I love all of this.

It was super jarring when he came over from GI (where things were cleaner and usually bleeped). Years of being pent up is being released, I suppose.

I swear a lot, so if I notice it then things may be a little excessive. But it's all excited and jokey so I don't mind it at all.

The Powerbombcast (a premium podcast) got me to kind of follow wrestling this year. I'm... I don't know what I'm doing.

Awesome! Dans Insurance came through. He is going to donate everything to charity, and it is still about 350 bucks off. Huzzah!

Excellent, I will go and donate. Hopefully it still meets the goal.

Big respect for @danryckert for donating money that he could've just taken for himself. Something shitty has become a positive.

Man, I'm so glad I live 15 minutes from Galloping Ghost. When people talk about depressing arcades, I'm just glad I have one of the best on my way home from work.

Pay attention in class.

I played Doom on my laptop between classes, but jesus christ, pay attention if you're lucky enough to be getting an education.

No, you don't have to like everything.

I like sports, but if people talk about some other thing I'm supposed to be into I'm not gonna pretend.

Well, just canceled my preorder. I've been going back and forth on this for a while, but it seemed like the most rational thing to do.

Why? Because I still don't know what the hell the game is. I understand the types of missions you may embark on, but I still don't know what the story structure is going to be like. Will there be a variety of narrative-driven missions that keep you going? Or will it devolve into a loot grind where you go to a place, shoot guys, and have your ghost say something about "this happened here once."

From my time with it, I didn't see any hints of Bungie at their campaign best. Meticulously designed encounters, fun set piece moments, tactical battles, and chaotic improvisation seemed to be missing or greatly diminished. I spent more time standing behind a wall and popping a stationary enemy to watch their health bar go down, whereas the only real bullet sponges in Halo were Hunters or the handful of bosses in Halo 2 (and even those would keep you on the move). Even a Scarab boss battle would give you dozens of approaches. A Devil Walker would just sort of... sit there.

I hope the reviews are super positive and that it's an adventure worth embarking on. But for now, I can wait a couple weeks to hear the consensus. Hopefully at the worst, it just feels like a solid first act in a grand story.

My PS4 and Wii U get a ton of usage. This includes Blu rays on PS4 and Youtube on Wii U. I still have a last-gen backlog so all my systems are plugged in at various TV's.

Gamewise? Somehow my Vita is conquering all.
