  • Gaming in Green Country: The Heartland Gaming Expo

    1
    Tulsa, Oklahoma is a fairly strange place for a gaming expo. It's in the mid-northeast part of a state near the middle of the country--hardly a popular tourist destination. Most events that boast the title of "gaming expo" fill up huge auditoriums... More
  • The Barbarians At The #GamerGate

    Achievements - Either you love 'em, or you don't exist. While some enjoy the thrill of finally earning that difficult achievement they've been aiming for, or seeing their gamerscore grow larger than that of their friends and rivals, I enjoy... More
  • Heroic Violence in the God of War Franchise: The Ultimate Postmodern Myth

    7
    I knew I loved God of War from the very first moment I made the pale barbarian Kratos pick up an undead warrior, dig his massive hands into the monster, and savagely rip it in half, showering himself with an arc of red blood. The motion was smooth and... More

  • Parody Spotlight 1: Gotye Somebody That I Used to Know- The Star Wars That I Used to Know

    Although I love music of all kinds, parodies hold a special place in my heart. The combination of comedy and music rarely fails to get a smile on my face, and the best parodies can get stuck in my head more than the original. Also, there have been several... More
  • 2/31 - Stand Alone Co-op

    3
    Playing Far Cry 3's co-op mode - while incredibly fun - I couldn't help but feel as though there was a missed opportunity. Who wouldn't trade in a separate co-op mode for the chance to play through the campaign with 3 friends? 3 SHINY friends... More
