"In Defense of Tracer's Posterior "In the Beta Feedback boards for Overwatch a user objected to one of Tracer's poses claiming that it reduced the character to a sex symbol. I disagree with the argument and take umbrage with the notion that Tracer must reflect the nature of her primary and notable characteristics at all times..."

A Thing About Knights and Merchants "Knights and Merchants was the first RTS I ever played and I recently began playing it again since it was on Steam sale. Over the course of replaying it I’ve noticed a number of unique traits about this game that I never really thought of when I first played it all those years ago. In this analysis of Knights and Merchants I will look into the game’s mechanics, paying special attention to economy and military gameplay, to understand what the game—or the developer—may intentionally or unintentionally reflect about human culture..."

Of Red Noir and Potato Cavalry      From the start of this year’s Amnesia Fortnight, I knew I would never have enough votes to pick my favorite games since so many were interesting and unique. This is to be expected of Double Fine employees whose talent and creativity and passion is so readily evident from all the amazing game development documentaries produced by Two Player Productions...

Redemption

Considering Rewriting
     "A thick fog draped the city. From the antennas of the highest skyscrapers to the cracks between stone and rubble hundreds of meters below, there was fog. Pockets of purple poison clung to the fog and saturated the air into a lavender town. Ghastly faces in the air evolved into haunting guises and formless doppelgangers existing only as silhouettes. These sylphs, always eager for a battle, were like unidentifiable ghosts that claimed this domain..."

Search and Destroy (Excerpt)      "The weapons cache was approximately one hundred metres northwest according to the GPS unit he was provided with. He knew that he had to destroy it regardless of his own fate. When he was briefed on this assignment, he did not believe the situation would turn out this way. If he made it out of this alive, perhaps he would reconsider the gravity of future assignments in memory of this one..."

The Compassionate American      "He peered through the big window onto the streets below. The dark blue shade of early morning melted away near street lights which shone like candles in the ocean. Few cars and people moved though the streets and sidewalks, appearing only as shadows in the darkness. The scent of sweet coffee slowly polluted the air and the first light of the morning spewed through the crevices of skyscrapers and churches and statues, creating shadows miles long..."

Crude Rank      "'Yes, it’s been decided upon unanimously,' she said. Her look was dry, her eyes straight. She was not lying.
     'But, Lieutenant, I’m not sure if I can lead an army. Besides, I’m just a kid,' responded Wil.
     'Perhaps, but our captain was killed in action and we need a new leader,' replied Rebeka.
     'I fail to see how I would make a good leader; I’m an idiot,' said Wil...

Avarice of the Fool      "'What’s that like?' he asked.
     "'It is whatever you want it to be like,' responded the other, 'as long as it exists.' They continued to stare at the luminous stars of night. A breeze passed by and traveled through every crevice with a cool feel.
     'How long can it exist for?' he asked with a curious tone turning towards the other.
     'It is something that can last as short as a heartbeat…or as long as the sun shines...'
Short Story
(2008)
Hoot Who?      "At the intersection of Vehr Street and Faie Avenue lay Mansion Itegart, whose owner was none other than the wealthy Jocale, best known for her numerous and valuable jewels. She hosted a ball at Mansion Itegart for her important friends, a reunion after months without communication. Personally, she invited four of her closest companions which included Viraga, Noctuo, Multus, and Recens. Viraga was Jocale’s friend from childhood, as was Recens; Noctuo was an owner of great estate and member of Parliament; Multus was a man of multiple professions. The rest of the people invited to the ball were guest from other parts of Jocale’s life, which were of less importance to her..."

A Life Well Wasted Tuesday
March 19, 2013

13:23 ET

     For whatever reason I've found the need to start writing this journal. I don't know exactly why, but it may have something to do with all the thoughts and ideas in my head that I simply can't organize or keep track of..."

Note: A Life Well Wasted has become a sporadically written-in journal in which I document my thoughts on many a topic including, but not restricted to, philosophy, education, society, art, culture, video games, eSports, technology, social institutions, private institutions, politics, music, economics, religion, life, death, writing, literature, cognition, metacognition, epistemology, language, American consumerism, and so on. I have no intentions of making it public any time soon. Title inspired by and stolen from Robert Ashley's A Life Well Wasted.
