Hey hey, everyone. It's been a little while. Sorry for no blog post for a while. We've been... busy... I think? Anyway, sup? How are you? I'm good I suppose. We don't really have any games tonight. pk fire is planning on hosting a game if he can get it online alright. And I will be playing Final Fantasy XIV until the end of time... and Awesomenauts. So let's do this!

(I didn't have a blog theme for this week for videos or header and footer images, so uh... Have some of my random FFXIV screenshots?)

It's once again that time of year. Christmas? Forget that. The Steam Holiday Sale. The sale that makes me too broke for last minute presents. Surprisingly, however, the sale has been going for 24 hours and I haven't bought anything... yet. This normally happens every year with me, where I start the sale not really wanting anything, but end up buying tons of stuff.

Oh yeah. I guess it's also Christmas time too. Christmas events have started in two of my favorite games: Final Fantasy XIV, and Team Fortress 2. I've made sure to have the TF2 server updated for the event, so why not stop by for a bit and play?

And remember, next week, when you're with your family for Christmas (or Wednesday for those who don't celebrate), don't forget when you're sitting around the tree to praise Gaben.

So who bought what as part of a sale this weekend? I bought a couple Kingdom Hearts games on Amazon, as well as the Mega64 BluRay set seen in the video above. Retail wise, I haven't bought anything, mainly because shopping on Thanksgiving, as well as stores being open on Thanksgiving, is bullshit. But, with what I've been hearing about the stores yesterday, Thanksgiving shopping is here to stay. Bullshit.

But I'm not here to complain about how stupid and mindless consumers are, nor how greedy or heartless the heads of some of the retail chains are. I'm here to heartlessly and mindlessly make you all fight. We got a lot of games today, so there's most likely something you will like. So let's do it!

(Sorry for the crudity of this blog. I'm at work so I don't have much time for images or anything like that. I have no idea what the video link is for below, but I'm going to post it anyway.)

So. How about that PlayStation 4, eh? It came out today. Then you've got that Xbox One next week. That's a thing. So what about us? PC elitists would say that the next generation has been upon us for a while now. And you know what? They're right. Windows 8 is the next generation in computing, with Livetiles to give you notifications without even opening an app, and a smooth touchscreen interface. And if you're already a Windows 8 customer, upgrade to Windows 8.1 now, for an even smoother and reliable experience. And forget what I said about the Xbox One being for "everyone else" earlier. Buy seven for yourself.

Oh. I guess you guys are doing this Friday Night Fights thing. Well, it's a good thing you're most likely doing so on a Windows operating system! Wanting to play some of these games on MacOS or Linux? Deal with it... Wait. I'm being told lots of these games are now coming to those OS's. Ummmm... PLEASE BUY WINDOWS AND XBOX PLEASE.

Hey everyone, Phil here. If you're wondering what FYF stands for, it's Fuck You Friday. My brother started calling Fridays this, because for both of us Fridays always suck. This one kicked off in a horrid way for me too. But that's ok. Because at the end of every Friday is FNF to let me unwind. I'll be on PS3 this week @ 10pm PST with some GTA Online (Just got it), but I will return to my PC brothers and sisters next week with some of usual odd and niche games. -Love you guys.

This weekend will mark the first time I've gone to Disneyland in nearly 15 years. I'm pretty dang excited. Not only is this my first time going in ages, but I'm also going for Mega64's Game Days event. Saturday involves a panel where Mega64 is going to be showing off new videos and other things, and I'll be going to California Adventure after (Last time I went to Disneyland they were still building California Adventure). Then on Sunday is a group outing to Disneyland with Mega64 and the Internet Soldierz (Mega64's name for their fans). I'm a huge fan of Mega64 and they're always one of the highlights of PAX for me, so I can't wait to see them again. Not to mention Disneyland. If anyone happens to be going to Game Days, feel free to say hi or something!

As for fights, there's not much going on. But good news everyone! I have the day off, so I'm finally going to host something again! It's going to be semi-early though, since I'm going to be leaving to go out of town later in the evening. So let's fight, alright?
