AM or PM? Thanks to an AM PM mix up when setting the alarm, my girlfriend and I woke up 30 minutes later than was planned. We quickly scrambled to get ready, well I scrambled my girlfriend was in no rush to return to the cold. Even with the alarm mishap we managed to make it to the convention center […]

The Adventure Begins… Coldly. I am not sure if you know this, but it’s COLD in Boston. My PAX East 2015 adventure began at 7:00 AM in the blistering cold.

For the second year in a row I am off to PAX East in Boston. Last year I ventured forth into the world of PAX without a single clue of what to expect or do. Unsurprisingly there were some hiccups along the way, but this year I am excited and with one year under my belt I expect to not […]

I have a problem friends, a good problem but still a problem. The gaming season seems to have done it to me again. Every year no matter how hard I plan or try to avoid it, a great game is destined to get their feelings hurt. It’s the problem all us gamers want to have, too many games you want […]
