retromenaceThe name's Derek.
I enjoy video games, roleplaying, and that's about it.... most likely.
On this blog you will find mostly Defense of the Ancients, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Two Best Friends Play, and any other cool stuff that happens to come up on my dash.

Well played Riot, you had a good run. I think it’s time to hand the crown over to Steam.

I really need to decide the pros and cons of the Xbox and the Fightstick, because this is a legitimate question now.

Fightstick:

Pros-

  1. Become better at fight games
  2. Works on PS3, PC, and 360, so I won’t need to buy a new stick for a while
  3. Can be easily modded for 8 directional input
  4. Can probably be resold to my other friends who like fight games if I want

Cons-

  1. Can only really play Skullgirls because there aren’t many fight games on PC
  2. The Fightstick doesn’t work on Xbone, so no Killer Instinct (I think)
  3. I need to get a 360 anyways to have more Fight Games, because the PC Fight game market is anemic at best. So it might make more sense to get the Xbox first anyways

Xbox:

Pros-

  1. Play games with my friends/family who don’t have PC games
  2. Tons and TONS of fight games available on Xbox Live for cheep. 
  3. Halo, which is probably one of my favorite arena shooters
  4. If I wanted to be a cheap asshole I could get a Keyboard and Mouse hook-up for the 360 that would allow me to aim with mouse & keyboard vs the people using gamepads.
  5. Huge library of indie games that’re actually pretty good
  6. Actually way cheaper than PS3, in terms of initial start-up price.
  7. Free games every now and again cause I’d have Gold, so I arguably wouldn’t even need to buy games for a while.

Cons-

  1. $50(?) a year to get ads shoved in my face.
  2. While this does have more fight games than PS3, the Jojo fighting game is only on PS3
  3. Have to wait longer to use a fight stick, and as such will get trashed for far longer if I play fight games.
  4. Have to rebuild my ENTIRE game library / Achievement score since I gave my old Xbox and account to my little brother when I went away to college.

Oh jeez — as it turns out, the Fightstick I want, with a mod to change it from full-range to eight directional stick movement, is $177.19

An Xbox 360 is $170.

So with the same money from the fight stick, I actually could get an Xbox…

Decisions, decisions…

I honestly wish I had a Xbox 360 right about now.

There’s a ton of people I miss playing games with who don’t have PC’s (my brother, Kate, Jawarrior, etc).

I’d love to buy an Xbox so I could do that… but I’m currently saving for a Fight-stick, so that’s gonna be a while off. Maybe for my birthday or something…

Fired up DOTA 2 for the first time in what seems like months

I forgot what fun was like.

Couldn’t help it - when you watch “Yakuza 4” while doing other art projects, ideas like these happen. 
Best friends zaibatsu matryoshka dolls. If someone’s gonna make a real version of these, that’d be pretty cool.

Wow okay, never randomly glomp me ever.

I nearly roundhouse kicked some dude in the face because a black belt’s instincts to “somebody is holding you forceably at night where nobody else is” aren’t very friendly.
