Games of 2017

Games of 2017 Zelda Twilight Princess HD

2017 was an odd year in gaming for me. My list of games contains new games, old games, replays of games, remastered games, and Zelda games. I began 2017 hoping to put a dent in my backlog. With everything that ended up happening, 2017 became the year of my comfort gaming. I have a whopping twenty games on the list this year, which surprises me. This list is ordered in the order I started to play the game in 2017. Each game gets its own special category. I also include some stats about my play sessions. All stats are captured … Continue reading

I Care

Note 01/29/2018: I wrote this July 22, 2017. Two days after the death of Chester. I wrote it, saved it, and closed it. I knew I wanted to publish it, but I was not ready at the time. I looked at it for the first time to edit it after 2017 – Raw Hindsight was published. I edited it before posting, but with the intent to keep the raw emotion intact. I actually shed tears while editing this article; I also smiled. I did not want to rewrite it from my January 2018 perspective. That would ruin the therapy. -Royfuss … Continue reading

2017 – Raw Hindsight

The year 2017 might be the shittiest year of my life. I try to stay positive. I really felt bad for people who said 2016 was the worst year of their life. It seemed like everyone on social media was complaining about it. 2016 was a great year for me. I wish the good fortune would have continued. Life just kept handing me lemons, and I could not keep up. Every month, a new “fuck you!” surfaced. Every month, my positivity dwindled. After work one day in January 2017 my dad tells me my mom is in the emergency room. … Continue reading

2018 – The Starting Point

A healthy part of experiencing tragedy is to create and achieve goals for yourself. Making sure your life moves forward despite what happened. Last year, I told myself I need to get back into reading. I have finished three books since November, and just started a fourth. I plan on continuing to find the time to read, even though I probably will not reach the frequency I did in middle school and high school. Also last year, I made a goal to work on the backlog of shows I want to watch. Now, the only Marvel Netflix show I have … Continue reading

Games of 2016

Games of 2016 Doom

Another year, another list. I played quite a few games in 2016, and I had a ton of fun. Looking at the list of games I played this year, twelve of them are worth mentioning for Games of 2016. This time I ordered the list in the order of when I played them. As with years past, each game gets its own category. Stupidest Use Of Zombies (Zombies Scare Me) Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune – Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (PS4) Number of hours played: 13.25 Number of achievements earned: 34/54 Number of screenshots taken: 76 I played through all three … Continue reading

Games of 2015

Games2015SuperMarioMaker

The year 2015 has ended, which inspires a time of reflection. 2015 was another great year for video games. The PS4 and XBox One are in full swing, and developers brought some of their best work to the consoles in 2015. Of course, PC gaming continued on where the old generation left off, and it actually seems developers are paying more attention to PC. Looking back, I’m able to pick out eleven games (once again) that I played over the course of last year. There were a few stragglers I ended up playing, but didn’t make the list for one … Continue reading

Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate – Why We Should Stay Friends

Assassin's Creed Syndicate - London Sunset

A month ago, Gamespot’s The Point posted a video titled “Breaking Up With Assassin’s Creed.” I usually agree with Danny, but I have to disagree with him after playing Syndicate, for the most part; I think Assassin’s Creed and I can be friends after breaking up with it. Assassin’s Creed 2 and Brotherhood are my favorite games in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, for many of the reasons Danny points out in his video. I love how the missions create a story arc around Ezio in Assassin’s Creed 2, and I love the combat, free running, and world of Brotherhood. Revelations … Continue reading

Composure

Wolfenstein: The New Order

Three and a half months. This is the amount of time since my last update. It’s also the amount of time since I’ve done anything related to writing, which isn’t good for my sanity. You can look at my past, and notice several lapses in my posting, but I usually do writing in between posts. The recent lapses in posting (late 2014) involves a personal writing project. This writing project is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I finished the writing portion around the time I posted “Games of 2014.” That post was also a massive … Continue reading

Games of 2014

Games of 2014 - Mario Kart 8 DLC

2013 is a difficult year to top when it comes to video games. There were a ton of fun games released. I had a lot of fun with them. There was a lot of hype going into 2014. I ended up purchasing both the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One. I also updated my PC to run the latest games. I’m ready to play games, but 2014 actually saw a drop in the number of games I played; this is attributed to me spending more time on the games I did get around to playing. As with last year, this … Continue reading

Update Dump

I’ve been doing other writing projects these past few months, so I haven’t posted anything here. My goal is to do some writing at least once a week, which I would like to be on this blog, but time is finite. You’ll have a chance to check out my labors in the next few weeks. I don’t want to announce anything prematurely (Me? No! I never do that). I figured I should do an update dump for you. Let’s start at current events, and move backwards. I plan was to do another album review this evening, but that plan changed … Continue reading
