I am so ashamed

The Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament is running as I write this, a scant two or so hours from where I am sitting. I can come up with all sorts of excuses for not being there: I don't have the money, I don't have a PS3 stick, I haven't been practicing, I have no one to go with, it's in Chicago and I hate Chicago, it might rain, there is kite festival at the lake front that I did not go to but would have if the weather was better, I don't like crowds, I don't like people, I am to old for the scene, I am easily intimidated by those with more skill, the end of the world has been pushed off to October and I need to get ready again.

It's all bull shit, I'm just a big pussy.

I went through the player seedings and Milwaukee and its suburbs are almost completely unrepresented. This is made even stranger by the fact that a guy from Madison is running the thing. I know there is a Milwaukee scene, at least they post on SRK a lot, but none of them are going.

It looks like I am not the only guy from 'north of the boarder' that really hates dealing with Chicago.

...

Dragon Age 2 feels like it is approaching the end, but it is difficult to tell. Each chapter has had its own beginning middle and end, like a collection of separate DLC offerings. There have been two cameos from the first Dragon Age that I have noticed so far. The first was a drunken Alistair going on and on about how he should be a prince but was betrayed by the Wardens. I had chosen Loghain over Alistair. Sure, he betrayed his king and indirectly killed hundreds of fellow soldiers, but he kept his mouth shut. Alistair never stopped bitching, but he was my only tank, so I had to put up with it until I found a suitable replacement.

The second was Zenran, just as evil and gay as he was in the first game. I was okay with not being able to recruit him; I did not want to have to worry about catching a knife in the back something else somewhere else for the rest of the game.
