Monday, April 9th, 2012 - Too Tired to Think up a Title

What's up guys, you read for your daily dose of me? I've managed to actually not forget to do this every other day for the past little bit, which is pretty nice, guess I might actually manage to get a few more posts out. What the fuck did I just write. Holy shit I'm tired right now. I need to stop going to bed at 2am. I don't really have a lot to write since I didn't leave my desk except to eat and do laundry today. Normally I at least go to school, but now that the semester's over, i barely leave my basement. That's probably not too healthy. Whatever.

As far as video output goes, I managed to record some more Mass Effect 3 stuff for tomorrow, which means that I was comfortable with putting up all of Minecraft life 6 I have so far today. The last video has about 30 minutes of uploading time left before it will be released, but I'll link it here anyway, since YouTube gives you the link as soon as you start uploading. Hopefully I'll be able to do more stuff tomorrow, and I can keep up my regular schedule for a few more days before I manage to forget and go a week without recording. Without further ado, though, Minecraft life 5&6:

Life 5
Episode 1   ---   Episode 2

Life 6
Episode 1   ---   Episode 2   ---   Episode 3   ---   Episode 4

Sunday, April 8th, 2012 - Movie Reviews!

Hey guys, so as I said yesterday, there were no videos today. I probably should have written my Mass Effect 2 review to make up for that fact, but instead I went and played random games with my friends for a few hours. Last night we ended up seeing Safe House and American Reunion. Safe House was really good if you're into action movies, all the stuff you'd expect: gun fights, car chases, murder out the ass, etc. I would suggest it if you're into that. American Reunion was pretty good, but I've never seen any other American Pie's, so I didn't get a lot of the jokes, and my friend explained a bunch to me since he's seen them all.  He seemed to enjoy it a lot more than me. If you've seen the rest of the American Pie's and liked them, I'd say check it out, but if you haven't, like me, I would watch the others (at least 1/2/Wedding, Beta House/Band Camp not AS necessary) first,. or just skip it altogether. I've yet to make a formal rating system for my blog, so I'm not gonna give them any star ratings, plus I'm really bad at doing that.

In YouTube news, I did a bunch of Minecraft recording today, so look for that tomorrow! It's about an hour and it should all go up tomorrow, assuming I record tomorrow, if I don't I'll do 30m Monday and 30m Tuesday.  Obviously no links, since there were no videos.  So, see y'all tomorrow!

Saturday, April 7th, 2012 - Mass Effect 3!

Hey guys, so I know I'm writing this pretty early today, after yesterday I said I wanted to write these at a specific time, which I still haven't managed to get a single post out at. I'm terrible at schedules. Like I said yesterday, I spent the day with some of my friends from high school since they all came home from university this weekend. Went to lunch together and had an all around good time. We're planning on going to see a movie later tonight at my local drive-in, either Safe House + American Reunion, or Wrath of the Titans + 21 Jump St., not sure yet. I'll discuss my thoughts on that tomorrow, probably.

For those that don't care at all about me as a person, and just want my content, I posted the ME2 finale today (finally!) as well as started ME3, with episodes 1&2. I didn't manage to get any recording done today between my test, lunch, studying, and movies, but I plan on doing some tomorrow. Because of the mass Effect spam though, this means I have nothing to post tomorrow. Sorry! I should record some random game and keep it as like a reserve or something in case this happens again. Also, since I finished ME2, I'll be doing my review on that soon, probably some time this week, so look for that here! But, until tomorrow, here's today's video links (Part 2 is not processed at time of writing, but should be soon)

Friday, April 6th, 2012 - Video Spam

So, once again I'm writing this a lot later than I like to. For the new people I typically try to write pretty close to 9pm EST, so I'm about an hour late today. Whatever, I was busy not studying. I have my first exam tomorrow morning, and it's in economics, which is an elective, and a complete bollocks course, with no sense of using proper variables or mathematics in it's calculations. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm an engineer, and I do a LOT of very complex math, but in economics they simplify the math down so hard it's barely even math anymore, and then they try to teach you not to use math and use "your knowledge of economics" to solve questions. Fuck that shit, I'll take my calculus any day. A specific example is they wanted me top calculate the slope of a line using some made up equation, but I was like fuck that, I'll derive that bitch, and afterwards I get to an answer, and I'm told it's wrong. I'm sorry, is my calculus to hardcore for your pussy economic bullshit? ARRGGGHHH NERD RAGE.

