Dead Island Music Video

The last time I posted a video on YouTube with music, it had its audio track removed after a few days, so who knows how long this video will stay up and visible. And truthfully, it's not that good; you get a window into how I'm actually not all that good at video games. BUT, there's a moment (at time index 1:29) where the music syncs up perfectly with the mayhem. It's only a single moment, and probably not worth the build-up, but watch it anyways. Be a pal.

Sporcle Quiz - River City Ransom Shops

Hey guys, I posted a new quiz over on Sporcle. This one's about the classic NES game River City Ransom, asking you to name each of the shops in the game. Not super-exciting, but hey, I'm still getting my feet wet, still getting the hang of the mechanics. My next quiz will be epic...or at least a bit more fun.

Big MFin' Trees


Nothing fancy today, no witty comments or bizarre pictures. Just some tall ass trees from Terraria.

Nice Work, Dungeon Defenders


There aren't a ton of things that I unequivocally like. Jurassic Park is one of those things. So beating those fifteen levels of Dungeon Defenders was all worth it, just for this gimmick poster in my secret room.

March Madness - Jake and Amir

Jake and Amir is a web series that I've been watching pretty consistently for a couple years now. And while it's gone a little downhill, the one thing I can always come back to when I'm looking for a laugh is the March Madness episodes. So, with the madness upon us, enjoy:

Sporcle - Diablo Quiz

As a sports fan, I love trivia. Trying to remember the minutiae of decades of happenings, even if I'm not particularly good at it, is fun as hell.

Enter Sporcle. The site is basically a wiki-trivia page. Any user can create a quiz on any topic, and post it for others to play. It's fairly simple, but with a good number of options. I spend most of my time on the sports section, but there are quizzes on entertainment, geography, history, and yes, video games.

So anyways, I made a tiny little quiz. And I'll make more. Promise.

Puzzle Agent 2...EPIC


Honestly, this picture only tells you about 4% of the epicness of Puzzle Agent 2.

Actually, if we're being truthful here, the puzzles in this game aren't as good as in the original. And the story is a little more hokey. But it's a fun time-killer, and has low system requirements, so it runs on my work machine. And that's clutch.

Space Time Caps Tickets


Do you see the issue with the ad in the middle of the screen? I'll give you a clue: it's not that the ticket prices are outrageous (though I believe they are).

Need another clue?

Look at the bottom right. They're advertising tickets for a game gone by. They did win the game 4-3, though, so if you could travel back in time to go to the game, at least it's a win.

Top 500 Songs - Dave Matthews Band

This was always going to be the hardest of my band lists, because I like so many of DMB's songs, and have liked them so differently over...
