    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
  • 9 Games That Defined My Gaming Experience

    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
  • The Most Godawful Piece of Trash I've Ever Written

    A bit of backstory:

    More
    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

    Mouse Mayhem

    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
  • What I Want From A Mass Effect Prequel

    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 no

    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
  • The Very Best Games of 2012 (Or Close Enough)

    25 1

    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
  • A True American Tale

    7

    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.

    In gaming, few series command the same level of respect as Grand Theft Auto. Rockstar's flagship franchise has been innovating and setting the industry high-water mark for years. The latest entry...

    Modern video games are huge.

    College can be cool sometimes. There's a lot of work and tests involved, but occasionally you get to take interesting classes. This semester I'm trying my hand at programming by taking an introductory-level course on programming. It's nothing... More

    Hey, everybody. Long time no see. Consider this a status update of sorts for those of you who haven't found my Facebook (which should hopefully be all of you). I've been quiet lately. This is my best attempt at breaking the silence. So, what's... More
  • The Most Terrifying Book I've Ever Read

    15

    That's horrifying.

    More
    I like to read, as mentioned previously . You can get some interesting and unique experiences from books. Sometimes, however, I find a book that's too unique. The results can be fascinating and repulsive and horrifying all at once. This happened with... More
  • Reviewing User Reviews

    That's for blogging. Reviews are another matter.

    More
    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
