Wanted to post up a few videos of some of the OverWatch games I’ve had lately on the PS4.  I’ve had some really fun and really frustrating games!

This was an escort mission that started out a little slow, but once we got going, it moved along pretty steady.  I catch the other team with a flank that almost wipes their team and gets me the POTG!  Enjoy!


Here is one of my Reinhardt matches.  I had fun on this one because my team really took advantage of Reinhardt’s shield and we got to move into the zones pretty quickly.  I got into it with the other Reinhardt and missed pinning him…I died :(.  I made up for it at the next point!!


Thanks for stopping by.  Have you been playing any OverWatch?  What do you think about it??


PAX South!!

This is my first year to attend Pax South, located in San Antonio Texas.  This is the 2nd year of the “Southern” Pax, and I can’t wait to check it all out.  This year it runs Jan 29-31st.  I unfortunately missed Friday, but twitter, and instagram are full of posts about how great the first day was, and how much everyone is looking forward to the rest of the weekend.

Be sure to check back for my posts and impressions of this show!


If you have any suggestions for things I NEED to check out while I’m here please be sure to leave me some comments!! Or send me some suggestions on Twitter!!

Something else to try.

Hey there again everyone.  Thanks again for stopping by.  I wanted to share with you another place to find me, and hopefully get a little more interaction from me.  I am starting to do more streaming of my game play.   My plan is to stream pretty much every time I play any game.   My setup is still in the building stages, but I am working through those technical hiccups as they come up.  Also my schedule is still very crazy with work and some online schooling, but I still want to be involved in the gaming community and maybe create my own little community of fellow gamers.

Head over to http://www.twitch.tv/oldskewlmarc and be sure to follow me.  That way you will get a notice of when I am gaming.

Also head to http://www.youtube.com/oldskewlmarc and subscribe there as well.  I will be posting highlights of the stream.

If you stream games or have a YouTube channel, be sure to leave me a comment so i can stop by and say hey!  I love to support fellow gamers and streamers!!

Thanks again for stopping by!!

Getting Back

Hello welcome back. If its your first time…Welcome!!

Just a quick post about where I have been spending my gaming time the last few weeks since my last post.
I missed some time not long after my last post at the hospital. My baby ended up there with dehydration. What we thought would be a one to two day stay turned into a five day stay. Lots of days back and fourth with my wife staying there with the baby and me running the older two around to school and soccer practices and homework and…you get the point, no time for any pc or console gaming. And I can’t remember what I was playing on the phone. But now that everyone is all better and back home, time is still pretty limited. Thanksgiving breaks and Christmas coming, everything is crazy!

Now that things are settling in better most of my gaming time has been in Warcraft. I’ve only gotten my mage to 86 and that was maybe 2 nights ago. I have also been working on my alts just trying out different parts of the game with them. I got my Shaman to level 60 so now I can fly. I have really been enjoying him lately especially in battlegrounds. I played a mage so long it’s weird for me to get a character up close to do damage. I have also leveled my druid to level 30. I mostly play this one as a healer and again its such a different style of play it has taken me some time to get used to it. I’ve had a few really fun BG’s lately with my healer so it keeps me going back.

The only other game that I have been playing is a little of COD:Blops 2. I haven’t gone back to the campaign at all. I have been playing multi-player, but mostly the league play. I like the many different game types that it offers and the chance to compete with people of my skill level. As much as I love FPS games, I just am not that good at them. LOL With the league I feel like I have a chance to win something.

I’m still looking at throwing a podcast together at some point. There are ducks and rows involved and hopefully I can get them together. Stay tuned 🙂

Just want to make a quick shout out to everyone at the Frogpants-LoseIt group and say keep it up!! A bunch of great people supporting each other in their weight loss/maintenance journey!

I gotta make some time!!

Hey there again, I think about this page a lot, and I think about the kind of content I want on it. The thing about it is this…it doesn’t matter what kind of blog I have if I never post to it. So I’m going to try and be better. I will try and post something every chance I get and see what kind of life this thing takes on. I’ll keep twitter for the random 144 character posts, but I HAVE to put something here, I WANT to put something here. I got enough going on that I NEED to be putting it down somewhere.

I’ll give a quick update so this isn’t just a rant on posting something meaningful, and then its nothing..meaningful.

Here is what i have been playing this past few weeks.
Dishonored – I still haven’t escaped the prison. Not for lack of trying, but lack of time. By the time I got back to playing this, Assassins Creed had release. I will go back to this one soon, I really like the “steampunk” feel and look to this one.

Assassins Creed 3 – Played the first two missions and I have to say that I really like the look of this game. The time period of the game and the feel of the town is great. I have a few issues with some of the controls, but the more I play it I think it will work itself out.

Halo 4 – I have mostly played the multiplayer on this one. I haven’t leveled to much just yet mostly cause I’m just ok at first person shooters, but I love playing them. The maps look amazing. Every map has a great feel to it and from what little time I’ve spent on them they feel pretty balanced.
As far as the single player campaign, I still haven’t gotten off of the ship, but I can’t stay away from the multi. I will say this though, the opening cut scene was one of the best I have ever seen, and cannot wait to see how the rest of this new trilogy plays out.

Black Ops 2 – My most recent purchase and the reason the other three games have been put on hold. Again with this one it has been almost strictly multiplayer. I seem to be doing better at moving up on this one, but I still don’t finish as strong as I would like on most games. Again, I need to learn the maps, and how to shoot. Hahaha
On this one my single player time has been the first mission.

Lots of great games out at the moment, and many more are on the way. I will have a better review of all of these games at some point soon.

Looks like I need to find some more time for my games, and my blog.

The start of something new…at least new for me.

Hey there, as you can see from the name of this post, this is the start of something new for me. I have played with the idea of blogging some and never was quite sure what I was about, or what my point would be.

I mean I know what I like, and I know who I am, but why would i need to put something on the web for others to see or hear? Why would anyone care about coming to my site and seeing updates that I put out. I then i kind of realized that was the wrong idea of me putting stuff out there. I need to do it for me, and hope that I make a few friends in the process. This is my chance to delve into a hobby or format that i have enjoyed for quite some time. I read many other peoples blogs, and I listen to countless numbers of pod-casts and the idea of doing my own really intrigues me. Even if it is just to be able to buy some new things for my computer to make fun voices with. LOL

So here is what I have planned. I would like to do a small gaming podcast. I know there are lots out there, but it’s what I like to do. I’ll talk about what I’m playing, what I do or don’t like about the game and if i recommend it. The normal stuff. Hopefully with some encouragement I will stick to a game and play it through so i can give better insight into the game (don’t worry, no spoilers). I will keep it short and sweet and hopefully stay pretty regular with it. I would like to be able to do one at least every two weeks or so. Longer than that and games become old news pretty quick. I will also include games that are coming out that I am excited to play. Another thing I would like to do is to be able to game with you guys and gals from the gaming community and get your take on games and perception of whats going on in the gaming world, or just run around and shoot stuff!! Hopefully I will be able to record game play and integrate that at some point.

Along with gaming, I am a Dad, husband, business owner, and a bartender. All of these things are things that I will talk about at one point or another and believe me I have stories both good and bad about each one of those aspects of my life. But don’t worry, it won’t be a place for me to moan and groan about things. I want people to want to listen.

I want to be more involved in the gaming community and help spread the word when people do charity events.

Would love for some feedback of things you might want to hear and always looking for more people to game with.

I am also looking for some help with artwork and bumpers for different parts of the podcast to help break it up and make it sound nicer. If that is something you are interested in, please let me know.

Thanks in Advance
