  • Range S4: Part 15

    Alphonse awoke well into the day, he walked out to the kitchen, his head pounding with memories from the night before. He saw Jack still unconscious on his couch as he grabbed himself some cereal. He heard a groan halfway though his second bowl, “That... More
  • Unleashing Your Inner Cartoonist-Flipnote Hatena

    Flipnote Studio How many remember seeing or have seen, "flip-books"? Page by page drawings, that when you "flipped" through them, you were treated to a cool, short, animated, cartoon. That is the premise behind Flipnote Studio for... More
  • Trekking through Oblivion to Skyrim: One last playthrough(s) for Oblivion.

  • Story Issues in Current Games That Have Relevance Today


    Games are inspired by reality in so many different ways, especially by story and plot. Sure, there isn't much of a similarity between real life and a game when the galaxy is under attack by a sentient race of god-like machines, or when zombies infest a tropical paradise.  There are, however, connections between some current international events, and other scenarios that games offer to gamers. Some of these real-world conflicts I touch on in this blog are hot topics, so here's a big disclaimer that I hope you will take the time to read.
