Obviously I have not written a blog in quite some time, so, I figured I might as well give you an explination. XD
Today is my 4-Year Anniversary with my special someone, BUT, she is busy hooking up our new 40' TV...and thus, I can write to you guys! Thanks to everyone that has been watching my videos. I have started to get comments on the most random videos I could imagine (obviously people want the Shiny Giratina but I also got comments on my LotGD playthrough as well...odd), and, on top of that, views have been going up a little bit.
As I have stated before...I don't expect to be famous. I don't expect to have a bunch of fans or followers...the things I do, I do as a hobby and just for fun...but, I am grateful for those that generally like my videos and find me somewhat entertaining.
But...I am getting off track.
For Christmas last year, I was really, really spoiled...and that meant that I got a whole bunch of new stuff which will aid me in continuing my videos and playing new games on my emulators. First of all, I got my gaming headset....I still have not figured out all the kinks. The audio still echoes really bad, and it does not like my video recorder...so we will eventually work all that out.
I also got an N64 controller that plugs into my PC so that I can play all the N64 games without so much complication (things I have been wanting to play for awhile but couldnt because controls were too wonky).
Lastly, I got Bioshock (Rapture Edition), Bioshock Infinite [Both are on the XBox so I wont be able to record them ], Final Fantasy IV for my DS, along with a few other games...AND:
That's right. Awesome Okami Decals for my 3DS to get me more pumped about the games I still need to beat, which leads me to the next point:
NEW YEARS RESOLUTION!
So, for New Years I decided that one of my many resolutions was to beat more video games. Unfortunately, I have the bad habit of getting stuck in games, then getting so frustrated that I quit the game right at the end, and just assume that (mentally) I have beaten this game. But, when I look at said-game later on, I feel guilty that I never beat it...but am too ashamed for having quit to pick it back up again.
Last year I started this resolution by picking up Final Fantasy 3 again (after I started it, could not find the Gnome Village) and then gave up. Right now I am over 30 hours into the game, all characters are level 60...I lost to the final boss at level 55, so I will be attempting the battle again very, very soon. I know that after I beat that game I already have another one in mind: "Okamiden".
I got this game the same time that Pokemon White came out (which was around my birthday). My g/f had reserved the game for me, so I got the cleaning cloth and the paintbrush stylus as well (my nice little added bonus). I loved Okami on the Playstation and had played it several hundred times over (no joke), so, this game was high on my priority list.
I got over 90% of the way through the game and then I got stuck...in a Temple. I could not solve the puzzles and it seems like I looked everywhere for answers (except online). I did not want to use a guide to help me with this game, so, I got frustrated, put the game down, and never picked it back up again. But after FF3, I am starting a new file and IT IS ON!!!
I promised a recording update...so here it is! I am still planning on playing AION, will get back to Guild Wars, and I am going to continue playing Final Fantasy (the first one) because we are already so close to beating it.
As far as old games go...like "Link's Awakening", "Pokemon Brown", and "The Final Fantasy Legend", I am just not feeling them right now. I might continue them someday, but as for right now, I have other things that I am more interested in. I hope you agree with these decisions. The only other thing I have planned will be my "Paper Mario" playthrough as well as an extra long video showcasing "Yoshi's Story".
Videos will be added to the video-section soon. So, if you're NOT following me on YouTube (why would you not be doing this?), you can watch all the videos here
That's all I go for now...so, until the next one. Have a nice day, everyone!

Sam Utari Blog: 11.17.2013
Absence & Shout-out
really sorry that I have not been on lately.
Believe it or not, the worst possible thing that could happen to a YouTuber/Gamer happened to me: the internet in my flat went out. I’m not really sure why…I have not been given the complete details, but, if you are seeing this blog, then the problem has been resolved and I can now crawl out of my cave and learn to walk upright again
But seriously…I am really, really sorry. I can’t say that this time away has not been wasted however…I recently (as of November 17th) came back from the city of Regensburg where I was spending time with one of my most favorite people in the world:
I’m not going to go into too much detail about it, but we explored the city, took a tour, and had a really good time checking out all the different sites and buying Christmas presents for our families and such.
