Nostalgia is a funny thing. Sometimes it’s there to back up those feelings that you’ve held true for so many years. Other times it’s a lie that has warped your perspective of what a fun time it really was.

I listen to a ton of podcasts. 40 different shows and counting. I don’t always listen to every episode, typically I’ll skip around and listen to something I’m in the mood for. Other times, there are shows that I’ll binge listen to an entire season, I guess you could call it, in just a few days. Other shows I listen to weekly. Continue reading Pay to Continue→
Putting your personal email address out of the internet braves strange results. Especially if that email is tied to an indie game review site. You get to meet a whole mess of interesting individuals from all parts of the country. I’ve spoken to developers out of different parts of the US and Canada, India, Brazil, Russia, and China.

Many of them were in some great games but for whatever reason, their character didn’t take off. One of those mascots was known simply as Wonderboy.
I hate Playstation 4’s Bloodborne by FromSoftware. I hate it. I really do. When I was looking at joining the current console generation, I always look to what games are exclusive to the platform because that’s what really separates the two for me. Being a big fan of Nintendo, where basically every game is exclusive to its platform, and a powerful gaming PC, it almost seems pointless to own any current generation console with the exception of convenience of playing on a large TV or for exclusives. I came close to the Xbox One mainly for the tug at my retro gaming heartstrings with Rare’s release of Rare Replay. A single disc 30 game collection of classic games from Rare’s past including Banjo-Kazooie, Battletoads, Blast Corps, and Perfect Dark. It was a close call. But ultimately what pulled me to the PS4 was Bloodborne.
