Project Shanks Gaming: Let’s Play Serial Cleaner – Part 1

Well, this turned out to be delightful. Initially thought this game would be a quick little bridge to my next series but I’ll be damned if I’m not invested. It’s a retro theme for a unique title -speed/stealth adventure. Nicely done!

Project Shanks Gaming: Lets Play AM2R – Part 15 (Final)

All good things must come to an end. Thankfully video games generally give you one hell of a finale before they end (Unless they’re Metroid: Other M). We’ve reached the Queen Metroid and it’s time to end the metroid menace. Enjoy the fireworks, and then stay for the charming epilogue.

Man, the Omega Metroid doesn’t mess around! The pinnacle of the Metroid species (outside of the 0.01 that can become Queen Metroids), the Omega is pretty much a Tyrannosaurus Rex to the Zeta Metroid’s Velociraptor… This should be fun!

Fans of Metroid Fusion likely recognize this boss. What’s cool is the way in which they implement him. Everything on the ship in fusion is designed to mimic the Metroid homeworld of SR388, meaning everything cloned from there must have gotten its DNA sampling from there. Thus, the Serris X we fight in Fusion could only exist if the real Serris had existed on SR388. This boss fight is proof of that. Same goes for an earlier boss fight, Arachnus, and no, he’s not a spider but rather the Armadillo looking thing.

I know I say this a lot, but this game’s attention to detail is incredible. I’m honestly sad I’m approaching the end of it.

Project Shanks Gaming: Lets Play Horrors of the Deep Part 2

This is… wow. Safe to say, Horrors of the Deep has finally broken Darreck. It’s like a slow motion car crash we can’t turn away from.

To strive for 100% completion in a Metroid game is to know true pain. Thankfully, to obtain the gravity suit and find another Easter Egg is to be rejuvenated! It’s a delicate balance…

Project Shanks Gaming: Lets Play AM2R Part 11

We’re nearing our end with AM2R, and Darreck’s enthusiasm levels are beginning to get a bit excessive. Hang tight people, things are beginning to get a little weird.

Texas Rangers at the Trade Deadline

Texas Rangers and Dallas Cowboys Writer

The Texas Rangers find themselves in an interesting position after today’s 4-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals. They are currently 16.5 games back in the division and 3 games back in the wild card race to the Rays and Yankees. The Rangers have several impending free agents, including Yu Darvish, Andrew Cashner, Jonathon Lucroy, and Carlos Gomez, many of whom would be coveted by contending teams should the Rangers decide to sell. They also have veterans such as Mike Napoli, Cole Hamels, and Adrian Beltre who teams would also likely be interested in.
