Being a Coward on Purpose

Credit to deviantart member ~wynahiros You stand before a towering spider beast. Your hands grip tightly to nothing but a flimsy sword and a shoddily-painted wooden shield. The sound of the monolith arachnidís mandibles snapping back and...

Shortblog: Mi nombre es John Marston

Don't try and fake it. Right now, while reading this, you're thinking about playing Red Dead Redemption. It's alright, you're not alone. But, for a moment, let's just talk about it. No, no. Don't worry. No spoilers here. The game's ...

 
 
 
 
 
 

An Aside About Side Quests

Being Charitable +1: Helping a Gamer Girl

I understand that this post is only partially related to video games, but if I've noticed anything about gamers over the years, it's that they are often some of the most generous people out there. I've heard of more than a few stories of g...

 
 
 
 

It's Dangerous to Go Alone. Take This.

About AwesomeExMachinaone of us since 6:13 PM on 07.28.2009

Twenty four years ago I was adorable. Now I'm inquisitive and hilarious.



I have a plastic tooth to replace one lost in a mosh pit during my more ridiculous high school years. I speak shitty German and I ride a bike. My Xbox gets so much use, I'm sometimes embarassed. But I'm unemployed, so my time is spent writing blogs on the internet, reading good literary fiction, and playing video games.

In the grand scale of things, I'm a late-bloomer. My parents banned all consoles from my house as a kid. See what you've done? Now I game constantly to make up for years of lost time.

I won't list my favorites, because you've probably seen ten lists like it before me.

There's a life-sized Boba Fett standee in my living room.
