The last blog I posted was on April 12 of this year, and it dealt with my thoughts about becoming a soon-to-be father and how this would affect my gaming habits. I won't go in to too much detail on what happened between then ...
My wife and I are having a baby. Iíve written variations on this sentence many times now over the last week while texting people to notify them of the good news, sending emails to friends and family to let them know, or on Fa...
Back in the early 1990s I was a big Sega fanboy. I was the proud owner of a Sega Megadrive (Genesis for the American readers out there), and as a diehard Sega fan I regularly purchased Sega gaming magazines. One of my favouri...
I love rain. I love the sound of rain, especially on a tin roof. I love watching rain as it trickles down a window. I love the earthy smell of a rain shower after a hot day. I love how soothing rain is, and how relaxing it ca...
In January 2011 I got married to the love of my life. No, I didn't get married to video games. I got married to a real, human woman! We decided not to take a honeymoon straight after the marriage. Instead, we planned to wait ...

It's funny what random things can spark video game memories. Yesterday my wife and I went to a barbecue out at a friend's place in the countryside. It's about 30 minutes outside of Nelson and the drive is filled with beautifu...
Last night, as is traditional for me on a Friday night, I stayed up once my wife had gone to bed so that I could get some game time in. I was at a loss for what to play, so I had a scroll through my games that I'd downloaded ...
I donít really have much of a history with the Ultima series of games. Other than vague memories of my older brother playing the games on his Amiga 500 when I was a kid, and a brief stint playing Ultima Online around 1999, I ...
I bought a three day pass to PAX Australia! This is kind of a big deal. Living at the ass-end of the world (New Zealand) I always dreamed of one day attending a big gaming show like PAX or E3, but in reality I realised it pro...
