Ramblings – Overwatch – Summer Games Update


Hey guys.  I didn’t want to keep missing weeks, so I wanted to do a quick column on Overwatch’s Summer Games update which was sent out yesterday.  But first, a bit of housekeeping.  As I mentioned on my Twitter, I won’t be doing No Man’s Sky like I previously planned.  No, it isn’t because of the leaks, but rather because I just don’t like controlling space craft in video games.  I don’t know why I allowed myself to get hyped by No Man’s Sky, when most of the game is flying through space.  But I did, and I’m glad I came to my senses before the game came out.

So now GameFly sent me the Mega Man Legacy Collection for PS4, so I’ll be giving that a go hopefully next week.  LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens may be after that.  I don’t know for sure.  No idea how much space ship battles are in that one.  The trailer for the game on GameFly shows some space ship battles, and that worries me.  But I liked the first LEGO Star Wars game, and I have high hopes for the latest one.

Anyway, Overwatch. More

Ramblings – July 20, 2016 Update


Hey guys, I’m back!  Sorry for the two week absence.  I’ve been dealing with some personal issues that have gotten worse over the past several weeks and I’m trying to get that stuff sorted out, but I didn’t want to go the whole month without something.  I hate to do another Ramblings Update post, but I don’t have any other ideas at the moment.  Some stuff I’m going to talk about will be new, though, so there’s that, at least.  Let’s get on with it.

Ramblings – Mighty No. 9


Hey guys, welcome back!  Last week Mighty No. 9 was finally released.  Almost three years in development and three delays, it’s finally here.  I was a backer of the Kickstarter, and I covered the backer-only trial last September.  Now I have the final game on the PS4, and I played through the main story mode.  Was it worth the wait?

Ramblings – Best of E3 2016


Hey guys.  I know I was supposed to review Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst this week.  Well, I got the game from Gamefly, I played it a bit, and I just didn’t feel like playing it any more.  It just didn’t click with me.  I can’t put my finger on it, but I really have nothing good or bad to say about it.  It’s just, meh.  So instead, I thought I’d write out my top ten games of E3 2016.  A list of the games that were either announced or shown in press conferences or on gaming media sites during the event that have me really anticipating them.  So without further ado, onto the games.

Ramblings – E3 2016 Day 2 – MS, Ubi, & Sony


Welcome back everyone!  It’s day two of E3 2016 press conferences.  Today we had Microsoft, Ubisoft, and Sony.  Whew.  That’s a lot.  Remember these are my personal thoughts on the content of each show.  So my take may be very different from yours.  I suggest you watch the shows yourself on Twitch or YouTube when the VODs go up if you didn’t watch them live.  Anyway, let’s get started!

Ramblings – E3 2016 Preview


Greetings all, it’s that time of year again.  E3 2016 kicks off this coming Sunday!  Well, the show floor doesn’t open until Tuesday, but the press conferences start on Sunday, and that’s what really counts.  Those are where the good stuff is announced.  So for this week’s column, I wanted to write up a little preview of E3 2016, including what I expect to see announced and what I hope to see announced.  Ready?  Let’s go!

Ramblings – June 1, 2016 Updates


Back in March, when I didn’t have anything to really write about, I did an “Updates” column.  Since I find myself in a similar situation now, I figure I’d make this a semi-regular part of Ramblings.  I have some things I wanted to say about Overwatch, and a few other topics.  If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you know I’ve mentioned Overwatch more than a few times.  But I swear, that’s not all I’m going to talk about today.  So let’s get on with it.
