No really, we are. I’m actually in Oregon with two staffers for a mutual friend’s wedding. The wedding was yesterday, which was absolutely beautiful. Today, Chris and I are going to hit the wineries Oregon has to offer. Apparently there are a ton of them, and we found a cluster within walking distance in downtown...

Monday Gaming Diary: Working Out with Video Games

She used it as a way to work out when she got home from work around 3 in the morning. Thanks to her work hours, she couldn’t really go to a gym, so she used DDR to help.

So this was a fun experience and a half. I decided to switch hosts after I turned in my two-week notice at one of my contracting jobs. SGR’s host was with that company, and I decided it would probably be best if I took SGR with me while I already had access to all of the administration side of our host servers. Better to do...

Jun 23, 14 Monday Gaming Diary: It’s Backlog Time, but I Get so Distracted

Posted by

It’s the summer, and I have that most-coveted reprieve in between game reviews. That means the time is ripe for getting through that horrid, horrid stack of shame.
