YouTube Highlights, Weekly Edition #54

Happy weekend, everyone! Um, well…happy almost-weekend might be more appropriate. But even so, the actual weekend is a mere handful of hours away, and are ever so glad for it!

Favorite Running Gags in Games

It’s April Fool’s Month on Virtual Bastion! Join us as we celebrate all the silly and kooky things we love about games and gaming. My first theme for the month is running gags.

Is Gaming Teachable?

I’m not one for having random conversations on public transportation, but every now and then, a random human manages to briefly crack my self-imposed shell.
