5 Things I Learned About Money from Animal Crossing
If you aren't already aware of the wildly popular Animal Crossing: New Horizons, then you must not have been quarantined with a Nintendo Switch. It dropped right as the reality of quarantine was starting to feel real and endless - right when many of us realized we would be spending our spring and even summer indoors, waiting out the pandemic. For me, virtual island life became an escape from the monotony of life in my apartment, and the drudgery of working on my master's degree on top of working from home - a trifecta if ever I've seen one.

3 Hacks That Will Save You Hundreds of Dollars on Gaming This Year
We have all been there. A new game is released, looks amazing, graphics are out of this world and the hype is real. Especially those games released on Next Gen consoles such as the Xbox Series X or the Playstation 5.

Not everyone can afford to spend that much on games – especially when you have a family and bills to pay such as myself. But being a Twitch Partner I need to keep my content fresh and up-to-date. So I need to find regular solutions to get those awesome games but at cheaper prices.
The Top 10 Pawns In Gaming
When it comes down to it, all video game characters are really pawns. Pawns that we control, and sacrifice, in our ongoing search for entertainment. But some people are unwitting tools even in their own universes. Here are the Top 10 characters that got into games over their heads.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Memories
With the announcement that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 are going to be remade, I got hit with a tidal wave of nostalgia. Upon hearing the news and browsing the world of Twitter, it appeared that I wasn’t the only one.
The Infinite Escape
The irony here is that one of the things I love doing most to erase stress and re-balance myself is writing...and here I am writing about it! However, it's not just any writing that I use to accomplish this; it's writing adventures for my table-top pen and paper gaming group that I've found is one of the most effective ways to eliminate stress. I have been playing Dungeons & Dragons and other similar tabletop games for as long as I can remember. Unfortunately, I am using the term playing loosely, as I have almost always been the one running the game. This means I can send the players on adventures using pre-made adventure modules... or, I can create my own custom adventures tailored to my exact liking. I often choose the latter.

#1 - "My name is Mike." Guys, I don't think you understand: I am totally blowing my cover, here. When I first started playing League of Legends, I chose the name "sleepymk."

One Month Later, And Here’s Why I’m Even More Obsessed with Humble Bundle’s Choice Model!
Through that process, I found a community in gaming that helped me give back to charities important to me. That company is Humble Bundle! In case you aren't yet familiar with Humble Bundle, they are a company that sells video games, ebooks, software, and other digital content with a significant focus on supporting various charities in the process. Their goal is to make gaming affordable to everyone and support a good cause while doing so! Both of those things are very important to me. Last month, I got to try out Humble Bundle's "Pay What You Want" feature.
ADOM (Ancient Domains of Mystery): How 15,000 Lines of Code Changed RPGs
Life hasn't been the most exciting lately. I love to travel, so naturally, the shutdown that brought 2020 to a halt has forced me to take up, well, less-preferred means of adventuring. One such method is to explore the open worlds of video games, some of which were created before I was born.
Yes, at 44, I Play Minecraft
Almost a decade ago, my daughters roped me into playing Minecraft with them on the Xbox 360. Because I'm one of those parents who is easily talked into playing games and what-not, it didn't take much convincing.
