Huxley just spent like... three hours with me in Ahn'Qiraj so he could help me tame raid bosses and stuff.

He is my favorite boy! :D

I resubbed to WoW. I know I haven't played it in forever but I wanted to try out transmog and the other new stuff they've added since I last played. I transmogged Tawyn into her Karazhan gear so now she looks like this icon... just the way I have always remembered her. :) It makes playing that much more fun, which sounds silly, but it's true!

I have no idea if I'm sticking around or not. Probably long enough to see the new patch hit at least. I don't see myself going back to raiding or anything in the foreseeable future but who knows.

Now I have to pick a character to levelboost to 80 since I get that for free, apparently.

Morrowind is so great.

To answer the second part of the question, arcades pretty much don't exist anymore, which is the saddest thing that has ever happened to the world. :(

My life is pretty boring. Although I'm getting 40 hours a week now at work apparently! I wonder how long that will last. And I wonder how long it will be until it drives me (even more) nuts.

Tomorrow is my one (yes, one) day off this entire week so I will play Crusader Kings 2 all day. Because that game is amazing so far. A+++ would play forever.

My Nintendo DS games are all in a little white case about the size of my outstretched hand, and they've been missing since about a year and a half ago, when I moved from my apartment to, well... here (this was before the move to Washington.)

Well, I just spent a few hours digging through every single one of the boxes I brought with me from WA and the games aren't anywhere to be found.

Which means I probably left them in Bozeman to begin with, which means they're either in one of a dozen or so boxes high up in the garage that I can't reach, or they're in some storage locker somewhere.

Which means I can't continue my search and rescue rampage until my dad comes back from work.

I am a sad pony. :(

D'aww~

Hux got me an Xbox 360 + Skyrim for my birthday/Christmas.

I love that boy and I hope I get to keep him forever. <333

Fallout: New Vegas, Deus Ex, Space Empires IV, and Star Ruler, all for under $20 from Steam sales.

GABEN YOU ARE GOING TO BE THE DEATH OF MY WALLET

Anyways off to work in a few moments; hopefully the day goes by quickly.

Pretty sure there is nothing that a good game of Alpha Centauri won't fix

It distracts me from being sick

It distracts me from being nervous or scared or panicked

Please don't go Alpha Centauri

Pike needs you

She looks up to you

Hi guys!

So I just spent three hours getting a really, really ancient Linux port of Alpha Centauri working! Because, you know, that's what I do when I'm too lazy to spend two minutes hopping over to my Windows partition.

I think I may have just epitomized geekhood.

ALSO, after work today I checked my voicemail and I had a message from the human resources person at Kmart. She wants me to call her back tomorrow! Presumably it's to set up an interview. Which has me far more nervous about it than I probably should be. I guess I just have to keep calm, stick to my requirements of hours/wages (not gonna take it if it's sub-25 hours a week, I think), and continually remind myself that I have never NOT been hired after making it to the interview stage at a retail job.

This is exciting! As much as I'd LOVE to get out of retail, because the dealing-with-people thing is tough on me, I want to get out of this money hole first. If this job offers me ~30 hours a week and at least $9/hr (small potatoes, but this won't be commission, after all), that + gas/car wear & tear savings should be a moderate help.

Also I blew up half of a continent

Also global warming is flooding the world

Also I have to hurry and ascend to godhood with Planet before the water wipes out all my bases

And I have to beat Miriam to it; we're basically neck and neck

And we're locked in this brutal war without respite

AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW MY VISAGE CANNOT HANDLE IT

I don't know if I really have a "happiest time in my life" per se, but a lot of songs do remind me of particular moments or eras of my life. Sometimes the associations are due to lyrics or something, but most of the time it's just something I listened to a lot at that time. And sometimes, the connection seems to be completely random. There's a song they play at work occasionally called "Life Gave Me Lemonade" and every time I hear it, it reminds me of working at PetSmart, and it makes me a little homesick. I really haven't a clue why. As I said: random connection!

