Steam Summer Sale

Steam Summer Sale

Yet another thing I Love! Saving cash on video games…and Steam is awesome for that in general, but their Summer Sale is on another level. They have All kinda of games for crazy discounts…like 75%, 80% off, etc;. Like I said, they have all different kinds of games on sale. Indie games and packs, Arcade style games, and “Triple A” titles too. There is also a section where you can vote on which game you want to be on sale next. That happens every 8 hours or so. Then there are even more limited time sales under that. I’m not sure of the timing of those sales, but they seem to range from 2-6 hours each. That can’t be right though, so please correct me.

If you found this site and told me you’ve never heard of Steam or their Summer Sale I wouldn’t believe you…so hopefully you’ve checked everything out for yourself already. -What did you get?

I only bought a few games so far, but it’s kind of exciting to find out what’s on sale next. What I did get was Raymam Origins and Payday. I was super happy when I saw both of them on sale. I have Rayman on a list of game I want…I was just waiting for a good sale. Payday has been in the back of my head since it’s release. I just couldn’t pay full price for something I really had no idea about. I just keep seeing better things about it, so again…I was just waiting for a good sale. Of course, the Steam Summer Sale comes through in the clutch.

I also got the 2K Strategy Pack from Amazon. It contains Civilization 5 Game of the Year Edition, which includes all but 2 of the DLCs. The pack also came with Civilization 4 Complete (All of the DLC) and a game called Stronghold which I’ve never heard of and still haven’t installed.

There are also almost always great deals on Amazon too, but for me they seem harder to find and I’m usually just following a link when I do find them.

So yeah, what games have you gotten on sale recently? And from where? -What sales am I missing?

Do They All Need A Proper Title?

Do They All Need A Proper Title?

Nothing crazy has been goin on…I just felt like checkin in. I’ve been getting kinda tired of Diablo 3 over the past week or so, and at the same time I’ve been thinking about playing other games. Specifically World of Warcraft and the “new” expansion for Civilization V, Gods & Kings. I have a feeling I’ll be playing WoW again pretty soon, but not yet. Instead, I went with Gods & Kings. I’m Super-cheap, so I got it from GreenManGaming for about $22.50.

I played for about 4 hours last night. I started with the demo. Played that for about 15 mins before dinner, knowing that if I liked it I would download it while I’m eating…which happened. All the game needed was that 15 mins to suck me right back in. It’s still a little weird not being able to stack units…it feels more odd for the reason that I’ve never really been a militaristic player and stacking just seems like something that you should be able to do. I’m almost at Theology so I’ll get to see how religion works out later tonight.

Before I get into Civ 5 I’m gonna squeeze in an hour or 2 of Diablo 3. Not sure which character yet though. Maybe I’ll put some time on the Barbarian actually. He’s like level 25 and is about to start Act 3…my favorite Act of the game, by far. I just like the wintery world and the huge packs of mobs. Yeah, I think that’s what’s gonna happen.

You can always try to hit me up on Twitter if you ever wanna play. – @CtrldLoonacy

Things I Love

Things I Love

I love happy people. I love my animals, or yours…or just that squirrel over there. I love the KFC Bowl…with extra cheese. I love where I usually eat lunch, and the people that are there. I love security…and peace. And peace and quiet. I love Crystal Light…lately their Fruit Punch. I love corn dogs. What?!? I love marijuana…and smoking it in blunts. I love the idea of things like DMT and medicinal mushrooms, pot, etc;. I love my computer, probably literally. I love technology and electronics and medical research…very literally. I love the internet, but not always what it breeds. I love podcasts. I love video games, and gaming, and the people that create and play and appreciate them, and the entire culture around the idea of them. I don’t really like run on sentences. I love credit cards. I love Netflix and the idea of having everything “On Demand”. I used to love That 70′s Show, but that was a long time ago. I Do still love Big Brother though. I love torrents. I love having this site and being able to put Anything I want to on it. And yes, I love my mommy.

It’s been a few months…

…and I’ve felt like adding to this for a while now. Nothing specific really. Mostly just rants and my thoughts and ideas about Diablo 3. -The game that’s been taking up most of my time lately. I almost forgot how to do this. I’ll try to get the colors right n all.


But what to write about? I did some thinking, and some looking around the site…and I’ve definitely come to a conclusion. Fucking Spammers! I’ve also decided that topic deserves it’s own thread, which can be found “Here”. So what else can I talk about in This post? Well, I thought of something else just now that I will also make an entire post for. “Gaming: Where and What?”


Seems like this post just ended up being a little kick-starter to get my ass in gear. Didn’t need much, I guess. I just hope I can keep up.


Those post will be coming within the night. -Thanks for reading…and keep checkin back.

