Fatal Frame 2 gave me a workout

I’m not generally big on horror games. I liked the Resident Evil series, but if we’re being honest, that contains more action than genuine horror. Yet, I Fatal Fame 2.

Skyrim girls experienced growth spurts

As I’ve said multiple times in the past, I have modded the ever loving crap out of my Skyrim game. This occasionally leads to odd situations, such as the intro sequence breaking down, or Jarl Ulfric having a gag over his mouth for the entire game. This time around, it seems to have caused a more »

I have a Skyrim stalker

Skyrim has a lot of fun sandbox tidbits. Amongst those is the ability to invite certain adventurers along. They follow you, carry your stuff, attack your enemies, and are capable of doing a few other things depending on who they are.

I’m pretty sure I’m a terrible Skyrim parent

Skyrim is an amazing sandbox, letting you do a number of things that don’t impact gameplay, but are hilariously fun to do. Amongst those things is adopting children. There’s not a lot you can do with the children, of course. They live in your house, call you mama or papa, and occasionally ask for money. more »

Skyrim has amusing, amazing collision glitches

As you may have suspected from the plethora of articles I’ve written about it, I play a great deal of Skyrim. It’s a wonderful game, with beautiful graphics and amazing gameplay. But sometimes, things don’t exactly work the way the programmer planned it. People wind up in the air, or inside of things that they’re more »

My video game prowess used to earn me girlfriends

When I was much younger, the hardest video game in my library was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the . To this day, some people claim it was impossible to beat, but I know better. I know it wasn’t impossible because I was at an age where beating it meant I had a girlfriend. I’m more »

I play Skyrim in weird ways

Skyrim is a sandbox game in the truest sense of the word. It gives you a big play area, and allows you to run around and play in it however and where ever you’d like. As such, it’s hard to find a way to play Skyrim incorrectly. If you want to steal from everyone, you more »
