And the big news is… Red Dead Redemption 2 has been scheduled for release on October 26th. That’s much later in the year than most of us had hoped, but what are you going to do? March on Rockstar and demand an earlier release date? Wait… actually… Yeah, maybe not. According to Rockstar, it will … More Random Friday: RDR2, PUBG, & replayability
It’s finally been confirmed for realz: BioWare is officially working on the next Dragon Age game (which probably won’t be called Dragon Age 4, but who cares?) We already sort of knew this, but the company wasn’t making with the official info. I’ve been pulling together threads in my head ever since Dragon Age: Inquisition. … More My Dragon Age 4 theories
Eve Online is the best game I’ve never played. I love hearing stories about Eve Online. I’ve never installed, let alone played, the game, and I don’t intend to. Ever. Here’s the thing: what I know about Eve Online makes me think that my temperament plus this game would equal disaster. You know how you … More Games I love, but don’t even play. It’s a thing.
With Deadpool 2 looming on the horizon, I’ve been thinking about Deadpool in general lately. Let’s get one thing straight, though: we will not be discussing the abomination that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine. M’kay? Moving on.

Statik Institute of Retention. Or, “That really messed-up place I woke up in.” Statik is a PSVR puzzle game that’s been out there a while. I’m still trying to cherry-pick my VR experiences, and this one came up at the top of a lot of lists. Statik explains nothing to you at the beginning, and … More Random Friday: Statik, shitholes & marital memory failures.
Lego my brain. I have a lot of Lego games. Which is kind of dumb, because all Lego games are basically the same game with different skins, right? More or less, anyway. Smash everything in sight, collect things, whack on the bad guys, occasionally solve puzzles, frown every time you have to pass something by … More Random Friday: Lego smashing, Thumper, and gaming gear.
When it comes to VR and the possible physical side effects, I apparently rolled double sixes. Or I’m holding a full house. Or… some other words that mean, “I got lucky.” No sweats, no nausea, no balance issues, no problem. It’s a bit of a double-edged sword, because the result is that I grew almost … More Virtual adrenaline
Some random thoughts about Persona 5. *Light spoilers for a few things in the first bit of the game (all occurring before July, game time), namely: comments about a specific character’s likeability and how another character treats him; a character’s outfit, and detail-free comments about the bits of the protagonist’s past that you learn at … More Random Friday: Stuff about things, & Nick Fury saves the day.
