  • 11:16:41: Finally! Dragon Quest VI gets a US release date. Valentine's Day! It's Squeenix's say of saying they love me!
  • 11:16:57: Or... it could be Squeenix's way of saying "this game will bomb and we're putting it in the dead zone". either or.
  • 11:26:54: RT @dmataconis: DADT Repeal A Threat To DOMA? http://bit.ly/eEGaQM
  • 14:10:15: I'm getting jaded. My response to everything being pitched as news today is "I'm not fucking running that".
  • 14:11:05: And the problem with me saying "so and so comes out on X date" is that PK already does that on IP Games. Still don't know how to split it.
  • 15:54:08: Hey Rush! I am happy about DADT repeal! Does that mean I show hatred and contempt for the military, too? #imaveteranyoufuckingdrugaddict
  • 16:07:53: Playing NHL '11. In an unfamiliar position: needing three wins to stay alive/win the Cup. I'm not supposed to lose! I don't lose!!!
  • 16:20:21: Could someone explain to me what the hell this #mooreandme stuff is all about?
  • 16:30:48: I always play best - in video games and real life - with my back to the wall. 5-0, game 5, with 9:32 left in the 3rd. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 16:32:43: Aha! So #mooreandme is about Olbermann and some other site outing the rape accusers. Yeah. I gots me some opinions here. #totheblogcave
  • 16:34:59: 6-0, Virtual 'Nucks over Virtual Devils. The goals that Kipper was stoning before are slipping through now. Giggy's in. #savethevirualnucks
  • 16:45:35: Wow. Newt Gingrich basically just called Michael Steele the GOP's token negro. Not in those words, but just about. http://bit.ly/hM2uLd
  • 16:48:49: 7-0. I hope I still have some goals left for game 6. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 16:52:42: OK. Time for game six in Virtual New Jersey. Non-game fans, just ignore me for another hour or so. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 16:54:40: Definitely finishing this series today. I'm doing no work until this is done. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 16:57:21: Yep, game six off to the usual start. Two minutes for boarding on Iginla, within six minutes. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 16:58:35: For those wondering, this is a fantasy draft franchise. That's how my first line in VAN ends up being Iginla, P. Statsny and M. Raymond.
  • 17:00:12: Looks like my goaltender (C. Price) came to play. Thank God. Can't have another game 4 (yanked after 4) out of him. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:04:52: End of the 1st, 0-0. Tentative game, both teams (Statsny + S. Koivu) have hit the post. Shots are 4-3 NJD. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:06:00: We struck first blood; N. Horton out with injury for NJD. V. Hedman joins clean oxygen as being the bane of New Jersey. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:08:12: Price! He just saved the day with a huge breakaway save. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:09:47: Kipper coming up big, too. Huge save on my bomb from the point. #savethevirtualnucks #yeahicreatedmyself
  • 17:11:09: GOAL. Stupid fucking autodekes. Petteri Nokelainen, from Brian Gionta. 1-0 NJD. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:14:09: POST. Brandon Dubinsky. I'm seeing more iron than Rosie the Riveter. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:15:09: End of 2. 1-0, NJD. Shots are 9-8, them. Time to open the floodgates from the point. Crash the net, boys. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:15:55: It helps that this game is extremely realistic. The Devils are basically playing a 1-54 forecheck.
  • 17:17:11: GOAL! Holy shit, that's not my game, I'm a defensive guy! Bowen (4), from Hedman and Statsny. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:22:19: GOAL!!! Jason Arnott (3), unassisted! Looked for options after winning it back, had none, blast from the point. 2-1. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:25:12: 19.7 left, but I'm in their end. The Russians looked more organized against the U.S. in '80. They can't win a draw. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:26:31: BIG step-up by Hedman at the blue-line as time expires! 2-1 final, we're going back to Virtual Vancouver! #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:27:56: Final shots: 18-15 VAN, 10-6 in the third. I'd say my strategy of "SHOOT, SHOOT, FUCKING SHOOT" paid off.
