Checkpoint: Year 2015 Edition

2015. It’s just like any other year except now I have more things to watch around the New Year festivities including Premier League and La Liga soccer. NBA has fallen off the wayside for me. I used to watch the Christmas Day matches and some of the New Year ones but now it may just be late playoff rounds.

This weekend is all about La Liga soccer and NFL wildcard playoff which have been entertaining despite the predictable outcomes. For Sunday’s match ups, I predict a Bengals victory and a Dallas victory but I won’t be disappointed if I’m completely wrong.

Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Review

posted in: Reviews 0

“Good things come to those who wait.”

I never intended to play Grand Theft Auto V on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. I was confident that a PC release would debut shortly after the initial console release. Nine long months later, in June of this year, Rockstar officially confirmed the existence of a PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions of their 2013 best seller. The PC version wasn’t going to make it this year and since I didn’t want to roll the dice on that version, I decided to go with the PlayStation 4 release.

Checkpoint: Week 17 Edition

Can you believe it? It’s already week 17 of the 2014-15 NFL season. This Sunday afternoon, I’m watching Philip Rivers get sacked repeatedly by the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs snuffed out the Chargers’ playoff hopes. Is it surprising? Not really. Am I going to lose sleep over it? Of course not but I am wondering where the season went.

It’s true that I’ve been paying more attention to the Premier League, La Liga and Champions League this year but it’s not like I’ve been ignoring NFL games. I’ve taken one or two weeks “off” where I’m not paying as close attention to the games but I’m always following up with storylines through headlines and Sports Illustrated MMQB features. I guess time just flies in the NFL.

Checkpoint: I Typed Way Too Much Edition

Checkpoint - I Typed Way Too Much Edition

Over the last week, I believe I churned in well over 8000 words through Twitter and the round-up. As a result, there’s a bit of a numbing sensation on my finger tips and at one point, a tiny bit of pain. This has never happened to me before. Then again, I was never as punctual and comprehensive as I was with this year’s GameDealsCanada postings.

With that in mind, I’m going to keep today’s post short.

I’m playing Grand Theft Auto V and while I have Smash Bros. for Wii U on hand, that will be left on the back burner while I tackle Rockstar’s latest and greatest. And it is pretty great.
