New, new blog
Okay, Single Player Online is back on, plus I've got a new blog to replace this one called [jasonlongden(dot)ca]
Labels: site stuff
I may update this one from time to time when I need to write something not video game related, otherwise, my new blog is Single Player Offline
Labels: personal crap, site stuff, video games
For the record...
The blog's on hiatus, potentially permanently, as I decide on how to extend my online presence again.

Another link gone
Since he hasn't updated it in over a year, I'm dropping the webcomic Bugsport. Too bad, as I genuinely enjoyed it.

Yeah, it's been over a month, and nothing really to talk about it.
Well, there's my near meltdown and my attempts to keep people at arms length from me for both my own best interests as well as theirs. I'm single again, and relieved. Not out of some feeling of being freed from a ball and chain, but more that I don't have to worry about dragging someone else down with me, as it's been a rough time these past few weeks between posts.
School's going okay. Not as well as I want it to be, but my grades are still in the 80+ range. My Programming in Java class has been particularly hellish, as our lectures are generally two weeks behind our assignments, meaning that we don't actually learn how to do them until it's a couple of hours before the assignment is due. Needless to say, this has created a huge amount of stress for me, amongst all the other sources of stress I've had.
I've basically been hanging on by my bloodied fingernails, and slipping the entire time. That said, reading week's been good for me. Even though I should have been doing more work, I've used the time to just relax (well, when not spewing profanity at my TV and video game consoles.) I think my nervous stomach has returned, and I'm not exactly impressed with that. I've thrown up more in the past few months than I have in the past few years.
Anywho, that's the personal crap, on with a media rundown.
Watching: Escaflowne, Halo Legends, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, Pandorum, Surrogates, Gamer, Planet Hulk, Zomebieland, The Hangover, Chocolate, Mad Detective, New Police Story, Super Robot Red Baron, random anime, and random TV shows.
Listening (to): A lot of Coast to Coast AM streaming over the internet, and random MP3s while walking to class.
Reading: Textbooks, duh.
Playing: PS2- Mercenaries. 360- Fallout 3, Fable 2, Mercenaries 2, Gears of War, Halo, Brutal Legend.
And that's about that. I'm counting the days until finals are over, and I can chill for the summer (I hope.)

Well, it's a minor one, but since WotC is giving up the Star Wars license, I'm dropping the link to the game.

First post of 2010
Well, nothing really much to report on, although I want to point out my Gamercard:
As for other stuff, I really miss the three women of my life. I miss Reni. I miss Amanda. I miss Mary, and I will always miss her. She'd find the above infinitely cool, as she would find my schooling, my media consumption, and well, everything. This isn't to belittle the other two, not in the least, but that special Mary-ness is something that the world will never have again.
Also, it's a little late at this point, but I welcome Saul Mayer Biro to the world. Dina & Elliot had a little guy (well, Dina did. Elliot supplied DNA.) His middle name is named after Mary, and this makes me tear up a little every time I think of it.
The holidays haven't been good for me in years, but this year was the least painful in memory.
Anyways, that's it for the random updates. I'm wiped, and I think I'll take another nap.
