Ah, Microsoft

UPDATE:  Microsoft has reversed itself again.  Tables will now import, but launch has been delayed to implement this.  Another win for gamers, but another unnecessary PR body blow for Microsoft. The original post follows: Microsoft came off a pretty good E3.  Many were wondering if they’ve turned the corner.  I may be wrong, but this …

30 Hours

I think I’ve discovered something about my gaming habits.  I seem to have  a limit of about 30 hours for a game to hold my attention.  I say about since it’s clearly affected by the quality of the game.  So a great game can hold me the full thirty, but an average effort will be …

Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn

I had been meaning to pick up Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3, but it got hard to find.   For a while people were asking outrageous prices.  The prices have finally come down.  I was considering getting it when a bunch of reviews for Gundam Reborn started showing up.  I found it interesting that many of them …

Dubious Quality Bookstore

I’ve known Bill Harris of Dubious Quality for a long time even though it’s been years since we’ve seen each other.  A while back after he kept recommending books, I set up a simple Amazon astore for him to show him how easy it was.  He didn’t want to deal with it.  He told me …

Teen Wolf [TV]

The new season of Teen Wolf has started on MTV.  As old as I am, it’s just bizarre for TV seasons to start in the middle of summer.  In fact, I only knew about the season start because I followed a twitter link and saw it trending.  This spring I caught up on Teen Wolf …

Steam Summer Sale Haul

I admit that I love the big Steam Sales.  I did figure out this year that I could sell all my unneeded trading cards during the sale to help lighten the burden on my wallet.  Sure, it only saved me about five bucks, but that’s much better than I did last year when I lost …

The GOG List: Independence War Deluxe

The GOG List is part of my plan to keep a regular update schedule.  I’m going to be going through my game libraries.  With GOG, I’ll be explaining why I purchased these ‘old games.’  After all, it’s easy to understand buying the new shiny games, but why buy something old?  The simple answer is that …
