So then I thought I would just answer all… Continue reading 30 Day Geek Out Challenge…in 1 Day

Five Contenders for Family Game Night (Cabin-In-The-Woods Edition)

So next month my family is taking a trip out to the-middle-of-nowhere-Ohio to enjoy a little peace and quiet in a nice cabin. We booked the cabin considering essentially one main factor: it’s far away from people, places, and things. This is excellent for de-stressing, but it also means we’ll have to provide our own… Continue reading Five Contenders for Family Game Night (Cabin-In-The-Woods Edition)

Why The Google Stadia Will Eventually Meet Its End

The industry needed a decent competitor to take on the video game giants Microsoft, Nintendo, and the great Sony.
