Why I Relate to the Sims

Why I Relate to the Sims

Ever since I wrote about my Sims addiction being like Dwight K. Schrute of the Office and his Second Life habit, I haven’t been able to get the comparison out of my head.

Which is probably why, as I curled up on the couch in my favourite fluffy blanket watching the Office this week, I couldn’t help but start thinking about the Sims. Continue reading “Why I Relate to the Sims”

Trying Out an MMO: Final Fantasy XIV

Trying Out an MMO: Final Fantasy XIV

We’ve been trying to find something new to play together, since we’ve kind of had enough of the games we have been playing. League changed enough that we need time away from it, and Diablo…well, actually, we just stopped playing it for a bit after I couldn’t get the hang of the necromancer.

Last weekend, Shane came to me with a choice: World of Warcraft, or Final Fantasy XIV. He thought an MMORPG would be a great thing for us to try—much more relaxing than League, and similar to Diablo but with a social aspect.

I haven’t always been a Batman fan, but when I saw the Dark Knight for the first time, I was converted.

As much as people like to hate on those movies, I thought they did very well at drawing new fans into the DC Universe.

Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon: The End of an Era

Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon: The End of an Era

It’s not uncommon for Pokémon games to get remakes.

I mean, we were all rooting for a Hoenn remake for years, and when it finally did happen (only 11 years later), it was cause for celebration.

Today, though, Pokémon Moon is just one day shy of a year old, and it already has a remake. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon hit the shelves today—and although it’s really close to the original and unlikely to feature massive graphical updates or anything, it’s still cause for excitement.
