tempest in a teacup

the pointless musings of a strange recluse

Epic fail?

So Epic Games is on Steam now.

This is probably because I’m weird, but the first thing I thought when I saw the lineup was “Where the hell is Jazz Jackrabbit?!”
I mean, sure, I liked Unreal as much as, if not more than Quake II back in the day (never really played any of the UT games), but if id software can get Commander Keen, of all things, on Steam, surely Epic can post up one of the best PC platformers of all time! And its sequel, for that matter.

Heck, they could probably get One Must Fall 2097 on there too, since it’s technically freeware now.


My mom has started making suggestive noises about my supposed need to go and, uh, get more “involved” with meeting people of the opposite sex (to which my dad more or less just rolls his eyes). You may recall that I’ve talked about this subject before. Not much has changed regarding my ineptitude since then. My concerns are also, as you might expect, unchanged.

It seems like any efforts I have to make on this front will require a significant investment of time and effort, which I’m not sure I’m willing to do. On the other hand, I’m not a big fan of matchmaking systems. So I’m pretty much stuck between a rock and a hard place at the moment, at least as far as this problem goes.

Oh well, at least I have more important things to deal with that can put this out of my mind. Like my visa situation -_-
