I decided to buy a PSVR rig for the sole purpose of playing Skyrim in VR, and then promptly failed to play Skyrim in VR. I mean, yes, I loaded up the game and messed around a little, but then I got distracted by a bunch of other things. To be fair (to me, I … More Skyrim VR.
Antiheroes are often complex. Tormented. Conflicted. They don’t always play by the rules (or never play by the rules) and they often take the extreme route to a goal. And, let’s face it — watching them do their thing is usually waaaaay more fun than watching some hero swoop in, snatch up a bad guy, … More Marvel’s Spider-Man, first impressions.
It’s been a while since my last blog, and I think I figured out why. I write constantly. It’s just my thing, and always has been. It’s a stress reliever, a comfort, a necessity. Lately, I’ve been having a hard time with it, and it’s not just my blog that’s suffered. I can’t even focus … More Depression, Disneyland & the MCU.
*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.
