Sitting here waiting for absolutwife to go in for surgery. Details in comments. Update: Surgery was a success, she's resting a bit and I can take her home tonight.


Let's do this! Second half marathon. The first was last year down in VA Beach when I met the delightful Wes.


I don't have anything witty to go with this, so I'll keep it short and sweet. Happy birthday Dere, glad to have you around these parts.


I can't wait for the day when these bots end up inadvertently creating their own website and just spend all day spamming each other.


Electric bill was lower than expected, and discovered that Greenman has it for %20 off, so I'm able to pick up Dragon Quest XI after all!


I realize that I've married a monster. I didn't know she could go this wrong.


Nice! My favorite game so far this year is getting more content!


I'm a bit late to the party, but happy birthday Nekkid and Amna!


So we're talking Doom RPG. Is this the mobile game from over ten years ago? I remember reading a review at the time that it was pretty great, but didn't have a phone that could run it. Where are you guys getting it?


In Philadelphia (Camden technically) to see the Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson show with absolutwife. Just opened with my favorite Manson song, The Reflecting God. This is going to be a good night.


Since we couldn't do a full week off this year, took the wife and kids to Chincoteague Island for a weekend mini vacation. Hope everyone else is having a good weekend!


Blizzard definitely knows what they are doing when it comes to cinematics. Saurfang is the best.


Current status. (Rant about getting screwed by terrible luck in my last HotS game in comments)


Today we are having our annual backyard birthday party for all four of the kids together. My wife obtained some very necessary supplies.


I really enjoy the song in this short leading up to the new WoW expansion. I'm wondering if Jaina will be a raid boss at some point, being that she's clearly ready to go full on war against the horde.


Was on my way to work this morning, and caught this on Liquid Metal. I didn't know Maori Metal existed, but I thought this was pretty cool. #ArbitraryMetalTuesday


To all my fellow northeastern U.S. DToiders... Hope you're all doing okay with this ridiculous amount of rain. Stuff is flooding all over the place in my location. Luckily my house is a bit higher in elevation, or I'd be getting really nervous.


Well this is a pretty cool mod I became aware of today. It's called Storyline, and it gives your WoW quests a bit more of an RPG feel.


Had a great night with my wife last night, found out my pappy no longer has traces of cancer, and it's a beautiful evening out on the deck. The kids are playing, I'm having a beer and playing Octopath. Things are good this moment.


Do we have many WoW folks here on Destructoid? The communities feature is now up, and wondering if it would be worthwhile to create a DToid group.


Got home, and was excited to see the new login screen....


Today marks 8 years of being married to this awesome, sexy woman. That's 10 years total, amid I still get a smile on my face when she walks into the room.


About absolutfreakone of us since 1:25 AM on 08.06.2013

I'm a married father of four, and I've been gaming since I was big enough to hold an Atari 2600 controller. I tend to favor single player games, but I'm not against some multiplayer. When online, I prefer cooperative experiences, or team based competitive games with objectives.

My top genre is RPGs, and I fell in love with them after playing old ones like the original Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior, Wasteland, and the Gold Box D&D games.

Here are just a few of my favorite games:
Final Fantasy VI
Final Fantasy IV
The rest of the Final Fantasy series
The "Souls" Series
Chrono Trigger
Planescape: Torment
Skies of Arcadia
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Mario Kart 8
Super Mario World
A Link to the Past
Dwarf Fortress
Civilization 5
Metal Gear Solid 3
The Wonderful 101
Left 4 Dead 2
