One of the best things about playing video games is you go on a journey with a character. In the beginning, they’re total strangers to you and you’re not really sure what to make of them. Will I like you or hate you? Will I want to see you pull through or have you rot in hell like you deserve? Give it time, or until the end of the game, and you’ll find yourself caring about them, like a really great friend who you’ll only want to see the very best happen to them. This is the journey I felt I had with Sleeping Dog’s Wei Shen. Before we say farewell to roaring March, let’s see how I did with this month’s video game challenge.
The best advice my mom has ever given to me when it comes to fashion and style is always keep a few items of clothing that aren’t necessarily classic styles in your closet. You’ll never know when something will be in fashion again. It’s a good thing this little piece of advice has stuck with me because one of my favorite fashion looks seem to be making a grand reappearance this spring––the bell sleeves.
There comes a time in every convention goer’s life where you’ll want to expand your attendance beyond the local ones in your area. I’ve been a regular at New York Comic Con for the last few years now, and as much fun and convenient as it is to go to this geek/nerd oasis every year, I’m always looking for new experiences and places to explore. Two weekends ago, I finally expanded my convention going experience by going to PAX East in Boston for the first time ever.
Being a passionate and devoted geek/nerd is tough work when you’re an adult. Forget about having more than one hobby to choose to spend your time on. That’s only part of the challenge we deal with on a regular basis. When you factor money and time into the equation, specifically when you’re a manga fan, you may find yourself in the position of not really reading them as much as you used to.
Every once in a while you’ll find one game that is so epic it’s almost impossible to find a new game that’ll top the experience you’ve just had. I found myself in that predicament when I played and finished Dragon Age: Inquisition. DAI has been my sun, moon, and stars for the last four months of my gaming life. Moving onto other games (until Bioware releases DLC or an expansion to extend the DAI experience) has been a difficult task. What game is worthy of my time and devotion for a whole month? Fortunately, I’ve been able to answer that question and make my choice after feeling out a few games before making a commitment to one.
