    3 1
    WELCOME TO ANOTHER DO GAMERS KNOW THEIR COVER ART! If this is your first time allow me to explain how this works. I will post a picture of a video game's cover art almost entirely blacked out. Each picture after that will slowly reveal more of the... More
  • A Growing Gamer: Of Willingness And Determination

  • Comparing Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn

    I haven't figured out how to tell how long I've been playing Zelda on my Switch, but I've been playing about 3-4 hours a day all week, sometimes five, and I think I've got a good handle on the world and what it's like. I feel like... More
  • Frank Rising - It Sucks!

    [As Originally Written on SNo2 .] Somewhere within the first seven minutes of listening to and watching the latest iteration of Game Informer’s long-running podcast/video series, I realized that I wanted to do one of my rarer pieces in which I list... More
  • Community Writing Challenge: Games as Historical Fiction

    This week’s CWC can also be read as “Haley’s Senior Comps – Digital Soldiers: How First-Person Shooters Impact Our Understanding of War, Violence, and Death”. I’ve been pretty quiet about my senior project on here,... More
  • More Thoughts on Mass Effect Andromeda

    ... What? I'm sorry I've been distracted by Breath of the Wild. You know they share some things in common, like frame drops and object pop in. But here's the thing: Nintendo has managed to craft an amazingly alive world. I expect the only... More
