Spinning my Charge Blade in Monster Hunter: World

I’m still recovering from the sickness, and it’s been slow-going. It’s frustrating because I know that I have to take it easy in order to get better, but I’m impatient for it to just be done already. I did jump in my recovery last night to about 50%, which is up from roughly 10%. I… Continue Reading

Monster Hunter: World grinding harder and faster

Before jumping into Monster Hunter: World, I have to vent my spleen about casual games, which I’ve played for years. Before I was a ‘hardcore gamer’, I played Hidden Object, Match-3, Solitaire, and Time Management games. Big Fish Games is the Steam of casual games, and I have a membership there, which means I get… Continue Reading

Gonna make me sweat

The full crud hit me on Thursday, and I’ve been slogging through it ever since. I spent Thursday, Friday, and Saturday feeling like complete and utter shit. Today (Sunday), I woke up feeling a bit better, and I’m hoping it means that I’m on the tail end of this thing, or at least the legs… Continue Reading

I’m thinking of doing an overhaul to my website in general, but it’s in the very nascent stages. Just… Continue Reading

A ton more Monster Hunter: World–and a little bit of Dead Cells

I’ve played a shit-ton of Monster Hunter: World this week, but we’ll get to that in a second. Dead Cells was officially released on August 6th, and I reinstalled it to see if I could finally beat the goddamn boss at the end of the (Early Access) game. I’ve written several posts about it and… Continue Reading

Monster Hunter: World; my new Dark Souls

I’ve mentioned that when Monster Hunter: World was released on consoles, I got unreasonably hyped about it. Why unreasonably? Because I played the previous iteration on 3DS and HATED it. Oh my god, it was so terrible. I hated everything about it, but not because of the game itself. I hated it because I don’t… Continue Reading
