I started this blog over two years ago, and i’ve had a blast working on it. However, it’s now time for me to move on. I’ve now got a PS4 and am going to start trying to do more reviews for games that are more current, and thus I can no longer take on the moniker of “poor mans geek”. By the time you read this i’ll have started my new pages, “Ludophile Lab” and “What William’s Watching”. I’ll still be doing reviews, trailer impressions and editorials, but i’ll no longer be doing them on this site.
If I’m following you, then I enjoy your content and for the first few hours, days or however long it takes, i’ll go about re-following everyone I follow now so that I may keep up with your content, and I hope that, if you follow me now, you’ll follow me on my new pages as well.
Due to the time sesative nature of this i’m not going to add much and just let the Nostalgia Critic’s video do the talking, but if you’re in the US, you should send an email or call the number provided.
It’s been a long and exhausting three months, but today I’m officially done with winter quarter. I still have finals to do this coming Tuesday and Wednesday, but I am done with classes! And unless I really screw up my finals (which I don’t think I will) i’ll also finish off with pretty good grades as well. My lowest grade at the moment is a pretty high 70(i missed one assignment and the class didn’t have much work to begin with, that really screwed me over) but if I do well on the final I’m pretty sure I can bring that up to a low to mid 80.
It’ll be nice to have some time off to rest and binge watch Daredevil season 2 when it’s released tomorrow. Plus this will hopefully give me more time to play games to review, at lest for a couple weeks. And if everything goes according to plan, sometime next month I should be able to upgrade my equipment and start doing current gen reviews! So over all, I’m really happy at the moment. I hope you all are having as good a day as I am. Feel free to tell me how your doing in the comments.
Back in November of last year I reviewed Dark Souls 2, but I never got around to beating as I often have to move from one game to the next. The fact that the game simply didn’t live up to the first game didn’t help matters much either. But with Dark Souls 3 coming out next month and Destructoid’s Joe Parlock doing a video series of him Beating Souls bosses I decided to sit down and finish the game properly. And as I did last time I thought I’d give you all my thoughts on the experience.
In the end, I still agree with everything I wrote in the review. It never quite reaches “bad” territory, but it never gets past “unremarkable”. I’ll probably give it another go to get my Souls fix before I can get Bloodbourn and Dark Souls 3 (which I’m hoping I can do sometime next month), but this made me regret trading in both Dark and Demons Souls, as I truly believe they are better games all around.
So, i don’t like asking for things, but this has become something of a necessity.In order to keep doing what i’m doing with this blog (and hopefully expand in the near future) while also being able to live, i’m asking for your help. I’ve now added a tip jar to my page and any donations you can give will be a great benefit to me and my family. If you can’t spar anything, that’s fine; believe me, i understand that times are hard. But if you like what i do and you can throw a few bucks my way, i’d appreciate it a lot. If you do, i’ll add you to my Contributors page with a link to your personal or professional page.
You may or may not remember a few months ago i made this post about how i was heading back to college after having to take about a year off. Well today (12/4/2015) i am finally finished with Fall Quarter. I still have to due finals, but they’re both online so I’m not really counting that. So until next quarter starts this January I’m officially on break. Thank you all for sticking with me while i’ve been off, it’s really appreciated.
If the title didn’t give it away, i just reached 200 followers. This was something of a mile stone i was hoping to reach this year, and I’d just like to give each and every one of you a big “Thank You”. I have a lot of issues when it comes to self doubt and the like, so it really does mean a lot to me that so many of you enjoy my work at lest enough to have it on your dash board. Again, thank you guys so much. I hope to content bringing you that you enjoy.
Just like last year i’ll be taking a look at four films from one of the most acclaimed American Film Makers of all time, Martin Scorsese. Join me each Tuesday this month as I review a different movie spanning his 40+ year directing career. So get ready for a lot of Gangsters, Tracking Shots and Rolling Stones.
Hello in welcome to Horror Month 2015, my second celebration of the horrific, the grotesque and the macabre. If slashers and serial killers are what you’re looking for, come have a seat. If mutants, monsters and madmen are more to your thing, have a look around, i’m sure you’ll find something to your liking. Join me every Saturday from now until Halloween as i review another a new horror movie each week.
After having to take about a year off, tomorrow i am finally going back to school. This is something i’ve been looking forward too for awhile now, and it’s super important i do well, so this blog is going to take a bit of a back seat. I’m going to try and keep it going, but i may not be able to post many reviews for the next few months (aside from the Scorsese Month and Horror Month stuff i’ve already got queued for October and November).
