Video Game Visibility Project: Life is Strange

  I forgot Life is Strange Episode 1 was coming out. So right when I was feeling confident in my lack of need for new games.. I pretty much had to buy it. I wanted to play it before I heard much chatter about it, and I could tell chatter was already starting. So I…

Video Game Visibility Project: Carpe Fulgur Collection on Steam Sale

Well, Steam sales got me again. I’m dispensing with the format that I had been using for these, because I’ve found that in many cases, it doesn’t cause me to reveal anything interesting. And its poorly adapted to gifts, ect.   So. I bought the Carpe Fulgur collection because it was on sale, and it…

Video Game Visibility Project: I spent money in a mobile game

I’m way behind on this project, as I’ve got to cover Christmas still, and have a few decisions to make about when and if I count gifts/freebies related to my job.

I didn’t play FFX in its era, but I did watch Thom play quite a…

Video Game Visibility Project – Quakecon Headset, Received as Gift

Here’s the first “received as gift” edition of the Video Game Visibility Project: a Quakecon 2014 headset. This year was the first Quakecon I’ve missed since 2009 (We had bought Forecastle Festival tickets before Qcon dates were announced, and they were the same dates) so a friend picked this up for me. This is actually…

Video Game Visibility Project: Pixel Creature Hats

I’m in Louisville for Forecastle Festival right now, but before I make myself a liar, I need to make a post on these video game related hats I got at Screwattack Gaming Convention. To be clear, this is something I tried to buy, but Alec of Freaks and Geeks wouldn’t take the money. So here’s…
