dethtoll dot mid: hah, awesome
dethtoll dot mid: i just discovered a feature in gzdoom
dethtoll dot mid: that lets me change the way the music is played so it sounds more old-school rather than the full-featured general MIDI
dethtoll dot mid: it sounds like older sound cards do now
dethtoll dot mid: it's so nerdy that this should actually matter to me

Hot or not? [27 Feb 2007|06:53pm]

I was watching a friend of mine play a video game yesterday. I find him very attractive....except when he's playing video games.

I've only just realized that someone can be UNattractive playing video games; and it's not because of his looks or anything like that.

He sighs a lot, and it's not your typical 'I suck at this' sigh. He sighs as though he is LITERALLY in PAIN or some form of GREAT discomfort.

So thinking of unattractive playing styles of video games got me thinking about the opposite end of the spectrum, what's ATTRACTIVE in video gaming?

To me it's intense concentration, if playing mainly solo, though capable of carrying on a conversation when needed (which is how I am). Maybe the occasional 'face' (like biting the tongue or, as my habit is, biting my lips). And when playing with other people? Aggressive, smack talk! Mainly because that's how I do it.

So what is attractive and unattractive in another person playing video games for you folks?

Okay too funny... [05 Feb 2007|01:00pm]

I'm a reporter for a newspaper and I was writing down the slug for a picture I took for the newspaper. The picture had a man who was barbequeing, so I naturally put the slug as: 0702bbq5 (we can only use 3 letter identifiers for stories and pictures).

Then it came time for putting down the description for my editors. And of course I instantly knew what it had to be:

I chuckled all the way back to my seat.

i made an excel spreadsheet detailing a huge list of missions in thief, both official and fan-made, that i was going to play, at a rate of one per night until i was finished with all the ones in my list. i've been playing since august. i won't be finished until november.

does that make me dorky?

Eheheh.. [30 Mar 2006|10:46am]

I realized the other day that I have Nintendo-coloured underwear. They're black, the band is Nintendo-grey, and there's red on it. Beat that?

bad nerd music video [23 Jan 2006|11:59am]

The song isn't so terrible, and perhaps the cheesiness is purposeful (it is extremely cheesy).

Unicorns L.A. by My Barbarian.

It's Quicktime, for anyone that doesn't have it. And it's scary (work safe, but emotionally it may scar you).

So, I was idling on IRC (bad enough, right?), when I saw this:

* Joins Grue (...

My heart leapt in my chest, I recoiled from the computer, and said "Oh shit!" I was on the phone with my friend Jon at the time, too. He was so confused until I told him what happened. He laughed at me, but it was really only because it happened to me, not him.

I have met my retirement role model: Check her in action here.

I am AMAZED by her.

She has a blog too!

Just goes to show that your grandparents CAN get into games if they just have an open mind.

Yar! [12 Nov 2005|11:53pm]

..Is it wrong of me to think Predator is sexy, to shiver/squirm when I hear the sound (you know the one), and to get a tattoo of the mark?

In addition: I went to videogameslive, and it rocked my socks. There was something else, but I really can't remember it.

Shadow of the Colossus [25 Oct 2005|06:01pm]

I cried at the end of this game, I couldn't help myself. I cried at the end of ICO too. I've never cried during a video game before, not even during FFVII (you know when I mean).

I saw someone wearing a t-shirt on der TeeVee that said "I went to New Mexico and all I got was an E.T. cartridge, and then I fell in a pit."

And I laughed.

I kinda want that shirt.

doom. [15 Aug 2005|08:07pm]

is it geeky of me that, once i knew the map number, i instantly recognized and knew what this, this, this and this looked like originally? even though i haven't actually played the original maps in years?

(that last one is VERY different from the original!)
