Fri--er, oops. Saturday. Video games. Let's talk anyway! My family and I have been incredibly busy this week and we're having another garage sale this morning, so I completely spaced putting up a Freakin' Weekend post while it was actually Friday. Not a lot of free time this weekend, so what little I do have... Continue Reading →
Friday (the 13th)! Video games! Let's talk! I'm still mostly playing World of Warcraft, trying to get Legion flying unlocked. I hit level 110 (the current max) on my Blood Elf Warlock, finished off the Suramar campaign yesterday, and still have a ways to go before I can take flight in the Legion zones. There's...

There are PSP, PS2, PS4, 360, Xbox One, Gamecube, and Wii games on the list, and if there's anything in there you're interested in just let me know here or on Twitter.... Continue Reading →
My girlfriend, my mother, and I are planning to move from South Carolina to Washington this fall, and cross-country moves are fucking expensive. Who knew?!

I'm pushing about 53 hours played and just started chapter 7 of 10 before going to bed last night. It was smooth sailing until a couple of days ago when my progression was blocked by a skill check...

The developer of Shadow Bug reached out to me in hopes of covering their game, but I was a bit too busy. Thankfully, my friend The Well-Red Mage stepped in and reviewed it for me instead! Reliable friends are great.

How much do new ways to play matter?
You decide for yourself how much any subject matters, but in the context of gaming, innovation is a key player. Without it, we’d still be stuck moving white blocks around on a black screen trying to knock a smaller bouncing block past our opponent. Whether the innovation is successful in its execution or not, that’s a consideration separate from the evaluation of the importance of innovation itself.

Developer 10tons Ltd. has been rabidly supporting the Nintendo Switch, but it's safe to say that originality isn't their strong suit. Recently, they've put forth a slew of top-down twin-stick shooters in JYDGE, Time Recoil, Neon Chrome, and Crimsonland. And while their latest, most ambitious release Tesla vs. Lovecraft certainly falls into that category as well,... Continue Reading →
Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I haven't done much in the way of gaming this week since my girlfriend and I have been using our time to catch up on new movie releases via Red Box. We checked out Jumanji (way more fun than I expected), Thor Ragnarok (Guardians-levels of good), Justice League (watchable, but... Continue Reading →
