To any of you that have experience with unemployment benefits, how long does one typically wait to receive anything? It's been 3 weeks, and haven't gotten anything yet. Stressing out as bills are looming very close and wife has surgery next week.


I've done it. I finally watched The Room. There was nothing that could have prepared me for how wonderfully terrible the whole experience was, and I have to whole-heartedly recommend it for anyone who has not yet been exposed to Tommy Wiseau's trainwreck.


After losing my job, I honestly wasn't expecting anything for Christmas. I was happy that the kids would be covered. Last night my wife told me she had saved a bit extra, and I could pick a game or two. Grabbed Wolfenstein 2 on sale. I love this woman.


All my notes for the next installment or two of Tales from the Rimworld were on my work laptop. Shit. Do I start fresh (there's a big new patch to try out), or just leave a gaping hole in the story with cliff notes of what I think happened?


So I just got fired. Happy holidays?


I'm not really even all that excited about Thanksgiving dinner itself. However, I am declaring all out war on the dessert table.


8 episodes into The Punisher and having a great time watching. I'd put this right behind Daredevil in terms of my ranking of the Netflix shows.


How did I miss Rocket League's Switch release? How is it compared to every other version out there?


Wow...just read an article on IGN detailing what $100 got them in Battlefront II (obviously before the crates were removed). This shit was worse than I thought. I'll add the link and some highlights in the comments.


Happy Birthday Spiders. Here's a pic of one.


#selfietoid Let's get it right this time. Starting my day at work. This is before the soul crushing begins.


Screw it. I love the Dark Souls series, and have had a blast with III, but fuck you Darkeater Midir. This is the first time a Souls boss has just sucked the fun right out of the experience for me. Don't feel like I'm improving after countless deaths.


I decided to stop being a terrible person and finally watched both seasons of Stranger Things. Dustin is awesome. I'm also a fan of Steve and Hopper.


Happy birthday to my fellow sexy bald dude!


Also happy birthday Chris and Scruff!


This fight....damn. I'm having a great time with it despite getting my ass kicked. Got him down to about 10% and I was shaking from the adrenaline rush.


I don't get the filter on names in this game. They will turn Knight into K***t because of "nig" but Fuckbringer makes it right through.


Had my phone interview. It was a good conversation, but the position wouldn't be right for me. It would be 65+ hour weeks with nights and weekends, so terrible for having young children and a wife working nights. Still feel positive for whatever is next.


Phone interview today at 5:45 for one of the jobs I recently applied for. Ironically it's the one I'm least qualified for out of the bunch, but they are looking to bring someone in and fully train them. That I can definitely handle.


On this season of The Walking Dead...


I used to think that people might be overstating the poor hit detection of PvP in Dark Souls III. Nope. Everyone was right; It's terrible! There's no point in even trying to parry.


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
