The Professional Gamer - Anouncement

Hi Readers!  We're changing up our publishing schedule here.  From now on, "The Professional Gamer" will be published on Monday mornings from here out.  I'll still be composing them during my usual Friday evening time slot, so there will be somewhat more lag in the schedule, but I'm hoping that I'll catch some more eyeballs with the revised publishing schedule.

If anyone happens to have a strong opinion on this, please drop me a line in comments section below.

Batman: Arkham Knight - Review

Batman: Arkham Knight - Review

The final game of Rocksteady's Arkham series has been released. Our last venture out  as the Dark Knight has come for Xbox One, PS4, and arguably the PC.  This takes place one year after the events of Arkham City. Most of the criminals that were held in the neighborhood spanning prison were set free as they were held illegally. This means that Two Face, Penguin, Harley Quinn, and Riddler were all free people. They even laid low and crime dropped in Gotham. In fact things were looking great for the citizens of Gotham. Then on Halloween night Scarecrow returned. It started with a small demonstration of fear gas at a diner. Which then lead to a full scale evacuation of the whole city. Now it is up to the Batman to prevent Scarecrow and the other villains from destroying  Gotham, and perhaps the country.

R.I.P Satoru Iwata

Satoru Iwata unfortunately passed away yesterday. Nintendo reports it was from a bile duct growth. Satoru Iwata was a very familiar face to Nintendo fans and he was very active in the community. Between Nintendo Direct and Iwata Asks he always tried to be at the fore front of what Nintendo was doing. He will be missed.

The Professional Gamer - July 4, 2015

Happy Independence Day! (And a Happy Canada Day to our northern readers!)  Due to the holiday, I've had a short week at work; which means that I've been able to enjoy some geeky time.  Most of my day was spent (re)learning how to play a space-sim.  But I had a lot of fun with it.  Read on to learn more!

The Professional Gamer - June 20, 2015

Hi everyone! This has been a fun week with some great time spent watching new(ish) cartoons as well as a little bit of video games and some reading.  Also, my RPG group is looking at changing this up a bit, so I'll be reporting on that for the next few weeks as we get settled in again.
