About


My name is August, though you'll almost always see me with the pseudonym, Arttemis. I'm happily married to a gorgeous woman who loves to run around Italy, pick-pocketing its population and performing parkour, but is horrified to run through a zombie-infested mall, even if she has a sledgehammer with an axe attached.

I've been familiar with gaming since Atari days, but it wasn't until the release of Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 2, and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in 1998 that I was an avid fan. While those are still some of my favorite games, my favorite genre is, without a doubt, action games. DMC3 is potentially my most-played title of all time, though I can see Bayonetta taking its place.

Quick note - most of my activity is done through my phone (Xperia Play, rooted/BL unlocked), so I apologize for my plethora of typos and incoherent sentences.


Objection! - Me at PAX'09!


Happy Winner of a Free Intel Core 2 Quad Q9400! Thanks, Dtoid!

Through very generous friends, a bit of luck, and not much money at all, I've managed to amass a pretty large sum of goodies in the last couple of weeks. Be sure to look through the gallery for more pics.

Awesome Gifts:
First, I was given a Nintendo DS from fellow (incredibly awesome!) Dtoider, ShadokatRegn, who graciously passed on her original handheld when she came into possession of a DS Lite. This is actually my first portable console since I got a lime green Game Boy Color back in '98!

Just mere days later, I get a package in the mail. My friend returned my entire loaned-out GameCube collection, albeit later than I expected. Also inside, much to my surprise, was their old Wii, as well as accessories and games!

Completely by chance, I happened to find a picture from a decal website that had a set of patterns that I couldn't resist. Having just acquired a DS and Wii for free, I just had to splurge; the pictures will let you know why:

What? Your NINTENDO WII is evolving!

Congratulations! Your NINTENDO WII evolved into a REVOLUTION ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM!

I can't get over how well the retro DS and Wii skins look together.

JoeCamNet's Sale:
I was interested in several titles from Joe's long list of games for sale after he decided to thin out his collection for personal reasons. Being the complete action-genre addict that I am, I couldn't pass on a large portion of his stock, plus a few extras, for a reasonable price!

Joe was completely honest in his descriptions of the games, carefully listing each (very minor) nick or dent to the extent of a professional collector. Being used to GameStop-condition boxes and not-very-accurate Ebay descriptions, I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised at how precise his descriptions were; each game was in amazing shape, and every superfluous scuff was already mentioned.

Sneak King, Too Human, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, Otogi, Bujingai, Chaos Legion, Crimson Tears, Drakengard 1-2, Samurai Legend: Musashi, MGS: VR Missions, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Zelda: OoT

If you're interested in any of his games, definitely send him a message. He's quick to reply, very honest, accepts very reasonable prices, and ships almost instantly. Good luck, Joe!

GameStop Sale:
If you don't know about this, you should definitely check things out. I was able to score Prince of Persia in excellent condition for $12; less than two weeks ago it was $35! Depending on the store, you may find tons of classic PS2 and Xbox games for 50% off.

Thanks to a $50 gift card I had lying around, I was able to pick up a huge stash of games without paying much at all!

Bionic Commando, Prince of Persia, Castlevania: Lament of Innocence, LotR: The Two Towers, Mega Man X1-8, Shinobi, Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven/Fatal Shadows, House of the Dead 2&3, Tenchu: Shadow Assassins

PAX!!!

I'm registered, booked, and ready to go. I can't wait to see everyone there!
