Evolve – Big Alpha, Big Quarry, Big Fun

If you’ve seen my twitter feed, or my posts on player.me this past weekend, you know I’ve been playing all the Evolve Big Alpha I could get my hands on. If you don’t follow my twitter feed, I’m telling you about it now (also – what’s wrong with you? @WolfStar76, super-easy. Follow me.) If you haven’t read up on Evolve, don’t feel bad. While I’m super-excited about the game, and it seems to be gaining traction...

Extra Life Charity

My 2014 Extra Life experience

I did it! My (gaming) marathon is complete. I should probably do the slow tease here. Talk about how my 24 hours of gaming went, and then put the payload at the very end – revealing the total of how much money we raised together. However, I don’t think my writing skills are quite up to the task, and besides – I don’t get that many readers anyhow. There’s no reason to antagonize you so....

Extra Life 2014

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve dreamed about how great it would be if I could sit back, play video games – and get paid to do so. It is said that if you find a job you love, you’ll never work a day of your life, and what a life that would be! But what if I could do something even better than that? What if, by the simple act of playing video...

How times flies when you’re having. . . something in close proximity to fun. My last post was all about my plans for the year.  Streaming three times a week, figuring out how to do a vlog, and how I was going to blog twice a week. So far I’ve managed to keep up with the video game streaming three times a week – but the blogging thing? I do believe I set myself FAR...

2014 Approaches – Planning

2014 Approaches – Planning

Having looked at where I started as a kid, and seeing what I’ve been up to lately, I suppose its time to turn an eye toward where I want to be, starting in 2014. The interesting thing is that there’s so much I want to do – I should really sit down and figure out how to stage it all into my life one piece at a time. Elsewise, I’m all too likely to try...

2014 Approaches – Reflecting

2014 Approaches – Reflecting

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to those of you so celebrating today. My kids had Grandma, Grandpa, and the wife and me up a little before 6am. It was nice to sleep in a little for a Christmas. 😉 So, on Monday I took a close look at my formative years as a gamer – as it turns out, a fairly social gamer, when time would allow. I’ forgot to mention the bit about sometimes...

2014 approaches – Reminiscing

2014 approaches – Reminiscing

My life, these last few months, has been in a bit of a crazy spin for ideas. I’ve got a bunch of creative things that want to come bubbling to the surface – positive life changes I want to make, and other bits and pieces in my head, that I need to express them soon, or I’m going to drown in half of them. And as 2014 is drawing close, I find that, as dull...

Dusting things off

Dusting things off

Well, lookie here. Turns out I’m still alive, and I haven’t forgotten about my website after all. This post is really just a test post – I’m doing some site redesign, updating and testing plugins, and trying to figure out how to make things look on the page like they look in my head. I’m also testing to see how the new Social integration with Twitter is gonna work out for me. So, if you’re...

Birthday Planning

Birthday Planning

As I suspected might happen, now that I’ve opened the floodgates a little, I suddenly want to dump a bunch of things down into this space. Sit tight, the next couple days are likely to see multiple posts. That said. I turn 35 in 80 days. I’m trying to come up with exactly how I want to celebrate. As fortune would have it, my birthday falls on a Saturday this year, and we have that...

A fresh start

A fresh start

I’ve been putting off really using this blog, because I’ve been torn in how I wanted to use it. Part of me wants to make this a gaming/d&d blog – and as such, I should keep personal stuff out of it. But frankly? I don’t (yet) have enough to say, nor the discipline to say it regularly, so that idea hasn’t gotten of the ground. Instead? This is, henceforth, my personal blog. I’ve played around...
