Cblogs of 03-23-09 and ScottyGasms


Another cblog recap, another late night. Very productive night though! Lots of website work as well as winning a semi-serious competition match in Team Fortress 2. Yay! Slowly wrapping up all these things I gotta stop committing to.

After my quarterly review I thankfully still have a job though, so I guess that makes up for having no time for nearly anything aside from bugging an unfortunate few on gtalk.

The big game that's been keeping me busy the last few days has been Retro/Grade. I won't get too much into it here, as I'm going to post a writeup about it tomorrow, but here's a gameplay video of this rhythm/shooter hybrid:

*- Ali D thinks the upcoming Star Wars MMO may be the one for him
*- A beautiful writeup on a very special grave keeper
*- GrumpyTurtle implies Daisy is into girls
*- A review of Scott Pilgrim... I'm sold!
