Gamer’s Journey: Tales of a Minecraft One Upper

Jason and I have been talking about starting a Horrible Night Minecraft server for a while now and this weekend “Horrible Village” came to fruition. Initially, I saw it as an excuse to get back into the game without dealing with the mind numbing loneliness that comes with solo play. The fact that our tight… Continue reading

Gamer’s Journey: The Sports Game Fanatic

I have been hiding something inside me since I started writing for Horrible Night. I have been hiding a secret that may not be very well-known. I may have even been hiding it from myself. I have been hiding that I love sports games. I play them for hours on end with no remorse. Early… Continue reading

Gamer’s Journey: Fighting Character Progression Obsession

Individuals that don’t play games often accuse those of us who do of wasting time. While I generally disagree with this statement, I have noticed a trend in games during the course of my own play time that may validate such a perception and I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one. It’s time we… Continue reading

Gamer’s Journey: Robotic Operating Buddy

Ever since I was a child, I wanted to see the Robotic Operating Buddy for the NES, or R.O.B, in action. I’d seen about half of the pieces floating around my house growing up, but it always seemed like there wasn’t quite enough there to make it work. This thing looked like an awesome toy,… Continue reading