But yes, now I'm going to attempt to sleep because I know the sun is going to wake me up bright and early in the morning.

I think I am going to install SimCity 4 tomorrow! But we shall see. I need to force myself to not install it until I have worked on art for a little while.

I don't know because I have been gaming since before I can remember. I must have enjoyed it, because I've been gaming ever since.

I'm feeling good. I have a plan for motivating myself into saving money. I had a good sales day at work and I'm learning more and more about our products every day, so I'm feeling less and less helpless about selling things. I have (a little) more in my bank account than I thought I did. It's actually NOT RAINING. Dinner is in thirty minutes and looks insanely good. My boyfriend is amazing.

I'm going to write and then I'm going to play X-Com until I can't keep my eyes open anymore~

P.S. My face when one of my customers today lavished compliments upon my watch and then it turned into a ten minute long conversation about vintage timepieces:

pikestaff: (My Little Pike Pony)
Can I just finish it? I'm gonna finish it.

Day 24 - Favorite classic game.

...define "classic". Hmm. Let's say something from the mid-80s (or earlier). In which case, Dig-Dug.

Day 25 - A game you plan on playing.

I have several on the list. Let's go with SimCity 4~

Day 26 - Best voice acting.

The correct answer is Metal Gear Solid; YES I AM A FANGIRL AND I DON'T CARE.

"Snake? Snake?? SNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE!"

Day 27 - Most epic scene ever.

Cutscene, or just... general game moment?

...you know what, can I just go with Karazhan from WoW? That ENTIRE dungeon? Cause yeah.

Day 28 - Favorite game developer.

I know this is totally casual and whatnot but I may have to go with Blizzard. Seriously, if I added up all the hours I spent playing Blizzard games, I... I... if it's anything less than an entire year of my life I will be shocked.

This is liable to change at any moment, though, depending on what game I'm currently madly in love with. Right now I could be Firaxis' slave and be happy.

Day 29 - A game you thought you wouldn’t like, but ended up loving.

Pokemon Gold. I mean, I was excited about it, but also pretty nervous because they introduced a lot of new things that were different from the first and I was iffy on it. It wound up being my favorite in the series, though.

Day 30 - Your favorite game of all time.



Super Mario RPG.

It's really not the best game ever by any sort of standard, but it was the first that really grabbed and held my rapt attention all the way through not just for the gameplay, but also for the story, and as such it will always hold a special place in my heart for showing me what video games can truly do as an entertainment medium.

FIN~


The whole shebang )

Day 22 - A game sequel which disappointed you.

This is tough; I can think of a lot of sequels that I didn't quite like as much as the first game, but not any that REALLY disappointed me. I can't even in good conscience say Civ V because I haven't played it.

There have also been a lot of sequels that disappointed me right off the bat but that I warmed up to and fell in love with quickly. I'm not terribly picky or bitter about that sort of thing, in the long run.

I guess I didn't like DKC3 as much as the first two? (DKC2 is still my favorite of the three).


Day 23 - Game you think had the best graphics or art style.

Oh now that's just mean because those are two different things. >_>

I reeeeally liked the hand-drawn style of Yoshi's Island. (Have I mentioned lately that I love that game? Cause I do.)

Graphics-wise I don't even know where to start because poor ol' Pintsize (my computer) is beginning to show his age so I turn down all the settings on any newer games, and I haven't had much chance to mess with the newest console generation. Saying Starcraft 2 is sort of a cop out because its graphics weren't even that top tier, but it's the best I've played recently, so I may have to go with that. (>implying I don't have to turn the graphics settings ALL THE WAY DOWN when I play that game)

The whole shebang )

Day 21

Mar. 29th, 2011 11:31 pm
pikestaff: (Moogle Plushie)
Day 21 - Game with the best story.

I kind of really want to say either Final Fantasy 6 or Final Fantasy 7.

Both of which will make me a RAGING FANGIRL but I don't care~

The whole shebang )
