The purpose of me writing on this blog is mainly to express my thoughts on video games, Christianity, and how they intersect. Recently, I have felt a little boxed-in and wanting to write about other topics. Some of the topics I want to put to digital paper do not relate to gaming, or maybe they … More Gamer’s Journal, My New Column
The year has been flying by! Just a month ago everyone was talking about how amazing 2018 would be, and here we are in February already. If we do not use our time wisely, it will walk right past us and we won’t even notice it. For me though, I have been trying my best … More When Life Is Like A Dungeon Crawl
Video games are not cheap! There are not many activities that cost more to indulge over time than this one. I know what I’m talking about, being a gamer for over 20 years already! When a game is released, especially recently, it often costs $60 and then there’s the collector’s edition which could be $100 or … More The 3 Ways I Save Money On Video Games

As a longtime fan of the series, I was pumped to finally see it return to its roots by going back to a 2D platform. It looks, sounds and plays just like the old Sonic … More Sonic Mania And Being A Better Disciple
This year, I decided to participate properly in Extra Life, which is a website that collects donations every year to help children’s hospitals. They specifically target gamers by asking them to stream video games and plug their donation page link. Some gamers even do 24 hour live streams, which is pretty difficult to accomplish. I … More Extra Life 2017 – Video Games Helping Children
When I was young, I played a lot of video games. Much more than I do now, that I am older. What I wish I still had though, were all those old games! I ended up selling most of them (I forgot what else I did with them) because I needed some money, but I wasn’t … More Should A Christian Play ROMS or Hacked Games?
This is part three of a three-part guest post series on gamer motivations. Check out part 1 on escapism, and part 2 on challenge.
