About Me:

I knew at an early age that I wanted to make a career out of writing about games, and now I have. You'll find most of my stuff right here on HonestGamers, of course, but don't be surprised if my name pops up elsewhere. Living out my dream keeps me very busy, and I wouldn't have it any other way!


My Thoughts on Google's Stadia Streaming Service
March 19, 2019

Today at the Game Developers Conference, Google revealed (some of) its plans for an entry into the console market, if you want to call it that. For some time now, rumors were reporting that Google would reveal a streaming console, and that's about what it did. Called "Stadia," the platform appears right now to be more virtual than physical. Its primary draw is that you'll be able to play games on a range of devices, from your phone to a weak laptop or desktop, using controllers that suit you or the new one Google unveiled.

My 3DS Wish List
March 08, 2019

Did you know that the 3DS is basically done at this point? The stream of releases has long since slowed to a trickle, and the only big retail release confirmed as definitely still coming to the platform this year is Persona Q2 in a few months.

I've been fortunate, in that I've mostly been able to buy the games I wanted for the system as they released, but there are always a few that slip through the cracks. I'm posting this list for my own personal reference, because it's easy to check as I'm out and about and potentially shopping for games, or if I want to go on a semi-organized buying spree on eBay or the like.

Here's my list:

01. Batman: Arkham Origins - Blackgate
02. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
03. Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars
04. Cooking Mama 5: Bon Appetit!

Is Game Freak playing things too safe with Pokemon Sword and Shield?
February 28, 2019

When I finished watching the Nintendo Direct that Nintendo broadcast on YouTube early yesterday morning, my first reaction most decidedly was not "Well, this will get a lot of folks up in arms!" I was too excited, a grin plastered across my dopey face. I couldn't remember when I had been more thrilled at the thought that in less than 10 months, I'll get to play a new Pokemon game.

The Wii Shop Channel Shutdown Signals Dark Times Ahead
January 30, 2019

I have no personal interest in getting a tattoo, for numerous reasons including the fact I am a wuss and hate needles, but I have occasionally wondered what image I might have printed on my body if I were to make an exception. I believe I've finally narrowed it down to a 1up mushroom or (just to be ironic and amuse myself) an invincibility star. You can see what those two things have in common: Nintendo. I'm a huge fan, and so this is probably the most "anti-Nintendo" post you'll ever see me write. But I have a reason.

Another Life Update
November 19, 2018

For the last month or so, I have been without regular work. This is a condition that was unexpected, but necessary, and I hope it will persist. That is, I hope it will persist on my terms.

For a year almost to the day, I was working as a cashier at Walmart. That job may have helped pay the rent, but it was detrimental to my health in ways I didn't even realize until finally the stress became too much and I had to quit one morning instead of starting my shift. Within days, several physical symptoms that I had been fighting cleared up or severely diminished, so that now I am feeling much healthier in general (though not without facing some lingering effects related to the stress).

Family emergency
August 06, 2018

I am typing this post on my phone, in a hospital waiting room halfway across the state from my apartment. So I will keep it brief...

While fighting Oregon wildfires on farmland where he works (or adjacent to it), my dad was driving a Caterpillar vehicle. It got caught on an embankment of some sort and rolled over. My dad was in the cab and avoided being crushed but was still seriously injured. He is scheduled for surgery tonight on his spinal column, but that may be pushed back some and maybe even until tomorrow.
