I remember when Sessler was on a show with Leo Laporte on TechTV. Like they talked about computer parts and building gaming PCs...on TV. So good.

Just wasted a bunch of time trying to get the crap to go to Whimsyshire in Diablo 3... what a pain in the ass... I don't have the patience for this crap.

Yeah, and it's not like you get the crazy exp or drops like you did in the cow level in d2. Very low enemy density, which is killer. It's pretty funny, though.

The matchmaking in Titanfall has pretty much made it unplayable. Yesterday I was one a team where I was the only multi-generation guy and the other team was all generation 4+.

So after complaining about it last night, I pretty much got the remaining 2 items for the staff without too much trouble earlier. Took 3 attempts to get the gemstone in act 3 (first time it had the wrong cave, second time the enemy didn't appear... though I got a legendary item I was able to equip, so no loss there) and Izual dropped the plans on the first try this time.

PC had a Beta matchmaking system that sort of got things better...haven't tried it lately. I find the game to be stale, unfortunately.

State of Decay is incredible. Its what I've wanted in a zombie game. I understand how it would be boring to a lot of people though.

I used to watch Call For Help with my Dad when I was like, 14. We had a 28.8kbps modem and managed to break our computer and have to reimage it at least once a month.

I played the open Phase 2 beta quite a bit this weekend, which ended last night at 4 AM. I could only make it until 2:30.

Although a big part of it is nostalgia, I'm sure, I really enjoyed the game. I found it to be somewhere in between WoW and Skyrim in many respects: combat/game mechanics are something more than Skyrim (a plus) but something less than WoW (a minus but when I just have to learn to live with now that my days of being able to play WoW are long gone); story/lore/etc. is something less than Skyrim but more than WoW. The game is overall simpler than WoW, but I need that. And I really want something that is a bit more involved than Skyrim from a combat/mechanics standpoint.

I made it to level 19 as a pugilist and level 10 as a leatherworker when I finally crashed last night.

If anybody was interested in picking up an XB1 this might be the week. Target has the Titanfall bundle for $449.99 with a free 12 Month Xbox Live Card. That is $50 cheaper than MSRP plus you get the digital download of Titanfall plus the free $60 Xbox Live card.

That XBone bundle is also being offered with Forza 5 if Titanfall isn't your cup of tea.

As part of making a documentary, a project funded by Microsoft is going to dig up the landfill that is supposedly the resting place for millions of unsold E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial Atari cartridges:

Have fun with that, it was backfilled with concrete from what I understand. Atari made more carts than they had consoles in production hoping it would be a system seller. Derp.

Downloaded RBI baseball for XBLA and its pretty much exactly what I hoped for. Hittig is difficult so far but i think i just have to get the timing down...all singles. I may get it for ios too.

I guess I should feel privileged to have played E.T. on an actual Atari 2600. That game sucked...Pitfall, Empire Strikes Back, and Defender were the bomb though.

Played through act 2 of Nightmare with my barbarian in D3... The amount and quality of legendary items that I found was ridiculous. My stats skyrocketed as seemingly every time I fought a yellow enemy I found something better than the last.
