Sweet Merciful Fuck Have Times Been Busy.

Wow, I've been extremely absent haven't I? Believe me, I feel like a piece of shit, so here's an update as to what the hell has been going on!

-We put together some special horror themed episodes for Retro Rampage, they were pretty damn good!

-I received a promotion, and I'm currently doing systems administration and programming, which has been taking up most of my time recently.

-I've been playing a LOT of Diablo 3. I was late to the party, but god damn it, it's a great game (don't know why it got all that hate.) There's an expansion for it coming out in March 2014. My name is Jaundice#1457, so add me if you play! Here's my Barb.

-I've also been playing CS:GO on and off. I've loved the series since the beginning, and this entry is no different. It has its times where if it were a person I'd beat the shit out of it, but that's many games these days. Classic Competitive is a great time, especially on Nuke or Inferno.

-I have a lifetime owned ventrilo server (FUCK monthly payments!) and use it often for all of my gaming habits, if we're friends on Steam/Bnet/etc., and you want to come in and say hello, shoot me a message on Twitter @theretrorampage and I'll send you the vent info.

-I haven't been writing as much, or working on GunBeam (like I fucking should be, but I'm a worthless asshole so I've been putting it off.) But hopefully after the holiday season I'll get that spark to get back into my novel and game.

-We're currently working on a big project for Retro Rampage as well as some independent film stuff, so again, time is a precious commodity that I can't seem to ever have enough of.

-I'm designing some shirts in preparation for MAGFest this coming January, and hopefully they should be on sale within a week or so on our Zazzle store. I'll have links and all that fun shit on Twitter and Facebook.

-Other than that, I'm more curious as to what you've all been up to! I feel like I haven't interacted with you guys in a while, and I feel like a terrible person because of it, so please, catch me up on the wonderful lives of my 1UP and PixlBit family!

that sounds like a lot of business, man!  That's cool you got promoted.  It's nice to get recognition for what you're doing.  

I was actually wondering about your game's state lately as I was thinking about Broken's game and the game Daftman scored.  You're doing that in Gamemaker, right?

I totally forgot that Diablo 3 was coming out for the PS4.  That is another game that I will have to remember to pick up.

Sounds like a pretty hectic life.  I know that the next month and a half will be pretty darn hectic in my life.  I just ordered a PS4, so that will probably fill any and all of my free time this holiday season.

 Diablo 3 got all the hate because it was broken on launch, has a terrible loot progression due to the poorly implemented Real Money Auction House, and required always on DRM with no offline singleplayer and no LAN mode. On console most of these issues are gone, and most will be gone on PC with the new expansion.

 If you want to play CS:GO with me at some point let me know.

I'm actually happy you've kept busy,Ryan. Seems like you're wrapped up in some good times! Still, thanks for dropping in. I missed you,bro!

Heheh..I know the feeling sorta..(Though I am quite an abnormal person with hermit tendencies...)

I've been busy, too! I finally found some work, and have been making money to get back on my feet. I just started a second part time job. =D

For gaming, I just finished Dragon Age Origins in preparation for DA3. I'm starting Final Fantasy 13-2 again to catch up on the story for Lightning Returns in February as well. After that, I'll be going to DA 2 to finish up my saves. I figure after LR, it may be time for the next Super Smash Bros. heh

Been a while, nice to see you've been good and really busy. I need to ask you something on twitter at some point since it has to do with a project I'm working on and I don't want to talk about all the details here.
