Passions in life - games, music and the combination / creation of the two. Doing a lot of videogame music covers, mainly rockin'!
Spent super much time as a "competitive" FPS gamer, like this. Lost the motivation though and found the work/time/headache to fun/reward ratio to be really messed up, so quit that right before newyears '09. Back to the roots - fun games for pure enjoyment! Mega Man fo' lyfe.
Back in action after a number of months with a fried computer and overheating modem / cancelled internet connection. What better way to celebrate the new beast of a computer and connection than... ...playing single player retro & relatively simple 2D indie games?
Currently hooked on FTL: Faster Than Light which I still haven't managed to beat on Normal but am having a blast with on Easy in which really exciting and close games are being had. |Spoiler| You win some, you lose some. |/Spoiler| While I've unlocked a bunch of ships and my current favorite by far is the Federation Cruiser, I've been desperately trying to unlock the Mantis Cruiser but had no luck in even getting that quest so far.
And speaking of the Mantis and why having a proper computer again is nice, I whipped up a cover of their theme (Battle version) the other day. It has some interesting rhythms that I felt would be fun to play on guitar. The composer liked it so that made me happy!
Before that though, and following a coincidental space theme, I put together a cover of Stand Up Against Myself from good ol' Thunder Force IV. It was my first project on the new PC (after overdosing on Skyrim at eye candy settings for a week or two) and it sure is nice to be able to work on stuff without BSODs and constant CPU choking. Have at you!
