Everybody has heard the complaints about parents in our society who let television or video games raise their kids. In fact, I think these parents get a bad rap.
We've all heard that familiar refrain.
I still remember fondly the day Rognar, the Inefficient wandered into my little hamlet of Poshdale. He was a muscular guy in iron-plated armor with a huge battle axe strapped on his back. He seemed to my young eyes to be eight feet tall, with a bushy red beard.
Most of the time when you're playing a video game, you're playing a good guy. You're the hero. You're the one who's going to save the world.
Actually, no spoilers, but now that I have your attention.
I love action games, be they first-person shooters or third-person shoot-em-ups. I'm not as big on platformers, but they can be fun at times.
Waaaaaaaaaaay back in February 2011, I mentioned how Andy McNamara helped me transfer my Game Informer subscription from magazine to digital mag. I've been enjoying it that way ever since, except for a brief period (not sure how long) where I let my subscription lapse because I wasn't reading the mag on my computer like I had hoped I would (so I was issues behind).
Was planning on doing two blogs a week, but last weekend got away from me.

Some of you may remember that I've been getting into board games a lot lately. While I am getting back into the video game groove, I still enjoy the thought of playing cards or moving pieces around on a board, and I've even joined a bi-weekly gaming group here in Vancouver that scratches that itch.
