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.

The Professional Gamer - November 2, 2018

I’ve had a somewhat busy week: full-time training at work and some last minute volunteering to help with elections. There was also that holiday in the middle of the week which is the reason that I currently have a house full of candy. But, let’s get on with it and talk about the more geeky things that I did this week.

The Professional Gamer - October 26, 2018

Alright, I past one more week of my travel for the year. It didn’t go quite as well as I had hoped due to some mechanical difficulties, but I was able to get a lot of my work done, and got an introduction to field work with my new company (two years after being hired). But, a big part of this assignment was driving from the western part of North Dakota to the eastern part, about 5 hours straight through. So, that didn’t include a lot of time to goof off. But, I did have some time to play with my gameboy at least. And that is pretty much it. I’m making some more progress in Final Fantasy Tactics A2, and have completed a few more of the plot quests even.

I’m back home this next week though, and may actually have time to enjoy myself again. Have a great week and game on!

The Professional Gamer - October 19, 2018

I spent a short portion of the week away, but had some good fun. This week only had short flights, but also had relatively shorter days in the field and some time to play some video games in the evening. I’m a bit distracted from watching anime currently, mostly because I decided to give another show a chance. So, let’s talk about that a bit.
