Rant 2.0 (Spoilers)

8.7.xxxx

It took some time but I followed the talkie orb thing to its owner, a woman prisoner that looks very much like Angel. Tina summoned Roland again and we freed Angel. Then she transformed into a giant spider queen and we were forced…

I climbed the Battlements outside of the Handsome Sorcerer's tower today Diary-bot. On the way up I somehow managed to slay "The Darkness". Not sure what that's all about. I also slapped the shit out of that bastard King Jeffery…

Well Diary-bot seeing as how the dwarves are trying to kill me on sight it seems only right that I defend myself and kill them first. Good thing too because Wiztrap asked me to "collect" some beards from some of the miners to…

Rant 2.0 (Spoilers)

8.7.xxxxIt took some time but I followed the talkie orb thing to its owner, a woman prisoner that looks very much like Angel. Tina summoned Roland again and we freed Angel. Then she transformed into a giant spider queen and we were forced to kill her. Roland once again being a HUGE help (sarcasm). You know, I'm no psychologist but I have a feeling that Tina blames Angel for Roland's death. The spider queen dead we exited the dungeon. Maybe I can finally shoot Handsome Sorcerer in the face now?…See More

I also slapped the shit out of that bastard King Jeffery after killing his guards Canine and Molehill. After that I reached the bridge leading out of Hatred's Shadow. I wasn't expecting Tina to just let me cross the bridge unmolested and she didn't disappoint. Handsome Sorcerer summoned the dragon Tina siced on us at…See More

Wiztrap had some more tasks for me and despite my dislike interfacing with a robot that is vastly inferior to Deathtrap my inner completionist would hate me if I didn't do EVERYTHING before leaving the mines. Yay OCD!He wanted me to charge his magic wand. This required me to blow up a golem and shock a spider which were both easy enough. The last part was a little more difficult. I had to shoot a orc in the face after stabbing it with the wand.…See More

Dwarven Genocide As Self-Defense (Spoilers)

7.23.xxxxWell Diary-bot seeing as how the dwarves are trying to kill me on sight it seems only right that I defend myself and kill them first. Good thing too because Wiztrap asked me to "collect" some beards from some of the miners to craft a beard that fits his greatness (his words). He suggested that I get them drunk first. Unfortunately the previously mentioned issue of the killing on sight thing makes that kind of hard to do in the normal ways. Good thing I had the ingenious idea to make a…See More

Diplomatic Negotiations (Spoilers)

7.19.xxxxBefore entering the Mines of Avarice I opened a loot chest and you know what Diary-bot? It nearly bit my face off! Damn thing came alive and I had to kill it before I got my loot. Scared the bejesus out of me. Anyways we entered the mines and Brick won the roll to talk to the Dwarven King (why do we have to roll for everything?). I have a feeling this is going to end poorly given how he "solved" Sir Reginald's riddle earlier. I quickly discovered how right I was when Brick decided to…See More

Rant Incoming! (Spoilers)

7.10.xxxxGoddamn it am I pissed Diary-bot! First the stupid Queen wasn't at the stupid Tree of Life. Big surprise there. Then it turns out Davlin was the stupid Handsome Sorcerer in disguise all along. Which is, you know, whatever. I wonder what Tina was planning on doing if Mister Torgue stayed as the gatekeeper? Ah forget it! I'm too mad to think straight right now! Anyways he used the bloodfruit to summon the ghost king. Up to this point I had no problem. A little cliche but I wasn't…See More

A White Knight Appears (Spoilers)

7.9.xxxxJust a quick update today Diary-bot.Davlin and I reached another dead end and Tina said we had to wait till Roland got here before we could continue. Thankfully the others convinced her to come up with a different way to keep the story going. Some ruins appeared and Tina said we had to track down the White Knight in order to continue. As it turns out Tina made Roland the White Knight so we ended up still needing him after all. I never met Roland myself but that doesn't diminish the…See More

Lions, Tigers And Treants, Oh My! (Spoilers)

7.7.xxxxI've been in some hostile environments before Diary-bot, like the girls locker room in high school, but when the very trees are trying to kill you it's hard to think of a place that's worse. The forest actually started off not looking too bad. Then Lilith had to say that the forest needed a more menacing name so Tina changed it and now the trees are trying to eat me! Thanks, Lilith. Normally I'm on your side but not this time. There's giant spiders too. I barely stand normal sized…See More

A Side Questing We Shall Go (Spoilers)