WordPress Isn’t What I Want

Feb 25 – 1:00pm – I’m at my house and have WordPress opened but I’m watching Photoshop and Dreamweaver tutorials, knowing that…

WordPress Isn’t What I Want

      Sure, with WordPress it’s super easy to use and it takes no time at all to get a blog post up, but that’s where it ends for me. No matter what templates I find…they all just seem kind the same. I know I’m not gonna create some amazing site in a week…but I will have created it and it will be what I want. Kinda. I just want it to look and feel mine and I’m not getting that at all with WordPress. Every site that is based around WordPress seems the same to me and it sucks. That’s not what I want. I want my own custom background, in my own colors, with my own gradient, with my own fonts & pictures all over the place. I want the text to be exactly where I want it to be…again, I just want it to be mine.

      A big part of this too is that I Really want to learn how to use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Dreamweaver. Shit…I just got to relating this to school. When I was in college I didn’t really want to be there, so I didn’t really take anything away from it. Now I want to learn, I just don’t really have a teacher. I know I would absorb the shit out of all the information…I just don’t have the classroom.

      The hardest part sometimes is not knowing exactly what I want to do…or rather not knowing how to word it right so I can search for and learn about it. So I guess I do have the classroom, being Google, YouTube, etc; I just don’t know what courses to take…sometimes. -Get what I’m sayin? I tend to get way ahead of myself too, as far as trying to learn these programs. I get an idea for something I’d like to do but have no clue how to actually make it happen…then I’ll start researching it. When that happens I just end up wasting time because the info, techniques, etc; are way too advanced for me right now. Like everything else…I feel like I’ve spent so many hours doing “research” but have spent so little time actually putting the stuff into practice.

      Right now I’m gonna open up Photoshop and make a background, some kind of temporary header, and navigation menus. Of course, after that I’m gonna have to get those “pictures” into Dreamweaver and make it all into a working site. -And yeah, I’ll be watching a bunch of different tutorials from a bunch of different people/places while I’m doing all of this. If you have any easy to follow video tutorials please let me know by Emailing Me or leaving a comment.

      This is one of those things where I’m getting way ahead of myself, but in the end I have a pretty good idea of what I want my home page to look like. Or more specifically, most of the content I want on it. The thing is, I don’t know how to get it done. What I want to do is: I want to be able to add content to a random page and the have it update on the main index.html in it’s own section. There will be a few different sections, and inside each section will be a certain number of the most recent “posts” that belong in that section/category. Very similar to what WordPress does actually, but I want more than just one long list of blog posts. Plus, again, for some reason I’m really trying to get away from WordPress. If I can just get that {grab a bit of content from here47.html and put it [here] on the homepage} functionality, and be able to do it multiple times from multiple places…then I’d be golden. I’d be so much more confident in what I’m doing. -Just Knowing that my site Can be what I want it to be will be a great feeling.

Procrastination Sucks

Feb 20 – 12:20pm – At my house listening to podcasts.


Procrastination Sucks


      I hate it! It’s like I’m afraid to get into a project because I know how wrapped up into it I’ll get. It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about playing a game, modding my computer, working on this site…whatever it is…I always end up leaving myself so little time that shit rarely gets done. If I do end up getting into something…that thing is usually doing so much research about the actually project that I end up being so tired I just go to sleep. On the rare occasion I actually end up doing the thing I wanted to…I either only spend an hour or two on it and feel like it was just a tease or I can’t get the job finished, OR, after doing many hours of “research” on the subject I’ll end up spending another 8ish hours doing what I want to. -That’s where the problem is. I know that’s exactly what’s gonna happen…and it ends up sucking, and fucking up whatever schedule I have.

Be Ready! Shit Is Starting To Happen

Feb 19 – 10:00pm – I’m sitting in the McDonald’s parking lot eating some McBites…writing this:


Be Ready…Shit’s Starting To Happen


      Be ready, bitches! No, this isn’t a bar, so I don’t expect you to Be Ready to fuck. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then just click the link and learn something, stupid. What this is is, so I do expect you to be ready to laugh, learn, talk shit, and share info, comments, and anything else you want about whatever you’re reading or whatever is on your mind atm.


      The site is finally “up and running”, but of course it isn’t exactly what I want it to be…at all. Because of that, I think tonight I’m gonna start learning how to edit the CSS (style sheets?). -Maybe figure out how to make a new header, or nav bar, or something like that. If you can’t tell, I’m still not exactly sure what I’m doing or even talking about…so wish me luck…and teach me something if you can. If I’m obviously doing something wrong, or could be doing “it” better or more efficiently when I do start getting things done Please Let Me Know. Even if you have a useful link you know I can learn something from…share it! You can all help to make this place Amazing, and your help n info would be So much appreciated.

-Thanks Everybody!

And have fun while you’re here.

I’m new here.

     Hey, how’s it goin’ everybody? This is just a bs little post to check things out. It’ll prolly only be up for 24 hrs or so, so get your screen-shots of the site on day one in now…they might be worth something when this place blows the fuck up.

      Check back often tho, bc now that this place is semi- up and running…I’ll be updating stuff all the time. -Not just blog posts and content like that, but as I learn how to, I’ll be updating the “look and feel” of the site with Dreamweaver. -I’m all excited about that, I can’t even lie. So yeah, come back soon because there is Plenty more on the way.
