​TAY Time Chat - Things to Do, Castles to Raid...

The end of the month is drawing in pretty fast, and between all of my small side-projects I'm trying to juggle, I noticed that I didn't really get to enjoy the spookiness of October like I thought I was going to. Sure, I did get to play The Evil Within, but... that was about it. I was hoping I would get to go through… » 10/28/14 5:00pm Tuesday 5:00pm

​Hidden Treats in… Costume Quest

Costume Quest is the pinnacle of Halloween gaming fun. It's not particularly scary and it's not filled with flesh-eating zombies, but it does have something I rarely see anymore: Halloween spirit. In any medium, there are very few tales that live up to that same kind of wide-eyed wonderment that we gave to Halloween… » 10/24/14 3:00pm Friday 3:00pm

​Hidden Treats in... Majora's Mask

Call me crazy, but I always thought Majora's Mask was a pretty dark game. Maybe it's the giant moon that glares at you as it slowly kills you. Maybe it's the fact that you're assuming the roles of a bunch of dead people that don't look too pleased when you put on their faces. Maybe it's even that one notoriously… » 10/17/14 4:00pm 10/17/14 4:00pm

​TAY Time Chat - Say Hello!

I had a kind of awkward encounter when I was grocery shopping yesterday. When I was checking out, I noticed the woman behind the register looked pretty familiar. Before I could say anything, she said, "Hey!" in an incredibly familiar tone, so I said, "Hey! You go to school with me, right?" Turns out we were in one of… » 10/14/14 5:00pm 10/14/14 5:00pm

​Hidden Treats in... Symphony of the Night

If there's anything that Castlevania taught me about Bram Stoker's Dracula, it's that Dracula lives in a giant castle that keeps self destructing them popping up again every once in a while. He has to deal with some jerks of neighbors named the Belmonts, and he always has to deal with them coming in and disturbing his… » 10/10/14 2:00pm 10/10/14 2:00pm

​TAY Time Chat: Strange Places

Over the weekend, I had an incredibly strange dream. Maybe it was all of the nostalgia brought on by shunning my homework over a particularly well-loved franchise, but... it was pretty bizarre. I grew up just outside of the city limits for our state's largest city, so that entire area was subject to a ton of urban… » 10/07/14 5:00pm 10/07/14 5:00pm

Hidden Treats in... Luigi's Mansion

There's something shocking and amazing happening this month. I'll give you a hint: it's something that, deep down, everyone looks forward to. No, it's not Smash Brothers or Fantasy Life. It's Halloween! And it's actually coming up a lot sooner than you might think. In fact, it's actually only a few Fridays away! I… » 10/03/14 2:00pm 10/03/14 2:00pm

​TAY Time Chat - Cartastrophe

When I took my car in last Tuesday to get the oil changed, one of the mechanics told me that I had a ton of corrosion on my car battery and that he expected a short somewhere. I was kind of dreading this, as I've been really bad about taking care of my car this year for whatever reason. Either way, I ended up having… » 9/30/14 5:00pm 9/30/14 5:00pm

​TAY Time Chat - Jack the (NEW) Cat

This seems like the perfect opportunity to rub in everyone's face that I got a brand new cat. He's about one year old, and used to have a really ridiculous name which I will not speak of. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's ridiculous pet names, so I had to rename him to something decent like Jack. Don't let me… » 9/16/14 5:00pm 9/16/14 5:00pm
