The Fickleness of Fandoms

This might be a little controversial, so strap in, friends. I'm a pretty big gamer. Considering writing is definitely part of my career and I tie reading into that, too (even though neither of them pay me for it...yet), spending time on my PS4 and playing games is prolly my favorite and most time-consuming hobby. I love… Continue reading The Fickleness of Fandoms

A Plea for RPGs

So, I'm a pretty huge gamer. RPGs, specifically. I've pretty much sold pieces of my soul to BioWare and Bethesda, particularly, and I'm totally okay with that. The games that they create makes that totally worth it. The characters who I fall in love with, the worlds that are immersive and vast and let me… Continue reading A Plea for RPGs

E3 Reponse From the Casually Obsessed Gamer

So, E3 finally happened. I wasn't lucky enough to go (who has that kind of money?) and that's probably a good thing, because I saw pictures of some of the swag that was there and oh boy, my bank account does not need that kind of temptation put in front of me. I watched most… Continue reading E3 Reponse From the Casually Obsessed Gamer

So, if you've read any of my previous reviews of the games in this franchise (which can be found here or here), you know I'm a bit of a fan. Maybe even a bit more than "just" a fan. I love these games. I got so invested… Continue reading Mass Effect: Andromeda

My Purposefully Ignorant Wait to Explore Andromeda

There is no doubt--not a shadow, not a sliver, not an inkling--surrounding my excitement for the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda. I've been ready since it's announcement. Ever since I bawled my eyes out at the end of playing Mass Effect 3 (very late, granted, compared to the rest of the crowd, but still), I've been eagerly… Continue reading My Purposefully Ignorant Wait to Explore Andromeda

Mass Effect

WARNING: SPOILERS ABOUND (for entire trilogy, just not first game) AFTER THIS SENTENCE. READ AT YOUR OWN PERIL. I spent this afternoon frantically killing Saren/Sovereign before I had to go to work tonight. Last night, I stayed up until four in the morning, hyped up on adrenaline, as I fought in Virmire (dammit, Virmire). Even… Continue reading Mass Effect
