Celebrating Easter The Gamer Way – With Easter Eggs!

In video games, Easter eggs are identified as intentional inside jokes or hidden messages within the game. Sometimes they refer to other video games or media sources, like movies or comic books, that may or may not relate to the game at hand, other times they are completely random. Easter eggs are a toss-up as far as comedic value goes. Often times they are intended to make the player smirk or laugh by make a reference to an internet meme or a fan made inside joke, but sometimes they give you more information about the game or even make references to past games in a series or foreshadow possible future games. In this post I’d like to celebrate Easter the only way I know how, by talking about cool video game Easter eggs! Continue reading Celebrating Easter The Gamer Way – With Easter Eggs!

Tips For Powering Through That Gamer Slump

It seems as if for the past few months most gamers, myself included, have been in somewhat of a gaming slump.

The Gift of Television – What I’ve Been Watching Lately

After childhood I sort of stopped watching television shows. I watched Friends, maybe whatever was on Cartoon Network when I got home from school, and not much else. This carried on throughout my teenage years and into my young adult life. Now, at the age of 24, I find myself in quite the dilemma – I’m actually watching too many shows at once. It’s hard to go from watching nothing to being involved in about five to six television shows all at once, almost all of them having new episodes weekly. This week I’d like to let you all in to my newly found life in the world of television shows, so what have I been watching lately?
