  1. Dishonored - or - GIFs By Breckon

    Upon arriving to America and settling in coastal Massachusetts Tevye is visited by The Outsider...
  2. http://steamcommunity.com/id/20ozmonkey I need to populate my list with some thumbs.
  3. Idle Explorers (Spelunky, um, thumbs)

    Whoo! Beat Olmec during the daily and eked out the $500k achievement by bombing out gems in Olmec's stage. I did mess up and didn't have any bombs in the City of Gold so I couldn't get the Book of the Dead.
  4. Idle Explorers (Spelunky, um, thumbs)

    I managed to cleanly kill three of the four spiders that were down the hallway to the altar in today's daily. The fourth didn't go so well.
  5. Idle Explorers (Spelunky, um, thumbs)

    I died real close to where spork armada died. I wish I hadn't blown my last bomb killing a tiki trap on the previous level. (not pictured is the shopkeeper rampaging below the platform where the door is.)
  6. Idle Explorers (Spelunky, um, thumbs)

    I did my second successful Olmec run earlier today on a regular adventure mode. Then I died on 1-2 to an arrow trap during the daily challenge. Barf.
  7. Nintendo 3DS

    http://www.square-enix.co.jp/subaseka/ Ooooh yes. EDIT: Looked into it more. It's likely an iOS port, but a tweet from one of the writers told people to hold on to their butts until the end of the countdown.
  8. Books, books, books...

    I just finished reading Kraken by China Mieville. It was the first book I bought when I picked up my Kindle Fire and it took me until two days ago to finish it. I was completely captivated for the first third of it, but then it turns weird and it was hard for it to keep my attention until the end. Two things happened while I was very slowly reading Kraken that shifted my view on it. Penny Arcade put out a strip about China Mieville while I was in the middle of reading Kraken and it more or less confirmed my thoughts of "Jesus there are a lot of crazy made up words that are never well explained." Secondly, I went to London so I had some knowledge of a few of the locations, making the story a bit more interesting any time one was mentioned. This hasn't turned me off of China Mieville though and I'll probably read some of his other books in the future. Now I finally get to rip through The Sense of an Ending. EDIT: I also downloaded a bunch of Sherlock Holmes novels off of Project Guttenberg in preparation for my flight to London, but I never read them. I need to get to that.

  10. Giant Bomb Joins GameSpot

    Yep! That's why almost all of the fans of the sites are on edge and don't really believe that Giant Bomb won't be cannibalized, but all of the people from the various Whiskey sites keep promising that it's a good thing for everyone involved. Dunno how that will turn out, but I'm trying to keep my cynical side away.
  11. Giant Bomb Joins GameSpot

    They're promising that everything will remain the same, but with more money. I trust they struck a deal that will keep any crazy VP's from trying to merge the sites, but you never can be too sure. Also during a quick livestream Jeff was finally able to say why he was fired from Gamespot. I guess it was something that was slowly building up with new managers at Gamespot and the Kane and Lynch review was more or less the turning point. Tested's changes are super crazy though...

    Breckoncast is hilarious and sad.
  13. An inevitable demise, and a cry for help.

    I got my second red ring yesterday, the first being in 2007. The RRoD warranty for it expires in 14 days so I guess it was well timed.
  14. Recently completed video games

    Two days ago I finished Deus Ex for the first time. I no longer have to hold the shame of knowing I haven't played it. I think I started it on Monday and got hooked on it hard for three days. I finished Bioshock 2 last night. It was pretty good. I liked the characters more than the first games cast. I don't remember the first game ever giving you much of a reason to care about the player character. You are given a reason to empathize at least a little bit with Delta. I'm also glad
