I cleared my backlog. (Now what?)

YOU LIKE DRAGONS?

Compared to the original DS, I never really made my 3DS into a constant pocket companion.  By the time I’d owned one for a couple of years, I had to admit that I’d spent far more time collecting puzzle pieces … Continue reading

Fire Emblem: Chrom has his priorities straight

Thanks to the combined forces of Corona-chan, heavy rains locally, and a rapidly-dwindling work ethic, I have been getting some significant work done on pruning the backlog. The most recent “big” game I’ve finished was Assassin’s Creed: Origins, which was … Continue reading

Assassin’s Creed III Remastered: A Second Chance to Make a Good Impression.

So, some open spoilers in this post, hopefully people will not be too upset as I’m talking about a game from 2012. I originally played Assassin’s Creed III over the course of a weekend, shortly after release, skipping all of … Continue reading