7.6.xxxxI figured that I should check on Mister Torgue before heading out to see how the stockades were treating him. Despite being locked up he was as loud and animated (or at least as much as you can be with your head and hands bound in place) as always and was ready to hand out side quests. But before doing so Lilith demanded that he prove he was geek enough to hang. Everyone else agreed, or in Mordecai's case didn't care, so it was decided that he would have to answer three questions to…See More

A Questing We Shall Go (Spoilers)

7.5.xxxxWalking around Flamerock Refuge it took no time at all to figure out what the main "plot quest" was going to be. The town's Queen had entered the nearby forest in hopes of restoring light to the world and no one had heard from her since. Obviously we are going to have to go track her down and restore the light to the world. The ominous tower of the Handsome Sorcerer (obvious Handsome Jack) that could be seen off in the distance is likely to be our final destination but for now we needed…See More

Bunkers & Badasses (Spoilers)

6.30.xxxxI nearly had a shootout in Sanctuary today Diary-bot! I was wandering around and as I was rounded a corner I bumped into a giant bandit! I was just about to summon Deathtrap and cut him into little bits when Maya walked up behind him and explained that he's a new Vault Hunter named Krieg. She met him at a train station a few days ago and apparently he saved her skinny butt. I'm still going to keep both my eyes and Deathtrap's sensors on him for a while though just to be safe.Other then…See More

I'm Making A Game (Update 1)

Earlier this week I finished up the last game screen mock up which brings me to the end of the concept art phase. For now anyways as I'm sure there will be more concept work to do later. My new goal is to get a very rough prototype up and running so I have something that can actually be interacted with. I expect this to take a while because I'm using programs I've never used before and I haven't programmed anything in yeeears. So it might be a while before I update my progress here again.…See More

I'm Making A Game

Actually that's been the plan for a while now I just failed to mention it here before. I did type up a development document, track down freeware programs to make it and finished the concept art work. Then I spent the last four months doing nothing. I recently came to the conclusion that my idea, while interesting, was waaaay too ambitious a project for me to undertake right now. I hope to revisit the idea sometime in the future but for now it's very much in storage.So why bring this all up now?…See More

Anticlimactic (Spoilers)

5.13.xxxxIt's over Diary-bot.I made it to Nakayama's ship, the H.S.S. Terminus, but not before Nakayama got his "secret" weapon Jackenstien ready for my arrival. It was really is just a messed up bullymong but just between you and me it was a little rough going. Between fending off loaders, waiting for Deathtrap to recharge and Jackenstien jumping on my head it took a few attempts to put the thing out of my misery.Then Nakayama showed up talking a big game. That was until he tripped, fell down…See More

Still Surrounded By Morons (Spoilers)

5.11.xxxxI'm pretty sure everyone is insane on this planet Diary-bot and I'm starting to think it's infecting me too.I managed to track down some of Nakayama's ECHO diaries and it's quite clear he has a serious man crush on Handsome Jack and not in a cute and endearing way either. More like a creepy stalker kind of way. I don't even want to know how he got samples of Jack's DNA. Thinking about it gives me the shivers. Ugh!Next crazy person on the list is Claptrap. He had me track down another…See More

Surrounded By Morons (Spoilers)

5.8.xxxHello Diary-bot!Hammerlock told me that I'd have to use someone as bait to lure Bulstoss out of its lair and suggested I weaken a nearby enemy to do so. He also said there was a sacrifice altar nearby that I could use to speed up this process. Being the inquisitive girl that I am I decided it was best to test out this altar first in order to see how it works before luring a bandit over to it. As it happens a roof of spikes falls onto the altar. The same altar that I was standing on. I…See More

Most Anticipated of 2014?

What`s up Axe Heads! I just joined the ranks & figured that since I have not met any of you yet I would say hi! So... Hello! Now that I got that out of the way I have wanted to join for quite some time however I have so little of it that I kept postponing or forgetting.

A response to yet ANOTHER racist rant against White Male Gamers.

So Polygon, paragon of gaming virtue that it's not, has put forth another article on how wrong it is to be a white male gamer.  By another white male gamer.

Gamer or QA tester? Early Access (long)

On the 16th of May 2007 the Halo 3 public Multiplayer Beta saw release for members of Microsoft's Xbox Live Subscription service. It contained 3 maps, a handful of game modes to play as well as a selection of the new weapons added in the sequel. Ostensibly the build was disseminated to test the matchmaking system, network loads and game balance but the use of an outdated iteration or 'Build', the heavy marketing and it's bundling with another…
