  • A True American Tale

    About a year ago, I finished playing the main campaign of Grand Theft Auto IV. It's one of my favorite games. The open world, satirical culture, and action-filled gameplay make a great experience. In honor of that singular experience, I have extensively edited and rewritten my original review of the game to make it more readable. Tell me what you think.

  • Reviewing User Reviews

    That's for blogging. Reviews are another matter.

    As you may have noticed, I've been blogging less recently. Schoolwork is the biggest problem. Memorizing 900 terms and eight short stories doesn't leave much time for other activities. I also have been focusing more on writing reviews. After almost... More

  • Next-Gen Graphics Might Be Too Realistic For Me

    21

    To be honest... I don't know if that's a good thing.

    One of the highlights coming out of E3 was the premiere of Unreal Engine 4 and a precious few games that admitted to using it to run next-gen graphics. As far as I know, only one of the Final Fantasy games directly stated that their graphics were designed... More
