    Brian Still Hasn’t Beat Pools of Darkness, Part Two – Ignoring the Plight of the Realms for Some Sweet XP

    [Hey. This is part 2 in a series. If you wanna read part 1, you can check that out here.] [Be forewarned: I’m real bad at remembering to take screenshots, so you may have to use your imagination until (and if) I get my act together. I stole some from MobyGames.com so you would at […]

    Brian Still Hasn’t Beat Pools of Darkness

    It all started as an innocent computer game purchase from Babbage’s in 1993. It has grown into a monster that eludes me to this day. I have what practically amounts to a wrecked semi’s worth of video games at my disposal, and none of them have achieved White Whale status quite like Pools of Darkness. […]

    My Top 10 Video Games of “2018”

    With 2018 being my first full year as a father, the value of shorter games that I could play to completion in just a few hours became greater than ever. While binging a 5-10 hour game over a weekend is a perfectly cromulent option, I only have 45 minutes to an hour to play games, […]

    My Top 10 Games of “2017”

    You may recall my Top 10 Video Games of “2016” post from last year, which was a pretty easy list to assemble, considering I only finished ten games or so in 2016. But, as you may also recall from my year-in-review post from the beginning of this year, I beat over 20 games in 2017, […]

    My 2017: What Worked and What Didn’t

    Hey, so 2017 was pretty crazy, right? It was pretty crazy for me, too, with a lot of successes and failures personally and creatively. As a sort of personal therapy, I’m reviewing what worked and what didn’t work this year, both to get it off my mind, and to put it all in a central […]

  • The Lone Wanderer

    Since Fallout 4 is a new release and all the rage, naturally, I haven’t finished Fallout 3 yet. I bought the game on launch day some seven years ago and played it for maybe a couple of weeks before getting preoccupied and never going back to it. This is why I don’t buy games at […]
