    This summer, I got married. I got a new job. I moved into a new house. I got involved in a new church. And least important (but still cool), I got Xbox Live. I have enjoyed quite a bit of fun online with games like Left 4 Dead 2, but the biggest thing... More

    Neither. Well, for the time being at least. I, like many others, was really looking forward to this years E3. Finally we would be able to see some next-gen games in action, after years of being in development. And for the most part, they didn't disappoint... More
  • Can Management Changes at Nintendo Hurt The Industry?

    In case you haven't heard, the Wii U has not been selling well. I don't know the exact sales numbers but let's just say that if the Big Three got in a fight, the Wii U would look like Jared Leto's face in Fight Club. I plan on buying the... More
