Entering Into Minecraft

Not me, mind you. I've been casually playing Minecraft since probably around 2010. I'm talking about my 5-year-old daughter. She's finally to the age where she can play the game reasonably well (compared to just running around hitting things like my … [Read more...]

This post menaces with spikes of content

I spent a good 20 minutes trying to determine where and how to build a screw pump in my underground fortress so I could pump the standing water out of my first well cavern and into a new well cavern. Then I could retrieve the bodies of my fallen … [Read more...]

Diving In

Since the last post, I've spent a good chunk of Eve Online time training up my character to do some exploring. I have since spent a lot more time (almost all of my play time with that character) in low security space. I now have a T2 covert … [Read more...]

7 Years and 2 Ships

It's been at least 3 and a half years since I last ventured into the vast open darkness of Eve Online's universe. I was looking for a different kind of game to play recently, so I decided to renew my subscription and see what has changed. Since I … [Read more...]

I thought I'd do a little experiment with my gaming cost. Since I play 90% of the games on my PC using Steam, it keeps all of my gaming information in one place. I can see how much I played a specific game and also how much I paid for it (and its … [Read more...]

The Usual Suspects

There are a few game series that I will almost always keep buying as they release new games. The Assassin's Creed series is one of them. I almost didn't get the newly released Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag today. Up until Monday, I had assumed that … [Read more...]

GTA High Five!

I'm pretty excited about next Tuesday when GTAV releases. I mean, I've been in love with that series since playing the first, classic top-down Grand Theft Auto game back in about 1998 or so. I didn't play too much top-down GTA2, but GTA3 just blew my … [Read more...]

The Changing of Gaming Habits

My gaming habits have changed over the years, probably due to many factors including the amount of  time I have to play in one sitting and the explosion of niche and indie games. Based on my Steam statistics, you can see this change happening. I … [Read more...]

It’s Good to Be the King

Another Steam sale has come and gone and, as you know from past posts, I'm a sucker for those. This one was no exception, though I definitely didn't spend as much as I did during the last Holiday one. I did pick up a bunch of good titles that were on … [Read more...]

Keep On Truckin’

I've spent the last few days hauling lumber, coal and sometimes peas across Europe. You may openly mock me, I know I would have. I recently picked up Euro Truck Simulator 2 on Steam. I also have to admit picking up Farming Simulator 2013. The … [Read more...]
