I often wonder what life would be like if I were a squid disguised as a man. … Well, not really, but in Octodad: Dadliest Catch that dream (if it were my dream) would come true! In my latest endeavor into the world of let’s plays I take on the persona of the sea creature and get myself into all kinds of hilarious mischief. Episodes are uploaded as often as I can (usually every other day). You can catch up on all the episodes here in the playlist!

Here are my previous let’s plays:
So, I’ve been hearing some whisperings about the Steam Summer Sale could be starting today @ 1 pm ET! There’ve been claims that people have seen backgrounds in Big Picture mode stating the sale is set for June 19th to 30th. There’s also the Mysterious trading cards that have appeared in the badges inventory. It’s fairly early for the sale, but I think this is an excellent time for one! High schools will be finishing up with their exams, colleges and universities have been out already, and summer is just beginning. This gives all us gamers the whole summer to enjoy our ever building backlog ‘o games and hopefully shrink it down a bit.
Last sale I made a post with some advice about the sale. I’ll reiterate them again here with a few extra tips.
Arguably the biggest North American conference in the gaming industry is going down this week. That’s right, E3 is upon us once again. Now, over the years my expectations have lessened as I’ve felt the raw disappointment of games caused by overhype and delayed release dates. I’ve learned not to expect too much, but I still get excited for what could be coming soon™.
So, I’ve put together a small list of things I’m looking forward to and other things I’m lukewarm about…
It’s my birthday! Yay! Since I’m a mature responsible adult… drinks for everyone! And what better way to celebrate with these yummy drinks inspired by some of my favourite and recent obsessions.
Besaid Island (Final Fantasy X)
- 30 ml White rum

Yup, Nintendo has announced there will be a new Nintendo Direct this Tuesday, April 8th at 3pm PT (6pm ET). And it’s going to be all about the anticipated 3DS/WiiU game Super Smash Bros.!
Pokémon Battle Trozei came out exclusively for the 3DS eShop on March 20th. I’ve never played the previous Pokémon Trozei game nor have I played Nintendo’s Puzzle League series. But I do like a good match-3 game that doesn’t have the words “Candy” or “Saga” in it. And this game is unbelievably addictive. It fills the void when I’ve got some downtime and want to play a quick game or two.
On March 18th, 2014 Square-Enix released Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster for the PS3 and PS Vita. I’ve always been a fan of these games, so I had pre-ordered a Limited Edition copy online for the PS3. When I first played the game back in 2001 on the PS2 I had been blown away. I remember how the real time gameplay looked almost as good as CGI cinematics. And the inclusion of voice acting was a real step forward for Final Fantasy games. I pretty much obsessed over both games in my teen years (along with Final Fantasy VIII, so Square-Enix get on making a HD Remaster of that too! ). Needless to say, this was my most anticipated game this year.
