Netflix’s New Castlevania Series Looks Promising

The official Netflix Twitter account premiered a new trailer for their upcoming animated series based on the Castlevania franchise, which launches on July 7th. It certainly treads familiar territory, which is in no way a bad thing as a fan of the series.

CA! Radio Episode 126: Injustice of Predicting

This week, Chuck and I give our thoughts on the newly released DC fighter Injustice 2, Omar fills us in on the joys of PC exclusive Stellaris, and we take turns giving our E3 2017 predictions for each of the three major consoles.

Episode 126 is, in my opinion, our best work with the new hosting line-up. We’re working things out behind the scenes to narrow the length down to around two hours, while still fitting in meaningful conversations concerning our current gaming experiences and newsworthy talking points. Most of this is Chuck’s doing, as he records and edits in his spare time, and we couldn’t do it without him.

Sorry for the non-game related post today. Just thought I’d share a snapshot of my swollen eyebrow with the blogging fam.

CA! Radio Episode 125: Tales of the Open World


This week, Chuck, Omar, and I discuss the good and bad of open-world game design, disagree on just about everything, briefly touch on Cosmic Star Heroine, read Paul Novak’s letter to Omar concerning Mass Effect: Andromeda, and I defend Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’s excellence against Chuck’s wrong opinion of it being trash.

Many of the summer months throughout my middle and high school years were spent fully immersed in the stories of various SNES, Genesis, and PSone role-playing games, like Chrono Trigger and the Final Fantasy series. Without the stress of school, I could stay up late, remove myself from the worries and struggles of teenage life, and get lost in world-spanning adventures for a while.
