[But… Why? #1] House Flipper

My gaming tastes certainly run eclectic. From RPGs to Shooters, given even a slight prod I’ll at least take a look. Be that as it may, there are still some games I just don’t get. I don’t get why they exist or why anyone would...

Time to Loot Journal: November 2021

I have something of a… plan forming. A project plan. Plans are something of a unicorn around here. Generally flying by the seat-of-my-pants is more my style. So this is significant! Mark the date! Which date? Oh- er… Unsure yet! The...

You know, going in… I expected Arcane to be pretty okay. The trailer looked perfectly fine with an interesting art style and hey, as a bonus it even seemed to focus around characters I was familiar with from my dark and distant days of...

Rolling Credits on Exo One

Exo One is quite a change of pace after spending a lot of time with Forza Horizon 5. No longer going at breakneck speeds around corners, or soaring over the dunes of Mexico — instead, it’s possible to break the sound barrier and fly...

I’ve been playing… Just a little bit of Forza Horizon 5 lately. *cough* It has been a crazy amount of fun. It is an absolute theme park (in only the positive ways) of driving mayhem. Forza just wants you to have fun. All the time. No...

Humble Choice: November 2021

Remember last month, when I expressed a wish for Humble to reduce the number of games and increase the quality of the games on offer? Well, one of those things happened. No points for correctly guessing which one though. This month the range drops...

Finding Joy in Lost Ark

Lost Ark has been something of an emotional rollercoaster for me. I don’t recall when it first entered my awareness, but I think it was no later than 2017. It might even have been 2016. Whatever the case, it was a long time ago and even...

Time to Loot Journal: October 2021

We are crazy close to the end of the year now. There are only seven weeks, more or less, before the company-wide end-of-year break. And boy, oh boy, am I excited for it. Even if Auckland is still in lock-down and we can’t actually go...

Book Review: The Core by Peter V. Brett

This one turned out to be a bit of a monster to get through. It is twice as long as the few books previous to this I’d read — but I don’t think that was really the issue. I go through cycles of reading a lot and then cycles of...

Extends OldKnowledge;

As it turns out, there is a flip side to feeling smart by virtue of ‘relearning’ things you’ve learned long ago. And that is the wonder that comes from pondering the question of, ‘Was I just very, very stupid back...

The Java Journey Continues

If you ever want to feel exceptionally smart for a time, go back and ‘learn’ something you’ve already learnt in the past. I tell you, it’ll do wonders for your ego when you can ‘pick up’ the concepts required in...

Java… I Choose You!

About a month ago, right before Tales of Arise came out, I picked up a number of courses from Udemy. The itch to learn something was upon me and would not be denied! Delayed a little bit, but not denied. Honestly, I’m somewhat impressed with...

New World, Vanilla Experience

It isn’t every day a brand new Western-developed AAA MMO lands on the scene. The last one, I think, was WildStar and that was released in 2014. Not that I have anything against Eastern-developed releases- I’m still bitterly disappointed...

Humble Choice: October 2021

I would be willing to bet Humble Choice has been shedding subscribers rather than growing their base over the last little while. The latest numbers I can find that are specifically dated go back to 2019, when the subscriber count was given as...

Rolling Credits on Imposter Factory

After Imposter Factory’s release delay from December 2020, I kind of lost track as to when it was due. Turns out? It was a few days ago. Steam kindly emailed me to let me know an item on my wishlist had launched. I was immediately in and...
