Quick Battle Calculator’s for Neptune’s Pride

15 February, 2010 (15:56) | Gaming | By: Brian

This week I discovered a great browser-based 4x game called “Neptune’s Pride.” Take Master of Orion with real-time fleet movement, slim down the tech tree and add a dash of Diplomacy and you have this game. It’s free, it’s elegant and it’s fun, all things I look for in a game. To help me with [...]

Amazing looking 11th-hour game of the year candidate

10 December, 2009 (12:28) | Gaming | By: Brian

As my addiction to the Puzzle Quest games and Gyromancer will no doubt attest, I’m a fan of the puzzle/RPG hybrid genre that has sprung up recently on handhelds and the PC. I suppose Bookworm Adventures might also count. This week Capybara Games (totally awesome name!) released an impressive-looking entry into the field which takes [...]

In Which the pile does not reduce in size

19 November, 2009 (17:03) | Gaming | By: Brian

Recently I finished a Japanese role-playing game for the DS called “The World Ends With You.” It was very interesting and quirky. I highly enjoined the game’s battle system which was fast-paced and used the stylus well. The story convoluted and bizarre, but got better toward the end. The collecting/upgrading/pokemon aspect of it was well [...]

In Which a Game Is Finished

14 April, 2009 (10:07) | Gaming | By: Brian

I’ve finally made a dent in my Pile O’ Shame: the list of unfinished video games. Last night I finished the main story of Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords for the DS. I may still fiddle with it on occasion to finish side quests and unlock some things, but I saw credits roll and [...]

A 25 Things Thing

31 January, 2009 (00:08) | Family, Gaming, Grammar, Hockey, Life In General, Lynn, Volleyball | By: Brian

This silly game has been running rampant on Facebook. I know there are a couple of people reading this who aren’t on Facebook, so I thought I’d copy it over. Do NOT feel obligated to copy this and do your own thing. I hate chain letter/forward games and try not to pass them on. 1. [...]

New Business

24 January, 2009 (11:26) | Family, Gaming, Life In General, Lynn, Mike, Railroad, Violin, Volleyball | By: Brian

“Do we have any new business?” Yes! In the last half year I’ve picked up some new hobbies. I’m sure some old ones have fallen off, but that’s life as an adult with ADD, right? Ooooh, shiny! I think the biggest new news is the acquiring of my new roommate, Mike. My old roommate, Dan, [...]

Summer Bearcat Schedule

10 July, 2008 (16:23) | Gaming, Hockey, Life In General | By: Brian

Well, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, my summer hockey schedule. As I previously posted, our first game was a spectacular win. We hope to follow it up with more. Sorry there’s no weekend games that would be convenient for friends and family, these are some of the worst times I have ever seen [...]

Bearcats C Wins Their Opener!

9 July, 2008 (07:12) | Gaming, Hockey, Life In General, Lynn, Mobile | By: Brian

My adult hockey team played its opening game for the summer and we started in grand fashion with a 2-0 win. We had star performances from our latest goaltending acquisition, Scott, and our two lady centers, Erin and Britney. Scott has played a handful of times for us and we hope to make him a [...]

Finding Time

7 July, 2008 (16:35) | Family, Gaming, Hockey, Life In General, Mobile | By: Brian

Here I am again, sorry it’s been so long. I’ve been pretty busy after work lately and on weekends, and it’s been hard to write. However, I have made a change that will hopefully rectify that a bit. One of the many things that has changed since my last post is the acquisition of a [...]
