At my son's wrestling tournament. I just looked down to see one of my other sons playing a demo of Monster Hunter that he figured out how to download. Looks like I'm doing something right as a parent.


Just wanted to say thanks for all the positive vibes yesterday; it meant a lot. This afternoon was much harder than I was expecting.


Our last night together hanging out... trying not to bawl my eyes out. It isn't working.


We're going to have to put our dog to sleep this Friday. She had some sort of neurological issue, and she's losing more and more control of her back half. It's heartbreaking seeing her in pain and struggling, and this is going to destroy the kids.


A buddy of mine showed me a video of fighting the Phantom Train in Final Fantasy XIV. I couldn't take it anymore, and I resubbed. Now to get used to all the systems in the game again and finish Heavensward. I missed this game!


Forecast was 6-12 inches of snow where I live. School was closed, day care was opening late. I stayed up late planning on a lazy day home. This is what I woke up to. Guess I'm working after all!


Oddly, last night I had a dream about playing Bloodborne. Since I never finished it, now seems like the perfect time to start.


After seeing a lot of love in here for Into the Breach, I decided to pick it up, and I am so glad I did. It's going to be one of those games that makes me two hours late to bed on a consistent basis. Who needs enough sleep anyway?


Congratulations on becoming a dad Chris! I bet your child has already finished 4 games.


I'm late to the party here, and everyone's probably already passed out, but happy birthday vxxy! I'll just help myself to some leftover cake crumbs. Also is(was) it Occams' birthday or not? I'm a bit confused.


I saw the preview for the next The Walking Dead. The Goddamn trash people are in it. Ugh.


President Trump has finally united the world. People of all religions, races, political persuasions, etc. can agree that there's no fucking way he would have rushed a gunman while unarmed (or even while armed).


Tonight I thought I'd mix things up a bit and take a tiny chip off my enormous movie backlog by watching Get Out. I'm glad I watched it, and really enjoyed it. I was expecting it to end a bit differently though.


There is documentation for my department on the SharePoint site that is done in comic sans. You've gotta be fucking kidding me. (Getting pissed at a font was a nice moment of levity for this week)


My heart just isn't in it today. Totally stressed out. Is 9 am too early to start drinking? (Long bitch-fest in comments)


The length of Dragon Quest VII is getting ridiculous at this point. I've just gotten the flying thing at the Divine Shrine around 140 hours. (That's padded a bit from falling asleep while playing in bed) How many more hours is this game?


Nobody's going to mention the best president of all? Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho will not be beaten.


Last night, I had a dream that Vadicta was breaking into my house and taking pictures of the inside of my freezer so he could post them online. Nobody would believe me that he was doing this. I need better dreams.


Hmmmm....firing up Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age on PC. Which Soundtrack version does everyone like best? Original, Reorchestrated, or OST?


The kids have The Fairly Oddparents on right now. The voice of that fucking green haired fairy could drive me to murder.


That game was crazy! An Eagles Super Bowl win right before starting the new job is the best thing I could ask for.


I put my two year old son down to get a nap. He sat up several minutes later and exclaimed "This is fucking stupid!"


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
