Updates for August

Since the beginning of the month, I have been recording a lot of game footage that will be popping up all month long on my YouTube account, including more episodes of Chasing Perfection.

And, seeing as today is August 8th, 2012, make sure to check out 1MoreCastle.com and ReviewABadGameDay.com for all of the Review A Bad Game Day videos and articles. My craptastic review (both the game and my review. HEY, HEY!!) of Winter Games on the NES will be featured on 1MoreCastle.com before it goes live on my YouTube page.

I also have a review of Ben Landis' Adventures in Pixels that I've been meaning to post for quite some time now. Honestly, the album is awesome -- PLUS it comes with a comic that corresponds with the album.
^Fantasticals!
