A New Beginning…

Originally appeared on a very old blog of mine, which no longer exists.  It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about anything. The main reason being that I have been so tied up with college, working on StickSkills.com and just my social life. A lot of people have asked me why I’ve been so quiet lately, and I feel it’s time to answer that with a new blog post, to kick off my “new beginning.” So what’s up? This isn’t an easy question to answer, but let’s get started. Half way through the summer, I left my job at Xitol Softworks as their Public Relations and Community Director. While it was a tough choice for me, I am very happy I did so. I have no harsh words towards any of the team at Xitol, they are all amazing people who are extremely passionate about the universe they are sculpting.…

UBISOFT’S ROCKSMITH FIRST IMPRESSIONS AND HANDS ON

Originally appeared on a very old blog of mine, which no longer exists.  A few days ago, I had the opportunity to attend one of the best concerts of my life, the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival. Upon arriving early and being one of the first metal heads into the fest, I wandered around and ran into something unexpected, an Xbox 360, a pair of Astro Gaming headsets, two guitars and a nice demo of Rocksmith. After watching two others try the game out, I decided to jump ahead and take a stab at the game and see if the game fulfills on it’s promise to be a real guitar game. Upon putting the Astro Headsets on so I can hear the game over the metal music in the background and putting the guitar around my neck, I instantly felt attached to the game. While feeling familiar to Guitar Hero, it is no where near…

MS. ‘SPLOSION MAN REVIEW

Originally appeared on a very old blog of mine, which no longer exists.  A couple of years ago, a mysterious game from Twisted Pixel called ‘Splosion Man was released to the Xbox LIVE Arcade. Little did anyone know that this game would become the huge success as it is today that Twisted Pixel would have to create a full fledged sequel, Ms. ‘Splosion Man. Ms. ‘Splosion Man in general plays exactly the same as the original ‘Splosion Man did. You move around, blow up and move to the next checkpoint. Sounds simple? Not really. The game comes filled with many traps that sometimes make you want to throw your controller down on the ground and smash it into a million little pieces. Some of the traps that are in the game are familiar robots and scientists that were in the last ‘Splosion Man, but the majority are new and tougher enemies and…

Review: Universe Sandbox

Originally appeared on a very old blog of mine, which no longer exists.  Last week I saw a new game appear on Steam, Universe Sandbox. I was immediately drawn in not only because I have a little thing for stars and planets, but also because I saw a new sandbox game to try out. Immediately I went to the official website and tried out the demo which gave me access to premium features for 60 minutes and unlimited access to basic features. After playing for over a week, I have finally made a conclusion on the game, Universe Sandbox. Universe Sandbox is a game unlike others that I have seen before. At first glance it may look like a simple game, but after looking into it deeper you will notice that it is pretty complex. Universe Sandbox is simply a simulation of our universe. It has all the planets, moons,…

1,000 Twitter Followers

Originally appeared on a very old blog of mine, which no longer exists.  On April 3rd, 2007, I stumbled upon Twitter through Major Nelson’s blog. Today, 1,490 days later, I have finally reached the magical number of 1,000 followers. Wow, just wow…. I am speechless right now just because of this huge Twitter milestone. I honestly cannot believe that I have 1,000 people who actually care about what I say and enjoy listening to me. Thank you all! <3 Without you guys and girls, I probably wouldn’t have even thought of doing what I have done and doing what I am doing right now. There would probably never be “The Angry Face Blog”, there wouldn’t have been an “Abstract360″ there probably wouldn’t have even been an AngryFacing on the internet. Because of Twitter, I have been connected to hundreds, if not thousands of amazing people that I probably wouldn’t have known existed.…
