I think I am going to make a list of all the games I have sitting around I have not touched. Try to play them all sober. Ha. Also my year long pass for WoW is nearly up. As much as I do actually love Mists of Pandaria, I am thinking it is really time to hang it up. Once any character hits 90, they gear a bit, but it is for no reason. I don’t raid, I do not PvP, but I do sit there and play a game that prevents me from experiencing other, sometimes great, and sometimes shit titles. I am sick of that to a large degree. Let’s see how long this quitting lasts.
Okay. So two weeks ago, the northeastern United States suffered from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy. I happen to live in the northeastern United States, specifically Long Island, New York, which was pounded by this storm. People lost their homes, whole towns on the water lie in ruins. Luckily enough for me, I live enough in the middle of the island that the insane flooding was never a concern. We knew we were going to lose the power, the question was for how long. Last year, when Irene hit our coast, my house lost power for an entire week. That is nuts considering the damage, while bad, was not severe. This time though, the damage was severe, and I had no power for 11 days this go-around. In that time, the temperature started to drop, fast. High winds and no sun will certainly do that, granted, but this was also the end of October/start of November. Shit would get cold all on its own, didn’t need the help of a hurricane. In that time, I got sick. Heavy coughing, generally crappy feeling, the usual. However, I seem to be susceptible to a secondary effect of being sick like this. My vocal chords blow the fuck out from all the coughing and I lose the ability to speak for 3-4 days.
Now let’s talk about my job. Not this. This is a hobby that I would love to turn into a job. At my job, I am on a phone all day. All god damn day. That is my job. I work in car insurance, helping people who were in accidents. I currently have no voice. I have already been out of work due to being sick, and now apparently I have to be out longer because I am not able to work due to my voice being the sole way I communicate with people. So really, what do I have to do with my time being sick? Play video games! I guess then I should go over what I was playing, some new stuff, some old. One I even just wrote a review for, go read it.

Remember Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete on the PS1? Wasn’t it awesome? Yeah it was. Remember Lunar: Silver Star Story for the Sega CD? That game wasn’t as great, but still light-hearted and fantastic. Remember that Lunar remake on the GBA? That wasn’t so great. Are we done with versions of Lunar now? Are you sure there are no more remakes of this damn game? You absolutely certain? There may be a fan-remake for Texas Instruments scientific calculators, but I have honestly never checked. Ah! PSP, damn you! Sneaking out another version of this game, you should be ashamed of yourself, especially after that poor showing on the GB…wait, this version, it’s good? Fuck. Guess it’s time to play Lunar, AGAIN.
Then again, there are far worse games I could be playing. Like Final Fantasy 13, or Superman 64.
Or WoW. Hell, at least this isn’t WoW. Continue Reading
