Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 4

This season was shorter with only 6 episodes, compared to the usual 8/9 of the previous seasons (I’m  counting season 1 with the pilot episodes, as that’s also how the DVDs are distributed). There are some highlights in terms of location in this season, with one episode taking place on a cruise ship and another…

Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 3

The season continues on strong after the second one. The cases are very varied in terms of perpetrators and themes. During this season, Columbo takes a more active role in convicting the culprit, laying out a trap in multiple episodes (he did trick the perpetrators in one episode of the previous season – “Dagger of…

Software Recommendation: Stardock Groupy

When a lot of apps are open in Windows, things can become a bit confusing. A tool like Groupy can help with that. When it is active, you can (as the name implies) group apps together, so you can keep them in one place and switch in between them through tabs (even comes with a…

Currently Playing: Actraiser (Day 2 – End)

After going through the Act 2 level in Bloodpool again, I bluntly beat down the second phase of the boss with magic and continued on to Kasandora. The first level here was a bit annoying, but doable and the boss went down after I cast the selected spell a few times. Building the city in…

Main Quest Progress After discussing a plan in a nearby camp, the party infiltrated the Empire base at night, destroyed some Magitek soldiers and mechs to get the Regalia back.

Currently Playing: ActRaiser (Day 1)

To have a look at an older game again, I decided to try out ActRaiser on the SNES. I could tell pretty early on that this potentially won’t be one of the titles I play through, but just as far as my motivation takes me. The first level wasn’t so bad, I got through it…

Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 2

This season gives Columbo a lot more character. His dog makes its first appearance in the first episode and is seen again in the seventh. Most of the scenes used for Columbo are done in a humorous way, like showing him stumbling down the roadside or the way he tries to find a name for…

Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 1

Columbo is one of those series that I love to re-watch every few years or so, I just don’t get tired of it. The concept is great, the characters are well-written and the time period it was created in (the first pilot episode came out in 68) means the whole thing looks and feels very…

Currently (Re)Playing – Final Fantasy 15 (5)

Another rather short session, this time only with main quest progress. Main Quest Progress Finished the drive to the disc and entered the dungeon area, found the 4th Royal Arm near the entrance. After going through the dungeon, I fought Titan and – by destroying one of his arms – got my first summon. At…
