How’s Aboot a 2014 GOaTY List, eh?

It’s aboot der time den bucks. In Canada we don’t believe in spelling out acronyms, so from here on out, I will be pronouncing it as Goaty. I lamented for days about how I was going to write my Goaty blog, as this is the fi...

 
 
 

Happy Festivus!

From closer to the North Pole than any of you suckers. I really shouldn’t write this blog, because I’m only 1/3 way through writing my 2014 blog, but seeing all the Christmas posts today has put me in such a holiday spirit!...

 
 
 

The World Sleeps

Guess Who’s Back, Back Again…

Scholar’s back. Missed his friends. This blog post will sort of be like the soft opening of a new club. You know that the real party is coming soon, but the soft opening prepares you for what to expect, gets you ready for it. Wel...

 
 
 

Play With Me

I swear I had something for this... This past weekend, I had the pleasure of gaming for several hours with a fellow Dtoider, and I have to say, it was one of my best gaming experiences in a while now.  It really makes a difference...

You probably haven't noticed, (although I sure have) but I have been away from the Dtoid community for almost 3 weeks now.  I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you all that I already miss you more than some ridiculous gami...

 
 
 

One Xbox Fanboy's expedition into PS4.

or: How I Learned to Stop Bitching and Play Everything....   And he was never heard from again. I did it. It may seem hard for a lot of you to believe, especially with all of my vehement arguing for Microsoft and the Xbox One...

 
 
 

Slump Central, CAN. Population: Me.

Haven't really written anything in a while, either here, or on my thesis.  And actually generally speaking, I haven't done too much productive in the last little while either.  I think this may turn into a rant.  Here's me promising no edit...

Jeez Louise Nazis!
