  1. I started playing KOTOR last night. I kept running around trying to dodge enemy fire only to realize my guy wouldn't shoot his damn blaster.. after about 4 enemy encounters I realized I was doing combat completely wrong. -_-

      How good is it?

      I'm not that far into it, but its definitely enjoyable. Its like an interactive novel. It took me a while to get through the initial character creation and reading the tutorials. I'm used to action games and this game requires more patience. I only played Dungeons and Dragons a handful of times so it took me a little while to understand the in game explanations for stats and how attacks/dodges and everything else is calculated.

  2. Just finished the alternate ending in Saints Row the Third.. and I got some Steam trading cards. I got a spiffy Gat one and two Nyte Blaydes. I don't think these cards are actually worth anything tho.

      you use them to craft badges to "level" up your steam account

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I saw something about that.. Like it unlocks emoticons and stuff for on their forums.. but does it give you extra stuff like discount coupons?

    3. Eppy

      Eppy

      its possible

  3. I am loving this Xbox 360 wireless controller I got for my laptop. Its like playing on a console now. Games on steam have never been better. I played A.R.E.S for 5 hours today. Mega man style fun. :D

    1. Sledgstone

      I had to get the controller that came with the USB transceiver. Its actually a regular wireless xbox 360 controller, but the usb adapter it comes with is what makes it work for pc. They sell the adapters separately too for ppl that already have the controllers.

      I really like the trigger buttons. The shoulder and trigger buttons are much smaller in profile compared to the PS3's and it just makes more sense. However, the controller is bigger than the ps3, which is ok for me, but for ladys's smaller hands she prefers the ps3 controller. The PS4 controller will be the best of both worlds. :D

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      We went for a wireless controller so if we wanted to game on the big tv, we can have a laptop sitting near the tv hooked up with HDMI, set steam for big picture mode and sit back on the couch and enjoy the surround sound. It basically makes my laptop act like a console. ;)

  4. Copy and pasting lately has been pissing me the hell off.. I thought my keyboard was messing up. Turns out it was a firefox bug. If you go to mozilla's site and install the latest firefox beta, it fixes the issue.

    1. Eppy

      Eppy

      or you could just use chrome :P

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Yes I could, but I like firefox because of fireftp and firebug. :P

  5. Last of Us is amazing. I'm really liking the shotgun and hunter's rifle now. I suck with the Bow and Arrow.. x_x

  6. I mowed so much grass today.. Only 1/3 of what Lady usually does.. f*ck I'm feel exhausted. x_x

    1. Eppy

      old lazy bitch *cracks the whip* MUSH MULE MUSH!

      I had a migraine today.. I experienced literal blind spots in my vision today. I have never had that happen before.. scary shit not seeing parts of vehicles directly in front of me on the freeway. x_o

  7. I've been playing Saints Row the Third.. at 61% completion. Looks like I will finally beat it tomorrow. ^_^

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I finally beat Saints Row the Third. Excellent game. I still have to get the alternate ending tho.

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      continuing your game should you should be able to pick that mission again and it will only give you the choice that you didn't pick the previous time... I was disappointed with the final missions considering how bad ass the opening mission was with the falling from the jumbo jet. The game was a blast though. I picked Burt Reynolds.. how can you not pick that? XD

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That opening mission was awesome. The final mission was more about being rushed by everyone, it could have been better with some more crazy scenes.. although I was able to take advantage of my homies. I called someone at each of the three locations I had to clear. SWAT, Burt Reynolds Me and Nyte Blade were kicking some ass. XD

  8. Lady beat "Last of Us" and now shes moved onto "Tomb Raider" she is kicking ass.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      She'll be beating PS4 games before you even get one at this rate. XD

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lmao. If theres a game on PS4 that she wants I wouldn't mind watching her play it. XD

  9. I watch too much tv.. I need to take a break from shows and catch up with my online interests.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I've been sucked into netflix anime and SWTOR X'D

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Between work, tv and playing with Chu, my time disappears so damn quick. Lady is already farther ahead of me in Last of Us even.. I'm seeing so many spoilers. ;_;

  10. I will not play Last of Us while drinking alcohol again.. I am not stealthy in this game when I have a buzz.. >_<

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I am not good drinking and gaming.. I played some BF3 a bit drunk and had my k/d go horribly negative.. however, I did beat CoD: Black ops 2 with a buzz.. in fact I beat the last two strike force missions on my first try with no problems, wtf. I guess AI is easy with a buzz, but humans kicked my ass. XD

    2. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I remember the night i discovered it. I was pretty drunk, and I popped MW2 in and played sub base with the P90 and went 35-2, with as bad as COD games have been not counting BO2, I've had to be drunk to tolerate them XD!!!

  11. I made some of the best ribs I've ever eaten tonight. My smoker is now amazing. :D

    1. Sabe

      Sabe

      YAY! Glad to hear your modifications are doing the job! Hope you're feeling better!

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thanks! ^_^ I'm feeling a bit better too, except in the mornings.. damn sinuses. :\

  12. I went to the dr yesterday.. I'm at the beginning of a sinus infection. I don't feel bad this morning, but last night I passed out on the couch. x_x

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      It was probably aged in a barrel that once had jack in it. All Scotch/Irish/Canadian whiskeys are aged in previously used American bourbon barrels. US bourbon can only use brand new barrels to classify as bourbon. But yes Jameson is excellent. Its the scotch taste for the bourbon price. I love its mellow tones.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I learned something new. ^_^ Yes, the flavor was quite nice. ^_^

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I learned that from Modern Marvels. They have an episode on whiskey :P It's a very good ep, not to be confused with the one about distilling.

