Crisis of Goals: Elite Dangerous

I am having a crisis of goals in Elite Dangerous.  The unknown calls to me.  Seeing things nobody has ever seen is begging me to grab an Asp Explorer and head out of the bubble.  Then the allure of the shit ton of money ...

 
 
 
 

Ranking the MCU Films Part 2-Top 10

Welcome back to my blog ranking the MCU films from my least to most favorite! This is where the list gets hard. The gaps between the remaining films are narrow. I saved the best for last. Perhaps you'll agree, but perhaps not. Please s...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Game In Progress: March 2019

Who has two thumbs and STILL didn't make progress on his game? THIS freakin' guy, again!! No, but seriously life just enjoys thowing curveballs my way. Except instead of curveballs, they're meteors hurtling towards my no-no spot. ...

 
 
 
 

Demon of Hatred: A Short Sekiro Guide

Somehow you've managed to get this far. You run in, you die. You run in, you die. You haven't taken off a health bar yet and there are three of them. Whether you're a Souls vet or a newcomer, your stubbornness to power through the gam...

 
 
 
 

Ranking the MCU Films

Band of Bloggers - April 2019

  This month’s theme may make you uncomfortable. Not in like a gross way or anything. Just sort of slightly uncomfortable. Like stepping into a small bit of water and now your sock is slightly damp kind of uncomfortable. Lik...

 
 
 
 

Band of Bloggers: Team Battle

When I heard the theme for this month's BoB, cooperative games I was a little concerned. I don't usually play games with anyone else, and even if they have co-op in them, I usually can't find anyone who would want to play with me. ...

 
 
 
 

BoB - Shog and Jolly Cooperation

Saturn REVIEWS REPORT: 50 - 41

Unfortunately for my review, the top 50-41 games on Retro Sanctuary are mostly multiplayer focused games. With a regular fighting game, a tank fighting game (that's more like Worms than anything else), and two puzzlers. Other than that...
