Creating a character that I could pour a Read MoreNo Comments on GAMING POINT OF LOU QUICK HIT – STATUS REPORT!!!
Recently I had the great fortune to attend Awesome Con 2019, having been told how fantastic a show it was for the past few years by my good friend and Destiny clan mate, I packed up the camera gear, and headed down to our Nations Capitol to scope it out.

Unfortunately what I installed on launch day was a shell of what I was led to believe the game would be. While Read MoreNo Comments on GAMING POINT OF LOU – THE DIVISION 2 CLOSED BETA
One could argue that coming out of this past year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, no game had more hype surrounding it than BioWare’s upcoming shared world shooter Anthem, and while the months between the show in June and this past December were relatively quiet on the information front, in the weeks leading up to their VIP Read MoreNo Comments on GAMING POINT OF LOU – THE ONE ABOUT ANTHEM
Dungeons and Dragons has experienced a hefty popularity boost in the past decade, due not only to the resurgence of tabletop gaming as a whole, but also the meteoric rise of various live streaming sites such as Twitch, which have allowed shows such as: “Critical Role” to carve out rather significant viewership numbers.
