Backlog Commando Cole Played The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

The saying “familiarity breeds contempt” often holds true when sequels don’t expand much on the predecessor, but that couldn’t be further from the truth with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. After enough time, familiarity can turns into nostalgia and little callbacks to the original game lead to knowing smiles. A Link Between Worlds… Continue reading

Played Game of Thrones Episode One – This Will End Well

I’m a late fan of the Telltale game series. It wasn’t until after the first season of The Walking Dead was complete that I discovered its awesomeness.

As evidenced here when we closed out a… Continue reading

Apparently, that’s too long to wait to play Civilization because my first session did not go well. I completely forgot… Continue reading
