Short Takes: Games Are Rad!!





Happy freaking Christmas, or whatever holiday you enjoy! Or, if you don’t celebrate anything, I wish you a good absence of holidays!


My name is Rebekah!


Okay, deep breath here, I just wanted to say how much I love games and gaming and how it brings so many of us together. That’s remarkable and wonderful. I’m so grateful.

Tonight, I will be at my favorite arcade: Ground Kontrol!! There will be games and mirth and beverages and snacks and quarters and silliness and neon and wonder.

I’m looking forward to it.

This weekend I hope to get to some Super Mario Odyssey among all the holiday activities.

What will YOU be playing this weekend?

Please be safe out there and stay radical, friends. CHEERS!!

    I probably won’t be playing much this weekend, since family is coming in to visit. I’ve actually been in a bit of a gaming slump – I have a lot of great games to play, but I can never decide which to go with. I haven’t played a game in probably a week, at least. When I get back to it, it’ll probably be with either AC Origins, Resident Evil 7, or Borderlands 2, with a friend. :-)

      I hear you there. I’d like to play Odyssey, but I don’t want to tune everyone out. Or maybe I do! No, I don’t. But I do want to play Odyssey!



    • Nice! Heading back to the somewhat recent past! It’s funny you say that, because I was just telling my partner this week that I’d like to go back to a bunch of last gen games I missed. It’s one of my goals for 2018.



  2. I’ll try to sqeeuze in some Xenoblade!
    By the way, we plan on doing another one of our American tours this summer, and this one includes Portland and Seattle!
    Have fun, enjoy your days off and away. You certainly earned it with the way your year has been! 😘

    • I hope you enjoy Xenoblade!

      Oh my goodness!! I hope you have the best time!! If you want any recommendations for places to go, just let me know and I will send them your way. :)

      It has been an interesting trip so far, and I am so grateful to be with family. I hope your holiday is delightful, too!

  3. I hope everyone has a great holiday or just a relaxing day off! I’m hoping to finish The Fractured But Whole before year’s end, but it might not happen before I put together my games of the year. It might be relegated to an honorable mention.

    In the theme of the 80’s vibe the pictures give me, I hope that during the holidays and every day we all “Be excellent to each other!” :)

    • Nothing like time-bending farts to celebrate the holidays! :) Whether you finish it or not, I hope you enjoy your time with it.

      HA! I agree; let’s all be excellent to each other!


  4. Video games are rad! Every gift giving holiday my wish list is simple – video games, books, comics and t-shirts/hoodies. I’m a simple person. Now I need to try out the Destiny 2 DLC and weigh my winter video gale sales options. I’m leaning towards Observer but also considering Injustice 2 (that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle DLC has me wanting to play). Not so secretly I want to customize my own Xbox One controller but I need to save money. Let’s go free time to play video games!
