Back from camping.

Do what the one thing I missed most while I was gone was?
My family?
A warm bed?
No. Deppressingly enough, it was my computer. This has really put things into perspective for me as I didn't realise I was quite this sad.
After realising this, I have decided to try to retain at lease a small part of my life and use my computer for, at the most, one hour a day, replacing my 'Computer time,' with more physical activities.

What do you guys think? Can you relate and, if so, what do you do to spend less time in front of the computer?

Feeling lazy and hungover today, so I'll make a little post.

Terraria. This is a game that I have recently become addicted to and I don't even mind that I'm addicted because it's awesome.
Basically, it's a 2D-minecraft-style-fantasy-adventure-RPG. Awesome, yes? You earn money by defeating enemies and traversing large cave systems, finding loot and more monsters on the way. You can spend this money after getting people to live in the town that you create with wood/stone/etc that you need to collect.

 This game just seems to be limitless and I'd strongly suggest you buy it as it's also pretty cheap on steam.

Now my mind's gone blank, so I'll leave you with a trailer.

Peace out..

Video games are better in 2d.

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles is my favourite video gameever, end of story.
The way Sega has been going with recent Sonic games, however, just makes me sad. The last good sonic game Sega made was Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. Although many people say it was awful due to poor camera controls and slow speed, I still loved it.

Sonic Generations. I played the demo and, to tell the truth, was very dissapointed. Sega seems to insist on going back to its roots and creating games that are two similar to the original Megadrive/Genesis games. Why?!
Sure, the old games were better than the new ones, but that doesn't mean you have to re-create them almost exactly! I was very optimistic about Sonic 4 - Part 1 but, once again, was sorely dissapointed. Too many re-used enemies. Too many re-used bosses. Too many re-used enviroments.
C'mon, Sega! I know you know how to make original enemies and levels!

I don't want you to continue raping my childhood!

Welcome, I suppose.

I have a lot of trouble with confidence and speaking.
I guess I'm using this blog to boost my writing skill and vocabulary.

I may post some of my stories or poetry (Good grief...) and use this as a diary of sorts.
Please be kind with your comments and such.
