Scatter Storming. Issue #016 “Let’s Qubit!”

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

ss016Way back when I wrote for Lusipurr.com, I “went” to E3. Somehow, miraculously, I was also in Toronto working on a gameshow for the Discovery Channel. It was called Qubit. The cover is a still taken of me when I was standing in for the host while the control room was figuring some shot out. Anyway, that show was sort of the start of my new position in my current job. And since that’s been my life this past month, I decided to make it the cover. How is it working out? Me and my attempts to make the covers for this feature relevant, I mean. Am I selling it? Anyway, let’s talk about me and my gaming brain.

Serendipity -
Mass Effect 2 Week is next week, meaning the game comes out then. Also, I have a week off of work. This pleases me. My new job doesn’t allow me to go in with no sleep so much anymore, and when I got my hands on the first Mass Effect, I played it until 6am on a regular basis. Now I can do that without worry. Excitement.

Final Fantasy V -
Originally I was going to play FFVI, but another issue with my brother (how many times has he screwed me over on Riddlethos?), and it turns out my FFVI case actually holds a disc of The Office. Great show, not helpful for gaming. But if you read this site a lot, you already knew that. I also decided to play FFV for my first JRPG Relapse title because I’d rather have a more concentrated play session with FFVI as I want to give it a fair shot. JRPG Relapse week is to compare the (potential) evolution of the genre, and I think FFV is a better choice for a snapshot.

Aaaand, Darksiders again -
While I’m excited for this week, I definitely miss Darksiders. I should beat it just before Mass Effect 2 comes out.

That’s it! I gotta play FFV before bedtime, which is soon. G’night, mother fuckers!
