Well we’ve made it through 1/12th of 2017. Huzzah for us I guess. This month I tried an experiment: setting up a list of gaming goals to aim for. I feel like I did pretty good: 1) Get the last achievement in Microsoft Solitaire. Did that. 100% complete. I am […]

Not just one, but two sets of game end credits rolled this weekend. Actually they both rolled on Sunday. Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered, and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

One of my “gaming goals” for January was to keep up my weekly Fairy Fencer F and No Man’s Sky sessions. Thursday night was No Man’s Sky night and since last night was the last Thursday in January I’ve hit that goal. But I think I’m now done for a […]

I’m old enough to remember the first moon landing. What a time that was. Every kid wanted to be an astronaut. We drank Tang and ate Space Sticks and anything that was freeze dried. We built plastic models of the lunar module. It was the start of a bold new […]

One of my gaming goals for this month is to finish the story mode of Diablo 3. I’m trying but my god is it a terrible game. Now before my Diablo 3 loving readers come gunning for me, I’m talking specifically about the story mode that you have to clear […]
