Top 10 Gaming Memories

Hunt the Wumpus

I've been gaming for a long time now when I look back on it. The first games I was able to play were on either our Texas Instruments TI-99/4A or our Commodore 64. From those games until now, I've played all kinds of stuff, but for some reason these … [Read more...]

You Know You’re Old School When…

Netscape Navigator

I've been using the Internet for a long time now. I can officially say "long time" when it's been over 15 years. I've been "online" for even longer than that and using computers for even longer. Here are some "get off my lawn" moments for you young … [Read more...]

Has Gaming Prepared Us For Sleepless Nights?

D'awww

RL Screenshot Sunday: Children’s Week Announcement

6weeks

Sideshow and I have an announcement.  We feel it is time to share this news with everyone (and I suspect it will further explain my hiatus and reduced posting beyond all the work hullabaloo). We are -or rather, I am- expecting.  For those of you … [Read more...]

Hey look! It's a non-screenshot post today.  *crowd cheers* I've been meaning to write this post for quite awhile now.  It's content has changed a bit and the title has changed a lot since it started rattling around in my head. So, pull up a … [Read more...]

Disposable Heroes

Mass Effect 2

I finished Mass Effect 2 on Sunday night. It was an amazing ride and Bioware created an amazing game full of epic moments and a great story. This game was started from my Mass Effect 1 savegame using the import feature, so all of my major … [Read more...]
