A Poem of Self-Reflection

You are beautiful.
You are ugly.
But what are you?
You are both nothing and everything. How?
How can you be and not be?
Isn't it beautiful?
Isn't it hideous?
Isn't it grotesque?

You are darkness.
You are that which the light dares not enter.
For you are all light.
You are no light.
You exist in the void of space.
You exist in the center of black holes.
You exist in simple paint.
You exist in the shades of trees....

The Gamer's Litter Box: Gaming the Sandbox

Hey all. Long time no blog.

So why not?

Sandboxes--and all iterations of it, be it game editors or Halo's Forge system--are simply awesome. They're a broad world where anything can happen. Minecraft, with its simplicity and minimalism, made this work to great effect. Who doesn't want to build their own death star out of dirt and stone, or Forerunner metal, or steampunk steel, or Dovahkin magic, or whatever? It's fun for the sake of...

A Few Things I've Learned From Games/Cartoons

1. Pokemon taught me to SAVE. You never know how invaluable it is until your Word rage-quits on you halfway through your essay. Apparently finishing a paper is akin to catching a Groudon.

2. Kaiba from Yugioh taught me about 51%, the majority vote (shame; they could have probably gone on about the supermajority).

3. Countless vocabulary words. Haters will hate on everything from Dungeons and Dragons to Diablo 3, but you've got to admit...

I believe I am a god and the world is mine
A mere pawn in the great scheme
For the sun is but a secondary center.
I can see all of your sins, your flaws
Your greatness and potential
the scars and wounds, innate power within.
And I can sense the tidal waves, moving earth and dust
As clouds curl and unfurl in the messy sky
And the molten continues to cool.
The clatter of a rifle, the stench of a cake
A car zooms just past, a doppler...

Diablo III: Observance [spoilers]

'Ello, folks! I'm still kicking, and I'm here to give my critique of Diablo III!

Now, it might be a good idea to note that I haven't actually played the game... at all. But I have followed the hype and seen a number of videos playing through the entirety of normal difficulty, at the very least. And having played Diablo II to the extent of just stopping before Diablo himself (using an unlatched necromancer with a crazy build that rightfully...

DragonFable: Regression

Hello there.

Yes, I'm still alive. Just because I'm not spamming this place with SC2 blogs doesn't mean I'm dead. Although, to be honest I haven't been playing a lot of SC2 recently. (Damn you, TB, upload the next episode of Terraria!)

Instead, I turned back into my past, and looked at the many games that I've played (I do that from time to time). Neopets, Age of Empires, Tetris... oh, hey look, DragonFable. Haven't seen that name in a...

Still Playing Games

Here's another lackluster installment of my blog about Starcraft II!

Well, I presume it's lackluster because no one seems to like/read this anyway.


Anyway, due to some control snooping and accidental deletions, I made my installed SCII fubar, so I had to reinstall it. That sucked.

When I got it back online, I decided to play (big surprise). It'd been a while since I played, and the lack of coordination...

Starcraft II: ViDoc

If you're here to watch videos of my humiliation, well, I'll have to disappoint you on that note. However, if I ever get to it in the future, perhaps you can get a peek of it.

Maplestory: The Good Ol' Days

Ah, yes. We all remember it like it was yesterday. Before Chaos. Before Big Bang. Before Masteria and New Leaf City. Before fourth job. Before even third job.

Back in those days. The days of Henesys Hunting Grounds I, Pig Park (and iron hog slaughtering), Somebody Else's House. When there were little else than Zakum, Papulatus, and Crimson Balrog as our primary threats.

People of today are so naive and arrogant to these memories. They...

Starcraft II: Fallout

The torment continues...

That's... Better?

Here, I'm playing 1v1 against a Zerg player on Shattered Temple. I think he was a platinum rank, but whatever the case, let's just say that he was better than me.

So I go on with a 1-1-1 to mass marines build. The banshees didn't do much because they got shot out of the sky by poor microing and two and a half spore crawlers. Good overlord spread is key to preventing banshee harassment,...

Starcraft II: Frenetic

Hello dwellers of the Vu!

Let us commence with the blogging.

Smarter, Bigger, Faster, Dead

When you're Terran, and your ally is an inexperienced Terran, and your opponents are Zerg and Terran, and you're on Discord IV, AND the Terran foe leaves, for the love of your monitor LEAVE THE GAME. It will not be pretty.

Why? Well, for starters that essentially means two free gases for the Zerg buddy. And when Zerg gets gas, that can...

The Maplestory Inversion

For those still out there who still exist on the plane of two dimensions, tacky NX clothing and numbing amounts of 2x+ experience, here's a blog for you.

Even as I have sought to run away, limbs flailing, as far as I could from this godforsaken game, there is some allure to it that I cannot escape. Is it the childlike graphics? The great memories that it retains? The fact that that game was the reason for the diabolical spawn we called...

Starcraft II: Incendiary

So, at the time of this blog I just lost a few games, so I'm a bit edgy. I apologize if I act irrationally (unless it is within my capabilities to be irrational, in which case I have right to be unapologetic).


I'm not pretty keen on facing non-Terran races, because I'm cautious of what I can and can't do against them, since I have had little practice against them. Plus, mutalisks can really tick me off when they're used...

Starcraft II: Saturation

Hello, my fellow VuTalians (or VuTalites, VuTalities, VuTaleans, VuTalers, or whatever name you go by). This blog will be dedicated more to critique than actual brouhaha, for anyone who actually reads these.

Outnumbered, Again

In this game, it was I, again, on Discord IV, fighting a lopsided 2v2 with myself and a proxy Terran against two Terran players. I can't say I blame the guy for quitting; I was lagging everyone out at the...

Starcraft II: Continue the Insanity

By now, you're probably all sick of my SC2 blogs, since half of the front-page blogs are them. However, none of you have yet expressed dire outrage at my posts, so I shall take the freedom of continuing.

Sacrifice Everything

Look, I'm not much of a hotkey-oriented person. That essentially translates to "I will get totally boned by pro players." For that reason, I was very hesitant to vie for the "Sacrifice Nothing" achievement for...

Is it ironic that the most activity to come was from presuming a bot was an actual person?
