Alessio & The Beastly Backlog: Hotline Miami 2 (Vita)

Alessio & The Beastly Backlog is an excuse for me to be held accountable for completing my massive video game backlog. These articles are a hybrid of experiential reflection, informal critical reaction to the content, and a springboard for discussion on all of our social channels. Plus, I like talking about games and what better way to kill two birds with one stone?

This series is fair game for spoiler territory, and so with that being said, if you haven’t completed the game in question and want to have a completely unhindered experience, please refrain from reading any further.

This week: Hotline Miami 2 for the Playstation Vita. SPOILER ALERT: No bueno, guys. It hurts me to say that…

Metal Gear Mondays: MGS V is Kojima’s Masterpiece?

Metal Gear Monday is a series that I’m reviving from the old coffers of Geek Time passed, where I pick something about the Metal Gear series of games and either draft an article, record some audio, do a video, or generally just analyze on a Monday. It helps get the week started off nicely for me, and hopefully it will contain some tidbits about the franchise that you enjoy reading. And, just as an FYI — THIS SERIES IS FAIR GAME FOR SPOILER TERRITORY. 

Like all of my content for Geek Time, I really like to hear back from readers and fans, so if you want to dive into the conversation, point out any errors that I’ve made, or want to present your interpretation on a topic, we’d love to hear from you! Be sure to let us know what you think via Facebook, Twitter, or via email, and if you want to contact me directly feel free to do so via Twitter, or send me an email as well.

This week I’m talking about how Hideo Kojima may’ve finally made THE Metal Gear game. The mechanics and technology may’ve finally caught up to Kojima’s original vision over two decades in the making.

Aaron’s Old Dragon Ball Z Binder | An Unboxing Video

Here’s a sneak peak at some video content that we produced whenever I went and visited Sam, James, Aaron, and Erica this past weekend! It’s a little long-winded, but we had fun and thought you would too. Next video will be short and sweet and show-off a lot more of what we did the weekend THAT WE FINALLY ALL MET IN PERSON FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOUR YEARS (Ed. And none of us were murderers)! Enjoy.
