If I told you I had some anxiety every time a new console released, would you be surprised to learn that my feelings centered on the design and weight of the controller? Perhaps that is a silly thing to fret about, but I have small hands. When I bought a PS3, I wasn’t completely happy with the DualShock. The size was okay, but it felt … Continue reading Some thoughts on controllers? Yep!
Two things happened within the past 24 hours which led me to this post: a conversation with a close friend and waking up this morning without guilt. I’ll get to both of those things, but first I want to explain the state of the blog. Clearly, I haven’t been posting here as regularly as I did last year.

My grandmother also passed away that fall—her … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 11
Day 10 – Game that Made You Pee Your Pixel Pants You might not know this about me, but I find scary games, well, absolutely terrifying. Sometimes I enjoy being scared, but for the most part, I’d rather watch someone else tackle games like Outlast or watch a Let’s Play. The game that probably unnerved me the most is Resident Evil 7: VR. Of course … Continue reading 30 Day Video Game Challenge: Day 10
