Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN Preview: The Hype is Real

After spending some time with the Guilty Gear Xrd SIGN (whew) demo, I’m more sold than I probably already was. If you have a PS4 and PlayStation Plus, get your ass on your TV and download it, ASAP. I don’t even know where to start. It’s gorgeous. It’s air-tight. It’s exciting. It’s even super satisfying more »

My 5 Funniest Dragon Age Inquisition moments so far

My 5 Funniest Dragon Age Inquisition moments so far I’m getting close to the 40 hour point with Dragon Age Inquisition, and am about ready to put together the Technology Tell Gaming Channel’s official review. But, before I get to that, I’m in a sharing mood. I’ve seen a lot of amazing things in this more »

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Diary: Show off your Secret Bases

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Diary: Show off your Secret Bases If you’re playing Pokemon Alpha Sapphire or Omega Ruby, it won’t be long before you get the opportunity to make an area of the game your own. I’m talking about the return of the Secret Base feature. Granted, it doesn’t happen until you’ve reached Route 111, more »

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Diary: Love that Cosplay Pikachu

I am in love. I have a new favorite Pokemon, which is weird because it’s also an old one. Pokemon Alpha Sapphire has shown me the majesty of Cosplay Pikachu and I don’t think I can go back to a regular Pokemon again. Not when I now know I can have an adorable Pikachu, with more »

Dragon Age Inquisition has too many mountains

I’m a certain kind of Dragon Age Inquisition player. I relish taking on every sidequest and exploring every corner of the map. Rush through the story? Pshaw! There are more important things to do. You know, like clearing every marker off of a location’s map. The problem is, doing so has convinced me that the more »


Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Diary: Creeping with DexNav

In an earlier Pokemon Alpha Sapphire diary installment, I mentioned that the way in which some daily scenes are depicted makes the game feel more immersive and natural. That isn’t the only thing that makes the Pokemon world feel more real this time. The other is the DexNav. The DexNav is an improved version of more »

Super Mario Bros. 3′s pyramid level is terrifying when you’re drunk

Last night, I hung out with some friends. As is our habit, we decided to get drunk and play . It turns out, I’m not very good at Super Mario Bros. 3 when I’m drunk, but then, that almost goes without saying. I got as far as the pyramid level in World 2 before I more »

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Diary: A Specific Trainer’s Tale

I loved the trainer customization in Pokemon X and Y. Typically, I hoard away any and all money earned from Pokemon battles, only occasionally busting open the pocketbook to buy a TM or two, but the first 3DS games in the series inspired me to splurge on everything so my trainer could be super pretty. more »


Dragon killing is easy in Dragon Age Inquisition

Dragons are a big deal in the Dragon Age series. They have to be in that virtual world, for its inhabitants to use them to determine times and dates. Which is why I found it a bit odd that it was so easy to slay my first dragon in Dragon Age Inquisition. I’d heard the more »

I know why the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC annoys me

For the longest time, essentially since I started playing the game, the Skyrim Dawnguard DLC has bugged me. I couldn’t put my finger on why, either. I enjoyed the addition of crossbows into the game. I absolutely adore the new armor, and it’s my favorite looking armor next to the Imperial Studded armor. Plus, I’ve more »

I take the Xbox Marketplace way too seriously

Target was recently having a “buy one, get one 25% off” discount on game cards. I’d been considering buying some Microsoft cards for a while since I haven’t actually bought a new Xbox 360 game since Walking Dead season one (so long ago, I know). The way I figured it, 25% off is better than more »

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Diary: Inspired Beginnings

The one thing I remember most about Pokemon Sapphire was how my new Pokemon trainer’s adventure began. For the first time, questions about my identity and my beginnings seemed natural, as my character was moving to a new region and even hopped out of the back of a moving van in the first few moments. more »
