As I might have made apparent before, I spend quite a bit of time on YouTube. The site can be quite a significant time sink and a general enemy of productivity, but there are a lot of channels that actually feel worth the time investment. They may show it in a lot of different ways, but these channels put their heart…
My son re-cut the intro for Sonic Adventure for Sonic’s 27th anniversary. He did this on his phone and spliced in some gameplay footage. He also used the prototype of “Open Your Heart” mixed with the original music track.
I regretted nothing back then; how times have changed.
Mario Tennis Aces released yesterday, a few weeks after its online tournament demo, and I’ve started delving into its Adventure (story) mode today. That first cumulative hour also happened to be done while in the New Jersey train system.
Indeed it does.
My fiancée recently quit her job as a nanny, and we’ve been doing a little bit of celebrating the last few nights.
Welcome to another exciting installment of Spacemon, the tale of a Pokemon TRPG campaign! This is a spinoff of the sci-fi space epic played using the Pokemon Tabletop United (PTU) system, this time GMed by yours truly. You can get caught up the entire Spacemon saga here!
Late last night, just before heading to bed, I saw the news that Pantera, Damageplan, and Hellyeah drummer Vinnie Paul had passed away. He was 54 years old. Pantera were one of the bands I listened to a lot when I first started getting into metal music, and it saddens me that another of their members has passed on.
Most Anime is adapted from a previous work, be Visual Novel or “regular” Manga. But, have you ever wondered what goes into that “conversion”?
Man, working in Fire Alpaca is sooo much slower than Photoshop. Even though the software is less resource intensive, the lack of shortcuts and not having vectors makes drawing a lot harder. When I draw interiors and buildings, I like to rely on drawing straight lines with the shift key, and smooth curves…
Playing video games with friend are pretty dang fun. It’s just so enjoyable to compete or share something you like with your friends. I would know, I just had a bunch of friends over this afternoon to break in Mario Tennis Aces and it’s past midnight already… opps.
Last weekend I downloaded the Octo Expansion for Splatoon 2. The DLC promised to be a robust single-player experience in a generally multiplayer focused series. That promise was upheld, but it left me wanting more. I finally felt like Splatoon had legitimately challenged me, like it has provided the experience that…
I know I’m stepping into some deep doo doo by making such a statement but I come bearing some evidence of my claims. I’ve not played 1.0 - Various aspects of it have gotten retconned but I’ll recognize that it has its defenders on the story and from what I hear, I likely would have enjoyed it more.
In which I had an idea, but someone beat me to it....so I wrote about something else instead.

I saw The Incredibles 2 last night, after an entire fourteen-year wait for this sequel—I was just about fourteen years old when I saw The first Incredibles at that—though those (positive) feelings may be in a different post yet. As per Pixar standard, however, there was also a short film before the main feature, and…
No BINGO for me, but no BINGO for Thatsmapizza either. Although Pizza still gets eight points versus my seven.
...ekt Red… CD Projekt Red… CD Projekt Red. I wonder how everyone pronounces the name. I should probably ask my polish friend to be sure. I’m sure Americans say “Cee Dee” but I say “Cay Day”.
It’s been a couple years since I began almost exclusively PC gaming. I was exclusively a console gamer for the longest time, but that changed when I started college pursuing a degree in game design. Given the field I was going into, having a powerful enough computer to run games was sort of a requirement. Plus I made…
