Homeworld Remastered Collector’s Edition Available for Preorder

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 …

E3 2014

It’s hard to believe that we’re already through another E3. That might make more sense for me since I’m also finding it hard to believe that my little baby is about to start walking. It’s amazing how much time flies when you’re always busy. I have gotten a bit more gaming time in. I’ve been …

May the Fourth

It’s Star Wars day.  I’m going to give you my list of the top 10 Star Wars games that I’ve played.  Note that I’ve played many more Star Wars games than that, but not all deserve a mention.  I’m rolling expansion packs and DLC into the main game if applicable. 10. Masters of the Teras …

Gaming with David

Fishing

Growing up as the kid of a gamer has to be a bit weird. A lot of stuff I would have had to begged my parents for is just lying around our house. David is the oldest, so he has the most gaming experience of the kids. He’s smart and has great reflexes. It won’t …

Game of the Week: Bravely Default Demo

Yes, it’s a demo of a JRPG.  It also has more gameplay that some full games I’ve played lately.  I’m not just talking about indie passion projects or mobile games.  I also admit that Bravely Default isn’t a great name.  It’s memorable, but that’s about it.  Fortunately, we live in a gaming world with products …

Kickstarter: Unsung Story

Yes, it’s another Kickstarter.  However, you get a bunch of leeway from me if you create one of my all time favorite games.  I don’t even know what to say if you create two (Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy XII).  Yasumi Matsuno has also created games I enjoyed (Vagrant Story, Tactics Ogre, and Final Fantasy …

Playstation Vita

My wife got me a Playstation Vita as an anniversary gift. She wasn’t pleased that the only edition available locally was the Walking Dead Vita. Fortunately, it’s a plain Vita bundled with a game code for the Telltale Walking Dead game. I assured her I wouldn’t take any added meaning to the gift. Since I …
