On Diablo

I really didn’t intend for this to be a gaming blog, but it’s all I want to talk about at the moment. Life is rough recently, so escapism is always on my mind =P. I played D2 when I was in high school. I played it to death. Single player and on realms. I played […]

Entering the 21st Century

I decided, after all of the hype and excitement and the collective Redditgasm over Portal 2, I would break down, install Steam, and play the original (in Wine, of course). Obviously, I decided to pick up the Orange Box because you can’t really beat $20 for a bunch of “new” games. I think that now […]
