Within Emptiness Unobstructed

Today is a pretty hard day for me. This has been a really tough year for me, and as I'm trying to stay positive days like today just really make it difficult.To start, if you know me, you know I'm VERY passionate about music, in partic...

 
 
 
 
 

Xeo's Big Top 10 of 2016!!!

  Well guys, it's 2017 now. So let's talk YOUR best games of 2016. 2016 was actually a pretty good year for gaming, nice variety of genuinely solid games released across the year. But enough time wasting, let's get right to it! 1...

 
 
 

The Overwatch Double Standard.

Today we're gonna compare Overwatch to a game. Not Battleborn, that's been done to death, this is a game even more far removed than those two. (Let's be honest, if you've played both of those games they're really not very similar at al...

 
 
 

STORY TIME WITH XEO II: Knocking

Foreward: Knocking is a short story (a creepypasta if you'd prefer) I wrote based solely on a dream, or rather a nightmare I had. One of the few I've had in any recent years that had me actually waking with a jumping start and in ...

 
 
 

STORY TIME WITH XEO! Here's some original writing.

Most of you probably do not know, but I write, a lot. Often in just shitty rough drafts, since I'm no editor and rarely anyone ever reads anything I write anyway. But I figured it was time to share something I just finished, I'm proud of it...

 
 
 

Heavy Metal Haymaker

I've talked much on here about my love for heavy metal, a love that's actually even greater for my love of video games. See, I've played video games since the late 80's nonstop, and I guess it IS my main hobby. However heavy metal is the ho...

 
 
 
 

Xeo's Top 10 of 2015!

Wow, what a year for gamers 2015 was! Lots of great games. While far from the best year for me personally, I still enjoyed many awesome games. So enough of this, let's get right down to it. Now, unfortunately I'm not rich and can't play eve...

 
 

Re: Clanging bells. Thick incense. Blood...so much blood. The sound of dogs, drunk on death, ring in my ears. Men sweat in their rags, clutching their heads, crying soundlessly. I stand on the rain-slick precipice of darkness and take a step into the abys

 
 
 

Borderlands: A Love/Hate Relationship

Allow me to start this by saying, that if you know me, you know I loathe Randy Pitchford. He's a scumbag, shirks blame for anything and more. I won't rant about him for an hour here, but I strongly dislike him. So his studio/company Gearbox...

 
 
 

Dust the Gloves Off

I watched the Capcom Cup finals with my wife and some good friends this past weekend through a stiff migraine. It was still a good time and pretty exciting. More so considering this was probably the last major event to be headlined by Stree...

 
 
 
 

The entitled gamer.

The recent "controversy" of Square-Enix announcing that the Final Fantasy VII Remake is going to end up being multiple parts has sparked this blog entry. I won't get into why I'm ok with this announcement and just say I'll reserve anything ...

 
 
 

Star Wars: Battlefront Beta Discussion

Gaming Discussion time. This time I'm gonna be covering the Star Wars: Battlefront beta I know it's actually a lot to ask for, but I was really hoping that EA/DICE would treat this more like the CoD Black Ops 3 beta and trickle out more ...

 
 
 

Metal Gear Online 3.0 is a Fucking Mess.

Game rant time. Feel free to start a roundtable discussion about this. Today's topic, Metal Gear Online 3.0. (This is long, bear that in mind.) Let me start this by saying I'm an MGO veteran starting with the original on PS2 that came wi...

 
 
 

The Mundane and the Magic

Been a bit since I've logged anything on here. Honestly it's been a rough ride. Things are rough at home. Wife just underwent surgery, I'm feeling like utter hell half the time and killing myself physically trying to get back into the shape...

 
 
 

I'm Washed Up (Street Fighter is a Young Man's Game)

Hey there, those who stopped to read this. I'm washed up. I'm 31 years old, my hairline is receding, and I'm starting to look like Stannis Baratheon (Before his hair grayed out. I guess I'm not THAT old yet.) I have kids, get frustrate...

 
 
 

Was 2014 really such a bad year in video games?

Let's discuss that question right here and now. Was it really THAT bad? There were a few AAA fuck-ups, yes. But what about all the awesome stuff that came in 2014? If you look at it from the other side you just might realize it actuall...

 
 
 

B-Listers and Hidden Gems Pt. 1

Today I'd like to discuss some more obscure, or maybe just underrated games that I personally loved for one reason or another. The list will cover multiple systems, multiple generations, genres and even levels of awesomeness.Illbleed: ...

 
 
 

Vita, My Sweet Vita

How I love this little handheld. It packs a real whollop in power, having some truly spectacular looking/performing games. Has the nice little second analog nub already built in, and since I have an original model (Got it on day one, b...

 
 
 

In Defense of TITS.

If you know me it's no secret I am not fond of Polygon (Or Kotaku for that matter, but that's another blog entry), their recent review treatment of Bayonetta 2 is a grand example as to why. They allowed their personal distaste for over...

 
 
 

The feeling of power.

It's a good feeling. My life is turning around a bit, if you care or have paid any attention to my previous blogs. I'm sitting here a bit sick from a headcold (I guess) eating toast, hanging out with my son and listening to Mastodon on...

 
 
 

After the darkest night, daylight will still shine.

"No winter lasts forever. The seasons pass and the sunlight will shine on my life again."It's been a pretty rough month, but things are starting to look up and the household has a very needed ray of light shining back down on it. Every...

 
 
 

It Has Nothing To Do With Games.

Wasn't going to write about this, but it IS a blog afterall.Things are tough in my household right now. Money is tight as hell, grocery shopping is a tight rope walk and my dogs may be dying.See, I have a basset hound named Buddy. He's...

 
 
 

Destiny: I love it.

The media opinions of Destiny absolutely baffle me. We all played the beta, well anyone already interested in it anyway. Didn't really see anyone complaining then, in fact I saw a whole lot of positive coverage.But now the game is out ...

 
 
 

My Favorite Game: Chrono Trigger

I was in 7th grade, heavily into JRPGs and had just began to try and follow my father's footsteps as an amateur author. A friend and I had rode our bikes to the local pawn shop to trade some games, as we did regularly. They'd trade any...

 
 
 

Time Flies When You're...Living.

Man...what a year. It's flown by at light speed for me. And it doesn't just seem to be me either, most people I've talked to agree. It makes some logical sense for me, it's been an eventful year and all with raising a newborn son. But ser...

 
 
 

My Big Backlog.

Jesus H. Christ...there needs to be 24 more hours in every day. It's a good feeling to have so much stuff to play that there is simply no way possible to play it all. But it's also a bad feeling when it just keeps stacking up and you wonder...
