Second on these gaming posts. This one’s all about genres. No, I’m not gonna define the genres, you can check Wikipedia for those, but I am gonna talk about my favorites and mention a few games in each, little gems you might not know about. Let’s kick it off with RPGS, my favorite.
This week I’ve been pondering the question: What makes a game “a classic”? Classics are, by definition, those that best represent their genre, style, etc. But how is it that of two games one is a classic and the other isn’t? When both do the same things? You could say the one that releases first is the classic, but that’s […]
I will say this only once. I HATE POLITICS. It didn’t used to be like that. Once upon a time, politics, politicians, governments and such didn’t even cross my mind, the only time it did was when there was an election coming.

Insults, dislikes, criticism and bile flew out with force and frequency, people wouldn’t let it die…it […]
This post is not what I promised, not another diary, not another story; instead it’s another rant, another stroke of conscience or insight. Have you ever regretted anything? Not kissing that girl when you should have or not punching that idiot’s face in? I’ve regretted a few of those, more times than I can count, and every time I […]
First of all, forgive the state of the place, still tweaking the design and am waiting for a nice drawing to use as banner (don’t really like having the name on it’s own, rather have a doodle). This blog represents both an amazing opportunity for myself and an terrible defeat. On one side, I’ll be able to post my random […]
