  • Passing the Torch to the Next Generation

    2017 is going to be a good year for games. There are quite a few I'm looking forward to, but these eight are the games that can't release fast enough for me! 1. Mass Effect: Andromeda - Despite the horrible ending for ME3, I still really enjoyed... More

  • Everything Wrong with Overwatch

    Overwatch. The game that took TF2 players by storm. No, those TF2 players. Get you Titans and roll out or something. I mean, the Class Shooter that was the only one of it's time, with whacky and literally insane characters with large personalities... More
  • My Gaming Goals for 2017

    Congratulations, we survived 2016! For most, it was a hard year full of political turmoil, division in society, and a constant reminder that our childhoood heroes aren't as invincible as we once thought. Thankfully, 2017 is finally here and waiting... More

  • Top 10 Board Games I've Played in 2016 - Part 2

  • Final Fantasy XV and Breaking the Male Code

    Final Fantasy is truly a special and bold video game series. While it has stumbled a bit over the course of its 30 year history, its willingness to create a new universe, cast, style of gameplay, and story theme with each new installment is nothing short... More
  • New Year, New U: Let's Talk Respawns

    It’s happened to all of us: We gear up with our best equipment and step into the room filled with enemies; prepared to engage in a battle where decimate our opponents and look super cool while doing so. Except as we enter, we’re immediately... More
  • Year End Wrap-Up

    I know everyone and their mother is doing one of these right now (thus the "hilarious" stock photo), and my rules are pretty similar to most of them, so I'll keep this brief. Any game I played for the first time was eligible for this list... More
  • Memories That Remain: So Long 2016.

    100 blogs, 31 community writing challenges included and 66 games beaten in 2016, wow, I didn't see all that coming at all. Perhaps the best thing of them all was my grow not only as a gamer nor a writer, but as a person. Turning 22 didn't matter... More
