PlayStation Trophies

At the time of writing, I have collected 3494 trophies, 20 of which are the coveted level of ‘Platinum’. I’m about to start working on my 21st and as I have wondered many times throughout the my life, I once again find myself thinking “why do I do this?”. Nobody sees my trophies. It’s not […]

Star Wars Squadrons

PEW! PEW! PEW! This review was done on a PS4 Pro. I did not use a VR headset because VR makes me nauseous. Just like being in a car, boat or plane. I did wear my Turtle Beach X-Wing Pilot headset though. Not for any reason other than to be a super nerd and immerse […]

Kingdoms of Amalur

Re-Reckoning : A Re-Review This review was done on my Xbox One X. This game is also available for PC and PS4. I am playing on the newly added “Very Hard” difficulty. I advise you all to do the same, it’s challenging but not infuriating and encourages you to learn all the different mechanics on […]

Just some ramblings…

Another cold, wet and windy day today. It’s so hard to keep Chicago entertained in this weather. There is only so much tv we can watch. We’ve already trashed house, attempted a walk, done the laundry, played with the skateboard (I think it needs a name), danced to the wiggles and read “Sweet Heart” about […]

Tony Hawk Pro Skater

1 & 2 Remaster : A Review Like many of us, skaters or not, the Pro Skater franchise had a huge impact on our childhoods. For me, it was always Pro Skater 4. My brother and I spent countless hours playing that game. I say spent, but the truth is I still fire that game […]

NBA 2k21 Demo Review (2)

Part 2 of 2 : MyPlayer I knew how this was going to go, but I thought I would download the app and attempt to scan my face. As per normal it is buggy as heck. I spent a good half hour trying to get it to work. Once I finally managed to get the […]

NBA 2K21 Demo Review

Part 1 of 2 : The Quick Games TLDR : I went on forever with this review. I had a great time writing it, so it turned more into an epic ballad than a review. If you want the quick run down, the game is basically the same. The passing feels better and the shooting […]
