Expectation vs. Reality in video games
A little humor from last week's gamercat
Break? What's a break?
From last week's gamercat (I think the author is taking a break). As for me... not so much...full steam ahead for dissertation proposal. The literature review is half way done. I've completed writing the MOOC part and I am moving onto the Collaboration part. The MOOC part still needs editing, and it would make any APA aficionado weep, but the core is there.
Gamercat waits for Greek Santa ;-)
A little holiday humor from Gamercat that I just came across. A little late for most western Santas (St. Nicholas), but not that late for Greek Santa (St. Basil).
The human cooks!
This made me smile this past weekend :-)I've heard of butterball turkeys in the past, but have never really bothered to look up what makes the different from 'regular' turkeys
A game plan for playing games
A little humor from last week's gamercat. I think I went through the 'must play every game' phase when I was in middle school, I've slowly paired it down to the 'I only have so much time, what do I want to play?' :-) The urge to play (or at least try) them all though is still there :)
Insanity over nintendo...
I came across last week's gamercat and it made me laugh, and ponder, a bit. Why are nintendo titles generally not available at launch, under-stocked, and over-priced? Even old games for the DS are not cheap (sometimes they are cheaper on ebay used, but not always). What gives?
Για όσους έχουν γάτους
Από το κόμικ the gamercat, της περασμένη εβδομάδας ;-) Έτσι για να γελάσουμε λίγο με τους μικρούς μας "φίλους" :p
PS Vita revival? :p

I love the whipping that the Playstation Vita gets from time to time ;-). It's not that I didn't want the system to succeed, but between the lack of support and the many proprietary features...well it was begging to be on top of the dirt pile :-)
How to get rid of Magikarp...
From last week's (or from two weeks ago?) Gamercat - how to get rid of your Magikarp... I do wonder if anyone is still playing that game (Magikarp jump). I found it dull and repetitive.
From last week's gamercat, a commentary on the stupid game (on mobile) of Magickarp jump... (yes, it's stupid - as stupid as Office Space: Idle Profits)
How to get treats, if you're a cat
Yes...this trick works really well ;-) (from last week's gamer cat comic)
Throwing money at Nintendo...

From last week's gamercat... As much as I want to throw money at Nintendo for the switch, I can't justify the cost and game availability (and cost thereof). As a child of the 90s though....Nintendo! (i.e. irrational behaviors at times)
Sour grapes, gamer cat!
I agree that the VR stuff costs a lot of money, but given a compelling game, and a compelling price, I'd play those games :-). From last week's gamer cat comic.
Playing games with someone better than you...
I feel your pain, GamerCat...
Gaming with cats...
A little found humor this week from Gamercat. Describes perfectly my gameplay while Ezio (my cat) is around...
4k pixel goodness!
I really don't get the whole craze around the NES classic. I never had an NES (but I've played games on it). I've played enough games on emulators, and granted the keyboard isn't as satisfying as a gamepad, if I felt like playing those games more often I'd go the Sweets route (orange cat here) - just get the original console and a CRT ;-)
Nothing interferes with gaming!
From the most recent GamerCat - I bet it tastes like chicken ;-)
Slayer of beasts
Funny gamercat comic strip from this past week. Can slay tons of beasts in games...but not a spider.
Pumpkin spice already?!
This from a recent gamercat comic strip. Soon I guess we'll all be buying Christmas gifts in the summer ;-)
Free-to-play? or pay-to-win?

GamerCat explains mobile F2P gaming :-)
ROFL - had a good laugh at this past week's GamerCat. It's exactly how I felt when my first Poke-egg hatched and out came a ...ratata X(
More on achievements and trophies
Wednesday, Aug 3 2016 16:09 | achievements, comics, Entertainment, gamercat, Humor, video games, VideoGames, XBOX
A little gamercat humor for you :-). While playing Star Trek Online I don't often think of achievements (since my achievements/medals aren't visible anywhere). This past week though I started playing Bully again on my xbox and I started wondering what achievements exist, and what I need to do to get them :-)
Animal behavior explained...
Now this explains my cat's behavior...
Having just found out about mid-summer game sales... well... this was humorous :-)
