Some of my favorite video games articles are when people breakdown all of their favorite games. A gamer as long as I can remember, it always gets me thinking about my favorite games and how I’d never really quantified/categorized them in that manner. In high school, we were tasked to write about a collection of ours and I wrote about (and was mildly ridiculed for) my video game collection. But even that was more focused on what my collection of video games said about me as a person. For example, I argued that video games were, in part, responsible for my intelligence and problem solving skills as I grew up playing more on strategy games or role-playing games than first-person shooters. It has been nice to see these thoughts validated in the years since through numerous studies about the positive effects video games have on a variety of faculties.
Co-Op with Catherine was a recurring feature published on Trevor Trove between September 2, 2015 and January 2, 2016. All seven installments have been combined herein.

TL;DR(ant) – Today brought us the latest in the ever-increasing number of shady pre-order schemes.
TL;DR(eview) – Adventures of Pip is a charming platformer inspired by and drawing from the best of the NES and SNES eras. A good buy if you enjoy 2D-era games of the genre.
In July 2014, I started what I considered to be my first really “adult” job.

This new job doubled my salary so I found myself with far more disposable income than I was accustomed to spending.
