Geeking Out!

Monument Valley is Mesmerizing

September 9, 2016

A couple of months ago, while staring down another end of month without much data left on my phone (Thanks Twitter and PokemonGo!) I went looking for a quick puzzle game for on the bus or lunch break. After passing over a dozen or more Candy-Crush wannabes I settled on Monument Valley by Ustwo games

Ain't No Party Like a Dwarf Party

Last night was Ryan's last night in the Sault for a while and unbeknownst to him I had a little surprise planned; a night of table top roleplaying with some of our friends! Unfortunately with the surgery and kid wrangling I had an idea but no energy or time to make an adventure, nevermind create…

Justifying my Existance

December 30, 2015

I've been tweeting a lot about feminism and gaming. My mentions have, to noone's surprise, been alight with all the dudes (and it's almost entirely dudes) who want to tell me how good I have it, how useless, how inconsequential, and how wrong I am. Like so many years ago at teacher's college when th…

FanExpo Canada 2015 THE BLOG

September 11, 2015

Well holy Hera, we're back! Our vacation that we've been planning and dreaming about for the last year is over. We decided to do the geekiest thing possible and save our cash, book at hotel in Chinatown in downtown Toronto, and spend four solid days at FanExpo Canada with probably close to 100,000 o…

Cosmos Is Back

March 17, 2014

I was watching the clock like a hawk watches a plump rabbit; at 8:30 it was bedtime for my son, Gabe, but my daughter Kat was still fighting it. At 8:51 we laid her down *again* with the hopes that she would finally fall asleep. We waited. She seemed to be down, so I scampered upstairs, snagged a sn…

LoZ: A Link Between Worlds

December 6, 2013

It may have come up before a time or two but it's worth stating again; I got my start as a gamer on the SNES (that's the Super Nintendo Entertainment System for you young whippersnappers out there) with Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Secret of Mana, Illusion of Gaia, Chrono Trigger, Mario Kart …

Zelda RPG Part 1

September 11, 2013

So we FINALLY started the LoZ RPG I wrote about a couple of weeks ago and we had a blast. As expected, Gabe got into trouble right off the bat with one of the Hyrule Castle guards but Ryan and I are nothing if not quick thinking and flexible and turned the would-be mishap into an opportunity.

Gab…

Steampunk Zelda

September 9, 2013

Well how cool is this? I'd say VERY. I'm a big fan of the Legend of Zelda games by Nintendo. My first was Link to the Past which debuted on the SNES during the mid-90's, and I've played a few since then (but never beaten them; Ocarina of Time, Four Swords, Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess, though…

Reefclaws and F**king Sharks

September 5, 2013

When I was sixteen or seventeen I started playing table top RPGs for the first time. A couple of my friends were into it and they invited me to play but I was hesitant. They seemed...too enthusiastic about it, a little over eager that I should join them, but as I discovered much later, passion is wh…

Legend of Zelda RPG

August 19, 2013

For a very long time I've wanted to play the Legend of Zelda RPG game found at Kobold's Keep. Years back I downloaded it but with moving to a new computer it mostly got lost. Between myself and Ryan we've tinkered now and then with updating it to 3.5, and now we're taking a crack at making it Path…
