Minecraft <3

Minecraft! Oh boy! Has it ever taken off. I remember months ago when my little brother started playing - I remember watching him play this game and thinking, wow, if I ever played this game it very well could suck a lot of time out of my life. And so... I waited to get it, and waited a little more, and a little more. Now it's even bigger than before and I couldn't wait anymore! The time to lose my free time is now.

I finally got Minecraft :D and I love every bit of it. It's exploring, crafting, and building mechanics are simple, and addictive. It's like lego on steroids.. which you can then run around in. Plus, fighting zombies, exploring dangerous caves for rare materials, what more could there be!? But there's much more, and it's only in Beta! Picking up your copy now can save you some money, you'll get to play right away, and will get the full game when it comes out! OH, did I mention multiplayer?! :)

It doesn't really have instructions, but it's pretty easy to pick up once you get into it. Just read the controls, and if you're really stuck there's a super helpful Minecraft Wiki!

Using Cartographer you can make a maps and full renders of your Minecraft world... so here's mine! :D

A couple of the things I took a screenshot of were built after i took the map render, but just click to get a bigger look!

Now take a look at this and have a laugh. Minecraft :D

Back on Track

Alright! So "The Creator" plot ended last week and we're back on track with the random goodness that is Triangle Dude. So far so good. :)

It'll probably be a while before anymore major plot lines so enjoy the stand-alone comics like the new and newer, "Those Dogs," and "Big Head."

Circular Cannibalism

A new design! Well golly gosh! It's been a while, and a Triangle Dude one to boot.

I've had a sketch of this for a month or two now and I've finally had time to get around and do it! I call it, "Circular Cannibalism," though, I'm not really sure if they actually are trying to eat each other or are rather just escaping from the other's mouth. A bit of both perhaps.

Anywho, click for a larger look and Click Here to take a look at it in Shop Vorgus.

Music of 2010

So another year is over... whew. So here's a neat look at some music that's entered my head through my ears! I like doing this every year, and this year turns out to be year #3 of doing it.

I use to keep track of all my listening habits, and then I use Last Graph to make this nifty chart for my eyes to look over.

Click on it to see it biggerish!

From the looks of my chart this year some big names were:
Neon Indian,
31 Knots,
Sunset Rubdown,
of Montreal,
Modest Mouse,
Sleigh Bells,
Wolf Parade,
Matt & Kim, and
You Say Party, We Say Die

Hiatus over! :D

Guess what?! I bet you guessed right because what I wanted you to guess was written in the title of this post...

The hiatus is over! Kaput!! Good riddance to this hiatus business I say.

Back to Tuesdays and Fridays! The whole site has been redesigned as well and the front page takes you right to the action!

Xmas Videogames!

Xmas 2010 was pretty great! I got some vidja games! Now I need to find the time to play them all!

I got Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii. The original ones on the SNES were amazing and a big part of my childhood so playing this game was a must. I must say Retro did a great job on the game - it doesn't disappoint in the slightest! A lot of it really takes me back, but they've also done a great job making it look good and introducing some new ideas and mechanics - it's definitely worth a look.

I also got Kirby's Epic Yarn! I haven't had too much time to play this one yet, but the intro was pretty funny and fun and light and you know, good ole' Kirby. The graphics are interesting and look pretty darn good for yarn! I've only just begun so I can't attest to it's gameplay, but it seems like it'll shape up to be pretty fun!

On the DS side of things I got Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis. I've never played the first one, but have always wondered what the game is like. I've heard it's pretty good and it looks like a game I like because of it's puzzlin' nature. I definitely wasn't expecting this game, but I'm really looking forward to playing it!

Plants vs. Zombies! I love this game, and the edition I got came with a little zombie figurine! I promptly constructed the cardboard pylon and placed it atop it's head. I'm looking forward to starting this up again, I loved it, but the Steam version I had destroyed my save file, which, honestly, isn't the first game (poor GTA IV save data... I just wanna shoot stuff and drive around!).

Plants vs. Zombies

Some other games I didn't get but want to get (once I have time gah!) are:

Golden Sun
Phantom Brave
Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes


So It's been a while yes. Hello everyone. What's been up? Stuff.

Particularly fun stuff! I got to go snow tubing for the first time a couple of days ago and was it ever a blast. We went up to Mount Seymour in North Vancouver. I've never been up to that mountain before and all I can say is that the view was magnificent. You can see so far! It's incredible.

Once you get done admiring the view you can start snow tubing! The hill is huge and you get some amazing speed going down the thing. There are "slow" signs telling when you should start dragging your feet to slow down before the end... and if you don't... well you might just fly off the ramp at the end and who knows where that goes. A couple people did go off the edge a few times, I'm sure they're fine lol

I uploaded some of the photos to my Flickr photostream, check 'em out! :D
