Aside 14 Jul

Yesterday da boyfriend and I headed to Columbia for his eye exam (boy needed glasses) then decided to waste the day away there.  I ended up with all dis:

ImageBasically, my interests are all over the place.  There is a new store at the mall called alter’d state, and they have a lot of cute stuff, but none of it looked right on me.  Apparently wide hips and peplum are a bad combo.  There was an owl necklace that also caught my attention, but I didn’t want to drop $100+ on it after paying for an eye exam (happy birthday, baby, have these doctors prod your eyes!).  Columbia also has a cute little downtown place where I bought some vintage boots from the 60’s and that pyrite in a square necklace.

 The boots need  a little work done with them, mainly the laces replaced and some leather cleaned up.  After downtown shopping I checked out games store called Valhalla’s Gate.  Lots of awesome board games and miniature games there.  I’ve always wanted to paint some miniatures so I bought a kit and painted my first one last night.  He turned out okay, I guess, but I have a lot to learn.  Definitely going to practice on the cheaper high elves that came with my kit before going on to my beautiful pewter minis.

Favorite Gaming Moments of 2010

14 Jan

2010 was a great year for me when it came to gaming.  I finally landed a job to pay for a habit that requires money, and what wasn’t spent on photography equipment and food was spent on games.

Through the rest of this entry I’ll share with you my top moments of the few games I had the chance to complete in 2010.  Be warned, there are spoilers in this post.

Mordin gives Medical Advice (Mass Effect 2) – Garrus was my absolute favorite character in the original Mass Effect, so when I discovered he was romanceable in its sequel, I was thrilled.  Garrus and I were going about our usual business, and between him calibrating the Normandy’s weapons, we made progress with one another.  That’s when Mordin shared this gem.

Stress Test (Heavy Rain) – I’ve always been one to immerse myself in games, but when I got behind the wheel for the first trial in Heavy Rain, I was astounded.  Never has a portion of a video game been so stressful.

The Game (Fable III) – This was easily the most humorous quest I played all year.  While I’ve never been much of a table top RPG gamer, I’ve been around plenty to realize how real this actually is.  People arguing about quest rewards, enemies, and weapon drops are all things I’ve witnessed while watching others playing D&D.

The Shattering (World of Warcraft) – World of Warcraft was beginning to show its age in the original portions of Azeroth.  Of course, like all good things it must come to an end by an angry dragon that seeks revenge.  The desert of Thousand Needles is not a giant lake with islands made of what were once plateaus.  Blizzard made a good move when they entirely reconstructed their original WoW world.

Lone Wolf (Halo Reach) – During the first mission in Halo Reach, Carter sternly tells Noble Six that the Lone Wolf crap stays behind, they work as a team.  Unfortunately Six becomes the last spartan of the Noble Team we even partially know the whereabouts of.  On a game that focused entirely on team, you’re left alone to fight a heap of never ending Elites.

What are your favorite moments of 2010.  Also, credit goes to Kotaku for the idea of this post.

I Feel Like an A-Hole

For not posting in this more.  I’m really sorry single reader that I have.

I bought a PS3 over the past weekend, and though I hate to say it, it’s gotten more time this week than my Xbox 360 has.  Heavy Rain is such a beautiful and unique game!

Mass Effect

25 Jul

Since the first game came out, I’ve been completely addicted.  Since the original, I’ve gotten a PC capable of playing the game… of course now I’m having a hard time finding ME1 for PC.  I own both games of X360, and since yesterday ME2 for PC… but I’d like to have the first too!

And for fun, here’s some pics of my fem!shep.

Expect many more to come!  Especially once I get my little (big?) Garrus back!
