Gaming Fatigue: When Gamers Need A Breather From Video Games

July is nearly over and by now most of my followers know to expect a video game challenge report at the end of each month. It’s my way of keeping track of my own personal progress while discussing impressions I have had on the game I chose to play from my hill of a backlog. Despite my dogged determination to play and experience every game I ever bought or received as a gift, going as far as turning it into a challenge, even fatigue and lack of motivation can sometimes strike the best and most ardent of gamers.

There In A Pinch: Uncovering The Joy Of Overwatch’s Brigitte

Online game nights, or every other weekend for online fun, is a tradition I cherish with my good friend. Sometimes our options for multiplayer games we can play together are limited, but they aren’t lacking in quality either. Since coming back from my vacation a few weeks ago, we got together to play a few rounds of Overwatch. By going back to Blizzard Entertainment’s stellar online multiplayer game, I finally got to discover the joys of Overwatch’s latest addition to the team Brigitte.

Physical Discs vs. Digital Downloads: How Do You Like To Own Your Games?

This year has been a bit of a dry spell for me when it comes to finding video games I want to purchase and play. Then, there has been a gradual increase in games I really wanted to have when I heard the latest new releases that hit in June. Whenever there’s a new game I want to play, the question I now find myself asking is in what form should I buy it as? Physical game disc or digital download?

Land, Air, And Sea: Vacation And Blog Hiatus

The official start of summer is June 21st and it’s about that time most people will be planning getaways, whether it be big or small. When you’re a working adult, it almost doesn’t matter when you take off for vacation. As long as there’s no conflict with work and personal schedules, you can go away any season. But one advantage of going away during the summer is the warmer weather. The clothes you pack will be lighter and there’s no need to lug around a bulky winter jacket, at least if you’re not heading to Antarctica. What’s with all this talk of vacations and summer? I’ll be heading out on my next adventure!

Far Cry 5: Adventures In Online Co-op Play

My friend and I started a tradition of playing games that offer an online multiplayer feature or cooperative play ever since I joined the vast and wonderful world of video games. We have played everything from Borderlands to Overwatch. It’s quality time we look forward to scheduling every other weekend when we may not always see each other in person due to conflicting work schedules. It has made playing and finishing games easier and fun when you have another person uniting in your cause to seeing a game through to the end, or at least having a partner to fight a particularly hard boss. The latest game to be added to our small but growing collection of games we can and have played together is Far Cry 5.

PAX 2018 In Review: Much Of The Same But No Less Fun

Two weekends ago another PAX East was held in the great city of Boston. I was fortunate enough to attend the always busy and exciting video game convention that happens once a year for a third time.
