Collecting Physical Movies

I recently read an article on people who are still buying DVDs and it got me thinking of my own history of DVDs and I have a fair amount to say on the subject. First of all… I really hate how that article considers DVDs, Blu-Rays, and 4K all the same thing. If you are buying 4K movies, you are the same as people who buy DVDs.. and that’s a strange connection. Sure, they are all disc-based, but so was Laserdisc. (Also as an aside, Samsung made DVD, Sony made BluRay.) But I digress… When DVD was first announced, I …

Final Fantasy Pixel Remake Review

Every year over the past 7 or 8 years or so I spend time near the end of the year replaying the original Final Fantasy. I do it as sort of a reminder to myself of why I love games and a slight reminder of whom I used to be. Each year I play the game a little differently… I’ve played all fighters, all mages, all blackbelts… this year it was time to play as all thieves. I’ve also played in different formats, for instance, last year I chose to play it on the NES mini. So this year I …

A Month of Glimesh

It has been a little over a month since I began streaming on Glimesh. I decided not to stream the first couple of days because, for one, the game I was going to play wasn’t in my hands anyway, but I also knew that there were going to be a lot of crashes the first couple of days and I hoped that they would be gone for the most part if I just waited a tad. I do think the servers were better by the time I got streaming, but it wasn’t really until a full week later that they really …

It’s Glimesh Time!

I had already been contemplating the idea of returning to streaming pretty much since last November. But I had been doing a fair job of talking myself out for the most part. Obviously, I have gotten very close. But one of the things that had really been stopping me is that I just don’t like the streaming services that are available. I think had I had this urge and Mixer was still around, I would have been streaming for the last few months already. I just don’t want to support Facebook & Amazon… and Google is putting almost no …

Gaming Timesink

Today I realized that I don’t really play a lot of different games anymore. The last few weeks I’ve been playing Stellaris… the same game that I was making youtube videos of when I was doing youtube still like 3 or 4 years ago. The game really hasn’t changed that much, which may be part of the reason I still enjoy it, but even beside this game which I recently just picked back up in the last few weeks… if I think back on the games that I’ve played over the last year… it’s Stellaris, Imperator, Animal Crossing, Stardew Valley, …
