I love bathroom graffiti. Unfortunately there's nothing hilariously misspelled here, but I gotta find out who this "Shema" is.


 
 
 

I think I may have lost my mind. Going down to Virginia Beach Labor Day weekend, because my wife is running a half marathon. I signed up.

 
 
 

Happy Fathers Day, fellow Destructoid dads! I'm going to go play some Mario Kart with the kids after breakfast to start this day off right.

 
 
 

Started ranked HotS for the first time at the end of the season, getting placed in mid bronze. Did my placements this season and started in the low tier of silver. First game, tank and healer argue the entire time, sending me right to a demotion match. :\

 
 
 

Karto home, you will be missed minutes from now when all your spam gets nuked.

 
 
 

Finally got a date night out with absolutwife for the first time in a couple months. Grabbed something quick at Chipotle and saw Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2. We both enjoyed it a lot! It was good to have some adult time.

 
 
 

So far the most exciting thing about E3 for me is getting a Snickers bar.


 
 
 

The year is 1933. A young orphan and her faithful dog know the sun will come out tomorrow. RedHead Adoption.

 
 
 

Wes's last name isn't "LikesTacos"? I don't know what to believe in anymore.

 
 
 

You know what I miss more than anything since becoming a parent? Going to the movies. If I'm lucky I see maybe 3 or 4 a year out anymore. Wanted to see the new Alien movie in the theater, but today's the last day it's showing anywhere near me. :(

 
 
 

This week has kinda sucked (although have been having some fun in ranked solo HotS). Is it over yet?

 
 
 

Stopped for pizza with the kids. A woman backed into my car and then drove away when I got out to check out the damage. I only saw the first 3 digits of her license plate and a handicapped placard. Filed a report, but not expecting the police to find her.

 
 
 

I was inspired to see Twin Peaks since I've heard so many good things about it and it's on NetFlix. I saw the episode that reveals the killer and I'm aware that it supposedly gets pretty bad after this. How bad does it get? Should I stop?

 
 
 

Caught up on the current season of The Flash and saw the finale. I'm not sure that I really want to continue in the next season. I really like the characters, but the writing has really gone downhill.

 
 
 
 
 

I was going to make a post about my experience yesterday, but it ended up being way too long to cram in as a comment in a QPost. Is it okay if I post it as a blog, considering it's not video game related?

 
 
 

After over 10 miles and nearly 4 hours of being scraped, bruised, frozen, and shocked, absolutwife and I are done worth Tough Mudder!


 
 
 
 

This will be my last post of the day on the subject. Thank you Chris for all the amazing music and the memories that were made with it. Here's a cover from his last appearance on Howard Stern.



 
 
 

Newest update to Tales from the RimWorld is going up...only over a month after I started working on it. I've been busier than I thought I was lately.

 
 
 
 
 

One more of Chris Cornell's solo songs, another one I really loved. This is hitting me harder than I would have expected. I really don't want to be at work right now.



 
 
 

Soundgarden is my favorite band of all time. So glad I got the chance to finally see them at Lollapalooza when they reunited, because now I'll never get to again. First time I'm in tears over a celebrity death. Here's my favorite Soundgarden song...



 
 
 

Wow! What a season of Agents of SHIELD. If you gave up on it due to the first couple episodes, you've truly done yourself a disservice.

 
 
 

My PC bad luck streak continues. Got some free time to get things put together yesterday, only to find that the new heat sink was missing threads on one of the pins to keep it held down. Finding out at 10:00 on a Thursday night sucks. More in comments.

 
 


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
Halo
Chrono Trigger
Planescape: Torment
Spelunky
Undertale
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
