Oka, okay, okay, okay. I know I’ve been slacking on updating my shit, but I have perfectly good reasons…Well, they’re good in MY eyes, fuck you.
The MAIN reason that’s preoccupying my time is a little social network called VampireFreaks. Well, really, it’s a subculture site, I think I’ll get curb stomped by saying “social network” and lumping it with FaceBook, MySpace, Twitter, blahdeblahdeblah. In any case, I decided to make an account - lost my last one ages ago - and decided to just bum around. Looking at their chat app, I noticed there was a Gamers room. Naturally, I went in, and holy fuck.
It’s a room FULL of people like me. Not just gamers, but smart-mouthed, socially-competent but idiot-rejecting gamers. It’s like my vision of a true social gathering. The first three people I met - Sarai, Tawnie, and Chelsea - were pretty hostile to me in the beginning, but after some musical mutuality and some decent gamer talk, they saw I wasn’t one of the typical VF trolls. Now, I have a nice, small group of close friends, which include the three, but also Shadow, Sage, DJ, about three Matts, Kai, CC, Dirt, the list goes on. LUV YU FGGTZ! <333333
Another thing that’s been keeping me away? Diablo II. After a run-in with Dungeon Siege - Thank you, Tawnie, by the way - it got me wanting to play my favorite game for 6 years, since DS is a LOT like Diablo. Same medieval feel, same sort of inventory setup, same blocks of needless grinding, but I’m a lot more familiar with D2’s 2-D ¾-view aesthetic. I’m back on the USWest realm, having sold and still selling a lot of my East gear on a Diablo Forum for their form of currency, so I can buy West items. Hit me up if you still play. USWest Realm: *the_wicked
On a personal front, being unemployed sucks dick, but at least I have lots of free time for the former two subjects. At least I’m getting some unemployment cash. It’s not a lot to go out to Hayward anytime soon, so I may not be able to visit before I head back to work, but I’ll try, you guys. Also, I’m still debating my WoW trial. All depends if I can pull myself from VF long enough to install it.
Until next time (hopefully not as long as this time)
