A new streaming podcast!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 2:28 PM

I’m doing something new! I’m teaming up with a friend of mine who does streaming and we’re doing to play games and chat in a podcast type format.

We’ll start this Tuesday from 7-10 PM Eastern (maybe later!) at https://www.twitch.tv/maulgrim

A few notes after the break.

Another Blaugust done
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 11:51 PM

Well, if nothing else this little event got me to post again. There’s still more stuff I’d like to post about, but my days of lobbing firebombs for the sake of watching things burn was a while ago. I’m just an guy who tries to find the courage to do the things I found routine before.

A few closing thoughts to the month.

Depression is a liar
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 10:33 PM

Time to write perhaps the most personal post of the week, talking about depression. It’s not an easy topic to talk about in the first place, but when it’s affecting you and you’re all too aware of the stigmas, it can be even harder to deal with it.

But I want to say a few words. We’ll see how long my courage holds out.

A thoughful pause
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 11:55 PM

Usually around March I post on by blog asking for feedback. I like to hear what people say and get some inspiration for what’s going on. I’ve done in March because the holidays are past and there’s not much to distract. An real “news” that isn’t a lingering hangover from the previous year is likely to be fresh about then.

Since I’ve been a little slack this year, I wanted to ask what people thought, and maybe get some ideas about what would be interesting to write about for the rest of the month.

Old year bad, new year good
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 1:58 PM

I guess it’s time to look at the old year in review and the new year in anticipation since I remembered I have a blog!

The spirit moves me to write a little bit to keep some of you who check this site interested!

Another trip around the sun survived!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 2:38 PM

Today’s my birthday, and I’ll celebrate with a blog post!

I’ve been quiet lately. Part of it is just general negativity the last few years about many things. Some of it is disappointment in MMOs in general. Some of it is not really feeling like I have much to say that people are interested in.

But, let me go over a little bit of what’s happening in my life for those of you still reading.

Introducing: MMO dating!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 10:37 AM

Tired of logging on to eHarmony only to find out the people you message can’t pull the minimum DPS to clear A12S? Sick of posting yet another Craiglist ad looking for the love of your life to fund the lifestyle you want in game?

Do I have a deal for you! Introducing: MMO dating!

The new year, fear, and Patreon
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 4:51 PM

It’s almost the new year. Time for a bit of introspection and a different approach to life.

To not bury the lead here: I’ve started a Patreon for my creative work. Click the new banner on my site, or visit my Patreon page to support me.

Let me go into a bit more about why I’m doing this, and why this has been a hard thing for me to do.

The holidays, relationships, and MMOs

Like it or not, it’s now the holiday season. For most people, this is a glad time of year as we get together for feasts to drive away the winter darkness and chill. During this time our minds often turn to families and loved ones. We look for source of warmth to drive off the emotional chill we feel this time of year. Sometimes we find it, sometimes we don’t.

Often I like to take a closer look at things and evaluate them more in depth. Like relationships: How does our perceptions affect them, particularly in the online world? It seems that we fall into regular patterns in our relationships, conforming to society’s expectations of what we should do. But, the culture in the U.S. has a terrible time really defining relationships. Even a meaningful word “love” tend to be dangerously overloaded and fraught with peril. Let’s take a look at this, and maybe think about what it means for Socializers in games.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 9:36 PM

I hope everyone out there had a good Thanksgiving. Even if you don’t celebrate it, I hope it was a good day. And, it’s always a good time to stop and reflect on what you’re thankful for.

Let me take a moment to count my blessings.