Speaking of Christmas, I wanted to give a shout-out to one of the most amazing people that I know. Most people know Taz from all of my pictures on Facebook…and others know her from previous posts and maybe even know her in person. So, this person…she is one of the greatest friends I could ever have. Not only did she spend over $5,000 to help me get to Germany and stay here (while hassling with being homeless and trying to get my visa), she has been the best travel buddy for me, always ready for an adventure…and even when I am down in the dumps, missing home or whatever, this woman always brings a smile to my face.
Having lived with Taz for over 2 years, we always like getting each other really nice things for Christmas. I do not think a year has gone by where we have not spent at least $100 on each other. I remember that one year I helped her get into woodcrafting by buying her a widdling kit and some instructions booklets. In return she bought me a bunch of video games that I wanted, some batteries, and a few other goodies that I had asked for. But this year…this year has been really difficult when trying to buy each other something.
if this were back in the US, we would not have to worry so much about what we
get each other…but, being in a temporary living situation within another
Country makes things a little more of a chore. We can’t buy anything big that
can’t be shipped back home next year: no furniture, no instruments, nothing
that would not fit in a suitcase. Also there is a matter of location. Since she
is living in the barracks with other people, I cannot buy her anything that
might be considered a distraction or noise violation. Things that are messy are
also out of the question.
I would have bought her some new games, but not only does she not have a TV, but all of our game stations are back in the USA where we left them in storage since they could not be shipped to us.
All the new rules that apply to her also apply to me…so as you can see, Christmas had us in something of a bind. But this person…this wonderful person has 1-upped me again this year by getting me this:
The short version to this story is that my Mother promised to get me a 3DS for Christmas and then purchase “Pokémon Y” for me…altogether resulting in a $200 present that I might be lucky enough to actually get by Christmas. Well, as more and more of my friends got the game upon release, I finally told my Mom that it would just be better if she sent me the money for the game system (ASAP) and then I could buy the system on base and buy myself the game using my own money (because I was getting rather impatient with not owning it).
I played it out by saying that Amazon shipping took too long, would charge her a lot of Tax, and that I do not trust military shipping because Taz’s Christmas package arrived wet the year beforehand. My Mom was quick to agree that my idea made more sense, and after I assured her that I would still have a great Christmas without having anything to open, she said she would send me the money as soon as she could and that would be that.
told Taz this idea (about me getting the money and then buying a new system and
etc etc), she was browsing around the military’s version of “craigslist” when
she saw that a soldier was selling his new 3DS along with some games for only
He said there was nothing wrong with the system…he just did not have the time for it, and figured he could just use the money instead. The games were not listed, but already this was a great deal. A new 3DS with over 8GBs of memory to it would go for over $167 at the base PX (without tax)…then you would have to find games for it which would amount to more $$$ being spent. But, this guy was selling his system and all the games he owned for $150 which made this a super sweet deal.
So…Taz, being the super sweet woman that she is, figured she would buy the system and games for me, then I would still have the $50 leftover to get the Pokémon game I wanted so that I was not spending my own money to get the rest of my Christmas. Originally the guy said he had Ocarina of Time and Mario Kart for the 3DS…even though it was only 2 games, they were awesome ones, and I was super excited. But, if you look at the picture…not only did this guy give me the system, I got:
1. 1. Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of Starry Skies
2. 2. Pokémon: SoulSilver Version
3. 4. New Super Mario Bros.2 (Already on World 3 of 6)
4. 5. Super Scribblenauts
5. 6. Scribblenauts Unlimited
6. 7. Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics
7. 8. Goldeneye 007
8. 9. Mario Party DS
9. 10. Super Mario 3D Land
Unfortunately he could not locate Ocarina of Time or Mario Kart…but he swore that the minute he found them, we could have them. He does not live too far from Taz, so hopefully he will locate them soon
But before I got the system and all these cool things, I made Taz a deal. I told her that if she spent this $150 on me and made this my Christmas gift, that I would not only pay her back the $150 to get her something nice for Christmas, but, the $200 that I got from my Mom could then be donated to our joint Savings account in case of an emergency or something like that (Taz is huge on saving lots of money, so this works). Taz was a little skeptic at first…but then she agreed.
