It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! Not a lot of gaming time for me this week, but I did manage to click my way through the first chapter of the PC adventure game The Journey Down and even got a review up.

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! All of my classes this semester, unfortunately, have due dates during the weekend. So unless I manage to cram everything out during the week, I don't have a lot of time for gaming until Monday rolls back around. That didn't happen this week, but I definitely plan on making the … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! After about 5 or 6 hours with Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, fatigue began to set it. I was enjoying the combat, being a diet XCOM of sorts, but nothing else felt very rewarding. Exploring nooks and crannies typically awarded concept art and other uninteresting things to view in the … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

A Mid-Year Backlog Update

As of this posting, I'm currently sitting at 28 games completed for 2017 -- far more than I anticipated. I started off the year committed to chipping away at my backlog, and outside of a handful of new releases and reviews, I've done just that. Go me. With June coming to a close, I wanted … Continue reading A Mid-Year Backlog Update

[REVIEW] Adventuring to Syberia 15 Years Late

As someone who never had a PC that was capable of running anything other than World of Warcraft on the lowest setting until 2010, I was mostly oblivious to the point-and-click adventure genre. Over time, I made friends who were heavily into games like Indiana Jones, Leisure Suit Larry, and Police Quest, but I've just always been … Continue reading [REVIEW] Adventuring to Syberia 15 Years Late

It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I just finished an insanely busy week of school-related stuff, so I haven't had time to play much of anything. I've mainly been jumping into the occasional Overwatch match in hopes of securing a few of the new Uprising event skins and poses. Sadly, I haven't had much luck. Things … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
