The most wonderful time of the year (for gamers)

Well, it's that time again! E3 is here! As you probably know, several of the big press conferences happened today. Honestly, there wasn't a whole lot announced that I care much about. Pretty much nothing in the Microsoft conference interested me, though the Kinect stuff was fun to watch because of how terrible it was. I hear the new Tomb Raider looks awesome, but I missed that trailer since I tuned in too late. I'll have to watch it later.

Ubisoft's conference was mostly crap, EA's didn't have much I cared about, and Sony's was full of a lot of boringness, aside from Uncharted 3 and Vita. I must say that Vita is looking quite cool. It definitely isn't something I care to buy at launch, but I'd like to own one eventually. It's certainly seems to have MUCH more potential than the PSP ever had. I saw a few quick shots of a new Vanillaware game on Vita. They made Odin Sphere and Muramasa, and I'm in love with the style of those games, so I'm quite happy to see a new game by them in the works.

Well, I guess we shall see what goodies (and fails) Nintendo will have for us tomorrow! Let's see, what else have I been up to lately?

Oh yeah, I went to a bar/venue with some friends on Friday for 80's night. I had a great time dancing to all those 80's hits! I didn't drink though, just danced. I did leave to get two vegan hot dogs at one point, because they're YUM SO GOOD. I don't go out and do stuff like that very often, so it was fun to do something different for a change. My friends kept begging me to go, and I finally caved. I'm glad I went!

Some of my fellow Nerdy Show members have their own Dungeons & Dragons campaign they've been doing for a while, and it's called Dungeons & Doritos. They had me do some voice acting for their most recent episode, so you can listen to that here if you're interested. My parts start at about 84 minutes in. I do a couple different characters.

Since a few of our Nerdy Show guys are over in LA for E3 right now, we're recording short podcasts with them each night to get a little recap of their day and to discuss the various E3 shenanigans. The one from tonight should be up early tomorrow, so head on over to the Nerdy Show site if you want to check those out:

So, I've been thinking about dying my hair black again. I'm not sure if I want to do it or not, since my hair has finally mostly returned to it's natural color from before I dyed it the first time. I liked having black hair, though, since it makes for a nice contrast with blue eyes. It also makes me look more like my mom, because her hair is very dark. The good thing about the dye I use is that it isn't permanent, so I have black hair for several months before it starts slowly fading back to my natural color. It isn't something I'll be stuck with for many years until my hair grows all the way back out. You guys have seen enough recent photos/videos of me with my natural hair color, but here are a couple of photos and a video of me with black hair. They're like the only ones I could find. (click for larger images)

So, after seeing the photos/videos and comparing, tell me: Should I dye it black again? I'm making a poll for it, so feel free to vote there, and leave a comment about it if you so desire!

Have a lovely night, you lovely people.


  1. Wow you really look nice with black hair I think you should dye it back to black in my opinion

  2. In mine, it's more nice your natural hair color, but I don't think have to worry you, if you want to dye it, then dye it.

  3. gawd austin, go to bed :P

    and I think I like your natural hair color better, but do whatever you want, I'm not gonna stop you, nor is anyone else.

  4. I think you should dye it, why not? gives you something new for a bit, and it doesn't look too shabby to say the least
