In 2018 I played a little more than double the amount of video games as I did in 2017. There are a few reasons for this. First of all, now that the twins are older I don’t have to watch them as diligently. I can’t be as off-hands as I was when it was just […]
Scarlett drew this back in September when the kids were playing a lot of Spelunky. It’s interesting to see which parts of the game imprinted on her mind.
It was a pretty busy year for me in 2017 as I got more into cooking as the twins got older and I didn’t have as much time to myself. I felt I hadn’t nearly played as many games in 2016. But when I started gathering the stats, that’s when I realized just how much […]
Things are busier now, especially as the weather warms up and we begin to do more outside, so I’m switching from keeping track monthly to doing so quarterly. Vertical Drop Heroes HD (3 hr 15 min) Finally beat this game. It was a lot of fun and I’ll probably play some New Game+ this year […]
What a year for gaming. I tried to take advantage whenever I could to get a chance to game and I was able to do a nice mix of newer and older games. I also made a bit of a dent in the list of games I got as part of a Humble Bundle. Well, […]
Took advantage of MIL’s presence to get some gaming done before I would be too busy to game for a while. Civilization VI (18 hours): This time around I play as Greece and try for a cultural victory while also getting more involved in the religion part of the game. Vertical Drop Heroes HD (1 […]
Civilization VI (9 hrs) The latest iteration of this series I’ve been playing for the past 25 years was released and the changes have made the game more dynamic and, for the first time in the series, have really made it so that I can’t just do the same thing every game because of how […]
Vertical Drop Heroes HD (2 hours): I continued to be addicted to this little rogue-like. I’m getting pretty close to level 10 and the hinted reveal. Civilization III (2 hours): It came a bit later than I wanted it to, but I started playing Civ III in an attempt to play Civs III-VI between the […]
Civilization V (2 hrs) A few more turns in our multi-player games. Team Fortress 2 (2 hrs) I decided to play a little more and work on creating an overlay that allows the game to be full screen while also still presenting my Extra Life information. After a of couple tries, I like where it […]
I forgot to do June last month, so a double header this time. Contraption Maker (4 hours) I continued to play and entertain Scarlett with my puzzle-solving skills. Spelunky (17 minutes) Dan donated to my Extra Life charity drive and forced me to do a butt-load of pushups. (An arm-load, really) Civ V (1 hour) […]
Civilization V (8 hours): I started off playing the same multi-player games we’ve been playing for years now. Then I heard Civ VI comes out this year and so that inspired me to play a solo game. Contraption Maker (1 hour): I started off just intending to check out this this game. Then Scarlett saw […]
In April I took a break from playing so many games to focus on comics and books. But I still go some play time in. Civilization V (1 hour): Cook Serve Delicious (30 minutes): I just wanted to test how well it would work on my Linux computer with Steam Big Picture. For some weird […]
I will not be having a Star Wars day today on May the Fourth and it’s thanks to Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). For people who wonder why I often blog about DRM – this is why we need to fight it. I bought LEGO Star Wars five or more years ago. It was OK, but […]
Spelunky! (5 hours): Proving the worth of Let’s Play videos to anyone on the publishing side who still doesn’t believe, when Dan first told me about Spelunky! it didn’t sound like something I’d enjoy. When I got around to watching Dan’s Let’s Play videos, I decided it was indeed something I’d enjoy. Five hours later….I’m […]
