Mario by Faith, Not by Sight?


Was that the 10th step or the 11th? Perhaps you have had similar thoughts while negotiating stairs in the dark. Was that the last step or is there one more? Guess wrong or misremember and you’re reaching for a phantom top step (with that brief frightful feeling of stepping through nothingness) or confidently hurting your […]

Five Streamers You Should Be Following


There are more and more faith-based streamers on Twitch, Youtube, Facebook, and (insert new streaming platform) constantly coming up and growing communities. I myself would love to stream, though I’m not very “entertaining” so when I ever do it’s to chat with others and get through my backlog. For those that take it seriously though, […]

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox and the Quest For Kindness


My most recent foray into JRPGs has been Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, which is a franchise I have heard of but never played. I hesitated because this is part IX, so I assumed I would be starting off with a sequel but it was like Final Fantasy, where for the most part they are separate […]

Merry Christmas & Gifts For Gamers


It’s that time of year once again, where we celebrate Christ our Lord’s birth. Was Jesus Christ really born on December 25th?

Gamer’s Journal: Re-Constructing My Faith Pt. 2


This is part 2 of a post I wrote discussing my re-construction (not deconstruction) of my faith and understanding of God’s word. I am not saying that I am not a Christian anymore nor am I saying I have some weird theology or belief now. This is about me going back to the basics of […]
