  • Hack Your Reality

    [As Originally Read on SNo2 .] Observer has been drawing a lot of interest lately- not just because it features a former Blade Runner acting talent, but because it also features a decaying cyberpunk setting and some scary technological possibilities.... More
  • My Journey To the “Best” Video Game Store In NYC

    2
    I thought up a lot of other titles I could have used while writing this blog. Titles like— “The death of brick and mortar” “The digital revolution is upon us” “The dark age of physical rare collectibles” With... More
  • GTA: San Andreas IOS - Lesser Sadism

    GTA is a *** nightmare on mobile. Much like how it was a trend to port over PS2 and Xbox era classics with mixed results, it was always the controls that utterly ruined the experience. Tomb Raider (yeah, the PSone classic) is ungodly frustrating but do... More
  • More on the One Drop Rule

    The one drop rule is an old, discredited, and illegal manner of excluding darker skin colors from employment, voting, and other aspects of public life. It is being (perhaps unwittingly) resurrected by those who champion diversity because they judge everyone... More
  • What Happens When Both Sides Are Wrong?

    2
    So it turns out my family and I were within just a few miles of the mayhem in Charlottesville. We drove from our home in NC to PA on Saturday, and due to a strange series of events found ourselves on US 29 instead of one of the Interstates like normal... More
  • Opening Pandora's Box (The Right Way)

    1
    [As Originally Read on SNo2 .] If you’re thrown for a loop as to why I’m talking about a game that has been out for roughly five years to this point and that even has a re-released edition that is pushing two to three years, don’t worry... More
  • 31/31 Day 13: When Does A Game Stop Holding Up?

    3
    This summer I broke out my old Nintendo handhelds and it’s been enlightening. Behind the nostalgia though, is a really big conversation about how it feels to go back to older games. Is there a point where they just don’t hold up and aren’t... More
  • Middle Earth - Foreshadow Of War

    I'm surprised people are shocked that Shadow of War has microtransactions. Way back when I wrote about this game when all it offered was a few concept art and a useless trailer (which was my gripe about the game to begin with) it also listed in-app... More
  • 31/31 Day 12: Replay Value

    3
    I have plenty of new content just waiting to be played, watched, and read. But for some reason, I can’t shake the urge to go back to games I’ve already beat. The urge to replay is starting to outweigh the new experiences patiently waiting... More
  • A Breath of Fresh Air

    3
    Since the beginning of the year we have seen an amazing flow of game releases. The kind of games I am personally interested in have been abundant. I've enjoyed Gravity Rush 2, Nioh, Horizon ZD, Zelda BotW, and even the final Dark Souls 3 DLC. After... More
  • 31/31 Day 11: Can You Cover A Game?

    3
    One of my favorite things in the world are cover albums. Musicians I love covering songs that they love? What’s better than that? But, is there a translate the idea of a cover or a remix into games? Now, I know that this isn’t actually possible... More
  • Diversity and the One Drop Rule

    4
    Imran Khan's "Our Take" in the story about Blizzard's diversity memo was an outrageously immoral thing to say. I wouldn't change it or try to hide it, but Andy or Reiner or someone more senior needs to take him aside and tell him... More
