The Past: Wonder is everything

Roughly 21 years ago my parents bought me a SNES. They tell me now it was for a birthday but I can't remember. One day I didn't have a SNES, the next day I did. Its all sort of relative at that age.  What I can remember are ...   read

Is Realism important?

Warning: There are some minor spoilers  Nothing strikes more fear into my heart than the words "Gritty, Realistic Reboot".  It didn't use to be this way. At one time, in the distant past of 2004, I would have quickly accept...   read

DapperMouse, Destroyer of Worlds

Having decided to take advantage of the fundraiser/sale going on at I snagged a copy of FTL. I had played for a few hours before something struck me. Something horrible. Somewhere, an unsuspecting planet was about to...   read

My 7th Generation: DapperMouse the Rat Killer

First experiences are always the ones that linger the longest.  The moment that most quintessentially defined the 7th console generation for me happened in the five minutes of my Xbox gaming experience. I was still getting t...   read

What I Learned on my trip to San Andreas

In the few short weeks GTA Online has been live I've made decent progress. As of writing this I'm level 18 and have about $120,000 squirreled away. It doesn't sound like a lot but as far as I'm concerned this is a pretty impr...   read

The Bitter Truth

As I've blogged before, I've recently started replaying my older games and consoles. Most of these games I've owned for close, or even over, twenty years but some I've picked up from local gaming shops with a decent retro lib...   read

Upon Arriving late to the Party

My life really has one consistent theme. I never experience anything while it is still culturally relevant. For example: My wonderful girlfriend, thinking it would be a nice Valentines' Day present, bought me a copy of the L...   read

Throw away Nostalgia, We can never go Home

About a week ago (okay six days, WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ME?) I wrote a blog about missing the good old days when gaming was easier. Well not "easier" per se, games could be incredibly difficult back then just as they could now,...   read

Thoughts on my impending Console break up

I put down my controller and attempted to come out of the haze I had been in. I had something to say and I knew Oberon had to hear it. I sighed, took a breath, and just let it out. “You’ve changed.” Oberon looked at me with...   read

In defense of Dragon Age or: How living in a Fantasy World would be awful

I've always had a problem with the Dragon Age series. I've played them over and over and am eagerly awaiting the release of Inquisition but something has never felt quite right. It's almost as if the pacing is both too fast a...   read

Gaming with DapperMouse

As a general rule I prefer to game alone. Not just alone but in silence, in a darkened room, with incense burning.  "Woah." You might say.  "What sort of hippie-dippie New Age Pagan bullshit are you into DapperMouse?" Well f...   read

Ave Imperator, morituri te salutant

Two weeks from today Rome 2: Total War launches. I want it.  No... I need it.   I need it like a dying man needs water. I watch the trailers and read all the news. Each day as the calendar ticks closer I salivate more an...   read
