  • The Ending to Mass Effect Is Still Bad

    21

    And yet... I didn't love the ending. (Side note: This blog is spoiler-free)

    More
    In case you haven't heard, the Extended Cut to Mass Effect 3 came out. The DLC is supposed to clear up some lingering questions about the final moments of the trilogy without fundamentally changing anything that happened in the endings. Shepard's... More
  • Well. Dead Space Is Terrifying.

    18

    Dead Space is scary.

    More
    Remember a while back when I lamented the lack of games that could actually scare me? You all really stepped up to the plate with a whole lot of games that sound terrifying. By far the most common suggestion was to play Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Rest... More
  • Game Informer for iPad Is Downright Magical

    Basically, GI digital just got a whole lot better.

    More
    You know what's the worst part about subscribing to Game Informer? Magazine subscriptions. As much as I love GI, they are unfortunately like every other magazine in the world in that all of them are remarkably slow. Slow to deliver, slow to change... More
  • Not Much Scares Me Anymore (Except That One Thing)

    29 1

    Except Limbo.

    More
    One of the inevitable parts of playing video games is becoming desensitized to violence and scary stuff. Maybe it's just me, but over time I've become a whole lot less affected by seeing characters get chopped in half or messily killed. Chalk... More
  • The Microsoft E3 Presentation Was More For Tech People, Not Gamers

    7

    Windows 8.

    More
    Usually for E3, I sit back and read the results a few days after the fact. This year, I had a pretty good amount of spare time and a fast internet connection. Throw those two things together and you get the perfect recipe for actually watching the Microsoft... More
  • The Miiverse Is A Bad Idea

    18

    Somehow I doubt it.

    More
    The news is out. Nintendo is finally joining the current generation of consoles with a new system for creating virtual characters and sharing them online. Gee, if only that had been done before... perhaps by a company called Microsoft... oh, to dream... More
  • The Short Guide to Buying a Smartphone

    9

    One of the most common questions I get as a person who reviews cell phones for a living is, "Which one is your favorite?" Usually when this question comes up, I feel the briefest flash of annoyance. The question is only a little bit annoying, though. The overwhelming majority of people can't be expected to know or even care about the differences between modern smartphones.

  • Buying New Games Scares Me

    18

    So why bother replacing it?

    More
    This whole week has been a very long and very boring one for me, the main reason being that my laptop is in the shop. My poor HP Envy 14 was suffering from a broken screen. I couldn't even use the thing without plugging it into an external display... More
  • I Took Apart My Xbox

    One of the ever-present joys of owning an Xbox 360 is the failure rate. Red Ring of Death,

    More
    One of the ever-present joys of owning an Xbox 360 is the failure rate. Red Ring of Death, E74, and countless other errors have forced plagued loyal Xbox owners and provided PS3 fanboys with an endless well of jokes. To be perfectly honest, the physical... More

    Lost- Sawyer's backstory

    More
    Games are great. Don't get me wrong, they're how I kill a great deal of time. However, they're not quite the only form of entertainment. Television is a pretty solid way to get entertainment in serial form. Provided that your favorite show... More

    Andy McNamara Is Secretly An Alien

    More
    One of the downsides of trying to write is that sometimes, it just won't come. As much as I like to write, not every day is a good day for producing quality material. Over the past two years of blogging, these ideas have really stacked up. It's... More

    The Road by Cormac McCarthy

    More
    After stirring up a bit of a hornet's nest yesterday (who knew people felt strongly about piracy?), I think I'll go back to a safe topic. Like reading. Gaming is by no means the only hobby available to us. There's plenty of other ways to entertain... More
