I might've found my next tattoo design...
Shit, it's been a while since I'd posted anything. No tales of world travels, no major work achievements - just went rogue for a while. I have a tendency to focus so much outwardly that I often ignore my own needs. Basically, shit grew to a point that I couldn't ignore, got overwhelmed and shut down for a while. Fortunately, my two best friends intervened & knocked the sense in me to ask for help. Long story short, I've been medicated for depression, I moved out of a highly fucked up living situation (a blog entry all its own), and ended a relationship I previously wouldn't admit was going nowhere. I'm in my new apartment now, and my ability to deal with shit is better by far.
I fell behind in my gaming this last couple months. The move fucking drained me (& I had next to nothing to start with). I am mostly playing Defiance, which has grown on me despite its shortcomings. My buddy Dave kept pushing me to at least rent the game, which Redbox didn't carry. He ended up buying & sending me a copy. I've also played a little bit of Tiger Woods 14 and rented Bioshock Infinite a couple nights. I'll get back into my former groove soon enough.
Anyway, gotta get ready for Mothers Day. My mom's coming over to check out the apartment (which I refused to send her pictures of, just so I can see her expression when she does first see it). I'll try not to be such a stranger around here.
Likely, how I started on the road to Tech Support...
Happy National Video Games Day!
People need to fucking think before they act. People should just fucking think anyway, but especially before they do something, because their smallest fuck-up could completely fuck up someone else's day. I'm ready to hurt a motherfucker.
I'm throwing this out there for anybody who has played Sleeping Dogs: Perhaps I didn't give the game enough time, but doesn't it feel like just another GTA clone? Should I give the game another shot, or can I just move on?
Following yesterday's announcement of The Elder Scrolls Online, Bethesda Softworks launched the official announcement trailer. Enjoy!
Earlier this week, Bethesda also "announced" the first Skyrim DLC, titled "Dawnguard". Beyond the below picture, all we know is that it releases this summer for Xbox 360 & that further details will be revealed at E3. (But if the arrows are any promise of a crossbow, my excitement level just doubled).
The Elder Scrolls Online was just revealed to be ZeniMax Online's long-rumored MMO. Game Informer's next cover announced the game this morning. The mag says The Elder Scrolls Online will take place across the "entire land of Tamriel," approximately one thousand years before Skyrim's place in time. The story will focus on daedric prince Molag Bal as he attempts to make Tamriel part of "his demonic realm."
The game's director is Matt Firor. "It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years," he says. "The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise." The game's July cover reveal will detail a variety of the game's possibilities: soloing, public questing, and a unique new take on player-vs-player, in which the three factions battle over sections of land or a desired position of power.
More will be revealed tomorrow in a "brief teaser trailer" of the game, GI says. We've got our double-horned helm on while we wait, just in case.
Update: Bethesda's PR says the game will launch for both PC and Mac.
If I knew I wouldn't have to further upgrade my PC for it, I would definitely make the Diablo III investment. Regardless, enjoy this commercial if you haven't seen it yet:
On a side note, I'm not attacking any particular person in recent blogs - I'm simply making blanket statements about my recent views of humanity. If I provoked some kind of thought, that can happen... but there was no intended target.
