A Gaming Journal.two

I'm on a Halo 5 kick, playing it daily. On my way to beating Rise of the Tomb Raider. I like that game so much I went ahead and got this DLC:

I don't fucking like The Division and the obscene amount of schilling for it in various gaming sites I was following on twitter made me unfollow them. I'm looking at you VG247. The Street Fighter 5 beta has been pretty good, HYPED for the game's release next month.

My Bowie Drawing 1997
A drawing I did of Bowie circa 1997. One of the few drawings I've always been happy about. A few personal favorites: Everyone Says Hi.live // Something In The Air // Bring Me the Disco King.live // Natalie Merchant's Space Oddity

A Gaming Journal.one

Game journal week 1
I wish I had a kept a gaming journal during all 12 years of this blog's existence but better late than never. I'm going to try it this year. I'm going through a bit of an ADD period with games. I have a huge backlog from the massive amount of releases last fall. And then even older titles than that showing up in the rotation.

Highlights

  • Playing with my Destiny Waifu Sara using the really neat Refer A Friend feature in Destiny. Shout out to Jafku, the MVP of our Fireteam, who got the Platinum Trophy for the game.  
  • Playing U2 songs in Rock Band 4.
  • Finally being amazed by Super Mario Maker. Nintedo better wise up and give us a Zelda and Metroid maker in the future.

Check out Sara's awesome Legend of Zelda tattoo:

WTF Moment: Getting a trophy in Divinity for picking up some panties
