Okay so Minecraft has taken over most of my life. My Nvidia Geforce 8400 is finally not good enough to handle today's games. Or at least it was till I overclocked it. It will make do until I decide to upgrade. Now for your gaming news!

I decided to make a news topic, and just inform you guys on upcoming stuffs. The Crysis 2 demo looks amazing, and the full game is slated for release in mid-March if you wish to make your computers cry. Unfortunately, the demo is only for Xbox 360. I tried to play it, but then my xbox crapped out.

The PSP2, or NGP, is sporting a quad-core processor, and intense graphics. It's about as powerful as the PS3. A handheld, as powerful as a console? Seems like it has potential, it also got rid of the analog nub, and has micro-analog sticks.

Ummmummm, Nothing else I can think of off the top of my head, but 2011 looks like it has some pretty promising releases. Diablo 3, Crysis 2, Elder Scrolls Skyrim. Should be interesting to say the least! Comment with any games/ tech stuff you are looking forward to for this year!

More Minecraft Pixel art coming soon! I'm currently working on Crono, Lucca, Marle, Magus, Robo, and Frog from Chrono Trigger for the SNES, as well as a chocobo from the Final Fantasy games! If you'd like to see something made with pixels, leave me a link to a sprite below, and I'll do my best. On another note, I decided to embark a journey, that's gonna take 3 years. It was a scam on facebook, that actually sounded like a good idea. I'm going to take a picture of my face, every day, for three years. I will post the pictures from the week every Sunday on this blog, so it doesn't take over this blog entirely, and I'll be sure to update this, at least twice a week guise! Well, time for me to go pixelificate things, kthxbai, and Lessthanthree!

Minecraft :o

So, for the past two days, I've been introduced to minecraft. So the pixel-art began. Most of it is NES sprites, and pokemon, here is just a little bit of my work so far!

Solike, this wasn't serious yoyo time, just me messing around, so I mess up a lot, and 0:40-1:00 makes me cry a little on the inside.

On horror games/movies.

I thought I'd make a slightly longer post right here. I like to play a lot of horror games. They terrify me, and it's amazing. I remember playing FEAR back in the day, and almost screaming.Horror movies never really got to me though. I think it's the level of immersion that video games have. Regardless, here is a list of horror games that I find to be wonderfully frightening! My top five are:

5. Dead Space
I just played this game, and it has a lot of jump at you scary! It also has a unique way of bringing you in by Having no HUD, and making all displays completely in-game. It adds a great deal to the realism of the game, and draws the player in.I am excited for the second one :D

4.Doom 3
This game is a lot darker, with much more Jumpy OH MY JESUS IT'S GONNA EAT ME! moments. It leaves you with little ammo, and the monsters are powerful. However, it kinda dries out later in the game, but I'll never forget when you first get attacked by a hell knight in this game. That's the big guy in the poster btw.

This game really made me paranoid. I kept checking over my shoulder while I played it, and Alma still scares the shift out of me. I had to play this game with friends, but I couldn't bear to play it in the light. It had to be dark, with the sound turned up. The environments aren't necessarily scary in here, but that little girl is enough to make me shit brix when she lights a warehouse on fire!

2.Amnesia: The Dark Descent
THE DESCENT OF DARKNESS! Alright though, this game is terrible. You get know weapons, dropped into a situation that you have no idea what is going on. Random doors will fly open, shadows make you go insane. I'm utterly terrified to play it. But yet, it feels so right. Definitely a good substitute for a checkup on your heart. My only vocabulary while playing this is a constant, omgomgomgomgomg OH SHIT!

1. Bioshock
I have no idea why this terrifies me so much. It could be the little sisters who will cut you open and take your ADAM, or maybe the Big Daddies who will cut you apart for them. Or it could be the hordes of splicers who have been made batshit crazy over ADAM, and now try to get their hands on it wherever they can. A utopianistic society, with no boundaries, which destroyed itself, and it's underwater for god sakes! No way out.

Joe, Drummer of Against Thee Wickedly

So, My band's name is Against Thee Wickedly, and it is Me on guitars, Kevin Long as lead singer, and Joe Kennedy on the drums. This is just to show how beast Joe is on the drums. We have a lot planned for this year, and we might have a bassist soon!

Ohyay, I got one!

Alright, so this'll just be introductory I guess? My name is Michael, and I play le guitar, and I'm in choir. I also play with le yoyos, I'll post some videos on here soon! Of either guitarness, yoyofication, or something that just seems fun!
