I haven't written a blog on here in a long time.

Hey, guys. It's been a long while since I wrote a blog on Giant Bomb. And although I do spent many hours of my week watching quick looks and listening to the Bombcast, I hardly pay any attention to the community anymore, and I can think of a few reasons why. I don't really like posting on forums that much anymore. I still do participate every now and them, but it's few and far between and there are few topics I see on the boards that I ever really care about. Plus, I just haven't been playing as much games anymore. I mean, I still play at least once a week, but I'm not as passionate about playing them as I was before. But, regardless, I felt like it was worth it to update this blog just in case anyone cares, so here's some stuff that I've been doing and things that have been happening since I last posted.

  • I bought three games recently, The Beatles: Rock Band, Jak and Daxter Collection, and Rayman Origins. I bought Beatles because it was five bucks at Gamestop, Rayman because it was 20 bucks on President's Day weekend, and Jak and Daxter because I fucking love those games. But I've hardly been playing them! I've been playing Rayman the most out of all of them, because every time I play it I get really hooked. The controls are great, the game looks amazing, and the music pretty awesome.
  • I got a girlfriend! I used to be one of those dumb kids who was like "LIFE SUX NO ONE WILL LOVE ME." I moved on from that phase a while ago, though, and started not caring about my relationship status. And then I met my girlfriend and all the jigsaws just fell into place. So, yeah. I know a majority of the people who happen to be reading this don't care, but she's awesome and means a lot to me. Plus, it's my blog, I get to write about whatever I want. She and I have been playing Heavy Rain together, and it just reminds me of how neat of a concept that game has. It's also fun to see her guessing who the killer is when I know who it is. DON'T BE AN ASSHOLE AND SPOIL IT IN THE COMMENTS.
  • I've been getting more and more into music lately, specifically Radiohead. I won't go into deep discussion about anything music related here simply because everyone's opinion about music is different and everyone has their tastes.

    ...Radiohead's fucking awesome, though.
  • School has been...school. Boring, regular old school. I guess the only thing remotely interesting is that I've been taking Behind The Wheel, which is the driving course our school offers. I've been learning quite a few things in it and it's nice to get away from school campus for a little bit and just drive.

Well, I guess that's about it. I appreciate those who are reading this, whether I know you from the past or you have no idea who I am. Either way, thanks and take care. Hit me up in the comments section if you have any questions or comments for me!

You've come a long way, and it's hard to forget about ya!

I knew the killer in Heavy Rain before I played it. I found that it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the game. I think I would've been more pissed off at the identity of the killer if it was a surprise. Mostly because it's pretty dumb. They justify it enough but it still rings a bit hollow.

same, haven't been involving myself in any real capacity for maybe more than a year

congrats by the way

I have no idea who you are, but nice to meet ya all the same. I don't even have a PS3 and the killer in Heavy Rain has been spoiled for me.

Posted by MetalGearSunny

@Video_Game_King: I love you, Video Game King. I don't know if you already knew that, but you're awesome.

Can't tell if I should click the spoiler warning or not...

Life certainly has a way of changing priorities. I know I probably should be more active on here than I'd like to be, but, you know, life.

Killer to see the good you've come through, though. :]

Posted by CaptainCody

Nice to see things are going well in your life, I was wondering where you went.

@aurahack: @CaptainCody: Thanks, guys!

How could you not know who he is? His name is Metal Gear Sunny and he has a retarded voice... wooo =P 
 
Good to read one of your blogs again, though, and glad to read things go well for ya.  
And no, you don't know me. I'm just someone that read a few of your blogs and been around the site awhile. I don't actually know anyone here... except my sister who posts on here occasionally too. =)

Wait, where the hell did that come from? Did you meet her personally, or are there pics in this thread that I seem to have missed entirely? Shit. Turns out it was the latter. Take a lesson from my stupidity. I'm not sure what lesson, but take one from it.

Her profile that I linked in the original post.

Thanks, ajamafalous. :)

@TheKittenMaster: If you haven't clicked it, you might as well, because there aren't really any spoilers in it (that's Video_Game_King for you, really). By the way, not to sound creepy or anything, but you're pretty cute; Sunny definitely found a keeper here :) Oh, and welcome to GiantBomb!

Posted by TheKittenMaster

Yeah, Ryan kinda told me. XD Thanks for the compliment and warm welcome. :3

Edited by habster3

@TheKittenMaster: You're welcome :) Any friend/girlfriend of Sunny's is a friend of mine, really. And I like to be nice to people because I decided to try it out more because I figured it would help with girls (it didn't, but whatever)

Posted by Hizang

This isn't Twitter. The fact that I've an account here should be proof enough of that.
