RIP Marvel Heroes

It’s funny, I am both sad that Marvel Heroes Omega is gone, and completely unsurprised by it.  MH has long been my most played game on Steam, and thoroughly scratched my Diablo itch by providing fun Action RPG gameplay in a non-obnoxious free to play model.  The writing was on the wall when David Brevik… Continue reading RIP Marvel Heroes

Game Thoughts – No Man’s Sky

I’m not calling this a review as I’m not that far in, but I already have a lot of complicated thoughts about No Man’s Sky.  Here they are in no particular order: Is it any good?  I don’t…know?  Seriously, I can see how some people can tune into it – there is something zen about scooting around… Continue reading Game Thoughts – No Man’s Sky

I had fun, time-consuming games like Final Fantasy and Uncharted Waters, and didn’t need any new console just for better graphics. Then I was informed Final Fantasy II was coming to that newfangled SNES. Someone brought their system and the… Continue reading Old Game Tuesday – Final Fantasy VI