There are a couple reasons why this is funny. First reason is because the guy gave me his SoulSilver Version. I already own HeartGold…but, the reason this is funny is because Taz said she would never EVER buy me a Pokémon game (she thinks they are dumb). The guy never listed all of his games, so, it was super hilarious when he handed them all to me, and SoulSilver was in the bunch. Without knowing it she had basically broken a promise to herself, and I chuckled about it all the way back to her room.
second reason why all of this is funny is because Taz told me she did not want
anything big for Christmas this year. So, as we were in the PX, she would not
accept the money I had promised her, and so, I went to go see if they had
“Pokémon Y” in stock…
…after waiting forever at customer service, the guy that ran the electronics section finally came up to me with Pokémon White 2 and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, asking me if any of these was the game I had wanted. Feeling defeated I went back to Taz, practically forced the money in her hand, disappeared to go look at other games, and upon my return, she has already put down $80 of the money I had given her on a 40” TV that a guy was selling. Lol!
this weekend it has been all wins for the both of us…
I finally got my 3DS and some awesome-ass games to boot, Taz will be getting a pretty big TV so she can finally get a game system and have something to do while on base, and before all that…I got to go on adventures with the person I love and cherish! So it’s all good!
I guess that’s all the news I have right now…oh…and did I mention this guy downloaded a 3D Pokedex on his 3DS? Tee-hee!
Anyways, I hope to have new and exciting updates soon! Until next time then…
Have a nice day, everyone!

You read the title, right?!
So...the internet went out in my flat last month, and why it tok so long to get it back up and running, I will never know. But, the time away from the webs has not been all bad, being away has given me time to breathe, play some old games that I love, record a huge mass of things for you guys, as well as write a bunch of blogs which I can now begin to post on a semi-regular basis.
I have a longer blog about my absence and etc. But for now, I just want to get down to the important things so that you are up-to-speed with what will be going on with my YouTube uploads, site updates, and etc.
- Recording Update(s):
--- So I have a few new games for you. I have recently started uploading "Final Fantasy I", the remake for the GBA. Currently I have 6 episodes recorded and will continue to play this game because I love Final Fantasy. Obviously, I still want to play Guild Wars, and I am excited that I can get back to that as soon as possible.
---The next new playthrough that I have is "Paper Mario" which is one of my favorite games from the N64 era of gaming
This game holds significance to me in many ways, so I cannot wait to share it with you.
---Lastly, I have done the first video for another MMO by NCsoft called "AION". and along with that I recorded another Pokemon Brown video and the Shiny Giratina video from the event in October.
- Site Update(s):
---As soon as a good majority of the new videos have been posted, I will be re-doing my video-section of this website. I am going to see if it is within my memory ;imit to make separate playlists, and if not, then you will just have to deal with the mass of chaos that there is for right now. Idk...should not be too bad.
So yeah...that's really all I have for right now. I have been posting on Facebook a lot about being gone. But, for those that follow me on Twitter, I have not been posting at all just because I really don't have many followers on there. I ask that you be patient with me as I try and get everything uploaded and get back to speed with things.
Thanks for reading and paying attention. I will hopefully see you soon in the next blog.
Have a good day, everyone.

I realize that I have not posted o the direct website for awhile, and, the reason being is because it is just so much easier to access my Facebook rather than get on here and type things. Still, I do apologize for what seems to be a lack of interest in this section...its only because my life (as of late) has been extremely crazy.
I don't really want to go into too much detail about it...but I have been suffering very deeply from depression. Between being homesick and missing the USA to the issues with my current relationship of 3+ years I really dont have the motivation to do much of anything. Still, I make videos because on some days it seems like the only thing that has been keeping me sane. With that said...I will add that I am still trying to get up videos on a constant basis. Obviously my Guild Wars playthrough has become something of my main priority while all other series have been put on hold.
I do want to get back into blogging and try and do a couple of blogs every week if I can...but most of the time I'm just not sure what to write about.
As of right now I am currently uploading part 9 of the Guild Wars Playthrough. I have part 10 ready for uploading as well and will be recording part 11 tonight (hopefully). Then we will be done with the tutorial part of the game and onto the main thing where shit finally gets real.
Thanks to everyone that has stuck through with me as I go through these random upload schedules and etc. I really appreciate it. But yeah...site updates will be up soon. Have a nice day everyone!

Galrath --- Kryta Quests
As I had mentioned in the previous blog, I was trying to make a time where I could get online with my best friend (who is still in the US) so that we might play Guild Wars on my main account, and really, just have a good 'ole time together like we used to back in High School.
