I haven’t made a blog post in… three whole days! So this one will be big and cover EVERY THING EVER (that is related to me, in the past 3 days, and important as well)
First, The “Kongregate Dare” (aka GiTD20). For the 20th Kongregate Game in Ten Days competition, it was decided that we would only get THREE days to work on an entry. Much like the 48-hour Ludum Dare game development competition, this has been termed the “Kong Dare”. There have already been some great entries. I don’t think I’ll enter unless I can pick up some epic motivation tomorrow, but it will be great nonetheless. And for GITD30, I shall be there! Check out the official thread here.
Secondly, I’ve been working on a much bigger freelancer project (it’s not huge, but it’s several times bigger than my previous one, which was tiny). I’ll ask if I can share details when it’s done. If so, you’ll hear about it soon. (I hopefully just turned in the final revision, though I may need to do one more)
Third: Lancer is going on vacation for the next half of a week. Who will I spam anime links to? Who will I get to test all of my crazy programs? Who will feed me when I’m hu… wait, that’s not Lancer. WHO WILL CONSTANTLY ANNOY ME WITH TALK OF WEBCOMICS AND “RED VS BLUE” AND CHEEZY AMERICAN SHOWS!?!?? HOW WILL I LIVE… I think I can make it 😛
Fourth: A friend of mine broke his external hard drive today. The same thing happened to mine not long ago. His, he dropped a few feet onto the carpet, mine just fell over when I bumped it. These things need to be a lot more solid. Seriously. My drive feels like I could snap it in half with one hand. I think they make them easily break on purpose, because there’s no other reason to have such a flimsy and loose casing on a $100+ piece of hardware. And what about data recovery? They should at least cover that in the warranty. “Oh, yay, I get my $100 drive replaced for free, but I have to spend $1400 to get my data back!”
Fifth: Remember that anime I blogged about, Gintama? If not, look back just a few posts. Well, it’s gotten even MORE awesome. I know I say this every episode, but it really has. Exponentially even. The only thing I can imagine that would be more epic than this last episode is the next episode (Which I will watch in two days). This one had some particularly awesome plot twists and character development. As well as dialogue… Oh yes… the dialoge…
[I had a little piece of epic dialogue here, but plain text just didn’t do it justice]
