I’ve seen some videos lately about Doom and wanted to share them, so I’m writing this post. The first (embedded) video is from the YouTube channel called Today I Found Out. Simon, the host, explains the origin of the game, including how it got it’s name. I think the video is worth watching, even funny at times, so I thought I’d share it.

I’ve also been watching some videos on the YouTube channel called Gaming Bolt. They’ve gone over the lore of Doom and some of the creatures. If you like the game, you should check these out as well: https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingBoltLive/search?query=doom

I also want to make you aware of Doom the Rogue-Like game. I found out about... Read All


Minecraft: Dungeons recently released a closed beta version. People could sign up at https://dungeons.minecraft.net/ to join, but since it’s a closed beta, not everyone who signed up will receive a key. From what I’ve read, it also seems that keys were sent out and no more would be given, so if you didn’t get one to start with, you’ll probably not be able to join in the beta. That’s ok though as the game is going to be released on May 26, 2020. There are two editions already available for pre-order including the $20 Standard Edition and the $30 Hero Edition. The latter, “includes a Hero Cape, two player skins, and a chicken pet usable only within Minecraft Dungeons.... Read All

The 90's was a great time for PC gaming, at least for me. Oh I got a bit of 90's nostalgia recently thanks to the LGR channel on YouTube, which I found from Jon. I recently found some videos there that I absolutely loved and I've decided to share them and write this post.

Before we got our first Windows PC in '95, my family had a Commodore 128D. I was 16 and so happy to get that Acer PC! I became a "download demon" downloading all kinds of shareware games that I could. At this time, I wasn't new to the BBS scene. Our PC had a much better modem, so I was able to see a BBS in all of it's glory. I even ran one of my own at night for a time. A friend and I used it to play... Read All


There were a lot of games announced for Switch in the latest Nintendo direct and I wanted to highlight that 2K games is bringing some essential classics such as The Bioshock Collection, Borderlands Legendary Collection: includes Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and The XCom 2 Collection to the Switch on May 29th. The good news is these versions will come with a physical game releases but they are so large that they couldn't include everything on the 16 gig game cart.

I love Borderlands and had fun playing it on the PS3 and hopefully the Switch version is faithful to these games. As they don't require the most cutting edge of hardware... Read All


I'm going to be writing a few posts about games I'd otherwise not be playing but decided to because we're all now to shelter-in-place and you know, fuck it, might as well get to some cool games.

One game I've had my eye on for quite some time is Risk of Rain 2 as I __really__ enjoyed the original game on PC. That said, with a kid and a developer day job sitting yet again at a desk on a PC for fun isn't always a super hot idea so playing games on the Switch is much more appealing. I've considered picking up Risk of Rain 2 on the Switch and wasn't sure because it's a third person shooter and had doubts how well that might work out on a controller(I prefer a keyboard and...

A few years ago some friends and I returned to SimTown after finding a copy and had a blast playing it. Somehow it ran just fine on the modern Windows at the time and even though it wasn't perfect it I had a lot of fun playing it. The best part of SimTown is that it doesn't get bogged down with complex simulations and lets you build your tower as you want, with minimal direction. One downside of letting the player do something in a way that isn't optimal is that it is possibly frustrating but that's not always a bad way to learn.

I quite enjoyed this SimTower review by Hungry Goriya and recommend you all check it out. I don't quite look at the negatives in the same... Read All

Hello citizens of Wyrmdoor!

If you're like me, it's felt weird this month to only have one game of Tale of the White Wyvern to play instead of two since Season 1 ended. Well, we have some great news: Season 2 starts up in just a few days, April 1!

Titled The Plot Quickens, this season will be fast. Very fast. The focus is on getting through Wyvern kills much faster than normal with increased experience gain and gold find. But with great power comes great responsibility: the rapid pace of the game means that if you die in the forest, you could get passed over in the standings much more quickly. I'm going to be on the edge of my seat watching the leaderboards for this... Read All
