Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth (PS4, 2016)

Binding of Isaac: Rebirth stands as one of my favorite games of all time. It has surpassed the original, a game I also loved, in every conceivable way. I favor playing Rebirth on my Playstation 4 (the controls are better and my bed is more comfortable than any office chair). When the first ever expansion… Continue reading Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth (PS4, 2016)

Mighty No. 9 (PS4, 2016)

Mighty No. 9 has to be one of the most challenging video games I have ever tried to review. When it launched late last month, it was received with the most venom I have seen for a game in a long time. I am included in that bunch. Not only was the game delayed multiple times, but… Continue reading Mighty No. 9 (PS4, 2016)

Why I Cook

When it comes to hobbies, cooking is one of my favorites. Nearly every day, I cook, but I do it for more than just providing a meal for myself and my family. I enjoy everything about cooking.

Leap of Fate (PC, 2016)

While I do not seek out roguelikes all the time, I always have an eye open for new ones to try. After hearing about Leap of Fate,… Continue reading Leap of Fate (PC, 2016)

More Plus Infinity: Female Characters So Far …

If the Hugo Award is important to me, then how do I get my head around the lack of female representation in the first three Hugo Award-winning Best Novels? Do I excuse it (products of their era)? Do I write frantically in anger about it? Do I agree with it? Thus far, I have read… Continue reading More Plus Infinity: Female Characters So Far …

Bravely Second (3DS, 2016)

Bravely Second is the follow-up to Bravely Default. It's not only a sequel, but one of the world's most elaborate copy/paste jobs ever. Bravely Second uses the exact same map, the same characters, the same dungeons, much of the same music, the exact same battle system, and the same art assets. It is less a… Continue reading Bravely Second (3DS, 2016)

More Plus Infinity: Heinlein’s Double Star is worth more than two stars.

Double Star is now the earliest novel by Robert Heinlein that I have read. It shows it too. Winning the third ever Hugo for Best Novel, Double Star is the first of many of Heinlein's books that I will be reading. I found Double Star to be as compelling as anything else I have read… Continue reading More Plus Infinity: Heinlein’s Double Star is worth more than two stars.
