  • Trekking through Oblivion to Skyrim: One last playthrough(s) for Oblivion.

  • A Few Announcements Regarding Community Update/Writer's Guild

    3

    Games are inspired by reality in so many different ways, especially by story and plot. Sure, there isn't much of a similarity between real life and a game when the galaxy is under attack by a sentient race of god-like machines, or when zombies infest a tropical paradise.  There are, however, connections between some current international events, and other scenarios that games offer to gamers.

  • Weekly Coverage 9/10/11

    Last week, I didn't write this blog, because I was too busy. But, it's back again and there's nothing to worry about. Oh, and I've just decided I'm not posting the time it was posted at, because that information is just useless, now... More
  • Thoughts: Approaching 100,000 Gamerscore

    14
    I started blogging on this site, last year, with blogs about my pursuit of 75,000 gamerscore. While these blogs were a good starter series, I decided to stop the series after it became apparent to me that the blogs were repetitive and hard to keep track... More
