eSports and Athleticism – A Quick Rant

I may be about to start an argument.

It’s been ages, but I remember posting something about eSports and the fact that people are beginning to view pro gamers as athletes. Of course this sparked a chaotic debate, and frankly, I don’t even remember what my opinion was on the matter.

Town of Salem – Why aren’t you playing?!

It is officially Monday, signaling my special time to write something semi-interesting for you guys. So while Kolby tries to steal my ravioli while frustratingly demonstrating his pack animal skills (chewing on a shoe in my lap), I’m going to try to convince all of you wonderful people to play Town of Salem.

The Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster has been released… and I don’t have it yet. Which is depressing considering that X is one of my favorite titles in the series (following VIII). Smooth McGroove, master of all things video games and Acapella music, released a new video showcasing Final Fantasy X’s Battle Theme. And of course it’s amazing.

The first English dub clip of Attack on Titan has been released

The popularity of the Attack on Titan anime has exploded since the Japanese release, igniting a future full of creepy Titans which include a Japanese live-action film (and a car commercial), and the English dub release of the anime. I’ve never been a huge anime fan before Attack on Titan, and I really grew to enjoy watching it with subtitles, so when the announcement of the English dub version appeared, I was pretty skeptical.
