Lightning Returns Thoughts

Lightning Returns is a really strange game.  If you remember my “Final Fantasy as Cakes” blog, this game is definitely not a cake.  It’s a Final Fantasy game where you don’t have levels, you don’...

 
 
 

The Persona 5 Blog

Spoilers will be rampant and unmarked.  You have been warned.  This is also a train of thought blog, because you all know how the game is by now, so these are my disorganized thoughts. I really like how swingy the combat feel...

My Tetris Effect Journey

I have quite literally been playing video games for longer than I can remember.  Before I was born, the family had an NES and an assortment of games, ranging from classics like Mario, the oddballs that we love like Amagon, and of ...

 
 
 

Lets talk about Cyberpunk 2077

Let’s talk about Cyberpunk.  Some background from me on it is that I totally didn’t follow it as closely as many others, and I kind of wasn’t on board with CDPR from the start.  I didn’t really care fo...

tater's Dead by Daylight Postmortem

I am not the biggest into multiplayer games, something about them just really brings out the salt in me.  Once in a while I will fall into one for some reason or another, and the more depth that the game has, the longer I wind up ...

 
 
 
 

tater's Keto Recipes

About a year ago, maybe, I found out I had the beetus.  I have been playing around with food stuffs low in carbs and figured I would share some of my favorites that I have found so far.     White Trash Soup A Pound...

 
 
 

tater's Top 10 Food Stuffs

GyrosGyros have the highest floor of any food that I have ever eaten.  For those unfamiliar with the floor and ceiling concept, what I am getting at is this - the worst gyro that I have ever had was from my work’s cafeteria....

 
 
 

I'm In Hate With The World (NVGR, Rant blog)

I’m bitter as hell, this is a rambling blog.  It’s not directed at anyone, but it isn’t pointed away either, I guess.  Curse words to follow. Some Will Fall In Love With Life and Drink It Like A Fountain I&r...

 
 
 

tater's Card Collection

One thing that my family is totally in to is antiquing.  My sister and her husband are both archaeologists, my mom just really lives kitchy stuff (lots of candlewick), and my brother always enjoys rummaging through a store.  ...

 
 
 

taterchimp's 2020 Games Played!

Overload - Traditional style 6DOF game, but with VR support!  I played this with a HOTAS because ‘immersion’ and it took me a long time to get used to the controls but was fun once I did.  The difficulty escalated...

Extra Life Game Day 2020 - Final Fantasy 7!

Back in May I did a no reason fundraiser playing Final Fantasy 13 for 13 hours.  Now that the official Extra Life day is upon us, I think it would be only appropriate to play Final Fantasy 7 for a total of 12 hours!  Unlike M...

 
 
 
 

"Early" thoughts on Warframe

Warframe is one of the most consistently monetized free to play games I have seen.  Want a new gun?  Five bucks.  Oh wait, you don’t have enough slots for a new gun.  We’ll sell you those slots for five ...

 
 
 

Cave In - an Experimental Card Game

Cave In I had an idea to make a card game the other day that plays similarly to Screw Your Neighbor combined with Cash And Guns.  Figured I would type it out to see if it makes sense, and unleash it on you all if you wanted to try...

 
 
 

Gushing about TROUBLESHOOTER

There is so much that I wanted to say about this game that in a review, but I wanted to try to write a 'professional' review because I had seen so few.  With that being said, a lot of the soul of things that made me love the game ...

 
 
 

Review: TROUBLESHOOTER: Abandoned Children

Fire Emblem with Seoul Sometimes there is just nothing going on at work or in my life, so I go and check out the upcoming section on Steam to see if there is anything I can get excited about.  I saw a bright yellow rectangle with...

 
 
 

FFXV vs FFXIII

I just beat Final Fantasy XV, and before that Final Fantasy XIII, so I thought it would be cool to do a side by side comparison of each part of the game with the other one!  I’ll try to keep things as subjective as possible ...

 
 
 
 
 

Game Pitch: 'Katamari Racing'

I saw a gif of someone glitching out in Forza the other day - the road suddenly disappeared underneath the car, and the car was suspended in air doing 600 miles per hour.  It got me thinking about how fun it would be to have a gam...

The series never had a part 3, because I was having waaaaay too much fun playing it. Suffice to say that it does alright these days.

Thanks for stopping by my blawg!
