My very, very, very bad there. You see I, uh, well, there was this thing, and I got involved with it, and stuff happened afterward (largely having to do with the eight years previous), I lost things and sold things and moved and pawned things, and sold things, and moved and on and on and on. Long sentence short, I’m finally comfortable again…AND GAMING.
You see, this website is supposed to be about two main themes, international politics and videogames. It’s a strange mix, but I love them both, and have that passion so I figured it would work out.
Then I stopped having the time and space and internet to game and writing about a loved hobby that I didn’t currently know (the pre-requisite for all adequate and above quality writing) seemed foolish.
That, friends, neighbors and virtual enemies, has changed. And I’ve everything I need; 1)2TB of external drive space, 2) a Steam account, 3) a steady job to use 2 to fill 1, 4) a good hookup makes it all better, and 5) my own dang room to play in. In other words, Gaming Nirvana: A Place I Could Stay Forever*.
So expect my frequent diatribes regarding the stagnation of my nation and my observations of the world in which it resides to be interspersed with game reviews and stuff like this… (oh yea, I got a new camera too, FINALLY)…
Just as a general comparison..that video by itslef is up to about 300,000 views…the site itself almost 100K…seems perhaps my mass market talents ain’t in ranting. But we’ll see (going to be doing more live video on that front too in 2011). Fair warning for my fans and foes alike, RPN is back and tearing up the nets (and yes, I’m “RobotPirateNinja” or “RobotPiratNinja” on every major gaming service**)
My tastes in games is much like my taste in information, wide, varied, and skewed towards both the independent and high quality. I’ve been gaming since I was about 5, and cut my teeth on the 2600 (my internet teeth on 2600) and games built in 64K. That’s 65,536 bytes. My new hard drive has 2,199,023,255,552. Or so…roughly. Gaming has gone infinite, so I want to pick through the good stuff and play with that.
And, of course, tell y’all about it.
* Not to be confused with Gaming Paradise, which is all the above but upgraded. You can imagine it in your mind…no…better than that…keep going…keeeeep going….almost there…
** Except for the PS3. None of that Japan crap ’round these parts (sorry, practicing my smack talking skills…kids today are rather crass).
