The Professional Gamer - December 15, 2018

We’re halfway through December and almost to the end of the year now. I’ve had a fairly good week in terms of finding time to enjoy myself. I was finally able to watch the end of one of my favorite animated series, and I got my fancy new laptop that can actually play games and doesn’t hang whenever I try to change tabs in Chrome. And that’s made me very happy. I also had time to finish binge-watching another new animated series and watch Crystal play Dragon Quest XI. I guess I have a lot to write about this week. Best get started.

The Professional Gamer - December 8, 2018

I’m back after another quick, and busy week of work, including a day trip down to Albuquerque. I’ve never done the out and back businessman trip before, so that was a new experience for me. I had a meeting on Tuesday night that kept me away from my house for most of the evening, then the trip to Albuquerque on Wednesday. Thursday, I spent most of my evening putting together some gift suggestions for Christmas (at my parents request, cause I’m hard to shop for). Other than that, I’ve been up to a lot of the usual stuff: watching too much YouTube videos and baking shows on Netflix. Let’s talk about it anyways.

The Professional Gamer - November 24, 2018

Hello readers! I hope you all have had a good week, and for those in the U.S., a great Thanksgiving. And if you are interested in such things, found some good deals on electronics and what-not. I’m looking for a new laptop, maybe one that can play games that are withing a few years old, rather than my current computer, which sometimes struggles to run Chrome. But that’s my own issue. Let’s talk about some geeky stuff.

The Professional Gamer - November 17, 2018

Well, this has been one of those weeks where I didn’t have a lot of time to myself. Tuesday night was spent attending a professional society meeting and Wednesday and Thursday were spent nursing a sick Crystal. And, when I had time, I worked a bit on my review post for Daku Con. But, I did have a little bit of time to enjoy myself, so let’s talk about that.

Nan Desu Kan Day 2 Discussion

Oh man, Saturday at the convention is always a busy day, and this was no exception. I had several interviews scheduled this day (head over here if you want to listen to them), and made as many panels as I could manage while leaving time to eat, look at costumes, and check out the dealers room. It’s a big day, so let’s get started.

RIP Stan Lee

Today marks a sad day in history. At the age of 95 Stan Lee has passed away. This morning he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead according to TMZ.

Stan Lee was a man that changed the lives of many people, and will continue to affect the world long after his passing. His work on Thor, the X-Men, Hulk and Iron Man with Jack Kirby, or Doctor Strange and Spider-Man with Steve Ditko will be long remembered cementing him in history.

Marvel and Disney both have sites up exonerating the man that made Marvel. And while his career was not free of controversy, I think it is safe to say that all fans of Marvel will mourn his loss today.

Daku Con

Nan Desu Kan Day 1 Discussion

Hello anime fans! Over the next few days I'll be posting some discussion of what I did and what I saw at NDK 2018, day by day. This is going up a lot later than originally planned due to having a busy personal life and, simply, wanting to spend my few hours outside of work or volunteering having fun for me. But here it is now, discussion about what I did during Day 1 of NDK this year.
