You thought I’d let the entire month of June pass without a single blog post? You fool. You absolute God damn fool. More

What I’ve Been Reading: March 3, 2019

I’ve got some hot links for you this week. Not sausage links. Links to thinkpieces and articles and the like. I’m sure I’ve made the sausage link joke before, but such is life. Read on for some thoughts on the Avro Arrow, outsider art, and squirting in pornography. But don’t worry, it’s all safe for work. Unless you’ve got a hard-on for cancelled airplanes. You don’t, do you? Because that would make you a filthy pervert. More

Things I’m Most Looking Forward to in 2019

I probably should have put this up a couple of weeks ago, but I’ve been busy (mostly wallowing in self-pity as I am wont to do). So here’s what I’m most looking forward to in 2019! More

Leave a comment

As I do every year (with increasing delay, apparently), I’m running down the biggest disappointments in pop culture that the previous year brought us. Some were offensive, some screwed over customers, and some just plain sucked. Read on to find out more about 2018: The Year in Shit. More

The 10 Best (and 1 Worst) Video Games of 2018

2 Comments

In 2018, my relationship with gaming changed. What was once my primary hobby became mostly a weekend activity, and a sporadic one at that. Games that I would have raced through in a matter of days became months-long affairs. Many games I started went unfinished, due to lack of either time (Deltarune) or skill (Pato Box). I even bought or downloaded some games without so much as installing them (sorry, Vampyr!)

As my real-life responsibilities increased, I finally understood why so many adults struggle with completing big games. There just aren’t enough hours in a day to play Spider-Man, God of WarRed Dead Redemption 2, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant KingdomValkyria Chronicles 4, and Octopath Traveler all in the same year. Tragically, every single one of those games ended up passing me by.

But I did manage to complete a number of smaller titles. 2018 was the year I got back into indie gaming in a big way. In contrast to 2017, when my top 10 list was dominated by major AAA titles, my 2018 list consists mostly of smaller titles and indie fare. By most standards, it’s a bizarre list, but who knows? Maybe you’ll discover a hidden gem in here. More
