Because I am a sucker, I pre-ordered Star Wars Battlefront 2, so I got into the beta on Wednesday (it’s open to everyone starting Friday). The first game took a beating but honestly I had some good fun with it for a while, but mostly I was interested in #2 […]

After reading Isey’s post, I was talking on Twitter about how this passage (which I had to trim down for Twitter) resonated with me: I know people are enjoying it and I admit that I am too – but the nagging thought that we have all been part of a […]

After my last post about being ‘stuck’ in Destiny 2 I watched this video: Towards the end the author talks about how to get unstuck: 1) Create a new character of the same class 2) Level it to 200 before doing the campaign 3) Swap all your best gear from […]

One of the things I wished for from Destiny 2 was more things for solo players to do. My wish was granted, I just need to be better about making wishes. I should have wished for more things to do AND a good reason to do them. You see, I’m […]

A couple of days ago I wrote a ‘damning with faint praise’ kind of post about Destiny 2, saying it was fine. At the time I was level 11 or 12 and working through the campaign. I still haven’t finished the campaign but I’m pretty close to the end, and […]

Even though I now live in the south where summer starts in March and ends sometime after Christmas, I grew up using Labor Day as my end of summer marker (helps that I lived in a resort town and all the summer residents went back to wherever they came from […]

[I originally had this post scheduled for lunchtime on August 23rd but for some reason it never posted. So I’m posting it now!] Yesterday [accurate when this was supposed to post!] Uncharted: The Lost Legacy launched. For some reason my brain has decided that means the “holiday season” has arrived […]

This afternoon I finished up the storyline of Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. I was a little confused and baffled by the fact there were no ending credits, but after a while of looking for the next ‘story’ mission, I checked google and this seems to be the way it goes. As […]
