Phenom is on a distinguished road
Stopping by again to say hello.

Mainly been working. Shift change yet again. Within the last 3 months I've been through more shift changes than I can ever remember doing last year. and it's not by choice either (We don't have a union so I don't get a say in the matter). It feels so weird waking up in the mornings again. I've been working Saturdays too, mainly because my student loans are about to kick back in again (had to do a deferment). These people must really think I'm superman or something.

As far as gaming goes, not much has really changed. Mainly been playing Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter 3rd Strike. It's because of SF4 that I appreciate 3rd Strike more now. My problem back then with 3S was the roster. Didn't care for them. But seeing these characters in SF4 made me go back to see how they were in 3S, and seeing high level play played a huge role as well.

Unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to go to EVO this year (work and no vacation time left). Had I known that this years EVO was going to be stacked with international powerhouses I would've definitely held out last year and went this year. I did get to see some of it streamed though, and it just don't beat being there to feel the hype.

As for new consoles... I'm going to hold out on getting the PS4. I'm hyped for it, along with some of the titles for it, but I want to give it some time just to see what kind of kinks gotta be worked out. That price point is solid too. Sony really made up for the PS3.

New games I'm waiting for;

Metal Gear Solid 5 (of course)
Ultra Street Fighter 4
Assassin's Creed 4
Batman: Arkham Origins

I feel like I'm missing something, but at the moment those are what amped for.

Anyway, I don't know who play fighting games here (and I'm a scrub in both SF3 and 4), but I'd like to have some Endless Battles someday just for pure fun, although, I don't know why, but my internet is crappy in my room but it seems to functions good in the rest of the house. Wireless routers sucks I guess.
Current Game
SSF4: AE2012 - Ken, Ryu, Evil Ryu
SF3rd Strike - Yang, Ken, Ryu
