To start this blog off with a bang, I am going to talk about my favorite game of all time. Saints Row 2.

It’s tough to sum up the game, but I think the best way I have ever seen is with a random line of dialog shouted by various pedestrians as you race past. “Saints row, Bitches!”

This game is honestly at its best when you have no idea whats going on. The story is amazing of course, but I find I have the most fun when I am not doing the story (by the way, you don’t have to have played the first to enjoy the second, most of my friends haven’t). Hijacking a plane, flying up as high as I can, being harassed by military helicopters, then bailing out at the last-minute and falling well over a thousand feet before hitting the ground with a bounce. Attacking random pedestrians with a huge cleaver, while other pedestrians take pictures with cellphone cameras. Running an incredibly sexy car head-on into a gas station and watching it soar through the air, to collide with a building (and barely surviving); these are all moments I will never forget. That all happened on my first play through. Shortly after, I discovered co-op.

Hey, would ya look at that, I am on the Internets.

So I figured I would use this to talk about what I plan to do with this blog. I plan to use this mainly as a direct feed into my brain, with rants and thoughts on various games, movies, or shows. Mostly games, but lets face it, if I have thoughts that are important I am gonna share. 

Most of my rants will follow a logical path, and I will likely have consistent themes over time (such as games I am playing now, or movies I think are awesome), or I could just ramble.

 YAY for the internet!