Anyways, last night we were online for over two hours, running here, there, and everywhere...but the one mission my friend picked out for us to do was called: "The Villainy of Galrath".
Those of you who are familiar with the Prophecies series of the old Guild Wars would know that this is a Kryta quest and is part of the White Mantle Missions you are given in Lion's Arch. Basically, you are sent across the map to hunt down Galrath who has been terrorizing villagers, and he is hiding out in the Wizard's Tower.
The Wizard's Tower itself spans out across 2-3 different areas with only 2 small town's along the way (or on the side---those two being Beetlerun and Temple of ages).
To make a long story short, this quest has never been my favorite. The minute my friend (Nenel) suggested it, I shuddered. Why? Because I have never completed that quest myself. It's not because I suck at Guild Wars...o-okay so, maybe I do...but in all actuality, while the game advertises itself as something that can be played solo using NPCs in your party, truth-be-told, the NPCs are shit, and really, they do that on purpose because the game is so hard that it practically forces you to team up with another human being.
I have been attempting this quest for the past 2 years, going through 2 different character builds just to see if that would make a difference. But, this area and the monsters that greet you before you even come close to the Wizard's Tower ---- it's a bag of RAPE. No joke.
There is one spot where you run into a horde of Ettins, Oakhearts, AND Fen Trolls all mixed together in one big mess. Then, when you finally make it to the Wizard's Tower, you are surrounded by hordes of high-level spellcasters of all different specialties.
My friend has also attempted this quest with only NPCs (Heroes and Henchmen) and met the same fate I did --- too much death penalty to actually get anywhere after awhile.
But, after an hour or so, her and I completed the mission without many problems at all. We got lost about 3 times, she died twice, and then we kicked Galrath's ass. Simple as that.
But the reason I am writing this is because the video is FINALLY on YouTube and it will also be added to this site in the "Videos" section // which brings me to my next point...
Videos will be put on the site to get everything updated. I believe I am added this segment of Random Guild Wars fun, and also the 3rd installment of the Guild Wars Playthrough to the mix.
Also...as far as "site updates" go, I am currently working on 2-different blogs. I am working on a gaming review for Guild Wars as well as doing a semi-review/versus blog between Pokemon White versus White V2 (since I have set down my mission to fill the dex in White to work on the story in White2 and finish the game before I get Y-version).
Those will hopefully be up very shortly...but again (going to ym last point), my girlfriend will be over this weekend which means I will not be posing any videos. I know that I have not played Pokemon Brown and etc in quite some time. I plan on playing some of that on Monday unless I do another GW episode. While I am trying to juggle my games instantly, I find that I am drawn to do things with the games I already know moreso than I am to play the games I am quite unfamiliar with.
Plus, the GW-bits are a bit longer and hold more people's attention-methinks.
Either way, leave me a comment telling me what YOU would rather see me work on more. I always like feedback on the things I do (both good and bad), so don't be afraid to tell me. That's really all I had to say about this, so...I guess, until next time?
Have a nice day everyone!!!

Sorry that I have not been updating this lately...but, working this early shift has really been kicking my ass. Not to mention that a Union is trying to get involved and get everyone to Strike...which really, really, sucks and makes things all the more complicated on my end.
Soooooooo...where to begin?
I guess I will start with recording updates:
I hope you all got to tune into the mass upload that I did last week. You got a whopping 4 videos including a new Sam-Talks and you even got the newest episode to the "Link's Awakening" playthrough.
On top of all that...I redid all of the Tabs for the videos to make everything look a little more professional and ten times as neat. Hopefully this will make my Channel all pretty, and perhaps there will be at least 1 person that actually cares that I did that (and appreciates the effort) *rolls eyes*.
But as far as recording goes...my computer is acting dumb again. I deleted all of my Pokemon photos and on top of that, I erased a lot of programs from my laptop to keep it from overheating...still, this seems to be a major problem. Using Skype, YouTube, and Camstasia make it all the more worse, so, as far as playing an video games, I'm not really sure what to do. But, what I have been doing rather than paying video games is doing more of the "Sam Talks" series.
I recently just finished a promotion video for my "Pokemon Rare League" on Facebook...I will be working on another one about some eBay games I purchased tomorrow, and then I am debating on whether I want to read my other Pokepasta called "Decisions" or whether I want to make an opinion video on "Mega Evolution".
