  • Remembering the Red Ring of Death: A Media Majors Podcast Companion Piece

    I co-host the Media Majors podcast, where my friend Liam and I try to one-up each other with weird and wild stories from our preferred mediums – film/TV and gaming/internet culture, respectively. This is a companion piece to Episode 6: The Monroe... More
  • Moon Hunters Review: A Mythical Groundhog's Day

    I say that I love a game a lot…to the point that I feel like I overuse the word in my reviews. Maybe it’s just me giving everything the benefit of the doubt or being easily entertained. But this time I genuinely mean it – I love the... More
  • Overwatch: It's Game and Story...

    Overwatch has become of one of the best games out there within the few days it's been shown to the public in 2014. The story is great as well as the game itself, but what good are they together? I mean, there is a deep and powerful narrative in the... More
  • Social Gaming

    When I was a kid, video games were not as…accepted as they are today. I remember my mother taking photos of me playing my SNES and saying that I’ll look back and laugh at the stupid things I used to do. I thought that she was crazy. And who... More

  • SweatShop Video Review: Gets Gross Fast

    A gun, held even, raises. Its sleek barrel points with quiet menace. It is poised, ready to kill with the careless effort of pulling a trigger. Crack! Dead. And yet it yields no threat. Holds no power. This is because the gun – or knife, or fist... More
  • Battlefield 1 Beta Impressions (Video)

    I recently did a rambling video upon Battlefield 1's open beta for PS4. Essentially, I have problems with it, but still remain optimistic for the full release. As far as my videos go, I'm hoping to get back into them. Games, anime, shows, movies... More
  • Community Writing Challenge: My Favorite Weather/Season Inspired Pokémon

    Art by miski (please check her out. I love her. I also own this on a shirt) I actually had a hard time with this week’s challenge. The only season related game I could think of was Oracle of Seasons and I just didn’t know what to talk about... More
  • Am I A Fanboy?

    “Are you a fanboy?” a teenager asked, as I sat in the hospital waiting room. At first I didn’t know who he was talking to, but he was staring right at me. “Your shirt” he said, raising a finger to point. That day, I was wearing... More
