WILDLY FRUSTRATED: ‘Fallout 4’ declares war on my social life – and wins before its release

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: ‘Fallout 4’ declares war on my social life – and wins before its release

A few months back, I wrote about how “Dragon Age: Inquisition” had completely ruined my life – how it took up months of my life between all the exploration, fighting and warring, collecting materials, crafting, customizing, etc. I have finally finished my quest after clocking in close to 200 hours of gameplay. The battle was […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Gunstar Heroes’ shoots up the run ‘n’ gun competition

While the unique qualities and subtle differences between games, even those in the same genre are always fun to witness. I think those simplistic ideas that unite so many gamers, and especially those heavily influenced by retro games, are always the most delightful. During this month of “Summer Shooters,” we are looking at games with […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: When the hell did I get old?

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: When the hell did I get old?

Last year, I turned 30. I still felt like I had the pep and vigor I had in previous years. I’d go to concerts, movie premiers, and I’d constantly hang out with friends anywhere and everywhere. Actually, none of that has changed since turning 31 a few months ago. And yet something is very different. […]

Local wrestler hopes to see the sport make a comeback at the Lackawanna College Student Union Gym

It’s not Madison Square Garden or Korakuen Hall. It’s not even Philadelphia’s Viking Hall. But the building at 500 Jefferson Avenue in Scranton has a long legacy in the history of professional wrestling. Once, it was known as the Scranton Catholic Youth Center, and just about every WWE wrestler from Bruno Sammartino to Mick Foley, […]

Wow! Can you believe Memorial Day has come and gone and now here we are in the month of June? Summer is officially coming this month, so I decided that Turn to Channel 3 should take a look at some games with a lot of shooting, a lot of explosions and, overall, a ton of […]

TURN TO CHANNEL 3: ‘Conker’s Bad Fur Day’ gave us the best days of the N64

May was a great month for your scribe. Not only did I turn 34 with some great family and friends around me, but I also got to go to an old school arcade, purchase some classic games that I had been looking for seemingly forever, and I got an original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party […]

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: Creativity is dead, and I know the killers and their motives!

WILDLY FRUSTRATED: Creativity is dead, and I know the killers and their motives!

There will not be a gentle, gradual slide into my argument today. I am the prosecutor in the court of public opinion, and today I am stating my case to the judge and jury. Or maybe I’m a lunatic on the streets raising a makeshift sign over my head proclaiming “the end” to any passersby. […]
