Halo 3 ODST
Posted Tuesday, September 15, at 12:04 PM

Has it really been a couple months since I last posted a Gaming Blog? Time flies when you're busy doing things other than writing blogs! In the 'break' from writing gaming blogs, I've managed to play about 5 new board games, lots of new card games, and a handful of new video games, so I'll try to start reviewing those in the coming weeks as well as other new games that are coming out...

I LIED....
Posted Wednesday, March 11, at 4:02 PM

Last week, I said I was going to talk about the excellent board game Settlers of Catan. My every attention was focused on doing this, but as I was writing it, I decided it was best to start up a game and well, I stopped writing and never came back.

Do you Believe?
Posted Monday, June 2, at 11:33 AM

So - there is this new video/picture making the rounds that supposedly shows evidence of the existence of aliens. Being an open minded person, I enjoy reading the different things that come out about space invaders.
