Alright, I’m going to finish up a game from my backlog, damn it. I’ve been procrastinating for way too long. I’ll be working on The Last of Us starting next week. Today, I’m playing Project Zomboid then Borderlands right after then the Kinect rematch with Brett will begin.
I’ve had a few days away from everything, and caught up on some rest and sleep. Now I gotta start on this damn backlog. I got Outlast for an early bday gift from Brett, thank you :) for adding another game to my backlog lol
I haven’t felt like myself, so I think it’s time for me to get back on track with gaming.
So I made an 8 bit pic of myself as you can possibly see from my avatar. Then I made Brett one. And I nearly started on another one.
Please. Someone stop me.
On the bright side, I finished a game from my backlog. WOOO!
Teaser: New to games? Guide -
Please check this out:
Work in progress mission statement: We aim to be an inclusive hub for people who are interested in getting into games but are not sure where to start. We will do this by presenting a wide variety of gaming experiences for a diverse audience in an accessible (devoid of jargon) and friendly format. The games we feature must not be offensive to marginalized groups of people.
After seeing comiXology’s “New to comics?” page yesterday I thought it would be really cool to have something like that for games. And then a bunch of my friends also thought it would be really cool! So I guess we’re doing this now.
Send us an email at email@example.com if you’re interested in joining the discussion and helping shape the project. Even if you’re not into games, we’re specially curious why not. (Because we’re making this thing for you!)
They’re having a vidya gamez social at work on Thursday where they’re encouraging us not to work and wear t-shirts/jeans. o_O Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd, there’s going to be a cosplay contest and a gaming t-shirt contest.
You know what that means. I get to strut around with my new Minecraft shirt on Thursday ^_^ woot!
Extra Life 2013…
Before: Thanks to Jess, I reached my fundraising goal. I was completely nervous and excited. Stream went down within minutes and wouldn’t connect. Switched servers and woo, it worked. (Yep, Brett’s idea, btw. He’ll never let me live that down).
During: played games from my backlog, and had some of my coworkers stop by my stream and checked in every so often. Brett helped by being a support with the food and snacks, and allowing me to bother him every so often for a break. Started and finished Fable 3, which I hadn’t planned on and kind of regret but not really. Talked to a few of the guys from the site and Twitter. Mikhail stayed up with me until my final hour.
Btw, thank you very much to those who took the time to support, donate, view my stream, chat and kept me from going crazy. I was nervous about streaming for the first time and you guys helped out with the jitters. I appreciated the support!
Aftermath: Still recovering from Saturday’s gaming marathon, I took the afternoon off and just sat in front of the tv. I don’t even think I was paying attention to what was going on. Had an early morning meeting, and remember bits and pieces of it. I learned that 25 straight hours might not be a great idea for next year, so I’m breaking it up into two days and taking that Monday off. Because fuck that Monday.
Training for next year will officially start some time this weekend or next.
Sorry guys, but I gotta bug you yet again.
I’m playing games and streaming for 25 hours tomorrow for Extra Life and their gaming marathon to support local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. All donations I collect are going to the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio.
Check out my page here. Support us and donate today or tomorrow. I did set another goal since I reached my first one from $100 to $250.
I’ll start my stream at 8:00am CST tomorrow morning, so stop by, suggest some games and hang out. Here’s a link to my Twitch channel. My game lineup is listed on my channel, feel free to suggest any games and I’ll try to accommodate the requests. Unfortunately, Contagion is not working with my computer.
Thank you all for your support!
Next Saturday is the Extra Life Gaming Marathon and I’m $10 away from my goal. Check out the pages below and support us today!

So I’ve been trying to put together a list of games to play. I’m thinking about an hour or two each.
I’m taking requests and other ideas as well. I’m scheduling in food and snacks too so…there will be plenty of those. No caffeine for me though, I’ve completely given it up and will possibly die between hour 5 or 6 from being without it. At least, that’s what my brain is threatening me with.
Thank you to those who have already donated, and Jess for helping out with the fundraising. Well, she practically did my fundraising for me lol thanks!
EDIT: I would sooooooooo play Euro Truck Simulator 2, but I’ve only got the demo for now. Soon, I hope.
Wait, Metallica has a 3D movie coming out? Did I see that right, or am I still in sick mode? I don’t know how I feel about that. Eh, probably nothing…nope.
I’ve missed out on a lot. No GTA V or Saints Row IV, but I did get Prison Architect, Tropico 3 and 4. So that evens out, right? Right?! I know. Lying to myself isn’t going to help. Currently, I’m working on a review or two. My review for Game Dev Tycoon is available on Darkstation. I’m starting back up on my backlog with either The Last of Us or Fallout:NV. I haven’t decided just yet, but I’m leaning towards The Last of Us.
I should also be streaming once again, if I can get my setup ready to go for Extra Life by 11/02. Check out the links below for more info on Extra Life and our fundraising pages. Please donate and support.

So yet again, I’ve fallen behind posting anything on here. Crap. I’ve put off The Last of Us so I can play more of my backlog and now I’ve abandoned the backlog once again. I have been playing Goldeneye on 64 and attempting to beat it on Secret Agent then 00 Agent, but I sort of switched over to Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 and Vigilante 8 after fixing it (Fixing it = air duster).
I’m going to try to start Amnesia again, After my failure to play Bioshock 1 and 2 throughout the summer, I figured it should be my punishment for slacking off and not being interested in Bioshock. It’s also part of my Steam backlog, so it’ll be something to get off my list. Besides, I’m chickening out on Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. So maybe, I’ll have the guts to play that next year or the next year after that or possibly never.
I think I have what games I want to play for the Extra Life event on 11/02. Check out our Team Page and my Fundraiser page (links on my previous post) and please support/donate/share. This is what I have so far: TF2, CS:GO or CS:S, Prison Architect, Alan Wake, Fable III, Metro 2033, SuperPower 2, and possibly Project Zomboid too. Damn it. I’m open to suggestions in my scheduling, so please feel free to advise. I might buy Prison Architect just for that day….ok ok, I’ve always wanted that game. I'll be stream testing this week and next just to get used to streaming, because I have no idea what the hell I'm doing :) Feel free to stop by on there too, I'll post the link once I get everything sort of running.
I’ve finally decided on what phone I’m getting. Yes, yes I know, I’ve been indecisive with that but it looks like I’m switching to the Galaxy S4 next month. I was going to wait for the newest iPhone, but ehhhh…… yeah, I’m sticking with this decision.
