Cary’s Top PlayStation Games

klonoaiconIt’s the 20th Anniversary of the original PlayStation!  Well, technically 2014 was, since it was released in Japan in 1994.  BUT, I’m counting the US release, which was 20 year ago.  So in honor of that, here is a list of my favorite original PlayStation games!  Keep in mind that list this isn’t in any particular order, though.  All right, let’s begin!

Cary’s Top Five LEAST Favorite Kirby Games

KIRBYCLAYA new Kirby game is being released this week: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.  I’m always excited when a new Kirby game comes out.  I like Kirby games better than Mario titles!  And usually when a new Kirby game comes out, I like to write a blog about Kirby.  So this time I’m going to write about my LEAST favorite Kirby games.  Why so negative?  Well, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is actually a sequel to Kirby Canvas Curse, one of the games on this list.  But don’t worry.  None of the games on my list are BAD games.  There’s no such thing as a bad Kirby game.  I just like these games less than others.  And this list isn’t in any particular order either.  So let’s roll!

PAX South 2015: Part 2: Costumed Crazies & Eager Beavers

CLAPTRAPAt PAX as well as other gaming and cartoon conventions, many people like to dress as their favorite characters.  So for Part 2 of my PAX South article, we’ll take a look at my favorite costumes that I was able to take a picture of (and could recognize who they were).  And we’ll also look at some other things I did around San Antonio when I wasn’t at PAX.  There’s a lot of stuff to do there in the city, too!

PAX South 2015: Part 1: Gaming in the Lone Star State

PAXSOUTHLOGOThe Penny Arcade Expo, or PAX for short, is one of the biggest gaming conventions open to the public.  It’s been around for a good while, but at first it was only limited to being in Seattle.  Over the past few years, that’s changed as there have been PAX conventions in Boston and even Australia!  And now, for the first time ever, they had a PAX South convention located in San Antonio, TX last weekend!  I live near Dallas, TX, so I thought that was cool that they had one so close to where I am!  Usually when I go to PAX in Seattle, I only bring one or two people with me.  But for PAX South, I had a whole crowd including both my parents, almost all of my little brothers, and a few of my good friends, too!  Keep reading to find out everything I did at the show last weekend!

Cary’s Top Ten Favorite Guilty Gear Characters!

BAIKENRecently I played and reviewed the new PS3 fighting game Guilty Gear Xrd –SIGN–.  A lot of times when I play a new fighting game, I like to talk about the characters a bit.  So here’s a blog about my top ten favorite Guilty Gear characters.  Just a fair warning, though.  I was in a silly mood when I wrote this, and I usually like characters who are silly anyway so this blog will be a little goofy.  Plus I don’t have a whole lot of knowledge of the Guilty Gear franchise.  I’ve only played this new game and Guilty Gear Dust Strikers on the DS.  And the only reason why I got the DS version was because it was on sale and had silly little mini-games featuring some of the fighters.  I have watched some of my friends play the other Guilty Gear games, though.  And the characters I listed here aren’t in any particular order of preference.  So anyway, let’s begin!

Cary’s “Best Games of the Year 2014 Awards Show!”

PACSMASHIt’s that time again.  What I like to do this time of year is write about the best games of the year.  Keep in mind that no outside opinions went into the making of this list.  It’s just my own picks.  And if a game is missing from my list, it either didn’t appeal to me as much, or I just simply haven’t played it yet.  Can’t play all the games out there, you know!  Plus I do apologize if this list leans toward the Nintendo side.  I don’t have an Xbox One or PS4 yet, so you’ll just have to deal with it.
