A Paladin Without A Crusade...
Introduction
Casual reviewer with a sense of justice. My aim here is to share and engage in conversations. My focus is gaming, technology and other subjects that come to mind. Including politics. So far, I'm enjoying the kind of discussions I've been having here. I don't share posts without comment from me nor do I share memes/GIFs that often, as I feel like it's a lazy thing to do. I've come here to talk and engage. 

Note: if I circled you, I do not expect you to circle me back or vice-versa. 

I'm known as KingIsaacLinksr and am known for my blog, channel and other Internet projects I'm up to. My blog is: "A Paladin Without A Crusade". I write about a variety of subjects ranging from gaming to technology, as well as anything else that's on my mind at the time. I've been publishing posts for over three years now. I've also started my own YouTube Gaming Channel as an off-shoot of the blog. I upload videos about games I'm playing lately as well as run series on certain games.

Finally, I'm a co-host for the TeknoCratik blog and podcast. My friend Dangelus and I talk every once in a while about a subject on technology. We go into more detail on software, gadgets, open source alternatives as well as anything we've learned lately. We also have interviews with other people on how they use technology to their benefit or how it's been detrimental to them. 

On a more personal note, I'm an IT/tech support guy looking for a position in the industry. Other than gaming and technology interests, I get into hours-long conversations with people and listen to a huge amount of music and audibooks. I also used to collect trains and build Lego/K'nex sets.

Oof, I'm winding up for my review of the Witcher 1 which is to be completed "soon". I forgot how rough this game is. Bootup problems, graphical problems, resolution won't go higher than 1366x768 due to DirectX issues....yeah. This game has aged poorly. 

Mostly this is a refresh on mechanics and gameplay for the review. I'm not intending on completing the main campaign again because I already did and I don't think I have it in me to do it again. Might do some of the community created stuff though...

So, Google+ is being split up more and more from Google services. 

I'm becoming more concerned that they'll just axe the product entirely at this point. 
Google is officially divorcing Google+ profiles from its other, more popular services. Today the company published a blog post announcing that over the next few months, "a Google Account will be...

The other problem is that there isn't anything quite like G+ ;  Good access controls,  user comments, and embedded multimedia, with all your friend's posts in a single stream.  Facebook is probably the only option with every feature I listed.  Even if LinkedIn added everything, it is still where I do my professional networking, not my personal socializing.

It's funny, but I realized that when my Steam review of Cthulhu Saves the World was constantly switching between a negative and positive review, I decided to start cross-posting them to my website. I was doing this with my full reviews of course, but taking the extra insurance to post them on my blog would prevent the wrong or missing version to disappear. 

The recent trend has been that hosting your own website or blog is pointless. But I disagree. Facebook is an incredibly frustrating network to deal with. Twitter is even moreso, YouTube is fickle and Google+ has an uncertain future. To say nothing of the corporate censorship that goes on in other websites. With your own website, you're your own boss.

Now, it's easy to run your own website. Tools like Wordpress exist that make it easy. There are services out there like TLW Tech, Moyer Multimedia and more that will help you make your own website. And lately, I think it's more important than ever to run your own website. Regardless of whether you make games, publish your own art or run a business. It ensures that you aren't entirely subject to the whims of a corporation.

And if you can use open source programs and tools while you're at it, the better.

One of two albums I'm playing tonight to assist in my next full-length videogame review of a game I subtly hinted at earlier this month. Nervous_Testpilot is always a favorite when I don't know what I want to listen to.

I'm having an incredibly rubbish day to put it simply and lightly. That's why there hasn't been any blog posts. Apologies. My focus, once this passes, is to work on making a really good review this Saturday. Though I haven't figured out what that'll be. I dunno if there will be a Journey Friday. It's quite simply the expendable series when I'm having a rotten day.

Hope everyone else is having a better day than I.

O_o...it's so ridiculous but maybe, just maybe it has a point. Meh, probably not. 

I'm not taking it seriously but I do want this up here in case it does happen...because that would be awfully hilarious.

It's hard enough getting people to USE good passwords and now you're actively blocking people that use password managers because of malware?! When they could just as easily keylog everything they do?! Cmon guys, this is nonsense.

Finishing out my next review with my ever favored album: Identity Sequence by Zircon. Plenty of atmospheric and potent electronic tracks. Good for when I'm in a working mood or uncertain of what I want to listen to.

I wonder if posting opposing viewpoints to any meme I see on Facebook will get people to quit posting them already. Or, open the floor to debate. Which I'd prefer. 

No, it'll probably get me blocked, muted, banned and ostracized from there, wouldn't it.... sighs

Getting sick and tired of seeing them, that's all. At least if you're going to post them, open the floor to debate. Using them to voice your opinion is just annoying. Especially when I see "The Democrats and/or Republicans are Ruining Our Nation because __________".

Pretty good breakfast/diner place to eat at. Eaten there several times over the years and never had a bad experience. Fairly calm atmosphere and a good selection of food. No complaints to list here.

Great place for Thai food. Looked this up on Google Maps and saw all the good reviews which seem well justified! A great calm atmosphere, great looking place and friendly waiter. Plus, the Drunken Noodles were really yummy. Mushrooms seemed like such an odd choice but it worked well. I hope to visit here more often as I recently moved in nearby and was hoping there would be some good Thai food around. A definite recommend from me.

Horrendous service and overpriced food sums up this restaurant. I will never be coming back here again. Had to wait for over two hours for food and it was a slow night. The Steak's overall presentation was horrifying and while it tasted ok, it wasn't worth the $25 they asked for it. And $8 for bread as an appetizer? Yeah, I don't think so. This is a restaurant to avoid. There are much better restaurants in Tillamook.
