  1. CounterStrike Global Offensive gets some customizations

    CounterStrike Global Offensive is getting its share of wacky items and customization. Valve has been pushing these drops as incentives to play more. While it used to be limited to Valve games such as Team Fortress 2, Valve has helped spread their model to many other major games with the use of Steam Trading Cards. It was fun for other games, to get a set of cards as you play, it seems out of place in CS:GO.

I guess I miss the excitement of opening a pack of cards and pulling out a shiny Charizard card or catching the 40th Abra that appeared since the rest teleported away.

  5. Pokemon World Championships 2013

    This year's Pokemon World Championships were held in Vancouver and I had to drop in to check out the event. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours and relive some good memories.
