    'NCAA Football 14': OU, Stillwater, and Georgia Tech to the SEC Dynasty Mode Build Season 1, Part 13—Week 10: Ole Miss @ #1 Oklahoma

    'NCAA Football 14': OU, Stillwater, and Georgia Tech to the SEC Dynasty Mode Build Season 1, Part 13—Week 10: Ole Miss @ #1 Oklahoma

    So I gave us all a bit of a break from the series since I've been pulling a lot of overtime at my real job while we were all also focused on the real team and getting ready for that Peach Bowl Disaster and the Holidays. Really frustrating, it's one thing to get outclassed on the field, but we didn't even put our best foot forward with all those suspensions. Both the off-field pregame variety, and the Radley-Hiles Targeting mishap. Hopefully our young team learns from this. On some level it's satisfying that Clemson lost the Title and our Consecutive Wins Record is safe for the time being, and Dabo Swinney is always annoying. A quick reminder from Last Week Tonight that Dabo Swinney is an anagram for 'Soybean Wind'. But I get and understand people that would've wanted it to go the other way.

    Why gamers make great poker players

    Why gamers make great poker players

    As a geek turned into a poker enthusiast, I was totally hooked with strategy games since I first learned to turn on the computer (around 4 years old). I believe my history of playing games later led me to try out poker, and also joining the team of beastsofpoker.com.

    'NCAA Football 14': OU, Stillwater, and Georgia Tech to the SEC Dynasty Mode Build Season 1, Part 11—Week 8: #26 Kansas State @ #3 Oklahoma

    'NCAA Football 14': OU, Stillwater, and Georgia Tech to the SEC Dynasty Mode Build Season 1, Part 11—Week 8: #26 Kansas State @ #3 Oklahoma

    I kid of course, but just like the game in real life Kansas State is proven rank quality without getting the respect from either major poll. Like I mentioned in my re-issue of the Intial Setup and Schedule, I screwed up putting this one in Norman when we played in Manhattan in real life. But we march on anyhow out of right the wrong real life gave us.

    'NCAA Football 14': OU, Stillwater, and Georgia Tech to the SEC Dynasty Mode Build Season 1, Part 10—Week 7: #11 Texas @ #3 Oklahoma

    'NCAA Football 14': OU, Stillwater, and Georgia Tech to the SEC Dynasty Mode Build Season 1, Part 10—Week 7: #11 Texas @ #3 Oklahoma

    Going into the matchup our Conference Prestige Ranking is 13.7, 2nd only to the surprising ACC at 10.5. Our Combined Opponent Record is 35-28. Texas's Combined Opponent Record is 36-23. Although their theoretical ranking as an Independent probably isn't as bad as you may think with a bye then @ #6 TCU, and @ #4 West Virginia their next 3 weeks. Aside from us though that's the only current rankings in their schedule, but we are hoping Kansas State gets ranked for both of us at some point if not in time for our Week 8 matchup. I forget if Texas's actual schedule was lost to my Setup Text Loss or not, so we'll just revisit it here real quick.

    Game Review—Fallout: Shelter

    Game Review—Fallout: Shelter

    In 2077, nuclear bombs rained down on America, destroying cities and making the earth uninhabitable. The only safe place was underground, inside the vaults constructed by Vault-Tec. But safety proved to be relative, with the vaults posing their own unique dangers, including the sinister experiments carried out by the Vault-Tec corporation. No-one knew they were signing up for that, but it’s a better fate than dying of radiation sickness outside, or slowly turning into a feral ghoul.

    Game Review—‘Kingdom: Two Crowns’

    Game Review—‘Kingdom: Two Crowns’

    It’s time. Kingdom: Two Crowns is here (well, it’s been here for a while and I’m a little late to the party) and I’ve been playing it for many, many days (weeks, and months). It’s still highly recommended, even after the novelty has worn off (but did it ever, really?), so read on for my thoughts.

    Final Fantasy Tactics

    Final Fantasy Tactics

    It was 1995. Sony brought to us a whole new age of gaming via the PlayStation. Fortunately, it didn’t abandon itself to third-person, action adventures the way contemporary gaming has abandoned itself to first-person, action adventures; as if all video games today have to be Skyrim or Fallout.

    The Allure of Strategy Games

    The Allure of Strategy Games

    Real-time strategy (RTS) games and turn-based strategy (TBS?) games have one major detail in common, they're all about money. One might assume when such a broad and vague statement is made, that the reference is to the real-world purchases that keep game companies afloat. In fact, this is instead a statement of a broader pool of currencies: battlefield currencies and national resources. Allow me a moment to reminisce and divulge the secrets of these worlds that are less about tactical domineering and more about economic engineering.

    'Hearts of Iron IV': A Gamer's Review

    'Hearts of Iron IV': A Gamer's Review

    So you've most likely won the Second World War on other games like Call of Duty and Medal of Honor as a Run N' Gun soldier without a care in the world. However, those games don't paint the picture of how it was actually won: with strategy, logistics, and painful-time consuming planning.
