Quote of the Moment

How all occasions do inform against me,
And spur my dull revenge! What is a man,
If his chief good and market of his time
Be but to sleep and feed? a beast, no more.
Sure, he that made us with such large discourse,
Looking before and after, gave us not
That capability and god-like reason
To fust in us unused. Now, whether it be
Bestial oblivion, or some craven scruple
Of thinking too precisely on the event,
A thought which, quarter'd, hath but one part wisdom
And ever three parts coward, I do not know
Why yet I live to say 'This thing's to do;'
Sith I have cause and will and strength and means
To do't. Examples gross as earth exhort me:
Witness this army of such mass and charge
Led by a delicate and tender prince,
Whose spirit with divine ambition puff'd
Makes mouths at the invisible event,
Exposing what is mortal and unsure
To all that fortune, death and danger dare,
Even for an egg-shell. Rightly to be great
Is not to stir without great argument,
But greatly to find quarrel in a straw
When honour's at the stake. How stand I then,
That have a father kill'd, a mother stain'd,
Excitements of my reason and my blood,
And let all sleep? while, to my shame, I see
The imminent death of twenty thousand men,
That, for a fantasy and trick of fame,
Go to their graves like beds, fight for a plot
Whereon the numbers cannot try the cause,
Which is not tomb enough and continent
To hide the slain? O, from this time forth,
My thoughts be bloody, or be nothing worth!

- William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act IV Scene IV

Recent Updates

One new update for the front page, with the completion of the Engi A Cruiser report from FTL. I'll mention again that the Civ4 AI Survivor competition continues each weekend, with Game Three upcoming for this Saturday. We had well over 100 people watching on Livestream for the last one, and it was a lot of fun. Parkin even wrote up a short summary of the previous game for anyone who doesn't want to watch the full thing. Hope to see some of you again this weekend!

With a lot of days off work this week, I was able to do some major website cleaning up. First of all, we're off and rolling on Season Two of Civ4 AI Survivor. That link has all of the pertinent details and scheduling information, so if you want to join in this year's version of the game, go check it out! Next up is another FTL report for the Mantis B Cruiser, a run which featured an exciting ending flagship duel. Of course I've already gone and won with another ship on stream since this was posted, which means more FTl writing on the to-do list.

The rest of these links are mostly overdue updates collecting information about past Livestreaming ventures. Under the Final Fantasy page, I've added short reports about the Solo Monk Revisited for Final Fantasy 5 and the Four Light Yordles for the original Final Fantasy. In similar fashion, I also added a page for the Silicoids game that I did for Master of Orion. These were games played out on stream during the past year, and I've collected all of the recordings here for the curious. They have to be easier to find on my website than digging through archived broadcasts over at Twitch. Finally, I did an overdue update to The Back Page with personal information about my current job status. I'm not taking classes or teaching classes for the first time in... pretty much ever, and it was time to reflect that.

Still on the upcoming list of things to add: the Dragon writeup for Rogue Legacy (completed on stream now), and more FTL reports as I complete them.

The report for the Mantis A Cruiser from FTL is now live on the website. Scheduling notice: I'll be traveling for work the rest of this week, which means no Livestreaming until February. This is the first time that anyone has ever paid me for travel, and it's pretty nice. I don't miss being a penniless academic one bit!

I finally had the time to type up the successful run of the Zoltan C Cruiser from FTL, a ship that had bedeviled me for many weeks. The winning voyage took place on New Year's Day, but this weekend was the first opportunity that I had to do the full writeup. Now that I'm working on a full time basis, I'm afraid that I have less time available for Livestreaming and working on this website. However, I have no plans to stop completely! Let's talk scheduling then. I have every other Friday off work (starting January 23), so those are likely days for some kind of streaming activity. I'm also thinking about trying to do some kind of stream on Thursday evenings, along with the weekly Diablo 2 Elemental Strike Team stream on Tuesday nights. That would create a streaming schedule of Tuesday and Thursday evenings, every other Friday during the day, and whatever free time I might have over the weekends. Keep in mind that I live on the east coast of North America, so this is all EST (GMT -5).

I'm also going to try and put together the 2015 version of Civ4 AI Survivor starting sometime in February - this time to be done on Livestream! - so keep an eye out here and at Realms Beyond for more upcoming details on that.

Today I finished typing up the report of the voyage of the Lanius B Cruiser from last week's marathon streaming session. This one was quite a wild ride, and it makes for a fun read or Livestream viewing. (There's a link to the Twitch recording in the report.) I also want to put a notice here on my website that I was hired last week for a full time position. I'll be going to work as a research analyst for the federal government's Center for Medicare Services, starting in a couple of weeks. It's a very exciting time for me, and the pay certainly promises to be a lot better than a part-time college instructor. I'll have to update the personal page here after I start working. In any case, I'll keep readers informed on what's going on, and I'm sure that I'll still have enough time to continue cranking out reports, albeit probably at a somewhat slower pace. Thanks for your continued support.

It's been a month since the last FTL writeup - let's correct that oversight immediately. New today is a report for the Lanius A Cruiser, a game where I had way too much fun with beam weapons. I recommend watching the linked Livestream for this one, at least the ending of it. You kind of need to see this weapon setup in realtime to get the full effect.
