    I primarily listen to the heavier genres of music. Occasionally I mellow out and enjoy some good indie/folk. I listen to (from heavier to more mellow): The Devil Wears Prada, August Burns Red, Norma Jean, In Fear & Faith, Emery, A Day to Remember , Burden of a Day, Secret & Whisper, Underoath, Breathe Carolina, Enter Shikari, Muse, Emarosa, The White Stripes, Say Anything, As Cities Burn, Taking Back Sunday, Ben Folds, Oceana, Tides of Man, Anberlin, MGMT, Daft Punk, Coldplay, Explosions in the Sky, Deadmau5, Death Cab for Cutie, The Postal Service, Kings of Leon, Mute Math, The Surrogate, Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, mewithoutYou, Secondhand Serenade, Sigur Ros, The Album Leaf.

    All of my gaming is on my Xbox360 under the gamertag 'mrmobado'. My current gamerscore is 79,000+. I primarily play shooters, RPGs, and action/adventure games. Some of my favorite games include: Halo: Reach, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Borderlands, LA Noire, Alan Wake, Castlevania LoS, Assassin's Creed, Gears of War, The Elder Scrolls, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Viva Pinata.

    I absolutely love watching movies. Some of the my recent favorites are: Inception, Iron Man, The Dark Knight, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Casino Royale, The Prestige, The Lord of the Rings, the Bourne series, Star Trek, Warrior, Super 8, Sherlock Holmes, Sucker Punch, Harry Potter films, The Human Experience, The Incredibles, The Lion King, Charlie Bartlett, and Horrible Bosses. I'm a huge fan of fantasy, sci-fi, and comic book movies. I generally enjoy thrillers and documentaries, as well.

    I don't watch much TV, aside from Community, 30 Rock, and The Office. If, however, a show is on Netflix Instant, I will jump at the opportunity to watch a great show. Some of my favorite shows include: Mad Men, The IT Crowd, Battlestar Galactica, Breaking Bad, Archer, Arrested Development, Trinity Blood, Full Metal Alchemist/Brotherhood, Samurai Champloo, Cowboy Bepop, and Naruto Shippuden.

    When I find the time to read books, they tend to be of the fantasy or science-fiction variety. I'm always looking for good books, but here's a list of some books I have enjoyed: The Harry Potter series, Ender's Game, A Game of Thrones, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Fall of Reach, The Inheritance Cycle, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Circle Series, and many of Ted DekKer's thrillers.

  1. Hey all you MOCers! You should send some cool MOCs to BFAL2014! We had a good turn-out last year, and I think we're already on track to surpass our numbers from last year! That's awesome. Keep building things and don't forget to send them in! PM me for my address. [send your mocs to BFAL emoji]
  2. Aqua Man is pretty OP. He has ridiculous range, and the move of his where he stabs the ground and the trident appears under/below you is wicked powerful. I haven't really played with Green Lantern or Nightwing yet. My favorite is Flash for now. Great move set, cool Super, and he's quick yet still does decent damage. You can add me, I'd like to put in a few practice rounds.

    Injustice

    On Saturday, a handful of my friends came over to my apartment. One of them brought along newly released Injustice: Gods Among Us. We began playing the story and much to our surprise were immediately intrigued by the depth of the story a (for fighting game, at least). Seeing your favorite super heroes become super villains isn't necessarily the most unique idea, but the story is blockbuster-y enough to warrant the 4 to 5 hours straight it took to finish the story line. On more than one occasion we had to verbally refresh ourselves on where the story had taken us and where exactly we were taken across the universe. Even after beating the game in one sitting Saturday night, I went to Best Buy today to buy the game for myself on Sunday. I'm the first to admit that I'm not the best at fighting games by any means, but Injustice does a fantastic job of introducing unfamiliar fighters to the genre while still layering in the mechanics that would make any enthusiast grin. Picking from a handful of the biggest DC heroes and villains certainly adds a layer of appeal to me as well. I've only spent about 2 or so hours practicing my skills outside of the singleplayer campaign. If you'd like to clash in a few practice rounds against me, feel free to send me an invite on Xbox Live.

