Oh man, Saturday at the convention is always a busy day, and this was no exception. I had several interviews scheduled this day (head over here if you want to listen to them), and made as many panels as I could manage while leaving time to eat, look at costumes, and check out the dealers room. It’s a big day, so let’s get started.Read More
Today marks a sad day in history. At the age of 95 Stan Lee has passed away. This morning he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead according to TMZ.
Stan Lee was a man that changed the lives of many people, and will continue to affect the world long after his passing. His work on Thor, the X-Men, Hulk and Iron Man with Jack Kirby, or Doctor Strange and Spider-Man with Steve Ditko will be long remembered cementing him in history.
Marvel and Disney both have sites up exonerating the man that made Marvel. And while his career was not free of controversy, I think it is safe to say that all fans of Marvel will mourn his loss today.
Election season, and by extension my major volunteering commitment, is over; my life can return to a degree of normality. I’m at DakuCon this weekend, but you can look for coverage of that in other posts here at The Gameslave. For this post, let’s concentrate on the fun that I was able to have this week.Read More
Hello anime fans! Over the next few days I'll be posting some discussion of what I did and what I saw at NDK 2018, day by day. This is going up a lot later than originally planned due to having a busy personal life and, simply, wanting to spend my few hours outside of work or volunteering having fun for me. But here it is now, discussion about what I did during Day 1 of NDK this year.Read More
I’ve had a somewhat busy week: full-time training at work and some last minute volunteering to help with elections. There was also that holiday in the middle of the week which is the reason that I currently have a house full of candy. But, let’s get on with it and talk about the more geeky things that I did this week.Read More
Alright, I past one more week of my travel for the year. It didn’t go quite as well as I had hoped due to some mechanical difficulties, but I was able to get a lot of my work done, and got an introduction to field work with my new company (two years after being hired). But, a big part of this assignment was driving from the western part of North Dakota to the eastern part, about 5 hours straight through. So, that didn’t include a lot of time to goof off. But, I did have some time to play with my gameboy at least. And that is pretty much it. I’m making some more progress in Final Fantasy Tactics A2, and have completed a few more of the plot quests even.
I’m back home this next week though, and may actually have time to enjoy myself again. Have a great week and game on!
I spent a short portion of the week away, but had some good fun. This week only had short flights, but also had relatively shorter days in the field and some time to play some video games in the evening. I’m a bit distracted from watching anime currently, mostly because I decided to give another show a chance. So, let’s talk about that a bit.Read More
Hello, and welcome to another week of The Professional Gamer. This week, I took a trip to California and spent about 8 hours driving through the National Forest in one day. On a related note, I listened to every podcast that I had saved on my player. Meaning, that I’m much closer to catching up to all of podcast backlog. So, that' makes me feel pretty good. My other fun time has been very limited, due to spending all that time driving.Read More
