The 12 Completions in 12 Months Video Game Challenge

12 Games in 12 Months

It’s a brand new year and rather than set some tired old “exercise more, eat better” resolution I’m setting a video game challenge.  Much like a lot of gamers I have a tendency to purchase games and then purchase other games before getting to the end of the previous ones.  I have an enormous Steam library … Read more

Xbox Live Games with Gold April 2016 offers Sunset Overdrive Free

I’ll admit that I wasn’t that thrilled with the Xbox Live March Games with Gold lineup.  The highlight of March was pretty much Borderlands.  I was at least hoping that Borderlands 2 would have then also made it to Backwards Compatibility but that has not surfaced yet.  April is another story with a pretty good … Read more

Joining a Niche Market – Dad’s Broadcasting on Twitch

I’m pretty late to the game with this and although I’ve sort of tried it before this past week I dove headfirst into Twitch broadcasting.  Twitch is fun especially for those of us who like to watch, either from the fact that we can’t really play anymore or it brings back memories of watching our friends play as we all took turns playing a NES on that old tube TV.  On Twitch at this point though I’m a small fish in a very big pond with some very popular broadcasters but I’m mainly doing this for fun, less profit.  It’s all about having fun though and it’s also got me playing games a little more, which is something I’ve always enjoyed but recently haven’t had as much time.  Plus how many Dad’s can be broadcasting on Twtich!
