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 the hours of jo...

 
 
 

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 accepted the possibil...

 
 
 

DapperMouse, Destroyer of Worlds

Having decided to take advantage of the fundraiser/sale going on at gog.com 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 receive a mass...

 
 
 

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 the hang of The ...

 
 
 

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 impressive achievem...

 
 
 

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 library. I remembe...

 
 
 

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 Les Miserables b...

 
 
 

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, but playing th...

 
 
 

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 that blank sta...

 
 
 
 

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 friends the trut...

 
 
 

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 and more at the t...

 
 
 

Animal Crossing

*Disclaimer*  I have been playing the shit of out Animal Crossing: New Leaf for about a month now. Do real people actually play these games? I mean, yes, I just admitted to playing them but I'm not a real person.  I'm a horrible example o...

 
 

About DapperMouseone of us since 7:47 PM on 08.18.2013

Hello all!

I woke up one day and realized that I was no longer content not sharing bits of my personal life and opinions with strangers on the internet. In my spare time I enjoy long walks in the rain, breathing, and naming kittens after obscure literary references.
