Blogs are an evil twisted form of web existence. They prod at you to do something, and cause small needling pain to their owners. They are often the vex of those of us who want an internet presence, but yet do not hold the blog as their main form of online distinction. Add to the blog dilemma other open forms such as that of Facebook, Twitter, and such social media, and you can quite easily have a small meltdown over how best to represent yourself to the internet world.
This blog has it’s fits and starts, and as a result the content is largely a missive of my travels, and gaming thoughts to date. Don’t get me wrong I enjoy putting finger to keyboard, and jotting down ideas, thoughts and ramblings of my days, but sometimes you get caught in the crossfire of what’s appropriate for the audience who follow you, and what you’d like to post up because of why you think that audience follows you. Then there’s the separate point of whether or not anyone gives a shit about what you might present to the internet anyway. Recently, I’ve neglected this blog for time reasons – no other reason whatsoever, just the sheer lack of being able to invest the time to the format I previously thought needed top occur – I’ve always thought I’d need to write a small thesis for anyone to care enough to read it. In fact, the joys of laziness in relation to how we have more done for us in our lives, and the ways in which we communicate in general, along with a host of other philosophical and mostly overindulgent debating points, it is apparent that the majority just like to read short, gripping articles, notes, or other diatribe that befits our interests. To this end, I figured that I would start to regularly write in this blog (let’s see how long this lasts…) and get online and jot down thoughts and try to let (and more importantly get!) you as an audience interact with me on these.
Why now? Because today is my birthday, and I figured it’s as good a time as any to celebrate an anniversary and kick things to life.
Project Get Some
Over the last few months I’ve been working on a project. I’ve been trying to work out a way to get some presence for Arseynimz back to the internet, and once an idea was born after many discussions (drunken or otherwise), and some solid thought applied along with a few opinions gathered, there has been some momentum created. The delivery of this project is some time away, but you’ll be seeing me back in front of the camera soon enough bringing a number of gaming, pop culture, cosplay and other “geek” (I hate using that word to describe a community of awesome people) related stuff. Stuff is the best way to describe it, as the plan is to literally cover an extensive scope of topics and options.
I’ll have more to reveal soon, but for now just know that there are plans and actions afoot.
So, to start off the interactivity side of this blog – let me know what, who, or where you’d like to see me present in this project.
Console gamers are a different bunch. They’re generally younger than the PC gamers I’m accustomed to, and as a result, they’re louder, more brash, and they epitomise the modern gamer that you see stereotypes of. But those that play on XBOX are (mostly) likeable characters, and generally have an appreciation for PC games in general given their platform of choice (until recently) did not have the ability to traverse the interweb. This small factor means they are not nearly as impossible to deal with as the average Playstation gamer. This, is a good thing.

Two weeks ago Halo 4 was released, and the New Zealand public were the first on the planet to take it home. XBOX New Zealand and EB Games put on a monster event and we were there again taking in the night, as well as the reactions. More…
I love doing these promo videos, and the BarCraft scene in New Zealand is filled with a lot of friends and people who share the same interest. The videos are purely promotional, and an awesome display of the Pariah eSports production team capability – if you haven’t already, click that link and like them More…
