2225_sword_art_online

I’m not as huge into anime as I was say 10 years ago. To be honest its a lot harder to keep up with these days than it was when I was a youngster. “Back in my day we had like 8 videos at the rental store and those few movies they’s play on the …

Stand back cause I’m gonna hit you with a notstalgiagasm! There is a new Toejam and Earl game in development. Cause many of you consumers of video game related media are young whippersnappers, I’m gonna give you some backstory.

3 Completely Watchable Tool Assisted Speedruns (TAS)

For the uninitiated, Tool Assisted Speedruns or TAS are videos of record breaking speed runs. To accomplish record breaking times players use emulators, hacks, exploits, loopholes, save states, and shortcuts. I like to consider them as a Cliff’s Notes version of Lets Play videos.

Early Impressions of Aurelia, the Baroness – Borderlands the Pre-Sequel

I was both excited and upset to find out about the new Baroness pack for Borderlands: the Pre-Sequel. The inner kid in me was excited to go through the saga of Elpis again with a new character, while my inner adult realized that my weekend was now spoken for and I won’t be getting around …

Borderlands Handsome Collection?

It appears that Gearbox has a personal vendetta against my bank account. I am currently on my 5th playthrough of Bodrerlands: The Pre-Sequel and doing what I can only guess is my 14th playthrough of BL2 with my roommate. On average I dedicate about 2 hours a day to this franchise. I’ve been banging away …

5 SNES Hidden Gems

If you are anything like me, and I know you are, you grew up with a copious amount of video games. I certainly spent many days of my childhood (when I should have been learning social skills) playing 16-Bit video games. So I’m sure you’ve played Super Mario World to death and can speedrun Super …

My thoughts on Borderlands the Pre Sequel

If you know me, (and I think you do). You know I love the shit out of the borderlands series. I fell in love with the first one because it was a FPS with the leveling up mechanic of an RPG. This alone was enough to get me to playthrough the game 8 times, twice …
