Expand Your Mind
Jolt the Cynic
on Sep 18, 2016 at 11:40 AM
Video game expansions are a tricky thing. They are meant to expand on the main game in a worthwhile way. Whether it be through advancements in gameplay or fleshing out the story or even tying together loose ends, expansions can make a game feel complete...

Gamifying My Way to a Healthier Life
on Sep 16, 2016 at 03:13 PM
I had a teacher in high school who loved to share details of her personal life with us. After one particularly bad breakup, she gave us a piece of advice that I’ll never forget: Any day can be the first day of your new year. There’s never...

Moon Hunters Review: A Mythical Groundhog's Day
on Sep 15, 2016 at 04:38 PM
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...
Overwatch: It's Game and Story...
on Sep 15, 2016 at 11:40 AM
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...

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...

Gun to My Head: On Tension Through Empowerment in Mr. Robot
on Sep 14, 2016 at 11:52 AM
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...
Battlefield 1 Beta Impressions (Video)
on Sep 14, 2016 at 09:43 AM
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...
