The Son of Man

I’m incredibly self-conscious about the way I pronounce a few words and names.  This is mostly because they’re words I’ve read thousands of times and have said in my head just as many, but I’m unsure of how theyare actually pronounced as I’ve rarely, if ever, heard other people use them.

I had a PS2 that fulfilled my needs throughout my Bachelor of Commerce and it did the trick. A lot of my first year could easily be divided into the 3 games played after dinner. The Star   Read More ...

My Life's Story in Video Games

The Later Earlier Years It was around this time our family upgraded from our old DOS PC to a system capable of running a Windows OS. Not just any Windows OS…Windows 95. I was ballin’ now. Playing Demo CDs pilfered from my uncle’s library, being introduced to the wonders of the Maxis Sim games, making shortcuts of everything so I could change the icons, I was in heaven. I could   Read More ...