I'm still not sure...so please, please, please leave me a comment and let me know what you want to see
Every time that I post a video from now on, I want to try and do a blog explaining the video's extra stuff that I normally do not get to record....maybe just make a post saying that the video is up and give you a brief description of what you might be watching.
...okay, so, the last thing I want to mention is "site updates".
Again, this is nothing fancy...I just wanted to let you all know that I have updated the Videos-section of the website again so that you can get all my current videos on this site with the link to their spot on YouTube.
That's all I have for now...but I hope to be posting more in the future if I have time.
Have a nice day everyone!

...sorry about being gone for so long.
You will not believe what all I have been through trying to fit in work, my relationship, and all the things that come with being in a new flat (changing my address legally, changing my visa, and etc etc).
Anyways...since you all have been so patient with me, I decided that on Friday, when I have the free time I will give you all a treat and do a huge video upload! Now, recently my internet has been acting up pretty badly and shutting down for hours at a time due to really bad weather conditions where I live. I'm hoping things have cleared up by Friday...but if not, then I am not sure what I am going to do,
Either way, I hope to have a few things up for you. I am currently working on another episode of Pokemon Brown, I have a new episode of Link's Awakening (FINALLY) that I am working on and should have together by tomorrow night (at the latest). I also have 2 episodes ready of "Legend of the Green Dragon" tutorial's that I can post online when I feel fit...
AND, I might just do one more thing and post up a "Sam Talks" if I really, really, really get the time for it.
Some more things I will be starting/doing will be some more "Mia Travels" on my main Channel. Right now, I only have the one video from the time I visited Dachau Concentration Camp (which was this year in August). I think that I want to have a few more videos up before I make a bigger deal on the whole "Mia Travels" series. So yeah...we will see. I was debating on whether another website would be appropriate...
I mean, I do have another blog dedicated strictly to my traveling, so, maybe I will just stick to posting there and leave you a link when something new comes out (just in case you are interested)?
When we get more people to view this site, this Channel, and to leave feedback where necessary, I would really like to do a Q&A. Maybe it's just becaise I like talking about myself, but, I think it would be interesting to see what people want to ask me and why
Oh, oh, oh...and before I forget...I am going to Oktoberfest this weekend!!!! So yeah.
That, and, after this weekend, I am back on early shift and working on the weekends. As if my video schedules are not random enough as it is, they will be worse when I am having to wake up at 4am every morning
...I will be editing the video section of this site before I go...but just thought I would let you know what has been up. I have been posting on Facebook and Twitter, but have been pretty silent here as of late.
Anyways...I hope to see you all on Friday!!!
Have a nice day everyone!

Sorry I have been away for awhile. I remember telling people that I would go away for the weekend, but, here it is on Wednesday and I had yet to be heard from *sigh*. Honestly, traveling around with my girlfriend usually tuckers me out. She is always go, go, go....and while I love traveling and seeing new things, well, I'm just more of a homebody and like to take a day and just relax every once in awhile. You know?
I travelled with her last weekend too, and now I have a new blister on my foot to add to the family. It was bleeding and puring liquid so bad, I had to make a toe tampon just to make it stop. Sorry for the visual, but it's true!!! Anyways...for those wondering, the weekend was really really fun and enlightening. First we spent our Friday in a little town called Nordlingen (located on the Romantic Road in Germany --- look it up). We went and saw the Gothic Cathedral of St.George and got to climb to the top of the Bell Tower!
Then on Saturday, we went to the Concentration Camp Dachau...not the most fun experience in the World, but, very educational though it is really, really tragic.
If you guys are interested in seeing pictures of the places where I travel, please let me know and I will gladly give you guys a few pics every once in awhile
Then on Sunday, we partied at the local bars! Nothing crazy on my part (or my girlfriend's), we just watched everyone else get stupid. But, it was fun either way. As long as no one got in a fight or got arrested, you can easily say that it was a good weekend.
Back on track to videos...I really, really, really want to play Pokemon Brown some more. So, since I only have one day off this week (Sunday) and I have not had any videos this week thus far, I'm going to try and do something nice for you guys. My goal is to wake up at a decent time, clean my flat, and then record 2 episodes of Pokemon Brown for your enjoyment. That's right...2.
Now, if circumstances do not allow me to advance in Brown for 2 whole episodes, I might just give Link's Awakening another go...either that or I will find some other way to make up my lack of activity.