  • 17:29:15: One game left. Injury update: NJD's N. Horton will play with a bad groin. VAN has a clean bill of health. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:31:40: Smythe watch: P. Statsny leads all scorers with 24 pts. Raymond leads with 13 goals. B. Gionta NJD's leading scorer, 22 #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:33:30: Lineup change for VAN: B. Wheeler demoted to the 4th line, M. Hejduk will take his place on 3rd. Recchi stays on 2nd. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:43:05: This just in: the Canucks will pay homage to their last Finals team in game 7. http://yfrog.com/hsh39kj #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:48:48: And... we're off in Virtual Vancouver! Game 7 faces off in moments! #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:49:16: I really dig shit like this. Just because my playing career is over doesn't mean I don't get off on competition. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:49:53: ALREADY, a breakaway for Mason Raymond is stoned by a diving poke check by Nik Lidstrom. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:50:42: And Horton SMOKES Statsny at the line, causing Iginla to go offsides. We don't even have a shot yet and it's on. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:52:37: Quick turnover in the *slot* by NJD, Iginla pounces, but Kipper's all over it. Still scoreless, 14:21 left in the 1st. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:54:03: GOAL! Dubinsky on a nice little move, bang, score! Dubinsky (5), from Subban and Price. 1-0, VAN. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:55:30: 7:12 left, 1st. We're all over them; shots are 6-0, and my 4th line just got three of them. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 17:57:49: GOAL! Bad bounce off of S. Staios, and NJ's P.M. Bouchard puts it in. Bouchard, from Schultz, Sturm. 1-1.
  • 17:59:08: GOAL! My first line comes through again. Iggy on the deflection! Iginla (13) from Bowen and Hedman. 2-1, VAN. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:00:39: GOAL!!! C. Stillman, off a turnover, getting a break! 3-1, end of 1. What a period! We should open it up now. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:02:47: Beginning of the 2nd, NJD's already in big trouble. 2 minutes on D. Legwand, offensive zone hooking.
  • 18:06:12: SCORE! IGINLA, on the perfect one-timer! Iginla (13), from Raymond. 4-1, NJD only has 4 shots. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:09:46: Close call! Rene Corbet, off the post on a good feed from Nokelainen. Still 4-1, though Hejduk just took a trip. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:11:47: Got VERY lucky on that PK. Lecavalier was wide open in front, but put it wide. Still 4-1, 1:56 left in the 2nd.
  • 18:12:26: Oooooh, big no-call. Should have been a trip, because Mason Raymond was about gone.
  • 18:13:18: GOAL! I have two offensive skills, and one - a big shot - was on display. Bowen (5), from Halpern. 5-1, the rout is on! #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:14:16: End of 2, 5-1 VAN. Shots: 19-10 VAN, most of theirs were on a power play. Just one more period.
  • 18:14:46: At intermission, I will talk to my virtual players and psyche them up. Or gather laundry to do. Either or. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:17:53: If I win this game - and it's looking good - it's notable: it's my first Cup, from first game to last, on Superstar. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:20:25: OK, here we go. Unless I collapse, all that's left is a ceremony. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:21:48: NJ's done. On the first shift, Legwand takes a trip and Iggy hits the post, almost a hat trick. 18:27, 5-1, VAN PP. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:24:26: ALMOST got caught after the penalty expired; they hit Legwand on the break, but T. Myers got back. Still 5-1, 15:50. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:26:06: GOAL! It's over. Just cycled them into the ground. Stillman (7), from Recchi and Myers. 6-1. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:26:59: For as well as he played against me, Kipper deserved better than the tug of a rope. Giguere in. 11:54. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:28:22: Another PP, this time for a hook. Just bombing away at this point, Raymond hits a post. 6-1. #savethevirtualnucks #imsorryotherfriends
  • 18:29:49: GOAL! If this was a real game, we'd be seeing fights. Dubinsky (6), from Recchi and Subban. 7-1. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:30:53: GOAL! Well, at least one Devil showed up. Bouchard (4), from Sturm and Schultz. 7-2.
  • 18:33:20: Penalty. Ugly one: Staios, for a hit from behind.7-2, 3:08. One more penalty to kill. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:35:06: GOAL! I think I've mentally checked out at this point, that was bad. Lecavlier (7)(PP), from Sturm and Lidstrom. 7-3. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:36:39: Penalty. Just end this stupid game already. Dubinsky for slashing. :34, 7-3 VAN. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 18:40:41: GAME. 7-3, Virtual Vancouver! After the stress of games 4-6, game seven was anticlimactic. Wish I had a tighter finale. #savethevirtualnucks
  • 23:16:41: RT @T_DaSilva: Since Bethesda's Fallout patch, I'm up to it crashing twice a night. #fail #xbox #fallout
