BETA :: The Way It Is

I had a plan last night for a blog post this morning, which will still go ahead as scheduled, but I want to start today with something else. I often use Twitter as a tailor’s dummy, on which I’ll pin various things as basis for discussion. Last night, …

Your loss, Amazon!

Published on September 20, 2014 by in Uncategorized

I don’t watch live TV. Having to be there at a specific time, and then sitting through the ads, not my cup of tea. But I do watch a lot of TV shows, either recorded with a hard drive recorder, or bought as a full season of one TV show on DVD. Usually f…

Basic Skills Training for Blockade Runners

My Biggest Beefs With League of Legends

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have played a bunch of League of Legends to the exclusion of other games that I own. I enjoy the competition – it is basically 5v5 PvP, and I like the diverse set of characters that you can play. Many times, though, it can get real frustrating.

On The [insert noun here]

Arrrr. Now that that’s out of the way… Destiny is an interesting, and somewhat divisive game. I’ve been playing it a bit, and I’ve been having fun, but apparently not everyone is. It’s not perfect, but I will say that I haven’t had this much fun with a 70s Metacritic game in a long time. […]

15 Influential Albums

This challenge has been doing its rounds on the internet, but the first person I follow that did it recently was Welshtroll.

Half a Year Later, Relieved at no Chat in Hearthstone

That certainly took a while to reach. Yes, I’ve managed to accomplish one of my goals for Hearthstone: Reaching Legendary status. Now I can relax some and experiment with other decks and classes before the next great hunter nerf. The deck I used was the one I linked to in my last post for Hunters. […]

Indecent Exposure

Published on September 19, 2014 by in Uncategorized

Final Fantasy XIII is coming to PC!

Square Enix announced yesterday that the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy will be heading to PC, with the first of the three launching on October 9th, 2014. Just less than a month away!

The game will be available for download via the Square Enix online store and Steam for $15.99. Right now, the game is up for pre-order through Steam, with a pre-order bonus of 10% off.

There’s also a promise of trading cards for the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy, which players can collect and trade. Sounds exciting!

While I haven’t played any games in the Final Fantasy franchise, this particular trilogy has been widely successful, with over 11 million units shipped worldwide.

I think it’s time to jump on that bandwagon!
