Vote for the Second 10/4 Suffering Saturday Game!

I’m continuing to work my way through Ecco the Dolphin. No, after 12 hours of play, I still haven’t beaten it, but I have made it to the infamous Welcome to the Machine level. I even managed to complete it a few times, but I sadly died on the final boss, which meant I got …

Vote on the 9/20 Suffering Saturday!

With another week of suffering came another game defeated. I managed to get through all of Snake Rattle ‘N Roll, so that means it’s time for another game to take its place in the poll. Joining Cosmo Tank and Rad Racer as your voting options this week is our first Genesis game. That’s right, it’s …

Vote on the 9/13 Suffering Saturday!

First off, thanks to everyone who’s been voting so far. The voting totals are climbing, which makes me happy. We broke 60 votes for the first time with this past poll! This past week, I managed, with many continues, to defeat 3-D Worldrunner. I then beat it twice more instantly. So that means a new …

Vote on the 9/6 Suffering Saturday!

While it took about 3 hours, I did manage to beat Blaster Master yesterday. I didn’t manage to make it through Snake, Rattle ‘N Roll, but that’s okay. That, along with 3-D Worldrunner (Read about both of these in the previous poll post), will re-enter the voting pool. Joining them is a new challenger. Those …

Vote on the 8/30 Suffering Saturday!

So today I had a successful Suffering Saturday stream, beating both Super Ghouls ‘N Ghosts and the arcade version of Ghosts ‘N Goblins. Look for writeups on those in the Games I Beat In 2014 series soon. For now, though, it’s time to vote on what game I suffer through next Saturday! Since two of …

Thoughts on Streaming Speedruns, and *GDQs

These are some thoughts that I had about streaming and the Games Done Quick marathons. On Streaming As A Skill I tend to lurk, and occasionally post on, the Twitch subreddit. A common question for awhile was “How do I get a bigger viewership?” or “What are some games I can play that can get …

Introducing the Suffering Saturday Streams!

In the last month or so, I’ve tried to come up with an actual schedule for my stream. To that end, I stream 4 days a week when I can, for anywhere from 3 to 6 hours a day. Yesterday, I tried (And failed) to beat Blaster Master on stream. Despite that the Wall2 controls …

State of the Emptyeye- March through May

It’s been awhile since I did one of these. Let’s get to it. First of all, I’ve started my new job. It’s the same title as my previous one–Systems Analyst/Programmer–but my actual work is quite different. Without getting too into specifics, my first big job is moving data in an Access database out of Access …

State of the Emptyeye- February/Early March

Let’s check in with how I’ve been doing of late, shall we? The Games I Beat In 2014 series continues to grow. It now has 17 entries, six of which are games I had never beaten before. The most recent (As of this writing) in the series, Metroid Fusion, was a fun, expected entry that …

State of the Emptyeye for January

So I should use this “blog” thing I have more often. Since I made a Resolutions Post early in January, let’s see how I’ve done with those so far! Lose Some Weight: This is generally going pretty well–though my rate of weight loss has slowed down, I’m a little over halfway to my weighing-147-pound goal …
