Tonight I Played online w @WhiteboySlim and his friends. I was the lowest level and gained 5 levels in an hour and some change. Finally maxed out my money to the point that a death costs 4 million.

Since we had four players the bad guys were really hard. One bullet practically killed me so I took i got a few shots off, mostly behind cover.

Very fun.


Taking a break from programming to play Borderlands. First time I am playing since I beat it and it asked me which play through to load.

Awesome it lets you jump between them. Starting out play through 2.

This game was a staple my LAN parties till multiplayer stopped working in Windows 7. So many civilizations and so many ways to play this game made us always come back for more.

I remember a few games where we focused on strip mining the map, where we essentially harvested everything for fun. Sometimes we would "box in" the computers by buildings walls around them to completely encase them and then do whatever to harass them.

Keep hoping GoG can rerelease it with a modern build that fixes muiltiplayer.


So in my second play through I'm changing up my play strategy a bit. Putting the sunflowers ahead of my peashooters as a natural defense in the beginning.

So in the first back 2 rows pea shooters, 2 two rows next sunflowers. Then(because it's still early game) mines and walnuts. I just unlocked the flytrap which is always fun :)

PvZ 2? Yes please.


I downloaded the free version from iTunes because I saw it in the top 10 free section on the App Store. I saw Disney as the creator and almost didn't buy it because, lately, I don't really identify with Disney games or movies.

First off the game feels like a Disney cartoon. They really bring a strong Animation effort to the table on this game in the direction of Swampy the Aligator main character. The gist of the game is that Swampy likes to take baths and you need to allow the water to fill his tub. Totally down with the premise and its actually fun to help him out!

Just beat the main "meet swampy" intro thingy and I was impressed that the puzzles were so varied. When Swampy was able to take a bath I found myself happy he was so happy.

Somehow, the animation and art REALLY remind me of "The Rescuers" the ol' Disney cartoon I loved as a wee pup.

Recently I beat Borderlands. What an amazing game! What a really anti-climactic ending. Haven't torn into the DLC on the PS3 yet, but I will soon.

Played through as the Siren. Focused on phasewalk damage and early on the game found a very over powered shotgun. I think I prefer playing the game with pistols or maybe I was just lucky and found a lot that dont have a lot of bullets but hit very very hard.

I got this game as part of The Humble Bundle 4. In fact, I got the bundle just for Cave Story and Gratuitous Space Battles. If you loved old NES or SNES side scrollers you need to check out Cave Story. Playing through it with a USB SNES style controller is the way to go.

I technically have Cave Story+ but turned the settings to only show me the old graphics, those seem better to my eye.

I haven't beat it yet, just put a few hours into it here and there. So far, really really fun.
