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 …

Resolutions

2013 was not the best year, to say the least. As we start 2014, I am currently Unemployedeye, among other things. I was never one for making resolutions. But with this being a year of big transition, I figure this is as good a year as any to do so. So with that, my first …

The Twitch.TV 2000-Follower Special Poll!

As of this writing, I have 1908 followers on my Twitch.TV page. That means, much like I did for the 1000-follower threshold, it’s time to make a poll for what I should play for the 2000-follower special. Since I’m not going to Awesome Games Done Quick this year, and since I’m starting farther out than …

Game Review- Scribblenauts Unlimited

Nowadays, it’s rare that I actually play a game that could conceivably be called “current”. The last time I did so was probably Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. With the advent of the latest Humble Bundle (As of this writing, the Humble WB Bundle), I decided to grab some games I had been meaning to pick …

On Charity Video Game Marathons

On Twitter and the like, various members of the speedrunning community have given their thoughts on the seeming glut of marathons in the community. Because I am a shameless trendchaser, these are my own thoughts on it. I have joked on Twitter about my less-than-stringent methods for choosing whether or not I will participate in …

Well, This Rusted Quickly

I’ve very much neglected this blog of late, which is rather sad. Let’s start with some news. A couple months ago, I joined Rize Up Gaming, an organization dedicated to fighting racism/sexism/bullying within gaming communities, especially within MOBA communities. They also put on monthly charity marathons, which is mainly where I come in, as I’ve …

More Coldly Calculating Polls For Your Voting Pleasure

That’s right, once again you get to help me decide the fate of my streams. I’m thinking of adding a fourth day to my schedule. This would be a short, one-to-two-hour stream, brought on by my plan to eventually fill in a major hole in my gaming knowledge by playing through the Playstation 2 Grand …

Introducing Sylvia’s Excellent Time Usurping Pugilists (S.E.T.U.P.)!

As I’ve mentioned previously, I recently downloaded Gamemaker Studio and was playing around with it, intending to make a Sylvia-centered Kung Fu remake (A Kung Fu Remix, if you will). Well, today I can present the first proof-of-concept of this idea, for Windows users. As I get more into how Gamemaker Studio actually works, a …
