Playlist: June 29th

Another week, another Playlist. It’s been fairly quiet in terms of game news this week, which to me felt like a blessing. E3 was a crazy, wild ride, and EVO is coming up really fast, so it was nice to just have some time to relax. Here’s what we’ve been playing. PLAYED Layton Brothers: Mystery …

Goddamn Mondays Tuesdays: 6/19

Welcome back to Goddamn Mondays with Dark Souls! Let’s get back to where we were- being terrorized by a dragon. Again. I survive the dragon. He gives me a little fire to remember him by, but then he flies to the end of that very long bridge, and takes up a roost. I cross the …

Playlist: June 14th

And E3 is ovaaaah! It’s been pretty crazy, and definitely very exciting stuff. At the end of the day, though, the console war is just gettin’ started, and as much as Ben and I aren’t too hot on the Xbox One, there’s plenty of time until launch. It’s gonna be a wild ride, guys. PLAYED …