  13. Watching Sword Art Online. 5 Episodes in, so far its really good.

    1. Eppy

      Eppy

      Damn right it is :) I got them through the SAO arc so all the have left is the 2nd half with AFO

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Its a good anime. I really liked the SAO arc. *nod*

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Out of the two I honestly enjoyed the SAO arc more. AFO kinda fell flat since there was no more beat the game or die mentality to it (still good though).

  14. I need more sleep. Work is so annoying. At least tomorrow is friday.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Haha. Yeah, that ends up being the case for me sometimes.. but staying up late for me now is 11:30pm. lmao. *feels like an old man* XD

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Pfft, try sleeping during the day like I do. I'm lucky to get 5 hours of sleep between the neighborhood children screaming (school really should be all year round) and the sunlight (curse you sunlight, I will find a way to do away with you). Plus at least it's Friday for you, it's my Tuesday :(

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Good luck with that. I don't think I could do third shift. Your sleep schedule sounds like my brothers. He works from 9pm to 6am and sleeps during the day and his weekends start sunday night. And I agree about school. It should be year round. *nod*

  15. I got my new Smoker assembled tonight. After a good cleaning, it'll be ready for its first bbq this saturday. Pulled pork and chicken.. Mmmmm. I plan on doing a large blog update this weekend. :D

    1. Sabe

      Sabe

      I do a bit of smoking during the summer... and had the same problem last year. The best solution I found was to add a separate coal pan under my water pan, that way it was using it's own heat source, and keeping the water at a more stable temp. Still had to add more water every hour, though...:(

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Thanks for the suggestion. I made some modifications to my smoker last weekend, but I haven't had a chance to try using it again. I added a new thermometer, a damper to the bottom to allow me to control airflow, and 3 bolts to the charcoal pan to place a grate on so the ash doesn't choke out the air flow.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I was also using royal oak lump charcoal.. turns out the lump charcoal was burning very hot and fast, especially since I couldn't restrict air flow. Also, the lump really added a strong smoke flavor. Way too much. So I'll be trying out kingsford blue briquettes next time. Next time I use the smoker, I'll take pictures to upload so you can see what it looks like.

  16. I hate UPS. I ordered a new smoker off of Amazon.. where did my package get delivered to? My neighbors porch.. and the box looks like it was kicked, opened and retaped closed. The grill is fine tho, but I bitched at UPS.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      The only thing I can think of is my Grandmother didn't hear the knock at the door when he delivered it so he decided to leave it with our neighbors instead of leaving it by the door like he usually does (must of been a new postal driver). He better not fuck up with the next one because I will be royally pissed if my rightstuf order isn't here when it's supposed to be.

      Sadly you can't be nice with them anymore, they take it as a sign that you'll let them do whate...

    2. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      ...ver they want with your package. Thankfully I haven't run into that problem with our UPS driver yet or I'd be raising holy hell as well.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Yep, they force people to be asses to them, because if we're not, nothing gets fixed. The last time I called and b*tched at UPS was a year ago when they left the 26 inch HDTV I ordered on my neighbors back porch. That tv was shipped in its original package. Aside from the mailing address on it, my neighbor would have thought the TV fairy came and dropped off a present for them. -_- After that, they found my house again for the next 6 months.

  17. Almost done with Tomb Raider. I wanted to finish it before I moved onto another game. So much fun. :D

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I loved it. I think its one of the best single player games I've played in years. GW2 looks like it has good potential.. but the controls are drastically different from GW1. I got into a demo during a free weekend, impressive looking game, but I think it'd probably play better with a controller considering the amount of moving and dodging involved.

    2. Dubird

      Dubird

      My FFXI guild pretty much all moved to GW2, and I really want to play with them again. ^_^; One of them said that the PC controls are not that hard to get the hang of if you're used to playing on PC, so that's a good sign. Just need to find the money for it. ><

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Ah. Thats cool then. I miss the click to move options of Guild Wars 1. :\

  18. So busy this weekend. I don't think I accomplished much, but it was all time consuming. The garden looks great and we have a new fire pit! :D

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Once you start playing your new star wars games, you wont accomplish anything! XD

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Lol. My new games along with overtime at work.. I'll be busy again. ^_^;

  19. I might buy the KOTOR games. $3 a piece on steam this weekend.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      The Jedi Knight games are amazing... well I never played the 1st one. Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy are very very good games. Way ahead of their time in saber combat. If those games are in that package. I recommend it. They are no where near as long as KOTOR, but they are action packed, and the story of Kyle Katarn is another favorite of mine.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Ohhh.. interesting. All three of the jedi knight games are in that game package.. hmmm.. I'll have to check them out. :D

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I got KOTOR 1 & 2. :D

  20. Google forced me to get a Google+ account because I logged into youtube yesterday. Youtube keeps harassing me to use my real name, I say no and the only way to keep that is to save my username preferences which auto-creates a Google+ account. wtf google.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      If anyone wants to add me as a friend on there go ahead. I have no idea what my url is.. looks like goole.com/usr/0041a5s6f5??!?!? or some crap. -_-

  21. I need new lenses for my glasses. I swear my left eye is not focusing correctly at all.. Damn eye strain headaches all the time now. -_-

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lol. So I ended up getting new lenses. I might try contacts at some point. Glasses don't bother so much considering that I'm nearsighted. If I couldn't focus on objects at arm length, I'd have to wear contacts because I couldn't imagine only being able to focus through the small field of vision my glasses offer.

    2. Pchan

      Pchan

      I need glasses too but it's cheaper if I pick em up from India.

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      It'd probably be cheaper if I buy my lenses online, but I like having a place I can go to get free adjustments and nose pieces.
