The Ugly Duckling Experience

Wow, it's been awhile! I may be going back and removing my old posts here in the interest of reclaiming it as a personal blog space. A lot of my views have changed significantly since they were written! I wrote up a response to a question someone asked about how experiences change for a person who goes through the "Ugly Duckling" scenario, and figured I would share it here in order to reach a wider audience.

The Spirit of Mythic

As some of you may know, I'm a part of an online community revolving around the hardest possible settings in the Halo games, what we fans have coined "Mythic" difficulty. Recently, there has been some debate about how we define Mythic, especially because of the newest Halo game having a very different pallet of skulls* than the previous games. This entry is an examination of the history of Mythic with an aim towards helping to define where its future is headed.

Capture the Flag

So, I like to write sometimes, and I don't just mean blog posts. A while ago, I wrote a short story set in the Halo 3 multiplayer universe. Technically, yeah it's fanfiction, but you're not going to find some crazy mashup of various well-known characters from multiple universes, nor any "classy" material featuring tentacles. What you will find (I hope!) is an entertaining glimpse into the lives of our multiplayer avatars. If interest is high enough, I may follow up with additional Halo stories.

Videogame Violence.

It's been a hot topic for awhile now, and the media are still featuring anti-gaming messages whenever the subject is brought up. Here's the truth.

Bread Kills

I did not come up with this myself. I no longer have the original link, but I make no claim for credit.

Adam Vs. Archie

After much reflection, I've come to a conclusion on some internal issues I've been dealing with. This is an explanation of those issues, as I have come to interpret them.

I, Gamer.

Another recycled facebook note today, my time is pretty limited right now. Plus, most of my notes would be more at home here. I have modified this slightly from the original, as there were some points I missed before.