HEY!!! A shout out to those who actually visit my website! I check out my Stats every so often on here to see who all watches my videos to the end or reads the descriptions and you guys are awesome!!!! Over 100+ views. Woooooooo!!!!
Maybe I'll make a special video just for that? Who knows...
Either way, keep it up. I love knowing that people get on here to read about my life and etc. I also love the fact that people take the time to figure out who I am.
Anyways...last but not least, I was thinking of changing up the SamUtari channel a bit. While it's main theme will always be gaming, as someone with so many different hobbies, I was really considering doing alternate versions of 'Sam Talks' and maybe include some of my other hobbies like drawing, painting, building, or Airsoft? What do you all think? Please let me know if you would find it cool to see more than just 'gaming' on the SamUtari Channel.
For now...that is all from me. This person needs to get into bed and prepare for another long day at work.
Thanks for reading and, have a nice day everyone

Pokemon Brown (Episode 3) has now been put up.
Now all I have to do is grind and level up my Pokemon to prepare for Episode 4. Hopefully I will then be able to take down the first Gym Leader. So far this game has been pretty tough **SPOILER ALERT** I mean, I got my ass handed to me by a lv.9 Jigglypuff.
Still, I'm trying not to be so critical of the game and just enjoy it for what it is. It is challenging, unfamiliar, and has been really fun thus far (even though I have accomplished little to nothing).
But, as the title of this blog clearly states, on Thursday I will be off to Vilseck to spend the weekend with my girlfriend. We are hitting the Romatic road in Germany and picking out some nice towans to visit. Nothing too huge, we just want to get lost for a few days, take some pictures, and enjoy each others' company. Perhaps I will even post some photos on here so that the photos section is not so bland. lol.
With me being over to visit my woman, I will not have time for recording on the weekend, but, now that I am fully moved into my new place (finally), that should not stop me from being able to record during the week while I am still on the early shift. But again, that all depends on how much time I have to level up my Pokemon in BROWN
Lastly...I mentioned "site updates" in the categories above.
While it is not very much, this website does bring in some traffic from time to time. Because of this, I wanted to make the site more appealing, and so, my intro video will be posted on the front page. While for some this will cause an unnecessary lag that they will hate me for, for others it will catch their attention and maybe convince them to watch more of my videos.
That's all for now, but make sure you tune back to this blog tomorrow. If you missed my "Sam Talks // YouTube" episode then it will be posted here. All you small-time YouTubers like me will really like what I have to offer. I promise.
Also...the videos section on here will be updated with any and all new videos that I have.
Have a nice day everyone!

Hey guys, Sam Utari here...
Sorry for being absent lately. My problem is that I am moving to a new city this month, and between that and work, I have not had much time to do any recording. That, and, I have a terrible, terrible cold which has me outta whack over here. I tried to record some Zelda and then I just kept coughing and then dying, and was all sluggish, and it sucks.
Either way, I am currently stuck on Zelda and it is bothering me. I think I might have to look up where to go because I am totally out of ideas when it comes to finding the nightmare key. Like, I know it should probably be in the Skeleton Room, but, I have no way of locating it AND when I got the bright idea to use my compass...well, it's a key item and I can't really figure out how to make it work ^^;;
Sooooo...in light of that I have decided that I was going to take today to look at some new games that I could play. I was surprised when I stumbled across one of my favorite series which is "Tomba". Now, my history with Tomba is that I got the second game when I was in Middle School (from a drug shop lol). I beat the game in two weeks and was totally hooked on it, loved it to death and have played it multiple times since. BUT, I have NEVER beaten the first game and just recently found the first game at a Disc Replay last year and bought it for $70.00 ---
It's another one of those series that was a one-hit wonder and you either loved it or hated it.
Personally I have not beaten the first one, could easily breeze through the second one BUT, I will go ahead and play them in order and hopefully the emulator I am using is not too hard to figure out. I'm starting to think I should really buy a controller for my PC but as of right now, that's not really an option for me T^T
But, that's really all on my end. Basically, besides playing Zelda and starting on Tomba um...I want to make more Pokepasta reads (once my throat gets better) and then do more SamTalks // next one should be on "Gamer Logic" and if I am lucky, I might just have a special guest to help me out with that little segment.
Have a nice day everyone!
