Domina Exploit

Apr 6, 2017 | | Say something

Credit to chat-goer xenoaristo for turning me onto this strategy. Anything in italics are things that I’ve contributed as ideas for a better start, but they are not crucial to the point of the opening strategy. The gist of it is to attempt to buy a strong Gladiator from the Legate and skill him up […more]

Pre-Ungoro Class Spread

Mar 29, 2017 | | Say something

I think I was a bit too story-time in my last class discussion. Here’s a snapshot look at how I feel about the classes according to the 49 runs I did in March. I’ve added the stats below. The column for “tier” is inaccurate, that was around the Whispers era I think. I haven’t gotten […more]

Impressions Upon Return

Mar 20, 2017 | | Say something

I will say immediately: the average twitch viewer has become incredibly more positive. People apologize or leave immediately if they offend me, and that is a truly incredible thing. It inspires me to be more pleasant to them, when they are rarely ever the same people, and that really surprised me. More than anything else. […more]

Hearthstone Arena Time Commitment Heuristics

Feb 20, 2017 | | Say something

I have an enormous preoccupation with data, just below the capacity that would make it a marketable skill, and just above the point where I actually do anything. With the announcement of Hearthstone Arena leaderboards, I decided to determine how much time I would actually have to spend playing/streaming to place on the leaderboard. Don’t […more]

Snake vs Kevin McCallister

Feb 20, 2017 | | Say something

Solid Snake generally works on a procurement-on-site philosophy, so we can assume he’s still going to Outer Kevin with nothing. Counterpoint is that Kevin’s design philosophy is that he must be completely solitary for his architectural traps to be functional. He is “home alone” after all. In a scenario where Outer Kevin is in effect, […more]

It really bothers me that my first console was the Genesis, just because of the pun. Streaming order: Black Desert Online (paid too much to stop playing this) Hearthstone Arena (bread and butter, decent audience I guess) Steam Reviews (ugh) Faeria (another overpay) EMULATION (this post) So I haven’t been streaming enough because BDO is […more]

The New Rub

Feb 8, 2016 | | Say something

I got hurt at work. This ruined my designs. I got a new job. I get to wake up two hours later. When my back heals, I’ll be able to lift and reintroduce a caloric deficit. My new job requires no lifting but does require alertness and attentiveness to detail. To me, that makes rest […more]

Recall: The higher the tier the more important it is, and within each tier, given things are more important to me based on frequency. Physiological Sleep Diet Exercise These are things that I want to do every day. That makes them prime candidates for becoming habits. Folks seem to choose goals, and annual resolution, as […more]


Jan 3, 2016 | | Say something

I don’t have resolutions, I just got a job. As an artist I relish limitations because I’m absolutely terrible at choosing things arbitrarily. (If you consider that most people mean “unexpected” when they say “random,” then their description of me becomes a lot easier to understand: they’re idiots.) I have had an immensely difficult time […more]
