Playing Around – Time to Switch

The newest gaming console making waves right now is the Nintendo Switch. A lot of gamers have been excited about it because of the different playability (being able to play it as a standalone or on a tv, for one) and the games that will eventually be available for it. Of course, it’s yet another system that runs a few hundred dollars so many are on the fence about whether to get it.  Continue reading

The Gamer Geek Blog – Triple A Drought

GGBHey geeksters!

So after a few weeks of no real games coming out I realized that we are kinda in a drought for triple A games.
