Occam Thoughts: Stuff and things

-Playing Alan Wake. Near the end. It would be a lot scarier if the game didnít do a slow motion cut scene every time a shadow zombie showed up. Also, I watched a Verizon Wireless commercial in the game. This scared me more than the dark...

 
 
 

Friday Thoughts: Creepy Death Van Edition

Occamfail and Friday Thoughts

SO. Apparently hiding a C-blog and then working on it the next day then posting it will have it appear in yesterday's timeline. I knew this, somewhere in the dark recesses of my mind but still I foolishly went ahead and posted it, thinking...

The day I learned humility

About Occamsone of us since 7:53 PM on 02.11.2009

I am a Community Moderator for Destructoid. I am also the resident Resplendent Black Grandmother. My mind is broken glass and my heart is swollen and corpulent, like a cheeto left in a puddle of Diet Coke.

Well that certainly sounded dramatic.
