Xbox One Launch Event in NYC

Looks like they’re giving away foam billy-clubs for beating off all those haters from Sony. I hate it when parents fight like this -I’m still clinging to my 360 E slim console…

 

Night In The Woods: Living The Dream Of A College Dropout

I should know -I dropped out of college twice before I graduated in 2012.

The thing about dropping out is that sometimes it forces you to tune in, as that’s just about the only way to distract yourself from the mountain of negative thoughts and feelings about the future, about yourself, and about all that money you’re going to have to find a way to pay back.

On to this awesome-looking new game prospect on Kickstarter that inspired me to vent about my previous failures: you get to play a cat named Mae who’s dropped out of college and returned to her hometown, a failed mining community, and explore the dark side of things. Sounds like where I’m from, and how I responded to my own feelings of hopelessness when I thought I’d never escape.

Whether you can relate to all these things or not, just check out the review at Kotaku and I think you’ll agree; this game is going to be awesome.

Star Wars: The New Obsession

I’ve fallen off the MMO wagon again.

This time around, I plan to be very responsible with my time (I can’t believe I’m writing this) and to blog about what I do online. I will review the games I play (video and tabletop… maybe even board) and I hope to entertain and inform. I hope you enjoy my ranting, raving and rambling about all of the many things that can happen in the life of a mama who games.

Gaming has been a part of my life since long before I had kids. I’ve never been what you’d call the “stereotypical” gamer -but I play for love of the game and the story. Parenting has it’s ups and downs, just like anything in life, but they are so severe at times -it can start to feel like you’re going to burn up in the atmosphere going one way or the other. People tend to classify escapism as a bad thing… but perhaps those people have simpler lives. What I do know is that life can be beautiful, terrible and overwhelming at times. Why not take a break once in a while, if it better equips you for the pitfalls?

I am MamaGamer. Star Wars: The Old Republic will be my new obsession. Come along!
