Rune Factory 4 Special

So, this game is my current obsession. I play games often, but not often enough get fully immersed in binge gaming mode. This is the first game to fully engross me, having me staying up late (and sneaking in a few minutes in the mornin...


Anything Not Saved Will Be Lost

About Damien Quicksilverone of us since 8:25 PM on 12.22.2018

Near the beginning of the millennium, I wrote an opinion column titled "My Twenty-Five Cents" in a short lived zine titled "Classic Gamer Magazine" iirc.

If there is somehow anyone out there who remembers that zine, that would be amazing. It was made with a group of folks I met in rec.games.video.classic on Usenet. If there is somehow anyone out there who remembers what Usenet is, you're old. If you don't know what Usenet was, it was basically the cretaceous period equivalent of Reddit.
