It’s Time For An Update

Yes, I’m pretty terrible at this “Updating the website” thing lately. Fairly soon, though, that should get better. We’re now less than two weeks away from Connecticon. On an individual level, I honestly don’t think I’ve practiced as much as I did for last year’s tournament. As far as my band situation goes, though, I’m …

Game Development and Rock Band Stuff

Yes, yes, I’m still working on Hysterium. Quite honestly, even I’m kind of amazed at that. I know how my personality is, and you can see the remnants of past aborted projects even looking through the posts on this site (RANDOM FUN FACT for newcomers: This site was originally intended as a headquarters for my …

Post GameUniCon Post

Yeah. Over the weekend, I traveled to Marlborough, MA for the first-ever GameUniCon, a convention that was being hyped as New England’s largest video gaming convention. I arrived on Thursday night, as I tend to do for these things, picked up my badge, and got ready for the weekend. On Friday, I realized that this, …

It Has Been Awhile

Indeed it has. Really, the best time to make a post announcing that I was still alive would have been Sunday. See, I don’t talk it a lot here–though it’s in the About Emptyeye section–but five years ago Sunday I was officially diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. In English, “A large cancerous mass in my …

Hey look, I live!

Just a quick post to confirm I haven’t gone off and died in a ditch somewhere. Lately I’ve been playing an XBOX Live Arcade game called Castle Crashers (And yes, I’m a bit late here), which is a fun little beat ’em up with some role-playing elements. It’s $15 in the XBOX Live Arcade, and …

And Yet Another Rock Band 2 Post

Indeed! Since the last tiem I updated, I’ve gotten a bunch of Rock Band 2 full combos on Expert Vocals. My most recent was number 73 out of 84 songs on-disc (Downloadable, or DLC songs, are generally counted separately). The most recent, and the one I’m most proud of, is Uncontrollable Urge, which has a …

Random Thoughts on a Sunday Afternoon

Given I haven’t updated in awhile–indeed, I haven’t really even been checking on this much, to the point that my Project Wonderful ad is currently delisted–I figured I’d throw everything into one somewhat large post. My quest to full-combo Rock Band 2’s vocals is moving along. I’ve now gotten the entire game gold-starred (A special …

Oh I-hi-hi, Weeeeeeeeell, I’m Still Alive.

And still playing Rock Band 2, of course. With slightly less than 4 months to go until Connecticon, I’ve decided I’m on a mission to get 100% on all 84 songs included in Rock Band 2 on Expert Vocals. Currently, I’m at 29 out of 84, meaning 1 new 100% every 2 days will get …

I’m a Rock Band Wizard…Or Something

Yep. Mainly due to this: Basically, it’s a 100% of The Who’s “Pinball Wizard” in Rock Band 2 on Expert Vocals. It’s not a particularly long song, but it has some of the more notoriously difficult phrases in the game in the “Sure plays a mean pinball”s. I never had any major trouble with those …

Activity Equals Page Views!

A few brief notes in lieu of doing anything productive tonight: 1. I’m convinced that what Rock Band needs is some of the early Power Rangers theme songs. C’mon, tell me the full version of the original theme, or the extended ZEO theme wouldn’t make awesome rhythm game songs. You can’t do it. Bonus points …
