hardrock’s Best of 2013

2013 was another very interesting year for video games. Reboots, new console launches and the subject of DRM among other things. Plus it was a year I personally learned that retro gaming is just as important as modern games, game collecting can become a full time and expensive hobby, branching out into more different ways …

Some people collect coins, others stamps. I collect video games. If you have been reading this ongoing series, first thank you, second it’s no secret that I like horror games.

Re: Finding Lost Treasures – Spontaneous Lesson Learned

Some people collect coins, other stamps. I collect video games. It’s funny when life imitates art, especially when its comedy like in this case. I enjoy the sitcom The Big Bang Theory. If you’ve ever seen the show, there’s a particular episode called “The Nerdvana Annihilation” where one of the main characters named Leonard Hofstadter bids $800 on …

Re: Finding Lost Treasures – Over and Under Budget Edition

Some people collect coins, other stamps. I collect video games. It’s amazing what you can do with money, especially when on a budget. After all, we really need to stretch out that dollar as much as we can these days. Returning back to my local “flea” market, I told myself that I would pick something up …

Re: Finding Lost Treasures – Monsters and X-Wings Edition

Some people have their stamps, some have coins. I collect video games. Most everyone likes a good scary story. It gets the blood pumping and at rare times gives you that rush of adrenaline that you need once in a while to make you feel alive. Or make you glad that you are alive. Anyone …
