Life of a Blog

Artist-Cory Alexander Tilton When I started this blog, it was focused on gaming. It’s my first one, and I’m slowly learning the inner workings of it. The more time I spend parading around other people’s blogs and tweeting away, I’ve realized a blog doesn’t have to stay constant. It should be changing and evolving, because […]

Dwarf’s are amazing at building and fixing, they’re […]

The Angry Gamer

After a long day of work, I would love to come home to a quiet household…well, that’s not happening.  My husband is playing the new Marvel vs Capcom for PS3 and screaming at players that can’t hear him (dog ate the headset).  It’s always the same, either the game is cheating or kids are cheating.

February AW Blog Chain.

(Lucino) I’m really beginning to like these chain things, which is odd because I delete every chain e-mail… This month’s chain is 1) describe your antagonist and 2) write a scene about meeting them : ) in 100 words. Lucino is a young, reptilian lord, who is obsessed with pretty girls (he has a private collection […]

After a lot of inner dialogue, I realized girl gamers unite is a tad cheesy…So, I think Girls PWN is a better term for my true feelings, about girls and gaming (and in general, yea, we rule). For those of you who don’t know what that means, watch Mr. Bas Rutten teach a lesson in […]
