The Rhythm of Gaming

noun a strong, regular, repeated pattern of movement or sound. During the last few months of my reintroduction and submersion back into gaming, I have found myself without really thinking about falling into a groove, a rhythm if you will. At first, this didn’t strike it as a detail that stood out even caught my…

The Grind

I don’t have many friends but if you were to ask them about me, they would tell you a handful of concrete and solid facts about me that haven’t changed in nearly 2 decades about me. I am a tinker, I like the smallest of details when it comes to the things I enjoy, and…

Recently Beaten: Horizon: Zero Dawn

What can go wrong if you start a fight with a robotic creature bigger than you, equipped with mainly a spear and a bow with arrows, right?

After Avengers: Endgame – What Now?

Note: Given that the movie hasn’t been out for very long yet, I’ll keep the post spoiler free as much as possible. So Avengers: Endgame has been out now for some weeks and it has certainly been a smash hit at the box office and has mostly positive ratings all around. Does it warrant the…

Anime Impressions: “Haikyuu!!” – 3 Seasons

Generally, I do not watch sports anime at all (not interested in the sports and often they are far too much over the top, like Prince of Tennis). But friends convinced me to give this series a chance, which turned out to be a good choice. A while back we finished watching the third season…

A closer look: Stonekeep (1995)

Several years after originally playing this game, I finally managed to have another go and complete it. Don’t even remember why I stopped playing it back then, to be honest. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a lack of enjoying the game. So, after having finally beat it, I think I’ll collect some of my thoughts…
