I am me. I grew up gaming and now am pretty much stuck with it. Graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science. Looking for a job. I am hoping to one day break into the gaming industry and leave my mark upon it.
I also tend to have insomnia and will end up ranting with various degrees of clarity.
Feel free to give me a shout if you are bored. Just let me know who you are first.
Here's a little experiment I've done recently; one that I invite you all to take place in. Go to any article written by Jim Sterling (review, editorial, news, whatever). Scroll through the comments and click on the names of people leaving overly negative comments. Count how many replies they have to various articles were they've replied to negatively. Divide that by the number or positive comments they leave multiplied by the number of blog posts they have. This should give you a pretty good idea of their contribution to the Destructoid community. The lower the number, the better!
It was bad enough hearing the raving once a week when it was 6 months off, but for those of us who are unable to go due to financial or other situations, it gets annoying. The coming of August heralded more chatter than I care to listen to. Barely a single conversation can go by with out someone mentioning PAX, regardless of the subject. The ranting about who is doing what, who can't afford what because they are going and how much that sucks, and of course the repeated "why aren't you going" questions as if it were simply a minor thing to hop on a plane and rent a hotel for a few nights. I'm sure even D-toid staffers who can't afford the trip have had enough at this point.
So for those of us who really wanted to go, but for various reasons (like barely being able to make student loan payments) who can't make, please express your enthusiasm in a less exuberant fashion. It will keep the rest of us from wanting to cave your heads in with a bat.
When we last saw our Sims, Psycho was rather chared.
Well it appears that Naia doesn't mind sharing a bed with anyone. Here I am hopping into bed with her. Psycho gets in the bath.
She really needed it.
Croc got up and took a page from Bunny's book.
Bunny, on the other hand, got out of bed and made waffles. They turned out quite well.
Kacie is not the only one who drinks early apparently.
Naia gave a concert to no one this time.
Then she went swimming, she gets a lot done.
Words cannot describe what is going on here. I think there is a bromance going on here.
Hmm... Kacie and I are going somewhere.
It seems that they are going out to eat.
Psycho decided to make up with the maid after she was mean to her the other day.
Bunny plays some chess and learns the logic skill. Impressive.
I decide to take the time to know someone else. Hey, wait a sec...
After some time talking to myself, the other me eventually left.
Apparently I was left scarred and needed a hug. Kacie provided.
Naia went to work.
WHOA! Kacie and I kissed and I missed the screen shot. What is going on here?
Meanwhile, at the house, everyone is going about there business as usual.
That logic skill is really working out for Bunny. Here we see him talking to himself.
He then went and fixed the bathtub.
Kacie cleaned up the puddle to help him out.
Then she crawled into bed with me. Man this is getting weird.
To wrap things up, We see Naia playing another outdoor concert.
The best of friends are still at it.
Well, there you have it. I would like to amend my previous statement about introducing new on Monday. It occurs to me that I have something planned that evening, so I will add them on Tuesday. See you all next time.
Before we start, let us have a moment of silence for my now dead 120 GB hard drive. Your data shall be missed.
Welcome back, Real D-toid persons. When we last left our friends, Bunny was finally able to take a bath now that everyone has gone to sleep. Let's catch up with him after his bath.
Ooooookay... Apparently he decided to have a good sit on a different bath tub. Shortly after this, he headed to bead amused wearing his street clothes. Bunny, my friend, you seem a touch unstable. I like it!
Kacie was the first to wake up, followed shortly by Croc. He was awakened by a deep hunger, since he spent the day before prancing about in his underpants, he forgot to eat. He shared some leftover horrible waffles with Kacie.
I'm not entirely sure what happened here. I think Croc wanted tickets to Aerox's gun show.
Since Psycho ate the last of the horrible waffles, Naia tried her hand at cooking again.
Oh hey, they turned out pretty good this time. Oh, and notice the phone on the wall? I neglected to give them one before. Psycho called a repair man for the toilet, and hired a maid.
Bunny got up and made sure he looked the same in every mirror he could find.
More bathroom troubles today. Kacie got walked in on as well.
Whoa! Kacie took a break from drinking to complement me on my appearance. Something seems to be going on here.
Psycho started pushing around the maid she hired. I don't know why. About this time, Bunny and Naia got mysterious cell phone calls from various community directors. They are apparently psychic and know what they have been up to, as Bunny was offered cash to be more athletic by the community athletics director and Naia was offered much the same to improve her musical ability by the local theatre troupe. I would have had screen shot of them pulling cell phones out of their asses, but they happened so suddenly that I was surprised.
Holy shit, Croc is wearing pants.
I'm starting to get the feeling that Naia is the most responsible one, as this is her shortly after getting a musical job.
Here I am getting chatted up by Psycho and Kacie, they seem to be a little jealous of each other. Things are getting odd. And Croc is in his underwear again, what the hell?
Naia is giving another random concert. This time, its blocking the computer. This upset Croc. MAYBE YOU SHOULD WEAR PANTS THEN, HUH? [/lolcapslock]
Psycho broke the dishwasher, so she decided to clean up her mess.
Ummm... I am pretty sure this is a bad idea.
Sometimes I hate it when I am right. I ran in to quickly put out the fire. Bunny thought it was pretty.
Well... looks like Psycho's clothes and hair are ruined. But does she feel any shame?
Well I guess not. She sat down and started surfing the internet.
Well, the SimToid crew is heading to bed after shuffling the rooms around (again). What will happen next time?
I have some bad news for you, so you may want to sit down.
Right now, under normal circumstances, I'd be loading up Sims 3 and preparing to record some stuff for SimToid. However, one of my computers decided it was going to wig out on me after my dog crashed into it and hit the reset button. I am currently trying to figure out what exactly happened and have the boot drive loaded into another computer that's checking out the hard drive. It will take a while, so I probably won't have much time to observe the Sims today.
But rest assured, SimToid will return, even if I have to post it far later than I would like to.
