I Stumbled Upon a Desktop PC

My work is in the midst of moving. As part of the process, they were letting go of a few PCs that were no longer needed. What seemed like a long-term goal of obtaining a computer capable of producing a modern-quality stream got a bit closer.

This machine isn’t exactly top-of-the-line, but it’s a step up from my laptop. Once my wife and I settle into our new home, I’ll try it out and see how things go. Having had my coworker look it over, he also gave me a list of things to upgrade on it if need be.

I know that video content continues to be a pain point of the In Third Person experience, but this is a step in the right direction. Stay tuned for more video content from In Third Person!

For Honor Impressions

Who wins in the ultimate battle between knights, vikings, and samurai? Ubisoft hopes you can answer that question by playing For Honor. This novel game mashes up elements from team-based shooters and fighting games to create something unique. Does this battle between some of mankind’s greatest warriors live up to the hype?

My Game of the Year for 2017 is…

Game of the year is a weird award for an individual person to reward. Who am I, as one man, to make a bold declaration on which one of the thousands of video games is the best? Especially when I’ve probably played less than 20 of them this year?

The reality is, I can declare my own personal game of the year just like anyone else. How one comes to that conclusion is irrelevant. For me, it’s all about which game I played this year was the best and most impactful, with a tendency to weight the latter more heavily. In a year where I named Catherine my game of the year over Skyrim, I still believe I made the right call. I clamor for the day when a sequel to Catherine would arrive, though I’ve been largely over Skyrim since I completed it years ago.

Enough with the preamble. My 2017 game of the year is….

Nintendo Dominated My 2017

Coming off their biggest home console flop of all-time, most of us did not foresee a world in which Nintendo struck back with a vengeance. Little did we know that the new little console that The Big N unveiled towards the end of 2016 would become a juggernaut. And little did I know that the device would dominate my time and money in 2017.

Gaming in the Suburbs

After six years of living in the city, my wife and I have moved into a house in the suburbs. It’s a major life accomplishment for us that goes well beyond the world of gaming. Having said that, there are some very real ramifications that impact my hobbies. Let’s look at some of the changes in this new suburban world!

Biggest Game Surprise of 2017

2017 has certainly been an eventful one for the video game industry. From Nintendo’s resurrection off the strength of the Nintendo Switch, to the franchise-crushing disappointment of Mass Effect: Andromeda, there was a lot about this year that we didn’t see coming.

In this post, I’m going to highlight the biggest surprise in terms of software. I think the success of the Nintendo Switch would take it hands-down otherwise. Anywho, here’s my biggest video game software surprise of 2017!
