The Daily Hotness: Talk Like A Pirate Day 2012

11:59 PM on 09.19.2012 // Ian Bonds

I love Talk Like A Pirate day, despite the fact that I don't ever remember to participate. My friends Captain Dan and the Scurvy crew celebrate it every single day however (in fact, it's Dan's real birthday). This is a song from last year's event. These guys are great fun, and were even on America's Got Talent this past season (where they were unceremoniously voted off before even getting 30 seconds into their song).

Arrr.

Apologies for the lack of Experience Points lately! I'm taking a short break from writing them, but don't worry. They'll be back soon enough!

Adventure games are a big part of the indie scene, but there's a reason their popularity plummeted as graphics evolved. This clicking on everything, just in case, nonsense is for the birds. 90s birds, but birds.

Spotted some "The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3" (1989) DVDs in a store. Hearing music and sound effects from the game is more amusing than it should be - although the running shrill gets old quickly.

Diablo 3 patch 2.3.0 equals more grinding. Good.

Funny coincidence: Last week saw the release of Until Dawn, which talked about a Canadian tribe of Native Americans called the Cree,and last night a Cree woman (Ms. Canada) won the Ms. Universe contest. Butterfly Effect updated.

If I was to play through the NES library, besides being madness, what order do I do it? Alphabetically or Release date-wise? Whats the Dtoid universe think?

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles for the first time in about 107 hours. Got tired of attempting to clear as many sidequests as there were left available. Maybe in NG+...
