Borderlands 2 Part 33: The Double Cross

Isstvan82 has recorded several weeks of Borderlands 2 in advance now! He's shown amazing anti-spoiler restraint, so I don't blame him in just getting on with it.

Minecraft with Friends! Part 22: It Works Right Now!

AngeliqueDaemon does some redecorating, and Isstvan82 perfects the XP spawner!

Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation (PS3): MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Gameplay

It's a better Mobile Suit than I am a pilot, I can tell you that much. Only lost by a hair on this one, though!

Borderlands 2 Part 32: I Know How This Is Going To Go

I assume there will be shooting.

Minecraft with Friends! Part 21: Not Good Enough

In the comments on today's videos: "Angelique has the most amazing evil laugh EVER! absoultly amazing! how do you achieve a laugh like that?" "Practice," Isstvan replied.

Minecraft with Friends! Part 20: Good Enough!

Isstvan's falling into lava is CONTAGIOUS. I've burned in my Minecraft games more in the past week than the rest of all the (very short) time I've played put together.

Borderlands 2 Part 31: Mordecai!

Mord's another character I never played all the way through in Borderlands 1. I think I'll have to do so soon.

Black Matrix Zero Part 12: Demons With Night Vision Goggles

Here's what I'm fighting in the optional battles at Carbine: demons with night-vision goggles! Groovy. And another thing I've noticed lately: some swords, like Exal's hit diagonally, getting a square targeting space instead of the usual front-back-left-right cross of spaces. We do this a few times and get Syria a better bow, but the XP and cash are just too damn low to entertain the idea of upgrading everyone's gear to the fullest.

Time to soldier on!

Minecraft with Friends Part 19: Hmm, Yep, I Did Something Wrong

Complex as these things are, it's easy to mess them up. I'm amazed by the cleverness and elegance of some of the things people have designed for Minecraft, though.

Borderlands 2 Part 30: These Things Are Bastards

I used the shield made from the robot for a while. It talks to you constantly!

Black Matrix Zero Part 11: How Come We Never Get To Kill Who I Want To Kill?

Two Mandos, matter of fact. Turns out "Pasca" isn't a name but a class or type or something, because they're both labeled that way.

...wait, I just noticed. Syria's with the group, but no Cain. Did Veil and Caldia kidnap him or something? Either way, we hack our way through the group and get everybody up to Level 12 except Kirota. It seems as though you can only gain three levels after a given fight. Then why did you give me somebody 4 levels down!? He did pretty well, though!

Minecraft with Friends! Part 18: I Never Know What I'm Doing!

That makes two of us!

Borderlands 2 Part 29: The Murder Bot Keeps Trying To Murder Me!

...huh, I never found Flinter in the TMNT mission yesterday. Worst part is that when not playing I recognized it as Master Splinter's room from the cartoon IMMEDIATELY.

Black Matrix Zero Part 10: No Pinch-Hitting This Time

Cain runs after Matia, and Exal and Lilith talk about... stuff? Things. One of those.

With Syria chasing after him, Cain has found Veil. Veil says Syria's name... he knows her? I bet they're related. They're both orangey blonde, and have wings sprouting out of their damn shoulder blades.

"Onii-sama...!" CALLED IT.

Minecraft with Friends Part 17: We Will Build An XP Farm

Zombies are absolutely the best thing to farm, since they drop iron ingots and gear at random. Luckily Zombie spawners seem to be the most common kind of dungeon in my experience!

Borderlands 2 Part 28: Ow, My Childhood!

Tip from a Toy Dork: track down the gigantic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Classics action figures. You will not be disappointed.

Black Matrix Zero Part 9: Silly Hats For Everyone!

Wherever Luca and Zion are, they're arguing again. Probably about how much murder, precisely, is Too Much. Wherever they are, Luca spots Matia, then is knocked out...

After which this dude pontificates about something, perhaps literally. Then Cain bursts in and has to be restrained by Yohane, who I'm increasingly sure is not dead at all. Then the conversation works its way around to You-Know-What-Dammit-Japan.

...that's the guy that somebody was talking to earlier! Lilith, I think. (Was talking to him, that's not his name. I think.) I'll call him Anime Harry Potter until proven wrong.

Minecraft with Friends Part 16: Organizing!

Ah, the supply hut. It's taken shape nicely!

Borderlands 2 Part 27: Save ME You Jerk

I finished the game today, and even managed not to spoil Isstvan about anything in so doing! Yay! http://flailthroughs.blogspot.com/2012/10/mobile-suit-gundam-battle-operation-ps3_14.html

Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation (PS3): MS-05 Zaku I Gameplay

The Zaku I is fragile, but its tackle packs a hell of a punch. It's also surprisingly spry, and it respawns faster than you do at Level 1. I'm not good with it, but I have fun with it.
