Small update.

My father's death is having more effect on me than I thought. Sorry for a second week of nothing, but right now I have nothing I can give you.

My father is dead.

Sorry, I just have nothing in me to post this week. I don't know if I will have much to say next week either. I need to deal with this, and there is nothing funny about it.

Worst Things in Video Games.

Video games are something of a passion of mine. As an insomniac they have been a very good friend to me over the years. However, there are things that happen in them that get me a bit upset. Some are design choices, some are cliches, some are just trends in the industry.

5. Fanboys. Not unique to video games by any means. Still, they make everything just a little worse.

4. Cliffhanger endings. Don't assume your game is good enough for sequel.

3. Celebrity voice actors. Wow, 3 minutes of dialog from a famed actor, that was so worth the money. Worse when you can see corners were cut other places to pay for it.

2. DLC. The idea is nice. New content, also nice. However, after a few years, you sometimes can't get it anymore. Recently, I got the urge to play some Fallout 3. I reinstall it, patch it, go to get re-download the DLC I paid good money for, and there is no longer a way to download it. Game For Window Live, always looking for new ways to screw over consumers. I miss when you could buy expansion packs on disks.

1. Forced stealth sections in games that aren't designed around stealth. Nothing brings the flow of a game to a halt faster. Your playing, enjoying it, and now here is a part where everything you have learned up to this point is taken away. Stealth only works if the whole game is about it, and the engine the game uses was meant for it.

10 worst things that happened in 2014

Everyone out there is making list of hopes for the new year. Seems a little to upbeat. So here are 10 predictions of the worst things that will happen in 2014.

10. Bubonic plague comes back with a vengeance. It becomes air born, and cuts the world population down to only a third of its current size.

9. Canada as a whole catches fire. Canadians everywhere are to polite to say anything about it. French Canada finally successfully seceded in the aftermath.

8. Kim Kardashian commits suicide by an explosive device strapped to her chest. She takes her entire family and Kanye West with her. This is seen as a tragedy by plastic surgeons and their accounts.

7. The end of the human race becomes more likely as sex-bots come on the market. Men everywhere stop giving a shit, and birth rates plummet.

6. The McRib is retired... FOREVER!!!

5. Global warming starts to take hold, only to be halted by the nuclear winter caused by North Korea. It works out for the best, as North Korea only hit themselves when they launched.

4. Justin Bieber found dead from severe rectal trauma in mid August. Alright, most people saw this one coming.  Yes, this happened at a brothel.

3. "300: Rise of an Empire" was released to theaters.

2. New Orleans gets flooded again. Seems like we just finished the clean up form the last time too.

1. A zombie plague breaks out in the Vatican in early March. No one can really tell much of a difference. Still, it does stink up the place.
