Beyond Pissed at Xbox/Microsoft

Written by Randi on November 4th, 2015 at 7:21 PM

For our 8th anniversary, Andrew bought me an Xbox One. I was ecstatic. I had my last gamertag for a while and for whatever reason, I decided to change it. Had I known the following information I would not have done it. I tried to change my gamertag back to what it was this past

Rage-inducing Minecraft

Written by Randi on March 16th, 2015 at 6:47 PM

I’ve been playing on Whitter’s whitelisted, nearly-hardcore Minecraft server. It’s not real hardcore where if you die, you are banned. If you die, you drop everything you have and it disappears so there is no retrieving and there is no natural health regeneration. Holy crap. It sucks! Unfortunately, if I want to play with other

My little brother’s only present (kind of, if you don’t really count the games) was a PS4. He was ecstatic to have it. However, right after installing the updates, PSN went down and has yet to return. This picture was taken as of this morning. Whether it was just expected Christmas traffic or if “hacker”

I got PAYDAY 2

Written by Randi on October 19th, 2014 at 9:07 PM

Payday 2 was free this past weekend. I decided to try it out last night, around 2am, and had some fun with Andrew. Above is a screenshot from last night. I just bought the game today and I’m looking forward to playing more. At least this way, I can spend time with Andrew doing what

Well, the end of September marked the one year blogiversary of 8BitHeart. Yes, it’s already been a year. Looking back, I’ve noticed that I don’t do much blogging. That’s really because I spend more time playing video games than I do writing about them. Just because I’m not daily blogging, doesn’t mean I’m not staying

The International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club, or IGGPPC, is just that. It’s a place for geeks to find other geeks and mail each other cool geek stuff. This idea is brilliant and I’m happy that they are around. Here is the manifesto that I’ve just discovered today and thought was just the cutest thing.

Newest Obsession: Minecraft!

Written by Randi on June 17th, 2014 at 2:35 AM

My newest obsession: Minecraft. For a few weeks, I’ve been mulling over asking Andrew to get it. I’ve watched a few streams on Twitch about it and it looked like fun. So, I said, “Why the hell not?” We’re actually having some fun with it. Andrew, Myself, and my little brother got copies and we

One of the leading companies in entertainment devices and software for gamers, and my personal favorite, alienated a portion of their fanbase today. The person(s) who maintain Razer’s Facebook account, posted a sexist image implying that all gamers are male. The picture shows what appears to be a shelf in a closet. On one side

I’ve been quiet on here for a while but I’ve not stopped gaming. I switch from my Xbox to my 3DS a lot but I rarely stop to talk about it on here. Right now, my laptop needs a new charger so I’d rather be multitasking than sitting at my PC in the office. I

Have A Nerdy Christmas!

Written by Randi on November 23rd, 2013 at 9:06 PM

Thanksgiving is this week and I plan to decorate for Christmas the weekend after. I don’t like decorating too soon anyway. This is my first Christmas on my own and I’ve always said how I was going to decorate differently than my mom did. My mom always used colored lights, used ornaments to hide holes

Despite the fact that nearly everything has been about Pokemon lately, it won’t always be. It’s just a big game for me and I’m very excited about it. Our whole week is free for just Pokemon. Andrew took off all of next week to play it and this week seems to be dragging along while

Nerdgasm: Pretty Code Editor

Written by Randi on October 10th, 2013 at 1:23 AM

I’ve used Notepad++ exclusively for about 2 years now. I just recently discovered how to change the theme and colors. I couldn’t be having a bigger nerdgasm right now. It’s so much prettier now. I was using the default theme until about 20 minutes ago. It’s so pretty. 8D If you *don’t* know or are too

I’m about to go ham on these furry little critters in my Animal Crossing town. They keep moving into spots  that aren’t supposed to be spots. This is what that area is supposed to look like. Eight flowers are arranged in groups around fruit trees at the North East side of my town. I also
