Hello once again my lovely dtoiders! ScottyG here with yet another reserve recap! :D
this took way too long to set up, but was totally worth it :D
So yeah, I've been playing a lot of Modern Warfare 2 in my spare time. Decided to take a bit of a break from SSFIV, or at least cut back on playing it. I've reached that point where I feel like I should be better than I am, but anybody with actual skill destroys me. This might not be too bad, but I still don't feel like I'm learning anything. At least in Modern Warfare 2 I'm good enough to get by and can still pick up things easily.
I've also been growing a beard! It's only been for a few weeks though, and only because a friend asked me to for a part in her short film. Was planning to immediately shave it off when that's done tomorrow, but thanks to Gandysampras
I've learned how to deal with the itching and irritation. What do you think dtoid? I'll post a picture in the forums tonight (gotta get that badge, yo!) for comparison.
Also, Beat Box Dog sings Trololo:

Special little places
In this month's bloggers wanted prompt, we want to you talk about the physical places you may or may not appreciate in your daily lives as a gamer. Do you find the quiet monotony of public transportation like a train the perfect routine to always get a game in? Maybe you have a relative's home that brings a familiar and comforting feeling as a place and memory. I was just talking about when I played my 3DS in times of uncertainty in my car, so don't think any place is too small or insignificant to share. It could be a chair you've had for nearly half your life that you always sit on as you boot up your favorite gaming console. It could be the classic dream of a gaming room, filled wall-to-wall with your collection of video games *cough*ChillyBilly*cough* and memorabilia.
