“This Week in Gaming” Or Something Less Catchy

Before anything else, let me say that yes, I’m aware that there’s a lot of pressure on me to “deliver the goods” now that the Internet’s only other gaming news site (Kotaku) is underwater thanks to that meteorological slut,  Hurricane Pecan Sandy.

News ’bout ‘dem Videyuh Gahms Week of October 22th, 2012

Feel free to make up your own theme song, I sure as hell don’t feel like doing it. What?  You feel like you’re already being tasked with doing all of the heavy lifting when you just came here to read an article and/or actually just look at the pictures? Fine.  You’ve still got to come […]

Watcha Playin, Guvnah? (May 2012)

‘ello poppit, it be your wee old uncle–” Fuck it, I can’t even do accents on paper. It’s about that time.  Actually, it is that time.  That time when we talk about the hobby I’ve invested the most time and money into, and however exactly its managed to make me yearn for the days of […]

Things That Are Apparently Going on or Something

Here’s a couple things, fellow gamers, that you might want to know about.  Or not.  Maybe you just don’t give a shit. 1.  Remember when you wanted nothing more than a 3DS so purple even Princes Prince would acknowledge its rightful place as the “Hue of Royals” and not just “that color girls are legally […]

What I’ve Been Playing 11-7-11

Anybody else notice how a couple days back it was 11-1-11?  Weird.  I mean, technically they’re not all “ones,” as you’d have to put in a zero to make it “11-01-11,” and it won’t be full of “ones” for a little over a week, but still…odd.  I mean, this sort of thing wont happen again […]

Gaming on a Budget

Some people are rich.  These people have enough money to buy mansions, boats that aren’t pronounced at all like they look on paper (like yachts) and sometimes other people.  These are also the sort of people that can afford to buy two of every video game that interests them, and preserve one of them for […]

Youtube Video of the Day 2-1-2011 (Lego Clone Wars)

Okay, in all honesty, for some odd reason, WordPress decided it would be cool (see: chach) when I “full-screened” the post to delete all of the text, and not give me any recover states, so my 600 word rant is now…at this point, a forty word explanation for why I lack that 600 word rant. […]

“The back-up’s entering the game”: A Review of Call of Duty: Black Ops

Let’s begin this review with a wee bit of unadulterated honesty, shall we?  (Note: This is not to imply that I regularly start most posts with dishonesty…just sometimes)  Let’s just air the proverbial “dirty laundry” and say what everyone’s thinking. *clears throat* Treyarch is the “B-team” of Activision’s “ever-rising money pit” known as the Call […]
