    I’m playing Mass Effect 2 right now. I tried slogging through the first Dragon Age but I never could into that. Glad I moved on. ME2 is fantastic so far.

    I have so much to catch up on. I’m still playing Star Wars Battlefront as well.

    I had problems with Tim when I lived in VV. Conversations started normally and then he would snap and get scary as fuck. Like Bilbo getting all crazy seeing that ring. He’d spew filthy nasty shit at you and get real aggressive. Leave your doorstep. Then show up again a few days or weeks later. He’d disappear for a while, then it started over again. This was five years ago, I’m amazed it’s still going on.

    Encounters on the street with panhandlers are one thing but this guy coming knocking on windows and front doors and going berzerk was not alright.

    I got a new video card! I’m now playing Star Wars Battlefront now and all is right in the world. I wish it had more of the squad/command elements of some of the Battlefield franchise had. This is more of a casual style shooter. Gorgeous game though.

    I’m getting my Star Wars on!

    Well obviously! Watch out for the snake though. :)

    I’m also a fan of Kal-Q-La-Tor.

    I tend to get older versions of video games on Steam sales, so I’m actually introducing myself to the Fallout series now by playing Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (i.e., the one with all the DLC ever released for the game). Interesting, not quite as clean or user-friendly an interface as the Elder Scrolls series (the other major line from the same studio, Bethesda), but good. But I can see myself getting into this.

    Fallout 3 was my introduction to the series. It’s fantastic. Those songs will get stuck in your head F-O-R-E-V-E-R.

    Hahaha! Walker it was totally like that.

    Now I’m going down this rabbit hole that starts when you just need to upgrade a video card but end up reading about mini gaming rigs. What are you playing these days?

    Does Superchefs still have a location downtown? I’ve been to the one in Gahanna and the superhero theme and good breakfasts would be a hit with any kid.

    So I picked up Star Wars Battlefront and installed it on my PC. I know its been a while since I’ve upgraded but it wouldn’t even play. Some dust even coughed out of the front of the computer. Updated all my drivers but still no luck.

    Might be time for a new video card!

    I’m playing the first Dragon Age game right now. After playing Mass Effect 1, Dragon Age seems kinda boring. The story is alright. It just feels like a slog to me and I’m not feeling it. When Fallout 4 and Star Wars Battlefront coming out. I’m wondering what the hell I’m doing trying to catch up with these old games!

    The move makes a lot of sense to me. They can prep all the weird and wonderful components in their kitchen. While much of the listeria risk and the boring bulky operation of mixing of tons of dairy in really cold machines moves elsewhere.

    They probably should have done this a long time ago.

    I miss a few flavors that Jeni’s used to make. I hope this works out.

    WOW offers 110 Mbps service for 60 bucks a month. I don’t think you can get a deal that good from TWC.

    Like Walker mentioned, you’ve got to watch for bill creep but this happens with TWC too. I’ve had no trouble calling in and getting whatever the current promotion price is. I had to upgrade my cable modem when I bumped up to 110 Mbps but they recommended a cablemodem to purchase without putting up a fuss about it. You could lease a modem from them for 10 bucks a month. It makes sense to buy your own.

    I never had bad service with TWC when I was a customer of theirs, but my experience with WOW has been top notch.

    I’ll never forget when that AT-AT made of legos fell on your head. /sniff I thought you were a goner.

    Lets have a BBQ and celebrate!

    Just ordered a new gaming PC…stepping up my game.

    Very nice. Every 5 years or so I get all hyped about a specific game that makes me bonkers for building a new rig. It’s been a long time and Star Wars Battlefront is giving me that itch.

    I’ve never played Mass Effect. So I just started the first one.

    What ever happened with the Tyrells?

    I thought the last 3 episodes were amazing. Having Benjen Stark appear in the preshow trailer was downright cruel!
