Confessions of a Gaming Father: Dads in Games

I know in my circle of friends Barret of FF7 is somewhat a running joke.  He is 1997 Japan’s idea of African Americans.  Stereotypes saturate his dialogue and just about every aspect of the character without being full-blown racist. Wait… Continue Reading →

Winmas was a Success

Saturday July 27th, 2013 was the first ever Winmas (better name still pending).  I dragged the TV from my bedroom, one from my basement, and even rigged a pair of PCs and a laptop for maximum fun. Streams were watched,… Continue Reading →

Let the Gaming Begin

I said I’d crawl out of bed at noon and start my own personal gamathon today.  So far so good.  I’m happy to report my attractive, more athletic than nerdy, fiance is running Spyro dragon right now. I got a… Continue Reading →

It has Begun…

No, this post isn’t about Mortal Kombat. This is about one of my new favorite video game hobbies – speed running.  A fascination I’d like to thank my friend Mike for. The video game speed run marathon gauntlet has begun!… Continue Reading →

Best 99 cents ever spent
