RWBY: Grimm Eclipse Alpha Playthrough

I got the opportunity to play RWBY: Grimm Eclipse, a game based on the anime RWBY by Rooster Teeth Productions. The game is in its Alpha stage, created by Jordan Scott. It's great thus far, but I'm ready to see the rest of the game as it progresses. Have a watch and if you want to try out the game yourself, the link is in the video's description and you must be a sponsor on Rooster Teeth's website. Happy Sunday!

Hey all,

My stream from last night in Killer is Dead is now uploaded on my YouTube channel. This game is a lot of fun. I just wish I remembered what the block button was. Well, have a watch.

Killer is Dead Stream! [Edit from 12/7/14]

Yo homies,

My stream in Killer is Dead from yesterday is now edited and uploaded on YouTube. Watch below if you like.

I've never played a Suda 51 game before, but I've watched streams of Shadows of the Damned and Lollipop Chainsaw, both also Suda 51 titles, and thought I would try Killer is Dead when I picked it up during a Steam sale. I think it's pretty good so far and looks as if it may be a shorter title than the two titles I've watched and I'm hoping that the combat style doesn't get too overly complicated  as I spend more time on the game. I also really enjoy the art style.

If you want to watch when I'm live, head to www.twitch.tv/caofontaine. Thanks.

Reading is Fun (11 Years Later)

Was it really middle school that started making reading such a burden? Reading textbooks to do your homework, summer reading for book reports, and analyzing literary elements seems to caused a downward spiral for reading just for the sake of enjoying a story. Between 2003 to about 2013, I've probably only read about 10 books for enjoyment. I'm a little disappointed by that. I mean, at the end of the day, when you're done with your homework and projects and such, the last thing a person wants to do is to read something. It's either television or sleep. Perfectly acceptable excuses under the given circumstances.

Since graduating 5 months ago, I've read almost a many books in those 5 months than I have in the 10 years or so of school. Off the top of my head, from May 2014 to November 2014, I've read:

Halo: Cryptum by Greg Bear
Halo: Primordium by Greg Bear
Halo: Silentium by Greg Bear
Halo: Glasslands by Karen Traviss
Halo: The Thursday War by Karen Traviss
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

So that's 6 books done and I'm currently reading A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, book one of A Song of Ice and Fire. Counting a list I have to read, it reaches to about 9 more books after this one. It's like a video game. You continue to play the ones that have extremely engaging stories and are enjoyable experiences. I read the books that keep me coming back for more, to answer the questions I have in their next installment. Words are fun.
