Dropped Games (December 2019)

Time is precious. When it comes to playing video games, there are too many to waste time on any I am not enjoying. Each month, my backlog has a few casualties - games I consider “dropped” - where I’ve put in enough time or made the realization that I am not having fun. In December, … Continue reading Dropped Games (December 2019)

Setting PSVR up optimally is not for the weak willed and is a frustrating experience most of the time. The screen resolution prevents games … Continue reading The P in PSVR Stands for Passion
