Trekking Through Games: Away Missions – Star Trek: The Clone Wars?

At this point I can easily say I’ve been through just about all the Star Trek series at least 3 times on Netflix over the past year and half. Now days when it’s on it’s mainly as background noise, and… Continue Reading →

8-bit Friday’s: Vintage Computers Edition

8-bit Friday’s: The Backlogs – 2016’s Unplayed

It’s been a while since I’ve done an 8-bit Friday, and even longer since I’ve done a backlog posting. To be honest the end of 2016 left me with a large load of unplayed games, despite not buying much in… Continue Reading →

8-bit Fridays: The Diaries – September 23, 2016

8-Bit Fridays: Backlogs V – The Legend Continues

8-bit Fridays: The Backlogs III – Labor Day Weekend 2016

8-bit Fridays: The Backlogs – August 19, 2016

In my 8-Bit Friday Diary entries, I often talk about my Friday purchases. Of course I don’t only buy on Friday’s especially if I run across a great deal, or if it’s an auction closing during the week. I’ve also… Continue Reading →
