  • 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?

    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)

    [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?

    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

    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

    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?

    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

    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
  • Why Deathmatch For Overwatch?!

    Yesterday, Blizzard announced that Overwatch would finally be getting a Deathmatch mode in the game, which will consist of Team Deathmatch and Free-For-All. This is a game mode that much of the Overwatch community has been wanting for quite sometime now... More
  • Majora's Mask - The Unique Struggle Between Order and Disorder

    Majora’s Mask is a fantastically unique game, without a doubt. From its darker tone, fleshed out side characters, and all of its other departures from the Zelda series norms, the game evokes feelings in the player that few games can even hope of... More
  • 31/31 Day 10: Walking Through My Relationship with Walkthroughs

    When I was younger I remember how cool I felt when my dad let me print off a Majora’s Mask walkthough so I could do the Anju and Kafei quest. I was terrified that if I didn’t use a walkthrough, I wouldn’t succeed. I saw walkthroughs... More
