Horizon Forbidden West

games geek review

Horizon Forbidden West is Guerrilla Games latest action role-playing game following the protagonist, Aloy, through a post-apocalyptic North America. If you haven’t played Horizon Zero Dawn, then you should really go out and play it. As one of my all-time favorite modern games, and is a must have game for the PlayStation 4 and 5. I have just completed Horizon Forbidden West (HFW) and achieved the Platinum Trophy. Here’s my thoughts on the game.

New Look and Feel

site geek

It’s the COVID isolation theme… A bit more svelte and easier to handle, but still in the vein of what I’ve established as my style. Right about now, is when I start talking about how I wish I would write more and that I will probably do it from now on…then the site sits still for months and months. So I won’t be saying that. I would like to write more, but time is not on my side.

Rating Systems: What does it mean?

geek thoughts review

The lack of standardized rating systems sucks. There’s so many ways to rate something that you begin to lose all understanding what what something means. Even systems designed to simplify things muddy the waters, because they often lack the granularity that allows for meaning to be derived. I’ll offer a guide… TL/DR - After distilling all other rating systems, this is where I sit when I rate things. Current Systems There’s a ton of rating systems out there but, in most cases, they follow a simple numerical ranking to the need.

Automated Blinds

I’ve really be into home automation lately. “Hey Alexa, turn on my living room lights!” It’s been interesting diving into the world of home automation. But the one thing I could not fine (at least reasonably priced), was something that would open and close my blinds. Since I’m currently on parental leave from work and needed something to exercise my mind, I decided to tackle it myself. Two Step Process The whole approach was going to be two fold, find out if it is possible…then automate it.

Data Driven Site

geek site

I’m quite proud of my homepage. As I said before, I used to use services like and for my main page because they did something particular…that gathered my info in one place. From social sites to image sites, these tools did that easily. But I started to realize I wasn’t showing what I really wanted…additionally I was having a hard time keeping those connections up as well. So it was time to make my own.

2015 - Where do we go next?

commentary geek

So if you look at my old site you’ll see I made one post in 2015. One solitary post in January of that year, then nothing. There was a reason for that. If you read that post, you’ll see it was about simplifying my life. One of those things I did, was remove myself from blogging for a time. I don’t know if it helped or hurt, but it was one of the things I did.

New Site!

site geek

I did it! I once again threw off the shackles of the old skin and slapped a new one on. This one is bigger, bolder, better, beautifuler, boomier, ballsier, boisterous, blistering, boilermaking, and bombastic. At least I like to think so. What do you think? Notebook The notebook is my new blog. I have cover images, large titles, and embeds. The “hamburger” icon [ ], yes…that’s really what it is called and I’m not a fan either but it’s a convention, will get you to all my personal links.
