  • Max Payne 3 Is The Least Fun I've Had All Month

    I started playing Max Payne 3 today. Picked it up during a Steam sale and finally cleared up the 30-some gigabytes of storage you need to install the game. It's ridiculous. A few controller hurdles later and I was playing.

    Is a game a game when it has no gameplay?

    Is a game a game when it has no gameplay? That question stayed in my mind while playing Gone Home, an indie PC title. You play as a twentysomething woman named Katie who comes home after a trip to Europe. She finds the house deserted and her family missing... More

    Gamers keep talking about The Stanley Parable, calling it "game of the year" and "revolutionary."

    Gamers keep talking about The Stanley Parable, calling it "game of the year" and "revolutionary." This baffled me. Some indie title based off a Half Life 2 mod is better than everything else in 2013? Even Bioshock Infinite? I played... More

    Dead Space 2 is making my life hell, like the title says. I felt tense last night. Long day. Too much writing for my job. Got some bad news. Wasn't happy. "I'll relax with some video games," I thought. Then I remembered that the only... More

    Strong opinions cut both ways. When you eat your words, everybody remembers. I never liked Macs. They were the overpriced machine of choice for computer-illiterate non-gamers. Nobody smart bought a Mac. Those were for Apple-loving idiots with too much... More
  • Ending on a Low Note

    Too many games seem similar. This one's a shooter. This one's a platformer. This one's an action-adventure game. They all blend together.

    Too many games seem similar. This one's a shooter. This one's a platformer. This one's an action-adventure game. They all blend together. I wanted a unique experience when I picked up 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors. It's an adventure... More

    Normally, I like to write a comprehensive list of the best games of the year when the leaves start changing color. Picking favorites, while inadvisable with children, is fun with video games. Everybody likes labeling their best and brightest. Plus, these... More

    Like many other gamers, I recently picked up Saints Row: The Third for PC in the THQ Humble Bundle. THQ put a bunch of great PC games on a pay-what-you-want sale with the proceeds going to them and charity. I couldn't resist getting Saints Row and... More

    A bit of backstory:

    I'm proud of my writing. Some of it sucks, but most of it is acceptable. Still working on getting it to "good." That's another story. However, even the laziest blog written on my worst day does not compare to the story I'm about... More

    You're killing me, Valve. You guys have terrible timing. I write up a post about the tantalizing possibility of an official Valve-branded console for the living room and you steal my thunder with a confirmation that it's happening . Way to make... More

    The Mass Effect trilogy is done. The story of Commander Shepard has been told. The Reapers came, fought, and (spoilers) were repelled. That story, although awesome, is over. There's nothing more to be said. However, the engines of profit and franchising... More

    Normally I write up a "Best of" post for the cream of the year's gaming crop. However, I only bought three new releases this year. Everything else was secondhand, on sale, or old. It wouldn't be honest for me to pretend I know which... More
