Scrambled Thoughts Part Two: It's Almost Spring Break Edition

Hey, Giant Bomb! I'm am here once again with another blog. I made a secret promise to update my Giant Bomb blog whenever I can, and this time I'm gonna keep that promise, god damn it! Anyway, here are some things I've been playing and things that have been going on. 
 

  • I let my girlfriend borrow Plants vs. Zombies. Before I let her play it, I played about 20 minutes of it and it reminded me of how addicting it is. I really did not play much of it at all. My girlfriend's had it for two days and she's already way further than I ever was, and I had that game on my shelf for a long time, so I feel pretty bad about that. She's gonna give it back on Friday so I can play it during Spring Break, and during Spring Break I'm heading down to Georgia to see family, so that should make for a very entertaining car ride.
  • I played Battlefield 1943 for about two minutes, and after about the 9th time of getting killed right after I spawned, I turned it off and played Wipeout HD for a bit. That game is still so fucking fun, in fact, I plan on playing that some more when I'm done writing this here blog. I love racing games and futuristic science fiction, and Wipeout is just...yeah. So good. 
  • Haven't really played Mass Effect 3 since last blog. Ah, well, I already know about the ending so I hardly give a shit about the fact that my readiness level goes down when I don't play it. It's such a lazy way to end the series, so I'm going to be equally as lazy to finish it.
  • I got a new phone! A Samsung Exhibit II to be exact. It's an Andriod phone, and it's pretty awesome! I got unlimited texts and stuffs, and it even has a decent version of Tetris on it, and it's fun to play that every now and again.  
  • Like I mentioned earlier, I'm gonna be going to Georgia for most of Spring Break. I'm kinda glad because I need a fucking break from school, but I would've liked it better if we stayed home. Ah well, can't get everything you want. 
  • I know that there's already a thread about this, but Matt Rorie left Screened. That makes me pretty sad. I'm not sure how I feel about Screened now. Seems like an empty canvas waiting to be filled now. I hate that this is happening to my favorite sites. I hate that Whiskey Media is no longer a brand. I hate it. While I am happy for the Giant Bomb, Comic Vine, and Tested, there's no doubt that Screened got the extremely short end of the stick, and it's depressing.
I hate to end my blog on a sad note, but...that's unfortunately all I really have to say for now. Hopefully the following will add come happiness to this post.

You think Screened is worse off? Anime Vice has forever been treated as if the wayward son of Whiskey Media. This whole transisition to CBS certainly hasn't helped it out much.

@loopy_101: Did Anime Vice have all of their main writers leave after the transition?

I didn't even get a spring break. I'm not going to get a summer break either. I'm off that traditional route now, and wish I stayed on.
