Am I Playing Skyrim Wrong?

If it's not my choice of weapon, it will be my choice of quests, how I spend my skill points (if you were wondering, this could be described as "haphazardly", at best), or if those don't bother you enough, maybe you just don't like my character's name. For whatever reason, I wouldn't be suprised if… Continue reading Am I Playing Skyrim Wrong?

Bring Back Co-op Gaming

If it wasn't for co-op gaming, I wouldn't be into gaming. I probably wouldn't have begged my parents for a PlayStation One; I wouldn't have returned to the gaming world with an Xbox 360 years later, and I wouldn't have had a hilarious time playing both Lego: Star Wars and Portal 2 over the last… Continue reading Bring Back Co-op Gaming

Why you don’t play The Witcher 3 with your grandparents

In my first ever Twitch stream for Redbrick Gaming, I was joined by Mason to talk button bashing (don't do it kids), Yennefer (on a barrel?), and what we like about the game (that is, other than Yennefer).

A Year of Blogging

Don’t chase perfection for perfection’s sake, or for any one else’s sake at all. If you strive for something, make sure it’s for the right reasons. And if you fail, that will be a better lesson to you than any success you’ll ever have. Because you learn a lot from screwing up. -Felicia Day It's… Continue reading A Year of Blogging
