Thoughts from a PC Nouveau Riche: Destiny 2

So…I am a bit of an Destiny addict… Have been since I purchased the first Destiny (Taken King bundle). I’m a sucker for good character design great settings and rich lore. Even if the lore must be excavated from the internet archives and the apps old grimoire card system…. I’ll admit…I bought D2 for PS4…

PAUSING TO PONDER: THE JOURNEY IS THE GOAL

I Recently I had the pleasure of attempting to explain one of my favorite survival games to a family member. “Hey, what are you playing?” “Don’t Starve.” “Oh. So…what’s the point of the game?” “To…not starve…” “But like the goal. “Uh…that is the goal.” But they didn’t seem to quite understand and it was a…

Prey Demo: Impressions from a Survival Horror Scaredy Cat

To be honest I was not a fan of survival horror when I was younger. Really horror in general. My imagination is too strong and sleep wouldn’t have come for me at all if I did. And yet the recent resurgence of well created and story driven horror games have me diving in head first….

What is a Life goal?

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking (more than usual and on one topic in particular rather than the myriads that I tend to flip through). What is a life goal? And is it really as specific as most make it out to be? I would like to make a case for the argument…

Day 25 – Best anime villian

Shou Tucker from Fullmetal Alchemist (any version you like). He’s selfish and uses science as his reasoning to do anything and doesn’t see why other scientists don’t see things the way he does. Too much logic no morality and delusions of the ‘greater good’ due to scientific (alchemical in this world) advancements. He is a selfish…

Now Entering 2017

I’m sure there will be many other lists talking on and on about how bad 2016 was. And honestly, it was a pretty crappy year both personally and internationally. And really at this point, I think most people will agree with this Comic by  The Oatmeal regarding It. There is simply too much that would…

The First Blogger Recognition Award in 2016

It’s a funny thing when you have your WordPress app set to send you notifications on your phone. I mainly use it to reply to comments in a timely manner. Admittedly I do not use it to write on as…well it leaves quite a bit to be desired. But imagine my surprise when my phone goes…

Day 21 – Favorite goofy character from any anime

Let’s be real in Anime “goofy” characters are a dime a dozen so I had to pick the first one that came to mind: TK from Angel Beats! Angel Beats! Is not for the faint of heart but I heartily recommend it to people as a nice summary as perhaps why so many people love…

Day 18 – A picture of a scene from a filler episode you hated

I openly bent the rules on this one as I honestly came up blank for this. I tend to avoid filler episodes and series that have too many of them that don’t really serve a purpose. I value efficient story-telling and if you are forced to add filler episodes I feel you aren’t doing very well….

Day 17 – Favorite weapon or gear from an anime

  When it comes to gear/ weapons that are used in Anime, the list is so long it’s not even funny. Especially when you start thinking about series that focus on nothing but everyone’s weapons and how they use it. I choose a weapon that appeals to me, instinctually, regardless of the world it’s contained within….
