  • Gun Violence and Games

    On June 12 th , as news broke of the shooting in Orlando, Justin McElroy expressed the following paraphrased sentiment on twitter: What do we, as an industry, think of our participation in the glorification of weaponry and gun culture? This is a heady... More
  • Backlog Slowdown

    5
    I knew this day would happen eventually: I'm playing games at a slower pace. I once said that by this date of the year I would have beaten 55 games, but things cannot be like we want them sometimes. It's not college nor work, it's me, I was... More
  • Where My Life is Going and Trying to Write Again

    7
    Well here I am again. It's been a good while since I posted anything to this blog-2 years, 3 months, and 9 days to be exact. Frankly, I'm not 100% sure what brought me back. My life is kind of a mess by my own standards. I failed in my writing... More
  • The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD Impressions

    It’s been a real treat to go back to Twilight Princess with the new HD remaster on Wii U. I played through the original when it came out and haven’t really touched it much since (besides starting it again with a friend one time). It’s... More
  • The Black Protagonist

    3
    So, Mafia 3 and Watch Dogs 2 star a black guy...and a lot of people are up in arms about it. You got the immature child cracking racial slurs (because black guys doing crimes is such an age old stereotype..get it?) while others are just up in arms believing... More
  • OVERSEER R-12: LOG#007

    She’s actually made it. I cannot believe I am actually typing this down. Sleeping helped her illness somewhat, but when she woke up she coughed something nasty and attempted to eat her food with little success. Codsworth felt some pity and helped... More
  • The Highs & Lows of E3 2016

    With E3 2016 winding down, I decided to give my thoughts on the announcements. This year was arguably less impressive than 2015 because of the large number of returning properties, but there were still a few good surprises. EA EA probably had the worst... More
  • Days Gone and the Art of Presentation

    1
    Of all the games showcased at this year’s E3, Days Gone is amongst the most conflicting. The conceptual focus of the tech is interesting – put as many zombies on screen at once, and base the AI’s traversal around their sheer numbers... More
  • My E3 2016: Kona, Skylar, Solus & More

    1
    The first day on the show floor I was able to take in some presentations and hands-on time, and came away impressed with each title I saw: Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr; Kona; Forge of Empires (Arctic Age); Skylar & Plux: Adventure on Clover... More
  • Why I’m okay with Link never being a Woman

    1
    Do I think that Link could easily be a woman? Yes. Do I want to be able to play a Zelda game as woman? Sure. Do I think that the decision to keep Link as a male is a big deal? Not really. In a world where so many games offer you a choice of gender, it... More
  • Top 5 Sinister Things We Love to do in Game...

    1
    We love how much we can do in some games. You kill trusted friends without the guilt you would get in real life or even decimating a corpse that was once your enemy. Hello Wandering Traveler and welcome to this top five list of sinister things we love... More
  • My E3 Summary

    Take My Money Mafia 3- I like the direction this game is taking, from the setting to the character. It was risky to not be a typical stereotypical mafioso. The gameplay shown has only confirmed me buying this. Gears of War 4- This was an easy one for... More
