Wherein many many people are killed, and screenshots are taken. If you haven’t read the post below this, do so now, then come back. So, I’m still fighting a lot of Germans. But first, random screenshots. Here’s Massilia, the biggest city in southern Gaul. It’s currently almost being attacked by barbarians, except I kicked their […]

So I’d love to post some RTW screens for you all, since I just fought a most triumphant battle with the Germans, but since printscreen apparently isn’t doing screenshots these days, that’ll just need to wait. Meanwhile, let’s talk some more about the game I’m currently playing as the Julii. The scene is just outside […]

So I’m holding, in my hands, right at this very moment, Rome: Total War. The goodness of this can perhaps be summed up by this Megatokyo strip, and let me say again that there IS a Megatokyo for everything in this life. Now, before I go off to install RTW, let me point out two […]

Or minimum wage and awesome homecooked meals, as the case may be. For those of you wondering how my weekend went, it was sort of like this. Friday and Saturday, there was much gaming, and it was good. Sunday, I rolled out of bed, and Cole and I went to work ripping up our front […]

Just for Regina: Anyway. It’s picture day. I came home tonight with Megatokyo Volume 1 and Volume 2, but I won’t give you pictures. And they’re both really cool, even if I’ve already read the comics online. But since I’m the only Megatokyo reader in the audience, you probably don’t care. Fortunately, I have squirrel […]

Well, I thought it was a cool slogan, anyway. So hrm. I don’t think you all really want to hear about how Whir and I shot each other a lot at BF1942, though I ought to point out that the Italian engineer kit gets a bayonet on the end of their rifle, and that’s way […]

Strip title courtesy, as always, of Megatokyo. So the moral for today is to remember a simple lesson. No matter how good of an idea it may seem at the time, accidentally biting yourself in the lip, leaving a nice open wound, is not a good idea. The reasoning behind this is simple: Dinner that […]

We have, on the one hand, a particularly annoying start to the day, wherein I not only sleep for 10 hours randomly, thus screwing my early start to the day where I was going to do last night’s work I didn’t do last night because I was exhausted, I then get in a fight with […]

So, while I got what turned out to be the totally wrong router today, I also picked up U2′s Slane Castle DVD. This, given my level of U2 fanaticism, might be thought of as a Good Thing, and you’d be right. Because it’s good. But before I get into the details of why it’s good, […]

As was so aptly pointed out by Laurent in a comment to the last post, I need to actually, you know, reply to my email once every so often. I’ve been pretty lax about it lately. Sorry. I’ll see what I can’t do to correct that. In a more general updatish type sense, I’d love […]
