TVTime Year-in-Review

 Alllllright!  I guess there was one more Year In Review for 2023! This one came in while I was on vacation overseas. It seemed interesting enough to post about.  I think March was my busiest month because I probably marked a whole bunch of past seasons of shows as "viewed" and the platform took that to mean that I watched them in 2023.  I wish there was a "watched when originally

TV - Time Trax

 Time TraxAlright! Here's a show that I started to watch a few years back during the COVID lockdowns, which I put to the side due to the camp-factor, and now I decided to slog through in 2023 and watch it.  The show? Time Trax! This show has two seasons (44 episodes) and it was originally on the Prime Time Entertainment Network in 1993-1994.  This was supposedly an affiliate of TV38

Cyberpunk 2077 | Tried

 OK, here's a game I tried, but that I put down after about 3 hours of gameplay (and one achievement).  It's Cyberpunk 2077!   I played this on my Xbox One.  Despite the early hate for the game, I didn't really find that many issues with the graphics of this game on the Xbox One. Sure, there was some clipping, but what can you expect?The setting of the game is "Night City,"

Mortal Kombat XI | Done

And here we are! Drum roll, please!   I've caught up with all my video game backlog!  😂. I finished on 7/1/2023As I mentioned in the previous blog post, I got into MK XI right after I completed the story of MK X.  I started calling this MK: TNG, because you spend a lot of time getting an exposé to the kids of some of the main characters from past MK games, and it sort of felt

Year in Xbox 2023

 And...the final Year in Review for 2023 (seems like last year had fewer than before).  This one for gaming, and specifically on xbox.  It's no surprise that my game of the year was Assassin's Creed Valhalla.  I think in 2022 my most played game was AC: Odyssey.

Mortal Kombat X | Done

Almost done with my backlog! Yay!  OK, this one I finished the main campaign around June 2023.  I had forgotten that Mortal Kombat 9, 10, and 11 were a trilogy,  so when I started this game I had an "oh yeaaaahhh" feeling as the story seemed to be picking up from where it left off (or at least that was what I thought was happening...)Anyway, from a story plot perspective, here's what

Year in Beer

 Admittedly, I don't drink much beer. I used to want to try out new beers a lot more the years before COVID, and in 2021 I decided to take a year off beer (and most alcohol for that matter).  This year I checked into Untappd 77 times, which isn't bad. Some was to drink old favorites, and other times to try out new flavors.

Reddit - Year in Review

 Continuing on with my Year In Review for 2023, today I'll post some screenshots from stuff on Reddit.  Not sure what the algorithm picks up as important on that platform (there was some complaining that I noticed in December), but it's still mildly entertaining. WhitePeopleFacebook is particularly cringeworthy - sometimes you can't look away from a trainwreck...

Books - Year in Review

 Well, here we are!  It's Year-in-Review season!  I've gotten a few of these from the various apps and services that I use so I thought I'd post some of these.  I thought I'd start off with GoodReads since I track my books through that platform. I've been considering moving to the Fediverse or something similar, but still using the Amazon product.   My "goal" for last

Hivebusters | Done

Right after Gears 5, I jumped into the expansion game, titled Hivebusters.  This felt like a short game, but it was rather enjoyable! This one was also completed in  August 2022, and I think it took about 3-5 hours to complete.The game introduces a new squad,brings back some retired characters from past installments of the game (like Col. Hoffman), and a new location with a tropical island
