10 Reasons Why Living Alone Is Awesome

Having gone from living with my parents for over 20 years to living with my fiance-turned wife for several years after that to now living alone for the last 3 years I can honestly say that living alone, at least for me, is by far the best. Here are some reasons why:

1) You can be as loud as you want

Want to play Mass Effect 3 in glorious 7.1 digital surround sound all night with zero guilt or need to consider someone else? Have at it!

2) Do your chores when you want to (or never). 

You can do them at your own convenience and pace, without ever being nagged or criticized.

3) Smokers can smoke in the house all they want if you don't care. 

I have friends who smoke and they were never allowed to smoke in the house before. Now? They can smoke in my basement all they want- this is especially great for them in the winter.

4) Sleep wherever, whenever and always uninterrupted. 

No one will hit you with "when are you getting up" or "why don't you come to bed, it's late?" If it's your day off and you want to sleep for 15 hours....you can!

5) No one but you eats your food. 

No more "who ate my taco? I was saving that!"

6) The temperature is set to EXACTLY your preference at all times. 

And NO ONE complains :) My house is 64 degrees this winter. Saving tons of money on heating and no one is telling me to turn it up because they are cold (meaning of course that I have to be too hot....no thanks).

7) If you play an instrument you can play whenever you want. 

I play the drums and nothing is more glorious than being able to just PLAY when I feel like it.

8) If you missed the lesson on sharing in kindergarten living alone is for you.

That family size box of overly sugary, diabetes inducing cereal? All mine, mine, mine!

9) Come and go as you please. 

Go out whenever you want and have no one to answer to (or ask).

10) Have people over anytime you want. 

There's never a time where you have to "check" with someone else. I can have an impromptu jam session with a guitarist friend, something that would have been nearly impossible before.

Living alone isn't for everyone, but for people like me, it's GREAT. Everyone should at least try it once in their lives.

E3 2011 - EA & Ubisoft Conferences

Written by Syko Shadow


Well, Microsoft disappointed me greatly. I'm only excited by four of the things they've shown, and I already knew about two of them before E3 even started. Hopefully, EA and Ubisoft will satiate my appetite for gaming news.

Remember, all of this is simply my opinions of the announcements as I heard them, and all of which are my opinion. So if anything I say offends or angers you... well I'm doing my job. Allons-y!

Mass Effect 3 Dumbed Down and Delayed to 2012.

"One of the things that Ray Muzyuka and the team up in Edmonton have done is essentially step-by-step adjust the gameplay mechanics and some of the features that you'll see at E3 to put this in a genre equivalent to shooter-meets-RPG," he said, "and essentially address a much larger market opportunity than Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 began to approach.
"We're huge believers in the IP and are purposefully shifting it to address a larger market opportunity."
As revealed earlier today, the much-anticipated sequel to last year's acclaimed sci-fi epic will now ship out in early 2012, rather than later this year as originally promised."
Nice going, Bioware. 

Oh, and btw, Sykoshadow.....I fucking told you so. Suck it, bitch.

Mass Effect 3 Game Informer Scans - Syko Shadow's Thoughts

It feels like forever since the teaser trailer for Mass Effect 3 at the VGA's (which, along with the Arkham City trailer, were the only good parts of the entire award show). Finally, we're getting some good info on the final game in my favorite video game trilogy, and I'm loving every page. The trees that were chopped down to make these magazine pages died for a good cause, dammit!

Source: Mass Effect 3 Game Informer Article Scans (SPOILERS)

NOTE: On the original webpage I got these scans from, the pages of the article are not in the correct order. I made sure to do each scan in the correct order, from page 50 to 61.
