I just played, like, sixty hours of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

It was OK. I should put more words here.  Also it was rather better than OK and that is an unfair way to start today’s post. Finishing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, or ASSODD as I shall call it henceforth, marks the … Continue reading

A Mercy Killing

Normally, if I stop regularly blogging, it’s because I’ve gotten hooked on a new MMO, and I am always fairly disappointed in myself when this happens. I am happy to report that this is not the case.  Woo! I’m dealing … Continue reading

The Old Man and Mercy

It’s mid-January and I am still playing Overwatch for between 30 and 60 minutes every night while making the pedals of our exercise bike go ’round.  As far as exercise routines go, it’s pretty low impact… but it does make … Continue reading

Ashen: I couldn’t think of a funny post title.

Let’s be clear.  I had a wide variety of post titles to choose between, but in the end I couldn’t decide between making a funny play on words involving “ash” or making a Souls reference that would be ever-so-clever but … Continue reading
