Sorry I haven’t been around. I started working at Costco and got my start with 40 hour weeks. I also had the first nice date I’ve had in months.


I haven’t felt this way working a job since May. It’s tiring and exhausting and forces me to talk to people I don’t like but dammit it’s actual hours with actual money. For the first time since August I feel fulfilled.


Still alive, still hustling. First freelance assignment fell through, recreation manager wouldn't pick up. In between jobs as I'm going from events arena to Costco. Tightening my belt as I'm between those paychecks. Should be alright.


Should you divorce a game from its creator?

I think in essence, before hitting the dusty trail of this topic, some amount of acceptance of business practices is inevitable. However, I think it was an interesting juxtaposition of the weeks leading up to Red Dead Redemption 2's release...


Ok! Now I just have to adjust from writing enthusiast interest topics to local community hard news!


I actually have an interview with a local paper today. Excuse me as I scrounge up clips.


Alright, about to start my leg of the Extra-Life stream ahead of schedule! Check out twitch.tv/striderhoang or streamtoid for Devil May Cry 3 and donate to CHOC in Orange County California!


Jokes on you Destructoid. Everyone sandbags Soulbow for playing Siege but he’s currently raised $250 for Extra-Life charities.


I lost my Mario hat so I guess I won’t be casually dressed up tonight as I hit Main Street.


Does anyone have file copies of the Cblog Fapcast? I lost my master files to use as a portfolio.


I kind of regret not going out last night. I guess most Halloween stuff would happen on the weekend and not night of Halloween


Three months of D&D

It's been three months since I last left a cblog about what was going on in my life. Things have been hard emotionally, starting over, going cold turkey, cutting a part of my life off in order to move forward. Everyday was a new ball ...


Listening to an analysis of Saitama being depressed just sounds like me. I’m depressed. I’m just gonna go buy RDR2 as an unhealthy coping mechanism.


One match from a dating app is kind of exciting and two matches means I can explore myself more now more than ever as well but three or more is beginning to feel like that trope where you accidentally schedule two dates in the same restaurant at once.


A friend I made on an anonymous chat app now regular Snapchat friend got me back into Pokémon Go, so here’s my code! 6079 1113 7153


This is literally the best part about the Venom movie


Just as I was reconnecting with an old friend, her little brother suddenly passed away. Even if you don’t have spare money to donate to his funeral, please share it on social media. https://www.gofundme.com/in-loving-memory-of-jose-angel


Hey guys. I’m still alive. Just finished a bad week last week and hoping this one’s better. Getting some games back from my ex made me think of games you’ll never part with because they’re probably too rare. I got back Madworld and Muramasa: Demon


Having a conversation with someone I’m interested in


Streaming Road to Devil May Cry V: DMC at my twitch channel striderhoang. Come say hi!


My life is officially off the rails so I developed a plan to center myself: The Road to DMCV, stream every Devil May Cry game before DMCV releases.
