What makes us gamers

Anger Management Issues

You may think that I like to blow shit up, and murder bots and camp and snipe, just because I have some sort of psychotic rage issue I need to address.

Today, you’d be right. I need to run Unreal Tournament, put a map on called FIAB, or fish in a barrel, where there is a single instagib rifle in the center of a lake, and I go up there and shoot everything that moves. A bot named after the boyfriend, an slurry of ex-friends, bots for teachers and family, all explode in a shower of bloody rain before me.

This is theraputic, because it expels the rage I feel at being helpless, powerless, and used. I’d never wish harm to any of these people, hell, I can’t even bring myself into a confrontational situation most of the time, but somehow my soul is soothed, and they never know, and we’re all better off.

It’s not about acting out on these frustrations, it’s about acknowledging them in such a way that is least harmful. I could go into detail about the games I played when my mom died, and I was all alone and not happy about it, but that’s another post.

Saints Row 2 Gameplay for fun

My Youtube Video


It has taken hours, but I managed to upload a video to youtube. Now let’s see if they take it down like they did the last eight. Sheesh. Anyhow, enjoy some in game video. Wish I had cowboy boots like that. Hell, I’d be lucky if my hair managed to stay in place.

Welcome to my domain

This is my world now.

The new domain transfer went smoother than Glenlivet. Which I happen to consider to be very very very high ranking scotch, just so you know. As it happens, now that I can post many types of things, let me show you something wonderful.

God, I love that mod that makes almost everything visible.

Anyhow, bookmark this page! More great things to come. Music, videos, and much more! I’ve even got an outfit to do a video blog in.

Moving

Posted: January 28, 2011 in General Maiming

I have moved to manicsniper.com

 

  Follow me!

I’m trying out my Plantronics headset.

 

And remember those games I bought? I get to install them. Plus there is a Home Architect program and a Family Tree maker, I’m sure I can use those somehow.

Okay, here goes the soundcheck….

Testing with the soundtrack to Angel the TV series.

Volume seems okay. Clarity is pretty good. Not ery boomy. My other headset had a usb powered kickass bass. Left-right separation seems good. Better actually than I expected.

Now, try some rap… Fiddle with the equalizer. And still no earshattering kaboom. Probably for the best. My other ones hurt my ears playing too much war type shooters with the loud loud bass. These are really clear.

Not bad for sixty bucks. I tried them on in Future Shop, liked them, but they were sold out. So in another store, I got to meet this awesome storeclerk, who recommended them. So here it is, and reviewed. Not really in a big way. If you want more review type reviews, just comment and tell me.

 

I will be moving there shortly!

Whereupon I shall use my css skills to make a good style and colour and all that, eventually. And I can expand and actually put up videos and songs, and have more control over images. I’m so happy!

I think that to celebrate the move, I should reward everyone with naked pictures of me!

NOT!!!!

You’re just going to have to wait until I’m super famous and end up on the cover of a magazine doing a photo shoot with only a kinect covering my nakedness.

Which, will like totally happen. Especially since I put that idea out there. Please? Any magazines out there? Young gamer chick, ready and willing to pose for nerd magazine?

Gah. Life’s tough. But yeah, bought the domain this morning, thanks to a most amazing dude who actually checked when I was complaining that I couldn’t get the domain, and it was magically available now, when it wasn’t last year. So hooray, and thanks dude.

Same amazing dude, who should be reading this, has got an awesome Magic the Gathering collection. I am very jealous. My cyber decks don’t impress him. I must build a deck, and challenge him.

Probably about the same time as that photo shoot.
