*Spoilers for Final Fantasy XV and Far Cry 5 ahead, though I’ll try to keep it vague. I’m one of those: I hadn’t played a Final Fantasy game since Final Fantasy VII, a game that came out 21 bloody years ago (good grief, I’m old). I remember being irritated by the sheer number of games … More Final Fantasy XV wrecked me.
I have a fairly ginormous (and totally ubiquitous) post for Far Cry 5 in the works, but though I’ve taken videos and screenshots galore, I’m still… well, too busy actually playing the game. There was one unexpected side effect, though. I installed the game on both my desktop and my gaming laptop, mostly because I’ll … More Graphic obsession.
I’m at 60+ hours and counting on my latest Fallout 4 playthrough, and it feels like I’ve completely lost sight of the main quest. Settlers, amirite? Never satisfied. Feed us, defend us, whine whine whine… Meanwhile, Preston Garvey is always prattling on about proving that the Minutemen are reliable and will help to make … More Heroes & pooper scoopers.
After what happened on Friday, I’ve realized that I’m going to have to change the way I write posts. Until now, I was drafting in WordPress, trusting it to save as I went along. Mostly, that worked out well. Occasionally, there would be a problem, and I’d get a nice red notification at the … More Ergonomics: It’s not us, it’s you.
I love that feeling you get when you replay an older game — one you haven’t touched in a while — and rediscover all of the ways in which it was (and still is) totally awesome. For example, I recently got The Operative: No One Lives Forever running again. Yes, the graphics are dated. Yes, … More The twisted world of Fallout 4.
Blog fail. Apparently, something has gone haywire somewhere, because I’ve had a hell of a time not getting securi-booted out of WordPress lately. Très bogus. Knock it off! Teaching them to open doors was only the first step. Now we’re teaching the robots to disobey and resist?! What the hell are they thinking? On the other … More Killing time, Overwatch, & more bad robots.
Am I the only person… *Spoilers for the latest episode of Legends of Tomorrow. Like many, I was waiting eagerly for the next episode of Legends because omfgzomg, Constantine! It would be nice (I’ve said this before) if they’d just get a fucking clue and bring him back somewhere on a regular basis, but hey … More Random Friday: Bad shipping, bad users, & bad machines.

Who needs a random Friday when you just had a Thursday like that one? Last night’s episode of Supernatural had some good stuff in it, but it was nothing compared to the mind-blowing last ten seconds. The show just tossed a grenade into the room and then ran away. *Spoilers for the 2/8 episode of … More Supernatural Friday: Holy last-second reveals, Batman!
