The End of My Blogging Journey

This is it guys. After an entire year of blogging, this is the last one in my challenge. It's been a lot of fun, and I want to thank all of you for joining me on it. The video is about 26 minutes long so you may want to play it in the background, but I think it's a nice capstone to the entire year.




It's hard to believe this is done. I'll post a quick giveaway results video tomorrow, but otherwise I'm not too sure what my blogging schedule will look like. I'm always willing to discuss any topic you guys want to see, so let me know if you have any ideas. Make sure you follow me on Facebook since I'll still be posting links to my posts and interacting with you guys on there, so keep an eye out!

See you in 2014!

Remember to follow me on Facebook! I'm doing a blog post every single day for 2013, and Facebook is a great way to stay up-to-date as well as take part in my monthly giveaways. This is my last month of guaranteed giveaways, so don't miss out on a free copy of Super Dungeon Explore, a painting project, and more! Click here for details!

Hardcore Diaries - Minecraft Is Hard(core)

When playing a game on hardcore mode, there are no continues and no extra lives. If you die, all of your progress is completely deleted. I've never played a hardcore game because the pressure of spending hours, only to die because someone was talking to you while playing is a heartbreaking thought.

That being said, I decided to take my own advice and try an aspect of gaming I'd never explored before. With that in mind I downloaded Minecraft, set it to hardcore mode, and began what could be a new series to the blog. Enjoy!

Through the Wringer


[Warning: most of this was written using my iPhone's voice-to-text feature. I've tried to go through and clean it up, but I'm fairly certain something will have slipped through. For added fun, read the "bonus content" to see what it looked like originally.]

The Last of Us - Gaming's Greatest Story

If you haven't played The Last of Us and don't want any spoilers, this is not the post for you. Call in to work, send your family off to a friend's, and spend the next few days playing it, then come back.

For the rest of you, let's talk about the best story I've ever experienced.

Warmachine Tactics - Photo Breakdown

I'll be honest, I had a lot of fun with my Countdown to Cyriss series. The excitement of a new army was one thing, but I really enjoyed taking limited information and trying to extrapolate what the army could be. I'm getting excited for the Warmachine Tactics Kickstarter project that starts on July 10th, so I hope you'll indulge me as I take a walk through the three images they've released so far and try to figure out what it could mean for this potentially amazing game.

Land of the Freemium

Here in the states it's Independence Day. In the spirit of festivity I thought I'd write about something that's vaguely related to a synonym of "independence." Let's talk about "freemium" games.

Happy 6 Month Anniversary!

It's official, my year-long goal of blogging every day has reached the half-way mark without missing a single day! I thought I'd take today to look back at the experience and share what it's meant to me.

Lose With Purpose


I'm really happy with this article. I use Warmachine as my main example, but I believe it can apply to any game you play.

Time After Time

Why is this song stuck in my head? Why is it actually inspiring a blog post? Shame on me.

Back to Square One

If you're one of those who makes it a point to ignore all gaming news, you probably missed the announcement that Microsoft dropped some of its more controversial policies after E3. Namely, the new system will no longer require "always online," and the used game market will remain as it is, allowing us to buy, sell, and trade games at our leisure.

Rest Time Reviews - Warhammer Quest (iOS)

Rest Time Reviews is a series for those with limited time to play video games. While I'll discuss the game as a whole, I also focus on whether or not a game is literally a waste of time. This RTR is all about Warhammer Quest.

Starting Them Young - Emma's First Game!

Emma and I finally sat down and played RPGKids using the figure she painted. We were both very excited, and as I reread the rules I realized that it'd probably be more fun if she controlled 2 (at least until my son is ready to join her!). I grabbed a dwarf from my Warhammer Fantasy starter set, to which she immediately replied "Um, Dad? Can I have a painted one?" Find a dad who was more proud at that moment!
