    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

    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
  • We May Have Accidentally Solved Piracy

    23

    Editor's note: It has been pointed out that this paragraph might be a teensy bit illegal. It has been redacted.

    More
    Piracy is something you hear about quite often in gaming, especially on the PC side of things. It's hard to go a week without someone trotting out those discouraging statistics showing that far more people will steal a game than pay for it, or just... More

    What do you think? Have you read/seen The Golden Compass? If not, does it sound vaguely interesting?

    More
    I realize my blogs have been on a bit of a book spree lately. It's kind of the theme for this week. Anyway, I was thinking back to one of the better books I read recently. Maybe you've heard of The Golden Compass before. A lot of people view it... More
  • Weird Should Be A Compliment

    19

    Why is that?

    More
    One thing has always struck me when talking to other people. For whatever reason, way too many of them seem to think that the word "weird" is some sort of insult. If you call a movie or a book or a video game weird, it means that you didn't... More
  • Finding Co-Op Partners Is Easy When You Know Where To Look

    So, what happened while I was gone?

    More
    Hello, all. It's me again. God knows it's been quite a while. I think by now this blog qualifies for some sort of award from Saint. It's been a very, very long time since I last posted. If anyone remembers me, yay. For most of you who won't... More
  • The Online Pass Is Terrible (But Here's How To Do It Right)

    19

    More
    One of the more controversial parts of the latest generation of gaming is the advent of so-called "online passes." Invented by publishers in a time of need, they are seen by the industry as a necessity and by some gamers as a majestic injustice... More
