Dragon Age fun

So, downloaded latest DLC for Dragon Age. And it was....abrupt. I dunno, I knew it wouldn't be as long as Awakenings, but it only took me 30 minutes and I thought for this one, they'd make it a little longer with a better ending. I mean, it's about Morrigan, one of the main characters. You'd think it'd be a better ending than "Your book's over there along with something else you'll find interesting, kthanxbye!" From what I understand, it was supposed to be the last DLC, so it was kinda sucky to leave it so open like that. Just be self-contained or part of the main story, that would be awesome.

Also downloaded Leliana's Song, which I found entertaining. At least that one had a finish to it, though it may be odd that I mostly want to know what happened to Scratch. I liked him, he was good character. ^_^;

Anyways, not much else. Still trying to work on a portfolio, though I've narrowed it down somewhat and I'm just trying to make the pages for the physical one. Making the online one will be a bit longer since there's more I have to do to it, but I can make some of the thumbnails now to cut down on time later. Blarugh. ><

Randomness

I feel compelled to post something today, and I'm not quite sure why. ^_^;

Not a lot has been going on since Quakecon finished. I've been slowly winding down and playing a lot more Dragon Age, which is still a lot of fun. Picked up a character I didn't recruit the first time around, and he's hilarious. Lets just say he has a one-track mind......and it's the one between his legs. XD I've been playing with different party configurations and enjoying the random background conversations they have. I'm also enjoying seeing what minor effects the different backgrounds do. Like, when you're the dwarf noble background, people in the dwarven city recognize you and react accordingly. It's kinda neat, actually. I also watched the trailer for Dragon Age 2 and it's on the WANT list. Seriously, if I can get the extra money, I want to preorder it. Heee!

Let's see, what else? Oh, FFXI! We're almost to the end of the Chains of Promathia missions, and I'm totally excited about it! Of course, I'll probally die specatarially, but what else is new? XD More on that in my FFXI blog when we're done. It's about time I start adding to that. ^_^;

Quakecon, done and gone

Yep, Quakecon is now over. So how did this year stack up compared to previous ones? Well, they didn't allow ANY file sharing program, which kinda defeated the purpose for me going. Don't get me wrong, I still love gaming and managed to get some Q3A in before the vertigo kicked in. And, I finished Dragon Age *w00t!*. But I was really really hoping to get all of MST3K and Babylon 5 this year. Which didn't happen. I understand why, it just really sucked.

Welcome to the city night!

New layout, new organization! Welcome to my b2evolution version of my site. Most everything is up and organized, and best of all, it's easier to deal with on the back end. The one thing that I didn't get up is my writings. I was going to add them, but in going through them, I just really couldn't bring myself to post them back up. I'm considering adding a writing blog that I only post stories on, but still undecided on that.

Anyways, I've gotten everything organized and hopefully fixed. If you find an error, use the contact form above to send me an email so I can fix it. Hope you enjoy the new look!

New look and other things

Ok, so I've got a new layout I'm liking, which I'm going to have up as soon as I work it out. See, I've been experimenting, and have found ways to incorperate ALL of the stuff from this page into b2news, so I'm going to be doing that with the new layout. Of course, this means I have to reorganize how I do stuff here, but it will hopefully be awesome!

However, this also means I have to reinstall b2evo, this time on the base site. Which means that there may be some disappearing pages here and then when I get around to it. I'll post a warning before I do so, and it won't be for a little while since I want to get the skin working perfectly before I switch, but just a fair warning.

In other news, I'm now level 32! To celebrate, we went and had AWESOME steak dinner, then next day went to Six Flags. I got mild sunburn from not reapplying sunblock, sore everything from bracing on the rides, finally got to ride the Batman coaster and nearly blacked out twice on the Titan. Ok, so only the first two parts were sucky, but the rest of day was awesome. Yay!
