Adventures In Gaming – Super Monday Night Combat (SMNC)

Just been told by a well-known gaming troll that “You make the game worse you dumb cunt”
The previous round I went assassin, spawned 2 “bouncer” bots (a gorilla that runs around and smashes you, plus some shooting android that thwaps you for some distance), used my smoke bomb to blind the super turrets and allowed them to get at odokee unharmed. The turrets woke back up and killed me.
Odokee died from the gorilla bot, however.
I laughed like a witch.
See, if I was younger or had more delicate sensibilities, or my self-esteem leaned on the game at all, or if I wasn’t a writer with things to do and things going on, his comment when waiting for a new group would have hurt and sent me to possible tears.
Obviously that didn’t happen.

As of now, I am (going to be) a published author!

My very first short story acceptance on a story I both worked my ass off on, and loved.

The Ace of Knives” has been accepted for Postscript To Darkness 6.

A pyro in Team Fortress 2 named “The Ace of Knaves”, Amal El-Mohtar’s “Wing” and “Hoarding” planted the seed, well-timed words watered it, nourished it, made it grow.

And it left the nest, found a home.

I’ve squealed thanks on Twitter already, run amuck, hit things while running amuck, and ran amuck some more. So.

It will be published early next year.

More details then.

More gaming-related comedy relief

This one’s got a more mature theme.

(me): What do you have to hit Nuke with to make him die
(me) : I smacked him on the nuts with rox
Rowdy Roddy Sniper : It’s ok. Nuke’s been rendered impotent due to the fact the horseshoe in his ass has crushed the veins
leading to his penis
(me): roflmao
Rowdy Roddy Sniper : arteries rather. My taunts should be anatomically correct, sorry.
NUKEBAHB : u mad?
(me) : roflmao
Rowdy Roddy Sniper : u limp? 😉
(me) : BAHAHA

Silliness On Spiral Knights…

“crits (that’s me) can be steve”

(me):- “I am not equipped to be called any male names…”

(me):- “except man-pigeon (… it’s a joke on my steam profile). ’cause, potatoes.”

(silliness ensues)

(me):- “no I am not kidding. I am literally not equipped to be called any male names…”

(after some consternation …)

(me) “I’m female, genius.”

“no I thought steve was a cross-dressing potato…”

My name was ‘steve the cross-dressing potato’ for the rest of the day yesterday. There was stalking, and a screenshot, but it didn’t take on Steam, I am finding out too late.

So all you have are snippets of the bufoonery that took place in chat… that may or may not have been documented clearly enough without the screenshot…

But I still wanna post about it…

So there.
