About Me:

I write about video games and horror-related items. Also, I wear a hat.

I may yet review a horror game this month
October 20, 2016

As I previously mentioned, I'm currently on vacation until November 1. I also recently started playing the first-person, action/adventure title (with horror elements) Betrayer. It's an average game, but I'm at least moved enough by it to pen a crit. My only constraint right now is time. I'll be leaving for Seattle soon, and I'd like to have it all done before then.

Way past due Game Progress
October 18, 2016

The last month has been killer. I've had little time to game, and even less time to write. My schedule consists of waking up, maybe cleaning the house, taking my kids to school or therapy, zipping to my mother-in-law's house to drop them off, driving to work, putting in my eight hours and either going home or heading to the gym. If there's any free time, I usually spend it power napping. Lately, I've learned how to game the daily routine such that I get a little more time, plus I've been taking my laptop to work so I can hammer out reviews and such that way.

As of yesterday, I Saturday a two week vacation. I hope to get some more gaming in and maybe cough up some reviews. We'll see, though. As for the gaming progress that I can recall:

I watched the first half of the random horror movies I drew last month.
October 09, 2016

I've watched five of the ten movies I drew up a while back, and I now have my thoughts on each film put together in mini-review format. Obviously, I didn't watch them in the order drawn:

1. Honeymoon (2014)
Bea and Paul (Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway) tie the knot and take a trip to a remote cabin for a honeymoon. Things get weird when Bea begins to exhibit peculiar behavior and strange markings appear on her body.

Pokemon GO's update is apparently MIA
September 12, 2016

One of Pokemon GO's limitations is its evolution system. In order to evolve a Pokemon, you need a specific type of candy. You obtain this candy by catching that particular Pokemon. For instance, if you capture a Squirtle, Wartortle or Blastoise, you'll obtain three Squirtle candies. You can also gain an additional piece of candy for "transfering" a Pokemon to the professor, which is basically like deleting it from your list.

Obviously, since certain Pokemon are not easy to find, evolving them can be a royal pain. You might be able to catch enough Squirtles to evolve to a Wartortle, which requires 25 Squirtle candies, but can you nab enough of them to promote him to a Blastoise (requires 100 Squirtle candies)? Niantic had to find a way around this.

Game Progress 9/12
September 12, 2016

With my new schedule firmly in place, I've had little time to game. Also, I cold turkeyed caffeine this week to help reduce my anxiety. The good news is my anxiety has gone down considerably. The bad news is caffeine withdrawals are a pretty terrible thing to live through. Headaches are only the beginning. I've also had to deal with drowsiness, sciatic nerve pain, fatigue and the occasional bouts of light sensitivity. Thankfully, I've gotten through the worst of it and no longer need to sleep all the time.

I shall now draw ten random horror movies from my watch list to check out next
September 06, 2016

Ages ago, I compiled a list of horror movies to watch because I had so many I wanted to check out that I was forgetting that some even existed. Unfortunately, when my computer crapped out, the original file became corrupted. Bear in mind that I had hundreds of movies on that list because I don't shy away from B-level productions or obscure horror fare.
