The Weekend Gamer (May 9th-11th)

May 10, 2008

Well the weekend is once again upon us. I’ve got a whole lot of gaming available, but I’m pretty much paralyzed by choice. I’ll probably see who wants to play what, and let that be my guide. I’ve been playing some more Mario Kart, but I lent the Wii out to Dave and Danielle for […]

The Weekend Gamer (May 2nd-4th)

May 2, 2008

I’ve been such a bad blogger this week and last, I know.  I sincerely apologize.  What’s been keeping me busy you ask?  Mainly this.   The relaunch of Meta Cafe has been something I’m simultaneously excited for and scared out of my mind about.  It was a bunch of fun and a real success back in December, […]

At least that thought is not […]

The Weekend Gamer (Feb. 15th-17th)

February 15, 2008

  Good morning gang.  It’s Friday, and you know what that means–time to fire up that console for some weekend gaming.  What’s on the docket? For me, it’s mostly likely going to be dominated by Japanese titles.  I started Lost Odyssey last night, and can’t put it down.  But if one or two of my […]
