Ultima VI: The False Prophet (1990)

The first week of school is always a hectic week for UNLV, and it has been extremely crazy. My writing and adding stupid quips to the daily drops has been on the low-side. I haven’t even had time to work on Cringe Cinema Club or Super Cool Game Club much other than quick daily drops in Facebook and Instgram (at least on the accounts that still exist on Insta).

And the January playlist on YouTube as well:

Weekly Finds

I pull a lot of the items about gaming and movie news here from a number of sources: The Atari Age forums, Retro Indie NewsTime ExtensionIGNRetro Hour podcastItch.io, Facebook, Twitter, etc. What shows up here will change weekly depending on what I happen to find in the wild. I try to include the original sources in the links.

Panini Sticker Albums

These were great and terrible. Listen, I’m horrible at putting stickers on things. I do Legos all the time and they always end up wonky. But these were even worse. They had hella fresh stickers, though. I just couldn’t stick them correctly!
