Tyler's Contrabulous Fabtraption

My Favorite and Least Favorite Games of 2014

Posted by tylerh1701, 22 December 2014 - * * * - - · 972 views

Keep in mind that these games are ones I played in 2014, they weren't necessarily released in 2014. Full list of nominees can be found below.

Top 10 Games Play in 2014:

10. Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse - I never played the original, but this remastered version had some great platforming and even better settings.

9. Velocity 2X - The pla...

What are you playing this weekend? - Independence Day Edition

I'm sure DaddyBo is busy with holiday stuff, so I'll fill in for him.

What you guys playing this weekend? I just wrapped up Tomb Raider :ps3: and had a really good time with it, but I don't know what to play next. Probably something else on my PS3 hard drive so I can clear up some more space. I tried Doki Doki :ps4: but it seems really stupid.

No pla...

My Gaming in Review - Top 11 Games of 2013 (#11-6)

Posted by tylerh1701, 06 March 2014 - - - - - - · 1237 views

The moment I'm sure you've all been waiting for. The exciting reveal of my absolute favorite games of 2013. Unlike my most Surprising , Disappointing , and Least Favorite games of the year, there was no way I could limit this list to just 3 entries. In fact, I couldn't even limit it to 10, because after reviewing my list I really felt like there were 1...

What are you playing this weekend? - House of Cards Edition

Posted by tylerh1701, 14 February 2014 - * * * * * · 1045 views

Eh nobody's posted anything yet. I'll go ahead.

House of Cards Season 2 is already out on Netflix, I get off work in about an hour. I'm having a small party with a couple friends and a lot of booze. We'll watch a few episodes tonight, I'll probably go home and pass out, then have to re-watch the episodes tomorrow. I'll slowly work through the episode...

What Are You Playing This Weekend - Good vs. Evil Edition

Sorry DaddyBoJangles, stealing the thunder.

Big thing again this weekend for me is football. I'm quite interested in both games this weekend. One of my closest friends is a huge Seahawks fan, so obviously I despise them. They've also somehow become the trendy team to cheer for, I have two other friends who have definitely hopped on the bandwagon. So...

Opinions Wanted - My One Gripe with Selling on Amazon

Posted by tylerh1701, 18 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1504 views

I've been selling on Amazon for the last couple years now, and it's been great. An amazing outlet to resell my games for straight cash (rather than store credit) and generally on par with local trade-in values (and sometimes well above). I don't sell a lot though, I usually only ever have 2-3 items in my inventory. I've maybe done 200 transactions over...

Black Friday Pickups

Posted by tylerh1701, 12 December 2013 - * * * * * · 1150 views

I had a successful Black Friday/Cyber Monday week. The last of my stuff is finally arriving so figured I'd post my pickups. Got everything I was wanting, specifically a new cheap doorbuster laptop from Best Buy because my old laptop is about 6 years old and it's time for a new one. Hope everyone else was as successful as I was!


My Gaming in Review - Biggest Surprises of 2013

Posted by tylerh1701, 09 December 2013 - - - - - - · 1478 views

So, like someone else who posted here, I'm a CAG and therefore I don't get to a whole lot of games when they release, or even soon after. I've only played a handful of games released in 2013, so it's not really fair for me to do any type of "Games of the Year" post or anything of that nature.

Rather, I'll just be mentioning a few games that I played ove...

What Shows Should I Watch on HBO GO?

Posted by tylerh1701, 06 November 2013 - - - - - - · 14200 views

So a couple months ago Comcast hooked me up with a Cable and Internet package for $50/month for 6 months. I later found out that my "cable" package was basically just all the channels I get with my antenna, so that was a complete bust. But still, internet alone for $50/month is not a bad deal. I was also informed I get HBO free for 6 months, and it als...

Tylerh1701's Theory of Acceptability in the Field of "Flipping"

Posted by tylerh1701, 16 October 2013 - - - - - - · 1423 views

This blog post is basically just an expansion of a comment I left on Rozz' blog post about flipping . I've been on CAG for a while now and I've found my views on flipping have evolved a little bit. It's always interesting to see the spectrum of beliefs about flipping on this site. Some people see nothing at all wrong with it, others absolutely can't stand...
