Game on [Jan. 7th, 2014|01:53 pm]
(x-posted from Tumblr because I'm bored)

I have succumbed to peer pressure and tried FTL and am loving it, but for very small details.  This is the kind of thing I would’ve blown up a bus full of nuns for when I was in high school — tactical starship combat with systems being damaged/repaired.

Note that its terms are relative: “easy” means “you will die repeatedly until you learn how not to.”  “Normal,” I suppose, means “you will die repeatedly despite any action on your part.”

I think my favorite part of it is that it seems to create its own narrative, each runthrough being a unique little adventure.  Once I finished the game (read: when my ship was torn to shreds) with an entirely different crew that started, due to space spiders and a few problems with the circulation.  Once I got two sectors in before my crew was extinguished save one, and he bravely tromped through five more sectors solo before finding new friends with whom to die in flames.

XCOM: Enemy Within has that same feeling of each runthrough birthing its own unique adventure — doubly so if you’ve played through the original Enemy Unknown and are totally taken aback by the expansion/sequel’s twists, at least one of which is just cruel.  But if you never thought turn-based strategy could be frenetic, try escaping from Newfoundland.  (I’ve had bad trips to Newfoundland, but none quite that bad.)

And being a fan of the classic Hitman series, I’m intermittently poking through Hitman: Absolution.  My playthroughs are typically exercises in stealth fail, degenerating into long drawn-out shootouts and merciful restarts.  My first play of “The King of Chinatown” involved me scoping out the scene thoroughly, making two cursory runs of the perimeter, and then deciding to finally take action when I found the level exit.  At that moment, the titular king (and my target) walked right up to me, right on past, and started urinating in the corner right next to the level exit, out of sight of everyone else.  Easiest level ever: strangle, walk three feet, win.  But I still haven’t found a good substitute for the joy of throwing a pair of scissors twenty yards with lethal aim and force.  Last time I tried something like that in real life I got tetanus shots.

Before I forget.... [Dec. 20th, 2013|10:59 am]
I'm totally not checking LJ anymore.  I tried to keep up, but I let it get outta hand, so...I'm not ignoring you, I'm just in LJ bankruptcy.  Sincere apologies if I missed anything.

I'm typically on Twitter (locked, poke me and I'll let you in) and Tumblr, though.  You'd like Tumblr.  It's like an IV of picspam, a daily drip straight into your veins.  And, of course, if'n you need anything, you can always drop me a line via email -- my user name at gmail.com.

Hope y'all're doin' well.

Project 123: a work in progress [Jul. 9th, 2013|06:54 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

So I've been hammering away at this little project intermittently (and ignoring it for months on end), but I think I've finally hit a wall and need some help.

Here's the story: when playing NCAA Football 12 for the Playstation 3, I took great delight in the create-a-school function.  You get to create your own teams, logos, uniform colors, stadiums, and customize the entire roster.  So I had a few favorite teams put in pretty quickly.

But then, I thought, why stop there?And things get messy from here.Collapse )

No, I'm not here [Apr. 26th, 2013|12:42 pm]
If you're really looking for me, try Tumblr or see if I recognize you in Twitter. I'm all but given up on LJ. I'm in bankruptcy right now, means that I'm way far behind in some of my friends' daily doing, and I miss that, but I'm going to have to seriously swatch down the crap on my feeds before I can ever make sense of it again. If'n you need to follow me to whatever's next, hunt me down from words above. A picspam may not happen again...or then again, it may, I dunno anymore. Figured with everything else going on, this was a good point to check in.

YAY! You made it! Note that if Joss Whedon had been picspamming you, he'd have been canceled four posts ago.

Now your life is your own again.

Can you tell that I randomized the order of these? Well, I sorted them alphabetically, which is as good as randomizing, isn't it?
