The Professional Gamer - July 20, 2015

Hello Readers!  I hope you found my weekend post about the new schedule.  If not, you're here anyway, so welcome back.  From here on out, you can read about my weekly adventures on Monday morning, which I feel is more like prime time for the blogging audience.  Enough about that boring business stuff though. I know why you're here!  You want to know what I've done this week.  Read on to find out.

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 12, 2015

This has been another long week at work; which can only mean that I had to make the most of my free time.  And, I feel I had some degree of success this week.  I played a new game, started reading some manga that I've never read, and continued a more in depth viewing of one of my favorite shows.  Read more after the break.

The Professional Gamer - May 29, 2015

Hi Readers!  I'm going to change up the format this week due to Denver Comic Con dominating most of my geeky activities for the past two weeks.  Here we go!

Panels: Despite the kerfluffle caused by a certain panel at DCC, the panels that I attended were overall pretty good.  I found the panels about the Denver indie comics scene, Jurassic Park, and discrimination in pop culture, to be very well run and rewarding to attend.  A big thank you to the moderates and participants on those panels for doing such a great job.

Watching: I finished watching Silver Spoon this past week.  It was a lot of fun, but the later half of the second season is really sad.  I enjoyed that the bad things that happen in the series are not so much treated as things to be fixed, but rather as things for one to move past or adjust their lives around.  I also learned that Samurai Jack is now available on Hulu.  So that's what I'll be watching for the next few weeks.  I also realized that Mako voice Aku.

Reading: I'm trying to work through my large back log of comics purchased at TCAF and DCC.  Look for articles about those to be published in the next few weeks.

That's all for this week.  Join me again next Saturday as I discuss another week in the amazing adventures of the Professional Gamer!
