It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted, but my life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately, with dance, work, and getting ready for our European vacation (yes, it’s okay to be jealous). We have been in Belgium for a week now, and are finally getting back into the swing of things. One thing that HASN’T changed, however, is the gaming. With all this new found downtime, it has been fantastic catching up on some games!

please don’t judge the pyjamas or the posture. It is vacation, after all.

In Europe, Still Gaming – Part 1

10 Jun

So we’re in Europe on vacation, visiting Ceratopz parents in Belgium – and of course, we’re hitting as much of this place as we can while we’re here. So far, it’s been awesome

– for example, Brussels:

chillin in Brussels, having a beer in the grande place

But between our little day or two excursions to awesome European towns, we are having a bit of down time at her parents house. So, what did we bring with us?

It’s been a little while since we posted here, and I’m blaming it on (FINALLY) getting some half decent weather around here and the fact that it has been a long weekend. Happy birthday Queen Victoria!

I googled queen and nerd and Felicia Day came up, so she’s going in.

I love me some “freebies”

17 May

I’m such a sucker for discounts and free things. When a thing I’ve never heard of or wanted goes on sale for 50% off or more (!!!!!!!) I have to fight the urge to buy it. Lately, my biggest struggle has been with free bonuses for buying things. I feel so lucky getting something that just can’t be bought in stores, or getting more for less. Just a couple days ago I almost ordered Prototype 2 because it was A) 20.00 off and B) came with a free steelbook and figurine of the main dude. I didn’t want it before, but I sure do want it now!

free things that I do not need! I need them!

Why I play a game series backwards

16 May

I was a PC gamer for a long time, and didn’t get any consoles after SNES until we got our PS3. So basically, I’m late to the party, and I got a lot of catching up to do. But I don’t do things in order…

I got God of War 3, finished that, then got the earlier games.

Played Uncharted 2 (before 3 came out), finished that, so then went and got the first.

I got a platinum trophy in Skyrim (yeah I’m bragging), and I have Oblivion waiting on the shelf.

And now I’m playing Assassins Creed 2, because I recently played AC2: Revelations.

And yeah, I’ll probably play the first one last.

What I have learned from Dragon Ball Z

14 May

Since my last semester of school ended, I have been greedily watching season after season of TV shows that have slipped through my grasp over the last few years. Lately, my indulgence has been Dragon Ball Z Kai. For those of you unaware, Kai is a condensed version off all the events that happened in Dragon Ball Z: less fluff, and much more kamehameha-ing. I watched most of the original growing up, but never saw the series start to fnish. Naturally, being a graduate student is the perfect time to fix that!

Draaagon Sooooouuuul!