    PAX East 2013

    I highly recommend that you go next year! PAX is simply amazing. It's been the annual highlight for me three years running now. Be sure to get tickets early for 2014!
  5. I beat Bioshock earlier last week and have yet to play through again. I wanted the ending to really sink in before I jumping into Columbia so quickly again. Currently Dark Souls is absorbing most of my free time. I'll get around to the rest of the Bioshock achievements here soon, though. Truth be told, I actually, kind of, miss those busy semesters...back when I knew exactly what I was working towards. Good luck on the rest of your semester. When do you anticipate on graduating? And yeah those games are about as different as night and day. Because I hear they're both great games! And new Halo maps tomorrow! Will you be on at all?
  6. What's up? How have you been lately? What's on your mind? How is your semester going? Have you played any cool games lately? I don't have a topic I wanted to write about, so I figured I'd ask you guys how you're doing. Talk about anything, I like listening to people.

    PAX East 2013

    As has become tradition, I went to PAX East 2013 in Boston this past weekend. My good friends Andrew, Nate and Adrian (and others not on these forums) accompanied me. If I may, I believe I speak for the entire group in saying we all had an extraordinary time. This was my third time in Boston and my affection for that city grows every year. I would highly enjoy the chance to visit the city outside of PAX and experience of the culture that town has to offer. Maybe this weekend I'll write a blog summarizing some of the things we saw at the expo center. I think I ended up spending more time in the Indie Mega Booth than seeing AAA titles. Regardless, I still played and saw some amazing games. I'd also like to thank Andrew, Nate and Adrian again. You guys are seriously awesome fellas and I had a blast hanging out with you! I don't think we could all hang out again soon enough. Miss you guys!
  8. Yeah he does THANKS BECCA

    Dark Souls

    I can't stop playing Dark Souls. Help meeeeeeeee
  10. I logged into the forums to update the Staff History topic (Thanks, Ziko!) and noticed I had a birthday topic I hadn't checked out yet. A few people commented about my inactivity on the forums. Over the past six months I've started a real job and moved into my own apartment. Full-time work takes a good bit of energy out of you, and I chose to relax mostly by watching Netflix, Hulu or playing my Xbox with friends. I hate to admit it, but BZPower isn't always on my mind when I get home. However, I still get ALL reports sent to my phone and tablet. I will always have an eye out on BZPower. This website was probably more influential in my teenage years than I realize, so I'm never going to fully abandon the site. I was the Bionicle coordinator at BrickFair Alabama this year, so I've still got at interest in LEGO and BZPower. And there are tentative plans in the pipeworks for a few things that would require more of my (and some other staff) direct attention. So while I haven't been the most active staffer, I still hang around and log on every once in a while. I may not post or blog every day, but I'll never go away. And thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes. I had a great day!
  11. Topic updated to reflect some of the recent (or not so recent...) Staff changes. Thanks to Ziko!
  12. Disney World is such a fun time! I can never help but get a huge, stupid grin on my face the first time I see Cinderella's castle. It truly is a magical place. Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain, Pirates of the Carribean, Splash Mountain - they're all a blast! Next time you go, you better go to Universal as well. Also, no pictures? You fail me!

    BrickFair 2013 AL

    As Andrew said, your instructions were very thorough. Thanks! Your Flower MOC received numerous compliments and had quite a few pictures taken. I'd also like to extend my gratitude to everyone else who sent in MOCs - all of you rock! I'll be sure to be the Bionicle Coordinator again next year, and hopefully we'll plan far enough in advance that more people can send awesome creations. Andrew, thanks for such a great time! I honestly had a blast the entire weekend. PAX can't come soon enough!
  14. Uhhhhhhhhhh. Where is Ender's Game. (It's probably going to be butchered, but still, I'm going to see it.)
