I guess I just don’t get the world these days.
It seems things that used to be commonplace last generation are forgotten relics these days – simple things like manners and common courtesy are strangely absent in the society landscape at this point. I drive from point A to point B, and there will always be some example of humanity driving like a baboon, jerking from lane to lane, cutting off anyone who gets in their way.
You walk through a supermarket, and rather than letting people out of a side aisle, they form this gridlock line and heaven help you if you try to get out – you’ll be stuck there a while.
People these days even form message boards and groups just for the sole purpose of how some person or some company sucks and should be done away with!
It’s sad! It’s almost getting to the point where I don’t hardly want to go out anymore because I don’t want to run into another person who thinks the world revolves around them, and that everyone else is a lesser human being.
If you go to a restaurant and have an issue with the food, they look shocked if you’re polite! That should be expected! I can see people getting frustrated from time to time, but when your first response is to want to knock someone on their can, I just can’t respect that. We should have come farther as a people than this, yet we still just can’t play nice in the sandbox.
Lately, I’ve started up a new series on my channel called “Random Game Reviews”. I started this by looking for interesting games on Steam for cheap, and then letting people know what I think of them, along with a rating system that has been taking shape. I usually rate them 2 thumbs up, 1 thumb up, mixed, 1 thumb down, or 2 thumbs down.
Most recently, I’ve started getting even more random with it! It started with a free game I won in a giveaway by Tech Deals, who does a really cool channel about technology, game performance, and how to get the most bang for your buck. The best part is that it’s very clearly done, plus it’s family friendly, which is great, because I don’t want to have my kids watch tech videos learning about computers that are filled with cursing.
After I reviewed that game and put it up, I received another one, as he enjoyed that video, so I did one for that one too! I’ve started getting my kids involved with it too, as they enjoy making videos with me. It’s been a lot of fun, and it gives us something to do on the weekends. I appreciate the games that have been sent to me by Tech Deals a lot, and he has a fun sense of humor.
I think this will be an ongoing series, no matter where the games come from, so I hope people enjoy watching them!

I had a ton of fun making this video. When I did the reveal segment at the end, I was trying to figure out the perfect music, and the music in Filmora fit in perfectly!
This week, on the Random Game Review, we look back at Ubisoft’s “Outland” from 2014!
For people who love drawing and digital painting, this program and an inexpensive graphics tablet may be all you need. Check it out!
This week, I heard the news that has the internet all up in an uproar – the discontinuation of the NES Classic (aka NES Mini). This caught a lot of people unawares and brought about a lot of hate towards the Big N on such a move. Many people would ask:
“What…..Nintendo doesn’t like making money?” I’ve pondered this question myself quite a bit. Upon reading some articles, it was said that they never intended it to be a long-term product.
Wait…………what?? Something as insanely popular as this console has become, and you don’t see the value of having this product become readily available for the mass markets, and then you just yank the rug out from your consumers, pretty much saying “You want it? Go pay a scalper!”
Yeah…….the scalpers are rejoicing at this news, as some of them bought this system up by the ton, stockpiling their quantities so they could flip them onto the secondary markets, making at least twice, if not many times more, what they originally paid them for – this is something that happens with every. single. collectible. thing. ever. Yes……it happens.
So what do people do? Well, some people willingly jump off the cliff like Lemmings to pay the scalpers what they want – or they build something cool like a Raspberry Pi 3 and load all the games on that to make their own version – or they just start using emulators – something many people have been doing for quite some time now.
It just amazes me why they decided to do this move when the cravings are akin to a school of piranha, swimming about a lake when a fresh piece of meat gets tossed in. The demand is there, but apparently, Nintendo has decided to focus more energies on the Switch, which has been met with mixed reviews and reception. So will Nintendo make these games affordable to download on the Switch e-store, or will they do some other move to further alienate their audiences, and make them look elsewhere to find good games, while Nintendo continues to flail about, waving their core IP’s around like a banner to see how many times we’ll come back to the flock to buy their prodcuts.
This video was a lot of fun to make, and thanks to my friend CrashOverride, we were able to test all three in the $1650 Midnight Rig build.
