I’ve been awfully negative on the blog lately, so thought I’d better talk about things I AM enjoying, Assassin’s Creed Rogue being one of those things. But first I have to eat some crow. When Microsoft announced backwards compatibility for the Xbox One I kind of scoffed. Everyone was losing […]

I’ve been thinking this for a while but haven’t had the intestinal fortitude to say it out loud since it’s like saying I hate puppies or kittens or something. I regret purchasing the Nintendo Switch. I’ll credit Scopique at Levelcapped for giving me the courage to say it out loud! […]

Today Epic Games announced new quests coming to Fortnite, but there’s a catch. In order to get these quests you have to watch someone streaming the game on Twitch. OK technically you have to be logged into a device that has Fortnite streaming…no one is forcing you to stare at […]

Fortnite throws some terms around that can get confusing. Survivors and Squads both seem to have multiple meanings and initially I’d get kind of lost in all the survivor types and squad types. Today I want to talk about Survivor Squads. Since Fortnite is down I’m going to try to […]

When Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild came out a few months ago, it got rave reviews from both the critical press and from my friends. Everyone seems to LOVE Breath of the Wild and people are still talking about it. By any objective measure I can think of, […]

Yesterday I landed on an article at Polygon, What Zelda: Breath of the Wild gets so right, explained in 20 minutes. It was basically promoting a video on why Zelda: Breath of the Wild is “The Best Game Ever” (though apparently that’s the name of a series of videos so […]

I bought Wolfenstein: The New Order a long time ago but didn’t play it much because it made me motion sick. That was before I upgraded the TV and the PS4. I’m not sure if it’s the lower input lag on the new TV or the ‘boost mode’ of the […]

I just this morning realized that a recent update to the blog caused comments to stop working. If you’ve tried to comment recently and your comment didn’t show up, I apologize. It wasn’t intentional, and it should be fixed now.
