Zelda 3DS, or (holds above head) "NAH NAH NAH NAAAAAAAAAH!!!!"

I was an early adopter of the 3DS, but let's face it - it has a shitty battery life. So, when I heard the 3DS XL had a much better battery, I debated on upgrading for many months. It was a good thing I held out for as long as I did, because now I have THIS!!

Analog Gaming - Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity is a terrible game that you should never buy. Because chances are, you already have friends who have bought it already. So go find them, find a few other people, and get ready to groan...a lot.

Resogun, You Look Very Familiar...

Ever since I picked up my PS4, I never thought I'd be playing it as much as I'm playing it now. Even though I only acquired one game upon launch (Knack), I was happy to find more games to download and play through PSN and PlayStation Plus, one of which was Resogun, by Housemarque. The moment I saved my first human, it clicked.

Another PS4 Post

Might as well state the obvious, but I've procured my PS4 system on release, and have been playing it since. Rather than do any unboxing video or pictures of me holding my system, I'd rather say what I did upon opening it. Because seriously, who wants to read another boring post of someone detailing everything you already know from other articles?

Analog Gaming - Space Hulk: Death Angel

I never thought I'd ever get the satisfaction of playing a tense board game with figurines without the board...or the figurines. The tactical feel of moving plastic across the cardboard terrain is something I revel in. So, I was very hesitant to accept that Space Hulk: Death Angel received lots of praise as a great game, when it's just a deck of cards with a die. When you're playing a game, however, it's much more.

Analysis Paralysis in Games

Maybe you've waited an hour for a person to make their move in a board game, or perhaps you yourself stopped playing a video game because you couldn't decide what to do with the rare material you found. Whatever the case may be, you can blame AP, or analysis paralysis...and it can put a real damper in your gaming life.

Gaming Father - The Excitement of Video Game Sales

There was a time, long ago, when the sale of video games made my eyes lit up. My whole body would get into a giddy frenzy, and my mind just scrolled through the many game options I would have when I made my purchase. It was so easy back then, when I was single, childless, and without a care in the world. All that mattered to me is that my game collection would grow more, and I'll have more options of games to play.

Analog Gaming Remembers - Quicksand

Like most people, I started my board gaming roots with the basics: Clue, Sorry, and Monopoly. Then came others, like Operation and Guess Who. Then I started to go off the beaten path, trying out games like Mouse Trap, and even Labyrinth. Then there's Quicksand.

A Lego Atari. A LEGO ATARI!!

I'm such a huge fan of lego, and have always been fascinated with the creations talented artists create on their own. The first time I checked out Chris McVeigh's site, it was when he created the question block ornament out of lego (which you can still purchase the kit for here). It's been a while since I checked out his site, but I returned there recently to find what you see above.

Spelunky, A Quick Game of- Oh, I Died.

As a parent now with very little time on my hands, I'm used to managing my game time with lengthy games in short intervals. But with Spelunky, it's like the game gets tired of you...but in a good way.

November is a Big Month

Why? Well, the next next-gen systems are releasing this month, but more importantly, this.

Wait, you already have a 3DS, don't you?

Yes I do. But this is a GOLD Zelda-themed 3DS XL system. I've been meaning to get a larger version of this system, and this is it! Being one of the early adopters of the system, I've sat idly by too long as new system after new system comes out. It's time GameritisGuy gets his slice of the pie!

What about your old system?

Well, after the data transfer, I can trade it in, OR perhaps have the wifey play it...though she prefers a larger screen...hmm...
