Greg was the ultimate doer and the ultimate nice guy


On June 13, 2014 one of my friends and former teammates Greg Ashe (DaintyGoose) was killed in an accident in Irvine California.  I was (and still am) shocked to hear about it.  How is it possible that someone I was only talking to a short time ago is no longer with us?  It doesn’t make sense.  This is the same ...

ADP: Coming in hot


And I don’t mean adenosine triphosphate!  The more I play Dark Souls II the less I understand From Software’s reasoning behind creating a new ADP stat.  They clearly looked at Dark Souls endurance stat and thought “hey, that seems pretty powerful, maybe we should tone it down a bit”.  And so they did.  Now we have vitality and vigor (neither ...

Have’s and Have Not’s


Tonight at work I accidentally kinda sorta stumbled onto one of those areas of conversation you’re not supposed to bring up at work.  It just sort of happened, all sudden like.   At one point I remember thinking to myself, “dear god, what are you doing?  Do you realize where you’re at?!”  But then the other half of me tells ...

Must See Anime


As promised, per what I said in the stream tonight I’ve thrown up a section pertaining to must see Anime.  I know someone said there was something about a German Beer and someone else mentioned 13 episodes of a waifu wombo-combo.  I’m a big fan of anything that makes sense, but then again I suppose I’m open to some things ...

H1Z1 Zombie DayZ Post-Apocalyptic Farming Simulator…game


From Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) comes a DayZ spinoff that they’re classifying as a zombie survival apocalyptic thriller.  From what I’ve gathered, they’re attempting to bring over all the best from DayZ in addition to expanding on the “genre” with their own content.  SOE has promised a game that already has a robust item creation toolset, weapons, armor, vehicles, houses, ...

Still Alive! DayZ food for thought


 I was browsing the interwebs today as I’m regularly wont to do and stumbled upon this kickstarter that’s a 2D side-scrolling open-world sandbox-style survival/horror game!  A big chunk of what initially caught my attention was the games focus on matches; 30 minute matches that is.  Everyone starts off with the goal of finding a cure.  If you don’t find a ...

Dark Souls II 1.03 patch


I’ve included the patch notes and details inside.  IMO the most useful update to come out of the patch is the potential upgrade of the bonfire and start menu.  I’m hoping speed and accessibility is part of that as they seem to take unnecessarily long.  While we’re at it I wouldn’t mind moving Emerald Herald’s ability to level you up ...

Dark Souls II First Impressions


It’s been about a week or so since Dark Souls II dropped for PS3 and Xbox 360 and it’s about another month yet before it drops on the PC (boo).  I have several playthroughs going right now, the primary being a strength based build with about 45 hours invested.  My secondary playthrough is a pure caster int/dex and has around ...
