Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Me too. I go looking for them and there aren't honestly a lot of good sources for them, so this is a good idea

        It’s an article we do every year. It just doesn’t appear again on Chatty when we update it.

          Ahh ok, it would be cool if you could make it pop back up on the chatty every time it's updated.

          Would probably be good for SEO, too.

          Nice. I know I don't speak for everybody, but I wouldn't mind a "dropping this month" repost occasionally throughout the year.

            That's info the Morning Reading and LNC consoling posts would have had right?

            It's been forever since I even thought about non rolling chatty.

      With no new movies, and no new tv shows, and no concert tours VIDEO GAMES ARE NEEDED!

      • reply
        October 12, 2020 8:22 PM

        It must be very difficult to do some aspects of video game creation from home - like working with tens of gigabytes of content, uncompressed - that kind of thing.

      Witchfire should be on your no release date list. There’s a possibility it might even be out in ‘21.
