Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

UghRochester is back online (rant)
Posted on Monday, October 24 2011 @ 11:27:40 Eastern

It all began one day when I was told my mother, step-dad, and younger brother were moving. I already live three miles away from work. Where they were moving to, my father would no longer be able to take me to work, unless I give him more gas money than usual. You don’t have to be a moron to know how expensive gas is nowadays. I had to come up with an idea fast. There were many options, but I narrowed it down to one. It was time to move in with my father. He has no internet or even cable.

So having no internet and cable doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. They’re just simply entertainment and I could live without them. In fact, I have plenty of games for my Xbox 360 to help me not be bored. Many I haven’t finished the main story/season and some I haven’t even played. Poor Alan Wake is still wrapped in cellophane. Everyone has been telling me, “Howard, get Alan Wake out of the cellophane now!” GR’s danielrbischoff even told me to get Alan Wake out of the cellophane. I’ve been looking through my stack of games and to my amazement, many of the games I own all have a short span for single playing. Most of them are online. It irritated me, because I missed out on so much online. Playing with myself (giggity) was getting boring. Realizing this, I just had to get internet back.

My social life sucks. Is it, because I only complement women when they deserve it? Maybe or is it due to the fact I speak before I think and therefore giving everyone the most honest answers? Truth hurts sometimes, but at least I’m not someone acting like someone else just to get a piece of ass. Anyhow, my social life sucks IRL. I used to be a kid that was all shy and nervous. That was until I worked at McDonald’s. Somehow, I gained the confidence to interact with the opposite sex. This doesn’t mean my social life got better. It meant I was going to get slapped much more.

Now that I have online again, I can social with many people around the world. Using the internets gives you the opportunity to be nosy. Sitting there at my desk, I can switch open to a tab and see what’s going on around the world with a simple click of the mouse. Looking at my social networking feed, I can see what’s going on in the video game industry or see if any of my friends are pregnant. The endless possibility of using the internet is in my own hands again. Even though my social life sucks IRL, My social life doesn’t suck on Xbox LIVE. Interacting with other gamers is way better than playing with yourself. If games didn’t have online features, then perhaps they would have a longer and better story. L.A. Noire is one of the games that were great just for its single playing. I’m currently playing Batman: Arkham City and enjoying its single playing. Never felt much like The Batman when playing both Arkham Asylum and Arkham

So, I’m back online. I’m still the same UghRochester that few still love. The only difference is I can now be much happier and much satisfied with my gaming. What will happen now is a mystery.
