Looking over my recent blog posts, I feel like I've been a little bit too negative in posting about games that I don't really care for. So to buck that trend, here are some of my favorite games that I played in 2012.

Note that not all of them released in 2012. As a CAG, I never buy games on release, so a lot of the game...


Unpopular Opinion Alert - The Walking Dead: The Game

I'll try to keep this as un-troll-ish as possible. This is how I really feel, I'm not just trying to be a fire starter.

But how is this game so inexplicably popular? I spent about 20 minutes with it and it does nothing for me. The gameplay seemed mind-num...


Why did people like Journey? (The game, not the band)

Just curious, what's the appeal with this game? It's received nothing but praise, IGN gave it their PS3 Game of the Year Award. So, why does everyone like it? Feel free to be as spoilerish as necessary in your comments.


I don't think I like Resident Evil 6

*may contain some minor spoilers, so read with caution*

I'm definitely not a lifelong Resident Evil fan. The first one I ever played was RE4, and I actually just played that for the first time about a year ago. It's definitely an amazing game, my onl...

I'm not trying to start up a pro/anti-flipping debate, though if one gets started I don't really care because at least it will be going on here instead of in one of the threads.

I'm usually against flipping when the game is in high demand, because I don't think making $6 in Best Buy credit is wor...

Europe PS+ vs. USA PS+

This topic has been a source of debate since the introduction of the Instant Game Collection for PS+ in June. Since European regions and US regions are getting different games for free from the program, it's been quite a source of contention. Here on CA...


Informing someone of a rejection

Posted by tylerh1701, 12 October 2012 - - - - - - · 120 views

I'm in the final stage of hiring a new employee to work in our office, and there were 2 candidates that have different but useful skills for the position. I've done 2 rounds of interviewing with each of them, and I've decided who I'm going to hire, but the hardest part is letting the other person know that I'm not hiring them for the job. I've done some...


Cutting WAY back on soda

I can easily drink 3 to 4 sodas a day (36-48oz). I love the stuff. But I've started with some reflux problems over the last month or so. I was hoping they would go away on their own but they haven't. So it's time to start changing my diet, and the first step it so cut way down on my s...


So I Pulled Out My Wii Today...

Now that I got the Wii = Penis joke out of the way in the title, I'll get to the heart of the post. I plugged in my Wii today for the first time in probably about 8 months. I got it out to play some New Super Mario Bros. Wii, not because I had a craving to play the game, but because I saw it trades in for $28.00 at Best Bu...
