Starcraft 2

So I was having a discussion with a friend of mine the other day, and we both basically came to a realization, that we weren't really that into Starcraft 2.  Campaign of course was fantastic, but beyond that...its sort of meh.  Multiplayer feels like the entire goal is to become more robotic and rigid than your opponent.  Memorizing build orders and following them to the letter until you can attempt to counter your opponent just feels very repetitive.  Executing a build order flawlessly and proceeding to roll people doesn't really feel skillful...its just boring.

Yeah you can argue that micro wins the day over macro, but honestly, a poorly executed build order/macro phase will sink you way before micro.  I mean really, how much micro does an MMM ball really need?  It felt like way too much work for me, memorizing build orders and trying to instantly know what build will counter what you just scouted, etc.  Maybe some people like that type of thing, I dunno.  Not my cup of tea anyway, but I'll still probably buy the next game, if only for campaign.  What are your thoughts on the matter?

And as promised, more Pokemon comics!!

Moar Pokemon comics...because MOARRR.

Pokemon Nostalgia

Got some hilarious oldschool Pokemon related comics to share.  There's 20 something so I'll do a few at a time since its late right now anyway.

Mother F'in Gary Oak...

I was always pissed about this, Scyther was the man.

I mean...did anyone not do some variation of this at some point?

Anyway, much more for later, thanks for the comments so far guys!

First Blog

Well first of all, I suppose I should talk about why exactly this exists.  I've been shuffling around between games for weeks, without anything that actually holds my attention for very long.  Starcraft 2, TF2, League of Legends, I bounce back and forth, but there is nothing to play!

So in boredom, I decided to create this, share ideas/likes about games or other forms of entertainment, while awaiting the fall release of things like Halo: Reach.  Today is busy what with things being due for classes tomorrow, longer posts in the future to come!

Feel free to hit me up, discuss, give good ideas, anything!
