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

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! My family and I are starting to plan our cross-country move, so the weekend (and every weekend thereafter until October) will likely be spent going through our stuff in an attempt to downsize what we have to take with us. There are three of us and three cats living in … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

Happy Early Birthday to Me, Courtesy of TheDeviot!

While my birthday isn't until the 20th, fellow WordPress blogger and all-around swell guy @TheDeviot from CommaEightCommaOne sent me an early gift. He's been after me to play Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams for what feels like two years, and now I don't have an excuse. The Dragon's Milk is an 11% alcohol by volume chocolate … Continue reading Happy Early Birthday to Me, Courtesy of TheDeviot!

CA! Radio Episode 123: A Wild Drakulus Appears!

This week we invited our friend and fellow WordPress blogger Omar Jackson from Drakulus.com to discuss each of our 10 favorite games of the current console generation. If you follow his blog you'll know that Omar is primarily a PC and 3DS gamer, so naturally we brought him on for the wrong weekly Talking Point. But … Continue reading CA!

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

Friday! Video games! Let's talk! I have a busy few weeks coming up as the spring semester draws to a close, which essentially means tons of essay writing, last-minute homework assignments, and final exams. I'm not quite sure how much gaming I'll get in this weekend, but it sure won't be for a lack of … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?

Let’s Get Prepped for Four in February!

Four in February is an annual gaming event that encourages people to focus on their backlog, rather than spend money on new games. The objective, as the name implies, is to pick four games from the ol' backlog and complete them before the end of the month. This is something I look forward to participating in every … Continue reading Let’s Get Prepped for Four in February!

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

The weekend is finally upon us! What's on your agenda? Since the last weekend wrap-up, I've managed to finish Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. I was riding high on the game going in to chapter 5, but it committed the cardinal RPG sin of needlessly recycling content, puzzles, and boss fights for most of the remainder. … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend!

CA! Radio Episode 117: Feeling Nostalgic – Switch News, Nostalgia, and the Labor of Love of Self-Running a Game Site

Yesterday I joined Chuck Zodl from Counterattack Games to discuss our current gaming plans, the latest Nintendo Switch news, new games that make us feel nostalgic, and the labor of love that comes with self-running a small video game site in 2017. This podcast is something we're trying to make a regular weekly thing, schedules … Continue reading CA!

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

  It's Inauguration Day here in the States. What better day to escape in to the world of video games, right? How will you be spending your weekend? I'm sitting at the 45-hour mark in Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE on Wii U, having spent the last few mopping up side-quests, grinding out Stage Ranks, and … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend!

Nintendo Remains Innovative, Imaginative, and Out of Touch with the Switch

Now that I've had a few days to digest the recent Nintendo Switch presentation, I'd like to discuss its ups and downs as a core console gamer. One that grew up playing NES and SNES, felt a little burned by the Wii U, and wants nothing more than The Big N to return to form … Continue reading Nintendo Remains Innovative, Imaginative, and Out of Touch with the Switch

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

I stayed up late last night watching the Nintendo Switch presentation, but that's another post for another day. Later today, perhaps. I will say it's been a happy Switchmas, and with March 3rd looming in the distance, I'm more motivated than ever to tackle this backlog. What are your gaming plans this weekend? I'm in … Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend! So What are You Playing?
