My wallet is ready.


Attention Minecrafty Folk

I shall be running a FtB server soonish, using the Horizons modpack. All who are interested can PM me; keep in mind my capabilities are limited and, as such, there'll be a pretty low limit of five to seven players on at a time, but really I doubt it'll be popular enough to warrant much concern over that.


Steam Autumn Sale End Report

Posted by Engineer Alexandra Humva , Dec 03 2013 · 241 views

  • Sleeping Dogs
  • Borderlands 2
  • Torchlight 2
  • Age of Empires II HD Edition, graciously donated by the epic Necro + The Forgotten Expansion, bought by yours truly
  • Dust: An Elysian Tail
  • Gnomoria
  • Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3
While I didn't get everything I was hoping for, it was still a $40 well spent, and due to some recent pawning of my brother's old possessions, I should have another $50 to spend when the Winter Sale arrives. Maybe then I'll go for the deals on CivV and Terran Conflict.


Three cheers for the man of the hour

Here I was, wondering how I'll ever get the stuff I want when pamft, Necro buys me AoE II HD. He's a pretty epic dude y'all, though we all know AoE II is now going come on sale for like ninety percent off now, just to make him feel bad. =P
Edit: Ok so it's 75% off. xD My sympathies man.


Bought Borderlands 2

Posted by Engineer Alexandra Humva , Nov 30 2013 · 122 views

Yay I actually bought something I said I was going get this sale. :U
Just need to make sure there's room in my wallet to pick up X3: Terran Conflict, though I may need to sacrifice getting Gnomoria if something like, say, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut comes on sale. Or Age of Empires II HD edition.
Guuuh that point where I have to actually be wise about my spending ;=;


The Steam Sale So Far

Posted by Engineer Alexandra Humva , Nov 29 2013 · 115 views

Picked up Sleeping Dogs and Red Alert 3, gifted Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
I really am not sticking to my priorities list very well.


Steam Autumn Sale T-Minus 17 hours

My body is not ready, but my wallet is so it's all good.


My wallet is twitching (also game recommendations)

The Steam Autumn and Winter Sales are just around the corner, and in terribly close proximity.
Not like I was going spend that Christmas money on anything else.
So due to this season of spending what little money I have on entertainment, I require your guy's opinions: I have a few games I'm looking out for, but knowing the amazing deals Steam will have, I'm bound to have money for more. So here's a list of the games I know I'm going be keeping an eye out, you guys recommend me some. The ground rules are simple: It can't cost more then $5 after a 50% discount (so ten dollars for you folks less math-inclined =P), it needs to be relatively lightweight (I'm running a $30 video card; a benchmark is I get around 25-30 FPS in Arkham City on low settings), and I'd prefer games that aren't shooters. The exception to this is if it's an exceptionally well done shooter, if it has a good story component, or somesuch.
Humva's Grand List of Games He Wants:
1. Civilization 5 and its expansions
2. Age of Empires II HD and its expansion

3. Bioshock
4. Dues Ex: Director's Cut

Man of simple tastes, as you can see. Which is why I need your guy's help. Keep in mind my Steam library is already somewhat, uh, large, so I'll be around to tell you if I already own said game. A rule of thumb is if it's a big indie hit like FTL or Bastion or Terraria, I prolly already have it. No harm in mentioning it alongside others though, just to make sure.
Humva's Grand List of Games People Told Him He Wants and He Thinks He Does Want
1. Borderlands 2
2. Fallout 3
3. Space Engineers
4. Kerbal Space Program
5. Castle Crashers
6. Dust: An Elysian Tail
7. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet


My internet paradox

Posted by Engineer Alexandra Humva , Nov 22 2013 · 220 views

If I lived in the city, I'd get better internet for cheaper. A lot better actually. If I lived in the country side, I'd even have the possibility of getting gigabit, due to the huge number of businesses here who build lines for businesses in rural places. However, due to living in the suburbs, I get stuck with ever-so-slightly mediocre internet. For what my dad's paying for our business line right now ($70/m) for 6Mbit/s, just an extra thirty bucks would get us gigabit a dozen miles west. Instead of that we've got AT&T, who doesn't offer anything above 20Mbit/s.
Still thankful for, you know, not using dial-up, but still. The year is 2013, I live next to one of the most technologically involved cities in America. I think AT&T can do better than that.

The following blog contains excessive rambling on the world and extremely poor paragraphing. If you are easily offended or turned off by these two things, leaving now would be a good idea.
This blog is written by Alex Humva, penname of some random teenager named Alex Censored. He writes stories, writes rants, writes screenplays, plays games, makes games, has a terrible work ethic, and is generally sarcastic. He believes in a Judao-Christian god, but most other people who do too give him a glare because of his weird beliefs, possibly because he's somehow bi at the same time. He's an utter equalist who feels that any discrimination amongst humans for things they were born with is wrong. He doesn't care about xenos though, let them all burn.
He's also an aspiring engineer who hopes to get a scholarship at his local big engineering college and one day help humanity. More likely he'll be a pencil pusher in a basement somewhere, but he's a bloody minded optimist.
Because of his peculiar personality and beliefs, he gets into fights often, though they usually end when he wakes up the next morning and doesn't feel motivated anymore.
