The final hours of the Steam Summer Sale are upon us. Thank all that is holy. It is so hard to keep myself from just blowing every last dollar I have on the marked down games. This year felt a lot less varied in terms of titles available, but god damn it is still so…so much. I bought so much this year, one of the games I actually already beat. I expect a Runner 2 review to be up tomorrow or Tuesday. It involves a lot of moving to the right. I have one last game I plan on picking up at the final hour, but I need to get paid first tomorrow morning; shore up my bank account. If that is able to happen as planned, I will be playing a ton of Prison Architect. Cutest shower shankings ever it seems. This is assuming I don’t die before tomorrow. Some guy came into my job today and paid for gas with a bunch of money covered in white powder. I am going to assume this was cocaine, and hoping it was not Ricin or some shit. He was wearing no shirt and had ripped up hands, he had quite the junkie look going on. So yeah, hoping cocaine.
Also tomorrow I plan on getting Shin Megami Tensei IV. Then digitally getting Animal Crossing: New Leaf with the 30 bucks E-Shop credit I will get. I may also get a bigger SD card for my 3DS as it seems 2 gigs will not last long if I get down the digital hole with the device. 32 gigs should be better, and hey, the card will be…less than thirty dollars? This makes me want to smack the person at Sony who had final say in the Vita using those bullshit memory cards. I am not paying 100 fucking dollars for a 32 gig card. That is robbery. I love my Vita, but Sony has this odd hard-on for proprietary memory and it needs to stop. The wi-fi on the device is so fast, and it has such a good interface, I want to get down on the digital revolution with my handhelds. Nintendo is making that pretty easy. Sony is not. Sony- Fucking fix that. Fuck.
So one last thing. I was looking at my Steam library, especially the games I have not beaten/never played yet and realized I need to get on the ball. I have had the program FRAPS now for a while, and have had a desire to make video content. Maybe not entire long-plays of games, but shorter videos, that take a look at a game, not even a review. Sort of play it in a vacuum. Actually let’s not beat around the bush, I would probably just be ripping off Giant Bomb with their Quick Looks and their Encyclopedia Bombasticas. Right now I would be confined to computer stuff, as I need to grab a capture box for consoles, and need to figure out the ways people record handheld content. I would have gotten around to it long ago, but I am a lazy asshole. This is something new, and will probably require a ton of legwork on my part, as I have no AV experience. But it seems programs and such are working hard as hell today to ease the process so we will see what I can swing.
I have been feeling good about writing lately, and really want to ride this wave. I need to take advantage of this upswing in enthusiasm and build on it. I know I am not the best writer on the planet, but for those of you that actually read my stuff, let alone like it, thank you. It is not a huge amount of people, but I am terrible at whoring myself out. But everyone that does read this stuff, thank you so much, I really do appreciate each and every one of you. I know in today’s internet-centered age, writers like me are a dime a dozen, and to be honest I have no idea what I am doing with this. So flying by the seat of my pants. In the interest of this not getting too personal, I am going to tie it off now.
