" or "roguelike," and that's really not a bad summation (though it's definitely closer to the latter). You take your character (picking race and class) and attempt to navigate your way through the dungeon and ulti mately take on the boss character (they're at level 10, you always start at level 1). The only way you'll do this is by carefully using what potions and spells you're able to find or buy and very carefully working your
I can't decide which pair of cufflinks is classier...
Obviously I'm being sarcastic. Both are trashy in their own way. I just wonder who on earth would even consider wearing such things (particularly the latter pair).
Well, I realized tonight that the two entries I'd made prior to this blog were still in draft (unpublished) status. They're two years old, so I went ahead and put them through, just to get my feet wet. Apparently I like to complain about feeling old. It's two years later now, and I only feel older. I need to stop complaining, it beats the alternative.
At any rate, I became a father on the 28th of September. The last much has been...challenging. I'm not quite sure how my wife does it. She's b
I feel really old today, worn-down. Life hasn't exactly been easy of late, but then again, when has it ever? There are more problems than I can shake a stick at frankly, and I don't know where to even begin. This predicament has left me with tendencies for thinking too much, and ending up at the bar for hours on end.
I don't even feel like playing games right now.
The games I have managed to play are older ones, games that I'm a little nostalgic over, which I guess makes a
I'm not sure what it is. I turn 30 in a couple of months, and frankly, I feel a lot older than that. Lately gaming has kind of fallen to the wayside in a sea of adult troubles and concerns, and frankly, it sucks. I just haven't been in the mood to play games like I used to. The last game I was really into was Mass Effect, and for good reason: the gameplay was deep, the story engrossing and the characters weren't a bunch of 17 year old teeny-boppers. I like RPG's, but I'd prefer them with real pe
