The SimCity That Never Sleeps

Yes, please.Click for big, pretty version.

I'm honestly really excited about SimCity's release on Tuesday, March 5. I was excited about it before since I've always loved the SimCity games, but after watching most of the live streams they have been doing this week on LetsAllBeMayor.com and … [Continue reading]

Lost in Space

Firefly

I'm on a partial space game kick right now. I tend to go through these phases after watching certain TV shows or movies. Like I'll watch "The Godfather" and then want to play a mob-based game, or see a western and want to play "Red Dead … [Continue reading]

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 … [Continue reading]

Back to Skyrim

Skyrim Awaits!

Recently, I got back into my Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game. It's been a long, hard road, let me tell you. The first game I played when I picked up the game back in November 2011 is no more. Sometime after about 40 hours of playtime, my hard drive … [Continue reading]

Now I Just Need Time

So, the Steam Holiday Sale is over and gone. It left a trail of destruction in its wake that has never been seen before. Ok, maybe that's an overstatement, but I did buy a lot more games than I thought I would (and probably should have.) But, as I've … [Continue reading]

Review: Endless Space

Endless Space

If only my bank account was an endless space. This is where I complain (really, cheer) about Steam's Holiday Sale. It feels like I've doubled my Steam library in the last week (and decreased my bank account in the process.) Though, even thought I did … [Continue reading]

Sideshow’s Songs of the Moment

Well, it's been a bit of a break, but I still listen to music so I thought I'd continue with my songs of the week...or at least as often as I can. I'll just rename it to Sideshow's Songs of the Moment. I've also moved on over to Spotify to embed the … [Continue reading]

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 … [Continue reading]

New Character Creation Commencing

20121208-162346.jpg

The day finally came after a bit of waiting. We logged into our "World of Real Life" account and created a new Level 1 Human. We decided to name him Xander Lee Zalewski. He finally logged in at 3:15pm on December 8th weighing in at 7lbs 4oz, carrying … [Continue reading]

Sweet Child o’ Mine

screenlg4

One of the things I think about as we raise our daughter (now 2) and have a son on the way (he's still taking his time) is how they will game and how we will game with them. It wasn't really something my parents did with us, mainly since video games … [Continue reading]
