    How I Spent My 2020

    First, let me assure you that I am alive and well. I’ve been living happily (uh, well….) these past 10 days in the year 2021. Yes, we made it. Well, some of us. 2020 was supposed to be one of those glorious benchmark years. Look how far we’ve come! Look at the advances we’ve made […]

    Anti-Virus, Week 5 Plus Video Game Talk

    You know what? Forget even doing the one news dump a day. I’m just not checking the news at all. I’m better off living in ignorance than being disappointed in people. Or, maybe I’ll just get all my news from NPR from now on, as it seems as boring and unsensationalized as possible. Is that […]

  • Anti-Virus, Week 2

    Anti-Virus, Week 2

    Well, I guess I’ve adapted to this way of life…as much as one might be able. While COVID-19 is never fully out of my mind, I must admit that there have been a few times over the past week where I kind of forgot about it. Not in the sense that I don’t care, that […]

  • My Top 10 Video Games of “2019”

    My Top 10 Video Games of “2019”

    Check it out! A somewhat timely Top 10 Games of the Year list! By comparison, the 2018 list didn’t release until May of 2019. I’m on a roll. The Pulitzer for online rambling lies within reach! Although, I must admit, assembling a list of ten whole games played in 2019 proved challenging! I spent fewer […]

    My Top 10 Video Games of the Decade: 2010-2019

    I’ve spent the last few years recapping my ten favorite games of the year. These lists are fun to assemble, even though I usually don’t get them out until well into the new year, and most of the games on them tend to be over 20 years old. This list, however, is a little different.  […]

    Brian Still Hasn’t Beat Pools of Darkness, Part Five – Whoops! Brian Beat Pools of Darkness!

    [Hey, this entry is part of a series. Read all about my Pools of Darkness experience here.] WELP I beat Pools of Darkness. But what happened to the blog series? Well, the short version is that, and I’m a little embarrassed to say, I got so into the game that I couldn’t keep up with […]

  • Brian Still Hasn’t Beat Pools of Darkness, Part Four – Dragon’s Lair

    Brian Still Hasn’t Beat Pools of Darkness, Part Four – Dragon’s Lair

    We had a lot more trouble with the fire giant mage’s cave than I was expecting, so I decided it was once again time to leave the Realms in undeniable peril and spend some time irresponsibly leveling up. Nevermind the clouds of dragons ready to descend and level everything in sight—we headed west for experience […]
