  • Why I Think The "Original" Playstation 3 Wasn't a E3 "Failure"

    When I read last month's Gameinformer I came across an article named "E3 Failures", an article designed to feed on the missed expectations of E3 attendees and onlookers. I honestly enjoyed the article in the "there was a reason why... More
  • Karma system. Has it really improved games at all?

    Now, I want to say really quickly that I loved inFAMOUS 1 and 2. I'm saying this because I don't want people to think that I really didn't enjoy them, but I've always had a big problem with it. I've had the same problem with Red Dead... More

  • Gaming Can Sure Set You Up For Disappointment in the Real World.....

    When I was growing up, my parents fed me a steady diet of the good old American "pull yourself up by the bootstraps" mentality with a hearty dose of "anyone can become the President or get rich and successful as long as they REALLY TRY... More
  • Range S4: Part 1

    It's time for the next installment of Range. Alphonse was sleeping peacefully in bed when he felt a presence. “Hm?” He looked up groggily and saw a figure in his window. “Kate, that you?” “Nope, can’t say I know... More
  • The Joy of Playing Together

    Recently, I purchased Pokemon HeartGold for the DS. I had never thought of buying another pokémon game since the Gameboy version of Silver that I bought, oh, so many years ago. However, that changed. One of the fellows that I work with also brought... More
  • My Favorite DS Games
