The Walking Dead and It’s Annoying Trend

Man, there are things I need to post about, but this one just can’t wait. First, it should be said that I greatly enjoy the Walking Dead. One of my favorite shows, one that has so many flaws yet still delivers in a way that outpaces them. And I still think that, even though this post is going to be largely negative. Am I upset Glenn’s dead? Sure. Am I upset Abe is dead? I mean, I guess, but he’s been living on borrowed time for at least two seasons so that just kinda fit. Overall, the scene was well done. It was brutal, gory, gave the characters a strong death, and was probably the best raw display of emotion any of these actors have displayed before. Something that, in watching the Talking Dead, really seems genuine. And once again, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is just fan-friggin’-tastic as Negan. I neither…

Destiny: Rise of Iron – First Impressions (and review I guess…)

I really, really want to be fair in this. We will see how that goes. After about an eight month hiatus from Destiny, I logged in and played for the first time last night. I’ve logged in two or three times since January, but they were only to see what was up with the new patches. In those cases, I didn’t even go on a patrol let alone actually take a run at any missions. The main reason for that hiatus has been blasted across the internet, you don’t need me to really add anything. Either way, Rise of Iron was released last night and I was ready to get my game on. Two and a half hours later, I beat it. I am not even kidding. The story stretches maybe four or five missions. I sat down at 8:00. Between my daughter waking back up and having to get…

Sorcerer Rising Second Edition Changes

Holy crap. I wrote this post in May of last year. Please do not confuse my awe with pride, as I am ashamed it has taken me this long to thaw myself out. The first sentence for the original post initially read, “In my most recent update for FayTown Calling, I made mention of the second edition I released for Sorcerer Rising.” I have no idea what post I am actually referring to, so sorry. But I did revise Sorcerer Rising early last year. The main purpose of that was editing, making sure that I didn’t just leave the quality of the book where I thought it needed to be. The rest of this post is from May of last year. Content changes were minor. Off the top of my head, there were a few scenes that I elaborated on, fleshed out. None were added, thought I did think hard…

Late Review – Boardwalk Empire

I have been in the midst of watching Boardwalk Empire. As is my normal custom, I didn’t start until well after everyone else has consumed it. Spoilers are obviously ahead and in full disclosuure, I must also say (and this probably gives you an idea of what I think ahead of time) I did not finish the series and have no intention of doing so. I got through season four but couldn’t make it any further. I love history, always have. Gangster history is no exception. It’s such an odd and interesting era in America’s culture. It is possibly one of the best examples of how to build a black market, was a time of lawlessness rarely seen, as well as a moment when law was so blatantly disregarded that the line between common sense and corruption became blurred. And the legends, oh the legends. Our country is so young, there are…

FayTown Calling Update

Had a thought on the way to pick up dinner last night. That thought cascaded into a multitude of others and I think I have figured out a major flaw in the current story, as well as a way to correct it. Funny how this works. I have played a few different puzzle games throughout the years, one of my favorites being Unblock Me. It’s a game you can play forever without really doing anything. Often times I would get stuck on a level, so tightly that I intimately knew all the moves I could make. I’d have to set it down. I’d pick it up later and without even trying, knock out the level and the next dozen after it. It is perhaps the Procrastinator’s Faith, but I am a big believer that I am never not working on something. I’m letting it stew. Anyway, I’ll be working on…
