Shog's Smarch Gaming Journal

Spring is here and with it comes all of the usual things I’ve come to expect: out-of-nowhere cold snap, tree pollen making my face melt, seasonal depression making a 31-day Month go by as quickly as a 3-day-weekend and, me finall...

 
 
 

BoB - Shog and Jolly Cooperation

This month’s BOB is actually going to be difficult for me because of this awful habit I have of playing games almost exclusively in single player. Looking at the games that I did play this month, all I really see are single playe...

 
 
 

Shog's February Gaming Journal

  February didn’t just come and go in a flash, it was a month where I started planning my first PC build. That’s the subject for another post entirely and I’ll bring up why, exactly I’m going to take a more...

 
 
 

Shog Fox 64-3D-BoB

I’m disappointed in Nintendo for not including an activity log application onto the Nintendo Switch. If you look at your profile, you can see the last twenty applications you’ve used and, if you first used that application ...

 
 
 

Shog's January Gaming Journal

The first month of 2019 has come and gone and like every other January, it came and went pretty quickly. The first few days were wild and slow but after that first week, January did what January does: it makes way for February. Surpris...

 
 
 

Band of Bloggers February 2019 Theme

It’s that special time of year where you’re reminded that it’s a special time of year! No, not that special time of year, it’s that other special time of year: February is the month of love and just like true lo...

 
 
 
 

Shog's December Gaming Journal

So maybe this was unexpected considering I recently released my overview of 2018 as a whole. Here’s the thing though: habits are difficult to break and the worst time to stop doing a thing is when there’s only one more of t...

 
 
 

'Tis the Season: Shog and Holidays

I didn’t mean to put this off until the last minute but I’m completely at a blank when it comes to my Holiday traditions when it comes to gaming. I’m going to brainstorm and see if I can come up with anything on the f...

 
 
 

A Shoggy Look at 2018

If you’ve been following me closely, you’ll likely have noticed that throughout the year, I’ve posted monthly journals (for want of a better word), detailing the games I’ve played that month and my general thoug...

 
 
 

BOB! Shog tries not to spoil Soma

  This month’s Band of Bloggers is all about naughtiness and niceness so of course a part of me wanted to write about DID Napper; an RPG-maker game about a guild of kidnappers. DID Napper is headed by a deviantart person and...

 
 
 

Shog's November Gaming Journal

November! The month when Americans transition from eating hard candy that they put off eating and move onto gorging on softer foods like turkey and potatoes. More importantly though, November is the month when Americans undergo what is...

 
 
 
 

Double Dipping: Shog Loves Final Fantasy!

Double-dipping is kind of a strange thing to think about when it comes to entertainment and consumer goods. I’ve read each of the Harry Potter books over a dozen times each but the only reason I would see myself buying those book...

 
 
 

Shog's Halloween Gaming Journal

It just hit me that this games journal isn’t going to hit until November 1st at the earliest so I’m going to apologize now if you’re sick of Halloween theming. Honestly, there isn’t all that much Halloween theme...

 
 
 

BoB - So you Can't Stay Dead

           Halloween is upon us so I guess it's kind of obvious that this month's band-of-bloggers subject would revolve around the undead. Looking back through my notes of what games I've played this month tho...

 
 
 

Shog's September Games Journal

September has come and gone at a speed that would embarrass January which is a shame because the last week has been really, really nice unless you count the torrential downpour that happened a few times each day. During the past month ...

 
 
 

Shog Reacts to the 9/13 Nintendo Direct

Wooo! Nintendo Direct! I had some pretty high hopes for this Direct considering how Smash-Heavy the last two had been. I enjoy Smash and I’m excited to play the next entry in the series but my Switch is more than just a Smash-Mac...

 
 
 

Shog's August Gaming Journal

Geeze, August is a long, terribly hot and, insufferable month. How lucky I am then to live indoors and with air conditioning so I don’t have to spend too much of my time suffering from environmental damage. Unlike the last couple...

 
 
 

BoB - Shog's Summer Lovin'

I'm really terrible when it comes to remembering things. All throughout my 20's I would forget my age, I have a lot of trouble with people's names and faces and this is an issue I've always had to deal with; I don't even drink or use m...

 
 
 
 

Shog's July Gaming Journal

July has come and gone which is great because I’ve been sick and tired of summer since around March. There have been a few relatively big releases this past month which I would love to talk about but which I haven’t picked ...

 
 
 

A Shoggy Look at the Best Games of All Time

‘The Best Game of All Time’ is one of those descriptors that almost always lead to a fistfight and several lawsuits. Despite the volatile nature of the phrase though, it’s one that gamsters have used and continue sinc...

 
 
 

Shog's June Gaming Journal

2018 is finally more than half-way over and so far it’s been a pretty good year for gaming. It maybe hasn’t been as good as 2017 or, 1999 or, 1992 but boy oh boy has 2018 been great so far and with E3 still fresh in our min...

 
 
 

A Shoggy Look at E3 2018

The Electronics Gaming Expo of 2018 has come and gone and it was certainly something! It could be called remarkable considering how few train wrecks and mishaps happened. As fun as it would be to talk at length about Andrew CK or Sony&...

 
 
 

Shog's May Gaming Journal

Holy Pork-Pies, May was a better month than April for me! I haven’t found a new job but I’m in a good enough place with my current job that I’m not as worried about not being able to have enough for rent so with that ...

 
 
 

A Shoggy Look at Xenoblade Chronicles 2

I did not like Xenoblade Chronicles. I didn’t like the over-the-top English voice acting, I didn’t care about the characters or plot and I really disliked the MMO style auto-combat with special attacks littering the bottom ...

 
 
 

Game Compilations that Disappointed Me

Game compilations can be awesome! I love the idea of buying one disc or one cartridge for the price of a new release and having instant access to multiple full games. I especially like when beating those games unlocks even more full on...

 
 
 

A Shoggy Look at Fast Food

Much like Greenhornet214, I love fast food, grew up eating fast food and, eat it fairly often. I’m essentially just stealing his concept but that doesn’t mean I don’t have my own thoughts, feelings and, preferences wh...

 
 
 

Shog's April Gaming Journal

It’s May and if I’m being completely honest April was kind of a garbage month for me. In order to remedy the anxiety I have due to never having much money, I got myself a second job for about a week before I realized that I...

 
 

About Shoggoth2588one of us since 6:55 AM on 06.03.2013

Hello all! I'm Joe, from Maryland! I released five days before Enix launched Dragon Quest 3! I started playing games around the time I was 3, with some very early memories of myself playing Duck Hunt in my Dad's office and Golden Axe in an arcade at what might have been an airport (It was a weird memory). I'm mostly harmless so if you wanna talk to me, send me a message. I'll be around, making horrible puns though not quite as horrible as Gus' is able to do. I'll lurk on the Discord too and if you want to be my friend there, than come at me!
