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 is totally worth it.
I’m also working on learning (Or more accurately, relearning; I took a class in it back in 2003 for college) some Visual Basic stuff in the hope that I’ll be more useful at work. Not that I’m particularly worried about my job status right now, but our VB specialist left the department over a year ago, so I figure picking some stuff up will eventually help take some pressure off the person in the department who is basically God of All Applications right now.As a bonus, once I get more comfortable with the language, I’d like to do some of two things with it–make some form of software for organizing Rock Band tournaments, and/or create what amounts to a glorified old-school dungeon crawling game in the style of the early Wizardry games.
Speaking of Rock Band2, I achieved my goal of 84 out of 84 Expert Vocal full combos, well ahead of my goal of the end of July. When I play Rock Band now, I tend to play some of my DLC that I bought and then proceeded to not play (Yeah, I’m a model of fiscal responsibility). Eventually, though, I’ll need to work on my Rock Band 1 imports, since they’ll be selectable at Game UniCon in late August, and my scores on those are…well, let’s just say I don’t have all of them 100%ed.
