I stumbled on the qualification round for the 2017 MarbleLympics last night.  I proceeded to watch the first 4 events before I realized the time.  This morning I finished the entire games.  What a rush of excitement it was.  I won’t give many spoilers, except to say that there were plenty of upsets and new … Continued

I’ve sunk more hours into playing Halo 3 than I have done a fair amount of other things.  Many a night was spent awake with my stable of friends on Social Big Team Battle.  Usually the 8 of 12-14 of us would get together, sometimes we’d break up into two groups of 6, or 7 … Continued
