  • A Pain In the Neck (Literally)

    For the past week, my neck's been sore. Normally I'd tough it out and think nothing of it, assuming I probably sprained it at work. No big deal, right? But if you've seen the movie Shutter, then you'll understand why I'm just a little... More
  • The Great Games: 9.00-9.25

    This is the first of a three-part series of posts that I am calling The Great Games . These lists are those video games that I believe represent the best the medium has to offer. If a game that you feel should be included is not, there are four possible... More
  • Nintendo. Where is the NX?

  • The Mighty No. 9 Isn't Fair For Anyone

  • Buswaxer's Bargain Bin Vol. 1

  • The Best Games Period - Episode 33 - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    FUS RO DAH! This week the gang tackles Bethesda's sprawling open-world RPG, Skyrim. The 2011 title released in an incredibly buggy state, but became one of the first major cases of post-release patching. Critics heaped acclaim onto Skyrim, praising... More
  • Man on Fire and Max Payne 3: The Success and Failure of Revenge

    Given the 15 th anniversary of the series, I decided to play through its least-discussed entry – the Rockstar Vancouver-developed Max Payne 3 . I now see why nobody really talks about this game anymore, as it’s a bloated mess of poor narrative... More
  • Telnet Clients are Rad as Hell: Quadrilateral Cowboy and the Games Industry's Legacy of Input

    Lemme tell you folks about the hot and heavy world of IT. I worked for a company called Enterprise Infrastructure for two years (s/o E.I., you da real MVP), which meant I had to interface with telnet/DDoS/SSH/etc. clients almost every day. It was some... More