In less angry and mathematical news, I did absolutely no recording today, which is to be expected when I have an exam 11 hours from time of writing (10pm EST). I uploaded most of the Mass Effect 2 stuff I have, except the final episode, which should go up tomorrow, as well as the first couple episodes of Mass Effect 3! Finally! I also just realized if I do that, I will have 0 footage ready for Sunday, and I'm planning on spending the day with some friends who are coming home for the weekend, but I'll still try to get some done when I get back. Here's links to all the Mass Effect 2 videos I spammed today (there's a LOT):

Episode 45   ---   Episode 46   ---   Episode 47   ---   Episode 48   ---   Episode 49
Episode 50   ---   Episode 51   ---   Episode 52   ---   Episode 53   ---   Episode 54

I also posted a video of me solving a Rubik's Cube for no apparent reason: Link

Thursday, April 5th, 2012 - Already Forgot...

So, it my typical style, after 1 day I manage to forget yesterday's post, but I'll be doing today's! I haven't really done much the last couple days. Yesterday was the last day of classes, and I woke up to them all being cancelled, so I did a crap load of recording and managed to finally finish Mass Effect 2! I'll be spamming those videos on my YouTube over the next couple days, and should be starting Mass Effect 3 shortly after it's 1 month anniversary. Because of this, there won't be a lot of Minecraft stuff till probably next week while I try to get that out, but don't worry! Minecraft is NOT cancelled. I'd also like to point out that although the next couple days will have a lot of videos as I get stuff out, after that the rest of April may be a bit slower (but not cancelled, still planning daily videos), as it is exam time for me, so I'll have to be doing a lot more studying, and a lot less gaming.

I kind of already talked about YouTube stuff in my personal paragraph, since it tied in well, so I don't have a lot to put into my YouTube paragraph. Here's yesterday's Minecraft hardcore challenge videos if you're interested; both lives 3&4 since they were both very short. I'll update this post with today's Mass Effect links later today after they're all up.

Life 3 Part 1   ---   Life 3 Part 2   ---   Life 4 Part 1
Mass Effect
Part 39   ---   Part 40   ---   Part 41   ---   Part 42   ---   Part 43   ---   Part 44

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012 - The Return!

Hey guys! I know there's actually a couple of you who read my blog, so first of all I'd like to apologize for being gone for so long. I enjoy writing, but sometimes I get discouraged because I feel like I write poorly, or I just kind of get distracted and forget about the blog since it takes a lot more time than just doing videos.  I really do want to get back into doing these, though, so I can talk about a lot of the stuff that I can't fit into my videos, or I just don't think about while recording. I don't know how much I'll write today, but I plan for the format of these to go back to the way it was before after this post, a paragraph or two of something interesting, followed by video links and any information that may pertain to YouTube (i.e. whether I record or not, new series's, no-video days, etc.).

Today the main things I want to say are that I'm back, and I hope you guys are enjoying Minecraft Hardcore so far. I've been getting some good feedback, and plan on recording life 3 this afternoon. I have some ideas on how to possibly make it a little more interesting or exciting, but I'll talk about those in the life 3 videos. They should go up probably the 4th (tomorrow at time of writing) as long as I do actually get them recorded. Mass Effect 2 is slowing down a lot as some may have noticed, but I still will finish it, viewers or not, as I still need to play through it to get my evil character ready for Mass Effect 3, and maybe in the future people will go back and watch it, and I want it to be completed.

I also have been upgrading most of my computer peripherals over the last couple weeks (monitors, keyboard, mouse, headset), although the headset was in January. I tried to make a video showing some stuff off yesterday, and after 2 failed recordings of YouTube messing things up, I decided to get a proper webcam recorder, and then I got busy and had no time to do the video. I'll do that today as well, probably before Minecraft life 3.

This turned out pretty long, which is to be expected after 2 weeks off I guess, but I'm going to publish it now, even though it's only 1pm, but I don't really want to be tempted to add to it, because it doesn't need to be any longer. So, hopefully I will talk to you tomorrow.
